    Awesome. Then they now know I won't vote for their fucking anointed candidate, even when given only two choices. :)

    Heh. That's what I should have said. Oh, I don't mind taking polls, and have participated in many. But this poll was clearly skewed from the start. Still, I didn't play their game, so I'm at least happy about that. No idea. Reverse white pages phone number lookup pulled up a company called Twilio, which is not a polling company; it's a cloud dialing service.

    So, I was polled today, and the caller asked about my political preferences. She asked me if the elections were held tomorrow, would I vote for Hillary or Trump. I asked her about third party choices, but she said there were only two choices. I told her neither. Then she asked if I had to choose one or the other, who would I choose. I said neither. She said, "I'll put you down as a 'not sure'." But she'd already stated that there were only two choices, and 'not sure' wasn't an option, nor did I say I was not sure. I'm very sure. Then there were questions about state candidates.

    You said it. Two former governors on the same ticket is formidable, indeed. It must be one of the most mainstream, establishment tickets the LP has ever seen. And that's certainly a good thing for both the LP and the average voter, IMO. It gives the LP something it hasn't had in past elections: a veneer of respectability, which the media eats up. Already, I've noticed an uptick in media reports.

    I agree with her. If there were more minorities at the top levels of government, would we really have 1,000,000 black men in jail in the US?

    Tulsa, thanks very much for re-posting this list of 45 libertarian positions supported by Gary Johnson, with sources and links backing up each of them. Leave it to LE to dispute (poorly) four of them, and then claim that Johnson thus "fails" as a liberty candidate. :p It is clear, now, that LibertyEagle, Trump supporter, cannot be taken seriously. He's decided to campaign for a candidate who is completely anti-liberty, his mind is made up, and he'll do whatever he can to dissuade RPF-goers from voting for liberty candidates.

    A lot of people have spent a lot of time fighting for this cause and that cause. And I have seen most of them choose not to support someone who gives nuanced answers to what he or she will do about them, in favor of someone who categorically says he or she will fix it and categorically lied about that. Kind of like a couple of Bushes and abortion. And each time, I would say, can't you see they're lying? And they would say, I don't care, I'm going to send a message! And every one of those problems are still problems. No, actually I said both positive things and negatives things. But I'm sure it felt like one big commercial message to you, considering how much of your spin I un-spun along the way.

    It is hard not to, when you see repeated stupidity. Post after inane post praising that clown ,, He is a Showman,, and is playing on and to peoples anger. And there is a lot of anger to be played to. Mostly misdirected,,, but he will harness and focus it anyway. I expect no good to come from it. But is is a hell of a circus and it ain't over yet.

    You seem awfully damned sure the LP will steal more disgusted Republicans who refuse to march in lockstep than disaffected Sanders Democrats. You're the only person who's sure of that. Or are you really just afraid the LP will win?

    I remember a time when someone taking nuanced policy positions and trying to reduce them to big, broad, black-and-white brush strokes for propaganda purposes would lead you to call that someone various colorful names. If I were to call you those same colorful names, would you rush to waste the mods' time by tattling on me?

    As I said in another thread, if he wanted his rallies to be adult conversations he could either be less offensive, like the Pauls, or limit entry to his rallies, like the Bushes. Since he does neither, I can only assume he wants this stuff to happen so he can make his red meat Republican audiences giggle. And that's what he gets. So?

    I said he was Constitutionalist enough to take seriously a demand for military action from the duly elected Congress of the United States. Like with drone strikes, taking anything off the table is a way to tie your hands and let your enemies know how to jack with you. He's not stupid enough to do that. Even if he has no intention of doing it, it would be stupid to take it off the table. You will read into that whatever you wish. But be careful how you go about the forum libeling me.

    Y'all remind me of the McCain shills eight years ago. They all howled like lonely wolves when I suggested we might have to vote for Huckabee as a strategic thing to prevent McCain from locking down the nomination, but were all for 'strategic voting' if it got McCain the presidency. But it isn't strategic to hand the game to your enemy in the round of voting that really counts. What that is called is stupidity, and you are severely overestimating our stupidity. The circus is here. The benefits are ours to claim right now. The iron will never be hotter, and it's time for us to strike. Yes, you were right that nominating Trump is good for us. It's also done, and it's time for us to move beyond that strategy and go for the prize. Putting Trump in a position of power is not winning. It's losing, and we aren't stupid enough to do it.

    It isn't open borders unless he's giving away citizenship, which he is not. And work visas certainly won't be a dime a dozen, unless and until he gives us the freedom to resurrect the economy. You are arguing this stuff, yet all the evidence proves that Trump will be orders of magnitude worse. Did you notice that he was talking about IF Congress votes to intervene? At least he's actually being Constitutional about it, which is a refreshing change--and nothing either Trump or Clinton has promised to do. Well, we knew about this one. And I don't think anyone believes Trump's flip flop on the issue, any more than smart people believed either Bush when they promised to do something about the subject.

    I guess if any of that had ever happened at a Ron or Rand Paul rally, we'd know. But since neither ever made a habit of offending people just to make red meat Republicans laugh and giggle, I guess we'll never know. And since Republicans seem to no longer be capable of nominating someone who doesn't offend people just to make them giggle, I guess there'll never be another Republican president, either. I sure don't remember Reagan deliberately torpedoing his chances in the general election just to get a few primary votes.

    Since when is the "We got a badass over here" meme "gay"? It's been all over the interwebz for many moons and it's used by all sorts of folks. There are several samples in the various "bestest picture thread evarrr"-s.
  6. The reason I have no use for monarchies is it's complete pot luck what you get. If your generation gets a Victoria, you could be in worse shape (assuming her advisors aren't lying to her about what they're doing), but if you get an Ivan the Terrible you're screwed. I prefer a system that at least holds out hope for nonviolent revolution, whether people are generally smart enough to use it or not.

    And I'm pretty sure you meant neither Bismarck nor the kaiser.

    Chancellor von Bismarck
    President von Hindenburg

    You're right, I should have said the Kaiser, not Bismarck. :/ (My WWI history is rather rusty...I do remember Hitler suffered from mustard gas inhalation during that war and a bunch of other factoids) Yeah, monarchs have been somewhat fascist in certain occasions, but they always had incentive not to destroy their subjects' economy or their own respective societies as presidents and prime ministers or even legislators do. (such elected officials almost always leave office very wealthy and almost never face justice for their misdeeds) Generally speaking, the best to worst scale goes- voluntary association with government>hereditary monarchy>monarchy>classical republicanism>modern constitutionalism>democracy etc.

    "Can you not see that he's talking monarchy" (per your rep message) No, he was talking about National Socialism. Hitler was not a monarch at all. He nationalized industry and introduced a sort of fascism to Germany. If you read Hitler, he had no intention of taking the responsibility of a monarch. He was in fact critical of Bismarck, who was closer to a monarch than Hitler. (though he did try to stay in Otto's good graces while he was alive)

A little something for all of those who called me an idiot because I didn't believe the media's assurances of who is and who isn't anti-establishment:

Lindsay Graham reiterated Saturday that he has no plans to formally endorse Trump because it would not necessarily help Trump.

What has it to do with politics? Everything. Politicians piss us off, then try to misdirect our anger 'across the aisle' to people who are fundamentally exactly the same, but wear a different party label. The game is age old, but still works.

People are angry, but they are often in denial about it. They know they're angry, but they don't want to admit they're angry
