Hi All

With all this discussion about revolutions around the world, and with my own current circumstances, I have realised that we need to have a revolution. The politics in this country appear good...but they are VERY BAD. They only care about big company. Poor, private companies, and the people who own and run them, get squashed out of the market, AND taxed by the government differently than BIG company.

IT'S TIME TO EVEN UP THE ODDS. IT'S TIME TO REALLY SPEAK UP AS CITIZENS WITH A VOICE

VIVA LA REVOLUTION AUSTRALIA

Queensland Flood Levy Tax.....BS
Carbon Tax.....BS

It's all BS, we've been screwed over and it's time for change....but every political group is the same and truly do not have our interests at heart.

I have said this for a very long time.

Unfortunately Australians are way to apathetic and cruisey to take action...or to even notice what is going on. All I know is that the cost of living is spinning out of control, and the government continues to sell every asset they (ie. we) own. The prices increase further to line the pockets of shareholders of those assets! Why do a companies own out water system? Our electrical system? Our sewage service? Our roads? Our rubbish collection...then all these are contracted back to the government with profit attached. Our government has lost touch of the simplest of services they are meant to provide their people...and we wonder why they cant handle bigger issues like the health care system or education, or heaven forbid the budget in general. some call this Capitalism at its finest, but screw my water, power, rates, bills increasing 10-20% each year even though I've moved to solar power and tank water! When does it end? I read recently that the Sunshine Coast, Queensland where I am is the 2nd most expensive city in the world to live behind Tokyo, based on income to cost of living ratio. Are you kidding me? Is this what Australia has become. We are simple people wanting to live a simple clean life, but our government has screwed us over big time, now young families cant afford rent, let alone a mortgage. Big companies and the rich rule this place, and the government.

We are the frog in the slowly heating frypan. One day we'll wake up cooked.

Forget the ruddy football, forget surfing for 5 minutes and Viva la revolution Australia!!

i moved here from england three years ago and i think it's a great country with great people and "we" did fair ok ish through the GFC. all that being said, i'm totally on board with this, we need a total overhaul of the bogus government system and replace it with a system that serves us, the people, instead of it being the other way around. your right in saying most people are a little too much on the laid back side to be lining the streets but it's looking more and more likely that this whole revolutionary movement is spreading the entire world like never before, it would only take the likes of the UK or USA to start, then we my friends... will get what we want! mind you, we'd have to do alot of work to get the "sheeple" awakened enough to stand up because the MSM wouldn't show anything that may invoke a similar situation happening here... we'd have to get it out there ourselves!

WE ARE THE RESISTANCE, WE ARE CHANGE!

True, but at the rate Australia is raping it's natural resources to sell overseas we should be doing much better than just OK..
We should be rolling in money but instead we have a deficit.

What will happen when all our resources are gone???.

Precisely. We have Rich minerals...but I personally earn 60000 a year...rent a 3 bedroom house, lease a car so I can maintain my reliability in this middle income bracket that I am in....we have 3 children and my partner is Mum to our 17 month old. The other 2 are in school.

We barely earn enough to be comfortable for someone in my income bracket, and we manage our money well.

When I got a pay rise the government taxed me more AND took some of my partners parenting payment!!! Double dipping SCUM. My pay rise (a 5000 dollar one) amounted to us earning a measly amount extra. I was gutted.

THIS IS NOT THEY WAY PEOPLE WHO WORK HARD TO GET SOMEWHERE SHOULD BE TREATED

THEY ARE TAKING OUR MONEY AND GIVING US NOTHING IN RETURN....NOTHING

Something needs to be done... before we're owned by China.

Australia is one of the most over-governed nations on this planet, and I'm sick to death of the Federal, State government and local councils taking my money.

Im in a very similar situation as yourself and it #s me to tears.....

no matter what I do it seems the cost of living keeps pushing me further back and Im fed up with it.

What really peeves me off is this current Gillard Government....they are totally destroying the Australian economy and the Left Leaning media is supporting them.

We have a primeminister that didnt get voted in to power by THE PEOPLE in control of this government.

We have 3 independant MP's that got her over the line and hold the balance of power. Whilst she and the labour party spend any profit the Liberal Party left us with.

I used to be a labour voter but after Rudd and now Gillard they have totaly changed the way I look at local politics.

Not to mention the CIA backed/supported ousted of Rudd by Gillard....exposing Mark Arbib as the CIA contact within the labour party, This is documented.

Funny thing also is that Gillard has always been a socialist....member of the communist party whilst growing up and going to University yet here she is put in power by the right of the labour party.

How can that work?

If this Carbon tax gets in this country is finished.

I am so very in


But I agree with the fact that as a whole we are far from an "informed" or curious nation of people.

It'll take a lot to shock us out of our "outback" reverie I think.

Australia could start by kicking all the immigrants out and actually create jobs that Aussies can do without being ripped off by Indians who are prepared to work for nothing. We could also ban Muslim and Islam religions. also tax those groups double and half the tax of normal Australians. Bring back the convict nation of caucasians. Shane Warne for PM.

There is nothing Australia needs to import but we do. Thanks Freemasons thanks globalization, NWO. once we figure that out it would be so much better. More jobs more money, forget trading with other countries. Stop all aid to other countries. It quite easy. The country would be made for the better in under 5 years.

In answer to this I agree in part.....Globalisation and capitalism has not been the best method I beleive.

Not saying that socialism is the answer either but what I do beleive IS the answer is anti-global in concept.

Let me use the auto industry as an example here in Australia as one part of the dwindling yet once strong manufacturing base we used to have.

In 1990 the labour governments inplemented a study which was taken onboard that reduced the tarrifs on vehicle imports from 20% I beleive down to 15% doen to 10% and down to 5% now.

This has made imported vehicles cheaper under the excuse of making the auto market more "competitive globally", at the expense of Nissan Motors, then Mitsubishi, and more than likely Ford in the near future and the loss of thousand of jobs in the automotive sector.

For what? Just to be competitive globally?

Who the hell says we have to be competitive?

Go to Malaysia and you will see what sort of vehicle tarrifs they have on imports - bloody massive tarrifs to protect their local auto industry.

Givernments should put Australia and Australians first. something they have not done for a while. This is but only one sector. many other sector have faced the same demise.

NOW - how do we combat this?

The one thing that Adolf Hitler is reknowned for is for rebuilding the germany economy into a superpower in a very very short amount of time. How did he do this?

Simple premise really....

If it has to be imported, then we build it here locally. We give industry tax exemptions to build products locally that used to be imported. We raise the tarrifs on all imported products. The local industry then thrives...expands...employs alot more people. This allows the government to bring in more skilled migrants which adds to the tax base revenue for the government.

We need to change the tax system also so it gives incentives to people to work.

At the moment the more you work the more tax you pay. Should be the other way around...the more you work the less tax you pay. So people are encouraged to work more. This benefits the country and in tern the government. People have more to spend which the government gets back through GST revenue.

The money stays in Australia and builds Australia up.

The more kids you have the less tax you should have to pay as the bread winner of the family. This is building Australias population and rather than having to rely on immigration and once again...future tax payers for the government.

I know its a long rant.....sorry, but when government start thinking about the future and becoming pro-active rather than reactive and thinking about the here and now, then this nation will become a much better place.

We have so much untapped potential, there is no reason why a nation of ours with such a comparably low population could not become an economic powerhouse and an example to the rest of the world.

In 1974 Australia was still caled the "Lucky country"... you could buy a T Bone steak dinner at a Hotel for $1.00.
You could buy a brand new Holden for approx $3000.00.
You could buy a comfortable 3brm home for $20,000.
Australians owned the farms and most of the mines.
People were paid a fair wage for a fair weeks work.

Selling out your land to the Chinese and Indian billionares and communist government would have had those responsible tried for treason against the Nation.

Allowing China and India to import their own nationals into Australia to supply the labour for their mining quarries would have had those passing the law run out of parliament by the masses.

But today we are a nation silenced by treason.

Well, better put your money where you mouth is...

Time for self-immolation....

But before you do, can I ask if you've looked into the reasons as to why people are revolting?

I agree things aren't too peachy here at the moment but face it, we haven't been oppressed by a dictator for decades or suffering extreme poverty and unemployment or discovered corruption by the government from wikileaks.

These are the things that brought on the recent revolutions and I honestly in comparison I don't see what we in Australia have to complain about (mostly).

Just a theory but ever considered that the chain of events around the world are leading us towards a global revolution that will usher in a world governance.

Your kidding Chad..
Why the hell does a country like Australia, rich in resources, have a deficit??

They are digging up our resources and shipping them overseas at an incredible rate..
The country SHOULD be running a huge surplus..
Once these resources are gone, then where will we be..

We are the most over governed country in the western world and pay one of the highest rates of total tax and charges..
Are cost of living is also high as are interest rates..
Combined with high property prices, thanks to Government laws, it's almost impossible for young couples to buy a home..

I worry for my children's future...

...And a revolution is in the best interest for your children?

I said things aren't peachy but they aren't so bad the government needs violently overthrowing.
