    Here's a good article by Chris Hedges about how badly the DNC elites don't want Bernie. We all can't stand the Progressive left anymore than we can stand the DNC, but the comparisons to our 2008 Libertarian grassroots Ron Paul base and Bernie's are very similar. People on the real left in this country see the DNC and most Democrats as too far right...if you can believe that.

    I think Bloomtard is the silver bullet. It really should concern Bernie lovers what shenanigans are getting ready to happen with this guy. I could seriously see him getting the nomination.

    You can defend the incorporation doctrine. That is a valid argument to make. I disagree with it, but it is perfectly reasonable. However, let us not pretend like incorporation is something that it is not. The concept is the complete opposite of the Founder's intentions that gained traction in the Supreme Court during the progressive era. The objective of the progressive was two-fold. The first objective was to centralize and concentrate power within the general government. Their second goal was to try and eliminate as much State sovereignty as possible. State sovereignty is seen as undemocratic and backwards. But this is nothing new and we saw these arguments during the ratification debates.

    What are we doing to make our choices better? You can't be active during election years, get stomped, and then go hide in the exclusive libertarian treehouse club until it's election year again. It doesn't seem to be an effective strategy.

    @TheTexan https://www.yahoo.com/news/large-majority-nonvoters-plan-cast-050200321.html Nearly three-quarters of habitual nonvoters plan to cast ballots in the November election, according to a first-of-its-kind poll on this bloc released Wednesday by the Knight Foundation. The report, titled "The 100 Million Project: The Untold Story of American Nonvoters," surveyed 12,000 persistent nonvoters nationwide and aimed to understand the characteristics of nonvoters, why they are disengaged from the political process and the effect this group could have on the coming election if they turn out at the polls. The study defined chronic nonvoters as those who aren't registered or had voted only once in the last six national elections. More than 100 million eligible American voters don't vote, according to the study, which noted that in the 2016 election, 41.3 percent of qualified voters didn't cast ballots. Hillary Clinton won 3 million more voters than Donald Trump but lost the Electoral College.

    As to the media for those of us here in 2008 and 2012, Ron and his supporters called it out, there was all kinds of "fake news" directed at him. But the general public paid no attention, this time however everybody that doesn't have TDS can see the media spin BS daily and maybe they always did, but with phone camera's, and drones, and the internet that has sleuths on Reddit and 4Chan it gets exposed very quick. Trump did that, not Ron, because he was just too nice. The supreme court is where all these 50/50 polices are going, THAT is more important than anything else in America, and that is why many former Ron Paul supporters reluctantly vote for Trump. The next DNC President without a court to stop them will wipe out all the liberties this forum holds dear. The supreme court is the only thing stopping a complete revaluation and definition of the 2nd and the end of gun rights in America. And for those spouting off about the morality, think about this, 4 more years of Trump means we actually have a shot at slowing down the genocide of the unwanted unborn millions of aborted innocent babies, when he get more conservative judges on board stop the slaughter of the innocents. This is the biggest travesty of morality currently. http://www.numberofabortions.com/

    First of all, Donald Trump is nowhere near the same type of man as Samson. I'm not going to lay out my theological arguments as to why that's the case, here, because I want to get to a more important point. Last of all, your post didn't answer my question at all. I asked for Scriptural basis to support the idea that it's righteous (or moral) to vote for the lesser of two evils (or least of possible goods). You're a man of God, and I know you know the Scriptures, Swordsmyth. So please explain to me where in God's holy, inspired word He teaches that it's okay to have a voting ethic of choosing the lesser of two evils. I'm not looking for Biblical comparisons of Donald Trump to judges, prophets, nor apostles, which even to do so is insulting to those great men of the Faith, anyway.

Hard to really get a feel for what/how things are going when news come from China, CNN, or the CIA - unless one is an insider. I don't know how seriously this situation should be taken. Yea, I hear you. I put "ex-cia" in quotes and mentioned taking it with grain of salt in my OP.

    Basically. Unless the people in that State amend the Constitution to say otherwise. You have to understand that the Founders viewed the colonies as individual sovereign countries. In fact, the Continental Congress requested that each colony declare their own independence from England separate from the Declaration of Independence. So when it was time to craft the Constitution, retaining State sovereignty was critical to its ratification. A large segment of the population thought that the Constitution proper would destroy that sovereignty. Despite promises of the contrary, the resistors (known as Anti-Federalists) won the argument for including the Bill of Rights. These Amendments were included to restrain and abridge the powers of the general government only. However, Madison introduced the concept that the Bill of Rights should apply to the States, but that idea was rejected. The Constitution WITH the Bill of Rights was ratified by a hair. Historians have shown that it was due to political maneuvering by the Federalists that the Constitution ended up ratified. It was not necessarily due to popular support. Again, the sentiment was that States would lose their sovereignty and ability to govern themselves as they largely did as colonies.

    Applying the Bill of Rights to the States means that federalism is lost and the general government grows more powerful than the individual States. That is a progressive idea.

    Trump just granted clemency to one of the most crooked politicians in the history of Illinois, and you have the audacity to actually type with the same fingers that you fold in prayers to our God that Trump is a "possible good"? Can you not see how inconsistent you are, Swordsmyth? For all the death, theft, and debt that our country has been involved in, yes, I'll demand "perfection" instead of "lesser evils" or "least of possible good." There's too much at stake to be compromising our values and standards at this point. Just look at the type of people who continue to occupy the Oval Office, and observe what our chambers of Congress have become. Our children ought to be ashamed of us for the world we're leaving to them.

    The ballot box is not the only container we need to advance in the right direction. (By the way, you need to make sure you have the right definition of what is "the right direction" before you start moving, but that's another topic.). Besides voting, we also need the soap box, the prayer box, the coin box, and the ammo box. Those are the alternatives we have to work with when there are no candidates worthy of supporting. Yes, we need to make sacrifices, alliances, etc., and who says that libertarians haven't done that? But choosing not to "vote for the lesser of two evils" has nothing to do with being brainwashed by establishment elites and Socialists. On the contrary, it's those of you who continue to "vote for the lesser of two evils" that have fallen in step with the establishment elites and Socialists because they know they can promote whomever they want, and just as long as that candidate says a percentage of the things which tickle the ears of certain voting blocs, those elites/Socialists know they can remain in power, at the expense of your "ballot box tithe." That's what you call "voter suppression." So don't blame libertarians or "purists" for the political shifts every election cycle; that's on those of you who vote in fear and not in principle.

    Voting for "the lesser of two evils" is why our country never makes any progress. Generation after generation, people compromise on the axioms and principles which uphold a free republic, all for the sake of "doing something." The fact that you believe Trump is "moving things in the right direction" illustrates the delusion which is characteristic of those who continue to "vote for the lesser of two evils" instead of voting for what's objectively good. Under Trump, we still have slaughter of the unborn, inflation of our money supply, continue occupation of foreign lands, violations of the Constitution by the executive branch, incremental sieges of the right to own whatever we want to defend ourselves, and the list goes on. You're so busy looking at treatments of symptoms that you've completely ignored root causes, and because of that, people like you will never make any progress. So I'm not "holier than thou"; I'm just digging deeper than you are to undermine ideas that keep us in debt, in confusion and turmoil, and most of all, keep us with blood on our hands.

    I just started looking at the Constitution Party platform since you recommended it awhile back. There are some good things in it, but there are also some concessions to statism that I think are dangerous despite the fact that I'm moving away from strict anarcho-capitalist libertarianism. They support regulation of "obscenity", which isn't really defined, they support some drug restrictions, and they are careful to show their respect for agents of our currently illegitimate state (veterans), as well as condemning attempts to cut their benefits despite the fact that they are paid out of our pockets and for participating in unjust wars for an unjust system.

    The Constitution Party isn't all bad, and I might support some of their candidates, but I don't think there is any party I can support on principle (LP is pro-choice so not an option) I respect strict theonomy even though I'm not sure I agree with it yet. I don't think anybody believes what I'm starting to believe these days.

    OK, so my question is, with relations to Galatians, how is it that you can call Roman Catholics on this board "brothers" even though they add works to the gospel just like the Judaizers did? How is adding baptism as a requirement in order to be saved any different than adding circumcision as a requirement?
