NZ politics

The Maxim Institute is not just a collective of All In The Family types who know how to copy and paste, they occasionally come up with some useful tools if you like your politics in a traditional black-or-white kind of way (akin to the "You're either with us or agin us" Bush mode). They offer a handy page where you can check you own morals against the political voting patterns in conscience issues in the last parliamentary term.
My result just reinforced the correctness of my vote: most Green MPs voted as I would have done. ACT and Labour members also agreed with me in large measure. And the usual suspects from National, NZF and United Future are really beyond the pale in my moral framework.
