Protect Freedom from Democracy - De-cretinise the Vote!
SOLO-NZ Press Release: Protect Freedom from Democracy—De-cretinise the Vote!
December 2, 2011
The Green Party, chief beneficiary of contemporary culture's Cretinisation of Everything, is calling for an inquiry into declining voter turnout, notes SOLO Principal Lindsay Perigo. MP Gareth Hughes is bemoaning that turnout reached a record low of only 68.8 percent this election, and wants the Justice and Electoral Committee to "address the issue."
"I would agree that 68.8% is a calamity," concurs Perigo. "It's far too high. Churchill, who supported democracy as 'the worst possible system—apart from all the others' said the best argument against it was a five-minute conversation with the average voter. Modern TV vox pops reveal the average voter to be incapable of a five-second conversation, or even of rudimentary articulation. Most sound like Metiria Turei (although at least she can manage words).
"When, pre-election, I saw pubescent zombies being interviewed about why they intended not to vote, I was simultaneously relieved that they wouldn't be adding to the Labour or Green tally ... and aghast that more energetic cretins would be.
"I call upon the Justice and Electoral Committee to address the issue of too many airheads voting and thus boosting Labour's and the Greens' representation artificially. Only humans should be allowed to vote—and only humans who pass literacy tests, linguistic and political.
"Longterm, individual rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness must be enshrined as absolute in a constitution—and thus placed beyond the grasp of half-wits. Freedom must be protected from democracy.
"Disenfranchising cretins, then de-cretinising the franchise: this ought to be a priority for any new freedom party such as is now being widely mooted to emerge from the ruins of ACT," Perigo concludes.
