Rep. Fleming: Libertarians Are Wrong About Legal Pot

“My libertarian friends suggest to us the old motorcycle helmet argument,” Rep. John Fleming, R-La., said, referencing the argument that the government has no business regulating the personal choices of individuals.

Fleming countered with his opinion that “we as taxpayers have a vested interest in what society does.”

Rand Paul's Liberty Agenda Applauded at GOP Unity Rally to Defeat Landrieu

Rand Paul was the "rockstar libertarian headliner" at a GOP unity rally in Baton Rouge, LA on Monday, according to the American Spectator, and his liberty message was very well-received by the "establishment" Republicans in attendance.

...many of the state’s most prominent GOP politicians were gathered to show solidarity with Senate hopeful Bill Cassidy — who earned 41 percent of the vote in last week’s election, forcing Democratic incumbent Mary Landrieu (42 percent) into a runoff. [...]

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, the libertarian rock star who headlined the affair, gave an exposition of his “liberty agenda,” which was met with enthusiastic applause from a crowd full of old-school Republican activists. Paul said he had stayed out of the race thus far because he couldn’t choose between Maness and Cassidy—but that he has faith in the GOP’s standard bearer going into the runoff. “I believe Bill Cassidy will defend the Constitution,” he said.

Another murder by cop

LAFAYETTE La. (Reuters) - For six months, Catherine Cortez believed that her 30-year-old son, who died in March after a scuffle with police in Louisiana, had succumbed to brain damage from chronic cocaine use.

Earlier this month, she was horrified to learn from an 11-page state forensic pathologist's report that Robert Minjarez Jr.'s death was instead a police-caused homicide by suffocation, Cortez said on Wednesday.

Please Take Part in my Rand Paul Poll!

We all know Rand isn't Ron. There are several things we as Libertarians take issue with that Rand advocates. Support for Israel, limited military action, endorsement of Mitt Romney (ouch). Whatever, you get the idea.

Yes, he's cozied up to Cory Booker, Mitch McConnel, and some other folks that we on the DP wouldn't necessarily like to rub shoulders with.

HOWEVER, IF the election were today and you had to vote, would YOU vote for him? Let's assume for argument's sake that Rand is the Republican candidate going up against a Democrat.

Funny thing happened on the way to the Daily Paul!

Came home this evening prepared to start the Andouille making this weekend. Made some two weeks ago and sold all of it for $8.00 per pound. All of my BMW motorcyclist customers wanted more. Lol!

Now to the interesting part! When I Google'd Ghost Pepper Andouille what came up first of all was the Daily Paul. Damn, Guess I am the first to come up with this combination.

I must tell you that I have come up with the first combination of seasonings to make a good ghost pepper Andouille. Not too hot. Makes the nose run but doesn't make you sweat. The smokey flavor of the peppers along with the hickory or especially the Pecan smoke makes this especially enjoyable.

Just wanted to let you all know that I found this search to be most gratifying.

Border Problem vs False Flag Probability!

Besides myself how many here have been counting the days that the three letter agencies could be supplying/helping entities bring a serious false flag operation into the country. Seems to be a extra good way to build the complacency.

What better way could they go ahead and finish the Constitution completely? Just wondering!

My partner (72 years young) died yesterday and I didn't really know where to post this but

it is business and current events in my life. Yesterday I lost my business partner, mentor and very best friend. He left for a bike trip to Labrador last Thursday with a stop in Knoxville for business. His friends of 30+ years met up with him on Sunday and they continued on their trip.

I got word from his son yesterday around 5-6 that he went off the road and died at the scene in Newfoundland. This places great sadness on me for he was the most amazing businessman I have ever met. He taught me there was such a thing as morals and ethics in business. I will miss him greatly.

Cop Shoots Unarmed Great-Grandfather at Family Picnic

HOMER, LA — Two police officers crashed a family cookout to harass a man who was not wanted or suspected of any crimes, then shot the man’s elderly father and allegedly planted a gun on him, according to numerous witnesses.

This incident took place in the town of Homer, home to only 3,800 residents. The poor, northern Louisiana town had made it a priority for its 8-cop roster to get “tough on drugs.”
