    Yes. Or, at least, I'm sure he sincerely believes so. But if drafted, will he not run? I think the theory should be tested.

    In short, regardless of what Trump has actually said (or not said), people feel more comfortable being racist in an open, proud way than I've seen before. It's also an extension of decades of fighting racism by pointing the finger at other races, which is a bit like bombing to promote peace. It's not an encouraging trend to me. It's not Trump's fault, either. It's the inevitable result of what's been going on over the years coupled with a perceived positive connotation to "telling it like it is" on one side and becoming part of a "movement" on the other end of the spectrum. Then you have others saying the way to fight all of this is to make safe spaces and avoid certain pronouns, and to impose tolerance on the rest of the nation at whatever cost --- in dollars and dignity. God help us all.

    Hate to say it, but the LP ought to draft Ron Paul. He has name recognition, relevant experience, and proven integrity. With all of that, the Libertarian Party could do well. As in unprecedented, extraordinarily, magnum opus well. 2016 is just shaping up to be that kind of year. All that is needed is for the party to get the attention it deserves. And Ron Paul could accomplish that like no other.

    Are they aware that Trump is a non-spanker?

    You missed the point. The point is, if you help people discover that the right to build your life is stolen and we have already given our lives up to the machine, despite the tons of propaganda designed to obscure that, then you can do something about it sooner, and you have more help when you do. More importantly, you have had a chance before that moment to teach people what they are fighting for. Which is important, because if you don't you wind up watching everyone fighting to get something even worse.

    All this hamster wheel talk is a cute analogy but does it mean anything? The bulk of Americans will believe the system is fried when they finally decide to turn to a genuine anti-Establishment candidate and their will is denied. So, the way to that end is to work toward a consensus that we need to elect someone completely not approved by the media. Once we elect that candidate but the powers that be tell us to our faces that we did not, it's on. Until then, you are just a voice in the wilderness, one raging against the machine. A one-man revolution begging for a rubber room and a diet of thorazine. If you can't help bring on that proof that this is no longer a republic, the least you could do is have the courtesy to stay out of the way.

    What are the odds at? I think he would do better than Cruz or Kasich. Not sure if he will win, or if he even wants to beat Hillary.. but if he does want to win I think he's got the best shot of the candidates left.

    Can you re-word this post? Your friend who likes Trump told you about how pro-spanking (who??) was and how that study was wrong...??? Trump does not spank his children, fwiw.

    You're missing some of what was said, possibly due to the surrounding noise. Getting through the next years is the alternative to NOT getting through it. Nothing in her post suggests a "shelter in place and do nothing" kind of attitude. In fact, the post talks about elections at a variety of levels. Whether those of us still living in the US like it or not, our lives are still going to intersect the Government on some level or another. It behooves us to try to elect decent people locally to help staunch the bleeding, locally. Those elections don't happen "every eight years" and none of us is patting ourselves on the back, resting on our voting someone in. It's an ongoing process, to elect people we can actually be proud of. Hell, it's an ongoing process just to get a choice in some local elections.

    Now that the thread was combined with another thread on the topic, so we don't have to repeat ourselves and get deja vu all over again, are we sure there's still a problem? Do you consider the OP's 'oh my little thread is now just the tail end of a big thread' whine to be something actually worth addressing?

    I think that's more intervention than God is willing to provide, Gunny. But if that were to happen at the LP convention, suddenly the LP would have a candidate with a reputation for integrity, relevant experience, and name recognition too.

    Not even close, kid. It just looks that way because the Trump people spam here day and night--almost as if they're earning a living at it, so they don't have to stop and go to work because they're already there. Which is what I was saying in the other thread about giving alternative viewpoints a chance to be heard over the Official Noise.

    I see this argument a lot, and it could have been made a century ago. There are some fields that will wind up being fully automated. There are new fields that don't even exist yet. Machines need to be created, programmed, assembled, audited, shipped, serviced, and so on. Then there are the fields where it's been promised that automation will take over for many, many years, but it doesn't quite cut it. I've run through a dozen different versions of proofreading software, and none of them are worth a damn. They're certainly not worth the expense and hassle of switching over entire processes to make use of them. Then there's the paperless society and electronic medical records. If our records are electronic, why does it take the same amount of staff to shepherd them through the process? Electronic records must be audited, maintained, corrected, and so on, and certain aspects are still kept on paper as "wet signature" documents. That last part is being phased out, but in order to do so, each clinician has to be issued a tablet to use out in the field so that they can obtain electronic signatures. Someone has to maintain those machines, which will see a LOT of wear and tear. There will be a reduction in employment (maybe) but there's nearly always a shift to new opportunities. Whether those opportunities are generated close enough for the unemployed to take advantage of them is another matter.

    Ron Paul needs to carry out Trump's threat. Last I checked, what's sauce for the goose is still sauce for the gander. Ron? If you accepted the Libertarian Party nomination, they'd actually have a candidate!

    Read my comments again. The reason a site which is dedicated to giving alternative points of view a place where they can be heard might censor some input is simple. If it does not, the powers that be need only hire a hundred full time spammers and those alternative viewpoints will be drowned out within the day--and forevermore. If forum slide is a term you are unfamiliar with, you might consider getting familiar with it so that you can continue to participate in this conversation in an intelligent manner. These things are a genuine concern. And this is a major affront to your Constitutional rights because...?

    Yes. And if that mission is to present viewpoints in opposition to the Official Viewpoint, which needs no help as it is repeated ad naseum with a billion watts of broadcast power 24/7, then censorship can be part and parcel to that mission. Now why shouldn't we maintain a place where the narrative which gets no airtime elsewhere can stand out? Do you have a good reason?

    This has been discussed and debunked in numerous threads. Which is the only possible reason you could have for starting a whole new thread about it, instead of discussing it there. Flagged. Well that explains why you're still here. Now, care to explain how this is relevant to this new thread spamming old information?

    You understood as late as just last year how an unsolicited endorsement from a polarizing figure could be used to discredit the endorsee... What happened in the last year to cause you to forget that simple concept? Senility? Or is this just part of your attempt to reinvent the world into one where Trump is not a polarizing figure?

    Now, see? This is why it's harmful to let people start new threads every time Trump opens his mouth. This question has been asked and answered in other threads. What better way to discredit Ron Paul and all of us than to have the biggest, most ridiculous Establishment Clown in recent memory speak out on our behalf?
