Alright. So over the last few days, I've seen a slew of "If you want x, then vote y" posts. Mostly along the lines of "If you want to change the government ..." or "If you want to change the government and believe our questionable commitment to doing something about deep sea oil drilling ..."
Well, I can't promise anything about whether a vote for NZ First is a vote to change the government. But what I can promise is that a vote for NZ First represents a vote for a fundamental change in direction from either National OR Labour.
A #Vote for NZ First is a vote to restore privatized assets to Kiwi state ownership. A vote for NZ First is a vote to ensure *our* generation gets to retire at 65, with a potent sovereign wealth fund a la Norway to ensure sustainability. And a vote for NZ First is a vote to ensure that *all* our people have their needs addressed, particularly as applies economic deprivation, through a universalist framework that renders assistance whatever sort of Kiwi you are.
So this year, think about your vote not just in terms of whether it changes the government or re-arranges the Ministerial deck-chairs ... think about it in terms of whether it changes what the government *does*. And how you can influence it to deliver the change *you* want.
Oh, and I can promise you one other thing. I'll be fighting mad hard to *ensure* those bottom lines get actioned.
