How to make the best choice

Posted on: 5 October 2011

Posted to The Chronicle, Canberra, Tuesday 4 October, 2011  

I know the next ACT election isn’t until October 2012, but if you aren’t prepared for it you could end up voting for someone who becomes a Member in a Government you think couldn’t run a market stall, never mind a City State.

It might even be a government that would make 2012 to 2016 years so dismal they will be ingrained permanently on your mind as unforgettable. Remember, your vote is valuable, so make sure you give it to someone you think will use it well. 

How do you manage that? Well let me declare my bias straight away. When the time comes, and without regard to my personal opinion, if you follow The Chronicle’s reports on candidates, you won’t go far wrong when it comes to choosing those you think should be elected.  

On the other hand perhaps you think you’d be better off using a crystal ball to help you make a choice. I know some folk favour the crystal ball approach. However if you decide to join the crystal ball club for voters, let me offer a piece of advice: don’t buy a used one but a new one. You can bet your last dollar that if a used one is being offered for sale it’s because it didn’t work well and left its owner with nothing but bad memories of the last three years and the possibility that next year won’t be much better.

On the other hand and even if you’ve never believed in the forecasts given by star sign   astrologers, thousands of people swear by them as better than listening to Members and potential Members of the Assembly forecast what they have in store for you.

And here are some more suggestions. If neither of these approaches appeal, and though you will have to pay a small fee, perhaps you should engage the services of either a rune caster or the reader of animal entrails both of whom will forecast the political futures of current and would be Assembly members.

If a week is a long time in politics clearly with a year to go in the ACT, it’s important you make the right choice before trooping down to the polling booth and assigning your hopes for four years to a motley crew of seventeen people of whom you know little.

At the same time a word of warning about what you see in your own crystal ball or the forecasts of the rune caster, reader of entrails or what the stars foretell. You will need to exercise great caution when examining these forecasts in case a Federal election is called before October. If that happens and the rune caster, reader of entraiIs or star sign astrologers can’t tell the difference between Federal and Territory elections their forecasts could be as useful as those given by those who tip winners of horse and greyhound races.

Putting the ACT election aside for a moment, I wonder why Prime Minister Julia Gillard doesn’t make more use of her Welsh heritage and call in the Druids to help her avoid being suddenly surprised by the need of a Federal election. Let me suggest she hire some Druids because the political gurus she’s using don’t seem to have mastered the knack of accurate predicting.

Although a federal election is possible, I think the ACT election next October is the election that will interest most ACT citizens. If it doesn’t, it should. They should be more interested in who they want to operate government on their behalf for the next four years. It will be too late after the election is over to say these are not the people I want to look after my affairs.

As yet, apart from Labor, Liberal and Greens, we don’t know who will be seeking government although I understand the Democrats, Community Alliance, other parties and individuals aspire to gaining seats in the Assembly.

But another word of warning, if you’re a long time Labor, Liberal, or Green supporter perhaps instead of voting for them without thinking, you should examine the policies of the latter groups and individuals. Indeed you might find them more attractive than those of the former.

These are words of wisdom. However, The Chronicle wasn’t delivered in my neck of the woods last week and hasn’t yet made an appearance this week either. It’s a good thing that your articles can be read here. The Chronicle’s delivery appears to be becoming erratic again. It’s a pity, because people need to read articles like this one, and your articles on candidates are unbiased, unlike most these days. Not all senior citizens have computers, and there are a lot of us in the ACT.

Hello Webmaster, I noticed that is ranking pretty low for some keywords, this may be due to the new Google Panda update, or it could be due to a variety of other factors. I’m sure you already know about On-page SEO, where Google cares highly about proper formatting of various H1/H2/H3 tags, having your main keyword appear in the beginning of your post and having your post end with the keyword, along with having keyword related alt tags and very relevant LSI. However, you do not seem to have the proper Keywords or relevant Keywords in your posts and in the website. Right now you need a tool or plugin that will allow you to check on Keyword insights, search trends and check for backlink analysis and to find out your Keyword competition.
