International trade has essentially stopped, anyway. The Baltic Dry Index is at an unprecedented low, meaning that there is overcapacity and underutilization in the commodities (ores, grains, etc.) shipping industry. Stuff that is turned into stuff we buy. Why is it so low? Because we’re not buying stuff any more. The economy is already dead. We just don’t know it yet.
I like reactive tariffs. If your market is closed to us, ours is closed to you on the same terms. Drop your barriers to trade, and ours will also drop.
No more of these trade deals we’ve seen, starting with NAFTA. Ross Perot predicted that NAFTA would tank us. People sat idly by while our industry was pilfered and given to China.
How are we going to defeat an invasion and defend ourselves, if we don’t even produce lead in the United States any more, for the love of Christ?

The Republicans in Congress are, as usual, asleep at the switch.
There is NOTHING stopping THEM from IMPEACHING Hillary Clinton. So impeached, she could *never* hold public office again!

Eh. This is a non-story. This guy was trolling, and it’s beyond obvious.

Common Core math.

Doubtless Massie and Amash have a well thought out reason for their vote.
These are two of the liberty movement’s stars. Ron Paul types, especially Amash. They’re who I’d be, in Congress.

God gave us free will so that we could *choose* to follow Him or not.
God doesn’t want slaves. He wants people who *want* to follow His word.

Net, it’s probably a plus.
It would definitely be a plus for me, if the rest of his rhetoric showed any depth of thought. Rand Paul spoiled me. Rand Paul + coarse language would be a fantastic President.

See, that’s where you get it wrong.
I’m not a Trump guy. I just give him style points. That **** was funny.
Also, I don’t mind if you want to look like a stooge here. That **** is funny, too.

Let me leave the area first, please.

Gotta say you’re bugging here.
“The Jooos” aren’t the problem. “The Commies” are. “The Bankers” are (they run “The Commies”).
These are not specifically Jewish institutions. There are lots of Jews who support them, yes. Just like there are lots of non-Jews who support them.
The problem is one of Evil, and that’s not a Jewish trait any more than it’s an inherent trait of black people or anyone else.

It’s not a Jew thing. I know some Jews who don’t cotton to Internationalism, Marxism or any kind of un-Constitutional global control, gun confiscation, and so on.
Look to the bankers, and you’ll notice that (yes, conspiracy hat on, but if it’s true there’s no shame in wearing it): they are headed up by Rothschild banks. The Rothschilds claim to be Jews, and maybe they are, but I don’t think that’s the influence that corrupts them.
We were told by Christ to beware the Synagogue of Satan, people who claim to be Jews but who are not. That fits the bill a little better, in my opinion.
To all the people who are going to call Norm D. Plume an idiot, I say don't. Norm D. Plume shouldn't be called an idiot. Shame, shame, shame on anyone for calling Norm D. Plume an idiot.
Don't you feel better Norm D. Plume for me reprimanding anyone going to call you an idiot?

Mmm… I smell it in the air. Like a dirty diaper.
The other shoe’s about to drop.
Beck will start leading his masses towards Jeb! Jeb! the Honorable, our new George Washington!

Was she a citizen at the time of his birth?
Then he’s a natural born citizen.
Obama could be a natural born citizen, in fact. If his father were Frank Marshall Davis. Is that the fact that Nancy Pelosi thought was “too embarrassing to release”, after claiming that she had seen documentation of his eligibility to run for the Presidency?
February 6, 2016 at 10:59pm
Nope. Blaming “The Jews” or anyone else but “us stupid Americans” for our problems isn’t a Ron Paul crowd thing.
February 6, 2016 at 10:57pm
There’s “rebuilding the military” into a global police force to further the cause of empire, and then there’s “rebuilding the military” to do what it is Constitutionally supposed to do: DEFEND US.

Not isolationist. Non-interventionist. There is a huge, huge difference.

It’s not a horrible answer.
It is damning him with faint praise.

Reagan could have vetoed amnesty. He could have vetoed the gun legislation. He could have vetoed tax increases. He could have done lots of really good things, but he didn’t.
Reagan talked a good game. In the end, though, it was just more of the same.

Better go back to school, then.
A baby born in such a situation would be a _citizen_, yes. Being born to an American citizen abroad gets you that.
A _natural_born_citizen_ is a term with a specific meaning, which hasn’t changed since those words were penned. It was a term that was known then, but which is ignored now.
A _natural_born_citizen_ is born of TWO _CITIZEN_ parents.
Obama didn’t have that (unless you admit that Frank Marshall Davis was his father).
Cruz doesn’t have that, and is ineligible.
Rubio doesn’t have that. Neither of his parents were citizens at the time of his birth.
