    I don't care how much they borrow, as long as they (the government) are responsible for paying it back. Maybe they will go bankrupt and go out of business. Leave those who don't want to support government alone.

    :rolleyes: Says the guy that injects a discussion about whether a libertarian would buy a good made by a communist into a thread about H1B visas. If there isn't 1 American receiving "it"? What is "it"? An H1B visa? By definition no American can receive "it." And whether there is a market for an American doing the job is irrelevant. The question is are there qualified Americans ready and willing to take the job? If the job specs are for a PhD in quantum physics and all of the American born quantum physics PhDs are not looking for a job, then while there is certainly a "market for an American doing the job", there's not a qualified American in the market to do the job. The "side note" really has no relevance to the thread and was basically a baseless attack on libertarian thinking with no rhyme or reason to it. Writing is fundamental. I suggest you work on yours.

    Please visit your local state university, find out how many STEM PhDs are going to Americans, and get back to us once you pull your jaw up off the floor. What is "utterly bizarre" is that you engage in a thread that is specifically about U.S. vs foreign workers and then try to pretend that we aren't talking about U.S. vs. foreign workers. But if you want to engage in silliness, go right ahead. Sorry for actually trying to take you seriously.

    Only if they lose their primaries to pro liberty candidates. And for that to happen, Trump needs to be on the side of liberty, or his supporters need to wake the hell up. Sadly I wouldn't bet on either of those two possibilities occurring. Face it. The RINO's won the 3D chess match because we as a movement came to believe that every time liberty principles were violated somebody was playing "3D chess." Yes I know, Rand's good and all that. But many people here, for some odd reason, cannot tell the difference between someone who's been pro liberty his whole life playing a role to get teocon votes and someone who's been a progressive his entire life playing a role in the opposite direction to get teocon votes. Folks here get angry when you point out that in 2000 Trump was openly calling for an assault weapons ban.

    Maybe they actually want to...I don't know...higher Americans when they can? :rolleyes: You pushed the cynical view that libertarians are so awful that all they care about is the bottom line and have no sense of community, and yet you're perfectly willing to just have all of the jobs go to foreigners instead of just some? Rather self defeating don't you think? Not really. You said: Poll idea: how many libertarians would buy something at twice the cost to support another libertarian in favor of purchasing it cheaper from a communist? I have a feeling the result would be depressing. That poll, in the context of this thread, depends upon H1B visa holders being somehow "less libertarian." Maybe well educated people coming over from India to get a good paying high tech job are more libertarian than native born Americans. Then if you give the job to the Indian you're giving it to the libertarian.

    Yeah.....but in this case who would they have to "fight?" GOP congressmen are supposedly being "overwhelmed" by astroturf pro Obamacare demonstrators. So why aren't the tea party types counter demonstrating? I think it's because of a feeling that "we won already" so...why go protest? That and once the tea party received self appointed leaders, people quit doing spontaneous rallies and now everyone is waiting for "orders from headquarters." The same happened to the Ron Paul movement. In 2008, getting a 500 to 1,000 person rally even in a small city like Nashville was as easy as pointing out the call on Meetup.com. Now? Pulling together 20 people anywhere is difficult.

    Believe or not, Beck is actually sounding sane these days. I heard a really good Beck show yesterday talking about how you have more power to effect real change than you think. And he had a progressive on and they had a *gasp* dialog and realized there was a lot of common ground in the same manner that Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich found common ground.

    I will pose you two different scenarios. Pick one. The background scenario is a new robotics startup that has a need for PhD level engineers to solve tricky problems in machine vision and machine learning. This company is having trouble filling these positions. Scenario 1: The startup fills them using H1B visa holders who just graduated from U.S. universities. (Again most of the STEM PhD's at U.S. universities are foreigners.) The startup flourishes and highers lots of Americans to do various tasks that don't require engineering PhDs. Scenario 2: The H1B visa program is killed, the foreign born PhD students return home, the startup relocates to India or China. Which scenario do you choose and why? Edit: And why do you believe H1B visa holders are more likely to be communists than native born Americans?

    Okay. But why is that? It seems the more powerful a grassroots movement becomes the least power the grassroots actually have. Trump can rightly be seen as the culmination of the Tea Party...which subsumed the Ron Paul movement....which subsumed the truther and liberty movements. More "power" but less influence. Look at Obamacare. The meme being pushed by the MSM is "If republicans trash Obamacare they face angry crowds back home." Well...what happened to the angry crowds from a few years back demanding the end of Obamacare?

    For slander against someone who is not a public figure you don't have to prove that the person making the allegations knew they were false, only that they were negligent in their regard for the truth. So, here's the million dollar (literally), question. Is a YouTube "celebrity" a "public figure?" And here's the catch-22. The more famous someone is on YouTube the more money he tends to make, so at one phase of the trial his lawyer would have to argue "Of course he's not a public figure. He just streams video games for the fun of it", but then, if he won, at the damages phase he would have to argue "He was a rising YouTube megastar and he lost future earning potential of X million dollars!" http://www.dmlp.org/legal-guide/proving-fault-actual-malice-and-negligence

    Rather than fight Donald Trump at every turn, Massie "saves his powder" by not directly attacking the man, but attacking bad policies put forward by the man, like Trumpcare. Praising Trump for the one arguably good thing Trump has done during these 100 days, nominating Neil Gorsuch, keeps Massie popular with the people that voted for him and Trump while at the same time not endorsing anything else Trump has done.

    "Conservative" supreme court pick John Roberts upheld Obamacare. Enough said. Well...no. Not enough said. Yes it's nice that we had a better pick than what Hillary would have done. But that would have happened even in Jeb Bush had become president. We have no idea what will ultimately become of Gorsuch. Time after time supreme court pics have ultimately disappointed those who pushed for their nomination. We'll see what happens this time. In the meantime the TSA is groping more than ever before.

Government just gets biggerer and biggerer. Both Obamacare and the border wall are anti liberty big government boondoggles. And I'm not talking about liberty of foreign nationals. I'm talking about liberty of U.S. citizens. There is a constitution free zone along our borders already. A wall will only make it worse. The current wall (yes part of it was already built) infringes on the private property rights of U.S. citizens who's property was seized to build the stupid thing. It cuts their land in half!

    Ah yes, great, the courts can simply conspire to keep all cases that do not toe the statute quo line, unpublished and out of public consideration. Yea, nice! Yea, because this is what Tasers are for, shooting people in the back as they run away from you. This is not unreasonable at all, forget about chasing after them, too much effort there, just draw, fire, bag and tag, then go enjoy your paid vacation.

  8. Sorry, but you have failed. That verse does not contain the words "Grace is irresistible." You can interpret it that way, but that's not what the verse says. You had to admit there was "relational language" in the Bible. Yet you have stuck to your guns that there isn't a verse that says "Have a relationship with Jesus." Likewise there is no verse that says "Grace is irresistible." If you were honest you would simply admit that. But you aren't honest.
