Older citizens stand up and be counted

We have a Motoring Enthusiast’s Party in the Senate for those who like cars; we have incompetents like Jaqui Lambie taking up a seat; and we have a host of other fringe groups seeking seats so they can advocate sex and cannabis and God knows what else.

With millions of people now in the upper-age bracket, who are regularly relegated by governments to a status of uselessness, if not abject liability as far as society is concerned, why, oh why has a party not arisen to represent older citizens in the Senate and use the balance of power to protect older citizens?

With so many potential voters, it is the best and easiest way to influence government policy and cease this campaign of denigration that has been used to justify driving older folk into poverty.

Surely the marginalisation and impoverishment of those who have carried the burden of developing the society we now enjoy, is a little more important than cars.

When will we stand up and be counted?
