    So much freedom- we can put you in jail for victimless crimes but you have no voice in it. This is the same logic that will support an 18 year old joining the military but won't allow them to drink. If people are going to be punished as adults then they should also have voting rights. And- if the gov was out of the school system maybe we could stop the ridiculous stuff that keeps teens babies and then demands they "grow up" immediately at 18. And, NO, I'm not in favor of 16 yr old know-nothings voting, but saying the two things aren't connected is not looking at the real picture.

    Not exactly AF- men were actually the first to wear many things that are now considered "feminine"- such as: Makeup Wigs High Heels Fancy jewelry & especially pierced ears. These only became "feminine" when men got tired of them & moved into different fashions. Then the women took over. ;) (Of course, pierced ears were always masculine as it was a sign that a sailor had actually crossed the equator.)

    I'm not supporting Turkey or Erdoğan but the Gatestone Institute is basically a Muslim-hate site. Most everything we read about the history of the Ottoman Empire is very imbalanced and not close to truth. At one time the Ottoman Empire was the greatest and most civilized on earth- think of America in it's prime. The Emperor Suleyman was considered one of the greatest leaders in history; he was also extremely cultured & artistic. The Ottomans never went through the "Dark Ages". That was a European experience. Also: jihad means a personal inner conflict to better oneself- the arabic word for war is: "al-harb". Jihad is NOT war against other religions. The Koran specifically refers to Jews and Christians as "people of the book" who should be protected and respected. Did the Ottoman's degenerate? Of course- think of the US's path in today's world.

    Here's Helmuth again, sputtering utter bullshit. First of all most people can't even recognize a Pit. Many "attacks" that have been blamed on Pits were a totally different breed. I had a Shar-pei/Lab mix doggie that everyone thought was a Pit. Pits were trained a few centuries ago for fighting but so were a lot of other breeds- Pits just get a bad rap nowadays because people are ignorant. http://love-a-bull.org/resources/the-history-of-pit-bulls/

    You're the one rewriting history. The Irish were hated because a) they were Catholic, and b) because they were not considered white. In his book The Renegade History of the United States, Thaddeus Russell explains that the first large wave of Irish immigrants worked low-paying jobs—mostly building the canals along the Canadian border—that other Americans wouldn’t do. Like finding out a song you thought was new is actually a 100-year-old remake, the Irish were simultaneously accused of stealing all the good jobs and branded as “lazy” and “shiftless.” They were also thought to be the nonwhite “missing link” between the superior European and the savage African based on stereotypes from the early American media, according to the Boston Globe: In the popular press, the Irish were depicted as subhuman. They were carriers of disease. They were drawn as lazy, clannish, unclean, drunken brawlers who wallowed in crime and bred like rats. Most disturbingly, the Irish were Roman Catholics coming to an overwhelmingly Protestant nation and their devotion to the pope made their allegiance to the United States suspect. In 1798, Congress passed three “Alien Acts” based mainly on fears of Irish-Catholic, anti-immigrant sentiment. These new laws gave the president the power to stop immigration from any country at war with the U.S. and the right to deport any immigrant, and made it harder for immigrants to vote. Then, again in the late 1840s, a nationalist political group called the Know-Nothings sprang from a populist movement of poor whites who were dissatisfied with the two-party system and started the American Party, intent on preserving America’s culture by restricting immigration, especially from Catholic countries—including by Irish Catholics.

    That is not my understanding. Can you cite the Indiana law that prohibits openly carrying a long gun? Or, openly carrying a handgun with a state license?

    We should end welfare anyway. But I agree with you that stopping illegal immigration is no reason to do that. For that matter, stopping illegal immigration in itself is not a good reason to do anything other than eliminating immigration restrictions, which would stop illegal immigration by way of making it legal. And you're exactly right that ending welfare would not affect the motivations of the majority of those who immigrate here illegally.

    This is so absurd it's ridiculous. Trump beat Hillary, not because he was a great candidate with a broad base of appeal, but because she is so reviled. Hillary was such a lousy candidate for the Dems that even someone as awful as Trump could beat her (albeit, in his case, just barely). Anyone else would have swept the floor with her. Cruz wouldn't have won as handily as some. But to say he would have done worse than Trump is not grounded in reality.

    LOL- all that yelling above w/o answering anything, while calling ME disruptive. You scream constantly about the Constitution but never acknowledge the fact the Constitution was a Hamiltonian coup to create a strong central government. And as far as this statement: That's EXACTLY what amuricans said about the Irish:

    Really. I see no posts from you about unconstitutional wars; about government owning land that belongs to the states, about over-regulations that harm small businesses, about gov unconstitutionally in education, medicine, and everything else that should be private, about the WoT and the WoD. Start objecting to those instead of your "hate dem brown people" meme & you might be taken a bit more seriously.

    Anti Federalist is freedom oriented- he's just fearful that more immigrants will support and increase the welfare/warfare state. His POV, I believe, is to fix the US probs first before letting more in.

    I do. But Iran has been on the attack map since before I was born. The first thing that let me know Trump was an a** hole was his hatred toward and his desire to take down Iran.

    I believe the day before the Hildago treaty was signed, ending the Mexican American War, gold was discovered. California was not heavily populated at the time but gold & railroads changed that. This changed the whole scope of California to the feds and made it their go-to place for experimenting on the locals and issuing in Big Gov in the West and later to compliment the freedoms lost from the Civil War. Nowadays, many people don't vote because they feel like it doesn't count. I also think that much of the voting/polling shite comes from government education, not a persons ethnic background. The schools were formed for this very reason & if we want to break out of the Matrix, the first thing we have to do is get gov out of education. Because of this "schooling" many people think they are supporting "Americanism" by following the public school rulebook. I'm not sure about Cali but when Utah territory was taken over by the feds, the people were forced into gov schools to become "un"doctrinated. A lot of young people in the west were beginning to wake up with Ron Paul & I think they would welcome real freedom.
