The left have had an iron grip on political power for nigh on four decades maybe longer. As each decade has gone by, they have re-positioned and strengthened that grip to where today they have almost a complete stranglehold on New Zealand. To the point where the opposition party that gave NZers cause to rejoice upon election day is a major disappointment today, only doing the same work as their predecessors, but with a much smarter public face.
There is only one force that will dislodge that grip and that force is unity.
We must unite under the banner of Conservatism with one simple message-
The rationale is so simple. Small government means low taxes. Low taxes means there is no money for the left, who have only risen to power by means of redirecting taxpayer funds to their political mission. Cut off the money supply and the left will die like a vampire denied blood.
Therefore there is no profit in fighting amongst ourselves and we cannot afford either to ignore or make turn away the force of Christianity, probably the most powerful political group outside the umbrella of the Progressive left. We need every soldier available.
The left have the government, they have the bureaucracy, they have the union movement, they have the education system, they have local government, they have the entertainment sector and they have the information media. They even have a large part of the church. Most saddening of all, they have our culture and probably even our offspring.
Defeating this huge monolithic force is no easy task, but it can be done.
We must unify as Conservatives and be clear that anyone unwilling to so unite is helping the left. Bickering and picking at each other will weaken the small force we already are and make us even easier meat to the left. We must remain united and grow, and work assiduously to achieve our simple objective of small government.
Unity will eventually give us the beachhead we need to begin the long fight back and a chance to retake all the lost ground. Without it we will remain defeated and ineffective.
