Extortion and Bribery are Crimes! Only for Some


Extortion and Bribery are Crimes! Only for Some

"Put your money where your mouth is Mr Williamson and resign." demanded Peter Osborne, the Libertarianz Associate Spokesman for Education Deregulation after hearing Morris Williamson calling for a major clean out of the National Party following their abysmal election results.

"Mr Williamson stated his regret that his party didn't have enough funds to send out 5000 pamphlets informing students that if elected his party would write off student debt over a five year period.' Osborne continues, "While making this very generous, belated pledge Mr Williamson would not have been sparing a second thought for those whom he was intending, with the use of force, to pick up this bill - the taxpayer."

Mr Osborne adds, "Later in the interview Mr Williamson mentioned the need to return the party back to a more principled philosophy and used this argument to back up his claim for a major clean out. Well Mr Williamson you have just shown yourself to be the hypocrite that you are and that you have no principles of your own. You were quite happy to buy the student vote with money that you had not earned nor had you a moral right to."

Mr Osborne offers some advice to The National Party, "It is not because of this or that billboard slogan - or the lack thereof - that caused your collapse. It was in fact your total lack of principle that caused your party to fall on its own sword this election. You must eject people of Mr Williamson's ilk as he has shown that he would drop his principles anytime. If you can't manage this then change your party colours to red."

Mr Osborne concludes " The Libertarianz founding principle is to uphold the rights of the individual. This means allowing EVERYONE to keep the money that THEY earn to spend wherever THEY wish; away from the grubby hands of politicians who would use this ill-gotten loot as a bribing tool to further their own interests. If students wish to go into debt to further their education, that is their choice and their responsibility. Libertarianz would outlaw the use of extortion across the board. This includes politicians and bureaucrats."

It's enough to make you vote Libertarianz!
