Do you ever sit and think to yourself about all the wonderful things you would like to do for your family, friends, local community and Australians generally?
If you are anything like me, it is frustrating when you want to help make the lives of others that little bit easier, better, happier, safer (and so on) But struggle with ever getting yourself to the position where you can genuinely have a positive impact on the lives of others.
I would love to be elected to parliament and stand up for those who are being hard done by or treated unfairly or simply being overlooked and forgotten.
Whether it is the unemployed, the low income earners, people with disabilities or whether it is small businesses who are struggling to stay afloat, there are so many groups within our country who are being dealt a raw deal by those currently in power.
When was the last time the government got tough on banks? The last thing l remember about politicians & banks was the Australian Government acted like their insurer and provided a guarantee to investors that their money would be safe and in the event of a banking crisis it would be the Australian Tax Payer who would return any lost funds…. Whilst it was the Government on behalf of the tax payer who did a massive favour for the banks, it was the banks who decided it was reasonable to charge consumers a $2 fee for using an ATM (Machine). One would have thought that Government would have insisted on the banks doing something kind/considerate towards Australians and demanded that ATM fees be abolished in return for the Government Banking Guarantee…. But no, that didn’t happen.
There are so many issues at the moment that it is impossible to list them all, but in short l am one for “Common Sense” and l am also very much for looking after your own backyard first & foremost, which among other things also means we must stop Australia being sold out to foreign investors because we are heading down a path which has zero prospects for our children/grand children and may ultimately see Australia one day owned and controlled by the Chinese Government.
Anyways, getting back on track, l would love to get into Canberra and make some noise. There are many issues that l have strong opinions on and many that l am open minded about. I ask that people who read my blog and this post in particular, please keep visiting and when the time comes l will ask everyone who is willing to get behind me and help spread the word.
If there is anyone who is standing or considering to stand as an independent l would be very happy to chat sometime and possibly help with your individual campaigns.
I should also point out that while l will most likely stand as an independent, l am currently a Palmer United Party member and supporter. I strongly believe that Clive Palmer has the best of intentions and has thus far been standing up to the LNP Government as best he can. While there are many within the community who choose to “Knock, Bag & Criticise” Clive Palmer, l simply say that you should not always believe what you see, hear and read…. The Mainstream Media does have an agenda which is often different to PUP and that sometimes influences the way in which Clive is portrayed by the media…… so please don’t let them fool you.
