Did you ever wonder why such an alarmingly high percentage of Americans are obese, diabetic, depressed and suffering from cancer, heart disease, kidney disorders and skin problems? Now consider the fact that Americans pay more per capita for health care than any other nation in the world. Americans pay the highest prices, by far, for medications, medical imaging scans, blood work, surgeries, chemotherapy and hospital stays. And yet what does America have to show for it? The most universally diseased population in the world -- and a nation on the verge of bankruptcy caused in part by mainstream medicine.
But this isn't a slam on America itself: It's an indictment of the mainstream medical system that has been running a monopoly medical racket in America for roughly the last hundred years. Under the system of monopolistic medical practices enforced by the FDA, AMA, FTC and state medical boards, "mainstream medicine" has taken a nation that was once relatively healthy and turned it into a disease dystopia where patients are actually taught that nutrition doesn't work and that they must submit to patented chemicals in order to be "normal" or healthy.
Mainstream medicine has reached such a level of insanity that its corporations now claim intellectual ownership over nearly 20 percent of the human genome. This has all been done to create a corporate monopoly over human genes in the same way that mainstream medicine has already created an FDA-enforced monopoly over isolated chemicals -- many of which were ripped off from nature.

Tonight, for the first time ever, I was telephone polled by Rasmussen.
I have always wondered who in the heck gets surveyed, and now I know.
This one was awesome for me to answer.
I did my best to scribble down the questions...
There were 21 of them and #s 12 through 15 were about Ron Paul. Yay!
It said the results would be on the website.
I will list the questions in my own words as best I can remember them.
Eggs are the cheapest source of high quality protein. At least eggs used to be the cheapest source. Documents again leaked showed yet again another commodity manipulation, but this time it is hurting all people who eat eggs. Gold, gas prices, and now eggs have much in common.
New documents boost egg-price fixing lawsuit claim
Attorneys: Documents bolster claims that egg industry planned hen kill-off to inflate prices
Monday April 12, 2010, 6:56 pm EDT
FRESNO, Calif. (AP) -- A lawsuit alleging the U.S. egg industry conspired to increase consumer prices got a boost recently when a defendant turned over documents and internal memos that show an industry group called for egg producers to slow production.
The lawsuit alleges that as egg prices climbed between 2004 and 2008, industry officials who blamed rising feed costs were covering up an orchestrated hen kill-off to reduce supplies.
"If you can get an agreement to manipulate supply, you are changing the economics of the market. Consumers will pay more," said attorney Michael Hausfeld, the lead attorney in the civil antitrust case against at least 13 of the nation's largest producers and trade groups, including industry giant Eggland's Best Inc. of Jeffersonville, Pa.
"OKLAHOMA CITY – Frustrated by recent political setbacks, tea party leaders and some conservative members of the Oklahoma Legislature say they would like to create a new volunteer militia to help defend against what they believe are improper federal infringements on state sovereignty.
Tea party movement leaders say they've discussed the idea with several supportive lawmakers and hope to get legislation next year to recognize a new volunteer force. They say the unit would not resemble militia groups that have been raided for allegedly plotting attacks on law enforcement officers.
"Is it scary? It sure is," said tea party leader Al Gerhart of Oklahoma City, who heads an umbrella group of tea party factions called the Oklahoma Constitutional Alliance. "But when do the states stop rolling over for the federal government?"
Thus far, the discussions have been exploratory. Even the proponents say they don't know how an armed force would be organized nor how a state-based militia could block federal mandates. Critics also asserted that the force could inflame extremism, and that the National Guard already provides for the state's military needs."
I think I trust the internal poll of the Greyson campaign rather than this independent official poll, NOT!
Rand Paul 45%

You've got to see the video from KY's WHAS 11:

Riding the Tea Party anti-Washington fervor, Paul links Grayson to Washington. Both Grayson and Paul have been battling for months over who is the real conservative in the Republican primary, a battle Paul is winning in the WHAS11/Courier Journal Bluegrass Poll, where 51% of conservative GOP voters back Paul.
Among moderate republicans, the race is far closer--
In fact, Grayson and Paul are tied among liberal republicans. (Ouch!) But conservatives are the motivated electorate in this political climate.
"People in the Tea Party movement sense there's a crisis coming," Paul said, "and that we need to something to get our government back."
Bowling Green local news ran a piece as well:
...But Bowling Green ophthalmologist Rand Paul has continued to maintain his 15 point lead over Secretary of State Trey Grayson in the GOP Senate primary, according to the poll.
The polling, conducted for the newspaper and television station by SurveyUSA, surveyed 446 Republicans and 659 Democrats likely to vote in the May 18 primary election.
The Democratic poll contains a margin of error of 3.9 percentage points, while the Republican poll contains a margin of 4.7 percentage points.
A Bluegrass Poll in March showed, Mongiardo leading Conway 45-27, with 19 percent of voters undecided. That poll had a margin of error of 4.1 percentage points.
The latest polling results come just five weeks from the primary in which parties will choose their nominees to replace Republican Sen. Jim Bunning, who is retiring.
For Republicans, Paul leads Grayson 45-30 among likely voters.
Here is the official report:

Tax Day and America’s Wars
What the Mayor of One Community Hard Hit by War Spending Is Doing
Massachusetts Patriots have formed a left-right Liberty Coalition Facebook page. This follows a call by Ron Paul, Ralph Nader, Cynthia McKinney, and Chuck Baldwin to put aside partisan differences for the sake of overriding principles we can agree on. The Liberty Coaltion Facebook page states:
Our Four Points of Unity are:
► 1. Freedom from Central & Foreign Bankers
► 2. Freedom from National Debt & Bailouts
► 3. Freedom from Wars & Empire
► 4. Defense Of Our Civil Liberties
These should bloom in every state! They could serve the very practical purpose of facilitating debate over possibilities for cross-party registration in order to put "4 Principles" candidates over the top in their primaries. For example, in CA-36 Democrat Jane Harman presently has no Liberty Republican challengers, but does have a strong Democratic primary challenge from Marcy Winograd, who is fiercely anti-war and rock solid on civil liberties (Harman, you'll remember. never met a wiretap she didn't like and suggested the NY Times should be investigated for breaking an illegal wiretapping story, citing "the limits of press immunity.") Ron Paulers in CA-36 might be persuaded to jump parties for a day to knock out Harman for Winograd, who despite some liberal positions is principled and decent.
Here is our man this morning.
Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tex.), the tiny libertarian with a huge political following, gave a vote of confidence to embattled RNC Chairman Michael Steele on Monday morning , saying that of all the party chairmen he's known, Steele is the first one open-minded enough to give him and his legions of small-government devotees the time of day.
"He's the first Republican chairman who's at least reached out to me, who would at least talk to me," Paul said in an interview with John Roberts and Kieran Chetry on CNN's "American Morning." "Generally the Republican leadership don't want to have anything to do with me or with the Ron Paul people."
Instead ignoring his supporters, Paul said the GOP should be reaching out to them. "They should be looking to us and saying . . . maybe they can be and should be in the Republican Party, instead of leaving them excluded."
The congressman has a devoted band of fellow libertarians who have propelled him to a role of sometimes awkward prominence within the GOP ranks. Although he has no official leadership role in the party, he won the presidential straw poll at the Conservative Political Action Conference this year and finished second in the straw poll conducted over the weekend at the Southern Political Leadership Conference in New Orleans.
When Roberts asked the congressman if Steele should resign from his role as chairman, Paul said, "I don't think so. I think he's doing a pretty good job. . . .
He has imperfections, he's admitted those, we all have those. But to kick him out of office right now, that's not going to happen and it doesn't make any sense."
