Australian republic commentary by Anne Ozard
Mal Turnbull, his UN backed friends and the Red Bandana Man are yet again advocating an Australian Republic. However, before the republic pro-politicians should even think about an Australian republic, they need to get on with the job of running the country - running the country well on behalf of the people - and bringing our debt back into line.
The budget must be in the black before we consider any idea that is costly to the taxpayer and the Australian public generally. The last thing we need is politicians wasting their time, and our money, on something that is completely unnecessary in the overall scheme. Should our United Nations controlled puppet politicians decide they wish to proceed with this unnecessary expense, they must firstly ask the people.
They must first establish a referendum, again at great cost to the taxpayer. And, again, they must get the debt fixed before they should consider spending on such waste. Given Australian voters are fed up with 'career politicians' and changes to Prime Ministers as they feel fit, the decline in representation of the people in our governments today, and their deliberate fiscal mismanagement, it is more than likely that a referendum for a Republic may just win the "Yes" vote. People are screaming for change - particularly change of politicians doing as they please and being unanswerable to those they represent.
We need change, but how do we do it? Our vote has meant nothing for some many years now, nor has our voting worked by way of changing government in 2013 and then another change of Prime Minister in 2015. We continue to be dealt a blow with politicians who care not for the Australian public.
Politicians are very good at fooling the general public. People call them "fools", but we, the people, are the fools. Change to our political scene is absolutely necessary. We, the people, are the only ones that can do it. With the right Constitution, or alterations to our existing Constitution, and the right way forward, we can do it.
It's time for a change, the right change though. It must be change that serves the Australian people, not the politicians and other parasites leeching off the Australian people and particularly, the Australian taxpayers.
