How come little Nuclear Free NZ, safely situated in the South West Pacific has become the focal point of Government agendas that were in most cases, not signalled at the last general election? Is this the way to ACT?

From out of right field NZers find themselves on the back foot as the Government maneuvers to place restrictions on the electorate and their freedoms, or on the other hand loosens them for exploitation.

Some see these actions as a blitzkrieg when most people are struggling to hold jobs, pay bills and give their children a good loving quality of life.

We are being asked to make submissions if we disagree with the agenda however, most find they are too tired at the end of the day to attend meetings, research their submissions and attend rallies to show solidarity.

Thus, the perception is that the Government is deliberately wearing the constituents down, but worse are only allowing 'we the people' a very short time span to respond back to the government.

Is this not strange? NZ has in most cases carried the moral high ground in local and world affairs, we have been seen as a fair country, an honest player, but where and who are the politicians who will stand in integrity and carry the flame of honest virtue working for the betterment of the community and the whole?

are 120 elected servants in Parliament, who will stand up to be countered? Watch this space!

And where are the Civic Elders, the Pillars of Society?

"Full Spectrum Dominance!" These below are some concerns that NZ is under pressure from:

DEMOCRACY: With the disbanding of 7 local Councils in Auckland by central Government as well as Environment Canterbury ... where is this heading?

Inclusive of this are 'we' going to experience:

1) More Genetic experimentation and possibly food grown throughout Aotearoa?

2) The Australian TGA and CODEX Alimentarius being enacted to stop natural health practitioners producing products and selling them here. Note: originally many National MPs supported health freedom, but the NZ bureaucracy is still forcing this agenda, compromising some genuine National MPs word.

3) Caving in and allowing whales to be killed globally because we are fearful of the Japanese yen?

The Security and Intelligence Bill being foisted upon a basically peaceful country which already has very secure borders?

5) Having overseas mining corporations extract minerals from conservation land, with minute royalties going to the NZ people?

6) Foreign Investment and countries overseas buying land into NZ, when NZers are not allowed to buy land in certain countries that are allowed to buy here.

7) Community owned assets like the airport and Auckland water being readied for sale to overseas ownership or 'contracted' to them for up to 35 years at a stretch.

8) Privatization of Prisons.

And more...

The list is growing, why is the National government steam rolling us with this agenda, when it has always been their stated aim to have as little government interference as possible?

These issues have to openly debated 'point for point' via local town meetings as well as TV but with a neutral host over the next 1 to 2 years, why the hurry and why give the electorate so little time to respond.

Are MP's not "our elected servants?"
