Company Tax Cuts are needed but Senator Burston is wrong to cross the floor!

As a conservative libertarian I support the Australian Government’s plan for company tax cuts. I believe that more money in the hands of business means they can invest more on the progression of their business. This progression means more staff, more infrastructure and more innovation which all leads to growth within an economy. Singapore has a company tax rate of 17% compared to Australia’s 30% – they are our close neighbors. US President Trump recently cut their company tax rates down to 21% from 35%. If Australia wants to be competitive within the world market we ought to do something about our company taxes and given that Singapore is in close proximity to Australia, one must not be surprised if company’s invest more there.

Pauline Hanson’s One Nation (PHON) holds crucial votes in trying to pass this dynamic move by the Federal Government. Senator Hanson – Leader of PHON – who once supported the cuts, decided to pull her support and implemented a set of demands. In terms of political capital this can only benefit PHON as it can demonstrate they can negotiate whilst flexing their muscles.

Senator Hanson’s demands are issues which are ‘red hot’ amongst voters. Immigration is spiraling out of control and we are seeing migrants not assimilating and thus creating ghetto’s; pensioners are struggling to keep warm over winter because they can’t afford their power bills yet we seem to give billions of dollars in foreign aid. These issues are real and PHON – rightly so – have managed to find a way to address these issues through negotiating with the Government over it’s company tax cut plan.

Today, PHON Senator Brian Burston has announced that he will go against the will of his leader and support these company tax cuts. Senator Burston’s move have done nothing to help the One Nation cause. In fact many media outlets are reporting that One Nation is divided and Hanson herself has come out swinging against him, hinting that he probably wont be pre-selected for NSW Senate ticket at the next Federal Election. Senator Burston has been poorly advised on this issue. This issue goes beyond company tax cuts, it goes deep into the soul of what One Nation wants to achieve as a political force within the senate. On the other hand, Pauline Hanson herself should have shut down any suggestion that there is a rift and kept this in house.

Senator Burston is a honourable man. What he says and what he does he truly believes in but in politics sometimes it’s important to hold your tongue to ensure the greater good is achieved. The greater good by holding back on supporting these great tax cuts is that PHON could have achieved a serious conversation about immigration, energy policy and the living standards of our pensioners. Unfortunately PHON looks like a divided political party on the brink of destruction.

The Bullying of Shanghai Sam. #pmlive #auspol #patriotblue #abetterway

I am not a fan of Shanghai Sam. I think the guy is a weasel and a political opportunist who uses his kids and minorities to his advantage.

At the end of the day he is an elected Senator of the Australian Senate. Whether you like him or not, he does deserve some respect.

What we have seen by Patriot Blue – an uneducated far right group – is nothing but racist and bullying behaviour. If you have seen the footage of what occurred you almost feel sorry for Shanghai Sam. It actually made me feel sick and ashamed.

Calling someone a monkey or attacking someone purely just because of their religious background is not right, it is in fact bigotry. I for one classify myself as a Libertarian/Conservative and have defended the alt-right but equally I am also willing to call out any actions they take that is abhorrent to normal society.

I am calling on the likes of Pauline Hanson and Cory Bernardi to condemn the actions of Patriot Blue because these actions does nothing but harm the cause of the alt-right in Australia.

Liberal hound dogs…….crying all the time. #auspol #australianconservatives #burqaban

Well well well, the National Party have shown their true colours this weekend. There was a motion before their National Conference wanting to ban the burqa in public spaces. The Burqa, which is a sign of oppression, covers the face of women (or men) which often can be used for sinister purposes and is potential to be a threat to National Security. Nationals MP George Christensen was pushing for the National Party to ban the Burqa but unfortunately the lefty trolls within the Nats voted against it 55-51.

The National Party in Australia is known to be the Liberal Party lap dog. They have no real policies but ride on the back of the Liberal Party. Sadly the National Party is just a country wing of the Libs which is concerning for long term members of the National Party. The rise of One Nation, Australian Conservatives and in NSW the Shooters, Fishers and Farmer’s Party one would have thought the National Party would have dumped the Liberal Party and be a true centre right alternative. There was somewhat hope for the Nats when Barnaby Joyce became leader. When he was in the Senate he was a straight shooter Senator and did not care about political correctness. These days Joyce is just the twiddledum to the Liberals twiddledee. 

To those who are dissapointed in the National Party’s decision to reject Christensen’s motion, there is a better way. Don’t be a Liberal hound dog, you will always be welcome to join the fastest growing political party in Australia. The Australian Conservatives. 

My WA Election Prediction #onenation #WaElection #auspol #paulinehanson

The WA State Election will be an interesting one. The rise of Pauline Hanson’s One Nation will put a spanner in the works of the major political parties and we will see a repeat of the 2001 State Election when PHON were able to gain three upper house MPs.

Pauline Hanson has been in Western Australia this week trying to promote her party despite it being dogged by problem candidates and former members wanting to sue the party leader for ‘ageism.’ Polling shows she could get anywhere between 9-12% of the primary vote. The issue for PHON however isn’t necessary the infighting as even negative media publicity is better than no publicity, it is the mere fact they lack volunteers to assist them in their campaign efforts.

The Australian Greens which are polling less than PHON in WA will probably no doubt do better and the simple reason is that they do appeal to younger West Australians. Given this, however, after looking at PHON’s social media sites they too have the ability to atract younger Australians. Pauline Hanson needs to engage younger people and re-launch their defunct Young Nation Movement. How she can do this, well thats for her and her team to decide on but she does need to engage them somehow. Pauline – if you are reading – I can assit you with this.

Given the lack of volunteers and no enagement of young people, I predict that PHON will only gain three upper house seats this coming state election. One from the Agricultural Region; one from the Mining and Pastoral Region and one from the Southwest Region. If they are lucky they may pick up one other upper house seat, where? Well thats anyones guess. I cant see them winning any lower house seats only because preferences are against them.

I am by no means being negative in my predictions but only realistic. There is still a chance, even with three upper house MP’s, One Nation could hold the balance of power in the Legislative Council. Fingers crossed this will be the case.

Banning Islam is not the answer but………….

There is a lot of talk at the moment about the thought of banning Islam in Australia. Queensland Senator, and Leader of One Nation, Pauline Hanson has introduced this as part of her policy. Senator Hanson has recognised that before banning Islam, constitutional constraints hold this policy back. 

Section 116 of the Australian Constitution states:

116 Commonwealth not to legislate in respect of religion

The Commonwealth shall not make any law for establishing any religion, or for imposing any religious observance, or for prohibiting the free exercise of any religion, and no religious test shall be required as a qualification for any office or public trust under the Commonweath

One Nation has called for a Royal Commission into Islam to see whether or not it is a religion or a political ideology. By determining whether it is a political ideology or a religion, Senator Hanson believes this will solve the constitutional constraint to ban Islam.

The concern I have with such Royal Commission is that any religion that has a vast history such as Islam will always be determined as a religion not a political ideology. All religions have a certain degree of political ideology and that is due to it’s past existance. For example you only have to look at the Roman Empire to see that it had a catholic ideology behind it’s governance. Therefore having a Royal Commision into Islam would be a waste of time, effort and taxpayers money. 

One Nation could adopt a policy whereby that they will push to have a referendum to ammend section 116 of the Australian Constitution. This referendum would also cost taxpayers a lot of money and with a Double Majority rule for constitutional change, could mean that such move could be lost. Not many referendums are successful. On the otherhand One Nation will be giving the people a say on the matter.

The other areas where One Nation could focus their attention is to adopt a discriminatory immigration policy. One Nation has already upset the apple cart by saying that they want to ban Islam – as I pointed out this is hard to do – so by having a discriminatory immigration policy whereby there is a halt of immigration on those from Islamic Arab Nations, will slow down the rise of Islam in Australia and will not hinder One Nation’s political capital.

Many on the left, centre and even the right will say that we can’t have a discriminatory immigration program as it will take us back to the White Australia Policy – the fact is Australia already has a discriminatory immigration policy, we discriminate on the basis of health and occupation therefore this argument is flawed. Pauline Hanson’s One Nation as I see it right now is the only hope for Australia to follow in Trumps lead, they just need to clean up their policies first.
