Tribal Predators Cannibalise Taxpayers

Tribal Predators Cannibalise Taxpayers

Libertarianz leader Richard McGrath said John Key’s fears of being a hangi-filler for the people of Tuhoe pale into insignificance next to the ongoing cannibalism of taxpayers by a multitude of freeloaders, including those moochers currently riding the Treaty of Waitangi gravy train.

“Today’s workers had nothing to with the colonisation of New Zealand. In many cases their ancestors did not even live here. Yet they are being made to endlessly fill and refill the gaping maw of Maori tribes who, despite endless full and final settlements, seem to want ownership of the entire country and its assets.”

“But Maori tribalists are not the only cannibals. Any New Zealander who believes their need constitutes a claim on the life of other innocent New Zealanders accepts the premise that it is right that some humans be consumed by others.”

“Anyone that receives more from the government than is taken from them should question the state’s power to remove their capacity for an independent existence, strip away their self-esteem, and turn them into handout addicts.”

“It’s time to put Treaty grievances to bed once and for all, and for New Zealanders to reclaim their dignity. Those who advocate redistribution of other people’s wealth tacitly endorse moral cannibalism, and there is a growing underclass of multi-generational welfare-dependent Labour-voting flesh-eating zombies which are not only tearing the social fabric, they are using it to strangle an ever-shrinking pool of net producers.”

“The Libertarianz Party opposes non-consensual cannibalism which is the hallmark of every state-run social welfare system,” said Dr McGrath. “We support voluntary forms of welfare where individuals are encouraged to take responsibility for their lives and actions The current system gives all the wrong messages and incentives.”

“It’s enough to make you vote Libertarianz!”
