    I want Trump supporters to explain this latest pick to Trump's administration to me and how it will work towards shrinking the role of the federal government in the economy, please.

    It means that nothing is going to change with foreign policy, monetary/fiscal policy, nor domestic policy. All of you who supported Trump are going to be disappointed.

    It has a lot to do with it because you must be able to justify why consent is right, on a metaphysical level, given the assumption that there is no God. If you can't justify objectively why consent ought to be the precondition for proper sexual behavior, then you are asserting an idea without a just basis for it. In other words, you are being arbitrary. You're essentially arguing that two people must consent to a sexual act because you think consent is good. But then someone else can be equally arbitrary and say that consent is irrelevant when it comes to fulfilling their sexual lusts (as pedophiles, rapists, and others do). That's the consequence of your idea on sexual behavior, especially in a world without the sovereignty of a personal God.

    You're glad I'm anti-Trump because you are anti-liberty. You want more intervention from the federal government into our personal lives, into the marketplace, and into the affairs of foreign nations. That's exactly what Trump stands for, and that is just as evil as "pedophiles running our government."

    Now you've made the problem more difficult because consent necessarily implies free will. In a universe of just random processes subject to non-sentient matter on a subatomic level, there can be no such thing as "free will" because matter just operates based on forces enacted against it. Just as rocks fall to the ground by gravitational processes, the human brain just does whatever it does based on random electrochemical processes. Therefore, there can be no true consent whereby a person is free to choose one behavior from another behavior simply because he is subject to whatever processes his brain forces him to act. But if we take the idea of consent up to another level, and with the assumption that the universe is not under the influence of a personal God, then we must ask why consent, itself, ought to be the determining factor for correct any behavior. Children do not consent to their parent's discipline before they are spanked, for instance, yet we all realize that the consent of the child is irrelevant for such matters. Criminals don't consent to being taken away to prison before they are arrested, either, but we recognize that their consent is moot in matters of justice. So, philosophically speaking, you have to show objectively why consent is true, so that it can be asserted as a proper ethical standard in sexual behavior, no matter if a person accepts consent or not. And you have to apply it as that standard for these biological bags of meat and bones with electricity flowing through them known as "human beings." Otherwise, you are just being arbitrary. And if you want to be arbitrary, then someone else can come along and impose his sexual standards by rejecting consent as the precondition for acceptable sexual behavior (as do the "pedophiles running our government" towards little boys and girls).

    If you don't believe in the triune God of Scripture, then you can't have an absolute nor consistent reason to condemn pedophilia. By Evolutionary reasoning and precepts (and there are many naturalists and ethicists who would agree that), pedophilia is just another sexual behavior like homosexuality, bisexuality, polygamy, polyandry, necrophilia, phytophilia, and bestiality derived from a person's "natural" desires by the means of natural selection. If you're going to argue that homosexuality is okay but then turn around and condemn pedophilia, then you are a hypocrite. So, my point is determining whether or not pedophilia is a natural consequence of evolutionary descent is the prerequisite before anyone condemns "pedophiles running our government," if one denies that God has any authority in our sexual habits and desires.

    The key difference between Dr. Paul's use of executive orders and Donald Trump's use of executive orders is that Dr. Paul would never use them to legislate policy, whereas Trump would use executive orders to legislate, especially to circumvent Congress on the issue of immigration policy. So, my point about "Trump passing his own executive orders in order to get rid of executive orders" is that Trump is just going to use them for his own purposes, even if they are used for different reasons than Obama's. And you can rest assured that Trump's use of them will be to legislate his own policy, just as he always uses government authority to get what he wants.

    Gunny, don't forget that Trump is "playing 3D Chess." He needs to appoint neocons into his cabinet so that he "drains the swamp" of neocons. Not only that, Trump is also going to make America great again by helping us to spend and borrow our way out of debt (since he is a "master of debt management," after all). And you can be sure that Trump will pass his own executive orders in order to get rid of executive orders.

    Trump won't do any good because the foundation of his character is corrupt, and from that, he has a dangerous ideology about the nature of government, economics, rights, etc. One example of that is Trump's history dealing with his eminent domain abuses and wanting to take oil from other nations (Google it for yourself). And I don't need to mention how may times he has flip-flopped on issues, even denying things which he clearly said before in contradiction to himself.

    Exactly, my brother. The simple fact that Donald Trump would even consider John Bolton for Secretary of State is reason enough to question Trump's alleged noninterventionism.

    In this interview, Dr. Paul talks about how America lost its ideas on liberty and his views on the upcoming Trump Presidency. By the way, Apologia Studios is a Christian ministry that focuses on engaging the culture by tackling difficult issues and answering them from a Christian perspective. They have done debates with atheists, and they continue to challenge the ideas of secular humanism as irrational and unsustainable in a civilized society.

    No, it isn't. It's sinful people who want to play God that got us into this mess, that is, people who believe that they can rule over others for their own benefit and glory. And Donald Trump is one of those people. He doesn't care about anyone but himself. "Make America Great Again"? Yeah, only if it suits his own interests, at the expense of your rights. Trump is fundamentally no different than Hillary Clinton, just another elitist who believes that he's smarter than the 99% rest of the country.

    The Trumphumpers don't care about facts. Remember, they were voting against Clinton, not for principle and a return to the rule of law in the defense of God-given rights. I'm going to enjoy seeing them squirm once Trump shows his true colors because then it will be clear that Trump-a-loompas voted for the very thing that they claimed to hate.
