At the very end of a question and answer session following a speech he gave at the Detroit Economic Club on Friday, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) let slip some hints about his plans for 2016. The final question came from a student, but as the questioner said it was also what “everyone in the audience wants to know”: “What are you plans for running for president in 2016?”

VAPORIZED: Detroit Obliterates Retirement Funds: 80% Cuts to Pensioners: “This Is Going to Affect Everyone”

Though a decade ago civil servants and union members would never have believed it could happen, the stark reality of the situation came to pass this morning.
We now know the answer to the question: What happens when a government makes promises it can’t keep and borrows so much money it can never be repaid?
The city of Highland, Mich., is riddled with drugs, poverty, prostitutes and general despair. The unemployment rate in Highland is 24 percent, more than three times the national average.
Accordingly, any child growing up in the city will undeniably have a harder time making something of themselves and escaping the grips of poverty.
But the inspiring young members of the rap group “Beasts of the Beat” say they control their own destiny, and their daily choices will determine whether or not they will be just another “statistic” or successful in life.

Detroit — O’Dell Tate has volunteered for the city’s Angels’ Night patrols for more than a decade and has watched as firefighters battle blazes that strain resources and put neighborhoods on edge.
Pre-face: Huizenga is no Justin Amash, but his record is kinda decent where it counts. He speaks in favor of auditing the Federal Reserve, but the bill HR 24 (Federal Reserve Transparency Act) which is cosponsered by 174 of his colleagues has stalled in his committee: House and Financial
You can read then my take in the description about the basis of the constitutional convention question.

Anyone that knows me knows that I record almost all interactions in politics. You never know when you are going to come across some juicy ommissions.
Last Friday, a local club hosted a meet-and-greet featuring Michigan Gubernatorial Challenger Mark Schauer, US Senate Candidate Gary Peters, and Attorney General Challenger Mark Totten.
Before the candidates had a chance to speak I got kicked out for filming. If you would do me a favor and watch the video/share it, the more embarrassing it will be for the people that censored independent media.
They get shot. Them getting shot puts fear into anyone thinking about playing that game in the future.
"Knockout; The object, target an innocent victim for no other reason than they are there, then sucker punch him or her.
But on this day in Lansing, there would be no punch. The teen-age attacker had a stun gun. He did not know his would-be victim was carrying a legally concealed pistol.
The teen lost the game."

14-year-old Nicholas King was shot by a cop after displaying what appeared to be a large-caliber handgun.
Little did the officer know, the “gun” was fake.
The incident happened outside of a party store in Battle Creek. King was allegedly hiding in the bushes with his realistic-looking toy when the police were called by witnesses.
Just leaving for work but saw this..
I wanted to post this to demonstrate how political street theater can be fun and informative.
While this video focuses on a state issue, it does tie into Obamacare.

Once again, the perpetually offended, politically correct, feminist-first crowd has found something to be offended about – shocking I know!
I don't come here as often as I once did. I'll spare you the story of my conversion to libertarianism, though I'd like to tell it one day.
Suffice it to say, I'm a (relatively) recent convert (about three or four years ago). I was a state delegate for Ron Paul in the 2012 election. The message of liberty resonated with me like nothing ever before.
But the reason for this post is just to say thanks to Michael Nystrom and everyone here for keeping this forum alive. The folks here may disagree on some things from time to time, and that's okay. Some of us are anarchists, some minarchists, some are just sick of what they see America as, or is becoming. But we're all united in the cause of liberty and freedom.
Hi everyone, I teach 9th grade US History. I cannot imagine a better job, and I wanted to start sharing some of my lessons with you.
