Based on the big issues...

Abortion would be legal.

There would be no affirmative action.

There would be high animal rights.

There would be a boarder fence.

We would be Capitalistic.

There would be a death penalty.

There might be drug legalization.

There would be no electoral collage.

There would be high environmental protection.

There would be no estate tax.

There would be euthanasia.

There would be no Federal Reserve system.

There might be a flat tax.

There would be high free trade.

Gay marriage would be legal.

We would be embracing globalization.

We would have a gold standard.

There would be gun rights.

Homeschooling would be legal.

There would be no internet censorship.

There would be legal unions.

Prostitution would be legalized.

There would be no military intervention.

There would be a minimum wage.

There would be universal health care.

There would be no national retail sales tax.

There would be no racial profiling.

There would be a smoking ban.

There would be social programs.

There would be social security.

There would not be stimulus spending.

There would be tough term limits.

There would never be torture.

There would be welfare.

Based solely on these things, do you mostly approve of this nation and would you rather live in it than in your current country?

What about the no Federal Reserve part? That doesn't make up for it?

And yeah, that surprised me too.

One of the few places in Washington DC where you can smoke publicly is in congress.
I think that's so funny.

DDO: Agree with 14 points. Disagree with 11. Don't care about rest.

Currently I am closer to consensus, IMO.

If running a country came down to our active members, we would have two parties: The Libertarian Party and The Communist Party.

Well that and the lack of interventionism would be nice but I suppose in this fantasy land I can sneak past the smoking ban.

I don't mind those issues. My problem with that country is the guy to girl ratio is like 5 to 1.

I don't completely approve, but it would certainly be better than the current US.
Should we subsidize education?

It does keep inflation relatively down.

Agreed, so for liberty, but the minority of smokers are discriminated against ..

Was DDO on bath salts when these things were implemented? Me thinks yes.
