Ron Paul Thinks There Should Be More Secessionist Movements in the U.S.

September 30, 2014 Secessionists across the world were inspired by Scotland's energetic attempt at independence from the United Kingdom earlier this month. Ron Paul, as it turns out, joined them.

In an essay on his eponymous institution's website Sunday, the former U.S. congressman from Texas wrote that any supporters of freedom should cheer secessionism because it allows for smaller government—a constant mantra for the libertarian and perennial presidential candidate, who didn't previously realize there were more than a handful of secessionist groups in the United States.

City Manager Says No Cameras Allowed – Gavin Seim Says No Way!

NO Cameras America (said the sign on the door)

Moses Lake is a small town of about twenty thousand run by corrupt a city manager named Joe Gavinski. He does the dirty work while the city council hides. During my Congressional race the city was stealing my signs, sometimes on camera. Why? Because I would not sign a contract with them for a grant of free speech.

Atlas Mugged: Galt's Gulch Chile is Dead

By Harry Cheadle | Vice.com

It was a good idea, in theory anyway. The plan was to form a sustainable community made up of people who believed in capitalism, limited government, and self-reliance. The site was already picked out: 11,000 acres of fertile land nestled in the valleys of the Chilean Andes, just an hour’s drive away from the capital of Santiago, to the east, and the Pacific Ocean, to the west. Residents could make money growing and exporting organic produce while enjoying Chile’s low taxes and temperate climate. This was no crackpot scheme to establish a micronation on a platform floating in the middle of the ocean (a common libertarian dream)—this was a serious attempt to build a refuge where free marketers and anarcho-capitalists could hole up and wait for the world’s fiat currencies to collapse. They called it “Galt’s Gulch Chile” (GGC), naming it for the fictional place where the world’s competent capitalists flee to in Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged.

The project was conceived in 2012 by four men: John Cobin, an American expat living in Chile who once ran unsuccessfully for Congress in South Carolina; Jeff Berwick, the globe-trotting founder of the Dollar Vigilante, a financial newsletter that preaches the coming end of the current monetary system; Cobin’s Chilean partner; and Ken Johnson, a roving entrepreneur whose previous investment projects included real estate, wind turbines, and “water ionizers,” pseudoscientific gizmos that are advertised as being able to slow aging.

Baby Murdered In Foster Care After Being Taken Away Due To Father’s Marijuana Use

Marijuana may be legal in Colorado, but authorities in the state are still using the drug as an instrument to tear families apart, this time with absolutely tragic consequences.

A baby girl was taken away from her biological parents, Tierra and Ted Place, after the father told human services that he used marijuana. Human services had been summoned to the home after a fight between the couple.

The baby, 11 month old Angel Lane Place, was dropped and shaken during her time in a foster home and died. Ted Place is now threatening to sue Mesa County.

There is no war for peace!

There is no war for peace.

From the President and down through the whole political regime, this powerful administration proclaims the moral high ground while they are, according to evidence, the clear instigators of war.

The U.S. government says that they want peace.

Well, I'd like to inform these hypocrites that war is the opposite of peace. The further involvement of the United States in Middle Eastern conflicts complicates the peace process.

The only way to promote peace is to BE PEACEFUL.

McCain says he would support Rand Paul for president

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) told The New Yorker he would support Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) for president if Paul is the Republican nominee.

“I’ve seen him grow, and I’ve seen him mature, and I’ve seen him become more centrist," McCain told The New Yorker's Ryan Lizza, who wrote a long profile of Paul.

"I know that, if he were president or a nominee, I could influence him, particularly some of his views and positions on national security. He trusts me particularly on the military side of things, so I could easily work with him. It wouldn’t be a problem.”

Albuquerque PD Officer makes remark about shooting homeless man James Boyd 2 hours before shooting

If he weren't a cop, this would be premeditated murder.

Two hours before Albuquerque Police Officer Keith Sandy shot and killed homeless camper James Boyd, he was recorded telling another officer that he would shoot Boyd in the penis with a shotgun.

Sandy responded to the scene on March 16th where Boyd refused to come down from a makeshift campsite in the foothills near Tramway and Copper. At the scene, Sandy saw former colleague State Police Officer Chris Ware. Sandy didn’t realize it, but Ware’s dash cam was rolling and picked up their conversation.
