    LOL. I'm not going to admit to being old enough to remember that.

    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.

    Gotcha. It seems cyclical to me. No it's not "official" and I didn't mean to make it sound like that.

    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.

    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to phill4paul again. The problem with "states rights" is that it is, by definition, statism.

RLC chair trying to sabotage CPAC vote

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.
