    Poll: Re: What'$ Your Vote Worth???

    I vote pretty much Libertarian (re: wasting my time) in regards to candidates. Issues depends (voting-wise), although I'm not entirely sure if you can donate money to an issue, or it's campaign - I...
  2. Re: The wealthier you are the happier you are?

    It's all about being able to maintain your standard of happiness.

    Certain things will make certain people happy, and many of those require funding. So as long as you make enough (if not more) of...
  3. Poll: Re: Universal health care / My first time in a Swedish hospital

    And your entire rebuttal to that is you think these people don't deserve the money.

    If the public at large thinks that someone, or something, does deserve the wages they spend, who are you to tell...
  4. Re: Could You Hate Conservative Christians More?

    Well, yeah, hence the 'should'.



    What's a public school doing raising their kids?

    If the parents are so scared about their son walking around in drag, wouldn't the faith they put in Jesus...

    Poll: Re: wal-mart evil

    I suppose the one benefit of being hypocritical is that you are either saying something agreeable, or doing something agreeable. So that's something.

    I guess.

    Anyway, the whole anti-WalMart...
  6. Re: Could You Hate Conservative Christians More?

    Actually, they don't. The state is to stay out of the church's business and likewise.

    Personally, I wouldn't want to push my religious beliefs (assuming I had any) into a school for fear of them...

    Re: National Debt

    Woah, slow down.

    Regardless of justification, a war is usually a temporary thing that's for the most part dependent on circumstances outside of the administration. So to compare these...
  8. Poll: Re: Universal health care / My first time in a Swedish hospital

    See post #57.



    The presence of force is never morally justified. Not even in the case of criminal justice. But with people being given fundamental rights as outlined in the Constitution,...
  9. Re: Could You Hate Conservative Christians More?

    Not when looking at the application of doctrines.

    For instance, I can draw pictures of Muhammed all day and wear the ring of the Freemasons, and by their own standards there should be very little...
  10. Re: Is our monetary policy ruining our econimic future?

    Everything else I understand except this ^ bit.

    Isn't it true since the population of suppliers always grows, and technology allows greater supply, the inherent value of that supply goes down? So...

    Re: Religion as the cause of war

    Well, I wasn't getting into the first 2, but I'll agree with the second, only because I think it's half of the argument.

    Removing this religious 'trigger' makes war more difficult to wage. If you...

    Re: Religion as the cause of war

    I think you're incorrect, I would actually argue that the state was the religion. The manner in which it was set up, followed, and implemented was structured very much like any religion you come...

  14. Re: Is our monetary policy ruining our econimic future?

    I would argue that the same farm wouldn't produce more cows if there wasn't a demand for more. If the farmer is capable of increasing supply to meet a rising demand, then the value of gold will...

    I would disagree with you there. Every religion has the innate ability to tap into those four points I brought up. The structure of how Stalin, Mao, Polpot, and Hitler rose and acquired power used...

    Re: Religion as the cause of war

    I would contest that.

    If you looked at the points I brought up in post #2, you can see that even though they denied the use of religion in their methods, you can clearly see they ascribed to it;...
  17. Re: Is our monetary policy ruining our econimic future?

    I would actually argue that this very point is a good reason why gold is a good currency.

    The value of gold will always be X in relation to the supply of gold in the world. So regardless of debt,...

    Re: Religion as the cause of war

    I've been batting this one around for a while, but I think taking the tack of 'religion causes wars' is too simple.

    Throughout history, we've had central figures around which people rally and...
  19. Poll: Re: Universal health care / My first time in a Swedish hospital

    Absolutely yes. I don't know a person who would say otherwise.

    However, it's not that simple. Arguing against government-run healthcare doesn't mean that I want to deny insurance or health for...
  20. Re: Is our monetary policy ruining our econimic future?

    In some ways yes, other ways no.

    One 'yes' is pretty obvious - inflation would only be measured by the amount of gold currently in the monetary system.

    If ODN had an economy, and Apok had, say...

    Re: National Debt

    Well, in the republican's defense, there were 2 wars going on during the biggest 'spending hikes' shown on that graph.

    '90-'92 - Persian Gulf War

    '03-'06 (last date given on the graph) - Iraq...

    Re: A Question for Libertarians

    So I take it, the mitigating factors must be considered when addressing a situation such as these presented.

    I'll concede whatever point it was I was bringing up....not really sure, exactly.

  25. Re: McCain, an ideologue or an expert on National Security.

    I think it's an honest mistake; that whole situation over there is confusing enough, even before you throw in Sunni and Shiite Muslims.

  26. Poll: Re: Universal health care / My first time in a Swedish hospital

    That's a really loose correlation you've brought up. There are untold thousands of mitigating environmental factors involved in the evolution of a bug, and to try to distill them down to just one,...
