    SMOKEY, a good analysis. What BeckhoefferMLKGandhi fails to grasp is that without the threat of violence by Malcolm X (whom I respect far more than MLK) there would have been no need for the US gubment to recognize/deal with MLK. Same with Gandhi. Britain was only willing to deal with Gandhi because it was easier than dealing with those Indians who were actually willing to fight for their rights and thereby cause real suffering to their British “overlords”. .

    BeckhoefferMLKGandhi does not seem to grasp that those who are in power via violence (all gubments) are only threatened by those who are willing to also use violence to take them out. A carrot may be enjoyable but it is useless without a stick especially when it comes to an understanding of how to control a gubment. A stick wielded by a gubment is the definition of tyranny. Gubments neither need nor want a carrot.

    WILD, “They are coming for you Skunk.”

    Who is “they”? Muslims? They do not scare me because they are not the biggest threat to me. The biggest threat to me is my own gubment and the idiots who support it. And by support I mean those in the military and in Law Enforcement – and that includes the US amerikans who are proud to have their sons and daughters serve the evil Leviathan that is US amerika.

    KARAMAZOV, “@skunkbear: Why don’t you provide some evidence for your assertion that the South was willing to completely give up slavery before the end of the war?”

    A very fair question. Unfortunately, I am away from my library tonight. But I will get back to you about this tomorrow.

    “Economics definitely played a role, but there was no single greater cause than the slavery issue. If you want to get really specific, it was the threat against the expansion of slavery that led the South to rebel.”

    Fully disagree. As in all things follow the money. The single greatest issue was one of tariffs. The South was going to initiate a comparative free trade market versus that of the Northern protectionist market. Britain, France, Mexico, even the Russians were all actively engaged with this possible new development proposed by the Southerners.

    Lincoln himself said his goal was to preserve the Union with or without slavery.

    REVOLUTION, “What happened to looking for the next George Washington?”

    Did BeckhoefferMLKGandhi not declare Romney to be the next GW?

    UP, excellent! Glenn BonhoefferMLK’s self-righteousness is superior to everyone else’s worldview.

    EDG, “The GOP keeps losing elections and otherwise is having a hard time because they are straying from Conservatism, especially on Social issues.”

    Would disagree. Conservatism loses on the social issues because the social issues the conservatives endorse are anti-Liberty.

    TUTTLE, ” He supports a left-wing foreign welfare state.”

    I would agree except it is not just a “left-wing foreign welfare state” that is the issue.

    The D’s and the R’s both support foreign welfare states (as well as a domestic welfare state). They just quibble over who gets the US taxpayers’ money.

    The principle that US Citizens should not have their hard earned money confiscated at the point of a gun and given to others is completely irrelevant to both crime syndicates.

    MURRAY, “I don’t trust any of them unless they are hardcore second amendment supporters. Without the second the rest of the bill of rights is just TP.”

    Oh so very much agree!!! The Natural Law Right of Self Defense is the basis of all of Liberty. Anyone who in any way tries to usurp this absolute right should be considered an absolute enemy. This includes everyone e.g. Charles Krauthammer. Yet the twits on the right fawn over this demon.

    TUTTLE, “Is he loyal to the US or Israel?”

    IMO Levin’s rabid anti-Ron Paul stance was based on Dr. Paul’s refusal to hold Israel as the most holy of foreign policy.

    MONK, “He’s a Constitutional fireball that the left can’t silence.”

    Disagree. Levin thinks the solution to the federal gubment’s disobeying the US Constitution is to have more amendments added to it for which they will only also disobey.

    A problem cannot be solved until the correct understanding of the problem is diagnosed. To wit: the US Constitution is itself the problem. The USC is the foundation for this current tyranny. There is but one solution: peaceful secession.

    WILD, “I have some Jack Daniels but I don’t believe in rehab. That is for quitters!”

    On this we can fully agree!

    WILD, “Deny nuke capability. Period.”

    How is this “complete annihilation”?

    STRAWBERRY, “Beck is like any other money hungry , power driven man..he could care less. This is all a PR game…”

    I must disagree with you slightly on your premise. IMO Beck is not motivated by money but rather by ego.

    He seems desperate to have a cause for which to lead so as to be a historical figure.

    Having said this I think he is a really decent guy but fatefully obsessed with a longing that just wont come. He is just not as special as he thinks he should be. This IMO is his inner “demon”. I do wish him well though.

    WILD, “Another alternative would be to just go in an take over their country and say to everyone else ‘What?’ What are you gonna do about it?”

    And how do you propose to fund this “noble act”?

    WILD, “We have to have the resolve to bring a gun to a gun fight…”

    The question is not about the tactics; it is, Why is this fight our fight?

    KARAMAZOV, “The Confederacy fought for their evil desire to enslave human beings…”

    May I suggest you do some more research on the this. Hint: start with economics as to the cause of the war.

    If the South fought for the cause of slavery then why did they offer to free the slaves if the North would just let them go in peace?

    TRIGUS, “Send them all to Glenn’s ranch.”

    Is there anyone who truly believes these people are going to be sent back from where they came from?

    So then there are going to be children who will need to be adopted. “Beckhoeffer” has plenty of money to make such adoptions so maybe he should “put his money where his heart is” and do the right thing especially when it is the hard thing to do?

    SHAQUELILI, “There is only one solution for the Muslim problem; complete annihilation.”

    And how exactly do you propose to do this?

    STRAWBERRY, “Hopefully you are not talking about the US military, which I and 8 generations of my family of AMERICANs served in.”

    If your family fought for the South during the War of Southern Independence then they were the last ones to serve with honor (the War 1812 is questionable). Otherwise all those other years of “service” were in propagating evil.
