I would never have guessed you weren't right leaningMy secret shame...
In all seriousness though. Does Big Footy have any control in the content of these cookies? From a non right leaning football/Big Footy fan, it’s not a great look.
But I also believe the Labor left traditionally imposes too much on the people.
She sees through “Albo” quite easily. Just another faceless man with no policy, only “I’m not the other guy”.
ScragCity your question to me is answered by your summation of those policies.
Fee free tafe, making childcare cheaper, better wages etc, as well as giving off real “coca cola in the water taps” vibes, has to be at an impost to the taxpayer.
Sure, taxes are too high now and I believe the Morrison government is a failure on this front, with the party having strayed from its core values.
I’d vote independent in my electorate considering this, but there are no real great candidates either.
Labor got us through the GFC the only Western country that didn’t feel the impact. They won’t talk about that though because it was under Rudd.Shadow Treasurer Jim Chalmers says the two highest-taxing governments of the past 30 years have been Coalition governments, including the current one. Is that correct? RMIT ABC Fact Check investigates.www.abc.net.au
"Although there have been just two periods each of Labor and Coalition governments in the last 30 years, the Commonwealth tax take was on average higher under the Coalition during that time."
I think it's a bit of a myth that Labor are these "big spenders." Both major parties probably spend similar amounts, just on different things. For example, I think the LNP typically spends more on military. If Labor says they are going to build infrastructure or spend more on social services, that doesn't mean that they will need to increase taxes; they can just spend less on what the LNP were spending on.
Regardless of your political persuasion, it's a bit silly to think that Government spending is inherently bad. Government spending is necessary for a healthy economy.
What are the core values of the liberal party? Corruption? Deceit? Incompetence? I feel like they have achieved those standards.
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.
All very well in theory, but take the line “when the Government stops competing with the efficient private sector“. Case in point the aged care sector. I work for a not for profit that has six aged care facilities, we have always has a Div 1 nurse on for every shift, we have a recreation program that we partially fund ourselves. We have our own kitchen that prepares the meals for our residents. We spend every bit of government funding and still supplement some of our expenses. There is no way you can make a profit from aged care unless you are doing a shoddy job, but for profit organisations are.I have reiterated a couple of times that I feel the current administration has failed to uphold the necessary standards.
And I certainly don’t disagree with anything ScragCity is saying.
The Liberal Party next time it is in government needs to do better.
My values line up with the below, and I acknowledge the bad things and how far the party has strayed:
