Actually, you'll find that while yes, most people are left wing on social issues here, you'll find quite a few opposite spectrum views on economics and other views. Actual full on every issue leftists are as rare as full on right wingers.

Witty Lunatic

i mean to be honest (and i'm not trying to step on toes here) right wing economics aren't anything special. right wing economics are only more effective because the republican party will actually Listen to economists, whereas the Democrats have had a tendency to ignore their advice sometimes.

edit: yeah this was just a random thing I felt was sightly relevant

It's because right-wingers are usually also cunts who verge too far into darwinism (anti-universal healthcare, social security, death penalty, etc) or religious extremism (prayer in schools, deities on yo dollars, general theocratical s**t)

This is a common symptom of ornithophobia. Take an entire bottle of propranolol and call me in the morning.

lol propranolol is just a beta blocker so ingesting large quantities of it isn't going to make you any sicker than eating a whole bottle of asprin

it might cause a heart attack if you're unhealthy I guess

lol, break a gram of propranolol and you've got a potentially lethal overdose even in a perfectly healthy adult. Ingesting your average 80-100 capsule bottle is therefore realistically lethal in all but the smallest single-capsule potencies, which is for, I don't know, toddlers or something.

Anyways, shut up Cameron, you're a f*****t.

That's odd.

Because I notice gaia being full of extreme right wing lunatics of every flavour, with only the occasional 'left-wing-anarchist' - which is usually a troll.

There's hardly a hippy, a communitarian, a syndicalist or a give-all-you-have-to-the-poor-Christian to be seen.

Let alone the old authoritarian 'left wing'.

But we've got fascists, right-wing 'anarchists', solipsists, nietzchean (I can't even be bothered spell checking them) Amerikan Republicans, misogynists, bigots, 'free-marketeers' and all the right-wing delusions of the day. Some of them even believe Faux News is a news station.

And my opinions are absolutely middle-of-the-road normal in every respect.

Do you define 'liberal' in the 18th / 19th / 20th century sense as someone 'progressive' who believes that society will get better if we work at it?

Or in the 21st century sense, in which 'liberal' means 'right-wing-anarchist who spouts about the tyranny of democratic government' ?

That's kind of important. Because I think that the former are outnumbered by the latter on these forums.

There are a fair number of people who regurgitate right-wing press stuff about the ebil government with their 'nanny state' regulations that try to keep poor people and their kids from being stepped on by globalized capital. And they call themselves 'economically liberal' .

An 18th century person would point out that they confuse 'liberty' with 'license' and, in fact, they're on the side of the robber barons against the majority of the people.
