Community Announcement

We did NOT vote for one world government. The fact is "Politicians" work for a corporation, NOT The Will of the People, as they are supposed to under our Constitution.

Where is the Governor General? MIA over citizenship chaos and abuse of our Constitution. The Governor General is SUPPOSED to be looking out for The People to ensure all laws created by the "government" are in the best interests of The People, and in accordance with the Constitution. The Parliament has abused the Constitution, yet the Governor General is MIA - why? Because he has no power under the corporation. Australia is run by a corporation, of which the Governor General is useless to The People who are supposed to be protected by our Constitution.
For more information, please research the Lima Declaration and the unlawful changing of the Constitution by the Whitlam government in 1973, or visit Facebook groups #UNexit,
