    I already had a yard sign stolen today. I was just thinking that I wanted to get an early start on that to boost name recognition, but if people are going to steal my signs then I might have to wait until 30-60 days before the election to put out yard signs.

    Ive found that a lot of the social conservatives that Ive talked to in my area are very open minded when I advocate a non interventionist foreign policy. I dont believe theyre neocons or warmongers. Its actually been my experience that the non religious conservatives tend to be more pro war.

    At this point we have to make some theological distinctions. The two wills of God, his predestinarian will vs his prescriptive will. If you mean prescriptive will, than I agree with you. God prescribes his people to choose godly judges (Deut 17, Exodus 18, Romans 13:3-5, etc.) and sometimes the people disobey. On the other hand, God's sovereign hand is in control of all that happens. I was dealing with the former, the prescriptive will, so you're right, God doesn't "support" all rulers. But I was talking about government as an ideal or an institution, not the way it always acts :D

    While I think alienating a large portion of your fan base is probably a bad idea, Trump's tweet was the epitomy of man-child.

    No, this is a mistake. Jesus says all power and authority were given to him in Matthew 28. The disciples were to go out and *disciple nations*. Ultimately they would not remain under Satan anymore

    Israel had a unique relationship with God in which God told them what to do directly. But even then, they had civil magistrates, they just didn't take the form of a human monarch. Jesus Christ continues to rule over the nations, but he now rules through his revelation that is God's Word, rather than by audibly telling Christians what to do and what not to do. None of the other nations are condemned for having kings in the OT either, though they are condemned for other reasons.

    I'm sympathetic to Monarchy. I think its a valid form of government, and I'm open to the idea that it might be the best one prudentially in some (perhaps many/most) circumstances. But ideologically I'm a theocrat.

    Yeah, there are 32 states that exempt food groceries from being taxed, and an additional five or six states that have no sales tax at all. Repealing the sales tax on food in Kansas is a very realistic proposal.

    My name is Brett Fairchild. Today I filed to run for state representative. I'll be running in a rural district in Kansas. I'm running on a platform of opposing tax increases, repealing the state sales tax on food groceries, ending civil asset forfeiture and no knock warrants, legalizing industrial hemp and medical marijuana, opposing all restrictions on gun ownership, supporting a free market healthcare system, reforming our state's licensing laws, reducing the size of the state workforce and reducing welfare/entitlement spending. I'm running in a Republican primary against a Republican I would describe as being a liberal Republican. I've known him my entire life and even consider him to be a friend, but I just have strong disagreements with him politically. He's part of a group of so called "moderate Republicans" in the Kansas house. In reality, they vote with the Democrats about 80-90% of the time. These so called "moderate Republicans" make up about half of the Republicans in the house of representatives. This legislative session they voted for the largest tax increase in state history, voted for massive spending increases, voted to keep Common Core, voted against defunding Planned Parenthood, voted to expand gun free zones, voted to expand Medicaid, voted to restore teacher tenure, etc. My opponent raised a large amount of money in his last campaign, and he defeated his previous opponent by a large amount. Therefore, I'm going to need to come up with ways to raise money to run a competitive campaign. I'd appreciate any support you guys could give me. Even if you can only afford to donate a small amount, a lot of people donating a small amount of money can go a long way. I know this isn't the right forum for this, but I'm just posting his here so that more people can see it initially. If the mods could just leave this post in this sub forum for a day or two before moving it, I'd appreciate it. This is my campaign website for anyone who wants to look at it.

    I would have to do more research on #1 to know what that means. At first glance #2 seems like the proposal that would be the most likely to be advanced in a state legislature.

    What could a state legislator propose that would stop this sort of thing from happening? I'm going to be running for the state legislature in Kansas starting tomorrow. I'd appreciate any suggestions on what reforms the legislature should make to stop these types of events from happening.

    You'd probably hate the rest of my political ideology, but to a large extent I agree with this. I do believe government is part of how God created the world, and have gone a long way away from the anarcho-capitalism I used to hold. But I really think 300 million people being under the dominion of one person or group is way, way too many in almost any case.

    Whatever 1 Timothy 2 might or might not mean, it certainly means the most immediate implication that Paul saw fit to draw, namely that women shouldn't be teaching men in an ecclesiastical context. That would rule out female pastors, "priests" etc. I see that AF is jaded because of Romans 13. Romans 13 is a tricky passage, and unlike the whole issue of women pastors, Romans 13 has some debate during church history, especially during the Reformation. Personally, I believe Romans 13 is prescriptive, not descriptive, ie. "this is how government, properly defined, is" rather than the total statist version that some people see because I don't think that's consistent with Romans 13:3-5. But even then, I do think the passage teaches that there ought to be a State and that it ought to legislate based off the (objective, Biblical) definitions of good and evil. And I know full well that ain't a popular stance here.

    Regarding the whole "only the radical libertarians" will enter the gate, a similar thing was brought up at Eric Peters Autos:

    "David" is my username. Moleman is coming close to arguing the position that only libertarians are Christians.

    Just an FYI:

    1. My answer to my own poll question is probably "yes", though its an exceedingly reluctant "yes."

    2. The more reluctant someone is, the less quick I'm going to be to judge them. You, frankly, are not the type of person I was considering when I made my OP, even if you techncially qualify. You're against legal torture and you agree that its almost always wrong. There are a lot of people who support legal torture and who think at least some of what was in the Senate Report was morally permissible (At least at my school there are, admittedly, my school is pretty "conservative"). I much more had in mind the neoconservative who says "torture is always justified against terrorists if there's a chance to save even one life" than I am a generally peaceful person that reluctantly says they could justify torturing someone if it meant saving their family, or something like that.

    OK, so in that situation you're almost dealing with Hiroshima and Nagisaki again (not as it actually occured, but what most people think of it as.) Fair enough...

    Still distressing.... I'm not sure what that says of those people who actually think these were all ticking time bomb situations.

    Do you think it would ever be moral to let someone die of hypothermia in a cold cell? Do you ever think it would ever be moral to break someone's legs and force them to stand for hours or days? Do you ever think it would be moral to consecutively waterboard someone 183 times?

    Is your only issue with this the potential for abuse, or do you understand that there is something deeply immoral about this?

    There's something sickening and inhumane about about what was described in the CIA report. Killing someone in self-defense when they are trying to shoot you isn't comparable to that.

    Sorta, but there are plenty of people here who think it should be legal. So, where's the line where the form of torture becomes inhumane no matter what?

    TC, I apologize for the neg rep. I was in a really bad mood today, both from seeing the CIA report and seeing people here at school defend it. I took it out on you. I deserved the neg rep you threw back. Sorry...
