    Not quite. While it is true (by definition) that "they aren't archetypal purists" because they "don't make extravagant enough demands", my point is that even if they did make such demands, they wouldn't get anywhere with it - at least, not in terms of how "success" is measured within the context of legislative politics (see: Paul, Ron, career of). The reason for this is that we just don't have enough "radical purists". If we did, I think it quite likely that Rand, Amash & Massie would all be markedly more "radical" and "extravagant" than they have heretofore been - and that they would be markedly more successful in getting at least some of their demands at least partially met. The reason that the establishment left supports their radicals is that there are so many of them. They can't afford not to support them.

    Ron Paul was right (again) - Purism is Practical: http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?487693-Purism-is-Practical I very much like all three. I won't hesitate to criticize any of them (as I did when Rand opposed the yet-to-be-implemented Iran Deal), but I also won't hesitate to praise them (as I did for Rand's recent speech at The American Conservative, wherein he opposed scrapping the already-implemented Iran Deal, denounced Saudi Arabia in no uncertain terms, and signaled his support for rapprochement with Iran). However, to answer your question - no, they aren't "good enough" (but this is not necessarily their fault - see below). We so-called "purists" want more than they are able or willing (due to personal temperament or political "realities" or etc.) to provide or accomplish (yet). But as Ron Paul pointed out in the essay I linked to above (and as I elaborated in my response in that thread), this makes us complements to one another, not opponents. (Unfortunately, this is something that many on both sides of the false "purism vs. pragmatism" dichotomy seem not to understand.) If the "moderate pragmatists" are in a position to get something done, then the range of possibilities they have is greatly foreshortened without the presence of a vigorous and assertive "radical purism." In the absence of "radical purists", "moderate pragmatism" becomes the extreme - and as a result, the center of gravity will be weighted much more toward the status quo than it otherwise would be.

    First reply is absolutely +REP worthy! You are very very correct, Money is not printed, I was just using the term rather loosely. The real definition, I should have used "currency" because currency bleeds out its value over time, money does not. Second point, also again you are correct. Real money, when the definition is used correctly, can not be "destroyed". The "money" I meant was "Debt Based Currency" due to its nature. Its borrowed into existence, thus leaving the currency in existence as long as the debt exists. However, when the "loan is paid off", that currency is destroyed. The actual paper is redistributed, but the currency itself no longer exists on the books. I based the "coming to and end" for the US Dollar as the worlds reserve currency on current events. Things like BRICs, and other nations seeking other ways to back their currency. It still is the Reserve Currency, but that is changing, IMHO. Other countries have seen the long term destructive nature of our Fiat Currency as their Reserve Currency and most likely want to switch away from it. All in all, very good points!

    I suspect, attempting to disarm the citizens of the United States, would be very similar to what's going on in Afghanistan.

    People making threats with nuclear weapons, remind me of two guys sitting in a helicopter, both holding a hand grenade and saying, "I'll pull the pin and drop this in your lap." We get to feel like the pilot.

    Agreed. Small problem is the number of people that would immediately claim to be Tax Exempt. And they would do so immediately if their own breathing came at the expense of everyone else. They would claim Tax Exemption, and still fail to recognize its another form of Socialism.

    Ender's Game. Movie. Basically, children are screened for military tactical geniuses, and those skills are focused on thru playing video games. Taxation in this case is in an effort to continue Socialism, the Great Lie where everyone lives at the expense of everyone else, which is what the Taxes are used to fund. I already made my case from a Monetary perspective, but kind of doubt anyone read a word of it.

    Too bad it's fake, tho. Rumors of a Seinfeld reunion had the internet in a frenzy on Friday (November 16) as reports claimed that NBC confirmed a revival of the popular sitcom for 2019. UPDATE 17/11/2018 : This story seems to be false. (read more) Can you believe it's been 29 years since Seinfeld first aired?! (29 years, 4 months, 13 days to be exact.) Why in the world did Seinfeld end? When Seinfeld came to an end after 9 years in May 1998, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Jerry Seinfeld (Jerry Seinfeld). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion. Would a Seinfeld reunion disappoint people? Seinfeld aired from 1989-1998 and is considered one of the most influential TV shows ever on pop culture. Although no original episodes have been shot since, it has remained a regular feature on many station's schedules. But Seinfeld said he's not sure if Seinfeld would work today. “I don't want to see old Jerry Seinfeld,” he told a journalist (Seinfeld turned 64 in April). “Everyone’s going to have different vision of what the character is like, so to have that materialize is going to disappoint most people,” he added. Still hoping for a Seinfeld movie?

    One of the many Plancks of the Communist Manifesto is to convert Rights into Privileges, then deny those Privileges by Default. Only those who are granted Permission bear their License of Permission. A License is in and of itself a flat out Denial of Right by Default.
