@JuliaGillard crams election keywords into meaningless sentence.

Gillard says people need to focus on their jobs (STILL NO MENTION OF FAIRPAY), their children’s education (LABOR & COALITION HAVE TURNED SCHOOLS INTO REGURGITATOR FACTORIES.SAUDs LEADING A DOWNGRADE OF ACCEPTANCE OF AUSTRALIAN UNIVERSITY STANDARDS), better health care (GET YOUR DRUGS ONLINE FROM DOCTOR VIRTUAL)and going forward (STILL NO DEFINITIVE OF WHERE FORWARD IS) into the future with conviction. If they think about these big issues before they vote – as well as broadband (what about Internet Filter) and climate (COMPARED TO CHINA SPAIN BRAZIL AND CHINA, AUSTRALIAN GOVT POSITION ON CLIMATE IS DENIAL) change – that’s all she asks.

We agree.Australians should consider all of above, but also

Human Rights:

Indigenous – Northern Territory Intervention required a suspension of Human Rights Act & castigated by UN Special Rapponteur James Anaya .

Human Rights:

Refugees – Although it is NOT illegal for undocumented people to come to Australia, there is bipartisan political animosity towards refugees especially from Sri Lanka and Afghanistan.

Climate:

The world accepted minimum standard to be met to ensure minimal human driven climate impact is 350 parts per million carbon emissions, AND 30% reductions of 1990 emissions levels.An ETS DOES NOT reduce emissions.Nor does a discussion between 150 people @JuliaGillard or anyone selects.The leading solution available in Australia is Beyond Zero  which will reduce Australias Energy Emissions to Zero in ten years. Support politicians who support this.

Affordability: Under the Howard-Abbott and Rudd-Gillard regimes real incomes have fallen due to draconian anti-worker restrictions on workers rights to lobby effectively for FairPay while allowing unrestrained price hikes by all sectors,including government.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Past Performance:

Labor won the 2007 elections on the key platforms of Climate Resolution and Resolving Homelessness.They have NOT done either.Nor will their current policies effect resolution of those issues.

The Coalition has a history of anti worker exploitative policies, placing the economy on a pedestal and environmental tokenism.Demonstrable duplicity examples include “never ever a GST” the children overboard lie” and Abbotts own statement.

On this basis our advisement is to not entrust control of Australias future to either of the major parties.It is essential that Greens, preferably with other parties,control the balance of responsibility in Senate. It is preferable to have the balance of responsibility in the lower house held by smaller parties or independents. But most importantly think before you vote.

Some interesting politicians and would be politicians on Twitter include:

@TurnbullMalcolm Liberal, member for Wentworth, supporter of Beyond Zero and committed to mitigating man-made Climate change. Integrity.Business sense.Economics credentials.Taxation Expert. Launched Oz-E-Mail.Vision. Our preferred Leader of Liberal Party bringing stability and researched timely policy to a shambolic Party. Said to have some insightful views on social housing also. We support him on the basis of his Beyond Zero support, but disagree strongly with his NBN position.

@leerhiannon Lee Rhiannon, Greens, seeking Senate list seat. Long term NSW Senator and activist known for supporting peoples, Green and marginalised groups. Didn’t just wake up one morning and decide to enter politics.Parents were well known political activists too. Counting on an excellent Green Senate vote to get over the line.

@burwoodgreen Christine Donayre, Greens Candidate Watson, current Burwood local body councillor.

@Julie_Gilmore Lead Senate Candidate for Carers Alliance Western Australia.

@SocialistAllnce The Socialist Alliance is a Broad Left Coalition active in promoting progressive policies and politics in Australia.

Other interesting Pollies Parties deserving consideration:

Greens looking a good indigenous choice in Northern Territory – Greens Indigenous candidates standing in Lingiari / NT senate combo

Bringing Sexy Back  Australian Sex Party Policies .

Bob Katter Independent Member for KennedyJust the opposite is true, Nothing will unless you do.” Well known and respected in huge electorate.Helps Farmers with farmwork while talking to them -Farming is time critical. His electorate covers controversial new Gas extractive area with imminent collision between Farming Green & Extractive interests. Not known for bullshit & intolerant of same. On song with local indigenous community and kept Sugar Ray Robinson in check. A key independent most unlikely to be unemployed post election but …Good luck,Bob.
