What Have I Done?

My little sister has over the recent years become more and more interested in politics, something which I certainly never expected. She has always been right wing, and I was convinced a staunch National Party supporter. Well now she has gone further right and even announced it on bebo:

In just over 3 months I will legally be able to drink and vote.

So come election time next year I will be casting my vote.

Who to vote for many of you may ask?

Well for that is not a very hard decision...

I am not maori so that rules out the Maori Party
I am against hypocricy so that rules out Labour
I am not a big fan of John Key so that rules out National
I am not into Green party policies so that eliminates the Greens
United Future and Destiny= not me

So that only leaves one real choice,

The party that strives for excellence, the party that has the best policies, the party that will strive to deliver a free market.

The only party totally worthy of my vote

The party is ACT!!!

I am intrigued to see how well she will rally support for them next year as she studies as Massey in Palmerston North, although considering she is doing a Bachelor of Applied Economics there will probably be people who will join her in supporting ACT.

Good for her. Small parties can be fun, and you get to know everyone.

A Bachelor of Applied economics?

I don't know, I think you should have to do an actual degree before you can learn to apply economics, and I'm an economist ;)

She could be Finance Spokesperson.

The worm turned for my sister when she first got paid and saw how much tax was taken off. Until then she thought politics was for geeks.

Then she realised why her older sister spent all those years in politics.

She votes ACT now too.
