    Don’t laugh.

    We already have abortion for unwanted babies.And there’s lots of talk about euthanasia for elderlies.

    In the meantime there is no shortage of advocates for illegal and mass immigration and protecting their “human right” to bludge off tax paying citizens.

    But, you can be saved.
    Ah not by the God botherer’s but by the taxman.

    Simple solution: bring in a cost neutral variable pension age, initally starting from 60 to 70, where people can choose to start receiving it earlier at a lower rate or later at a higher rate, and then move the ages up by 6 months every year. It doesn’t screw over people who have been planning to retire in the next year or so, it actively helps groups like labourers and Maori who statistically die earlier as they can actually receive something, but it starts to decrease the burden on the taxpayer (something we have to do).

    The reason why China is becoming an economic powerhouse growing at 7% to 8% per annum is that they do not have a welfare state.

    If we want to become an economic powerhouse we need to end the welfare state in this country.

    There is no reason why we should tax money of the poor and the working class to pay the super to the elderly who are the richest segment of the population.

    What kind of a right-wing, uncaring, capitalist country is that?
