    Yes, I know (which is why I keep screaming that vouchers won't solve anything...but no one listens.) One more observation: I went to school before the Dept. of Education existed (yes, I'm that old, LOL) The indoctrination you see today wasn't there. In fact, if there was any indoctrination going on, it would be indoctrination skewed to the belief system that most hold here on RPF: extremely pro-America, mostly pro-white America (I live in the Deep South, formative years in the 1960s), anti-gay America (again, not very progressive Deep South), anti-abortion America, even anti-premarital sex America (or so they believed.) Yet, something broke down because we couldn't have gotten from there to here if we'd stayed the course. There had to be something else -- media, political parties, something...driving the agenda to allow schools to push that agenda, that indoctrination that goes on now. But media can't take our freedoms away, they can only influence. And schools may indoctrinate or educate; but they don't legislate. Only politicians can do that. That's where freedoms erode. The answer is clearly political parties and the monopoly they have on us....in my opinion.

    To those who answered "public education"....what excuse do you have for those who went to parochial and private schools who keep making the same dumbass choices over and over and over? For me, the answer is political parties.

    Johnson favors building new coal-fired and nuclear power plants. He supports private sector research and development of renewable energy, but does not believe doing so is the government's job While Johnson supported ending the Federal Reserve when questioned about the issue in an online town hall, Johnson only mentions three reforms of the Federal Reserve on his website "Conduct an audit to provide true transparency of the Federal Reserve's lending practices", "Establish clear Congressional oversight", and "Get the Federal Reserve out of the business of printing money and buying debt through quantitative easing." "Free markets and limited government are the foundation of prosperity." Johnson opposed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, and believes it should be repealed.He also opposed the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act, which he calls "the failed Medicare prescription drug plan," and believes it should be repealed. Johnson opposed the Iraq War since its beginning, and called for the American presence in Iraq to end.

    (Johnson) calls for abolishing not just the Department of Education but also the Department of Housing and Urban Development. “I do not know how you can have a discussion on cutting what we spend nationally without talking about military...Can we provide a strong national defense for our country and still reduce military spending by 43 percent?” asked Johnson. “My answer is: Yes. And the operative word would be ‘defense,’ as opposed to offense—as opposed to nation-building.” Johnson is also a fierce critic of the surveillance state, who thanked Edward Snowden at a 2013 “Stop Watching US: Rally Against Mass Surveillance” At the same rally, he declared, “There’s only one way to fix the Patriot Act, and that’s to repeal the Patriot Act.” He made his name as a passionate advocate for legalization of marijuana and he says, “Would the world be better off if all drugs were legal? Yes. The world would be better off, 90 percent of the drug problem is prohibition-related, not use related.” ​ http://www.thenation.com/article/could-an-anti-war-anti-surveillance-libertarian-be-the-biggest-beneficiary-of-trumps-takeover-of-gop/

    As stated before, my choice in November will be the LP nominee. I must have struck a nerve, look at all the misdirection going on. My point was, some are 100% with us, some are 100% against us, and some things are mixed bags. A is not B, and calling a mixed bag a 100% anything is pursuing a binary mindset, whereas pointing this out is not pursuing a binary mindset. You do realize the cartoon in the video was decrying the usual non-choice foisted on us by the kingmakers of puppet A versus puppet B, not the current election situation, where a rogue billionaire defeated all the A puppets, and is now going up against puppet B? Despite being a mixed bag, Trump found a way to engage a winning coalition and confront the elite, that we have not. Likewise, the NR article was a mixed bag, and Johnson is a mixed bag, as his social liberalism is not libertarian, and increasing state spending in NM over his term is not the same thing as reducing spending, as per fiscal restraint. I talked to Johnson at the recent LPNY convention about this issue, and he agreed he needed more help in navigating pragmatism and principle. He is overall libertarian in theme, and he is working on finding the winning coalition by pulling equally from what are normally Democratic and Republican universes. That is why he is in the double digits. Instead of obsessing in binary Manichaeism, we should be working from such successful examples and building a liberty strategy that works. This idea of a coalition is based on Republicans robotically voting for whomever the nominee is, which we see is problematic in the case of Trump, as it turned out to be for Romney and McCain. As with those previous election cycles, earlier polls do not dictate the fall results. Why do you expect either Paul, who in the primaries made no strong effort to engage social conservatives, or the outsider trend, or defeat the MSM/leadership obstacles, or to challenge the WOT premises of the war party, to automatically get those fall voters any more than McCain and Romney did?

    Jesus is not on that list either. He has called us to be faithful. not "way cool." But the comparison I made was not between Trump and Christ, but between Trump bashers and Pharissees. What is way cool about being legalistic? What that tells me is, if a mod gave you several warnings and infractions, while I got the +rep, that establishes the fact as to who is the troll. Ron's coalition with the paleos unified and optimized the liberty base vote (say 5-10% of the population), but made no inroads towards expanding its support beyond the base, where the 51% electoral victories are. Rand's dilution of "Ron Paul brand" (hmm? I thought we were about the liberty brand, not one political figure) centered on his defensive rhetorical tactics and attempt to accomodate the establishment, not on the broader coalition building needed to win over more voting blocs. Rand did none of the latter.

    You're sounding like somebody from the Sanhedrin, who would tell Jesus to "go through procedures" in order to be properly in their good graces. Whereas the truth is the outsider trend of 2016 is a Defensive / Strategic Purpose phenomena that already has benefited the liberty mission of the movement. That truth does not depend on a forum classification, regardless of the flawed procedure you are referencing to push a misleading binary view of the situation. I'm not participating in a flawed, or rigged game. There needs to be brand progress. Analyzing a candidate's STRATEGIC value to the movement, not just his current positions, needs to be included in the brand going forward, in light of the three national defeats just experienced, where our candidate made no strategic progress towards either building a winning coalition, or in defeating establishment barriers to liberty. Saying "what the man represents is not what the forum and liberty needs to be associated with" is the reason for the fighting, because it ignores we need to add a strategic component to the brand. A few people here want to keep us stuck at 2007 (ignoring the three defeats, and never building coalitions), while others do not, so the dispute over our future path is constructive and relevant.

    Rather, the correct term for your position is "smear artist." I have gained hundreds of rep points in the last few months based on my comments on Trump, including many from Bryan. That is not the mark of trolling, so your judgment is flawed. Or else I should disregard the very incomplete analysis that was done, and the irrelevant classification system that was created to deal with a non-existent problem, based on what I have already outlined, like other members have done.

    He has said otherwise, by indicating in past threads it is reasonable to class Trump in the "Defensive / Strategic Purpose - candidates" category. The main point is there are more than two categories, and people can reasonably disagree as to which one a candidate falls under. E.g., the analysis quoted only demurred from a decision about the future impact of a candidate vis a vis the mission, whereas the view that Trump falls under the defensive category can be based on what he has already done to strategically further the mission. And demurring about concluding what Trump's future impact may be, is not the same thing as concluding he is in the "non-supporting" category.

    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.
