global_revolution_2016 Repost from @travelingman2. COME ON PEOPLE, WE NEED REAL CHANGE NOW DON'T YOU UNDERSTAND!!!!!!!!!! We could have Rand Paul as the Republican Candidate, Bernie Sanders as the Democratic Candidate, Gary Johnson as the Libertarian Candidate, and Jesse Ventura as an Independent Candidate. As for running mates, I would say Justin Amash, Alan Grayson (not Elizabeth Warren), Jim Gray, and Howard Stern. #2016#election#president#vicepresident#congress#houseofrepresentatives#senate#vote#voting#berniesanders#randpaul#garyjohnson#jesseventura#libertarian#independent#democrats#republicans#wakeup#sheeple#standup#revolution#rebel#liberal#conservative 5d
  •   mirandalovespickles Oh, and Gary North isn't just some nutty fruitcake who sits in front of his mom's computer and bangs out his kooky ideas on her keyboard with one hand while shoving her cheetos down his throat with the other. He's a highly regarded economist in republican and libertarian (not that there's much of a difference anymore) circles. He's one of those guys who works behind the scenes. Just as he does with your guy Ron. 4d
  •   mirandalovespickles Did he say he wants the government out if the issue of marriage, or did he say that he considers it a state's rights issue? Because there is a difference. And it's been a few years so my memory may be a tad shaky, but looking at his voting record, when it came time to cast a vote on any issue regarding gay marriage or abortion, he rarely even showed up to vote. So, at best his progressive views are irrelevant since he never (or rarely) backed them up with votes, and at worst his avoidance signifies something a bit more sinister (like not wanting to go on record on those stances in order to continue to appeal to progressives). And with regards to his connection to Jesse Ventura, when you can show me that he has any political clout (sorry, I know you like him but he doesn't) and when you can show me where Ventura has vowed to try to impose a theocratic (or otherwise fascistic) government on this country, then I might be moved by the connection. I'm not. I am also doubtful of Ventura's claims that he is atheist, but that's another argument for another day. Any leader worth his or her salt knows that to appeal to people who might otherwise shut you down, you either avoid labels altogether, or you take the label of those whose ideas and worldview you are trying to influence. Kind of like how Ron Paul hides who he really is in order to appeal to progressives. 4d
  •   rainbow__child_ @mirandalovespickles I agree ran Paul says he supports freedom but when it comes down to it he doesn't at all even saying marriage shouldn't be up to the government means that gay people would probably never be legally aloud to get married with the same benefits as a heterosexual married couple. 4d
  •   rainbow__child_ Ron* 4d
  •   global_revolution_2016 @mirandalovespickles no I think he said that he wants the government entirely out. Yeah, it is almost certain that Jesse Ventura is an atheist. He was the only governor to vote against National Prayer Day, and this was before he admitted he was an atheist. He admitted this 3 1/2 years ago, because if he did that before that he may have not gotten elected. He says that just like George Carlin, he worships the sun. 3d
  •   mirandalovespickles Okay so perhaps I am wrong about Ventura. But I'm not wrong about Paul. 3d

msegarty Tour of congress was fantastic, if a little short. The dome is under restoration (first time in 100 years) and will be under scaffolding until just before the Jan 2017 presidential inauguration. The place is full of statues donated by states and territories, my fave being that of Dr Norman E Borlaug, the man who saved a billion lives #congress #senate #houseofrepresentatives #dome #capitol #hill #boehner #borlaug 1w
