Quote of the day

Helping those who have been struck by unforeseeable misfortunes is fundamentally different from making dependency a way of  life. – Thomas Sowell
He also said:
Although the big word on the left is ‘compassion,’ the big agenda on the left is dependency.

    Too true, but we in NZ don’t have a political party which eschews the buying of votes through the creation of dependency on central government services, funded of course by the taxpayers.

    So we are limited to voting for the “lesser of the evils”.

    Even ACT , as conceived by Roger Douglas, was simply seeking a better outcome for taxpayers and consumers. There was little that could be construed as rolling back state dependency.
