This is an eye opener! The Doorbell

‘PowerLineBlog’ recently held a competition for $100,000 for whoever could most effectively and creatively dramatize the significance of the federal debt crisis. Several entries have gotten a lot of attention, but the one that has gone most viral so far is ‘The Doorbell’.

If you haven't seen it yet, you may want to watch it here. It’s only 59 seconds long:

We're going to pay for that

We're going to pay for that debt whether we default or not. The only question is whether it comes out of your taxes or your mortgage rate. Ringing up the debt until there's a default has been the plan all along.

The Great Destroyer

While I agree with the premise of the video, I do have to wonder about the use of the Lincoln quote in the NRTC banner. Lincoln was one of the greatest destroyers of the Constitution. When will the mainstream Republicans understand the situation and listen to their own rhetoric? It's not all about those bad bad Democrats.

Ding Dong

Yeah I saw it on another post. I expected the goon to reach in and grab the kid.

Ron Paul Was Right

My own question. 62-68k.

Ron Paul Was Right

This is an ad for the sheeple; simple & to-the-point.

An attractive woman, a beautiful child, and the faceless voice of a Big Brother government official, who is giving the child an ultimatum to pay a huge surprise bill. This is the perfect wake-up call for those still asleep.
Thanks for posting.

and the truth of the matter is...

...the red-white-and blue Republican elephant logo nauseates me when I see it now....because they collectively HATE Ron Paul and our movement...well...despite their lipservice(to keep things "civil"), they should FEAR us because cutting and slashing government spending is where we plan on taking that party.

I no longer have sympathy for people who bought into "government promises"; you knew damn well the government RAIDED every last "pension/safety net/welfare" program they've started....the bottom line....your children will NOT have it better than you because they're going to learn the centuries-old virtue of honoring their parents and SACRIFICE for their parents' well-being!

This is the price we must pay for neglecting our founders advice towards civic responsibility!

"our farmers, merchants, and mechanics compose the strength of our nation; let them be wise and virtuous and WATCHFUL of their liberties; ,let them trust NO MAN to legislate for them if he lives in the habitual violation of the laws of his country" -

Simple and to the point.



The reason that I like Ben Swann so much is because he is short and to the point. I never cared for long news or long running commercials.

This is PERFECT, and leaves no time for the uninterested to shut it off.
