I'll repeat myself since you can't comprehend falsities. Being able to leave the union does not qualify a society as free! We are not a free (do anything you want) society. We are a democratic republic regulated and governed by laws. Contemplating an action were you already know what the outcome is energy wasted. nothing more nothing less...

This election was simply politics as usual, and at least IMO was easily predictable despite what all the "pollings" and media pundits were blathering on about.


There is no reality; only perception.
If Ron would have somehow won the nomination I believe most traditional Rupublicans would have stayed home on November 6th.

What is bad about it?

Curious. How many people have read Ron Paul's book The Revolution? He discusses ANYTHING and EVERYTHING someone could think to bring up.

You might be right. But I do find this chart very interesting.

Amen. I voted for O because there really was no alternative. I did not want to see America become a plutocracy/theocracy run by a bunch of Jesus cultist wack jobs. We see how that turned out with bush.

I've seen this chart many times. The variable is "what would have been the difference in votes between Ron & Romney"? There is no guarantee Ron would have been able to out preform Romney. There is actual evidence that he would most likely do worse. The GOP nomination infers that.

The best estimate of future performance is past performance. All else is wishful thinking...

So if someone is held captive that's a free society. What next?

No one is claiming that is so, although that type of tactic is used by those who cannot discuss the issue or are so ignorant of the issue they make things up. As long as you do not abuse the rights of others. That is what our government was founded on, property rights.

So slavery was lawful and demonstrating against that is energy wasted?????

I'll repeat myself since you can't comprehend falsities. What part of slavery means one is free?

Then you wont learn and will continue to make the same mistakes over and over again. Just like Obama has done with his horrible policies that you think are peachy keen. Wake up!

I don't see facts in your posts, just unsubstantiated cheerleader comments.
