Letters: THE most powerful weapon for winning the war in the opinion pages of the newspaper is educating its people.

R. Henderson (NM, 2/5) quoted that this was achieved by Labor MP in three months and that is only the start.

Here we go again.

Labor only knows how to spend, and spend the money they didn't earn, and hand out money the economy cannot cope with.

The Labor Party only works well in opposition.

They have a ferret-like ability to root out problems. And this is necessary in any government.

However, every time they are in government it proves they do not have what it takes to govern.

Labor and union's part in the nation is declining.

It is a shock to see polls where the Federal Labor leader and party are ahead of the government.

One thing I don't understand is why the media even bother to ask labour members to comment on the economy that they block any effort of the Government that they try to make to fix the mess labour created.

Please let the government get on with the job of governing.

Industry suffers because unions restrict what workers can and cannot do.

What used to be a 20 minute job for one man can turn into a day's work for several men.

This fear is based more in greed than in need.

The more we get the more we want.

The only truly happy people are those who have learned that a man's riches do not depend on how high is his or her income, but how small are his or her wants.

In the United States where voting is not compulsory, they have a saying "bad governments are elected by good people who don't vote".

Here in Australia, it would be true to say that "bad governments are elected by good people who don't know who they are voting for".
