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,
Ladies and gentlemen, the buffoonery coming from the mouth of GOP Presidential Candidate Herman Cain has reached a new level. I realize that most of the main stream coverage on Mr. Cain revolves around his alledged touching, or thinking about touching, or talking about thinking about touching a woman other than his wife. This coverage has distracted many people from the fact that, this “Tea Party” candidate, is a big government loving, crony capitalist. There has been no shortage of
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.

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
My jaw just dropped so hard, I think I knocked out several molars on my keyboard…CBS…the same CBS that gave our man Ron Paul 89 seconds of debate time…has finally declared that the man is “Top Tier.” The latest poll out of Iowa has Dr. Paul in 2nd place, tailing only Herman Cain. Breakdown: – Cain 20%– Paul 19%– Romney 18%– Gingrich 17% Straight from the horse’s mouth, in an article titled “New poll shows 4-way tie in Iowa as
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
