    I'm with Rand. Trump is either going to imperfectly push for peace or embrace interventionism, he has flirted with both. Criticizing his performance if you support diplomacy doesn't push him more into the Amash camp, it tells him to listen to Bolton if he wants to be popular. If Ron or Rand were president they would have met with Putin and received this same flak. About time to err on the side of humility in foreign relations.

    I know, but I replied to you anyway because I believe people can learn and change. Perhaps you thought my Statement was empty sarcasm; it was not. For me to believe that I have a right to eat animals but not humans, I must believe that humans have different rights than animals. For you to believe that you have a right to eat plants but not animals, you must believe that animals have different rights than plants. Why do you think animals have different rights than plants?

    When a human being kills a plant for food, he is neglecting his own hunger for justice. Man prays for mercy, but is unwilling to extend it to others. Why then should man expect mercy from God? It is unfair to expect something that you are not willing to give.

    If they already published it, there is a copy somewhere. Somebody ought to photocopy the hell out of it and distribute it all across the country.

    Well said Ted Cruz, someone like Lee could mean actually overturning tyranny, hopefully Trump doesn't fall for the argument that a moderate record is needed for confirmation.

    I think you can teach your beliefs and critical thinking at the same time. Kids learning things on their own is often the best, but parents have the chance to teach them the most important things they themselves have learned throughout their lives. Things that they think will help their kids to live a healthy happy life. Things that they wished they knew when they were kids instead of figuring them out at 35. That might include lots of things, how to change a tire, to not eat yellow snow, the importance of personal freedom. For some that may include the opinion that religion is bunk, even a lot of Christians will say that organized religion as we know it is a joke. For me though the most important thing in my personal journey has been coming to the belief that there is a God and he is knowable. Whether that sounds weird or off the wall is not my concern, I'd share it with anyone. I just honestly agree with Jesus when he said seek and you shall find, I hold that I have. I don't think sharing that is brainwashing though because I don't tell anyone they should believe because I do or the book I read says so. I would just tell the kids to look for truth themselves. If someone doesn't want to look for God, or says they tried, or whatever else I don't try to shove my beliefs down their throat. In fact I love hearing of their own journey over a beer no matter what it has been. Because I do believe in truth, if I am wrong my opinions should die with me. So many people don't see it that way. Religious people often want others to believe in something because they do. This seems silly because of course it seems to the nonbeliever that the religious person just believes because someone else told them to. Atheists often mock those who do believe in something, and say only children believe in things they can't see. This seems silly to those who have had religious experiences, because the atheist seems to be saying that his lack of reasons to believe in a God means that no one else could possibly have one. Both examples show human arrogance, and clearly both can lead to teaching a child something other than the pursuit of truth. At the same time though an honest atheist, believer, or agnostic for that matter can both teach what they believe and a pursuit of truth. "Based on my years spent on this earth I believe/don't believe/ don't know/ don't care about X, here is why ____________, go out on your own and see what you find if it interests you."

    The problem is that he was specifically referring to states with a balanced budget amendment (every state except Vermont). Taxes in principle are not a zero sum game, but taxes in a BB state are. Let's say I sell lemonade, only, you don't get to choose if you buy it, or what the price is (like taxes and government services). I charge $1 per 12 oz cup. Every morning you and your neighbor Ralph line up and give me $1 and each get your 12 oz of lemonade. Now, if I only charge your neighbor Ralph 50Ę, that doesn't harm you in any way, and helps Ralph. It is not a subsidy, and you really ought to be happy for Ralph, and happy to reduce the size of Big Lemon. I think we all agree on these points. But actually, in 49 states, the analogy isn't true. Let's say Big Lemon made a new rule that the sum of all prices minus the sum of all lemonade must equal zero (like a balanced budget amendment). This time, when Ralph pays 50Ę, Big Lemon has to either charge you $1.50, or give you only 6 oz of lemonade. They either give 50Ę to Ralph by taking an extra 50Ę from you, or by taking 6 oz of lemonade from you.

    I quoted the article you posted to demonstrate that you have either lied about or accidentally misconstrued Napolitano. That is neither ignoring nor dismissing. I responded to your initial lies in detail, but you ignored me. The truth is, you consider Trump being a good guy as axiomatic, and anyone who isn't sufficiently in his favor is against him in your partisan mind. Actually, you are not a partisan. Your beliefs are even more simplistic than that. You believe the entire political landscape can be defined by not two whole parties, but two individuals: Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Seriously take a step back and read your posts like someone else wrote them. Your just attacking anyone who doesn't sufficiently defend Trump.

    Except patterns are made of parts. You make a series of claims, I discredit those claims, and you say it doesn't matter if those specific claims are true because there is a pattern. The problem with that is you made the pattern up from the now-discredited claims.

    I reread the article looking for what you said. Your original claim was that judge Napolitano said DOJ was not subject to any congressional oversight. Not only did he not say that, he said exactly the opposite: "the FBI and the DOJ...answered not only to the president but also to the House and Senate Judiciary committees...But the FBI's spying mission also subjected it to the scrutiny of two additional congressional committees, one in the House and one in the Senate." So then, what is his specific claim? He said "But it is not the role of Congress to do this in the midst of a criminal investigation, and it is not the role of a congressional intelligence committee to scrutinize law enforcement." So, because Napolitano believes that Congressional should wait until the investigation is not in process, and because he believes that the intelligence community isn't the one in charge of impeachment, you believe he's a swamp creature, a deep state plant, working for Clinton, and a traitor who can't be trusted? Do you realize how crazy you sound? It would seem as though you are anti-Nap merely because he doesn't sufficiently defend Trump, and because he doesn't sufficiently attack Hillary.

    Where specifically did he say that? And again, investigation is not a crime.

    Every state except VT has a balanced budget amendment. That means that every tax break to a special company requires a tax increase to another company unless they cut spending, in which case the other company is receiving fewer benefits but still paying the higher tax.

    That says they have power of impeachment. When did Napolitano say they don't? Because I haven't heard him say that.

    When did he do that? I hadn't heard of it and it wasn't in this thread. By definition, some investigations will be conducted where no law has been broken. Has he called for charges to be filled when no law was violated? Separation of powers. DOJ is part of the executive branch. I didn't think that was what he was saying was dangerous, but I can see that as a reasonable interpretation, so I can give you that one.
