|Quotes:||If men want to oppose war, it is statism that they must oppose. So long as they hold the tribal notion that the individual is sacrificial fodder for the collective, that some men have the right to rule others by force, and that some (any) alleged "good" can justify it—there can be no peace within a nation and no peace among nations. | Ayn Rand. |

Employers will increasingly shift health care costs to their employees. Government budgets will be dominated by the need to finance the cost of Medicare and Medicaid benefits....
I contend that Islam is a dangerous, violent ideology. I can demonstrate this fact through the teachings of the Qu'ran and the Sunna, through the "ideal" example of Muhammad, contemporary Islamic teaching, through numerous historical examples, and other empirical evidence over the past 15 years....
Rule: Con must argue from an atheist standpoint, not a "God is good" standpoint. If you are too dumb to comprehend how this debate can be done with this rule, or you just won't follow this rule, THEN DON'T accept the debate. I will point out immediately that you have violated the rule and so for voters to vote for me, and then BLOCK YOU, and start the debate over again.
