I recently stumbled across a very interesting online booklet at http://www.ourconstitution.org/your_will.php Author was a certain Arthur A. Chresby who reportedly devoted 53 years of research and study into constitutional law.

The following in particular made me sit up and take notice

'The whole system of Parliament, and the SOLE reason for its existence, is to make laws for the people, with the clear implication that those laws will reflect the WILL of the people on the subject matter of those laws.

By those legal implications you have a lawful duty and obligation to keep your Members and Senators fully informed about what your WILL is upon any issue or matter that comes before them in their Houses of Parliament, or that should come before them.

It is only when you fulfil that lawful duty and obligation that your members and Senators can properly fulfil~their judicially defined function and duty in their houses of Parliament. If you do not fulfil your lawful duty and obligation, if you do not keep your Members and Senators fully informed of your will on any issue, then you cannot blame them for what they do. You have only your own laziness or indifference to blame

The people well and truly let them know what they thought about a carbon tax. Didn't make an iota of difference. The people will once again let them know what they think about a carbon tax in September.

Do you think they'll listen this time?

Praxidice>> You have only your own laziness or indifference to blame<<

A bit harsh sport.

Given that the sovereignty of most nations of the globe has been usurped by the U.N, the IMF, and the World Bank, what part of our destiny can any national political party direct? Only domestic social policy and that is contoured to fit U.N social mandates we have been signatories to.

We have a partisan media that like our governments are directed on subjects that are taboo for national debate. Unless you are like most on this forum, you have a media only cloistered view of the world. Itís difficult to ask the right questions when the act is unknown to you.

Have you spoken to the unwashed lately? They live for today, there is no history and no tomorrow for them, what affects them today is all they are concerned with. Praxi, how can you blame simple souls for being inadequate lobbyists, they are distracted with media blitzes on misogyny and the C02 they exhale.

There are only two ways to get accountable government in Australia, either instate non compulsory voting or ask for an IQ validation, but again that is a bit harsh.

Dear Prax.,

It would be great to have our elected representatives
actually listen to our views.

Ever tried talking
to your MP? It would also be great if we could
formulate our views on being given full information
so that we could make informed choices.

But in order for that to happen we need to not be
denied access to the information we need to make those
choices. We're often given false or misleading
information. Our media reporting is often very
narrow. And our public officials don't always tell us
the truth. Only then as citizens could we
use our rights in a meaningful way.

Still I suppose that
no matter what country people inhabit, they tend simply
to accept the system they've been socialised to believe
in. Most people take the legitimacy of their particular
political system for granted.

Good Luck with expressing your views (will) to any
politician.

Note that what I put in the original posting was verbatim from the author Chresby. I intended to add the following however something didn't work out so here 'tis (all bar the last paragraph is Chresbys)

How do you correctly inform your Members and Senators of your WILL? It is so simple that only laziness and indifference ON YOUR PART stops it from working. Yes, it is so very simple, and here is an example:- Suppose, for instance, you believe that income tax should be halved and sales tax completely eliminated. You write, in this case AN INDIVIDUAL letter to your Federal Member, and each one of your State Senators, such as this:-

Dear Sir,
I know that it is my duty to keep you informed of MY WILL on anything that comes before Parliament, or that should come before Parliament
IT IS MY WILL that you take immediate action to have income tax halved and sales tax removed completely.
Yours faithfully,
(signed)

(Insert your full name, address and date, as legal evidence that you are a constituent.)

Should your Member or Senators try to side-step (and some of them are extremely adept at doing this) or tell you what their party is or is not doing, you simply write back and say:-

Dear Sir,
I repeat that, in accordance with my lawful obligation to keep you informed of MY WILL, I again inform you that it is MY WILL that you take immediate action to have income tax halved and sales tax removed completely.
Yours faithfully. '

Given my utter disgust with the political circus generally & with a federal election looming on the horizon, Chresbys comments come at a particularly good time. All three of my local representatives are near moribund oxygen bandits, consequently I'm always interested in anything that promises to ignite a conflagration under their fat backsides. I would nevertheless be glad to hear comments from others as to whether or not they perceive holes in Chresbys story.

RawMustard - no I don't think they will listen, however what I got out of the Chresby booklet was the words of someone with vastly more knowledge & experience than mine. I figure there is nothing to lose and possibly a lot to gain.

sonofgloin - that was Chresbys words not mine, although personally I don't consider anything said in condemnation of apathetic sheeple unduly harsh

Lexi - I'm gonna give it a go, what has one got to lose ??
