Banking/Finance/Money Issues.

The current system of banking, finance and money/credit creation is based on fraud.

Once enough people realise and understand the truth, then we can put all the problems that money causes behind us.

The Commonwealth Bank of Australia was initially set up with this in mind.

Every Australian should learn the history of the Commonwealth Bank.  Please read the following information, as it is most important for you to have all the facts when you decide who to vote for.

The Truth About Banks
This is the text of a handbill which I had printed up for the 2001 Federal election in an attempt to educate people on the history of banking, and the fraudulent and criminal manner in which it operates.

The Story of the Commonwealth Bank
This is the text of a booklet which was written by an Adelaide man by the name of D.J. Amos.  I do no tknow much about this booklet, but it was reprinted by the Institute for Economic Democracy, and is still available.

Australia 2000: What will we tell our children?
This is a chapter from the book oby Jeremy Lee.
It contains the findings of a 1937 Royal Commission which states:
“...that the Commonwealth Bank can make money available to Governments or to others on such terms as it chooses, even by way of  a loan without interest, or even without requiring either interest or repayment of principal.”
This means that the Government does not have to recoup money, for building schools, hospitals or roads, through taxation.

Please also check out the Liberty Australia page History of the Commonwealth Bank.

You should also inspect the information on Liberty Australia's money page ("Governments in countries like Australia, United States and Britain to name a few, are now only permitted to make coinage and notes, the actual issuance or creation of money is firmly in private hands.")

"The Government should create, issue, and circulate all the currency and credits needed to satisfy the spending power of the Government and the buying power of consumers. By the adoption of these principles, the taxpayers will be saved immense sums of interest. Money will cease to be master and become the servant of humanity."
-Abraham Lincoln

"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks...will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.... The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs." -Thomas Jefferson

"History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling money and its issuance."
-James Madison


You may think this is too good to be true, but the truth is that if this country were run correctly, there would be no need for taxation.  Unfortuantely, it is not possible at present, or within the next few years, as people just cannot comprehend this.  We have been conditioned to accept taxation as essential to the running of a country.  But we can work towards it and certainly within 15 years, it is possible to make Australia tax free.

In the meantime, we can still eliminate all of our current taxes: GST, Income, Fuel excise, Beer excise, Captial Gains Tax and even council rates.  They can all be replace with one very simple tax.  A tax so simple, that we can also get rid of the Australian Tax Office, the Tax File Number and the Australian Business Number.  That saves the Government approximately $3 billion, and it saves everyone time and money.

For an individual, there is no need to fill out the increasingly complex annual tax return.  For a business, there is no need to work as an unpaid tax collector for the government.  There is no need for any paper work, which frees up accountants to work out ways to make money.  There is no need to keep receipts to make deductions, as there are no deductions.

If your salary is $500 per week, you will pay no more than $5 per week in tax.

What is this tax?  How does it work?

The Debit Tax is a tax on bank withdrawals.  This tax would be set at 1%.  Whenever you take money out of the bank, you pay the tax.   If you take out $250, you pay $2.50 in tax.

The tax is an additional charge on top of your withdrawal. Take out $500, and you account will be debited $505.

The tax is immediately transferred electronically to the Federal Treasury.

It gets better yet.

This tax actually makes more money for the government in revenue than it presently gets with all taxes.  The taxation revenue for the present year is approximately $187 billion.  The Debit Tax, at 1%, increases this figure to approximately $500 billion.

For further information please inspect the information at these web-sites:

  The Debit Tax Council of Australia:

See how the government could actually increase its tax income by charging a tax of only less than 1%.

No income tax, no sales tax, no GST, no death taxes.  Just 1% everytime you take money out of the bank.

That means with an income of $500 per week,

you would only pay a maximum of $5 tax per week.

Bankers compared to counterfeiters:
In his November 1993 report, Canada's Auditor general calculated that of
the $423 billion in net accumulated debt from Confederation to 1992, only $37 billion (8.75%) went on actual goods and services, all the rest (91%) consisted of interest charges. this should tell us how we all have become slaves.
