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.
