    Prior to the start of the 2017 season there were boycotts being launched because Kaepernick didn't have a job after he refused to stand last season. Those protests are still going on. So there is no way to tell which protests are causing the NFL to lose viewers.

    Ad hominems prove you have lost the argument. Again "Every new territory the confederacy was to acquired had to, by the confederate constitution, allow slavery."

    The whole point of the fugitive slave clause of the constitution was to undermine state sovereignty. It was a reaction to the case Somerset v Stewart. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Somerset_v_Stewart In that case a slave escaped from Virginia to England and the slave owner wanted the slave returned by the English judge refused. A sovereign state should have the right to decide what to do with a fugitive. Any law on repatriation of fugitives is, by definition, an abrogation of state sovereignty. We wouldn't turn a missionary over to Iran to be tried for evangelism for example.

    LOL. The north wanted to destroy the south's economy by forcing it into economic growth (industrialization)? That's really about the most retarded argument on the subject I've ever read.

    Why are you against the free market? BET exists because there is a distinct culture in America that came from a different part of the world than the majority. And people who complain about "black" culture but don't complain about St Patrick's Day or Octoberfest or Cinco De Mayo or Italian food are, in my opinion, being wilfully blind at best and downright hypocritical at worst. Besides, at this point "blacks" don't even own BET. In the context of police brutality, Ron Paul was correct in acknowledging that it does disproportionately affect blacks. There is a wider issue that it affects everyone too.

    It depends upon what you identify as "BLM." Many people out protesting were definitely against the disproportionate use of law enforcement against blacks that Dr. Paul described. The co-opted BLM "movement"...not so much. But look at the "tea party." Ron Paul is called the godfather of the tea party and yet many of the so called "leaders" are drug warrior pro-interventionists.

    I haven't seen evidence that Bannon himself is a racist. I've looked for it. I have seen people on this forum who are clearly racists. Whenever someone uses a term like "white genocide" that person is engaging in right wing identity politics. People who support David Duke (and I've seen that here) are engaging in right wing identity politics. Bannon called the Charlottesville alt-right protesters "clowns." It was the asshole Trump that said they were "good people."

    Are you against this? Note that while these pastors aren't a part of the "official" BLM movement, they were supporting Kaepernick before Trump made it a national issue by being an ass.

    Note that I said: "Note that later Ron Paul went on to criticize the Black Lives Matter organization for its socialist agenda. But he was early on board with the idea that there is an alarming increase in police brutality and African Americans are disproportionately affected." So...did you not actually read what I wrote? Note everyone who is protesting the unjustified killings by police, which are disproportionately affecting blacks, support BLM Inc. Here is an example of pastors who prior to all of the hype supported Kaepernick by vowing to boycott the NFL and use the time to teach values to black youth. You can be against police brutality and not be socialist just like you can be against Obamacare and not be one of the Charlottesville alt-right racists.

    :rolleyes: Did you consider patriots flying their flags upside down when Obama was president publicly insulting American? Because I didn't. America is not a flag nor is it a song. America is its people. And it's not acceptable for American people, black or white, to be getting killed by police officers who are able to get off just by claiming they were "afraid" even if they had not just reason for their fear. Further the large scale NFL protests are because Donald Trump is a complete moron. Colin Kaepernick was already fired and Trump was demanding that he be fired. How anybody on this forum can stand with such a complete jackass, who is now showing his gun grabbing colors, is beyond me. Once police state USA starts affecting you directly, I'm sure patriotic 'Merikuns will appreciate you saluting the flag as you are hauled off to a FEMA camp.

    Thanks! So that clarifies it. We are already beyond the government banning weapons that are typical infantry issue. And to answer jllundqu, the case he was wondering about was the Heller case which upheld a ban on sawed off shotguns specifically because they are not what is a typical soldier uses.

    1) I didn't say they were "special targets" for extrajudicial killing. I said, and I quoted RON PAUL, that blacks are arrested and prosecuted for drugs at a much higher rate than they actually use drugs. Those are facts. Deal with them. 2) Black on black crime, while a problem, is on the decline as in crime in general. So is black teen pregnancy rates. 3) You have bigger things to worry about than bump stocks but that doesn't mean assaults on the second amendment should be ignored.

    You should care because banning bump stocks will not stop someone from going full auto and full auto is scary to the gun grabbers. Eventually the push will be to ban anything that can be made full auto.

    LOL. You can't read except for copying and pasting articles that agree with you. Every new territory the confederacy was to acquire had to, by the confederate constitution, allow slavery. If a state "barred" slavery, it would have to allow slave owners to "sojourn" with their slaves. Put your brain in gear. I know you have one. In the 21st century we can't keep up with who is or is not "sojourning" in our nation. There was no way with 19th century technology to be able to keep track of who had permanently moved in with his slaves and who was just "sojourning."

    :rolleyes: Wrong. Speaking for myself I was educated in private schools K-12 and my high school history teacher was a southern apologist and a blooming idiot. I'm not calling him an idiot because he was a southern apologist. When we would get our tests back I would have a C...until we went through the answers and I showed him from the book over and over again where he was wrong and I would have an A. And no it wasn't a "liberal textbook." He just didn't have a basic grasp of historical facts. And here is the fact of what we're talking about. You can couch it in "states rights" and "property rights" all you want to but at the end of the day the "property right" being argued about was human beings. Ask yourself this question. Why did the slave owning states demand a fugitive slave clause in the constitution in the first place? Seriously? I know the answer, but I wonder if you do. I doubt it.

    That was the essence of the article posted. How dare NFL players take a knee over police brutality because....blacks are killing blacks. Of course the real reason the protests spread from 5 to few hundred is because Trump is a moron and decided to attack the NFL for not firing Colin Kaepernick....when the NFL had already fired Colin Kaepernick.

    https://thelibertarianrepublic.com/ron-paul-support-black-lives-matter/ I support the black lives matter movement. I have long advocated an end to the drug war, police militarization, and other threats to liberty that disproportionately victimize African-Americans. However, I wish some of the black lives matter movement’s passion and energy was directed to ending abortion. Unborn black lives also matter. Note that later Ron Paul went on to criticize the Black Lives Matter organization for its socialist agenda. But he was early on board with the idea that there is an alarming increase in police brutality and African Americans are disproportionately affected. I will now return this forum to its regularly scheduled Trump worship and right wing identity politics.

    So you are okay with police brutality because....black on black crime. :rolleyes: Only the killings of puppies matter on RPF I suppose. Here is a stat the Walter Williams apparently is ignorant of. Violent crime in general, and that includes black on black crime, has been steadily declining for decades while shooting by police of unarmed civilians is going up. Do you have an explanation for that?

    Except this isn't the result of an "organized group." Colin Kaepernick decided to protest police brutality. He didn't where a "Black Lives Matter" t-shirt or do a press conference about social justice or anything like that. Most of the players who are not protesting were not protesting at all until Donald Trump made an asshole of himself. Seriously, if you are going to be mad at anyone over this, be mad at Trump. At the start of the season there were 5, count, 5 players protesting. Kaepernick had in effect been fired. (His contract was not renewed). Trump made the protest spread league wide by his stupid comments. And the fact is blacks are disproportionately killed by cops! Don't by the Stefan Molyneaux bvllshyt. Ron Paul laid it all out in 2008. A good proxy for the just us system is the GWOD (global war on drugs). Blacks and whites are equally likely to use drugs, but blacks are far more likely to be arrested. Of those arrested blacks are disproportionately convicted. Of those convicted, blacks have longer prison sentences. If this is a lie, Ron Paul told it. But it's not a lie. It's the facts. Blacks being disproportionately arrested equals more police encounters. More police encounters equals more chances for some unarmed person to get shot. It's not that cops are walking around looking to shoot blacks. But disproportionate enforcement of stupid laws and militarization of police are leading to predictable results.

    https://www.mail.com/news/politics/5563368-white-house-nra-congress-agree-regulating-bump-sto.html#.7518-stage-hero1-1 I told ya so. Actually Donald Trump told ya so but most of y'all didn't listen. In his book "The America We Deserve" he wrote: "I generally oppose gun control, but I support the ban on assault weapons and I support a slightly longer waiting period to purchase a gun." Now, let's see. I bet some Trumskiites will say "But a bump fire ban isn't the same as an assault weapons ban." And I would say.....you're right. But what do you think will happen when the next mass shooter uses the "rubber band bump fire" trick? See: http://www.mynameisfoxtrot.com/journal/2014/5/7/diy-bumpfire-1022-stock.html

Which is not at all to suggest that Ron owns the vote of Johnson supporters, just that if Ron Paul supporters think it won't matter to divert a little voting Johnson's way, it very well could.
