If a child asks a parent for endless lollies and the parent says no, we call them a good parent. If a politician does the same, we call him a heartless right-winger! It’s crazy.
If you keep letting politicians bribe you with your children’s money, you’ll get the government you deserve.
If Labour and National had adopted ACT’s 1994 tax cut strategy sooner, we’d all be a lot richer now. We pay a very high cost for waiting for timid conservatives to see sense.
Give ACT the numbers tomorrow, and Rodney Hide will make sure National stokes the engine of economic growth and gets us all richer quicker.
No more communism by stealth. No ruinous Emissions Trading Scam. (That’s likely to leave the Greens’ little girl without a job as her mum shovels $3000 a year to the Russians.)
If ACT’s ‘3 Strikes’ policy had been in place earlier, Emma Agnew, Karl Kuchenbecker, the trio murdered in the Panmure RSA and many other poor souls would still be alive.
William Bell had amassed 102 convictions when he killed Mary Hobson, William Absolum and Wayne Johnson.
Antonie Dixon had been found guilty of 160 offences when he killed James Te Aute.
If ACT had been running things, they would have both gone to prison for life after their third violent assault. Before they killed. Not after.
It’s not just in the crime area where the difference between voting ACT and Labour/National could be the difference between life and death.
ACT’s 20 Point Plan for the economy would boost Kiwis’ pay over time, not by $10 or $50, but by $500 a week.
We’d grow the economy, so we can afford the full year course of Herceptin that richer countries can afford. Under Labour mismanagement, a New Zealand breast cancer sufferer must find $100,000 – or die.
And the Labour government would rather you died than let a private hospital save your life. That’s not mad. That’s bad.
Other parties say they care. But only ACT has the cure.
Normally-socialist Sweden has been implementing ACT’s school scholarship system since 1994.
Today, only one party in Sweden doesn’t support it, and that’s the Communists.
Each parent gets a scholarship from the government for about $100,000 per child – the same as the state spends on your child over thirteen years of schooling.
You’ll have to spend that money with schools. But you can choose whether they’re public or private schools. Or even home schools.
The point is, those schools will have to do what you want, not what bureaucrats want. And in Sweden, that’s led to a flourishing of new, smaller, schools and a surge in education standards.
(And the areas that have benefited most have been the poor areas, where they had no choice but bad schools before.)
Do you want a government of change? Or just a change of government?
If you want real change, you won’t get it from National alone. You’ll need to strengthen the coalition with a spine of principled, experienced, gutsy ACT MPs.
With Rodney Hide ahead in Epsom by 56% to 27%, your ACT party vote will definitely count.
It will have the same power to flush away Helen Clark as a National party vote.
But in improving New Zealand, it will be much more powerful.
Because by adding more ACT MPs to the National/ACT coalition, you’ll be boosting the chances of getting the above results for you, your family and New Zealand.
ACT is peaking at the right time – as usual! If National get 47% of MPs and ACT 4%, Rodney Hide is going to have a lot of clout with John Key.
Once, ACT’s founder had the guts to do what was right for New Zealand, and our modern, energetic society with its wonderful array of choices is his legacy.
Now it’s your turn.
