We are starting a signature campaign this weekend to support our idea of taking traffic camera revenue and using that revenue to pay for childhood cancer research and treatments in the state of Iowa.
I know it's unlikely to succeed, but I want to showcase two things, one how much money is at stake. Two to show to individuals that the cameras are not about safety at all, just revenue generation for the municipalities.
What’s going on with all the Ron Paulers? I hear they are discouraged. I hear they are upset. Where have they gone, and why aren’t they joining the Libertarian Party?
My name is Joe Kent, and I was the Ron Paul National Delegate for Maui County in 2012, so if there’s anyone who should be discouraged, it’s me. The stunts they tried to pull! The trickery, and defeat. It’s enough to make anyone want to get out of politics for a while. Indeed, when I got back to Maui, I wanted nothing to do with politics, the Republican Party, and especially television.
A Dr. Paul supporter named Daniel S. Thompson has sculpted a beautiful rendition of him. He is in the process of raising the funds to have it cast in bronze and delivered to Dr. Paul along with a book containing all of names of people who donated to this cause. Please review the following links for more information and consider supporting this wonderful tribute to a man who has given so much of himself to the cause of liberty. Thank you!
We get 2-4 web developers together and create a site that offers everything people want. This crowd-driven and managed site gathers both opinion and facts with self verification steps along the way. It ranks both against the crowd's weighted values and then displays the info in virtually any format to any medium desired. It can be used globally, locally or privately and assigns precedence and dependence links to all items.
Please chip in $100, $50, or whatever you can to support Mark Mezzina, a liberty candidate for School Committee in North Andover, MA.
Remember that while local office may not seem particularly important, these people are the farm team that will be seeking higher office a few years down the road. We need your help to build the movement!
I'd like to call your attention to the project to create a bronze bust of Dr. Paul, which will be presented to him on behalf of project participants. There's a limited time to make sure this project gets off the ground, and you can help, if only by sharing this kickstarter page with your friends and associates. This is also an opportunity to see these bronze busts placed in public buildings: libraries, schools, and universities. Please take a look:
About a year ago I started a blog at wordpress.com. Two weeks ago I had a link to it in my signature, and was surprised to see how many people from other countries clicked through to it:
United States 317
Republic of Korea 4
Russian Federation 1
Czech Republic Republic 1
South Africa 1
United Kingdom 1
And replies came in from all over when I posted this:
Semantic = Relating to meaning in language or logic.
Newspeak = Ambiguous euphemistic language used chiefly in political propaganda.
Doublethink = Thought marked by the acceptance of gross contradictions and falsehoods, especially when used as a technique of self-indoctrination.
Colbert's interview with Frank Luntz is a good example of political doublespeak in a light hearted way..

If you live in Connecticut, Indiana, New Mexico or Wisconsin, please help out on efforts for Audit the Fed.
Democratic Senators in these four states voted for Ron's Audit the Fed bill as members of the House in 2012.
Now that they are Senators, we need to get them to cosponsor Rand's Senate bill to build Democratic support (there was only one Democratic cosponsor in the last Congress).
The Senate bill, S. 209, is the exact same bill they voted for in the House last year.
I'd like to welcome everyone to the Tax Free City Project at http://taxfreesociety.com
I have several free downloads including an e-book on starting a Tax Free City, and a slideshow on arete. Some of my stuff might be offensive, but it's satire to make people think.
The Iowa GOP, now firmly in the hands of good Ron Paulians, wants to sponsor a liberty education tour around the state. They want me to keynote every event. It will give regular Iowans, many of whom have received their political education from neoconservative radio (as I myself once did), some exposure to the genuine liberty message.
Need hardcore webmaster for joint venture, paid hourly work. We envision a news portal with a realist but edgy outlook. Think DP + RT + LRC w/some Activist Post + Rawstory, with a Rothbardian slant. Several linked blogs on current topics, affiliate agreements. We have content, templates and can produce plenty of original, plus eagerness to reciprocate with such as DP, Oathkeepers, Tenth Amendment Committee, RLC, EFF, How to Vanish, hard money newsletters, self-reliance tech, etc.
