Open letter

To our elected representatives,

We call on you to work together to get big money out of our political system and put people back in.

This means:

  • Banning large donations to political parties and candidates.
  • Increasing the transparency of political donations, including real time reporting of donations. 
  • Limiting expenditure at election times so corporations can’t use their oversized  wallets to drown out our voices.
  • Creating an independent watchdog to investigate and stamp out corruption.
  • Stronger lobbying regulation and greater transparency so we know who’s meeting with our elected representatives and why.

It’s a crime that Australia is not a world leader in renewable energy. It’s time to phase out coal and reach our potential.

I am alarmed at the way that wealthy and powerful people and organisations such as Clive Palmer are able to dominate our political system.

It is time to bring honour and integrity back into our political system. Representative must put people before politics and power.

Until we have a more level field for political donations big money will have a disproportionate influence on our democracy.

Please – get big money out of politics! It has no place in a true democracy.

It very timely that we start to restore our democracy to ensure vested interests don’t control our governments.

There’s over a million people living below the poverty line
300,000+ homeless citizens
100,000+ homeless children
And on average there is 5,800 homeless veterans within a 12 month period
The poverty line needs to be lifted and communities need to be empowering all there people to be able to live Positive constructive lives that are sustainable joyful
If communities have judgemental opinions of some of there citizens behaving like self distructive hoodrats maybe we should understand what there missing in there lives that is causing them to behave in a manner that is self distructive to themselves and others around them
Those that have been blessed with the position to make a change in there communities and are not need to be held accountable
Just like many
below the poverty line that are struggling to get by many are just judged and told they are the problem
Well guess what the people with the position of power with the resources are living a life of luxury while they pick on the poor like school yard bullies
Everyone in counsel and politics needs to be paid a base wage as low as a Newstart allowance because and to only be rewarded further commision for the choices they make to empower all the people
And trust no blood money pocket lining school yard politic Billie will want to take a job that requires them to put the people before themselves
The right people will step up because it’s win win
Like seriously
I’m on Newstart and it’s a trap and a half
But I tell you right now if I was the leader of this nation
And I new I’d be on a Newstart salary with a commissions agreement that rewarded me with financial rewards based of the choices I made to better the existence of all my nations people
100% sign sealed delivered I’m yours
It’s a win win
And like as a politician you should be on a Newstart only wage because that’s what this country needs and in politics you have access to all the resources you need to serve your people so why do you need a large starting salary that’s already high enough that wether or not you achieve good for your countries people you can still live a luxurious lifestyle and not have to worry about loosing your job
There’s no incentive for these jokes running our country to actually give a fuck about anyone but themselves
So we must make it so each and everyone one has to work hard and make logical ethical and super long-term decisions that will benefit the entire population not just them and there ritch friends and there multinational cash cows
