Your View: State election

ON March 17 electors will have to decide if they want the Labor Party to govern South Australia for another four years, following its 16-year rule.

The past two SA elections enabled Labor to get back by default, because of preferential voting.

Scottish historian Alexander Tyler stated in 1887, “Every democracy will finally collapse because of loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship.”

Labor is well known for spending billions of dollars while in power, because many ill-informed electors vote for a party that promises the most from the treasury, without consideration of how the huge debt will be repaid. Labor has accumulated a huge interest bill and, with all the election promises being made, that will escalate.

Political promises are like pie crusts, made to be broken.

Mr Tyler stated democracies start from bondage and go to spiritual faith, from spiritual faith to great courage, from courage to liberty, from liberty to abundance, from abundance to complacency, from complacency to apathy, apathy to dependence, and from dependence back to bondage. It doesn’t take much imagination to work out where we are in this vicious circle.

Common sense unfortunately is not common anymore. Political correctness has taken over.

Mr Tyler’s statement paints a chilling picture of politics in Australia in 2018.

If electors do not vote responsibly on March 17, then we will get the government we deserve.
