    Ending racism bit is me interpreting her words. This is why I ask that you actually watch the clip, its 2 mins long and you can easily get the idea she is trying to impart on the audience. She mainly try to say, "see, the free market are so fervent in their dislike of discrimination that they stamp it out immediately. Again, I implore you, give the clip 2 min of your time. Yes, I like consistency too but if the message you are trying to impart is that the free market abhors discrimination, how would highlighting a story about private enterprise winning a landmark case on discrimination help that case?

    Main character might be a bit strong to describe her smallish role in the movie. But yes, there was a character Valarie that was being oppressed by the state for her sexual identity. Also, I bet anyone would be angry if the state came after them. Remember the guy that refused to salute Hitler in the pic? nobody accused his of being angry, even though he was pulling a dull face in the pic. So yes, it has a minor lesbian character that faced oppression from the state

    Now you are just being ridiculous, most unlibertarian candidate because she suggested that the private sector might be better at dealing with racial discrimination than the govt? cos you know that was the point of the whole exercise. And the part I think is pandering is with the idea that she is omitting the part about some segment of this sector being very accommodating to racial discrimination. Sorry mate but every politician panders to the voters to some degree and this is about the most inconsequential form of pandering I have ever seen. Yes, she isn't going to win but she is hoping to make gain over the last guy that ran. Btw, the last guy that ran supported humanitarian wars and for some weird reasons that doesn't make him the most unlibertarian candidate ever Going out of her way to highlight a court case that says its was OK for private corporations to discriminate would be her going out of her way to make trouble for her campaign ala Rand's Rachel Maddow interview. You guys are making a huge deal out of this issue. Again, she did NOT praise the company that fired their employee that made an all lives matter post on facebook.

    I think she was trying to promote the idea that the free market would punish and end racism. This idea has also been promoted by Ron Paul but I don't buy it. Racism can be promoted and profit by private corporations. Its actually not true what she is saying she says it to pander to the voting public. If you tell people that racism can exist and even thrive in the free market and then you might lose the popular vote, so they make shyte up. I wish she had not used the example she used because of issues like this but please go and watch the clip itself, reading the transcript alone doesn't do it justice. You will understand what she is getting at if you actually watch it. She will not go out and defend the govt's ability to discriminate, remember she is still trying to win hearts and mind. It would be a death sentence for her to do such a thing. And if she goes out of her way to bring it up then I am out, it would be a sign to me that she really isn't serious about winning

    I hope they don't say anything crazy about V for Vendetta :) I still like the Matrix. I wonder if this is their attempt to undermine the message of the movie?

    I think libertarians have been spoiled by Ron Paul that they now expect every new libertarian leader to be in the manner of Ron Paul and anything less will elicit a complaint and add that to the Trump fan bois and Libertarian party hater and you get this loud noise of complaint concerning anything they do. Listen to the clip while following the flow of the conversation and it is easy to see that what she was never praising the particular act of the firing.

    I don't think so, she was just talking about how the free market can prevent discrimination better than the federal govt. Essentially saying that the free market unlike govt in their pursuit of the almighty dollar will be more responsive to their customer which in turn will eliminate generalized discriminations.

    You are right but she did not praise the firing per say but rather the private company's response to perceived discrimination. Btw, I wish she didn't use that example because she did not articulate well and leave her open for attack by her detractors. If you listen to the clip you can get the idea that she think the firing was absurd with her emphasizing how it was done in private and how no customers were harmed. My point is that she did not praise the firing and that is what the OP would like you to believe. Any reason no matter how disingenuous to get us back into the D/R plantation

    From the sound of it, it seems like he wants to take a long vacation, like he is tired stiff of all the DC BS. Then again, if a president is truly fearful of an attempted assassination, why drop non specific clues like this? Its not like it is strong enough to thwart said assassination, cos if god forbids he is assassinated tomorrow, I wouldn't look back at this video as some form of foreshadowing.

    https://www.c-span.org/video/?c4893136/user-clip-jo-jorgensen-praises-company-firing-employee-posting-all-lives-matter-private-facebook This is the video, please watch it with the libertarian party hate shades off. The bigger point she was trying to make is that private companies unlike govt run companies are more responsive to discrimination. She wasn't praising the particular act but rather the speed as a desire for private companies not to offend(I can't think of a lesser SJW word at the moment) their paying customers. That was the point of the discussion, just so you knows, this 2 min clip is from a 1 hr interview and this is all the haters can find to smear the lady with. Not bad at all if you asked me. One will probably find at least a half dozen objectionable points in a Joe/Donald 1 hr interview

    Weird how none of you guys will post the video link of the interview. A 1 hr ish interview where she was trying to explain how private companies are more responsive to their customers is being used by liberty haters to smear Jo. When you actually see the context and the way she said it, none of you guys will be posting these articles, this is me assuming that you people have an honest bone in your bodies. Post the video link please, the truth is out there.

    I listened to the interview and she did not praise the firing, she merely brought it up as an example of how private companies are more responsive to discrimination. I would have made sure to clarify it had I been in her shoes especially knowing that there are people like you looking for a reason to discredit her. Listen to the video, its on youtube and you will get the context behind her bring up the example

    Trump gives big pharma $1 billion to develop a vaccine and in a few months, govt will gift out another $2.5 billion to buy said vaccine from big pharma. I know Trump is better than Hillary but at this point, I fail to see how much difference it makes my life. To me, the 2 are going to the same destination, but Trump drives a few m/hr slower.

    His position? it was an off the cuff remark about smoking as someone is blowing smoke in his face. Sorry but I am not going to holding him on that position. Also he qualified it with the idea that e cigs are a better alternative that regular cig which it is. Btw, that better alternative e cig is being attacked by the current admin with their roll out of regulatory decrees and fatwas against e cigs. Also, Ron Paul is not perfect of close to it, remember when he went to the UN to enforce some copy right laws? I can name a few other reasons why a principled libertarian should stay away from Ron Paul. Regardless of his or Paul's flaws, it is evident that they were going to be a big improvement over what the R and D has to offer.

    Take in Syrian refugees. Check Remain in UN. - Check TPP supporter. - He supports free trade agreements and so does the people in the WH - half check On the bright side, all these lockdowns and police state going on right now under Trump probably wouldn't have been signed off by a Gary Johnson admin. So yea, Trump will talk the talk and mouth off against Dr Fauci but at the end of the day, he does as he is told by the facists in govt. He has donated tax payers money to the tune of $10 billion plus to develop a vaccine which they will in turn buy back with other stolen tax payers money.

    This but I think his detractors will always find a new reason not to vote for him. They will never judge him on the same criteria they use for Trump or any other mainstream republican they usually vote for every 4 years and that is my biggest problem with the anti Libertarian movement on this forum. They will nitpick any Libertarian candidate to death but turn a blind eye on the republican candidate's flaws

    On Carbon taxes Its actually true that he never raised taxes as Gov on New Mexico. Actions speak louder than words https://www.carbontax.org/blog/2016/08/30/gary-johnson-walks-back-his-carbon-tax-talk/ Banning cigarettes and affirmative action. Maybe on the former and negative on the latter.

    Defunding the police is NOT the same thing as abolishing the police. I guess that is the goal but he has not yet asked for the police to be abolished.

    enhanced_deficit does tend to post a lot of the same pics and posts in multiple threads and that can appear trollish regardless of whether you agree with him or not, but if you actually read the stuff he posts and the connects he makes, there is some relevance to the information he sends out.

    By tall tales, I meant to say lies, war propaganda told by the winners. It could have been the baby in incubator story that wasn't discovered, who really knows? The other portion is just my opinion. I think it means more when someone opposes an unjust law that haven't yet affected them than opposing a law after it has harmed them. Spartacus was impressive because he fought off trained armies stronger than his slave troops. The feat would have been impressive even if he was a ragtag band of thieves carving up the Roman army. Going against the state when you are comfortable and out of harms way to me will always be far less impressive than someone doing the same only after his back has been pressed against the wall.
