So the election results were disappointing.

I think the worst things about it for me were:

  1. The overwhelming majority of New Zealanders value money over people. Perhaps a naive and maybe inaccurate generalisation of Nat voters, but I can't help but feel that when people say that they're voting for the party that will be "best for New Zealand", they mean what's best for me. Looking out for number one. That kind of makes me feel sad. I also know people who vote for Nats because of their "more Godly morals" that will supposedly lead the nation into prosperity. Godly morals ... don't make me laugh. That's a load of white middle class cow dung that doesn't wash with me.
  2. All the Pacific Island "celebrities" who endorsed the Nats this election. It's easy to love the people who will help your stacks of money go further, aye brown brother. What are you doing to help your struggling people? I think you've taken one too many concussions, uce. Your moral compass is out of alignment. Didn't understand that? It means, Monique says you're dumb.
  3. Last but not least, I felt really bad for Hone. Weird. There's something about Hone I really respect. I can't put my finger on it. Anyway, I found it sad when he lost Te Tai Tokerau.

Oh and last thing, I hate the fact that I live in Peter Dumb Dunne's electorate. UGH ... yuck yuck yuck ... I feel tainted. In case you haven't figured it out, for the record I did not vote for him, and he does not represent me.  As Scar put it, I'm surrounded by idiots.

And on that positive, cheerful and encouraging note, have a blessed week punks. Back to the mines I go, Donkey needs more gold.

Everything in this is exactly how I felt... I'm only just dealing with my disappointment now.

You know when you were a kid and you got that really faalii kind of frustrated when you felt like you just weren't heard and understood and you just wanna scream and throw a tanty? That was me that Saturday night.

We've spent two terms not being listened to by a government only to have them voted back in... with what is they call it? A landslide?

I know I'm on the most part considered a "just a ridiculous liberal socialist who lives with her head in the clouds" but at the end of the day I don't think some form of fairness and equality is the least I should expect from the government.

Sorry I know this is all mafu news but hey... lol

Hone forever! I still don't regret casting my vote for IM.
