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!
