Thoughts before 20th September 2014

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.?

What?

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.
