Over 20 years ago Australia voted not to become a republic, but would the
outcome be different now? In 1999 just 54% of voters said no to Australia
leaving the monarchy while 45% said yes. The debate has been reignited recently
and many Aussies think the Queen has no place in Australian politics.
LiveTribers, what do you think? Is it time for another referendum? Does
Australia need to be part of the monarchy?

Firstly, let's correct and explain a few things in the opening paragraph of this
topic. I voted in this referendum on November 6, 1999. We voted in order to
reject the proposed model of a Clayton's Republic. In that model, the Queen's
own retainers organised for us to have a president they, not us, chose. We also
rejected their plans to change the constitution, which they wanted to do on a
continuous basis which was not to be in our favour, but theirs. So, to make it
clear, we voted to reject their schemes, not to reject a Republic. Secondly, it
isn't just Australians who don't think the Queen has no place in our politics,
it's the entire Monarchy who believe they are above all politics in any country.
I will at some point show you just how that Monarchy control every part of our
lives down here. Thirdly, it isn't time for another referendum as we have not
educated ourselves about the Monarchy and all the evil it has done and continues
to do on a daily basis. When we expose them and unveil our strong republican
history that our British controlled education has successfully erased from our
history and teach the truth in schools, then it will be time to vote. Finally,
Australia has never been part of the Monarchy and never will be, as the Monarchy
shares power with nobody. They rule over us as unelected representatives of God,
whether you like it or not. If you oppose their rule or harm their enormous
income streams coming from our country to theirs, history will show you what
happens to those who have tried.
I believe that the Monarchy still has a place in out society, and I admmit to
having voted that way in both refereneda. IUt's a boy like an election; you
only need 50+% to govern, so why would we need to become a Republic? Have these
people not watched Mr Trump ? That's the risk you run!!!
Yes it is time we cut the apron strings albeit we do mostly govern ourselves but
why should we still be part of the Commonwealth. England has delivered their
convicts, their children from orphanages and work houses, tested atomic bombs on
our land with the cloud fallout over our cities. They did not come to our aid
during WW2 but thankfully America did or the plight of our parents and
grandparents would have been dire. They are more like celebrities to me with
all their troubles, jewels, lifestyle but I don't want them having a say in my
I also do not think Australians would be foolish enough to vote in someone like
Donald Trump. Our constitution would remain and probably how we govern this
country although I do feel we need a few less people doing so.
