Since Oct 13, 2004
As you might guess, I'm an Australian living just outside the second largest city in Australia, Melbourne.
My political hero is The Great Ronald Reagan (God rest his soul), and I'm a great admirer of George W. Bush.
I'm a member of the Liberal Party of Australia. This, I know, may come as a shock to Americans, but in Australia "Liberals" are the main conservative party. We have recently been re-elected for a forth consecutive term and our leader, Prime Minister John Howard, has now become the second longest serving Prime Minister in the nation's history - surpassed only by the Liberal Party founder Sir Robert Gordon Menzies who led Australia for 17 years until 1966.
I am very fond of the United States, as are most Aussies, and keen to participate in political discussions on what is happening in the US. Until recently, I have been an enthusiastic contributor to the 'New York Times' Abuzz forum but, sadly, that has now folded. I look forward to joining with you good people as we "chew the fat" across the Pacific Ocean. What more can I say but "Four More Years!!!!"
