    They definitely recorded every speech but there were some issues with recording the sound I know, due to the venue having technical difficulties.

    This is a third party video - posted without comment. There is a certain balance / value of understanding what is being said / done on the web vs letting there be open promotion and organization in favor of this. As said here, no one is soliciting for donations, setting up money bombs or the like. We're just not going to be a complete echo chamber and put our heads in the sand either. This video helps provide some context to the political movement that is out there, which is obviously not in line with our Mission. There is no intent for there to be a double standard, you're welcome to PM me specific issues or just flag posts that violate the guidelines. Our goals is to moderate to the guidelines. Your bans have been for pushing white nationalism which is something that we have a major issue with since it can poorly reflect on the sites Mission.

    Let's please keep everything civil. Could you please PM me with any kind of evidence that a Mission supporting member here supports gun control? This is not something that we've seen at all so I'd like to hear your argument (without public attacks). This type of logic has been disproved and rejected here endlessly, please try to use functional arguments to support your positions.

    Scotland Yard is to set up a unit which will be tasked with investigating offensive comments posted on the internet. The police force, Britain's biggest, plans to spend £1.7 million to set up its Twitter cop-squad. The Home Office will also be putting £452,756 into the Online Hate Crime Hub, which is due to run for two years. Five detectives will run the squad, supported by army volunteers who will be trained in the art of quashing online trolls.

    Liberty, this small little word is one that I believe is of the cornerstones of human existence. This word has caused great wars like the American Revolution to commence and it has caused intellectual arguments from thinkers like F.A. Hayek to Ayn Rand. To me, this simple word is the reason why I wake up every morning. I know that I can make a difference that may affect those around me who are suffering from the lack of this little word. Often times, I spend my days feeling discouraged by the environment that I see our country slowly slipping into. However, after these four days spent at the Young Americans for Liberty National Conference, I cannot help but smile. Yes, I may have about six blisters scattered on my toes causing me pain. I may have only slept around five hours each night. Assurance from the events that have transpired, I know that I will #BeTheNext. Continued: https://www.theodysseyonline.com/meeting-ron-paul

    The range would be based on intent, which isn't always known. Some people do use negative collectivism as a form of hate, others use it to draw conclusions about someone that may or may not be true. I agree that knowledge is never bad, but what one has to be careful of is false knowledge - this is something that the mainstream pushes hard and why people think they understand liberty (and can celebrate it) while they have very little liberty. That's a statistic, and what can be concluded from it? Really, the only true conclusion is that 65 percent of men in that group spend time in jail - any other conclusion would need its own study / analysis. You can't otherwise extract information where there is none.

    Over the last week I attended the 2016 Young Americans for Liberty National Convention, where Ron Paul opened the convention with his keynote speech. Also speaking at this year's convention were Justin Amash, Penn Jillette, Judge Andrew Napolitano, Glenn "Kane" Jacobs, as well as Julie Borowski, Jack Hunter, Matt Kibbe, and many others. You can find MANY MORE photos from the convention HERE: https://flic.kr/s/aHskFAugW6

    Thanks. I've never seen it as a problem to discuss issue in an intelligent and civil manner, so this is all fine. We don't ban people on a whim, either. Yes, I would consider it to be "positive collectivism". As I said, "negative collectivism" is "At best, this is lazy and anti-intellectual. At worse, it is hateful." So I would consider "positive collectivism" to be lazy and anti-intellectual if you are trying to make a functional point. I understand it can be a harmless way to offer praise or admiration, but saying something like "<some race> people tend to be very honorable" - doesn't mean anything from a tangible perspective.

    I see the issue as casting negative characterizations of the groups, hence the "negative collectivism". As said, it can range from anti-intellectual to hateful. Collectivism on its own, such as for study of tends, etc, isn't inherently a problem.

    Sure, the point is it leads to no change in your liberty. Right, no issue. So possibly of interest for some academician, but nothing for policy.

    I don't mind people attacking me as he was doing, as long as there isn't gross disinformation about me or the site which he never did. After coming off a temp ban, let's just say he decided to exit the site with a nuclear option (shared destruction).

    I put in what I could. FWIW, all donations (including previous ones) will get you site membership benefits, dollar-for-dollar for everything donated. So donate $20 you'll get a year of bronze, $30=18 months, etc.

    If some group on the other side of the Earth self-imposed ideas that were antithetical to liberty, what would you do? If some group supported ideas that were antithetical to liberty that had no effect on you, would you care? If some group tried to take away your liberties would it not be self-defense to defend your liberty? Does it matter what the source of these antithetical liberty ideas is, be it culture or anything else? Proof? Can you demonstrated how the IQ test doesn't have a bias? For the sake of argument, assuming this was true - so what? Then what?

    racism = Collectivist negativity along racial lines. collectivist - viewing humans as members of groups rather than as individuals. collectivist negativity - a means to attack a group of people by lumping them into a group and assigning some negative attribute to all the people in that group, regardless of the truth. At best, this is lazy and anti-intellectual. At worse, it is hateful. racial collectivist negativity - racism. At best, this is lazy and anti-intellectual. At worse, it is hateful. Please give me some examples of this so we can analyze.

    FYI, our Mission is here (top "Mission" button): http://www.ronpaulforums.com/content.php?1957 Our Community Guidelines are here: http://www.ronpaulforums.com/content.php?1989-Values-Guidelines-and-Policies The answer to your question would be, "it depends" - it depends upon the tactics used. Per the guidelines, we do not promote violence or promote negativity in collectivist mindsets that view humans as members of groups rather than individuals, such as with racism. In short, the ends do not justify the means -- but of course the agenda of saving liberty and freedom is 100% in line with our Mission.

    Hi Gage,
    I saved some of the pictures you took at the last Ron Paul event because they were some of the best face shots I'd seen. Would you mind if I used them in order to create custom tote bag iron-ons in Photoshop? I would post a thread up here and link back to your picture thread, giving you 100% credit for the source images. I'll understand if no, but I'd be so grateful if yes :P Thanks!
