A Five Point Programme was offered by moi (see here and sumarised below) to which Helen swiftly gave her very promising views. Onya Helen. No word yet from Andrew, although I know he's been visiting here. Hi Andrew. And ACT candidate Lindsay Mitchell, who has been campaigning on Point Five for some years has indicated on her blog that's she's also enthusiastically behind Point Two. "It is the job of the state to protect people from each other - not themselves," she says. And so it is.
So who's next? Can we help to overturn ACT's compulsion axis from without? Will we ever see 'ACT: the Libertarian Party'? Here's a summary of the offered Five Point Programme (fleshed out here in greater detail):
1) Abolish the RMA, replacing it with property rights, and common law means to protect them.Sign up below, or on your blog, or make your voice heard in emails to your ACT friends, candidates and MPs, or just at your next ACT or Act on Campus meeting.
2) End the War on Drugs.
3) Privatise, privatise, privatise.
4) Abolish the Treaty of Waitangi, superseding it with a rights-protecting constitution.
5) End the DPB. You can do it in just three years.
