General Discussion / Gary Johnson to the Libertarian Party?
« on: December 08, 2011, 01:29:45 PM »
Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson has been sending strong signals he is considering running for the Libertarian Party presidential candidacy since he is being shutout of the Republican debates. Hell, the Libertarian Party of Florida is hosting a rally for him next Monday night.

Thoughts on this happening? If Johnson comes in and busts his hump, then I'll welcome him with open arms. However, I'm skeptical this is just an attempt to get on the ballot and the LP is the low hanging fruit.

A team know one cares about had to grease some politicians hands to get public funding for a new stadium, shocking I know.

Shame on Discovery for scrapping this episode and thinking Americans are too stupid to deal with it

General Discussion / Agenda 21
« on: November 17, 2011, 08:06:18 AM »
Maybe I spent too much time next to the John Birch Society booth, but it seems Agenda 21 is the latest flavor of the month for conservatives to be pissed off about.

Is it just conspiracy theory babble or is there something to it?

General Discussion / Video Games

Surprised there isn't a running thread on this topic already. I'm sure I'm not the only one who enjoys death simulators.

When I get a few bills paid off I plan on picking up Uncharted 3 and Assassin's Creed: Revelations from this year's holiday crop. Maybe Battlefield 3. I'm protesting the Call of Duty because Activision is the worst franchise milker in the industry.

A very well deserved bitch slap to Wayne Allen Root

General Discussion / Wikileaks' Julian Assange to be extradited to Sweden

Sadly, it comes as no surprise this is going to happen. Minute he lands in Sweden, Washington will fax their own extradition paperwork.

I have a feeling that "insurance" file is going to be opening soon.

General Discussion / Ron Paul Does Not Rule Out A Third-Party Run

Honestly, if he doesn't get the Republican nomination I think running as an Independent or grabbing a 3rd party nomination may do more damage than good at this point. Clearly the media is making a concentrated effort to shutout Ron Paul and Gary Johnson and that would only continue if he ran on his own.

I respect Dr.Paul immensely for promoting the message of Liberty and for presenting it to the American people. However, what he needs to do is to show his followers the way to other liberty minded candidates. One man can not sustain a movement and he should start helping others who want to follow in his wake.

General Discussion / Talk about a hatchet job from the news
« on: October 26, 2011, 02:12:27 PM »
Long story short, the Libertarian Party of Duval county organized a protest of the city giving $1.25 million to JP Morgan to  move jobs here. We went to an Occupy Jacksonville event and passed out flyers, hoping people would show up.

Somehow the news caught wind of the story and came out. They even interviewed our chairman, Curtis Wolf. This is what the news reported.

General Discussion / Halloween events are "too scary"
« on: October 24, 2011, 12:46:32 AM »
I can't find a clip online right now, but here is the jist of it. The local zoo runs an annual Halloween event which serves at the main "Family" Halloween event in the city.

This year, they added several areas that were more on par with major Haunted House attractions in the area in order to attract more guests. They made signs in front of these areas saying "Not suitable for children under 12" and having a separate logo for these attractions.

Yet parents still took young kids into these areas and now they're blaming the zoo.  On par with suing McDonalds because their coffee is hot or what?

Time for me to go into rant mode for a moment. I was at a http://www.nullifynow.com/ convention yesterday representing the Libertarian Party of Florida. The LPF was also a presenting sponsor of this event, which cost a decent chunk of change.

One of the speakers, Joe Wolverton, starts his speech by asking how many people are registered 3rd party or NPA. Then he goes, how many of you agree with Ron Paul?  He then said "Since Florida is a closed primary state, you need to change your registration to Republican or else any hope of electing a good candidate will be lost."

I've had my issues with the Paulies, but this was just rude. Trashing an organization that helped pay your speaking fee, hotel room, etc and helping to promote the whole "Ron Paul or were doomed" idea is abunch of BS.

Quote
Tea Party Nation President Judson Phillips said denying the right to vote to those who do not own property "makes a lot of sense" during a weekly radio program.

"The Founding Fathers originally said, they put certain restrictions on who gets the right to vote," Phillips said. "It wasn't you were just a citizen and you got to vote."

"Some of the restrictions, you know, you obviously would not think about today," he continued. "But one of those was you had to be a property owner. And that makes a lot of sense, because if you’re a property owner you actually have a vested stake in the community."

"If you're not a property owner, you know, I'm sorry but property owners have a little bit more of a vested interest in the community than non-property owners."
....
During the same radio program, Phillips discussed with David DeGerolamo, the founder of tea party group North Carolina Freedom, the repeal of various constitutional amendments.

"Of course, when people talk, three Amendments that really are the only ones that seriously get talked about getting repealed: the 16th Amendment, for the income tax, and we can only hope that happens; the 17th Amendment for having the appointment of Senators got back to state legislatures; and the 26th Amendment, I believe it is," Phillips said. "Do you know which one that is, David?"

"No, but I know which one I want repealed," responded DeGerolamo. "I want the 14th Amendment repealed."

The first clause of the 14th Amendment grants birthright citizenship to anyone born in the US, regardless of whether their parents are citizens. The second and third clause prohibits the government from depriving persons of life, liberty, or property without due process and requires the government to provide equal protection under the law, respectively.

"I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we won't hold it against them, whatever decisions they make, to just let them help this country recover," Gov. Bev Perdue, a Democrat, said, according to a report by the Raleigh News & Observer. "You want people who don't worry about the next election."
