I've Turned

Back in 07, I was all for Kevin. I was not disappointed in the Government that ensued, nor the policies it came up with. In 2010, I supported Labor primarily on the NBN policy. I was happy with most policy of the Gillard Government, and satisfied with all policy bar one particular policy decision regarding live export. 

The policy advantages of Labor that I have leant towards have been virtually neutralised. For one, the NBN is going to happen, and it is hard to believe that the LNP could make a mess of it now. 

Secondly, the economic cycle has shifted enough that conservative instincts are likely to be the most beneficial to the country.

It is all going on in a faraway corner of idea space that seems unreal and irrelevant to me. Whatever happens, I know my freedoms will be eroded and there will be no movement back towards economic or moral rationality.

I remain concerned that Australia may squander our Australian moment through bad policy. Nothing really stands out from either side as being decisively Euro-worthy in scope.

Ow, it is painful being so timid and having a twitter account in my real name. Always I self-censor so much :(

Why do you self-censor? I have a pragmatic - What is the worst thing that can happen? Attitude. I censor as much in private emails as I do tweets. That is not very much, but aware that anything could become public in the future, and that things can't be "unsaid"

A lame desire to avoid confrontation.
