Where Ron Paul couldn't get on the ballot and writing him in won't count in most states - and Roseanne Barr was on the balot in all 50?

What sort of things make you shake your head?

Now I'm going down to Emmett's Fix-It Shop - to fix Emmett.

I shook my head yesterday when I was on the phone with my English teacher, and I was telling her about how I try not to use the word "we" when referring to the government, and she said "we are a nation united, so yes, 'we'."

Ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

She wasn't on the ballot in Alabama.

Nor in Indiana... In fact, I'm pretty sure I read that she would only be on in a couple of states, but who knows.

The only one worth following is the one who leads... not the one who pulls; for it is not the direction that condemns the puller, it is the rope that he holds.

Neodoxy? If you're around, please inform us why your Debate.org page states that you are a member of the "Peace and Freedom Party."

Don't you want peace and freedom? What kind of socialist doesn't want to be a party to that?

Um...yes, I want peace and freedom, but seeing as how on their platform they advocate "social democracy," "feminism," and "environmentalism," then...no thanks.

Oh yeah, and the fact that they nominated Ralph Nader makes them lose a point in my book.

Well I signed up for the peace and freedom, I don't know what that other crap is about.

Why is it so hard to believe that I could just be a sleeper cell for the socialists? Is that really such an impossibility?

He's joking all right.

I assumed she was on the ballot in all 50 states because on election night Google listed her tallies along with the Obamney, Johnson, and 1 or 2 other third paries whose names I forget.

Derp! I looked it up and she was only on the ballot in California, Florida, and Colorado.

That's something of a relief.

@ Neodoxy

All it takes is a quick Google browse to see that the description of their website says "The Peace and Freedom Party is committed to socialism, democracy, ecology, feminism and racial equality."

Unless you're just trolling me here.

I'm sorry Skeptic, but I really don't understand how you could have taken any of my last three posts seriously, especially in conjunction with one another. I put myself down as being a member of the party because I liked the name... That's all.

Or maybe I'm a socialist sleeper cell who will strike down this forum with all the might of the proletariat when the time is right... Whatever strikes your fancy really.

He's clearly a Neodox Marxist, getting us to accept that Marx had subjective valuation as his basis so that we are forced to accept Marx's conclusions.

Hellfire. Someone finally strings all the pieces together. You guys got me, I guess I'll slither on back to left rev and tell of my defeat to the collectivist Overmind. Master will not be pleased

What, he was right? You're a Neodox Marxist? I thought you were one of those Pol Pot guys.

By the way, I'm assuming Neodox Marxism is a reference to Orthodox Marxism, which says Marxism is a science (bullshit)

SkepticalMetal,

Yea I mean it's pretty obvious that I'm a Neodox Marxist by name. The whole point of being a Neodox Marxist is that we don't buy into the foolishness of the Orthodox Marxists, our sworn enemies. Pol pot embodied a form of Marxism which is, by now, well established. This means that he too is a member of an orthodox school of Marxism, and therefore he too is my enemy.

How many times do I have to say this? I'm a Socialist Neodoxian Marxist sleeper cell agent sent to spy on Austrio-Libertarians... Does this make everything perfectly clear?

I figured Ron Paul's laid back look was appropriate for a response to your Socialist Neodoxian Marxist philosophy.

Did I mention that I'm a De Leono-Capitalist?

Neodoxy,

I humbly request that you define "socialist", "neodoxian", "marxist", "sleeper cell", "agent", "spy", "Austrio-Libertarians", "I'm", "a", "to", and "on".

If you could define "perfectly clear" while you are at it, then I think we will be on the same page.

Thanks,

gotlucky
