We ran Civil Asset Forfeiture out of Utah

Don't ever let any apathetic liberty lover tell you that fighting the system is pointless. Here is Utah I worked with the Libertas Institute to completely drive asset forfeiture out of my state. It is the ONLY state that completely restricts this practice. Looking for somewhere free? We also can use gold as money here.

The rest of the article is here. Never give up the fight! Peace.

A Man Coming Over The Hill, Singing – Dave Weigel on Rand Paul's trip to South Carolina

In the Carolinas, Rand Paul confronts a new war in the Middle East — and the voters who rejected his father.

by David Weigel
Oct 11, 2014 7:05 AM EDT

Rand Paul usually starts with a joke; it relieves the tension that’s never there. On Tuesday, Sept. 30, the junior Senator from Kentucky is running a little late, but a University of South Carolina lecture room is already overfull, stragglers fighting for space behind a row of TV cameras. A few college Democrats are in the room, but as listeners, not hecklers.

Gwyneth Paltrow Celebrity Event Sullies Presidency - TMZ

The idiocy of Hollywood was in full bloom Thursday night when Gwyneth Paltrow turned an already-embarrassing Hollywood fundraiser into "The Dating Game."

Paltrow -- who hosted the event at her Brentwood home -- gushed as she introduced President Obama, "You're so handsome that I can't speak properly."

She then showed utter ignorance about, and contempt for, the Constitution and separation of powers -- the basic tenets of our government -- by saying, "It would be wonderful if we were able to give this man all of the power that he needs to pass the things that he needs to pass."

Do you think third party candidates should be included in debates?

DP,

I know quite a few in the community refuse to have Facebook accounts, but I came across this poll/question posted by Lex 18 (Lexington, Ky News Station) this morning in my news feed:

https://www.facebook.com/lex18/posts/10152806294388447?comme...

Simple question regarding the Kentucky Senate Race- Do you think third party candidates should be included in debates? The comment section is essentially 100% for inclusion of David Patterson, our Libertarian Candidate for Senate here in Ky.

I just figured I'd share this with you all. I know it's difficult to remain optimistic at times, but this definitely put a smile on my face.

This is also my first post, so take it easy on me!

John Whitehead:Resistance is not futile. (A How-to Article)

“Let your motto be resistance! resistance! Resistance! No oppressed people have ever secured their liberty without resistance.”—Abolitionist Henry Highland Garnet

Whitehead discusses some cases that proved the police sometimes are not there to serve or protect anyone, just to defend their own power. They have become militarized, and the 'enemy -combatant' status of the citizen has become de-facto, though not de-jure.

Knowing your basic rights is essential in resisting unjust police action, but not sufficient: for what is....

US military begins constructing clinics surrounded by razor wire to house dying Ebola victims

What construction plan do you think they took "off the self"? They are called O-Plans for short (Operational Plans) and can be taken off the self at a moments notice for any contingency.

The military doesn't just show up, look around for a while and then start brain storming about what kind of camp would work best. They already have O-Plans to execute and real world experience helps refine the plans constantly.
