For some reason the software on this site selected Norway as an answer instead of no.

Just use the sources used by Wikipedia...
Fanath says2014-04-27T23:29:47.9004410-05:00
They have a small bibliography and the end I think.
Jifpop09 says2014-04-28T00:04:13.6271564-05:00
Thats what I used to tell people, but then I realized they weren't catching on.
Actionsspeak says2014-04-28T00:06:49.7963986-05:00
I use them whenever possible, but alot are no longer active. Also if the data shown has no working sources I disregard it.
Actionsspeak says2014-04-28T00:08:38.0114034-05:00
@jif Why do you keep changing profile pics? And why is the revolution one the exception? (only pic not in black/white,)
Jifpop09 says2014-04-28T00:12:30.4188410-05:00
I have a couple of color pics. I just pick people who everyone knows, so I can catch the stupid people
Actionsspeak says2014-04-28T00:32:29.5128410-05:00
You should make Che your wallpaper.
Jifpop09 says2014-04-28T00:33:42.8223812-05:00
Che is stupid and not my style. I'm fine with people who only the 25% will recognize.
Actionsspeak says2014-04-28T00:35:55.1717724-05:00
Meh... I figured Che would have been completely your style seeing you've done a few revolutionaries and typically communist ones. Http://9gag.Com/gag/6634610/bad-luck-che-guevara
Jifpop09 says2014-04-28T00:38:19.9356410-05:00
Man, I'm all for socio-capitalist revolution. Any thing but the $Hit your party follows. When the GOP, Democrats, and world disagrees with you, then your probably doing something wrong.
Actionsspeak says2014-04-28T01:02:24.5112410-05:00
Like this? "We, the members of the Libertarian Party, challenge the cult of the omnipotent state and defend the rights of the individual. We hold that all individuals have the right to exercise sole dominion over their own lives, and have the right to live in whatever manner they choose, so long as they do not forcibly interfere with the equal right of others to live in whatever manner they choose. Governments throughout history have regularly operated on the opposite principle, that the State has the right to dispose of the lives of individuals and the fruits of their labor. Even within the United States, all political parties other than our own grant to government the right to regulate the lives of individuals and seize the fruits of their labor without their consent. We, on the contrary, deny the right of any government to do these things, and hold that where governments exist, they must not violate the rights of any individual: namely, (1) the right to life -- accordingly we support the prohibition of the initiation of physical force against others; (2) the right to liberty of speech and action -- accordingly we oppose all attempts by government to abridge the freedom of speech and press, as well as government censorship in any form; and (3) the right to property -- accordingly we oppose all government interference with private property, such as confiscation, nationalization, and eminent domain, and support the prohibition of robbery, trespass, fraud, and misrepresentation. Since governments, when instituted, must not violate individual rights, we oppose all interference by government in the areas of voluntary and contractual relations among individuals. People should not be forced to sacrifice their lives and property for the benefit of others. They should be left free by government to deal with one another as free traders; and the resultant economic system, the only one compatible with the protection of individual rights, is the free market." http://www.Lp.Org/platform

Ha, you just quoted me the libertarian opening platform. Anyone can spit this $hit out. "The domocrat party promises to achieve social and economic equality, while also helping the economy". It goes both ways man, so take it to the debate room.
Actionsspeak says2014-04-28T01:12:12.8808410-05:00
So which issues do you disagree with?
Jifpop09 says2014-04-28T01:14:25.7304410-05:00
On a vague scale, everything regarding economics.
Actionsspeak says2014-04-28T01:15:57.5988410-05:00
Of course representatives in other parties disagree with libertarian's, libertarian's try to shrink government and the others prefer receiving checks for the rest of their lives. “I've lived on a government salary for 30 years.” - Senator Mitch McConnell (Republican- Kentucky)
Jifpop09 says2014-04-28T01:21:04.4196410-05:00
Libertarianism is a rejection of a shared base understanding of economics between the majority. Keynesian has been established to work on both sides, just how to apply it is debated.
Jifpop09 says2014-04-28T01:22:58.5571017-05:00
Actionspeak, I hardly ever talk this highly, but this topic is one thing I know I can crush anyone in. Begin writing your challenge.
Actionsspeak says2014-04-28T01:24:09.2151357-05:00
What about Externality Libertarianism? It has strong support from economists
Jifpop09 says2014-04-28T01:28:02.3748410-05:00
No it doesn't, and hasn't been applied very well at all. By externality libertarianism, we can't build roads or invest without something causing obvious negative harm. Which is impossible to prove, creating more trouble. Go ahead and debate that, but I'll still beat you all the same.
Jifpop09 says2014-04-28T01:31:40.1803593-05:00
I believe Harvard, Cornell, and Stanford have all criticized externality libertarianism.
Actionsspeak says2014-04-28T01:38:38.8517258-05:00
Well, the only form I truly support is consequentalist libertarianism.
Jifpop09 says2014-04-28T01:41:22.0464410-05:00
Consequental libertarianism has been criticied for being nothing more then common sense anaylisis. Please make the debate, so I can eliminate another libertarian
Wylted says2014-04-28T01:58:56.1266381-05:00
Jifpop I look forward to you eliminating this libertarian. When I get done with YYW. We'll discuss a fair topic. If you try to handcuff me like you do some of your other opponents the debate won't happen though. You've been wanting to debate me for a while anyway.
