    and once again Trump was totally on message.

    I wonder if this interview is archived on Youtube anywhere? I love posting stuff like this.

    About as much as I loved posting the Reagan Tariff on large Motorcycles on twitter last night at the “TrueCons”. They love to evoke Reagan but Trump being America First is somehow “liberal”.

    Back when the GOP wasn’t sucking up to the Globalist they actually were thought of as the party to get business moving and thus stomped Democrats. It wasn’t until all the free trade agreements that it became so damn hard to win a national election.

  • Ed Rollins Remerges as Trump Backer, Strategist

    05/04/2016 12:29:11 PM PDT · 42 of 48
    techworker to rightazrain

    How exactly do you blame Rollins for say a Michelle Bachman loss?

    It’s like saying Karl Rove deserves all the credit for W winning. Although I’ve grown to dislike the Bush’s a big part of Bush winning in 2000 is just that he could somehow relate to people without coming off like a privileged elitist from a status family. Compare and contrast that with Al Gore. I don’t care about popular vote, I am talking about in Red States, the candidate had certain innate abilities that Al Gore did not. Gore was stiff and wooden.

    This isn’t to say Rove had a bad strategy. However Rove could have ran Mitt Romney’s campaign and Mitt would have still found a way to lose it.

    I personally value Ed Rollins’ input here. Trump style America First Republicanism with the right people can create a massive Mondale style beat-down. These days I don’t think you could get 49 states but if he wins swing states, and picks off NY/NJ it will be a landslide, and thus a mandate. During the Reagan years the Boll Weevil’s often supported Reagan because of the landslide win. They didn’t want to go back to their district and be seen as too “against” Reagan.

    Why should Globalists define conservatism? I love the term I am not sure if it was Jeff Sessions or Trump, but the term was Economic Patriotism

    techworker to TurboZamboni

    I can’t believe the negativity on this thread. I guess it’s one thing to be suspicious of all the newfangled fads but sheesh I have never felt better. Ketosis....

    I don’t eat gluten period. I don’t eat any grains. I have not been diagnosed with Celiac and am almost certain I don’t have it. If I have a cheat meal (have twice since June) I go into a Carb-Coma so I try to make it dinner if at all possible.

    Grains, Sugar, Starches, Beans. I don’t eat any of those. Down 88 pounds this year and most of that since my son graduated in late May. I am not going back that’s for sure. Just hoping at 45 years old it’s not too late, meaning my pancreas and gallbladder had too many years of abuse.

    Liquor - Occasionally will have light beer, it’s low carb, but not too many. Most days try to keep NetCarbs under 20g, but sometimes go closer to 50. Otherwise I might have some kind of whisky, as the distilling process kills off the toxic proteins anyway, but more importantly there isn’t really a carb rush from the hard liquor.

    Pizza - Easy, I made burnt cheese pizza when I get this fix. My kids like it better than regular pizza although they might exaggerate.

    Beef, Eggs, Bacon, (Pork), Cheese. Pickles, Apple Cider Vinegar swigs, Broccoli, Cauliflower.

    Fruit, I keep somewhat lowish more for weight loss reasons. at 6’1” down to 230, and need to get to 195 to be studly. Will have berries with whip cream though. (Blue-Black-Rasp-Straw) I just keep it to a couple times per week.

We all make choices and compromises. Also this is why I use the small “l”.

    “Unable to address the social issues that divide libertarian and conservative ideologies (because you can’t), you throw a tantrum, hurl an insult and walk away pouting. Typical.”

    Because you continue to call him a Libertarian despite his repeated assertions of being a libertarian? What’s left to discuss. This argument that goes on, is about as ignorant as engaging a liberal who uses phrases like “teabagger” and “racist”. Might as well just walk away. You people in thread after thread continue to insist that everyone who even hints at being libertarian-minded as being a card-carrying member of the Libertarian party. No matter how many times the other person says they are not, the idiotic accusations continue.

    Like I said I might as well be arguing with a sycophant liberal who says the tea party is racist. You both have about the same level of intellectual curiosity.

    Colonel in a world with many entertainment choices, choosing to not watch something, not a big deal. I sometimes avoid things for awhile that I intend to get into at some point and end up not (Ron Swanson for instance).

    I do happen to like MMA. If you’ve ever been around something like NCAA Wrestling, many of your greatest MMA fighters were amazing wrestlers back in their college days. Though I haven’t verified my 18 year old son who is himself an athlete in college loves this stuff and tells me that Heavyweight Champ Cain Velasquez didn’t nose an NCAA wrestling match his last two years of school.

    Now don’t get me wrong, the wrestlers have to ground and pound, but having been in a few fights and losing one in a ground and pound situation, the blows weren’t quite as strong with me on my back and him punching from his knees. Though I did get a nasty black eye. I of course was a boxer and basketball player and the dang wrestler types knew the only chance they had was to get me down and this guy did it. I can assure you stand up boxing with gloves, the full punches were far worse (and as stupid teens we didn’t wear the amateur head gear).

    MMA I would imagine doesn’t have nearly the long-term effects on the brain as boxing and potentially not as much as football.

    Not even close. However since you don’t watch it I wouldn’t expect you to know that, I am not criticizing you, just pointing out the facts. Many of the matches are decided by submissions, and there isn’t nearly the number of violent shots taken to the brain as in boxing.

Rarely if ever, does a black guy who is by himself look at me in a menacing way, nor would I, him. I always strive to look edgy and mean while minding my own business. I am not saying the guy couldn’t kick my ass, but I at least like to give an impression that you are better off finding someone else to screw with.

    And my point is I can’t imagine two women starting in on me for something like this. Frankly I wouldn’t even engage them, I’d shrug my shoulders in an apologizing way, and keep right on walking. Perhaps he was stumbling around and drunk? Again not saying the guy deserved it, I am just wondering why so much detail is left out.

    No, no, no, no. You are the one who consistently goes straight to the Libertarian party platform as a reference as if one single person arguing with gives a rat’s behind what the LP platform is.

    I stand by my thoughts, perhaps you didn’t understand my point and I’ll say another way. I am merely pointing out that conservatives on social issues do not bother me unless, of course they create a worldview full of logical fallacy like you do.

    I am in a very right-wing world as far as work, my kids school, most of my friends, etc. and I speak freely this way, none of my friends think of me as a leftist. Rather they think I am a little too far right. I will vote for Social conservatives. As long as they are not candidates who come from the tree of Bush-Cheney-Rove-Kristol etc. No matter what they think about gay marriage, I will never ever vote for one of these big-government statists.

    You have a top priority as do I, mine is anyone who voted against de-funding the NSA is out. Anyone defending prism or bashing Snowden, out. I’d also love to see DHS cut, but am not holding my breath. Do you see any reason why I wouldn’t vote for Ted Cruz or Sarah Palin? Bachmann, no freaking way, she attacked Snowden and went against Amash she is dead to me. I can’t put another big government statist back in office. Rand Paul or Cruz, otherwise I’ll be sitting this one out.

    I don’t fight with social conservatives, I fight with you. It doesn’t have anything to do with social conservatism, it’s your lack of logic and incorrect factual assertions. You are not the embodiment of social conservatism. Check that ego, ansel12. I sometimes clash with (L)libertarians, too, and leftists all the time. You aren’t special, unfortunately. I actually agree with you on most of the issues, but your reasoning is just awful, your factual information is lacking, and you are a most unpleasant person as a result. The lying is the worst part. If somebody posted that reading John Wesley turned people into Zoroastrians, I would put that person in the same file as you.

    Here, here. I think that these arguments are terribly dishonest.

    I have been here since the late 90s (though I can't remember my old screen name) because I am a conservative.. I detest abortion, attend church, send my kids to a very conservative christian school that folks in town might think of as "fundie factory". Yet these threads devolve into some of the most ridiculous arguments by people so hard-headed that we are all liberals? Good lord people, we are further right than you statists.

    Ansel I'll tell you what happened. I woke up to what the Republican party has become. Aren't you in the exact same boat as me, and ticked at the GOP? Haven't you suggested as much? First off, what would be so hard about acknowledging that common ground? All of us here are likely disgruntled.

    Here is the difference between you and I.

    I consider people as passionate as you are about this stuff as being on my side, you just have a couple of issues that you find more important to focus upon. You on the other hand think those of us who are sick of endless wars, the police state, the TSA, the NSA, domestic drones, prism. etc. as being liberals.

    Also, how hard is it for you to stop comparing any of us to the Libertarian party? You can't even do that for the sake of discussion? You've been asked repeatedly, and you refuse, are you afraid of something?

    OK LJ. Now I see the crux of the issue. You use this analogy to make your point:

    One thing they dance around is when you ask them something like: “Okay, you want no laws against any kind of porn, sodomy, same sex marriage/adoption/in the military/drugs and so on - federal laws. I’m fine with that. What about STATES enacting such laws?” They generally leave the discussion cold at that point. Some have admitted to me that the states have no business making such laws either.

    So, now I see what's going on here and that is you have a perverse need to get inside their head. So someone from a more libertarian thought process says it's a states issue not something for the federal government to decide. But you press further.

    You have a twisted need to get deep inside their head. You'd make a great statist, you should apply to the TSA or NSA. Maybe DHS. We'll need folks who can probe to find out what really drives patriots so we can root them out.

    What you are attempting to do here isn't much different than the movie Minority Report. Everyone's brain must be clean before LJ can accept them. Shoot you might want to think about being an instructor in the re-education camps.

    A serious beatdown cdc well done.

    This is absolutely his issue of not debating from the same set of definitions, descriptions, etc. To continue to phrase every single argument with the Libertarian Party is just laughable. It’s almost a perverse fantasy these folks have. He simply will not listen. He’s a statist who knows what’s best for all of us, including forcing discussion of the philosophy of Liberty into his limited worldview.

  • Is Edward Snowden A Double Agent?

    Why is it today seems like New World Order shill day? Mindless attacks on Paul on another thread, relentlessly going after Snowden here.

    I forgot to add one caveuat to Republicans I will never vote for and that’s the NeoCons calling Snowden a traitor. Bums.

    Now as to your argument, I find that you want to believe in your country which is noble, and you think collecting the data much like one collects trash is just fine. Once again why are you not getting the fact that this data can be used to compile a dossier that shows you are a potential threat someday. Gun Owner? Veteran? Posts all the Time on Free Republic? Speaks about the constitution and the Bill of Rights. Put this guy on a watch list.

    Heck maybe they can snag your google password and start trading child porn in your name. Silly of course, but is it? You apparently have no regard for your personal effects?

    Plus, what kind of massive public spending of tax dollars went into this without even so much as a discussion? Have you no regard for the money you send to DC? What about the Neo-Fascist forced government-corporate partnerships.

    I wish I would have read the whole thread first Dadfly, you admit to oversimplifying and seem like a nice enough fellow.

    My position is this. I will vote for a conservative despite some libertarian leanings. So I don’t give a flying @#$ what ansel likes to throw out there in philosophical debate. Never again will I vote for a non-constitutional GOP member. These idiots who like draw lines between Cruz and Paul are insane in my opinion. In any case anyone from the Bush tree is done forever. Anyone from the tree of Bill Kristol, Dick Cheney, McCain, Boehner, Paul Ryan, Chris Christie etc. Done. I don’t care where they stand any issue at this point they are dead.... useless. Those folks are far more dangerous than Rand Paul.
