I have been reading
alternative news (e.g. Instapundit)
for at least 18 years, with a particular interest in USA politics.
Let me tell you a recent story.
policies, such as the stimulus bill and Obamacare were very
unpopular. As a result, in the 2014 midterm elections the Republicans
gained control of Congress (Senate and House).
Republicans in the House voted to repeal Obamacare more that 50 times and at least one bill passed the Senate in 2015, but of course the President Obama vetoed it.
In 2016 Trump was
elected. With control over all three branches of government,
Obamacare repeal should have been as easy as 1 2 3 for the Republicans to achieve.
But they didn’t. They
also didn’t provide funding for the border wall Trump campaigned on.
Instead, in the midterm elections they lost the House.
Why couldn’t the Republicans achieve their aims? Why couldn’t they repeal Obamacare ( a bill passed the House but this time did not pass the senate). Why couldn’t they help Trump with his wall?
In a way Republicans did achieve their aims. See – they don’t work for the voters. They are bought and paid for by the special interests. Their aims are to stop Trump.There is only one UniParty in Washington.
$5.8 milllion per lawmaker per year buys a lot of resistance. The illusion of opposition can be maintained as most Republicans are safe to vote the way a true opposition would.
Back to New Zealand. The establishment know that when they attack our freedoms, we will need an outlet for our frustrations. A party that gives the illusion of opposition.
Act is the perfect fit for this role. They are allowed to talk about free speech and gun laws as much as they please to gather a following. However there is nothing in their policy online on the UN Migration Pact. This is because the public are largely in the dark about it, and it is best from an establishment point of view that it is not talked about.
So if you want to wake up the public – talk about the Pact – the establishment don’t want you to do this!
I have come to the same conclusion about ACT and their refusal to discuss the UN Migration Pact in public. Therefore we the public need to keep at them until they WILL discuss it.
