I would rather live in the US with all the apparent NON-freedom we have, than anywhere else in the world... with their definition of "freedom" and all the opportunities and diversity that do NOT come with it.

My two trips to the States left me feeling very grateful for the freedoms we enjoy in NZ, especially our employment law and the access we have to enjoy the land, rivers, lakes and ocean regardless of wealth or status.

My 5 trips to NZ have left me thankful for the girlfriend I met there, the sweet female accent, and some very nice scenery.... though she was anxious to come to the US

She didn't mind giving up your freedoms I guess.

Nobodies perfect.

But as for you... 2 trips is DEFINITELY enough to fully understand what all is available in a nation and make educated judgements of said nations !


I guess some things just stick out like dogs balls.

And what in the world are you talking about with the "only the rich can enjoy the parks" BS ?!

I never mentioned parks.

A New Zealander's birthright is freedom of access to almost every river, stream, lake front, beach front, you name it. You can fish, hunt, fly your plane, ride your bike, do whatever you like with very few areas restricted to the general public.

As I understand it, the USA (and the UK for that matter) has much of the best areas tied up in private property with no default right of access.

Though I do note a recent upsurge in Rich Americans and British trying to violate our rights when they purchase property here.

They don't get very far with that attitude though.
