FF! It's a shame he's going to lose. Sad

Vancouver would be the only tolerable one.

(cont) also, a government unwilling to solve social problems like infrastructure, research, etc... with faith that the invisible hand will take care of all our problems
Yes, Obama's neoliberalism is an issue to the Democratic base.

Obama's alleged excessive neoliberalism is an issue to anyone based in reality.

TBF, it's more accurate than calling him a kenyan communist muslim.

Actually, I pictured BRTD's counterpart as being an atheist yet culturally catholic Irsish metalhead who is a fan of South Park.

Live free or die! You're a government minimalist. You agree with the sentiment, "that government is best which governs least."

A basic government that maintains law and order and defends the nation from attack is all you're really looking for. You don't trust the government in your bedroom or near your wallet; either way it will probably put its hands where you don't want them!

You also feel that most people are perfectly capable of running their own lives without the government's help. And those who get into trouble can get help from their families or private charities.

Of course freedom is messy. The poor have little to no social safety net in your world. But, if they pull themselves up by their bootstraps, read some Ayn Rand, and get a damn job, life will be better in no time!

As for voting, you probably hold your nose when you get to the polls. For a while, Republicans catered more to your tastes than Democrats. But now that George W decided to turn the GOP into the party of Big Government, the Democrats aren't looking so bad. There is always the Libertarian Party, if you don't mind throwing away your vote.

If you scored under 10 on all four categories, then you, my friend, are an anarchist. You're probably taking this test from your heavily armed compound, waiting for the ATF and FBI to bust down the doors. Or you're trying to push a safety pin through your upper lip, while listening to the Sex Pistols. Don't forget to sanitize that thing!

Notable Minarchists are Thomas Jefferson, Milton Friedman, Ayn Rand, Barry Goldwater, and Ron Paul.

1944: Dewey/Truman
2016: Kasich/Weld

Are you going to write him in or something?
83  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of minorities who collaborate with the Alt-right on: June 07, 2016, 11:29:31 am
Alt-right? What is that? I can't find it on my keyboard. haha



I can find it on mine. Tongue
84  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: If you could split Presidential and VP vote since 1900... on: June 07, 2016, 11:28:16 am
Haha imagine if an Obama/Palin existed. What possible views could result in that?

People who don't like old white guys? Tongue
85  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Would you ever marry someone of the opposite party? on: June 06, 2016, 09:01:41 pm
Sure, why not?
86  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: If you could split Presidential and VP vote since 1900... on: June 06, 2016, 08:58:06 pm
Well, let me think...

2008: McCain/Biden
1996: Clinton/Kemp
1992: Bush/Gore
1988: Bush/Bentsen
1960: Kennedy/Lodge
1940: Roosevelt/McNary

So 6, I guess. FWIW, many of these have more to do with disliking one running mate than they do with liking the other one.

Honestly, I kind of like the idea. Seems like it would overall cheaper and more efficient than complex bureaucratic welfare schemes.

Damn, I was hoping this thread being bumped meant that Clarence was back. Sad
93  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Are you a gun owner? on: June 05, 2016, 12:54:00 pm

Some surprising things on that list. I mean, the Bay Area doesn't make it but Dallas County, TX and Maricopa County, AZ do? Not what I would have expected.
94  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: DWPerry mentioned in Vox! on: June 05, 2016, 11:30:45 am
Is Vox the new ingress or Sneakers O'Toole? I'm asking since BRTD can't shut up about it.

It's my favorite website to read at work.

Vox is forever tainted.

It's far better than any of those mainstream news "serious" sources. Plus it at least makes a bit of an attempt at all liberal, all the time.

Thanks for telling us what websites to avoid.

Actually you'd probably like it, since it's most liberal on any issues relating to sexuality. Although I suppose you'd oppose something like "Give free birth control to all women" on libertarian economic principles instead of social conservatism.

95  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Do you think Dubya would be considered too liberal by today's GOP? on: June 05, 2016, 11:24:41 am
W would be considered too economically liberal while Goldwater would be considered too socially liberal (like me lol)

I realize you are just using the fiscally conservative/socially conservative meme, but for some reason it really bugs me when people use the word "economically liberal" in that way. This is economic liberalism, which is almost the opposite of how many people seem to use the term.

Uh, you guys aren't going to endorse the ticket that has a member of your party running for Vice-President?
