Words cannot describe the the feeling of hopelessness that has overtook my body as I realized there are not one, but two more effin’ GOP Debates this week, beginning tonight with the NBC Debate in Tampa. We’re likely to see Paul and probably even Santorum mostly ignored and marginalized as the media builds it’s storyline of Romney v. Gingrich and that Paul, despite still being in a strong position with delegates and fundraising in a divided field, is irrelevant and
This just in: Senator Rand Paul, who in his short time in the Senate has valiantly fought against various government tyrannies such as the Patriot Act, Section 1031 of the NDAA, as well as the abuses of the TSA, has been detained by one of the very agencies he has sought to curtail. Politico has confirmed that Senator Paul was detained by the TSA in Nashville after refusing a full-body patdown. This was after an “anamoly” was found on the Senator’s
Keep your Twitters tuned to @LionsofLiberty_ (make sure to include the underscore in the name) tonight for our LIVE tweeting of the second South Carolina GOP debate. It will be funny, poignant and full of solemn lamentations about the oh-so-sad terminations of Rick Perry and Jon Huntsman’s campaigns. We will be distraught to see Huntsman’s trio of hot daughters (…OK, two out of three…it’s like the Kardashians of politics over there…) fade back into that dark and desolate land of
” First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win”. Most people attribute the above quote to Mahatma Gandhi, though it is disputed and there is no documentation of whether he actually said it or not. And yes, I only mentioned that so I don’t get spam bombed by the Blog Accuracy Nerd Police with comments about how I’m selling lies to the world and most likely burning kittens in my free time.
It is exciting to see the push back to SOPA and PIPA that is being communicated today via various forms of protest on the internet. We would blackout our website here at Lions of Liberty, but then where would you find comparisons between SOPA, PIPA, and NDAA Section 1021? Lions of Liberty provided our insights into SOPA and PIPA earlier today and twice last fall, here and here. In addition, to these two liberty eroding bills there was a third signed weeks ago that makes SOPA and PIPA
Lions of Liberty is standing in unison with many other online content hubs to protest SOPA or the “Stop Online Piracy Act,” and PIPA “Protect IP Act.” A detailed description of these First Amendment-infringing acts can be found at Wikipedia, which is also protesting with a blackout of content for 24 hours, save for the information on SOPA and PIPA. In brief, these two acts were written to protect US-generated intellectual property in all forms (Film, TV, Music, Writing, etc).

Another GOP contender bit the dust today, as Jon Hunstman announces he is dropping out and predictably endorsing Romney, as all of the other dropouts will inevitably do in the hopes of landing some sort of fancy ambassadorhip to Papua New Guinea. This will hopefully pave the way for more time for the only sane man on stage, Dr. Paul, in tonights 49,032nd GOP Debate. As usual, you can follow Lions of Liberty’s debate coverage LIVE on our Twitter feed
Well, ladies and gentlemen, it looks like we have some of our first candidates for indefinite detention under the new NDAA for the crime of supporting terrorists. And we don’t have to look further than the current crop of GOP candidates! Yes folks, it’s true: Rick Santorum and Newt Ginrich support terrorism. Imagine this scene: It’s a sunny, cloudless January day in New York City. New Yorkers are bustling about Times Square when suddenly…BOOM!!! A car explodes as a mysterious
Tuesday night felt good. No disappointing surprises by the name of Santorum and no media engineered surge to usher in another episode of the “Anti Romney Show” starring Jon Huntsman, just a strong second place showing for Ron Paul and, in the good Dr’s words, “a victory for the cause of liberty!” More delightful than any of the numbers flashing across the screen was his almost childlike excitement evident throughout his moving speech. “He (Romney) certainly had a clear cut
