A breakdown of the Axiom's involved in the issue... Moral Issues Axiom 1: Having a monopoly does not mean that you have done anything morally wrong, all of your property and clients can be justly acquired. Axiom 2: Antitrust laws only have value when they are back by forcing others to comply, such as with breaking up a monopoly by taking control over resources. Axiom 3: It is immoral to apply force against others when they have not done anything wrong.

For the sake of argument, let's say you statement is correct, that the economy did boom when there was a top tax rate of 91%. Question- does that make it right? Did the people being taxed 91% agree to this? One can presume they didn't, so what is the justification for this tax? Does the benefit to the whole ("the economy") make it morally and ethically acceptable to tax someone at 91%? What about 92%? Or 93%, 94%, ... 99%? Why not just take it all if it makes the economy boom? Why not, since that is the objective here. So let's say that the people being taxed 91% didn't agree to this, but were fine paying for services they utilized such that they helped pay for the roads they use, they pay for local fire and police protection, patent filling fees, court costs and such. Let's say this voluntary exchange doesn't come close to 91%, should the rest still be taken? Can you explain how it makes it right for a group of people to lay claim to the wages and earnings of someone else in this case? Remember, the government is nothing more than a group of people.

"America has the highest gun violence in the world" (reference to murder rate) Murder is a terrible thing and certainly no one wants to see one of their loved ones murdered. To directly answer your question, I don't know anyone who is delusion on the dangers of guns, guns are designed to hurt/kill, so they are inherently dangerous. Most people know this.

    To answer, it's of value to examine how it's down now. This is a framework that can apply for many similar situations... 1. There is some identification of a problem. Scientist / researchers ID that some human behavior is causing a long term issue. 2. There is campaign to grow awareness of the problem, people debate the research and the real impact of the issue. 3. Coalitions are built to set a policy to fix the problem. 4. Laws get past, people get notified. 5. Funds are used to enforce the law. 6. Forced is used to make violators comply with the law. 7. If too many people disagree with the law a war of sorts breaks out.

    To both Josh and Bryan (I'll repost on Bryan's) my box is full (my paid member status went away, not an emergency at all but I'm not getting messages if you sent them to mods). I took a bunch off but I'm going to wait before purging as drastically as I would have to to make it work. One guy's name is on who paid to have it removed, and he might have more reason to need attention, I reported his post to the report forum and will move it to mod forum.

    Meanwhile if this goes down again I recommend you use the Forum Twitter account: https://twitter.com/RonPaulForums you can get a message out to me and others who use twitter and we'll spread it. I'm @usernamenuse https://twitter.com/usernamenuse

    Oh my God, Josh - we need to talk apparently. I'm sarcastic, but I have more hope for the movement now than most of the people in the thread. I hope you're PMing them to remind them that Ron Paul said our best hope is to stay active in the party.

    That was uncalled for. She and I have a history. She is a democrat, who thinks she's entitled to Social Security because she was a financially irresponsible single Mom. Now she's here talking people into leaving the GOP - the direct opposite of what Ron Paul says in both instances. (And by the way, I don't give negs. In my experience, it's an asshole move.)

    We could really use the Moneybomb widget at the top of the forum with only a week left. It's vital for building fans and pledges to maximize our fundraising total. Here's a link to the thread or you can check the messsages I sent you. Thanks.
