    Your apparently gratuitous use of "fascism" doesn't help you here in the least. Given that strong nationalism is a key element of fascism, your assertion regarding Clinton passes no muster. Given the key element of racism, I would say that at best you have not made your case with respect to Trump. As for point 3, do you mean to imply that "rais the LP profile a smidge" would be the defining characteristic and result of a Johnson presidency? Seems you are setting your sights pretty damned low. I cannot speak to point the fourth because I have no idea who that is.

    Without understanding the radiating effects, nope. Unlike many people, I am not THAT KIND of sucker. I am, unfortunately, a great big sucker for little girls. I have no power over them. Your question presupposes the tacit "rightness" of the top five bullets. They certainly SEEM desirable, but unlike Faust I am leery of selling my soul to the devil.

    And THAT is where men need to live their lives, minute by minute. The moment it is no longer important enough to be a basic and conscious decision element of every quantum of one's praxis, he has lost respect for his fellows in some manner and degree. This is not to say that one wrings his hands over every nit of his daily minutiae, for obviously our lives would become untenably bogged down with the overhead of what would clearly be a severe neurosis. But the general habit of consideration for others should be second nature. The more significant the decision at hand in terms of potential effects upon others, the greater should be the deliberation on the issue. If I casually take a stick of my friend's chewing gum as I often do ( I despise chewing gum, just for the record), I need not sit for years contemplating the possible effects my choice may have upon my friend and, perhaps, world peace. But if I'm going to pull the trigger on my rifle, I damned better be certain that he is not downrange of my fire and that he is ready for the concussion of the muzzle blast, and so forth. And this should be a concern NOT because of the potential legal consequences, were I to accidentally send him to Jesus. This would seem as the most basic common sense, and yet the political devolution of humanity during the twentieth century, directly proportional to the rise of the modern nation-state, has rendered a vast plurality of humans either oblivious to it, or simply decayed to the point that they could care less. Without those fundamentals as one's second nature, I confidently assert that the rest becomes tenuous at best and more likely meaningless because without that sound and unwavering foundation, the basics of human relations becomes essentially negotiable from one moment to the next. This is one area where the Framers of the Constitution erred wildly, what with incorporating instruments by which the most basic fabric of the society could be altered if "the people" so chose at some time in the future. I can call such a flaw nothing better than pure buggery. It is an error so profoundly idiotic as to leave me doubting that they could have made it accidentally. Along with language skills, the basics of proper human relations should occupy center-stage in one's education such that by the time he graduates high school he is the functional equivalent of a PhD on the topic. Without such knowledge, the race of men is doomed and I offer the world as we find it this very hour as my proof positive of the central importance of such developed skill, as well as the proper attitude for approaching its daily application. Furthermore, it is one thing for the dregs to show a profound absence of such knowledge. It is something very different when the highest elected officials of the nation think and behave with equally ham-fisted and blindly ignorant boorishness.

    Then perhaps he should hold his yap on matters that result in auto-assassination. And how is it he picked an apparent gun-grabbing idiot as a running mate? I don't care if he's Jesus tap-dancing across the seven seas. His rhetoric is lousy and it is the only thing on which most of us have to base our assessments. In favor of a basic wage for all, regardless whether they work? How, exactly, does that speak to liberty when men with guns are ordering you to open your wallet and start shelling? He is no libertarian. He is either pandering or he is one of those milquetoasts who want freedom sans the costs of being free. Defend him all you like. Until someone demonstrates to me that he is either honest or not an imbecile, I will continue to hold him as a discount commodity. Oh, boo-hiss. This brand of cheap innuendo is pure FAIL. Attempting to link those who are not so easily fooled by the inept or the snake-oilers with the generation of millennial pansies gets nothing better than a hard face-plant.

    That may be true, but I can only go on what I have heard and read. Besides, it is irrelevant whether it is one right or all of them because the moment you concede the one, you have in principle conceded them all. If Johnson were the perfect candidate in my eyes save for his expressed intention of removing the 2A from the Constitution, he would likely not have my vote. In truth, yes. But in Theire minds, not necessarily. People come to believe all manner of idiocies. At some point, truth becomes less important than what people believe to be true. Here I speak in purely pragmatic terms.

    You say this as if it were a bad thing. Perhaps not by your standards. By mine, however, he most certainly is. I don't give a hoot about his intentions no matter how holy they may be. All that I have to go on are the things he says, particularly in the absence of any further knowledge. He says patently and dangerously objectionable things, any one of which indicates to me his lack of fitness for the post. Given the litany of his toxic spew, I shall happily bequeath him to you in my will. By his own words he would steal some of my rights. ∴ he is a thief.

    Perhaps, but is that to say there is no path forward? I do not believe that to be the case, but suspect that nothing will change so long as general circumstances remain vaguely normal. I suspect that the only likely breaker will be when Theye finally overstep their authority in response, perhaps, to some event such as rioting and where they try something that really backs us into a corner that cannot be denied, such as confiscating firearms nationally, or firing upon the wrong population. Once the membrane remains, I suspect the people will remain quiescent, which may actually prove the better path. Let Themme breach the peace.

    Fair enough. I am only trying to remind people that these methods of communication can be VERY tricky. Misunderstanding is more the rule than the exception. I would also point out that people need first to become aware of the perceptual errors into which they have fallen. Otherwise, all your talk is for naught because they think you are some kind of loon blathering on about shit that makes no sense to them. Until you can assassinate conceptual terms such as "government" and "the state" such that people come to a clear and accepted understanding of what it is that those things ARE, trying to get them to adopt your way of thinking is going to hit-or-miss at the very best, with a lot more miss than hit, so far as I can see.

    Oh I disagree. Firstly, their intentions are irrelevant. Secondly, I see plenty of malice from that quarter. They are very fast to wish death and destruction upon all who fail to toe their line of nonsense. They have no personal grace whatsoever, and are dangerously stupid. As for personal gain, you bet your itching asshole they are running for their own interests. That brand of ego knows nothing BUT self-absorption and aggrandizement. I believe the new term for their self-centered bullshit is "virtue signaling" or some such. These are the most singularly and repulsively dishonest people I have ever encountered in my entire life. They are not only as bad as neocons, they are worse. Get those people into positions of real political power and then sit back and watch the fun. Between the third-wave feminists who'd be cat-fighting each other for dibs on your balls which they would hang from their rear-view mirrors, to BLM schmucks who'd have you slaved out in penance, to the white-guilt crowd, safe-spacers, and so on down the revolting litany of brain-damaged idiots of that general ilk, you'd be pining away for the good old days of the lovely neocons who at least left you mostly alone so long as you paid your taxes without too much complaint. Yes, the neos suck hemorrhoids, but they are as godly and saintly men when compared with the mindless, glaze-eyed viciousness of the SJW. The two cannot even be compared as they are in two completely disjoint classes. The SJWs in power would put Stalin and Mao to shame, for they are the logically absurd conclusion to which the left world-view had no choice but to lead.

    For future reference, I would suggest you start off with ALL the relevant information because your OP smelled like a troll had come and taken a gigantic shit in my lap. Top. As for what you should do - impossible to say without detailed history, and even then... My daughters' mother was an alcoholic and a lover of pills. I learned about this shit the hard way. Some people are open to getting straight. The vast and overwhelming majority (about 98%) are not. I took Loida to rehab several times, all for naught. The woman was brilliant - she spoke at least ten languages with native fluency including Ukrainian, Russian, Polish, Latin, Spanish, French, Arabic, Dutch, Finnish, English, and some Farsi. She had talent you wish you had. And you know what she did with it? NOTHING. She fucked up her children - thank God the girls turned out OK. Prescott died in a car crash in 07 when he got into a car with a drunk, who proceeded to kill himself and four others in Williams AZ, with one passenger surviving. That was five years after she managed to finally kill herself at age 45, further punctuating the lives of her children with feces.

    Not so fast. Holding a business owner responsible for KNOWN risks is not even remotely valid. If a bar owner allows smoking in his establishment, you enter that space at your own risk. If you feel second-hand smoke might give you cancer, then do not go in. This is pretty simple stuff, unless the individual in question is afflicted with entitleitis, wherein he psychotically comes to believe that he is entitled to enter upon that premise under circumstances of his fiat. It is a degenerative disease that turns a man's mind and soul into a foul smelling goo. The circumstance where your claim is possibly valid would be one where the patrons are knowingly kept ignorant of some danger to themselves. The two general scenarios are fundamentally different
