  • I am for a completely free market with extremely limited government intervention.
  • I am against affirmative action and anti-discrimination laws
  • I am for abolition the minimum wage and all other labor regulations
  • I am ardently opposed to welfare except in times of crisis or natural disaster, but I strongly support private charity, which is more efficient and fully voluntary.
  • I am for privatized health care. I think Medicaid and Medicare should be terminated gradually. I support voluntary, private HSAs as a transitional measure.
  • I am for private education and limited public education.
  • I am against Social Security. I support individual, private retirement accounts as a transitional measure.
  • I am strongly against corporate welfare, including subsidies and regulation
  • I am pro choice
  • I am for against all government contracts toward any marriages or civil unions. A married couple should be recognized as two individuals, just like everyone else.
  • I am against hate crime laws
  • I am against all international organizations.
  • I am not a nationalist
  • I am against smoking regulations
  • I am against anti-trust laws
  • I am strongly against eminent domain
  • I am again compulsory unionization and laws prohibiting employers from discriminating against unions
  • I am for a national currency.
  • I am for a complete separation of church and state.
  • I am opposed to military aggression and imperialism (I think all U.S. territories should be granted autonomy). I believe in noninterventionism and political isolationism.
  • I am against the draft.
  • I am for a generally open border policy.
  • I am for the abolition of all federal taxes and the establishment of a national retail sales tax
  • I am for a balanced budget amendment.
  • I am against any tariffs or restrictions on trade.
  • I think the government's only purpose is to protect individuals from other individuals
  • I think Abraham Lincoln and FDR were both the worst President in U.S. history, and Thomas Jefferson was the greatest.

There can be no free market, or the specific laissez-faire situation with government intervention. You either have the government simply exercise legislative tasks and direct social executive requirements or you have a socialist system, without the icon of the liberal market.

This so called financial crisis that we are currently enduring is the result of this uncontrolled free market and the most hypocritical part of the whole matter is the fact that the government intervention-free market now asks for government intervention.

Uncontrolled firearms ownership will result in complete chaos, considering the current social standards and ideals.

Censorship is quite a delicate matter. It should be defined first. But there is danger in that as well. I think Molotov would best fit right now, or at least the fervid jethro, whose return to particracy I still tremble.

Lol mate I never said you should fix anything. That was merely an attempt to create some sort of conversation. Damn I miss the old days of heated debate...

I'm not great at debating and you were right, I rethought it.

I am American. I'm not sure what that says of me.

Lately, many Americans don't feel proud of being Americans. Come on, be proud of your country! Americans are patriotic, warriors, never give up, we get what we want and we have fun doing it, we believe in democracy and will fight to the death to protect it anywhere in the world...

I got tired of typing, so that's a brief description of what being an American is.
