Yesterday was the 2014 election. It was my first election, so I wanted to do it right. I paid attention to the political party coverage via TV and the New Zealand Herald. I kept an eye on the major parties. I even did the political compass to see which party I most agreed with. I did my research and ignored all the petty politicians. I made my decision and voted for the party with the best policies.
So that was my party vote taken care of. However, for my electorate vote...I had no idea who I could vote for! I went to an information evening about the candidates for my area. Speaking of my area...I'm in Wattle Downs, which is part of Manurewa. So why am I voting for the Papakura electorate?
Anyway, I made my choice and I was happy. I had confidence in the people I was voting for.
Then last night, the results started coming in.
National is going to run this country into the ground. The poor people will get poorer and the rich people will get ridiculously richer. John Key is only looking out for himself and his rich mates.
WHEN ARE THE SHEEPLE GOING TO WAKE UP????
It's time we took a page out of Egypt's book and revolt against the government.
