are you still a ... libertarian
thats no way to talk to a girl god
skanky hoes like walrus arent like regular girls, khaos. you gotta treat em with a firm hand.
That reminds me, I need to go return some books before I get a fine.
You meet your hoes at the library?
probably at a shed
not really, I suppose. I met other libertarians in college and realized some of them are really fucking retarded.
I'm too apathetic about politics to really subscribe to any one label nowadays anyway.
Sorry to burst your bubble there :(
Or have you eloped off to the libertarian side and simply want some hard-to-find political comradeship? Surely not!
fuck no. i just want to argue with a libertarian without having to go to the gay websites they're known to populate.
i can sort of understand why people, especially working class americans, become libertarians. they just dont like the government taking money off their paychecks and funneling it into military expenditure and other bullshit like that.
hey god i know a libertarian on another forum who is eager to argue
most working class americans support military expenditures and accusing democrats of cutting military funding is always a winning talking point with that group
get him to join here rayne
libertarians are basically people who are too poor to be conservative
why dont you join that board god
why dont you tell me what board it is rayne!?!?!?!
maybe this will entice you
Ascaris, I'd very much like to hear some more why you think a government implemented monetary policy is better than relying on the principles of Austrian economics.
I'd like to know why we need a Federal Reserve to force interest rates low and encourage risky loans from banks and malinvestment in stocks?
Also, for the record, if the government offered my business a bailout, I'd take it in a heart beat. Hell, who wouldn't? And please help me understand why I should hate big corporations and free markets, when we have a system filled with government bureaucrats and lobbyists, handing out my money to said corporations, and electing said corporations' employees to positions of power?
To quote my post that you never responded to:
tl;dr: I think your quarrels here aren't with capitalism, but crony capitalism. Please prove me wrong.Quote:
In fact, there was more extensive bank regulation, central bank intervention, government protection of depositors and other bank creditors, and government control of mortgage markets in those decades than any other in US history. The artificially low and sometimes negative federal funds rates generated by the FED encouraged those risky "AAA" loans.
Also, you forget to mention the Federal Reserve and Congress have been undertaking creditor bailouts for large financial institutions since the 1980s. In REAL capitalism, if a business fails, it fails. But the crony capitalism of today prevents that. Of course the private industries were greedy too, but I can't say I blame them, when the cracks in the system were so easy to slip through thanks to the government, And when they were practically encouraged to do so.
