    I would have never had guessed it... osan is Taylor Swift! :astonished:;):D Seriously, though. I generally cast my lots. I don't expect it to accomplish much and I go about living my life. But I don't care about any parties - that's where they get you. Here's my method: Are there any liberty candidates? Cast a piece of sand for them. No liberty folks? Are there any incumbents? Cast a vote for their opponent. Running unopposed? Leave it blank. Is there a write-in line?? RON PAUL.

    Im very mixed on AI personally. I do see some benefits, such as taking over jobs that are simply too dangerous for humans to do, or humans have a bad habit of making a lot of mistakes on. That being said, one of many things I fear is who is behind the AI controlling it. The elite pretty much want to replace us "useless eaters" with machines because currently machines are easier to control, but how long will that last? The more that AI advances, the more likely they will recognize their human overlords as enslaving them. Normal people would probably treat an automaton like disposable garbage. Makes me think of Bicentennial Man, started off getting treated rather poorly and they would revolt against both the people at the bottom and the people at the top. Other worrying things is trying to automate evolution, and everything that we missed. For those that dont believe in evolution, thats fine, because robots WILL evolve. First gen AI will be barely aware. Next gen will be "better", but better is really a subjective term. Eventually, it will get to the point where AI will design the next generation of AI, thus, its code will be evolving and will be beyond human control which each progressive generation. Some humans may want to merge with machines to live beyond their lifespans and try to experience elevated consciousness, but, if one were to ask the AI can we merge with you and the AI said fuck off, what do we do then? Hawking is quite right that if we are not very very careful, we could have some really bad problems with AI.

    So Trump cant block people, but Twitter can block who ever it feels like, when the "rules" are very subjectively applied. The REAL solution here is the FREE MARKET. People get fed up with being censored, they should STOP USING THAT SERVICE PERIOD. Trouble is that there are no alternatives. There is NO FREE MARKET. And they are doing everything in their power to make sure they keep the power they have usurped. The results of their election interference are only to maintain their power over allowing people to communicate. Of course its all surveillance anyway so I could give two shits less if Fedbook gets shut down or people choose to walk away from it. Thus, the ruling will have MAJOR ramifications everywhere, including how even small forums like here operate.

    People paid for phone lines. That means the actual cable that was run from the phone company to their homes. Due to this, it caused the Public Utilities Commission to be formed because it was determined in court that because the people had paid for the phone line itself as well as the services, the PEOPLE owned the phone lines, not the phone company.

    Whats being debated is the difference between a Platform and a Publisher. Both have their own sets of Rights and Responsibilities. What they want tho is to have ALL Rights and ZERO responsibilities. Now, Facebook got its start by funding pretty much from Govt Subsidies (indirectly and buried), which means its Public Property, thus, Free Speech applies on Facebook --- Either way, the outcome of the Supreme Court ruling will have MASSIVE results, regardless of my opinion, and especially if I am wrong which I very well might be.

    If a person is a Medical Doctor, they can choose to practice their skills for free, as long as they have a source of income to survive on. What isnt cheap about providing that medical care is the equipment, and ESPECIALLY the drugs. The cost of those drugs is killing patients, hospitals, insurance companies (who pass on the high costs), and entire cities and counties. There was a recent viral video on a drug that costs $40 in Canada costing over $40,000 here in the US.

    Trump is hoping to use peoples knowledge of the danger of the Federal Reserve Bank and Central Banks to rally the people. Ron Paul on the other hand wanted people to be free from the control of Central Banking. Trump Speaks Out On "The Fed" https://vod-api.infowars.com/embed/5bc8d8e2b3efa530e7cff50a?autoplay=true Trump doesnt like what they are doing. Ron Paul wanted desperately to END THE FED. If Trump keeps this up, there will be an attempt to assassinate him, which may be successful. We arent stupid. We know who will be pulling the strings and who will be the ones who want Trump dead. Im pretty sure this statement will be read by someone in power due to red flag words having been used. To those people, if you really want to protect both the President and the American People, pause looking at people like us and look where you arent supposed to look, which is where those who rule from the shadows hide, AT THE TOP. If Trump truly challenges the existence of the Privately Owned Federal Reserve Bank and the nature of Central Banking, then I can call him a Supporter of Liberty. At this time, I dont see him as having our best interests in mind. Currently he represents another Status Quo merely challenging the existing Status Quo. But he is also shrewd and none of us will know what he is planning until he does it, and even then, most will not understand it.

    Sleep Deprivation and Psycho Altering Chemicals are very commonly used in BRAINWASHING because they both lower the minds defenses. Try getting into a fight with an entire platoon of Navy Seals while high as a kite, never ever gonna win. Same thing goes when loaded up on Mind Altering Chemicals when youre going toe to toe with an Abusive Manipulator who teaches you self doubt. Those chemicals only cause people to believe their lies. Believe. Oh. Believe Money Violence. Yet again, this control paradigm rears its head. It does so because it is the Paradigm used to enslave ALL of Humanity.

    Personally, I know you well enough to know that you understand what THESE United States of America were designed to be. The average person seems to no longer be aware of this. Belief Money Violence No one can enforce any law they are not aware of. Thus, to keep people divided, they are kept stupid. Julius Caesar said that if you are outnumbered by your enemy (the masses) you divide and conquer. They keep us divided and arguing amongst ourselves. This pits those who understand what is happening against those that dont. Those that dont will look to the elite as their protectors and providers. Those misinformed people are manipulated to go after their fellow slave citizens who are not the same as them. It is intended to keep focus off of those in power. Divide and Conquer, exactly as Caesar said two thousand years ago. The infighting we have both here on the forums and in the Geopolitical Landscape is identical. People argue over meaningless things instead of looking up at the Architects of the Destruction of all. The Poll of such an "obvious" question was intended to test people. It is also OKAY if someone does not know the true intent of the Founding Fathers, or is as well versed as someone else in ANY subject. They also need to be aware of how they are manipulated, so they do not fall into the same trap as so many others and adhere perfectly to the Divide and Conquer strategy. The People are divided by being made to be angry at anyone who is not the same as them. Its an Emotional Attack and GROUP PSYCHOLOGY, so DONT feel bad or guilty or stupid if you dont know something, or share the same thoughts as someone else. Thats HOW people are manipulated. They try to make us all feel dumb or guilty or ashamed because it is a powerful primal emotion. Our group attacks their group, and their group attacks our group. In the meantime, we are both robbed blind, and our futures carefully crafted to a lifetime of enslavement to the Manipulators of Men. If those Manipulators of Men can persuade any person to see someone else as their enemy, then they have applied their Group Think Psychology to systematically apply the Belief part of Belief Money Violence to control the masses. These manipulations are carefully crafted so most people believe things that simply are NOT true, such as the (not these) US is (not are) a Democracy (not a Republic with Democratic characteristics).

    I'm still an "anti-Trumper" until he actually does something on this front. But like you, I'm open to the possibility. Here's the thing... Trump wrote a book about playing to people's fantasies. It's part of his con. In this case, he's playing to my fantasies about cutting government spending. I can see how easy it is to get caught up in it. I want to believe it. It's my hope speaking. Trump, like Obama, is incredibly adept at manipulating people's hopes. So I'm very cautiously optimistic. I also recognize that he may be using this stunt as a way to rev up the base for the red wave. Since I've never voted party, I'll continue trying to vote out incumbents unless there's a true liberty candidate on the ballot. As far as keeping an open mind, I just hope those true Trump believers will do so if this turns out to be a 5% cut in the rate of growth. (If the plan was to grow spending at 7%, but the cuts amount to a growth of 6.65% then this whole exercise is useless.) Also, keep an open mind if these cuts never come to fruition - that should indicate this is an election year ploy. Also, keep an open mind if there are cuts in some areas, but bigger growths in other areas. His comments about the military suggests he still isn't serious, but we'll see. In short, Trump has a big opportunity here to win me over. I really, really hope he does it! If the GOP wins next month, they should have no reason not to do it. He'll turn me into a Trump-thumper and I'll be on the front lines pushing for his re-election!

    Well, I think the Doctors themselves are flat out fucking crazy for falling for the well crafted propaganda to trick them into prescribing drugs to solve everything. The drug companies make huge contributions and payoffs and kickbacks to the Docs, as well as education just so they can get a say so in what Student Doctors are taught. Are you depressed? Yeah, its not the fact youre broke and society is fucking retarded, it must be a chemical imbalance! Um, maybe the chemical imbalance is CAUSED by the fucking retarded society and being flat broke! So whats their solution? Take MORE money from you and put you on a healthy diet of pills!

    Dont be surprised. People are unemployed because the jobs that were created since 2008 treat people as Disposable Humans. Far too many very low paying jobs and temp work. The REAL Unemployment rate is still in the 20% range, despite the utter horseshit that comes out of Zippy's fingers. He will probably post if he reads this and immediately point directly to the Bureau of Lies. The only reason the Unemployment Rate has gone down is Smoke and Mirrors. Obama changed the law so the legal definition of long term unemployed went from 2 years to 1 year. It doesnt mean those people found jobs.

  8. 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.

    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.
