    Already seeing Massi being called a gadfly in MSM articles.
    Truth forever on the scaffold, Wrong forever on the throne,--
    Yet that scaffold sways the future, and, behind the dim unknown,
    Standeth God within the shadow, keeping watch above his own.

For one they have more lobbyists and the will of the people who want socialization of medicine. Those gangsters outgun us 100:1
    How am I projecting?

    Never mind all the baseless fearmongering. How am I projecting?

    Am I coronating Romney? Am I in Congress voting for unconstitutional bills? Am I Borg?

    It's a very simple question. How am I projecting?

    Prove to us you're not a sock puppet of a certain shyll who's been obsessed with misapplying that word ever since I first taught it to him. Tell us all how I'm projecting.

    Did Rand coronate Romney by endorsing him?

    No, he didn't. He didn't endorse the guy until after the coronation.

    Stop ducking the question. How am I projecting?

    You claimed that I didn't think it was a battle worth having because its unwinnable so i thrown it back at you. My claim is his strategy although you might attribute as altruistic is a losing strategy.

    I said that in this post?

    They seem to know something we don't--like how much of that bill is out and out illegal.



    And you're here to say resistance in the name of the Republic is futile?

    No, I did not.

    But regardless of what else you're throwing, or shoveling, and in what direction, I still want to know if you're using words you cannot define.

    What was I projecting?

    And while you're at it, what does, "My claim is his strategy although you might attribute as altruistic is a losing strategy," mean? Is that English? Is there some kind of punctuation that might help us decipher this?

    Will he win the hearts and minds and convince enough people that this problem proves government managed healthcare is a disaster so that there is no longer a majority of people who want socialized medicine? I argue this actually serves the needs of the medical industrial complex by reframing the argument as a corporation bailout and makes it impossible to distinguish between symptoms and causes of the problem.

    I don't even know which "he" you're talking about at this point.

    All I know for sure is, it's hard to have a conversation with people who admit to redefining terms to suit their agendas, and can't summon the courtesy to answer one simple question.

    i used a colloquialism which has been redefined and used in the past similarly throughout time. Sorry my legal definition was wrong your honor.

    I hope Rep. Massie has a lot of security cameras around his home and some security guys around! Democrats are probably already rounding up psychotic supporters to stalk and injure or kill him. They'll be singling him out all the time now, as they've done to Rand.

    This unfortunately is not a libertarian moment for the country, hopefully this doesn't cost Massie his seat or make him go full on resistance like Amash.

    No mention of Massie on Fox tonight. He doesn't exist. Remind you of anything?

    Shame it wasn't on earlier though.

    If it does cost him his seat so be it. It's worthy of "a hill to die on" IMO.

    unfortunately, yes. they act like as if they are a cult of religious zealots, and we are seeing the worst sort of petty politics being played out.
