About Me:I enjoy debate. I doubt i will find the "voting" part of this site useful. I like to learn about History, Economics, and Politics.
Activities:Swimming
Beliefs:I call myself libertarin, and not anarchist mostly out of convenience. "Anarchist" has so many negative connotations wrapped up in it (and a lot of misuse by anti-social types) that the word isnt useful in describing my beliefs. I believe the less government there is the better our lives can be. I do not believe there is a moral or practical justification for government.

I read through quite a few of the "libertarian" profiles on here and i kept seeing a disturbing trend of libertarians being in favor of war.

Wars are also one of the most expensive endeavors. Now plenty of people think that the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, and the possibility of one in Iran are not huge expansions of gove...

Government welfare doesn't help the poor.

A system of government welfare creates a system of dependency, and destroys poor people's incentives to move up in life. If people are in desperate need of charity then the government is not the solution. The dependency is shown by the government's own data, and is documented by the heritage institute here: http://www.heritage.org/Research/Budget/cda06-11.cfm The incentives to move up in life are destroyed...as the more you earn the less you earn in welfare and the harder it becomes to sur...

Philosophy: Debate is an integral portion of philosophy and I would love to have debates on ethics, political philosophy, free will, etc. but there is not a section. "Other": Because it would be conceded and closed-minded to think that you can create a list of all possible debate categories. After all. I couldn't even find a legitimate category to put this topic....

'Nothing' exists.

What is 'nothing'? My personal definition is "the absence of an object or person that is not present on/around/below/etc. an object, person, or other physical matter." The argument here is not 'Nothing exists? Everything is existing right now!' My argument is that the idea and "matter" of 'nothing' can exist. The absence of something can exist. Prove me wrong....
