What Woke You Up?

Meet a few of the Paulbots, as the MSM and supporters of the party-line of either party like to call practically anyone who says anything in support of Ron Paul, among other more derogatory terms.  A few of their stories are below, more can be found here.

"I got back from Afghanistan in 2005 within a couple months my 4 years in the Marine Corps was up. I quickly realized I could not handle the US. I was mad at the world. I flew off the handle constantly. I went for help. I lasted about 5 min in the shrinks office and he was trying to give me drugs. I told him I didnt want drugs I wanted to be the old me. I decided to move. While in the Marine Corps I traveled all over Asia. I enjoyed Thailand the most and decided to move there. Fast forward to the last election. Sitting in Bangkok screaming at the TV watching the Fox News debate listening to the war mongering. Out of no where....."Just come home". Who is this guy I thought. I started to do research Dr. Paul and the libertarian philosophy. I started to look at people as individuals, unique in their own way. I wasn't mad at people anymore. Things made sense. I traveled back to the US about 10 months ago. I did it cause I believed in the cause of Liberty. I wanted to join the fight. I owe Ron Paul so much. I will be doing everything I can to see him get elected."

The Law (da, da, da, dummmm)

The Law's true essence is aptly captured by this comic strip created by two Danes, Mikael Wulff and Anders Morgenthaler.  All of their creations certainly will not appeal to America's prurient standards, but their humor is sure worth a look.

Former CIA Officer Speaks... Supports Bloggers.

Robert Steele definitely some interesting points in this intriguing speech.   However, the editing in the embedded video below makes it look like a stream of unconnected or loosely related topics for it combines quotes from within his presentation and some from the Q&A with the audience. If you want to see more, the full 40 minute presentation is here with 24 minutes of Q&A. It's worth it. Accompanying slides are here (they're quite 'busy', but they help since he just runs through them too quickly and doesn't have time to adequately cover all the material).

The main point I get from this is that central planning within our federal government is woefully inadequate to meet the needs of our country.  Misinformation, corruption, and ignorance run rampant through all segments of the government to the point even the "experts" running things are ignorant of how much they don't know, and it is readily apparent in the failures within our intelligence gathering communities from which he was involved.  This lack of knowledge and prevalence of misinformation is especially dangerous to our way of life, liberty and inalienable rights which are supposedly protected by our Constitution.  Bloggers are helping to convey information.

I'm going to add to a few comments to hopefully clarify or add to some of his main and supporting points. 

Civic Ignorance - How Bad Is It?

This video, Civic Ignorance - How Bad Is It?, illustrates just how bad it is. This is exactly why we're even having such an uphill battle in the fight for liberty and freedom in the first place and it's disturbing.   It highlights the root cause of the problem - our education system

We've all seen it with videos of various members of Congress wrongly interpreting Constitutional concepts or boldly saying they just don't care what's in the Constitution anyway because they believe, like Pete Stark, that they can do whatever they want. We have also seen Herman Cain's speech where he talks about lack of knowledge of what's in the Constitution saying people need to "reread" it, then he goes on to describe it with words that are in the Declaration of Independence. It's pathetic.

I've been following Dr Ron Paul for years and his campaigns for president. He's a great guy, but he's certainly not our last hope. Our children are our hope, for they are the leaders of tomorrow. He knows that and that's why he spends so much time on the college circuit, to teach tomorrow's leaders and sow the seeds that are so sorely lacking in our schools.

Which is Worse? Cancer in Our Bodies or Cancer in Government?

This documentary about Dr Stanislaw Burzynski's fight against the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to test his alternative approach to cancer treatment is the most hideous thing I've ever seen.

This whole fiasco is not about whether Dr Burzynski's theories and treatments work or not.  It's that this saga reveals much more about the hidden inner workings of the FDA, their corrupting alliance with big Pharmaceuticals with the Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) of 1992, and the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act furthering their power grab with blatant disreguard for our freedoms and our lives.

In 1982, FDA Bureau of Drugs Director Richard Crout stated, “I never have and never will approve a new drug to an individual, but only to a large pharmaceutical firm with unlimited finances.” [SOURCE: The Spotlight, January 18, 1982]

That's insane!
