    He could not. He had promised not to. But as I say, he hasn't made that pledge lately. And honestly, the situation is much more favorable today than it was four years ago. For example, neither major party was running a full-on clown four years ago. Nor was either running an outright criminal. Now both are. That makes a difference.

    The very fact that he talks in terms of making America great again tells me he will do nothing of the sort. Calvin Coolidge presided over one of the greatest periods of growth and prosperity in America's history. He did not create that, and did not claim that he did. He got government out of the way of the people and let the people do it. Coolidge got it. Trump does not. And so long as Trump does not, he cannot duplicate Coolidge's success.

    I agree, except in this regard: Not all economic policy is foreign policy, and not all foreign policy is economic policy. You seemed to me to be blurring the line above, which is why I asked what I did. Garage sales may not be a major feature of economic policy, but are not unaffected by it.

    Yes, yes he does. But he leans toward the clown in some ways. And the field is very heavy with clowns this year. For once, being a clown is not the way to stand out. He also lacks relevant experience, and that will weigh heavy with many voters. Johnson is better in that respect, but worse in others. The nation needs a decent Libertarian Party choice this year, and the Libertarian Party needs someone like Ron Paul. I feel they must risk Ron Paul refusing, even if it does seem like a no confidence vote to the candidates they have. There is too much which could be gained if Ron Paul bowed to the pressure and allowed his hat to be thrown in the ring for him. And he might. After all, he did not promise not to run for a third party. He hasn't done that for four years now.

    I suppose this is how you view garage sales too? Are they also chipping away at sovereignty at home unless the sales are registered with the central bureau and proper sales tax paid on the transaction...? Just how much can we accomplish on our own initiative and without blessings from on high before we begin trampling on the sovereignty of our nation? Must we fill out forms and send them to Washington to borrow a handkerchief when our nose is runny?

    Yes. Or, at least, I'm sure he sincerely believes so. But if drafted, will he not run? I think the theory should be tested.

    Hate to say it, but the LP ought to draft Ron Paul. He has name recognition, relevant experience, and proven integrity. With all of that, the Libertarian Party could do well. As in unprecedented, extraordinarily, magnum opus well. 2016 is just shaping up to be that kind of year. All that is needed is for the party to get the attention it deserves. And Ron Paul could accomplish that like no other.

    You missed the point. The point is, if you help people discover that the right to build your life is stolen and we have already given our lives up to the machine, despite the tons of propaganda designed to obscure that, then you can do something about it sooner, and you have more help when you do. More importantly, you have had a chance before that moment to teach people what they are fighting for. Which is important, because if you don't you wind up watching everyone fighting to get something even worse.

    All this hamster wheel talk is a cute analogy but does it mean anything? The bulk of Americans will believe the system is fried when they finally decide to turn to a genuine anti-Establishment candidate and their will is denied. So, the way to that end is to work toward a consensus that we need to elect someone completely not approved by the media. Once we elect that candidate but the powers that be tell us to our faces that we did not, it's on. Until then, you are just a voice in the wilderness, one raging against the machine. A one-man revolution begging for a rubber room and a diet of thorazine. If you can't help bring on that proof that this is no longer a republic, the least you could do is have the courtesy to stay out of the way.

    Now that the thread was combined with another thread on the topic, so we don't have to repeat ourselves and get deja vu all over again, are we sure there's still a problem? Do you consider the OP's 'oh my little thread is now just the tail end of a big thread' whine to be something actually worth addressing?

    I think that's more intervention than God is willing to provide, Gunny. But if that were to happen at the LP convention, suddenly the LP would have a candidate with a reputation for integrity, relevant experience, and name recognition too.

    Not even close, kid. It just looks that way because the Trump people spam here day and night--almost as if they're earning a living at it, so they don't have to stop and go to work because they're already there. Which is what I was saying in the other thread about giving alternative viewpoints a chance to be heard over the Official Noise.

    Ron Paul needs to carry out Trump's threat. Last I checked, what's sauce for the goose is still sauce for the gander. Ron? If you accepted the Libertarian Party nomination, they'd actually have a candidate!

    Read my comments again. The reason a site which is dedicated to giving alternative points of view a place where they can be heard might censor some input is simple. If it does not, the powers that be need only hire a hundred full time spammers and those alternative viewpoints will be drowned out within the day--and forevermore. If forum slide is a term you are unfamiliar with, you might consider getting familiar with it so that you can continue to participate in this conversation in an intelligent manner. These things are a genuine concern. And this is a major affront to your Constitutional rights because...?

    Yes. And if that mission is to present viewpoints in opposition to the Official Viewpoint, which needs no help as it is repeated ad naseum with a billion watts of broadcast power 24/7, then censorship can be part and parcel to that mission. Now why shouldn't we maintain a place where the narrative which gets no airtime elsewhere can stand out? Do you have a good reason?

    This has been discussed and debunked in numerous threads. Which is the only possible reason you could have for starting a whole new thread about it, instead of discussing it there. Flagged. Well that explains why you're still here. Now, care to explain how this is relevant to this new thread spamming old information?

    You understood as late as just last year how an unsolicited endorsement from a polarizing figure could be used to discredit the endorsee... What happened in the last year to cause you to forget that simple concept? Senility? Or is this just part of your attempt to reinvent the world into one where Trump is not a polarizing figure?

    Now, see? This is why it's harmful to let people start new threads every time Trump opens his mouth. This question has been asked and answered in other threads. What better way to discredit Ron Paul and all of us than to have the biggest, most ridiculous Establishment Clown in recent memory speak out on our behalf?

    Look, just because you want to spam the mainstream media narrative here is no indication that this place exists as the billionth place to spam the Official Narrative. Salon sez, LOL. Now there's an unimpeachable source! No thinking person is going to believe the Deep South will carry the nation. It didn't in 2012, and it had help from states which have shown no love at all for Trump. So, are you going to tell us how Salon is an unimpeachable source, or are you just going to switch to a thread where these lies have not already been disproven and repeat the lies there, in hopes that real people won't have time to stalk you around the forum repeating these debunking facts? Red State Republicans largely hate and despise Donald Trump. And why shouldn't they? He's a New York brat who is embarrassing them and their friends and obviously throwing this election to his old friend Clinton, and anyone with half a brain can see that. No wonder he has yet to win a single Red State outside of the Deep South except Arizona (the only state stupid enough to reelect McCain). 2012 Presidential election results.

    What does 'wasting time on someone who has quit' have to do with that conversation? PCWV, so far as I can tell, is merely stating that if you aren't crazy enough to stage a one-man revolution, then the only manly thing to do is to plunge ever deeper into denial and try to accomplish nothing, for fear that anything you do will be seen as begging your masters for scraps. Why does that even need to be answered? Who takes it seriously enough to favor it with a serious response?

    That's one of the most ridiculous either/or false dichotomies I've ever seen on this site, and I've seen a lot. So, there's no one in the race but Trump and Cruz? No Libertarian Party? No life outside the GOP? And this advances the site purpose how, exactly...? Plenty of reason to believe that will change? In what universe?

    Hang in there Darlin'. We live and we learn.
  3. I read that the sugar is some a diabetic can utilize but also under it it says at this time it is not recommended that diabetics should use it.
    I take Chia all the time sounds wonderful on all the seeds. Maybe later with more study they will find out it is alright on the sugar.

    Really? I had heard that the opposite was true. People have been trying to get the local natives to eat it because they have huge diabetes problems. The pods do have a high sugar content, but I thought it was a form that was not as bad for diabetics. Perhaps I am mistaken.

    Well, I will have other things you can eat - palo verde seeds, processed jojoba meal, devil's claw seeds, buffalo gourd seeds, amaranth, panic grass, chia, and so on.
