​I don't see why it would be necessary to discuss it with him, Mr. Khan
made it abundantly clear in his speech at the Democratic​ convention that
nominated Hillary Clinton what his views were. And in response to Mr.
Khan's speech Trump produced this self contradictory gem:

*"Mr. Khan who has never met me, has no right to stand in front of millions
of people and claim I have never read the Constitution, (which is false)
and say many other inaccurate things."*

If Donald Trump had actually read the Constitution he'd know that Mr. Khan
DOES have a right to say whatever he wants in front of as many people that
want to listen to him. And yet for reasons that absolutely baffle me
libertarians seem to have a certain fondness for this fascist. It's weird.
And yes I know many libertarians intend to vote for Gary Johnson, but it
takes 270 electoral votes to become president and I will give 3 to 1 odds
that Johnson will not get one single electoral vote. Johnson will get zero
votes, zip nada zilch goose egg.

​I've seen this before, after a long post on subject X it ENDS with
something like, "we should never talk about subject X again", which really
means I and only I should have the last word on subject X.  It would be far
more convincing if the FIRST and only sentence in the post was "
 Let's avoid subject
 on this list
​", I'd still disagree but at least it wouldn't be self contradictory.​
