· Does Government have the competence to fix the voting systems?
· The Joint Standing Committee on Electoral Matters (JSCEM) has failed
· “Vote Early, Vote Often” frauds can continue, unaffected by this report
The report of the JSCEM released on 15 April touched on some longstanding faults in our electoral system, while tackling few of the major issues that need fixing.
“There are some long-running sores that seem to have been avoided by the Joint Committee in its 216-page report, after conducting 21 public hearings and receiving 216 written submissions, including four from this organisation, Australians for Honest Elections”, said AFHE President Lex Stewart.
Our website http://www.afhe.org.au/our-recommendations.html lists in approximate priority order 9 major recommendations to overcome deficiencies in our electoral systems. The JSCEM report has addressed only items 3 and 8 out of our 9.
AFHE President Lex Stewart says, “While we commend the JSCEM in making its recommendation 17 for identity before a person is allowed to vote in person (like the Queensland ID introduced a year ago, which the current ALP government is about to remove), the JSCEM has avoided addressing major issues” such as:-
- the need to require identity before being put onto the Electoral Roll, i.e. the need to delete Commonwealth Electoral Act Sec 98AA (2) (c) which has been used to create thousands of false enrolments (as were used in the recent NSW State election);
- the lack of proper ID for postal voting (this major source of rorting was used recently in Queensland inter alia to rob Pauline Hanson of a seat by a tiny margin);
(Postal voting has long been recognised as fertile ground for cheating, therefore many countries do not allow it. UK Election Commissioner Richard Mawrey QC, who has sent people to jail from both sides of politics, horrified during his visit to Australia 4 years ago, said that ‘postal voting is a recipe for fraud … the system is highly vulnerable at a number of critical points’; yet his concerns have been ignored by JSCEM)
- the need to restore Subdivisional voting – to tackle the multiple voting admitted by the AEC as having been 18,770 in the September 2013 election, yet no prosecutions were done! Nor will any be possible if the JSCEM report recommendations are used!
- the lack of integrity in the Electoral Roll. Pages 75 to 83 of the report can only be described as ‘pathetic’, when one considers what the Australian National Audit Office reports of 2002, 2004 and 2010 said, things which were largely ignored by the AEC.
“AFHE has pointed out many issues to media and JSCEM over the last 19 months, yet they have ignored most of our concerns, based on 22 years of experience,”
“Due to the inadequacies of this JSCEM report coming out over 19 months after the 2013 election, it is plain to all who would be interested in Australia having an honest democracy, that there remain major issues not yet addressed,” said Mr Stewart.
“Whether the Government and Minister Ronaldson are capable of, or interested in, addressing these issues to have honest and fair elections remains to be seen.”
For those of you new to the subject of democracy, and whether or not it exists in our country, you can see plainly that democracy is an illusion. However, reclaiming our “democracy” is a waste of time in reality, since it is a system of Mob (majority) rule. Now this would be fine if the majority had a strong moral code, was capable of using that thing between their ears (the brain = ability to think (analyse; decode reality) and knew the truth about history.
Unfortunately, as the majority of Australians have differing moral codes if any; the ability to think has been stolen by the dumbing down of intellect in the school system, through dangerous additives in vaccinations and poison in our food and water; and fed propaganda and lies as news, this does not behoove a good form of democracy anyway.
The answer is the original model of the American Constitution, a Republic, where we all have inherent rights granted to us at birth, and we are all armed, with a limited and small government, where the sovereign country retains its rights to control its own money supply.
When government considers us a fiction (see the Birth Certificate/Legal Person); and gives us benefits and privileges but does not recognise our inherent rights (human rights); and when the government is controlled by corporations not the people, then we have a problem. A BIG PROBLEM. The stuff that civil wars are fought over, but the civil war of today is an intellectual war, an Information War.
The answer is to regain control of our education system, and control of the courts by restoring the Rule of Law: Common Law which in reality is unobstructed Juries and Grand Juries with the power of Jury Nullification, founded upon the Magna Carta in 1215, which is 800 years old this year (2015) but has largely been repudiated by various Statutes masquerading as law.
