Any ideas on DDO's members Democratic to Republicans ratios?

It seems to be more Democrats and Socialists then there are Republicans and Conservatives.

Yeah, pretty much. So I guess the real debate is whether or not capitalism is more appropriate within the framework of a State as libertarians suggest. Why hasn't anyone debated that yet? Doesn't that seem like the obvious discussion to be had?

They can do that if they feel that some parties go for a minimal state. Libertarians tend to support some parties.

Both of the U.S.'s major parties support larger government.

If you were taken seriously, you would be considered a troll by many people.

If she were considered a troll, wouldn't she, by definition, not be taken very seriously?

TROLLING IS SRS BUSINESs.
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

Not necessarily. When a troll gathers respect which he/she does not deserve, it looks like he isn't taken seriously. If he gets taken seriously, he will be looked at differently, and perhaps then people will not take him/her seriously anymore, but at least the way they should.

Volkov defends his position well, and i think is taken both seriously and is respected.

Maybe lot of libertarians (like me) quite agree with anarchists (anarcho-capitalists). I would not object against anarchism, but perhaps the best way to it would be via minarchism. My bet would be a formal state with almost anarchist (voluntarist) constitution. Its main role would be diplomacy. -> via its institution the parties within state would be able to negotiate with other states (defense treaties against foreign attackers, trade and so on).
This is based on the fact that biggest enemy of anarchy is neighbour states (see decline of private law in Island: http://libertariannation.org...)
If many states would turn to such quasi-anarchist state, the states could be abolished. But maybe it wouldn't matter anymore.
