Last night I had the pleasure of attending the Ron Paul Youth Rally that was held on the UCLA campus here in Los Angeles. I attended with a good buddy who is a fervent Ron Paul supporter as well as friend, web designer and Lions of Liberty photographer, Tommy John. The rally was organized as a “youth rally,” however it was an open event, so youngish early 30s gents like ourselves could still attend. Let me tell you first and
Put your shoelaces back on your shoes, drain the warm bath and pull your wallets out Donate to Ron Paul’s crucial Money Bomb (the over the top suicide analogy may be a bit much, but we are passionate bunch), even some CBS news contributors felt the need to mention that in the increasingly likely event of a brokered convention this August, Ron Paul stands his best, albeit still long, shot at the Presidential nomination in his lifelong struggle to wrestle the
Update: Two pieces of good news. Ron Paul issued an email to supporters stating that the Give Me Liberty Money Bomb has been extended through Sunday and Ron Paul Campaign Manager Jesse Benton issued the following statement during an interview with MSNBC yesterday: We’re hoarding cash so we can go ahead and run hard in Texas and California. It is music to the ears of supporters to hear that the Ron Paul campaign for President is going to fight to win the
Rick Santorum is no stranger to media attention. This week he was at the center of two controversial stories. Unfortunately, I doubt either event will sink his campaign for the Republican Nomination. If we have learned anything during this election cycle, it is that the Rick Santorum supporter is not dissuaded to vote for their candidate by the strange statements that come out of his mouth, or his previous support for big government solutions. Perhaps his followers will question his
I am almost speechless after hearing the disgusting trash spilling from the mouth of Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, who stated at a Congressional hearing of the Armed Services Committee that, “International permission trumps Congressional permission,” for military action. In this specific case, regarding the U.S. using force in Syria, where we will soon be engaged in yet another unconstitutional war. This is the pathetic, self-important attitude of the Obama administration – that they are a power unto themselves that can
President Obama has been topping news reports repeatedly recently with his various statements regarding Iran, Israel and the possibility of Iran becoming a nuclear power. Most recently Obama met with Israeli PM, Benjamin Netanyahu, and in a widely quoted statement informed him that the U.S. “had Israel’s back.” This comes in the wake of Netanyahu claiming that Israel would “reserve the right to defend itself,” with the potential for a military strike against Iran’s nuclear sites a strong possibility. Obama
THIS JUST IN FROM THE LIONS OF LIBERTY NEWS DESK: It has just been confirmed, in case everyone wasn’t already convinced, that U.S. Senator John McCain – most recently infamous for his co-authoring of the NDAA – is a crazy effin’ warmonger! Yes, today Senator John McCain, apparently thinking that killing oh 30,000 people or so in Libya and handing it over to Al Qaeda wasn’t quite enough, has called for U.S. airstrikes on the last secular country in the
Something happens to the human body after 48 hours or so in Las Vegas. For a solid week afterward, it essentially rebels against the mind that ordered it through a seemingly pointless hardcore bootcamp of consumption and a complete lack of regard for the most basic of health tenets. Exhausted and need to get some shuteye? Have fun tossing and turning all night. Need to finally grab a bite to eat after a weekend of forgetting that food comes in solid form?
I don’t put much faith in these debates and neither should you. If you decide your voting preferences on the little snippets that these shows provide then you probably haven’t done your due diligence. I found this particularly true in the case of our champion of liberty Ron Paul. Paul, by his own admission and the critiques of many, is not a great debater and besides, you should know his answers to all the silly questions before he even responds.
Just in case you didn’t realize it, we are here to inform you that Ron Paul is not only still in the race, but also a growing force to be reckoned with. It looks like the media has found its timely darling in Rick Santorum….again, and its nationwide disciples are playing along. His latest surge depresses me more than his last go round, but this one worries me a lot less. We’ve seen this before and we will see it
