View Full Version : Hello. This is my introduction.



Benjamin Parish

My name is Benjamin Parish. I'm a 23 year old college student, from South Central Pennsylvania.

I'd like to introduce myself by giving some kind of a self-analysis of what I am about.

I'm an advocate for a strong national defense, but feel as though we waste our resources too often throughout the world. This is not to say that I dont support the citizens of this nation supporting other countries, its just that I dont like the idea of us doing it through our government. It seems wrong. This is not to speak ill of treaties, rather us financing other countries with aid, and military support (outside of an imminent threat to our allies, in which case we must honor our treaties and stand by their side).

This leads me into my opinion on our having so many military bases throughout the world: I believe that if we were to bring many of our soldiers home, ridding our presence in those countries that we were to leave, that many jobs would come home with them; as I believe that the only reason that many corporations are in some of these countries, is because they know that they have the unwavering support of The United States military (The United States as a whole). They would not stay in some of these countries without our support (I do believe). Also, this is not to mean that we must lay-off any off our troops, or even significantly cut military spending, rather I believe that we should relocate our finances to the pockets of our soldiers, retirees. Though, all in all, if we were to bring many of our troops home to defend our nations borders, rather than the borders between many other countries, then we would be able to cut some military spending, which would go along way in bi-partisanship.

I also, believe that we need to significantly cut federal spending. A transition would need to occur, though, for this to happen. States should be able to opt out of programs, as well as the individuals of our nations. Its time for the 9th and 10th amendments to the U.S. Constitution to mean something again.

I also feel that our government is getting out of control in regard to respecting the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th and 8th amendments respectfully.

I'll cut this short, acknowledging that I'm willing to elaborate, if one wishes me to.


Also, I really like the format here. It fits me.


Hope to enjoy my stay.

He needs to use standard color type, I can't read him without changing skins.

Oh really Benny Boy? Well then let me refresh your memory then

http://www.conservativecave.com/index.php?action=profile;u=2175

Benny Boy is a hard core Paulistinian and it got him banned from the Cave....just to let you know Benny, they don't like Dr. Nutz here any more than they do at CC.

Benjamin Parish
07-24-2012, 10:29 AM
Nevermind. It looks like you fixed it.

Ok. Cool. Thought that might have been what you meant. Forgot that there was a few different skins here.

>>>edit

But I guess that Odysseus had other plans for the color. Hope that you can read that.

No. Im actually not a hardcore 'Paulistinian' (http://www.conservativecave.com/index.php/topic,75632.0.html). Some of you over there have just deluded yourselves into believing that I am, simply because I've showed support for the man. As I've stated several time: 'I dont agree with Ron Paul on eveything.'

You've gone out of your way to worship your hero, up to and including throwing up sock puppets.

But, hell, Benny - welcome.

Let's see how long you last here.

Well, that's why I linked your profile from there so that people can read and make up their minds for themselves. But if you pull the same "lol" crap here as you did there, don't be surprised with the responses you get.

As for your link....sock puppetry???? Yeah, I don't see you long for this forum. But enjoy your stay while you're here and don't shit on the carpet.

No need to discuss him anymore, he is irrelevant to the next election and all of us are no strangers to what he believes.

Yea, me too; but I probably wont be here too long because of them. All that they've done since I first posted something about Ron Paul's 9th circuit delegates filing a lawsuit against the RNC is troll me to no end.

They were so relentless in their hatred that I couldn't post a single thing without it ending up back at their hatred of the man.

Its whatever, though; this place seemed promising.

Yes, he is the "lol" guy who got his ass run off at CC.

Welcome to CU Ben. :cool:

Don't leave the welcome mat out too long for him SR.

This one is special. A combo Ronulan/OWS'er.


He got the ban hammer at CC for a very good reason.

Benjamin Parish

Yes, he is the "lol" guy who got his ass run off at CC.

I never ran off. I got banned twice, from two different accounts.

Just to clarify. :friendly_wink:

>>>edit

And my profile over there looks like that because the mods over there edited it to look like that after they banned me. Evidence is that my website used to go to my facebook, and now it says 'lol', and just redirects you within CC.

If anyone really wants to get to know me, go look at my facebook. The link is in my sig.

Don't tell that to Benny...he things a lawsuit filed in the 9th Circus by a bunch of Paul-tards is gonna win the nomination for Dr. Nutz.

I've warned our new friend Ben that One Trick Ponies are not welcomed here. Support for Paul is fine but if all you are going to do is post Paul stuff than you might as well leave on your own.

Join in on other issues and we're good! :smile-new:

SR said we are giving Benjamen a chance and that is what we are going to do, he is new here even though many know him from the Cave, I'm sure the Cave had good reason for their actions but until he has broken our rules or the special instructions given him by SR he is a member here in good standing.
Give him rep based on the merit of his posts not because of posts on a previous board.
We are not going to start abusing our rep system on this board!

Moderation is consistent at this forum; is it not?

Regardless of the content that I've offered, this thread, along with the other ones that I've engaged in over the past 24 hours, seem to suggest what is and what is not acceptable (imo).

Unless moderation differs from poster to poster; in which case, I beg your pardon.

You've managed to post a whole lot of nothing. Just because we're fairly tolerant here, don't take us for granted. We've got a couple new supermods who'd love to practice that ban hammer. Just sayin' :biggrin-new:

What are your main concerns; may I ask? Could you link them, so that I have the same awareness as you?

As far as I'm concerned, I've posted far more substantive things than most that have engaged me.

And surely nothing has been less than that which I've responded to.
