    Did YOU watch Reagan's first presidential debate

    Yes. Were you even old enough to see it and remember it?

    Yes.

    You have less than NO idea how the LIVs and undecideds saw this; you're just guessing.

    No, I'm not guessing, I'm going by the undecideds that I've seen commenting on TV, as well as one LIV in my own household who watched and noted that Hillary was smooth, slick— and phony. He also said that Trump seemed authentic a like a real person. He now says he's leaning Trump.

    Name-calling? Oh, you mean "hand-wringer"? You were (and are) being a hand-wringer, IMHO...

    Trump was in TROUBLE most of the night;

    The independent voters who they gauged in real time during the debate seemed to strongly disagree with you.

    They are the ones who needed convincing, and they are the ones who saw a slick, polished politician versus a real human being.

    So the fact that Trump didn't seem to bring you much satisfaction or live up to your pie-in-the-sky criteria isn't particularly relevant to the undecideds and independents, who seemed to be reacting very positively to Trump at several key junctures.

    For instance, when Hillary was playing the phony race card, she simply wasn't scoring points. Indeed, she was losing them.

    Most undecided voters are sick and tired of slick politicians who tell everyone what they want to hear, and that was reflected int their reaction to Donald Trump.

    So, quite frankly, you missed something if you think he did poorly. People are sick of "style", they want straight talk and substance.

    You're just being a hysterical hand-wringer tonight, and the reactions from the voters that matter (undecideds & independents) bear that out.

    Wake up from your dream world, will you?

    You're the one in a dream world (and a bigoted one at that) if you think that anything approaching what you're suggesting will ever happen in America, or even could happen in America.

    It's flat out ignorance and sheer fantasy. Period. End of story.

    The fact is that huge numbers of people, blacks, white, latinos, Protestants, Catholics, atheists, even Muslims, are peacefully coexisting all over this country.

    In a nation of over 300 million souls, you choose to build your prejudices around the rare exceptions to that rule.

    I said separate, each to live as they see fit.

    You've got a small problem to overcome: the fact that this is a Free country.

    You appear to want something else. You appear to want to forcibly divide people into racial groups.

    Will. Not. Happen.

    America will never embrace the repudiated authoritarian separatist "vision" you cling to.

    So my suggestion would be to concentrate on functioning within the real America, dealing with real Liberty, and coexisting with all peaceable Americans, as opposed to embracing a naive and inherently flawed idea which also suffers from the problem of being antithetical to the notion that "all Men are created equal" and, in general, everything America should stand for.

    You're entitled to believe whatever you want, but neither you nor any mob will ever impose such absurdity on the rest of the People. Not in a Free America.

    The toxicology report on the dead man will probably have a lot to do with whether this officer is convicted or not.

    One thing for sure is, once you've been tasered, it's obviously possible that you could make involuntary movements with your arms or hands that could result in being shot, were those movements made under normal circumstances.

    Right now, I'm leaning toward the theory that her finger was on the trigger and thus she accidentally shot the man virtually at the same moment that he was tasered. If she wasn't in fear of her life, she's in big trouble.

    It would certainly be a shame if the tasering, and any spastic movements it produced, were then interpreted as justification for the officer to shoot the subject...

    Doesn't the MOE actually mean that the figures can swing +- 3.5% in either direction?

    Thus, a 4 point lead is not outside the margin of error, because Trump could actually be up to 3.5 points lower, and Hillary could be up to 3.5 points higher.

    That's the way I've always understood the MOE to function on such polls.

    sargon to ifinnegan
    He was really good. He had Tommy John and looked to have fully recovered.

    Only 24 years old.

    Jose Fernandez was also someone who had escaped to Florida from Cuba. He made it on his 4th attempt at the age of 15. On a previous attempt, had had dove into the water to help prevent a woman from drowning. The woman was his mother.

    His reward was to be cast into a Cuban prison for awhile.

    The Cuban community in South Florida knows the difference between Freedom and the illusion thereof.

    Most of those who have made it across the Florida Straits, consigning themselves to the mercy of the sun and the sea on flimsy, makeshift boats and rafts, can tell you of many friends and relatives who didn't make it.

    I've heard that the chances leaving Cuba and making it to dry land in the US (Florida) are about 50/50. Can you imagine risking your life on what amounts to a coin toss? How bad do things have to be before you're willing to try that?

    Fools like Noam Chomsky and his Leftist ilk (who idolize the Castro Regime and its murderous "revolution") will never understand what it's like for the common people of Cuba.

    Let me tell you, people don't risk their life on a 50/50 coin toss if the place they're living in is worth a damn.

    I'll never forgive the ignorant pigs who speak so glowingly of Castro. For every rosy comment they make about Cuba from their comfortable American locales, there are a hundred horror stories of oppression, imprisonment, and murder from refugees who know the reality of Tyranny in Castro's Cuba.

    I've personally heard dozens of anecdotes from many of them; tales of woe which leave no doubt as to the vicious evil that Castro's revolution still represents.

    Like I said, about half the people who try to cross to Freedom don't make it. Their willingness to still make repeated attempts should tell any thinking person everything they need to know about the government of Cuba.

    I spit on Castro and all of his blind apologists.

    It seems that he was an early backer of the program ‘Girls Gone Wild’, that showed mostly naked girls doing the most embarrassing stuff on TV.

    "Girls Gone Wild" is the greatest production ever conceived by the mind of man.

    The original concept, if I'm not mistaken, was to show up New Orleans during Mardi Gras festivities, supplied with lots and lots of Mardi Gras beads, turn on the video cam, and then offer the beads to attractive, inebriated young women in exchange for exposing their breasts.

    The raw energy and spontaneous behavior was really something to behold.

    The doctors of the mid 1960's when I was born had really messed up my Mom's head. Thus, I was not breast fed, but instead given "formula".

    I found the whole "Girls Gone Wild" production to be profoundly entertaining, and great therapy in helping me overcome the trauma I had experienced during my earliest years.

    It's so easy for Trump to win most of these debates that the Media tries to be so phony about.

    For instance, all he really would need t do is to note that many non-blacks are also killed by police each year, and that there should be accountability throughout all of the nations law enforcement groups.

    That's all that any reasonable citizen wants, black, white, or other.

    Personally, I agree that there has historically been very little accountability with police with respect to shootings, brutality, perjury, etc., and a lack of accountability invariably leads to abuse, whether it be at federal, state, or local level.

    It's perfectly feasible to be against police abuse while at the same time supporting legitimate law enforcement procedures.

    So, IMHO, there's plenty of common ground upon which overwhelming majorities of Americans can meet and work.

    Donald Trump will be a unifier!

    If Donald Trump is as smart as I think he is, he'll pwn Hillary on virtually every issue that's important to the American People. He's on the right side of the vast majority of them.

    What I don't understand is why Donald Trump is allowing himself to be outspent by Hillary so much, with respect to ad buys. While massive ad buys might not be effective for Hillary, I think they would be very helpful for Trump.

    You can't win a Presidential race on the cheap, and I think this lack of ad spending on Trump's part is keeping things much more precarious than they would otherwise be.

    Methinks Trump is being too stubborn on this issue, and it puts the entire campaign at risk of coming up short.

    I want to see Trump matching Hillary dollar for dollar on ad buys. Enough of this half-assed spending that makes it look like he's not covering all of his bases. Trump needs to engage Hillary fully on every front in the all-out war.

    As expected, your response fails to even address the specific pro-slavery wording deliberately incorporated into the Confederate constitution, BEFORE the first shots were even fired. Do you think that Northern abolitionists didn't read those words? Do you think that Slavery wasn't on the mind of many Northerners as they sent their sons off to War?

    There simply no way that so many Northern young mean were sent to their deaths, over a 5 year War, without the Abolition of Slavery as an underpinning principle, whether openly stated or not.

    On January 1, 1863, Lincoln issued his Emancipation Proclamation, less than 2 years after the outbreak of hostilities.

    Whether written or not, and whether official or not, the ending of the scourge of Slavery was on the minds of countless thousands of Union soldiers and families. All you have to to is read their letters. Pay a little less attention to the leaders with their convenient propaganda, and a little more to the People, or you're simply not seeing the whole picture.

    That ending Slavery was a critical goal of the War practically goes without saying. It was obvious.

    As for perpetuating Slavery and enshrining it in formal Law, there's simply no other explanation for the CHANGES that the Confederacy introduced to their constitution, their founding document.

    Where the U.S. Constitution couldn't even directly speak of Slavery, the Confederate constitution made it clear.

    Citing the fact that Slavery was "permitted" under the original Constitution means nothing. It was always anathema to Liberty, hypocritical, and a glaring contradiction to even the Declaration of Independence.

    By the time the Civil War came around, most Americans believed it to be the Great Wrong, including plenty of Southerners who couldn't afford to own slaves, or didn't want to, and who were seduced into sacrificing their lives by the "State's Rights" principle.

    It was the wrong underlying "principle" for the South to hang its hat on, and it provided the moral underpinnings for the North to ultimately persevere and win using the brutal tactics and strategies which were empoloyed.

    The North ultimately saw it as a Righteous Cause, and that is what gave them the "Moral Authority" and the Will to crush the Confederacy.

    I don't think it takes an incredible amount of book-reading or analysis to understand the Civil Was about Slavery, and to accept that History has passed its judgement.

    Denying or minimizing the central role that Slavery played in the Northern will to fight the War, and in the South's resistance to necessary change, is simply a reductionist interpretation.

    I mean, almost all Wars are about greed, of course. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize that. But their justification is always found in something else, and in the case of the American Civil War, that "justification" towers, morally, above all other causes.

    One need only go back to Jefferson's original draft of the Declaration to see that it contained a stinging indictment of Slavery and the Slave Trade. Jefferson's diatribe was deleted in order to preserve unity at the time. In other words, to appease the Southern colonies who would not have signed it otherwise.

    Slavery remains America's Original Sin, and the Civil War was simply the settling of that Debt.

    A cowardly Congress was never brave enough to settle the issue, and the result was the loss of over a million lives during the Lincoln administration.

    Hey, in the interest of fostering a better understanding of Mr. Yiannopoulus and the topic in general, there's an excellent question from the Q&A portion, asked by one of the event's attendees, regarding Milo's views on his own sexuality, starting right around the 1:44:58 mark:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-7-dAmdy-JE

    Milo's thoughtful and sincere answer might surprise many here, and is well worth watching. Suffice it to say that Milo repudiates the Left's standard "gays are born this way" dogma.

    Milo basically says if he could take a pill and be straight, he would, and his comments as a whole are very interesting.

    I highly recommend watching the clip, for any FR members who have reservations about Milo, or who are just curious about this man's honest thoughts on his own "gayness".

    Excellent. A definitive presentation.

    The Hillary campaign, with the full collusion of the Media, is going to great lengths to manufacture an image that she is popular, when the reality is otherwise.

    This is just more bad optics for her. Most people use the internet nowadays, and are savvy enough to review information like this for themselves.

    Hillary is really in a bad spot.

    In the video I've watched, Hillary doesn't appear on any of the cell phone cameras in the "crowd", as she supposedly walks past.

    It's just totally bizarre and doesn't make sense.

    If the videos that are being shown are "unaltered" by anyone (except the Hillary campaign), then there's something totally phony going on.

    I guess we now know what G. H. W. Bush thinks about the Globalist Establishment.

    To lose such a Revolutionary voice as Bush-41 in the fight against global elitism, how will our movement survive?

    Oh, wait: Bush-41 epitomizes the cancer of globalism!

    The [Civil War] was about money.

    That's just a pathetic bit of historical revisionism.

    If the South wasn't making money that the New York Empire builders wanted, nobody would have given a sh*t what the South did.

    Nonsense. Abolitionism as a moral concept predated the American Revolution, and was seen as a glaring contradiction from the very beginning. By the time the Civil War arrived, Abolitionism had grown into a formidable national movement.

    The Civil War was about Slavery. The Southern States saw the writing on wall, and the inevitable reality that Slavery would, someday soon, be outlawed by the United States federal government, via Constitutional means.

    You can post your graphics all you want, but the reason hundreds of thousands of middle class Northern parents were willing to send their sons off to die in a Civil War wasn't to protect the economic interests of greedy uber-rich Northerners. Without the righteous cause of ending Slavery, the willpower and impetus simply wouldn't have existed for the North to fight the Civil War.

    The South seceded so that they could keep more of the profits their slaves were earning in Europe, and the New York Power barons sicced the FedGov on em to get back those profits they lost.

    The South seceded to perpetuate Slavery, and they did precisely that when they authored the Confederate constitution. Were the economic considerations you cite a factor in the causes of the Civil War? Of course. Were they the central issue? Of course not.

    The Confederate constitution, with its explicit embrace of Negro Slavery, was adopted on March 11, 1861, a full month before the bombardment of Fort Sumter which commenced armed hostilities. In both tone and legal content, it went far beyond the U.S. Constitution in its expansive embrace of Slavery. Thus, Slavery wasn't some afterthought incorporated when framing the Confederacy: it was the bedrock principle upon which the new nation was founded.

    If, as you say, the Civil War was "about money", then why did the framers of the Confederacy find it so necessary to expand on Slavery so much in its founding document?

    Indeed, almost the only differences between the U.S. Constitution and the Confederate one revolve around the institution of Slavery.

    If the Civil War wasn't about Slavery, then I guess the Confederacy shouldn't have designed their constitution around the concept before the war even started.

    Your thesis is false.

    They should have slept out in the street so that they could reach those God-rejecting fags.

    I doubt very much if Jesus Christ would ever use the pejorative term "fag" to refer to a homosexual.

    Therein lies the distinction between His example and your hate.
