Put Contraceptives to Better Use, Paula

PRESS RELEASE

Put Contraceptives to Better Use, Paula

“As pathetic as it is, Paula Bennett’s attempts to encourage mothers on the DPB to use contraceptives is a classic example of the state trying to fix a problem that was caused squarely by the state,” said Peter Osborne, Libertarianz spokesman for Social Welfare today.

“It is the law of unintended consequences. Although how those who introduced the welfare state could not foresee the problems that their meddling would cause is beyond me.”

Osborne continues, “State controlled welfarism is a cancer. The wide spread destruction it has caused far outweigh any benefits. If their goal was to dissolve a desire to be productive and set individual goals then they have succeeded. If their goal was to ensure that children were to be born under an inescapable sense of worthlessness generations on, then they have succeeded. If their goal was to assist in the indebtedness of our nation, they have succeeded. It is truly the worst and most destructive social experiment to be foisted on all of us.”

Mr Osborne concludes, “The realm of helping those in need is not the legitimate place of government. It is mine and yours as individuals under our own steam and by our own choice. Only in this way can those who receive be understanding of the effort people make on their behalf and the expectation on the receiver to strive for self autonomy. The welfare state must go. Ms Bennett would do well to hand her condoms out to her fellow, meddlesome politicians so we would no longer have to endure the next generation of their ilk.”

Greens: Oil Drilling Face-Off With Labour

The plan is the second component of the Party’s environmental priority this election: Rivers clean enough to swim in again, and beaches safe from oil spills.

The Green Party loves New Zealand and will create a cleaner environment where our beaches remain open for swimming, not closed for oil spills.

The key policy points in the Green Party’s plan to protect our beaches from oil spills are to:
1. Prohibit deep sea oil drilling;
2. Implement compulsory shipping lanes for coastal shipping;
3. Build Maritime New Zealand’s oil spill response capability; and
4. Introduce a stronger legal framework so that when accidents do happen, the New Zealand taxpayer does not have to pay for the clean-up. More>>
