Soon the U.S. dollar will be worthless.

Russia has now officially begun selling oil to China without using the U.S. dollar as the trade medium. This is the latest step in the death of the pero dollar, and a big step in the end of the U.S. Dollar as a reserve currency.

When that happens the remaining 3% of the dollars original value will be wiped out, and financial collapse will occur.

Right to fair trial?

I have a question to all those legal minded DPers out there. This deals with FOC or Friend of the Court proceedings. If you have the right to remain silent, and the right to have an attorney present even when being charged with the most terrible crimes you could imagine, why and how is it that the FOC is allowed to conduct their "interviews" in a locked back room closet without allowing any legal counsel, any recording devices, or any witnesses?

Fear is a powerful tool

I was doing some thinking the other day and realized that fear controls much of my life.

I'm afraid to always say what's on my mind, because I fear the consequences of being placed on a list, especially the no fly list, may want to leave soon.

I'm afraid to stop paying my taxes, because of fear of the retaliation of the IRS, and the impact it will have on my family's life.

I'm afraid to go out and enjoy myself at the local pubs, because I'm afraid that I may have just too much to put me over the legal limit, and fear having to pay thousands of dollars in fines and legal costs.

I fear taking up arms in open rebellion, because I know the outcome for those who stand alone against governments such as ours.

I fear doing anything which would jeopardize my job, because I fear losing my home and land.

Libertarians Hoping Amash Gets Like-Minded Help in November

Libertarians have high hopes for several Republican House seat hopefuls this fall who they see as potential allies for Michigan Rep. Justin Amash, an outspoken libertarian who stands nearly alone with his political views.

On Tuesday, Tom Emmer's win in Minnesota gave them reason to celebrate more, as they see him as a possible heir to outgoing Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann's seat who will also help to back up Amash's point of view, reports The Washington Examiner.

Amash dissent: Why my opponent's smears were 'disgusting'

by Justin Amash
August 14, 2014 at 9:55 AM

Editor's note: The following is a dissent to the Aug. 10 Grand Rapids Press editorial Amash missed chance to take high road.

Why did West Michigan have to endure "the ugliest House primary" in the country?

That’s how a national magazine described the attacks aimed at me over the last 10 months.

They included a thinly veiled slur that one of the handful of Arab Americans in Congress is “al Qaeda’s best friend.”

“Who’d they say is Daddy’s best friend?” my six-year-old daughter asked my wife.

UPDATE: GOP to purge Liberty contingent in Oakland County, MI

See Update below

*************************
I will report back after our County convention tonight - but I believe here's what's going to go down... as an elected precinct delegate (second time) I received an email from the local GOP saying that "oopsy" we made a mistake and didn't properly file our plan. Due to our "mistake" we can't hold local area caucuses during our convention, and must caucus as a county as a whole.

Washington Post: Justin Amash's amazing victory speech (video)

Politicians who win campaigns, no matter how dirty, will almost always kiss and make up with their political opponents in their election-night speeches.

Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.), of course, is not your average politician.

After defeating a Chamber of Commerce-backed candidate in his primary by 14 percentage points on Tuesday, the Ron Paul ally set about settling a few scores.

Rep. Justin Amash defeats Brian Ellis: 'I ran for office to stop people like you' (video)

GRAND RAPIDS, MI — U.S. Rep. Justin Amash's primary victory celebration quickly turned from appreciation for his supporters to an attack on his Republican opponent and others who the two-term congressman felt betrayed him.

"Brian Ellis, you owe my family and this community an apology," Amash said. "You had the audacity to try to call me today after running a campaign that was called 'the nastiest in the country.'

"I ran for office to stop people like you."

Congrats to George Brikho for officially becoming the liberty movements 9th district candidate!

Despite other negative posts mainly from one individual on the dailypaul who clearly does not truly know George as the man he is or appreciate and respect the scrutiny and hardships George has willingly submitted himself to for the sake of preserving what our country was based upon I am glad God has blessed us with a man who is not afraid to speak his mind, and is unwilling to topple to the mainstream fascist agenda under pressure.

Who Spends $400,000 to Remove One Tree? A Public University, Of Course

The culprit of the financial insanity is the University of Michigan, which is moving this single tree to make room for a $135 million expansion of its business school.

For the 2013-14 school year, in-state total cost of attending (tuition and fees) the University of Michigan was $13,189 and out-of-state total cost was $40,496. The cost to remove this tree was over 30 times the in-state cost and almost ten times the out-of-state cost.
