I appologize to our next guest for the delay in the interview. I am begining to see the common sense wisdom of liberterianism in certain situations. Life is not fair and in most places except the government you pay for the services used. One does not pay the same rate for an oil change as a transmission and the government should use common sense in charging fees.
The Liberal Republican is in the UK and not affiliated with this Liberal Republican in the USA. I find it amazing how far leftists can not distinguish between Rudy Republicans and Religious Conservatives. Then again the usual suspects seem to think anyone to the right of Castro is a reactionary.
1 How does the UK raise taxes. In the USA we have the following taxes income, sales, real estate, energy, tobaco, alcohol and estate taxes. Do all of these taxes exist in the UK? What are your views on the flat tax where everyone pays a certain percentage?
2 What are your views on nuclear energy?
3 Is China a friend, foe or something else entirely?
4 What are your impressions of India? Do you think India will pass China as an economic power?
5 Americans on the far left seem to think that the UK health care system is ideal. Do you have to wait in long lines and fill out endless paperwork?
6 What are your thoughts about India. Do you envision India as a potential superpower?
7 Has the far left become reflexive in its anti-American mania in the UK?Some of the comments are quite funny. One deranged leftist stated that more gays are killed in NYC than the total number of murders in London. That took around three seconds to debunk.
8 Does the far left in theUK have an obsession with Israel? I am just amazed at the acceptance of blatant anti-semitism in the far left blogosphere. There is one poster who posts on familiar far left sites whose comments can be lifted from neo-Nazi sites and the left doesn't notice.
9 Is there a stigma to being a Communist in the UK?
10 Should future immigration to the UK be based on vocational skills with some genuine assylum cases as needed?
11 What are your thoughts on the EU and the UN ?
12 Are there liberterians in the UK? I have not run across any in the blogosphere.
13 How many major newspapers are there in your city and do they have different perspectives on the news?
14 What American TV shows can you see on local TV?
15 Is Dr Who really a kids show and the people in the US haven't figured it out?
16 Is the overall crime rate going up in your area?
17 Has nationalism become a dirty word in the UK?
18 Does a society have the right to determine its own norms, such as monogamy?
19 Have labor unions become too political and need to get back to focusing on the work place.
20 Is there a subltle bigotry against religious Christians from those on the left?
21 Are American Comic book titles like Spiderman and Batman readily available in the UK?
22 Are the Mom and Pop stores disappearing in your city?
23 What notable historic sites might we see within a short drive from your city?
24 What American authors if any did you read in school.
25 Should the government subsidize public transportation?
