    Asking if there is currently managed trade and who controls it is not a nonsensical question. Ok, see, you're completely wrong. Are you from the 19th century or something? I hate to break it to you but trade is already tightly regulated by the globalists. Go ahead, try and get into the importing and exporting business and don't deal with any governments and see what happens.

    Why is it so difficult for you to answer a question? Who is the power being transferred to? Do the globalists not already control trade? Do you realize you are trying to convince somebody who is against managed trade deals to be against managed trade deals?

    I'm full of shit? Really? Are you even reading my posts? Are saying that the globalists don't currently control trade? You have to be completely insane to think that the globalists don't currently control trade. So please explain what this 'transfer of power' is that you are speaking of?

    No, there is only ONE important "if". You claim that TPP is a transfer of power. That's BULLSHIT. The globalists already control trade, so who is the power being transferred to? We already lost our freedom. So the one important "if" is whether the trade document makes trade more free or not. If it doesn't, then Gary Johnson won't vote for it, as he shouldn't. If it does, then he will vote for it, as he SHOULD. Even though we both know they won't put forward a TPP that will free up trade - but if our assumption is true, then we can effectively count on Gary Johnson not to vote for it. So there is no problem. The TPP issue shouldn't hurt Gary Johnson because he has said he would only vote for it if it frees up trade, and that is the libertarian answer. LE's conspiracy theorist answer is to say never vote for it because it will never free up trade (admittedly I take the same position). Your purist answer is to not vote for more liberties because it isn't 100% liberty.

    Dude, you are totally missing the point. Here is what you don't seem to incorporate into your whole thought process - WE ALREADY HAVE MANAGED TRADE. If the new managed trade deal frees up trade, it would be better than the current system of managed trade. If all drugs are illegal and two people were running for office and one of them wanted to decriminalize cannabis but would keep the other drugs illegal and the other candidate wanted to keep all drugs illegal, I'm sorry, all else equal I'm going to vote for the guy who wants to decriminalize cannabis. Because I will have more freedom than if I vote for the other guy and there is no viable third option. You only want a 100% pure candidate, so you will never have anybody to vote for and the more evil person will always win if liberty voters adopt your strategy. It's a losing strategy at this point in time. It might be a good strategy for another time and place, maybe if we had a lot more freedom.. but we don't.. so I'm sorry, but I don't accept that as a viable strategy and neither does Bryan. Like I said in my last post, the people trying to pass this stuff want to make trade less free. I get that, LE certainly gets that. That is why if anybody asks, I say I am against TPP because I know even if they put out a version that appears to free up trade, on the last day they will slip in a bunch of stuff and try and pass a bill that is thousands of pages long in less than a day. But if Gary Johnson keeps his word, as President he would not sign the bill until he read it so they would have to make the bill available to read for much longer before he would ever sign it. So effectively he would be against the bill that they want to pass.

    He said he would sign it if it furthered free trade. Pretty sure Rand Paul said the same thing way back when. If it does in fact make trade more free than it was before, it should be signed. It would supersede a lot of older regulations, thereby reducing the regulations on trade which is our goal. Now, here's the thing. You and I know about the conspiracy of the globalists, and neither of us trust that they will ultimately put forward a bill that frees up trade. Instead we know it will create a crony trade system that will benefit the globalists. So really what it comes down to is trust. Do we trust that when it comes down to it, would Rand wait for the final legislation to be introduced, read through it and make a sound determination regarding whether it is a benefit to liberty or not? I think most of us here would trust Rand. Rand is pretty skeptical when it comes to the globalists as well, maybe not quite as skeptical as his father but he knows what is up. Gary Johnson, just a few months ago said he was AGAINST TPP.. He changed his mind when some advisers told him that it would free up trade, and he made the claim that he would vote for it if it did in fact free up trade. So the question again is, do we trust Gary Johnson to read through the bill and make a sound determination regarding whether it is a benefit to liberty or not? I trust that he would put forth an effort to do so, but I think he is less wary of the globalists and might not have his defenses up quite as strongly as Rand would. But the fact that he was against it a few months ago is a good sign that he does hold some amount of skepticism against the globalists.

    I brought up the CRA since Johnson supports at least parts of it, I thought that was what you getting after. I see philosophies and principles pretty much the same (strategic viewpoint), but policies are different, as they are tactical. See below. I agree with this 100%. Well stated. It is also principal in support of Man's life itself.

    Marvin is the least politically active on the front-side (the showman aspect of politics), but recall that he was on the board of directors for the security company that did security for the WTC complex, Dulles Airport and American Airlines before 9/11. The security company would have helped clear the workers on the elevator shafts to plant the nano-thermite explosives and they would have been responsible for the flight drills and allowing the terrorists into secured areas on the day of the attacks.

    The agenda is put forth in the site's Mission: http://www.ronpaulforums.com/content.php?1957 Please let me know if you have any questions off of that. The campaign evaluation system is a bit more complex than our Mission principles, since it recognizes the political challenges our movement has. A key issue that you seem to be hitting on is with the Civil Rights Act, to be certain, this legislation is in violation of the fundamental concepts you outline but conversely, attacking it is near political suicide. From a practical standpoint if we had a choice between a candidate that would further the welfare / warfare state vs one who would drive us to 100% liberty minus keeping the CRA, what do we do? Our lives would be 99.99% better with candidate #2, so some will choose to support them with an asterisk that the disagree with the CRA issue. When evaluation candidate on the issue they get graded as follows:

    "the better question is- why would such an act make you feel something that we commonly describe as negative, bad, angry, etc. not an argument on words, but leading you to something that is innate in your being."

    Man... that was beautifully put!
