The Last Hour
by Rep. Ron Paul | March 10, 2009
Imagine for a moment that somewhere in the middle of Texas there was a large foreign military base, say Chinese or Russian. Imagine that thousands of armed foreign troops were constantly patrolling American streets in military vehicles. Imagine they were here under the auspices of "keeping us safe" or "promoting democracy" or "protecting their strategic interests."
Imagine that they operated outside of U.S. law, and that the Constitution did not apply to them. Imagine that every now and then they made mistakes or acted on bad information and accidentally killed or terrorized innocent Americans, including women and children, most of the time with little to no repercussions or consequences. Imagine that they set up checkpoints on our soil and routinely searched and ransacked entire neighborhoods of homes. Imagine if Americans were fearful of these foreign troops and overwhelmingly thought America would be better off without their presence.
Imagine if some Americans were so angry about them being in Texas that they actually joined together to fight them off, in defense of our soil and sovereignty, because leadership in government refused or were unable to do so. Imagine that those Americans were labeled terrorists or insurgents for their defensive actions, and routinely killed or captured and tortured by the foreign troops on our land. Imagine that the occupiers' attitude was that if they just killed enough Americans, the resistance would stop, but instead, for every American killed, 10 more would take up arms against them, resulting in perpetual bloodshed. Imagine if most of the citizens of the foreign land also wanted these troops to return home. Imagine if they elected a leader who promised to bring them home and put an end to this horror.
Imagine if that leader changed his mind once he took office.

WASHINGTON — Rand Paul is demonstrating how he could disrupt the Republican presidential field if he seeks the nomination, sparring with potential rivals over Iran, Cuba and the Pentagon’s budget in a face-to-face forum that offered an early preview of the feisty policy debate to come.
The Kentucky Republican joined fellow first-term senators Ted Cruz of Texas and Marco Rubio of Florida on stage Sunday evening in California for a summit organized by Freedom Partners. That group is the central hub of the powerful network of organizations backed by conservative billionaires Charles and David Koch.
What I posted on the site:
All I know is that I have a visceral response to Ron Paul. When I hear him speak I think, "There's someone who's telling the TRUTH!" Rand just seems watered down. Also, I was a national delegate who unbound & helped nominate Ron Paul in 2012. Didn't know he was nominated, did you? But, he was. Rancid Prepus & the RNC wouldn't even let Ron give the nomination speech to which he was entitled. What has Rand done about this? Just gotten even cosier in bed with the RNC. Remember the saying about lying down with fleas?
Former Fox employee commits suicide, claims he was fired over ‘sensational’ Facebook post.
"The former employee of a Fox affiliate in Texas committed suicide outside Fox News headquarters, blaming the network for ruining his life. He claimed he was fired over a "sensational" Facebook post about the Austin police chief."

I was headed into unknown waters today, but Ron Paul was the rock I could lean upon. Golden Rule explained to 7 years oldSubmitted by Jeppe on Fri, 01/23/2015 - 21:55
I had to explain it to him, in different ways. Karma, self benefit (who will trust or be-friend a thief?), Daddy is sad, and I was.
Being 7 years old, he is the oldest in a pack of 3, I have not been confronted with this situation before. I don't jump to conclusions, and make threats and confiscations, straight away. I also dont hit them. Its not even legal here.
I remember when I first discovered Ron Paul. I was a conservative on the religious right, studying to become a pastor, and blissfully unaware of the real going ons of the world. I was watching a presidential debate sponsored by AFA (American family association) in the fall of 2007. The turn out to the debate was abysmal, with only candidates not afraid to voice their faith present. Huckabe was there, that other catholic neocon, some other no name guy and Ron Paul. I listened carefully and took notes, and then something happened, I had a religious experience via Ron Pauls words.

The year of the sheep (ram, goat) is coming soon.
It begins Feb 19th in China, Feb 18th here in the States (the 2nd new moon after the winter solstice)
Sheep are benevolent mostly but can be stubborn as well. They are all about working together and finding harmony and balance.
The year is still a wood year so spring is still in the air but now we are in a yin year. Yin is the dark side of the hill...more feminine, the moon.
So, the seeds were planted, had time to germinate and then sprout! Now the plants are getting more mature and darker in color. This is the time that their direction and growth are fine tuned. This is when they reach for their best accomplishment. This is the time where they begin to mature and blossom everywhere.
With a Washington Post writer in the audience to compose a hatchet job about Ron Paul and his friends, Tom Woods told the crowd exactly how the media operates, and why we're not allowed to discuss serious things.
It’s marijuana Friday here at Lions of Liberty! In today’s edition of The Morning Roar, I talked about the recent proposal in Ohio that could lead to legalization of weed this year. And in Felony Friday we’ll examine a recent story out of North Dakota, which reported that the police are terrified at the prospect of marijuana becoming legal in the state.
It’s not difficult to understand why the police would be against marijuana decriminalization or legalization. Ending prohibition would result in a huge loss of revenue. Hey, at least they’re being honest!
SURPRISE!! Boehner-McConnell retreat in Obama amnesty fight, panics conservatives
By S.A. Miller - The Washington Times - Sunday, January 25, 2015
Conservatives saw it as raising a white flag when Republican congressional leaders pledged not to withhold funding for the Department of Homeland Security in the fight over President Obama’s deportation amnesty, stoking fears that for the next two years House Speaker John A. Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will consistently surrender.

VIDEO: Sheriff Tells Citizens to Defy NY SAFE Act’s Pistol Permit Renewal Rule at Oath Keepers Meeting [BenSwann.com]
By: Barry Donegan Jan 26, 2015
At a January 17 meeting of the Oath Keepers, Fulton County Sheriff Thomas J. Lorey told attendees to defy the state's new pistol permit recertification rule in an effort to gum up the law's enforcement by causing an overwhelming number of permit expirations on the same day.
