I want a government that governs for 23 million Australians.

Not for some greedy, aging expatriate billionaire who looks at his country of birth as nothing more than a profit centre.

Not for some disgustingly rich mining mogul who wants workers to be paid $2 an hour.

Not for an Indian mining billionaire that nobody has ever heard of who wants to tear up our heritage-listed treasures.

Not for the Church.

Not for American corporations who want to take away our ‘freedom’ once the TPP is signed.

Not for the Australians who believe they are born into entitlement.

Not for the mining companies who want not only to take traditional lands away from the first Australians but destroy all that is sacred in those lands.

Not for those families who have a salary of $250,000 or more.

Not for some outdated public policy think-tank.

Not for the minority of Australians who will vote for the Coalition because the boats have (allegedly) stopped.

Not for those Australians who will hide under the bed whenever Tony Abbott waves a flag.

Not for those Australians who won’t open their arms or their hearts to people in need.

Not for the shock jocks who think that their opinion is public opinion.

Oh how I could go on.

No, I want a government that governs for 23 million Australians. At best, the current government falls short by about 20 million.
