                 auDA is a non profit org.
                 Check their 1998-1999 Financial Report
(, I see the word PROFIT used a
few to many times.
                 They also are offering a position for a CEO which would
gain a large (very large) sallary. (

                 But they are only asking a selected part of the public.
                 My scheme would  give the WHOLE public a chance to have
their say.


I would appreciate your comments on my beliefs as if given the chance, would
like to start/help setup a system like the one above for the good of
Australia and its people.

Does anyone else believe that my scheme would make a difference to this
I ask you to speak up!  --  Maybe it can happen.
