    I really don't get Trump supporters. To be "liberty-minded" is a packaged deal, encompassing many related and consistent positions on public policy towards the goal of less government intervention and more private entrepreneurship and charity. It's not just saying the right thing on one issue. Every time Trump says one thing that is even remotely close to a conservative or libertarian position, Trump supporters here rage on like, "Look! Trump is going to lead us towards liberty! Woooooooo!" forgetting the tens of other positions that Trump holds when it comes to things like eminent domain, stealing oil from other nations, using executive orders for his own means, and a slew of other non-liberty views. Forget Trump's rhetoric; look at his history of what he's stood for, used the government to do on his behalf, and how many times he's flip-flopped on issues. That's what counts.

    I understand that, UWDude. My point is that Dr. Carson has special expertise in the field of medicine in contrast to housing and urban development. In any case, I really don't trust Trump's appointments because they're all going to be bad for the States and the people. Trump will appoint individuals who believe that America's domestic issues and foreign interests must be solved, first, by federal intervention.

    I, too, enjoy using the King James (Authorized Version) Bible, and it has been my main translation since I was a young boy. In fact, several years ago, I would have almost considered someone a heretic if he didn't use the KJV. However, as we become older and, hopefully, more mature in our faith, we come to realize that many of the theological positions we used to hold were wrong. The exclusivity of the KJV is one of those positions, for me. Though I believe it to be the premium version for English-speakers, I also recognize that its language can become a stumblingblock for many people. Therefore, other translations have to be used for understanding, memorizing, and citing of God's word. So, I am not a "KJV-Only" person. Having said that, I find that the ministry website of the Trinitarian Bible Society has some very good information and insights about why the KJV still ought to be used as the standard version for English-speaking Christians and churches.

    Call me "biased," but I still prefer Dr. Paul's videos. There's nothing like good ol' fashioned substance and truth in a video for a Presidential candidate, without all the bells and whistles (no pun intended). Case in point:

    That depends on your worldview, particularly as it relates to whether human beings have souls or not. From a Christian worldview, no, consent is not always the precondition for any behavior. In fact, if God did not give us new hearts by the Holy Spirit ("being born again") to trust and follow Him, then no one would consent to believing in Him. That's because we're all born in sin, and our natural selves don't want anything to do with God, due to that sin nature. But once again, if one rejects the Christian worldview about the nature of human beings, then that person has to justify why pedophilia is objectively wrong, given the assertion that human beings are just biological machines subject to the laws of chemistry and physics. And to insert the need for consent in sexual behavior goes way beyond biology, chemistry, or physics. Otherwise, consent becomes an impossibility, or, at best, just something that is dependent upon impersonal and random material forces which no human being can control unto himself.

    1. This has always fascinated me. If the bill of rights wasn't included, the current perversion of federal power would be much greater. However by listing just 10 items, it goes contrary to the enumerated powers throughout the constitution. I don't understand how the bill of rights is your first example of a coup power grab. Please explain 2. The constitution did not let the federal government tax citizens, it could only tax the states equally. The states had power to form together and say no. Citizens cannot at this point. States also basically held the seats in the senate, how does that position equate to increasing federal power and not state power? 3. Of course there were critiques, there was debate on many sides of many issues for quite some time. You're still not explaining how there was a coup to give the federal government all this power as a direct result of the constitution. i feel it important to say, again, that I agree with you on the current lopsided power favoring the federal government. I'm just failing to see your point that this is a direct result of the constitution.

    we still agree. However the point made earlier is that the constitution originally written was a coup to grab much federal government power. Because Lincoln and others unconstitutionally seized power is not the same thing as the constitution authorizing it as a founders intent.

    that was an informative read but I think it proved my point more than yours. It addresses the state as being independent except in times of war for the collective states. It mentions the amendments that gives states and citizens power to abolish the federal government or alter it. And it addresses the enumerated powers of the federal government. We ageee on all that, but those all sound like ways to limit the federal government and not a power grab. Can you explain any better please?

    is anyone suggesting the federal government wasn't made to be stronger or more powerful under the constitution in relation to AoC? But why would a power grabbing coup offer limited and defined federal powers and include the 9th and 10th amendments? You can't suggest those things make the federal government more powerful can you?

    Believe it or not, one can be a patriot, and moral without even being a politically oriented person at all, let alone a consistent one, that's all I was saying. Your tying patriotism to being politically consistent is another example of the one-dimensional, position-centric POV that has limited our sub-movement, while the rest of the grassroots has grown.

    It means that nothing is going to change with foreign policy, monetary/fiscal policy, nor domestic policy. All of you who supported Trump are going to be disappointed.

    Hey, I'm kind of getting ticked off at the whole prostitution thread myself. And frankly, I'm getting a little frustrated with the libertines.

    I want prostititution legalized because I think its wrong to threaten government violence on people just because I don't approve of their behavior, because I don't want to pay to lock peaceful people (even if they're bad people) up, and because I think the best way to deal with sin (Unless its violent) outside of the church is to preach the gospel to sinners. Keep in mind how the Pharisees were angry with Jesus for eating with the prostitutes. He didn't ask the Roman government to criminalize them either.

    Some people here want prostitution legalized so that husbands and wives can cheat on each other. Its disgusting, and I don't condone that line of thinking At all I speak only for myself in that thread, and not every libertarian wants to legalize prostitution for the same reasons. SOmething to keep in mind.
