MAY THE FARCE NOT BE WITH YOU
From George Santayana, 1905: 'Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.' -- Life of Reason, Reason in Common Sense.
Thus the reason why Malcolm Turnbull and Mr. "I'll please everyone" (Joe Hockey) lost the battle for control of the Liberal party and the chance to give Chairman Rudd his big bragging rights at Copenhagen.
The man who didn't forget the lessons of the past, Tony Abbott, was a man who remembered just what happened to one of his previous bosses, former Liberal Party leader, Dr. John Hewson, when he tried to introduce an unexplained tax on the people and as a result the country got P.J.Keating as the PM.
I do really get the feeling that the common man and woman is starting to not only see through the ALP spin and rhetoric in general but that they are waking up to the fact that Anthropogenic Global Warming is just as fantastic a fraud as any other global con pushed on mankind in recent times. From the great and dangerous hole in the Earth's ozone layer to the Zionist conspiracy to take over the world and who could forget when the world that was going to end at the stroke of midnight, December 31 1999 due to the Millennium Bug!
What Tony Abbott, and Senator Nick Minchin have done, guided by the lead of Senator Barnaby Joyce of the Nationals and Liberal Senator Cory Bernardi, ranks as one of the bravest moments in Australian political history, and really, when was the last time you heard of an Australian politician actually thinking of the welfare of the nation before their own political careers?
The growing rise of the Conservative movement will mark the beginning of the end for the Socialists and the fight has just began. Abbott has promised that -- so sit back folks and witness democracy in action.
