If i am in a designated "target area", I may be raided

be strip searched, my possesions may be seized and disposed..

If i resist, I may be imprisoned for 2 years..

I thought Australia stopped following other peoples opinion when they
'abolished' England as the motherland. What the hell is this? Is there some
sort of 'whoever gets most of americas shit on their tongue wins' contes
that i dont know of? Is there a cash prize? 'I love America!'

Alas no. This is why one of our Opposition members describes our current Prime Minister as 'arse licker'. Regardless of the Party Politics, there is a (IMHO) disturbing trend in Oz to follow the USA, even if it means replacing our 'democratic system' with the American 'democracy by bank balance' system. I'm not saying the Oz interpretation of Westminster Government is perfect, but based on my experience (I've lived in USA and Mexico during elections) there is at least a vague sembelance of representation in our system.

Since this is now WAY off topic, if you wish to discuss my extreme politics with me please take it off list.
