    I think this is a highly improbable "edge case" scenario. But it's not impossible - and it's certainly interesting. In any case, if you read the article, you'll probably learn some finer details about the electoral process for POTUS/VPOTUS that you didn't already know ... (I did, anyway ...)

    Regarding the statements made at the end of the article (specifically, the ones to which I have added bold emphasis): unless and until we start "tak advantage of the value" (by "bring any of this material back and using it for industry," for example), humanity is never going to establish any kind of enduring presence in space. All the talk about permanent bases on the Moon or manned missions to Mars is just talk. Even if we do those things, it won't last unless and until we start getting more economic value out of it than we put into it. (That's why the Apollo program didn't result in anything lasting - once the political purpose of beating the commies to the Moon had been served, there was no longer any incentive to continue doing it.) Mining the asteroids is certainly not yet within our capabilities. But sooner or later, it (and other such activities) is going to have to be done. Otherwise, the idea of humanity traveling beyond the confines of Earth on anything other than temporary excursions will never be more than a pleasant pipe-dream and the subject of science fiction stories ...

    Still don't understand why anybody responds to paid troll enhanced_deficit threads, in good faith. He thinks Ron Paul forums is full of anti-gay social conservatives and pro-war neocons and that we will welcome the material that he copy and pastes from other forums that he trolls.

    Honestly, I don't get all the hate Alex Jones gets. I'm not his biggest fan either but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't introduced to Ron Paul by watching "From Freedom to Fascism" over 13 years ago, where Ron made his big debut to greater America sitting behind his "don't steal, the government hates competition" sign. Ron Paul got his initial base from Alex Jones. All of us should be grateful the platform that Alex Jones gave Ron Paul, and the undying loyalty he has given to Ron all these years. No matter how much you guys might want to think literally everything is controlled opposition, people like Joe Rogan are needed, badly. The left has literal superstars, the right has their own stars, who is helping to push some of the things we talk about into the mainstream? Gay Peter Thiel who got kicked out of Silicon Valley? I've learned many years ago to stop looking for perfection from the libertarian ideological ivory tower of morality.

    There are problems with the GOP but these are not it. Sending the first man to mars and moon base IS the SpaceX project, they're promoting SpaceX's success. Elon Musk talks about these two goals all the time, the GOP is riding the coattails of his ambitions. You also must've never done any research on the FCC Chairman before making this thread.

    Rogan plays dumb to soften up the normies. Is he right on all the issues? no. Do we know his true positions on everything? no If he went all in on all of your favorite conspiracies, he wouldn't have the biggest podcast on the planet, he'd be relegated into the dark corners of the internet. oh god, now comedy is controlled opposition. Where does it end for you? How do you enjoy anything?

    Apparently, it was just a "glitch" ... According to Rogan: https://www.instagram.com/p/CG6XR5Yllo5/ The conspiracy about the show with the conspiracy theorist ... The episode that was uploaded to Spotify had some cache issues, and it wasn’t working correctly on some devices so the engineers had Jamie re-upload it with the same date, thinking it would fix the problem but still play for everyone like it was never missing. Didn’t quite work out perfect, which led to my phone getting hit up by people thinking it was removed. It works for me now, but some folks are still having trouble seeing it. They’re working on it. It IS however fucking classic and amazing that this glitch only shows up in the Alex Jones episode.

    I oppose the death penalty, but it is not forbidden under the NAP or libertarian theory. So depending on what one means by "justified," that can be parsed as "justified" or "unjustified" - or even as "not unjustified" if, contra Orwell, one is willing to permit the "not un-" construction (and/or if one is willing to consider the distinction as not being logically binary).

    lmaooo yes everyone is controlled opposition. Jesus Christ. Was Joe Rogan controlled opposition when he endorsed Ron Paul on the Jay Leno show? ffs... And if you have to ask if that COMEDIAN wearing Free Ghislane t-shirt on the show is for real or not, then it really degrades the credibility in calling everything controlled opposition.

    I believe for NC and PA there are caveats to their opinions. If in fact the amount of votes that came after polls close, move the margin between winner/loser, then they will toss the ballots. Basically anybody that has their ballots received after election day (perpetually late and ballot harvesting) will only be counted as participation votes. Pretty good troll on the "everybody wins" oh-so-tolerant-left.

    That may well be - but at the same time, it's also likely that Spotify is not contractually obligated to publish anything and everything that Rogan produces. Is Spotify actually distributing this one, or is Rogan doing it himself via his own YouTube channel? If it's the former, then that's a sign that Spotify may have put down the mutiny by the SJW control freaks among its ranks. But if it's the latter ... (And have they started including the other previous episodes - the ones featuring Jones and others - that Spotify originally omitted from their lineup of Rogan's old shows?)

    I think you're confusing "Austrian economics" with "libertarianism" or "laissez faire capitalism" - but strictly speaking, Austrian economics is neither of those things. In fact, "Austrian economics" is just ... economics ... (and human nature, as embodied in the "action axiom," is an inherent, and indeed, foundational, part of economics ...) Also, unlike communism and socialist economics, Austrian economics is not normative. It does not seek any particular outcome, such as a dictatorship of the proletariat or state ownership of all capital property (i.e., "the means of production"). Rather, it merely attempts to identify the laws and propositions by which economic outcomes, whatever they might be, are produced - as, for example, the Law of Demand dictates that if there is a minimum wage then (all else being equal) higher unemployment will result. But Austrian economics makes no policy prescriptions. An Austrian economist could favor a government-mandated minimum wage. He would have to acknowledge that this would, ceteris paribus, increase unemployment - but if he is willing to accept that trade-off (for whatever reasons), then he can still be fully "Austrian." Of course, most Austrians are libertarians who would oppose things like a minimum wage - but strictly speaking, that is because they are libertarians, not because they are Austrians.

    Successfully forecasting particular market outcomes and sussing out the general laws that govern all economies are no more the same thing than winning at the craps table and deriving the laws of mathematical probability are the same thing. In both cases, success at the former does not imply success at the latter, and vice versa. Just as mathematics is the working out of the necessary consequences of the abstractions of quantity and dimension, economics is the working out of the necessary consequences of the abstraction of human action. As such, Austrian economics (including ABC) comports fully with reality - just as does mathematics - and when done correctly, it cannot possibly be otherwise. Name one school of economic thought for which the same sorts of things cannot be said of any of its wannabe swamis/gurus, or any of the forecasts ever attempted by them. (IOW: Name for me any school of economics whose crystal-ball gazers are never mistaken ...) The purpose of economic science is not to tell us what stocks to buy, how many to buy, when to buy them, or how long to hold on to them.
