Well what a week for the establishment! Gaddafi….dead! Iraqi war effort….over! Underwater mortgage holders…..saved! A real consensus building, nice couple of days for the Obama Administration; the war-hawks (which include everyone but independents these days) got another big kill, the peace keeping critics adamant about those promises to leave Iraq were silenced, and the “99%” got their bone tossed to them in changes to that sweet, divinely named HARP program. Thanks Prez, we really appreciate it! Please excuse me while
Newest polls are out from Rasmussen and the showing bodes well for advocates of liberty in that the two libertarian-leaning candidates are running well. Romney has a bit of a stronghold in NH, so he’s still at the top of the pops at 41% but it’s highly encouraging that Cain (yes, even though he has no clue what the hell he’s talking about most of the time) and Ron Paul are next in line. Hopefully this means the next debate
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.

Last weekend Ron Paul appeared on Meet the Press with David Gregory. If you are able to ignore Gregory’s condescending and impatient questioning style. This is a pretty good interview. Dr. Paul is given ample time to explain and defend his positions. If you have 15 minutes and want to know more about Dr. Paul principles, this is a good start. Here is the link. Enjoy!
When you ask someone what they think of when they hear the term “Tea Party”, you’re likely to invoke a variety of responses, largely based on the perceptions of the person answering. Ask a Democrat and you might here terms like “extreme” or “racist”. Ask a Republican and you’re more likely to hear talk of repealing Obamacare, ending bailouts and battling socialism. That’s the thing about labels in the political spectrum: they are designed to oversimplify complex issues, and they
Supposedly Albert Einstein defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. I have no idea whether or not this is true, but he does have cool hair so maybe he’s worth listening to. Regardless after the emotional and psychological trauma this lowly blogger has subjected himself to by live (ish) blogging the last two debates, I’d it’s safe to say my brain is about to enter some uncharted territory. From this point onward
I think the populace realizes that the good ole U.S.A has a giant deficit problem. Our government is addicted to spending. So far, the only budget cuts that have been offered are to decrease the escalation of future spending. Really? That’s the best congress and the president can do! They’ve decided to not increase spending as quickly as originally planned. Isn’t that special! Here’s an interesting perspective, from the Daily Paul, that presents our budget and deficit problem in simple, terms. Why the US was downgraded…U.S. Tax revenue: $2,170,000,000,000Fed budget: $3,820,000,000,000New debt:
