“We will not be able to successfully defend corrupt or crony capitalism. Honest capitalism – what we cherish, is under attack every day (…) by special interests and PACS inside the swamp of Washington DC. You know, sometimes it feels like it doesn’t really matter which political party wins the election, because in Congress, the winner is too often the special interest that shuttles around the most campaign donations.”
You might be forgiven for thinking the above comes from an Elizabeth Warren before she decided to take PAC money, or from a centrist Democratic Party representative sidling to the left. But you’d be wrong.
In actual fact, the words are taken from a speech that Matt Gaetz made at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Maryland this week where he swore off taking PAC money.
That’s a big deal given that it’s coming from a Republican.
Anyone else thinking it’s time for a few politicians in New Zealand to wake up and smell the coffee?
Liberalism and all its attendant corruption is getting squeezed from both the left and the right. It’s water under the bridge, but New Zealand could have been ahead of the game if idiots and bad actors hadn’t lined up to take Cunliffe and Turei out at the knees.
