Australian Seniors Party - ASP

Hi Fellow Seniors or soon to be Seniors,


Not my words in most of the following ‘blue section’ but they struck a chord with me, although I have softened some of the more extreme rhetoric!   I’m not a Labour supporter but I believe passionately in a caring and supportive Government and a strong Social Services safety net.   I even believe the principal of Unionism well applied can serve the needs of workers.   I’m not a Greenie but I’m passionate about respecting, protecting, caring for and restoring our natural environment.   I am a Liberal voter but I do believe they are just as capable of stupidity and unfairness as any other Government.


Australia, regardless of its extreme wealth and resources, seems to be going rapidly down the philosophical/cultural/community gurgler!!!  


Fancy us borrowing money to give 'Aid' to a country which is run by a bunch of lunatics who have nuclear bombs ready to use on a peaceful democratic neighbour.

We are getting a crippling energy tax, and are likely to wipe out or lock out our coal, gas and petroleum reserves.   Yet even though we are amongst the world’s richest sources of uranium, we can't have nuclear power either because the Greens control the Senate.

Meanwhile many pensioners are terrified to have a hot shower or turn on a heater because they can’t pay their power bill.  Note as from July 1 electricity up 21% in some States!  


Wake up Australia we need a SENIOR'S PARTY to kick out that bunch of ‘Politically Correct Bastards’ who run our country from a narrow minded perspective.  Let's set up a SENIOR'S PARTY (RH comment: or at least a coordinated lobby group).

Maybe Dick Smith or someone with $$$ and balls will take up the idea.  Can anyone take up the cause of preserving what is good and just about our fantastic Australia?   Most of you will have put
 inclose to 50 tax returns by the time you retire and isn't it time we got a little bit of a fair go for paying our taxes and making Australia the great country it is today.

The labour movement has extinguished the ‘Light on the Hill’ and the Liberals disappoint middle class Aussies as they make up policies on the run, the Greens live in la-la land and the Democrats are kaput.   Come on AUSSIE SENIORS we have a bloody massive numbers advantage...let’s start using it.

Remember the $20,000,000 Penny Wong couldn't possibly find in the budget to pay back the troops to compensate for the Government swindle on DFRDB (Defence Force Retirement and Death Benefit fund)?  Now $20,000,000 will miraculously appear to cover the 'Snouts in the Trough' pollies for their meagre pay rise. What a joke.  Oh, and she has just announced $11 Billion (which we'll have to borrow) to prop up the Euro.  How stupid is this Government without a mandate whose members were NEVER in a creative job prior to entering Parliament.

We are 'broke' and can't help our own Seniors, Troops, Orphans or Homeless, however, in the last month we have provided aid to Haiti, Indonesia, Timor, Turkey, Greece & Pakistan.  Our Aged Pensioners living on a 'fixed income' receive no aid or get any breaks whilst our Government pours hundreds of millions of $$$$$$'s and tons of food into Foreign Countries!

AUSTRALIA is a country where we have homeless without shelter, children and adults going to bed hungry, elderly going without 'necessary' medication and mentally ill going without treatment.


They are requesting donations for the people of Pakistan, a country currently buying fighter planes worth $1.4 billion, TV stations, ships & planes and we are lining up with food, water, tents, clothes, bedding, doctors and medical supplies.   Imagine if the Government gave us the same support they give to other countries.  Sad, isn't it?


I’m not saying there isn’t a place and good reason for foreign aid, especially if it’s not just for political expediency, but how about we spread a bit more of the largesse around our own community.

Many people won't forward this email.   I however just did!
