Right...

All of you are online, so I presume you're on some sort of computer. Care to check where the computer you're using right now to type into these forums, made?

Oh, and the Internet, the invention of US Defense, is powered by switches and routers. I wonder where are they made?

Okay, sugar, i'm gonna type real slow so you can comprehend. :wink:

With the ObummerCare legislation, one was required to buy insurance or pay a fine. If one opted to do neither, the government could take punitive action. If one continued to disregard the government tyranny, one could be put in jail. If one refused to go to jail the government's gun comes into play. Now, I know that you as an authoritarian commie find nothing wrong with government coercion of the citizenry, but I as a Libertarian will not willingly submit to tyranny.

you can't support tariffs and consider yourself a libertarian with a straight face.

Like, it's cool, you can identify as what ever you like, who really cares. But have you considered that you're not libertarian? Maybe you're just a christian conservative who can't be bothered voting?

If you reply to this post, I will not read it, so don't bother. Unless you really want to for whatever reason. Who gives a shit anyway.

Simple. I could give a shit about a fucking commie's opinion about anything. Fall back into the ash heap of history.

Your position is so lame, you couldn't even defend it, so you just ignored my response and resorted to personal attacks, which I just responded to in kind.

For some reason, Turkey's alleged video proof hasn't been corroborated by anyone. But reports are that Saud is going to claim it was an interrogation "gone bad" and that top officials didn't know about it.

If we've learned nothing else from recent history, hopefully we've at least learned that jumping to conclusions is always the best first response.

Trump promised $1 million to charity if Warren proved her Native American DNA. Now he’s waffling.
Quote:
(...)
Trump, with glee, told the rally crowd he looked forward to making Warren “prove” her Native American heritage on the debate stage if the two were to square off.

I’m going to get one of those little [DNA testing] kits and in the middle of the debate, when she proclaims she’s of Indian heritage … ‚” Trump said. “And we will say, ‘I will give you a million dollars to your favorite charity, paid for by Trump, if you take the test and it shows you’re an Indian.’"

The crowd cheered.
(...)
Standing on a soggy White House lawn Monday, Trump denied he had ever made the promise.

Who cares?” he told reporters, when asked if he had heard about Warren releasing the results of her DNA test.

Another reporter brought up his promise of a $1 million charity donation.

I didn’t say that,” Trump said. “Nah, you’d better read it again.
Well, technically he is right. He did not promise a $1 million charity donation, he just announced he might bring it up during a possibly upcoming debate.

Trump is saber rattling at the fed saying fed is messed up because rates are being risen too fast.

opposite of what every libertarian is saying.

He's basically a working class democrat.

Rod Rosenstein claims he was only joking about wearing a wire. 3 FBI agents claim Rosenstein was not joking. Rosenstein refuses to testify under oath on the matter.

Thats the magical paradoxical conditions of all of this...

Trump says a wall is needed -> called out for being a racist -> people march to illegally enter America because "trump is a racist" -> the need for the wall is clearly shown.

It was needed and that is why there is a "fence" a fence extended by Obama iirc so just because people have an issue with Trump and their default response is REEEEEEE, they cannot step back and go "you know what, that needs to be done"

Russia violating the nuclear deal -> Obama criticizes it -> Russia continues -> Trump threatens to revolk -> REEEEEE ... meanwhile Russia still developing
Germany pushing massive trade imbalance -> Obama criticizes -> Germany continues -> Trump threatens tariffs -> REEEEEE
NK -->
Israel & UN -->
...

The list goes on. They just see Trump, they don't look at why or the actual policy

You need to change your news sources.

From what I'm reading, people are having euphoric orgasm about Trump, while chanting U.S.A! U.S.A!

Yes, they are traveling to America because "trump is a racist".

That doesn't make even a bit of sense.

While it is not quite an ad, as such: https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1054874705491120133.

Congratulations on your role in the shadow cabinet.
(In case anyone missed the joke, yes, I am aware of the timestamps, thanks.)

:lol:

I didn't realize Obama supported it. I just recalled there being prominent support (pretty sure HRC supported it).


I'd consider a role in the Shadow Cabinet, although I doubt I'd be of enough value that they'd pay me sufficiently to move to Sin City.
