“Ask and you will receive” said Christ. To my amazement in 1986 when I invented Votergrams, those Australians who asked their MPs by sending Votergrams, did indeed receive what they wanted. Was it my accountant brain or divine inspiration? Jesus was a very practical person and His teachings gave us lessons for life.
“Do for others what you want them to do for you” and “Love your neighbours” with its Good Samaritan story, seem the most appropriate to our responsibility to God in respect of our Aboriginal First Nation fellow Australians.
The “First Nations voice to parliament” will be in due course determined. Meanwhile most thinking Australians can see that in terms of money, housing, health and education services Aboriginal First Nations people are suffering multi-generational PTS from rape, child kidnapping, murder and land theft at the hands of early governments and settlers. Few of us would survive that well.
The market value of land stolen at gun point from the Aboriginals who owned it, is booming like never before. How does that “Advance Australia Fair”?
What puzzles me is that each Aboriginal First Nations Australian has for 35 years, like every other Australian, had access to the very effective and inexpensive Votergram service to take their requests, suggestions, needs, ideas and criticisms, directly to each of the 227 Federal MPs.
Yet none have used it to have an effective voice on matters that affect them. Why Not?
Recently the service has been offered to them free of charge but still none have used it as a Voice to Parliament. Why?
The most effective voice to parliament is not necessarily that of a non-voting organisation to ministers. It is a voice from many individual voters in many individual electorates to each and every Member of Parliament. That sends a ballot box message and it gives each of 227 Federal MPs a chance to initiate what is wanted.
Votergrams have been offered to the Aboriginal First Nations people free for all of 2021
