Re: Afhghanistan and Global Perspective
A person of integrity waits until he knows the truth before speaking. You're just spreading Republican panic points.
I do not knowing spread Republican panic points. I spread what I hear from Libertarians. Libertarians are not Republicans.
From their website:
quote:
As Libertarians, we seek a world of liberty — a world in which all individuals are sovereign over their own lives and no one is forced to sacrifice his or her values.

We believe that respect for individual rights is the essential precondition for a free and prosperous world, that force and fraud must be banished from human relationships, and that only through freedom can peace and prosperity be realized.(...)When you pay taxes, do you do so voluntarily? Or do you do so because you are forced to do so?

If you don’t pay your taxes, what will happen? Will you be fined further? Harassed by the IRS or other government entities? Jailed?

The Libertarian Party is fundamentally opposed to the use of force to coerce people into doing anything. We think it is inherently wrong and should have no role in a civilized society.

Thus we think that the government forcing people to pay taxes is inherently wrong.

Libertarians advocate for voluntary exchange, where people are free to make their own choices about what to do with their lives, their time, their bodies, their livelihood, and their dollars.

If Americans want to give money to the government for one reason or another, they should be free to do so. If Americans prefer to spend their money on other things, then they should be free to do that also.

Re: The Coming Republican Apocolypse
How is it that Republicans are a minority and yet have that much political influence?? First of all they are not as appealing as they used to be. Second they will never let go of Trump.

Wht cant the Democrats find a candidate that conservatives could grow to like?

Re: a large percentage of the population simply does not or will not actually think
