With all of the problems we are currently facing in this country (esp. jobs), why are we sending billions of our dollars to Egypt and Israel when Egypt has not reformed its political structure (it's more of a dictatorship) and Israel has not made peace with the Palestinians (it's more of a theocracy)?

What democratic societies should learn lessen from Australia election 2010:

1. What productive action Gillard Labor government 5 billions to UN buys ousted PM Kevin Rudd’s face?

Voter’s pains did not link to high income Politicians and Bureaucracy.

The Australia historical hung parliament demonstrated the big gap of inequality society between the small educated elite groups who get highest pay by talk feast used mouth work controlling live essential resources of the country in every social platforms against the biggest less educated groups who get lowest pay by hands work squeezed by discriminative policies that sucking live blood from individual poor/less wealth off?

Voters’ voices do not hear?
Voters’ pains do not ease?
Voters’ cries do not care?

1. Poverty will not be phase out if no fairer resources to share;
2. Illness will not be reducing if no preventive measurement in real action;
3. Agriculture will not be revitalize if urbanization continuing its path;
4. Housing affordability will not be reach for young generation if government continues cashing from young generation debt by eating out the whole cake of education export revenue without plough back;
5. Manufacture industry will shrink smaller and smaller if no new elements there to power up to survive;
6. Employability will not in the sustainable mode for so long as manufacture and agriculture not going to boost.
