Amen and amen!! I am, also, a strong an uncompromising advocate of Covenanted Communities, Friend RW. Some "Calvinists" try to "apologize" for Calvin's Republic of Geneva -- but not me. Frankly, I see almost nothing for which to "apologize". I will defend Calvin's Geneva to the wall, on every point, without reservation.
Because Calvin's Geneva was a Covenanted Community, just like Mosaic Israel. 20,000 Free Citizens unanimously acclaimed the Charter and Constitution of the Church and Government of Calvin's Geneva. I do not claim that every ordinance they instituted was "perfect", but I do know that it was unanimously covenanted, for better or for worse.
"Consent of the Governed means each and every one" -- old Libertarian axiom, and the teaching of Deuteronomy 27: 14-26. "ALL the men of Israel shall say...".
But let's be realistic here. John Calvin, the greatest Vessel of the Holy Spirit since the Apostles, was able AT BEST to secure the Unanimous Covenant of a mere 20,000 Christian Citizens.
Are you a greater man than John Calvin? Because I am NOT.
If we would follow in his foot-steps, if we would build Covenanted Communities on the Genevan Model, I am convinced that we must devolve the Powers of Government far lower than even "State Sovereignty". We are talking about County level Governance at this point.
Centralized Government is the ENEMY. If you truly desire Covenanted Communities, Federal Government must be opposed at nearly every level, and even State Government should be devolved to the Counties.
We are not Nationalists; we are not even Statists. We are home-schoolers and church-covenanters. We need Government to be as Limited and as Local as reasonably possible if we truly want to build a thousand little Genevas.
Another whining crybaby.
Like I told one of your fellow crybaby pals, get your own political forum. Then you can revoke posting privileges or ban anyone you want. Until then, you'll have to settle for moaning and groaning about what you don't like here on Jim Robinson's forum. Conservative politics is a tough business and isn't for weak stomachs like yours.
BTW, your disregard for freedom of speech and the Bill of Rights is obvious and quite revolting.
Gee, howzabout that -- We have one. The Republican LIBERTY Caucus Forum is now an official Forum of the FreeRepublic website. FreeRepublic.Com now recognizes the election of Liberty Constitutionalist Republicans as one of its official political goals.
If you don't like it -- suffer.
We contribute a lot more money to this Website than you, RM, and we shall continue to do so.
Either you are on the Train, or you are on the Tracks in front of us... fine by us, either way.
You've got that right. Neutral my arse. The RLC being noncommittal on this issue is very troubling. But not quite as troubling as the Libertarian Party agenda, which basically supports pro-choice abortion rights. That means the LP supports abortion on demand. What's so great about that? Both of these libertarian positions, have nothing in common with the pro-life position of respecting all human life. Supporting the killing of innocent and helpless human children, is in itself, an inhuman act and should be condemned at every opportunity.
I have a libertarian streak, I guess, but it ends at defense. Generally, I'm in favor of kicking the crap out enemies and asking about it later. I'm in favor of being in position to kick the crap out of any potential antagonist long before hostilities begin. Deterrence saves lives.
Not half as "troubling" as the Republican National Committee.
The Republican Liberty Caucus devotes itself to Capitalism, Gun Rights, and State Sovereignty. Since they do no take a position on Abortion, Pro-Lifers know that they must either spend their money elsewhere, or only devote their money to expressly pro-life Republican Libertarians, like my personal friend Murray Sabrin (National Vice-Chair of the Republican Liberty Caucus).
The RLC is there for Capitalism, Gun Rights, and State Sovereignty -- that's what they do, and they are up-front about it.
By contrast, the Republican National Committee takes "conservative" money, and then spends millions of dollars a year on Pro-Abortion candidates.
I earned my Pro-Life scars with the front line shock-troops of Operation Rescue, unlike a do-nothing blowhard like yourself, "Reagan Man". And as someone who actually stood on the front lines, I have this to say -- at least the Republican Liberty Caucus is HONEST. To them, Abortion is a State Issue, as Murder Laws constitutionally should be.
At least the RLC does not spit in my Pro-Life face like the hypocritical Republican National Party.
You know something I don't know? Hey, give us all the facts and all the links while you're at it. Otherwise you're just lying through your teeth.
Jim Robinson's desire to support a libertarian forum on his website, is by his choice. And your desire to engage in debate on this libertarian forum, is by your choice. If I choose to engage on this the RLC forum, I will, by my choice.
What's left of FR, belongs to conservatives, Republicans and independents.
Just remember, the Libertarian philosophy is DOA! And Libertarian politics is a total joke.
Libertarian presidential candidate harry browne received a whopping 390K votes in the last general election. Another joke! Live with it! The RLC forum will change nothing for the future of Libertarian politics.
Simply possessing Nuclear Weapons buys a whole lot of Deterrence.
Assume the following:
Given these conditions, do you see any country attacking us?
Honestly? Any at all?
Balderdash. "What's left" of FR is owned by Jim Robinson, the creator of the Republican Liberty Caucus Forum.
I couldn't care less about the Libertarian Party. I have cast more Republican votes than Libertarian votes in my life, and I expect I will continue to do so.
Why? Because I vote Republican whenever the Republican candidate is basically libertarian, and opposed to YOU, "Reagan Man".
And that is the official direction of this Forum, "Reagan Man". To elect Liberty Constitutionalist Republicans, who are opposed to YOU. You personally, "Reagan Man".
The Enemy is YOU.
You ain't the "rest of the Forum", RM. The enemy is YOU.
You're on the Train, or you're on the Tracks. Fine by me either way.
Don't try and fool me. You've got scars on your arse, from sitting on your butt, your whole life and whining about everything and everyone that's done you wrong. You're nothing but another BIG crybaby.
First off, you don't know anything about me and second, you're a big mouth nobody, who doesn't have an ounce of commonsense or intelligence in his entire body. I've not even responded to you today. Yet you've taken it upon yourself to personally attack with flat out lies and fabricated horses**t. Fair is fair, bucko. You're in my crosshairs from now on, boy.
Shove that crap right up your wazoo. Before you engage this conservative, get informed and get your facts straight. Otherwise you'll always look like the blithering idiot you really are.
You're bloviating, and emarassing yourself.
I can name the time, the place, and the Campaign Slogan of my Operation Rescue campaigns.
You, on the other hand, ain't nothing but a blow-hard liar.
You can't bluff with a 7-high, RM. You don't fool nobody.
Sit down and let the adults talk, child. When we want your opinion, we'll give it to you.
The libertarian cat's out of the proverbial bag. You're another fringe wacko extremist --- misfit, malcontent, militant... take your choice --- bent on inflicting as much trouble for conservatives and Republicans as you possibly can. You're fooling no one. You are giving aid and comfort to the enemy of conservatism, that being the twin evils of liberalism and socialism.
You are the true enemy of conservatism.
You have nothing in common with the Republican Party, but you're convinced this new RLC forum will lead the way. I've got news for you, it won't.
If it wasn't for me, this thread would contain less then 50 replies. It may be JimRob's thread, but I gave it life.
I'll sit back and see what other incoherent and convoluted rants you can think of. Have fun!
Btw, the official direction of this forum, will not be determined by you.
My opinion is my own and your rhetoric is falling on deaf ears, boy. I see you haven't grown up yet. Well ten year olds are allowed on the forum, with their parents permission, in writing.
So bring it on! Let's see what you have, Mister Little Libertarian.
The official direction of FreeRepublic.Com will be determined by Jim Robinson, the owner of Free Republic and the deliberate creator of the Free Republic Liberty Caucus Forum.
This is his website, and he determines the official direction -- Ron Paul, Murray Sabrin, Republican Liberty Caucus... full steam ahead. You're either on the Train, or you're on the Tracks.
Ron Paul = a Libertarian, forced to run as a Republican. As a Libertarian he can't get elected. Hahahahahahaha
Murry Sabrin = Another Libertarian loser. This time from New Jersey. Hahahahahahaha
Republican Liberty Caucus = Dead On Arrival. Hahahahahahaha
The Train = Lionel, I suspect! Hahahahahahaha
But all the same, Republican Liberty Caucus = one of the official objectives of www.FreeRepublic.Com.
You can smile all you want. Like I said, it will make no diffrence and it will have no impact either. Remember the Libertarian philosophy is DOA! And Free Republic isn't a major force in American politics either. You really need to wake up and get with the program. FR is a great place for conservatives to come and get news and debate fringe extremists like you. This new forum will make it easy to find you Libertarian's, quickly.
And what is all the better, it will make it easy for libertarian-minded Republicans (quite numerous on FR) to stop cutting their political checks to Establishment Republicans like yourself at the RNC, and only direct their contributions to the Liberty Constitutionalist Republicans supported by this website!!
No more blanket checks to the Republican National Committee; it's all about Liberty Republicans now, son. Anything that takes the Republicam Party away from anti-constitutionalists like YOU, and brings it towards pro-constitutionalists like US.. is a good thing.
Every little bit helps.
We can only gain, you can only lose. Which is all to the good!!
I've got more news for you. Get this through your thick skull. There's no such thing as a libertarian-minded Republican. You're either a Republican, or a Libertarian. If you're a Republican, you have a political party and a platform that offers assistence, support and every opportunity for you to win an election. If you're a Libertarian, you have a weak political party and no real chance of winning any election. Just ask harry browne. The RLC and this new forum will change nothing.
You're living in a delusional dream world.
The sooner you understand that the Libertarian philosophy isn't a major player or political force in American politics, the better off you'll be. But first you'll have to return from the outer limits of the twilight zone, were all good Libertarian's dwell. You're irrational exuberance will fade with the passing of time. Enjoy yourself, while it lasts. Which won't be too long.
