    And what a shame it is that the R and D candidates are so godawful that Gary Johnson, of all people, appears as some sort of savior. Between a war criminal, a nationalist socialist and a 'democratic socialist' I'd have to choose Gary Johnson. Hell, even Austin Peterson is a better choice than Sanders, Trump, or Clinton. You keep tossing this word around and I'm not sure you know what it means.

    I read what you wrote. Trump is not a liberty candidate. Gary Johnson is being promoted as one. You support Trump (an admittedly non-liberty candidate). You take issue with Gary Johnson being promoted as a liberty candidate. Why? Being or not being a liberty promoting candidate is no issue for you. Why do you care what Gary Johnson is promoted as, considering your unabashed eagerness in promoting authoritarianism when it so suits you? If he were an open and bombastic authoritarian, would you fancy him more? Jon McNaughton's painting? You're Nixon.

    Source on what? A lot of this is basic facts you should know before discussing this. For example, you said that Lincoln was elected after the South Carolina secession document was issued. The opposite is true. That simple fundamental is central to a discussion on understanding the timing of secession. I am not going to cite facts like that.

    Again, the question remains. If Lincoln had no intent to "interfere with the institution of slavery in the states where it exists," then why did he take action to stop secession?

    The secession documents were more practical documents to gain support from fellow southern states. One of the debates focused on which issues to emphasize. It was decided to focus on support and cohesion from other southern states rather than the world. The total focus on slavery today ignores the fact that Lincoln did not care about slavery where it already existed. Lincoln said, "I have no purpose, directly or indirectly, to interfere with the institution of slavery in the States where it exists. I believe I have no lawful right to do so, and I have no inclination to do so." Lincoln is basically agreeing with South Carolina and its document. He changes tactics when he realizes that he will not get world support on economic issues.

    Do you remember when I posted a picture of Jon McNaughton's painting, 'The Forgotten Man'? You said that I was the guy 'groveling' to Barack Obama? Then Ender mentioned to you that who you were referring to was actually James Madison? You see, you're an idiot. Objectively so. It'd suit you better not to respond in any manner whatever as the best you can do is hysterical misrepresentations and irrational exaggerations. It is not 'authoritarian', you simp, to remove someone from another's property if that is what the property owner so wishes to do.

    There was also considerable debate on how the causes should be cited. One issue was the presentation to other southern states (for support) versus presentation to the world. Judge Wardlaw, for just one example, stated: "My objections to the other Address is that it deals too much with the Fugitive Slave Law and upon Personal Liberty Bills. It is too much like special pleading." The documents and debates vary among the other seceding states. Note that Georgia, for example, actually includes the tariff issue in its final document. Denying that the secessionists and politicians of the day did not debate and argue about the tariff as cause is like saying oil had nothing to do with the Iraqi invasion.

    No, Lincoln was elected November 1860. Related? By that logic I could say the constitutional issues to which the document alludes are related to tariffs.

    Looks like the store missed a promotional opportunity. They could've had their employees strap two shot pistols to their legs, under their skirts. Could have called them Derringer by Victoria, or something like that. The employee then takes out the pistol to shoot the thief. If it's shoplifting only, then some birdshot to the hand would do it. If the thief gets violent (as happened here), then the .45 is warranted. If the employee is not comfortable with accuracy, then they could just pelt the thief with shot in her buffalo ass. The store's next promotion could be something like Pistol Load for a Wide Load. Probably won't happen though. Nobody ever likes my marketing ideas. :(

    I am speaking of proportion, not raw numbers. The tariff was a more a sectional issue for Democrats than Republicans. Hunter first tabled the bill because he wanted to propose his own version of the house bill for his senate colleagues. He wanted more deliberate consideration. This was not really possible because the first senate session was ending shortly after the house bill passed. The second senate session would not resume until after the fall elections. Since there was a long gap between sessions at this time (almost six months), you can't necessarily consider Hunter's first suspension of the bill as "filibuster." In fact, there were many Democrats who urged a vote on the bill. The bill was later resurrected by Pennsylvania's Cameron immediately after Lincoln's election victory. The atmosphere was now much different because the Republican senate election wins and shift of power. That made if more dire for Hunter, along with Pennsylvania's conditional support of the tariff tied with their now connection to the Republican Party. The momentum had greatly shifted in six months, with the north and south division becoming even more apparent. It's no accident that South Carolina issued their secession document only two weeks after Cameron's hasty motion to reintroduce the bill.

    You are exceptionally correct, so correct that I think things need to be spelled out for all those people who do not think for themselves? So why dont we all make a list? What could go wrong with Only Digital Currency? - What happens if the power goes out? - What happens if a Bank is Hacked? - What happens when your neighbor can see a list of everything you buy? - What happens when your enemies can see a list of everything you buy? - What happens when your Employer can see a list of evertthing you buy? - What happens when your Insurance Company can see a list of evertthing you buy? - What happens when your government can see a list of evertthing you buy?

    This is an obvious example of the difference between What is Right, and What is Easy. Lets face it, learning a new language is quite hard. The choice of many (not all) non english speakers to do two things, to do the right thing, which is to learn the language of the community in which they live, and yes, that is quite hard, but also most feel the right thing to do, or, their alternative is to do the easy thing, which is to demand everyone else learn their language. Sadly, these same values are passed on to many generations of kids that grow up that also make the choice of what is easy, which is to not learn english. It is always easier to demand someone else take responsibility for your own actions, which here, means to try to force someone else to learn your language rather than learn a new language yourself. Much of this depends greatly on where a person lives. I remember a quote that said something to the effect of "we are citizens of our native tongue". If I moved to Russia, people in Russia would expect I learn to speak Russian. If I moved to Portugal, people there would expect me to learn to speak Portuguese. Likewise, a Russian or Brazillian or Equadorian moves here, we expect them to learn to speak english. I think that is only fair because there are two major perspectives conflicting with each other: the perspective of the Individual, and the perspective of the collective Society. These two perspectives are not in sync. What I think many people feel is happening is that we get single individuals demanding an entire society learn to speak their language instead of the individual changing themselves to become a part of that society. One person learn english or fifty thousand learn to speak spanish. Eventually those numbers shift and one becomes ten, ten becomes a hundred, hundred becomes a thousand. We end up with a total conflict between two societies, one of which having grown by expecting their host to adapt to their demands and displace their native citizenry by claiming things like "Microaggression" or other utter nonsense such as the display of the national flag of your host country as "Racist". The true responsibility of any society is to protect the value of its individuals. With that having been said, the expectations of immigrants to adapt their entire societies to satisfy the easy demands of individual immigrants to change their entire language to suit them is the result of a failure of that society to protect its individuals. Its nothing more than a conflict of personal psychology vs group psychology. The easy choice for an individual is the hard choice for the society, which in this case appears to be in direct conflict with the hard choice of an individual being the easy choice for society. It is easy for a society to take from the individual and expect they always fend for themselves, yet, provide no support to the individual when they are challenged by things that are beyond their ability to control. Not everyone was "lucky" enough to be born in a country they want to be born in. I cant hold the individuals responsible for things that are beyond any measure of their control, such as being born of any skin color, gender, nationality, who their parents are, etc. I do charge each of those individuals with adopting the group values when they do have an ability to learn a foreign language, despite it being hard. I didnt move to their country and demand they all learn to speak my language, but it is somehow okay for them to do that to us? If they want to be "American", then come here to be "Americans", not Immigrants in America. Are you hispanic? Beyond your control, but learning english is within your power. Be an "American" if you want to live in America. Otherwise, youre just a tourist. The willingness of the individual to support the society and the group values such as language in which they live is what strengthens that community. Continuing efforts to undermine...
