What is being bandied about as a “hijacking” of a Ron Paul Q & A session in Keene, New Hampshire on Monday appears to be something slightly different. There were Occupy Wall Street supporters at the event that, after the last question was called, started their “Mic Check” routine where one guy (the guy in red in the video below) shouts something and the rest of them repeat it so that everyone can hear. However, this didn’t seem like quite
Well, it looks like it’s finally safe to consider being a vegetarian, because Congress just made Pizza a vegetable!!! Woohoo!!! As with almost all of the inane things Congress does, this was quietly snuck into a “spending” bill, reversing earlier standards set by the Department of Agriculture at the behest of the Crappy Frozen Foods Lobby. Other school lunch “standards” included in this helps keep french fries and salty foods on the menu for our nation’s school children. You know,
As supporters of liberty on every level, I feel it’s our duty to point out what is happening with SOPA, the “Stop Online Piracy” Act. This act will give unprecedented powers to the government to seize any website for “piracy”, the definition of which is quite vague and quite subjective. I encourage anyone regardless of political or philosophical beliefs to look further into this act and the implications it could have on freedom of speech for all of us. With
Believe it or not, liberty does actually have deeper philosophical meanings that go beyond things like being against taxes or loving Ron Paul. Advancing the philosophy of liberty is something we’d like to expand upon here at Lions of Liberty and will be doing so in greater detail in further posts. But for now, here’s a great video to get you started. We’d truly appreciate any thoughts on this, be they in agreement or in opposition!
This blog is intended to be a discussion of the philosophy of liberty and anything that relates to it. Lately you may have noticed there has been a bit of a shift more towards politics, and that’s because one of the greatest advocates of liberty in modern times, Dr. Ron Paul, is currently surging both in the polls and fundraising as we are merely six weeks away from the first caucus in Iowa. So it’s only natural that as the
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
Check out our twitter feed by following @LionsofLiberty_ (don’t forget the underscore!) at 8PM EST/5PM PST for my 1st experiment in live tweeting during the debate.

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_ . Don’t forget that underscore, or you’ll learn more than you ever wanted to know about Motocross and MMA attire. Whatever that means .
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
