    Time to put up or shut up. Show me. If I do it constantly, it should be easy. Otherwise, you mistake opposition to your statism as advocating open borders. Typical statist response - “disagree with me and you must be an anarchist”

    I understand the principles of liberty. So does Ron Paul. So did Bastiat. Not surprising we reach the same conclusions. If you are ignorant of those principles, don’t blame it on a cult of personality. That’s just projection.

    And there you have it. Here. In RPF. We have the Trumpcuckers telling us Ron Paul is wrong. And you wonder if the OP is accurate?! As you can see by this thread, most of the defenders of the principles of liberty have vacated the premises. Congrats. Trump killed the liberty movement. Proof positive.

    This is a workable plan. We would not violate any existing trade agreements except on the governance part. Our tariffs would stay in line or lower. As for the control... We’d have to unwind our entanglements slowly, but we could choose not to enforce. We wouldn’t be in violation.

    So what?! It’s not our job to govern other countries. If they want our business, they’ll lower their tariffs to a point where it’s beneficila to trade. God damn. You guys want to plan the whole world, now! Listen to Ron Paul on this subject.

    No central planning. Lower all tariffs to an evenly low level. Regardless of what other countries do. We can do that unilaterally and it doesn’t take a managed deal. Managed economies are bad mkay.

    Funny - all I hear from him is Bernie Sanders style protectionism talk. (There is no such thing as one-sided free trade, btw. Unless you're talking about governments getting their cut. "Free" trade means both parties are better off by the trade or it doesn't happen. Sad that I have to remind people of this here.)

    Except that's not how it works. This is the real proposal: You, Mr. Consumer, want to buy a product, commodity or service from a country on the authoritarian's naughty list? You have to pay more because we've put more government in the way. No matter which way you cut it, it's more government interference in the trade between two individuals. Some seem to think that this "more government" will eventually lead to less government. I don't think that's ever happened. More likely, it will just be a shift in the favored cronyist industries.

    Same old schtick. Whatever you hope to gain by this, you cannot call it a liberty-oriented approach. I've never seen the "use more government to get less government" approach ever work. Can you give us an example where it has?

    I am also against managed trade. But do you not see that that is exactly what Trump is doing? He just wants it to be managed differently. Ron Paul (and myself) is for lowering all of our tariffs regardless of what other countries may do. No need for any government "trade deals" - even if they're "MAGA deals". And it's working?? I guess that depends on which industry you ask. Governments LOVE picking winners and losers. Tariffs and excise taxes should be very low and evenly applied across industries. We should be against politicians using their power to curry political favor. It's not their power to wield. "Trade globally" means that individuals can trade with anyone that suits their needs without interference from governments. It does NOT mean global trade agreements between governments. And since "Govern locally" means just that, the only government we should be concerned with is our own.

    Ok, hang on a second. I give credit where credit is due. Cutting regulations is a big positive - but then he INCREASED regulations in other areas. New artificial trade barriers imposed by government are regulations AND he supports cronyist subsidization. He cut income taxes. Fantastic! But then he increased spending! As Ron Paul has always said: SPENDING IS THE REAL TAX! Cutting taxes while increasing spending just shifts the burden. You'll see that in the future, even if you want to ignore it now. You thinking he is averting war??!!!! Holy shyte! He's boosting the military more than ever before! He's also dropping bombs at an increased rate. He's engaging with foes which is a huge positive, but let's not be naïve - he's still working the neocon angle of strategically plotting out the chessboard - he's just using a different strategy. Globalism?? The term, "Globalism" is completely misconstrued. The liberty movement used to be FOR global trade and against global government. Trade globally, govern locally. This "MAGA" stuff with trade is the exact opposite. I gave the same credit to Obama. Obama initiated several criminal justice reforms and began investigations of police misconduct. Sure, it was to mixed results, but we're giving credit here where it is due. Obama cut the ridiculous space program and allowed privatization. He commuted the sentence of whistle-blower Private Manning. He was pretty good on individual rights for gays (even though he acted as if government was granting those rights instead of protecting them). His administration was comparatively lax on enforcing federal drug laws and many states were able to turn things around towards liberty during his terms. Even on guns, Obama repealed the law that prevented people from carrying in national parks and another that prevented people from carrying on Amtrak trains. But does that mean he was a positive for liberty??!! Hell no! Far from it! You may prefer the right boot to the left one, but the State is still growing! And it's growing FASTER than ever! Would Hillary have done that? Sure she would have liked to, but with a Republican congress, she would have faced tough opposition. And the liberty movement would be united in that opposition. Instead, we have many of you getting distracted by the "show". Yeah, it's entertaining, but the State is still growing and liberty is shrinking. The power of the Executive branch is expanding while local governance is diminishing. Just like with Obama, let's give credit where it's due, but let's not lose sight of the authoritarian at the helm. Our opposition to the State is fracturing because of some stupid cult of personality. I know you can recognize the hypocrisy here. If the left boot was doing this same stuff, you'd all be with us. Ron Paul is special in that he is only loyal to the principles of liberty - which is why he still shares our opposition to the current administration. The man who gives you pennies from his right hand while stealing dollars from his left is no better than the man who gives you pennies from his left and steals dollars from your right. The areas where you think Trump is benefitting the cause of liberty are miniscule compared to the areas where he's destroying the cause. I'm just being consistent.

    Doing what?! Growing government and getting former liberty folks to cheer him on?! Yay. At least if it was Hillary doing this stuff, people would be up in arms in opposition. Trump grows spending and the response is pathetic.

    Sorry, guys - this article is right. Look around in here. Just because you have been conned into the Trump bandwagon doesn't mean "most" of us have. Most of us have abandoned this place and returned to apathy. That's the fact. Hell, I almost would have preferred a Hillary win at this point. At least then, we'd be united in opposition to the growing State. But alas, many of you are now cheering for it. If you can't see what Trump has done to the Ron Paul R3VOLution, then you are indeed blind. Admittedly, Trump has done some good things, but the damage done to the principles of true liberty will probably never be repaired in my lifetime.

    IMHPOV this all just another ruse to take everyone's eye off the mark. We'll all be yelling about Trump/fake news, leftists/right-ists, progressives/neocons, while the last vestige of freedom is squeezed out of the country with nobody noticing. In fact with so-called liberty lovers applauding. To paraphrase Jefferson: "If a nation expects to be ignorant & free then that nation expects what never was and never will be. For where the press is free and every man can read, all will be safe."

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
I’ve 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
