The WA budget is in trouble, with a big deficit and mounting debt. But there is disagreement about how to fix it. The Liberals have raised the possibility of
selling assets, such as Western Power. Labor opposes this.
Now Pauline Hanson says One Nation won’t agree to asset sales. She says, anything that
belongs to the people, belongs to the people. Karl Marx would agree. In the Communist Manifesto,
he defined communism as social ownership. That is, ownership by the people.
Governments used to own Telstra, Qantas, the Commonwealth Bank, CSL, Medibank and a lot
more. In Queensland, the government even used to own the butchers shops.
Who would want those businesses to go back to being owned by the government?
The Liberal Democrats disagree with Karl Marx and Pauline Hanson. We think the government
doesn’t need to own things. In fact, the less it owns, the better off we all are.
Due to preferences, a vote for the Liberals is a vote for One Nation. And for Karl Marx. Vote for the Liberal Democrats instead.
