    Listen closely and you will hear a drum playing in the background. That is the hallmark of Nigerian soccer fans, this chicken guy is definitely an outlier. Also, the songs they are singing are praise music because Nigerians are fanatically religious. He is a miracle working God, he is the alpha and Omega, he is a miracle working God .......

    Any leader who doesn't secretly believe this is a liar. If I was president, I would much want them to like me the way the Germans adored a person like Hitler. The love for Kim Jun Un seems a bid culty seeing as the people are living in squalor and somehow they still loved him. So yes, that kind of love accompanied with me doing something that bring about that level of adoration.

    Nigerian fans aren't actually know for chickens, they are known for bringing talking drums to the stadium. But then again it is soccer and they will do just about anything if they believe it would help em win. I was licking a pet snake yesterday hoping that would tilt the odds against Croatia. That bloody snake failed me again :(

    Buy them from whom? it was discovered after the country had been founded and assuming it was discovered under govt land, how do you make the break now? To be honest with u, I see things like oil and underground water tables as the same, the person who happened to won the land above it did not create, they just discovered and extracted it. So maybe the owners of the land above it can get some finders fee/royalty deal but I just have issues with individuals having outright ownership of such natural resources. Maybe I will come around to it, just not there yet.

    And its not just the fact that there is no income tax but they also have a very generous welfare system. free post secondary education, healthcare, housing etc etc. Thanks the fact that they socialized their oil wealth. I know some people would prefer that some individual had taken over said oil fields and enrich themselves with it. And yes, I get the irony that even with it being socialized, the majority of the people making the most benefit from oil are well connected govt officials.

    So, I foolishly have refused to buy insurance from work because I was trying to be all rebellious even though it costs me as a single youngish male about $40/month. This premium is less than the $600+ I could have paid in fines. Anyway, they made me pay for the fines the last few times I used Jackson Hewitt to file my taxes but the last year, I used H&R block and the lady was able to get it off my taxes. Voila, I did not pay any fines for the first time ever. Now, I don't care anymore and just got the damn insurance. There is a way around the fines and some tax prep places can clue you in on it.

    You can play Monday morning QB all you want but just know that no campaign is perfect. Trump made many mistake himself but once the media latched unto him, it was a foregone conclusion that he would win the race. People underestimate the power the media still have on the average voter. Rand had very powerful forces working against him

    Thanks for pointing that out, I must have missed the one. I did a google search of Sanford + some of populist Trump policies got nothing for the policies I used. Also on the immigration bit, I think he still supports Trump's policies with opposition coming from ways to pay for it. Could this have harmed him with his base? yes. I guess you were right all along :)

    Moron? I understand how what I said hurts your feelings but if it makes you feel any better, my criticism came from the heart. Also, I don't hold it against you that you support Trump. Loads of good, intelligent people fell for his con. And yes, I know my writing skills aren't the best, my sentence structure/syntax, grammar, spelling could all use some improvement and it is something I have always struggled with. Also, I can't proofread to save my life. You really don't have to tell me about it, I am well aware of it and I work on it every single day of my life. And no, I won't make the excuse that it's because English is my second language, I know loads of people who did not speak English at all before they arriving to the states who have better command of the English language than me. Its the vibe I get from reading your many posts of RPF, deal with it. Lets just agree to disagree here cos I think tax cuts, spending increase etc appeal to the common man too. I think what you are trying to say here is that Trump introduced new populist policies to the campaign like immigration and border wall security. That I can agree with you on.

    The thng is this republicans lie in campaign all the time to win election, they pledge support for very populist policies only to renege on them once they get into office, why can't the libertarians do something similar?

    Gonna say this, just because a strategy did not work doesn't mean the strategy is wrong. Maybe given the time, his personal, his personal experience, the mood of the country, the help from the media, he was the unbeatable candidate in the race? still doesn't dismiss the idea that attacking his credibility was a good strategy. I think Trump tapped in something emotional in people to the point they were more invested in him as a person than any thing he said about his policies. This is one place where I think libertarians can learn a thing or two from Trump. They need to stop being policy wonks and realize that the masses need more than anything a father figure, a leader, someone to inspire and give them hope. Trump did this better than anyone in the race and he was rewarded with the victory. It is not nonsense, wikileak showed the strategy of the elite was to push and promote Trump over all the other republican candidates and they did this via a non conventional, reverse psychology sort of way. Think, addition by subtraction :) and it worked. The people in large masses fell for him. Wrong again, a strategy that loses is not automatically a bad strategy, strategies are relative and the best strategy is the one that gives you the best chance to win regardless of whether it nets you the win. I think your problem is that you underestimate your enemy, you see them as one dimensional idiots like the people who vote. They are not, they are experienced world conquerors who have different methods to trick the average voter into voting for one of their own whilst they believed they are voting against the establishment.

    Sorry to break your heart but this is my honest to God perception of you. The reverence you have for Trump and the movement that has arisen to follow him gives me that impression that you are a Trump ass kisser. So, I am being completely honest with myself here cos this is how I see you, it is the implicit vibe you exude that bring me to this conclusion. Also, your original post on this thread also didn't help with the matter. Correct me if I am wrong but I have yet to see any post of yours that is any thing but extremely favorable to Trump. Putting all of that together, it is how I came to my conclusion about u as a Trump asskisser. The post was a reply to No_body's replying to your post where I mistakenly conflated the posts from you two. He mentioned libertarian party and you were talking about libertarian leaning republicans those are 2 different animals. My apologies for doing that, I should have reread your post before making that post.

    On criticized the aluminium and steel tariffs but those weren't the populist policies he ran on trade with. Its one thing if Sanford criticized him not signing the TPP. So I wouldn't really consider this going against his populist trade policies.. Immigration and spending bill on the wall are one issue here and this is what Sanford has said about it. http://www.islandpacket.com/news/local/community/beaufort-news/article136327343.html

    I agree with you on the effectiveness of the Rand campaign. Personally, I think he wasted too much time talking about surveillance and the constitution. I have come to realize that nobody really cares about that document especially the particulars. Voters just want to be safe and prosper in their homeland and if that means govt surveilling their every move? they are just OK with it. Secondly, his criticism of Trump conservative cred was the best way to attack Trump but something unusual happened, the media with its unfair attack and constant coverage of Trump, made him into a martyr for republicans to rally behind. At that point, it didn't really matter what what said or who said it, you were seen as part of the republican enemy for criticizing Trump. Rand's strategy at the point was just fine, I can see no better way of playing it.

    Paleolibertarian is a Trump worshiping fan boy who disapproves of anyone that doesn't kiss Trump's ass. Just the mere idea that a politician competing with Trump for votes would dare criticize him is anathema for him. He also conflates the libertarian party with libertarian leaning republicans. I am not well read on the libertarian party so I am not going to try and argue with u there but if you are talking about libertarian leaning republicans, then he is wrong. They too support populism, how else can you explain their desire to cut taxes (popular) without cutting spending(another popular policy). These people have shown than they would compromise their principles for party and populism. From what I have read about Sanford, he never opposed any of Trump's populist policies. He disagreed with him in areas where he was acting like a progressive and a non conservative and that caused a rift with him and Trump.

    Who could imagine that a candidate running in a primary would dare attack the front runner. I cannot imagine anything more blasphemous than that. The fact that it did not work for him doesn't mean that it is a bad strategy to criticize Trump. Watch this next coming election how many people who criticize Trump/go against Trump supported candidates kick ass. You look weak and impotent if you are afraid to attack the front runner. In fact, I will go as far as to say that I will not vote for anyone who is too timid and weak to confront a front runner. Not saying that is all they should be doing but if they shy away from it, I will shy away from voting for said politician(actually, I don't vote anymore). Just saying

    I say he who is without sin cast the first stone, someone made a one time boo boo in life and we want to condemn them. trump is also a sexual deviant, and philanderer/adulterer. Also, it is a fact that we got Nikki Haley in the UN because of Trump, this is not the voters or another group of ignorant people who put her in position, it was Trump. So if you want to blame anyone for Nikki Haley, blame Trump.

    It seems to work for Trump and his fan boys. Trump sold his candidacy with populist policies but once in office abandoned just about every single one of those policies. His anti neocon, take care of America policies were all but abandoned once he became president. On the other hand, can you give an example where Mark Sanford went against Trump on any and I mean any of his populist policies? Any president to be successful doesn't just need yes men like Rand, he needs people to hold his feet to the fire and encourage him to do the right thing.

    You get a knife, put it behind your windpipe and with the sharp edge facing the anterior side, put it forward. You will get such a clean cut that even if the ambulance is 5 mins away from a level 1 trauma hospital, you will not make it alive. No need thanking me :)

    I calculated the numbers using the Annual summary section. Just minus household participants from 2015 to 2016 and u get 744k households and do the same for 2017 to 2018 u also get 123k. Temporary increase dropping off would actually work in his favor when those people are dropped off the roll.

    Wait a minute, the cost to govt went from $63 b to $26 b from 2017 to 2018. Forget number of household participants, this is the number they should be showcasing. OMG!!! Just realized the cost per person increased while the number of participants barely decreased. I think the number for 2018 is not for the full year. I had assumed it was reporting Jan 2017 to Jan 2018 as fiscal year 2018. But I am afraid its not.

    Still 2015 to 2016 showed 744k households drop out of the program and 2017 to 2018 showed 123k households dropping out. No matter which data set u use, the rate is slowing down under Trump. Which is something I would have expected 10 yrs ish after the big recession. I still give the man credit for the drop happening under his watch.
