You all seem to be discounting the fact that it was Labor under Rudd and Gillard who were haemorrhaging money left right and centre. Who overspent on
dud schemes most of which were strong armed through parliament by the Greens.
The Libs are just cleaning up the mess.
I think what it is that most are discounting is that there is now absolutely no difference between Labor and Liberal apart from the names. There ONCE
was a time when Labor was "blue-collar" and Liberal was white-collar/big business. If Labor wasn't the same as Liberal then they wouldn't of been
kicked out in the fashion in which they were. Yet after just several months the same people that complained about Labor are now complaining about
If you want any more proof that Labor does not care about blue-collar workers, then come and visit Wollongong and see what 40 years of unopposed Labor
support has done for the town. Labor know its a safe seat, so they don't need to spend any money. liberal knows its an unwinnable seat, so they
don't spend any money. Meanwhile, the majority in Wollongong keep voting for Labor over and over like its following their favourite sporting team.
Due to everyone saying how dissatisfied they were with Labor, Liberal knew that they would win the election by default. Why do you think Abbott made
next to no policies during the election...............it's because he knew he was going to win. This has given a free ride to Liberal until the point
where the majority say the same thing as they said about Labor. then we go on a witch hunt for Liberal and let it be known we wan them out, which
then gives a free ride back to Labor when they replace them.
This is how Australian politics works..........................Liberal raises new tax after new tax as that is how Governments make a surplus. We get
so sick of being taxed that we then give the power to Labor because "they are blue-collar". Yet Labor, especially under Gillard, was using the exact
blueprint that Liberal used. We then vote out Labor and give Liberal another few years of taxing us, which was one of the very reason for
dissatisfaction of Labor under Gillard. Circles anyone ?
BOTH Labor and Liberal are now using the same game plan, and that game plan is to take as much off us as possible, to give as many breaks as possible
to big business. Labor is now just as much "big business" as Liberal have always been. But when the only other option is the biggest hypocrites of
all....the Greens, then what option do we truly have other than removing these clowns by force and removing all forms of Reserve system in this
country. While the Reserve system continues, then the behaviour of politicians will only get worse. And if anyone thinks voting for the other party
will change anything, then I ask them, what country have you been living in for the last 30-40 years ? And what has been the difference between the
last Labor government and this current Liberal government ?
