  • Legalise medicinal Cannabis Oil use within Australia
    I have a few friends with cancer, of varying types, and I really want to give them another option than Chemotherapy or Radiotherapy, which is very invasive and damaging to the body. I have done a bit of study around cancer and what it really is (a mutation of healthy cells within the body) and there has to be other ways of treating it other than killing off everything.

  • Increase Debt Levy to 10%
    Rather than cut essential services to the bone, the Commonwealth government clearly needs to raise more revenues and the most efficient is through income tax. The GST is very inefficient to collect and affects the poor worst. In a caring society which is aging, we need to accept that the cost of support for the aged will inevitably rise; we cannot just ignore them. Also the economic progress of our nation depends on having a well educated population. The government needs to show a caring attitude as this is essential to create a caring society as a whole. The quality of life in Australia depends on it.

  • Reduce retirement age to 65 NOT increase to 70!
    It gives younger people more options to work and earn. I think by the time you have worked to 60 you have contributed sufficiently to society and you should have the option of retirement! If you want to continue working you should have the option. Let's bring the retirement age back to 65 and ideally it should be reduced to 60. Please don't let any government whittle away at Australia's benefits anymore.

  • reopen 74 vacant beds at Glenmead Village Aged Care Facility
    There are presently 72 patients housed in hospitals around the region awaiting placement in an aged care facility. This does not take into account the fact that there are many people barely able to cope in their own homes. THis not only crowds the hospitals it is not a suitable place for aged people to live and it will only get worse as our aged population increases.

  • Stop another stolen generation!
    We've already seen the terrible results of the stolen generation, we can't let this keep happening and we can't let our government "apologise" but keep on doing exactly the same thing. We are already spending millions to take the children away, why can't that money be used to help these families stay together and be more functional.

  • Don't give Tony Abbott the Senate
    The WA Senate election is a chance to keep the Senate out of Tony Abbott's control. By preferencing the Greens last Labor will hand the Senate to Tony Abbott. We need Labor to protect us from the ravages of an Abbott government.

  • Keep Heritage listings on Tasmanian forests.
    The world is running out of forests at an alarming rate. Forests are the lungs, the water filters of the world. Human technology simply cannot do all that the natural world does for us. They make the world a richer place simply by their existence. Tasmanian forests house some of our rarest animals. Australia is not a lucky country, we are just a new country, continue down our current path and soon we will not be so lucky.

  • Don't Undermine Closing the Gap For Aboriginal people by cutting funding to vital programs
    I have worked in education and training in the city and the country for 35 years. The Closing the Gap policy in Health and Education between Aboriginal people and the rest of Australia is a sign of hope and Government and community commitment to our Indigenous people. Cutting already very effective Indigenous community support programs in Health and Education will widen the gap, not close it. This breaks my heart.
