Libertarian Regional Message Board
I agree. I was using the term as it would have been used then.
As for the fiancial collapse, I think if the various scandals going on right now were to lead to impeachments and resignations of Obama and Holder or the trial and imprisonment of 2016's chosen one Hillary Clinton, it could do major damage to the stock market. Not sure how lasting that damage would be, though.
Speaking of 2016, what do you guys think of Rand Paul? I voted for Gary Johnson last year mainly because Ron Paul wasn't the nominee and I don't play the "lesser of two evils" game. As for Rand he seems like a good guy and when he's right, he's spot on. The problem is that he's not libertarian enough enoughfor my taste on certain issues. So do we vote for him hoping his father taught him well and that he's just saying what he has to say to be electable or do we vote for whoever is nominated on the Libertarian ticket? I'm convinced that, despite his flaws, he would be the best President we've had in decades, but if there is a better choice on a third party candidate, that's who I'm going for.
^ No matter who we vote for, it's a crapshoot, but I am convinced that Rand Paul should replace Obama.
The financial system will collapse. Of that I have no doubt whatsoever. But I don't expect it will happen on nearly that short a timescale.
As for 2016, I plan to wait until at least until late 2014 to worry about it, but I do like Rand Paul.
^ : ))
Rand Paul suggests real cuts in government spending (not "cuts in the increase"), but real cuts - and that is what is needed.
There is no point being elected as a bankruptcy wild spending "compassionate conservative" (like Bush). If telling the truth ("YOU CAN NOT HAVE ALL THIS FREE STUFF") means that one can not be elected, then the world is already doomed to Hell.
Tell the truth (as Rand Paul tries to do) and let the chips fall where they may.
He's batting .1000 on economic issues, for sure. But I'm not a fan of some of his stances on social issues. One thing his father realized is that the "Moral Majority" is a shrinking demographic and one would never win an election by appealing to them. Because Ron Paul understood that, I know several former liberals who are now libertarians because they heard Ron Paul's social policy and decided to look deeper.
So, in short, Rand needs to stop appeasing the demographics who lost the last two elections. Instead he should come out as completely libertarian and begin converting the demographics whp won.
Anybody else ever wish this site had a line-item veto? I often end up dismissing issues because of a sentence or two added to a position. For example, today's issue is minimum wage. One solution presented is to abolish it. I agree, but the same position then advocates the legalization of slavery. How do you guys deal with this other than dismissing it entirely?
Buy your bitcoins baby.
I like the idea of bitcoins, but with the total lack of privacy in this country and the endless violations of the 4th amendment, I'm not putting my trust in anything online. Gold is still the best way to go.
