    In short you believe that you’re competent to have this conversation, ergo, you’re wrong. You don’t even know what these words mean. Authoritarian Anarchist? Really?

    Also you seem to think that I’d get thrown in jail for singing “God save the queen” by the sex pistols in England. Which is laughable as well.

    Once again, you don’t understand. I said that Rights are conventional, and can take any form that society deems appropriate, not that they don’t exist. I also didn’t say that right and wrong don’t exist, but they’re also not black and white. It’s not wrong to tax a billionaire to prevent children from starving to death. No matter how hard incompetent people try to make morals into a matter of absolute black and white. The world is not black and white, it’s mostly grey.

    No….Go to England and disrespect the queen and see what kind of Force is used…..Everything is a matter of perspective. If you perceive for example that some people have the authority to tell others what to do then in your mind, discussion ended. Speaking of philosophy…You deny the existence of right and wrong?…That’s what you’re saying….So you are a Authoritarian Anarchist by your own words….Go figure. Rights are what is rightful, You believe “rights are not right ergo, you’re wrong

    The divine right of kings is also a perfect example of how rights can take any form the society deems appropriate. And why there is nothing natural about them.

    So rights = force? Because that’s all Libertarians can ever manage to articulate. Which isn’t a right, it’s what animals have, holdings. If a dog takes the bone from another dog there’s nothing the loser dog can do about it. Rights are when the dog can have someone enforce his property right, and there’s nothing natural about it. Like I said, it’s entirely conventional. Go take some philosophy classes at your local community college.

    There is also no such thing as kings, queens and rulers….Or dictators or groups of people with the power…..If your statement is correct then mine is as well…Now go tell the queen of England that she isn’t a queen….I can prove rights exist naturally actually….Try to take them away from me and I’ll prove it real quick

    Unfortunately for you types, you choose to stay in “the cage”, and then whine about it when the door’s wide open. Which is why Libertarianism is an ideology for moral cowards. Don’t like the social contract? get the fuck out. You are not entitled to the trappings of modern society without paying taxes. Period.

    Rights are entirely conventional, that is to say, made up by human beings. There are no such things as natural rights. If there were, the onus is on you to prove that they exist. Which you cannot. Which is why right libertarianism is a secular dogmatic religion.

    “Believe”? Naaa, I don’t “believe” I know. Either you believe right6s are derived naturally and are therefore entirely out of the jurisdiction of Government or ya don’t. Truth is you can’t handle freedom or what it implies…The sole purpose of the federal Government is to protect the ability of the people to govern themselves.You cage dwellers need a cage although you like to pretend you’re the one that gets to decide when the door shuts but you’re fools.

    Ron Paul is controlled opposition – The Austrian School of Economics was funded by the Rockerfeller Foundation – It promotes a form of economic darwinism that benefits the oligarchs

    Just curious, which active senators/congressmen do you support? I’m not against gay marriage, but to me, that and abortion are trivial distraction issues that deter most politicians from discussing the real problems facing this country that Ron Paul often brings up…the power and secrecry given to the federal reserve bank, the military industrial complex and U.S world policing, domestic spying and lack of NSA and CIA accountability, bailouts and so forth.

    The reasons libertarians cant win is because they dont have funding. The other parties are bought and paid for with millions of dollars from various orgaizations that the president does favors for. Romney got 800 million dollars. That money could have gone to chairty but it didnt. Anther reason is congress wont allow them in the debates beacuse they dont want to lose their corrupt 2 party system.

    Funny, claims to support freedom then votes against gay rights and women’s rights. No excuse for that, since the bills being proposed were simply saying that the government had no right to tell women and gay individuals that they couldn’t do something. Also votes against equal pay for women. This guy is not even a libertarian, and yet people hound after him like a god.

    What he doesn’t seem to understand is that in the early 20th Century we had children in the sweatshops, women not allowed to vote or earn livable wages, and discrimination was ramped. This guy wants laissez faire back, wants to do away with what Jefferson and others actually believed in (strong central government being the supreme law of the land). While the current system is not good and Paul is on the right track, his solutions are way off base. Glad to see him go; now get rid of capitalists

    Ron Paul is the hero America needs, but not the one it deserves right now.

    Easier said then done, but the rest of us in America take no responsibility for the Libertarians’ lack of moral courage. Your psychological anguish at not being able to remake society how you like simply isn’t our problem. There are lots of places you could go tomorrow, renounce your citizenship and start over tomorrow.

    The most genuine and honest politician of this generation.

    There are NO members of congress left, with the knowledge, fortitude, and sheer veracity to oppose the “elite” gang mentality of fellow career politicians.

    Jill Row is an idiot. European Nations were founded on a common biology, its why Swedes look different than Germans. Just as Japan and other Asian Nations founded on biology as well.

    Sexual freedom is not a positive my dear whore but rather a degeneracy that leads to destruction of National unity.

    Mixed populations exist in very rare cases and usually one where colonialism or marxism (ideologies) were forced onto a Nation in order to divide and conquer the biology of a Nation by outsiders.

    I need to get a hard copy of this speech.

    I bet Romney would have won if he let Ron Paul make this speech at the Republican National Convention.

    People would have noticed that and they may have voted out Obama.
    The catch is I don’t think Romney would do enough to restore the full range of freedoms America both wants and needs.

    A single payer system will only limit access to quality healthcare. Because of Obamacare, many doctors no longer accept Medicare, and are going to cash only payment. It makes sense to have a system in place for those who have no health insurance, but none to impose it on those who are happy with what they already have. Dumping everyone into a single system costs way more, causes sub-standard healthcare, forces others to buy insurance they don’t want, and is already costing jobs.

    European countries evolved into what they are today after hundreds of years of change and immigration, so they wren’t founded on biology or ideology. Intellectual freedom and sexual freedom are not mutually exclusive. Nor is it true that you can have sexual freedom in a theocratic state. Just ask the women in muslim countries. And what are examples of biologic states that you propose make up 99% of nations? The biological makeup of countries is not absolute. Mixed populations exist everywhere.

    Israel is not a theocratic state. It has a democratic government. The only theocracies in our world today are certain Islamic states, and the Vatican (even though they are subject to Italian secular law). Having race as a singular issue is simplistic in the world as it is today. Radical Islam certainly threatens the US more than any other outside entity. Eradicating the “International Jew” still leaves radical Islam. How would their eradication “save our nation”? Your argument lacks logic.

    Easier said than done. Most people in this country have jobs, homes, families, or financial constraints that would make it very difficult for them to move to another country. There are also tougher immigration laws in other countries prohibiting an influx of citizens from other countries to immigrate and change citizenship. Most people in this country desire to own personal property; not just libertarians. Take that right away like Russia and China during their revolutions and freedom ends.

    Nope wrong. I know you idiots think you’re the only believers in freedom, and then turn around and tell people who don’t desire to live under propertarian rule that they’re not free. And no one’s imposing anything on anyone. You are free to leave anytime you want. Don’t let the door hit you where the good lord split you.
