    This has been rumored for some time. I don't take Stone's word for anything. This rings more true most anything he says. Here is an article from back in February at CNBC. With John Kelly under fire, Mick Mulvaney reportedly emerges as possible next Trump chief of staff https://www.cnbc.com/2018/02/09/trump-news-mulvaney-emerges-as-possible-white-house-chief-of-staff.html?__source=sharebar|twitter&par=sharebar

    Well.... He escalated tensions with Russia and put us on the brink. He dealt with them in the worst possible way. He and his diplomats went radio silent. He dealt with them passive aggressively. Reagan set the moral tone that there is only way good guy here but we are going to talk things through and deescalate tensions. Domestically, Carter put price controls on gas which lead to shortages and gas lines. He put a windfall profits tax on the oil companies, because they apparently didn't have economics textbooks available in the White House. He raised taxes in the middle of a slow economy. He thought you controlled inflation through balancing the budget not through monetary policy. Inflation got so bad they had to issue Carter bonds in different currencies. Then he is giving speeches from the Oval Office about how America's best days are behind and we should just accept a lower standard of living. He let the Iranians walk all over him with US hostages. It took an ass kicker like Reagan to get the country out it slump. I don't understand the dislike here for Reagan. He wasn't perfect but I would be okay naming a minimum of one street after Reagan in every city. Two in bigger cities.

    I can only speak anecdotally. I live in MI. My parents both love Trump. The two things they like most are his views on immigration and trade. I think the trade and immigration stuff plays really well here. Large parts of the Midwest have populations that are 95%+ white. A lot of lower end jobs are starting to be filled with people from Central America. I think the immigration issue is a lot bigger than you think to middle aged and older people in the Midwest.

    Days like today are why the only site I read on a consistent basis is Ron Paul Forums. The mainstream media is awful. Even libertarians are turning into idiots on this. One thing Ron Paul got very right is talk to other people.

    This isn't really surprising. Just a reminder that there never was an anti-war left. They were just anti-Bush. Also appears to be a reminder that a lot of libertarians were really not anti-war.

    I don't see anything wrong that. It isn't a matter of balls. Last time I checked Rand didn't win the election. Disagreeing with someone on a small issue that is debated even among libertarians is not a reason to vote against. I would vote to confirm Kavanaugh if I were in the Senate. Period. The only thing Rand is doing wrong is acting like his vote is in doubt. It does get on Sunday shows to talk against the issues so maybe isn't so terrible.

    Reagan had the best foreign policy of any modern president. He only used military force a few times. And they were small scale. He had the wisdom to cut and run in Lebanon. Grenada was justified and successful. And retaliating against Qaddafi's attack on American soldiers was justified. There were no humanitarian missions. And he wasn't passive aggressive like cuckold Jimmy Carter. He made it clear, "We win, they lose." His ability to tackle issues head from a position of strength ended tensions without firing a shot.

    Isn't that good? There are more trees now in the United States than there were a 100 years. If there is a profit to be made, it means those trees have value and are furthering humanity. I don't know anything about those trees but maybe chopping them down is their best use.

    Well...... Communists believe that stuff. Ted Turner says things like that. Since when does overpopulation cause famines in a capitalist society? Poor people are fat in capitalist countries. Are there a lot of starving people in Hong Kong? Capitalism creates a horn of plenty. Capitalists tend to believe that humans are the ultimate resource. Human ingenuity solves problems. There are no vital resources are humans are eliminating. People have said we were going to run out of oil 100 years ago. Anything that is worth saving will either be saved through charity or through the market. If orcas have value someone will capture them and breed them. Otherwise, why are they so special? Most species go extinct.

    1016436405923467266 He'll get confirmed but it is possible with all Republican votes whereas Hardiman would have pealed off as many as 5 to 10 Dems. I know McConnell was really pushing hard to nominate someone other than Barrett or Kavanaugh because they are both more problematic to get through the Senate.

    That's the worst idea I've ever heard. Not to mention Kavanaugh is one of the least likely people to get confirmed of the people mentioned to fill Kennedy's spot.

    Zero chance. Rand is the only person who expressed dismay but he isn't voting against a Republican Supreme Court Nominee. There isn't enough to dislike about Kavanaugh to take that kind of stand.

    I guess that settles that. All they have they do is read the text and all the answers are right there on a 240 year old document. Glad you cleared that up. But what happens if the the document contradicts itself? Oh I know. Ouija Board, right?

    So a private organization of people with similar interests who voluntarily get together has no place in a free society? Let's say you are a successful local lawyer or you own a jewelry store. You could go to the bowling alley. Nothing wrong with that. But a lot of people like to hang with other people in their own peer group and a country club is a way to do that.

    I think there is value for a millennial in being a member at a country club if you are in a profession like lawyer or sell insurance or financial services. Most dues are heavily discounted if you are under 35 or 40 (like 70% less). But if you are an engineer or something, it just isn't going to be a good value proposition. I think a lot of millennials saw the terrible decisions their parents made with housing and cars and want to do learn from those mistakes.

    I don't understand why more people don't do that. Toyota's and Honda's last forever. You can buy a 10 year old car where depreciation all but stops and all you have are the repair costs, which are comparatively low on Toyota's and Honda's.

    It isn't clear at all what the Constitution means. There is a lot open to interpretation. You have Amendments that are very vague. It is the job of the Supreme Court to have the final say, which is why it is important to have people who don't just look at the text of the Constitution, but appoint judges who are activists for liberty. Contraception was illegal in Connecticut. Many people who try to just interpret the Constitution would say "Well nothing about that in the text. Just leave it to the states." That is what Ron Paul says. Ron Paul thought sodomy laws were okay because states had those laws. That isn't what I say. I want judges who use an expansive definition of the 9th and 14th Amendments to shoot down laws like that. I don't believe states can take rights away. Here is smart person's take on the role of the courts and it isn't to just be faithful to the text. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/volokh-conspiracy/wp/2015/01/15/rand-paul-im-a-judicial-activist/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.f73f0a3451bc
