"Politics & Commentary with Balls"
I just wanted to add a little piece of work before the election , just to get my head on straight.
This will be my first political piece before the election post my February 6 2012 incident, so bare with me.
I have already voted, 2 ticks blue as I have done for the last 5 elections.
I come from a Labour household, where they supposedly, looked after the working man.
My first 2 votes were for labour. I have grown up since then.
I could never vote for Labour again, unless they changed their high tax, high spending ways.
National are not my perfect idea for a political party, but they are the closest.
All the other parties, except ACT want an intrusion into your and your loved ones lives. I don't want to vote for ACT because, we'll I can't, they don't have a representative in the Hawkesbay.
The perfect party would want a much smaller role in the daily lives of everyone. Through business, social, and all aspects of life.
The main reason I'm voting National are their tax policies.
Labour want to introduce 5 new taxes and for that they are to be lambasted.
One I want to briefly talk about is their CGT.
They say they want to bring it in because it's fair, because it's in every OCED bar two, because it will put a stranglehold on property prices.?
Apart from the fact that their Spokeperson for finance can't explain it properly - really it would be hard for the most intelligent person explain it and he is no slouch in the brain department.
The fact is it is complicated.
In Australia, we're it was introduced in the mid 80s it was responsible for making the IRD increase in size BY a THIRD.
It's didn't do anything to house prices.
If you want to make our government even larger, complicate the tax system and put a drag on the economy. All taxes are a drag, no taxes are good, or fair or stimulate growth.
They have the opposite effect.
Hi again 2 posts in 2 days, wow.
Anyway it has just occurred to me that labour have a plan. They plan to change EVERYTHING that national have done over the last 5 or 6 years.
I've heard them announce policies over the last few days and it occurred to me that every part of a particular policy WILL be changed, save a couple of good details. They are talking about education, benefit rates, employment law etc...everything put in place by key that has done us very we'll over the GFC.
Are you really that finicky that you would change because of a few emails and the appearance of 2 fat men on the political horizon...2 vicious men who don't give a fuck about you or me, they just care about themselves.
Think about it before you vote, I'm voting 2 ticks blue this sept 20. There is nobody else, I'd vote for labour if they had decent people who were normal and had good sound policies but they don't.
Sept 20 do the right thing.
Just a brief note on one pushy person, Anna Lorke, labour candidate for the tukituki seat, hawkesbay, for the sept 20 election.
She just happened to knock on my door to answer questions. Well, what I thought was answer questions, she did and I told her my first vote was for labour all those years ago and that all she needed to do to make me vote labour again was go back to what David Lange did in the 1980s and she'd get my vote again.
No she said she was far more progressive than that.
She told me she voted national and came on over to labour on their education vote.
She finally told me what she was really there for, to put a hoarding up on my property, a cool corner one where it's close to the street.
I said no the owner wasn't up that.
Neither was the occupant.
