    I wouldn't be surprised if they had some folks here during the primary. But now? Rand is an afterthought, you think they're still paying people to mess with him? And for the record, I have had at least a half dozen accusations leveled at me of being CTR, Israeli Intelligence, a troll, etc, just for having slightly more moderate opinions than many others here. As far as I know, though, I am not a paid shill.

    They pay for stories. They've been burned by them before. Don't take my word for it, go find their covers from years past and tell me what % of cover stories ended up being accurate and how many are total bunk. Until someone corroborates the story today it's as good as pure fiction.

    With an article from the NATIONAL ENQUIRER. This newspaper, the one sold next to the BATBOY! edition of the Weekly World News. At least the Trump attacks have video and audio to go along with them, and it's not like the Clintons havent lived a public life...

    I voted for 'they should leave', but it's not that simple. I have nothing in common with most trump supporters, politically speaking we are polar opposites. Because Ron Paul and Trump are polar opposites, and I tend to agree with Ron on 75% of the issues. But then, my family of neocons, all happy Bush/Rubio voters in the primaries, are also shocked by Trump and wont be voting for him. Maybe if JUST the diehard trumpers are turned off and leave, it'll leave a more focused party that we can call Republican. THAT might be a party in which a liberty candidate could do well.

    Where is Trump demonstrably pro liberty? The man who is *sometimes* anti intervention is the same man who claims he respects women; a claim we all knew to be false from the time we all came to know who Trump was, decades ago. Thats why the 'pussygate' issue is actually important. It's just another example of Trump claiming to hold a belief, but in reality he practices the exact opposite. This is the man who is anti intervention, yet wants to "bomb the ****" out of ISIS, supported Iraq and Libya before he became a candidate, and wants to murder terrorists' relatives. The point of the liberty movement is to promote liberty, I thought. Trump is the exact opposite of that. He uses liberty-sounding rhetoric when convenient to drive him into office, just as he'll use barbaric and militaristic rhetoric when convenient.

    Can he post a version without him talking at the start and end? The tapes are great, but so many undecideds I know don't like the guy because they've been lead to believe the abortion series was fraudulently edited. This series is harder to deny, by far; I'm just worried people will turn it off when they see O'Keefe.

    Did Ron miss a chance to influence Hillary's platform? If your answer is "no", you have no reason to be angry. Ron has as much in common with Trump as he does Clinton. Trump is NOT FIGHTING THE ESTABLISHMENT. He is fighting for himself and himself only. If you vote for him you symbolically rebuke nearly every principle Ron stood for. You pointed out that Ron got a lot of support for his smackdown of Rudy and US foreign policy. You're right. 100% right. AND RUDY IS TRUMP'S CLOSEST ADVISER! So you liked Ron for smacking down Rudy, and now you like Trump who hold essentially the same views as Rudy. Plus, the topic Ron owned Rudy on was blowback, 9/11, and Iraq. Trump is on the polar opposite side on these issues. He was for Iraq, Libya, intervention in Syria, etc, before he was against them. Plus, listen to his rhetoric; is that how a non interventionist talks? Trump has fooled you. Just because media heads are shocked by his behavior doesn't mean he's 'anti establishment'. The media hated Bush II, too. EDIT: Ron has said as much and is 100% correct: “In some places, Trump is worse than the establishment. He says he loves torture! Trump is very conventional. He has nothing new when it comes to serious ideas.”

    Seeing the "optimism" that trump is still "winning" on here makes me feel better in one way.;it's not just us libertarian supporters who naively keep our hopes up, authoritarian supporters do too!

    They're absolutely correct. This election is over. It was over when trump was nominated, and announced as over when NBC decided it was time to leak the tape. Start looking down ballot and to 2020.

    Citation needed on the 1st word in the thread title... Wasn't there a similar incident last cycle, where the culprit was found to be a member of the party that did it, trying to gin up anger at the other party? Lets not be too quick to jump to conclusions when the republican nominee calls for violence on a regular basis (while Hillary merely conducts it behind the scenes, usually). It's just as likely to be either side at this point.

    I don't think it's odd at all that they're coming out now. They heard the man who allegedly did these things bragging on tape about doing these things. Then, they saw him get up on the debate stage and deny he'd ever done anything like what he had just bragged about. That would sure tick me off if he'd done that to me... Seriously. Does ANYONE here doubt Trump has done something like this? He said he does; it's on the tape. He's demonstrated himself to be lustful and unable to control his behavior. Anyone who didn't see this coming just from common sense is out of their mind.

    "They go poll site to poll site" didn't give it away to you? I witnessed such "bussing" being done by Long Island republicans in 2010 when I was working a state senate election. It does happen.

    When Trump gets obliterated in just about a month from now, no "outsider" candidate is going to stand a chance for decades to come. That's outsider in the employment sense, and in the ideological sense. Trump has destroyed any hopes the Liberty movement had at the presidency; we'd best keep looking to congressional races.

    I'm voting for gary BECAUSE of fundamentals. As president the few things he can do unilaterally are things I support 100%. The places where he's not "pure" enough for me are massive changes that would require congress and ARE NOT going to happen in the near future. Maybe after 4-8 successful years of a very moderated libertarian presidency under Johnson, though, a better/more pure candidate will run and have a chance.

    Hofstra, my alma mater, won! We have an anti-drug-war law school, and a new and open minded medical school. It's not just for Long Island Bros anymore! Edit: Not sure what to make of the trigger warning, though. Many things "triggered" me tonight... sexual assault was not one of those things, nor would I expect (nor could I imagine) it would be.

    "How does one "look" mean or vindictive? You just hate women"

    That's interesting, since I am a woman.

    It's called woman's intuition you ought to try it sometime. It's in her eyes--I have seen many more like her in my lifetime.

    In the same way that I allow mitigating factors for cops who don't realize their crimes are crimes, I do sort of make a mitigating factor for people who are so screwed over by the police state that they decide to get back at it in the ultimate manner, by lashing out and killing one of the State's own. Mind you, I didn't say it was OK. Only that its a mitigating factor

    To put it another way, I am not at the Cantwellian "its great when a cop dies" level. Its a tragedy when it happens, most of them are brainwashed drones who don't really know any better. At the same time, they are all hired muscle for the government and they have all, through their actions, created a perception that it is us against them. The absolute BEST thing a cop can be is an ignorant professional armed robber who is genuinely brainwashed enough to think he has a right to take what he takes. Do I think that means he deserves to die? No, I don't. But I also recognize that he's not innocent, that his crime is "legal", and that a lot of people have truly been screwed over by the gang he works for. To be continued.

    I guess I'm probably somewhere between you and AF. If that cop specifically was involved in smething egregious, I wouldn't even think about it, I would just automatically vote "not guilty." If it wasn't that particular cop, but some other cops, I'd honestly feel somewhat conflicted, because on the one hand, I would agree with you that such a random action would be wrong, but on the other hand, I wouldn't feel threatened by Frein, and to some extent it really is "us against them" and I want to side with my fellow citizens. Mind you, I don't think its "us against them" to quite the same absolute level that some people here think it is. But I think its undeniable that its true to some extent. That fact is at least partially, if not mostly, the fault of the police. I have a hard time with the idea of sending a man to prison for the rest of his life, or executing him, for a situation that is quite frankly at least partially the fault of the police.

    I agree that it was a crime, but for some reason (half-rational and half maybe not) I would be more upset had the victim been a civilian. I'm hesitant to say what the penalty should be without info. If he had been wronged by police in the past and that sparked this I might consider pardoning him or at least substantially reducing his sentence from what I'd normally support.

    jon, for the record, I'm actually on your side with regards to the discussion you are having with AF. I'm still working out my views but I lean toward agreement with you.

    I just brought up the kidnapping thing as a possible counter-point. In the OT it was a capital crime, and I don't see anywhere where that was abroggated like I do with the consensual sexual crimes and blasphemy and so forth. Mind you, I am not going to die on the hill of that particular penalty, but the point is that its at least questionable. Its not like kidnapping is something that is so minor that it would be unthinkable to deserve a death penalty.

    I agree on being against random violence. Revolution I could support in certain circumstances, although I think it would have to be of a secessionary nature for me to really get behind it. I could also get behind vigilantism against specific aggressors in specific instances, though I'm reluctant. I agree they shouldn't be targeted just for being cops.
