My coworker says Im an extremist


A libertarian one. Am I? I consider myself to be "this and that.". Here's some of my beliefs regardless if federal or local, most of which he disagrees with.

- There should be no corporate income tax.
- All personal income should be taxed the same, with zero preferential treatment of one over the other.
- I'd probably be ok with moving to consumption taxes only.
- Abolish affirmative action.
- Abolish corporate welfare/tax credits.
- No national language.
- No permit or requirement to have a gun.
- assault rifles legal.
- no min drinking age, but would be ok with 18.
- all drugs legal for adults.
- no prescription needed for most medicines.
- anyone can provide medical diagnostics services.
- prostitution legal for consenting adults.
- no censorship of TV/radio.
- no foreign aid.
- no nation building or policing, unless threat is imminent (obviously room for interpretation there, but that's unavoidable.)
- no inspection stickers.
- no subsidized student loans. grants only for the top 5% of students.
- abortion in first trimester = let it slide.
- abortion in second trimester = probably murder.
- abortion in third trimester = murder.
- no Obamacare.
- no right-to-work
- no protections for unions.
- all government activities are public.
- all police radios are unscrambled.
- all police cameras are available to watch with a delay.
- open borders so that we can get large influxes of something other than Hispanics. no offense to Mexicans, but I don't see massive waves of Asians as a bad thing.
- no government issued marriages, but civil union arrangements can be made between any group of consenting adults with a limit of only belonging to one union at a time.

You’re not a Libertarian and certainly not an extreme Libertarian.

You are a lite-Statist

No right to work? What would you replace it with?

Isn't that what right to work is?
