I'd like to begin an open and honest discussion, about the possibility of Australia becoming a state within the American union.
I recently found this pdf file (www.anzasa.arts.usyd.edu.au...
) which contains an analysis of the concept.
While I understand that this premise might initially be highly offensive to some Australians, I would encourage them to be realistic in their
perception of the issue. In reality, in de facto terms it has already happened. Julia Gillard is Australia's answer to Harmid Karzai; a relatively
blatant pro-American puppet who gained power undemocratically, and rules almost entirely without the consent of the people.
I feel that the time has come, to honestly acknowledge the fact that Australia no longer has independent national sovereignty, from the American
government in any meaningful practical terms. The career of Mark Latham in particular was destroyed over his daring to suggest that the Australian
government might not unquestioningly follow the American government's lead during the second Iraq war.
I also know that there has at times been a debate within Australia, about the country becoming a republic in its' own right; however, this is an
illusion which I think needs to be dispelled once and for all. As much as we may dislike it, real independence for us has never been on the table.
We will either be a formal part of the British Commonwealth, or an informal part of the American union; and I say that if, as it has appeared in
recent years, that we are heading down the latter road anyway, then let us acknowledge it honestly, and have it happen with our eyes open to it.
How do Americans feel about this? If there was an Australian petition to join the union, would any of you be willing to accept it?
