Hi Granger! Good to see you

Hi Granger! Good to see you active here. I'm about ready to pluck my eyes out here.

Hi Unknownuser

Thank you and just remember.. they've got nothing and why they tear down what we've got.

Did you know that if you

Did you know that if you block another user they actually disappear from sight. As in...they can no longer read your posts and you don't see theirs. It's a useful tool! I had to use it today. Some people on here just are not worth...existence.

Yes

I sincerely believe in the freedom of speach, and while I may not like what others say, and not agree with them, or how they vote (or how the voting on DP is rigged) I will stand for the liberty of them to have their say, and for me to have mine too.

All people have their worth, though it may not be what we personally need. We all change, grow, learn, experience life our own way, and it's ok if it's not all the same, or happy, or nice.. or even real.

What's important is our own choices and actions, and what we do and fail to do, accepting the responsibilities and consequences.

If the blocking tool helps you.. GOOD. Be like water, don't be dammed.

I love a friendly debate.

I love a friendly debate. It's healthy. I don't mind disagreeing even. But some people on here are vulgar and obscene. That I will not tolerate. I am a woman of Liberty. I have put my time in. I am a mother, daughter, and wife. Some one on here particular was totally out of line and out of step with what we are trying to achieve. When someone actually uses obscene language and filthy name calling to every response...it's time to make them disappear. I'm all for freedom of speach but some people need to learn manners and respect.

Me, too :))

When I see obscene language and filty name calling, I think of a garbage truck looking to make a dump, or germ infecting every one it virtually touches, so I "hold my breath", and move on.

((((((((Unknownuser)))))))))) Thank you for not being a garbage truck or germ.

No...thank youuuu Granger!

No...thank youuuu Granger! There are ways to disagree without being vulgar and obscene! You do it quite well ; )

.

where did all these libs come from???lol
were they cloaked this whole entire time...

I was here since its inception but changed my moniker and everything after hurricane Ike destroyed Galveston with a 15' storm surge.

Ive been here 5 yrs and knew there were a few libs here, but I thought they realized their woes with their ideas... unfortunately not.

This will soon become the daily hillary- im pretty sure!

"OH NO! He has a SON?" Neoconservatives and Liberals EVERYWHERE!

Make like water and flow

Make like water and flow around them! Use the blocker.

would you trade a 10% cut right here and now, not down the road

off military and social security, medicare, not based off future baseline budget but a real cut, for a 5% increase in taxes, if it were on the table?

i'd cut 90% of the military

i'd cut 90% of the military immediately.

lawrence

amash can call for 50% and still call for a cut deal to taxes

and it would never fly and he would have won on his principles still, get home and get called a traitor on dp

i'd cut 90% of the military

i'd cut 90% of the military immediately.

lawrence

No.

It needs to be slashed, all of it. Spending and taxes.. that's how you right an economy.

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution, inevitable.

depth of a 16 year old

what if a few regulation roll-backs were thrown in to the mix? in reality that'll never be acceptable, but if you proposed it, at least you can tell dems and gop 'look, i proposed a condition for the extra tax you wanted, but it's your side that refused to negotiate' you achieve your goal while avoid being called obstructionist, but in reality you're still obstructing against more spending, which is our goal anyway, right?

your 'no' seems much more based on face, because you have already chosen a side and want to establish your face, rather than a black and white situation. it's easy to sit at home and do that

all this is just talk, and talk can be anything. conservatives can easily set a request for government rollback never acceptable to dems and the gop as condition for tax hike, just to dare the other side to engage. it can be done in so many ways. that's why it's important to know whether the person you vote for still has his heart in the right place and not possess the depth of a 16 year old

Funny because that's how I see the majority of you

You're big on shortsightedness.

I see things changing, but not because we've compromised.. I see local people taking positions.. I see State people taking positions. I see multiple avenues to my goals.. you have blinders on but you'll refuse to believe that because you think you're eyes are on the ball.

But you're wrong. People won't follow your message because it's more of the same.. promise one thing and do another.. say you're for one thing but come out against that very thing. The duplicity stinks and people smell it. People like Rand and maybe even Justin now are missing the bigger picture... There are millions upon millions that refuse to vote because they're SICK of the same ole.. Dr.Paul inspired millions to move again and only someone like him will ever be able to continue it.

This site gets scarier and scarier every day.

Funny how this movement used to praise Ron Paul for his refusal to compromise, and now it has nothing but praise for compromise.

If Amash and Rand continue to be viewed as leaders in this movement, I don't have much hope for its future.

We have made all this progress with a no compromise message, we've already seen what compromise does to the libertarian message, just look at the Libertarian Party going nowhere fast.

If we go down a path of compromise, not only will we lose our effectiveness, our integrity, and our appeal, but we will lose all the progress we've made so far.

In full agreement, Josh.

All we can do is keep trying in the hopes others won't be swayed by these people.

there's nothing funny about this whole ordeal

perhaps you should calm down and think about it carefully for once

I've been thinking about it since I was 10

My Liberty is always on my mind.

"I don't believe in raising

"I don't believe in raising taxes but I will not take anything off the table"--Justin Amash. A lot of Rand haters like this guy more then Rand when Rand Paul will NOT compromise on the tax issue.

Rand has already eluded to voting with the democraps

He just hid it well.. Watch and see what he does. My bet is, he'll vote for taxes under the guise of "making the dems own it".

He said he would...

...vote "absent" in the name of letting the dems have it. Not vote with them.
