    Is the United States a Republic, but not a Democracy?

    Liberalism and conservatism (like all left and right wing ideologies and ideologies in general) are conscious, rationalistic permutations of deeper underlying impulses in human nature -- impulses human beings evolved because they helped us survive dangerous situations that arose in the state of...

    Is the United States a Republic, but not a Democracy?

    That ideologues want to enforce their will on people when they can't secure agreement with their beliefs. Political society is a realm of personal vision, will, and values, not facts and figures. It's only as true as your will is strong. No. People "should" live in a state of anarchic...

    45 % of americans pay no federal income tax.

    Considering they own over half the wealth in the United States and more than half the government I'd say that's a bargain.

    Trump Now Leads Polls At 41%

    You're not listening. It isn't magic. Compromises look negative to others in a presidential system. Deal making weakens the political position of the person or group on the receiving end of the deal.

    Syria slams US-led coalition strike against troops as 'act of aggression'[W:118]

    Re: Syria slams US-led coalition deadly strike against troops as 'act of aggression' There's no hyperbole. Bombs are always going off in the Middle East, far more often than the media reports. Usually it isn't the United States igniting them, but people who live in the Middle East.

    Syria slams US-led coalition strike against troops as 'act of aggression'[W:118]

    Re: Syria slams US-led coalition deadly strike against troops as 'act of aggression' There's a larger context to chaos in the Middle East than American acts of interference, which are often little more than droplets of water in a storming sea. However, the reason why the State Department is...

    Trump Now Leads Polls At 41%

    I'm just going to stop you right there. Deal making is inherently impossible in America's presidential system because compromises almost inevitably fail to realize promises made to the voting demographics to which politicians owe their seats. Thus, compromises look and feel negative to the...

    Syria slams US-led coalition strike against troops as 'act of aggression'[W:118]

    Re: Syria slams US-led coalition deadly strike against troops as 'act of aggression' The alternatives weren't any better. At a fundamental level, if the United States was totally disinterested in the Middle East then, apart from having an noncompetitive economy during the years of oil...

    Trump Now Leads Polls At 41%

    Regardless about how you feel about Trump or the relative intelligence of American conservatism, it is always a great day when a non-establishment politician makes a strong showing in the American electoral system.

    Syria slams US-led coalition strike against troops as 'act of aggression'[W:118]

    Re: Syria slams US-led coalition deadly strike against troops as 'act of aggression' That's a very decisive way to put an issue that is by its historical development (and philosophical perplexity) is impossible to settle. To begin with, the decisions over what the United States was...

    Syria slams US-led coalition strike against troops as 'act of aggression'[W:118]

    Re: Syria slams US-led coalition deadly strike against troops as 'act of aggression' I'm an anarchist, ideologically. You don't need to tell me that a sovereign nation state has no moral justification for its behavior or policies. However, that applies to every political organization that...

    Syria slams US-led coalition strike against troops as 'act of aggression'[W:118]

    Re: Syria slams US-led coalition deadly strike against troops as 'act of aggression' This is a catch-22. If the United States buttresses up sultanistic regimes for the sake of regional stability and global prosperity/safety, we compromised on our democratic principles and repressed a group of...

    Syria slams US-led coalition strike against troops as 'act of aggression'[W:118]

    Re: Syria slams US-led coalition deadly strike against troops as 'act of aggression' Most of what drives conflict in the Middle East is ethnic or religious tension driven along tribal lines. Example being, Assad runs a sultanistic regime based on supplying the best opportunities (state or...

    Syria slams US-led coalition strike against troops as 'act of aggression'[W:118]

    Re: Syria slams US-led coalition deadly strike against troops as 'act of aggression' Right or wrong to intervene, the U.S. is only fractionally responsible for the condition of those regions. Most of the blame rests on the shoulders of the people who actually live there.

    I really doubt that Quentin "Blow up Hitler and the entire Nazi High Command" Tarantino is going to lose in a contest of popularity with the NYPD Union guy.

    Do you support equal rights/anti-discrimination laws? & adding sexual orientation?

    Re: Do you support equal rights/anti-discrimination laws? & adding sexual orientation People should ideally have as much freedom as possible, including the freedom to be jackasses. That being said, the government has an obligation to uphold the welfare of all citizens (gay people pay taxes)...

    Republicans kill successful birth-control program in Colorado

    As a mechanism of control, not empowerment. If the government can empower the body politic to the effect of making it more capable of informed decisions and investments, then it should.

    GMO Denialism, worst kind of science denial

    You seem to be in a mood today. The scientific community is spread out across so many politically crossed groups that there's no hope of impartiality in anything that entails huge amounts of money or increases in political strength. The only rational choice isn't to believe anybody. Although...
