I have never been a Rockwell fan, and his embrace of Trump certainly hasn't changed that! But he is one of Ron Paul's friends. Do you think that Ron Paul has stopped returning his calls just because Rockwell has taken a different position in this election season? Because I don't.
People are projecting way too much of what they want onto trump and this is easy since he has held every position under the sun.. I am sorry but I highly doubt he will be any of the things people want.. He will say a lot of things people like though, he's great at that.
Agreed, his ticket is the only legitimate one that can go into November.. Peterson and mcafee just have very few credentials to run on.. The Johnson-Weld ticket is two former two term governors
They won't even bother polling the other candidates, in my mind it must be Johnson and I will support him.
They are mostly all just news stories, some mean more to some than others. The media always had articles that are problematic. Members can choose to repond to media issues or not.
I understand there are some collectivist issues, we've had them here since 2007. They should be logically called out as collectivist. We're open ideas for a better site protocol.
No, of couse not. The argument is how a candidate expresses views on violence, how they step up to condone issues and the like. Didn't Rand's campaign issue a denunciation of this act?
This is very different than Trumps statement about paying for legal fees. Making such statements to a large crowd of people you don't know is problematic at best.
Still, I don't see this as some major issue.
I understand, I was giving the OP the benefit of the doubt that his follow up was part of his main point. It should have been more clear however.
Again, there is an argument against that based on the candidates.
Smearing all Trump supporters because of this is illogical, I agree.
The argument being presented is that Trump has in some way encouraged violence and not spoken out against it. That Rand situation was very different. While I agree the OP could have stated a stronger case up front I don't think the argument is anywhere near hypocritical.
While blame for bad behavior falls on those who engage in it, good leadership sets the expectations. Perhaps Trump has some area for improvement here.
Lets keep things civil, no need to make this personal.
Also, I understand that not all site members are going to exhibit posts that are in line with the site Mission 100% of the time but it's a logical fallacy to assign a problem across the entire site, as in "this site has sunk". I see such statements as collectivist.
Back in 2007/08, they were all over Youtube every time the subject of Tibet came up. Their English (or lack of it) gave them away - their grammar was never quite right, but since half the college grads I know seem to end up in CHina teaching English, I'm sure that's no longer a problem
So the Venezuelans spanked their kids and made the economy collapse. Got it - thanks for the heads up!
And as far as the "it's the oil prices, stupid!" argument, others say that's only a part of the problem, and that the beginning of the end predates the fall in oil prices.
This is circa 2009:
Right, but in looking at one of her links, I found out about another one (in the comments section), and while looking into that, I found out about yet another one. So I'll try the last one I found, and if that doesn't work, try the next one. Maybe by the time I try both, the one she posted about will be available, or maybe something else will have worked for me!
My mother had bad results from cataract surgery and ended up going blind. I have pretty much decided against having the surgery myself. I will try the special eye drops and see what happens. Thanks for all the tips and info from all posters.
I would really prefer to avoid getting surgery if at all possible. For one thing, the expense is way beyond my reach, but the main reason is my aversion to hospitals. Too many people are killed in hospitals for no good reason. I'd much rather avoid that risk.
