    Libertarians are against generalizations...in general.

    You didn't have a poll option for how I feel about them. At least not one that I think is close enough.

    Personally I hate generalizations and try to be specific as much as possible. However I also realize that there are occasions where generalizing is acceptable.

    For instance when talking about history. I feel that it is acceptable to talk about how the Spartans often had homosexual intercourse, even though I'm quite sure that there had to at least be ONE that never did. (more than likely even more) Or that Egyptians built the pyramids. Even though I am sure that the Pharoh never once pulled pulled one of them rocks.

    On the flip side I hate it when people generalize things like legal and illegal immigration and just say "immigrant/s". Or when someone says that whites/blacks are racist. Not everyone is racist despite what some people here like to claim. (and I would challenge anyone to prove that I am racist in another thread if you think that I am lying) And yes I hate it when people generalize republicans/democrats etc etc.

    Also what I found ironic about your poll choices is that they too are generalizations.

    All generalizations are bad.
    Get informed: UNICEF foreign adoption policy is killing orphans and the US gives $132 million to UNICEF every year. Stop the madness.

    haha this is some funny ****.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
