Erickson doesn't seem

Erickson doesn't seem terribly bright, nor terribly concerned about it.

you're correct

his ego is so big, its surprising actually.

War is an instrument entirely inefficient toward redressing wrong; and multiplies, instead of indemnifying losses.

I hate that

When people say a little bit of socialism is good, or a little redistribution is good. Ya, a little bit of the Bubonic plague is ok for you.

Nicely done Jan!

It must hurt a politicians psyche to go toe to toe with you Jan!

Hey Jan great work I love what you do. Do you think it would be too much for me to ask you for a list of your favorite socratic method questions you like to ask people when interviewing them for me to ask my friends and family to better see what their views are on the issues you often bring up like redistribution of wealth et cetera.

Jan keep it up - we love what you do

I listened to erikson long enough to realize he's just a like a little tweak on the hannitty or oreilly flavor. the gop tells him what to think, so he cant answer your questions.
He has no clue that he contradicted himself either.

He said - "too many folks classified as needy", so there aren't as many as the gubmint thinks there are.
to that I'd agree
so that would, in a logical person's brain mean, that there aren't too many to have the "needy" helped by volunteerism

BUT, oh no! he says "it depends"

Let me interpret the erickson "that depends" for everyone here.

that depends means this -
republican spending and redistributing = good! AND it is especially good if it means BILLIONS to Britain and Israel or any other "gop ally"
democrat resdistributing = BAD!!

I always thought of this guy

I always thought of this guy as a somewhat intelligent neocon hack, but it turns out he is nothing but a village idiot low level neocon.

I believe...

your question negates itself, it's inherently contradictory, so asking people this question gets you nowhere about 98.3% of the time.

he never really contradicted himself, he actually consistently answered the question.

I think you could've had a better interview with Kmele Foster, you will be hard-pressed to find a better friend of liberty than he, and you were even losing him.

The contradiction

The contradiction is: the gov. should protect peaceful citizens - the gov. should NOT protect peaceful citizens.

Jan I love what you do. I

Jan I love what you do. I just cannot understand how people keep painting themselves into this corner where they have to flee.

It isn't even like they HAVE to flee, they could say "oh, I see where your coming from" and then redefining their answer or basically say that your rights doesn't concern the government, it is above it. Which is an opinion that they can have, just not a very good one, imho, and not supported by the constitution and the bill of rights.

Or am I totally stupid and not understanding the basis of your line of thinking?
