Catholicism and the Liberal Party

4212aa8c867d0571664e9818717f04f9So Cory Bernardi has finally made his move and put his career where his mouth is. A brave move whatever one might think of his politics, but one where at least his job won’t be at risk for another five and a half years.

How serious this upheaval will be is hard to say, but I do not rule out some military conflict and certainly some global economic consequences. He might pal up with Putin but if China is the target, make no mistake, Russia will side with China when the spaghetti hits the fan.

Trump said, “We will build new roads and highways and bridges and airports and tunnels and railways all across our wonderful nation. We will get our people off welfare and back to work, rebuilding our country with American hands and American labour.”

This could be a blueprint for Australia as well. Does anyone think The Donald would be concerned about where the money comes from? Not likely. One suspects he is already ahead of the game.
