When it comes to mixing politics with sex, the first thing that happens is the tabloids order more paper and ink. But in this case a political party looks to properly numb up the tabloid’s mouth with an ample dose of Novocaine.
This could go down in the history of politics as the ‘Up Yours’ vote. Putting all things aside, people generally fee most if not all governments are too invasive in peoples sex lives. So imagine of you would seeing people getting elected into office along a 1960’s style sexual revolution that all started with the first birth control pill. Imagine what it would be like to get religious intervention out of the bed. Imagine being able to send people who thrive on political correctness into a tail spin not knowing what way is up. Well imagine no more.
This looks to be a fun watch to see how people actually vote. Will the sudden urge to make a statement vote happen in the solitude privacy of the voting booth or not is a big question. In the movies the in your face scenes that attack the system often raise a cheer in the theater as someone is properly put in their place. To some this thought is delightfully intoxicating.
The Tea party movement in the USA is being powered by that same energy, and if it can hold itself together until elections, there may be a lot of reserved for parking signs being changed around the seat of power.
MELBOURNE (AFP) – The Australian Sex Party on Tuesday promised to spice up campaigning for next month’s elections with a manifesto “unlike Australia had ever seen before”.
Party chief Fiona Patten launched a risque national campaign at a Melbourne bar, saying her policies “would make (opposition Leader) Tony Abbott’s hair stand on end and would turn (Prime Minister) Julia Gillard’s hair grey”. prospective
“We’ve always been forward and we actually enjoy real action,” Patten said, mocking Gillard and Abbott’s “Moving Australia Forward” and “Stand Up For Real Action” slogans.
The party’s policies include legalising euthanasia, decriminalising all drugs for personal use, and watering down strict anti-pornography laws.
Although sure to attract criticism from church groups and other conservative elements in society, Patten said it was time an Australian political party pushed the boundaries.
Patten said personal freedom issues affect people’s lives more often than tax or immigration, and wanted to break down “nanny state” policies that she said had been built up over several decades by the major parties.
While the party will struggle for mainstream support, Patten remained confident of at least one Sex Party candidate being elected to the country’s Senate.
“In the privacy of the polling booth, anything could happen,” she said.
The Sex Party is running a candidate against Abbott in his Sydney electorate, a comedian who has offered to doorknock voters wearing a “mankini” — a type of bikini designed for men.
