The 2016 Republican nomination contest spilled onto the Senate floor Thursday, turning a marathon budget debate into a battle over which candidate is prepared to lead the country at a time of war.
Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) will not seek re-election, he said in an interview with The New York Times published Friday. Reid has led the Senate Democrats since 2005.
The Senator released a video announcing his retirement and thanking his constituents.

In a preview of an upcoming documentary on French TV, Dr. Patrick Moore tells a Canal+ interviewer that glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup herbicide, was not increasing the rate of cancer in Argentina.
“You can drink a whole quart of it and it won’t hurt you,” Moore insists.
“You want to drink some?” the interviewer asks. “We have some here.”
“I’d be happy to, actually,” Moore replies, adding, “Not really. But I know it wouldn’t hurt me.”
“If you say so, I have some,” the interviewer presses.
“I’m not stupid,” Moore declares.

2016 Presidential Race
It began at 2:14 AM in a piece published by Time. Perhaps the publication simply could not wait until the morning to smear Rand Paul in a misleading fashion. In the article, the author expresses outrage toward the “stunning reversal” executed by Paul, as the Senator proposed a budget amendment that would increase defense spending by $76.5 billion.
I suggest that you use one of the two accepted ways to indicate A NEW PARAGRAPH.
I'm making this suggestion because of the number of Original posts I go to where I'm hit with a rather solid-looking block of words. I admit, I might be missing some worthy contributions. But it's unprofessional-looking, and I, for one, don't have the patience to spend time trying to figure out the piece's organization, reflecting the OP's train of thought: where one paragraph/point ends and the next begins.
This is just a suggestion. Take my advice or not, as you wish.
In order for fascism to continue to operate in government the powers that control it will do anything to retain their grip. If they think they will keep people placated by giving them "freedom" then they will give them "freedom". If they think that killing people will retain their power they will kill as many as it takes. Whatever it takes is their motto.
To me Ted Cruz feels like the candidate to quell the liberty fires that are alarming the powers that be. Ron Paul started something in the world that scares these people and they are acting to stop it with whatever means necessary.
I don't like Ted Cruz because he seems to talk down to everyone in a tone that's over sincere like a used car salesmen mimicking everything you say and do pretending to be your best liberty friend until you have to return the lemon he sold you.
Many are disillusioned by Rand Paul’s concessions to mainstream politics.
By Ben Schreckinger | Politico | 3/26/15
As he pulls together his expected presidential campaign in Iowa and New Hampshire, Sen. Rand Paul is confronted by defections from an unexpected quarter: the die-hard idealists whose energy powered his father’s campaigns.
That network of committed supporters was expected to convey to Paul, the natural successor to Ron Paul’s libertarian movement, providing him with a plug-and-play ground organization in the make-or-break early voting states. But instead of embracing the Kentucky senator, many of those grass-roots activists are turning their backs on him, disillusioned by the younger Paul’s concessions to mainstream politics.
Please allow me to apologize for not sending you emails for the past while. Sometimes we almost get too busy. But, with your support we are making a difference.
Today we have something very critical on the table, and we need you to take action.
Just another Establishment hack.
Seriously Folks, I am trying hard to understand the Libertarian Principles around here and keep running into a conflict I can't quite figure out. The practice of exercising Freedom of Speech tends to rule this board yet sometimes it comes to the point of total lack of Common Courtesy and verbal crulty. When Free speech is used to this extreme does it then violate the Golden Rule Principle that so many Ron Paul Libertarians talk about here?
American and Israeli military advisors were arrested while aiding Islamic State terrorists in Iraq.
Iraqi counter-terrorism forces arrested four foreign military advisors from the United States and Israel who were aiding the Islamic State, Iranian Tasnim News Agency reports.
ISIL is Secret American Army in Middle East – US Historian
Three of the arrested military advisors are dual citizens of the United States and Israel, while the fourth advisor is from a Persian Gulf country, Iraq’s Sarma News Agency said.
"Contrary to common belief even among the educated, Huxley and Orwell did not prophesy the same thing. Orwell warns that we will be overcome by an externally imposed oppression. But in Huxley's vision, no Big Brother is required to deprive people of their autonomy, maturity and history. As he saw it, people will come to love their oppression, to adore the technologies that undo their capacities to think.
"What Orwell feared were those who would ban books. What Huxley feared was that there would be no reason to ban a book, for there would be no one who wanted to read one.
"As Huxley remarked in Brave New World Revisited, the civil libertarians and rationalists who are ever on the alert to oppose tyranny "failed to take into account man's almost infinite appetite for distractions." In 1984, Orwell added, people are controlled by inflicting pain. In Brave New World, they are controlled by inflicting pleasure. In short, Orwell feared that what we fear will ruin us. Huxley feared that what we desire will ruin us.
"When a population becomes distracted by trivia, when cultural life is redefined as a perpetual round of entertainments, when serious public conversation becomes a form of baby-talk, when, in short, a people become an audience, and their public business a vaudeville act, then a nation finds itself at risk; culture-death is a clear possibility.
