    Exactly. Unlike Johnson, McMullin takes no votes from Hillary. Yet he and Bill Kristol know that they can't possibly gain enough ballot access to make a meaningful shot at the presidency. He's not even polling nationwide, so he can't get in the debates. McMullin's biggest impact is the amount of attention and votes he takes from Johnson. Johnson's strongest state was Utah, but McMullin destroys his chances there. McMullin won't get on even a majority of states' ballots, but his impact on Johnson will be enough to assure the LP doesn't get 5%. Bill Kristol is one mean, sneaky son-of-a-Trotskyite. This kills two birds with one stone - getting neocon Hillary into the White House and preventing the emergence of an Anti-War major third party.

    It would have been a beautiful dream for Rand to take the presidency. But I am SO GRATEFUL that he will be a significant force in the senate during the Clinton presidency. He's been a Grade A gadfly to Obama. He's already got a long head start on ferociously discrediting Clinton on emails, Benghazi, gun running to terrorists, etc. He'll be in a prime bully pulpit and he'll be relentless once she's in office.

    You mean now, 13 years after he left office? I understand 4 or 5 years out, when some of the results of his governing were still playing out. Do you expect me to just take your word for it that he was so awful? There are many takes on this out there: Here's Tea Party pinup Karl Denninger: https://market-ticker.org/akcs-www?post=210816 Here's the GOP establishment takedown of Gary Johnson, which pretty much agrees with your assessment:

    There is no politically viable statement other than "I the 1964 Civil Rights Act." Full stop. Consider the following topics: -The CRA -Israel -Restrictions on meth/crack/heroin -Cops -Regulation of automatic weapons. -Social Security -Abraham Lincoln

    All social programs should also be local. Plenty of ways to handle that and get the Fed gov out of our lives. The original purpose for federal gov was to protect in case of invasion and to handle trade with other countries- my, how we have deviated.

    This is a win for Hillary. What the progressive establishment does to manipulate the populace is absolutely scientific. This has been timed to the nanosecond and delivered with precision. Divide the people surgically. Control the narrative. At the end of the equation, democrats have the big tent. The DNC is running a high-tech campaign and trump is just a piece in the game, always has been. The liberty movement has, by design, been tightly conjoined to trump and his campaign in the popular consciousness. Associating trump to Alex Jones, the most prominent media voice for "liberty" is strategically sound. Liberty = coarseness. Liberty = science averse/lowbrow. Liberty = deportation. Liberty = religious suppression. Liberty = bomb the shit out of 'em (pro-aggression). Liberty = absurd, laughable. Liberty = teen-age lingo. Liberty = red-faced screaming. Liberty = self-absorption. Liberty = insensitive to the disadvantaged. Meanwhile, perception of progressives = inclusion, compassion, thoughtfulness, enlightenment, diversity, intelligence, self control, service, graciousness, sensitivity, decency, non-aggression. Nothing in that second list is contradictory to libertarianism or inherent to progressives. Today's breed of "liberty lovers," which is very different in nature than it was just 4 years ago, is triggered (heh) when you say words like "sensitivity," "compassion," "diversity." It HUURRRTS ussss! It BURRNNzzz. They have seemingly been convinced by Hillary and Barack that being sensitive, compassionate, and respectful of diversity makes one a progressive. I ask people here - wouldn't liberty be more viable and attractive if it reflected that second list instead of the first? Until it does, oppressive elites will continue to win. Libertarians will continue to be perceived as intolerable assholes.

    When somebody pukes up alt-right buzzwords/catchphrases (cuck, cultural Marxist, trigger, signaling, useful idiot, SJW), this involuntarily starts going through my head: "We're talking Lord God King Bufu. I'm like... Oh-muh-GAAAAWD" EDIT: The duckling thing was devastating. Give a guy a warning.

    Pretty much my position- especially when those who post negative articles on Trump are lambasted and called all kinds of ridiculous names. My POV is to learn all sides of a candidate and coming to a political forum is a fast way to do. Unfortunately Trump posts are always sidetracked by the insults and innuendos.

    He has his own take on religious liberty. But for you to lecture about it? You've called for a ban on Burkinis, burqas, niqabs, minarets, and Qurans. As for "fictional White House," you seem to be correct about that unfortunately.

    Go and listen to/watch some interviews (in their entirety, not soundbites) and read his official positions. If those rub you wrong, then there, you've made up your own mind. Threads started by the RPF #NeverJohnson collective are about the worst way to get an accurate picture of who Gary Johnson is and what he represents.

    Here's Gary Johnson's position: "If any of you heard me say I support a carbon tax...Look, I haven't raised a penny of taxes in my politicial career and neither has Bill . We were looking at—I was looking at—what I heard was a carbon fee which from a free-market standpoint would actually address the issue and cost less. I have determined that, you know what, it's a great theory but I don't think it can work, and I've worked my way through that. "And I support a person's right to choose, so when it comes to vaccinations we should be able to make the decision whether we want to vaccinate our kids or not. I choose to vaccinate my kid and you never say never. Look, in the case of a zombie apocalypse taking over the United States, and there is a vaccine for that, as president of the United States, you might find me mandating that vaccine." - Gary Johnson, Aug. 25, 2016.

    You can take the F out of RPF and it would still be accurate. Not that what Ron Paul thinks seems to matter around here much anymore.

    Supporting a pro-NAP, anti-war candidate isn't analogous to setting oneself on fire with gasoline. Why not consider another semester in metaphor school?
