This is where I usually fall in these kind of quizzes.
On the American spectrum I fall on the democrat side of the spectrum. But that's only because issues such as abortion and religion are political in the USA.
From a New Zealand perspective I'm usually on the centre-right.
John Key is near to being my perfect PM in terms of his political views. He's socially liberal, economically conservative, doesn't want to ditch the monarchy or the flag, and runs a pretty unintrusive government. He has a good sense of humour & isn't afraid to laugh at himself. I really hope he's in power for at least another term.

- Interests: Politics, New Zealand
The catalysis for this blog was my dislike for the Clark'n Cullen Labour govt - particularly their transgressions during the 2005 general election & treatment of then opposition leader Don Brash.
However, I'm not anti-Labour & consider myself a political moderate. I'm looking forward to someday voting for a Labour Party which isn't all about 'tax and spend', is happy with NZ's current constituational arrangement (i.e. keeping the monachy), and isn't controlled by the unions. I won't hold my breath.
I'm an avid reader of Kiwiblog.
Comments & emails are welcomed.
