Most of the noise is coming from List MPs

List MP Golriz Ghahraman at yet another protest

If ever one required evidence that democracy is not the virtuous remedy to governance, then the current political environment in this country provides remarkable verification. It is said, democracy must be a failure because it places authority amongst the most ignorant. And with this current mob never a truer word was spoken. It has not gone unnoticed that most of the noise is coming from list MPs. They are the most ignorant and the least desired by an intellectual electorate.

Examples of these are Peters, Jones, Marks and Marcroft, all NZF list MPs and Genter, Ghahraman and Swarbrick, all Green MPs. This distinguished lineup are in the COL Government, they actually have authority over us. They are funded by us and spend our money with the forlorn hope that it may purchase intelligence but sadly, our money’s gone, they remain ignorant and we feel ripped off.

But things get worse under democracy. It is hard to believe there were enough stupid people in several electorates that chose to have the likes of Ardern, Coffey, Mahuta, Hopkins, Twyford, Davis and Robertson charged with running the country! Not one has a clue. But that doesn’t bother them. They spend even more of our millions farming out their ignorance to others who review, enquiry, write reports, chair commissions, and generally do the work that is beyond this hopeless mob.

It is like sitting an exam and having someone else answer the questions! There is no leadership. Therein lies the issue. A cyclist suddenly is put in charge of a Jumbo Jet. What could possibly go wrong? Crash and burn, that’s what. Two of the four engines are in flames but relax, there’s a socialist in charge. I will leave you with this, and I’m afraid that’s our lot right now with this mob.

Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word, equality. But notice the difference: while democracy seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude.
