EDITORIAL June issue: What Australia do we want?
The coalition government challenged expectations and media campaigns to achieve a historic victory. Prime Minister Scott Morrison is a man of big faith. He is concerned about family and Australia. Hard-working man and capable, he deserves much credit because he ran a campaign in full confidence that he could win _ and he did.
Australia is going through a tough time. We are constantly hearing in the media that politicians are being caught out doing the wrong thing. With every election we are given promises of a glorious future, but the reality is too many promises are broken. It is obvious that politicians put their self-interests ahead of what is good for Australia. The major parties are not meeting the needs of the entire nation.
The cost of living has created a working poor. Young families are unable to enter the housing market due to escalating prices. Medical insurance is now out of reach to many families. Is this the Australia we want?
The youth of Australia are not being given the opportunities that their parents and grandparents had. A multi-generational class of unemployed has created a bleak future for too many young Australians dependant on welfare and some who develop antisocial behaviour. The solution to this would easily be fixed if the Australian Government toughened up and made it mandatory for young unemployed people to join the armed services. If nothing else, it will teach young people respect and give purpose to their lives. This is a much better option than having unemployed youth roam the streets and shopping malls out of boredom. Boredom leads to mischief that can lead to a troubled life.
We are also seeing antisocial behaviour with the children of recent refugees and immigrants. Culturally they come from an environment that has tough laws. In Australia there is too much freedom with less power for law enforcement. The result is that we are seeing antisocial behaviour and criminal activities. We know that this is a minority but a problem that all of Australia endures and we all pay for.
Too much attention is given to the demands of trouble makers who want to make change that is not in the best interest of Australia’s future and does not always reflect the respect for the law. This is a growing concern.
Australia needs a government that is prepared to make the tough choices for the future and survival of the Australian way of life that that only a few decades ago offered so much prosperity.
Scott Morrison already a highly committed person will lead the Liberal Party into further achievements for the interest of the country through his strong efforts and dedication.
His optimistic vision is a great benefit to Australia and the world.
