What the election is about
Garth George has done a pretty good column today
This election is not about trust, because the public does not trust politicians, except, perhaps, those of the Maori Party.I suggest you read it in full. It's one of his better ones.
It is not about the economy...tax cuts... Working for Families or KiwiSaver.. It isn't about whether John Key is fit to be Prime Minister, because as long as he is not Helen Clark he can't lose.
It isn't about energy or the environment[or]privisation. This election is all about freedom - the freedom of the individual to live his or her life with as little interference as possible from the state, its politicians and minions.
