The Australian people have a fairy tale view of our democracy which causes them to be deprived of the benefits that democracy that it can bring. Those who understand it benefit greatly. Those who don’t suffer. FairGO, Voters Network, Votergrams and Peak Body Voterlobby have helped Australians guide government for 35 years.
Now Voters Network is offering the opportunity to every Australian voter or potential voter.

In truth democracy is pretty much the same in the USA, UK, France, Germany, NZ and many other countries where it is also misunderstood, causing voter frustration. The solutions are easy but require a small amount of time effort and money.
A good starting point is to join Voters Network, contact me, Greg or send a Votergram to all Members of Parliament telling them what you want and why. FairGO and the Votergram service have been helping Australians to do that for 35 years, quietly without fuss.
You can build your own Voters Network Interest Group to promote the issue that most concerns you or join an existing interest group.
