I do not advocate to remove Australia's system of governance, but it's improvement. Our government has been a very successful and stable system that many countries look to us in envy. The Australian Republicans however, have the intent to remove this system of governance over selfish and ideological reasons. Whilst failing to provide a viable … Continue reading An Independent Australian Monarchy
Monarchy; one of the most lambasted and caricatured forms of government. Ask a liberal or your run-of-the-mill socialist or even an anarchist, they will say that the reason that monarchy is the worst form of government is that it is no different than any other dictatorship and that it is somehow inherently tyrannical. I even … Continue reading On Monarchy

Republicans are quite a nonsensical bunch no matter where in the world you find them and those infecting the great Commonwealth of Australia are certainly no different. Their arguments are so full of holes and lack any credibility to such a great extent that they have been so far unsuccessful in their treasonous efforts in … Continue reading Arguing with Australian Republicans
