Is Violence An Option?
"[...] libertarians also tend to believe strongly in the right to self-defense, and do not preclude the use of violent action entirely. Since the focus is on non-aggression, as opposed to non-violence, one would be morally justified in disarming an attacker, even if it meant injuring or killing them in the process.
This is where many questions arise. What should be considered 'aggression,' and is a forceful response appropriate?"
Here's links to several Rand Paul polls, I know they don't elect people but they can spark an interest in a candidate from someone who is uniformed.
NEWTOWN, CT: "It's Not A Surprise To Me That A Court Has In Fact Sealed The Records Just Because It's So Horrible."Submitted by GroverCleveland2012 on Thu, 03/14/2013 - 22:44
In an unusual broadside against Connecticut police and CT state prosecutors, the world's leading news service, the Associated Press (AP,) has criticized the denial of its Freedom of Information Act requests regarding the Sandy Hook shooting.
The AP said last week:
"Newtown police denied requests by The Associated Press for 911 calls and any police reports involving Lanza or his family. State police also declined to release records, citing the pending investigation."
WASHINGTON (AP) -- A record number of U.S. counties - more than 1 in 3 - are now dying off, hit by an aging population and weakened local economies that are spurring young adults to seek jobs and build families elsewhere.
New 2012 census estimates released Thursday highlight the population shifts as the U.S. encounters its most sluggish growth levels since the Great Depression.
Does anyone have any thoughts on this?
There's a poll at the beginning. Please vote Rand over Marco.
Politico: It’s not hard to make fun of CPAC. From the presence of Donald Trump to a meaningless straw poll to a cavalcade of fringe-dwelling book merchants, the event has become more carnival than conservative salon.
What is more notable about this year’s rendition of the annual confab, which begins outside Washington on Thursday, is not the easy caricature but how thoroughly the Conservative Political Action Conference reflects the state of the Republican Party four months after yet another humbling presidential defeat. It is a muddle, but a muddle with meaning.
Establishment Republicans are angry that popular GOP governors Chris Christie and Bob McDonnell are being snubbed, but conservatives, seeing Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush invited, are moaning that a traditional movement event has been annexed by the country club crowd.
Santorum Objects to Rand Paul’s ‘Isolationist Policies’
Talking Points Memo
Count Rick Santorum among the Republicans who will not "stand with Rand."
The former Pennsylvania senator and 2012 GOP presidential candidate said Tuesday he disagrees with the approach to national security advocated by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), who staged an epic 13-hour filibuster last week in protest of John Brennan's nomination to lead the CIA.
Rubio vs. Rand
There’s a war waging within the Republican Party, and even the most casual observers are starting to notice. Its outcome will determine the foreign policy of the GOP and, if they’re lucky, the country.
They took over the entire leadership apparatus of Republican Party of Iowa and its State Central Committee, but former Ron Paul backers are finding victories much more difficult to attain in GOP county central committees. “Liberty” candidates were defeated on Tuesday night in chairman races for two of the state’s most significant county parties: Polk and Scott.

Officers opened fire on the newspaper delivery women, piercing their pickup truck with more than 100 bullet holes.
By Hetty Chang | NBC Los Angeles | Mar 13, 2013
The two newspaper delivery women who were shot at during the manhunt for Christopher Dorner will not be getting a new replacement truck as promised by the LAPD, according to their attorney Glen Jonas.
It has been more than a month since LAPD Chief Charlie Beck promised the truck to Emma Hernandez, 71, and her daughter, Margie Carranza, who had been working in Torrance, Calif. before dawn on Feb. 7.
Police said it was a "case of mistaken identity" that prompted officers to open fire on the women. Beck later apologized and promised to replace their truck, now riddled with bullet holes.
