Lo and behold: Washington, D.C., the capital of the United States and the center of federal government, has decriminalized the possession and consumption of small amounts of marijuana.

This is the evidence of what consistent pressure of showing up at GOP events, entering the delegate cycle, and becoming central committee members has done to the party.
The CPAC straw poll analysis shows foundational moves in attitude.
I've recommended this book now a couple of times: Positioning: The Battle for Your Mind. It is a business book about marketing, but it applies equally well to how the candidates in the GOP playoffs are attempting to position themselves in your mind. Here is an article from the Daily Caller that gets at it as well.
Read the book and you'll see how the game is being played from a different level.

Have you ever noticed that competitors open their stores next to each other? This seems crazy until you understand a principle called Hotelling’s model of spacial competition. And once you do, you’ll also understand how Ted Cruz is positioning himself to outmaneuver Rand Paul as the conservative candidate for the GOP nomination.
First, a quick, if simplistic, explanation of the principle. Let’s say you open a hotdog stand on a beach — and let’s say that hotdog stand is built on what would be the 40 yard line (if the beach were a football field.) Now, based on this information, you might expect that if someone else wanted to open a second hotdog stand, they would open it on the other 40 yard line. That would be the polite thing to do, after all. It would give each of you some space to operate, right? Wrong. The new hotdog stand would most likely go on the 41 yard line — right next to yours.
The reason is simple. The other guy now controls about 60 percent of the beach, while you control 40 percent.
So how is this playing out in the real political world? First, it’s important to know that Cruz and Paul are competing against each other to win the grassroots/populist/libertarian/tea party (however you want to define it) division. (For our purposes here, the other candidates represent different stores on the same Republican field. Some are selling caviar, but only Cruz and Paul are hotdog stands.)
Question in Textbook:
Suppose that in the year 2029, the United States should fall into an economic depression worse than that which begain in 1929. If an eloquent political leader should demand the abolition of Congress, the nationalization of the stock market and major industries, and equal distribution of the national income, would you support him and his proposed changes? Why or why not?

1968: The Gun Control Act of 1968 comes from Congressman Emanuel Celler’s House bill H.R.17735. It expands legislation already attempted by the non-Jewish Senator Thomas Dodd. America’s biggest and most far-reaching gun law came from a Jew.

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz says he disagrees with his tea party compatriot Rand Paul's foreign policy views.
The two would-be 2016 Republican presidential contenders have divided over how to best handle Russia's invasion of Crimea. Both were scheduled to appear on ABC's "This Week" to discuss foreign policy, but ABC correspondent Jon Karl said Paul backed out "at the last minute."
Hopefully this is true. Please post if you know more about this situation. This is the kind of brave action that is needed against these tyrants. Molon Labe!
"Tyler Jackson has emailed me an interesting story, soon to appear online (I'll link to it once it does)-- the gist is that the head of the Connecticut Peace Officers' Assn has released an open letter stating that the police will not "be party to the oppression of the people of the state by enforcing an unconstitutional law." So far 250 LEOs have cosigned the letter."
WASHINGTON, D.C., March 7, 2014–National Security Agency (NSA) chief executive General Keith Alexander addressed a cyber-security panel Tuesday where he proclaimed that “media leaks legislation” he introduced to prevent journalists from reporting on government surveillance programs like those leaked by Edward Snowden could reach the floor within a couple weeks.
“We’ve got to handle media leaks first,” Alexander said in report by the Guardian. “I think we are going to make headway over the next few weeks on media leaks.”
