Liberty representatives...Where are they concerning Cliven Bundy?

What Cliven Bundy and his family are going through with the BLM is definitely a HUGE liberty issue, a tyranny vs. freedom issue. Where is Rand Paul, Justin Amash, Thomas Massie et et in the media denouncing what the BLM is doing and how it could most definitely lead to bloodshed?

Hell, Rand wrote a book titled "Government Bullies"!!!!

Where are these guys?! This kind of issue is EXACTLY the kind of issue these guys should be speaking out loudly about.

Where are they?!

Medical Debt

Yesterday I got a fun letter in the mail regarding some medical debt that I carry. It was from the Kentucky Revenue Service. It appears now that medical debt no longer goes to a collection agency, but rather gets sent to the IRS here and then they strong arm you to pay or face high interest rates or fines. They have already added $180 on a $435 bill in interest and fees and if I don't pay in the next 5 days it will go up even further.

Congressman Thomas Massie (Republican–KY), Congresswoman Chellie Pingree (Democrat –ME) and a bipartisan coalition of 18 other lawmakers have introduced legislation to improve consumer food choices, including access to raw milk, and to protect local farmers from federal interference.

One of the reasons for the war on Cannabis is hidden in plain sight

In 1893, Rudolf Diesel published a paper called: The Theory and Construction of a Rational Heat Engine. In it, he clearly indicates locally grown seed oils as the primary fuel source for his unique, long lasting engine. (He later demonstrated this at the 1900 Worlds Fair in Paris when he ran his engine on a concoction made primarily of peanut oil) Originally intended for the operation of large machinery at remote farms and in factories, the potential was huge. Mechanized transportation was still in its infancy and at the time, limited to animals, ships and trains.

FRANKFORT, March 13, 2014– Kentucky lawmakers are moving to change state law, which could prohibit a federal candidate from appearing on the same ballot twice in a general election. Primary elections appear to be excluded from the current state law, so much ambiguity has surrounded US Senator Rand Paul’s (R) options.

Senate committee approves bill to let Rand Paul run for re-election and president in 2016

A revised bill that would allow U.S. Sen. Rand Paul to run for re-election and the presidency on the same Kentucky ballot in 2016 was cleared by a state Senate committee Wednesday, picking up one Democratic vote along the way.

State Sen. Morgan McGarvey, D-Louisville, joined Republicans on the Senate State and Local Government Committee in voting to send the proposal to the full Senate after it was changed to specify that the bill applies only to candidates running for president or vice president of the United States.

Rand - Socon?

Received this in an email from Rand Paul rand.paul @ as far as I am concerned, this puts him in the same category was Cruz or Santorum. If he runs for Pres in 16, I really can't see myself pulling the lever for him...
