The Case for Royalties for Voters, by David Archibald. The riddle of why Haiti remains so poor has been answered as follows:
The answer has to do with the regime. It is a well-known fact that any accumulation of wealth in Haiti makes you a target, if not of the population in general, then certainly of the government. The regime, no matter who is in charge, is like a voracious dog on the loose, seeking to devour any private wealth that happens to emerge.
That sounds what Western Australia will be like under Brendan Grylls’ proposed big, new tax on iron ore.
It’s a big lesson from history, always conveniently overlooked by parasites eying off your stuff: Reduce private property rights, and poverty always follows.
The plunder: Iron ore train arriving at Port Hedland, WA
Brendan Grylls, the leader of the National Party in Western Australia, is a peculiar sort of agrarian socialist. He wants to redistribute wealth, as all agrarian socialists do, but his proposed extra tax on iron ore will destroy 2,400 jobs in his own electorate for the benefit of other electorates close to 2,000 km away. He is a mad and bad socialist. He must be stopped or otherwise the tax increases will just keep on coming.
If you are on the electoral roll in WA and want to preserve our standard of living, please consider signing up to Royalties for Voters, the only party which wants to not only stop Mr Grylls’ evil plan but also roll back all the stupid and unnecessary regulations that have built up over the years.
The result in the recent Orange by-election in NSW shows that the existing order can be overthrown, but only if there is another party which will do the right thing by the electorate. At the moment Royalties for Voters is our only hope –- sign up your whole household.
Read it all if you live in Western Australia.
