I thought I'd share my gubernatorial run with the Daily Paul:
Liberty activist and former Christian pastor Dax Ewbank, 38, has announced he will challenge Mary Fallin in the Republican primary for the office of Governor. Ewbank was born and raised in Oklahoma and is a lifelong Republican. Ewbank and his wife Julie currently reside in Guthrie along with their 7 children, ages 2 – 16.
Gun-grabbing fever has finally reached the conservative stronghold of Oklahoma.
An annual meet-and-greet at the Oklahoma State Capitol in Oklahoma City turned sour when an anonymous senator demanded that the 40 sheriffs in attendance remove their firearms.
But rather than disarm, the sheriffs voluntarily walked out.
When given the choice, Wagoner County Sheriff Bob Colbert said, “We all packed up and left.”
“One of the senators, who they wouldn’t tell us, complained because we were armed in the building,” Colbert added. “Everybody in that building knew who we were.”
Oklahoma residents who produce their own energy through solar panels or small wind turbines on their property will now be charged an additional fee, the result of a new bill passed by the state legislature and expected to be signed into law by Gov. Mary Fallin (R).
On Monday, S.B. 1456 passed the state House 83-5 after no debate. The measure creates a new class of customers: those who install distributed power generation systems like solar panels or small wind turbines on their property and sell the excess energy back to the grid. While those with systems already installed won’t be affected, the new class of customers will now be charged a monthly fee — a shift that happened quickly and caught many in the state off guard.
It’s tornado season again in Oklahoma. The ominous clouds and warm air one day last week reminded Danni Legg of the afternoon last May when a twister laid waste to the city of Moore and killed her 9-year-old son.
“Your heart drops,” she said.
Legg and the families of six other children killed at Plaza Towers Elementary School in Moore helped gather more than 100,000 signatures last year for a ballot initiative to equip the state’s 1,800 public school buildings with storm shelters.

(Reuters) - Earthquakes rattled residents in Oklahoma on Saturday, the latest in a series that have put the state on track for record quake activity this year, which some seismologists say may be tied to oil and gas exploration.

Over 40 Sheriffs walked out of the Oklahoma State Capitol this week after an unknown senator demanded they remove their firearms.
OKLAHOMA CITY | Mar. 4, 2014
A bill that would nullify Agenda 21 in Oklahoma passed through the state house today
HB2807, the “Oklahoma Community Protection Act,” would prohibit any state agency or political subdivision from adopting or implementing “policy recommendations that deliberately or inadvertently infringe upon or restrict private property rights without due process.”
Oklahoma law enforcement officers beat a man to death before confiscating his wife’s cell phone after she video recorded the incident, leaving the key piece of evidence in the hands of the killers.
Police said they needed the phone as “evidence” but the United States Department of Justice has made it very clear that police can only seize a camera without a warrant if they believe the camera contains evidence of a crime and if they believe this evidence would be destroyed if they don’t act fast to obtain it.
I watched America live a little today, in the effort and passion put forward by the hundreds of citizen lobbyists who showed up at the Oklahoma State capital today to fight against the tyranny of marijuana prohibition. I also saw America die a little bit as we sat in the senate gallery and watched them pass a bill to hand over our presidential electoral college process to the centralized national media propagandists. All in the name of "democracy", with platitudes and assurance that its all "For the people". But its plain who is pulling the strings, and it's not "the people".
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn will finish out the current congressional session and then resign from his seat nearly two years before his term is scheduled to end, he said in a statement released late Thursday.
The 65-year-old Republican said he would leave the Senate at the end of the current session in January 2015. His term was scheduled to end in 2016, and Coburn already had vowed not to seek a third.
So what do we know about Randy Brogdon? He’s running for Gov of OK challenging Republican incumbent, Mary Fallin. I just recently learned about his campaign on the Tom Woods show, which was pretty cool as I am a brand new subscriber to his iTunes podcast, and was surprised to hear about a Liberty candidate in Oklahoma. Then thought, it prob wont matter. This guy wont have a shot at beating Fallin... But the democrats down here hate her. I mean they HATE.
Two to Three times a week I would talk to Mr Cox on the phone....... one of the most energetic and caring men to walk this Earth. Mr Cox had a code hearing the next day in municipal court over some treasures he'd collected and had stored on his property. I've been unable to contact my friend now for close to a week. Last Wednesday night was the last conversation I had with this 72 year old entrepreneurial spirit, calling from the east coast to Oklahoma we talked for over 50 minutes.

With Democrats blaming the Republicans and Republicans blaming the Democrats for the government shutdown, one thing is certain, there is somebody who is blame for this mess.
You can blame the Republicans for not “compromising” and “causing” the shutdown for standing by their “principles” and not passing a bill to fund the government unless it cuts out Obamacare.

The federal government is very good at distracting people. They do this so that they can exert more control over those people.
Edward Snowden. Where is he? What country is he in now? Who is going to give him asylum? Is he a hero or is he a traitor? Edward Snowden in this paper. Edward Snowden on that news report. Edward Snowden all over the blogosphere.
Wait. What? Why are we talking about Edward Snowden so much? Why is there so much attention on Edward Snowden?
Any sort of top-down accountability when it comes to education is driven by politics and not driven by the needs of students and thus squash the life out of classrooms and, contrary to the leftist mentality, hurts the poorest areas most.
The No Child Left Behind Act required every state to test every student every year and judged those students and schools exclusively on those test scores. The wreckage of NCLB is still apparent in schools across the nation.
