2019 Campaign Key Policies
In everything we do, ensure the interests of Australians come first: Australian working families, employers, job seekers, pensioners, soldiers, veterans and our frail, sick and homeless. Australians take precedent over globalist greed, foreign regimes, welfare tourists, criminals and corrupt career politicians. While presiding over a massive resources boom and selling off public assets, corrupt career politicians still racked up $800+ BILLION in public debt. This socio-economic suicide must stop.
GUARANTEE FREEDOM OF SPEECH
Scrap federal and state laws which destroy our right to speak and criticise. Government agencies must actively protect freedom of speech, as guaranteed by Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
HOLDING OUR REPRESENTATIVES TO ACCOUNT
Parliamentarians represent the people, not a party or donors. We propose a mechanism to trigger a no confidence vote in an electorate, should a certain number of voters demand it.
A SUSTAINABLE POPULATION LIVING IN HARMONY
Zero net immigration program with a clear preference for migrants and refugees who speak our language, share our values and contribute to our Commonwealth. Instead of divisive multiculturalism and oppressive political correctness, we want to work towards an integrated, multiethnic Australia. We stand for mandatory visa cancellation and deportation for serious criminal and notorious anti-social behaviour. No more onshore appeals.
STOP GLOBALISM AND RE-INDUSTRIALISE AUSTRALIA
Support Australian industry, farmers and value-adding businesses. This will be funded by a levy on imported goods and services, which are also available from Australian suppliers. We will take back control of our basic means of production, our air and seaports, utilities, communication networks and national railroads. Restrict access to personal data of Australians from offshore call centres and service providers. Extend special protections to our merchant fleet, fishing industry and Qantas, our international flag carrier.
FIX THE ENERGY CRISIS
Ensure access to affordable, reliable and clean energy. Enforce a domestic quota for all oil and gas exploration. We must place the national energy distribution network into public hands, end subsidies for unreliable wind and solar schemes and support clean coal, hydroelectric and advanced nuclear as our primary energy sources. Guarantee an ‘at cost’ tariff for utilities for pensioners.
FAIRER, SIMPLER TAXES
Instead of complicated schemes to tax the income of those who work and produce, it is fairer and simpler to tax consumption at point of sale. We will reduce and flatten income tax for individuals and companies and in turn broaden and adjust the GST. This attracts more investment and jobs, reduces the incentive for tax evasion and minimises the offshoring of profits.
GUARANTEE A LIVABLE AGE PENSION
In Australia’s capital cities, it is near impossible to make ends meet on the minimum wage. However, many age pensioners must survive on far less. We must fix the age pension at 75% of minimum wages, adjust with inflation and allow modest earnings to supplement. Raise superannuation contributions.
SCRAP THE EXCESSIVE FUEL LEVY
The extra fuel levy of over $0.40 per litre is a severe, unfair penalty on working families and hits hardest those who live in the country and outer suburbs. Transport is essential for all Australians.
HEALING OUR HEALTH SYSTEM
Cut down on red tape for our doctors, get more high income earners into private health insurance, create extra capacity in public/private day care clinics, thereby freeing up capacity in our public hospitals.
THE RIGHT TO VOTE AS YOU SEE FIT
We don’t want our vote to end up in the wrong hands and we must not be forced to give our vote to parties or candidates we reject. Let’s replace the mandatory preferential voting with flexible preferential voting:
BANKING ON AUSTRALIA
A publicly-owned Australian Savings & Loans Bank, operating on a not-for-profit basis and providing basic banking services and superannuation as default fund for all workers, investing only in Australian mortgages, bonds and stocks.
