    Yeah, it seems like it. Our primary isn't until August 7th though, so we have a later primary date than most states.

    Update: So far no one has officially filed to run against me. The current rep who won by such a large margin the last time around hasn't filed to run for reelection yet. There have been some rumors that he's not going to run. However, I'm not taking anything for granted. I'm continuing to campaign hard and fund raise as if he's going to run. Also, I may have a Democratic opponent. I was in Hutchinson, Kansas the other day for interviews, and a man from a nearby town was there, and he said that he was considering running in the 113th district as well. He's the head of the Democratic Party in the county where I live. However, I haven't come across anyone who actually knows him, and it's very hard for a Democrat to get elected in my district. However, I'm not taking anything for granted. As I said, I'm continuing to do everything I need to do. I just don't know for sure who my opponent will be, or if I'll have one at all. It's not uncommon to have uncontested races in Kansas. The pay for state legislators in our state is low, and there's just not much of an incentive for people to run for political office. Of course, I might still face the current representative in the Republican Primary, or I might face the Democratic candidate that I mentioned in the general election, or I might face both the current rep in the GOP primary and the Democratic candidate in the general election. (And again, it's possible that I won't face anyone, as no one has officially filed yet.) The filing deadline is at the end of May, so I'll find out by then who my opponent will be or if I'll have an opponent.

    For curiosity, have you been reading my theonomy posts?

    Regarding the whole "only the radical libertarians" will enter the gate, a similar thing was brought up at Eric Peters Autos:

    "David" is my username. Moleman is coming close to arguing the position that only libertarians are Christians.

    Just an FYI:

    1. My answer to my own poll question is probably "yes", though its an exceedingly reluctant "yes."

    2. The more reluctant someone is, the less quick I'm going to be to judge them. You, frankly, are not the type of person I was considering when I made my OP, even if you techncially qualify. You're against legal torture and you agree that its almost always wrong. There are a lot of people who support legal torture and who think at least some of what was in the Senate Report was morally permissible (At least at my school there are, admittedly, my school is pretty "conservative"). I much more had in mind the neoconservative who says "torture is always justified against terrorists if there's a chance to save even one life" than I am a generally peaceful person that reluctantly says they could justify torturing someone if it meant saving their family, or something like that.

    OK, so in that situation you're almost dealing with Hiroshima and Nagisaki again (not as it actually occured, but what most people think of it as.) Fair enough...

    Still distressing.... I'm not sure what that says of those people who actually think these were all ticking time bomb situations.

    Do you think it would ever be moral to let someone die of hypothermia in a cold cell? Do you ever think it would ever be moral to break someone's legs and force them to stand for hours or days? Do you ever think it would be moral to consecutively waterboard someone 183 times?

    Is your only issue with this the potential for abuse, or do you understand that there is something deeply immoral about this?

    There's something sickening and inhumane about about what was described in the CIA report. Killing someone in self-defense when they are trying to shoot you isn't comparable to that.

    Sorta, but there are plenty of people here who think it should be legal. So, where's the line where the form of torture becomes inhumane no matter what?

    TC, I apologize for the neg rep. I was in a really bad mood today, both from seeing the CIA report and seeing people here at school defend it. I took it out on you. I deserved the neg rep you threw back. Sorry...

    Am I also a hardcore extremist?

    The same one you said you'd never be extreme enough in. The one about police.
