    The conservative answer to Getup! Punctuation might be incorrect, but at least they can spell.

    As a centre right, retired teacher, I abhor the trendy ‘rite’ on, but if it grabs the younguns, I’ll live with it.

    No discussion about population and immigration?

    …scientifically justified renewables. Should read market justified renewables.

    Defund the ABC.

    No discussion about population

    Dick Smith and the Greens weren’t given invites.

    Rite-on clearly understand the major threat to liberty from ponzi immigration policies, and the need to reduce immigration to lock in our future prosperity.

    How else are we to pay for all those pensions?

    Cities like Sydney and Melbourne will have to build a new subway line every 3-4 years to keep congestion at manageable levels, which simply isn’t going to happen. Something’s going to snap sooner or later. Better get ahead of the curve by cutting immigration in half before it’s too late!

  7. .

    The right thing to do is to end compulsory superannuation and cut taxes.

    Pensions are not, “prosperity”. It is an abused system and there is no proof at all we are better off than before we had compulsory superannuation.

    Immigration restriction will unlock the next generation of export-led growth, positioning Australia to cash in on the Asian century like never before. So much wealth will flow into this country, you won’t even recognise it. Yuge opportunities ahead!

    Immigration restriction will unlock the next generation of export-led growth, positioning Australia to cash in on the Asian century like never before.

    Explain how. This sounds absolutely crazy with no empirical evidence or any valid theory supporting it.

    You’re saying (severely) restricting immigration will be like what cutting tariffs and letting in FDI was for Australia since 1985?

  10. Fisky

    Australia’s per capita GDP growth rates have collapsed over the past 15 years, mostly thanks to ponzi immigration. We’ve even fallen behind Japan! Australia’s become lazy and un-innovative thanks to high immigration, the business community hasn’t had a new idea for decades, because they have a guaranteed growing customer base spending borrowed money. Just look at Gerry Harvey, the poster boy of the ponzi economy!

    We must reset our fundamentals to be competitive once again, with immigration falling to 1990s levels.

  11. sdfc

    Immigration restriction will unlock the next generation of export-led growth,

    Exporting what? We dig it up and ship it out. That’s what we are good at.

  12. Fisky

    Freezing immigration would also drive down the Australia dollar to the mid-60s (or lower) and help our exporters a lot, without needing to print money or change interest rates at all. Easy peasy.

  13. Fisky

    Australia hasn’t needed to innovate largely thanks to the immigration ponzi economy that has strangled our economy and diverted most of our savings into useless sectors like residential property. If we banned immigration, the gig would be up, the banks would have no choice but to offer better rates to small businesses and exporters, once their property ponzi lending model was closed off. All of the incentives would work beautifully.

  14. Fisky

    Per capita GDP was rising a solid 2.5% a year before Howard opened the floodgates around 2003. Since then, things have really slowed down, we’re barely growing at all. It’s a real mess!

    A falling Australian Dollar means a lower standard of living both in absolute and relative terms.
    A lower Australian dollar is a strategy for when the economy is in trouble through terms of trade deterioration or recession. It’s not something to be singing about in the rain.

    Furthermore, there’s simply no connection with a fall in immigration levels and a weaker dollar.

    Fisk honestly doesn’t believe this shit. He’s just boosting his own barrow because he’s being spiteful of any right wing org. that doesn’t follow his views 100%.

    He’s basically a right wing monty.

  17. Fisky

    We have to assume that, once we sent the signal that we’re not flogging Australian citizenship through higher education anymore, that a lot of fake capital inflows would stop. Our dollar would fall. This is fine, because we need to help our exporters, and it would be great for tourism too.

    It’s a small price to pay for having liveable cities and more space to relax in our parks and beaches. You can’t put a dollar value on those privileges, but that’s what it means to be Australian. It’s who we are.

  18. .

    that a lot of fake capital inflows would stop

    Jesus christ this is torture. You know it is largely an export, not a capital flow.

    “fake capital inflows”

    Precisely.

    Our dollar would fall.

    If we cut exports. To help exporters.

    You can’t put a dollar value on those privileges, but that’s what it means to be Australian. It’s who we are.

    You just did. You know this is hilarious in a very dry way but you’re just pettifogging anyone who isn’t lockstep with the Mr Fisk Party (MFP).

  19. Fisky

    It’s not about Left or Right. There’s a growing consensus across the political spectrum – at least among those who aren’t paid by Domain to give their opinions – that the ponzi economy needs to be reset at once. This can only start by cutting off the lifeblood to the ponzi merchants.

    Your site is suspect. Here’s St Louis Fed showing Australian Per Capita GDP at constant prices. It’s displays a steady progressive climb.

    https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/NYGDPPCAPKDAUS

    Here’s the St Louis Fed with real GDP up to 2011. It’s a discontinued series but it also shows a steady climb with flattening during the GFC.

    We have to assume that, once we sent the signal….

    And the economist said “Assume we have a can opener…”
    Unless you are manufacturing MOST of your requirements in Australia and are sourcing MOST of your materials in Australia a falling Australian dollar will mean a rising cost of living.
    You will not get livable cities. You will have more time to relax but you will be too hungry to enjoy it.
    Not being able to put a dollar value on privileges is what it means to be Australian? What nonsense!
    It is not bloody well “Who we are”. Are you some kind of labor/green watermelon?

  23. Fisky

    It’s not suspect at all. The source is the ABS, not the St. Louis Fed which only hard money cranks pay attention to.

  24. Fisky

    I can see Confused Old Misfit is a baby boomer who is terrified to learn of the coming collapse of the ponzi economy. Don’t worry, COM, your super concessions will probably be grandfathered, it’s the rest of us that are paying for the intergenerational theft.

  25. JC

    Fisky

    Argue immigration cuts on social grounds – not economics. You could make a credible case on sociological grounds.
    Too many of the fuckers vote left anyway, so I would curtail entry for this reason alone.

    Don’t argue it with suspect economics. Well you can in a way. You can argue that far too many new comers vote for the Liars party and the Liars party is dreadful for our economic well being, but that’s as far as you can go in order to carry some validity.

    Also, I can’t fucking stand inner melbourne being clogged up with traffic on the weekends. 🙂

  26. JC

    Unless you are manufacturing MOST of your requirements in Australia and are sourcing MOST of your materials in Australia a falling Australian dollar will mean a rising cost of living.

    Let me get this straight… a falling dollar means a higher standard of living?

    Misfit, are you fucking nuts or just kidding?

  27. JC

    I hate Domain anyway. Never read it. In fact they don’t deliver the crap to my street for some reason.

  28. Confused Old Misfit

    Misfit, are you fucking nuts or just kidding?

    Neither JC.
    A falling Australian dollar will mean a falling standard of living.
    If the imported dishwasher gets too expensive you can’t buy it. Your wife has to do the dishes. She’s more tired at the end of the day. Your sex life, ie your standard of living, declines.
    You then have to increase your productivity to the point where you can either afford a new imported dishwasher or a mistress!

    Per capita GDP was rising a solid 2.5% a year before Howard opened the floodgates around 2003.

    Only there was no big increase in overseas arrivals in 2003 or 2004.

  30. Fisky

    Sending the dollar higher or lower is neither good nor bad, it depends on the circumstances causing the movement. We could send our dollar through the roof by importing half a million people per year, but that’s not on the agenda for obvious reasons, and in any case it would only add to our long term debt when we start borrowing money to pay for very expensive upgrades to our cities.

    It’s the same with labour markets. Labour productivity rising or falling could be good or bad depending where we are starting from. Workchoices probably reduced hourly productivity, but that was because more marginal workers were getting work. So maybe it’s good or bad, it depends on your goals.

  31. sdfc

    You probably shouldn’t discuss FX.

  32. JC

    Sending the dollar higher or lower is neither good nor bad, it depends on the circumstances causing the movement.

    Well no, that’s not correct. Our living standard is measured in relative terms, that is relative to the rest of the world. If our currency falls unilaterally it means our relative standard of living has fallen. Now you can argue that it’s fallen because of economic headwinds and a falling dollar is the best way to handle things, otherwise we could experience an even worse outcome. However, it’s pretty clear that a falling dollar is very “ungood”.

    We could send our dollar through the roof by importing half a million people per year, but that’s not on the agenda for obvious reasons, and in any case it would only add to our long term debt when we start borrowing money to pay for very expensive upgrades to our cities.

    There’s no real connection between high population growth and a falling dollar. Zero relationship.

    It’s the same with labour markets. Labour productivity rising or falling could be good or bad depending where we are starting from.

    Labor market productivity is always, always , always good. It’s the only way to trigger rising real incomes.

    Workchoices probably reduced hourly productivity, but that was because more marginal workers were getting work. So maybe it’s good or bad, it depends on your goals.

    Sure, Labor market productivity has to be measured in context and we did see a fall in productivity when workchoices was instituted but again, it needs to be understood in context.

  33. Fisky

    Only there was no big increase in overseas arrivals in 2003 or 2004.

    But Howard nearly doubled the permanent intake in his last two terms, with the biggest increase coming from 2004-2005.

  34. Fisky

    There’s no real connection between high population growth and a falling dollar. Zero relationship.

    Not at all, it’s the other way. If we invited a million people into Australia next week, the dollar shoot up like a rocket. But we aren’t going to do that because it would ruin the country.

    Fisky, there’s no connection with a strong dollar, high immigration combo.

    So, Fisk, you reckon they reduce exports…and at the same time, they buy overseas goods on borrowed money?

    None of this makes the dollar appreciate.

  37. Fisky

    Sure, if 1 million people suddenly switched away from foreign currency to Australian dollars, that would hike the currency.

  38. sdfc

    But Howard nearly doubled the permanent intake in his last two terms

    No have a look at the ABS. 362k came in 2002, 388k in 2003, 412 in 2004, 442k in 2005 and 460k in 2007.

    Normal australians couldn’t give two shits about the dollar but they care deeply about the culture.

    Good friends of mine who are well travelled and “progressive” are moving to Sydney. They wanted to move to Chatswood but discovered the local primary school was 85% Ching Chong. No way on earth would they subject their kid to that scenario. Who would except other Chicoms?

    Something has gone majorly wrong in Australia.

  40. Fisky

    SDFC, we did not have 362,000 permanent migrants in 2002. It was a bit over 100K.

    Really? You mean they don’t mind paying the very high petrol prices for instance.

    They may not understand what it means to have a low currency, but the fuckers certainly experience it.

    Well good, As I keep saying argue your anti-immigration stance on sociological grounds.

  44. Infidel Tiger

    All normal people care about is the conversion rate with the Indonesian Rupiah or Thai Baht.

    Look bros, the reason there’s lots of dissatisfaction is because we’re a c..t of a country at the moment. We’ve priced domestic energy through the rood despite exporting cheap energy. 85% of the fucking coastline is marine park, so it means we can’t fish or look for oil. We’ve banned fracking on the land in nearly all states. We’ve chased away refiners with terrible anti-business policies. Our building code is a shambles. Union interference in our construction sector puts the New York mafia to shame as being amateurs. Our police forces are basically the police arm of the left. We’ve destroyed our military to the point that it’s gay. ABC runs a propaganda program and we basically stop our live sheep trade. One of the states has placed a floor on the selling of cheap beer in pubs.

    Sort some of this shit out.

    As the overseas immigration numbers show there was no huge influx of immigrants in 2002-04. It’s up to you now to show there was.

  47. Fisky

    As the overseas immigration numbers show there was no huge influx of immigrants in 2002-04. It’s up to you now to show there was.

    No, I don’t need to show that at all. What is manifest in the data is that Howard nearly doubled permanent migration in his last two terms, and that it continued to increase to record levels after that. And this coincided with a substantial and sustained fall in per capita GDP growth.

  48. AussieMaga

    Let’s hope they stick to real issues, not homo-erotic uber-gay Libertard issues like vaping, weed, tobacco smuggling, and killing of old people who feel sad (sad because they’re Libertarians who have wasted their entire life).

  49. .

    The government locking you up for two years and fining you $105,000 for growing your tobacco (and taxing tobacco @ $1076.35/kg) is a real issue, you dopey prick.

    Who are RightOn? Be warned. leave the “.au” from the end of their url and you will be taken to an American site with the same name, maintained by an organisation which is “… informally affiliated with
    The Missouri Patriot” , whoever they may be. Oz RightOn having the same name as a US equivalent does not seem to be a good idea.

  52. Rafe Champion

    This is what Rite-On! is about and the thread dissolves into a debate on the exchange rate.

    Look bros, the reason there’s lots of dissatisfaction is because we’re a c..t of a country at the moment.

    Lets get serious about fractional reserve banking again.

  54. Restrict immigration to self funded immigrants only. No more family reunions. No more refugees from places that do not embrace our culture. Australia for Aaustralians again!

    Look bros, the reason there’s lots of dissatisfaction is because we’re a c..t of a country at the moment.

    JC – Yep, I go along with that with the exception, ‘….at the moment.’ implies a short while but the EPBC Act was introduced under little Johnny in 97/98 so I wouldn’t call 20 yrs a ‘moment’. 97/98 was the pinnacle year that devolved into the greatest unspoken ‘Thomas Crown Affair’.
