    Ron's presidential campaigns were educational first and foremost. He had no mandate to reach certain percentages, nor expectations of winning. These factors allowed him to say things one would never say if he were in Gary's position. More pointedly, IINM Ron's stump speeches on the congressional trail were not as "pure" as his speeches on the presidential trail. Why do you think that would be? Perhaps because all politicians "pander" if they actually want to reach certain percentages. And how has running the Browns, Badnariks, and Pauls worked out for us in the end? What I see is the authoritarian flip-flopper Trump taking the lions share of the uninformed. IMO purist libertarianism is highly nuanced and difficult to sell in the soundbite nature of modern politics.

    I think one big problem that needs to be solved first is the difficulty of reaching 15% and 5% among the uniformed general population. I've said it before, and I'll say it again, attempting to run as a libertarian is like walking a razor thin slackrope, with alligators and pterodactyls nipping at you from all sides.

    He said he would approach it with skepticism, and has a record of using his veto power when he finds things he doesn't like. He, also, hasn't read it so would be kinda hard for him to comment on its contents... ISTM - The worst people can say at this point is that he is keeping an open mind on the issue. It'll be a strange world where reserving final judgment til all the evidence is in can be considered a bad thing...

    It's the same reasoning used to justify voting for the lesser of two evils. We hear it over and over during every Presidential election cycle. Donald Trump is evil, just as Hillary Clinton is evil. Nothing is going to change with either of them in the Oval Office, and even Dr. Ron Paul recognizes that.

    Like phill4paul, I'm anti-Trump, too, but if Trump loses and we end up with Hillary as our next gun-grabbing President, then it will be the fault of the Republican Party and Republican voters who continue to tolerate, endorse, support, and vote for unprincipled, big-government candidates just so we don't end up with a stinking Democrat in the Oval Office. The GOP should have promoted Sen. Rand Paul when it had the chance because he would do far better against Hillary Clinton than Donald Trump can. And, of course, Sen. Paul has a much better record on gun rights than Donald Trump has.

    Well, if Trump loses, then blame the Republican Party for it. For years in these Presidential races, the leaders of the party (with the help of the mainstream media) have shunned, isolated, humiliated, lied, ignored, and ridiculed principled, moral candidates like Dr. Ron Paul and Sen. Rand Paul. Then when those candidates finally drop out of the race (to the GOP's delight), then conservatives are left with establishment-friendly, unprincipled, flip-flopping, egotistical, power-hungry candidates that are used to vote against the excrement that comes out of the donkey's ass on the Democratic side, always with the reasoning that if we don't vote for the Republican candidate, then a Democratic victory will spell the doom for us all. Thus, we always get enticed to vote for the lesser of two evils. So, you know what? If Trump loses, then we all deserve the consequences of it, especially the Republican Party. Don't expect me to vote for the Republican when the Republican Party does all it can to rid itself of statesmen who rightly deserve the title as "President of the United States," like Drs. Ron and Rand Paul, and then uses scare tactics to try to force the public that a Republican douchebag is now better than the Democratic douchebag. Enjoy your chains. You wear them well.

    By the same logic, I would ask Alicia Dearn why she supports the "emotional harm" inflicted upon Christian bakers from homosexuals, demanding them to provide a good (a gay wedding cake) towards an event which those Christians cannot support in good conscience because of their Biblical convictions.

    Yeah, that's all well and good, except for the fact that Trump also believes we should "bomb the shit" out of certain countries and take their oil.

    Your statement above proves again what I mean by your being blinded of Trump's tyrannical nature because of your pragmatism. There is no "overall usefulness" to Trump's candidacy to the "liberty movement" because Trump does not stand for liberty. Just because the establishment types in both parties don't like Trump does not make him pro-liberty. In fact, the leader of the "liberty movement," Dr. Ron Paul, has even mentioned several times that Trump is just as much of an authoritarian as the establishment folks who are against him. But the fact that you can overlook Trump's obvious carelessness towards principles like the right to private property for the sake of his "overall usefulness to the movement" really demonstrates that you're not seeking to advance "the movement" at all. That's what we critics of Trump and his supporters (including Dr. Ron Paul) keep trying to tell you; your pragmatism does not protect the very things (like respect for private property) that you believe it does. In fact, it undermines those principles, and stifles what the "liberty movement" is all about.

    Any man who has a history of using the government to take away private property for his own commercial interests, as well as supporting foreign invasions just so we can take a country's national resources is a tyrant. If you can't see that, then you're simply blinded by your pragmatism.

    Yes, it's almost like they're afraid to admit that someone can be both physically and emotionally attracted to little boys and little girls, which, if they did concede, it would open the door to the acceptance of pedophilia, too.

    The misusage of Jeremiah 31 is a common error of Dispensationalism, used to show some sort of disparity between the nature of the Old Covenant and the New Covenant. However, the writer of Hebrews uses Jeremiah 31 to prove his case in Hebrews 8 that what makes the two covenants different is that there is a new priesthood, which is founded in Christ, after the order of Melchizedek. Thus, what makes the New Covenant different from the Old Covenant has nothing to do with the former being internalized versus the latter being externalized. In fact, in the Old Covenant, there were saints who already had the law "written in their hearts," like King David. Psalm 40:8 says, "I delight to do Thy will, O my God; yea, Thy law is within my heart." We even see God calling upon Old Covenant Christians who had God's law in their hearts, stating, "Hearken unto Me, ye that know righteousness, the people in whose heart is My law; fear ye not the reproach of men, neither be ye afraid of their revilings." So, you're totally wrong that the Old Covenant people are different from the New Covenant people because of some internalization of spiritual life in the people of the former. Both covenants had people with the law written in their hearts and minds. The difference is that under the Old Covenant, there was a separate priesthood (Levites) who had the laws of God and whose job was to explain the law to the people of God. In the New Covenant, there is no longer that kind of priesthood because Christ, being the Word, now imparts His word to all covenant people, without the need of a tribal priesthood, and especially, without daily and yearly sacrifices to atone for sins. So, once again, there is no difference between Old Covenant Christians and New Covenant Christians. They are both in the Father, through Christ, and in the power of the Holy Spirit. The same laws in the Old Testament can be applied to New Testament Christians, through Christ, because Christ is the One Who not only nailed the Law to cross when He died, but resurrected the Law in His resurrection and ascension. But it takes wisdom.

    By your logic here, all of us who donated to Paul are "establishment", and that is absurd. Trump OTOH brags about being a crony donor who buys favors. He is a typical politician spewing pandering lies, bolstered by his friends running the MSM Another thing that blows my mind is people expecting he will bring down all these "terrific" establishment friends he is in bed with... Really?

    It bears repeating that just because a person appears to be "antiestablishment," it doesn't mean that that person is also "pro-liberty." In my opinion, Trump is not antiestablishment; he just wants to create another kind of establishment. He's also at war...with himself: And, the most antiestablishment statesman to ever sit in a seat of Congress has exposed Trump for who is really is--an authoritarian:

    I can't look at that without wondering how the transgender priests differentiate between "masculinity" and "femininity." If they want to create a dichotomy between "sex" and "gender," then what makes a male "male," and a female "female," apart from biology?

    I hear you, and agree they have few distinct libertarian principles, but I still hope to gd this is the year to break the damned ballot access hurdles and at least expose the disinterested masses to the existence and potential strength of 3rd Parties. Right and wrong, J/W are liberty minded and relatively honest, as far as I can tell. At this point I'm taking the no-one is perfect stance and am just hoping to move the ball down the field towards ... IMO there is much to be made of this run and I trust that interested new people, once exposed to the actual few tenets of , those people will come around no matter who led them in, (yes even those led by mittens himself.) The idea is to grow the tent, right? And don't most of us know former neo-con types who are now full on anarchists types? How many of them came only to argue? How many were turned by the grassroots rather than RP himself? Yes, the watchlist thing was especially cringeworthy, but if I see a chance to move the damn ball I'll bear that cringe and work harder. Cuz I'm a one foot in front of the other kinda guy.
