But yes.  For a country like Haiti, a wise ruler, aka a benevolent dictator, is probably the only way they will ever have a libertarian system.
OK, Haitians are dumb as stumps and need a wise ruler to lead them into liberty...

Has that ever happened anywhere, ever?

Doubt many in the media care about the word used in private meeting. Got to have controversy to get viewers.


No, the media don't care.  No doubt many of them have lamented having to go so some Sh--hole country for a story.

My understanding is that Dick Durbin was the only Democrat at the meeting.  Not that this proves that Durbin was the leaker.  The GOP is little better than the Dems these days.

No doubt Trump thought he was with a group of men and they could speak like men without anyone getting the vapors.  Evidently, they were at least one man less than they thought.

Their low-IQ's will prevent their ever voting in a system of freedom.


This is true of Americans. The average voter is too easily deceived and/or bought off for a pie-in-the-sky philosophy to work.

This is basically the problem with humanity everywhere.
  

This moral relativism of yours is exactly what lets government take this freedom, then that freedom, until we have lost them all.

Yes, our welfare system has encouraged low-IQ people to reproduce.  Someday we may have an avarage IQ that is as low as that of Haiti's.

I have to say though that some Hatian people are very intelligent and quite charming.  Especially one I met in the Army.  Yes.  Especially that one  . . .

When you said this-

"But yes.  For a country like Haiti, a wise ruler, aka a benevolent dictator, is probably the only way they will ever have a libertarian system."-

which is what I replied to, it didn't sound at all like a hypothetical, it sounded exactly like you were advocating a Haitian Dictator. They had them before...

Trump's comments are having a desirable effect in the rest of the world. Diminishing his country's reputation and credibility.

Poor people in poor areas have always had lots of children. My theory has always been that it is because so many of their children die. They want to have enough to have some hope that a few will live to take care of them in their old age.

Getting pregnant is a rational decision for many young women in our "progressive" ghettos, because they and the baby will then be supported. That says nothing about their IQs.

The people doing stupid things in the situation are the "progressives" who created the ghettos and started up the "Great Society". Unwed young mothers in ghettos are the fruit of the "Great Society".

Nobody else in the world can see that Haiti is a shithole?
