My vote in this year’s election, is up for grab’s. I am so far undecided which party to give it to. It is there for the taking if someone wants to have it. I have read and read about who is promising what in their policies, but for me, I need more than just words. I need to see the next possible leaders in action. I need more than the media presents with bias to us.
At five months out from the General Election, I am waiting for a party to convince me to vote with them. I need to hear and see with my own eyes some passion and commitment to the people of this country. I want to see the leaders of our political party’s show me honesty, integrity and transparency. A fighting passion to get things right for all, show me the drive to get there, show me leadership, convince me. We need a leader who will step up and inspire his/her party, party members, and the general public. I don’t want to vote for the best of an average or bad bunch, I want to know with certainty what I will get from my vote. I have questions I would like some answers to.
I want to see the next leader of New Zealand make rousing speeches that inspire, to stick up for the citizens, for those who really need it. To listen to what the people actually want, and then do that. I want to be able to trust them, for them to be transparent and honest and to convince me they are through their actions. I want to see passion for our future and emotion because you care, you really care. To show strong leadership, and to have the skills to use it. To have the dreams and knowledge together to help us become a country where we lead the world in innovative thinking, we invent things, we are achievers, we lead, we don’t follow. Let’s make this place great. It’s not too much to ask.
My vote is available if they want it. So I ask the leaders of each political party to convince me. Please tell me why I should vote for any of you? I really don’t want to waste my vote on voting against another party. I am choosing to vote with someone this time. The question is, who?
