    To the common man, often is the case that something isn't real until it's on tv or film. I hope that applies here to people that still take the side of the NSA and watch the film.

    This 100x. This is what people want nowadays. Convenient and entertaining content. They want something they can listen to while they are busy with their career or life in general or a video to look at while lounging at home in front of the tv/computer. Some type of video podcast that keeps us in the loop on current events from a liberty minded perspective. We already have the Ron Paul Channel and excellent podcasts like the one Tom Woods provides, but there is still no comprehensive video podcast that incorporates both techniques that would appeal to an average citizen. The Young Turks appeals to progressive lefties, Glenn Beck appeals to tea party conservatives, yet there is still nothing like either of those for true libertarians. We have a mish mash of that content among many different podcasts, it just needs to get consolidated and easily accessible via Youtube. Easier said than done, I know. Start small, see where it goes, work on it, build it up. Still, I can't think of a better way to spread the message using popular modern forms of media and technology. I had high hopes that Truth In Media, Ben Swann's project was going to become something like this, it was arguably well funded, using kickstarter cash, but it ended up being just a basic news site, with a greater emphasis on articles, rather than videos and Ben is now working with another local news station. Ah well.

    I like him too, but yeah, Gary Johnson seems to already have the nomination in the bag. I think McAfee's history and his rebellious nature go against the grain of the shot callers for the Libertarian party. Guess we'll see.

    I think the GOP is in a lose lose situation, regardless of the final outcome. Three major possibilities can happen. 1) If the GOP has its way: If they do what they have been hinting at doing for the past few months, and "stealing" the nomination through rules changes, stealing of delegates, corrupt party insiders making back room deals, etc, then the backlash from enraged Trump supporters, the media, and people at large that are paying attention and see this as "unfair", will be damaging to what is left of the integrity of the party. Yes, very little is left. They are already backed into a corner due to the shenanigans they pulled against Ron Paul and other presidential hopefuls over the years and due to the intense coverage by the media of Trump, will amplify the backlash far more. Losing to weak candidates like Obama and potentially Clinton certainly will not help. Not ideal, but they at least get to put in "our guy" and will have temporary comfort. 2) If the GOP let's the process play itself out: Then Trump wins, and we have an outsider that never has really been a part of the Republican party winning the nomination. The policies party insiders want the party to stand for, neo-con foreign war policy, tax money being used for nation building, rather than defense, and strong religious focus and morals on social issues, will potentially be thrown to the wayside. No one knows what Trump actually wants to do or is going to do. Since we have no record to go by in the absence of past political governance, we can only go by the stuff he brags about, his authoritarianism, expanding the military, and building a bunch of things. These things may or may not coincide with what the GOP elites want or has been presented with what they stand for, as demonstrated by the "winners" of the GOP nomination in past presidential elections. The people at large see this, they know he is not liked by the party whose nomination he is seeking, yet he is the front runner. It makes the party look weak, coming apart at the seams, and no longer a concise organization of neo-conservative belief, but a party that lets people who talk the loudest and can bully the best become their representative. This is a damning image to have and even if this option does not happen, the damage has already been done. At best Trump brings instability to what the party stands for and shows cracks in its armor and at worst he undoes all the things that conservative republicans believe in (ie: Trump believes in some social issues that most Republicans do not).
