Hone Harawira being smeared - NZ politics

Share |
This is going to be a protracted election year in NZ. Already we are witnessing the smear from elected representatives....is that what they are?
According to the NZ Herald, there is evidence suggesting that the rogue Maori Party MP Hone Harawira sought a ministerial position when it was negotiating a coalition with National Party. The implication is that Hone Harawira is disingenuous because he is now against the coalition. The implication is that because Hone Harawira did not get a ministerial position, he is now doing a dummy spit.
Of course this is the implication the Maori Party want you to draw, and its the one the National Party also want you to draw because they do not want you to vote for him in the next election, and to diminish the position of the Maori Party, or upset their cozy coalition.
The reality is that this is just one possibility. Maybe Hone Harawira did do a 'dummy spit', and resented not being given a ministerial position. The other possibility however not countenanced by this MPs all too willing to discount him, is that the Maori Party MPs have alienated themselves from their electorate by forming a coalition with a party which represents values remote from its own. The second plausible reason that Hone Harawira has changed his mind about the coalition is because:
1. He expected the coalition to achieve real concessions from the National Party
2. He actions of the party since the coalition was formed
3. The practical consequences of forming the coalition

I don't like the politics of the Maori Party any more than I like Hone Harawira. I think they are all corrupted by our system of government. Democracy, if you read my political blog is merely a process for legitimatising collectivism or tyranny. It is not a system of justice, as no system which does not respect objectivity can be. The political discourse I am highlighting here is just a swob from the wound caused by democracy. It is truly a flawed system, and these political power plays and extortive tactics are democracy, and are not merely a side-show.
So I say, don't vote for any of them. Vote for the most unlikely of candidates - an unaffiliated libertarian. Not because you embrace their politics or philosophy, but because they embrace small government, which means they want to diminish the side-show. That is the least you could do. The most that you could do is to get off your butt and protest the fact that democracy is a repudiation of economic rights, which means you have no rights at all. Political rights without economic rights is a myth. It is not 'No taxation without representation', its 'Representation is a myth, taxation is slavery'.
Don't be lured into these false dichotomies, as if it was one or the other. You don't have to mortgage your personal liberty to attain freedom. You just have to recognise your sovereign right to be free from the coercion of others. i.e. The problem today is that coercion is practical. It is practical because the majority sanction it. You would not allow others to abuse your children; acknowledge that you are allowing your government to abuse you, but failing to acknowledging the abuse - unconditional taxation/expropriation. That is tyranny - you have no recourse. Don't pretend for a moment that a vote every 3-4 years makes a difference when the vote offers no political point of differentiation, when the two parties are the same, and there are only two parties. Its an illusion; all smoke and mirrors. You have been had.

Japan Foreclosed Property 2015-2016 - Buy this 5th edition report!

Over the years, this ebook has been enhanced with additional research to offer a comprehensive appraisal of the Japanese foreclosed property market, as well as offering economic and industry analysis. The author travels to Japan regularly to keep abreast of the local market conditions, and has purchased several foreclosed properties, as well as bidding on others. Japan is one of the few markets offering high-yielding property investment opportunities. Contrary to the 'rural depopulation' scepticism, the urban centres are growing, and they have always been a magnet for expatriates in Asia. Japan is a place where expats, investors (big or small) can make highly profitable real estate investments. Japan is a large market, with a plethora of cheap properties up for tender by the courts. Few other Western nations offer such cheap property so close to major infrastructure. Japan is unique in this respect, and it offers such a different life experience, which also makes it special. There is a plethora of property is depopulating rural areas, however there are fortnightly tenders offering plenty of property in Japan's cities as well. I bought a dormitory 1hr from Tokyo for just $US30,000.
You can view foreclosed properties listed for as little as $US10,000 in Japan thanks to depopulation and a culture that is geared towards working for the state. I bought foreclosed properties in Japan and now I reveal all in our expanded 350+page report. The information you need to know, strategies to apply, where to get help, and the tools to use. We even help you avoid the tsunami and nuclear risks since I was a geologist/mining finance analyst in a past life.
