Democracy is dead in Australia, replaced by totalitarianism.

“There will be no carbon tax under a government I lead,” pledged Julia Gillard before the federal election in 2010. Now we have this tax by the government she leads. The issue with me and many other Australians is not so much whether or not we have this tax; the issue is that the Australian people have been lied to. My mother used to say:” Once a liar always a liar.”Werner

Here is a message from Timothy Andrews, Managing Editor of Menzies House.

Four thousand, five hundred Australians have just been censored by the Gillard -Brown regime.

I thought I had seen everything. I thought after all the attacks on freedom of speech I have written to you about before, that nothing could surprise me.I was wrong.

In a shocking and historically unprecedented suppression of political expression and abuse of democracy, 4,500 Aussies - all opposed to this unnecessary and destructive tax on carbon dioxide - have just been told that they don't count. That their opinions don't matter. That their thoughts are not allowed to be heard.

The background: As you will remember, last month, the Joint Select Committee on Australia's Clean Energy Future Legislation asked for submissions about the carbon dioxide tax legislation. They specifically stated that they "encourage submissions to its inquiry from a wide range of individuals and organisations". There were no other terms of reference.

Although they only gave us one week, four thousand five hundred of us took the time to write to the committee. Four thousand five hundred Australians took the time to read the over 1000 page legislation. Four thousand five hundred Australians wrote in depth submissions detailing the flaws in this proposed legislation.
 
We have now discovered that their work was suppressed. They have been silenced. Will be censored and stripped from the record without a trace.

NEVER IN THE HISTORY OF THE AUSTRALIAN PARLIAMENT HAS THIS OCCURED.

An Australian Parliamentary Committee has NEVER BEFORE censored submissions to this extent. Nothing has come even close. Ever. There is NO historical precedent for such a mass rejection of submissions.

To rub salt into the wound, the Government was more than happy to accept earlier submissions in favour of the tax that were just two sentences saying, for example, “I am writing to express my support for the government to legislate to put a price on carbon. I urge the government to
move ahead with the Carbon Tax.”

Yet lengthy, in-depth submissions opposing the tax on carbon dioxide have been rejected and stripped from the record.

Julia Gillard and Bob Brown have just officially stuck up their middle finger at us and told us that we don't count.

Don't let them get away with it! 
Contact as many newspapers, TV stations, Radio Channels, Bloggers as you can and spread the word! (There is a good list of media contacts here http://www.ourcommunity.com.au/ you can start with) -  and don't just e-mail! Phone, fax, and write letters to the editor about!  We MUST get the word out!

Also, forward this to all your family and friends, share this with your facebook friends: and then post it on twitter:

Do anything you can to spread the word about this disgraceful abuse of democracy and silencing of Australians by the Gillard-Brown Government.

There is only ONE reason why the Gillard-Brown Government is trying to silence us: they know that we are right and are scared to engage in debate.
Let's not let them get away with it.

Werner, what your mother said: “Once a liar always a liar,” is dead right. And there is no doubt that we are governed by a totalitarian regime, which totally ignores its people and does whatever it likes. Wake up Australians; vote for people at the next election that will listen to you and does not allow to sell our farm land to foreign countries..

True Blue Aussie - pray tell me who the hell do we vote for? None of the pliticians can "lie straight in bed" these days - and it doesn't matter what Party they belong to - I'm sure that Werner will support this statement?

I have a suggestion:

He never got the chance to do it again!

There is nothing that will save the clowns that run our national government and the ones who helped to get this carbon tax legislation through at the next election. They will be annihilated – you better start looking for jobs. I wouldn’t be surprised if this mob would introduce a flatulence or a bullshit tax, the latter would produce a lot of revenue from the Australian Parliament alone.

Thank you Werner for bringing this to my attention.
For anyone else like me, who wants to know where the number of 4500 came from, or other detail, you may wish to visit http://www.aph.gov.au/house/committee/jscacefl/report/Coalition.pdf

Who knows what other parts of the Greens' agenda will now implement? Is it overstating things to say that Australia is being held to ransom by a handful of ideologues who want to transform our country into their version of an eco-social utopia?

Totalitarianism is absolutely fitting for this Gillard government who tells the majority of Australians literally “go to hell”I’m right and you are wrong and I know what is best for you. Hitler and Stalin worked the same way. Our politicians are ruining this country, they allow foreign countries to buy are food producing agricultural land, allow gas fracking and poisoning our underground water.

The state bastards poison our water with silicofluoride a waste product from the Chinese fertiliser and aluminium industries. They pay the Chines big money for this stuff and the cost is passed on to the rate payers, yet China prohibits water fluoridation because of health concerns. Yet our state governments have no concern whatsoever, and ignore the latest scientific research and use our drinking water system to dispose of China’s toxic waste. What imbeciles of politicians we have got – God help us, we mere mortal are just treated as fools.
