This election really is a no-brainer. Seymour is going to win Epsom, so a vote for ACT will always count. It will support a National Party led government against the coalition of nutcases that make up every other political party.
I won’t do a long list of endorsements, but here’s what it looks like: Vote for Labour’s Kelvin Davis in Te Tai Tokerau to eradicate Internet Mana once and for all. Vote for David Seymour in Epsom. Vote for Stuart Nash in Napier, because God knows the Labour Party will one day be in power again and it will need some sane people in it. Otherwise, vote for your local National Party stooge. But pretty please, Party Vote ACT.
Why not just vote National? Well, because they will end up doing some grubby deal with the CCCP or NZ First. ACT will not be part of such a thing with Winston, so you know your vote for them will support Centre-Right government and will not end up supporting a disaster like the one we had between 1996 and 1999. To just two tick National would give them carte blanche to join up with these frauds. Vote ACT, a vote that will always count, and always get a better quality of MP than whoever is #55 on National’s list, and you will avoid sanctioning anything stupid.
ACT is the only game in town where they are not trying to bribe you with your own money. If you want good government that does not spend more than it earns, that eliminates waste and pointless programmes, and gives people greater freedom and more individual responsibility, then ACT is your only option. Like all politicians, they are going to suck and disappoint you, but probably a lot less than just voting National. Let’s get as many ACT people in as we can. Vote ACT!
