    ...does altering your state of mind alter your political perspective, and in which direction?
    I am always willing to consider the efficacy of another man's political view when he's buying the liquor.

    Haven't had a drink in decades so I really don't know if it would

    When I'm sober, I have a strong dislike for a whole lot of people... When I'm drinking.. I just love everybody!

    I think they stay the same, just voiced with a lot more volume.

    This.

    Especially when I'm at a bar or event drinking $5 drinks.

    I am libertarian when I am sober.
    I blur the line between minarchist/anarchist when I am drunk.

    Looking back at my posts, I seem a lot more argumentative. I should drink more often then.

    i tend to become generally more humble, and open to the notion that my nation may not be right all the time.

    It depends on the situation. I'm generally ok if the beer is reasonably priced. When a place charges high prices I start accusing them of being communists that are trying to take money out of our capitalist economy to bring on the revolution.
