There are two things I know I'm not; those are libertarian and communist.

What? She was a crazy b**** sometimes.

Doesn't lower the value of her philosophy.

What do you think of Adam Smith?

Overrated. I've got the Wealth of Nations. Bits and pieces of it are good, nothing really original -- even for his time. Not really worth reading in its entirety since there's better, more recent stuff out there.

He's an accurate sniper. There are just no guns good enough for his technique to actually hit anything in the known universe.

That is true. And yeah I guess I do pretty much fall for sob stories. I was close to just letting Ann think that everything in war was okay because of her personal family sob story, but I was strong enough to stand my ground.

Still makes me feel bad tho.

From your profile you look like a liberal. But in the Agorist thread, you said I shouldn't have to give my money to the government if I don't want to. If you believe that, then you're a libertarian.
Should we subsidize education?

Social liberal, with what someone called a "neo-conservative foreign policy." I just prefer to think of myself as non-idealistic.
