Maybe I just don' t get it. About 2,500 people in Africa, the second largest continent, have been infected with Ebola and everyone is panicking? That doesn't really sound like a plague of Biblical proportions to me. Is this another case of multitudes seeing what the fear mongers want them to see? Hmmmm.
I received an email (below)made to look as if it was from C4L that had "Congressman Ron Paul" logo at the top (he's no longer in congress!), and website "chooseliberty.org" is an error page.
Disgusting if this is a scam. Can anyone verify one way or another?

What do you want to see happen? In the short term AND the long run. What do you want to see happen?
If it is that more people wake up, what will that look like?
Do you want to see a change in the way people are "represented" in DC? Even if you do not consider the state legitimate, what way do you want to see government lose its legitimacy?
If it is to change minds, what is going to happen once peoples minds are changed?
What will success look like to you? When will you have achieved your goal? Why is your goal what it is?
So I have been given an offer of $90k for an acre of land, cash. After everything is settled with this deal, also including unrelated low-interest debts, I estimate I will have about $80k left over
Is it a good idea to sell in this climate?
And, where else, investment-wise ,would one find decent to excellent returns?
Can anything be justified? Does an individual have an excuse to do whatever he/she wants even if it is contrary to another person's worldview? What are your thoughts on this subject matter?
Are we losing the discussion regarding non-intervention?
Even if every person around me could not be any longer persuaded to see the detriment and dis-ease intervention has caused and will continue to cause into the future, I would remain vigilant in my stance against it.

I'm feeling pretty good about the amount of precious metals and emergency supplies that I have bought in the past couple years. I'm thinking that now may be a great time to buy some mining stock to add some diversity to my portfolio.
During the last crash mining stocks went through the roof and I anticipate a similar crash eventually. Does anyone have mining stocks that they own or would recommend? Why? Thank you!
"The direct warnings to Mr. Bush about the possibility of a Qaeda attack began in the spring of 2001. By May 1, the Central Intelligence Agency told the White House of a report that “a group presently in the United States” was planning a terrorist operation. Weeks later, on June 22, the daily brief reported that Qaeda strikes could be “imminent,” although intelligence suggested the time frame was flexible."
I was curious about this show because the role of Secretary of State sounds pretty interesting if a person was ethical and competent. Of course, the preview played up the idea that this person had real intelligence and skill.
The main character is a former CIA Analyst. After watching this I Googled Madam Secretary vs Hillary Clinton. Most of what I found was something about the show being based off of Hillary Clinton. I thought watching the show gave me exactly the opposite idea that the show was a direct contrast to Hillary-The-Lawyer's stint as Secretary of State.
[Please don't attack me...with words or negative votes. I'm posting on behalf of several people too afraid to do so; and for many others who no longer come here. I'll try to be very brief.]
1. Has anyone here personally been to the Dome of the Rock?
2. Were you fearful for your safety going through the outer brick wall security when questioned by armed soldiers who didn't understand English (or 'your' language?)
3. In the decade you visited, did you feel like you were in the middle of a war zone? And could be hurt/shot at any time? Mostly by accident by the many armed soldiers leisurely? standing and talking all around you, everywhere?
4. Do you think possession/control of the rock is a big reason for the on-going fighting in the area - world-wide? And most people don't realize it? And this has been going on for thousands of years? (I need help with my words.)(a documentary seemed to state this and it seems somewhat true when seeing the fighting amongst the locals, the governments, posters on different forums, and the DP.)
Thank you for your input and knowledge. I tried very hard to use non-descript words so as not to cause additional fighting or attacks.
Where is our "best friend" in the Middle East when America needs all the help we can get? Israel should be the first to sign up to "degrade and destroy" the Terrorist if they really are a world threat, as we've been told and retold and ... Doesn't the US seek to dominate the ME to secure the "Holy Land" for Israel? Seems like Israel should have a dog in this fight too.
When I was 15 I started on this whole Libertarian / Ron Paul kick. I am now 10 years deep.
It all began with me questioning my conservative dad on abortion. I still don’t know exactly where I stand on abortion. Which leads me to ask this community, and I hope I can get some serious though out responses, what is the libertarian argument for gambling. Obviously the argument will be made that it is a moral issue, and government should not legislate morality, in that it creates a criminal class. I get it. SO this is the real crux.
Here I am, halfway through trying out the Oaties recipe from the Ron Paul Family Cookbook of 2014, page 3, and part of it is missing from the publication.
The only thing I found by searching was a complaint on Amazon about it. Does anybody have the missing instructions? It's too late for me on this batch, but I'd sure like to know.
thought this was really interesting.
