Daily Paul – Canadian Edition

Anyone?

I’ve been thinking about this for a while. I’ve noticed that there are quite a few fellow Canadians on this site. I think it would be great to have a Canadian Edition of the Daily Paul for us to discuss Canadian issues. We also need this type of forum to help debunk all the Canadian MSM/government/corporate BS.

I have no idea how to do it, but man I'd love to see it!

In Need Of A Little Economic Stimulus?

How about this?

All interest payments on all personal bank loans (mortgages, business loans, student loans, car loans, home equity lines of credit, personal lines of credit, credit card debt, etc.) should be immediately and retroactively applied to the principle. Any overpayment should also be returned immediately.

Since the money for these loans was illegitimately created in the first place, the banks have absolutely no right to charge anyone interest for using that money.

Is Mike Rogers everything that's wrong with America?

He's a former FBI agent who is pathetically subservient to the National Security state, a leading advocate of corporate welfare, paragon of soft corruption (his wife works for a defense-intelligence contractor), and general A-hole.

The liberty movement should directly target him for defeat in the next election both for the direct benefit of removing a fascist from power and the obvious symbolic importance.

Ron Paul 2016, More Voices!

Yep, i am calling it. first and foremost. I hope Ron Paul runs again. It would bring another voice of reason and common sense to the gop primary debate stage. The benefits outway any negatives. It would give us an extra voice in the debates and motivate more folks to be involved in the liberty revolution inside the gop and outside of it.

Ron Paul 2008, hell ya
Ron Paul 2012, naysayers said it would not happen.
Ron Paul 2016, it will never happen. NEVER SAY NEVER

RON PAUL 2016 ,More Voices on the STAGE!!!!! NEVER SAY NEVER,

An idea re: name calling & lewd comments :)

I love to read DP posts. I also love to read DP comments for individual perspective on those posts. However, I waste plenty of time reading posts in which the author decides for one reason or another to call another poster a name or make lewd comments referring to others to whom they don't agree. The current system of +/- votes does not address this problem (I find that I often want to read posts with high - counts ---at least those that do not include verbal abuse.) I suspect others here share my frustration.

My solution:

Ruin by Ridicule

Has it occurred to anyone here how much power we give to petty tyrants? In news story after news story, post after post I see impotent frustration and angry fear. Yet the thing no government can survive is ridicule. Not one shred of power remains to anyone who is made a laughing-stock.
There was a great photo circulating during the last election cycle. Actually there were two photos in juxtaposition. One of Ronald Reagan on horseback taking a formidable jump, the other of a guy wearing a cyclist's helmet and riding a girl's bicycle. Hilarious!

The Greatest Error in the Constitution

The Constitution failed, because it contains no provision of punishment for sponsoring or voting for unconstitutional laws, so Congress can pass more criminal laws than the public has the resources to fight. At this point, there is to be found no salvation in the Supreme Court, because the justices are surveilled by the executive branch. There should be a national campaign to add a punishment provision to each state's constitution for that and incidentally color the national dialog of the elections. Politicians who want illegal laws should have the fear of God stopping them before they act.

Racism Talking Points

Just some thoughts on PR.

Not that this is any great newsflash, but as the stakes get higher going into 2014 and 2016, a key liberal/neocon attack strategy is going to be to equate all liberty-oriented movements with the KKK.

They hit Ron Paul with the newsletters, the racism smear was obviously the principle strategy against the Tea Party (when it meant something), and now we're seeing Rand getting tarred with the racism brush.

I don't think the proper response is to play defense. This makes liberty people look weak and conflicted--like we actually are harboring some dirty secret.

Proposal: Give most every American $50,000 in 2014

Proposal:   The US government should issue a check for $50,000 to every American making an annual income of $500,000 or less next year.  

Would this be a bad thing resulting in any harm?

What would be the harm?

Would it not be consistent with Keynesian theory?  If we need liquidity why not inject it straight to the people?  Why give it to the banks and Wall Street first?  What is the government's and/or Fed's answer to this question?   

This cash would allow most American to pay off debt, improve their homes, start a business, go on vacation, eat for a year...

Can "We the People" Try To Add An Amendment To The U.S. Constitution ?

Since every elected official all across the USA has taken an oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution when being sworn into their elected office or position, and since the U.S. Constitution is the "SUPREME" Law of the land:
Constitutional Article VI {6} paragraphs 2 and 3:
{Quote} " This Constitution and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; etc. etc.
Shall be the supreme Law of the Land, etc. etc.

The proposed Constitutional Amendment should be phrased something like this:

Idea for poster (NSA-related)

I have an idea for a poster or flyer but I'm not very artistically inclined nor do I know my way around any graphics applications.

It's easy to explain, though.

You all know how the "Uncle Sam Wants You" painting is one of those paintings that follows you know matter where you're standing when looking at it? Just change the words to "Is Watching You" and it works on two levels.

1) It says Uncle Sam is watching you, which they are.
2) The painting actually watches you from all directions; i.e. there's nowhere to hide.

Anyway ... thought that'd be cool.
