Capitalist Candidate Denounces Socialist Stupidity

Capitalist Mayoral Candidate Denounces Socialist Stupidity

"Sam Kingi of the Anti-Capitalist Alliance -- who slams charity and claims that the increased demand faced by Christchurch City Mission is a 'consequence of capitalism' - is quite simply deluded," says Libertarianz Mayoral Candidate for Hamilton Tim Wikiriwhi.

Wikiriwhi puts the blame of increased demand for charity squarely upon the shoulders of the socialist Welfare State. "Poverty increases in proportion to the restriction of free enterprise, which is why the Soviet Union collapsed in poverty while America enjoys the highest standards of living. South Koreans live the good life while their North Korean neighbours die under tyranny and starvation. It is the height of folly to blame all the world's ills on capitalism and to ignore the clear evidence of Marxism's failure."

Mr Wikiriwhi says the increase in homelessness cited by Kingi is the inevitable consequence of eighty years of ever-increasing socialist regulation and taxation. He says he is "sickened" when observing the likes of Sam Kingi blindly advocating increasing the very evils that generate poverty and homelessness!

"It is time for Kingi and his cohorts to recognise the time for the extinction of Homo Socialismus has come!"

Mr Wikiriwhi applauds the charity work of Christchurch City Mission, and explains that he and his fellow Libertarianz will fight the socialist agenda that makes the Mission's work both so difficult and so necessary.

Yet the desire for change was in the majority, across the country..>>>More
