  2. Abortion, rights and libertarianism. How to 'solve' this understandably divisive issue?

    The issue of abortion is one that is constantly brought up and debated about at length within libertarian circles. It is often if not almost always approached as a black and white issue which in my view understandably creates tension and conclusions which cause their own problems.

  5. How should we Vote if Ron Paul is *NOT* the GOP Nominee???

    We need to have a serious discussion about how we should vote if Ron Paul is not the nominee for the GOP. Between a likely outcome of either Obama or Romney, which is a more preferable outcome, and why?

    Before I state who I'd rather have win - give me a second while I change my clothes...

    Okay. That's better. Between Romney and Obama, I would rather have Obama win. Now, before I am labeled as a traitor and a hypocrite - hear ...
