“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Socialist Party presidential candidate Norman Thomas

John Howard for President!!!

Prime Minister John Howard - Australia

Circumspect reader David sent this to me and I thought it would be refreshing to show you a world leader who says all the things we conservative Americans are thinking. It appears to be a long speech but you'll fly through it in about a minute...cheering all the way...

Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia , as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks.

Quote(Major): "IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or Leave It. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali , we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians."

"However, the dust from the attacks had barely settled when the 'politically correct' crowd began complaining about the possibility that our patriotism was offending others. I am not against immigration, nor do I hold a grudge against anyone who is seeking a better life by coming to Australia ." "However, there are a few things that those who have recently come to our country, and apparently some born here, need to understand." "This idea of Australia being a multi-cultural community has served only to dilute our sovereignty and our national identity. And as Australians, we have our own culture, our own society, our own language and our own lifestyle."

"This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom"

"We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society . Learn the language!"

"Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture."

"We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us."

"If the Southern Cross offends you, or you don't like "A Fair Go", then you should seriously consider a move to another part of this planet. We are happy with our culture and have no desire to change, and we really don't care how you did things where you came from. By all means, keep your culture, but do not force it on others.

"This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom,


"If you aren't happy here then LEAVE. We didn't force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted."

How satisfying would it be to have a politician from either party in the U.S. say exactly this? Tragically for America, ALL our politicians are in the grip of multicultural political correctness and would never say anything so insensitive and nationalistic. Astute reader Kevin hinted earlier this week about looking for a different place to rear kids and pay taxes. Well Kev, Australia is looking better and better, ain't it?

Commercial air travel is available from the U.S. to Australia daily! I may see you on the flight. I'll be the one reading "Atlas Shrugged".

Anonymous above does not wish to remain so: it was David. But you probably already guessed that based on my handwriting.

Kevin said...

Haha well ill be the one talking to you about it. Have you read it before?

What i really enjoy about this is it is a guy, excuse me a man, in a political seat, who is standing up for what he believes in, and says what he feels, unfortunately that doesnt make him a very good politician, but i would vote for him. he is what this country needs.

more old junk circulating the internet...

Objectivism doesn't work for the same reason Communism doesn't work: the human factor. People are gready and by nature will bend and break rules to get ahead. Where does all the corruption we see come from? Joe consumer-six-pack? Nope. From people with money...and that would be... oh! yes! the very people idolized in Rand's books. Nice read if not a bit heavy handed in its' repetitiveness.

I look forward to your stay in Australia. Good luck!
