A great article about Ron Paul and the marvel of a person he is.
Only the first in a series!
I read this article and an immediate concern came to me. http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2011/09/30/florida-hold...
Legalizing cannabis is a concept that will not soon go away. Bi-partisan legislation sponsored by Massachusetts's Rep. Barney Frank and Rep. Ron Paul of Texas tries to get rid of control over cannabis from the federal government's metal grip. According to Reason, states will then have the ability to choose on their own the best way to manage cannabis, including how to get tax profits.

A bit old now, but not *too* old...
I redid the order to rank them from most to least popular. Also, the fair ended on the 5th, so I don't expect any further votes. ;-)

Tactically it makes sense.
State Column - Ron Paul Defeats Rick Perry, Mitt Romney in California Poll, "raised 1.03 million in twenty-four hour money bomb"Submitted by rp311 on Sun, 09/18/2011 - 23:56
Texas congressman Ron Paul has won the latest Republican presidential straw poll, capturing a majority of support in California.
The importance of religion for freedom can not be underestimated. Many political philosophers a couple of hundred years ago figured that the first states were religious creations as in the god Bahl declared these rules as the rules of this society to live by. Think of ancient Israel. The ten commandments served both as a moral doctrine and as a legal doctrine. To break the laws of moses was to break the laws of the state. The authority of the state and the authority of God were identical to each other. This made the state extremely powerful.

Hi, I recently had a respectful argument with a guy in my dorm about regulation. He insisted that even though the government is often inefficient in regulating corporations, that it is still preferable to deregulation and that the benefits outweigh the costs. He said that without clean air and water laws, that he would have had a 50/50 chance of living or dying by his age (18). I responded as best as I could, but I would love some advice on how to respond. Data and real historical examples to support my argument are preferable.
"A semi-failed state is a country whose government maintains all the trappings and appearances of power, legitimacy, and control. Its army and police are integral and operative. Its institutions function. Its government and parliament promulgate laws and its courts enforce them. It is not challenged by any competing military structures within its recognized borders.
This is unbelievable. Ron Paul should be talking about this sort of thing to gain more support from the left and anyone with a half a brain.
Beware when recording any interaction with the police.
One thing to watch out for is blatant attacks on broad libertarian-anarchist positions ascribed to him generally. They happen a lot and he doesn't step in line with most of them. If you want to know where his position on many, and very well all issues, just check with the Constitution. I say this in regards to Federal Agencies who, by law, delegate their authority to investigate and make laws concerning highly technical matters, that most members of congress couldn't make an informed vote on. The problem with this is that they've also "delegated" the power to "regulate" ie.
