So many Kiwis express their frustration on this and other forums about the current government and the other options which are the same. Just another colour. Red, Green, Blue, Yellow they have all deserted the team of 5 million. They are all interested in feathering their own nest, smiling for the international paparazzi, and looking for a cosy offshore job when they have gutted us enough!
I’m not a political activist, nor am I a political leader – too old for that. What I do know is that in the coffee shop where I catch up with friends and business acquaintances every day everybody is expressing the same frustration. They are pi**ed off with the current political setup and politicians of all creeds.
But nobody wants to do anything about giving the current crop of politicians and would be politicians a wake-up call. Michael Wood’s reference to “rivers of filth” actually applies to politicians – he just didn’t realise he was talking about himself.
So, are we all going to languish in our misery and keep complaining into our coffee cups and take no action? If that’s the case, then we have only ourselves to blame!
You might think that there is nothing as an individual you can do? I disagree. There is an existing political movement in New Zealand that can be that vehicle for change.
What I am going to suggest might be surprising. My understanding is that political parties receive advertising funding based on their membership numbers. At the last election both National and Labour received $1.3m.
Let’s get behind Social Credit. Yes, I hear your groans about the old-fashioned name and about your recollection of past policies. But! Look at it this way
- Well established name recognition
- Party structure in place
- Has a history of parliamentary membership
- Chris Leitch is standing up for our rights on a number of issues, but cannot do it alone
So, Team of 5 Million, are you ready to make a change and take control of your future?
By becoming a member of Team Social Credit, the Team of 5 Million can increase membership numbers and thus adverting funding. You can contribute to policy in areas that interest you. You can help shape New Zealand – dump Three Waters if that’s what you want, really exercise your rights under the Bill of Rights, develop a crime/policing policy, re open Marsden Point, ensure our kids and grand kids are being taught the three R’s (not this woke gender stuff my grandkids are being introduced to).
Just in case you are wondering – I am not Chris Leitch, but made a decision to join the party a few weeks ago.
