    you seem to do these things from time to time.....jump into different areas which are not being discussed, but i have become accustomed to it but it still makes me laugh when i see it.
    Haymarket was looking at your perspective, just as you would if you were debating with a commie.

    You don't like it? TOUGH! I could not care less. The reality is that almost every time we have these discussions about secession it seems the people who are the loudest supporters are also the ones who are right libertarians and share tea party sentiments.

    And the mention of them is 100% appropriate and perfectly on topic. You don't like that? Again - TOUGH!

    Confusing him with rational thought and facts could be really hazardous for his mental health.

    THE
    second point to be examined is, whether the [constitutional ]convention were authorized to frame and propose this mixed Constitution.

    Stating that the majority of secessionists are right libertarians and share tea party sentiments is a attack?

    False on both counts. I presented an argument. Many times in fact. And the perspective on secession from right libertarians here and the tea party sympathizers is entirely appropriate to be discussed since they are the bulwark for defending secession.

    But why oh why EB are you a proud right libertarian in declared lean but yet shy away from the real implications of that lean when it is discussed here in the context of that faux ideologies support for secession? What are you ashamed of?

    Any truth or reality that makes them look bad is called an attack out of a knee jerk response mechanism to protect their supposed good name from being dirtied or sullied with the hard cold light of truth.
