BTW EPA rulings ar a good example here there is no rule of law involved.  Some committee of the unelected get to decide how and if you can use "your "property".   It erodes property rights.

Just curious. What do you think of chinese immigrant?

Every chinese colony like Singapore are very meritocratic. However, the chinese are not libertarian. Singapore, for example have restrictions on freedom of speech and have harsh laws against drug.

The blacks are more liberal than chinese.

The jews are quite libertarian but overwhelmingly democrat.

Generally positively.  Asians in the US tend to not cause crime and complete school, very productive.  So they don't impose social costs on others.  Asians in the US don't vote at a high rate, but it's generally centrist Dem leaning.   My general impression is the Chinese-Americans don't prefer the sort of authoritarianism of China - just the opposite.

Not so much.  Blacks have been pandered to by the Dem party - first be creating a belief that they are victims, and then by offering cash via welfare.  They've been crippled by the Dems.  Blacks are generally socially conservative;

their redistribution-ism seems to be self-interest from the Dem pandering.

NO!  They are a core group of the progressive left.  Yes there are libertarian outliers, a lot of leading thinkers wrt libertarianism,  but it's not common.  I'd have to argue their consensus position is quite socialistic.  A lot of government supported biz in Israel for example.  Voting pattern in the US is quite progressive.

Terms like "liberal" "conservative" aren't very meaningful w/o context

Free trade guys. It's great. It even benefits Chinese immigrants and "blacks".
