ONLY A MIRACLE CAN SAVE AMERICA NOW

Republicans had an opportunity to nominate a real American constitutionalist, a statesman in the similitude of Thomas Jefferson or James Madison. That man was Texas Congressman, Ron Paul. Unfortunately, the Republican faithful seem to be incapable of discerning the marks of true greatness, not to mention fidelity to constitutional government. It is doubtful that most of them even understand what constitutional government is.
John McCain is no friend to gun owners. He is no friend to pro-lifers. He is no friend to fiscal conservatives. He is no friend to property owners. He is no friend to "family values" voters. He is no friend to America's blue-collar workers. He is no friend to small business owners. He is no friend to opponents of illegal immigration.
At some point, we Americans must decide whether we will tolerate the continued sellout of our freedoms and principles or not.

Ron Paul was Great at Goucher

Goucher College in Baltimore invited Ron Paul for their President's Forum lewrockwellthis evening (as in President of the College, not President of the US). The sophomore who introduced him did a wonderful job, Ron Paul's speech was inspiring, and then he answered about a dozen questions from the students. Some students appeared to be Revolutionaries, others, not so much. His reasoned answers on tough topics - from war to abortion, from the economy to education - must have enlightened some of those skeptical questioners.

Ron Paul: Ending the IRS

In observance of the true APRIL FOOL's day : April 15th
I have long been an advocate of ending the income tax and eliminating No More IRSthe IRS. People tell me that this is a laudable goal, but they don't see how it would be possible. The question that I am often asked is, "How would the government pay for the services they provide, or pay their employees, if there were no income tax?"
The income tax isn't necessary to pay for government services. Few people know that every penny of the income tax is used to service federal debt, a large percentage of which is held by foreign investors and governments. Our government is borrowing nearly three billion dollars a day in order to perpetuate the welfare state and an international war-making empire. The fruits of your labor are going directly to Saudi millionaires and Chinese communist officials.
If we stop incurring this debt, we can quickly end the IRS.

As a result of those events, since 1955 the real April Fools Day has fallen IRS is a Shamon April 15th every year, a day that will live in infamy because hundreds of millions of brainwashed "sheep to the slaughter" subserviently "give" the federal and most state governments extensively detailed information about their private personal financial lives, having already (throughout the year) had their wages robbed from them - by "voluntary compliance" - and on April 15th come hat-in-hand to beg IRS bureaucrats to give them back a small portion of their own property.
Now that Ron Paul has brought the IRS and the Federal Reserve into the national consciousness -- perhaps his name even induced you to read this article? -- what will YOU personally do? Consider at the very least becoming informed about the matter. Check out some of these references for more information:

County GOP goes against McCain

“We’ve had overwhelming success, statewide,” Fidler said. Rob Chase, a spokesmanreviewPaul activist, said the platform statement on war was developed locally rather than by the national campaign. Supporters of the Texas congressman have been shut out of some other counties, Chase said, but have found kindred spirits in Spokane County among some of the traditional Goldwater conservatives.
McCain supporters said the election of delegates to the state convention was more important than the platform fight, but on that score, too, the Paul forces had the upper hand. Of the 114 county delegates elected to the state convention, about 100 of them are supporters of Ron Paul.

Jesus, Ron Paul, and the IRS

In observance of the true APRIL FOOL's day : April 15th
What is the core principle here? Ownership. It all boils down to the nolanquestion, "Who owns me?" Whether you are a Christian and answer "God" or whether you are a humanist and answer "Myself," in neither case is the answer "the government."
Jesus pointed out that, even as the image of Caesar was stamped on Roman coins, the very image of God was stamped on His property, namely the people He created. Consequently, government has no legitimate claim upon the life of a man, which most clearly includes the fruit of his labor.

What Hillary Clinton & Barack Obama Will Never Do

For all their promises, there's one thing Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama absolutely will never do: leave us alone. They will not let us sink or swim by our own choices. They want to protect us from our faulty decisions so we will never learn our lessons, and others will never learn from watching our struggles. They want government to turn us into house pets who have lost all natural survival skills.
In his book "Leave Us Alone," Norquist points out that while there may be some Americans mesmerized by the Democratic Party's fantasy of government making life easy, there is still a large majority of Americans who want government to leave them alone to make life their own way. Norquist sees a revolution coming, but not the insane kind of "change" fancied by leftists. He chronicles a huge coalition of Americans who want to keep their money, keep their guns, keep their children, and keep their freedom to make decisions as they see fit.

Ron Paul finds fans of his libertarian message at Gettysburg College

He said economic changes he's prescribed would result in the savings of themorningcallbillions of dollars that could be pumped back into the economy. ''We could balance our budget and whittle down the debt,'' he argued. Ending the Iraq war and eliminating foreign bases would make the nation safer from terrorists because Americans would ''no longer [be] in their faces and on their land,'' he said.
For the sign-waving (''Ron Paul is the Enema America Needs''), slogan-chanting (''Restore the Republic!'') members of the Paul faithful, Friday's rally provided a bonanza of off-script moments in a campaign season so well-controlled it rarely allows for surprises.

Ron Paul: Candidate, Gettysburg College graduate returns to speak

On Friday, Paul said he is more optimistic today than he was a year ago the evening  sunabout the nation's awareness of foreign and domestic policy problems. His success in gaining support for his message is evidence of change, he said.
Paul predicted an inevitable economic crisis that will force the American people to reconsider the way the government handles the nation's money.
"What we have today is coming to an end," he said, adding that as president he would do away with the Federal Reserve and the income tax.

Paul is also a critic of the Patriot Act and the government's decision to wage war in Iraq. As president, Paul said he would bring troops home from all over the world and avoid further intervention in international conflicts.
"You can't spread goodness through the barrel of a gun," he said.

Petraeus' Self-Demotion

Ron Paul has once again exposed gross negligence in the neocon ranks. nolanThis time, the target wasn't just any warfare-statist or empire-apologist: it was the top military commander in Iraq—one likely to assume some level of responsibility once the Bush regime decides to bomb and invade that non-aggressive nation.
During the April 8 congressional hearing on the surging situation in Iraq, the Texas Congressman posed about 17 questions to General David Petraeus (commander of U.S. and coalition forces in Iraq) and Ryan Crocker (U.S. Ambassador to Iraq).* Each question packed more relevance to the American and Iraqi people than all the Petraeus-petting, warmongering non-questions slobbered by all those war propagandists posing as public servants, combined.

Ron Paul on Earmarks & The Federal Budget

Contrary to popular belief, adding earmarks to a bill does not increase speeched & statementsfederal spending by even one penny. Spending levels for the appropriation bills are set before Congress adds a single earmark to a bill. The question of whether or not the way the money is spent is determined by earmarks or by another means does not effect the total amount of spending.
Since reforming, limiting, or even eliminating earmarks does nothing to reduce federal spending, I have regarded the battle over earmarks as a distraction from the real issue-- the need to reduce the size of government.

We can even see how expanded federal government surveillance power might be used to do away with political rivals.

Ron Paul could teach the media a lesson

paulhandsThroughout the campaign, the media have treated Paul as a footnote. Snickering pundits all but dismissed him as a cranky kook, in the tradition of another Lone Star State insurgent, Ross Perot. Even when the mainstream publications covered him, you could imagine the assignment editors rolling their eyes in amusement, like parents patronizing a child.
Yet anyone who looked hard enough knew that there was more to Paul than an inability to amass delegates. Most of the media, turned off by his shrill libertarian leanings, missed the real news value of Paul's story -- namely, the Texas congressman's ability to connect intensely with voters.

The Economic Outlook

What we in Washington should be discussing is increased regulation speeches & statementsand scrutiny of public sector regulatory and oversight agencies such as the Federal Reserve Board, the SEC, and others. The Federal Reserve's actions got us into at least one depression in the last century, and have led to continued cyclical difficulties, including the current economic slowdown.

The Last Americans

"Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well armed lamb peace & paulcontesting the vote."
- Benjamin Franklin, 1759

As the message of Dr. Ron Paul rose onto the national stage there were brief moments of hope, clarity and splinters of sunshine, as his words echoed with the strength, integrity and character, so needed in a country smothered in the transparent fog of socialism and fascist propaganda. The message that was brought by Dr. Paul may be the last words, so uttered, that spoke to the principles of American freedom. It may be possible that Dr. Paul will be the Last American to run for political office.

The Mainstream Media Is Brainwashing You About Ron Paul

Never, ever forget that media is NOT a friend of the people. The pundits are paid to promote the agenda of their owners (banks, military industrial complex, the elites, corporations) and when they do not they have a career change like Tucker Carlson. The masses won't act until it directly affects them. That time is at hand.

Ron Paul at DUI School

This DUI thing is just the beginning. When you understand the insanity nolanof everything our federal government does that starts with the "War on" or in the name of "safety" you will be up in arms, figuratively if not literally.
Unfortunately, you are a criminal now. Very few people will stand up for you because they haven't suffered and have been convinced that you deserve to suffer because of your heinous act of having a few beers after work and subsequently turning too widely into your driveway. Had you actually hurt someone, you'd be in jail-not in this class. Few will stand up for you now because you are a criminal.

Ron Paul: Government Has No Right To Tell Us What To Do With Our Money

I stand opposed to the regulations being discussed today because I speeches & Statementsopposed the underlying bill upon which these regulations are based. The ban on Internet gambling infringes upon two freedoms that are important to many Americans: the ability to do with their money as they see fit, and the freedom from government interference with the Internet.
The proper role of the federal government is not that of a nanny, protecting citizens from any and every potential negative consequence of their actions. Although I personally believe gambling to be a dumb waste of money, American citizens should be just as free to spend their money playing online poker as they should be able to buy a used car, enter into a mortgage, or invest in a hedge fund. Risk is inherent in any economic activity, and it is not for the government to determine which risky behaviors Americans may or may not engage in.

Ron Paul’s Health Ideas Make Economic Sense

During these endless and mostly mindless debates Paul has showed stphimself to be the only original thinker in the whole stable of Presidential wannabes. For whatever reason – and all the conspiracy theories not withstanding – the media has just cut him out of the process which makes me think that there is no longer such a thing as reporting the news. What remains is only propaganda and promotion of corporate agendas.
Paul has been quoted as saying: “Our free market health care system that was once the envy of the world has become a federally-managed disaster.” And: “The federal government decided long ago that it knew how to manage your health care better than you and replaced personal responsibility and accountability with a system that puts corporate interests first.” Sounds right to me.

Paul campaigns at Pitt

pitt & paulWhen the rally opened with chants of "Ron Paul" and a standing thepittnewsovation, Paul said, "It sounds like the revolution has arrived in Pittsburgh."
During his speech, which was sponsored by Pitt's College Republicans, Paul emphasized the importance of protecting personal liberties, maintaining confidence in the free market, and reforming the economic system by eliminating "illegal" income taxes, government-produced inflation and the Federal Reserve. "I didn't realize that people your age knew so much about money and inflation," Paul said. "But it gets the largest applause at college campuses. I figured the first time it happened it was an accident - it was at the University of Southern California. But then at the University of Michigan, they started to burn Federal Reserve notes."

When he was finished, he came to Pittsburgh, where a "Ron Paul Freedom Rally" was held last night at the University of Pittsburgh's Bellefield Hall.
Paul told the audience he advocates "no income tax," no regulation of the Internet, an end to U.S. involvement in Iraq and a hands-off role for the Federal Reserve in the mortgage credit crisis.
He said the Bush administration and others in the Establishment "say one thing and do another."

The Ron Paul Moment Has Only Begun

Ron Paul has produced the kind of book that changes the person who lewrockwellreads it. It is one of the most persuasively argued and beautifully written defenses of the free society I have ever encountered. No president, no presidential candidate, indeed no American politician has ever written anything like this. But that is such faint praise, and such an unjust understatement, that I almost regret uttering it.
From the first page of this book to the last, Ron Paul tells his fellow Americans things that – if the usual political and media fare we are offered is any indication – they are not supposed to hear. As I’ve said in another context, Ron Paul’s The Revolution: A Manifesto is, to the establishment, rather like the man who shouts out in the middle of the show how the magician is really sawing the woman in half.

Since we are already in la-la land, let's talk about Hillary Clinton. The opedgood Senator is promising the people in the industrial mid west that she will bring back the jobs. Now, those people in the mid west surely know that Mr. Clinton ushered in both NAFTA and the WTO, which allowed their jobs to migrate to other countries. So why would they back Mrs. Clinton?
They do so because Mrs. Clinton is lying and the other candidates aren't lying as much. That's how we chose presidents in the U.S. Those who promise the most and demand the least...win.

Now that Ron Paul has brought the IRS and the Federal Reserve into the national consciousness -- perhaps his name even induced you to read this article? -- what will YOU personally do? Consider at the very least becoming informed about the matter. Check out some of these references for more information:

Why you can’t trust the mainstream media

Despite MSM’s meager 11 percent, trend charts showed Dr. Paul had five crossvilletimes as much support as all the other candidates combined and Internet polls showed that he won every TV debate. Old thinking politicians, bogged down with “machine” politics, believe that non-voters just don’t care and won’t show up. More likely, non-voters don’t care for what they were offered. Furthermore, old-thinking voters who depend entirely on print and TV news are out of touch, effectively disenfranchised since the hallmark of self-government is an informed electorate. But young voters offer hope.
