So now it seems you're calling yourself that. If you thought that before hand why did you even reply at all in the first place? You have no arguments and you aren't winning me over so instead of talking and debating you just personally attack. I'm not surprised at all. It seems the only thing libertarians know how to do.

I don’t believe we have to actually explain this one…

An Internet troll, or simply troll in Internet slang, is someone who intentionally posts controversial messages in an on-line community such as an on-line discussion forum with the intention of baiting other users into an argumentative response.

No, people ignore you because you act like a child who isn't getting enough attention. The ignore button is our only real recourse. It is as close as we can come to putting you in your naughty chair.

There is a big difference between civil discourse and childish behaviour.

It is time to look away, becaue it is like the movie Merlin. If you turn your back on them and look away, they cease to exist and fade way.

Once again if Ron Paul was president he wouldn't have that power. Please try reading the Constitution okay? You might want to check that document out to see what powers the president actually has available to him with that whole checks and balance thing the founding fathers put in place.


I’m not sure what power you’re referring too, but you are probably right, the state would have that power. No one is talking about eliminating the federal government, if that’s what you mean, just restoring it.

Guess what? There is a key word in "privitization" and that words is *gasps* "private." If everything is private than nobody has to know anything except the leadership of that company and nobody can do anything. Look for example at the Halliburton/kbr deal with the girl accusing someone who works there of rape and that whole sad situation. Again I don't know about you but I like my government to be open to me and I like to know what the hell is going on. I thought people had enough of this "blind trust" bs with Bush and company but apparently some people haven't had enough.



again, the halliburton deal was with "connected" folks on the inside (part of the problem)

and just because a company is private doesnt mean that if they break the law they are immune from punishment. (theres the other problem, the bush admin. refusing to put its contractors under US laws)

fix these problems and the problem will go away because if your caught doing something illegal, your in jail and your company loses the contract. that will shape those shady companies up real quick.
And again, it wasnt just private corporations doing the raping and such, regular US soldiers (with the government oversight included) managed to rape women over there.

I must enjoy testing my patience though. I have resisted the urge to ignore. It is kind of like watching a train wreck. I just can't bring myself to look away yet.


Do what I did and slap that ALERT button. Ranting off-topic and provoking arguments with a bad-attitude is only entertaining for the first page and a half. Like I said, this could have been a good thread, 4 pages ago. Now it's getting on 6.

I would like to present the possibility that you're just here to fight with Ron Paul supporters, and you've been warned accordingly.

I believe that that warn was for inappropriate language, not for derailing or trolling. I would really like to see one issued for extensive quoting to be honest though. Minus the re-quotes this is probably only a 4 page thread so far.

Right because you guys have been so perfect. I've just been doing nothing but debating and posting my opinions the whole time. It's you all who are acting like the immature children putting people on ignore and warning just because I happen to have different views. I guess this is now the Ron Paul kiss ass fan club here huh? I guess I didn't get the memo. And I guess I didn't get the memo either that people are only allowed to post in threads where you agree with everything each other says.

The lies and cover up are so blatant that I 100% believe that our media is 100% controlled, I need no more proof.

This day keeps getting more unbelievable! For those of you who might not know yet, today is quickly turning into a spectacular fundraising day for Ron Paul. You've already raised over $3.6 million since midnight!


Currently, I am reading a book about the Dollar collapse, in which government intervention is discussed as well. While reading your post one specific quote from this book came to my mind:


When asked to offer a toast at the annual dinner of the New York Press Club in 1953, John Swinton, the editor-in-chief of The New York Times, a man revered by his peers as the dean of his profession, rose to the occasion by finding the courage to make the following confession.

"There is no such thing as an independent press in America at this date of the world’s history. You know it and I know it. There is not one of you who dares to write your honest opinions, and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print.

"I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinion out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar salaries for similar things, and any of you who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job. If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone.

"The business of the journalist is to destroy the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it and I know it, and what folly is this toasting an independent press?

"We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks; they pull the strings, and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities, and our lives are all the property of other men.

"We are intellectual prostitutes."

To be honest, you could have simply posted about Ron Paul and his poll results. Debate us on that.

Instead you have gone way off the edge and pulled this thread with you, all 8 pages of it (so far). Please stop, and as I said 5 pages ago, go visit a site or thread where people support YOUR politics. This is a Ron Paul thread for and about Ron Paul - it has nothing to do with your random off-topic socialist tyrades.

So now one person who is on the other side of the political isle posting their opinions is called "trolling." How pathetic. I guess according to you all half of the country are trolls. Grow up seriously with the childish name calling. If you can't handle that someone else on here has different views and sees government differently than deal with it. I don't remember reading in the TOS I had to be any specific political party member to join this website and post back when I did. Oh and I am not around so much generally because I am a college student and do have studies and grades to keep up with. I'm on winter break now so I'm keeping myself entertained by visiting boards I generally don't get a chance to. I didn't know that was a crime now with the way majority of the people in this thread have been behaving towards me since I first had the nerve to post my opinions.

I asked how many times you were going to say that! That's twice.

You have been doing nothing but WRANGLING debates and posting your opinion (repeatedly) on OFF-TOPIC material! This was about Ron Paul's poll position and censorship, you were vehemently attacking Paul from the start and have exhausted the thread. We're making it so simple for you, please read the terms and conditions. Trolling isn't just a term we use to be funny, it means something.

And where did you tell that to people who were talking about other issues too with me where? Oh right you only told that to the person you disagree with! Go figure!
