@bryce_edwards Budget is proof there is now only the Left in politics. Dreadful ethos of huge State has won; we learnt nothing from 20thC.— Mark Hubbard (@MarkHubbard33) May 21, 2015
The National Party’s budget yesterday was a socialist shocker. It’s a budget that will only grow dependency on a more and more powerful Big Brother Tax Surveillance state. For my overseas readers, National was supposed to be our party of limited government which professed belief in a small state - small 's' - and an individual’s freedom to be left alone pursuing their happiness, so long as they harmed no one. But yesterday Finance Minister Bill English proved the lie of this. His budget grows welfare, indeed, advantages welfare living relative to working, and contains nothing (NOTHING) for hard working freedom lovers, business people, risk takers and entrepreneurs – because National understands with how the free society is brought so low in the twenty first century, it only needs pander to the Statists. Symbolically this budget throws millions more dollars of taxpayer money at the government spy agencies, including IRD to audit the lives of tens of thousands more Kiwis. In the long game English and Prime Minister John Key probably think they are being clever taking the centre left and creating a viable ACT Party, but in actuality all they have done is use their reign to cement in the State as a huge, brutish disruption in the lives of the free, and in a way an honest and professed Left Labour Party could never have done so thoroughly, because this is about bad philosophy spooned into the gaping maws of sheeple upon an electoral deception, indeed, a blatant fraud of misrepresentation.
Direct from IRD's Tax Policy eletter this morning, this National Government budget - the below means tens of thousands of individuals to be bullied by the State, their private lives destroyed (and destroyed totally) ... welcome to the twenty first century Big Brother Tax Surveillance and Police State: don't be looking for the free society here, that's long done and buried:
Budget details announced on Thursday include a further Budget allocation of $74 million over five years for Inland Revenue’s investigations activity. This will target property speculation, and for tackling the hidden economy and aggressive tax planning strategies, Revenue Minister Todd McClay announced today.
