People ARE waking up.

Can you feel it? Everybody is starting to sound like us. I don't know how to handle this, we're going mainstream. It's exciting but frightening. I don't know...Just keep swimming.

People are waking up? Hopefully. My worry: are they fast enough?

2016 General Election Voter Demographics

2016 General Election Voter Demographics for Dr. Rand Paul
This is food for thought. Please pay attention to the real terms scenarios and voter demographics coming up in three years.

This is the live web link: http://www.city-data.com/forum/elections/1734887-demographic...

coffee ready?

what's for breakfast?

Question.....

Many here seem to think the 'sheep' will never learn, and there is no hope.

Obvious question is why are you here? What is the point?

Seems that if each of us here figured it out, why can't more? Was everyone here born with the knowledge they now have?

History shows that countries always degrade to tyranny, but history didn't have the internet. There is an alternative to gov't propaganda.

Besides, I don't see it as all or nothing. Every person added to the resistance makes it more difficult for gov't to take away our freedoms.

We have to make it as difficult as possible - one person at a time.

For those who have already awakened

Here's to the crazy ones: http://www.dailypaul.com/292212/dont-watch-this-okay-please-...

Powerful Primates

Iowa seems awakened

He's sitting at 18 points, and if Ted Cruz doesn't run he would take most of Cruz's 10 points as well.

Cruz was not born in the US

Doesn't that disqualify him?

Technically he is a US-born citizen

Since his Mother is American, but it would be difficult for him to run, especially considering all his birther talk about Obama all the while Cruz being born in Calgary.

Yay!

Waking up to the next crop of 'leaders' is so exciting!

Nope, still sleeping/sheeping.

I hear it a bit differently....

I continue to hear more and more people who are mad-as-hell...they now see the scandals and corruption, the spying and banking conspiracies...but they all seem to think like Tea Party folks: voting Republican is the only solution!
When I point out the obvious (there is no difference, and that the only 2 parties are We the People vs. the Scoundrels in DC), they become defensive and start some church drivel...or Glen Beck drivel...Don't get me wrong, I'm glad they're angry and skeptical, I just wish they weren't all so damned stupid and learned to think for themselves. Yes, I suggest to them to throw their TV's into the pond and never watch it again...most just don't get it and don't WANT to get it.
I'll keep trying....

HuffPost Comment

This is from a "Pundit" and it has 152 faves. It would have been banned a few months back.
"The government probably knows an Egypt-style revolution is coming as soon as the economy collapses again. The economy is bound to collapse again since the structural flaws that caused it to collapse before have not been fixed. We still have a fiat currency, unregulated corporations, legalized bribery, high unemployment, stagnant wages, dwindling resources, environmental degradation, climate change, and a distrust of government among most of the people. It's only a matter of time before people take matters into their own hands, and the police will be ready for it with their massive arsenal."

We now live in a post-Snowden

We now live in a post-Snowden era.

A vote for Ron Paul is a vote for Thomas Jefferson. A vote for Rand Paul is a vote for James Madison.

Eight Million Plus and Three Plus Million

Well, if we are conversing about elections we need eight million plus Republicans voters to wake up and in the general election at least three plus million voters to wake up.

Gotta take it back to the paper ballot...

..or else it's all for naught. Hate to say it--and no disrespect--but the electronic system is, in effect, HACKED.

What would the Founders do?

If we

want to win by the machine vote. The polls can't be 44-46 percent.It has to be 70-30 or 80-20. It needs to be a landslide if we want to win by the machines vote. I truly believe they are rigged.

There is NO doubt. The fix is in. Everything IS rigged...

The tipping point is nigh. Unfortunately the waking up of the populace may be another well scripted power consolidation. A societal collapse could achieve two of the Bankster's main goals, 1) depopulation 2) world governance. I would LOVE to be wrong, here.

Aaron Russo, Nikola Tesla, Ron Paul, I'm jus' sayin'

Yep just like your phone,

Yep just like your phone, cell phone, and computer.... Do you really thing the ballot box will work for you? NOT

People counting ballots...

... with representatives from both (albeit fake) parties counting and double-checking and recording votes is MUCH more difficult to "hack" than what has been already going on with Diebold machines and the like. Get it? It's at least still a *local* event and so forth, and not an event where some clown can utterly erase votes with the wave of a magic (remote) device.

What would you suggest is a better alternative? I mean, sincerely? What else has a better chance of accuracy / not being fucked with?

(And, yes, we all know elections have included fraud / dead voters / etc. from the get-go, so it's obviously an imperfect solution.)

Check out the book(let) "Black Box Voting" if you want a good cry....

I love this post.

My recent stories....

A few weeks ago my neocon party loyalist dad stopped for a visit. He's the guy who couldn't support Ron Paul because of his foreign policy.

I had a copy of RP's farewell speech on a table. Dad started reading in the evening, and was reading until after I went to bed. In the morning he got up and started reading it again. He asked where I got it. I said a guy at work gave it to me, but I'm going to get more, so he could have it if he wanted.

A half hour later I noticed him sneaking it into his bag before he left.

I have participated for years on the political forum for a country living site. Many against Ron Paul, including one nasty neocon individual who would accuse me of spamming anytime I mentioned Ron Paul's name. Just recently I noticed him saying we should stop meddling overseas. I had to let him know I was happy that people were finally accepting Ron Paul's advice.

I'm sure that ruined his day.

Educate the 'wakers'

Those that are waking up need to be educated, which makes the difference between people "following the next trendy thing" and citizens who know what they are waking up to. It would be my hope that they read books (you know which ones!) and watch videos, become active at the local level, and have instructive conversations/discussions with liberty veterans (those with wisdom and experience--not the military type).

Making the Liberty Movement 'popular' isn't enough. There needs to be follow through.

Educate, educate, educate.

Just my thoughts.

Right On!

there is so much innovation and fun in messaging liberty!!

Wishful Thinking

Denial is a dangerous thing because it frees a person from the burden of having to think of a solution when a solution is what's needed most.

For Christmas & Birthday Gifts Give Gifts With Value

We try to give our kids one silver coin each birthday and Christmas. Its a way to educate them on the value of real money.

Be creative! Make it fun!

thats a great Christmas idea, nice!!

The rule in advertising is you have to tell someone 7 times...

before the will hear you.

And then they will magically transform from denying the fact to saying they've 'always known that'.

It's annoying but that's the way brains work apparently...
