I find you can judge a guy much better by his dating profile page and Twitter account.
No wonder you're single.
You're like a far right version of me. You know, but less good looking.
You can find everything you want just by googling my name,

Here's a dating profile I made:

http://www.pof.com/viewprofile.aspx?profile_id=40070128

And twitter: https://twitter.com/FZUMedia

Who do you think you are? Private investigator? it's not so much a shocking discovery when I want to have a presence on social networks to begin with.
No of course not, don't be silly.
I'm simply curious that is all. Not everyone (I&I) is willing to share basic information.
And it is interesting to compare political views to things such as location, occupation etc...

Besides, dating profile and twitter account are far more trustworthy sources of information as to what type of person you are. Much more then say.. a couple posts.
This way I don't come across as an ignorant fucktard by pretending to know the person I'm talking with.

Don't know who he is? everyone seems to love comparing me to him though, so I guess he is cool.

"Only those that don't measure up are afraid of being measured" - I try to be as honest and open as I can be, so I can sift through those that actually like me for who I am, and those that don't- why waste time?

I think it says a lot when people use certificates and pieces of paper that say they are good at something in a debate rather than present any tangible arguments to the table. I know from that you are authoritarian and have been taught by other authoritarians.

I wonder how this kangaroo would react at having his views challenged...he looks like a chilled out dude.

He dont look like the sort of dude to resort to personal attacks in a discussion. Consider

For no matter how much I use these symbols, to describe symptoms of my existence.
You are your own emphasis.
So I say nothing.

People often criticize me for personal attacks, but it's just stating the obvious really. I mean, you only need half an eye open to see people's motivations.

For the record you were the initiator of the education statements I was merely stating my position.
Also to entirely disregard said stupid piece of paper is somewhat a little bit silly. Because even while it is a stupid piece of paper with relatively not much meaning behind actually daily economics or whatever (my major is actually in commercial law, finance and accounting not economics, I've just done several economics papers because I like the topic), it still indicates a certain level of competency.

Also to assume I an somewhat of an authoritarian wouldn't be entirely false. To say I was taught and/or raised by them though IS false, very false indeed.

If you want to know my political viewpoint, I am a Right wing Libertarian. I favor business heavily but my social views are liberal. However as you may have astutely seen I am in favor of certain socialist reform for things I consider that the state should be operating. Certainly a mixed model at the least, in fact a mixed public and private model would be best IMO. Things like education, health, prisons, ummm.. No that's about it, education, health and prisons.

If you knew the slightest thing about government and politics, you'd employ a decisive argument to persuade people in favor of your policy. You have to convince the public that your policy would benefit them. But, what I find most fascinating about your ignorance is how willful you are in it. You persist in this childish delusion that society is here for you. I don't know how old you are, what you do for a living, or who you claim to be, but you have a lot to learn. When forming a world view, one requires a precise temperance of idealism and cynicism.
I want less state violence, less subsidies and government regulations, I have knowledge in political theory and economics but I am not sure what the level of competence people are to such topics on this forum- so I come from this topic in rational self interest.

If I am ignorant in my statements, surely you can point out what logical errors I have made? Nothing I have said is logically incorrect, so I am not sure how one can call me an idealist- It's not an idea- it's got nothing to do with me, it's just facts. Putting a child in almost half a million in debt before he/she is even born is immoral by any objective measure. And using violence to get people to pay for things that you think will benefit them is purely evil and I will fight people like you to defend my child's future.
You have yet to demonstrate the negative effects of government regulation, which is a requirement for national and international trade, basic necessities, and societal progression. Provide me with a convincing argument as to how both income and consumer taxes are unjust, and how they do not benefit you.

Your argument rings of the pathetic screaming by far right ignoramuses who opposed the Affordable Care Act.

Right, but the initiator in reality are those that take people's money by force, and threaten parents with jail if they don't send their children to public school. So to claim me as the initiator by me pointing out "it's bad" is logically incorrect.

One only has to look at simple charts and graphs to see the costs of health has sky-rocketed due to state influence, and areas of medicine handled by the private industry (laser eye surgery) have went down in cost significantly due to it being ran by those that that are competitive and not just waiting until 5pm so they can get paid.

When public education was introduced literacy rates went down significantly, and now that the socialist rot has fully developed, higher education is no longer a ticket to the middle class and doesn't really teach children anything of anything.

I mean, how many council estate boys will use knowledge of alkali metals or the battle of Hastings in their life?. The only things that are even useful to people are basic English and math skills- that's the only things I use today, and even then, my parents should of taught me that, not the school. Everything else I have learned, has been done from my own direction and curiosity- that's the problem with schools, they don't consider the students the customers and respect what they want to learn. Instead it's "you must learn this because we think it is good for you". Imagine if a Pizza company did that? "you must eat this food because we think you will like it"- it would go bankrupt immediately.

no... Initiator in the sense that "I know more economics then you".

It's like talking to myself (just.. minus the socialist ideas).
What bothers me about current education system (because while I believe it should be free, I believe it really needs to change) is not so much the useless shit they teach in school but all the useless shit between the teaching. ie: The babysitting, getting the class under control from stupid cunts. God damn the amount of time wasted on that. Or stupid things like taking attendance.
I truly do wish I was home-schooled, so much time could have been better spent playing xbox.

While I normally would apply efficiency to everything I don't for this because it's more realistic to take my approach IMO.
ie: In America with health, you needed health insurance. Not everyone can afford health insurance.
Thus an accident not anything your fault could literally kill you because you can't afford health insurance.

I think the role of the state is to provide basic needs and things the private sector wouldn't provide (ie: street lights, roads, certain public transport). And education and health IMO come under basic needs. So matter your income level, that should be provided by the state (even at a lose). Ideally private companies will enter those markets, this would increase ingenuity and competition.

Oh and I&I is a very far left wing conspiracy nut.
