You won't kill the guy that makes the cell phones

How many times have I heard the herd sentiment - "Society would break down if not for the State"? Too many times. As Thomas Paine said in his famous pamphlet Common Sense - which convinced George Washington, Ben Franklin, and the other so-called "Founders" to accept Colonial separation from Britain rather than settle for taxation with representation:

Who is Andre Watts?

For those here at the Daily Paul who have an astute interest in the Baroque/Classical/Romantic eras of music, I thought it would make for a good thread to post information either about your/one of your favorite concert musicians or composers and a link or two or three to some pieces containing their performance or involvement.

The Paul doctors: One helped birth the modern liberty movement, the other is now attempting to give it vision.

Here in Paulistan it behooves us to contemplate the nature of where we have come from and to where we are heading.

When Dr. Ron Paul, an OBGYN, helped deliver the birth of a modern liberty renaissance (yes it's a work in progress) he did so in the same manner as his trade of choice. Having helped thousands through the most painful experience of giving birth he was quite familiar with what it took to keep people optimistic during their darkest times.

What Are Your Fondest Memories?

Lately I have been contemplating this question and a few of the many that I cherish are:

Sitting outside as a child with my family talking, laughing and listening to the crickets chirping in the background.

The smell of grass on a freshly groomed lawn and chatting with my neighbors about the weather.

When my husband and I have a conversation and he is really listening to me.

Going to lunch with friends.

My sons when they smile.

Reading a book with one of my quilts over my lap and my dogs Mable and Waldo sitting with me keeping me warm. (Seems I am always cold.)

Anarcho Ad Absurdum

Some fun with NAP and it's favored theory of property.

The absurdity lies in the property theory and not in the idea of non aggression. The idea of non aggression is common to pretty much all legal-ethical systems, it is simply a question of which system of property rights defined whether aggression occurs.

In this system, property is:

1) obtained only by title transfer, or
2) homesteading - with no limits on how much you can grab that aren't arbitrary
3) absolute, inalienable
4) defensible with any force
5) one's domain where one can commit any acts whatsoever

Blowback is not just for Muslims

This is going to be an uncomfortable and controversial post, but I feel it needs to be said and is very important for libertarians to understand what some of the present day trends forbode.

Have a drink and try to understand where I'm coming from.

My A child...

I guess I've always recognized your talents, your specialties and your prodigious ways. I suppose at some point in your early years I chose to love you as a unique and brilliant jewel, refusing to question the splays of light your personality emitted. These several years later I find myself in a different place. I remember your wizardry at putting together 50 piece puzzles at age 3, your current and ever growing capacity for words and numbers, which finds you reading at levels several grades above your age.

Elderly Woman

Elderly Woman

One Sunday, in counting the money in the weekly offering, the pastor of a small church found a pink envelope containing $1,000.It happened again the next week!
The following Sunday, he watched as the offering was collected and saw an elderly woman put the distinctive pink envelope on the plate. This went on for weeks until the pastor, overcome by curiosity, approached her..
"Ma'am, I couldn't help but notice that you put $1,000 a week in the collection plate," he stated.
"Why, yes," she replied, "every week my son sends me money, and I give some of it to the church"

The value of literature for the political student

Go to a library or search the internet, you will find endless theories about ethics and politics clamoring for a place in your limited mental space. Endless ideologies on offer filling dusty volumes and repetitive blogs. Great doctrines that can fill the young and old alike with enthusiasm, and fill that void in our hearts for purpose, mission and simplistic truths.

Mark Manier, Ron Paul Republican Running For State Rep In Michigan, Launches Website

My name is Mark Manier. I am running for Michigan House of Representatives in district 27. I recently launched my website, Facebook, and Twitter accounts. I have never built a website before, but I think I could have done worse! Please take the time to visit my website. I would really appreciate any feedback about the design, the delivery of my message, or if you happen to notice any spelling or grammar errors. My parents think I was a little too hard on my opponents. Do you? And let me know if you have any questions about my campaign or my political beliefs. Thank you!!!

Why I closed the Ark Door (Part 1)

Back at the end of January, I made a somewhat cryptic (to some) post titled The Ark Door is Closed. And we've set sail.

How this little website came to be known as an "Ark" (and in later variations, an "Arc") is a story for another time. But the meaning of the post was that I closed the Daily Paul to new registrations.

I knew that if I didn't, I was going to end up wasting my time playing "Whack-a-Mole" with trolls for the rest of my life:

Nystrom, playing whack-a-troll

But there would be no glorious end for me, like the guy in the video. It would just go on, and on, and on. And on. Forever, until I died.
