Company taxes are destroyed and taxes to compensate continue to climb. Services spiral down in education and health services have to be cut to protect the revenue. Let’s protect the Australian people and their jobs. Let’s protect what the country stands for. If government stopped driving business to the wall, this wouldn’t happen. Australia needs to restructure the system; to keep people employed productively. To transfer people from gainful employment to unemployment just guarantees misery for all Australians. We need to have a Chapter 11 like they have in the US. When companies fail the business continues so workers keep their jobs and their families have income. As government services continue to break down and Australia heads towards a catastrophe, we think we’re helpless and cannot do anything about it. But Australians can. We must provide more funding to education in this country. A free nation can rise no higher than the standard of excellence set in its schools and colleges.

Ignorance, illiteracy, unskilled workers and school drop outs - these are the failures of an educational system in the past; a system that breeds failures in our social and economic set up, such as delinquency, unemployment, chronic dependency, a waste of human resources, a loss of productive power and purchasing, and an increase of tax-supported benefits. The loss of only one year’s income due to unemployment is more than the total cost of twelve years’ education through high school. Failure to improve our education performance is not only poor social policy, it is poor economic policy. At the start of the last century, only 10% of our adults had a high school or university education. Today, such an education has become a requirement for an increasing number of jobs. Our aim is to inject an extra $20 billion into the education system in our first three years of government. It’s time to invest in ourselves. If we don’t have confidence in ourselves, who will have confidence in us? We must educate our children, our most valuable resource. We must make it possible for those with talent to go to university, but only if those who are educated can find a job.
