    I'm just curious about the fast ones that parties in power are trying to pull before a lot of countries go into voting season.

    In NZ, the government for some reason started a referendum to change our version of Democracy into another, more unfair version. At the moment we use the MMP voting system, which is the fairest version, where each party get a a share of seats based on the ratio of votes. Basically, our new choices if NZ changes is one party gets a lot more seats than they should, and the others get hardly any.

    Democracy!

    Manipulation.

    It allows for more of a regional representation, and less of a country-wide one.

    A regional seat at 51% of the vote might be lost in the larger total.

    The Illuminati are at it again. ;)

    NZ doesn't have the Illuminati. We have middle aged white men.

    Where do the Maori and Mana come into the count? To my mind it's time to ditch the Maori seats and stay the course with MMP. And the middle aged white men better not plan on swimming at the Mount any time soon.

    Well. yes I'd give you that the're a distinct off white and our parliamentarians appear to practice a strange form of reverse racism. To stay with MMP seems the better of two evils.

    I'm hoping that people will misunderstand the question and just vote no out of fear for change.

    It works sometimes. :D
