Would you trust your teenager with the budget?
Maybe they should increase the voting age, along with anything else that requires some level of intelligence and responsibility to 21. As the next generation’s ability to think for themselves decreases, so a corresponding increase in voting age should be sought.
“I’ve been meeting with colleagues across the parliament to discuss allowing 16 and 17 year olds the right to vote, to have their say in the decisions made about their future."
So this is how this Teal spends her time at the expense of hard working tax-payers???! What an absolute waste of space these bureaucrats are!
They say, 'Let's brainwash the children with radical leftist ideologies at the tax-payer's expense, under the guise of 'education', then, while they are still at that vulnerable, impressionable age, before they have properly learnt how to use their brain, let's strike while the iron is hot, by getting them to vote!!'
These Teals are fools who have not yet grown up themselves, because, like 16 year olds, they have spent their entire lives living at the expense of others!! They should be ashamed of themselves.
I think the voting age should be lowered to 7 years old. My 7 year old son when he is calm and thoughtful is much smarter, more thoughtful and is more perceptive than Dr Ryan. She may be smart enough to be a Dr but has shown herself to be totally ignorant , foolish and gullible. Lenin in the USSR as he began his program to murder more than 65 million people would have called her a useful idiot. Useful to her rich sponsor. Sadly our country is now largely run by such empty headed and ignorant people.
This is merely another means whereby teals steal elections. The democrats use illegal immigrants and free money in the US for the same purpose. When teenagers get free money from their parents, it is called an allowance. In the US when immigrants are given free money it goes under a general budget heading called "entitlements". All of this should rightly be placed under the category, "Means and Methods Used to Facilitate the Decline and Fall of Western Civilization".
Thank you for your insightful and succinct perspective of many topics. You have obviously given much forensic research into the topics. A voice to be listened to.
I say Up the age to 25 and over!!
You're on a roll, James or should that be on the honour roll of logic. Why not lower the age to preschool- to fit the similar cognitive equivalent of teal/ greens policies?
They stuffed the whole schooling system up years ago to go inline with American mid term holidays, so now you have kids in year 12 that are old enough to be driving and nightclubbing, children mixed classes ie year 5’s and 6’s
Thing is in America you have to be 21 to drink.
When people actually have a real job not school kids relying on handouts, accommodation and transport from mum and dad.
Why stop at 16 years of age? From birth would be more in line with these jackasses’ mentality. What do these teals use for a brain?
Who gives a flying frapdoodle what either the Teals or teenagers want?
This is a Teal strategy based on stats they know that their supposed action on climate change was their big election promise which is something that the Teals can never do...that’s right it was a pie in the sky fable and many bought it....why?? Because the climate change ideology has flooded high school. The net zero mantra is now a major part of the new junior science curriculum..the idea being that humans should protect the planet from carbon dioxide emissions is a complete nonsense. All plant life needs carbon dioxide for photosynthesis and all humans and animal life produce carbon dioxide during respiration and most things which are burnt which includes natural bushfires creates carbon dioxide and all the oceans absorb carbon dioxide...and we have no way of controlling what our heavily populated neighbouring burn. China...India who cares?? As you can see this pie in the sky rubbish is something that we can never do..,control global climate change....it’s almost cultish...first it was about never ending droughts...then never ending bushfires and now never ending floods and if there is a cyclone...guess what?....save us from disaster help...save us from the climate change apocalypse...and of course the real clincher is that to control carbon emissions we must all live with power rationing or sky high power prices or spend about $10,000 to retrofit our house to gain solar energy during the daytime...and of course spend another $10000 or more to get battery which is a really inefficient way to store energy...because changing the power and energy market is the net change that will happen and guess who is invested in that?...the elites that have created the Teals...right! you see I told you it was a strategy about stats. Using the youth to gain profits! It’s all about net zero coal and gas power use...they have fooled too many!
"Give me a child up to the age of 7 and I will show you the man." (Aristotle) Today we hope that when reality hits they will stop believing the lies their teachers told them.
Does this mean they can stand as a candidate?
They have totally indoctrinated these children with their fear porn lies to make them think that we are all going to die if we don't shut down our industries and the economy to reduce CO2 and now methane emissions to destroy our farms. This will only make the rich richer and the rest broke.
Children take their parents and teachers literally when they tell them something. Later they find that Santa has been dead for 1679 years and historically his name was Bishop Nicolas of Myra when it was part of Greece, but now it is in Turkey. He lived from 270 to 343 AD.
When these children get to the age of 25 and their brains are fully grown, but probably they have plenty more to learn, they may find the truth about ACC, i.e. it was invented by an economist to raise taxes on the masses and has been used by the Communists to destroy the economies of the west.
I would like to see the voting age increased to at least 25 and to have people pass a test on their knowledge of politics and history in Australia before they qualify to be able to vote. I would also only allow those who pay taxes or are retired to be able to vote. Of course those with dementia would not be able to pass that test, so it would not allow Labor to run around the aged care homes to collect votes that they have filled in for them without their understanding. Dead people should also be removed from the rolls as they all vote Labor after voting LNP all their lives. Those who are caught cheating should be removed from the voting rolls permanently as traitors to democracy. Perhaps a jail term might be included and inability to hold political office.
I think party names should be given to them according to their policies, not chosen by themselves, but by an unbiased and historically informed group. The Greens are really Communists. If they want to choose a colour it should be red. The Teals are really working for the elites who have the money and control the MSM. They should be called the big business party.
As Independents, Greens and Teals steal votes from the unsuspecting and channel them through to Labor. I think it is time we stopped this voting system and had simple first past the post ID voluntary voting with both parties able to watch the vote counting. Money is another problem, especially with each union able to spend to the limit. It is time to stop all campaign spending and only allow town hall Q&As with all candidates given equal time without interruption from either their opponents or the audience. No more "Red shirts" or bully police force supporting government narratives paid by our taxes. Free speech for all.
How about the Teals concentrate on serious issues like running the country. Cost of living, cheap power, proper education, like rrrrrrr the 3Rs including science. Biology would be an excellent start etc. Is that really the best they can do. God help us. Although I thing He has given the west over to there desires.
The devil’s workmen, err, workpersons.
If the voting age is lowered to 16 then that has to make then adults doesn't it? If that is the case, then they should be subject to the law of the land pertaining to adults and a 16 year old criminal can be thrown into jail, instead of given a talking to and being let loose. Maybe the voting age should be lowered to 5 year olds!!! We are living in a country run by people of that mentality
It's the same ridiculous drive to open the voting pool up to as many emotionally unstable, impulsive, politically and financially illiterate voters as they can over here in Ardernistan (the previously pleasant nation known as New Zealand)... because of, you know, 'human rights violations'.
Of course, it's that well worn, broken record to which no one is allowed to object, because who is FOR human rights violations right?
We all know the reasons and it's got nothing to do with human rights. It's all about getting that sector of society who is a captive audience to leftist ideology, climate change cultism, gender fluidity brainwashing and socialist inculcation within the overtly leftist state education system to cast their entirely impartial and well considered vote.
Heck, if it's a human rights violation to prevent a 16 year to vote, 'let OUR voices be heard' I hear the 5 - 12 year olds who are currently being given the bodily autonomy to decide their gender and, in some countries, choose 'death with dignity'. I mean, if we're running with the lunacy of 'mature minors' making the choice to mutilate their bodies, take life changing hormone therapies and sign up for assisted suicide, then honestly what right do we have to deny them the vote?
The decline and rapid implosion of the West and the world in general is now being played out on an hourly basis and anyone who's not on board is being singled out as a far right, nazi loving, bigoted, hate-speech-spewing, conservative, terrorist.
Can't wait to see what the future of a country looks like when being governed by the choices of a cohort who are focused on their Tik Tok and Instagram accounts, who struggle getting out of bed before midday and doing chores round the house and have spent years being influenced by Drag Queen story hour while also thinking that men really can have periods and give birth.
Sowing and reaping... sowing and reaping.
