    What is this? Most state level campaigns spend a lot of money on meals for meetings with donors and activists. This is a great use of campaign funds.

    It's just something to post on twitter for fun. Lately he's leaning towards giving his opinions on things that are really pointless and a waste of time in the grand scheme. Such as whether tax breaks = subsidies. http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?523727-Amash-wades-into-tax-break-debate

    Beggers can't be choosers. For once a president did the right thing and Amash is bitching about perfection, I'm sorry, I agree with Amash most of the time but he should sthu here. Nothing Trump did regarding meeting Russia undermined our liberty or peace, so I give him a 100% grade on that summit. I'm not saying he's Dr Paul but effectively speaking at that meeting he did the same thing. Now he's threatening Iran, Amash should have saved his criticism for that kind of thing and given praise when deserved. Instead he's being a whiny princess and the pea who won't be happy with anything, still support the guy but he's really being annoying.

    As noted here... I was interested in any questions site members would have for Rand Paul as I was going to be able to ask him a question or two. At this point, the mission has been accomplished. I appreciated all of the questions, it certainly would have been great to get to ask a lot but I was more than pleased with the outcome. Here's the run-down... Good question, I couldn't quite get this question in but he did talk some about the SCOTUS and the general take is to do it right.

    Нахождение основного набора принципов, которые можно применить на протяжении всей жизни для достижения социальной гармонии, - это процесс мышления, который был выполнен философами на протяжении всей истории. Это также мыслительный процесс, который применяется здесь. Стремление к основным принципам для построения общества показало, что идеалы свободы и справедливости в сочетании со свободными и честными рынками - это план, который позволяет процветанию человечества. Приблизительное определение этих идеалов выглядит следующим образом: Свобода: вы должны быть свободны вести свою жизнь по-своему, если это не мешает другим делать то же самое. Правосудие: Людей следует привлекать к ответственности за совершенные ими преступления. Свободные и честные рынки: люди могут обмениваться в торговле без ограничений и должны быть честными в своих отношениях. :eek: :p :cool: :)

    I'm with Rand. Trump is either going to imperfectly push for peace or embrace interventionism, he has flirted with both. Criticizing his performance if you support diplomacy doesn't push him more into the Amash camp, it tells him to listen to Bolton if he wants to be popular. If Ron or Rand were president they would have met with Putin and received this same flak. About time to err on the side of humility in foreign relations.

A breakdown of the Axiom's involved in the issue...

Axiom 2: Antitrust laws only have value when they are back by forcing others to comply, such as with breaking up a monopoly by taking control over resources. Axiom 3: It is immoral to apply force against others when they have not done anything wrong.

For the sake of argument, let's say you statement is correct, that the economy did boom when there was a top tax rate of 91%. Question- does that make it right? Did the people being taxed 91% agree to this? One can presume they didn't, so what is the justification for this tax? Does the benefit to the whole ("the economy") make it morally and ethically acceptable to tax someone at 91%? What about 92%? Or 93%, 94%, ... 99%? Why not just take it all if it makes the economy boom? Why not, since that is the objective here. So let's say that the people being taxed 91% didn't agree to this, but were fine paying for services they utilized such that they helped pay for the roads they use, they pay for local fire and police protection, patent filling fees, court costs and such. Let's say this voluntary exchange doesn't come close to 91%, should the rest still be taken? Can you explain how it makes it right for a group of people to lay claim to the wages and earnings of someone else in this case? Remember, the government is nothing more than a group of people.

"America has the highest gun violence in the world" (reference to murder rate) Murder is a terrible thing and certainly no one wants to see one of their loved ones murdered. To directly answer your question, I don't know anyone who is delusion on the dangers of guns, guns are designed to hurt/kill, so they are inherently dangerous. Most people know this.

    To answer, it's of value to examine how it's down now. This is a framework that can apply for many similar situations... 1. There is some identification of a problem. Scientist / researchers ID that some human behavior is causing a long term issue. 2. There is campaign to grow awareness of the problem, people debate the research and the real impact of the issue. 3. Coalitions are built to set a policy to fix the problem. 4. Laws get past, people get notified. 5. Funds are used to enforce the law. 6. Forced is used to make violators comply with the law. 7. If too many people disagree with the law a war of sorts breaks out.

    I think you can teach your beliefs and critical thinking at the same time. Kids learning things on their own is often the best, but parents have the chance to teach them the most important things they themselves have learned throughout their lives. Things that they think will help their kids to live a healthy happy life. Things that they wished they knew when they were kids instead of figuring them out at 35. That might include lots of things, how to change a tire, to not eat yellow snow, the importance of personal freedom. For some that may include the opinion that religion is bunk, even a lot of Christians will say that organized religion as we know it is a joke. For me though the most important thing in my personal journey has been coming to the belief that there is a God and he is knowable. Whether that sounds weird or off the wall is not my concern, I'd share it with anyone. I just honestly agree with Jesus when he said seek and you shall find, I hold that I have. I don't think sharing that is brainwashing though because I don't tell anyone they should believe because I do or the book I read says so. I would just tell the kids to look for truth themselves. If someone doesn't want to look for God, or says they tried, or whatever else I don't try to shove my beliefs down their throat. In fact I love hearing of their own journey over a beer no matter what it has been. Because I do believe in truth, if I am wrong my opinions should die with me. So many people don't see it that way. Religious people often want others to believe in something because they do. This seems silly because of course it seems to the nonbeliever that the religious person just believes because someone else told them to. Atheists often mock those who do believe in something, and say only children believe in things they can't see. This seems silly to those who have had religious experiences, because the atheist seems to be saying that his lack of reasons to believe in a God means that no one else could possibly have one. Both examples show human arrogance, and clearly both can lead to teaching a child something other than the pursuit of truth. At the same time though an honest atheist, believer, or agnostic for that matter can both teach what they believe and a pursuit of truth. "Based on my years spent on this earth I believe/don't believe/ don't know/ don't care about X, here is why ____________, go out on your own and see what you find if it interests you."
