The world as we know it

Gillard and Co. killing the freedoms our ANZACs died for

To see the full letter from the government click here; Carbontax

The ALP’s Carbon Tax is a terrible assault on the freedoms and prosperity of our great nation. Not only has it been brought in by an illegitimate minority government who lyingly promised prior to the election that it wouldnt bring it in, but the way it is being implemented is;

1. against the constitution (illegal for Feds to tax State owned assets such as power companies),

2. is being set up so the Gillard Government has no accountability for it and full immunity from it’s repurcussions, and

3. has been written so it will be as hard and as expensive as possible for the Australian people to repeal, even with a referendum on the issue.

In summary the ALP have lied to you, refuse any accountability for their actions and are making sure its punitive consequences are as far reaching as possible whilst denying the people as many rights as possible to remove what they didn’t approve of in the first place. Worse still the claimed reason for the carbon tax – to lower global temperatures – will not be achieved. Government’s own modelling has shown the carbon tax will not reduce global temperatures. Furthermore contrary to what the ALP has claimed the rest of the world is not following this carbon tax folly but backing off as the globe cools.

Worse yet there has been no due diligence by the ALP government in checking the data for the whole global warming alarmism with actual temperature records invalidating the whole global warming theory and ongoing scientific developments showing rationally, as common sense says, that it is the sun drives the climate not CO2. Furthermore the IPCC who the government deflects to has shown to be a biased, corrupt rabble of vested interests who cannot be relied upon for truth about the climate.

It is not just the deceit of the carbon tax that is appalling, but the way in which it has been implemented, rushed through without due process and with no duty of care to the people.

Due process is the idea that laws and legal proceedings must be fair. The Constitution should guarantees that the government cannot take away the people’s basic rights to ‘life, liberty or property. Yet in every way the carbon tax has flouted the basic rights of the Australian people to life – by artificially inflating the cost of keeping warm so many can no longer afford life saving heat; to liberty – by failing to give Australian citizens a fair and reasonable say whether they want this tax or not and to property by squandering billions of dollars of citizens taxes on an unsubstantiated global warming theory that is now at odds with science and fact.

Duty of care is a legal obligation to avoid causing harm or injury to others. Yet with the carbon tax the ALP government will impoverish the nation unfairly all because it rammed through without consent a fraudulent tax based on a fraudulent lie which will punitively injure the public.

To have a look at just one part of the whole corrupt process – all the Australian people were given by the Gillard Government was 7 days to comment on 18 bills and 11,000 pages of documentation. Not enough time for a citizen to read let alone formulate a judgement and then articulate a reply. As such I made a complaint to the Human Rights Commission against the government. My human rights, in accordance with Article 25(a) of the ICCPR (International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights) like all Australians had been denied by the rushed process of implementing the carbon tax.  True to form was the appalling response from the ALP government (from Joanne Towner, Clerk Assistant, Department of the house of representatives) is in part as follows;

On the broader issue of jurisdiction regarding this complaint, I draw your attention to S.50 of the Constitution which provides that each house of parliament may make rules regarding the conduct of it’s business and proceedings. All of the above procedures were in accord with the Standing Orders of both Houses and the joint resolution establishing the committee which gave the committee the authority to determine it’s own processes within the standing orders.

There is a long standing immunity asserted by both Houses from the impeachment and questioning of parliamentary proceedings in Parliament by the courts or tribunals …

It is our contention that the activity of the committee were in accord with the procedures of the two Houses and that the committee had the full authority to determine the processes and procedures it considered were appropriate to the circumstances it faced. These processes and procedures are not subject to external review.

In other words Gillard’s minority government has this message to we, the people of Australia – piss off, we will do what we want and we wont be accountable to the people for our actions.

About sums up this corrupt government doesn’t it. So much for it’s sacred duty to represent the people. We are no longer governed but illegally ruled! The legal obligation of the government to the people have been ignored and the standards of Government decision making have failed. We now have those in power who are causing worse damage to this country than any foreign army ever has! Under the ALP we no longer live in freedom but oppression!

    Agreed, the carbon tax has nothing to do with improving the environment in any form and all to do with rounding up more money for an inept Government.

    I was speaking with a local environment group that has been trying for some time to get both photovoltaic solar rebates extended for home owners and a fully fledged solar plant which will power the districts 25,000 homes using “Big Solar” http://100percent.org.au/bigsolar which would cost only 300 million for a plant and operate 24/7 as it doesn’t use photovoltaic cells. The cost would average out at $12,000 per home which is cheaper than every home owner trying to fully cover their electrical needs with their own solar.

    Yet there will be no money for this from the carbon tax, the Government is already winding back the solar rebate scheme and the support for the coal industry is as strong as ever.

    Whether you’re pro solar or pro coal, the point is that the carbon tax is not going to any environmental schemes. If pro environmental groups are bagging it out you can be sure it’s a con.

    The question to ask any Labour Government minister is list just three pro environmental schemes that will be funded as a result of the carbon tax and provide a dollar figure for those schemes. According to my “Green” friends, they can’t list one and this is all being done with the vast majority of Australians from all sides of the environmental debate totally against a carbon tax as a method of improving the environment.

    This Government has turned against it’s traditional voters and all Australians with this carbon tax that won’t help the environment and hurt everyone from low income earners to businesses. Once this Government have been voted out, we need to keep up the pressure until every trace of the carbon tax and it’s effects have been overturned.

      And dont forget 10% of what is collected goes to global governance at the UN and 35% of what is collected builds bigger government. The fraud of this tax is unbelievable.

    In all my 80 plus years this has been the worst excuse for a federal government I have experienced. I preferred to call them Ali Baba Rudd/Gillard and their 40 thieves which is not a full printable description..

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,

Self-reliance is the only road to true freedom, and being one’s own person is its ultimate reward. Patricia Sampson
