    Why do you keep ignoring that fact that a large surrounding population of immigrants can help widen the gap?
    You can't just waltz into Hong Kong, gain instant wealth and highly relative income.

    This is why discussing anything with you is retarded.
    I should know better.

    You don't understand statistics, demographics and other relevant economic factors enough to digest information, in a more objective way.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Is Hong Kong's New Chief a Communist?



    "Hong Kong Chief Executive-elect Leung Chun-ying waves after being announced as the winner of an election among Beijing-friendly elite in the Chinese special administrative region on Sunday."

    "The furtive ceremony marked Leung’s first step into the hidden world of Hong Kong’s underground Communist Party, an organization that, decades later, still functions entirely out of view but casts a long shadow over the decision on who will lead this Special Administrative Region of China for the next five years.

    There are some who are so anti-libertarian that they will never give the notion an objective chance, but they will post here anyway. *sigh*. Personally, while I used to be libertarian, I no longer consider myself to be so, yet I still hold many of the ideals. Where they lose me is the utter lack of understanding of human nature, but be that as it may, there's a great deal of the philosophy that I still like. Anyway...

    If libertarian philosophy and the Libertarian Party is to move forward and actually effect change, what has to happen? I'm speaking primarily for this year and in this year's November elections.

    1. Develop a base? I.e.: local, state, Congress, etc. offices first?
    2. Elect a President without a base?
    3. Be included in Presidential debates?
    4. Carry 10%+ of the popular vote in the Presidential election?
    5. Other?

    To me, the Libertarian Party's biggest roadblock is itself. It doesn't organize locally. It doesn't build from the ground up. It would have to become what it loathes... a political organization that plays the game... in order to expand beyond the fringes. This is really the catch-22, isn't it? Compromise to gain access and change, or remain loyal to ideals and remain irrelevant.

    You are wrong.The biggest road black to the Libertarian party heck the road block for any party is the fact the media deliberately ignores 3rd parties. Heck the media even ignores democrats and republicans they do not want want propped up. What makes a candidate viable is because the media says so. Obama for example was a nobody before the media decided to prop him up. If you asked most Americans who voted in the last presidential election who is chuck Baldwin or Bob Barr is they most likely wouldn't know. The second biggest roadblock is the fact democrats and republicans conspire together to weasel out 3rd parties.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Never will happen. Tea Party / Libertarians will never be popular. Why? Because the majority of Americans WILL need help at some point of time. In the long run we will need to tax the needless more. At least in THIS global economic situation where State unions like teachers and civil servants are paid FAR to much and the corporate elite players are paid FAR too much. One MAJOR positive thing we as Americans can do is eliminate ALL benefits to illegals and newly made US citizens (2 years of citizenship).
