    I can't get into nationalism. There isn't a nation on Earth that shouldn't be split into two or more parts.

    Now, correlating MBTI to race would be interesting. FWIW, Jung concluded in his travels that personality archetypes are universal across cultures. Of course, certain cultures and their more vocal spokesmen aren't immune from making claims about a collective personality of their culture, race, faith (or lack of), etc. One fellow named J. Philippe Rushton tried to find correlations between race and MBTI. He claimed that there are more introverted Asians and more extroverted blacks, with whites somewhere in the middle. Also the company CPP claims there are more ESxP blacks than the average of society. I've seen one claim that ISTJ is more prevalent among African Americans. http://www.discoveryourpersonality.com/istj.html, which throws a minor wrench into the previous two claims. When discussing DNA differences, it might be useful to note that according to geneticists, Europeans and Asians have 1-4 percent Neanderthal DNA, which Africans tend to lack. But anybody who has actually been around different cultures knows that it's ridiculous to describe blacks monolithically. Are they Nigerian-descended, Sudanese, Kenyan? All completely different from one another. Hispanic cultures are similarly diverse.

    I don't see Johnson as the lesser of three evils at all. Sorry, but both trumplary 1 and trumplary 2 cross the evil line for me. Johnson's a good guy. Not the best, but very, very good. Good on Hannan.

    I've gotten the idea in the past that Molyneux didn't believe in engaging the system no matter who the candidate was. Self-destructive irrationality bred from anger and hatred is not going to lead to a peaceful and prosperous future for Isabella. Sorry Stef.

    For clarification, I presume when you say "The religion" are you referring to some particular person or group of people who guide the thought of all believers. Or to its scriptures? Just the Qu'ran? Also the Haditha? Wow. Talk about a flashback. This is the 2003 neo-atheist movement all over again. Stef and trump and Sam Harris and Ayaan Hirsi-Ali and Richard Dawkins and all their AEI buddies getting together to bring the world to rights. Shame Chris Hitchens isn't around to enjoy the renaissance. They all seemed to agree that religions were all bad but Islam should be eliminated first. Hahaha! So here we go again - to save freedom of religion, we're going to have to restrict freedom of religion. In all seriousness, a criminal should be punished - not everybody who belongs to his race, gender, religion, book club or subreddit. For you and Stef, let me introduce the word "collectivism" into the argument. Look it up.

    Seriously. Does anybody find it a little philosophically incongruous that he couldn't give a damn if a small child died, but he's crying crocodile tears about his love for a government-run public transportation vehicle?

    Wow, I guess I didn't realize Stef was a big enough deal for people to be making elaborately edited video refutations. The stuff at 13:30-14:30 is brilliant. And for those who don't watch the video, the part I'm talking about shows Stef shrugging his shoulders and saying "People die all the time" about the Syrian toddler on the beach. And then it shows Stef being moved to tears (in his best weeping Beck mode) because he misses the London double-decker buses he'll never see again because Muslims have overrun London and it's not safe to go there anymore. Really, he's has become nothing more than a slightly balder Glenn Beck.

    Johnson is consistently showing he will take in as many or more democrat voters than republicans. See also this poll, which reported that out of an 11% showing Johnson took 6 points from Clinton and 5 points from trump.

    So he's abandoned anarchy to save anarchy? Gee, I've heard that line of argument before. Who does that remind me of? Stef's megamind has gotten so large that he's finally caught up with Bush. I'll stick with my primitive viewpoint - Embracing neoconservative authoritarianism is not the path to achieving a peaceful, stateless society.

    Wow, thanks for the Ron Paul quote. Everything he said in it made perfect sense. Ron Paul's coalition building with a diverse palette of congresscritters is why there is any kind of End the Fed movement, any national feeling toward non-interventionism and a greatly expanded respect for libertarianism in people across the political spectrum. trump on the other hand only associates with the worst of neocon scum - Ellmers, Christie, Giuliani, Sessions, the Clintons, McConnell, Haass, Rangel, etc. etc. etc. Yeah, I'm butthurt with neocons ramming it up America's ass for 100 years. That's why, like Ron Paul, I won't be supporting trump.

    Having watched the video, and having been a fan of Stefan Molyneux, I found that the video clarified the brutality and repugnance of trump's statements while showing Stef to have abandoned logical reasoning for pragmatic nihilism. Stef uncovers the inhuman statism inherent in trump's statements while apparently thinking he's vindicating trump. Is it possible that Stef is very, very subtly trolling trump supporters? dannno says the video made him feel like trump was being more sensible than he thought. Molyneux convinced me that trump's statements were worse than I had imagined. I used to have a boss who said all the time, "People hear what they wanna hear." Should you watch the video because dannno said to? If you want. But if you hate violence and torture and those who condone them, you'll find it unpleasant and it won't challenge your convictions. See my encapsulation in Post 120 if you want the cliff's notes.

    He used to back up his points with assertions, but now it's all kneejerk prejudices and confirmation bias. For a while, every time he took a provocative stance against a seemingly self-evident libertarian dictum, I used to be interested in what he had to say. But it was always sensationalist and incoherent. His recent attempts to exonerate trump on intent to kill terrorist relatives was particularly ham-fisted. He's simply had a big change of heart over the last several years. I guess it's understandable for anybody who's been swimming against the stream for an extended period. I'll still check him out from time to time. Unfortunately, I have a feeling he won't back down from the trump thing. And it's a shame because endorsing trump is a wholesale abandonment of the NAP, which Molyneux used to be quite eloquent in defending. He used to be pretty brilliant. Although I haven't listened to it in a while, I think my memory is accurate that this was an amazing piece of oratory -

    Johnson is very smart in promoting isidewith.com. People sharing their results on facebook will be good marketing. I wouldn't be surprised if he comes up as first or second choice for a majority of people who take the poll. Particularly if Bernie disappears from the survey.

    You sound like that's not the answer you wanted to hear. I suppose the only way one would have usable evidence is for a polling organization to do two simultaneous polls from the same demographic, one including Johnson/Weld as an option and one not including them. It would be cool to see where they pull from. If the LP had chosen gun-slinging Austin Peterson or John McAfee this time, yes, the LP's vote would take directly away from trump. But I think it's intriguing that Johnson/Weld are comfortable presenting an amenable face to left-swinging voters. A female VP would have been even better.
