Things I’d Like to See Less of on Reddit (and Why)

1. Ron Paul: There’s no chance in hell I’ll vote for the guy.
2. Atheism: Not an atheist. Just don’t care.
3. Why Bush is Stupid and Evil: I disagree with his administration on Iraq, torture/waterboarding, and various domestic issues. Do I have to hate him too?
4. Yet More Examples of Why Iraq is a Horrible Mistake: I agree. Why wallow in it?
5. Tasers/Cops are Fascists: There are good cops and bad cops. Good cops don’t make the news.
6. Reasons Why Religion is Stupid: I’m religious. I guess I’m too dumb to understand these articles.
7. Reasons Why the Economy will Tank Soon/Environmental Disasters/Other Scary but Unlikely Events: I’m interested in potential problems, but an awful lot of these articles make it sound as if everyone will die tomorrow. In short, too much hype repels me.

  1. Basically because he’s a libertarian. While there are things I like about that viewpoint, I find it more extreme than I am both on the economic freedom end and on the moral freedom end.

    Also, race related statements that he’s supposedly made in the past make me less enthusiastic than I might be.

    Here’s a link to the sort of thing I’m talking about…

    Mind you that’s not the main thing (for example, I’d like some sort of secondary confirmation of these claims before I can feel confident about them)… I could go down other issues one by one. but that would make for a really long post. Some examples: I disagree with him on the details of immigration reform. Size of government: I’m pretty sure I’d prefer a larger one than he and most libertarians would prefer. Healthcare: I want everyone in the country to have access to healthcare. I’m sure he does too, but I doubt we agree on how that is to be accomplished…

    Mind you, I agree with him on Iraq, but that’s not the only issue I’m voting on. Anyway, I could go on and on, but the jist of it is that we don’t have the same priorities.
