    Just thought I'd bump this thread, so someone can say she thinks he flunks nearly as badly as her candidate for the seventeenth time. Because God for bid she not get the last word.

    You keep saying that and keep saying that and keep saying that. But when asked how, you only say, Step One: Circus Step Two: ? Step Three: Liberty How many times are you going to spam us with Circus ? Liberty Circus ? Liberty Circus ? Liberty before you figure out we heard that?

    Well, you can keep believing the psychos as they pretend to listen to you once every four years, and abuse you the other three. But you can't convince me to do the same. lol

    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.

    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?

    It's the sort of plan that wouldn't appeal to someone too stupid to see the value of forcing a brokered convention. Who was it? You tell us. Is this why you were asking if some hypothetical person is stupid? Was that a 'When did you stop beating your wife' question?

    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.

    acptulsa replied to a thread Trumpweiser? in U.S. Political News
    So when he says he'll 'make America great' he's saying he'll make Budweiser taste good? An admirable goal, but it certainly doesn't require us to make him president for him to do it.

    Possible deal breakers: Thinks businesses that serve the public should do so without prejudice and once told Fox that, provided the Congress called for an intervention against a genuine, ongoing genocide, he just might grant Congress' wish. Which, of course, just makes any antiwar coalition with him at the center a stronger deal.

    When you say 'we', you are talking about Republicans every single time. Would you be terribly upset if I showed you evidence that Republicans don't necessarily know what the whole of the American electorate wants and will vote for...?

    The man is awfully vital. Moreso than many a middle aged person I know. If the LP drafts him, it will be an honor. If he really needs the rest, I think we can all have faith that he will say so and decline, and be grateful for that honor.

    I find he lacks anything resembling specificity. Which is understandable, because generally when he does get a tiny bit specific, he contradicts himself. And, no, I don't consider 'we have half as many Navy ships as we used to and I will increase that number without spending more money by cutting better deals with the shipbuilders' to be specific.

    I suppose that's why, for example, Little Light Shining is no longer here? At the end of the day, some here will look for alliances with the antiwar 'Left' and some will look for alliances with the closed borders 'Right'. But working to entice the antiwar left to vote Libertarian, despite the fact that they're usually more interested in growing the federal government, is not the same thing as capitulating on all things liberty (or, if you prefer, all other things liberty) in order to ally with a bunch of totalitarians who just happen to want to deport people.

  1. @csu1987: You GOTTA be kidding. Those of us who LOGICALLY urge a third-party run are ROUTINELY bounced down to Hot Topics...by another word, CENSORED.

    "Rand is nearly as good as Ron" is a matter of OPINION. Not only do I disagree, RA! RA! RAND! puts me directly in mind of Rand Paul's COATTAIL riding, Ron Paul's NEPOTISM and Party Faithful GOOSE-STEPPING.
