    Devaluation of the dollar? That's true, it was. But look at this graph, and ask yourself if you can see anything notably different in Trump's tenure. Be honest. https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/M1REAL

    Yeah, Democrats are strictly focusing on whether Biden can win the election and how he will affect down ballot races. They are not the slightest bit concerned about any dangers owe will all be living under for the next 6 months if he remains in office even now.

    Absolutely. Or better yet, remove them completely. This would instantly solve the alleged illegal immigration problem.

    In the very quote that you're replying to I said "legally and illegally." Very often this is not the case. Very often there is no legal path available for them to come here. Most illegal immigrants would come here legally if they could. They resort to coming illegally because our laws have made it impossible for them to come legally even if they are coming here to work.

    Some still do. But if the number has decreased, I doubt that's the reason. Superior? I take it you think these things actually improve those countries? I think your observation that it's getting close now in the US is germane. The increase of government intervention in the market in the US has made the US less appealing to immigrants from other first world basically capitalist countries. The places that have the most people desperate to come here are the communist countries that have been more ravaged by big government than we have been yet.

    This is an underappreciated aspect to the illegal immigration debate. Any serious attempt to control immigration will always require subjecting everyone within the borders to ongoing enforcement methods. Just trying to stop border crossers at the border (whether it be with a wall, the military, or anything else) will never be sufficient, or even the most effective tool for the immigration restrictionists.

    I don't buy this. There are plenty of reasons people immigrate, legally and illegally, aside from wanting welfare. In fact, I think there's a good chance that eliminating the welfare state would transform the US in ways that would make it a more attractive place to immigrate for very many people, rather than less.

    I know I'm preaching to the choir, but when noticing this, it's always good to ask why. There is an audience for whom Biden and his people see this as a big sales pitch that will pay dividends for them, and that audience isn't the voting populace.

    I agree. I think back to that exchange when Pence publicly said that red flag laws should not run the risk of people having guns taken away without due process, and Trump had to shut him down right then and say, "take the guns first, do due process later." Trump does not want a VP who will challenge his positions like that. Whoever he picks, it is going to be either a big government advocate like himself, or someone who is mindlessly loyal and can be counted on to parrot Trump's talking points without the risk of mixing in original thoughts.

    It's sad that the wording of this challenge requires that it be clarified just what kind of strokes he means. There are three options I can think of that all would fit the context of Joe Biden playing golf.

    Harris isn't really in a position to make any demands. It's not like they need her approval to not nominate her as VP. She didn't win the primaries. Only Biden did.

    I just don't see that. Quality as a candidate is a function of the skills that candidate possesses. I have never seen evidence that Michelle possesses those skills. Yes, she can get some mileage from her name, from getting propped up by others who have those skills, and from a large number of pure anti-Trump votes that any Democrat would automatically get. But the candidate who would be most likely to pull off a win has to be one who can give a good speech at the convention, handle themselves in a debate, and win over voters personally with their own charisma, not just that of their spouse, on the campaign.

    IMHO, if you were to list every possible Democrat candidate in order of their likelihood of being the candidate, Biden is still the top person on the list.

    So an anti-freedom VP pick would push you away from voting for the ticket, but an anti-freedom candidate at the top of the ticket wouldn't?

    I think there is an essential difference between a miniature city state that is confined to contiguous fully occupied land and a very large one. The difference is not just in size. I also think this claim relies on a debatable definition of a state. Ideally all participants in an HOA voluntarily and explicitly sign contracts agreeing to the arrangement. A state on the other hand is, by definition, imposed on people without their consent through violent coercive means. States originate by violent conquest and they maintain their power by the sword. It may be that HOA's have a tendency to cross ethical lines into being state-like, but this is not inherent to them.

    But HOAs are small areas of land that are completely filled by occupied parcels and their appurtenant streets, parks, right-of-ways, and other such things. And rightly so. The ethical justification for putting up a wall around such an area can't be extrapolated to justify putting one up around a land mass the size of the USA, complete with all its empty and unused land.

    I see what you did there. But my point was that the phrase "high crimes and misdemeanors" in the Constitution is not limited to things that are illegal. Immoral acts that might qualify as high crimes and misdemeanors for the POTUS might be things that Willie Nelson could do and not be answerable for them to anyone at all except his own conscience and his Creator.

    Is there something in the quote that you disagree with? And have you read it in context? If so, how does the context change your understanding of what he meant? I'm not sure why you keep bringing up JBS. I've never said a bad word about them. Nor have I ever said a word in favor of the UN or any other international organizations.

    Yep. And the longer Biden draws this out, the more high up Democrats will join that chorus. It will continue until he caves, which he is bound to eventually. There's nothing he can do to win them back over, because his cognitive decline is real, and getting worse by the month. If any Republicans tried to do this to Trump, it would be political suicide for them. Like it or not.

There is nothing to fear from globalism, free trade and a single worldwide currency, but a globalism where free trade is competitively subsidized by each nation, a continuous trade war is dictated by the WTO, and the single currency is pure fiat, fear is justified. That type of globalism is destined to collapse into economic despair, inflationism and protectionism and managed by resurgent militant nationalism.
