Even though I can't support anyone, but I follow some politicians like Tulsi Gabbard, Bernie Sanders and Rand Paul. I checked some of the threads on here and I thought maybe joining you guys would be a good idea.

    So, is it OK for me to join here? Or is it an American-exclusive website?
    I can speak for nobody but myself in welcoming any and all lovers of freedom. The world needs more comity between such people because the haters of liberty are glued to each other, usually in obscene ways, such that dynamite won't separate them. Power rests largely in numbers and organization.

    I don't care if people from other countries visit this forum. What I do care about is whether or not they support the ideas of liberty.

    Couldn't you say the same about black people wanting to know white people?

    I am not stating there aren't minorities who support the republican party, but many tend to avoid the right wing side of politics considering the identity it is usually grouped with.

    That is the unfortunate truth at times.

    I suspect if Asia or Africa experienced what happens in more western countries, there would be the similar mindset. But when one is desperate to get somewhere, obviously they face problems, due to criminals, who may also be from where ever the migrants are from.

    What government agency provides you with a 'puter and connection?

    I'm pretty sure it's not one that has actually hired you so that pretty much leaves the taxpaying Limeys footing the bill for you to post as one of their countrymen while living on the dole.

    You know if you put as much effort into learning to drive as you do posting you could probably get a job delivering pizza or hauling trash....

    These two posters consistently post intellectually dishonest information.

    I don't think there is a single poster here who has any problem with Iranians.

    Donald Trump loves Iranians. He just isn't a huge fan of the regime.

    Many of us here understand that you cannot have unlimited immigration and a huge welfare state. The two posters above do not understand that concept.

    Additionally, as you can see we are very anti-socialist here.

    If you have a free market system, then the people who migrate to your country will tend to favor free market systems.

    Since we have a socialist system combined with a wealth generating capitalist system, a lot of migrants come for the socialism. It turns out that the migrants who come here vote for Democrats at nearly double the rate of natives.

    Some of us here would support an open immigration system, or something close to that, if we didn't have a huge welfare state. But we refuse to under these current conditions, because relatively open/illegal immigration is leading us to a less free society.

So now, I still maintain a Nigerian passport so I won't need a visa when I am trying to visit my parents and a US passport so I can travel to Europe without a visa. See, most people think its about welfare but its really about freedom of movement

    Are any of them regular posters (not counting any of the reincarnations of Fire11)? I did not know. But I'm glad to hear it.

In any event, I can appreciate that you like Ron Paul's statements on foreign policy, especially vis a vis Iran, but the essence of libertarianism (the political ideology which Ron Paul espouses) is laissez faire: the unfettered free market. Libertarianism is primarily a school of economic thought, intended to guide domestic policy. Libertarians also tend to be anti-war (which in the US means being against invading other countries, since that is what our government tends to do). Assuming you aren't familiar with this kind of economic thought, I suggest you read the following:

    Civilized Anglophones disregard recent, goofy attempts to butcher the language.

    For example, I was recently reading something relating to classical Greece.

    The author actually corrected Aristotle (!) with [brackets] to insert a feminine pronoun.

    Such a person should be taken out into a field and shot in his head.

    ...just kidding, of course, but he shouldn't be published by anyone, ever, under any circumstances.

    ...because he is a barbarian.
