    I'll be honest. I am pretty indifferent on abortion. It can be argued both ways. I am probably pro-choice if for no other reason, I believe it reduces crime. http://freakonomics.com/2005/05/15/abortion-and-crime-who-should-you-believe/ I don't think Chelsea Clinton's argument about improving the economy is correct, but if it were, I see it as a good argument to make.

    I get she is saying more women in the work force is good for the economy but you are also taking workers out of the economy. If preventing kids from marginal situations from entering the labor force by being aborted is good for the economy, it logically should follow that limiting low skill immigration of people from marginal situations in marginal countries should also boost the economy.

    Anyone who doesn't have a positive view of capitalism is morally depraved. I view anti-capitalists as evil as Nazis. They should be treated as such. I always stick up for Bill Clinton because he was a pretty moderate Democrat. I know it is easy to hate on Clinton. But how many current elected Democrats are as conservative on fiscal issues as Bill Clinton? I can't even think of one. There might be someone but I don't know who it would be. Democrats have become radically left wing.

A good start for him would be a job, not another grift. I don't know what it is with these people like Kokesh and Austin Petersen. It is go time man.

    Why would the neocons hate a person with their foreign policy? Last I checked, he didn't do much with Syria. The sanctions from Russia were basically forced by a unanimous Congress vote. He is brokering peace in North Korea. He did break up the Iran Deal. Trump has generally good instincts on foreign policy and on balance isn't doing much wrong. Saying Trump's foreign policy is anything like Bush's is factually wrong. There is plenty to say about Trump but that he is like Bush on foreign policy is indisputably incorrect.

    His judges have been great. By all accounts from libertarians, his lower court appointees are about as good as they get. Gorsuch is great. We'll see with Kavanaugh. If you are complaining about his judge picks then you are just a perpetual whiner.

    If you are interested in reading about him, read King Icahn. Great read. A lot of the Gordon Gekko scenes like the shareholders scene were based on real life events from Icahn in the 80s. Just the stories in the book on how he negotiates are super entertaining and insightful. I use the Icahn method of wearing people down for everything now.

I completely missed " the right to peaceably assemble, or to petition for a governmental redress of grievances . I'll bet if people here are honest, I am not the only one who missed key parts without looking it up.

    I think a slave can murder a slaveholder. Not being able to engage in insider trading or dealing drugs is not slavery. Yes. You should follow drug and insider trading laws even if they are morally wrong.

    I am struggling here. I guess you are on like 8th level sarcasm. You will have to dumb it down for me. Here was your helpful hint. I don't know how else to interpret other than you believe it is okay to use violence against police who are trying to arrest someone for morally wrong laws.

    So to confirm, because drug laws are morally wrong (everyone would agree on that), if the police came armed to arrest El Chapo then El Chapo would be justified in shooting at the police. And if the police shot El Chapo, the police would be the bad guys in your world? What about insider trading? Those laws are morally wrong. If the police raid a hedge fund, then it is okay to shoot the police? Is that what you are saying?

    It is only a legitimate number if you make the assumption that 100% of people killed by cops are murders.

    Ummm... I explicitly said the cop was guilty of murder. Why would you say otherwise? Seems pretty clear what I said. Here it is again. He would have been one of the 25 of actual real murders. Instead you want to use phony numbers like 1150. Shooting people who are armed and using violence against you is okay in a libertarian society. It might not be in anarchotopia. It isn't murder. Acting like the police just execute thousands of people. is wrong. It isn't my opinion. It is what the facts say. It is a clownish argument that takes away from real police abuses. Even that guy's murder in South Carolina was completely avoidable. If didn't behave like a degenerate, he would be alive. I am NEVER getting shot by cop in that situation. NEVER. It isn't because I am white either. It is very easy to not get in a chase with a cop.

    There are legitimately bad things the police do. Planting evidence. Shooting dogs on raids. Stealing people's money through civil asset forfeiture. Using attack dogs on people who aren't resisting arrest. There is no need to make up an outrageous stat that they murder 1150 people.

    Okay. Well. That's factually wrong. Most of the animals who get shot by police deserved to be shot. That isn't being a statist bootlicker. It is a pure fact that most people cops shoot are subhuman trash. That doesn't mean the cops are good or they don't abuse power. It just means the people they usually shoot are much worse. Watch Flint Town on Netlfix. I would never want to be a cop dealing with the dregs of society. You are dealing with animals. 12 cops were charged last year. I get that bad cops get acquitted and many don't get charged. Let's say all 12 who were charged were guilty and 13 more cops never got charged. So 25 people were wrongly shot by cops. And most of those people could have avoided it if they weren't mouthy and aggressive. Like the guy who got shot in South Carolina fleeing the cop. The cop should have been convicted but the guy who was shot was running from the cop. The cop got lazy and didn't want to run. But I can't really say I feel bad for the guy who was shot. He was running from a cop. Sp 25 (maybe) not 1147. The idea that cops murder over a 1000 people a year is just wrong.
