Libertarian Regional Message Board
Timing - timing.
Economics can tell us what will happen - but not when.
But I remain astonished they (the establishment elite) have pushed it this far.
Still we can see the future - Brazil and so on.
After all Goldman Sachs were selling Brazil as the place to invest "three years ago".
I did not charge you a Dollar for saying it was awful.
Yes, Yes, Yes, I was wrong about how long it would take for the United States to go down the drain.
But it will.
That's got '1997 again' written all over it. This and China possibly being less than honest it's about it's own GDP too.
'Asian flu' has proven to be contagious in the past.
Not only Trump had successfully demolished argument that he would appoint liberal SCOTUS judges, he leads against Crooked Hillary in several polls.
He also has pretty sensible ideas how to fix American higher education.
If anyone believes the promises of Donald Trump (on anything) I have a nice bridge to sell them.
Sean Hannity (and so on) is doing the propaganda for Mr Trump every day - we do not need it here.
Still Mr Trump could do one thing that might make me change my mind - formally denounce Patrick Buchanan.
Sean Hannity says (endlessly) that charges that the right are racist or Fascist are lies - and then has on Patrick Buchanan as a respectable figure (Sean CAPTAIN CONTRADICTION Hannity).
"Pat" Buchanan is not just some run of the mill Herbert "The Forgotten Progressive" Hoover (who became a conservative AFTER he stopped being President) Trade War person - working to bring a return to the 1930s Great Depression.
Mr Patrick Buchanan is also what Donald Trump (quite correctly - and only a few years ago) described as a "Hitler Lover".
According to Mr Buchanan - Neville Chamberlain (not nice Mr Hitler) was the warmonger responsible for World War II, and Treblinka was just a "transit camp".
In the past Donald Trump denounced Patrick Buchanan and the rest of the "alt-right". Why does he accept their support now?
By the way - higher education (like education generally) should be nothing to do with the Federal Government.
Where is it mentioned as a power for Congressional spending in Article One, Section Eight - or in the Constitution anywhere?
What Federal Government Departments will Mr Trump get rid of?
Or are we back to the, absurd, promises to save money by being "more efficient" and "reducing waste and corruption" - which every President since Nixon has promised.
If you want to save money - then pick out FUNCTIONS (Federal Government Departments and Agencies) and do not do these things any more.
Senator Cruz proposed getting rid of 5 Federal Government Departments and 25 Federal Government Agencies - and he meant it, which is why he is hated by the Washington crowd.
The same people who happily play golf with their good friend (and funder) DONALD TRUMP.
What's wrong with Pat Buchanan?
Okay, so he doesn't know how Treblinka worked. So what? Why should anyone care about WWII any more than mass murders by Genghis Khan? Its been over 70 years, nobody under 40 really cares about WWII.
That's great, because Trump wants to get the government out of student loans, which is a good start.
When was the last time constitution stopped anyone? Probably Nixon, he was held accountable, because he wasn't Democrat.
Constitution is ultimately piece of paper, it has no power other than what her followers have will and means to enforce.
I am not arguing for or against "constitution" as it should work in theory, but it does not reflect actual form of modern US government, that is of oligarchy with two factions who pretend to be enemies, but are just friendly rivals for the spoils.
Constitution is just an illusion, piece of history people cling for, while they try to resuscitate cold corpse.
"What is wrong with Patrick Buchanan?"
Donald Trump (only a few years ago) answered that question
Patrick Buchanan is a "Hitler Lover".
For example, he believes that Neville Chamberlain (not Adolf Hitler) was the warmonger responsible for World War II.
Donald Trump is a Big Government interventionist (if you think he will end government backing for student loans I have a nice bridge to sell you) who does not believe in the Rule of Law - he believes in using the power of government to attack his opponents and reward his friends (just as Hillary Clinton does). Mirroring the policy of the left is not the answer to the left - it just the other side of the same vile coin.
But Patrick Buchanan is way beyond that.
Patrick Buchanan (as Donald Trump himself used to know) is plain evil - the hero of the Nazi "alt.right".
If you "do not really care" about World War II and the Nazis - Nazis who still active in the United States today, then you need to start caring.
To consequently employ Rule of Law would be to change America into such a big gulag that would cause Stalin to blush. No one is innocent, everyone is breaking hundreds of laws every day. Middle class is opressed with millions of laws, burdened with costs of due process, while violent criminals are let out due to prisons being overfilled with fathers who were unable to pay child support. To kick the law out of the way, and tell lawyers and judges to take a short walk of the long pier, is an advantage, not a flaw. Duterte understood it, that's why he won. America still exists, because sane people with some amount of institutionalised power daly break the law in the name of sanity and decency.
Nazis are less relevant in USA than otakus, and probably less dangerous. The crowd which wastes their time arguing whether "slavs are as bad as jews, or merely as bad a negroes?" is not exactly known for being important force in American politics. Which is why "alt.right" is happy to point out every stupid thing about modern American Nazis, while they are not busy doing the same to the left.
Neo-Nazis are dumb cosplayers: They identify with lost cause from another continent from over half a century ago. If Hitler was as stupid as modern neo-nazis, he would not form a new ideology which was relevant in his time and place, but would dress up in confederate uniform, hoist battle flag, and sing "I wish I was in Dixie" while his fellow Germans would point and laugh at him, rather than seize power as he ended up doing.
Snifkowland - if you do not know what is meant by the term the "Rule of Law" then I am very depressed.
It does not mean "enforce every regulation" - it is about the principles of law (of natural justice) for example not using the power of the Presidency to try and silence political opponents.
For example by threats to use the libel laws to bankrupt people (no matter how many times they win - keep suing them till the go bankrupt with legal fees, because you will make sure that it will not be loser-pays).
Or threats to use the Anti Trust laws against the owner of Amazon - because he also owns the Washington Post which does not like you.
Of course Hillary Clinton is just as bad.
However, the fact that you do not understand what the "Rule of Law" means (that you confuse it with arbitrary regulations) is deeply worrying.
If Americans have forgotten that the "Rule of Law" means the PRINCIPLES of law (of jurisprudence) then the modern world is not so far from the Nazis as you suppose.
After all the Nazis claimed to be entirely lawful - in the Legal Positivist sense.
The defined "law" in the way that Thomas Hobbes did - the Commands of the Ruler or Rulers.
So if the ruler or rulers order to you to gas someone - they you gas them and no crime has been committed (as "crime" is just whatever government says it is).
I really am shocked that you do not know what the "Rule of Law" means.
When you (for example) read the Ninth Amendment what do you think it is referring to?
Just like modern US law is Legal Positivist. You want rule of what you want to be the law, not what is law right now. And what is law right now, is insane and evil, in different way than under Nazis, but still insane evil. And US is far too gone to do a hard reset without spilling a lot of blood.
I know what it is. Its bullshit. People somehow magically have rights they don't know about. Well, guess how many people rot in jail because they didn't knew their rights? Apparently none, because Ninth Amendment teleported them out of jail?
Why, its almost as if law had no will on its own, and people who are supposed to enforce it could simply refuse to do so no matter how much libertardians cry "muh rule of law!"
Ninth Amendment has less influence on American justice system than anime cosplayers.
When was last time Ninth Amendment was invoked by SCOTUS to struck down a law passed by Congress?
Those who demand the right to respect the rule of law, while doing nothing to actually stop the left from breaking law, are at best idiots, and worst traitors, who stop fighters from fighting. Like #neverTrump, who to fight Trump are doing more in a month than they did to fight Obama for last eight years.
If you are too afraid to face tanks armed only with your copy of Bill of Rights, it fine, I am afraid too. I am no fighter, but at least I cheer for the fighters. But if you cannot even cheer for those who actively try (and for once are winning!) to stop the left, and least don't oppose those fighters.
Pull out magical POTUS candidate who's both perfect libertarian and major political party nominee, then you can complain Trump not good enough.
As he should. That's why people are loyal to the Trump, he's loyal to his friends. Unlike GOP, who fight with their last breath conservatives slightly more to the right than them, while kow-towing to the left. Better to err on side of being too nice to your friends, than being too nice to your enemies.
No turning other check. Turn every monstrosity of modern police state they created against them. Lets see how they like their own poison.
Trump is moderate, not an Alt-Righter. He won't need to resort to throwing them out of helicopters, Pinochet-style.
He'll merely tell bureaucrat who obstructs him from building wall "you fired" and have security escort him out.
If Human Resources will try to keep paying fired bureaucrat, he'll have security escort them out.
If any judge declares firings illegal, fire him too, and physically restrain him from entering courthouses.
He'll ruin his enemies with every dirty trick they perfected over last decades to oppress common American people.
Lets see how they'll like US presidency it without Leftist at the helm.
"They pull a lawbook, you pull a gun. They send one of yours to the court, you send one of them to the morgue. That's Alt-Right way!"
Happy UK Independence Day!
