    Try buying American, Chinese, or even Australian Citizenship.

    I donít blame him for the stupidly of the Government, but as Winston Peters has pointed out many times, we are becoming Tenants in our own Country.

    Read THIS even Russell Crowe canít get Australian Citizenship.

    In 1974, I met the criteria for an Investor's Visa and qualified for US Residency. Then it was a minimum of US$10K, will be much more these days.

    So what's the difference?

    I have very high hopes that seriousness is a reversible condition.

    Residency and Citizenship are two entirely different things Wal.

    Citizenship in NZ brings with it free Health Care, a Pension etc, all subsidised by the other taxpayers.

    I'm sure Mr Thiel has considered the benefits of Citizenship and acted accordingly.

    true, but residency is the 1st step to gaining Citizenship .

    Good to see we learnt nothing from the Kim.Com saga, and the one before that

    throw some money in the general area of politicians and doors magically open I guess .
    Why the secrecy with this latest one ?

    perhaps the aussies really dont want him. Cant blame them for that, but do we have to take him back otherwise ?
    perhaps he never actually applied

    I feel quite confident Mr Thiel will have his own private health cover. Given his net worth, I also strongly doubt our pension would be a contributing factor into his desire to become a citizen.

    If you have a quick read, you'll find that he donated 1m to the Canterbury earthquake recovery, among other things - http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/8878...ng-citizenship

    I think it's time to take your medicine and relax a little B.M. - let people like Peter Thiel continue to be successful and contribute to the community in peace, without nutjobs like you having a go at them
