TOUGHER PENALTIES FOR CRIMINALS
Call us crazy, but the way we see it a politician’s job is to follow the instructions voters give them.
If we’re elected it’ll be because you wanted us to give the Government a backbone, to insist they reform the justice system as you instructed.
We want justice for victims of crime and harsher penalties for those who do the crime.
How loony is that?
Criminals will be made to do hard work; there’ll be no time to moan about being hard done by.
But it's not just us calling for tougher sentencing; over 90% of you instructed the Government - via a referendum - to harden up on criminals. You were ignored.
If you've had enough of this arrogant and toxic behaviour from politicians - it’s time to show them the yellow card.
On our watch referendums will be binding, justice will prevail.
Anything else is just crazy talk.
YOUR FIRST $20,000 TAX FREE THEN A FLAT TAX
In Wellington they’ve always got some hairbrained scheme in mind to spend your money. Seems like only yesterday that the honourable member for Wainuiomata thought it might be a top idea to reincarnate the Moa.
The only other reason we need to pay so much tax is to fund the Government’s vote buying programme; which clearly is proving to be more expensive than first thought. This is where they try and turn as many hardworking kiwi families as possible into beneficiaries.
It doesn't get any more cynical.
Bit of a tip - it’d be cheaper, not to mention more transparent,
to just tax us all less in the first place. If for example you were earning $20,000 per year, you’d pay no tax, and be $2520 better off. That’s nearly $50 a week in your back pocket. After that everyone pays
a flat tax.
So that’s our plan.
Don’t let anyone tell you we can’t afford a tax cut. Especially if they’re from Wellington. It’s not their money. The Government just needs to stop spending our wages and salaries like drunken sailors.
We'll put real money in the hands of those that need it and know what to do with it. Letting anyone else spend it for you is just lunacy.
ON OUR WATCH REFERENDUMS WILL BE BINDING
At the heart of the democratic system is the principle of the citizens initiated referendum. It's when a single issue is thought to be so important, all voters are asked to make their opinion heard.
Getting it and keeping it - it's why wars get started.
In New Zealand since MMP started five such referendums have been held. Each and every time the wishes of the people were crystal clear. Each and every time the results were ignored by successive Labour and National Governments.
They've ignored what you think on anti-smacking; on tougher penalties for criminals, and asset sales.
When an overwhelming majority of us voted to have less politicians, guess what happened? That's right. They ignored that too. Call us old fashioned, but this sort of arrogance needs to stop.
What really worries us is this: what else are they looking to ignore?
To think they won't is madness.
ONE LAW TO RULE US ALL
The fact that in this day and age Maori are treated as 2nd class citizens and victims drives us nuts.
Since 1867 Maori have been segregated by special laws and separate seats in Parliament, and how's that worked out do you think?
Exactly. No good has, or will come from using a race based system to govern. Nor incidentally, does it come from repeating mistakes.
Einstein once defined insanity as doing the same old thing over and over, but expecting a different result.
Our wild and crazy thought?
Try something new.
It’s time to bring closure to the claims process and look to the future.
We stand for equal rights and representation for all New Zealanders, plain and simple.
Let's change a broken system.
Nothing loony about that.
