There is no oppression in Australia.

There is no crime perpetrated against aboriginal Australians, as activists and rent seekers claim.

Quite the opposite.

There is equal opportunity for all regardless of heritage, race, religion, gender, culture etc.

This is enshrined in our anti-discrimination laws.

There is great support and fondness for genuine aboriginals as opposed to the elite, white activists passing off as aboriginals, some of whom are architects of the Uluru Statement.

Tens of billions of dollars are already spent each year on aboriginal welfare and causes by hard working non-aboriginal taxpayers.

I’m from a migrant family.

My father left his war-torn country to come to Australia at age 20, on his own, without knowing anybody or having any connections, like so many migrants from all over the globe.

He left school at age 14 due to the war. So unskilled and uneducated, in a foreign land, unable to speak the language.

He started work as a labourer and worked his way to a manager, then own business, then employer of 200 men.

He bought a weekend farm and built ‘flats’ (apartments) with some partners on weekends while continuing to work 12 hours a day Monday-Friday. He was not unique. Many other migrants did the same.

He was no self-imposed ‘victim’.

However, he was a truly displaced person.

No family, no support welfare, no self-pity, no handout.

Just a desire to better himself through hard work and contributing to the community. He married at age 30, started a family with his young bride, raised six children, self-funded all our education at a Catholic school.

After retirement, he built a retirement home for others and continued to serve the community through charitable activities, raising money and helping others.

He was not alone and not unique. He was forever a humble, grateful man.

When he died, I was stunned to see the local cathedral packed to over capacity with hundreds in attendance, out to the streets.

All for a modest migrant who came to Australia with nothing but worked to make a life for himself.

He was no oppressor of indigenous Australians and neither are the millions who came before or after him.

Many in perpetual ‘victim-mode’ would do well to adopt the same mindset of my father and the many like him.

They and their type will be the better for it.

Activists like to say our indigenous aboriginals are the most ‘incarcerated people on earth’.

My answer to that is, if you don’t want to do the time, do not do the crime.

Take Alice Springs, for example.

While hardworking Australians are trying to run an honest business in town, and to reside in their homes, they are perpetually under attack from aboriginal criminals, ransacking their stores, smashing glass, roaming the streets, rioting, looting, abusing and vandalising.

These are the decisions and actions of the individual, not the true victim.

Yet the victim is somehow blamed by rent-seeking activists.

Here’s a novel thought, perhaps ‘the most incarcerated (criminals) on earth’ should cease committing crimes.

We also hear that indigenous Australians come from the most dysfunctional families.

Why is that?

When you have easy welfare (funded by those you hate), you do not have a purpose or direction each day.

When you have no self-worth or value because you do not contribute to your community, but instead you take, take, take, filling in your aimless, worthless life is a downward spiral to self-loathing, crime, alcoholism, petrol sniffing and vandalism.

It also leads to a dysfunctional home life as well as spousal and child sexual abuse. This has been the case for decades and has been reported in multiple Productivity Reports.

Voting for Voice will not change anything except to divide Australia. We already know what the source of the problems are without a ‘Voice’.

Jacinta Price articulates this well when she states so simply, “We need ears, not a voice!”

Voting for a Voice will only funnel more power and money to Albanese’s elitist mates, who are of mostly white heritage, of radical communist background yet are masquerading as aboriginal.

Voting for a Voice will destroy the fabric of this country.

What a Yes vote will guarantee is a path to ‘reparations’.

Taxpayers will be forced to pay ‘reparations’ to Indigenous Australians for “past, present and future criminal acts” under a proposed treaty, with suggestions that “a fixed percentage” of GDP be handed over through “rates, land tax and royalties”.

This has been revealed through documents released under freedom of information.

This amounts to further tens of billions of dollars annually on top of the $40 billion each year they already receive.

Today, there are people from over 130 countries and cultures in Australia.

No non-aboriginal person has done anything to people they don’t know or have never met from decades or centuries ago, to warrant more of their hard-earned tax money to be paid to ‘reparations”.

I’m voting NO in honour of my father’s memory, the millions of Australians like him and for my children’s future.
