Hello all. For the first 5 or 6 months that I was on this site, I was extremely active to the point where it was rather a detriment to me. From that point on forward until today, I was barely active and did very little debating.

Now that I'm fully back to this site and am willing to commit my time, I wanted to start an AMA.

Please don't ask for honest opinions, just ask me anything else.

School :)

Mostly the fact that when I wake up it's very hard for me to go back to sleep and I don't like being lazy and moping around in bed.

Currently my desire to get good grades for college, then it will be my desire to get good grades in college for graduate school, and then my desire to make a business and thus become rather wealthy. All ties in together, but currently it's probably school whenever applicable and the fact that I very much enjoy politics and the ability to discuss issues on sites such as these on days when applicable.

Why do you perfer the Austrian School of economics to the Keynesian school of thought?

I find the arguments of the Austrian school to be far more rational than arguments from the Keynesian school mostly in the fiscal department. There's variation on monetary policy but there's very little variation on fiscal policy, as any credible and noteworthy economist would not debate the assertion that fiscally the government cannot spend vast amounts of money.

Other than that, it's also in line with my line of thinking in terms of individualism and lack of government control of both the economy and the personal lives of people.

That doesn't exist. It was merely a term coined by a Democrat to refer to conservative fiscal policies. Yes, as explained by Milton Friedman, the rich do not horde wealth and they will invest it back into the economy.

Trump

I'm not even answering that.

Hayek

Position on immigration?

Only restricted to educated whites or Asians. Islamic immigration should be ended permanently to all white countries and any immigration that brings in too many non whites must also end so we can keep our cultures and racial cohesion.

Lol, Mr. VP XD
I'm undecided, honestly. I can see the argument for both sides, and haven't done enough exclusive research to conclude what would be best for the US. Raising the interest rates like the Fed did earlier wasn't a *terrible* move, but it could have been done without. What about you, lannan?

What are your thoughts on it Mr. VP?

Lol, Mr. VP XD
I'm undecided, honestly. I can see the argument for both sides, and haven't done enough exclusive research to conclude what would be best for the US. Raising the interest rates like the Fed did earlier wasn't a *terrible* move, but it could have been done without. What about you, lannan?

I think it would be a great alternative to the Welfare program.

Oh wow... and here I misread it the entire time as negative interest rates...
Yeah, I'd favor a negative income tax for the same reason.

Good substitute for welfare. I like Friedman's work.
If you put the federal government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in 5 years there'd be a shortage of sand. - Friedman

Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself. -Friedman

Nothing is so permanent as a temporary government program. - Friedman

Society will never be free until the last Democrat is strangled with the entrails of the last Communist.
