JBlake and Volkov are great leftist debaters, although they haven't debated much recently (got 2 debates with JBlake lined up though! whenever he's less busy).
Should we subsidize education?

I'm not too sure but I don't think L counts herself as on "the left".

Thank you for the vote of confidence, though I wouldn't necessarily classify myself as 'great' or even 'good.' Thank you, though!

I have finally gotten the time to work on the drawing up the first debate. It should be sent out by this evening.

As for theLwerd, she classifies herself alternatively as a moderate, slightly left leaning, or libertarian. Knowing her stance on a lot of issues, it would not be too much of a stretch to say that she is at least more inclined toward the left than the right.

JBlake and TheLwerd are left of center.
Me -Phil left the site in my charge. I have a recorded phone conversation to prove it.
kohai -If you're the owner, then do something useful like ip block him and get us away from juggle and on a dofferent host!
Me -haha you apparently don't know my history
Kohai - Maybe not, but that doesn't matter! You shoukd still listen to your community and quit being a tyrrant!
Me - i was being completely sarcastic
Kohai - then u misrepresented yourself by impersonating the owner—a violation of the tos

Left and right are too vague of distinctions.
Try:
Center-left
Center-right
Center
Authoritarian-left
Authoritarian-right
Libertarian-left
Libertarian-right

There aren't any leftists. So far people have only named JBlake, who hasn't done a debate in 6 months.

On the first page of the leaderboard (not that it means anything, but it's the easiest place to look) I would say that Freeman, Mangini, feverish, JBlake, MTGandP, Tartarize, brian_eggleston, TheSkeptic, and I (Grape) would be considered "leftist" to some extent or another. That's a fairly solid number of people, so I wouldn't say that no one is leftist. I think that libertarians are the only group that's larger. However, I would agree if you suggested that few of the people mentioned actually subscribe to many or all of the philosophical principles of Liberalism.

A better generalization might be that almost none of the top debaters are authoritarian. People are hard to group in general because the top debaters are generally very principled in their beliefs, so common trends don't occur unless there is a common rationale. A common rational is rare considering the fact that there are a lot more than two philosophical ideas out there.
