    When you use the "He's right you know" meme, if you're only talking about the part where we disagree on how libertarian Rand Paul is, you should probably delete the rest of the post if you don't really endorse the rest of what they are saying.. Pierz was attacking Rand Paul with distortions and at times outrageous slander, saying that they don't support Rand and trying to make him out to be an enemy of libertarianism, when in reality that is totally ridiculous. If you pay attention to Rand and what he is doing, you know he is fighting for us on all fronts. It is in our strategic interest to support Rand, whether we are small government conservatives, paleo conservatives, libertarians or anarchists. That's why most of us are here. It's pretty obvious that living in a free market with a 1% tax with a balanced budget and hard currency is preferable to living with an 80% tax and fiat currency and huge debts and socialism - even if both systems are immoral, one is clearly better and more worth living in than the other. If we can agree on that, then we can agree that doing what we can to reduce the size and scope of government and increase freedom is beneficial to our lives, even if it is not the final answer or best answer. Rand is a Constitutional Conservative, that is what he claims, and that is an accurate description. I said I personally consider him libertarian (you don't have to) because he is libertarian on every issue that pertains to what he is doing in DC, he votes libertarian, and libertarians are essentially Constitutional Conservatives, but not all Constitutional Conservatives are libertarian. Libertarians and I argue anarchists should support Constitutional Conservatives in general when it serves their strategic interests of reducing state power. There are a couple of minor and non-issues that Rand Paul isn't libertarian on, there is not any big issue that would be reason for a person not to support him or to even use to criticize him as not being a pure libertarian. It is ok to point these issues out, but they should not be emphasized because they aren't worth emphasizing or using to criticize in a non-friendly way. Rand is in the area where the libertarian spectrum starts to fade but I wouldn't say he is totally out of it. Like you said he could be considered a big "L" libertarian and if he claimed that title I wouldn't argue against him, but I can see how it doesn't serve his strategic interest in congress to be labeled a libertarian, Constitutional Conservative serves his strategic interests and he happens to fit well in that framework for someone who is largely pretty significantly libertarian. Now, we can argue what voting like a libertarian looks like. A libertarian would vote for a 0% income tax like Ron Paul said he wanted. Is voting for a reduction in taxes and spending, or even a freeze that will help balance the budget when you consider "baseline spending" goes up 5% a year? Well, it depends.. when the alternative is to increase spending and never balance the budget, I would say that is libertarian. There is no reason not to support Rand Paul at some level and it is foolish to actively attack him (friendly critiques are totally ok) - it serves your strategic interest to have Rand in the senate fighting for your freedom because he is trying to push the country in a more libertarian direction on every issue that really matters.

    lol.. more leftist BS you must have picked up from the MSM. Gay marriage is a non-issue, I'm straight and I don't want a government license to get married to a woman, if you are a libertarian then why the fuck do you care who can sign these contracts with the government? Why do gay people even need to get married? How does that give them freedom? Like I said, it's a non-issue and it helps him get votes in his district. Rand would love to make real cuts to spending more in line with what his father wants, but guess what? Rand knows that is not realistic. His strategy is to reduce government spending as much as possible, and he is WAY more effective at doing that than his father was. Sorry you don't understand his strategy, and I wish we had more people in congress like Ron Paul but the fact is we are nowhere near having enough to effect any real change so at this point the best we can hope for is to get people in there who can reduce spending and reduce taxes. Rand supported using violence against people who are being violent, who gives a fuck if the police shoot someone who is robbing a store or if a drone kills them? What difference does it make? If someone is involved in a violent crime and is taking away other people's rights, then it shouldn't matter how they are stopped. Should we not let police use tasers and only let them use six shooter revolvers? At the end of the day, I doubt Rand would vote for any federal spending on these drones, all he said was that legally they could do that because they are actively attacking people with violence, and they can. He might be willing to support using drones at the border for monitoring purposes, to protect our border, if it costs less, which many libertarians agree with since we have a huge welfare state. Rand does not support the war on drugs, he is ok with states legalizing cannabis.

    Maybe you should have actually watched the video I posted rather than -reping me, you could learn a lot. If you read my post, you would see that I thought it was good that King was anti-war, and that may have even been why he was killed by the CIA. But on the other hand, he was a huge promoter of socialism, which has completely destroyed the black community. 75-80% of black kids used to live in two parent households in the early part of the 20th century, now over 70% of black kids grow up in single parent households. That is a direct result of socialism. Kids raised in single parent households are much more likely to be violent and commit crimes and end up on welfare. That is a direct result of socialism. Stefan was correct that King's dream turned into the black community's nightmare, and it has turned everybody else into their slaves and we all suffer the negative effects to some extent. I consider Rand Paul a libertarian. He might not be 100% libertarian on all issues, but he is close enough and essentially votes as one. There is this whole thing related to curves and scales, someone who is essentially a libertarian is much better than someone who is extremely far from it. Trump is primarily listening to Judge Napolitano on who to select for the next Supreme Court Justice, so maybe you don't know Trump as well as you thought you did. Maybe you are just another person who was fooled by the leftist media.

    You are working off of faulty science that is decades old... I used to believe it too, but trust me it is total BS. You need to start looking at the newer science that is out. You might want to actually learn why heart attacks occur. Your arteries get clogged from arteriosclerosis and arterial plaque. This occurs due to inflammation, which is from eating too many grains and carbs and omega 6 fatty acids in vegetable oils. Dietary fat doesn't end up in your blood, dietary fat doesn't end up making you fat. Your body makes fat from carbs, and the fat in your blood (triglycerides) is due to eating too many carbs. My triglyceride levels are around 40. The doctor says to try and keep triglyceride levels under 150. I'll bet the whole fucking farm I have less fat (triglycerides) in my blood than you do, and I literally drink the stuff. My triglyceride levels are ridiculously low and I eat a TON of fat. My co-worker is asian, and he has a friend who is also asian and eats a lot of rice and his triglyceride levels are 500 or 600!!! It's a shame, but you literally have everything ass backwards. Now, you eat "real" food, you tend to eat "whole grains", so you aren't that bad off compared to most people but you're really doing yourself a disservice by not looking into the new science regarding all this stuff.

    Well read the quote I posted and get back to me about the asian thing, cause it's a really bad argument to say that asians eat rice and are healthier than americans therefore carbs are ok. It completely and literally ignores EVERYTHING else in the entire world. And if you think meat isn't nutritious, then you need to do some basic research on food. Rice literally has ZERO nutrition. So to argue that people should eat rice (which has NO nutritional benefits at all) and not eat meat (which is the most nutrient dense food on the planet) is really ridiculous.

    Yep, the Judge learned to control his weight. It's scary when you are overweight and you can't control it, I used to know the feeling. Now that the Judge knows he can lose weight anytime simply by cutting carbs, he can pay less attention to his diet and gain some weight (it's really hard to eat paleo when you're out and about all the time) and not have to worry about his weight getting out of control and having major health issues.

    Your reaction to the truth is to laugh.. very interesting. Nothing that Mark Scisson described about the asian diet was inaccurate. So you are literally laughing about the truth. Rice is a whole grain, and as you know whole grains are better than refined grains. Rice is the one grain that Mark Scisson will eat, on occasion, in small amounts, because it's in sushi. Otherwise there is no reason to eat rice, it has absolutely zero nutritional value. Most americans eat a bowl full of whole or refined grains for breakfast, they have sugary drinks and bread for lunch, they have bread and grains at dinner and they have starchy snacks throughout the day, sometimes even dessert. That is why Americans are fat. Asians are more healthy because they have an otherwise healthy diet, are more active and they happen to eat whole grains when they do eat grains, they only eat one type of grain and not as much in the way of starchy vegetables like potatoes. Their desserts and treats are much less sugary and sweet.

    Holy hell.. that's almost 80g of carbs right there. That is a full day's worth of carbs, if you wanna lose weight. If you had eggs and bacon for breakfast, that shake for lunch, and then low starch veggies and wild or pastured meat for dinner you could easily lose a lot of weight, that actually could be a pretty good diet. But if you're going to be eating a bunch of carbs with your other meals, then you are going to have to be pretty active if you want to lose or maintain your weight.

    Is it not acceptable to theorize (based on the hundreds of years of history of Roman Catholic persecution) about who might be the victims of that persecution today? If not, then I won't do it. But just remember....Jews, Atheists, and Christians were all victims of this tyranny.
