    But, they sure didn't give a $#@! that their choice Bernie got shafted and went and voted Biden. If you believe the narrative that Biden actually had more votes that is.
    Even if they did change and Ron won the primary there is no way the elites would have allowed him to win the general. If by some fluke event allowed him the opportunity to win the general he would be quickly impeached and dragged out of there in cuffs if not killed. That is unless Ron compromised his values which would be unlikely considering his voting record.

    Separation and providing the masses a shining light example seems to be the only way.

    Hence the need for separation.

    The only truly "bad people" are those who refuse to allow others to separate.

    Oh, and people who call the cops on others for some stupid petty $#@!. They can burn in hell.

    So you are advocating separation? OK, how? Where? Which territory to take and do you expel those not in accord? Even at gun point?

    Or are you advocating just individually? Something that will never be seen, heralded or trumpeted for others to rally around. And ultimately amount to absolutely nothing.

    I still think there's enough of us to buy a country. The same way the Jews did.

    We just first need to get religious and get gassed a bit, but then we're on our path to sovereignty.

    Just to be clear I do not nor have I advocated any individual to take matters into their own hands which would be foolish. There are already free state and succession like movements that come to mind without much activity. Something like we have already seen but they would need to do more to broadcast the liberty side for what I described in order to gain any traction and have any real followers necessary to make that happen.

    I have seen the later.. in locations.

    The Keys years ago being one. And am hoping pockets of liberty remain.

    1n 1995 when I turned my Wanted Self in,, the lower Monroe County SWAT Unit did not want to arrest me.

    Did not believe the alias they knew was the real person I was.

    Sat on a cruiser. Drank a 40 Oz.. Showed the guys my Tattoos and has them compare to description.

    Seriously. a very polite and apologetic arrest..

    I understand Proper and Improper Law enforcement.


    and the whole purpose of the Fusion Center controlled Violence should be apparent to any paying attention over these years.

    I have been accused of Violence on this forum for my 2nd amendment , and support of Militia concept positions..
    I have been accused of being "Armed and Dangerous" for several years as a Wanted Felon. (8 years actually)

    I do have some potential for violence,, training even in several forms of Violence,,but prefer to live peacefully.

    Why PROVOKE me to violence?? that has my curiosity at the moment.. ( I do understand that I am being deliberately provoked)

    Don't really understand the "Why"?

    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.

    It wasn't the Democrats that screwed Ron out of the election- it was the Republicans who lied about his winnings, "forgot" his name in the caucuses, even when he won, and made him into the HE-WHO-MUST-NOT-BE-NAMED candidate.

    This is why it was so obvious to me that Trump was being pushed to the top with all his free millions of $$$$ "negative" publicity.

    Big media is an evil leftist echo chamber.

    It got that way, not by design, but because it was the most profitable. Shows with evil leftist lies had better ratings and stayed on the air. Shows that had a more balanced opinion were rating duds and dropped.

    People like evil leftist lies, because well, they are evil leftists.

    It's not some conspiracy from the top to turn everybody leftist. They already were leftist.

    I disagree. It is not a conspiracy that the elites are leftists and use their mediums to condition people into their beliefs. As an example they knew an outlet for the right would be profitable hence Fox News is used to play the fake opposition.

    I know for a fact from dealing with these people on and off over the last 30 years that they are all on the same team. It is all one big sham.

    I am not sure the elites have any consistent ideology beyond what actions best sustain their power. Supporting leftist causes has likely proven most effective in cementing their power. Ultimately, the elites are few in number. Much like hubris is often man's own undoing, the legion of radical leftists coming up through the system will likely throw them overboard once they are through with the elements constituting the right.

    Having become reacquainted with academia in recent years, TheTexan is correct that at this time a lot of people are simply evil leftists. It has not come from the top down, it has come from the bottom up. The kids are receiving "educations" designed to achieve only one outcome - a permanent leftist incapable of critical thinking. The left is all they know, and the more purely something is of the left, then the more they like it.

    It is an ideological version of demographics are destiny.

    Who funds and operates those colleges? Leftists, elites.

    The people are leftists since they are largely empty vessels awaiting information to be fed to them from some where since they cannot think for themselves. Where do you think that information comes from? It is from everything they consume they formulate their belief system. Who produces what they consume, leftists and these leftists are far more leftist than anything that is presented publicly. I do not even know what to call it but they really do not give a damn about Human Rights and look at the masses like we are ants. A cruel and sadistic people, with public presentation otherwise as propaganda to keep their open secrets and to keep society from collapsing should the truth be known about how they rule.

    The people that direct these beliefs and produce this information are not few in number. Maybe we just differ in the definition of the elites. I considering the elites or the club to be the billionaire CEO's, the news media that they own, entertainment-Hollywood and the two party duopoly. Despite any two party bickering, behind the scenes they are all friends looking out for one another in the club.

    People really have no clue what is really going on in this country and what really goes on within the ruling classes club. It has not changed for them for a thousand years, it is an open secret with the people being kept in the dark about the truth since they control all information the people consume.

    I snipped most of your post and feel we generally agree. Anything I write after this is just attempting to refine the discussion.

    The elites certainly fund the colleges, but the useful idiots that carry out leftism are the entrenched individuals that both understand and endorse it. I do not regard teachers and professors and the like as elites, but they are what makes the whole leftist engine work. They are the true believers that would push their ideas without funding, and they are the ones imbuing those empty vessels with leftism. After the passage of some time, those leftists end up spreading out into important positions in society, and every corner of it is corrupted by them.

    I agree those are the elites.

    Perhaps the scope of the problem is why it appears we are talking past each other. I am coming from the perspective that there are the true believers who endorse leftism because they understand it and are in a position to most influence the future. The elites have certainly made people dance to their tune since the dawn of man's arrangement in hierarchies, but I believe they are mostly focused on what benefits them here and now with little regard for future considerations.

    Simplifying the general theme: the present belongs to the elites, the future to the leftists. They are both problems, and there may be some overlap between the two groups, but I believe they are mostly distinct. I think some of this friction between the two groups can be seen to some extent between the newer and older members of the Democrat party.

    I agree and realize even if people were made aware there are still many that will do anything for money including compromising their values or align themselves with the enemy to make more of it.

    That is one thing I learned that really surprised me about several so called prominent Libertarian's we discuss here and some of the Libertarians that post here that I have run into outside this forum. NAP and the truth means nothing when the elites are handing out money.

    I hear what you are saying and agree to some extent with what you wrote here. The difference being I see it as the future will belong to the leftists simply because the elites funded it that way. Any threat to the elites position by true leftists would simply be rooted out in their favour. That is a very dangerous game they play that does not always work out so well for them in the end.

    The funding of the elites certainly helped enable it to be that way, regardless of whether it is a more important factor than the true believers. The combination of the elite with the true believers is a potent combination, and it may not matter what percentage of the "blame" each are responsible for.

    I think we are in agreement that the hubris of the elites may well result in their downfall... or not, should they deftly maintain control. I can envision both outcomes, with the deciding factor being whether or not the bread and circuses can be maintained.
