    It's not really a fail, no. As Ender alluded to, great minds have been restating what I said (more like I restated what they said) in one way or another since the days of the Roman philosophers and perhaps even longer, not to mention nearly every founding father in US history. They had a very low tolerance for sheep. It sounds from your reply that you also want an easy button. In your mind, if you just create a system where rapists can't thrive, then you can stop rape and move on to something else, perhaps. Ironically, such a system can only exist if the victims take it upon themselves to fight back. If the victims perpetually avoid confronting the rapists, then who do you blame? They just don't want to be bothered with the responsibility, I guess, so don't blame them. A better example perhaps, that won't excite emotional tendencies as much as the 'rape case' you mention, would be gun-free zones, and the prevailing mentality of the people who support them. It's pretty easy for us gun owners to look at the "victims" such as the residents of Chicago and assign blame to them for basically being stupid and neglecting to notice the pattern in the relationship between gun-free zones and crime. I don't see too many posts on this forum attacking gangs or lowlifes, because people here have accurately identified the crucial part of the problem, which is the fact that the victims themselves have established an environment which allows low-lifes to thrive. They welcome it, they clamor for it. They demand their gun-free zones. And, they reap what they sow. Simple as that. A much more powerful message would be if the people of Chicago stacked the bodies of these thugs up near the city limits signs and said, 'Welcome to Chicago, play nice.' They would no longer be victims, and no one would dare blame them either.

    I think the blame always comes back to the people. No matter what system of government you have, or even if you have no government at all, if people exhibit no interest or willingness whatsoever maintain their freedom, they will lose it. Complacency and apathy are good terms for it.

    Georgia at the same time was expanding tax breaks. The thing is that you can still play 'pick winners and losers' by playing with the tax code, so in a way, I can kind of see how some people see them as subsidies. I mean, say I've got a business already established in Georgia, but my competitors from out-of-state get tax breaks for relocating that I can't get (because I'm already here), that doesn't sit well with me.

    Indeed. We may be near, or may have already passed, a tipping point. Rand's attempts to reach out to the black communities yielded negligible results. . Ron Paul typically frequented liberal strongholds in college campuses, with people climbing up trees to hear him speak (Berkeley), but this never translated into votes. Apparently it's too much to ask people to switch party affiliation to support an individual candidate over a party. In other words, dig in and keep your head low.

    Trump assumes there isn't already a trade war going on. This is all a bit like saying, 'if I want to sell you something, it's fine, just buy it. But if you want to sell me something, I have to punch you in the face first.' And then I'm gonna be like, 'If you don't abide by this deal, things are gonna get ugly!!!!' lol. China's empty threats are empty.

    Yeah, only real google cars I've ever seen were little eco-friendly clown cars. The police might as well have been driving a SWAT tank with a google sticker and ice cream menu on the side. Looking out the window with a helmet and goggles on, like uh, 'we're selling fresh cuts of meat, take a look'. Kudos to the professor for catching it though.

    Are you guys sure that it isn't just something much more simple, as in differences coming to light now that Ron Paul will never run again? 2008 was the pinnacle of our strength. I'm not talking about the delegate scoreboard, or electoral maps, or polls, or any of the conventional measurements of political strength. I'm talking about the energy, strength, diversity, ingenuity (the blimp!), excitement, and FUN that we had trying to get Ron Paul elected. In my opinion, 2008 is when the movement was at its strongest, and it was a plateau, apparently. I haven't had fun fighting for liberty since 2008. 2012 was some sort of super-secret delegate strategy something or another which turned out to be a half-assed effort on the official campaign's part. 2016 has been a clusterf*** of epic proportion. Now, people just won't relax, evidenced by threads like this where we start considering purging people who have been around since 2008 or longer based on their decision for a fall-back candidate when it really doesn't matter because no liberty candidate is gonna win the white house at this point. You guys are taking the fun out of it and making it feel like some g--damned job.

    I'm guessing the same thing that happened to all of his primary challengers and opposition PACs who couldn't resist attacking him. She loses. It would be wiser for the DNC to spend the money trying to downplay Hillary's shortcomings, spruce her up a bit. But I'm predicting she will go waaay overboard with the attack ads and people will just get fed up with seeing them over and over again.

    I'm pretty sure if Ron Paul were VP, Donald Trump would not get shot. The globalists fear Ron Paul even more than they fear Trump. In any case, the VP's role necessitates that he stays out of the public eye. It would be a very unfulfilling position for Ron Paul, as he would have had more influence over matters when he was a mere Congressman.

    A VP doesn't do anything anyway. His only job is to hide in a bunker for 4 years in case the president gets shot. And break ties in the Senate, which pretty much never happens.

    I believe if not for Cruz, Rand Paul would have probably been in the 2nd place spot at the moment, and I doubt Rand would have dropped out before the convention. Cruz basically just waited for Rand Paul to take the lead on issues in debates and then he'd swoop in behind him, parrot him, and then get all the credit. He had very few ideas of his own. There was only room in the running for one pro-Constitution, limited-government candidate in the race, and Cruz undeservedly assumed that position from Rand.

    This is all you need to know. The $20 million would be better spent trying to polish Hillary, than give Trump any press, even negative press. Meanwhile the media will interview Trump to respond to every attack ad, and he'll probably spend $20,000 to fight back.

    Then the democrats haven't learned anything from Trump's primary challengers, same as the people on this forum. It's gonna be a $20 million endorsement for his campaign. Attacking Trump makes him stronger. If you want to defeat Trump, you're gonna have to ignore him. But you can't resist. He's that ol' bug-zapper on the bayou drawing the moths in for the shock.

    Meanwhile Trump continues to demolish opposition without spending a fraction of that. Hillary isn't going to walk over him like you predict. Only if you remove Trump's egotistical character flaw from the equation. In Trump's world, ego drives him more than friendships. If he wants to be president, he'll have no trouble viewing it as him versus Hillary, and the voters are certainly going to view it that way, which is what matters most.

    Hillary has absolutely no personality, no sense of humor, and a complete inability to engage voters on a personal level. I have no idea why anyone as colorful as Bill Clinton, the guy who went on MTV playing saxophone to engage young voters, would ever choose her as a wife, but it might explain why he cheated on her. If I were married to someone who never smiled, and dressed up in unfashionable frumpy gray suits with the same pearl necklace around her neck every day, I'd probably cheat too. Then again sometimes she does step it up a notch and change into navy blue frumpy suits. Most of her attire makes her look like, a head poking out the top of a box—a bland look which matches her even blander, near-stoic demeanor. Trump, on the other hand, has tons of personality. Multiple personalities, even (LOL). He can simultaneously rub people the wrong way and they'll turn around and love him for it. I really think people are underestimating Trump's potential in the general election. Trump basically nailed it when he said all Hillary has going for her is the woman card. She can probably make a lot of promises to minorities and try to snatch up that card as well, but Trump is reaching for the 'everybody else' card and that one is the winning hand. Hillary has an inability to initiate a connection with voters in any way, so unless they proactively come to her (as women and latinos have), she isn't going to be able to engage them. I'd like to see her try to go up to blue collar democrats and try to explain to them how she can beat Trump on anti-globalism, when she can't even manage a smile and a proper greeting. If somehow Bernie manages to get nominated I'd say it'll be an interesting fight. He has substantially more personality than Hillary.

    Sadly, there's not going to be a 'unifying candidate' with a nation as ideologically divided as the U.S. has become, and because the vast majority of Americans want to be handled at the highest level of office. A nation of 300,000,000+ people will NEVER be happily governed under one central government. Even the majority of Republicans don't seem to understand their party's namesake, and behave as though they would prefer a national democracy over returning control to state and local governments, much less the individual person. People like Sasse are of course the exception to that rule, but by and large people do not understand the concept of a republic, or perhaps they understand it and simply do not want it.

    There's something unique about Trump though. The more they attack him, the stronger he gets. I can't think of any candidate in recent history that has been able to weather such a barrage of attacks and come out not-only unscathed, but stronger. The only thing they could try to stop the guy at this point right now is to ignore Trump, which isn't likely to happen. Attacking Trump makes him stronger. It's a political anomaly. Other candidates failed to realize it during the primary debates. Many on the forums haven't realized it yet. I tried to say that Rand should probably let others on stage do the Trump-attacking and let them fall by the wayside, but even Rand was tempted to target Trump like a bug drawn to the bug-zapper.
