YAY!

(Thank God.  I was terrified about this race).

See, before this thread I would never have suspected that you are a purer libertarian than Dallasfan.

I call BS.

My night will totally be ruined if Murkowski wins. I hate that woman more than anyone else running for Senate this year.

So your party's own ethics rules applies to other parties but not to your own.  That's nice.  When a member of your party breaks both the letter and the spirit of the rule, then it's "flexible."  When a member of right-wing party breaks those same ethics rules, then they have to be implemented immediately.

Whatevs.  You guys are insufferable.

The facts are clear.  1 day = 24 hours.  End of story.  If the law meant "day" as something other than a unit of time, then it would have said something different (i.e. "calendar day").  Otherwise when a unit of time is referred to in a law, it is generally assumed to refer to that unit of time, and not to some colloquialism.

Yeah... I don't see this lasting.

Uh, you don't? When has big government ever relinquished expanded power over the citizenry?

Ron Paul takes the correct libertarian position that open borders are incompatible with a welfare state.

(Which also brings to light the ridiculousness of defending the welfare state due to "morality" - the people considered "poor" in this country are for the most part filthy rich compared to the vast majority of Mexicans.  If transfer of wealth from rich to poor really is "moral," then we should be taking money from our wealthy "poor" and giving it to truly poor people in foreign countries).

Certainly a promising trend in the GOP.  Still, I'm inclined to take a "wait-and-see" approach before wildly celebrating.

7237  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Republicans and the death penalty on: October 31, 2010, 08:44:57 pm
I see why Sam Brownback opposes the death penalty- but Ron Paul? Is there something libertarian about being against the death penalty?

Libertarians aren't too keen on the possibility of innocents being murdered by the state.

I think the best thing to predict for NY is which ballot lines receive greater than 50,000 votes.

In what way?

You've said so before. Also half your endorsements, lol.

Roll Eyes

Where have I said so before?  I believe that the Republicans are generally fascist, evil, murderous, warmongering, socialist thugs who deserve to be thrown in prison rather than be elected to congress, and that the Democrats are generally even worse.  I have endorsed libertarian and paleoconservative (i.e. semi-decent) Republicans, and Republicans running in races with only a Democrat and a Republican.  Even so, they do not make up half my endorsements.
7242  Election Archive / 2010 Senatorial Election Polls / Re: PA: PPP: Toomey up 5% and over 50% on: October 31, 2010, 08:06:15 pm
Toomey had a more conservative voting record than DeMint in the house.  But he does have a very different tone and emphasizes very different issues than Santorum.

That took you 10 minutes to find.  Finding an irritating individual irritating or acting like a hack and then acting less like a hack to avoid embarrassment after the majority opinion has already been written does not make you not a hack.

Show me one example where you took a position not beneficial to your party.
7245  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: PLEASE SAY IT AIN'T SO. on: October 31, 2010, 07:45:37 pm
"The hour of our triumph."

"An hour's work"

"The hour of reckoning"

"Hours and hours"

What?

Those are figures of speech and not anything that would ever appear in a legal text.

Exactly my point.

If the point was that you don't have a clue what the hell you're talking about and you're sticking around just to be a thorn in everyone's side for no reason, then point made.

Well, my understanding of the definition of "day" was that it refers to a period of 24 hours, or 1440 minutes, or 86400 seconds, or 7.94243385x10^14 periods of the radiation corresponding to the transition between the two hyperfine levels of the ground state of the caesium 133 atom.

Your understanding of the word day seems to be that it refers to "whatever is most beneficial to the Jesus Christ Party."

Well, I don't think "hour" really means "hour."  I think you need to say "3600 seconds."
7249  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Are state's rights more important than individual rights? on: October 31, 2010, 07:31:44 pm
Of course not.  I'm only in favor of "states' rights" inasmuch as it's a good legal strategy to take away power from the feds.  Of course, those same battles would then need to be fought at the state level.

Also:

What's more important is that we follow the Constitution, because that is where rights are prescribed. If there is an issue that is not prescribed to the Federal government in the Constitution, than that issue is Constitutionally mandated to be handled at the state level. If that issue is so important that it transcends state lines, then a Constitutional amendment is needed to make the issue a Federal issue.

The Constitution was designed to limit the growing powers of the Federal Government. The Federal Government cannot unilaterally make a decision on issues. The Constitution is not a guideline, rather, it is the supreme law of the land that must be followed at all times.

But just below that, wormguy: "c. Also called civil day. a division of time equal to 24 hours but reckoned from one midnight to the next. Compare lunar day, sidereal day."



Active clause.
