System is broken
WE are witnessing the death of the democratic system.
Think not? Consider the results of the last US election.
It seems, according to media reporting, that half the country do not agree with the official results and openly defy their constitution.
Brexit, another instance. The losers now want a second go at the referendum.
Daylight saving In Queensland, same again.
I can’t name the wise person who said: “When the recipients of welfare can out-vote the providers of welfare, the system is broken.” The system Is broken.
It makes no difference to me as I have been a pensioner for many years and get my welfare no matter which party is in power.
The country is and has been in a good hands for quite some time.
Unemployment, lowest in years, half of them, unemployable (that unemployable figure is never taken into account).
Debt on the way down. A problem for both sides of politics. No more unauthorised immigrants, detention centres closed, children out of Nauru.
No country can afford the welfare debt that now exists.
Forty per cent of Australian workers pay no positive income tax, over and above welfare received.
The tax office is owed $20-something billion. Hence my original statement that the receivers outnumber the providers?
That is undeniably reflected in the current polls. The system is broken.
When it comes time, choose carefully. John Britton, Brinsmead
