This weekend was a big one for that champion of liberty, Congressman Ron Paul. Not only did he raise $1 Million in his Veterans’ Day Money Bomb, but he also got the opportunity to “participate” in yet another GOP Debate on foreign policy, aired by CBS. However, Dr. Paul, clearly a frontrunner for the GOP nomination by any measure be it fund raising, straw polls, or standard poll, was given merely 89 seconds to speak in the hour that aired
I don’t hide my biases. It’s well known that I and several of the contributors here support Congressman Ron Paul, both politically and philosophically. When I watch the debates I try to be somewhat objective, at least on the surface. I’ll be the first to admit that Ron Paul isn’t the best debater, or the most well-spoken candidate up there. He’s not “sexy”, he doesn’t look “strong”, he doesn’t really have any cool catchphrases. But in tonight’s GOP Debate, Ron

Yes, that’s right, you can now follow the Lions of Liberty on Twitter. Unfortunately the handle was already taken (by a clothing company? Pft), but you can follow us at @LionsofLiberty_ .

Well the beginning of the week is a bit crazy for the Lions of Liberty, so things are slow….but have no fear there will be several exciting, inspirational and educational posts coming shortly. Until then, ABC/Yahoo recently did an interview with Ron Paul which I found to be interesting in that he was able to address some of the more broader ideas of libertarianism. He is also able to give a rebuttal to current Progressive icon Elizabeth Warren’s quote that
I don’t have much time today, but this one requires some back story so I’m going to briefly sum up American foreign policy of the last decade for you in one rambling, run on sentence: A bunch of Muslims called Al Qaeda led by a tall dude with kidney disease get mad at the USA for our freedom and fly planes into buildings so we send troops to Afghanistan to get him but let most of them escape to Pakistan
Hermain Cain has undoubtedly been the most entertaining candidate in the 2012 GOP Primary Race. From his weird and creepy campaign ads to his inspiring Ode To Pizza, his rise as GOP “Frontrunner” hasn’t ceased to amaze for one second. But as the never-ending scramble by the GOP Establishment and the Mainstream Media to find a suitable Non-Ron Paul candidate to take on Mitt Romney continues, I predict that in the coming weeks we will see a fall from grace
Recently MSNBC personality Ed Schultz had a segment called “Psycho Talk” where he bashed Dr. Ron Paul, labeling him “psycho” at the mere suggestion of eliminating certain unconstitutional government departments such as the Department of Agriculture and Department of Education. I’ve noticed that people tend to resort to “attack” words like “crazy” and “psycho” when they are not confident in making an intellectual argument on their own. Therefore, they start off with that smear word right away, so before anyone
