    As I said, there is blame on both sides. Anyone with 3 brain cells would know that Rand had to endorse the nominee and he had already promised to do so. The grassroots should have pulled their heads out of their asses to understand this. The other side of the coin is that Rand did such a piss poor job in the way of which he made the endorsement and completely failed in communicating with the grassroots that it's no wonder they left the reservation. As I said, plenty of blame to go around.

    Pointing out reality isn't a downer. All IMO... for some people, you can't complete. Most others aren't going to turn on a dime, it can nominally take around six months or more for someone to go from getting a seed of liberty and turning it into a new world outlook. Within that six months there is a lot of person reflection, withdraw from past ties, leaning new things and then starting to articulate new views. One key is to recognize when you are just planning seeds that you need to accept that you are doing just that, don't expect the quick change. Otherwise, there are a lot of do's and don'ts to this; another major topic. These things are doable for most people, and it's the people that are important, the vessel comes after that. While working towards it, I understand the scope of the problem, so it's in mind. The key however, is that it has to be planned for, and it's why we need better plans. The Liberty Blueprint is just the first layer of plans.

    Yeah.., if you have a mobile device w/ an installed wallet. Outside of that, you need Coinbase via your computer. No mobile device, no worky on the ATM. You're on better footing with this model; just do what you always do to deposit but just do something different and deal it accordingly on CB.

    Yes, because your post (below) is like wizards, better reflects a knee jerk response to the title of "states rights" while completely ignoring the actual questions. When you read the questions it clear to see that soapboxing that the fed can do whatever they want (as you did) completely misses the point of the thread in that this is a case of states rights gone rouge, and states doing whatever they want, regardless of the federally supported rights of the people. So here, the fed stepping in and would actually be a good thing, as they would be protecting the people from a rouge state. The knee jerk response of states no longer have rights and the fed can do whatever they want isn't the issue at all, and I certainly have no idea what the picking up a gun as a political act has to do with any of this as you included. "The Feds claim the right and authority to over rule just about anything a state or states want to do. It appears they have enough firepower to back up that claim. "The last move in politics is always to pick up the gun." -- R. Buckminster Fuller"

    There are a few options, one is the courts. File a legal challenge. This would be pretty expensive so you'd want some institutional backing. I found this page, could be of interest to look at: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Firearm_case_law_in_the_United_States Another option is legislative, basically get legislation drafted up, gain support, and push it through to become law. You'd want a good common sense bill so legislators will look bad to not support it. If they don't you work to expose them. Worst case, you get people to run against them. There are some established techniques to make this happen by applying pain to legislators. Obviously none of this is easy or cheap. I'm not a lawyer but -- state legislators can pass whatever law they want; more or less; the laws however can be challenged in a court which can strike them down.

    You have to read between the lines. I know what Rand was up to, and I know what he really believes. I also know that he lost many people in the grassroots over things like this because he was playing at a much higher level than many in the grassroots could understand. And he completely failed in keeping them on board by communicating to them what he was up to. And then there were some who refused to give him an opportunity. There is plenty of blame on both sides. But no, Rand is not an interventionist.

    That was a strategic move to get lawmakers on the record voting against cutting foreign aid without being able to whine about cutting defense spending. Rand doesn't really want to increase spending anywhere. Remember, this is chess, not checkers.

    That's not the issue at all, you said "as opposed to giving aid and comfort to Hillary Clinton" as if this is a binary option, it is not and calling you out for framing this as a binary option does not equate to being threatened. It is understood that there may be "dozen data points where they are the same or similar to Ron/Rand on issues" and it could be argued that the GOP nominee may end up being better than the Democrat nominee but that doesn't mean that they have earned support, much less should enjoy having ones good name put behind the candidate. Some may think it's the best things, other will degree. I can very much respect people who have high standards of who they will put their name behind.

    Rand is not trying to increase the military budget, and in fact he wants to audit the Pentagon. He also does not want to intervene anywhere.

    Okay just anti "undesireable" immigrant. Close enough to the same thing. I don't think someone is anti immigrant just because their oppose illegal immigration, but Trumps rhetoric is way over the top. I will agree immigration policy needs to be reformed but a wall or a ban list of people based on their religion is just nuts.

    I was just describing a similar system that was put together using similar concepts. Our straw poll system was pretty basic but it was just as fair execpt it was designed to allow people to buy votes, which was the point of the fund raiser. Otherwise the blockchain system presented lacks security as they do not describe a closed loop system to manage ballot stuffing. One could be added. The list of voters who received a key needs to be published, as does the keys that were not used. In this way people can validate that their unused vote was not cast for someone else. You can also flush out names of non voters. Without this the people who control the keys can add votes, thus weaking others. Ballot stuffing. As described you can validate your vote but have no way to know if it was weighed properly.

    While as a site we do not support Trump, we understand some of our members do and we are open to dialog on specific issues that focus on the issues. Starting a thread that insults other members, degrading a supported candidate framed around support for a candidate we are not in favor of, from a news person that isn't seen to have strong credibility will only serve to annoy members and cause problems. I hope it is understandable why this is being closed. Just be a little more careful in the future. We're not trying to kill discussion. Thanks.

    The block chain voting is a good topic, but going too much down a different rabbit hole vs the original topic, so splitting off. A few issues here. . You might need a better way to resolve candidates with the same name and similar looks if anyone can submit ballot access. Spammers would have a field day. There is some value to a private voting booth, it can prwvent your employer or others from pressuring your vote. This block chain could allow for votes to be solid, and massed in large numbers.

    ??? Is he addressing people that are totally opposed to Trump (per title) or the GOP establishment (per article)? If this is to the GOPe, I doubt they'd care to read. How does he know the demographics of other writers? What's the point in bring this up? Is he not making an argument of might over right? Not that either of these two factions are right... Does this statement not implies that 35 year olds will be out of the picture, dead or have lost interest in money and power by the age of 45? Any one see that happening? If your plan is to wait for people 35 years old to move out of the way I think you'll be waiting for at least 35 years, if not longer. Sounds like a bad plan and wishful thinking that the controls of power will be all but handed to you in 10 years.

    Recent political events have brought up questions as to how the political parties determine their party nominee for president. Ron Paul supporters ran into a lot of issues in 2008 and again in 2012. Here again, in 2016, more people are crying “foul”. All of this begs the question, what are the issues with the process and what specifically should be changed? Here are the issues that I see being brought up: • Does party leadership have too strong of an influence over the outcome of the delegate process, in part by manipulating rules and leveraging their pre-existing position? • Caucus systems aren’t desired by some people; they just want a primary vote to decide everything. You shouldn’t have to be a master at parliamentary procedures and have the party rule book memorized to have your voice heard. Is it reasonable to reform this overall structure? • Is it fair to have super delegates as part of the process? So what would the perfect liberty movement party nomination system look like? (Not that we’ll agree).

    Just saw your message asking if anyone would be willing to be an unbound delegate. I wish I could volunteer for this, but I see the deadline has passed. Unfortunately, back in April when you posted the message, I wasn't that active in the Ron Paul revolution. Tonight I got his campaign update email indicating that he will probably have just over 20% of the delegates, which "is not enough to win the nomination." I was really hoping Ron Paul would win somehow. I'm so disappointed tonight.

Anybody experienced at writing business plans for funding?

I PM'd you back when you brought this up in S&T. Never heard back.

I see you are 30 min out from Raleigh and probably a bit further for Durham, because of the roads.
Consider consulting. I see Aerotek has an office in Raleigh and they have always been good to me. Try them.
