    Let that be a lesson to them about the perils of doing business with the government. Perhaps they should not have been so excited about the government forcing people to do business with them.

    I wasn't necessarily referring to Sanford here. To be honest, I've no idea what Sanford did or Trump did to put the two of them at odds. I was making reference to the libertarians who recoil in horror at the mention of populism and see it more like a turd to be scraped off the boot than something that could actually propel them into power (or non-power, considering how they'd "rule"). Trump knows how to use populism to his advantage. I'd be taking notes. But, as I said, as soon as something becomes popular, for some people it loses its appeal, and I think that's a major problem which has plagued the libertarian party's attempt to break into the mainstream. ThePaleoLibertarian is absolutely right in his comment above. Either the libertarian party starts using populism to their advantage or they will continue to wallow in obscurity. Heavens no! Can't let the libertarian party be associated with that. :rolleyes:

    One of those rare occasions I'm gonna agree with the zipster. You'd have to have really, really high hopes for reunification to happen. This isn't like East/West Germany. East Germany was under the control of a foreign power, a rather abusive and controlling one at that. When it came time to reunify no one had to tell the Germans to get ready. They were ready from the start. I think North Korea is a bit different. It's internal. The Korean War was essentially a civil war, with outsiders poking their noses into it, and civil wars are seldom settled without one side being a clear victor. All of North Korea's former communist allies have dabbled in capitalism and free enterprise, and while China has North Korea's back in a fight if one breaks out, I don't think even the Chinese subscribe to the same economic philosophy that they once influenced North Korea to adopt. North Korea is truly the last to change, if it changes. No outside entity is forcing them to subscribe to communism. They're doing it themselves. Now, if North Korea goes capitalist (or at least, some Chinese version of limited capitalism), it makes the process easier. I don't think that the South Koreans will go for communism. So as it stands there's a huge elephant in the room. Who governs over two diametrically opposite systems? Kim Jun Un will say it is him. The South Koreans will probably not go for that.

    But populism isn't hipster. Gotta go against the flow, even if the flow sometimes briefly flows in a direction that benefits us. As soon as it becomes popular, it isn't cool anymore, and we're out.

    Guess we'll see. I'm pessimistic but not because I think Trump doesn't really want it. I think he'll be sabotaged by the deep state.

    Good point. For max political gain, these types of events need to happen sometime in October during election years.

    Weapons manufacturers don't really need a war. They just need governments to think there will be a war. The boogeyman must not be allowed to die.

    About the only thing Kim Jung Un has to fight with would be automated weapons like missiles (including those with nuclear warheads). His troops—though there might be a lot of them—are eaten up with parasites. I'll be amazed if he actually gives up the nukes But I think North Korea's leaders know that communism failed them. They just haven't told the population yet. I'd say economic changes would be more likely than disarmament. Whatever happens, you've got two rather narcistic, ego-driven leaders who WILL NOT walk away from the table without looking like they've accomplished something great, and weakness and defeat is not the image they are going for. I'm also wary of what the deep state has in mind to sabotage the prospect of peace in Asia. I can hear the defense contractor stocks whistling in a freefall to the bottom of the charts. That won't be tolerated.

    Fk having neighbors. I suppose we will reap what we sow by crushing the entrepreneurial spirit in young people. No doubt it will be more beneficial for these kids in their later life to learn how to apply for welfare.

    Rand Paul. An ophthalmology surgeon. 2020. "Helping America gain its vision back." A Presidential campaign is too fitting for him to pass up. :D

    There would be a lot of pissed off NRA members if they thought their money was being wasted on the likes of Warren. (not saying they don't waste it on a lot of other stuff)
