Yup, it is like the Libs are trying to make the coming recession the worst ever. Will make our recession one of the worst around, again, just like the 1930s. Cunts indeed.

I'm really fast tuning out. and I'll be taking advantage of a pre-poll vote in my local area.


I don't want to hear anything more from them... meaning The PM Scott Morrison, and Treasurer, Joshua Frydenberg. Or whatever they call themselves.. The dastardly duo.? The terrible twins.?
The scurrilous scumbags.? The useless users.?

Am I interested in the BUDGET.? NO.

WHY..? Because nothing will change for me, nor many others. OH we might get another one-off payment..
But TAX CUTS..? NAH. You have to have enough income to pay TAX, for tax cuts to matter. What a joke. Once again the rich get richer...

Ohh please, Labor are so desperate to be the good guys, everyone in Australia would have a Whole new Kitchen and a New TV by now and Australia would have triple the debt from this pandemic.... Plus all the big business that pays for labor would still have Tax breaks snuck in while we are being distracted....

Open the other eye Don. The Libs aren’t liberals in any form, but neoliberalis.

Liberalism is a political and moral philosophy based on liberty, consent of the governed and equality before the law. Liberals espouse a wide array of views depending on their understanding of these principles, but they generally support free markets, free trade, limited government, individual rights, capitalism, democracy, secularism, gender equality, racial equality, internationalism, freedom of speech, freedom of the press and freedom of religion



In the inalienable rights and freedoms of all peoples; and we work towards a lean government that minimises interference in our daily lives; and maximises individual and private sector initiative
In government that nurtures and encourages its citizens through incentive, rather than putting limits on people through the punishing disincentives of burdensome taxes and the stifling structures of Labor's corporate state and bureaucratic red tape.
In those most basic freedoms of parliamentary democracy - the freedom of thought, worship, speech and association
In a just and humane society in which the importance of the family and the role of law and justice is maintained.
In equal opportunity for all Australians; and the encouragement and facilitation of wealth so that all may enjoy the highest possible standards of living, health, education and social justice.
That, wherever possible, government should not compete with an efficient private sector; and that businesses and individuals - not government - are the true creators of wealth and employment.
In preserving Australia's natural beauty and the environment for future generations.
That our nation has a constructive role to play in maintaining world peace and democracy through alliance with other free nations.
In short, we simply believe in individual freedom and free enterprise; and if you share this belief, then ours is the Party for you.



I think you will find they are Liberals :smirk:applause

In the United States liberalism is associated with the welfare-state policies of the New Deal program of the Democratic administration of Pres. Franklin D. Roosevelt, whereas in Europe it is more commonly associated with a commitment to limited government and laissez-faire economic




I think your just getting mixed up and thinking American associations are the de-facto for the rest of the world.

Since we are not in America.......

No, we have three neoliberal political Parties here: Libs, Nats & Greens.

Neolibs defund social programs, privatise, give money to the rich, unwind environment protection, labor protection etc laws. Howard turned the Libs into neolibs.

Neoliberalism is essentially an intentionally imprecise stand-in term for free market economics, for economic sciences in general, for conservatism, for libertarians and anarchists, for authoritarianism and militarism, for advocates of the practice of commodification, for center-left or market-oriented progressivism, for globalism and welfare state social democracies, for being in favor of or against increased immigration, for favoring trade and globalization or opposing the same, or for really any set of political beliefs that happen to be disliked by the person(s) using the term.

That's what Neoliberal is :ROFL1:mmoon2

Australia
In Australia, neoliberal economic policies (known at the time as "economic rationalism"[163] or "economic fundamentalism") have been embraced by governments of both the Labor Party and the Liberal Party since the 1980s. The Labor governments of Bob Hawke and Paul Keating from 1983 to 1996 pursued a program of economic reform focused on economic liberalisation. These governments privatised government corporations, deregulated factor markets, floated the Australian dollar and reduced trade protections.

The government of John Howard (1996–2007) added fiscal prudence to the mix, running surpluses in eight out of its 11 years in office.[165]

Keating, building on policies he had introduced while federal treasurer, implemented a compulsory superannuation guarantee system in 1992 to increase national savings and reduce future government liability for old age pensions.[166]
The financing of universities was deregulated, requiring students to contribute to university fees through a repayable loan system known as the Higher Education Contribution Scheme (HECS) and encouraging universities to increase income by admitting full-fee-paying students, including foreign students.[167]



So the only thing Howard brought into the mix was having a Surplus......
Hahaha :ROFL1:applause:jumping

In 1989, the Hawke Labor Government began gradually re-introducing fees for university study. It set up the Higher Education Contributions Scheme (HECS)
In 1992, under the Keating Labor Government, the compulsory employer contribution scheme became a part of a wider reform package addressing Australia's retirement income dilemma.

Yup pillars of socialism........
