When you read the beliefs of Australia’s central conservative movement, the Liberal Party of Australia, one has to wonder if they’re reading the very website of the Governments they have been elected to govern.
In the inalienable rights and freedoms of all peoples; and we work towards a lean government that minimises interference in our daily lives; and maximises individual and private sector initiative
In government that nurtures and encourages its citizens through incentive, rather than putting limits on people through the punishing disincentives of burdensome taxes and the stifling structures of Labor’s corporate state and bureaucratic red tape.
In those most basic freedoms of parliamentary democracy – the freedom of thought, worship, speech and association.
In a just and humane society in which the importance of the family and the role of law and justice is maintained.
In equal opportunity for all Australians; and the encouragement and facilitation of wealth so that all may enjoy the highest possible standards of living, health, education and social justice.
That, wherever possible, government should not compete with an efficient private sector; and that businesses and individuals – not government – are the true creators of wealth and employment.
In preserving Australia’s natural beauty and the environment for future generations.
That our nation has a constructive role to play in maintaining world peace and democracy through alliance with other free nations.
In short, we simply believe in individual freedom and free enterprise; and if you share this belief, then ours is the Party for you.
Currently the Liberal Party is elected to govern the Australian Federal Government along with five States being Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania and Western Australia, along with the Northern Territory Government. Only South Australia and the Australian Capital Territory has the Liberal Party not been elected. The South Australian Parliament is currently a minority Parliament where a third party has decided who shall vote govern in that State All of these Liberal Party Governments are in their first term except for Western Australia where the Liberal Party are now in their second term in Office.
A lot has happened in the past two years and very quickly. Rampant corruption, removal of civil liberties, extreme laws to control the people, removing workers rights and protections, financially punishing the poor, telling manufacturing they aren’t wanted in Australia, abolishing the key roles of science in Government, propping up the role of the Christian Church, abandoning public health and education and so much more. Certainly this has to be a mistake for this is opposite to the Liberal Party belief system quoted above.
The Queensland Liberal National Government created Anti Association Laws where the State’s Attorney General, a politician, can make any organisation a criminal organistion. No Court trial or evidence required. Any association and you face 20 years prison as a dangerous prisoner in solitude. All you have to do is know someone even if they are a work mate. You could be put in prison for just knowing the person who is a member of such an organisation or was once a member in the past. Police can also strip search you in public without evidence or a reason required under other laws and, another law that just being more than three people together is enough to see you being viewed as a gang.
The Victorian Liberal Government is attempting the same now. A new Victorian Law can see a protester put in prison for up to two years. The Tasmanian Liberal Government is also now looking at doing this too.
In Queensland, the union movement is no longer allowed to speak out on any issue on behalf their members without a State wide referendum of their members, held by the Queensland Electoral Commission on every single issue. All to illegalise dissent.
The Western Australian Government is also considering strict laws that could see any group be listed as criminal without any trial.
Now, federally speaking, we saw the election of the Liberal National Coalition to the Australian Government. Their first actions included telling GM-Holden to get out of Australia, political witch hunts using the Police and Courts against their rivals began and several Minsterial Portfolios were abolished including; The Aged, Youth and Science. Yes, there is no Government Portfolio for Science any more. It is dead. And as science was removed from the fore, they have upped the importance the Christian Church.
In their first budget, funding for public education and health is being wound back but funding for Christian run schools and health have been given a healthy increase. The more elite the school, the more the conservatives return financial favour. Right at the time the Royal Commission into Child Abuse(created by the previous Gillard Labor Government) has been finding extreme abuse of children committed by the Christian organisations both in the past and still happening, the Abbott Government has decided to financially reward them and seek to have more children in the hands of child abusers at taxpayers expense.
With the Abbott Government’s first budget, they have moved to remove financial incentives from the average person, pensioners stand to lose over $1,000 per annum, people under 30 years old will be treated harshly if unemployed, new taxes and tax increases but not for the wealthy. No unemployment benefit if you are 25 and then up to 30, unemployed will receive six months of welfare assistance for every 12 months while expected to rent house, pay bills, eat, find a job and more. Again, the very wealthy are helped with the move to open up platforms for them to save on further taxation.
On top of all this, the Abbott Government where every single Government Minister is Catholic and must be a Catholic or they have no Ministerial role, lead by Tony Abbott who declared at least once that only Christians make good Australians, who is denying Muslims at prison refugees camps access to essential medicine and medical aids including operations to remove bullets from their bodies after fleeing persecution, a burns victim denied medicine for related injuries, who refuses to distance himself from Priests found to be abusing children and even gave one a character reference, who laughed and mocked an aged pensioner, who smirked when an aged pensioner said she has to work in the sexy industry to survive, to attacks dissent against his Government as being unAustralian…
Where does the Liberal Party philosophy as stated above reflect their Governments?
Now with the constant remove of rights and civil liberties including the Government stealing your assets if your dissent, Australians are now at the mercy of despots and there is only way to remove them. That is through the act of mass civil disobedience, violent revolution and the murder of those in power. I endorse it.
