I struggle to understand what any Australian party aims for now. It seems most parties are only there to do whatever is necessary to help themselves.
From that has emerged a trend of independent candidates for seats in national and state elections, because political parties are tainted.
Traditional political parties are polarized against each other. Labor hates Liberals. National Farmers Federation hates Greens. Democrats are probably hated for something, been a long time since they've made the mainstream news though.
Other parties are involved, some like The Clive Palmer Party are driven by his billions of dollars. Some like Pauline Hanson's One Nation Party come about due to frustration and idealism.
