    I would be in Peterson's camp because he's a pretty pure Libertarian even if he isn't a great Republican candidate. He's a fountain of talking points.
    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.

    ...although i could be wrong...please paste his best/most important thinking as to 'our' stinking monetary order if you think he's so great...

    ...now this is what i want to hear from politicians:

    “I have never yet had anyone who could, through the use of logic and reason, justify the Federal Government borrowing the use of its own money... I believe the time will come when people will demand that this be changed. I believe the time will come in this country when they will actually blame you and me and everyone else connected with the Congress for sitting idly by and permitting such an idiotic system to continue.” (attributed to Congressman Wright Patman)

    "Once a nation parts with the control of its currency and credit, it matters not who makes the nations laws. Usury, once in control, will wreck any nation. Until the control of the issue of currency and credit is restored to government and recognised as its most sacred responsibility, all talk of the sovereignty of parliament and of democracy is idle and futile." (attributed to William Lyon Mackenzie King)

    This guy should run for City Council of a moderately sized Missouri town instead.

    Awesome. Brunner is the best in MO IMO.


    Petersen is really the definition of an attention whore, hate to say it. Brunner has put millions of $ where his mouth is and seems sincere. I hope Brunner raises funds instead of just self funding. Self funding is admirable but a stupid strategy when you can hire a good fundraiser. That's one thing I've learned from politics that a lot in the movement don't get yet. Run of the mill conservative donors are open to giving to liberty candidates.

    So Peterson is on the neoconservative foreign policy train?

    The thing is that I worry sometimes that libertarians when they say, when they make these sorts of jokes about foreign policy, “oh, they hated us for our freedoms, ha, ha” it betrays a lack of full understanding of the true nature of what we are against. Now, just because I am a non-interventionist libertarian, it doesn’t mean that I don’t believe that there are threats around the world. And it also means that I think that we should acknowledge those threats, Russia being one of those primary threats.

    His Russia fear mongering didn't age well lololol. I think Austin made the point, and it's not entirely a bad one that we should appeal to the base and that's something he thought Ron failed at. Petersen's problem now is Russia fear mongering is now a Democrat thing and plays 10 times worse in the GOP than non-interventionism does. In other words.... RP 1, AP 0

    ^^^^^^^^^^THIS^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    Couldn't have said it better myself.

    Brunner is the best choice.

    McCaskill is the trickiest snake I've ever seen in politics. She will be hard to beat.

    I just saw Curtman is running. Great guy. WTH is it with these races where every liberty/semi liberty dude in the state and all their grandmother run against each other and the establishment? I'm tired of campaigns, its time to win some dang seats! I know Brunner can run a statewide campaign don't know if Curtman has enough connections to raise the money or not. Hope somebody good wins.

    Yea, I have been following Curtman for a while. It looks like thee VPOTUS is pushing for some RINO AG to run, so hopefully the liberty votes don't propel the establishment guy to a win here.

    I can forgive a pic with that guy that made Sling Blade, but a pic with the the devil's apprentice? That's a disqualifier.

    Trump is helping Rand pass his healthcare plan, if you think Trump actually supported RyanCare then you are foolish and you need to go read the threads where I addressed this topic. Rand was talking to Trump 2-3 times a week, and Rand told Trump straight up it wasn't going to pass, it didn't have the votes. Trump knew it wasn't going to pass, so he supported it to make sure it was all Paul Ryan's failure and none of it could be blamed on him. Trump hates Paul Ryan.

    Trump is going to help save Syria, with Russia's help.

The media stopped talking about the sickening russian narrative. Proof again it was just a hoax to manipulate the public opinion.

    Trump made a good call as a politician. Libertarian souls can bitch all they want about principles and being conned. Trump is going to disappointed again. I have enough hairchest.

    Just answer the question. Which game is Trump playing?

    At this point, I'm leaning towards Gunny's recommendation of Paul Curtman, at least in the Primary.
