"At least I research more than I can say about you." - CMReeder

Now if you could only comprehend what it is you "research".

"Phil you are a liar." "Gavin you did confirm that Phil just writes to provoke." - CMReeder

"So Chuck, perhaps you can back up that statement with an example of where I lied, and proof it was a lie, or is this just another of your silly one line troll posts." Phil

"Well then certainly there must be a post by me that you could use to validate that." - Gavin

As the crickets chirp, I guess we see who is really the liar.

What makes you think that I don't know that Phil is stating philosophies from Mies and Hayek. Who by the way have their critics. Unfettered markets lead to an undermined social order which in turn can lead to an emergence of a dictatorship.

Libertarians do not like their ideals criticized just like anyone else.

Thanks Gavin for confirming that Phil only writes to provoke the left. - CMReeder

There is that reading comprehension thing again, it wasn't me, but then again we always knew you don't know what the heck you are talking about. This just reaffirms it.

So it is correct to say that the right does not try to change what they see as wrong in the world.

You should do more research Gavin the Great Depression affect the world not just the US. THe world set terms for Germany after WWI. Combine that with economic depression felt worldwide and someone like Hitler rose very easily in Germany.

Yeah, the Weimar Republic had nothing to do with it either, I suppose? The combination of the poorly formed Weimar government, the restrictions imposed from The Great War and the effects of the Depression of 1920 made Hitler possible. Hitler started his rise in the 1920's, BEFORE what we here know as 'The Great Depression'.

The reason we had a Great Depression was the conservative/libertarian belief in the markets. Which caused death and poverty and the rise of one of the worst tyrants in history, Hitler.

This is the laugh of the day! The Great Depression is only called that in the USA. Elsewhere, it's known as the Depression of 1930. It was bad, but nowhere else did it last TWELVE YEARS! Why? Because the US government turned to government controls, increased government spending and micromanagement. The better way would have been to approach it like the Depression of 1920. Federal government spending was cut in half, tax rates were reduced to increase revenues and to spur on industry. Because it was correctly handled, most of us never heard of the Depression of 1920, which was statistically worse than what we alone in the world refer to as "The Great Depression".

Gee Wayne you have no room to call another extremist. You don't like any liberals.

You don't know me, you don't know my family. I have liberal family members, and I love them the same as anybody else in the family, or don't they count? I also have FRIENDS who are liberals, but according to your 'wisdom', I don't love my friends, either. You must be incredibly lonely!

So the NRA is central planning. The one were industry and labor and government came together to form fair labor wages, develope codes of conduct for industries, set fair prices and end the destructive policies of the markets and industries. Not the government taking complete control.

The court ruled that the NRA was in violation of the separation of powers as stated in the Constitution, not that it was central planning.
