Once upon a time elections were exciting and in many respects fun…I remember when I was young and lived in Upper Hutt we had great fun changing the coloured ribbons on peoples cars, blue to red or the reverse…there was only National or Labour and labour was all the rage, I was born in 1940…and in the early forties we had believe or not, free pre-school, primary and secondary and University was free too… And believe or not our highest tax rate was around seventy to eighty cents plus in the dollar using today's money. We were a lot fairer then, egalitarian some would suggest.
We had very few money manipulators and con-men as money traders and Ponzi schemes were few and far between because fingers Roger Douglas; Ruthie Baby had yet to con the nation. Economists and bankers were controlled and treated very much like dangerous animals and kept caged.
But then…we fell into the trap of believing that if some got richer then the wealth would trickle down and it would be shared amongst us all…which of course was when the massive Ponzi schemes got started… Mad Roger and his pixie Richard Prebble started the drive to the bottom, and the Nats realising that all their dreams had arrived continued down the same path, slashed social spending, introduced student loans, sold off our assets and shouted what good boys they were…
Since those times its been all down hill, massive growth in unemployment, 3rd world sicknesses, a huge growth in violent crime and a dynamic collapse in living standards and a huge upswing in poverty.
Bulls**t and jelly beans has been fed to us by the state sponsored Main Stream Media…I’m mean seriously folks NZTV simply lies through its Seven Sharp teeth and broadcasts whatever its instructed by its political master Steven Joyce…I mean would you actually trust him after the Media-works and Sky City deals.
A talented song writer wrote a song and a equally talented film maker put together a song and video telling the story of Planet Key…and it got banned… But right now you can listen to it because it has yet to be banned to bloggers…so here it is have a listen and share it with all your friends.
Doesn't it feel good to break a few rules...freedom to think, freedom to dream...freedom to hope...
