What is Your Fair Share?

"For were the impulses of conscience clear, uniform, and irresistibly obeyed, man would need no other lawgiver; but that not being the case, he finds it necessary to surrender up a part of his property to furnish means for the protection of the rest..."

- Thomas Paine, Common Sense (1776)

There were not many surprises in President Obama's 2012 state of the union address on Tuesday. He touted what he claims are the accomplishments of his administration and pushed his left-leaning economic agenda. For the president, all economic growth has its roots in some sort of government intervention, including "help financing a new plant, equipment, or training for new workers," giving "community colleges the resources they need to become community career centers," or trying to "spur energy innovation with new incentives." Of course, further expanding a government that already spends about 50% more than it collects in taxes can only be accomplished one way - by collecting a lot more taxes.

I Just Defended Paul on National Radio

I'm in Tampa, Florida and I was listening to the Hugh Hewitt show which broadcasts nationally. http://www.hughhewitt.com/blog

I wasn't able to record my call in but I'll do my best to transcribe:

The setup:

The host was giving callers one minute to voice their support for their candidate under the condition that they remain positive. Several Newt, Santorum and Ginrich calls came in and then a call came in which said they were for Ron Paul. It was an older man and he said this:

"I support Ron Paul because he's for legalizing drugs. He's for letting me do any drugs I want and to put them in my body. All the youth supports him because he's for letting them get messed up on drugs. Ron Paul for president ... Drugs for all!"

The host obviously realized he was joking and cut him off pretty early. This ticked me off so I called in. Here's what I said to the best of my memory:

Ron Paul to be the #2 Candidate by mid-February

Bottom Line: Paul will get more delegates than Santorum or Gingrich over the next two weeks.

I Am Now A Victim of the War on Drugs (UPDATE)

Hello Daily Paul Family,

I wanted to update you on my situation that I posted about last September.

I was arrested in August for 3 felony counts of manufacturing a controlled substance. My green thumb was not appreciated in my home state. I can not divulge all of the details about what happened, because my case is still pending.

I wanted to let you all know that I am now being represented by our state NORML director, Dan Viets. He agreed to a payment plan for representation, which was the only way I could afford him. Thanks to everyone's generous donations, it has REALLY helped. I still owe him a lot of money, so if you still want to donate, you can do it at my blog site ilovegenerationx.com, on the top left side.

Since all this happened, I did lose my home, my car, my job, and my life savings. It has been quite a tough six months. However, I am staying strong, and hopefully will have all of the charges dropped in the coming weeks...followed by a few lawsuits due to 4th and 6th amendment violations (they didn't know they were arresting someone that new the Constitution).

Dr. Funny Bone: A "King Killer;" GOP should "Laugh at him, at their own peril" - 1/29/12 MSNBC Video

MSNBC's 'Now w/Alex Wagner' featured a small piece that focused on Ron Paul, calling him "Dr. Funny Bone" and "The King of the One-Liner," due to all his great humor in the last debate.

http://youtu.be/3MFScg4TY60

Surprisingly, they actually praised Paul, with one saying "He's gonna be in this race for the long haul", followed by a commentator saying "the longer he can use his momentum and the spotlight to get his ideas out there, all the better.. As long as the liberal media stops making fun of him so much". - MSNBC bashing FOX, and themselves, kind of funny.

I Am An Individual

Some of you may have seen my posts on here over the last few weeks asking for volunteers for a new video project. I wanted to get supporters to record themselves reciting a speech I wrote and send me the videos. I had 48 videos submitted from all over the globe and edited them into this final presentation.

I've turned this into a kind of video petition, so be sure and read the description and like and comment if you want to "sign" it. The goal is to get 1 million "signatures" and send a clear message to the GOP that it's Ron Paul or another 4 years of Obama.

Anyway, here is the video.
