Marx had his heart in a right place. Unfortunately human nature confounded Marx.

This is absurd. TARP, a crap load of new regulations, the expansion of the Department of Education, medicare, SEC investigation records destroyed after 9/11, Donald Rumsfield keeping his job after “losing 2 trillion”, the PATRIOT ACT, TSA, DHS, etc. There’s nothing good about that. The best you got is he seems to care, but so did Jimmy Carter.

Liberalism has gone from believing government’s only legitimate role is to protect property to this.

I don’t understand why anyone would not want to protect their fellow citizens from an oppressive government. On the flip side, I don’t want to validate the oppressive government’s power by voting for it.

I’ve never been asked, and it’s the only reason I’m registered to vote.

Not that I know of, but it doesn’t matter when you’re talking about the largest prison population in the history of the world, and it’s a crime to not buy a policy from a company that our politicians are heavily invested in.

Just post online that you believe in jury nullification and they’ll never bother you.
I just tell them that I know how to read body language and voice inflections and if I hear one lie from any prosecutor, cop, lawyer or witness I'm going to vote for an acquittal no matter what.
I never get selected.
I've never been asked, and it's the only reason I'm registered to vote.
"...and it’s the only reason I’m registered to vote."
I don't understand this part.
Here in Florida they use the driver license database and mail out jury duty 'requests' that have an opt out check box. You just check it mail it back if you don't want to do it.
I don't understand why anyone would not want to protect their fellow citizens from an oppressive government. On the flip side, I don't want to validate the oppressive government's power by voting for it.
Thank you for the reply.

You know there are people in jail for not mowing their yard, put in an mental hospital because they post truther stuff on FB, and collect rain water. Not to mention the US prison population exceeds that of the height of the Gulag system. You really are a dumb f’ing troll.

No, at the moment. They only censor and salience the ability to show movies, or people allowing to speak at universities, or citizens to talk to their 'peers' on at Universities. And force citizens into re-education because that don't have a certain belief. Or force citizens into labor against their will for others. Hence the force labor and forced contracts to obtain mandated/forced health Insurance, and to make wedding cakes and participate in weddings against their will. Or lose everything.
And you are worried about "twerking" at a memorial for the dead, and for the ones that defended there country. -- See what you are missing from all this. Isn't that Russia and U.S. are different on many things. But when it is all said and done. There is a common respect for soldiers and people that have served their country. And that common bold line crosses our differences. And that is something that the Russians soldiers and U.S. soldiers do have in common. Is the respect for their comrades.
But all the dancers had to do was 'think' before doing what they did. A simple thing lie another place/location and/or video angle not showing the the memorial would have had a totally different outcome.
But funny how you complain about this. But fail to complain about the same tactics used here against religious beliefs, or the citizens right to do what they believe. If you have a child. We will remember this the next time you tell them “NO”.

@Zipit, You’re tired of the “I told you so’s”, “Ron Paul, Ron Paul, Ron Paul…”, and “GB sucks”, but you do appreciate Jefferson. I think I understand.

Point taken and I agree if the protests are free from provocateurs. We can’t tell if they’re actual protestors or provocateurs that are causing the destruction so we always assume it’s the former. Either way, it’s a shame that a few idiots can ruin what seems like a legitimate protest.
Bussed in by radical groups. It's simple. Their names are on every printed sign.

@Zipit, Yeah I get that some, perhaps many, (myself included) libertarians just talk in a way that only other libertarians can relate to, and it sounds obnoxious and condescending to non-libertarians who think we’re too extreme but, I’ll take a socially awkward free market classic liberal over a charismatic collectivist any day of the week, and I think love of Thomas Jefferson’s ideas should be common ground here.
 April 25, 2015 at 7:45pm
Never thought I’d see the day that Jefferson’s writings would be down-voted on the Blaze.
There’s a group that down-votes pretty much anything coming from Soybomb.
No one down voted TJ Angry! Just tired of Soy's mindless lecturing, that's all!
Perhaps 'mean-spirited' is a better way to say it....anyway...it's uncalled for.

Wouldn’t it be easier for China to just give it to them directly? They’re neighbors.
IDK, I’m sure he’d go for Massie or Amash. Notice how libertarians are back at each others’ throats now that Ron Paul is out of the picture though? I know you didn’t trust the guy, but even you have to recognize how much Ron Paul influenced/unified the libertarian movement. None of the libertarian / objectivist thinkers that preceded him, as great as they were, have come close to accomplishing what he did.
 April 25, 2015 at 3:55pm
I think he loves America because he can do whatever the hell he wants and its citizens passively accept it.
 April 25, 2015 at 3:53pm
I should have used minarchist. What can I say? I’m a fringe libertarian.
 April 25, 2015 at 2:35pm
If I were a statist, I think I’d vote for the only candidate that said he rid us of this Stasi BS.
