    The guy spouting off listing his accomplishments at his rallies are just fairy tales. He had the power to negotiate and end trade agreements like NAFTA rather than just rename them and make some tweaks. Just like all his other deals it is all smoke and mirrors, doing 5% while selling a line of crap to his gullible supporters with help from team player political pundits. If it was not Covid related, just like everything else his renegotiation with Mexico worked for 1 quarter before it took for the Mexicans to figure their way around it and now we are back to the same level of imports as we were before. Not that there were some things in the USMCA that were good things but for the most part his claims are weak. Antitrust enforcement declined under Trump. Again, great rhetoric, reality shows others. I could keep going but why beat a dead horse.

    It is not just tariffs and regulations that are driving companies overseas. The real estate bubble combined with property taxes make it too expensive here. The higher cost of living due to high property taxes and real estate forces employers to pay higher salaries. Another reason it is too expensive to produce here. Going more rural sometimes is not an option due to lack of local talent. Bloated local government which includes police, schools and their pensions is another factor that drives up property taxes just making it untenable. Every aspect of this is all caused by big government at every level.

    Yep. The great consolidation combined with foreign buyouts of American companies and shifting production overseas accelerated to the extreme under Obama and Trump. This is the fall out.

    The OP quoted much of the the article in his first post where the author repeatedly refers to Trump as "Orange Man" while discussing his polices throughout the entire article, including the paragraph that AF bolded. My quote exactly referred to what the author wrote using his terminology. So it is more like you are being overly sensitive when it comes to Trump.

    Credible given his background. I suppose the question is whether it gross incompetence at the lab in disinfection or intentional. I sometimes think of that passage with all that is going on.

    I have not watched it because I question the source and do not want to give him views. A man who I know approves of street justice by the police rather than the rule of law. If Dan was a member of RPF he would be on the side of the police in the police abuse threads.

    If the opposition succeeded in countering Hitler's propaganda and reached those people, it is likely those people on the top left corner would not be there. The majority of people just follow the crowd. Hitler won most of them since his rhetoric to reach the people out maneuvered all opposition just like social engineering being used to condition the masses today.

    I have no reason to lie about that. I never said anything about asking permission and have no idea where you got that from. You should go back and read my replies and yours. Maybe you would realize you are being an asshole in your replies. I simply saw this. and thought I would tell the forum my impression of her and how others, particularly Democrats reacted years back. Maybe she declined after that, IDK. You are smarter than your responses knowing that people cannot discuss legal matters in a public forum. Nothing cryptic about that and maybe again you are simply just being an asshole.

    This makes sense and maybe the only way to reach people. I know you do not like reaching people based on your comment in the other thread but if a region is separating they are going to have a list of values to get people onboard.

    You say that but allot of poor and middle class people are going to feel much unnecessary pain. No matter what happens I doubt there will be break away regions or ones resembling anything you want it to be. People are too tuned into the puppet masters news media that provides the template and leaders for everyone to follow for anything good to come out of it. Even though I am for separation, I am just not seeing anything being done to enlighten people so that the outcome is satisfactory.

    What is child like is you thinking people can simply open up in a public forum concerning private information. I usually do not mention any of my dealings with politicians in both parties and the news media since it simply is not worth the grief in and outside this forum besides being none of anyone's fucking business or I am not allowed to for various reasons.

    I sat down with Ruth for a meeting back in 2015. She seemed pretty sharp to me and no cognitive issues. They did talk about her like she was some sort of deity and there was some shock that I questioned the deity on her beliefs on a particular topic I was there to discuss with her.

    It sure looks like policy is being engineered to initiate a collapse - reset. As far as Orange Man, he was given to the people to give the illusion of choice and difference between the two parties. It allowed the right to blow of steam and identify the opposition to be dealt with. You know the people that went to bat for Trump and he left them all hanging. They threw us a bone in energy policy for a few years. If Orange Man was the real deal and concerned about his constituents paying high gas prices then he would not be telling people not to vote in 2022 and 2024. Effectively ensuring energy policy continues off the cliff being directed by the Biden/Dem establishment.

    It is a form of conditioning. Give it some time and it will actually be 44% - after they keep releasing polls like this. This is where RPF fails. You want to win you have to play the game. This means making up your own polls that say otherwise. People always follow the herd. Shock New Poll 70% of Americans want to end gun licensing 20% Want to keep gun licensing but make it more like buying a fishing license 9% Want no change to gun licensing laws. Only 1% wanted tighter gun control laws. See how that works.

    Here I was thinking what these school boards were doing was a bad thing. I hope they keep picking at this bees nest. The more people that say they want a "Mass exodus" from the public school system the better.

    Lately where I live they are shocking me. Every week it has been up across the board when I go to the grocery stores. Even McDonalds stuff I buy went up another 70 cents this week. Fast food is so expensive here it is now a luxury item. I used to go the mall food court chains for really cheap food. Only a few years ago I was surprised at how cheap it was and how much I was saving. Now I consider it a luxury eat out due to how expensive it is to eat there. The fed should be raising interest rates to lower inflation but of course they are not since they don't give a shit about the people. Only protecting the elite class.

    No one wants to be a mindless drone working for a pittance for a handful of elitist immoral Billionaires that will discard their workforce on a whim. The elites always point the finger at everyone else for their mess. People used to have a loyalty to their employer, they were taken care of with a pension and sometimes work for them their whole life. You can't say that now since the elites don't give a damn about anyone but themselves. The young people are seeing the country they were left for what it is. The crumbs called government incentives not to work as a cause is their propaganda to cover for the mess of a country they gave us.

    You can't have thousands of local farms across the country close year after year to be replaced by real estate developments and expect all agricultural products to always be available through a handful of monopolies. ​Many of which are importing from outside the country.

    It is the greed of the elites monopolies. Overseas slave labor and lax environmental laws, to pay for insane CEO salaries and packages. Destroy the elites monopolies and small/medium business will be able to compete to build here again. Everything that has happened and is currently wrong with this nation is caused by the gross immorality of the elites that look at the people as nothing more than cattle.

    They would just have more power to hassle you without having to worry about things like the Feds interfering, the Constitution-Bill of Rights. I bet if you questioned the people that wanted to separate in those polls, their kind of freedom is nothing like imagined. Like I said, I am all for and prefer separation but without some movement saying what it is going to be like you may end up with more of the same or worse depending where you are. For those that think they will be allowed to go off on their own and not be hassled, that is not going to happen when you are outnumbered by people that believe otherwise. People are easily led, it does not have to be this way. If the liberty movement was rebuilt like it was during Ron's 2008 campaign and pushed a list of separation values those people can be led away from authoritarianism. Right now you have an entire generation of young people that love of government and it's authority is all they know.

    People like to make out parts of the south are some sort of bastion of freedom. I assuming because they vote for Republican, but when you think about it really Republican Neocons and authoritarians. Some of these places the police are pretty prolific and militarized. I am all for separation but I think people my be disappointed in what may result in these regions. I know some people have completely given up on trying to reach people but if you don't try to reach people you are going to be sorely disappointed come separation day.

    Sure lets call out the poor whose jobs were sent overseas and/or lost their job due to massive monopoly consolidations. Meanwhile the monopolies that are not paying taxes always get a free pass while the country celebrates them and their leaders. Let's totally ignore the destruction of small/medium business due to the lock downs which further consolidated business into the multi-nationals and monopolies and focus on the person not having enough for their next meal.

    Just watch some man on the street videos. That is the kind of people you are dealing with that will also put up a sign like that having no clue what is really behind it. Sure there are true believers but true believers no matter the cause are few. People are too busy living their lives to be all that knowledgeable and politically active. The average people can be reached rather than always going head on. The stronger the division on both sides guided by the puppet masters the more difficult it will become to reach the average folks. With that said if I had to make a prediction I know nothing is going to change. People will continue line up whatever which way the pundits and news cycle tells them to line up. The kind of freedom you are looking for here that pundits on the right give a kind ear to are on the same side of the true believers opposite end of the spectrum (the trolls behind the sign). These are the people will nominate whatever leader of direction the right goes in - more of the same.

    My taking them down comment was speaking figuratively in a business sense of course and I do not and was not advocating violence. I take your mercenaries comment as a joke but if you are trying to bait people here into making comments advocating violence then you are in the wrong forum and should take your snitch hunt somewhere else.

  2. Warning about my posting history:

    My account password was hacked some years ago without my knowledge and some vile views or beliefs I oppose had been posted. This was unknown to me since I rarely go back and read old posts. I have done my best to search and remove posts I did not make but with 9500 posts it is possible some remain. If you read my old posts and find anything suspect that I may have missed, please contact me so I can remove it.

    This long past security intrusion was not random, targeted specifically for me, was very broad in nature and not isolated to simply just my account on RPF.
  3. Profile Friends Tab:

    I have removed, will automatically remove or decline friend requests for my profile for the sole purpose of preventing friends posts from showing up under my ALL activity tab for my profile. This is not personal or means I approve or disapprove of their posts.

    This was to clear up any confusion or misunderstanding related to my posting history here. For example "ALL activity posts" tab for a profile show posts from "friends" under this profile. That does not mean the profile holder, name me, is politically endorsing the views of said post listed or endorses the account holders political views or behavior. (it also does not mean I do not support the political views of the profile holder).

    I am simply disabling the feature to clear up any confusion people have that do not understand how this forum works or how information in this forum is presented by search engines.
