John King of CNN says he has no opinions.

I asked John King of CNN : do you have an opinion on whether we should have gone to war with Iraq ? He said he had no opinions, then later you said he had an opinion, but he only shared it with his wife and finally, he said, we would be surprised how few opinions he has because he trains himself not to have opinions.

Gold - A Most Civilized Investment

On Friday last, Warren Buffett's right-hand man and Berkshire Hathaway's vice chairman, Charles Munger, told CNBC, "Gold is a great thing to sew into your garments if you're a Jewish family in Vienna in 1939," "but I think civilized people don't buy gold; they invest in productive businesses."

Same day Analysis of Candy Crowley's State of Union show June 3rd

I am planning to do same day analysis of the Sunday talk shows. I will critique the shows explaining what's wrong with them and occasionally what's right, why the American people cannot understand the issues as presented by the mainstream media and what they should have done instead . I will identify the solutions and principles involved.
This show June 3rd Show is a good example of what's wrong.

The Liberty Movement, the New Middle, and the End of the Beginning

Last week, Ron Paul sent an email to supporters that indicated that he doesn’t expect to have enough delegates to win the GOP nomination. Subsequently, Rand Paul has endorsed Mitt Romney.

Today, some of Ron Paul’s supporters are hurting, frustrated, demoralized.

Dinesh D'Sousa is in favor of some redistribution of wealth.

Bright conservative thinker and author Dinesh D'Sousa is in favor of some redistribution of wealth even though he thinks Government should be limited to protecting the citizens and agrees that the government is not protecting the citizens when it redistributes their wealth but he still favors some redistribtion; he favors redistribution of wealth even though he agrees it creates a perverse incentive and is morally wrong. Go figure.

Government Control and Market Intervention

It is, without doubt, possible to overlook or simply ignore those things which are not very obvious in our daily lives, it is this fact that makes many of the actions of our government possible. Actions of government in the area of economic markets, which, must include the primary economic medium of exchange: money, will always, without exception, create interference within the forces that normally function within the market.

Open Thread: Where does the Daily Paul go from here? (I'm going to China)

I know this sounds funny, but I am literally packing my bags right now for China. It is not what you think. My wife, who is a neuroscientist, is presenting a paper at the Human Brain Mapping conference in Beijing. I'm just going along for the ride ;)

I was hoping to be able to slip out the back door and take a little break from the DP for the next 10 days or so, and let the moderators run the show.

But in light of the recent news - Ron Paul's email, and now Rand endorsing Romney - I realize it is incredibly unfair to the moderators, who do such wonderful work with such a thankless task. So expect a little chaos on the site over the next couple of days. The front page might not get updated as much. A lively and spirited debate is likely to ensue. But a little chaos is good, every once in a while.

I'll Never Quit For Ron Paul

Hi friends, I have been meaning to write this for some time. Michael at the Daily Paul keeps asking me, so here it is. My name is Erik Petroni and I wanted to open up on who I am and what motivated me to create the Super Brochure...and, the NEVER QUIT story.

It started with my father. I grew up in the Canal Zone where my father was a Panama Canal Ships pilot. During the illegal giveaway of the Panama Canal by the Jimmy Carter administration, I learned the "behind the scenes" of the Rockefellers and the Federal Reserve who were behind the giveaway. A part of this was the knowledge that the world bankers needed to take the control of the Canal from the American people and put it under UN control, and they did. I was so hurt by this giveaway that I intently studied all the behind the scenes players. The book that opened my understanding was called: The Unseen Hand.

We were forced to leave the Canal Zone in 2000 and for the next 8 years I traveled the world filming and shooting campaigns and coaching my sister in surfing. She became the #1 American female surfer in 2008.

Oklahoma Convention Challenge Fund Now Active!

After the tremendous outpouring of support show nationally by supporters of the cause of Liberty, the Oklahoma Conservative Values Delegates - also known as the Parking Lot Patriots - have formed a "Legal Defense Fund". I prefer to call it the "Convention Challenge Fund". Specifically, the purpose of this fund is to pay for the attorneys involved and offset travel and lodging expenses of those making the complaint. A website - - has been set up to coordinate fundraising and share information, including Rules, laws, and evidence.

Pamphleteers of the Revolution

What do we mean by the Revolution? The War? That was no part of the Revolution; it was only an effect and a consequence of it. The Revolution was in the minds of the people, and this was effected, from 1760 to 1775, in the course of fifteen years before a drop of blood was shed at Lexington. The records of thirteen legislatures, the pamphlets, newspapers in all the colonies, ought to be consulted during that period to ascertain the steps by which the public opinion was enlightened and informed concerning the authority of Parliament over the colonies. John Adams to Jefferson, 1815

UPDATE: WIN in CA! Bloated Bureaucracy is No Life Raft for California’s Sinking Ship

The so-called California Cancer Research Act up for a vote is a misnomer. According to the measure, funds collected from California taxpayers are allowed to be spent researching elsewhere, including other countries. In an already bankrupt state, the $735 million projected to be raised yearly by this new tax will not help balance the budget or do a thing to pay down the $10 billion deficit.

Watch Out for the Hole!

Autobiography in Five Short Chapters,
by Portia Nelson.

From her book, There's a Hole in My Sidewalk: The Romance of Self-Discovery. Spotted on p.32 of the The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying

Chapter One

I walk down the street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I fall in.
I am lost. . .
I am helpless.
It is not my fault.
It takes forever to find my way out.

Chapter Two

I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I pretend I don’t see it.
I fall in.
I can’t believe I am in the same place.
But it isn’t my fault.
It still takes a long time to get out.

Chapter Three

I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I see it there.
I still fall in . . . It’s a habit.
My eyes are open.
I know where I am.
It is my fault.
I get out immediately.

Chapter Four

I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I walk around it.

Chapter Five

I walk down another street.
