This is more determined by my favorite guns. 

My favorite pistol is the one I carry which is the HS2000.  This comes in 9mm. 
For rifles I have a SIG556 which is a .223 caliber.  I also really like shooting the 8mm Mauser.

Perhaps if you are going to run for some kind of office here in New Hampshire it might behoove you to take some time and effort to clean up your online activity.  There are services that will do it for you apparently.

There was a class exploitation theory within classic liberalism before Marxism.  It is a part of libertarian thought partly because there is quite a bit of validity to the idea.  There are political classes that use the system to exploit everyone else within society. 

I do agree that a lot of how it is discussed by libertarians tends to be a bit on the side of hyperbole and try to make everything unseemly in society part of a plot by the ruling elites to subjugate the people.  You get some of the absurdity coming from Lew Rockwell that seems to suggest that the food pyramid is part of a plot to support big government. 

My general take on the whole thing is that while there is this class warfare it is a lot more complicated than most of the libertarian commentators make it out to be.

Usually whenever I see a claim like this or whenever Lew Rockwell starts talking about anything involving health, science, medicine or diet I will do a google search of the subject plus the word 'skeptic'.

I read an article a while ago that reported the results of a study conducted by some political science professor on civil disobedience.  More specifically about the media's portrayal of civil disobedience.  The results tended to suggest that civil disobedience was generally not a winning strategy.  Whenever the media reported on civil disobedience they generally focused on the actual acts of disobedience.  They would give scant attention to the message that inspired the civil disobedience if they addressed it at all.  A confrontation, especially a confrontation with the police, increased the likelihood that the event was reported on but also decreased the likelihood that the message of the protest was reported.  

It also seems apparent that the civil disobedience crowd fails to understand the psychology of participants and spectators to such events.  Civil disobedience is the wrong venue for persuasion.  Civil disobedience is confrontation.  The people who are involved in the confrontation begin preparing themselves psychologically for attack and defense.  They start entering into a combative state of mind.  They being to shut themselves off to discussion and instead begin to dig in their heels and defend their own position, even if they know their stance is shaky.  

I also tend to disagree that their 'nonviolent evolution' is nonviolent.  The strategy of civil disobedience is often to encourage violence.  Violence is not a single act but part of a process.  It does not start with the swinging of the fist.  There are many preparatory steps that occur before the actual physical action occurs.  If you watch two dogs start to face off you'll see them begin to take certain stances.  Their ears will flatten against their heads, they will begin to circle.  There will be snarling and teeth bearing.  So what does this 'nonviolent' civil disobedience involve?  The activist simply starts the process of violence.  They create a situation where they can goad another individual into committing a physical act.

« on: September 11, 2011, 10:26:05 AM »
Allen West is one of the most fascist thugs in Congress right now.  He is a scumbag.   This is a guy who was on trial for abusing a prisoner in Iraq.  Some of his soldiers beat the guy and he threatened to shoot him in the head.  Firing his pistol next to his head.  This guy should be rotting in Leavenworth right now for that.

As far as him being pro-liberty?  Hardly.  He's in favor of the ultra-militarist police state.

most people shy away from confrontation.  People do not like it and will tend to avoid those people who seek it out. 

When faced with confrontation people have a tendency to dig in their heals.  They will not want to give ground.  They will become more combative.  They are not very likely to listen to the other side.  It just makes it much harder to make any forward progress.  It just ensures that your opponent will fight even harder over every inch of ground.

I think the whole black market/agorist idea is idiotic. 

There is very little possibility of the black market actually collapsing the the state.  The state doesn't need to control all of the economy.  They just need to control vital sectors of the economy.  You have some countries where the government is stable and firmly in power where the black market is something like 60% of the total economy.  The state tolerated the black market because it provided a release value.  They knew they couldn't provide all the citizen's needs so they looked the other way as people got it from other sources. 

No one is going to take these agorists very seriously either.  They come off as a fly-by-night outfit by trying to sell the crap their kids would at summer camp. 

Also, no one is making money doing this shit.  The only market they have are other people in the liberty movement who are buying this shit more to support the cause than because they are offering a product people want.  How many of these agorists can't even pay their own bills.  They all have to have a legal defense fund when they get arrested for one of their asinine protests.
