Please accept this birthday cake... which I have deliberately eaten in its entirety in recognition of how you tried to Commend yourself through the Security Council for harbouring a lot of fascists, so no cake for you. I mean, like, for pity's sake... :rolleyes:

You think we actually care about a fascist region??? :rofl:

We don't care that your region turned 3. I'd advise everyone to stear clear of this, especially if you don't want to be labeled a fascist sympathizer.

Triggered much? Lol ease up. I congratulated them, and I am a bloody Libertarian Centrist.

("Libertarianism is not conservatism. Libertarianism is not anarchism.

Libertarianism stands for small government, low taxes, and the whole Bill of Rights. Libertarianism rejects race hatred, homophobic bigotry, religious persecution, and anti-intellectualism, not to mention the tyranny of the powerful unchecked by obedience to just law.

Real Libertarianism is Libertarian Centrism.

How are we to tell Libertarian Centrism apart from radical anarchism, Republican-lite conservatism, or conspiracy theorism? I offer a few thoughts.

Libertarian centrism is about real politics. We libertarian centrists do not agree about everything. Here are litmus questions. Litmus questions are not questions that define libertarianism. Litmus questions are questions that let you separate the sheep from the goats, the solid libertarians from the hangers-on who are not libertarian at all. An issue can be a good litmus test even though it is not an important issue. An important issue may not be a litmus test.

Warning: Like any other group of libertarians, Libertarian Centrists do not march in lockstep on every issue.

What do Libertarian Centrists on the whole believe?

We are 100% pro-choice, because government has no valid business running women's lives for them. That means we reject government bans on abortion.

We are confident: All Americans are entitled to equality in marriage, adoption, divorce, and access to military service.

We state with certainty: Slavery was the American Holocaust. Confederate apologists are rightly grouped with Holocaust deniers, and are shunned by all decent people. People who claim that the Civil War was not about slavery should be encouraged to read the actual statements by southerners at the time, because they have been hoodwinked by racist filth who sought to build our party by polluting it with supporters of the KKK and the White Citizens Councils.

We observe that Thomas Jefferson for all his flaws correctly wrote: “That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men'. It is only through government, limited government, that men and women will stay free. The people who claim non-aggression means that we have agreed to reject all taxes and governments are anarchists, not libertarians.

As supporters of our actual Constitution, however much it may need improvement, we reject the so-called “States-Rights” doctrine. The so-called 'States Rights' doctrine, claiming that states may keep African-Americans from voting and women from having abortions, is un-American. Politicians who say 'leave it up to the states' are an opposite of libertarian.

We firmly proclaim: While there have been conspiracies, conspiracy theorism is not libertarianism. The incoherent mutterings of conspiracy theorists, including 9/11 truthers, central banking foes, and 16th amendment deniers, offer nothing to the Libertarian political movement. They also have nothing to do with libertarianism. When they claim to be libertarians, they should be politely ignored. When they claim to be Republicans, well, cheer them on. The Bush Republican War Party and the not-at-all-conservative-party of torture have earned whatever plagues descend upon them, and the conspiracy theorists are indeed a plague.

We believe in modern science. The opponents of fact-based knowledge including evolution deniers, anti-immunizationists, flat-earthers, global warming deniers, not to mention the people who still claim that the ozone holes could not possibly be caused by chlorofluorocarbons fit in well in the Republican Party, where their explanation that belief in evolution, etc. is due to conspiracies will warm the cockles of the conspiracy theorists.

America needs an effective Libertarian political movement.

Only Libertarian Centrism offers the firm foundation on which a successful libertarian political movement can be built.

The home of that movement remains to be decided.")

How can someone "ease up" on a region that has proved themselves to be untrustworthy people who do it just for the attention?

Yea so? And I take it your Mr. Perfect who has done no wrong? Everyone has Fuck up friends. Like this morning, I woke up real early and I was so tired I accidentally drank my mixed eggs I mixed for scrambled eggs instead of my orange juice.

There's a difference between "not being perfect" and "intentionally screwing stuff up".

Nope - for starters, I'm a lady and I'm certainly not a fascist!

Would you use that explanation if you were aware of the CCD's background, or if you were praising a region like Nazi Europa instead?

Congratulations

No matter what others may say, a Region, no matter the ideology, staying active is good for everyone, and the game. Congratulations!
