Just think about how many freedoms we lost in 2020 and 2021... now we are in a worse situation and our freedoms are returning. What a coincidence that
the federal elections are just around the corner, it's almost like they know the majority of voters are beyond fed up with this nonsense and now they
decide to listen to those complaints. The most ironic part of all this is that Labor will probably win the next election despite the fact the most
locked down states were Labor-run states such as Victoria, Queensland, and Western Australia.
Nearly the entire world was criticizing Australia for having some of the harshest lockdowns on the planet. They even held a "Save Australia" protest
in New York City a few months back. But the cost of living is rising to astronomic levels and Labor gets votes by offering endless handouts, and
people never consider the fact massive cash handouts just cause more inflation, thus increase the cost of living. People prefer that temporary relief
rather than consider the long term impacts. That also applies to these recent handouts right before the election.
Well as predicted Labor won, just another in a series of elections around the world where the same people who enforced the most absurd Covid-19
restrictions are now the exact same people that we're voting to lead us forward in the brave new world. Melbourne was one of the most locked down
cities in the world, two different people in Melbourne burned themselves alive in protest.
It wasn't hard to foresee this outcome, because Labor was able to blame everything that happened during the pandemic on the Morrison government.
Similar to how the Dems blamed everything on Trump, and now all that blame gets dumped onto Biden even though he might not deserve all of it (yes I
know, it's shocking to see me say anything in favor of Biden).
That's not to say Biden isn't responsible for creating a lot of the problems he now faces, his poor policies clearly are the reason for many of the
problems. Likewise, Morrison has made many poor leadership decisions, and in many ways he deserved to lose this election. Labor also had a much more
effective advertisement campaign, they were talking about how to solve issues.
Whereas the Morrison government just had a dumb advert about Labor raising taxes to cover all their social spending. Who ever came up with that advert
needs to be fired, and I say this as someone who believes in minimizing taxes. Did they really think voters care that much about paying more taxes
after the media has spent years brainwashing people to be socialists?
If voters think their taxes are going to solve issues that they think need immediate attention, like inequality, the cost of health care, and climate
change, then people are perfectly willing to pay more taxes. It's fine to point out issues in the Labor budget, but you can't make that the focal
point of the election because it comes off as childish and desperate.
Right now in the United States, we are seeing what happens when people vote for "social justice" and wokism. It's interesting, because the political
climate is almost the opposite to what we see occurring in Australia. You guys are quickly shifting back to the right due to the poor leadership of a
left-leaning President, and I predict Biden has no chance of winning the next election.
Our political climate has shifted to the left due to the poor leadership of a "conservative" leader the past several years. I use quotes because the
Morrison government is barely conservative in any way. To make things much worse, Morrison had to lead us through the pandemic, and several massive
natural disasters, including multiple fires and floods, plus a long drought period.
Of course all of these natural disasters are the result of climate change, assuming we believe the media. When we have floods, it's because global
warming causes more ocean water to evaporate, but when we have droughts it's because global warming dried up all the water. It couldn't possibly just
have anything to do with natural weather cycles Australia has always had.
So now, we are the nation of critical climate action, the nation of socialism, and we love our dictators telling us how to live our lives. Because
that's what the MSM has conditioned us to be, we are a land of true intellectuals and forward thinkers. But just give it a few years, and we'll be
saying "man this government sucks, time for a change", and back and forth we go.
Regardless of which of the two parties are in control, real issues never seem to get solved. Who would have guessed that simply taxing people more and
creating money out of thin air isn't a real solution... how could we possibly know that allowing the government to endlessly grow, with higher taxes,
more regulations, less freedoms, doesn't actually result in a better world.
