There are a set of fundamental values that we all share, like the need for a society that is fair, that gives children a good education, looks after the sick and protects us from crime and poverty. Yet government consistently fails to deliver on these core values, such as when it cuts the number of nurses and Gardai or allows our country to fall backwards in education rankings.
Old Politics Failure
Government decision making is made unnecessarily complicated when politicians take their eye off the goal and onto special interests, bureaucracy and process. Instead of tackling bureaucracy and waste they kick the can down the road and seek to pander. Politicians fail to cast aside the white noise and focus on making government serve the needs of the people.
Politicians of the old parties are content to live in a world where people can die on trolleys in emergency departments for a lack of doctors and nurses, while elsewhere bureaucracy and waste flourish untouched.
Aaron believes that government has a moral duty to focus on delivering a better future for our people. Government has a duty to focus on improving the condition of services and the lives of citizens. Any government that makes a cut to services without having exhausted all options to eliminate waste, inefficiency or mismanagement is failing in its moral duty.
The Moral Government
- The principal of moral government is that all policies must be pursued to the better and direct attainment of the goals of a better society
- No special deals, no pandering and no lies are acceptable from government
- Not one tax should be imposed or one cut made before all reasonable effort has been made to take from the bureaucracy and inefficiency
