1 VOTERS OPINION on AUSTRALIAN POLITICS
ARE YOUR PRIORITIES FOR THE NEXT
THE SAME / SIMILAR TO MINE?
The lens through which I view this issue:
To be absolutely transparent I’ll declare my personal priorities for government this will show you the lens through which I’m commenting on parties policies:
Honesty-don’t promise anything unless it’s fully costed and you can deliver it and don’t boost your own popularity by trashing the opposition. Your achievements should speak for themselves.
If you promise something you must deliver it.
Focus on reviving Australia’s ‘minor’ manufacturing industries – whitegoods, fabric, clothing, electrical and such industries that don’t rely so heavily on highly skilled workers to get the long-term unemployed back to work. Preferably, restore import tariffs.
Government bodies and projects - buy Australian made and use Australian labour. This includes call centres.
Close loopholes that allow companies and high-income earners to avoid paying their fair share of tax. This does not mean tax them out of Australia- FAIR SHARE of tax
Stop/minimize all immigration until services and infrastructure catch up with the current Australian population and a realistic recycling industry is established. Water, power and publidc transport must be secure and Australian owned The Live-ability of the major cities must be restored and congestion, safety, roads and public transport
Future planning for any population growth must consider the environment, sustainability, water supply, sustainable energy and the above BEFORE things become critical.
No more building on our foodbowl
Any migration must consider national security and not subject the current population to immigrants from countries that do not respect our right to our own identity and sovereign law. Migrants must obey our laws and embrace our lifestyle or be deported, no questions and no recourse to using our law and Australian funding to avoid deportation.
Assist the restart of the steel manufacturing and mineral processing industries instead of exporting over-seas. We are not maximising Australia's advantages.
Listen to what the population wants- referendums on important issues especially on the current style of Multiculturalism that discourages nationalism and is dividing Australia and destroying our identity.
Act in the interest of Australians and Australian National Interest as a priority before funding overseas aid: Farmers, natural disasters, homelessness, infrastructure, essential services, the ice epidemic, hospital waiting lists, sustainability, the environment -in Australia must be the governments first priority. Direct services and funding to Australians before international aid – charity begins at home.
Operation Okra and the War in Afghanistan- have made Australia and Australians terrorist targets and are were unwinnable. They created a humanitarian disaster, displacing people and creating a guilt complex for Australia. Stay out of further unwinnable wars.
Preferably leave the U.N. -They are interfering in how Australia is governed, our foreign policy and budgeting. See the Lima Agreement
Stop foreign acquisition of Australian land and utilities.
Return power, water and transport to Australian government hands.
Make water supply security for human consumption and food production a priority over water hungry crops such as cotton, or mining. Fund new dams, pipelines, purification plants. Return water assets to Australian hands and initiate a Royal Commission into the Murray Darling Basin's surface and artesian water supply
Be alert to Chinese control and interference in Australian policy and industry. Tighten international ownership rules for property in Australia- buy back scheme.
Establish a national government body to oversee water supply and stop its unfair abuse. Prosecute the abusers.National ICAC
Get rid of Adani and other International companies that are exploiting our resources. No government financial/ in kind support
Acknowledge climate change and address Australia's contribution, which includes exported coal, gas and oil.
Stop all fracking.
Stop live export of all live animals for human consumption.
Stop/ minimize the sale of gas and oil overseas. Process and use it here. Remove price parity on fuel.
Develop schemes that offer those citizens on welfare ( excluding NDIS, pensions) that can work but choose not to, to perform unpaid public service tasks such as school crossings, yard duty at schools, bus duty, litter collection. Provide liveable social support to those that require it i.e. Universal Basic Income, regardless of their participation in 'work for the dole' type initiatives.
As a matter of urgency develop sustainable industries to address Australia's on-shore re-cycling of recyclables.
Australia and the Australian population have the right to maintain and control Australian sovereign borders without interference from the United Nations.
I believe that when political parties state official policy and they are subsequently elected, they have an obligation to enact that policy.
PRIVATISATION - PLACE PUBLIC UTILITIES AND SERVICING THEM, BACK IN GOVERNMENT HANDS.
IMO this was all just 'jobs for the boys', private enterprise profiteering from publicly owned utilities whilst the public largely cops the costs of maintenance and upgrades. Call centres should be in Australia and profits in Government hands for the greater good. Essential services in international hands is also a security issue!
TRADE INPORTS- Australia should only import from countries that have and enforce comparable O.H.S. laws to our own; fair working wage considering that countries cost of living, penalty overtime, sickness and holiday entitlements, long service leave for workers; child labour laws,5 day 8 hour working week; similar government reporting and payment requirements as per ours e.g. payroll tax; enforceable quality control and assurances
FIAIR DEAL - COMPANIES - TAX
i understand that tax breaks motivate companies, however there should be a threshold where tax breaks turn into simple greed. Under the LNP in 2018, one third of companies paid no tax. There is a happy medium and '0' isn't it. Pay your fair share.
Remove Australian support for THE LIMA AGREEMENT
THE LIMA DECLARATION - DESTROYING AUSTRALIAN MANUFACTURING AND SENDING JOBS OVERSEAS-
WHAT IS THE LIMA DECLARATION? AND WHY HAS AUSTRALIA HAS LOST 98% OF IT’S MANUFACTURING?
CHINA IS NOT A DEVELOPING NATION!
Although signed in 1975 by Labor Senator Don Willesee, the Lima Declaration has had far reaching effects, and can clearly be seen as the blueprint for the disastrous policies embracing the bizarre philosophy known as “Globalisation”.
The Second General Conference of the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO) met in Lima, Peru, during the period 12-26 March, 1975. The resulting declaration had disastrous ramifications for Australian industry. The basic reasoning behind the Declaration was that the drastic plight of the Third World was the result of the rapacious policies of the advanced industrial nations. Australia listed as one of these. The only way to rectify the situation was to transfer industrial resources from advanced countries like Australia to the Third World, then to provide markets for Third World exports by buying products once produced locally.
Both major parties are equally to blame for betraying the nation. The Fraser Government took over where Whitlam left off, Hawke and Keating (level playing field - trade) increased the tempo.
IN 1986, WE ARE TOLD, AUSTRALIA BECAME A SIGNATORY TO THE LIMA DECLARATION. EVER SINCE THEN ALL GOVERNMENTS HAVE BEEN IMPLEMENTING IT.
But by whose Authority?
Not one Australian ever voted in a referendum to approve this fundamental change to our Constitutional arrangements. Yet, the only way the Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act 1901 can be amended is through a Referendum of We, the People of the Commonwealth.

Give the LNP the boot
