Tough issues to face on campaign trail

ANZAC Day celebrates hard won freedom, but tragically freedom has become a cliche as people still live in oppression, fear, gender segregation, and religious taboos to name a few.

Refugees come to this country claiming they are fleeing oppressive regimes, yet the moment they are granted the protection and freedom of Australia, these same refugees set about setting up the restrictive enclaves they claimed they were escaping from. Who is fooling who?

With the up-coming election this issue must be addressed along with law and order.

What is going on when gang related killings are carried out in broad daylight? An innocent patron was injured in a coffee shop in Bankstown NSW. Freedom is nothing more than a sick joke, along with law and (disorder). Who is running the country, Noddy or the Court Jester?
