In some ways the Trumpish variety is closer because it stresses community over the self to a greater degree. In other ways the standard Republicanism is closer because it, or at least parts of it, attempts to make some argument about what good is. But neither is really conservative.

Even if it isn't necessarily more conservative, I would argue that the Trumpist/nationalist variety is far more illiberal.

By a vote of 5-0, this passes and moves on to the president for his signature or veto.

This goes back to the House since it was amended.

Oh, right, got it.

RINO Tomism is dead for now. Check back in a few decades from now.

Bring it.

Oh snap, its on now!


Grab the popcorn!

LOL.  I'm sure Cathcon and I would get along just fine IRL, and I'm perfectly fine with him being a member of a big-tent party I occupy; I'm not sure if he'd say the same about other "RINOTomists" (not to be confused with my monickers), however.  Anyway, my main "beef" with this whole conversation is that people like me are making any meaningful swing toward being permanent Democrats after 2016, which I just simply don't buy.

I mean, Cathcon voted for Kasich, so I'm not sure he's quite as hardline as he seems... Tongue

Public nudity is both a hygiene and moral hazard in the minds of most. Despite the morality issues (young children etc.) public nudity also leads to hygiene issues, as well as other concerns from exposure (injury for example)

Would these same hygienic issues apply to men, though?

Liberal Feminism

Liberal Feminism refers to feminist philosophy rooted in enlightenment principles. Its classical works were penned by thinkers such as Mary Wollstonecraft and John Stuart Mill. This type of feminism holds that men and women are each other’s equals and as such deserve equal rights. It is this type of feminism that people allude to when they say “feminism just means equal rights.”

As opposed to other forms of feminism, Liberal Feminism is individualistic (rather than group-based): Men and women deserve equal rights because both are individuals. Rights are granted to individuals, not genders or groups.

Liberal Feminism believes in equality of rights, not in equality of outcomes. For example, if a profession is dominated by only one gender, that does not necessarily mean that something is wrong: It could be the result of individuals making different decisions in life.

I can see the logic of it being considered a postie trait in someone you already like or are at least neutral towards. It doesn't make sense if your opinion towards them would be negative otherwise, though.

More bombs = peace obviously.

Who said anything about peace?
89  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Foreign Policy and Political Ideology on: April 07, 2017, 08:35:52 pm
The important distinction is multilateralism Vs unilateralism. The left overwhelmingly support the former, the right (from Paulites to Trumpets to McCain style aggressive interventionists) prefer the latter.

What about the anti-globalization left? I wouldn't exactly consider them to be multilateral....

Single-Payer, obviously.

I mean, I grew up in a place where the water was filed with arsenic, so I can't exatly call bottled water useless...

Meh, at least the alt-right is consistently awful, I'll give them that.
93  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Foreign Policy and Political Ideology on: April 07, 2017, 10:48:43 am
Not really. Unfortunately, most people seem to change their position on foreign intervention depending on who's in charge.
94  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Do you support the missile strikes on Syria? on: April 07, 2017, 10:40:28 am
Yes, something should have been done years ago. Only thing is I supported Obama when he wanted to go in and my political views don't change depending on who's in power.

Yeah, honestly I think that opposing intervention then but supporting it now is not a position that can really be justified.
95  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Do you support the missile strikes on Syria? on: April 07, 2017, 02:15:09 am
Frankly, I think we should have gotten involved much sooner. My main concern at this point is that we waited too long for any meaningful change to be made.

Hippy Centrist
You scored 52% economically responsible, 63% self-destructively free and 46% expressively free.


If it's behind closed doors, it's probably ok. They can even talk about it a little bit. Also, people need some help in the marketplace.

Economy (moderate): The economy is like any other natural system: it has advantages, but without safeguards, it can sweep us away. Supply and demand are good rules of thumb for guiding productivity, but must be tempered by safety nets for its upsets, and ceilings for its successes. Otherwise, we'd end in oligarchy.

Personal Freedom (liberal): If it only involves me, what right does anyone have to tell me no? A person should be allowed to be as stupid and harmful to themselves as they want, and letting the government go in, imposing majority morality, is dangerously tyrannical.

Expressive Freedom (moderate): We should strike a careful balance between governing the clash of viewpoints and allowing an ideological brawl. Some issues simply should be kept to private quarters (if there), regardless of how strongly people feel about them -- it can be dangerous and inappropriate in public. At the same time, being too restrictive isn't fair; this is supposed to be a free country. If it's not too dangerous or offensive, then let them share. Otherwise...
