  • This is too funny, I don't know where to start. Help me out.

    I love the people who say Ron Paul would bring all of this fantastic change, yet probably don't understand that lack of government intervention is what's allowed the wealth gap in this country to widen astronomically. We're now on par with wonderfully democratic, free and classless societies such as Mexico and Russia. $$@% yeah Libertarianism

  • Re: Frauding Medicare?

    I figured there would be. Block made a good argument, though. "I have in my time been "guilty" of accepting subsidies from the state.

  • Frauding Medicare?

    There is no trust fund. It doesn't exist. Money allocated is transferred to the Treasurey via the general fund. Helvering v. Davis clearly states this. SS = ponzi scheme

  • Re: Lincoln Killed the United States

    Lincoln completely disapproved salvery? Didn't he support an amendment that would have made slavery permanant? He even thought it was Constitutional. Saying Lincoln supported abolition is like saying Spooner supported the Constitutional Republic.

  • Re: Who is the Next Ron Paul?

  • Re: Who is the Next Ron Paul?

    How are you measuring the bad that a self proclaimed principled libertarian in government causes? By taking a government seat, he's making the government looks more legitimate. It says that he believes the governmental proces is what authorizes the use of force. He says it often too "constitution good, constitution good, constitution good"
