We can have LIVEABLE Age Pensions
First of all - WHY DON'T WE? Were our leaders so dumb that they did not provide for our retirement? The short answer is THEY DID. What proof? We had a referendum as to whether we pay a tax levy so ALL Australians could live out their last years in dignity - NOT POVERTY. We voted YES. We accepted a 7.5% take from our weekly pay. That was our part of the bargain.
The government, under our laws, were obligated to put into effect the vote because A REFERENDUM IS BINDING on government. The ALP/Dem/Lib/Nat/Greens know no honour. To them LAW MEANS NOTHING It is there for toot paper. When the Transnational told the PM, "Hand over the LOOT" he grasped his ankles. He gave control of our superannuation to privateers. Since then, as in Great Britain and USA, the Trans nationals have TRASHED super schemes to cream off billions from us, the suckers. Some scapegoat goes to "jail" for three years HARD TENNIS and serves nine months for stealing $2,000,000 (netting $500,000 a year for the nine
COMMONWEALTH OP AUSTRALIA
The CASE FOR and AGAINST
Who is to BLAME?
First of all - if we can be truthful I to ourselves - IT IS US. We have never insisted that there be penal clauses in our Constitution to PROSECUTE and FINE politicians who take bribes to hand over our wealth and security to Foreign Financiers. We have allowed the politicians to APPOINT the Chiefs of Police contravening the concept of SEPARATION OF POWERS.
We allowed the politicians to APPOINT the judges thus ensuring that ANY ILLEGAL ACT by political parties would be sanctified in our courts. We allowed politicians to be the ONE or TWO independent shareholders in the CORPORATISED public utilities so they could take bribes to sell us out for kick-backs. Every one of the CHECKS AND BALANCES of the Westminster System have been bastardised by the ALP/Dem/Lib/Nat/Green party hacks.
We never put in place the legal tools for citizens who see wrong to warn the people OR to initiate remedial action. These Tools of Democracy have been used and proven over centuries in nations like Switzerland.
Had whistleblowers warned us years ago that the ALP/Dem/Lib/Nat/Greens were undermining our Age Pension benefits and handing our super fund to the thieves and brigands of corporate crime (the Transnational) we may have had a comfortable retirement instead ALL being
SELF FUNDED RETIREES.
It is not too late, The TOOLS of DEMOCRACY are there. Please read and consider them.
