Since the days of Gough Whitlam, Malcolm Fraser, Don Chipp and Bob Brown, there has developed a monotonous uniformity in Australian politics.
Over the years, a green slime has infected all major parties - they now differ in details but not in principle.
First we had bipartisan support for preserving cuddly wild-life and locking up a few green places.
Then they added “global warming” to their political agenda. When the warming did not obey their scary narrative, they added “wild weather” to support their “kill coal, cars and cattle” agenda. All these scares were designed to panic people into supporting a hard green anti-industry mind set. Even their “Build-back-better” means “Build-back-green”.
Now the Covid scare has created a Brave New World controlled by a National Cabinet armed with never-ending jabs and a lock-down/track-and-trace mentality. Climate and Energy lockdowns are discussed behind green doors. There is now little difference in principle between Liberals, Labor and Greens – soon they will all promote emissions targets and parrot green slogans.
Bowing continually to UN dictates and endless ABC/BBC propaganda, their Net Zero policies have multiplied electricity costs, harmed processing and manufacturing industries while defacing our grasslands, farms and forests with wind towers, solar “farms”, access tracks and spider webs of power lines that carry no power for much of the time. Now they propose to pollute our coastal waters with these unnecessary and unreliable industrial monstrosities.
It is time to VOTE FOR REAL CHANGE - break Green Power by ranking all parties and candidates and putting the greenest last.
With thoughtful and disciplined behaviour at the ballot box (for BOTH Senate and House of Reps) we can get rid of the duds and stop the green rot.
First job – identify the worst candidates and parties. Preference them last on both House of Reps and Senate ballot papers when you vote.
The most dangerous candidates in this election are The Sneaky Greens – they pose as independents but are being supported by rich climate crazies and, if elected, will soon appear in their deep green uniforms. Unless you know better, put all “independents”, Climate 200 and Get-Up supported candidates last.
Just above them put the declared Greens and their allies in the ALP. Then select all Liberals above all of the Green/ALP alliance.
Then focus on who should get your top votes. Choose your numbers 1, 2, 3, 4 etc candidates from the Freedom-Friendly-Minor-Parties.
For the House of Reps, number every square, in order, giving preference to the parties below:
Campbell Newman, Topher Field and the Liberal Democrats
Pauline Hanson, George Christensen and the PHON Candidates
Clive Palmer, Craig Kelly and United Australia Candidates
Bob Katter and Katter Australia Party
Shooters, Fishers and Farmers
Citizen Party and some Christian parties
Lastly, Nationals, then Liberals, then Labor, then Greens
Number every square all the way down to Unknowns and the climate crazy “independents”.
For the Senate (which may have a large complicated white ballot paper) it is safer and easier to number every square above the line, using the same party ranking rules as above.
