Simple exercise, should we keep it civil, but Politically what would you consider yourself to be, what issues and what side of the issues are most important to you.
So let me start this off.
I am a Libertarian Constitutionalist, simply put I believe in big limits to what the government can do, and we as individuals should be free to do as we please (figuratively speaking)
From a New Zealand perspective these would be the most important issues.
Complete constitutional reform, Constitutional law is my weird little hobby, and I have studied the New Zealand Constitution and how it came to be in depth, and have no grounds to actually believe that the New Zealand Government has any lawful authority to exist.
So a full constitutional reform is needed. I'd like to see New Zealand ditch the monarchy and have a directly elected President while largely ceremonial would have numerous powers to keep government in check. I would also replace the Westminster system, as Australia has shown time and time again, that your Prime Minister can be kicked out of office changing the entire direction of the government is ludicrous, the Prime Minister and deputy again should be democratically elected so that can not simply be deposed by their party, I'd almost rather ban political parties all together.
Also I would like to see major Judicial Reform, in the sense that by large the belief of our judiciary is to uphold the law... not be a check on the lawfulness of government.
Now I am not economist, and am not a huge fan of Minimum Wage, but with inflation so high, I don't know what steps could be taken to lower inflation, but until such a time, a Minimum wage would need to stay.
As Much as I am for the free market, I do not trust it. Corporations ruined capitalism, and am much more a fan of Individual Capitalism than Corporatism.
I'd would decriminalize all drugs, but would increase penalties crimes committed under the influence.
Now if I was American, Some of the points I would still take.
But I would focus on Defense of the homeland, not being an global empire. I would be assassinated after I began to cleanse the US government of the greatest threats to National Security. NSA, CIA, TSA would be reigned in, or eliminated all together.
Simplify the Tax Code, Simplify almost everything. Grant statehood to DC, or amend the US Constitution, so that full voting rights and voice are given to residents of the territories, so their Congressmen actually have a vote in congress... as they are not states they are granted only one senator, not the two states get.
Also I'd amend the constitution to reverse congresses powers for war. Really only half need to vote to go to war, but a super majority is required for peace?
I think I started rambling a lot..... but that is what is important to me right now. Where do you stand and what issues are most important to you.
