    Vote Gary Johnson! Yes, there are differences, but he’s the best bet for a liberty-minded president who is already on the ballot in all 50 states.

    Machines will be more integrated as we move into the future yes but they can not completely take all of the jobs, they will simply create more jobs because machines can’t take care of themselves. The point of me saying machines can’t think is the reason why they won’t take over. The purpose for technology is to make the job simple and efficient for humans to perform. My point stands jobs will always be apart of human society. Honestly, this isn’t debatable I don’t know why you continue to argue.

    Only when the last tree has been cut down
    Only when the last river has been poisoned
    Only when the last fish has been caught
    Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten.

    personally, i love Ron Paul’s “Freedom/Liberty Message” but i dont think gold is the answer to any of our problems.

    Such a future will never exist, person’s labor or resources will always be of value to another person.

    that’s the goal , to replace most jobs with machines. That’s why civilization progresses. People do not need ‘jobs’ just for the sake of having a job, they need products and services. If the machine can provide them, that’s perfect. We wouldn’t be better of by having no youtube and this message board, even though if we both rode our horse-carriages to a bibliotheque and have a discussion there, it would create more jobs. Fuck Modern Luddism !

    I’m speaking entirely in the future where you wouldn’t need to “barter or exchange”

    What do you mean by “abolishing money” ?

    Isn’t money just a medium of exchange/barter. Wouldn’t money always be necessary to barter and exchange within your community?

    “Actually most jobs can’t be done by machines”
    Pffthaha. Let me give you a 2 second google search example and see what it gives me, oh look: ‘Machines will 80 percent of doctors”

    “Machines can’t think for themselves”
    Captain obvious over here.

    “Jobs will forever be apart of human society”
    Incorrect. Can you tell me the purpose of technology in the first place so you disprove yourself lol…

    Actually most jobs can’t be done by machines, and machines always needs maintenance. Machines can’t think for themselves they only do as they were designed or programmed. Jobs will forever be apart of human society, maybe you should get one.

    you didn’t miss much to be honest, the same old crap that we’ve been hearing from both the parties for decades now and nothing will change.

    I wish you would stop putting words in my mouth and strawmanning me. Most jobs in America can be replaced by machines. Jobs are obsolete.

    Gold is a raw resource and is mildly useful, and most importantly, is not perishable. This means that you can always get a fair price because you can just sell it later. This means the price is set by the seller and not the buyer. It is a garunteed profit if you buy gold (or silver, copper, or any other non perishable element or mineral.)

    Hmm. Currency issues were the main thing I’d been thinking about for a couple days and this right here is the answer.

    So you’re saying everyone should just be slaves then? When people work you’re supposed to compensate them for their time and effort. Normal compensation is what we call money. Slavery isn’t the answer!

    so happy I left the USA regime 13 years ago and chose a communist/socialist country VN as my home where gold is bought and sold at the banks. can be saved in the bank and can be debited against the same as a cash account.. can americans spell FREEDOM anymore?? take it back and kick the imperialist globalist OUT of DC. the VC did it to the French and then kicked the US the hell out. U can do the same guys,, kick em out or keep dancing to their tune.. good luck!!

    I think it is important to the Liberty Movement for Ron to officially give his blessing to Gary Johnson during this election. He was clearly not our first chice to run this late in the year but he is a third horse in this two horse race which will help keep our momentum alive. I also think Gary should in return officially announce where in his cabinet he would place Paul. In my opinion, this issue should be a priority. ~Cheers

    The watching the “debate” gave me a bad headache. My head felt a lot better, however, after watching this video.

    Why would I need to create a black market in a society that has embraced technology and abolished currencies? This society isn’t resource based, coexists with nature and doesn’t wake up to make money; it’s hobby based.
