    Good for them. California has at least talked about enacting their constitutional right to secede in recent years, whether a bluff or not, and is right on this issue. Maybe there is still hope for them, *glances at nearest road*.. ..or maybe not.

    Can libertarians/ancaps get all of the benefits of reparations as well, since we have been scorned, ridiculed, harassed, ignored, ostracized, bullied, antagonized, mocked, patronized, and all of the other endless things "qualifying undesirable" groups get thrown their way?

    Maybe this is not the thread to put down these thoughts, but what the heck. Although I see a ton of disagreement and different strategies laid out in the thread, I find myself agreeing with just about everyone for different reasons. The thing that matters the most to me, is putting in some level of effort and work into realizing these strategies and talking to people with some sense of passion or conviction about what you feel is going wrong right now with political parties, the country, and the world. Doing nothing and letting reality pass you by while other more ambitious folk decide your future for you and everyone you know will certainly not result in a desired outcome. I'm talking to anyone and everyone that will listen (and those that will not) about all of the topics we see pop up here on a daily basis. All of my neighbors, locals, friends, and family are informed about this stuff, and many of them were not until I let them know. Social media is one avenue, you can reach a lot of people there and through videos etc, but there are a ton of people that do not use those platforms, you've gotta look local too. And yeah, you get some eye rolls, oh well, but it has opened up a lot of surprisingly productive conversations with people that I figured would despise talking about any of these topics. When I brought some of this stuff up circa 2007, people laughed, when I bring it up now, those same people seem engaged. People are fed up with what's happening in the government and the endless supply of lies we are being fed from all angles. It's not reflected on the msm news or other pre-approved forms of media, but I think the reality of the situation is starting to sink in. This is not nearly enough to make a difference on it's own, not even close, but it's a start. If everyone is educating (unlearning) people around them, then I truly feel we will see things moving in a different direction soon and this pivot away from the status quo has surely already begun.

    It probably goes without saying, but it is not only time for libertarians to stop working with the GOP, but for all people to abandon both of these parties that hate and despise every last person that makes up their voting base. Some liberal minded people have their #walkaway movement going and I'm seeing ordinary folks taking notice of it too. All of these parties are already in the process of dying, same with the legacy media that has helped prop them up. In my estimation, Trump gave some of these disenfranchised citizens a last bit of hope in some ways, or a last gasp attempt for the GOP to do something right, but Trump is going to be gone in 2-6 years regardless of what you think of him and regardless of what happens in 2020 and then they are going to be left with reality. It isn't happening today or tomorrow, but it's happening within all of our lifetimes and it may be happening sooner than any of us could have imagined. People are moving on and not buying into the garbage anymore. The Iran false flag(s) in recent days and the response by "normies" even rolling their eyes at the entire thing is a sign of this. There will be those that say "nope, we're screwed" or "I'm not holding my breath" and will stick to that mantra to their dying breath. If that's what they want to do with their time here, then that's their prerogative. There is still a lot of work to do, but you can see all of this is already in the process of happening thanks to forums like this , video sharing sites, and even social media networks that many of us despise, and all of these are having a hand in the enlightenment of the people to the debt, the corporate control and influence, the illusion of liberty and free elections, and fraud that is our current nation building, Israel protecting, fascist/communist welfare for all empire. I pray to God that we can accomplish this all without too many people dying. Some days it feels like we can, other days it feels like some ridiculous battle with various factions fighting leftism/communism/socialism that will not let go of the idea of having everyone live under their vision of "equality for all" must be enforced by "any means necessary." I think they will cower in the end, but as this country (and others throughout history) has proven, propaganda can get just about anyone to do evil things in the name of perceived justice and victory.

    This is the type of work Amash has done in the past that got him a lot of the praise he deserved. Do not let up Justin, keep pushing.. this is why many of us have donated and supported many/all of your campaigns.

    Neocons like Bill Kristol and pretty much all of the MSM are supporting Amash, solely on this issue. It is not hard to see why people are wondering what the hell is going on here when you have the all the Warmongers giving you a round of applause. Amash has been solid in his voting record and consistency and following the constitution as closely as possible in determining how to vote since he got into office. That coupled with his transparency and dialogue with citizens on Facebook or at town halls is what earned him his own sub-forum here and why I'm sure many of us donated to multiple campaigns. With a solid long time record like that, it is not hard to see why many are currently baffled by the recent remarks and stating their concerns on the board. People, including mods, were pretty upset when Rand Paul endorsed Mitt Romney here as well and there were threads made with lots of anger and disappointment to say the least. http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?379774-Rand-Paul-officially-endorses-Mitt-Romney&highlight=rand+endorses+mitt+romney Rand was wrong on that one just like Amash is in all likelihood wrong here and they were/are both likely playing politics at the cost of their integrity. Those calling for bans are being disingenuous at best.

    Came across a video talking about this issue today. Dave Smith, a libertarian comedian and Ron Paul fan, had similar questions as some of those posed in this thread on his podcast, 'Part of the Problem', last week. He does think Trump could be impeached on a number of issues, but he said Amash is wrong or up to something by focusing on this issue, and it's unclear why since Amash has been good since joining Congress. He starts getting into it around the 5 minute mark. A lot of the best stuff is in the first 30 minutes, but he goes on for over an hour on the topic. If you can tolerate the vulgarity, it's a good listen: I think I agree with many of the concerns Dave had here. The quote he said earlier on in the video that went along the lines of "if you're a libertarian, this wouldn't even make the top 100 reasons to impeach." rings true. So many countless others that Trump is likely guilty of as far as constitutional law is concerned, yet close to zero time has ever been committed to any of these from Amash or any other member of Congress. They make it appear as if there is only one focal point, and that's collusion and now obstruction. All of the other war crimes we are supposed to forget about. Amash is now helping in that effort unfortunately, by keeping the focus with the most absurd talking points and allying himself with the media overlords. And also the comment in the video he made about every president in our lifetime warranting impeachment is true as well, which brings up the point, why wasn't Amash calling out Obama, Clapper (who clearly lied under oath), Brennan, and the whole lot of them with this level of scrutiny to the point of calling for their impeachment. Dave had been a guest on the Ron Paul Liberty Report a couple of years ago and RP was his inspiration for getting more active into politics and economic theory. Video below for reference:
