    Half the constitution and the whole of the BoR is about leveling the playing field between the politicians and the people. Don't be dense. What candidate campaigns say is simply not civilian speech. Are you, too, just trying to distract from the fact that gridlock produces more fiscal responsibility than Republicans do? I've had more than my fill of this threadjack. If you really want to know more, ask in the appropriate thread (where all these questions were already answered two or three times each).

    Oh? So politicians can't arm their bodyguards in gun control jurisdictions? Did you ever compare the speed of the presidential motorcade to that speed limit sign at the side if the road? You seem to be speaking hypothetically. I am not. We need no law or court decision ensuring the right of corporations and limiting the right of citizens to amplify the speech of politicians through money. And we certainly don't need the precedent of the Bill of Rights being used for the purpose, since the original intent if the Bill of Rights us to ensure civilian citizens' rights by limiting the politicians.

    Oh, I see. Someone wants to make a list which would quantitatively demonstrate both major parties are equally full of shit, and you're capable of agreeing to disagree and shutting up. See a chance to mischaracterize and libel someone and you're hijacking threads for weeks on end. I still don't know what to say about someone who is so passionate about defending a bunch of Bush RINOs ruling that the First Amendment gives candidate campaigns--politicians--more rights than civilian citizens.

    OK, so quoting LA Time is even less credible that NY Times, much less The Enquirer, so you lose point on that bit. There are valid reasons for defending a border. Those who cannot or do not acknowledge this are either bereft of sufficient intellect or have unpublished agenda items. Rumor has it there are 100K Chinese troops camped in the mountains of MX. I have no idea whether this is true, but if we assume so for entertainment purposes, were tens of thousands of Chinese to begin pouring across the MX border, would you assert that we should simply allow them to pass, unchallenged? Serious question to which I would like an actual answer and not some deflection. Give it a whirl.

    Who says that they'd never become citizens? So your big issue that I've seen across various threads is that we can't have open borders because ultimately they could vote. O boy we'd never control congress + the executive. And Rs accomplish so much in those times, so our chance to accomplish all we accomplish when we have that control would be jeopardized. So man, I feel like you get deep in these weird situationals and are not as bound to libertarian platforms because you feel you've got to get some sort of leg up partisan-wise....instead of looking at it as an idea or concept & filtering things through an ideology.

    Which brings me back to the OP - the headline highlights how young latinos want "healthcare for all, immigration reform, and social justice issues." Well Hell, what's wrong with wanting immigration reform? doesn't everyone want that? I know we all have different versions of what we think works, but who in the hell thinks this works? Have you ever been through it???? Its effed a million times over. So yes, duh, libertarians like borders, but they like them open. And who says that just because they're open, that you can't have it secure? And who says that if folks travel/work in someplace, that somehow that demands immediate citizenship & enfranchisement & entitlements in that place?

    lolwut? I'm talking about THE concept of Liberty & how, in a libertarian worldview, the concept isn't just for people who live in the US, but that all people have a right to be free. Does that make sense? I'm not saying its the US's job to make sure of that. I'm just saying it's ironic how we (as US citizens) can cry like babies (and rightly so) when our freedoms are infringed, but then want to put all these huge governmental barriers in place that infringe upon another man's liberties like travel, trade, and labor. That's Nationalism. But again, in regards to the OP, its an issue with the welfare state. I get it. I'm with you. But I just can't see how all of this all of the time in every thread turns into an immigration issue, and so many are not taking a libertarian stance on that.

    Actually, what is the political struggle that we witness? It is the instinctive struggle of all people toward liberty. And what is this liberty, whose very name makes the heart beat faster and shakes the world? Is it not the union of all liberties — liberty of conscience, of education, of association, of the press, of travel, of labor, of trade? In short, is not liberty the freedom of every person to make full use of his faculties, so long as he does not harm other persons while doing so? - Frederic Bastiat The Law The irony of gadsden flag waving folks fighting against drug legalization and such is the same irony in which yall exclude the concept of liberty to those outside the U.S.

    Muting candidate campaigns--including incumbents--leads to more government? That's funny, Zippy. By hijacking this one instead of bumping that one? Your beloved Bush RINOs did. Why are you ignoring that civilian campaign contributions are limited, while those of businesses (even 100% foreign owned) are not?

    And if people didn't immigrate to the US, all of our social assistance programs would A-OK then, right? We're talking less than 20% of the population, only about 40% will vote, and about 33% of that vote usually goes republican (the party that hasn't given us any huge government programs much less expanded them). So this is really just an issue against welfare - YES!!!! We're all on the same page So why is this getting blamed on immigration - isn't that what most of us view as a LIBERTY, not to mention economically beneficial?..........and hasn't net immigration been at zero and trending negative for a few years now? So are we really blaming our social programs being drained on that????? Didn't republicans just have the executive + congress for 2 years? Congrats to them for CONTINUING to make immigration the scapegoat, while CONTINUING to do nothing about this welfare state that we're all supposedly so worked up over....

    And politicians should have more right to speak than civilians? And corporations should have more right to amplify the speech of politicians than civilians do? Because all lies about what I said aside, that was the issue I was addressing (as you'd see if you went to the thread and read it, instead of requiring I clarify in this hijacked thread). So that's what you're arguing in favor of, as if it was a "freedom position".

    And still the quote you provided proves I was talking about only limiting the contributions of money (which you call "speech" like a good little swamp RINO) to the campaigns of politicians. Which proves you knew you were hijacking this thread with baldfaced lies.

    That's a baldfaced lie. I called for an end to campaign television ads. As in, ads by campaigns. And you can't come up with the quote that indicated otherwise because what you said is pure, unadulterated mendacity. What's the matter? Can't win the argument, so you feel the need to hijack the thread with lies?

    Well, since you're talking about a right your beloved Bush justices granted to politicians, there are quite a few. Like politicians' right to violate the Tenth Amendment. And politicians' right to order agencies to violate the Fourth (which will likely be expanded with your boy Kavanaugh on the court). And politicians' right to curtail our rights under the Second (just your boy Trump keeping his promises). And... Why do you ask? Does this have something to do with the thread topic? Anything at all? Or are you just desperate to distract people from the fact that gridlock works a damned sight better than unimpeded Republicans do?

    I will likely fail, yes. But I will be trying for a libertarian when I do. As you well know. And the main reason why is trolls like you telling people they have to vote for the less evil swamp creature because the third party candidate who would actually represent them can't be elected. Do you have any idea how foolish and tiresome this shit you do is? Keep it up; you'll soon lose what unpaid allies you still have.

    . Which is exactly what the OP is about. Yet Swordshyll would still rather have Republicans failing to curb RINO spending than have them actively curbing Democrat spending... After all, RINOs are better than Democrats because you can blame them for stuff Republicans do. Like locking Ron Paul delegates out of conventions.

    You know Democrats have at least paid lip service to cutting defense spending, and you know there's about as much of that to cut as everything else combined. Now. What spending have Republicans cut this millennium?

    YOU are insane. The fed has NO BUSINESS running states' lands. The real answer is to get .gov outta the properties & let the states actually taking care of their own lands. The Bundys were in actual prison for taking care of the land around them. Now the answer is to blame the states when the Fed controls all the open land?

    There is a fundamental difference between defense of the realm and police state, just as there is one between killing in self defense and murder. The acts are superficially indistinguishable, one from the other. But context is king. I shoot the ghost from a man entering my home, uninvited, at 2 AM and I am golden. I shoot the ghost from a man, take his wallet, car keys, and drive off with his Aston Martin, chances are I'm a murderer. I believe a "proportional response" was called for, not "more police state". You do this sort of strawman-ish thing a lot, leaving me wondering what is the deal. The "problem" is plenty bad, but I don't think it is nearly what you seem to think it is.

My personal story (pt2)

by CaptUSA on 02-24-2016 at 09:57 AM
Among my many interests was electricity and I decided that I wanted to change how the industry operates. Understanding the free market as I did, I was pissed that the coolest discovery in the history of mankind was being regulated to death by the government. I wanted to change that.

I found a job as a part-time temporary meter reader. My girlfriend went ballistic that I was quitting a salaried job for a part-time temp job, but I had complete confidence in what I was doing. Meter

My personal story (pt 1)

by CaptUSA on 02-24-2016 at 09:55 AM
Iíve never used this blog feature before, but since people have wondered (and asked) about my personal story, I figured it was best to do it in here rather than the forums.

It may come across as anecdotal, but I assure you that this same type free market story is working itself out all over the country and the globe. Even in the face or increasing government interference.

I was born in Western PA the third of four boys. When I was still a baby, the second child died
