Letter to The Editor - Not a word about the more important contrast between the major parties
To The Age Ross Gittins provides an analysis of the differences between the Coalition and Labor that is slanted to attract more votes to Labor ("A real choice this election", 15/5). Just look at this sentence of his: "Labor wants to make the well-off (including the well-off retired) pay more tax, while using the proceeds to increase government spending on health, education, childcare and much else." And this phrase: "The biggest redistribution of income from high income earners to low and middle income earners we've seen in ages." And his conclusion: "Will your choice be aimed at benefiting yourself and your family, or the wider community and 'those less fortunate than ourselves'?" Not a word about the more important contrast between the major parties: Australia to remain under the Coalition a free nation (well, relatively, at least) or to become (thanks to an ALP-Greens alliance) a state-controlled socialist community on the way to communist tyranny.
