Belly Says Itís Time
Never will there be a better time to change this federal goverment.
My idea to have every unionist who will contribute to fund every marginal seat in the next election is not getting of the ground.
They will not contribute I am told, well they will, if we ask!
5,000 Australians each giving just $10 a month could flood every ALP marginal seat with money to fight this election.
It will take a group such as labor council to make it work.
My money will come up front even if it puts me on home brew for a month.
We are duty bound to fight Howard to a standstill to protect unionism and workers rights.
Just one complaint, Why do we not even have candedates in some marjinals yet? like Paterson? any plan to win the election after next is betrayal of Australia,s workers.
any one help start this? we must have total trust every dollar funds a seat.
