    All this hamster wheel talk is a cute analogy but does it mean anything? The bulk of Americans will believe the system is fried when they finally decide to turn to a genuine anti-Establishment candidate and their will is denied. So, the way to that end is to work toward a consensus that we need to elect someone completely not approved by the media. Once we elect that candidate but the powers that be tell us to our faces that we did not, it's on. Until then, you are just a voice in the wilderness, one raging against the machine. A one-man revolution begging for a rubber room and a diet of thorazine. If you can't help bring on that proof that this is no longer a republic, the least you could do is have the courtesy to stay out of the way.

    Who is "we"? You should listen to this guy: Quite a guy. Ever meet him?

    Now that the thread was combined with another thread on the topic, so we don't have to repeat ourselves and get deja vu all over again, are we sure there's still a problem? Do you consider the OP's 'oh my little thread is now just the tail end of a big thread' whine to be something actually worth addressing?

    I think that's more intervention than God is willing to provide, Gunny. But if that were to happen at the LP convention, suddenly the LP would have a candidate with a reputation for integrity, relevant experience, and name recognition too.

    Not even close, kid. It just looks that way because the Trump people spam here day and night--almost as if they're earning a living at it, so they don't have to stop and go to work because they're already there. Which is what I was saying in the other thread about giving alternative viewpoints a chance to be heard over the Official Noise.

    Ron Paul needs to carry out Trump's threat. Last I checked, what's sauce for the goose is still sauce for the gander. Ron? If you accepted the Libertarian Party nomination, they'd actually have a candidate!

    If that were true, you'd explain how. But since all I'm really doing is taking the spin out of your words, causing them to topple over like a top when its centrifugal force is spent...

    Read my comments again. The reason a site which is dedicated to giving alternative points of view a place where they can be heard might censor some input is simple. If it does not, the powers that be need only hire a hundred full time spammers and those alternative viewpoints will be drowned out within the day--and forevermore. If forum slide is a term you are unfamiliar with, you might consider getting familiar with it so that you can continue to participate in this conversation in an intelligent manner. These things are a genuine concern. And this is a major affront to your Constitutional rights because...?

    Yes. And if that mission is to present viewpoints in opposition to the Official Viewpoint, which needs no help as it is repeated ad naseum with a billion watts of broadcast power 24/7, then censorship can be part and parcel to that mission. Now why shouldn't we maintain a place where the narrative which gets no airtime elsewhere can stand out? Do you have a good reason?

    This has been discussed and debunked in numerous threads. Which is the only possible reason you could have for starting a whole new thread about it, instead of discussing it there. Flagged. Well that explains why you're still here. Now, care to explain how this is relevant to this new thread spamming old information?

    You understood as late as just last year how an unsolicited endorsement from a polarizing figure could be used to discredit the endorsee... What happened in the last year to cause you to forget that simple concept? Senility? Or is this just part of your attempt to reinvent the world into one where Trump is not a polarizing figure?

    Now, see? This is why it's harmful to let people start new threads every time Trump opens his mouth. This question has been asked and answered in other threads. What better way to discredit Ron Paul and all of us than to have the biggest, most ridiculous Establishment Clown in recent memory speak out on our behalf?

    Look, just because you want to spam the mainstream media narrative here is no indication that this place exists as the billionth place to spam the Official Narrative. Salon sez, LOL. Now there's an unimpeachable source! No thinking person is going to believe the Deep South will carry the nation. It didn't in 2012, and it had help from states which have shown no love at all for Trump. So, are you going to tell us how Salon is an unimpeachable source, or are you just going to switch to a thread where these lies have not already been disproven and repeat the lies there, in hopes that real people won't have time to stalk you around the forum repeating these debunking facts? Red State Republicans largely hate and despise Donald Trump. And why shouldn't they? He's a New York brat who is embarrassing them and their friends and obviously throwing this election to his old friend Clinton, and anyone with half a brain can see that. No wonder he has yet to win a single Red State outside of the Deep South except Arizona (the only state stupid enough to reelect McCain). 2012 Presidential election results.

    What does 'wasting time on someone who has quit' have to do with that conversation? PCWV, so far as I can tell, is merely stating that if you aren't crazy enough to stage a one-man revolution, then the only manly thing to do is to plunge ever deeper into denial and try to accomplish nothing, for fear that anything you do will be seen as begging your masters for scraps. Why does that even need to be answered? Who takes it seriously enough to favor it with a serious response?

    That's one of the most ridiculous either/or false dichotomies I've ever seen on this site, and I've seen a lot. So, there's no one in the race but Trump and Cruz? No Libertarian Party? No life outside the GOP? And this advances the site purpose how, exactly...? Plenty of reason to believe that will change? In what universe?

    Bryan should have paid more attention to all of those Sola_Fide discussions. Bryan is trying to do something even God knew was impossible. Bryan is trying to create a set of rules which is devoid of loopholes, which encapsulate, preserve, protect and defend the spirit of the law through the letter of the law. It's a fool's game that even Jesus did not attempt. Jesus told parables, and let those with eyes to see and ears to hear get the message. Jesus openly flouted the letter of the law in order to elevate the spirit of the law above it. Now you have what amounts to a distraction going on during the election season, like the Marquis de Quensbury Rules being rewritten during the heavyweight title bout. How is the activism to work around that? I remember when this forum had purpose. It's purpose was not to give each individual free speech no matter how disruptive it was. It's purpose was to give ideas counter to the mainstream agenda an outlet where this particular bit of free speech could be heard above the fifty billion watts if paid speech blaring out of every media outlet.

    Nicely put. Don't take this site too seriously, please. It has given itself over to Trumpmania to a distressing degree of late. And thank you for your erudition. You are not alone. You are just ahead of the curve in looking around and saying, surely there's a way out of this goofy trap. They have played this game of bouncing us between the lesser of two evils for a long, long time, but never in my lifetime have the two evils been as evil as this. Yes, for all those who have brains enough to see, and who aren't so buried in denial that they cannot allow themselves to see, this is the cycle that can drive people out of the two party "system". Oh, and don't count on the Libertarian Party nominating Johnson. That nomination is very much up in the air. But no one in the race for that slot is in any way anywhere near as evil as either Clinton or her game-throwing ringer Trump. And thanks again for chiming in. It's good to hear a voice from outside the echo chamber today.

    That is the point in a nutshell. The lesser of those two evils is undetectable. Any alternative at all is a straw worth grasping at.

    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?
