ACT stands for the Association of Consumers and Taxpayers, not Associating with Communist Tyrants. While I have many friends in the National Party and see them as allies in the pro freedom cause, there are certain issues that make me real glad I chose ACT.
While National people must always play to the middle ground, ACT people can say what they think.
I am hard core anti the Communist Party of China. I think the CPC is as bad, if not worse than the Nazis.
Because I’m in ACT, I don’t have to go to conferences and listen to my leader pass on greetings from butchers and tyrants.
I have a Party leader who makes no bones about his contempt for the Chinese Communist Party and its murderous thuggery.

I spoke at the Falun Gong-organised protest against the Chinese Communist Party in Aotea Square at lunch time. It was a good crowd. They say over 7 million Chinese have publicly resigned now from the CCP. I hope so. And I hope it continues.
The banners had a brutal simplicity about them.
No sign of Keith Locke this year. He’s probably too busy protesting the USA. I understand from Keith that the communism that the Chinese practice is different to the one he advocates. But then it always is, isn’t it?
Communism/Socialism equals no private property equals dictatorship equals the most violent, tyrannical thug ending up on top.
History judges us not by which minor position we were able to secure, how much money we make or how many friends we have. History judges us by what stands we took, for what causes and how principled we were in the face of opposition, apathy and ridicule.
ACT is not perfect and I am much less so. However when I look back on my life I will know that I stood against the bloody dictatorship of the CPC and my chosen Party did likewise.
I did not politely clap and titter into my Merlot, while my party leader passed to me the best wishes of the Beijing barbarians.
