    main reason i can think of is there a lot of difference between the different US parties, where as in the UK the labor and conservative party are not really that different. our conservative party will still be considered left wing in the US.
    Actually, I'd guess it's the opposite. Here in the U.S. there are very few real differences between the parties, so people who support one or the other feel compelled to make a show of it, almost as if they're trying to convince themselves that they are distinct, and that their vote does matter. OTOH, from what I understand about, say, Germany or Sweden, which government you vote for will have actual, noticeable, real-world effects.

    Neoconservative is an oxymoron isn't it?

    I dislike that term lol. Neocon...I heard it way too often.

    Liberals in America, you know how you hate the term commie being associated with your ideology. Yeah, I feel your frustration.

    See, I answered a few foreign policy questions the best I could given the four answers available. That's why it labeled me as a neocon.
