Australia is doomed! #auspol #pmlive #loveislove

What are our politicians doing?

Why are we paying them $200k plus when we haven’t seen any real outcomes since Tony Abbott stopped the boats and repealed the Carbon Tax?

Malcolm Turnbull was suppose to be a better Prime Minister than Tony Abbott but what has he actually achieved besides his own annihilation?

At the moment Australia faces:

  1. An energy crisis. No talk about real energy reform such as Nuclear but more subsidies to renewables which have proven in South Australia to be a dud.
  2. Out of control debt. The Liberal National Governments is throwing money away like it grows on tree’s. The fact we are spending $300,000 a minute on Welfare should be of concern.
  3. Out of control immigration levels. You can only have to look at Sydney and Melbourne to see that our immigration levels are not sustainable. Sydney itself have embraced the ‘go high’ approach to living with high rise apartments clogging up Sydney streets. Yet Government refuses to outlay any infrastructure such as frontline health services, roads, schools, police etc to deal with the massive growth.
  4. Increased terror risks. Government tends to tip toe around Islam and the potential risks it imposes on the Western World. Now of course not all muslims are terrorists but nearly all terrorists in the modern world comes from a deranged bunch of Muslims. Even ASIO has admitted that we have to tread carefully when it comes to Islam because if you criticise it, you risk more terror attacks.
  5. A technological brain freeze. The Government has piss farted around with NBN which is as useless as a screen door on a submarine. Government should never have nationalised NBN instead they should have given tax incentives for the private sector to deliver state of the art internet.

 

These are just some of the issue which are facing our Australia today. Yet our politicians are more worried about same sex marriage, transgender reassignment, changing Australia Day, having quotas for women to serve in Parliament, giving themselves a pay rise, getting on the United Nations (this will be a story for another day) and the list goes on. Gone are the days when Governments, like the one John Howard led or even Bob Hawke, tackle real political issues – issues that affect all Australians rather than just the minority. It is sad that the media play on these minor issues only to get good ratings because lets be honest, same sex marriage is a highly emotional topic which gets people feisty on both sides of the argument.

Bill Shorten, the alternative Prime Minister looks almost certain to be our Prime Minister after the next election. What he stands for is no where near the likes of Bob Hawke or Paul Keating, this bloke embraces identity politics and populist mumbo jumbo. When he wins the next election, I predict he won’t last very long, because like most modern Governments, they don’t tackle the big issues. Australia is Doomed!

The Three Disciples and the Triangle of Hope

2017 will see the demise the of Liberal Party as we knew it. No longer will it be a centre-right party espousing a broad-church base, instead it will be an extreme centre or mild centre left party with a base that is made up of progressive moderates. Many conservative members of the Liberal Party have resigned. Some have decided to go with another political party and others are waiting to see what progresses so that they can find their new home. As far as I can see, there are three alternatives in our political landscape which could house ex liberal members. Lets call them the three disciples. Together they are The Triangle of Hope.

On the bottom far right side of the Triangle of Hope we see Pauline Hanson’s One Nation. One Nation has proven to be an effective player on the electoral scene. Social policies such as climate change, tough immigration, tough on crime, and tough on welfare attracts conservatives however their economic viewpoints – which historically united the liberals – veers to the left of politics. They do believe in protectionism on industry and they aren’t fond of free trade. This could be a major turn off for conservatives. Many conservatives believe in economic freedom therefore no regulations should interfere with economic progress. On the other hand to give credit where it is due, Pauline Hanson and One Nation have treated many economic issues on merit rather than having a blanket rule approach. For example One Nation does not believe in foreign ownership, however they do support the Adani Coal Mine in Townsville. This shows that One Nation is willing to negotiate for the good of the nation in particularly when it comes to jobs. Organisationally however Pauline Hanson’s One Nation belongs to Pauline Hanson. It is her Party. This will not gel with conservatives. One of the main reasons why many conservatives within the Liberal Party are leaving is because the membership is not allowed a voice. If One Nation wants to pick up these conservative votes then they need to change their organisational structure. Otherwise conservatives will look to others within the Triangle of Hope.

On the bottom far left side of the Triangle of Hope we see the Liberal Democratic Party. The LDP have a libertarian slant to their policies. They stand for low taxes, small government and individual responsibility. This sounds more like a conservative party however whilst they may feel at home with their economic viewpoints they may struggle to comprehend their social policies. The LDP do believe in legalising same sex marriage (but protecting religions from being sued if they refuse to marry same sex couples), legalisation of drugs, prostitution, abortions and euthanasia. At the end of the day they believe that humans should be free to make decisions about their own lives without the nanny state interfering. Whilst conservatives don’t believe in the ‘nanny state’ as such these policies are not something conservatives feel strongly about, many conservatives despise prostitution, abortions and euthanasia. As for the organisational structure of the LDP it is not based on personalities unlike Pauline Hanson’s One Nation. All members have a say and this is a potential win for conservatives.

Is there a better way? Finally on top of the Triangle of Hope we see the Australian Conservatives. A newly formed Conservative Party founded by former Liberal Senator Cory Bernardi. The Party believes in advocating for building a sustainable and prosperous economy and maintaining civil society. What does this mean? Well as the Party has just only been founded there are no exact policies on issues however when you go through Hansard and other media outlets and you read up on Senator Cory Bernardi, you will find that he believes in the free market, limited Government, personal responsibility, and a civil society (traditional Judeo-Christian values). The party also believes in democratic processes therefore according to it’s website, all party members will have a say on party matters. According to Paul Murray Live (3/7/2017) the Australian Conservatives in NSW have already reached 4,000 members, this is impressive hence why it is on top of the Triangle of Hope.

Conservatives in Australia have a choice. They could continue to stick with the Liberal Party and be frustrated with being powerless and support leftist policies such as the folly of renewable energy targets, open borders and gay marriage. Alternatively they could consider the Triangle of Hope. Australian Conservatives, Liberal Democrats and Pauline Hanson’s One Nation. These three disciples have potential to shape our nation. There are options and there is a better way.

 

Having a leg on the Trump Train was everything but in vain.

Having a leg on the Trump Train was everything but in vain.

American politics is something that I never really was interested in. Their system compared to the Westminster system is confusing and this is merely due to my ignorance. As a right wing advocate I have always leaned towards the Republican Party rather than the Democrats. I believe in low taxes, less spending and more protection of borders. In saying that I do believe in government assistance to the most vulnerable in our society. What we have seen in America and around the world, are leaders who have dismissed these beliefs and have only pushed agenda’s according to whoever has donated the most to their election campaign. The 2016 Presidential Election campaign offered a real alternative to the status quo of politics, Hillary Clinton was seen to represent the establishment whilst Donald Trump in the eyes of many political commentators represented the ‘forgotten people’. Never in my time have we seen two presidential candidates that had complete opposition views on issues, mind you I am only young.

Hillary Clinton is a polished politician with many decades of political ‘wisdom’ and ‘astuteness’, her husband is a former President and Hillary Clinton herself was a lawyer. This provided the Clinton Campaign both pro’s and negatives. Pro in that she has had experience in government and as a ‘leader’ but negative in that the electorate saw her as a typical politician.
Donald Trump isn’t a politician, he is a businessman, a multimillionaire and a reality tv star.
On face value Donald Trump appeared to be a ‘Clive Palmer’ of US politics and at times I agreed with this notion. Under the bedrock of this idea the electorate felt that they needed change, and like many countries around the world this change is growing; you can only look at the rise of UKIP, Gert Wilders Party and in Australia, Pauline Hanson’s One Nation.

I had a leg on the Trump train because of three reasons.
Firstly, as mentioned earlier, I believe in three principles;
1. Low Taxes
2. Low Spending (whilst protecting the most vulnerable)
3. Strong Border Protection
Unfortunately Hillary Clinton and the Democrats have never held these beliefs. The Democrats like the Australian Labor Party believe in higher taxes to be able to afford more social programs rather than empowering people to find work and earn a living. As Australia’s former Prime Minister Tony Abbott once said “..the best form of welfare is a job.” This is something the left no matter where you are in the world does not believe in.
In regards to Border Protection, this clearly has been an issue in America, like it is currently in most Western Countries, the only candidate that addressed this issue regardless of how extreme it is which in my opinion isn’t that extreme, was Trump.
Automatically I was compelled towards the trump factor.
Second reason why I had a leg on the Trump train is because around the world the media have been taken over by left-wing liberal socialists who kept down-playing the rise of support for Trump. We saw this during the Brexit campaign. As a result of this bias I felt that supporting trump would be putting the middle finger up to the chardonnay latte sipping socialists.
Thirdly, the Western World needs change, and given that United States of America are the leaders of the Western World it is important that this change starts with them. The fact that Trump now is President it makes it easier for people to vote for an alternative political party or candidate. It sends a message to the electorate, regardless of country, that it is okay to vote for UKIP, it is okay to vote for One Nation, it is okay to vote for Gert Wilde. This is a game changer.

These reasons why I had a leg on the Trump train clearly has resonated across America. I was over in New York during the election. All media outlets, including the ultra right-wing Fox News even thought Trump wasn’t going to win prior to the closing of the Polls. What we have seen is a revolution. The electorate wants action, they want change, they want to be listened to. This is a wake up call to both the media and our political elites that the system they have put in, under the right circumstances, can actually backfire on them. People Power.

The Greens attack Paramedics and Firies!

The Federal Budget was handed down on 3rd May 2016, and without going into too much detail, one news article got my attention. The big problem with the $80k tax cut.
The budget will see income tax bracket increase from $80,000 to $87,000 which will, according to the news article, provide an extra $315 per year to those who earn that amount.

The interesting thing that caught my eye was the Greens MP Adam Bandts comments that those who earn over $80k are wealthy.

“Greens MP Adam Bandt has slammed the Government for offering this relief to wealthy Australians while ignoring those who need it. We don’t need it. Ordinary Australians do and they miss out in this Budget,  he said.”

So Adam, you think Paramedics, Nurses, Police and other frontline public servants are not ordinary Australians? You think those who earn $80k are rich scum and should be taxed out of prosperity? As a frontline public servant I am absolutely offended and disgusted about these comments and his ascertions that because someone earns $80k it means that they don’t deserve a tax break.

About time people start waking up the menace of the Green monster that is infiltrating our political arena. The Greens are scum, and only prey on the weak and vulnerable. Given that over 50% of Australian voters receive some sort of taxpayer handouts the Green thrive on this. They don’t want to see Australians further their prosperity they would rather see people suffer and rely on taxpayers to ensure their political survival. This is clearly evident by Adams out of touch comments he made to News Ltd.

Green Green Go Away!!

The recent Tasmanian and South Australian elections have proved that the electorate is slowly killing off the Australian Greens. Their dominance in the labor party has slowed down their support and even the labor party is being punished for doing creepy deals with this Green entity. Why are the Greens on the nose to many Australians? Well their constant obstructionist approach to government is probably a start, but there abhorrent policies are probably the main catalyst.

The Greens are no doubt a TAX party, we have seen this already when they were sharing the bed with the ALP i.e. Mining Tax and Carbon tax; but this does not end here. The Greens want to increase the Mining Tax and Carbon Tax, they also want to apply a 0.2% levy on banks, and increase taxes for hard-working Australians who do earn a decent income, all this will have a flow effect on the economy and ordinary Australians will have to pay for it. Australians are fed up of taxes, recently we have seen an increase in tobacco tax and alcohol pops tax not to mention a levy on medicare to pay for Labors (failed) policy of NDIS, therefore the electorate is waking up to Greens that they are not for ordinary middle class Australia, they are there for the welfare class, and want everyone to be on the same playing field. Policies that promote the distribution of wealth.

The Greens need to be a high taxing party to fund their exuberant social policies such Denticare, increasing the Newstart Allowance, greening the health sector, and throwing more money into the health of asylum seekers; whilst all this is a noble cause, the cost of this to the Australian worker is huge. Many Australians are fed up of Government over spending and not living within their means, this was clearly evident with the landslide win to the Coalition at the 2013 Federal Election after when the ALP went absolutely bonkers for 6 years with the taxpayers credit card.

Other lunatic policies of the Greens include:
• Increasing funding to the arts. (Do you really want your taxes going on some student art project that depicts a vagina and kids can walk through it?)
• reducing the standard working week to 4 (how would the economy cope with this?)
• making it part of the curriculum to teach about trade unions, enterprise bargaining and assisting people to adapt to a life-style that is not dependent on paid work (So basically instilling socialism into our youths, as well as promoting young Australians that they do not need a job because the state will always look after them).
• Support the abolition of the Australian Building and Construction Commission. (Clearly they support corruption in this industry).
• Reducing the number of juveniles in prison (Therefore they want to introduce feel good policies – we already have a judicial system that is soft on criminals)
• Removal of Tasers from police (The Greens want our police to be punching bags, the use of Tasers actually save lives, rather the police using their glocks they use Tasers instead).
• Stop using sniffer dogs in public places. (The Greens are ‘barking’ mad)

These are just a few of bizarre policies of the Greens. You can actually check them our on their websites, also check out individual state party websites as each state has a different policy.

The Greens still share the power with the Labor Party in the Senate until July. Even though the Greens have had a massive swing against them both in Tasmania, South Australia and Federally they still want to hold the Government to ransom on issues such as Carbon Tax, Mining Tax and illegal boat arrivals. These three core policies were what the Liberal and National Parties were given a mandate on. The Greens shear arrogance leaves a bad taste on many Australians mouths and hopefully they will be punished at the WA Senate election in April.

With all this in mind and after their shared power with the Labor Party, the Greens have shown their true colours, they are not the friendly environmentalists that they purport to be, they are extremist imbeciles who would wreck your standard of living through their outrageous and radical left-wing policies. Australians have finally woken up to them. Goodbye Greens!
