I agree totally with those comments, also in the fact that none has come up and said that it is wrong and should be stopped. I was always looking to
the US governemtn for how bad they were currupted, but now it is in my back yard, and I really don't like it.
I hate to think what else this country will lose within the next 3 years. The main problem that i think we have now, and probably will for some time
now, that nothing can be blocked in the senate because the major party has the majority. ANYTHING can be pushed through and nothing can be done about
Yeah these 'tax cuts' is another smokescreen. We have Costello saying that the Australian people (his Howards mates) can't get their tax cut
because Labor won't allow them to have it now even thou they'll have no say in it when the Libs controll the senate. He's deliberatly making Labor
out to be the bad guys who don't want Australians to have their tax cut and are only delaying it to be a pain - they don't mention the fact Labor
are demanding Costello DOUBLE the tax cut because he can easily afford too.
The more and more you watch the Liberals talk, the more and more they are relying on two tatics - 1. Blame the opposition or 2. 'Reject' the
accusations or 'we're not going to play games'.
They don't answer to ANYTHING anymore and when they have the Sentate, it's going to be impossible to get them to admit or be responsable for
The reason why it's important to watch the US and Bush so closely is because that's how you spot Howards governments corruption and dirty tricks.
Bush used the threat of terorism under Kerry if they voted for him.
Howard used the threat of interest rates under Lathom to scare the average family into believing they'll have more debt - first thing that happened
was interest rates went up under Howard and he did nothing about it and held no one responsable!
Also, a lot of people were going to protest vote or 'Donkey vote' as it's called and Howard loved that because very few people realised that Howard
worked hard about a year before the election to ensure the Liberals would be at the top of the ballot and by default the top listing gets the 'Donkey
He said we won't send more troops to Iraq - we sent more troops and after he gets the Senate, we'll send more.
They are very sneaky and double faced and they constantly just slander the Labor party each time the Labor party presents valid information. It's
really getting bad, we should have a two term policy in Australia otherwise you get people like Howard who ONLY know politics and business and are too
far seperated from real peoples needs.
