I'd like to hear why you think its a good idea for the federal reserve to have godlike power over U.S currency and immunity from government oversight.

There was nothing in my statement that implied that I agreed or disagreed with you. I simply said that I noticed you respond a lot using videos, but I think paraphrasing would be preferable in serious conversations. It's easy to link a video and say "That guy explains it well," but I'm frankly suspicious if people just borrow the words of a supposed authority instead of explaining it themselves. Paraphrasing shows that the individual understands the reasoning behind the opinion and isn't just copying someone else, who perhaps sounds confident, but might be wrong.

Whoopse I mistook you for Venom. I use videos for convenience, anyway I get your point.

I am not really that informed but I know that we have gone by the federal reserve for so long our entire economy is built around it and it brings our trillion dollar figures in business. If we go back to basing our currency on how much gold is in a safe somewhere we will probably take a huge hit. I am not sure if it would be better overall, take a hit now and be more balanced later, but taking that hit will turn a lot of people off.

Chris Christie and Carly Fiorina have dropped out.

I didn't follow Christie much but I loved the way he handled Rubio with the whole 25sec memorized speech thing.

 

Still loving all the different videos like You Can't Stump the Trump and anything with Jeb Bush look really mad or trying to attack Trump. I am supprised he has stayed in this long but he has put the most money into a campaign this season, so he has a lot riding on it.

Jeb Bush has dropped out.  I'll post the results once the counting has stopped even though the winners are official. 

And no one cared... (not insulting you, insulting the Rep party!) I mean he was overshadowed greatly by a guy  thats never held a political office, ever. The Republican race is a joke.

So, we're down to a racist reality show host/businessman, a brain surgeon who sounds like he's brain dead, a repetitive Senator from Florida, a radical religious Canadian Texan, and an Ohioan governor who sounds the most sane out of all the Republicans.  You're right, the GOP race is a joke.

South Carolina Republican Primary:

Trump (50) - 32.5%

Rubio (0) - 22.5%

Cruz (0) - 22.3%

Nevada Democratic Caucus:

Clinton (19) - 52.7%

Sanders (15) - 47.2%

Looks like we are set to see Bill Clinton become the first lady/man as karma for the whole blowjob scandal in the 90's

my brother sent me these videos when he found out. There are some other pretty good ones for the other candidates. He also bought Ben Carson's book and said he stopped reading it because it was really weird.

This GOP race is getting more interesting because it showcases the immense diversity that lurks within America.

Donald Trump has 5 votes? Okay now i know the community here has bad opinions. 

Coming from a socialist like yourself, yes.  Do I think Donald Trump is a true conservative?  No, because I feel he is out for himself.  He has track record of being a very strong liberal.

The word liberal is thrown around a little to much. Hes not a liberal hes a moderate. He has some good view's compared to most republicans and so bad ones still in alot of area's.
