quote: I would love to vote for him personally, but what can I do?
quote: I wonder what quotes we would get from Mr. King if he knew Ron Paul and other Libertarians would have refused to vote on the Civil Rights Act :)
quote: Ron Paul is arguably the LEAST racist candidate in that he supports ending the war on drugs, which results in the imprisonment of millions of minorities yearly.
quote: We need to stop the "lesser of two evils" balogna. There is not just red and blue. If you vote Republican or Democrat because everyone else is gonna pick one or the other, you revoke all rights to criticize other people's decisions.
quote: The real problem with a third party like that is the two parties in power won't cooperate for the most part. They will both will refuse to vote for new legislation because <insert proposal name here> doesn't fully align with what they represent <insert party talking point here>. The third party person would truly need to be a master politician of the highest order to make things happen.
quote: Think bringing back the "Line Item Veto" would fix some the political bickering? I really think it should be brought back. It was also a really good way of keeping the spirit of legislation, while cutting the fat. Pork has just exploded since they removed the line item voto imo.

quote: Now I am willing to agree with what you said about Collectivism, but going all the way to the other extreme of Individualism also has its draw backs.
quote: there are gifted individuals who start an idea, but for that idea to grow they need a team, which is also another type of collective, to bring that idea to complete fruition.
quote: As Collectivism cannot be evil at its core. It is like all things a tool. And if you see or percieve any evil in the tool, it is 100% attributed to the user.
quote: Back in the day, the rep. party stood for a low taxes business friendly scale, small govt. and leave people the hell alone with their personal lives. Who could argue with that simple logic.
quote: And when was it EVER true of the Democrats?
quote: But Romney’s claim that he can somehow slash individual income tax rates without losing federal revenue or favoring the wealthy remains at best unproven, and in our judgment, based on available evidence, impossible.
quote: Romney won't even commit anymore to balancing the budget by the end of his second term (2020):
quote: So a nonbinding statement of principles is somehow going to be a "ban" on porn?
quote: Federal politicians are by no means legally obligated to follow their party's national platform, but if they defy it they risk losing funding support from the "party bosses".
quote: Something didn't seem right about the premise here, so I did some digging. There is NO bill being drafted in Congress by Republicans or anyone that would ban anything. There is no plan to do so. This is just base-pandering and sabre rattling NONBINDING mission statement, so to speak.

quote: Some forms of softcore or short-length sex are widely considered to be acceptable under the laws.
quote: Common sexual acts that would likely be deemed "obscene" under those guidelines are hardcore heterosexual sex, depictions of group sex, homosexual sex, fetish sex acts, and bondage.
