    He could not. He had promised not to. But as I say, he hasn't made that pledge lately. And honestly, the situation is much more favorable today than it was four years ago. For example, neither major party was running a full-on clown four years ago. Nor was either running an outright criminal. Now both are. That makes a difference.

    The very fact that he talks in terms of making America great again tells me he will do nothing of the sort. Calvin Coolidge presided over one of the greatest periods of growth and prosperity in America's history. He did not create that, and did not claim that he did. He got government out of the way of the people and let the people do it. Coolidge got it. Trump does not. And so long as Trump does not, he cannot duplicate Coolidge's success.

    I agree, except in this regard: Not all economic policy is foreign policy, and not all foreign policy is economic policy. You seemed to me to be blurring the line above, which is why I asked what I did. Garage sales may not be a major feature of economic policy, but are not unaffected by it.

    Yes, yes he does. But he leans toward the clown in some ways. And the field is very heavy with clowns this year. For once, being a clown is not the way to stand out. He also lacks relevant experience, and that will weigh heavy with many voters. Johnson is better in that respect, but worse in others. The nation needs a decent Libertarian Party choice this year, and the Libertarian Party needs someone like Ron Paul. I feel they must risk Ron Paul refusing, even if it does seem like a no confidence vote to the candidates they have. There is too much which could be gained if Ron Paul bowed to the pressure and allowed his hat to be thrown in the ring for him. And he might. After all, he did not promise not to run for a third party. He hasn't done that for four years now.

    I suppose this is how you view garage sales too? Are they also chipping away at sovereignty at home unless the sales are registered with the central bureau and proper sales tax paid on the transaction...? Just how much can we accomplish on our own initiative and without blessings from on high before we begin trampling on the sovereignty of our nation? Must we fill out forms and send them to Washington to borrow a handkerchief when our nose is runny?

    Yes. Or, at least, I'm sure he sincerely believes so. But if drafted, will he not run? I think the theory should be tested.

    Hate to say it, but the LP ought to draft Ron Paul. He has name recognition, relevant experience, and proven integrity. With all of that, the Libertarian Party could do well. As in unprecedented, extraordinarily, magnum opus well. 2016 is just shaping up to be that kind of year. All that is needed is for the party to get the attention it deserves. And Ron Paul could accomplish that like no other.

    You missed the point. The point is, if you help people discover that the right to build your life is stolen and we have already given our lives up to the machine, despite the tons of propaganda designed to obscure that, then you can do something about it sooner, and you have more help when you do. More importantly, you have had a chance before that moment to teach people what they are fighting for. Which is important, because if you don't you wind up watching everyone fighting to get something even worse.

    All this hamster wheel talk is a cute analogy but does it mean anything? The bulk of Americans will believe the system is fried when they finally decide to turn to a genuine anti-Establishment candidate and their will is denied. So, the way to that end is to work toward a consensus that we need to elect someone completely not approved by the media. Once we elect that candidate but the powers that be tell us to our faces that we did not, it's on. Until then, you are just a voice in the wilderness, one raging against the machine. A one-man revolution begging for a rubber room and a diet of thorazine. If you can't help bring on that proof that this is no longer a republic, the least you could do is have the courtesy to stay out of the way.

    Now that the thread was combined with another thread on the topic, so we don't have to repeat ourselves and get deja vu all over again, are we sure there's still a problem? Do you consider the OP's 'oh my little thread is now just the tail end of a big thread' whine to be something actually worth addressing?

    I think that's more intervention than God is willing to provide, Gunny. But if that were to happen at the LP convention, suddenly the LP would have a candidate with a reputation for integrity, relevant experience, and name recognition too.

    Not even close, kid. It just looks that way because the Trump people spam here day and night--almost as if they're earning a living at it, so they don't have to stop and go to work because they're already there. Which is what I was saying in the other thread about giving alternative viewpoints a chance to be heard over the Official Noise.

    Ron Paul needs to carry out Trump's threat. Last I checked, what's sauce for the goose is still sauce for the gander. Ron? If you accepted the Libertarian Party nomination, they'd actually have a candidate!

    Read my comments again. The reason a site which is dedicated to giving alternative points of view a place where they can be heard might censor some input is simple. If it does not, the powers that be need only hire a hundred full time spammers and those alternative viewpoints will be drowned out within the day--and forevermore. If forum slide is a term you are unfamiliar with, you might consider getting familiar with it so that you can continue to participate in this conversation in an intelligent manner. These things are a genuine concern. And this is a major affront to your Constitutional rights because...?

    Yes. And if that mission is to present viewpoints in opposition to the Official Viewpoint, which needs no help as it is repeated ad naseum with a billion watts of broadcast power 24/7, then censorship can be part and parcel to that mission. Now why shouldn't we maintain a place where the narrative which gets no airtime elsewhere can stand out? Do you have a good reason?

    So you find a bit of driftwood in the ocean, take it home and hang it on your wall. I buy it from you and contractually promise I won't paint it red. But before I bought it from you your neighbor said neither of us can paint the driftwood blue. I'm of the opinion you have a claim against me if I paint it red, but if I paint it blue the third party can pound salt.

    This has been discussed and debunked in numerous threads. Which is the only possible reason you could have for starting a whole new thread about it, instead of discussing it there. Flagged. Well that explains why you're still here. Now, care to explain how this is relevant to this new thread spamming old information?

    There are many restrictions on my land... some of which previous owners agreed to: I have a contracted easement for a power line that crosses my land. some of which previous owners never agreed to: I have tens of millions of dollars of natural gas under my land that I'm not "zoned" to touch.

Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.
