    Libertarian, hah. I can never take you seriously again, just as psycho as the teabaggers.

    Teabaggers, huh?
    There's never been an original thought in your head, has there?

    And yes, I'm a libertarian, because I can do the math and recognize a failing Ponzi scheme when I see it.

    There's a pretty big leap from "doing the math" to becoming a libertarian. But, if you know anything about geopolitics or human nature, you would know that libertarianism cannot work on a large scale. They're good ideas on an individual scale, but it would be disaster for Western civilization in terms of geopolitics and would be almost as harmful as socialism for America. Admittedly, that's mostly because the average person cannot succeed if they are only rewarded based on their actual importance because 95% of people have absolutely zero initiative. Being something like an economic utilitarian myself, I know that you have to make ethical and intellectual concessions when making policy that affects the public because most people are just plain Squibbish. I could live by a lot of the tenants of libertarianism in my individual life, but we would destroy ourselves if we forced all of society to conform.

    There's never been an original thought in your head, has there?
    Don't worry about Squibb. I have thoroughly destroyed every argument he has ever made. We only let him speak for the lulz anymore.

    You of course. But if we're gonna start talking about this; I'd like you to clearly define the boundaries of what libertarianism is for you. Why? Because social sciences are unfortunately not like natural sciences where words have a strict meaning attached to them. I swear, if you just go in a class of political thinkers and ask ''what's nationalism?'' everyone is gonna go ape shit and come up with their own definition.

    If your thinking is static enough to be contained within any ism then you are probably an idiot.

    I'm honestly not sure how adequate funding for basic social services like Universal Health Care would be detrimental to the USA, TF. That's all "socialism" is, its not Communism and I know you know that.

    And that is why it is so easy for me to make money off of the stock market. If the average person were smarter, I might actually have to think instead of suppress biases.

    I solute you, idiots of the world. Thank you.
