There are a lot of good races for the libertarian/constitutionalist in 2014. But this is 2013! What can I do for the cause of liberty with say fifty bucks!
Let me say first, the local constitutionalist running this year with a solid chance to either win or influence the debate is the best bang for your buck. But what about the three big races? Governor of New Jersey, Mayor of New York, and Governor of Virginia.

More than ever, Walter Wink believes, the Christian tradition of nonviolence is needed as an alternative to the dominant and death-dealing "powers" of our consumerist culture and fractured world. In this small book Wink offers a precis of his whole thinking about this issue, including the relation of Jesus and his message to politics and nonviolence, the history of nonviolent efforts, and how nonviolence can win the day when others don't hesitate to resort to violence or terror to achieve their aims.
There are some things in life that we know for certain are crimes. We also know that, when informed, we feel compelled to do something in order to cease the crime from being prolonged or perpetuated. That something usually comes in the form of chatting with friends and family, engaging with the community on the issues, or expressing discontent with laws and policies. In any case it is the behavior that needs correction. Some crimes committed against us are very apparent. Others are not so much.
Ever seen those Ron Paul Star Wars pictures? I thought we could expand on the idea. So either R2-D2 or C-3PO could be R3V0 (that's what gave me the idea even before I had seen other RP Star Wars stuff). We could have characters like Darth Cheney, and...what are your ideas?
So we know now for sure (as if we didn't before) that the "government" is keeping tabs on all of us so how about we start a huge campaign to each make freedom of information act requests for whatever data they have on us. This would put a huge strain on the system and there may even be some very important data on us we don't even know about. I think its worth a try. If someone were to post a FOIA request here that we can modify and submit to the NSA, we can grab it, fill in the blanks, and send it off. This could be very interesting...
Private property entitles its owner to discriminate: to exclude or include others from his property and to determine the conditions of entry and inclusion.
Both inclusion and exclusion have associated costs and benefits for the owner, which he weighs against each other when he makes his decision.
In any case, the owner’s decision is motivated by his concern for his property and by reason. His reasoning may turn out correct and he reaches his goal or it may turn out wrong, but in any case, the owner’s is a reasoned decision.
It occurred to me that the Daily Paul struggles with these very issues.
Nothing we do online is private. How can we do anything about it?
If our representatives aren't going to help us invoke our 4th amendment protections, we need to get serious about finding ways to do it ourselves.
I have Keynesian friend, he studied economics in Holland. And he firmly believes that government is needed to keep stability by interfering in economics, and provide the needed services that couldn't be provided by private business. He also believes that most people couldn't take care of themselves and that government is needed to protect the them.
So I decided to make a bet with him:
If he proves to me that government can produce any service/commodity cheaper than any individual/private business, I'll give him 38.24 $(100 LTL).
Do I stand a chance? :D
What happened to RP in Maine must never happen to anyone ever again. If our votes are meaningless then all hope for our government is lost.
In order to reduce fraud in voting affairs, I propose an online system should be set up, whereby:
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!
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.
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.
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.

We got 217 "No's" on the Amash Amendment. Let's go to each of their Facebook pages and let them know how we feel, and let their supporters see their treasonous act.
Here is the list:
