    Libertarians are idiots. They are a bunch of racist lunatics who do not understand how the modern economy and international relations work. They are mostly conspiracy theorists who think minorities are taking over their country. They actually believe in free market solutions, which is ridiculous.

    Remember when people in America were payed 1 dollar a day work 12 hours in a sweat shop? When 8 year olds worked 10 hours in dangerous coal mines? When monopolies charged ungodly prices for necessary products because they had the market cornered? What caused that ... free markets. What was the solution ... government intervention.

    Conservative (mainly because Labour has been consistently rubbish, and the Lib Dems aren't getting anywhere).

    Our voting system in the New Zealand government works quite differently to the US - our general elections work on a MMP [Mixed Member Proportional] electoral system. So we have two votes, a party vote and electorate vote. The main two political parties are Labour, which are in power right now, and National Party. We have minor parties such as the Maori Party, Green, ACT, NZ First and so on and so forth but none of these will ever get more than 10% of the votes really. The electorate vote is for the electorate in your region. So I'm in the Greater Wellington Region. We have an election every 3 years which is pretty often, so this year in 2008 will be the next election, the date has yet to be specified. A funny thing, the US election is taking weeks to complete, whilst on election day in New Zealand we're able to get everyone's votes in within less than one day and inside of the same week we'd have the results.

    From the looks of things and recent polls National Party seems to pull ahead, but both are quite tight in the ratings. Basically, National Party's focusing on tax cuts [which we desperately need] and Labour is dishing out some cock and bull claims about benefits for families...

    The elections here in the US take so long because the country is so friggin' huge! Even the US Armed Forces Bases in other countries get to vote!

    Anyone these days can sneak a gun onto a plane, kill the pilot, hijack the plane, and crash it into a building.

    Yes they can. I'm sure I could buy a small handgun that I could build on site, and get into a plane with it. But that's cause I'm a young white female. They never stop be at the airport, even if I am an immigrant.

    Conceal the gun in lead-lined casing, and you can do just about anything on that plane. Airport security takes hours to get through, yet it doesn't work very well. Sure, it might catch a few amateurs, but when you're dealing with terrorism, you can't take chances.

    God just stereotypes everyone because he knows he doesn't have any friends but hides it.

    Stereotypes only exist because the majority of those being stereotyped act stereotypical.

    You do realise that lead-lined cases are defined as "highly suspicious" by airport security, right?
