The world as we know it

So much for Labor democracy!

In an appalling display of anti-democratic behaviour the Australian Labor party today prevented debate on the ETS;

Quote from the SMH; “the (Labor) government used its lower house majority to gag debate and bring on the ETS vote before midday, when Prime Minister Kevin Rudd delivered his second Closing the Gap progress report on indigenous disadvantage.

Opposition MPs said it was “outrageous” and “scandalous” that 13 speakers still listed to debate the ETS legislation missed out on having their say.

It is also ironic that the Liberal Party allows members to vote according to conscience and Malcolm Turncoat Turnbull crossed the floor to vote against his party. Yet the labor Party does not allow its politicians to have a conscience vote and as such dissenting voices within the Labor Party were also denied a voice.

So we have an appalling policy that has been shown to be based on fraudulent science trying to be rammed through parliament for the third time, without debate and without freedom for politicians to speak out against it. This policy will do nothing for the environment and harm our economic well being!

History will be remember this Labor Party as nothing less than one of the worst examples of politics in Australia.

We fight not to enslave, but to set a country free, and to make room upon the earth for honest men to live in. Thomas Paine

Above all, we must realize that no arsenal or no weapon in the arsenals of the world is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. RONALD REAGAN,
My definition of a free society is a society where it is safe to be unpopular. Adlai E. Stevenson Jr
If you want to be free, there is but one way; it is to guarantee an equally full measure of liberty to all your neighbors. There is no other. Carl Schurz
The First Amendment is often inconvenient. But that is besides the point. Inconvenience does not absolve the government of its obligation to tolerate speech. Justice Anthony Kennedy
Self-reliance is the only road to true freedom, and being one’s own person is its ultimate reward. Patricia Sampson
Many politicians are in the habit of laying it down as a self-evident proposition that no people ought to be free till they are fit to use their freedom. The maxim is worthy of the fool in the old story who resolved not to go into the water till he had learned to swim. Thomas Macaulay
The law will never make men free, it is men that have to make the law free. Henry David Thoreau
If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter. George Washington
