Between the sequester and the suspension of non-essential government services, Congress is taking very positive steps in shrinking the size of government and reducing government spending.
If it is an accident, thank god for useful idiots!
If it is on purpose, lets encourage them.
New rally cry for you all to try on - "Shut Down More!!!"
It is better to have government do nothing, than to have government do the wrong thing.
I'm concerned about the trucker rally in DC in October. FEMA is preparing big-time for -- earthquake devastation?? -- in that area. Everything had to be ready to go for October. Could it be because so many truckers plan to be in one place at one time that this earthquake has been scheduled?
Truckers, please do not congregate in DC in October, or anywhere else in large numbers, any other time. I know this link was posted a while ago, but not much is being said about it. There could be tsunamis.
I have a dream that millions would rise up and say, 'You cannot force health insurance on someone's life, this is not the rule of law, it is tyranny in disguise!'
These scare tactics are not working on me. I'm sure the rest of you here feel the same way. What can we do, as "We The People" to activate now and take this thing back? Let the rEVOLution begin now. Then I think, is this what they want? Do they want to see if we are compliant? ....All of these questions, but all of this opportunity was just begging me to post this here today. I'm not sure I've ever posted before, but used to be an avid chatter.
So I've been reading posts that Manystrom has been commenting in and it's made me quite nostalgic for the early days of The DP. I think one of the most exciting things about the early days was when one of us would come up with an idea to "do" something to promote Dr. Paul and we would all just run with it. Sign waves, Money bombs, Audience mobs....ect.
Perhaps we've lost touch with our collective energy..lost touch with the fact that we are a force to be reckoned with. I don't know, but I'm willing to bet that some of us want to be active.
I have been thinking about this shirt idea that I keep going back on and thinking of.
Its a pretty simple shirt that would have a list of screwed up things the government has done like:
- Patriot Act
- UN Arms treaty
And any others you can list (there are plenty)
and then there would be a picture of people throwing tea boxes into a harbor and words that read "People have revolted over less"
If you want can makes this into a shirt or know someone who can go for it. All I ask is the chance to buy one from you.
If I run a company and for Christmas I buy all of my employees their very own LLC corporate identity and then, fire them all, and then bring them back on board thru a fixed-price contract with their new corporate entity, am I no longer obligated to pay minimum wage.
Put another way - if all of my workers are contracted-for CEOs, then I can pay them whatever they accept in the contract, correct?
Seems like people love him, distrust him or have no idea what he really stands for.
Perhaps Ben Swann could do an interview. Get a feel for his stand on certain issues.
Or, perhaps, get Cruz to do a DP question and answer session.
If he's a good dude, we should get behind him.
If he's not on the up-and-up, then his astro turfers are wasting their time pumping him.
Ok, so most of the unconstitutional, liberty destroying, big government bills have passed, because of their names. Examples of this include Civil Rights Act, Americans With Disabilities Act, USA Patriot Act, and Violence Against Women Act.
It's funny, because most of the bill titles have nothing to do with what is in the bill.
So, why don't people like Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, and Justin Amash play the game and give their bills legitimate names? Our senators and representatives would have to vote for them, otherwise their political careers would be damaged!
I come to the Daily Paul for, as close to one stop shopping as I can get.
I tried posting this link in the mod suggestion box. To be honest that's where this post probably belongs. Even still, I firmly believe in the potential power of this idea, and I would like to have DPer's weigh in on it. Maybe Maybe if enough people weigh in, Jon and the boys might be willing to put forth the effort.
Matt Bevin will primary Mitch McConnell for U.S. Senate in 2014. I know that Matt has been raised here on the forum before, but this thread is to fully vet him. Matt appears to be Liberty, but I am asking Daily Paul members to provide any additional insight that you could offer.
Also, if you are aware of any other Liberty candidate(s) who is planning to primary McConnell and deserves recognition/vetting, please list.
Liberty Kids is a cartoon that teaches kids about our founding principles, our system of government (in theory, right?), and other issues. I just discovered it and so far it seems pretty good.
I have been following two State House races in Central Texas very closely this year, HD10, and HD58. both had RINO incumbents and Liberty Republican challengers... until August 22nd.
That was the day the news broke that Jim Pitts (Rino, District 10)
was "retiring" making T.J Fabby (Liberty Candidate, District 10) the front runner.
Fast forward to yesterday, when Rob Orr (Rino District 58) announced he is "retiring" as well! Making Liberty delegate Philip Eby the default front runner!
