    Actually, no I do not think of myself as a moderate. I fully recognize that I am a radical. On the other hand, I also realize that my ideology is utopian, so I am willing to settle for a more moderate minarchy.

    I know I’m not a moderate.

    On my “moderate” days, I’m a libertarian. The rest of the time I’m a bloody-minded anarcho-capitalist.

    Funny how different media culture is over here in eastern Europe. 80% of journalists are socially liberal and fiscally conservative, and the media are more right-wing overall. Big cities also are predominantly right-wing.

    Moderate?

    Certainly not. People keep telling me I’m a disgusting barbarian If I think public whippings are a woefully underused punishments. I mean, what’s more effective? Sending a thief to jail for two months, where he’d just learn new tricks, or whipping him each time he gets caugh?. If the number of strikes kept doubling with each subsequent offence, I’m fairly sure the sixth or eight offence would be the last. Pain is a good teacher.

    Not moderate at all. I want to round up all the socialists and their ilk and have a “Trail of GTFO” to mexico or canada. At least I give them a choice where to go.

    No, I’m not moderate in my own mind. I fully acknowledge that I’m to the right of Attila the Hun.

    But come on, Bush went to war with the full support of a congressional resolution, and the left did nothing but ride that issue ad nauseum, making up false accusations and throwing around statistics that completely ignored the reality of what was going down. They wanted to crucify him. Now Obama goes into a de-facto illegal war without congressional approval in Libya, to the point where Congress is holding hearings whether to de-fund the effort and force Obama to stop the action in the courts, and all the media does is yawn and spend hours talking about Tony Weiner’s weiner! Don’t tell me there’s no media bias!
