Liberal Party – No.
Today, Australians go to the Polls.
My values fall in line fairly consistently with Greens Policy, to be honest.
I’d be looking at Labor after that, who fall in behind the greens, for me, personally.
Of course, no party ever gets everything right all of the time. With such a diverse range of people to represent, its not hard to work that out.
I still have an expectation that they will try their very best, particularly when it comes to supporting those most vulnerable in our society. The children, the elderly, those members of the community who have experienced pain and hardship and need a helping hand.
The policies of the Liberal Party breach some of the fundamental principles I relate to being Australian. Fair Go, Compassion, taking care of each other and our fellow man.
I’ve done my research and was clear that I would NOT vote for Liberals before I came across this:
LIBERAL PARTY —-> What a DISGRACEFUL, sneaky thing to do. Waiting til the day before the election to let the Australian Public know you are reducing the Legal Support to Indigenous Australians by 40 Million dollars over the next 3 years. This will not only result in exponentially higher rates of indigenous incarceration when Indigenous people cannot access the legal representation they need, BUT doesn’t even make sense in terms of cost effective policy.
= MORE time in courts
= higher incarceration rates
= emotional & physical harm
= self medication (drugs and alcohol)
= mental and physical health services required
= more crime
= back to the courts
All costing more of this:
Cuts to Save money that will COST MORE MONEY?
Based on this policy of cutting funding to ESSENTIAL Legal Aid services for indigenous Australians – I’m not buying the Liberal Partys claim that they are committed to ‘Reducing the Gap’
Tony Abbott – No Thank you. As a Woman, Australian and Human Being I don’t want this man representing me. Some of these quotes (HIS words) explain why.
