    ISIS is a creation of the US, Saudi Arabia and Israel. No one is going to do anything but fund it. and use it. and if Trump somehow gets the job,, He will be informed of what he will do. whatever he says means dodo.

    Trump has spoken of taking similar measures in relation to using profiling, meaning most people would not be subject to this engagement. Since his campaign has focused on vetting Muslims for possible terrorist ties, or Mexicans over possible illegal status, I used those two examples.

    So you bought the MSM's 'deplorable' narrative that most of the tens of millions of populist opponents of government and the PC regime are kooks or bigots. Agreeing to such mass demonization is not the way to reach any sizeable bloc of voters, and it keeps people mentally shackled to the same frameworks that have made it impossible to overcome the institutional obstacles to liberty. Rand's approach was perceived as too accommodating to the statist status quo for him to be accepted as an effective alternative. For this same reason. nor did Rand have an effective solution to the blackout tactics, which as you pointed out were being practiced on him BEFORE, and APART from Trump. If Trump had never entered the race, Jeb would have dominated the primary coverage as per the establishment's actual plan, and the elite would have still blocked Rand out. So the crucial issue remains, the Pauls did not have an effective counter to the kingmakers' tactics, or a viable outreach plan to get votes outside the liberty wing of the GOP, whereas Trump did. Reaching out, and effectively reaching out are different things. Reaching out in the entirely PC, let's-play-nice way with the MSM that Rand tried, turned out to be ineffective. Boldly confronting or denigrating the media, mega donors, and party leadership, while appealing to a populist or nationalist dynamic among voters, turned out to be the more successful route.

    Hillary, at best, will take almost everybody's guns. Trump, at worst, will just stop and frisk, or take guns from some Muslims and Latinos. Clear choice.

    Perpetual Educational Campaign Libertarians: Building coalitions is a two way street. If Rand wanted to build a coalition with Republican voting blocs then he should have made the effort. He did not, and that's why he was not nominated, not because those factions were not reachable. Trump did reach out to them, and that's why he's winning. Johnson has built a niche 5-10% election coalition from LP voters, some millenials and disaffected Sanders supporters, but that does not equal an election winning political bloc.

Theye disagree just because...power. I don't want a fight, or another fight, I just want to be left alone. But, it seems this is not an option going forward.

    You described the opposite of what I want, in order to promote a straw man that is the opposite of what I said. I don't want lip service, and my faction is the Founding Fathers, whose intent was to have a government that actually recognizes the rights we innately have, and could be actually countered if it did not. Is it too much to expect to enjoy the rights we already have, AND expect the explicit acknowledgement of them in a country's Constitution to be upheld, or redress to be available if it does not? It's a both-and, not either-or. If the SC comes up with an unconstitutional ruling on guns or other rights, what I "want" is for the decision to be overturned, AND for Congress to remove the Court's jurisdiction if it's not, AND for the states to secede if the Courts or Congress won't restore recognition, AND for the People to stand up for their gun rights in any event. That's NOT "abiding," despite your mis-description. Blowing off institutional safeguards that affirm your liberties is not a good thing, as we need as many checks against state overreach as possible. Resisting seeing the checks eroded is part and parcel of a "I don't abide" mindset. Just saying, as a practical matter, without such formal remedies, allowing the Court to get stacked such that it vacates the 2nd amendment will lead to massive restriction of gun ownership and access. The personal remedy of "from my cold dead hands" may NOT be enough to retain it, as it has shown to be not enough in most countries. The state will NOT let you go about your day, no matter what dude you are.

    Both of us need a good Kentucky whiskey, straight. I am honestly at the point of "head explode." Even folks that I could previously agree with want to excoriate me for saying almost the same thing, but with a liberty over all bent. It's just gotten insane. And more and more I'm just about retreating to my and mine. I'm just so tired I'm pulling back. There is too much bad energy in it. I'm tired of being pissed off. Fuck 'em. I'm six years without filing Federal or state. I'm not a tax evader. I readily admit that I am an conscientious objector. And if that is against the law....I don't care.

    Right there with you. I don't know why. It's like arguing on these forums about Trump. "If you're not for Trump you are for Hillary!", "You're not black so you can't understand!." As different as either of those statements are there is so much similarity that makes me want to say....."Ahhh, fuck it."

Don't ask me man. Being from close to Charlotte, NC and knowing others I've been excoriated on FedBook as a "white", with "privileges," so I can't give an opinion. Some how my views are "racist" at worst or "uninformed" at best. SMDH. You try to expose the bigger picture and those that find solace in the smaller can't open their minds. It is what it is. I'm about at the point of not caring and not trying to lend a different perspective to what is obvious to me a Stockholm syndrome.

    No government recognizes basic human rights. No country remains "free" for very long. My "preening" might be different from others. I do it daily and will not stop. What you "want" is for your political faction to give you lip service to the gun rights that you have, but abide on a ruling telling what is this and what is that. I'm not the dude. I don't abide. I go about my day.

    Translation: Cap is straw-manning again. I'm voting LP/Johnson, while knowing he does not have any realistic shot of winning. The topic is neither Hillary or Trump, but the ISSUE that a gun control interpretation of the 2nd amendment is about to be christened by the Supreme Court, depending on who the next Justice is. That is not fear-mongering, that is just the news. Despising Trump does not change the facts. The fact is, the difference on this issue IS consequential, even if you despise both major candidates. It's not "justifying" voting for a certain candidate to simply point out what's about to happen, if that candidate does not win. Just don't complain afterwards---got that through your heads?

    To repeat, no government can take our rights away. But most governments do not honor or recognize basic human rights, and free countries that stop doing so no longer function as free countries. You can preen "let them come and try to take them" all you want. Tell that to the Australians, 30% of whose gun owners lost their guns when draconian laws, sold as "common sense gun control" led to them being taken from them in the '90's. Tell that to most people in most countries, whose governments never protected their right to gun ownership to begin with. Yes, they will always have gun rights, but yes, the state came and took their guns anyway. I want our country to remain free, as demonstrated by the nation defending the gun rights of its people, not the nothing burger of "knowing I have gun rights," while having no access to guns, in an unfree state. I want a something burger, not liberty that is all hat and preening, but no cattle.
