Happy Thanksgiving Michael...

...and to all the DailyPaul community.

Right here is the greatest bastion of liberty I know of.

Maybe we're giving our founders a little to be proud of after all their sacrifices.

Because sadly if there were here today, they would not recognoze this country as the sanctuary for individual liberty which they had envisioned.

The fascist "tobacco free" movement

I recently graduated college with a master's degree in engineering. I have recently discovered that many of the places I have been hoping to work for have recently become "tobacco free", meaning no smoking on the premises. The irony is that the tobacco free clause is usually included in the same policy section with the equal opportunity and anti-discrimination clauses. Unfortunately, my experience and interest is in research and development, but this seems to be the area most affected by these policies.

An open letter from Libertarian Party Chair Nicholas Sarwark to Sen. Rand Paul

For Immediate Release | Tuesday, November 25, 2014

Dear Sen. Paul,

We agree with you that Congress should obey the Constitution. We should never engage in foreign wars without a congressional declaration of war, a restraint on military action put in place by our Founding Fathers to ensure lawmakers never send our troops to war without deliberation.

But a constitutional war in the Middle East is just as bloody, destructive, and likely to incite terrorism as an unconstitutional war.

Our half-century of interventions in the Middle East have been a colossal failure. We have provided arms, military training, and subsidies to virtually every country in the region, inciting continual war and unrest. This has created a breeding ground for international terrorists that pose a real danger to our country and the world — one that would not have existed had we kept our noses out of the affairs of other countries.

U.S. military interventions have put our troops in harm's way, separated them needlessly from their families, and led to tens of thousands of American deaths and casualties — plus many more losses for innocent citizens of foreign countries.

Can Ron Paul and Conservative Evangelicals Save a Texas Death-Row Inmate - Mother Jones

Mother Jones:

Trial transcripts, medical records, and expert witness testimony have documented that Panetti suffers from severe schizophrenia. He believes Texas is going to execute him to stop him from preaching the gospel—not because he shaved his head, donned camo fatigues, and shot and killed his in-laws in 1992. The Supreme Court has declared that executing the mentally ill violates the Eighth Amendment's prohibition on cruel and unusual punishment, but several Texas and federal courts—including the US Supreme Court—have reviewed Panetti's case, and each one has ruled that the state can proceed with his lethal injection. Now, with Panetti’s execution scheduled for December 3, the only thing that might save him is a national campaign being mounted by conservatives, including former Texas Republican congressman and libertarian icon Ron Paul.

Ted Cruz: 'I Don't Think I'm All That Conservative'

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) attended a lunch with influential members of the Jewish community hosted by former Democratic Leadership Council chairman and mega-philanthropist Michael Steinhardt, according to the New York Observer.

After listening to concerns that his association with the tea party movement could potentially wreak havoc on his prospects should he run for president in 2016, Cruz blamed the media for inventing "a new caricature" that portrays him and some Republicans as "crazy."

Daily Dose of Ferguson Keeps Amnesty Executive Orders Off the Front Page.

Imagine that?

A distraction. You would think we would all be used to it by now.

But these distractions are so overwhelming, so "important", so craved by the American public, that we MUST watch them, we MUST critique them, we MUST "understand" what happened. You are programmed to think you want to know until a week, two weeks later and then, wait a minute, what about that amnesty issue?

Too late. That's old news, isn't it?

Something else comes down the line to distract.

We need something to get us to the football playoffs and the holiday season so here it is. An event that was, really, a non-event. According to witness testimony the homicide was justified. Was it?

Eric Holder will now take his turn at the podium for Chapter 2 as the amnesty issue must REALLY be ignored for awhile longer.

What about those 12 million illegal immigrants that just got added to the welfare roles, MSM?

Crickets.

How To Get An Endless Supply Of Food From Your Pond!

If you have considered cutting the ties that bind your homestead with the unpredictable future that correlates with grid dependence, then you’ve probably also thought about how you would sustain your family’s dietary needs.

You have already stocked up on plenty of food, water and various supplies to protect your family in case of a grid-down emergency. But you know as well as anyone else does that if the grid stays down for too long, then those supplies are not going to last, and you will have to think of other ways to ensure that your family stays fed.

If you are already living on a homestead furnished with a pond, then you are living with a valuable resource. Having a productive watering hole with a bountiful fish population to supplement your family’s food needs can be a priceless commodity, but if you don’t keep a close eye on it, a lot can go wrong.

Not Long From Now

Not Long From Now

Not long from now she’ll ask me,
While sitting on my knee,
About the ringing of the Bell again,
And the revival of liberty.

Then I’ll tell her of the rise,
Of Leviathan and his lies,
Of how we woke up again,
And tyranny’s demise.

I’ll tell her about our movement started by Ron Paul,
And about the oppressor and how we made him fall,
I’ll tell her how we stood tall again,
While responding to the call.

And the ringing of the Bell again,
Proclaiming liberty to all.

What about Eric Garner (In my opinion, a true libertarian)

#ItStopsToday

I have been frustrated about this since the latest set of riots.

The media picked this "Officer involved shooting" because it was a divisive issue. Because divisive politics is what fuels the media machine in this country. Because tribal "Us against Them" narratives are what sells.

They didn't pick Eric Garner, what happened two weeks prior! AND WE HAVE BEEN COMPLICIT! This is Trayvon Martin all over again!

And liberals have been complicit!!! Where is the outrage about Eric Garners cold blooded murder???

Liberals don't care about him, because he owned a business, sold cigarettes, and didn't pay his taxes!

They don't care, because like a man, he stood up bravely against the leviathan and said "It ends today"! And where is the indictment of his cold blooded murderer??? Nobody knows! Nobody cares, because they are to busy talking about Mike Brown, the convenience store thug, and whether or not he deserved to die!

The REAL Ferguson Conspiracy

The REAL Ferguson Conspiracy

HOW DID THIS CASE GET PICKED???

Everyone has been railroaded by the media into a box canyon. Yes, there are thousands of bloodthirsty killer-cops out there. No, Darren Wilson is not one of them and the verdict was correct.

We were all duped, the innocent Gentle Giant walking while black gunned down in cold blood....

We were roped in.

Then the other facts dribbled out: Brown was stoned. Brown robbed the cigar shop. Brown attacked the cop. Etc.

YOU ARE SHEEPLE! You should have given up the ghost a long time ago.
