I don’t pay too much attention to what is happening politically in Europe and the UK because I consider the battle there was lost decades ago. Thanks to the right’s utter failure to defend against the left, we now have a large sector of the population almost completely ignorant of concepts relating to freedom and liberty. Half educated, ignorant of history, uncivil and vulgar they are ripe for easy exploitation by their socialist masters. The same situation exists in New Zealand.
America has been spared sinking to similar depths by means of its Constitution, which still allows some sectors of the population to resist the dead hand of socialism. This resistance has of late, due to the fraudulent election of Barack Obama, become more urgent and manifested itself by means of a revival of the Boston Tea Party. The Republican Party is now heavily under the influence of Tea Partiers, and is working to roll back legislation passed by Obama.
The citizens of the United Kingdom threw out Tony Blair’s extreme left government and replaced it with the far left Conservative party. Hoping for at least some relief. It has not come. While the Tea Partiers have brought change to the Republicans, and thereby to the government, the UK is still stalled deep in the thrall of socialism.
Alex Singleton writes in the UK Telegraph-
“To be born an Englishman,” Cecil Rhodes once claimed, “is to win first prize in the lottery of life.” These days, Mark Steyn says (in his recent brilliant article entitled Dependence Day) the prize goes to Americans, and whenever I think of Westminster, I can’t help thinking he might be on to something.
The UK and NZ both need a Tea Party for the same reason America needed it. The socialists dominate the political scene and those parties that should oppose that evil ideology are as deeply enthralled by it as the parties whose principles allow them to promote it. Electing the Tories in the UK and the Nationals in NZ has achieved nothing. Its time to abandon these stinking rotting hulks of parties that used to be, and seek democracy elsewhere.
