Here’s one image that summarises everything that is wrong with the greens (no, lack of capitalisation is not by error).
Population of NZ roughly 4.5M, fraction of that employed.
Population of Australia roughly 24.5M, fraction of that employed.
Thing is our ‘employed’ fraction is bigger or more likely triple the population of NZ.
So, if NZ can do it, so can we… Really? Can we? At what cost? Where are we going to get the money? Are they willing to take a 50% or 60% pay cut? Sell their properties and donate this to the unemployed? No? Didn’t think so! Maybe, we will be paying 50%+ tax after all of this? Maybe 60%? Are we ready for that? I know they preach socialism, but hey, only on the surface, right, as long as it doesn’t impact them.
- Poorly planned
- Short sighted
- Ignorant of all other factors
- Enormous cost to the population, where cost outweighs the reward.
This is pretty much how green’s policies work. Heart is certainly in the right place. Unfortunately the brain is missing. Nothing to do with guns, nothing to do with hunting or national parks, I dislike them because of that, but it’s not even a drop compared to what they are and how damaging they are, when you look at what’s proposed with a cool head and just a drop of common sense.
Although, I am not sure the heart is in the right place, to be honest, you have to be legally retarded to think for a moment that this could work in Australia. I am sure they know, but hey, nothing wrong with getting votes by praying on the vulnerable, by giving them hope, other pollies do it, so why not them.
