Booed in the Bible Belt

Booed in the Bible Belt

I didn't realize how dark it was until that night,
Of all places, I thought they would get it right,
But in darkness that could be felt,
They booed Ron Paul in the Bible Belt.

In the land of chapels and churches and more,
Where Bibles can be bought in every store,
Abysmal darkness enveloped all,
As they booed Dr. Ron Paul,
And under ever-darkening skies,
They cheered those with blood-lust in their eyes,
In the very place where great men once prayed and knelt,
They booed Ron Paul in the Bible Belt.

It was when Ron Paul took a stand,
Apply the Golden Rule to every land,
Quoting the words that Jesus said,
But he spoke to hearts quite dead,
And in that darkness that could be felt,
They booed Ron Paul in the Bible Belt.

We the people of Canada own the central Bank but it was stolen in 1974.

In a class action suit filed by Lawyer Rocco Galati on December 12, 2011 there has been a complete News Blackout regarding the proceedings of this lawsuit.

UPDATE: BREAKING NEWS – No one else will cover.

How I'm Working to Make Liberty as Popular as the NFL

I spent 7 years in the Army and Army Reserves and had planned on making a career out of it, but when I started to notice that the freedoms I thought I’d been fighting for overseas were being eroded here at home, it led to my becoming a civilian again and a peace and freedom activist.

Some of you might remember the video that made sure I became a civilian again -


http://youtu.be/BvrlGhdQZac

After making that video, I immediately wanted to help make things right, so I got involved in politics, volunteered on a few campaigns, worked on a few, and managed a congressional campaign. We were largely ignored by the media, and I came to believe that until we changed the media, we’d always be on the losing end of things. I had that belief reinforced when told that most movements that won the day in the past, had won because of something in the media that became popular, pushed the culture, and then the culture pushed the political class.

Code Pink Tries to Arrest Kissinger – John McCain Tells Them “Get Out of Here You Lowlife Scum”


http://youtu.be/4tby1Ke2odY

A Senate hearing opened this morning with Code Pink protesters trying to arrest former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger for “war crimes.”

The protesters, bearing signs reading “Kissinger War Criminal” and “Cambodia,” rushed up behind the 91-year-old diplomat at the witness table of the Senate Armed Services Committee, which was holding a hearing on global challenges and the U.S. national security strategy.

.........

Later, when Kissinger began his opening statement, more protesters popped up in the room, screaming about Vietnam and rattling off his “war crimes.”

Cop Tases Handcuffed Girl Until She Becomes Vegetative, Dies

TAMPA (2/8/14) — A 20-yr-old girl’s family has filed a lawsuit against a cop after their daughter was left in a brain-dead, vegetative state until she died.

Officer Cole, who was known as “Trigger Happy Trooper,” can be seen on dashcam video Tasing the girl until she passed into a vegetative state (footage below).

She clearly posed no threat to the officer, but he Tased her anyway.

She was in handcuffs at the time.

Once he Tased her in her back, she fell to the pavement and became paralyzed.

She said, “I can’t get up.”

The officer sneered, “I don’t want you to get up,” as the high voltage electricity made its way through her limp body.

Liberty through Innovation

'Invention is not Enough' is the first chapter of 'The Innovator's Way' and I'd like to begin by stating that the Invention is Liberty. One might argue whether Liberty is indeed an invention or who invented it. I will argue that if we treat Liberty as an invention we can get the widespread adoption of it using the practices described in ‘The Innovator’s Way’.

Liberty is not Enough. The concept of Liberty is not enough. Practical Liberty requires the widespread adoption and use of Liberty, in general. "I've always said Liberty was a good idea!" That's what we have to get everyone saying. Here's how I think it can be done.

The innovation, using Evans' term, is not simply Liberty; it is Liberty put to use. I personally think life without Liberty is not a leisurely pastime, but instead a laborious task. Liberty requires widespread use in order to truly reap the benefits. It is too costly to maintain Liberty and collectivism in tandem, so we must get a vast majority of our fellow citizens to buy into Liberty as a practice. As a way of life.

What does Liberty mean to you?

All these thoughts about showing up so as not to get fined, and liberty not being as popular as football has me wondering.

What does Liberty mean to people? A friend of mine in Boston told me that the concept of liberty is too abstract to easily grasp onto. It has to be made concrete for people to really identify with it. That is when I came up with the slogan "Liberty is the right to be who you are." I think that is a succinct summary of one aspect of liberty.

But what does Liberty mean to you? You can be succinct or verbose. I'm curious as to how you define it.

I very much enjoy reading your thoughts, good people of the Daily Paul!

I slandered the hero Adam Kokesh

Although I visit the site often, I don't post here at the Daily Paul anymore. I agree with Michael Nystrom that with Rand most likely running for president, the site is changing into something it was not when Ron was running for president in 2008 and 2012.

However, I do want to get something off my chest that has been bothering me for quite some time. I've said some nasty things on here about Adam Kokesh when he was planning to have an armed march on Washington that I deeply regret and wish I could take back. This was partly the fault of Jack Daniels and trying to get the best of his supporters on here when going back and forth on posts and comments. There is nothing more cowardly than to anonymously slander someone on the internet and I have to admit that I am guilty of that charge.

Unlike Chris Kyle, Adam Kokesh is a hero who has made great sacrifices for the movement and peace in general. I know he is not a Christian, but he certainly conducts himself more like one than most of the warmongering Christians you see in church and Fox News. Like Christ, he speaks the truth and is willing to sacrifice himself for that cause.

Sons of Liberty: A Review

by Nelson Hultberg | Americans for a Free Republic

History channel, January 25-27, 2015.

Directed by Kari Skogland; written by Stephen David and David C. White.

The History channel’s new miniseries, Sons of Liberty, will anger the purists and the prudes. But it will delight the swashbuckler in the rest of us. It is a big, bodacious screening with superb production values that covers the lead-up years to the American Revolution, 1765-1775. Yes, certain liberties are taken with some of the facts and events. The main characters are glamorized. But the essential theme of America’s birth is kept intact: we as a nation were spawned by a band of rebels made up of assorted firebrands, smugglers, and philosophers all coalescing together under the rubric of Thomas Paine’s “Rights of Man.” Besides, what depiction of history is not romanticized by making the main characters a bit handsomer and younger than they, perhaps, were. Certainly not any depiction made for television.

The main character striding through Sons of Liberty is the famous Samuel Adams, played robustly by British actor, Ben Barnes, who doesn’t give us an actualization of Adams’ role in history, but rather a symbolization of it. First of all, Barnes is in his early thirties, and Adams was 51 years old when he fomented the Boston Tea Party. So the producers of Sons of Liberty are trying to give us the symbolic Sam Adams and what his role was in the creation of America. Sam Adams was the quintessential rebel mind. He didn’t have the scholarly genius of Thomas Jefferson, but he had a brilliant revolutionary mind. And valor permeated his entire life. He blended mind and defiance as well as, and perhaps better than, any of our Founders.

Sam Adams told his fellow patriots in 1773 in the build-up to the Boston Tea Party, “It does not take a majority to prevail…but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.”

This is what brings about all revolutionary change in history – small minorities of men and women fervently committed to a cause that will require courage and resourcefulness to bring into fruition. Yes, luck is also necessary, but mostly courage and resourcefulness because luck eventually descends upon us all. It’s the ones with courage who ride the luck into history and change the fate of mankind. Sam Adams and the “Sons of Liberty” were these kind of men. They seized the opportunity that the arrogant, blundering British gave to them.

Police Viciously Sent Dogs To Attack Female Student For Resisting To Answer Their Questions

On Norfolk State University grounds, police sent dogs to attack female student and Army Reserve private London Colvin. According to reports, she refused to answer any of their questions or give any information about a fight at a party she wasn’t even involved in. Right before the cops had the dogs charge at her, two of them sat on Colvin and then the dogs mauled her, according to eyewitnesses.

Colvin, a current Sociology major was leaving an off-campus party at 2:15 on a Sunday just as a fight erupted. She and her friends were approached by police about what happened or how it started and because she had nothing to do with it, she didn’t want care to have a discourse about it. The aftermath of her resistance has been shared through her cousin Whitney Dunn via the local paper Potomac Local. On Colvin’s behalf, Dunn said this:
