    I don't care if Trump is an asshole or not. The problem is the results of his actions. The fact that he knows how to throw the exact bone you need to win your support when he is carrying out a Holocaust in Yemen, murdering people in Afghanistan, placing Supreme Court justices on the stand who vow to shred the Constitution, and every other evil, just means he knows how to play you like a fiddle.

    Like I said, jails are expensive. Instead they'll just destroy your life through fines and extortion. That is oh so more civilized. Not that you're thinking is in any case logical to start with. I mean the retort is stupidly obvious to anyone who isn't a government shill. Not supporting the murder of thousands or imprisoning people for smoking weed> Supporting the murder of thousands but making weed legal. My stance is better than yours no matter how you cut it. And no matter how you cut it you willing chose to support mass murder. There is no spectrum. That isn't how democracy works. You don't get to claim that you support one thing but not the other. When you vote for someone you empower them to do whatever they can do, no matter what it is. You own their choices. And you chose to support a mass murderer. Who wasn't even promising to let you smoke weed at the time! And now you own his choices to kill.

    Sure you "question authority." If you didn't ask it what it wants you to do, how would you know what the think or how to act? Donald Trump can murder thousands of innocent people but as long as he lets you smoke weed you're happy. And you call me the insane one. Of course actually questioning authority is something you would label as crazy.

    Ah, that old attack by the baseless hypocrite. Treating people actually standing for human liberty as if they're fools while pretending supporting the powers that rape, pillage, murder and enslave at will as a virtue is one of the most foolish and stupid arguments you can muster. That it is the best you can develop simply demonstrates my argument was correct and you're incapable of saying otherwise. You know these are the things Trump is doing and you know you helped place him in power to do them and you know that you've continued to support him despite the fact that he has continued the destruction of life and liberty apace. You cannot deny the reality of your role in his actions. And so you don't even try. Instead you try and make others appear weak for opposing them. Well, let me speak plain. If standing for human dignity and liberty is too "purist" to you then you're so full of crap you're eyes must be brown. That basic human liberty is too much for you to support just demonstrates how much of an enemy to liberty you are, despite your virtue signalling otherwise. And in case you somehow missed it in my original post. I didn't say you were "a murderous Nazi as well as a racist, bigoted, homophobe, Islamaphobe" or anything else. You don't have to be. All you have to do is support and empower those who actively are. Whether you are or are not is irrelevant compared to the outcome of your actions. Most Germans weren't Nazis either. They merely allowed the Nazis to exist and rule. The difference was meaningless for those in the gas chambers.

Get outta here with that garbage. You're a great example of exactly what I'm talking about. You don't give a single bit about liberty. You're just a mark, thinking and doing what you're told to think and do by your Republican Overlords. You're a perfect example of an Outer Party Member. What you're told to think is "fact" and anything else is "propaganda" and never will you confuse the two. The destruction of life and liberty continues apace and instead of having your face crushed beneath the boot you've opted for licking it.

    Thanks for the OP post donnay. It was a retrospective study so we have to take it with a grain of sodium ascorbate (pun intended!), but interesting nonetheless. There are currently trials underway to determine high dose Vitamin C therapy for sepsis and cancer. Hoping some real good data comes out of it. Personally I take 1 G sodium ascorbate together with 1.9 G of Liposomal Vitamin C, two to three times per day, for anywhere between 6-9 G daily and I double it temporarily if I catch a cold. So far so good. YMMV as the GI upset can be significant at high doses.

    Hell yes he was. Hamilton was a monarchist who gave a speech during the Constitutional Convention that wanted to create an "elective monarchy." The man wasn't a closet monarchist, he was openly a monarchist. And he had no love for either the republican or democratic principles in the US Constitution. He merely wanted to concentrate as much power as he could into the hands of the few. If you want someone to blame for the Oligarchy's inevitable development, Hamilton is the one you should start with.

    It isn't simple. The US is a combination of democracy and republican systems. A straight democratic system obviously involves direct democracy, something that has never existed. A straight republican system has a class of rulers that direct the government and the people have little to no say over who these people are going to be. Example, look at Rome. The people had some veto powers in their different assemblies, but they only elected a single office- the Tribune. The powers of the government were separate as a way to balance the competing powers of Executive (in Rome's case the Consul) and the Legislature (in Rome's case the Senate). The American system sought to balance both of these ideas. The people would have direct election through the House of Representatives. Likewise they would elect the President directly in their various States. The Electoral College is often accused of being anti-democratic, but this just isn't true. In a system where the States are independent sovereign states as in the early American government the President of the federation was elected directly by the people, then each state took part in the College representing the direct will of the people of the State. These are all elements of democracy. Likewise, republican elements are introduced into the system through the original appointment of the Senate by the legislators of the states the Senators are from. Even then there is an element of democracy in it as the Legislatures that appoint Senators are directly elected by the people of their States. The other major republican element was the separation of powers between separate branches, whereas democracy in its purist form had no separation of powers or limits. The point is that neither system dominated the United States. It is best referred to as a Democratic-Republic or perhaps a Republican-Democratic. As for how well it worked, well go back to 1800 and ask any black man or woman how well their human rights were protected. In regards to the millions of slaves, America was neither democracy nor republic but a totalitarian dictatorship which completely dominated, robbed, tortured, and murdered millions through absolute military rule. The case was barely better for Native Americans. And it was a totally authoritarian system for women as they had little to no property rights, could not vote, could not consent to be governed, and were therefore dominated by a system of government in which they had no representation. No person could rightly say the rights of these millions of people were protected in any fashion.

    Same thing with immigrants. When polled for party loyalty they vote Democrat, largely because of the slightly less severe immigration policies of the Democrats over the Republicans. At least the Democrats will let children stay with their mothers while the family is thrown into the gulag. Of course even this difference largely disappears by the time you get to the second generation, where immigrants are more likely to be Republican than teh first generation. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/volokh-conspiracy/wp/2015/02/27/immigrants-political-views-are-a-lot-closer-to-those-of-natives-than-you-might-think/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.aacb3edadbfb But once you start breaking down issues to each position immigrants start favoring position much more attuned to libertarian ideas than either major party. The issue is that people in American treat political parties as part of some idiotic tribal identity. It is nationalism within nationalism.

    If you voted for Hitler because he promised ti improve the national roads would that make you a Nazi? No. Would the difference matter? No. You still put him in power and you own what he does with it. Same thing with Trump. You want to vote for him based on the empty promise of prison reform, go right ahead. You'll just be a fool. Prison "reform" without the legalization of marijuana, for example, is simply an illusion. And it isn't reform if you still are imprisoning people for nonviolent "crimes." All the state is doing is spending less on imprisoning them while extracting more form them in terms of fines and penalties. You'll still end up with tens of thousands of innocent people imprisoned by the State and tens of thousands more having crippling fines and sanctions placed on them for smoking a joint. It isn't reform, it is a shift in how the government extorts the people.

    Talk about a silly response. You can immediately know that anyone talking about trading liberty for security is absolutely just another thief looking to rob you for you and tell you it is for your own good. There is no trade off for security when you choose liberty. Maximum liberty also allows for you to have maximum security and complete order. Thinking that surrendering your body, property, and mind to constant brainwashing, theft, and violation somehow makes you safe isn't just stupid, it is delusional. Reducing yourself to servility to the government makes you weak, not strong, exposes you to its constant harassment, danger, and violence; it does not make you safe. It creates disorder on a mass scale as it submits everything to the whims of those in power. Nor do I need to ask permission from you or the warlords you support to engage in peaceful trade with any other person, nor do they need to ask it from you. And if you insist on forcing me to do so or you will beat, cage, or kill me or another then you know nothing of the law. The only Law is Natural Law, the natural right of human beings to engage in peaceful relationships and interact as long as they do not violate the rights of others. This is the essence of what Life, Liberty, Property, and Pursuit of Happiness mean. What you propose is none of these things and it is not Law. It is Chaos, the chaos of those in power to force their will on the masses through overwhelming violence. And their edicts change with their whims, leading to social, political, and economic chaos. There is nothing anarchist in this understanding. That you would suggest it only demonstrates you know little about that which you profess to care about- liberty and order. This is basic classical liberal thinking. It is Locke, Jefferson, and Bastiat boiled down to their most concentrated message. That you do not recognize it speaks more to the mental conditioning you were subjected to as a child that has taught you obedience, subservience, and the surrender of your liberty for the idol of Security. Do yourself a favor and start educating yourself in the power of liberty. Bastiat's "The Law" -available at the link as a free pdf- is an easy place to start.

    Want to build a wall around the nation and create a massive police state with a large enough domestic army to beat, rob, and kill millions of innocent people for the "crime" of peacefully engaging in the free exchange of goods and services without first seeking the permission of the almighty centralized state is not the position of "liberty folks." All you see here are two forms of socialists fighting over whose vision gets implemented- the Marxists or the Fascists. Those who really support human liberty and universal rights recognize you for what you are, the enemies of freedom.

    You trolls really have to figure out what your message is. Either I'm an anarchist or I'm a communist. I can't be both. I cannot be simultaneously for an all-powerful central government and against any form of formalized political government's existence. But then, why would I expect something like rationality and logic from someone who is obviously just a paid stooge? Oh, and if you aren't defending yourself, you're certainly acting like you are. No one mentioned you by name or implied you in any way. Yet here you are protesting as if someone has called you out personally. Someone mentions paid Republican trolls and you pop up immediately to try and change the subject, even talking about "us." You're giving the game away and revealing yourself. But then again, intelligence isn't required to lick boots. Fascists such as yourself have always been thick of skull and light on intelligence.

    You know, certain among us always accused others of being paid liberal trolls. But if you think about that, it makes little sense. Surely the Democratic Party and its supporters understand that there is little to no goodwill for them here and that trying to generate it would be just throwing money into the void. On the other hand, paid Republican trolls makes a lot of sense. Too many still fall for the classic "Republicans vs. Democrats, Small Government vs. Big Government" trick. Most have been trained form youth to automatically idolize the flag and worship the nation (nationalism). So placing trolls among us to try and stir those irrational feelings up among us so that we support the Republicans for any reason, or think they're better in any way, seems like it would be money well spent. It is how you manipulate so-called libertarians, minarchists, and voluntaryists into supporting the Deep State agenda of the Republican Party. Its all about false choices and the illusion of dichotomy.

    People have the capacity to reason. You don't need to always show them the whole thing. A strong statement telling them that they are wrong is often all you need to do. Then they do the rest, at least when the other person can think.

    If they're feeling like idiots, they will feel bad. Feeling bad makes people try to do something different to feel better. So they might just go ahead and think and stop being idiots.
