    The first time it became clear to me how biased the mainstream media truly are was Dr. Ron Paul's 2007 Presidential campaign: :mad:

    If Darwinism is true, then there can be no such thing as "rights." The reason that is is because Darwinism, at its core, precludes the possibility that there can be supernatural (or non-material) entities which affect natural (or material) entities directly. Consequently, that means non-material things such as rights cannot exist in a Darwinian worldview because all there is is matter and motion. Since rights are neither made of matter, nor are they objects subject to the laws of physics, rights cannot be ascertained by any method of discovery in Darwinism. Thus, the notion that individuals have rights to life, liberty, property, etc. is moot within a Darwinian outlook of the world. So, anyone who considers himself a Darwinist cannot argue for rights as a basic necessity of human existence, in principle. If he does, then he is being inconsistent with the metaphysical demands of his worldview, and those demands cannot allow any invisible quality nor entity to have an instance in human experience. We're all just conglomerations of subatomic particles, which, themselves, are not sentient.

    Ugh. I wouldn't use that to soak a cutting board! Blech. If you're set on that distillery, the Signature Craft is pretty good (go with the 12 year) and the Single Barrel is passable. But if you're just looking for cheap, there are much better alternatives than this swill.

    Come on, Danno, you can't seriously believe this. Political donations are used in several ways, but one of the most expensive ways is to buy media ads. So, while the media is making their political donations to Hillary on the books, they are giving HUGE sums of money to Donald free of charge in the way of airtime and print. They did it all through the primary to boost him. Even Podesta said as much in one of the Wikileaks docs. In fact, if the media had to declare the amount of "money" that they donated to Trump's campaign, they'd be listed as the biggest special interest group in the country! They ensured he was the GOP nominee to split/damage the party to make sure Hillary would have a sure path. Now, I'm not sure if Trump was a plant, or if he's just their useful idiot. At times, it seems like a little of both. Whenever some new damaging info on Hillary comes out, he's always there to redirect the public's attention. He's certainly not a liberty candidate and he's most definitely part of the establishment that craves power above all else. He's played that game his entire life. Now, that doesn't mean he's playing for the GOP establishment or the DEM establishment, but we should all know that the D and R don't really matter anymore. They are one. And Trump is part of them. Finally, this guy is playing a part and will say exactly what he thinks you want to hear. Do you really think he cares about the Constitution in any way? Do you really think he's had a revelation on private property rights, abortion, foreign interventions, trade, universal health care, or any other major issue?! Because if so, it has only been since he began eyeing the Presidency using the Republican party. If you're falling for his con because of his current rhetoric instead of evidence, then we can't help you. While his rhetoric on some things may be better than Hillary, they will BOTH turn their backs on their rhetoric in a heartbeat if it suits their current interests. Sorry to burst your hope bubble, but this election is lost. And it was lost as soon as people starting falling for the con job. You're asking for "convincing evidence" but you can't allow yourself to objectively perceive this evidence. People believe what they want to believe.

    Gut feeling? I think we have seen the mind of the "mark" in progress. Doing whatever is necessary to bend his mind to accept something that seems pleasing to him is reality. If this guy had truly read and understood The Art of the Deal, he'd notice that his fantasies were being manipulated. Nearly everything he states as fact in his "conversion" is false. Dude needs to stop watching TV and movies and get out once in a while.

    My perspective is that the fruit was always there, but Trump is picking it and throwing it all into his "deplorable basket". So that anyone who mentions that fruit in the future will be dismissed outright. We will see the damage that Trump was wrought, but it may take time for the degree of that damage to manifest itself.

    No. Just NO. And quit posting threads like this. The media's treatment of Ron Paul is completely opposite from their treatment of Trump. Paul got almost no attention - Trump gets blanket coverage. For the media, airtime and copy space = money! Look where they are putting their money!!

    Ok - a couple of things... First, your understanding of "the establishment" is off. They do not work together as one force - they fight over power constantly. But their unifying characteristic is that they covet power. They will not give it back to the people. So, just because you see some pieces of the establishment attack other pieces of the establishment doesn't make some of them "establishment" and others "anti-establishment". Now, as far as Trump being a patsy for Hillary's side of the establishment, it seems to me that he is either doing it on purpose or he is being a useful idiot for them. Not 100% sure that it isn't shades of both. But from Hillary's perspective, and the media, Trump is perfect! First, he gives them great return on their investments in terms of ratings. And, he's able to re-direct a sizable portion of ink and airtime away from Hillary's troubles. Next, he divides the GOP and hurts them down-ballot. And since he's constantly being discredited, he can go all birther, truther, or whatever, so that anyone else who does it for valid reasons can be lumped together with an idiot. And if that weren't good enough for them, it allows them to portray their opposition as uneducated, white nationalistic misogynistic, xenophobes. He's like the gift that keeps on giving! Finally, he needs to be scary enough to drive out the votes on the other side. Fear is a powerful motivator.

    Drain the swamp? Hmm... where have I heard that before? :rolleyes: That was Pelosi's mantra when the Dems took back the house. or maybe he stole it from Reagan, who also used it? In any case, it's not original and has never worked. To the issue of term limits... I've always been of the persuasion that Congressional terms should be "limited" by the voters of those districts. Would we really have wanted Ron Paul term-limited out?! When you get a good one, you want to keep them. What about Massie? Amash? I understand the reason for this and I don't really have that big of an objection to it, but I don't think it will make that much difference in practice. It's an easy thing to ask for when congressional approval ratings are so low, but in reality, people like their own rep - they just want the other one kicked out.

    5-year "bans" on free speech are completely anti-liberty! How is this hard to understand? Rand Paul's plan, which is by far better, would be to build into any government contract that the company receiving the taxpayers' $$ cannot lobby government. If they do, it's a breach of their contract. This is what a liberty position looks like for tinkering around the edges. The true liberty position, is to reduce the amount of government influence over commerce so that there is nothing to gain by lobbying.

    And since this is a repeat post, I'll make my point again as well. The problem with money in politics is NOT how it gets there; it's that the politicians have something to sell. Take away their power to affect commerce and you won't need any new government bans. Government bans don't work. You can't fix a government-created problem with more government. Haven't we learned this yet?! BTW, Rand actually put forward a potential solution by instituting a law that part of all contracts with the government would be a "no lobbying" clause. That's wholly different than Trump's proposal and is actually consistent with the principles of liberty. It still won't "solve" the problem, but it's a decent bandaid while we're waiting.

    Let me get this straight. You're "enraged" at Ron Paul, but you're promoting Trump because he supports all new types of bans?! Do you even liberty, Bro?! Rand is right to distance himself from this guy. This is a disaster in the making. BTW, the problem with money in politics is NOT how the money flows into the politicians' coffers; it's that they have something to sell. Rearranging the deck chairs will do nothing to solve this problem.

    Perhaps the most ironic thing is that the biggest beneficiary of this election "rigging" is none other than Donald Trump. It's the whole reason why he is the GOP nominee. This whole thing is part of the pre-ordained script. And it's working better than the scriptwriters could have imagined. Including the part where this idiot starts calling out the rigged system, thereby making any other claims of election rigging seem foolish. I wonder if in future elections, if someone questions the script of the deep state if they will call these people "Trumpers". Nothing like having an idiot with no credibility being the foremost decrier of the system.

    erowe1, are you seriously taking the position that cops are "innocent until proven guilty"? Or are you just messing with people here to see if they are parroting what they've been told without thinking about it?

    Mind you, I'm not talking about the not-so-subtle "Let's lynch 'em" attitude. I tend to think that's a bad idea, even if I philosophize in weird directions sometimes (its part of my efforts to stay sane while surrounded by statists IRL, give me a break). But, there is a difference between saying "we shouldn't condone harming X for Y or Z reasons" and saying "X is actually innocent."

    Note, also by "innocent" I don't even mean morally sinless, I just mean per the NAP. I'd honestly be shocked if there is a single cop who's been on the force for more than a week who isn't an NAP violator. Do you disagree?

    Thanks. One of my brothers in Christ who I respect and love told me that a Christian man should spend more time with his brothers than people in the world.

There is nothing like spending time with brothers who build you up in the Lord and sharpen you.
