Herman Cain Exposed: The Patriot Act

Herman Cain said recently in an interview with The Atlantic (link) that he agrees with 90% of The Patriot Act, which is arguably the most detrimental attack on our civil liberties since our emancipation from the British in 1776. When asked what the 10% he disagreed with was, he only gave a vague dismissive response, which indicates that he probably hasn’t read it (as most people haven’t) but wanted to retain for himself an exit strategy if ever criticized on the issue.

2 Ron Paul Issues that "Rational" Liberals have a problem with

Many "rational" Obama supporters/Liberals that have listened to Ron Paul agree with him on Foreign Policy, the drug war and the Bailouts. But two issues seem to stem out or scare them away. One is Universal Healthcare and the other is the Civil Rights Act of 1964 that Ron Paul said he would have voted against. In the following video from Adam Kokesh Kevin talks about how he agrees with Ron Paul on the Foreign Policy and war but disagrees with him on Property rights and Universal Healthcare,

My Congressman’s Case of Illogic

I recently moved to the west part of Houston and like any Liberty lover, I started to do some research about my area and who represents me. I am in Texas U.S. Congressional District 7, and I am represented by Congressman John Culberson. So, I went straight to his website and read his bio, this is what I saw:

As a fiscally conservative “Jeffersonian Republican,” Congressman John Culberson is committed to Thomas Jefferson’s vision of limited government, individual liberty, and states’ rights. Simply put, John Culberson believes in “Letting Texans Run Texas.”

How does a "Patriot Act"? Bachman should receive many copies of this article.

I think a campaign email flood for Bachman would be appropriate to show how much she really knows about the importance of the patriot act and the reality of how it is used. Be sure to check the graph half way down the page to give you an idea at who this legislation is aimed at. While some people might find it o.k. to use against drug users, the fact is that the patriot act is un-American and should be repealed with Obamacare.

Cops Confiscate Cameras at Ohio Congressman’s Town Hall

A congressman from Ohio had cops grab the cameras of constituents during a town hall meeting. Steve Chabot, a Republican, had cell phones and cameras confiscated in order to “prevent an embarrassing Youtube video from making the rounds,” according to Carlos Miller, who runs a blog documenting efforts by the state to stifle the First Amendment rights of photographers.

On the definition of fiat currency

The word “fiat” means to rule by decree. But nobody decreed that we must value dollars. We value dollars because the Fed possesses a portfolio of three-month T-Bills. We are confident that, should inflation threaten to turn into hyperinflation, the Fed can withdraw currency from society by selling those T-Bills and destroying the cash.

I discuss how this once happened in my paper, Is the Collapse of the Dollar Inevitable?

Scary Campfire Stories (or, tales the establishment tell each other at sleepaway camp)

This is a work of fiction, obviously. Hope you enjoy it!

Barry passed out the graham crackers to Nancy, Mitt, Ricky and Michele, and then fished in his knapsack for the marshmallows and chocolate. "Since you guys are from Camp Pachyderm across the lake while we're from Camp Mulesod, Nancy and I figured you'd never come to our bonfire."

Mitt spoke up first, "Well, while we're TOTALLY different from you, I like what you blue shirts did with the first aid shack, Barry. It's kind of like what I did with first aid at Ol' Red," he pointed proudly to his red camp t-shirt.
