Ah I see. Yes we use that term.

Though that you might.  The modern liberals in the US are either a socialists or progressives but they stole the brand.

Oh I see. I have heard of all these terms and had an idea of what they meant. But as an outsider I do not use these terms here in my own country. No one does in NZ. Those terms are American. I was not aware a liberal could be either a socialist or progressive. So a liberal is a category and socialist or progressive would be considered a sub category within being a liberal. I get it now. I always thought a liberal was something different again.
Tara, I think the party that Roger Douglas founded after Labor booted him is basic basically a libertarian party.

You mean the ACT Party? I do not go with them as they tend to side with National and they have sort of blended in with them. Just as bad as our right wingers who are making things harder on the average kiwi as of late. NZ First however is a mix of both worlds (left and right) which tends to piss off both to my delight naturally!
