I wanted to know what the "Liberty Party" was -- but I learned;
Liberty Movement (in Spanish: Movimiento Libertad), was a political party in Peru founded in 1987 by groups opposing the nationalization of the
banking sector in 1986.
Yeah, well, that's probably ANOTHER "astro turf" movement funded by Private Bankers -- while ironic and appropriate, I don't think it's the "Liberty
Party" the OP mentioned. This is just a spin-off of Ron Paul libertarianism, which pushes the same things as the Tea Party, which pushes basically the
idea that "Government should be so tiny it cannot be corrupted" -- which is idiotic because if Government is corrupt, you need to deal with the
corruption first, because whatever gets "shrunk" is stuff that was going to protect you. Case in point; I don't want to live in a country WITHOUT an
organization like the FDA -- however, our FDA is corrupt and backs really unsafe stuff as long as it comes with a lot of money for officials when they
get out and work for the industry they regulate.
So YES, I believe there are paid trolls -- but the problem is, a lot of rational people are going to find real, home grown thoughts to be ridiculous
when they come from the "Liberty for Corporations" party.
It's just like the Chamber of Commerce which is comprised mostly of outsourcing multinational organizations -- this country doesn't need someone else
protecting "Free Trade" and supply-side economics -- which is ALWAYS the end result of Libertarianism and by extension Republicans.
The Liberty Party is starting to run the Republican Party -- and it isn't getting any saner.
So kudos in calling out the trolls -- but why did you have to derail the discussion out of the Gate by pushing an extreme group that is in essence,
Corporate Trolling? Would any corporation, for instance, throw money at some pro Union special interest group? No. Liberty Party is the exact opposite
of what ACTUALLY provides liberty; financial security for the average worker.
Productivity has been going up for decades. Wages stagnant. The Dollar is watered down as everyone stomps up and down about the "deficit spending" and
so the cut $800 Billion from programs that go to CITIZENS, while the Fed prints up $16 Trillion and uses that for zero-interest loans to banks -- then
thousands of shills go out and tell us how "this costs us nothing -- these are guarantees." Until of course, the money isn't in the bank account and
some transaction depends on that, and we've got to backstop $16 Trillion -- and that's also a hidden tax on the dollar in your pocket, so you are even
poorer than you thought.
Now Government getting SMALLER doesn't really help that -- Government taking over the banks and ending the Fed while becoming the printer of MONEY
AGAIN would, however... it would solve a lot of things, like banks not lending to people who actually need money, but only people who already have it.
Their utility in our country is about as negative as Futures Contracts which only serve to bid up prices -- not stabilize them.
We don't need MORE or LESS government -- we need transparency and publicly financed elections - we need corporations to have no influence at all. The
Liberty Party like the Tea Bag group before it -- is backed by very large market manipulators.
The OP sounds like a corporate Troll even as he calls them out -- see the problem here? Honest people adopt opinions that Corporations have
propagandized and raised them on and don't even know it. And if I were a shill, I'd have more than $25 in the bank account right now. But nobody knows
anyone, so we just BELIEVE whomever echoes what we already hold true -- extremism gets reinforced, not reason.
