Join the Convoy to Canberra

THE Australian government has lost the confidence of many of its people particularly those in rural and regional Australia.

‘A Convoy of No Confidence’ in the Australian government will start on August 17 and will arrive at Parliament House Canberra on the August 22.

According to the ‘Just Grounds Online Community’ convoys will be on all major highways leading to Canberra. Come in your truck, car, camper, caravan, bus or horse & cart, anything that moves, just join in. Together they hope to force an Election.

    “THE Australian government has lost the confidence of many of its people particularly those in rural and regional Australia.”

    Sorry, Jennifer, this is true but it doesn’t matter – no ALP seats there. And she knows it too well (why spend money on them when they don’t vote for us ?)

    The country-city divide is concreted in now. How the cities expect to feed and energise themselves beats me

    Thirty years of inner-city apparatchik infighting does NOT a Prime Minister make

    Ianl8888,It is not just the rural areas that will be decimated.We will lose what little manufacturing we have left.Much more industry will have to move off shore under a carbon tax.Spain has a youth umeployment rate of 43% for under 25’s.the national level is 23%.The only thing saving us is China.If Labor also punish the mining industry,then China will source from cheaper sources.

    People are so apathetic in this country.I constantly hear,”Well what can I do?” Get up off you lazy backsides Aussies because the will screw us into abject poverty if we let them.Many in the ruling classes see too many humans as a blight on their planet.They are using a Green agenda to subjugate us even more.

    Go to Canberra and lodge your displeasure.Hold the blow torch of truth to Tony Abbott also.Pollies are not courageous beings and their first allegiance is to their own well being.

    What a great idea!

    This country can well do with a little extra local tourism right now. Bring the kids, stay a few days and do all the Bush Capital’s big attractions while you are here.

    I regularly check these posts and read what people say. Most put more emphasis in attacking each others points of view and this is regardless if there is good points or not.
    We are all Australians, regardless if we live in capital cities or rural areas (countryside)
    We all take part in voting to elect members in our electorates to represent us.
    Elected representatives should formost represent the people who voted for and elected them, they should not desert the people and follow their party policy especially if the policy will impact on the people who elected them.
    Many Australians are against the Carbon Tax and there are others for it. The Government has a duty to the Australian people to put it to the people in a referendum vote. This will either endorse it or not allow the government to endorse it.
    Juliar Gillard and the Labour/Greens coalission have refused the peoples Referendum to vote. They are demonstranting to the people that they are a TYRANNICAL GOVERNMENT and the people are their SLAVES to obey any oppressive legislation which the government imposes.
    The National Convey is our chance to demonstrate to the government that they were elected to Represent us and not enslave us.
    It is a LAWFUL REBELLION of the Australian PEOPLE. If we want any chance of reclaiming our Democratic Rights and Freedoms which are being denied to us we now have the opportunity to do it.
    If we continue living the life of SHEEPLE we will lose more of our rights and freedoms which will continue until we have none.

    Rise like Lions after slumber, In unvanquishable number. Shake your chains to earth like dew, which in sleep had fallen on you.
    We, the people, are many and they, the government, are few. – Quote by Percy Bysshe Shelley.

    When tyranny becomes law, lawful rebellion becomes duty!

    The National Convey to Canberra is a step in the right direction to remind all our politicians and governments that Australia is a Democratic Country and in a Democracy the people rule. Therefore when we the people elect them they are elected to serve us so we are their employer, our taxes pay their wages and we expect our taxes to be used to benefit all Australian people. We don’t expect nor give our permission of billions of our tax-payments being wasted on advertising campaigns or donations to foreign powers and corporations as is now occurring.
    Our future and the future of our children, grandchildren and the future for generations of Australians are relying on us, therefore we all have a duty of care for our families and each other and the future of Australia to get involved.

    For evil to prosper, only takes that good men and women do nothing!

    Note also that the big banks and Wall St are behind this tax.The CEO of the NAB had openly backed it.They want another derivative to screw the masses.As if the sub-prime mortgage debacle wasn’t enough?

    The really big issue in my view is reform of the financial system. See ‘The secret of Oz ‘ by Bill Still.It won the Biff International Award for best documentary. You sense that you are being robbed blind.This will tell you how.

    Sounds like a great idea Jennifer, an enterprising soul could set up a stall selling drinks and the ubiquitous sausage sangers.

    $50 return trip by bus is dirt cheap.If you don’t stand up now it will be too late because the Senate will veto any changes even if Abbott gets in.With another share market crash things will only get worse if we don’t have the courage to stand up to tyranny.

    Those occupying seats in Canberra should remember they are our employees. As employers, we have the right to sack them if they don’t take notice. Pity the aircraft refuelers couldn’t join in so the polies can’t sneak out of Canberra. I would suggest the road to the airport also has a gathering. One question, how long are we staying in Canberra as a gathering?

    You try it mate. You need a licence from the Federal Govt. An environmental impact statement, a 12 month consultation period, a degree in food handling safety, a local Govt permit to set up a BBQ, an ABN number (because you are not selling a fresh product), approved OH&S safety clothes, submit a DA to put a sign on the roadside, etc etc. and this is just for the sangers. We won’t mention the drinks.

    My father worked so hard on the railway line out north, voted labour but would be spinning in his grave to see what is happening to Australia today. Thought government was voted in to work towards the peoples wishes, sending industry off shore is wrong keep it here in Australia to employ our children. We will be slaves to overseas ownership, while our politicians smile into cameras.

    Labor has lost it’s so called ‘Light on the Hill’.’ A party that allows Emily’s List to function under it’s covering is up the creek. Abortion to the last week is despicable and thats what Emily’s List is about. Money given to propel woman into parliament to vote on so called women’s issues is blood money. It’s sad that a lot of Labor’s women have accepted this money to help fund themselves into parliament. They vote as a block and if they don’t vote along Emily’s List lines they lose the money. I thought Labor’s women had more nouse than that.
    Same sex relationships called marriage? They have lost touch with the average aussie battler. Carbon tax, come on, can you afford it? They couldn’t manage the pink batts or the education revolution, will they be able to manage this?
    As for our industries, no wonder big companies like QANTAS are leaving for better pastures. The carry ons about federal payment of chaplains is a farce. The ‘family man’ challenging this in the high court doesn’t fool anyone. I’d love the media to explore who is behind this man.
    I don’t listen to the ABC radio anymore, it makes me sad about what is happening in parliament, we need decent pollies that have an eye on what’s best for us. I’m tired of seeing their agendas get all the attention, not what is good for Australia.
