    I have not ruled out this is planned. The origin of the "inside info" so to speak of Gamestop being 140% shorted was convenient. Also, there's people commenting that the million dollar investors in WBS are suspect (Portnoy being one). It's not outside the possibility-in my mind-of these redditors being the Q-tard equivalents who instead of "storming the capitol" and patsy-ing themselves into P.A.T.R.I.O.T. Act 2.0, end up being the pin that pops the derivatives bubble or perhaps silver/gold (already talk of them moving into silver). That being said... It's certainly fun to watch.

    Yeah. I saw that. It seems that Giuliani went beyond the "There are serious problems we should look at based on the numbers and the anecdotal reports" position that Rand took and went with the indefensible position "Dominion Voting Systems was created in Venezuela" argument. Based on the fact that he used it to sell gold coins means he might actually lose this lawsuit. This kind of reminds me of 9/11 truth. There is the defensible "There was no excuse for the visa express program that let terrorists into America over the objection of state department screeners, there were wargames going on the same day that simulated the almost identical scenario and there's no good explanation for what happened to WTC 7" which got burdened by the indefensible "No airplanes struck the towers" argument.

    And....I will quote your words back to you one more time. ^There they are. In plain text without any editing. What I argued initially against what the idea that evidence showing that the "Trump won the vast majority of counties were dominion voting systems were used" should, by itself be "enough to derail this particular crazy train." Your assertion is based on the assumption that the "crazy train" is arguing that Trump was cheated out "winning" the counties where the Dominion voting machines were used when simply "suppressing" Trump votes in Dominion counties or "inflating" Biden votes in Dominion counties could be enough for Biden to win a statewide race even without the county itself flipping.

    :rolleyes: Trump "fanfic?" Okay. 1) If you think I am a Trump "fan" then you aren't very bright. 2) If you don't understand how a cross examination works, even after I explained it to you, then you aren't very bright. Once against, cross examinations are done by asking leading for which you already know the answer. The person you are questioning only has two choices. Either they answer "yes" or the perjure themselves. I am sorry I called you dishonest when I should have just called you stupid and been done with it.

    LOL. Only at RPF can a thread about a boss move showing how Rand destroyed the substance of the Dems impeachment article can it turn into a debate about an obscure constitutional issue. Anyhow.... 1) Trump was still president when he was impeached as impeachment is done in the House and it occurred prior to Biden being sworn in. 2) There is precedent for an impeachment trial occurring after someone had already left office. https://www.foxnews.com/politics/can-senate-hold-impeachment-trial-after-presidents-term

    Do we still have faith that ANY of these organizations aren't co-opted to the core? Remember how fast they got the Tea Party. CFL has credibility in my mind, but we don't use it. Not saying CFL "is the way", but it seems that what has potential we ignore, and what is co-opted and controlled my MSM narrative, that's what follow, believe in, admire, and even when we are against it or hate it, we constantly talk about it. Trapped in the hall of mirrors.

    The people most at risk for dying from vaccine complications are the same people being prioritized to get the vaccine. SMH! The reason for "herd immunity" is you immunize people in the herd who can stomach the vaccine in the hopes that herd immunity protects the weak. Instead this sounds like a culling of the weak.

    Every video that I have seen of him leaving the construction site he is empty handed. If you have a video showing him with something in his hand as he is leaving the site please post it. As for what was supposedly seen in the road, have you never seen a piece of branch or tire tread in the road? None of the defendants have EVER claimed he was carrying something or dropped something. As for grabbing the shotgun, well this guy saved the lives of people in a waffle house by grabbing an AR-15. https://www.foxnews.com/us/waffle-house-patron-29-hailed-a-hero-after-snatching-gun-from-shooter One of the men chasing Abrey actually side swiped him with the truck. It wasn't hard enough to disable him but that had to be scary. Under those circumstances it's not illogical to think your life may be forfeit if you DON'T try to disarm the assailant. So no. I don't support your theory on Arbery. But I don't think you should be banned for it nor do I think RPF should face liability over it.

    A) It's not a "few exceptions." B) Define "rich." An NBA "millionaire" who makes his money from his salary is "rich" by some definitions of the word but the reason he pays such a high tax rate is that he makes his money from salary rather than corporate investments. Educate yourself about taxes.

    Rand is the alpha male. Trump is the cuck. And Klobuchar didn't want to talk because she in 2019 signed onto a letter with Elizabeth Warren that Dominion voting machines may have stolen an election in Georgia in 2019 on behalf of Republicans. http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?550745-DEMOCRATS-Elizabeth-Warren-And-Amy-Klobochar-Attacked-Dominion-Voting-Systems You don't change things by gassing up your followers with a phony "plan" to try to get people like Rand Paul and Mike Pence to overturn the election on January 6th after the electoral college already voted and the states had already certified the election, fraudulent or not.

    Sometimes using "multiple angles" is a good thing and sometimes not. If terrorists had hostages in a small enclosed space a sniper with a clear should would be a good idea. A Hellfire missile would not be. The issue is collateral damage. There is no collateral damage against websites like RonPaulForums.com from the Sherman Anti Trust angle because, RonPaulForums.com is not a trust. However you try to repeal, rewrite, or judicially re-interpret Section 230, there is risk to websites like RonPaulForums.com and risk to freedom a speech. One way a website can avoid liability for controversial points of view that might be libelous is to do MORE of what Facebook and Twitter are currently doing.

    SMH. You are totally missing the point. It's not YOU that the forum would have to worry about. It's someone else who may not even be on this forum who reads something you wrote that the forum would have to be worried about! Let's take the Ahmaud Abrey case. People on this forum were claiming he was carrying a hammer or something right before he was killed. All of the actual video evidence proves that's false. But some people persisted in it. We are such a small fish in a big ocean that such libel isn't an issue. But it could be. Or take the Sandy Hook or Pizzagate conspiracy theories. Alex Jones already had to settle lawsuits on both of those. Say if EVERY web-forum that that allowed such conspiracy theories to be pushed were liable to being sued? Would that lead to more free speech or less? And don't kid yourself into thinking that can't happen. And you might say "Well those conspiracy theories are true." You have the right to believe that. That doesn't mean you won't lose in court for propagating them. Now, I like what you said here: "individuals are personally responsible....not platforms." That is exactly the point of Section 230! Exactly! 100%! A state court had held Prodigy Inc. liable for the content of an individual's post being libel against someone who wasn't even on Prodigy Inc. The court's reasoning? Because Prodigy Inc. had removed some offensive content, Prodigy Inc. was acting like a "publisher" and not a "platform." So either Prodigy Inc. had not moderate NOTHING in order escape liability (porn, child porn, prostitute ads, whatever), or Prodigy Inc. was responsible for EVERYTHING (user X saying that the local burger joint had a roach infestation). This is where TheCount has a better understanding of this issue than some here. Section 230 has never been about end user's ability to sue over their post being deleted or editorialized or edited. It's always been about whether some third party, that might not even use the service, can sue the platform over what what the users post. You're right in your gut thinking that such lawsuits shouldn't be allowed.

    Yeah....but sometimes people get banned for reasons that have nothing to do with violation of the political mission statement. In fact sometimes it's hard to figure out why someone got banned. The fallback argument is always "Well it's our private property so we can do what we want." Okay. That might not hold up under the new judicial review that regime that you want. In fact I'm CERTAIN it wouldn't hold up. There are too many examples of people who fully support the political mission statement in word and deed who have nonetheless been arbitrarily de-platformed here. Also nothing in the language of Section 230 even comes close to supporting the "political mission statement" exception.

    Hmmmm...."Good faith." Here's where things get sticky. Back in 2016 Facebook was hauled in front of congressional committees to answer for there "misdeeds" of "not reigning in Russian bots" that were "hacking the election." And of course the pressure is ramping up to "reign in" the "Q-Anon terrorists" that caused the January 6th "insurrection." Before 2016 the issue was how to stop ISIS from "radicalizing using social media." And no. It doesn't come down to section 230. That's a red herring. This very forum would not survive section 230 repeal. Not even a redefinition of "good faith." I explain that over and over again and nobody seems to get it. The problem with big corporate tech is....it's big corporate tech. If Facebook had the size and scope of RonPaulForums.com nobody would give a rat's ass how arbitrarily they ran their website. But they aren't that size and scope. They are a huge mega-corporation. Corporate person-hood is the problem. And when you have multiple corporations operating as a trust, sharing data and conspiring to control as much of the sector as possible, that's a violation of the Sherman Anti-Trust act. There is already a vehicle in place to deal with this situation that doesn't get into the impossibly vague question of WTH "good faith" means.

    Well, you'd then be a 4-point Arminian (or 3 if you also believe in total depravity.) Either way, I'd just consider you a moderate Arminian, though I'm not going to try to force you to identify with any label. But, I consider pretty much everyone who doesn't believe in unconditional election to be "Arminian" in some sense. That probably isn't strictly accurate though

    Spurgeon was an interesting one. He's not Calvinistic enough for the very "high" Calvinists, yet he's too Calvinistic for the Arminians I respect at the very least that you don't lie about Spurgeon. Many Arminians falsely claim that Spurgeon wasn't a Calvinist, and even insult his intelligence by claiming that he didn't know what Calvinism was when he was talking about it! To be sure, Spurgeon's "Calvinism" was very different than that of A.W. Pink. There's as much variety among us as there is among non-Calvinists
