    With all due respect, I'd as soon see this subject dropped. Rand Paul is trying to maintain a reputation for honesty, and he promised to endorse the nominee. So I feel strongly that he ought to be allowed to keep a low profile on this thing. I think a promised endorsement along the lines of, 'I endorse the collective will of the good Americans who belong to the Grand Old Republican Party!' would speak volumes, without breaking vows. It would be subtle, and it would be classy, and it would make the situation clear enough.

    In 2008, Ron Paul endorsed a third party candidate. He just didn't specify which one. I don't think we should repeat that. I think we need to try to unify the Anyone But Them vote and make it count--in one column, not watered down. That will require some negotiation before the best ticket can be determined.

    So what would it take to get some unity in this camp, so we stand a snowball's chance of selling it to Bernie's Anyone But That Bitch crowd? Suppose the LP and the CP put forth a coalition ticket? Is this guy better than Gary Johnson? Which one should get the top of the ticket?

    And whoever trolls him in the future won't troll him about the way he wasted his contributors' money on a useless campaign, they way they did his father. Say what you want about an educational campaign, Rand Paul promised not to run one. And he was out the moment the handwriting hit the wall.

    New Yorkers use an old, elevated Forney track to squeeze in a nice park and every photojournalist on the PBS payroll comes running. These people pick a beautiful spot and run a Forney through it, and railfans will have to put it on YouTube. No wonder it gets such lousy ratings. They only show trains the two weeks they're begging for money.

    That is a mystery, isn't it? Near as I can tell, that reference is to Ron Paul saying nice things about Martin Luther King, Jr. I could be wrong, but as long as it remains a vague aspersion instead of a hard allegation, I guess mine is as good a working theory as any...

    What isn't a very 'Libertarian way to think'? It isn't a 'Libertarian way to think' to advocate voting Libertarian? I beg to differ. Or are you saying it isn't a very libertarian way to think? What isn't a very libertarian way to think? It isn't a very libertarian way to think to say that people spreading their votes thin over a dozen different parties will dissipate the power of those votes? If not, then libertarianism is fated to always lose elections, because it's a very realistic way to think. And it has nothing to do with whether you and I agree on anything. And when you begin the sentence with 'Because...' what are you referring to? Splitting our votes is sarcastically a 'heck of an idea' because you don't like the LP? And...? So why don't you convince me your third party of choice is better, so we can coalesce around that? If you think coalescing and consolidating our votes is a bad idea, why don't you explain why? Or did you take that statement as a--a what, exactly? A personal attack? Or did you take my 'Let's spread our power out...' as a serious suggestion? Even if you did, why are you blaming that--or me--if you don't like it? You are the one who rejected my suggestion that we focus on the LP without proposing an alternative, after all. In short, what, if anything, are you saying? And now we return to your regularly scheduled assertion that Rand Paul is solely responsible for all our woes, and that the Establishment making a lightning rod of Trump by promoting him 24/7/365 with a gazillion hours of programming and a gazillion watts of broadcast power had nothing to do with it:

    Great. Let's split our vote as widely as we can. None of them will win even if we concentrate ourselves and our votes on one of them, but at least that party will have some momentum and some matching funds and some name recognition. But let's not do that. Let's spread our power out as thin as we can because gay wedding cakes and a thousand other things that are back burner issues at best in the face of diminishing liberties and the rising police state and endless imperialistic war. Heck of an idea. Absolutely. And we did begin that process. But is it a twenty year process when you're swimming against the current? I'm not convinced the GOP is the correct venue for this. And I'm sure that a great many people, who have gotten involved and gotten incredibly frustrated, would agree with me. By nominating Trump, some five percent of the American population (although the credit probably actually belongs to the mainstream media propaganda machine) has given us the best opportunity we've had to bury the GOP in a shallow grave right next to the bones of the Whig Party. I can't think of a better thing to focus on this summer.

    Strategic thinking about the future does not involve refusing to build the LP's momentum and refusing to secure them ballot access and matching funds because the best candidate they can come up with advocates one or two things you hate. Especially if that candidate is unlikely to win anyway. The liberty movement is not in any imminent danger of dying. And if it does, no one is going to carve Johnson's picture on its tombstone. That's what would fall under the heading of 'unrealistic emotional fantasy', and it's not going to stop any serious liberty advocate from doing his or her damnedest to help the LP break new ground. Strategic thinking about the future is something other than daydreaming about the death of the liberty movement and working toward an honorable end to it. Unless you're a neocon. For those who actually care about liberty, strategic thinking about the future involves finding ways around the silly-assed wedges that the powers that be use to divide us one against another, and concentrating on building coalitions which can concentrate on things that are actually important to more than three dozen evangelist bakers. I have no doubt that the Establishment infiltrators will double down on their campaign to encourage us to apply our purity tests to everyone in the country, and chase everyone out of our big tent until there are only three people left in it. But it won't work. Less than five percent of the population has, by stealing this nomination, handed us a golden opportunity on a silver platter. By focusing on something that affects less than a hundred small businessmen--by focusing on anything that is a back burner issue at best, and possibly not an issue at all--when we need to be focusing on horrific wars, police state massacres, massive violations of the Constitution, the deliberate trashing of the economy, the loss of opportunity brought on by laws that prevent small businesses from competing with corporations, and a thousand important things, we snatch defeat from the jaws of the greatest opportunity for victory to come our way in at least half a century.

    The foundation has to be built first. Beyond that, the design has to remain fluid, if the building is to be built around the obstructions that keep magically appearing. If the powers that be would rather destroy the GOP than let us have it, fine. We don't need it. We just need it out of our way. Stooges will be in the RNC even unto the day that the three members of the RNC are the last three Republicans left in the country. We have an opportunity this cycle to catapult the Libertarian Party into a position to rival the GOP. That opportunity is right now, this summer, and can be done long before next year's GOP precinct meetings. So, that is what we should be focused on now.

    Can they? Or will the teleprompter suspend the vote? The last time a convention actually voted on a VP pick was, ironically enough, 1984, when that vote went to, ironically enough, an ex head of the CIA named George H.W. Bush.

    That's an interesting bit of sophistry. I don't buy it. Obama decided to appoint Vilsack as Secretary of Agriculture, but I don't see how any rational person can argue with a straight face that the executives of Monsanto didn't support that decision--or that their campaign contributions didn't have something to do with the decision being made. I also don't buy the idea that someone who consistently speaks in favor of things that are wrong should be trusted because he only spoke in favor of them, but didn't actually cause them to happen. One must assume that, if he only speaks in favor of what is wrong, he stands a pretty good chance of doing what is wrong if given the opportunity. And replacing the RNC is not something that the American people have the power to do. Replacing the GOP, on the other hand, the American people can do. Just as the American people replaced the Whig Party.

    Well, if he were to piss of his supporters (which are just about the most blindly partisan five percent of the American population) by picking someone from the Enemy Team, that would certainly settle the question of whether or not he is in this to throw it to Clinton.

    Oh, I don't know. I think to find the person who deserves his title the most, you have to find the person who hates Trump and the five percent of the population who foisted that practical joke on this nation much more than he or she hates Hillary Clinton and the five percent of the population who foisted that on this nation. Which lets me out of the running. I hate them all just the same. If you hold your breath waiting for that to happen, you're going to be more than 33% blue.

    Not this time. This time about ten percent of the population nominated the two most evil characters in the nation, and they are daring us to pick which one is the lesser evil. Neither one is a lesser evil. Anyone who feels that they are the only two choices in this, because approximately ten percent of the population says so, is a damned fool. And no amount of repetition of this falsehood is ever going to convince the people here that they are.

    Why blame Cruz? The media gave Trump a gazillion dollars' worth of free publicity and the dumbest ten percent of the registered Republicans voted, as they always do, for the name they heard the most, their knees jerking in a reflexive manner the whole time. What did Cruz have to do with that? If the normal majority of Republicans wanted to avoid this entirely predictable outcome, they'd have done their research months ago, found that Rand Paul did best in hypothetical matchup polls against any Democrat, and they would have voted for him even if the mainstream media never once mentioned his name--and the dumbest ten percent of registered Republicans would have been handily outvoted. Or they would have voted on principle--in which case they would have nominated Rand Paul and the most unprincipled ten percent of the party could not have stopped them. It does the normal majority of Republicans no good to scapegoat Cruz now that they have failed to do this sensible thing. All they can do by trying to scapegoat him is reveal what damned fools they are to have gotten themselves in a spot where they were depending on Ted freaking Cruz to save them from anything at all. No warm eulogy for Cruz, indeed. The real news this morning is that there will be no warm eulogy for the Republican Party. Its tombstone will say, 'They Reaped What They Sowed'.

    The Trump crowd has been totally focused on themselves and the alpha they cuck for since the beginning. It has been a juvenile temper tantrum all along, and nobody could have made anything else of it. Nobody invited any Trump fanbois here to try to talk us into cucking your clown. And if none had, Trump fanbois still wouldn't have been accomplishing anything useful. LOL Cucking for a fascist is the way to help the communists 'seed the next generation'. As for the gains we have made, we have only just begun to make hay. The fascists had to strip the last pretense of conservative veneer from the ghost of the GOP before the sun could shine for us. Watch what we do now that people are getting their noses rubbed in the fact that both 'liberals' and 'conservatives' have a common enemy.

    Do you honestly think people want either of these criminal clowns? And did you really just say, 'Every woman secretly wants...' on a site which is fundamentally and vehemently opposed to collectivism? 'All the votes' so far means less than six percent of the total population of those states he won. Give the numbers and honest crunching and weep. Never has this nation been so thoroughly screwed by the most moronic tiny little sliver of its population. Teh Donald is facing another criminal, another clown, a bosom buddy and the person he did all this for--he is in it to throw this to Clinton and now the GOP cannot possibly beat her. Of course he's up against a candidate just like him. The only difference is she is not perceived as an inexperienced idiot.

    Now substitute the Powers that Be and their lapdog propaganda machine media for "the GOP" and you'll find it makes perfect sense--if you're intellectually honest about it. Of course, the Powers that Be would much rather sacrifice the GOP than see it return to its principles, because the GOP's principles are anti-totalitarian, and the current Powers that Be are completely totalitarian. The so-called GOPe is nothing but a roomful of stooges. Now they have sacrificed the GOP, and I say good riddance. Rebuild the GOP? Raze it to the foundation and replace it with something real, I say.

    You're absolutely right that there has been no room for principle, competence or sanity in this divide and conquer media climate. But you're absolutely wrong about the six percent of the population who foisted this practical joke on us being anything like the largest group of voters in this nation.
