You LIKE Barack?

I'm so confused... why? WHY?

He is pro abortion, pro gay marriage and gay rights, and he's only been a politician TWO years- not even long enough to vote on ANY bills- so we don't even really know who he is or what he stands for.

All we know is that he's charming. But for me, that's not enough and the little things i do know really really concern me.

In America, if he continues his stand for civil unions it will become illegal for a minister to refuse to marry a gay couple if they ask him to and the minister will be arrested. Abortions will be able to occur for under 16 year olds without parental consent. I'm anti abortion all together, but the thought the a government thinks they can parent a child better than a mum or dad just makes me sick.

The media has made him look fresh and understanding and it's easy for him to come across that way but when you really break it down it's big big concern that he is now the most powerful man in the world.

And with him New Zealand is no longer an allie of America- but with McCain we would be.

And moving on to New Zealand politics- National all the way. Votes for smaller parties are a waste of time- you have to be strategic and vote in a way that gives to National to take from Labours power.

And Helen is pretty much the same as Obama but you can add to abortion and civil unions the acceptance of prostitution as a job and parents not being able to discipline their children with a smack.

All in all, people would label me a conservative when it comes to politics, but i'd take that. Anything that takes from the values that Jesus has does not rest well with me.
