Naw, the closest I ever got was 97% agreement with both YYW and whiteflame, but I've since diverged from my more liberal roots.

Many people don't have everything filled in but I don't remember bluesteel and I disagreeing on any of the big issues i.e. most of our disagreements/the one debate we had all winded up being very "small" issues.

It is actually pretty hard to find disagreements among educated people on the things that are listed in the big issues page.

Ive only ever found people at 60-65% since I range from hard liberal on most issues to pretty conservative on a handful of others

Not yet. I've gone through a my friends list, seeing if I could find anyone, and the closest I've found is 92.5%, which is actually surprising considering that several of my views are markedly different from my main political persuasion. It's made stranger by the fact that the group of people closest to me strike me as very different people with very different views, though admittedly, the Big Issues aren't really a great cross-section of our political views. All the same, I'll provide a list of those closest to me, in order of closest to furthest (with the furthest still being over 88%):

I'm the most conservative person on DDO (when using the no true conservative argument). You're conservative on 48% of issues when I look at your Profile. Since I'm 100% conservative, this makes you a moderate.

I can agree with that for the most part, and some of the percieved differences can be resolved through a lengthy discussion of semantics.

Wylted - I have Wylted Agree: 41.18% / Disagree: 58.82% with you, and that scares me.

Can we please disagree a bit more?? Get it above 50% at least?

Although I admit, I was racially profiled once and despite being mad at the cop (who was also white), I thought it made a lot of sense.

He saw me walking through a black neighborhood and assumed I was buying drugs. In reality, it was a shortcut and dice my cousin was highly involved in the black community, I was friends with a lot of people in that neighborhood.

Wow, I definitely need to debate the effectiveness of this. I actually think that not only is it ineffective, but it creates a type of tunnel vision that would make officers and security personnel miss actual threats. In my opinion, it's worse than ineffective, it's counter productive.

Use race from profile built evidence makes alot of sense. Its just unethical, and unfair in a sense. Unfortunately, thats how the world works.
