    What about Austin Peterson? I'd say of the LP three front runners he seems to me to be the most Constitutional.

    I'm against the death penalty. However, in this case I'd make an exception. And I'd be happy to do the deed myself. In a public forum. Though I'd probably be charged with a hate crime.

    As stated before, my choice in November will be the LP nominee. I must have struck a nerve, look at all the misdirection going on. My point was, some are 100% with us, some are 100% against us, and some things are mixed bags. A is not B, and calling a mixed bag a 100% anything is pursuing a binary mindset, whereas pointing this out is not pursuing a binary mindset. You do realize the cartoon in the video was decrying the usual non-choice foisted on us by the kingmakers of puppet A versus puppet B, not the current election situation, where a rogue billionaire defeated all the A puppets, and is now going up against puppet B? Despite being a mixed bag, Trump found a way to engage a winning coalition and confront the elite, that we have not. Likewise, the NR article was a mixed bag, and Johnson is a mixed bag, as his social liberalism is not libertarian, and increasing state spending in NM over his term is not the same thing as reducing spending, as per fiscal restraint. I talked to Johnson at the recent LPNY convention about this issue, and he agreed he needed more help in navigating pragmatism and principle. He is overall libertarian in theme, and he is working on finding the winning coalition by pulling equally from what are normally Democratic and Republican universes. That is why he is in the double digits. Instead of obsessing in binary Manichaeism, we should be working from such successful examples and building a liberty strategy that works. This idea of a coalition is based on Republicans robotically voting for whomever the nominee is, which we see is problematic in the case of Trump, as it turned out to be for Romney and McCain. As with those previous election cycles, earlier polls do not dictate the fall results. Why do you expect either Paul, who in the primaries made no strong effort to engage social conservatives, or the outsider trend, or defeat the MSM/leadership obstacles, or to challenge the WOT premises of the war party, to automatically get those fall voters any more than McCain and Romney did?

    Jesus is not on that list either. He has called us to be faithful. not "way cool." But the comparison I made was not between Trump and Christ, but between Trump bashers and Pharissees. What is way cool about being legalistic? What that tells me is, if a mod gave you several warnings and infractions, while I got the +rep, that establishes the fact as to who is the troll. Ron's coalition with the paleos unified and optimized the liberty base vote (say 5-10% of the population), but made no inroads towards expanding its support beyond the base, where the 51% electoral victories are. Rand's dilution of "Ron Paul brand" (hmm? I thought we were about the liberty brand, not one political figure) centered on his defensive rhetorical tactics and attempt to accomodate the establishment, not on the broader coalition building needed to win over more voting blocs. Rand did none of the latter.

    You're sounding like somebody from the Sanhedrin, who would tell Jesus to "go through procedures" in order to be properly in their good graces. Whereas the truth is the outsider trend of 2016 is a Defensive / Strategic Purpose phenomena that already has benefited the liberty mission of the movement. That truth does not depend on a forum classification, regardless of the flawed procedure you are referencing to push a misleading binary view of the situation. I'm not participating in a flawed, or rigged game. There needs to be brand progress. Analyzing a candidate's STRATEGIC value to the movement, not just his current positions, needs to be included in the brand going forward, in light of the three national defeats just experienced, where our candidate made no strategic progress towards either building a winning coalition, or in defeating establishment barriers to liberty. Saying "what the man represents is not what the forum and liberty needs to be associated with" is the reason for the fighting, because it ignores we need to add a strategic component to the brand. A few people here want to keep us stuck at 2007 (ignoring the three defeats, and never building coalitions), while others do not, so the dispute over our future path is constructive and relevant.

    Rather, the correct term for your position is "smear artist." I have gained hundreds of rep points in the last few months based on my comments on Trump, including many from Bryan. That is not the mark of trolling, so your judgment is flawed. Or else I should disregard the very incomplete analysis that was done, and the irrelevant classification system that was created to deal with a non-existent problem, based on what I have already outlined, like other members have done.

    Just did a search (out of curiosity) for "arrested for performing a wedding",, The only one that came close was a woman in Alabama,, and he charge was not for performing a wedding,, but for trespassing.. She refused to leave the office. and performed a wedding. She was charged with trespassing. (despite the spin) Could not find a list of arrested pastors.

    Haven't read the whole article but one exception I take is pundits referring to tax breaks as subsidies. I'm for tax breaks. I think everyone should be. N.C. has lost a lot of business opportunities to Georgia because the state gov. ended the tax break it was giving the industry.

    Marriage was possible. In the sense that I could "marry a cat under a full moon" kinda marriage. I know two gays. They have been "married" in your sense of the word for quite some time. However, without the legal benefits/protections of a state wedding many basic accommodations were denied them (not to mention Fed.gov benefits). For instance one has Fibromyalgia. Due to complications he was hospitalized. The doctors would not allow the other to interfere in medical decisions even though the other has been taking care of him for over a decade, knew the medications, etc. "Family" only. Something as simple as that is what gays are speaking of when they ask for marriage equality. Your wife, assuming you are married, would have been taken into complete confidence in the decision making process without a question asked.

    Sounds good. Since the entire post is lost in translation I will furnish my quotes from the other thread. So, no. He is not in favor of letting the borders be overrun by anyone and everyone. Work visas with criminal background checks for those coming across and those within. By doing so he believes ICE would be able to concentrate on the criminal elements. I do not see where he advocates putting them on the dole, pay to educate their children (He wants to end the Dept. of Education), pay their healthcare ( He is against the Affordable Care Act).

    He has said otherwise, by indicating in past threads it is reasonable to class Trump in the "Defensive / Strategic Purpose - candidates" category. The main point is there are more than two categories, and people can reasonably disagree as to which one a candidate falls under. E.g., the analysis quoted only demurred from a decision about the future impact of a candidate vis a vis the mission, whereas the view that Trump falls under the defensive category can be based on what he has already done to strategically further the mission. And demurring about concluding what Trump's future impact may be, is not the same thing as concluding he is in the "non-supporting" category.
