    Looks like the OP has been away from the forums for quite awhile. I think most of us have come to the conclusion that Ron Paul's numbers in 2012 were incredibly inflated due to people who were mainly contrarian. In 2012, Ron Paul was the loudest contrarian voice and had little competition. Therefore, he was like a magnet for people of all stripes that had little understanding of what Ron Paul really stood for. in 2016, the people who really got it voted for Rand, Johnson, stayed home, or wrote in Ron Paul. (that's what I did.) The rest found a home with Bernie or Trump. Both Bernie and Trump spoke to the contrarian streak in us all. "Your problems aren't your fault. The system is working against you. The establishment doesn't want you to win." The difference, of course, is that of the 3, only Ron Paul really knew the solution to those problems. Liberty. The other two are fakers.

    On the bright side, now he'll own it. Somehow Obama got away without ever really owning the disaster. The anti-war left is sure to wake up now. It's been a long coma.

    Nothing creates diversity like freedom. A better way to put this for these dummies is, "Freedom makes America diverse." You know, since it's so important to them.

    The interesting thing is if she were White and the President was Black, she would have instantly been accused of racism, and you know the mainstream media would have ran with it all the way for a touchdown.

    Great article. +rep. I think it adequately explains why I've been having such a hard time engaging in this latest "controversy". I find it extremely difficult to relate at that level of consciousness. I think many of us in this forum are experiencing the same disconnect. We are among the few.

    Hmmm... I'd caution you that this is the path of neoconnery, but I'm not sure it would make a difference. You're not really against intervention - you just want them to do it the right way? Well, that's what they ALL say. The problem, of course, is that our government can't even get our own affairs right. And even if they were to somehow intervene in a manner of which you approved, there'd be a new administration in a couple of years to do the exact opposite. In other words, you can NEVER intervene smoothly. Unfortunately, pre-crime doesn't work. And those that try it, just put a larger target on themselves. Blowback.

    Guess I need to revisit this thread to give an update. We decided on Option #3. They came down on the price for us which was a big influencer. The value for the money is really unparalleled. I'll let you know how it turns out. I'm sure the education for my son will be amazing and his peers will present plenty of unique opportunities for him and us.

    Unfortunately, that's probably exactly what you'll get. The evidence for vaccines is pretty clear. There are potential cons, but when you weigh them against the pros, it's pretty damn evident. If you want a "doctor" who ignores that evidence, don't be surprised what you find. (although, it's still pretty shitty. A real doctor would try to inform your decisions but they shouldn't refuse to see you if you choose otherwise. You shouldn't have a smoking habit either, but would the doctor refuse to see you just because you choose not to listen to him?)

    I'm pretty late to this whole thing, too, but I think it's more because I'm having trouble relating to the conversation as its being had. It's all about this group or that group and feelingz and sentimentz. When you see the people of the world as individuals and judge them each by their actions, this whole thing becomes so foreign. I'm certainly one of the most vociferous critics of Trump in here, but if I were in a car surrounded by a bunch of threatening people with bats pounding on my car, I would have gunned it. Trump did the right thing by focusing on the actions of people on all sides. He deserves credit for that.

    I have no affinity for statues of any kind. Take 'em down, leave 'em up? If it's your own property, I don't care. If it's gubmint property, I certainly don't care! Hell, if they wanted to be truthful, they'd have Marx and Machiavelli statues everywhere. Don't tell me what to put up or take down on my land and I'll do the same for you. But this whole reaction is puzzling. It just tells me how easily people are manipulated by their media.

    Nah, usually billionaires are in a position to buy their wants from the State. Apparently, this selfish billionaire thought he was special. Let this be a lesson to all you billionaires out there - freedom has a price. You may have money, but the politicians have power. They will use that power in your interests - if you give them the money.

    We are certainly set up nicely for a false flag. I mean if the financial system is finally at its breaking point, you can most certainly expect governments to do something drastic.

    The only real difference I could see is that the left media would be singing her praises while the alt media would be up in arms. Other than that, not much else would change. Maybe worse SC judges. But Obamacare would still be the law. We'd still be intervening all over the globe. Spending would still be increasing at alarming rates. The police state would still be growing. The refreshing thing, though, is that if Hillary won, we wouldn't have RPF people trying to defend this crap. As far a Michael Moore goes, I read a book of his back in the 90's in which he talked about how much he LOOOVED Hillary. She was his ideal woman. :rolleyes: Would you expect anything different from a left cheerleader?

    With the tongue in cheek righteous indignation, I'll have to give Mike Rowe a pass here. Once again, it is not the tool that is the problem but how it is misused. I find emojis to be a clever tool to succinctly express emotions in the written word. It's not meant as a replacement for language, but a supplement. One of the problems with conversational writing is that in order to express the emotions of the writer, he needs to use more words. All too often, messages are misinterpreted because the reader supplies his/her own emotions. Emojis solve this problem. "Great looking shoes, there! :rolleyes:" is easily distinguished from "Great looking shoes, there! :cool:". Tools are rarely a problem. How people use the tools, however... :eek:

    The problem with adding years onto your life is that they're all at the end. The value of a life should not be measured in the distance between the beginning and end, but by the quality of the moments in between. In other words, dying younger ain't a bad thing if you're enjoying your time. Americans spend crazy amounts of money trying to extend their end years. Which really just means they live in pointless agony longer. But they'll accept that agony if it means they can put off facing their fear of dying.

    Yeah? I guess I'm not seeing your point. The guy is a straight up interventionist? Wants to use the power of the US military to get other nations to do our bidding? I guess you're thinking because he "warned" China before that his warning to NK isn't valid? How do you decide which warnings you think are real and which ones are just ploys to force the issue in other arenas? And how any of this a good thing? Really, I think you should try inserting someone else's name into the words and actions of this guy to see if you still find any reasonable logic in this mess.

    :rolleyes: There it is again. Those sympathetic to Trump are always trying to infer what is really going on. (I know you're not a supporter, but for some reason you harbor those sympathies for him.) I wish there was some way we could get you folks to apply the same standard as you use on other politicians. :( If Bush, Obama, McCain or Clinton made those comments, I'm sure you wouldn't be trying to rationalize it in your head.

    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. I was spending so much time on the forums with these unbelievers, and when he said that, I was extremely convicted. There is nothing like spending time with brothers who build you up in the Lord and sharpen you.
