ACT needs to identify itself as the Party for the right of centre

Guest Post:

I would love to see some fresh and capable candidates come forward of the calibre of Dr Muriel Newman, MP Heather Roy, MP David Garrett, Dr Don Brash and MP Rodney Hide. Members prepared to stand up for New Zealand family values, Christian based values and dedicated to serving their electorates and communities on the policies originating under the ACT Party.

I should like to see candidates rigorously targeting marginal Labour seats to gain those seats on merit and service. Based on Nationals current standing it would only take four competent candidates to restore the balance and rid the Nation of the debacle of a geriatric (with a front bench lineup as weak as the greens), standing on false (or discarded) promises.

If Seymour doesn’t exhibit a willingness to lead the way in this direction in a very short time, he must stand aside for a leader who will. Seymour has won his seat in Epsom squarely against formidable opposition and has secured a following there, so I would expect him to continue to represent Epsom, but I fear National may now move strongly to take the seat as one of its safe seats, so ACT cannot remain complacent of its past arrangements, it must now go all out to secure the Epsom Seat and be in a position to remain (or secure) a supporting partner in government.

ACT needs to identify itself as the Party for the right of centre (A minimum of 15%). A first step is to secure independent funding so the Party can continue its work on a scale commensurate with its mission. It is surprising that Messrs, Preeble, Gibbs, Brash, Hide, all experts in that financial area, have not done that work already. Maybe that is the most critical failing and an early priority.

With the Greens fronting a list lineup which is almost entirely accredited communist practitioners and sympathisers, I cannot believe that New Zealanders would want and vote for liberty crushing communist policy if ACT had done its job and fully explained the values of liberty and opportunity. On that basis, I don’t agree that ACT should merely aim for parity with such as the greens, whose policies are entirely repressive of the communities future.
