    Classical liberalism is closer to libertarianism in ideology, your just a mild conservative i'd say.

    I have to ask though, what are your thoughts on the American Dream?


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    I believe it is a great ethos with a legendary status - it has been used by a range of different equality activists with Martin Luther King being the most famous example. In a way, the American Dream is a Socialist idea with a strong emphasis on people being equal to one another. Unfortunately, the American Dream has been used as an excuse by certain loonies (e.g. Donald Trump) to defend their absurd policies. The idea is good but it is being manipulated far too often.

    I know ..
    However UKIP said they are classical Liberals hence " Hazzer the classic liberal "
    Ukip have often tried to claim that they are libertarian but typically most of their policies use libertarian means to achieve very non-libertarian ends and i'm an 'actions speak louder than words' type of guy. I know many libertarians who consider Ukip to be tainting the cause.

    If you admit that you are authoritarian, what made you think you might be classical liberal or libertarian?

    Equality of opportunity is not socialist, that's equality of outcome. The American dream is aspirational and based on squiring material success, not very socialist at all.

    Was your accumulator live? :laugh:
    I legit only got Arsenal, it was a £2 free bet so nothing to worry about, though winning the £200 would have been grand.

    It is a combination of elements which is why I don't fully support it.

    Thoroughly deserved league win. Proof that spending several millions on a couple of players rather than playing as a whole unit doesn't necessarily win you silverware. Hopefully we'll see more teams inspired by this season and going on to challenge the traditional top six.

    As much as i congratulate them it's probably worth saying that on almost every metric Tottenham have beaten them and Arsenal were 5 points clear as recently as January.

    This has more to do with consistency and Arsenal losing it (i am now pro-exit for Wenger) than Leicester being brilliant.

    Not as annoying as brexit.
    I'm annoyed at one of the pupils at my school because they said they will vote to leave for the lols because they think leaving would be funny.

    I have no idea, but it should just be over and done with. It's very irritating.

    If it's who I think you are thinking of there was one and it was completely clean.
