Just wondering what Lee Vandervis' handle is here;

Of course it may be that he's signed up to Tremain's website but I rather think that the timing indicates that he's signed up here instead.


Lee?

Currently reading a book by a Lancaster bomber pilot in England at the beginning of WWII, who describes how he and other young lads couldn't wait to join up to "fight for democracy", along with New Zealanders and Aussies. What has happened to us?

I don't blame the boys who fought, but the myths of WW2 and what it was really about should be examined by everyone who seeks to understand the world we live in today. As General Patton said "we fought the wrong enemy." WW2 was used as the pretext for demanding that all nations give up their national sovereignty and saw the creation of a "super state." The so-called "enemies of democracy" today ('democracy' being a euphemism for whatever is in the US self-interest) are really just those who kept their sovereignty.

Is it a white mans dilemma or our countries dilemma, depends which side of the fence one sites on, either side it is still a dilemma that will be unsatisfactory to both sides, the cake has been baked, a small number of our society love it and want more if not all of it, the vast majority hate it but are to frightened to admit it, we will end up with the crumbs that we will be forced to enjoy, like eating live maggots out of a fly-blown sheep's arse, hey we can't complain at least we will be getting our daily protein needs, fit the new world order perfectly.

There was no use by date in the Treaty. And any changes to citizenship should be telegraphed transparently not done in the dead of night on the 24th December 1949 (this is purely illustrative of a point rather than fact),

Yes pretty much what Chantelle Baker found with her street interview yesterday. All people approached were pretty ignorant of the important issues, thought the government had done a great job and most were only concerned about how policies affected them.

I never really knew until a couple of years ago when I first sat up and started to take notice how many governments in the past were responsible for making totally wrong decisions such as all the Treaty claims( some of them apparently totally unjustified), UNDRIP, the decline in our health service to the detriment of all these woke projects, the self-interest of politicians and a National MP, namely Chris Findlayson working for both the government and Maori interests! I…

A strong politician who can make the right decisions now, today, in the present, not some imaginary time in the future.

Someone who can endure a bit of flak now so we can move on peacefully as a country. No more treaty settlements, no more wasteful spending, all the while looking after the vulnerable.

That is what I would do if leading the country. It would be extremely uncomfortable of course but sometimes the right course of action is.
