A: I don't think we are meant to debate others ideas.

B: It's almost all long term stuff that will cost big money, yes the big budget items cost a lot in the short term but if it works it will bring in money long term. If the Australian government and Australian business comes up with more patentable ideas like Wifi (which was invented by the CSIRO and brought in around half a billion dollars) then it will bring money into the country. Australia can't export physical goods to make money anymore, it needs an IP (intellectual property) based economy. To do that you need to educate the young, which means you need better schools, universities and internet. You also need to ditch fossil fuels because it's been scientifically proven that living near a coal fired power plant (and likely other carbon producing things like cars) both impacts physical health and intelligence, not to mention it causes climate change. Also solar and wind energy is cheaper than coal so it solves the issue of rising power cost.

A party that will stick its neck out for the best ideas and NOT just ones to help it get re-elected.

A party that will not sabotage or rebrand good ideas just because another party thought of it.

A party that will answer (not avoid) questions put to it clearly without padding or bad mouthing others.

A party that is transparent about donations and anything attempting to influence it.

I will call this political force.. 'A Party! (that will never exist)'

I seriously want to run for PM! If trump can do it....

Some of my policies...

Enclosure laws
- Enclosures would be determined on
- - size of animal
- - number of animals
- - natural habitat of animals.
The purpose being to outlaw tiny fish tanks for fighting fish. They need bigger tanks. No birds in small cages. Larger animals requiring more space. No farm animals in cramped conditions. Affecting everyone from zoos circus farmers households.

Tax on the rich
- They keep taxing the poor and not themselves. Corporate tax included. Any business not paying their fare share of tax will be excluded from operating in Aus. Companies giving themselves loans will no longer be included when determine tax.

Descrimination Policy
- Getting real in regards to business, companies, religion, organisations etc

Gay Marriage
- Making it legal OR
- Removing the world marriage altogether for the religous to use for themselves, and creating a new word in the constituion / legal matters.

Euthenasia to be legal. If we can be humane towards animals we can surley do the same for us humans.

End double dipping for pollies.
- You may retire on the minister pension but if you work, you loose the pension. Also reduce the pension from 300,000 per year to 100,000 per year.

I have many ideas! Vote for my Party in the next elecation
