I don't believe you wasted all that time responding to a foreigner that doesn't know a goddamn thing about American politics.Oh sure, you guys made up your minds. If I recall correctly, this board was about 80% Fred, with some Romney and Huckabee thrown in. History reveals that Fred did absolutely nothing whatsoever to further conservative ideals, while Romney and Huckabee did nothing but argue over whom god loved the most, and who made the biggest sanctuary city! So sure, you made up your mind and arrived at the most idiotic solution available. Someone, or rather several someones, called you a dumbass for it, and you got all bent. Get over it already.
Though I don't necessarily agree with the methods and words chosen by the Paullites, I sure do agree that several members of this board needed to be exposed for the leftists they are. If you remember your argument that clearly states your belief that U.S. taxpayers should continue funding Australian, European, Isralei and Pacific Rim defense, than you are clearly a member of that group. You have stated that you believe the U.S. citizen should surrender what they earn so that less fortunate countries can have a better sense of security. Textbook socialism, and you deserved to have your conservative credentials questioned.
No thanks are necessary. You're really quite welcome. Politics in America for the foreseeable future are going to become nasty. With the Republican party selling out to disguised leftism, and the Democrats going way off the deep end of left field, we really don't have room for non-hackers that can't reconcile their damaged philosophies, do we?
Twits like you counter the insane politics of the far left by shifting more and more to the way out right. Never once did you stop to the think about the consequences of a fascist movement within the U.S. A fascist movement of that scale will go global seeing as we have our hand in everyone's cookie jar anyway. Never once did you realize that it's abso-fucking-lutely dumb to counter extremism with a further escalation of extremism. This fact was pointed out by various Paullites in various ways, yet all you can think of is how bad it hurt your pride to be shown that you are wrong. Never mind the fact that you are still on the wrong side of the fight. Pigheadedness will win the day and see your pride through safe and sound won't it?
Being capable of making a decision does not make one smart or insightful enough to make the right decision! You haven't even discovered the pitfalls of your own far right extremism, which may as well be far left extremism since the only thing that differs is intent and justification.
Extremism is countered by an honest to goodness appeal to conservatism. Let every man and family stand on their own and choose their paths for themselves. That's what Ron Paul was preaching, that's what the Paullites were preaching in their varied methods. That's what you have fought against tooth and nail. Fighting against something so simple as asking the government to leave Americans alone and let them do for themselves most definitely brings into question your idea of conservatism, thus it was challenged righteously. In the end you couldn't hang, so you got all emo on us.
The hell I did. In all actuality I came to this board to speak with your resident economists, Scott & OwlMBA about the gold standard and the economy. I learned quite a bit, from Scott especially, about the shortcomings of a commodity standard. However, if you recall, both Scott & OwlMBA were arguing that the American economy was strong and fit as ever. Look at us now! Our dollar is worth half what is worth this time last year. Massive layoffs within the construction industry have ensued and the auto worker industry is next. Therefore, the Paullites were right and your members were wrong. You contest that they left because of the spam. I contest that they left to save face because they were proven wrong.
That's not really your call to make is it? The site wanted us for sure. More users mean more hits, more hits mean more ad revenue. Having us here is good business.
Again, that's not your call to make. This isn't a private club, it's a public forum. If you aren't comfortable being around those with dissenting views, then go elsewhere. You seem to have a need for everyone to agree with your distorted, dangerous, and outright un-free worldview. A public forum, where people who think and reason might pop by probably isn't the best place for you.
You didn't tell me you weren't interested. You told me that you were right and that I was wrong. I offered evidence and sound logic, and you accused me of "spamming". I countered ten-fold your arguments for forward bases, and you called me "inhumane". Please, unless you are the victim of stupidity, you are no victim here.
Woah! Hold up here. What kind of non-thinker, in their right mind, puts Freedom of Speech in little quotes, in a context of disdain, on an American conservative forum! Secondly, what kind of logic goes on in a man's head that would lead him to believe that a free man's unalienable right can be "abused" through public discourse on a public venue. To say we have "abused" our rights by merely exercising them is a grave injustice that is visited and upheld frequently in American courts. We didn't "abuse" a damn thing. We exercised our voices in telling you and your kind that you are making decisions that will prove dangerous to future Americans. The Paullites called your fragile political philisophy into account and your only discourse is to say that we were "abusing" free speech?
Seriously, grow a pair, stop whining, and start thinking.
Hrm...yeah...that's not going to happen, and rightly so.
And I'm done breaking down your lame post. It was pretty painful just to get to this point, so I don't want to go through your winy repeat of everything you just said, only with more character formatting.
He is from a Socialist country that just cut and ran combat operations from Iraq so he is hardly the one to have that discussion with.
