Dear Ms Gillard from a 17 year old country girl

To Ms Gillard and whoever else reads this

My name is Brittany Stuart I'm 17 years old and shortly I will be 18 and legally allowed to vote along with many others. But what is the point in me voting when some aspects of the government are taking our say away from us which will eventually lead to our future. Let’s say something recent as the ETS and the Carbon Dioxide tax? I'm well aware of this as I re-call you said something along the lines that you wouldn't bring this is BUT you lied to your fellow Australians not only the older generations but the younger one’s as well.


What are you doing Ms Gillard? Why have you let it get this bad? The science is not settled so why are you insisting in this absurd carbon tax? Maybe if the government didn't waste it on other things or give our money to other countries for non essential projects. How about looking after Australians first? Dalby is getting a indoor swimming pool around $5 million that government funding is paying for: don’t you think that this money would be sent better elsewhere - like our roads that the flood effected?
I can't believe that Australia’s Prime Minister and her followers are bringing in this stupid tax and blaming it on farmers and cattle as well? Shame on you. If you like your vegetables, dairy products and beef, you have no right to put blame on them, on us.
There is no “blame” as there is not enough evidence to support your reasons for making more financial hardship for Australian families. We provide for our own country when other countries can't, we know how to work the land when people like you don't have a single clue. Farmers of any Agricultural background are doing something for their country and their consumers, their families.
I don't think you realize how hard it is, but then again people like you think you know everything and then bring in ridiculous accusations and tax, like this and push people off their own land out of their own business and stand over us and bully us.
You are going to be responsible for so much hardship you will send Australians broke whilst they are trying to support a family or you – because we taxpayers (I work too Ms Gillard) pay your wages.

You will even be the cause  of some family members to commit suicide with your new tax!


If I were involved with this I would personally be really embarrassed as you have made such fools out of yourselves. You are not really the Prime Minister. I know that you got Green Preferences and the independents to go with you. You have not earnt the right to Govern Australia!

In regard to methane, cattle Ms Gillard what don't you understand? Don't you see the cattle eat grass which is natural, then they digest it which is natural then they let of gas which is from the grass and body juices which is natural and then the manure is used as a fertilizer.
But wait! This natural cycle is damaging polluting the environment?! You have got to be kidding?! This cannot be true as “Scientist” have said that this is “true” even though they have been proven wrong by other scientist who is saying the exact thing I am. Yes I would be quiet embarrassed. And you listen to Tim Flannery? I would not have him as a school teacher -he is manipulative!

Honestly, I'm really disgusted in your government. Maybe this is comforting for you? My generation have loads of young adults like me who see through your lies, your schemes and your stuff ups and
then you blame it on the rest of us and leave it to us to clean up your mess? Well thanks to you my generation and the ones to come will still be cleaning up your stench long after you are gone.

If it hasn't quiet sunk in right now I AM one of many young adults and kids who will be the NEXT generation to strive of this land and as long as we are still breathing one by one we will fight for our rights.
We will fight for accurate information. We will fight for Australians to be able to be successful. We will fight your “misguided” taxes. We will fight like you have never seen for the return of private property rights.
Personally I will fight to stop the greens influencing every law that families have to live with. I will fight them for our name back. Farmers are the real environmentalist Ms Gillard – you have been played for a fool – or have you?

If I have to send an e-mail to EVERYONE who is in the government and say the same thing to get across to you I will. I will be heard and I WILL fight for our rights including no taxes that will not achieve anything except hurt families. Blaming the farmers was a bad mistake. If you want to import your own food go ahead. Other countries food is inferior – even their apples!
They haven't got the cleanest methods of farming or producing without toxic chemicals that are banned here in Australia. We have cause we are lucky Australian Farmers are the best in the world but you just want to tax us don't you?
Do not take our rights to be viable on our land off us stop bullying us. You know that making laws and taxing people when they are suffering now financially is not good coming from a Prime Minister. Locking up people's private property - well that is called stealing you know!

I want a future for my children but how can I when you are wrecking it. I will be heard and so will others; we won’t just stop until our future is secure.

You are a threat to Australia’s future on the course you are on.
