    You see, Trump is playing (4x-3y)^2=5z Chess. He's really going to stick it to those swamp people by cutting expenditures over a decade, you know, after he's out of office and the Republican Party is still in control because Trump supporters will have elected fiscally-responsible members in both chambers of Congress, and then we'll also have low illegal immigration because his wall will not only stave off illegal immigrants, but it will be paid in full because Congress will be responsible enough to balance a budget, and the Democrats will realize that Trump's spending cuts really helped the economy, in the long run.

    I'm all for buying gold, silver, etc. and investing in industries all over the world. My point is that Trump isn't interested in exposing and curtailing what the Federal Reserve is doing to our money supply, even by a simple audit.

    No, actually, it's not a derailment because the point is that Joe Walsh has missed the point entirely. It's not a Socialist versus a con man; it's a Socialist versus a Socialist. Period. The video that was posted at least illustrated how Trump's tax policies did nothing to strengthen the purchasing power of the Dollar. But, of course, you missed that point because you just wanted to go on an apologetic rant for Trump. Also, I didn't advocate electing Sanders, and I don't believe things are lost. My belief is that whether we elect Trump or a Democrat, we're stuck with Socialism moving forward. Trump is just driving us off the cliff by "following the Speed Limit," whereas someone like Sanders would drive like we're on the Autobahn.

    Right, because you don't want to deal with root causes and have to face the fact that Trump's Socialst, monetary policy is destructive to his fiscal policies.

    You know what's stupid? Someone defending a person who calls for cuts to interest rates from the Federal Reserve, which increases inflation even more. Trump has attacked the Fed, not for its QE utilizations, but because they aren't willing to drive interest rates even lower than they are now.

    That's a lie. If Trump truly wanted countries to "pay their fair share," then why didn't he honor Iraq's resolution to have U.S. troops leave their country, and go through with his sanction to have Iraq pay the U.S. back for the air base there?

    We're not going to get rid of Socialism by electing more "Donald Trumps." People like him have no intention of shrinking the size and scope of the federal government, and just because they take a longer time to bring us towards a full socialist society doesn't make them better than others who would step on the pedal to it. They're both heading in the same direction, just at different speeds.

    It starts by repentance, turning away from ideas and principles which we know aren't going to advance the preservation of God-given rights. Clinging to individuals and organizations which hold to views that are contrary to preserving our rights (such as rights to own whatever firearms we wish, rights to the fruits of our labors without government interference for its own unbiblical and unconstitutional ends, etc.) don't rid us of Socialism. In fact, they drive us closer to it, by increments.

    Where did I say anything about giving up? Choosing not to be involved with the Republican Party doesn't equate to surrendering. There are other parties out there, after all, with better platforms and more principled members, looking for support. That's also not to mention that there are local, county, and state elections which are more important than just federal ones. But you're the one out here trying to rape a political party that doesn't want your ideas inside her. What's even worse is that you're compromising little by little on your own principles, all in the name of "trying to save the party," by settling for less. You keep bringing up this defeatist notion about "someone coming in to take over what's yours," and yet, ironically, that's what you're doing from the perspectives of those in control of the Republican Party. So, by your logic, what should the neoconservatives do to keep people like you from taking over what's now theirs?

    I know the tests the CDC believed were reliable were showing inconclusive results as part of its trial period, and they had already been sent to numerous states. There are also cases of nCoV where people have remained completely asymptomatic - rare, but still. There is a patient in China who had a presumed 19-day incubation period and remained asymptomatic. Even chest CT images showed nothing abnormal. Finally she tested positive with her SECOND RT-PCR test (even the first of this was negative) from a nasopharyngeal swab. Then you have cases of reinfection, too.

    In a free market, you stop supporting a product/service whenever the quality or price of that product/service doesn't suit your demand. That's when you find another good product/service that's in competition and meets your demand. That's the beauty of voluntary associations. There comes a point where an organization becomes so far removed from its core principles or promises that it no longer is worthy of patronage. It has become so corrupt that trying to clean up its corruption becomes a waste of time. The Republican Party is just at that state. You can stay and try return them to their principles, values, etc., but it will only be rape. They don't want certain views and ideas to permeate their party, and the infrastructure is such that they fend off any reformation that seeks to usurp their power. That doesn't produce any tangible results, either. The fact that Ron Paul Forums, of all places, is infested with Trump supporters reveals whom has influenced whom in the Republican Party. It's not the neoconservatives who have compromised on their principles; it's those who claim to be Ron Paul supporters. You haven't changed a thing in the Republican Party, but the party has changed you. This isn't Ted Cruz Forums. This isn't Ben Carson Forums. This isn't Mike Huckabee Forums. This is Ron Paul Forums. I'm not going to apologize because we're in a place where there's a high standard of expectation for consistency in the principles of small government, sound money, a noninterventionist foreign policy, and most of all, the protection of human life at all stages of development. You guys have forgotten where you are. Supporting candidates like Donald Trump is not going to change a damn thing on the federal level because people like Donald Trump don't care about libertarian principles. They say what they want to get what they want, plain and simple. Some of you are so desperate to be relevant on the federal level that you're willing to eat the crumbs on the floor of the Republican Party. And in chewing on their scraps, they ignore you to go about business as usual, waiting every 4 years to give you a plate at their table just to remind you of "what a good boy you've been." So, like our Founding Fathers did when they dissembled themselves from England and formed their own independence, there is no retreat; there is simply the reemergence of a better order, founded on sure principles in which the last organization failed to uphold or ended up hating.

    No. I can't find any document where any of the Founders attributed their ideas of a free, Constitutional republic to other religious worldviews such as Humanism, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, or any other one. They were pretty zealous that they founded the country on the principles of the Christian Faith. I think they feared more of one denomination becoming the dominant sect over the federal government than they were of another faith (like Humanism or Islam) taking over.

    That makes absolutely no sense. Why would a Muslim join a political party with explicit Christian beliefs in its platform? They could just form their own Sharia Party instead. But if you change the language to just "religion," then that opens the door to all sorts of religions, besides Islam. And based on whose religious beliefs become the majority view within that party, all due to the idea that "freedom of religion" is just a blanket statement for the inclusion of all religious beliefs, then it could very well evolve into a party of Sharia law advocates. But our founders didn't define "religion" in the general sense that we understand today. In their time, "religion" was synonymous with "denomination" or "sect," within the context of Christianity. There's simply no way our founders would have interpreted "religion" as giving way to what they would call "Mohammedans," in some general idea of "religion." That's just anachronistic.

Your work is in vain.

    The reason why the CP is so small is because so many conservatives think that a vote for the CP is a vote for the Democrats. That mentality is the whip which the GOP uses to keep conservatives in check and loyal to their party, which does not have their principles in mind, especially as it relates to the sanctity of life. The GOP doesn't need to change its position on anything because it understands that as long as it does "the dog & pony show" for conservatives and "whisper sweet nothings into their ears" during Presidential campaigns, they'll never leave for parties like the CP. Like I've told you before, you're being played by the Republican Party, and you refuse to see it because you've compromised your ethics, Swordsmyth.

    He's not getting us out because if that was his intention, then he could've done it by now. I don't want to hear your excuses why he didn't, either, because at this point, you're nothing more than a Trump apologist. If Trump does get us out of Afghanistan, then that's a step in the right direction, but it's only a fraction of a start. I don't need new reasons to hate Trump because I don't hate Trump. There are plenty of reasons to show that he's not as conservative as people like you try to paint him out to be, from his approval to continue funding Planned Parenthood to his asinine appointments, such as John Bolton.

    Trump is evil because he doesn't honor his oaths, which makes him a liar. When he makes decisions, he doesn't consult the Constitution, and furthermore, he doesn't listen to the wisdom from God's word (you know, that Book that Trump claims is his favorite book in the world). If a man can't keep his word, then he's not worthy of high praise and regard. Period. And Donald Trump has not upheld his oath of office to support and defend the U.S. Constitution, especially in matters of foreign affairs. So, I'll say again that Donald J. Trump is evil, and if you can't see that, then you've compromised on your ethics. No one is saying that Christians shouldn't work with Republicans and sinners, but there needs to be an objective standard by which any policy initiative is justified by a Biblical standard of limited government, protection of privacy and property, and especially, the preservation of life.

    He's not "draining the swamp" by hiring "Swamp Things." If anything, he's creating a precedent that his administration acknowledges the legitimacy of there being a "swamp." This is how I know that Trump isn't going to drain anything in Washington D.C.: right now, as Commander-in-Chief, he has the power to bring home all American troops overseas, which as a result, will get the U.S. out of all the foreign entanglements and unconstitutional wars that Trump claimed he was against. Yes, I understand that transitions would need to take place, for he couldn't do it all in one day; however, he definitely can plan it out within, say, a five-year period. If Trump were to plan such a feat, the "swamp" would be draining like a vortex, because that initiative would quickly get all of the neoconservatives (from both parties) in D.C. to rally against him. And if Trump is as big and bad as he thinks he is, and if he's serious about maintaining his foreign policy commitments that our wars have been mistakes, then the entire "swamp" coming against him shouldn't be something he can't handle, especially as a Commander-in-Chief. But, instead, he has us occupying the same foreign lands that we've always had, even extorting a nation who passed a resolution to have us leave their lands because of his actions to shed blood on their soil. So, no, Trump isn't going to do any "real deals" to get us out of positions where we get caught up in the civil affairs of other nations who are not under our Constitution, and therefore, have no direct relation to our country's national defense. He's playing people like you, dannno, because you're a pawn on his alleged "3D Chessboard."
