Treaty of Tripoli Art. 11. As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion; as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquillity, of Mussulmen; and, as the said States never entered into any war, or act of hostility against any Mahometan nation, it is declared by the parties, that no pretext arising from religious opinions, shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.

Do any of the marxists in here know how one would calculate prices in the socialist commonwealth? How do you make sure the central planners are benevolent rulers who dont take advantage of their positions of power, or how do you plan on having a planned economy without central planners? Once you figure those out and make sure your little utopian experiment is completely voluntary then Im all for you going off and forming communes. But the moral problem with socialism in all its forms comes down the the necessary use of force to make sure everyone goes along with the game plan. Until then enjoy the mass starvation and murder that tends to go along with any good socialist regime.

"Please remember to vote in Nov...and get rid of the 90% of representatives that do not have the personal integrity to honor their Oath of Office." And replace them with whom? A bunch of other power hungry liars who will ignore their oaths? No thanks. I'm done believing that people seek positions of power for benevolent reasons. It just doesnt jive with reality.

The trolling loses its effect when you are too obvious Waffler. You normally do a much better job. I am disappointed.

The idiotic anti gun logic in here if extended would mean that nobody would be allowed to own knives, baseball bats, rolling pins, or anything that could conceivably be used as a weapon. The inanimate object isnt what you are to be protected from. Its the act of aggression. And for Waffler, you are incorrect...again. Nothing in today's quotes fail to recognize an individuals right to organize. By protecting an individuals rights you also protect their right to free association. If you would like to get together with a group of people and vote on something you are more than welcome to, but your group doesnt have a right to violently impose your decision on others. In the case of a "capitalist", (otherwise know as the people who provide you your cars, clothes, etc.) you can just "vote" by not buying their product if you dont like their policies.

Mike, one of the few things I can agree with Hamilton on is that the constitution was a frail and useless document. Too weak, too vague, and therefore too easily manipulated. The only thing it managed to do successfully was centralize power in a federal govt.

Taxation is theft

Nick

The only immigration problem we have is the welfare state. If you eliminate that then there is no issue with open borders. We had them for quite a long time and we thrived as a country. When people feel like immigrants are able to unfairly take advantage things paid for through taxation they get resentful.

Your ability to twist logic is entertaining at times Waffler. So it is your argument that people who love the state and its use of violence are the ones who trust their fellow man, but those who want people to be free of rulers and think that people will get along just fine without state violence dont? Sir, I believe you have that backwards.

Nick

Whats new Waffler? You are always confused.

Nick

Its not hard to fathom at all. Govt is force. In all of its varieties. It is an immoral institution. If you are ok with that then fine. You are entitled to your opinion but you should at least be willing to admit it.

Nick

Of course Waffler hates this quote. You could have just replaced "Some people have" with "Waffler has" in the beginning.

"November is trash removal time." Only to be replaced with a whole new pile of trash. The garbage trucks are lined up to fill the dump that is DC.

Troll is trolling. Chinese citizens are able to grow wealth now because they are moving away from pure communism and more in the direction of free markets. For more on this see Jim Rogers. Inheritance is not welfare. Welfare is money attained and redistributed through coercion. This is why people tend to not like it. Moral people are against the idea of using force to get what they want. The trolls entire world view depends on the use of force against others. He believes the use of violence will help to bring about his utopia. In this way he would make a lovely dictator. Inheritance is voluntarily given. If anything it is more like charity. But charity is a bad word to the troll. It implies that ones wealth belongs to himself and not the group.

Mike, Norwalk. I just want to let you know I appreciate you being the most sane and rational non partisan hack making posts here. Thank you.

I think he was referring to the malinvestment caused by easy credit/expansion of the money supply.
