    If you have a Libertarian candidate who is not wonderful but pretty good, and a Republican candidate who sucks donkey balls, you have to vote for the Republican who sucks donkey balls because you can only vote for a Libertarian who is ideologically pure as the riven snow. Well, I'm glad that works for somebody. But I think it's the most stupid and self-destructive thing I ever heard. Try his ignore list, twomp. You'll like it. It's funny when he quotes someone else and answers you, because he wants to answer you but wants to pretend he has you on ignore.

    What would it take for you to believe those citations? YouTubes of Trump? YouTubes of Trump during this election cycle only? Signed affidavits from Trump? A ride in Trump's 737 wherein he tells you he wants to conquer them and build a transAtlantic pipeline to pump their oil out 24/7? What would it take to get you to hold Trump to anything remotely resembling the standard you crucify Gary Johnson upon?

    You are denigrating Gary Johnson and defending the 'self-funded' myth about Trump because you like to run around playing white knight in defense of underdogs?

    Well, I don't have you on ignore, and anyone with eyes to see can tell who is avoiding honest discussion. But here's a chance for you to appear to be arguing earnestly and toward a just cause: Tell us why giving up on the GOP now would be a horrible idea, and who is still in the race who does not love 'the ring of power' far too much to destroy it.

    There you are. You sell your soul to the devil if you campaign for Johnson but not if you campaign for Trump. Or if good men stand by and do nothing. The only way you can keep the devil out is to pick the most boring policy wonk in the LP and campaign hard for him. Fox can cause the whole of e GOP to shoot themselves in the foot--repeatedly--but it takes a special, personal touch to talk the LP delegates into nominating their Biggest Loser--or talk the grassroots into refusing to help publicize the LP if they don't dig up Ludwig von Mises' coffin and stick the badge on him. You are so doing it by the book.

    In other words, go out of our way to insist on an educational campaign, and don't go for the votes. Don't go for more matching funds, and don't try to score a big enough percentage of disaffected voters to make everyone sit up and say, wait, if I join them we can get rid of one of these corrupt parties. Check. You're doing your job well. Pardon if you consider my translation of your code to be 'bullying'. It simply bears translation.

    Yes, but not all of them. Probably mostly the good ones. In any case it was a purge, and a good one. Try to split off the purists from the initiative. Check. Holler 'Go ahead, throw your vote away' in your best Kodos voice, and try to get people all wrapped up in choosing the lesser evil. Try to convince them voting for the winner is better than voting your principles and hoping everyone else is also so sick of it they join you. Check.

    Before was before. Before the nation was far less sick of the MSM, far less sick of Democratic superdelegates, far less sick of Fox, far less sick of the lowest common denominator of the Republican Party nominating a buffoon, far less sick of this eight year Great Depression, far less sick of this bipartisan screwing. Yes, funding. Yes. But also talk. Anything for name recognition. Anything for name recognition. I mean anything. I'm not even saying anything but a blimp. ANYTHING.

    If you say so. The Republican Party couldn't win any elections, either. Then the Whig Party self-destructed, and suddenly the GOP could win. And those who, like Matt, stuck to the Whigs like glue got left out in the cold...

    Well? If you crank two axles of a duplex so all the wheels turn together, and none of them slip unless all of them slip, is that really a 4-10-4, Sheldon? Or is it still a four cylinder simple engine on a rigid chassis, and therefore a 4-4-6-4 Duplex? Inquiring minds want to know. I know a certain beer company made a joke of the phrase years ago, but I really do love you, man. Well that clears it right up, LOL

    Hillary Clinton really, really wants to go down in history as the first female president of the United States. And she obviously has what it takes to pull that off. She has no charisma, to speak of. She doesn't have the trust of the citizens of the nation. But she does have name recognition. She has superdelegates in her pocket. And she has friends. Friends like Bernie Sanders, who was kind enough to act as a lightning rod for the Left, thereby allowing Clinton to avoid the more frightening Democrats and appear to be reassuringly middle of the road. And friends like Donald Trump, who has been absolutely masterful in playing to just enough Republicans to be a real threat for the nomination, while turning off three quarters of the population by revealing himself to them as a buffoon. And thanks to the fact that they read the polls and realized that no one trusted them any more, Fox was able to put it over by saying mean things about him, and will be able to rebuild its own reputation when it's over by saying, 'We told you so.' Everyone's doing their job. The anti-Establishment fervor that we did so much to stir up caught them somewhat by surprise in its vehemence, but they're making adjustments, and they will pull it off. It's going to take miracle to avoid a Clinton administration. Even if they have to completely destroy the Republican Party to do it. The GOP is not written into the Constitution. It did not even exist when that document was crafted. It rose in the ashes of the Whig Party. That party abandoned its principles in an attempt to straddle the fence over the slavery issue. It took to putting up famous generals as candidates, and doing whatever it could think of to preserve the bit of power its party cronies had accumulated, and lost its way. It became fractured, and it became irrelevant. The Republican Party is merely the group that saw opportunity in the Whig Party's demise, and rose to the occasion. Now the GOP is the Whig Party. It is fractured. It is run by people who have no idea at all how to appease those to whom they are beholden, and also please the voters who call it home--or who believe a conservative has no home in the U.S. It is being battered about by a media which is completely dedicated to bulldozing a path for Clinton, seemingly without a care whether the GOP survives the process or not. It's hard to get interest in a third party in this nation. The thing about the two party system is votes don't get split. If there is one conservative party and two liberal parties, the conservatives win all the elections--and vice versa. So, the wags call the Libertarian Party the 'Losertarians'. But if the Clinton bulldozers destroy the party, I don't see Americans putting up with a one-party politboro. So, something must rise in its place. Will the GOP be rebuilt? If so, will it be rebuilt by the same establishment tools, or by us? Or will it be left in the dustbin of history, and will something less ingrained in the Establishment rise in its place?

    Seems to me that to admit thinking that deporting three percent of the population would free up enough jobs for thirty percent of the population is to admit failing at arithmetic.

    Pulling out of Japan so you'll have more troops to conquer the entire middle east and put all the oil in supertankers is not exactly contrary to the desires of either neocons or the MIC. It's just a call for more profitable imperialism. How does that even remotely resemble anything Ron Paul said, again...?

    Maybe he owns a U-Haul franchise in Mississippi. That would explain his hare-brained scheme nicely. A twenty-first century trail of tears. Now, there's a fine thing for a 'liberty forum' to promote. Such a contribution to this site's alleged mission.

    He definitely seems to have picked his borders--or should I do like he does, and call them 'boarders'?--with an eye toward displacing as many people as possible. Suppose he's in real estate, and this is all a devious plot to scare up commissions?

    I'll grant you this: Every time he comes here, someone gets viciously attacked. He thinks you're a dumb, unsophisticated moron. But don't worry about it, LE. People around here may think you're foolish for fighting the person defending you and defending the person attacking you. But everyone can see that the person who thinks you're a 'dumb, unsophisticated moron' can't spell, and you can.

    And that's why it's so laughable when people insist he's something different. He's more honest about some of the things he's dishonest about. That ain't exactly earth shattering. If he were completely honest he'd admit that he'd be just as universally dishonest as the rest of them if he really wanted to win in November.

    Who's preventing him from talking further? As Melissa wisely pointed out, all he ever seemed to really want was to hit and run. For all either of us knows, he's really what you'd call an SWJ and he just set up a straw man hoping it would cause some of the more contrary members of the forum to pick meaningless fights with whomever they were mad at today.

  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.
