"Australia, correctly in my view, does not have a Bill of Rights..."

Wow.

The guy is a hard-core statist.

That line right there said everything I needed to know in order to form my opinion about what this guy thinks.

It’s a pity that we have someone of the same mindset as Mr. Howard in our own Oval Office. It’s downright frightening that the seats of our Congress may very well be filled with this man’s ilk as well.

God save this country when we go down the path of Australia, because at that point no one else will.

In Australia I have seen off duty cops in Brisbane leaving their stations in uniform without their guns. You think that would ever happen in NY, Chicago or Detroit?

Australia does not have the masses of low lifes like we do here.

My thoughts exactly.

Apparently, the Aussie PM is NOT a fan of the Bill of Rights.

I AM.

And that is what makes America UNIQUE & EXCEPTIONAL - from the time of our founding, those old white guys knew exactly what they were doing to create a free country. Australia and New Zealand and Canada followed the British Crown - Clearly, we do not want to emulate these seemingly “nice” countries when it comes to individual freedom as we have in America.

Another moron who thinks he understands more about the principles of limited government than James Madison.

Madison's view of government has been vindicated repeatedly throughout history. One of the reasons that Europe is in the mess that it's in is because of Parliamentary Supremacy.

No thanks. The rights of the majority to rule are important, but the rights of minorities -- especially the rights of the smallest and most defenseless minority there is, a single individual -- have to be protected as well. They have no such protections in parliamentary systems.
