Social Credit Party Is Back In The Political Game
PO BOX 15334 Dinsdale HAMILTON
THE FORMER SOCIAL CREDIT PARTY IS BACK IN THE POLITICAL GAME
A well attended meeting of Waikato based members have firmly put behind them the rifts, divisions and diversions of the parties decade long flirtation with the Alliance.
A renewed commitment to addressing the fundamental economic change needed to provide solutions to the wide range of issues affecting New Zealanders was apparent.
The new team elected realises it has a massive task ahead in rebuilding the party into the effective force it was in the 1970s and 80s, but as no other party is offering to promote the policies the country needs, the Democrats for Social Credit are determined to fill the gap.
Over the past 30 years our country has slipped back in virtually every economic and social indicator. Our essential infrastructure is recognised as being almost 3rd world and in dire need of rebuilding. Workers are being told to be more productive while they see their Aussie cousins' pay packets running at 32 percent ahead of theirs. Taxes and charges move ever upward as does the cost of keeping a family housed, fed and educated.
Those countries who did not engage in the dislocation and disruption of the so-called reforms of the 1980s and 90s have done better than we have and yet there are still the hard core politicians from both sides of the political divide calling for more of the same policies. The sad fact is that there is no party currently in Parliament willing or prepared to oppose them and indeed few politicians who actually have a clue as to what is needed to take our country into a future that all New Zealanders will want to feel part of.
Until the flawed foundation supporting virtually all our economic activity is changed the same issues that have made media headlines for the past 30 years will continue to be a millstone around the necks of future generations.
A new generation of economic reformers is emerging to continue the fight for a system focused on the needs, aspirations and expectations of all New Zealanders rather than one driven by the greed and avarice of those who own and benefit from the present 'money-go-round'.
