"How to Vote" cards
 

For many years I have been a typical swinging voter. Growing disillusioned with the complete absence of statesmanship displayed by both the major parties over the last decade I have been looking for a viable alternative.

There is a wealth of knowledge and forward thinking in our country, but the opacity of our current system of governance seems to be dedicated to suppressing progress in any direction.

  • Lobbyists and oligarchs determine public policy backed by subservient media where obfuscation, misinformation and hidden agendas masquerade as news. Media diversity is important.
  • There needs to be transparency in government with real consequences for corrupt behaviour.
  • We need to get real about transitioning to clean energy; reinstating funding for the CSIRO etc.
  • I would like to see the separation of church and state. I believe religious institutions should pay tax. Megachurches are an unacceptable obscenity. School chaplaincy needs to be supplanted with the teaching of ethics, philosophy and humanities.

Fusion's policies will put the brakes on political entropy, with a focus on understanding the key areas that will ensure we thrive as both a species and identity.
