Lol i like how you voted on one as well
Took a look at your stance on the various issues, and I have to say, I saw a lot of contradiction...
Well, for starters, you say you're against welfare, while you also claim that you support a minimum wage, social security, and "redistribution". You also claim to be a conservative, while also saying you support a progressive tax, the UN, a smoking ban, globalization, and the federal reserve. These claims you make are rather contradictory in nature.
That is due to me when I started it quickly choosing them. I am really neutral to against on those.
Well I am against a progressive tax, I am pro for the UN though that dosn't mean I always agree with it, I am pro a smoking ban or a tax increase on smoking this is due to it basically being a drug that gets you hooked on it, the rest I am more of a no stance on.
I understand foreign policy, it is just a have some radical views on it.
@stargate In previous arguments you have suggested invading any and all dictatorships and establishing democracies. A noble enough goal, but it is economically (we could never fund such a project), militarily (even our military couldn't cover that much ground), and even socially (our attempts to replace dictatorships with democracies have had mixed results) impossible. This is what we mean when we say that your foreign policy is a bit separated from reality.
Well yes and no, just invade them one at an time.
Are you aware that democracy is a horrible idea? The system lends itself entirely to tyranny of the majority, so whoever shapes public opinion wields infinite power.
It is still better then the other options. Also I like a republic more then a democracy. Yes there is a difference, it helps prevent dictators from rising to power and killing tons of people. I mean look at history and what they have done. The government should be by the people and for the people.
Tyranny of the majority is pretty much equivalent to the tyranny of a dictator, except it's literally impossible to counter.
Look democracy is the best way to go, it may not be prefect but it is pretty darn good. Dictatorships suck and lead to power abuse, along with lack of freedom, communism leads to lack of freedom and and power abuse. Sudan, Soviet Union brfore it fell, Chinia, north korrea. Now look at democracys USA, U.K, France, Canada. Have I made my point yet?
