My Civic Duty

Yesterday I sourced out the Australian Consulate in Osaka, which is a very cramped, unimpressive office in a tall building which is mostly mall, clearly there are less of us to serve here than I thought. My purpose was to vote.

Generally speaking, I am not a overly political person, however my interest has been piqued in this particular election, due to my absolute detestation of the views of one of the party leaders. I cannot think of anything worse than prospect of this person becoming Australia's highest representative, and I will do everything in my power to oppose it. My power being limited in this capacity to my one little vote. So I shuffled into the cardboard polling booth set up in the dingy little office, and cast my one vote, in the hope that it will become a single drop in an ocean of like-minded votes.

Time will tell.
