“If this isn’t proof positive of the demise of America, then what is?”
Well people accepting that self-sacrifice for the common good is a virtue is proof positive of the demise of individualism in favor of collectivism thus the idea of America. This, however, is just a publicity stunt by secular activists. They don’t really worship the devil. They don’t even believe in the devil, nor are any elementary kids going to attend such a meeting. The purpose is to anger non-secularists so they act irrationally.
"nor are any elementary kids going to attend such a meeting."
You're probably right, their christian parentsand peer pressure from other kids and their christian parents, won't let them.
"And the enemy is not only disguising its true intent, cloaking its wickedness in a guise of free thought and with a cloak of kindness – it’s setting sights on the youngest, most malleable minds of all: the children."
And what do you think the traditional churches are doing? They are pretty big on brainwashing children as well. Because it is very difficult to throw off ideas indoctrinated into you as a child. So if you can get them young, you'll have most of them for life

I think he should just play fullback at a real sport, but kudos.
Please! Didn’t Bush call just an old dusty document? Neither party has come close to adhering to the constitution at all. Not in the least. You should be embarrassed for suggesting it. The Orwellian police state we’re living in has always been something conservatives have wanted. They’re slightly better on the 2nd amendment. That’s it.

When did blind obedience become an American virtue?
just : When the Socialist Internationalists gained control of the so-called Democrat Party.
Angry is right. If the government is corrupt, is fostering a culture of blind obedience what we should be doing? I mean I'm sure the British said something akin to attention you darn colonists; never resit His Majesty's Soldiers.
What if Hillary wins and we reach a new level of corruption? Do we still go along with it? I bet Franklin here would say yes, and no matter how bad it gets.
If the cops are wrong then the courts will side with you.
Refusal to cooperate just makes them right, no matter how wrong they were.
There are situations that call for it. Not your entire life moron. If you are in a raging inferno and one person knows where to go and says follow me you do.
It's not about blind obedience, but rather choosing the right venue to resist. The side of the road, one on one with a cop, is not the right place to argue the constitution.
I can't help myself justangry, what's your definition of "blind obedience"? Is it similar to "blind faith"?
I dunno. Ask all the "Conservatives" here who demand it and then proclaim immediate submission to the govt is how we need to live.
When did anarchy become one?

And I’m so excited too. I can’t wait to find out which two-bit wannabe tyrant you statists pick to rule me…
Do you fear shanks and personal attacks from the national populism front or the Rx addled leftists?

Hillary’s adds in Ohio are just a collection of Trump soundbites.
 September 23, 2016 at 7:22pm
Yeah, I don’t know why he did it either. At this point all he did was disappoint the people who supported him. If he did it right away and said, “I promised I would support the nominee” it would be a non-story. Waiting forever then saying he supported him, shows a sign of weakness. It makes it look likes he’s afraid of Priebus’ threats. Wussy. Oh well, he’s a neocon pretending to be a constitutionalist anyway, so who cares, right?
Ted did it because at the end of the day, he is an opportunist. Sure, Ted is good as far as senators go.....
But for the first 6 MONTHS of the republican primary, Ted spoke so highly of Trump. Meanwhile, at that same time, many of the libertarian types were on this website talking about how bad Trump was and that Cruz should almost be disqualified for leg humping like he did.
Let the Cruz-bashing begin....

@blinknight, In short, they think it’s pragmatic not to stand behind the non-aggression principle despite it being the libertarian’s only real core tenet. Johnson and Weld are centrist republicans. That being said, gun to the head, they’d be my pick. They are by FAR the best on civil liberties. They sound better on economic issues and foreign policy to me as well.

@Tired_of_Pastels, I think for the most part we’re all in agreement regarding Skankzilla. Even the lefties don’t really like her.

More like the Libertarian Party has been a plague on libertarianism.
JUST, very well said.
BLINK, the LP does not represent the basic ideals of Libertarianism any more than the westboro baptist church represents Christianity.
Blink, we had an opportunity to put up a real candidate and gain some respectability and we put this fool up?? This is how the party is a plague upon us.
Again, in what sense? I didn't say anyone was wrong, but simply declaring something without explanation or exposition doesn't help.
There's a Libertarian establishment, just like every other party, and they want their insiders.

BLINK, in the sense that the LP is made up of LINOs. And as such they distort the real understanding of what is Libertarianism.

What’s the difference? Both push the narrative that sacrifice for the common good is a virtue.
 September 22, 2016 at 5:55pm
Meh, I don’t know anything about the case. I hope justice is served, but that’s a lot to ask for when the state investigates and prosecutes itself. I can easily see her being acquitted if she’s guilty as well as being set up as a sacrificial lamb to appease the mob if she’s innocent. I wouldn’t want to be a cop today.

Ah… So why did he go from “We should default on our debt” to “We should borrow more money”?

a nation with its own government, occupying a particular territory:
“the country’s increasingly precarious economic position”
synonyms: nation · (sovereign) state · kingdom · realm · territory · [more]
districts and small settlements outside large towns, cities, or the capital:
“the airfield is right out in the country” · [more]
synonyms: woods · back of beyond · hinterland · bush ·
How can you claim that the country and its government are separate entities when the definition of county includes the government?
