    I agree, and that's why any argument involving Kali descends into rhetoric and insults. It's upto him how he debates with people, and his style might work for him, but for the quality of the discussion it is not helpful at all.
    We might complain about our current politicians, but frankly it would be far worse if you had Cameron yelling 'Communist scum' every time Miliband started speaking.

    Having said that, I realise this is an internet forum, and is only really here for our own enjoyment.

    I would personally vote Kali for president, which I feel like in about 25-30 years I will have a chance to do.

    I like the sound of that, Kali President of a declining US vs Me, Ruler of a united Socialist Europe and Extra-European members. With whatever state china's economy is in at that moment in time. I wonder who would resort to nukes first...?

    He'd make Reagan look like Ghandi.

    Although that's all the more reason for not having a united socialist Europe.

    I'd assassinate him while he is announcing his candidacy to ensure he can't do any damage.
    Could I be your General after my daring escape from the FBI?

    I really don't get why people think I'm some hardcore libertarian. Just because I detest socialism and socialists does not mean I am opposed to welfare or public goods and services.

    I guess your unswerving hatred of socialism has everything to do with it. The fact that welfare and public services are essentially socialist ideas (even when part of a capitalist system) should cause you to hate socialism less than you do.

    They are not socialist ideas. They are the antithesis of socialism.

    You kidding? Those things validate the capitalist state and make prolonged class struggle impossible.

    Man, I'd rather be a commie than some scarf-wearing fool who thinks he's a commie.

    I see me,shaw, and demon are the only ones who think Kali got that special kind of swag.

    and I'm sure Kali has stressed he only wants to be a senator, though he is a senator for Kansas and no one gives a fuck about Kansas.

    Though I do wonder how Kali acts in real life, as I know many of you do.

    What would happen if I said that Reagan was an idiot, Conservatism is an idiotic way to run Government, as it advocates (at least in the U.S.) the weakening of it, and Reagan caused deficits and an economic down spiral?

    If you said it on a street? Murder. Americans have this fascination with Reagan.
