we're serious about sex
re anonymous coward- it is interesting that most of the political corro I have had is from disenchanted labor and Lib party members . I think that we will more likely attract a lot of people who are just disengaged with politics rather than Greens voters.
Our campaigning to date as been through the adult industry whose customers represent 30% of the electorate. While some of them will be Greens votes they are a very broad cross section of the population.
We need to get about 10% of the vote in one state to win a seat in the upper house. I think that Australians are getting tired of the creeping social conservatism in politics and the close links our current government and opposition has with groups like the Christian Lobby. We are also seeing very socially conservative parties gaining footholds in parliaments around the country and I believe that the Sex Party can be an antidote to them.
