    Will the United States pull the rug on New Zealand?
    The answer is no. They might polish the lino a bit harder and hope that I execute a rather unseemly glide across it.”

    David Lange

    Lange also joked of Sir Robert Muldoon,
    “I wouldn’t call the Prime Minister gutless. That’s all that’s left of him.”

    Natan Sharansky stated in his book, The Case for Democracy: The Power of Freedom to Overcome Tyranny & Terror, “Can a person walk into the middle of the town square and express their views without fear of arrest, imprisonment, or physical harm? If he can, then that person is living in a free society. If not, it’s a fear society.” <b></b><i></i><u></u>

    Sir Robert David Rob Muldoon, GCMG, CH, PC, sometimes nicknamed “Piggy,” served as the 31st Prime Minister of New Zealand from 1975 to 1984, as leader of the governing National Party.

    His most famous quotation is-
    “New Zealanders who leave for Australia raise the IQ of both countries.”

    Only a bit less clever was,
    “New Zealand was colonised initially by those Australians who had the initiative to escape.”

    Without work, you cannot feed anyone, but regardless how hard you work, without practicing capitalism, there is no wealth creation for prosperity and security reserves.
