When any politician utters the word BILLION…

Just take a few moments to ponder what has been said. The word BILLION roles off their tongues so easily. And we the constituents just suck it up.

If you are given $1 billion and you stand on a street corner handing out $1 per second, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, you would still not have handed out $1 billion after 31 years.

Now read on:

The next time you hear a politician use the word ‘billion’ casually, think about whether you want the ‘politicians’ of today spending OUR tax money.

A billion is a difficult number to comprehend, but some brilliant person did a good job of putting that figure into real perspective:

  1. A billion seconds ago it was 1959.
  2. A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive.
  3. A billion hours ago our ancestors were living in the Stone Age.
  4. A billion days ago no-one walked on the earth on two feet.
  5. A billion dollars ago was only 13 hours and 12 minutes, at the rate our government is spending your taxes which is money raised by:

Stamp Duty

Tobacco Tax

Corporate Income Tax

Personal Income Tax

Council Rates

Unemployment Tax

Fishing Licence Tax

Petrol/Diesel Tax

Alcohol Tax


Property Tax

Service Charge Levies

Medicare Levy

Vehicle Licence/ Registration Tax

Vehicle Sales Tax

Workers Compensation Tax

Fire Brigade Levy

Rubbish Removal Levy

Carbon Dioxide Tax (coming soon)

Hardly any of these taxes existed 70 years ago and our country was one of the most prosperous in the world. We had absolutely no national debt and we had the largest middle class in the world. A criminal’s life was uncomfortable.

What Happened?

‘Political Correctness and ‘Politicians’ and a selfish, self-important, everyone a victim population cocooned in a great big Nanny state, where it is always someone else’s fault.  Personal responsibility has given way to the decree by the State, whether it is what we say, what we eat, what we drink, what we think.  Any contrary opinion is banned and so-called “de-platformed” whatever that means.

This is what has happened!
