I had to blog this after seeing how low the McCain/Palin team are prepared to go ...

I have friends in the States, I want to be able to visit them. At the moment, I have to apply for a visa as a New Zealander, as of early next year, I have to submit to fingerprinting and I have to come in knowing I can lose my laptop and other equipment due to Homelands Security measures.

I'm pretty sure it's simpler to get into Iran or any other country in the world.

If I could vote, it would be for change and the Republicans look like they're offering the same old, same old.
