It’s Our Fault, They Aren’t Responsible! Somehow……….

The following is a representation of a discussion with the left as to why terrorists commit their acts of terrorism. The answer is pretty straightforward but for some reason the left can’t seem to see it.

Leftist Denial: why are they attacking us?

Reality: We’ve done nothing, it’s their way of life that’s the problem.

LD: What could the problem be, If only we could work out what we’ve done wrong and see some sort of connection between the attacks.

R: Open borders, lax immigration policies allowing Stone Age ways of life to take root in the West. It’s their way of life that’s the problem.

LD: But once they’re in the West they grow as people and support gay marriage, women’s rights, freedom and more importantly they vote for left wing parties, there’s no reason for them to attack!

R: It’s not where they live, it’s how they live. It’s their way of life that’s the problem.

LD: It must be the poverty the white male patriarchy is forcing them to live in causing them to lash out. It’s perfectly reasonable and understandable they’d behave this way.

R: Many of them are rich, most of the others are certainly not starving and poverty exists in all other demographic groups and those people aren’t committing acts of terrorism. Poverty is not making a certain group commit acts of terrorism. It’s their way of life that’s the problem.

LD: Maybe people are being racist towards them because of their faith.

R: They are not a racial group, and any issues are mostly down to the fact their culture is not compatible with ours. It’s their way of life that’s the problem.

LD: It must be because we’re isolating them from mainstream society and they’re lashing out.

R: We don’t do that, they chose to isolate themselves from others. It’s their way of life that’s the problem.

LD: Maybe we aren’t respecting their ways enough.

R: By attacking us for our freedoms they certainly aren’t showing our ways any respect. It’s their way of life that’s the problem.

LD: Maybe we need to make more heart signs at the sky, carry multiple concerns, talk about inclusion, talk about climate change, start a hashtag campaign, change our profile pics, tell people that the terrorists aren’t evil and how white people are racist.

R: How about you do something that looks for the real causes and offer a solution. I've been telling you all along what the problem is. It’s their way of life that’s the problem.

LD: You've been useless with this, you've been no help in working out how we’re to blame for their acts of terrorism!

R: I've been telling you all along what the problem is. It’s their way of life that’s the problem. And your side is helping them by refusing to listen to what people are telling you and by being in denial about the real issues.

LD: You’re racist

R: We aren’t talking about a race. It’s their way of life that’s the problem along with your refusal to stop your useless virtue signalling and look at what’s really going on.

Becoming A Republic Will Solve All Problems! Somehow........

We’re going to be a republic! The politicians say so, we can’t resist! After all, the politicians say so. Never mind what you really think of them, they said so and that’s all it will take! It will be a great day for Australia and everything will be fine and dandy! Just suspend your disbelief and vote how the government tells you to!

If the proposed republic does not contain a bill of rights then it's not worth anything to the Australian people.

Our rights are already under assault from the Liberal/Labor/Green alliance and could potentially be stripped away completely if we vote for a republic.

In other words if politicians want it then it's something that is for their benefit only. 

The Australian Republican Movement also constantly misrepresents our relationship to the UK and the Crown. For one thing Australia is an independent nation and our relationship to the UK is not a subordinate one. The UK cannot in any way pass legislation binding upon Australia and even in the past when they could, by convention they did not.

As far as the Crown is concerned, Elizabeth the Second is specifically Queen of Australia and it is a completely separate crown to the UK and other Commonwealth realms despite being held by the same person. Also the Queen is not foreign, she is family, we have a closely tied history to the UK as well as countries such as New Zealand and the relationship is an equal one. 

As a bonus the only time we have to pay anything towards the Crown is when the Queen is actually in the country and it’s pretty much the same cost we pay when any other head of state or dignitary visits the country. Even as a republic we’d still have to cover this cost should Elizabeth or her successors visit.

If you want to accept the Queen as foreign though then you could suggest the Australian Republican Movement is xenophobic given how foreigners are pouring onto our shores to live in this country.

In all seriousness though, at this time becoming a republic has nothing to offer us and could cost us dearly. It’s not something we can just adopt and then fix it as we go, it needs to be pretty much the right way to go from the start. If we vote for a model that actually takes away our rights we’ll be hard pressed to get them back.

All the republican movement is doing at the moment is distracting us from the very real issues we face and we possibly face losing our rights with promises of independence and sovereignty that we actually already have. These rights are currently being undermined by the Liberal/Labor/Green alliance so you can imagine the model for a republic they would present.

Instead of ‘throwing off’ the Monarchy we’d be better off throwing out the politicians and special interest groups that are serving their own agendas’ and egos to the detriment of the people of Australia and the very real sovereignty and independence this country already has.

Other People’s Money, Always

A representation of conversations between the socialist left and conservative right.
Socialist Left: We should be sending more taxpayers money overseas. We could fix all the problems in the world and people would thank us socialists!

Conservative Right: That’s not what it’s there for.

SL: What? Of course it is, it’s taxpayers money! And we should force Superannuation funds to build more renewable energy sources! Think of all the wind turbines it could fund!!

CR: That’s not what it’s there for.

SL: There you go again with that negativity! What’s your problem with my ideas? Jealous you didn’t think of it?

CR: Taxpayers money is taken from taxpayers for the benefit of this country and Superannuation is for funding peoples retirements and it needs to invest where there will be a return on that investment.

SL: There will be a return, once we cut down a lot of trees and put up more turbines the environment will somehow benefit! People have got to stop being so selfish, it’s not their money anyway.

CR: Yes it is, taxpayers have a right to have a say in how the money that was taken from them is spent and Superannuation money is private investment money held in trust. It belongs to the account holder, not the fund managers or the government and it certainly isn't there for your benefit.

SL: You’re just annoyed that a university student knows more than you. I’m sure people wouldn't mind their money being used in the way I want it to be used.

CR: Do you have a job? Have you ever held a job?? Have you ever placed any hard earned money in an investment looking for a return?

SL: Well no but I don’t see what that has to do with anything, keep your micro aggressions to yourself!

CR: Got any money in the bank?

SL: Yeah, I got some for my birthday, I got it in an interest bearing account, I’m going to come out with more money than I put in and still be below the tax threshold!

CR: Well let’s use your money, give some to an overseas aid program and invest the rest in a renewable energy project.

SL: But that’s my money, we should be using taxpayers money for that and Superannuation funds.

CR: In other words, other people’s money. Put your money where your mouth is or stop demanding the rest of us fund your fantasies.

SL: You racist!

CR: Gosh, who didn't see that coming.

Nation Bankrupting Network

The National Broadband Network (NBN) promised to transform how Australians used the Internet. We heard tales of how it was super-fast and could handle downloads of over a terabyte in scant seconds.

This was one of those deals where the taxpayer would have to foot the bill for vitally needed infrastructure. Due to certain logistical issues in Australia apparently there was no way private enterprise could afford to build the NBN.

But never mind that, we will all benefit! And businesses in regional Australia could finally compete more effectively with the rest of the world.

It would be truly a wonder of the age and all for the low price to the taxpayer of $15 billion. The prime minister at that time jotted down a few sketches, made up a few numbers and a new era was born.

Then reality struck. While the idea of replacing the copper network was actually a good plan given that the copper network is falling apart and businesses were being affected by a lack of reliable service the NBN wasn’t actually going to be super-duper fast. It was only going to be as fast as the rest of the Internet. If a webpage is only giving out data at 20 megabytes per second that’s how fast it would come up at your end.  It wasn't really going to speed things up, the actual benefit of the NBN was that it wasn't going to slow things down and we’d be getting Internet at its real speed.

The approach to building the NBN used by Labor was a fantasy land approach with heavy leanings towards socialism. This didn’t take into account the existing landscape in the communications industry. The NBN plan would rely heavily on the cooperation of the big two players in the communication market and they weren’t going to just hand over their infrastructure to the ‘greater good’ as presented by Labor or just plough their profits into the NBN.

One example is when Telstra decided to use the $11 billion they received for their cable conduits on their own business. The socialist approach used by Labor expected Telstra to invest the money in the NBN, in other words just give it back and in essence hand over their conduits for nothing.

On top of that were negligent business practices within NBN and constant political interference.

When Labor unveiled their shiny new NBN they never actually promised to build it properly.

Costs have massively blown out. Cable conduits and telephone exchanges are already in place and that alone should have helped save large sums of money but the costs to the taxpayer blew out anyway.

Then there was a change of government who came up with a plan to create a hybrid system which made use of the rapidly deteriorating copper network in conjunction with the NBN template. Instead of having optical fibre go straight to the customers premises it was copper wire instead. This would somehow save money and somehow not affect speeds too much.

The hybrid plan also included using the cables on the Optus pay TV network hanging up on telegraph poles and more money was thrown at the NBN project. Costs blew out even further when it was found the coaxial cables that were in use were near the end of their useful life.

The original NBN plan should in theory be quite workable and actually be able to get ahead with a business minded conservative government at the helm yet it was pointlessly changed and in the process costs kept blowing out. Given the deterioration of the copper network the plans should have been kept to replace it completely, not retain it where it would still cause issues and costs.

As a result of this what we now have is a mish mash of a network. Some areas have the NBN come to their premises by optical fibre. These people usually enjoy high speeds and reliable service. In areas with the hybrid setup there have been serious service problems and in areas without the NBN they simply have slow Internet as before and aren’t as able to make use of streaming services as effectively as other areas.

Like the electricity network Australia’s Internet is being dragged down to third world standards but don’t despair, many of the friends of both the Liberal and Labor parties have made a lot of money acting in executive roles in NBN Co. Not only that there will be jobs for years to come as more taxpayers money is handed out to companies to fix the many problems that have been built into the mighty National Broadband Network.

Renewable Energy Is Just Renewed Scamming

Here is what the renewable energy scam is doing to the economy and what it is doing for the environment.

What it is doing to the economy is destroying it. What it is doing for the environment is nothing.

Here’s what’s happening in the economy. Because electricity prices keep going up people have less money to spend on other goods and services. Because electricity prices have gone up businesses have had to increase their prices and cut their costs where possible resulting in people losing their jobs.

Here’s what’s happening in the environment. Because so much attention has been on the green scams the real problems we face such as overpopulation, deforestation, rubbish in our oceans and ongoing crises such as the Fukushima nuclear disaster are not getting the attention they need.

It doesn’t matter what magical accounting they use or make believe stories they push to make it seem acceptable, the fact is the economy is getting worse. Electricity disconnections for non-payment are on the rise and our power grid is being reduced to third world standards.

It doesn’t matter how scary the green brigade make their stories, the whole renewables deal is still a scam. CO2 is not a pollutant, human output is only a small amount of the annual CO2 output, the climate has always changed and taxes cannot change the climate or the environment.

What’s been happening in the state of South Australia is a sign of things to come for the rest of the country as politicians pursue outrageous renewable energy targets. Prices there are the highest in Australia and their economy is collapsing. The SA electricity network couldn’t deal with an increase of wind and had to shut down and then its cheap infrastructure came apart. Businesses are now looking to conduct their business in other states or offshore where there is reliable and cheaper power.

As reliable power stations are closed we’re going to be left in the dark and not just because of renewable electricity’s unreliability, we also won’t be able to afford to power our homes anymore.

People are told they will have to make more cuts to their spending and change their lifestyle but why should they have to? People should get the benefit of their own money and spend it on what they want to spend it on. Many people have already cut their budgets as much as is possible but the trouble is politicians and green groups are very keen to spend other people’s money and keep devising ways to scam more money from people.

The scammers will try and justify the cost while glossing over the problems they cause with statements like it’s only a couple of dollars a week more or it’s just a 10% increase and it shouldn’t  be an issue and then follow that by saying it’s all for the environment.

Here’s some very basic economics that the scammers deliberately ignore, if someone gets $500 a week and that full amount is earmarked to cover $500 worth of costs then you won’t get a single cent out of them let alone a couple more dollars.

And it’s not for the environment, for one thing the manufacture of wind turbines create more pollution than using them supposedly prevents.

When technologies and products are superseded and made obsolete the new technologies and products are ones that are much more efficient and so much better it makes the preceding technology obsolete. One example is mobile (cell) phones. Modern mobiles are cheap, sleek, have good transmission range, clear reception and can do anything like make videos, stream your favourite programs etc. while the originals only had a few functions and limited range and transmission quality.

Look at televisions. The originals were bulky, had small screens and could only receive transmissions in black and white. Now you can get large and sleek TV’s with multiple functions and high definition picture quality.

Both items and many others are more efficient than their predecessors as well as being cheaper.

The reverse is happening with energy generation as the reliable and steady sources of generation are replaced with inefficient wind turbines and solar which cannot maintain a reliable level of supply and requires massive subsidies and high prices to stay in business.

And that raises another lie of the scammers, they claim renewables are a competitive form of energy. If something requires massive subsidies it is not competitive.

The powers that be don’t care though, they ultimately benefit and will do all they can to make sure they are immune from the destruction of our electricity grid.

The whole deal with renewable energy is a scam. Always has been, always will be.

We Owe Nothing

The current woes in many parts of the world are blamed on colonialism and supposedly only aid money will ‘right that wrong’. 

Say what you will about the effects of colonialism, it ended decades ago and is not the reason why many countries are now going nowhere. 

On the issue of aid, billions have been pumped into these third world nations from the West and they are getting worse. 

Foreign aid is not helping, it’s time to stop pussy footing around the issue and deal with the real problems. 

On a side note, after most of the colonies gained independence many of the people in those countries fled to the countries of their former colonial masters. Guess the West isn’t such an evil place after all.

Expensive Problems, Expensive Solutions And More Proof They Can’t Be Trusted.

In the wake of the latest expenses scandal prime minister Malcolm Turnbull has proposed an ‘independent tribunal’ be created to set politicians expenses.

Another costly layer of bureaucracy is needed? Really?? And who will be part of this tribunal? Very likely people in big business the current government wants to gain favour with, ex MP’s looking for an easy gig and a few assorted relatives. No doubt the tribunal will also be highly paid for their ‘challenging and complex’ work.

And when this well paid tribunal rules it’s OK for politicians to charge taxpayers for shopping trips and parties and anything else they feel like the politicians will go “we're not doing anything wrong, the tribunal said it’s OK. It’s nothing to do with us, they’re independent!

What this is ultimately telling us is we just can’t trust most of our politicians to do the right thing. It’s a no brainer that expenses are to cover reasonable costs while conducting business. A commercial flight back to a politician’s electorate and transport to an important local sporting event that doubles as meet and greet with the electorate is in that range. Charter flights back home when you’ve missed the last flight through bad timekeeping and trips to friends parties is not reasonable and it doesn’t take an overpaid ‘independent tribunal’ to tell us that.

No one would really begrudge politicians reasonable expenses in the course of their work, trouble is our parliament is admitting it can no longer be trusted. If we can’t trust them to reasonably set their own expenses how can we trust them to run the country?

Based on their current form we cannot. They are blatantly forwarding their own interests ahead of the nations and they are doing it right under our noses and at our expense. As the saying goes, it’s time to drain the swamp and we need to drain it soon before it is too late. 

With the ever increasing debt and our governments serving interests other than Australia’s there is no way we can continue to just sit back and let it happen.

Trumping The Polls

The US presidential election has shown us something, it’s ultimately the people who can decide an election, not the political establishment, social activists and certainly not the media.

All kinds of tricks are used in elections such as calling a certain candidate’s supporter’s names or saying the polls have said who the winner will be while suggesting the polls are never wrong.

But wrong they are and they were wrong big time. Before the US election Hillary was said to be the winner by a massive margin and as we know that did not happen.

Many polls, such as this one by Huffington Post, declared Hillary the winner before the actual election

Now there’s mock soul searching by the media and others on why it did not go how they had wanted it to. They’re blaming non-existent racism, misogyny, they’ll probably even blame Bush the same way Obama constantly did during his presidency.

What it really comes down to is more and more people are waking up to how they are being manipulated and used to keep an elite group of people firmly entrenched in their in lording over us while ripping us off in the process.

Polls may be useful in gauging public views on various issues but as an election tool they are a load of nonsense designed to sway your vote and create talking points for election news shows.

So next time around completely ignore the political establishment, social activists along with the media and their fantasy world polls. It’s your vote, not theirs. Vote wisely and vote like you mean it.

Trump Trumps, The Left Whine (As Usual!)

The left cry racist at those who disagree with them. Usually race has nothing to do with it but the cries of racist come all the same.

Many white people in America voted for Obama, twice, but the general rhetoric from the left has been to call white people racist, especially when they disagree with any of Obama’s policies. There is no legitimate way to disagree, if you don’t accept things like the ever increasing debt, the overly expensive Obamacare and the increasingly divided America you’re a racist. Somehow……

And as an added bonus if you question things like the mythical gender pay gap or do not support taxpayer funded abortion up to nine months and beyond or you’re not inclined to vote for Hillary you’re automatically a misogynist.

Never-mind if you supported Bernie Sanders and were less than impressed with the Super Delegate deal, question Hillary and you’re out of order and if anything, how dare you even question, just vote for who you’re told to vote for!

Right from the get go the left have been calling Trump racist and a misogynist. Trump associates with and employs females and people of different ethnic backgrounds. The cries of racist are just another act of bullying and crying wolf by the left. They’ve done that way too often so even if somebody they labelled actually was racist etc. there’s no way anyone could believe them, they have absolutely no credibility remaining whatsoever.

Not that the left has missed a beat, the name calling continues and they as usual continue to show us their true colours and contempt for democracy.

It’s not about race, never was and never will be but to address what the issues really are would force the left to address the very real shortcomings of the ideology they live by.

Big Debt? No Big Deal To The Democrats

Some on the Democrat side of the impending US election like to squawk that Obama has performed miracles with the US economy. The deficit is down apparently and job numbers are up, thanks to Obamacare many people now have health coverage. Apparently Hillary Clinton is set to continue with Obama’s legacy of performing miracles.

For many people though the cost of living is up. That’s because the Obama miracles caused their full time job to be converted into a part time job to avoid Obamacare levies with the added bonus in some cases of the employee still expected to do the same amount of work. With less money coming they are also badly placed to face cost of living increases that have hit people to fund Obamacare.

In other cases some full time jobs have become two part time jobs which has had a corresponding impact on job numbers. Through the magic of turning one full time job into two part time jobs unemployment figures are reduced. Yay Obamacare. You’ll have to work harder for less but you’ll have health coverage for when you crack under the strain. (You had it before but with your own doctor but never-mind that, you can say the economy is better!)

One thing that has increased during Obama’s eight years in office and increased massively is the national debt. When he took office in 2009 the debt was already way too high at $11,909,829,003,511.75. By the time he leaves the debt will be nearly doubled at around $19,391,704,027,667.12.

In other words the ‘better economy’ under Obama is a smoke and mirrors job funded by debt, debt and more debt.

So it’s not really a matter of Obama doing wonders with the US economy, it’s more a matter that it’s a wonder the US economy is still even functioning.

For the left though the debt he's left for taxpayers is an achievement beyond belief, Obama has spent more of other peoples money than anyone else in history.

And on a related subject, while the debt is measured against the GDP the entire GDP is not actually available for servicing the debt. The current GDP is approximately $18 trillion and the US government gets approximately $3.25 trillion dollars of that. The debt is serviced from the sum received by the US government which has other commitments as well from pensions to infrastructure.

They Cry Racist! (And Have No Real Argument To Present)

When it comes to discussing illegal immigration and halting it we hear, as usual, the lame cries of racist from those inclined to support it.

Sometimes they will also suggest that people against illegal immigration are attempting to restore the white Australia policy.

And with that you could easily suggest the person saying that may be racist themselves. After all what is it they are suggesting? That only white people know how to immigrate legally and other races only know how to immigrate illegally? If we curtail illegal immigration we are stopping the only means non-white people have of immigrating to Australia?

That appears to be what they are thinking. Or it’s just another attempt to stifle debate by suggesting racism where there isn’t any?

Many people of different racial backgrounds have legally immigrated to Australia, many even did so during the white Australia policy so preventing illegal immigration will in no way restore the white Australia policy. Suggesting it will is nonsensical beyond belief.

Some also like to suggest that if you’re against illegal immigration that you’re actually against immigration in general. Even immigration minister Scott Morrison did so when he said we must embrace immigration and trade after recent comments from the public against illegal immigration. The response of many is they are not against immigration, they are against illegal immigration.

The cries of racist from those who advocate illegal immigration can be readily ignored since the issue isn’t race and they know it. Crying racist is just something some people say when they hear a viewpoint that does not agree with their own.

The cries of racism need to stop and a full and open debate on the issue of immigration is needed.

The West Is Best

The left squawk that Western nations are horrible, racist, intolerant places yet the West is the place of choice for the country shoppers of the third world. Why? For one thing we aren't these horrible people the left try and claim we are. The way too generous welfare system the left use to buy votes from said country shoppers is also a great lure.

The West is tolerant and too tolerant for its own good. People come here, claim they are offended by our ways and expect us to change out of respect to them. Really? Why are we supposed to respect people who have no respect for us?

The reality is our ways are fine how they are from the Christian based traditions that have evolved to be something everyone can enjoy, to the equal rights for women. All this ‘respecting others ways’ approach will do is take away from us the things that make Western nations the great places to be and turn them into the very countries many are supposedly trying to flee from.

For too long the left have silenced opposition with their cries of racist and their legislation that’s supposed to stop people ‘offending’ others. The cry of racism needs to be ignored, the issue is not race and they know it. Meanwhile we will do all we can to remove their anti-free speech legislation, they can’t silence the truth no matter how hard they try.

They say diversity is strength, many of us would say shared values are strength and before the divisive version of multiculturalism was inflicted on the West our shared values along with our free way of life are what helped make our countries the places people would like to be.

The first response for many of the left to this would be, yep you guessed it, to squawk ‘racist’. The shared values we held were never a matter of race though. Many Western nations were multiracial, happy, free and equal. Those that had issues were in the process of getting them sorted out before multiculturalism came along to divide us.

The West is still the best though, the anti-West of the left certainly aren’t in a rush to leave for some socialist utopia, probably because none actually exist. And now the voices of patriots are being heard despite the best efforts of the left to stop them. We will get our countries back and keep them great.

Weathering The Current Climate

There’s a large storm brewing in South Australia that will also affect most of the country. I’m wondering how many blackouts South Australia will have to deal with as a large amount of their electricity is generated by so called renewable sources. 

Wind turbines which aren’t the most efficient form of energy generation at the best of times aren’t able to operate in high winds (although fees are still paid to the operators!) and of course solar power is useless when there is no sun.

It’ll be interesting to see how many climate alarmists go on about the storm (a weather event) being the result of climate change (which is they claim is completely separate from the weather) and claim carbon taxes would have somehow stopped it.

If the climate alarmists line is to be believed , the Earth’s climate was static and tranquil until industry started and then everything went crazy.

Of course we know it’s the climate alarmists anti CO2 line that is crazy along with their expectation we’ll believe all the climate fairy tales they make up.

To Be Cultured

There is not as much bigotry out there as the left would have you believe and their constant cries of racist are no longer working as well for them. They want causes to champion though, preferably ones that are low effort but they can get some little feel-good moment from it.

What do you do when there aren’t any low effort causes to champion? You manufacture them. One such cause is what they call cultural appropriation and a claim that people (usually white people.) are stealing culturally from other groups who are somehow automatically oppressed victims. For example a white person with dreadlocks is considered guilty of cultural appropriation.

Never mind that in the West we live in multicultural societies and are supposed to be celebrating diversity and encouraging togetherness, people (usually white people) apparently should not be adopting a single thing from other cultures. By all means go to the restaurants and enjoy the food but don’t you dare like anything else!

Obviously offensive stereotypes and objectionable cultural practices (such as those that oppress women and restrict freedom) should be stopped but in general the leftist thought police need to be stopped in their tracks. The leftist approach is an attempt at segregating people and keeping them divided. Our countries will never be united with the left’s nonsensical ‘look but don’t touch’ approach. If all cultures and people are supposedly equal then what’s the problem with equals sharing?

But this is the leftist way for you. They try and stop people (usually white people) from looking into other cultures and ways of life and then complain when white people don’t understand the other cultures.

If people are divided the left can more freely spout their nonsense and do all they can to keep certain groups seeing themselves as victims and in need of the left’s ‘guidance’ and ‘protection’. They can also keep you from criticising the cultures that are against freedom and the left really champion.

So just ignore those who cry cultural appropriation. Take the best of what the world has to offer, wear it respectfully and enjoy.

On Form With The Refugee Intake Increase

One way to help create change is to let your local member know how you feel about certain issues, after all they can’t know if you don’t tell them. Don’t expect them to scour social media in a desperate attempt to get in touch with the people, it’s the people who have to spell out exactly what they expect from their local member.
Dear >>Insert local members name<<

I would like to address the budget and the cuts that are needed to address the shortfalls.

First and foremost, we cannot ever back any cuts to aged pensions and services that Australians rely on. Aged pensions and the services people rely on are essentials and necessary expenses that must be covered. Given the amount of taxes we are paying at all levels of government we have every right to expect a real return on our money.

As with any budget whether it’s a household, corporate or national the first place cuts are made are on luxuries and other unnecessary expenses. At a household level it would be items such as movies or dinner out, for a corporation it could be remodelling a building. On a federal level one such luxury on our budget is the resettlement of refugees which politicians support for their own reasons, usually as a vote getting exercise.

I have recently read that Australia plans to increase its intake by 5,000, no small burden on the budget even at the best of times, an absolute disgrace in the current economic climate and a criminal waste of taxpayers’ money that could be much better spent on aged pension, hospitals, education etc.

The constant resettlement of refugees as well as illegal immigrants is a never ending expense. Then there’s the matter of crime and terrorism. Europe’s open borders have brought them an increase in crime such as rape and several terrorist attacks. Here in Australia, Melbourne has gone from being the world’s most liveable city to a third world hellhole where people are afraid to sleep at night and have had to put barbed wire around their homes to protect themselves from the wonders of ‘diversity’ that politicians have inflicted upon us.

We have done more than we should ever have to so the refugee intake should now be reduced to zero and only immigrants who will be a benefit to the country and not a burden should be allowed in. The best way to deal with the refugee problem is to fix the problems in the countries people are fleeing from. Admitting the way of life in those countries is the problem and not where they live is the place to start, what’s happening in Europe and Melbourne is proof of that. Lowering our standards of living to match the standard of living in the refugees own countries is not helping anyone

Our aged pensioners do not deserve to have their pensions cut to fund bringing in refugees, our aged pensioners have made their contribution to the country and have earned their retirements. Australians who are currently working and contributing should not have the services they rely on cut either.

I recommend you watch a video on Youtube from the United States called ‘Immigration, World Poverty and Gumballs’ which outlines the folly of the current polices. There are also videos called ‘Immigration by the Numbers -- Off the Charts’ and ‘Immigration Gumballs Part 2’ which also show the consequences of current immigration policies.

Yours sincerely,

>>Insert name<<
