    By Patrick J. Buchanan August 21, 2019 Friday, President Donald Trump met in New Jersey with his national security advisers and envoy Zalmay Khalilzad, who is negotiating with the Taliban to bring about peace, and a U.S. withdrawal from America’s longest war. U.S. troops have been fighting in Afghanistan since 2001, in a war that has cost 2,400 American lives. Following the meeting, Trump tweeted, “Many on the opposite sides of this 19 year war, and us, are looking to make a deal — if possible!”

    August 21, 2019 • Robert P. Murphy A recent article in the Guardian trumpeted the findings of a new study published in Science that found massive tree planting would be — by far — the cheapest and most effective approach to mitigating climate change. Ironically, the new thinking shows the pitfalls of political approaches to combating so-called “negative externalities.” The good news about tree planting disrupts the familiar narrative about carbon taxes that even professional economists have been feeding the public for years. The whole episode is an example of what Ronald Coase warned about, in his classic 1960 article showing the danger in the traditional approach of using taxes to fix alleged market failures. Ronald Coase vs. A. C. Pigou on “Externalities” Coase’s “The Problem of Social Cost” is one of the most frequently cited economics articles of all time, but it can be difficult for a newcomer to absorb its lessons. In this revolutionary piece, Coase challenged the standard approach to externalities that had been developed by economist A. C. Pigou.

    08/21/2019 • Chris Calton When Paul Hayes was arrested in Kentucky for writing a fraudulent check, he faced his third felony charge. At the time, Kentucky had a law in effect known as the Habitual Criminal Act, which imposed a life sentence for any third-time felony conviction. The prosecutor in the case, however, was at liberty to decide whether or not to charge Hayes under the Habitual Criminal Act. He offered Hayes a deal: either plead guilty and accept a five-year sentence, or go to trial and risk life in prison. Hayes rolled the dice on a jury trial and lost. But he appealed on the grounds that the wide disparity between the plea deal and the threatened sentence for a jury trial violated his rights to due process. The case went to the Supreme Court, where Hayes lost again. The disparity in charges between plea bargains and trials were irrelevant; as long as the facts fit the case, prosecutors can pursue whatever charges they like. Bordenkircher v. Hayes, as the case is known, reveals a great deal about our criminal justice system. Most importantly, it demonstrates how the legal system enables and encourages unhealthy prosecutorial practices. Incarceration rates have skyrocketed since the 1970s, and that trend has continued even as rates of violent and property crimes have fallen substantially.1 The drug war explains the rise in arrests for non-violent crime, of course, but even drug laws fail to explain prosecutorial trends.

    By Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr. August 20, 2019 Writes Atilla Sulker: “Happy 78th birthday to my dear friend and mentor, Dr. Walter Block! I first began emailing Dr. Block in June of 2018, and met him for the first time at the Mises Institute, in Auburn, Alabama, last year. Since then, Dr. Block has been an inspiration to me, both in the realm of scholarship, and the broad brushstroke of life. His desire to not only stretch, but completely redraw the boundaries instantly caught my attention. Dr. Block comes up with ideas that may seem “crazy” at the superficial level, but upon further examination, they are borderline genius. His methodology in creating ideas is something that I have adopted myself- come up with the craziest ideas, then logically distill them until you have something of substance. Dr. Block continues to produce prolific amounts of literature all the time, all very fascinating to read. Check out his massive archives here!” https://www.lewrockwell.com/political-theatre/happy-a-birthday-dr-walter-block/

    By David Stockman August 21, 2019 You would never know that the GOP won the last presidential election based on what emanates from the vocal chords of the Trumpian inner circle and the keyboard of its top banana. This stuff is just plain politicized economics, statist pretense and Keynesian hogwash. The Donald’s keyboard is bad enough. Still, after a lifetime as a leveraged real estate speculator who apparently skipped Econ 101, why would he know any better? But chief trade advisor, Peter Navarro, who supposedly has credentials, showed this weekend exactly what flavor of statist economics now reigns in the White House: “I can tell you with certainty… we’re going to have a strong economy through 2020 and beyond with a bull market,” he told ABC News in an interview on Sunday morning. “The Fed will be lowering rates. The ECB will be engaging in monetary stimulus. China will be engaging in fiscal stimulus.”

    Last response to you PAF because you have no solutions. All you have is controversy. Create a list of practical, realistic, things that can be done to better our society that do not involve lawsuits, getting fined, or getting arrested. Develop a system to take over congress or senate with a majority of Thomas Massie's and I will join in. Adam Kokesh is a waste of time and money. He is a joke and showman. The baggage he brings does not help. I truly believe his activism is not for love of freedom but for financial motive. He makes bad choices. Did he not surround himself with all these "friends" that screwed him? Trash. Not worthy of support. Alex Jones in it for profit. Aggressive. Won't shut up. But his organization puts out some good news. Too controversial and loud to change anyone that doesn't already agree with him. Thomas Massie outstanding individual. True Patriot. Bet he leaves politics for farm life one day never to return to it. Rush Limbaugh politically astute and way more professional than Alex Jones but only a mouthpiece and obviously in it for the money. Country going down the toilet. Me disobeying laws that will cost me jail time or financial duress only profits the system.

    I am a volunteerist, just like this guy, who explains everything in detail where Ron and Walter Block have not taken the time to do so. I am pretty confident that any change in policy that Ron and Walter would advocate would encompass what is contained in the video. It is an extremely tough pill for people filled with nothing but hate, but so is standing for each and every Bill of Right among those who do not care about them. I do pick my battles very wisely, which is why I stay out of trouble and still effective at the same time. Libertarian is a philosophy, Agorist is the practical approach to applying Libertarianism on a day to day basis.

    Do you have a Drivers License? I understand your points and agree. Did you see my posts in regards to licenses and permits and responsibility? However, if you do burn without a permit and cause damage you had an illegal burn. If you have the permit you dotted your i. If you have nothing to lose then go for it. If you have much to lose the permit is insignificant and worth getting to avoid issues later. Need to pick your battles. You advocate to let illegals come here and get hired for free market wage. That will never work in the system we have because all they have to do is complain they are treated unfairly or cause damage or???? and you are liable. Drive your vehicle with no plates. Take them off. Drop your registration. That seems pretty simple and you can argue you have a constitutional right to travel. What is the difference between your burn permit and your vehicle registration and drivers license? Honestly IMHO a preacher makes his living off of selling God. As much as I like Ron Paul, he made his fortune off of selling his political input and his newsletters. I agree with him but he has had little to no effect on changing laws or policies. Disobeying mandated established law is idiotic for a person that would have more to lose than gain. I looked up your buddy Adam Kokesh yesterday. Worth 10 million and paid his girlfriend $40 per week via contract to be his slave. Don't really care what the deal is with that but that is what is being purported. Adam makes his living off of selling liberty crap. He profits from getting arrested. He thrives on the attention. Some consider him a psychopath. What does Ron advocate? He might encourage you to do what you think is right and to take a liberty stance. He might even speak out on your behalf. I bet Ron would not spend one day in jail disobeying an established law. He would rather get paid to talk about it. There are people that believe the earth is flat. Do they really believe that or is that only what they sell? Is the grungy person with a sign really homeless and poor or do they panhandle because it is extremely lucrative?

    “Permits” do not ensure that people burn safely - personal responsibility does that. “Permits” do not pay the damage if smoke enters your next door neighbors house - you/insurance does that. If the “permit” is to only burn logs on Saturday but the bonfire for the kids birthday is on Sunday, why did my relative deserve to be fined by the government when no damage has occurred? Do you support gun permits, perhaps for open carry, since the fire-arm is exposed? Do you support the NRA, or the GOA? Great video, btw. When I told Ron about the burn permit thing, he got a pretty good chuckle out of it. Not that I was asking permission, because I wasn’t ;-)

    Depends on where you live. If you are in a wet humid climate on a 3 acre island then maybe not an issue. If a person with something to lose were to start a controlled fire in a dry area that is prone to forest and wild fires, they would be wise to think twice before striking the match without the proper paperwork. A person could lose everything if a huge fire started by their negligence. Fire is nothing to mess around with. My guess is if Ron has acreage in a dry area and fire permits are required to burn, he would get the permit or hire someone to do the burn and make sure they do it responsibly. I would also think if a fire ban is in place because the area has not seen rain for 45 days and is extremely dry he would not start a fire. I do not know what kind of fire you speak of or your situation. Blatantly driving an unregistered automobile with the defense that you are free to travel is idiotic. Starting a fire to burn off some weeds in the height of a drought is idiotic. Building a fire to cook a varmint you trapped while stranded and lost in the forest is justifiable. Driving a person to the hospital without a license or registered vehicle that is having a heart attack when you have no phone is justifiable. I do not think Ron would start a fire without a permit. Ron has no need to do so. Ron would probably warn a child of the dangers of fire and how easily it gets out of control and the repercussions and liability from the law if you start a fire that gets out of control.

    What I find very disappointing and completely repulsive is the fact that many of us agree on most issues, but one single issue where I disagree, and advocate Private Property Rights and alternative fiscally responsible solutions, has a handful of members spew complete and utter hatred and Negative Reps every post that I make. Is that what Ron Paul, or you for that matter would promote, in order to achieve peace through prosperity, and bringing people together?

    Hmm, quite the dilemma, isn’t it. I guess restrictionism, which many here advocate and Ron Paul objects to, is the logical way to go then. I see your point, and finally beginning to come around. I am therefore also becoming a war advocate, because that sleazy democrat Dennis Kucinich is opposed to it. Does anybody on this revamped RPF support Free Market principles anymore? Since around 2012, give/take, this place did a complete 180, evident by many of the originals no longer participate anymore. Rod Serling, are you lurking?

    Prof. Ben Powell addresses most, if not all issues regarding immigration that have been raised on RonPaulForums. If you are in fact an advocate of Freedom, Liberty and Fiscal Responsibility, Ben Powell knocks it out of the park. Prof. Ben Powell debunks the following three popular myths about immigration: 1) Immigrants are a net drag on our economy 2) Immigrants steal our jobs 3) Immigrants depress our wages Additionally, Professor Ben Powell examines how immigration is related to Foreign Aid, Prosperity, Property Rights, Crime, Welfare, Voting, Citizenship, and more.
