Generally speaking, that would be correct.




On this point you are right, we see each of those as being what one pays in order to live in a civil and organized society.
Riddle me this oh wise statist:

If confiscating 100% of the fruits of your labor is slavery at what percent is it not slavery? 99% confiscation? 50%? 1%?

And remember, both the cotton picker in 1850 Texas and the promissory note user in 2016 do receive a return on their confiscated labor in the form of food, water, roads, etc.

Given the level of the conversations around here there is very little else that one can be when responding, other than being "flippant."
FEMA contingency paid for by my taxes. and then continued to be paid for once rebuilding was effected. Not a long term condition but a temporary one due to the effects of natural disaster. You edited out a critical phrasing from that definition to buttress your position. Typical. Wise wino is not so wise obviously.

The irony of you accusing others of personal attacks. I mean your posting record is one of hate whites here, hate whites there,... hate, hate, hate. I mean deranged type of stuff.

I would like to consider myself a life long black conservative. Even if I wasn't raised conservative, I've always held these values. Aside from a small 4 year stint where I was a staunch socialist, I've always considered myself conservative. I do identify more with the libertarian viewpoint now days, because they promote liberty which SHOULD be a conservative value. I also believe that the free market has most solutions, wars are fought for profits, and I don't support cronyism. I also feel libertarians, and even constittutionalist represent everything a conservative should be.

With that said, black conservatives are an absolute joke. Most of them are no intelligent, have little to no insight on issues, and represent poor logic or critical thinking when it comes to issues. Stacy Dash is a perfect example of the issue with black conservatives. Steeped knee deep in intellectual dishonesty, does nothing but bash black people, but the most important thing:

OFFERS NO SOLUTIONS

Seems like most "liberals who like cops and war" aka republicans are so willing to give idiots like Stacy Dash a platform. But she has shown she knows nothing about economics, noting about social issues, nothing about economic conditions in the ghetto, nothing about history that drives most contemporary black thought, and nothing about noting. She is literally there to bash black people. She has no expertise on anything she talks about.

I do think the free market way is the best way to go for black people. But black people must first understand why the free market works for them. Whenever black conservatives get on air, they always have the chance to promote why the free market works. Yet they never do. Just a short piece bashing black people, and that's it.


So it seems like the whole idea of black conservatism is to be shameless apologist for statism, authoritarianism, and totalitarianism. And that's about all they stand for. It becomes painfully obvious when you try to reach out to other black conservatives, and you realize there really isn't anything of substance when it comes to black conservatism.

This is why the face of black conservatism must change. I feel black liberals are quick to criticize Stacy Dash, or some other idiot black commentator. But black conservatives aren't doing it. And that needs to change. Black conservatism isn't just being shills for the status quo. It is based on principals, and I feel black conservatives need to get back to these principals.
I wouldn't be talking about others.

"constittutionalist" " Most of them are no intelligent,"

I'll see your one Stacy Dash, ( never heard of this person) and RAISE you DOCTOR Ben Carson, BUSINESS man Herman CAINE.

LOL.. Attacking white supremacy online does not equal "hating whites". There are a few of us on here that speak truth to power..

As for your reply to Wino, you can't deny that you personally attacked his character after he replied with data that contradicted your statement..

You tend to do this pretty well when it serves your purpose.
