Per subverse minimum required CCP for downvoting submitted by Atko to announcements

TeardropsFromHell 0 points 12 points (+12|-0) ago

A Mod of the libertarian subverse here, is there some other way for us to be promoted. I think that politically oriented subverses have a vested interest in maintaining some CCP in order to prevent downvote brigades (and paid shills) from stifling content. Ours is currently set to 3 which I gained...

If it is a 2 bedroom apartment, shouldn't two income earners be trying to afford it? submitted by TeardropsFromHell to Libertarian

TeardropsFromHell 0 points 12 points (+12|-0) ago

Sorry for the editorialized title but this kind of thing drives me crazy. HuffPo goes on this tirade about how "Out of Reach found that the average hourly wage needed to rent a $1,006 two-bedroom unit in the United States is $19.35" but they never ask the obvious question of why is it expected for one person to earn enough income to support multiple people. It is an ideal that has only existed since the end of world war 2 and something that was the norm for about 40 years of ALL OF HUMAN HISTORY. It should be treated as the outlying case not the expectation. Never in the history of the world has one person, in the lowest economic bracket been able to support a family on a single income. So why not look at the cost of a two bedroom apartment for the two people that are going to be living there. Well lets just divide the number in two. So on average you need to make 9.68 an hour to afford a two bedroom house "comfortably" Comfortably means using less than 30% of your income for housing. Walmart hires at 9 dollars an hour now so I really don't want to hear all of this crying that "the poor cannot afford housing". No, a single poor person can't afford to house an entire family. Well no shit. They're poor. In times past the wife would do work on the side and the kids would help with an income but those things are either socially or politically unacceptable now. So the poor stay poor and the left screams to intervene when in reality their interventions caused the problem in the first place.

Should books that incite violence be banned? submitted by larebil to Libertarian

TeardropsFromHell 0 points 6 points (+6|-0) ago

If it isn't DIRECT violence against person or property than it should not be banned, and there shouldn't be a body with the authority to ban things to begin with.

I have a question. submitted by smokratez to ProtectVoat

TeardropsFromHell 3 points -2 points (+1|-3) ago

No it is akin to a newspapers opinion section as I said. And as long as there are no artificial barrier to entry in the subverse market it is not unlibertarian to decide what can or cannot be said on a libertarian forum. If you want to make /v/racist_libertarianism then go ahead I could not care less.

This should be fun. Remember the subverse rules please.

Weekly Wakeup - 07-24-15 - Election Edition: Rand Paul submitted by TeardropsFromHell to Libertarian

TeardropsFromHell 1 points -1 points (+0|-1) ago

I will start. His stance on immigration is wholly unlibertarian.

PAUL: I think that everyone needs to be for some form of immigration reform because the status quo is untenable. I think that if we do nothing, 11 million more people may be coming illegally, so we have to do something. But here's the conundrum, I think the conundrum that is really being pointed out by the children being dumped on the border right now--there's a humanitarian disaster of 50,000 kids being dumped on this side of our border. It's because you have a beacon, forgiveness, and you don't have a secure border. I am for immigration reform, but I insist that you secure the border first because if you have a beacon, of some kind of forgiveness, without a secure border, the whole world will come.

Issues with immigration stem completely from the welfare state. Without the public sector action in welfare, education, and healthcare the immigration debate becomes meaningless. 50,000 kids wouldn't be dumped at the border if there was no border to speak of. Let them come, let them work, let them live on their own without the help of the state. That is how all lives should be lived, immigrant or not.
