    There is a certain amount of that, isn't there? It is a temptation to look at who is being stirred up against whom, and say, good. Step back out of the way and root for the total body count. But when the dust settles, will the Head Psychos In Charge, do you think, say, 'OK, all clear, we burned out the underbrush and now martial law is over, the Constitution is back in effect, we'll stop all the wars and deliberately destroying the economy, and reinstate sound money and start giving you people you can vote for, instead of just people you have to vote against?

    People and sites are being shut down left and right. Actually, I take that back: just right. :D But seriously. This problem is getting over-the-top, unbelievably bad. Now these are nominally private companies doing the de-platforming. So we're supposed to be all for it, yadda yadda yadda. But practical reality has to matter, too. If it doesn't, if your principles have no connection with and no bearing on practical reality, what good are they? Seriously, tell me that. What good are they? This is the practical reality of the situation: to communicate ideas effectively in the modern age requires the internet. It requires, specifically, a Facebook and Twitter presence. If these companies lock you out, you're dead in the water. It also requires that people be able to find you. If Google delists you from their search results: that's it. You're dead in the water. Super dead. "But, but!" you say. But you can still have a website! Anyone can have a website and say anything they choose. Google's a private company and doesn't have to show your site. Facebook's a private company and doesn't have to let you on their network. That's fine if they lock you out: just have your own website. Phew! Problem solved! The internet is still free! Sounds great, but this is not true in this day and age. You cannot have your own website. You most certainly cannot have a website and say anything you choose. In today's day and age, the threats and infrastructure of the internet have evolved such to require the assistance and cooperation of mega-corporations.

    That's it. And it's not too hard to see the powers that be are convinced they can steer toward totalitarianism. Praising--or just giving cover to--groups doing things which could trigger martial law, which seems to be about the only thing antifa ever does, certainly gives us a clue as to what their intentions are. They certainly are pulling out all the stops. If they fail, they're not going to have many bridges unburned behind them. They're shredding the last vestiges of their MSM's credibility. They're shredding the last scraps of their education system's credibility. They are, in short, going for broke.

    I think I'll shut up and let him clarify himself. All I know is, the left is more than hypocritical enough to be offended by whatever statement they can contrive to misconstrue, yet be as offensive as they know how. Why he says the right can't do the same when the alt-right is as foul-mouthed a bunch of hysterical, melting snowflakes as the nation has ever seen, I'm sure I can't explain.

    He didn't say more incendiary. He said more incendiary to the establishment. They might find Trump's goofy Celebrity Apprentice persona useful, but they don't really consider him one of them and they certainly wouldn't miss him if something happened to him. They'd just be tickled pink at the way we go after each other in the aftermath, and the chance to slap down martial law.

    Afghanistan is a different story, but not very different. The mountainous terrain is so difficult for a military to deal with, that numerous attempts to conquer it by large, technically advanced nations have failed, and often bankrupted the country that tried. The most recent was the Soviet Union. But if you want to export natural gas from the Caucuses, you need a pipeline across Afghanistan. It's also the most perfect climate in all the world for growing poppies, and the CIA does love to supply the world with opioids. Nation building? Spreading democracy? Just telling people what we're really fighting for will eventually go a long way toward ending this madness. Expect people to be unhappy you told them the truth. Expect them to appear to reject what you say. But it's like planting a seed. At first you think you didn't do any good at all. But later you often find that the truth did take root after all.

    Have you looked into the Federal Reserve? You get taught that it's a harmless entity that tries to control the supply of our money to prevent recessions and make the ones it can't prevent less destructive, but always seems to fail at that, as the worst recessions the nation has ever seen have all happened since it took over. In reality it's a collection of the world's richest banks who were given the ability to make money the old fashioned way--they get to print it. They have 'managed' the money supply in such a way that the dollar is worth a nickel--a person with a nickel in 1913 could buy just as much as a person with a dollar today, and a person with a dollar back then could buy as much as a person with twenty bucks today. The middle class is gone because the dollar buys less every day, but your boss won't give you a raise every day. The dollar is also required to buy oil. Country X is not allowed to buy oil from Country Y with their own currency, or Country Y's currency, or gold, or any thing else. They have to buy dollars first, then use the dollars to buy the oil. This is what the term petrodollar means. It allows the Federal Reserve to print more dollars without the value of the dollar not just going down, but plummeting, because it creates additional demand for the dollar. Countries buy oil with the petrodollar for a simple reaon. Iraq sold oil for gold in the late nineties, and suddenly we were being told they had yellowcake uranium. Selling oil for something other than dollars is fatal. Not exactly what eighteen year olds are told by all those recruiters, eh? But it's a fact. The Fed is tied to the age-old Rothschild family. Official central banks are their family business, and have been for centuries. In the year of 2000 the seven countries without a Rothschild owned or controlled Central Bank were Afghanistan, Iraq, Sudan, Libya, Cuba, North Korea and Iran. The only countries left in 2011 without a Central Bank owned or controlled by the Rothschild Family are Cuba, North Korea and Iran. Do those names sound familiar? Have you heard Lindsay Graham calling for you to join the army and go kick their asses on Sunday mornings?

    Actually, we used to have a few laws that we're not doing all that well without. Like a law limiting how many media outlets one entity could own. No law ever gets repealed--except the ones that actually protect the common people.

    Clearly learning from the past, and maintaining a historic record so our posterity can do the same, is a losing proposition too. Not to mention honoring people who rose above the barbaric mores of their primitive times, and made decisions when there was no good choice to make. I'm surprised the human race has lasted as long as it has.

    So the ACLU is bad because it's fair, and as blind as true justice to everything but the facts. The Left is eating its own. Is the Right smart enough to affiliate with the Left's quality castoffs? If we let Left and Right make us hesitate to embrace anything which values truth and substance over style and fads, we lose, and the Deep State and their useful idiots win. Or rather, the Deep State wins, and their useful idiots don't go to the gulag until after we do. I've seen libertarians turn their noses up at people and groups of real quality before, because they're associated with The Left. Bill Moyer is one, and the ACLU itself is another. Well, folks, the $#!+ is getting real, and we had better get over that foolishness real damned fast.

    Well, keeping a journal of the types of pressure an elected representative gets from the local constituents wouldn't be as interesting and instructive as the pressures K Street and their colleagues bring to bear. But it could still be enough material for an educational and entertaining book.

    If that's what you wanted to say, why didn't you? What does that have to do with you trying to make a point by saying something entirely different? Is TheCount a DNC troll as you and NCL claim? Wouldn't be surprised. His posts often fit the pattern, and he certainly did pick a screen name which was a slight variation of the name of a popular poster who had recently dropped out at that time. Just the way AuH20 did. Just as though they hoped they would be mistaken for the other, and fit in, and no one would question them. But I've also seen NCL admit to being a close associate of someone who openly came here as an ambassador for Stormfront or some such racist group, in complete and obvious defiance of the stated site mission of promoting Ron Paul. And I've seen you, over the years, do everything I would do to this place if I were a COINTEL pro. And here I see the three of you working in perfect concert to devolve this whole forum into a meaningless, supercilious Left v. Right screaming match, even though real libertarians are neither left nor right.
