Recent interview with Josh Tolley -
"Block credits his "conversion" to Libertarianism to personal meetings with Ayn Rand while he was an undergraduate student."
It's a ridiculous challenge. People spent many hours going to the caucus and now they want to throw the whole thing out and replace the Liberty Slate with their own people because THEY didn't follow their own registration rules. There is now doubt that the result would have been the same if they had done registration properly.
Ms. Leombruno, a Republican state committeeman, was chosen by the Romney campaign to be listed on a delegate/alternate slate. She lost (she was not even present for the vote). She then filed a complaint with the Mass GOP saying it didn't follow its own rules and violated state law. The person responsible for ensuring that the rules were followed is her friend, Jon Fetherston. The person in charge of the committee that will make a decision on the complaint, Ed McGrath, also lost his bid for delegate that day. None of these people objected to how they were registered during the caucus.
Now she is requesting that the committee throw out the caucus results and appoint whomever it sees fit. This, in spite of the fact that there is no actual evidence any unqualified voters participated, let alone the dozens needed to change the outcome.
Happy Memorial Day Weekend Everyone,
Just wanted to share a video that summarizes where things are at with the Ron Paul commercial I've been working on. It has a few fun images that demonstrate the quality this piece will feature. Filming is now complete (outside of some minor detail/fill-in shots). All scenes were shot with either the RED Epic or RED One MX Camera, which are the same cameras that Peter Jackson is shooting the LOTR Prequels with. The commercial will be ready mid-June. It stars over 15 actors and was shot both at and nearby my studio in downtown Chicago. Will need everyone's help when the time comes to launch the spot to ensure it gets in front of a lot of eyeballs.
Will post a few more videos as we get closer to finishing up the piece. So far, everything has went tremendously well. Hope everyone enjoys this first glimpse:
Lawyers Have Confirmed What We Knew The Whole Time! All Delegates Are Unbound!
One of Rep. Ron Paul's (R-Texas) pet issues will hit the spotlight this July, as House Republican leaders plan to hold a vote on authorizing a top-to-bottom audit of the Federal Reserve.
In a memo to Republican members sent Friday, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) unveiled the GOP majority's plan for the months leading up to the fall elections. Among a "busy legislative agenda," including bills tackling healthcare, domestic energy production and taxes, Paul's 300-word measure has carved out a spot on the docket.
The bill is currently pending before a House Oversight subcommittee, but has garnered a substantial number of sponsors — 227 in all, including several committee chairmen. And while Fed-bashing became a popular activity on the GOP primary campaign trail, not all the bill's backers are Republicans. Several Democrats, such as Reps. Peter DeFazio (Ore.) and Dennis Kucinich (Ohio), are among those pushing for a Fed audit.

He hasn't won a single state primary or caucus, yet Ron Paul soldiers on in the 2012 GOP presidential race. The most recent results from our Political.com poll indicate that an overwhelming 93% of respondents have a favorable opinion of Ron Paul, which transcends party affiliation. Paul has been the U.S. Representative for Texas's 14th congressional district, which includes Galveston, since 1997, and a three-time candidate for President of the United States: as a Libertarian in 2008 and as a Republican in 2008 and currently in 2012.
Tonight Rhode Island had our Delegate / Alternate meet and greet and officially seated our State Delegation's RNC PLATFORM COMMITTEE (man and woman). One of which is a RON PAUL delegate to the RNC!!!
We definitely need to hook him up directly to the Ron Paul campaign -any advice would be greatly appreciated.
But I thought I would share the news first here at the DP.

Sioux Falls South Dakota city councillor States "a Vote for Ron Paul will prove South Dakotans still believe in liberty!Submitted by Skyorbit on Thu, 05/24/2012 - 18:56
. . .
If Romney wins overwhelmingly, the message would be that state Republicans are satisfied with their party’s presumptive nominee. But if Paul wins a large percentage of the vote plus delegates, the message would be that Republicans are not satisfied with Romney and/or that the cause of freedom and liberty still resonates in the hearts of South Dakotans.
Kermit Staggers is a City counciler in Sioux Falls and a political science professor.
It's starting to happen. The RINOs among the GOP halls are hearing the bells of Liberty and are beginning to grasp the warning that they must start to hear the call of Freedom or be purged.
In Nevada - they get it. And they left.
In other states - they will get it. And they will likely leave.
(CNN) -- Iranian sailors helped scare off armed pirates who attacked an American cargo ship in the Gulf of Oman, Iranian state media reported Thursday.
It's the latest example of U.S.-Iranian cooperation on pirate-infested high seas despite a wave of tensions between Washington and Tehran over the decades.
The incident occurred northeast of Fujairah, a port for refueling oil tankers, the Fars News Agency said. The port, in the United Arab Emirates, is close to the Strait of Hormuz, an important oil shipping lane.
Iranian navy vessels received a distress signal from the U.S. cargo ship Maersk Texas during patrols.
Corporate news blackout as Obama designates John Brennan as the sole person in charge of designating people to be assassinated.
John Brennan, Obama’s chief counterterrorism advisor was a name that you did not see on the Mainstream media today as they continue to run stories that serve to distract the masses from stories that matter.
Most recently he publicly spoke about the drone program calling it moral and ethical and just.
*Updated* Massachusetts GOP Denies The Will Of The People; Rules Provisional Ballots Won't Be CountedSubmitted by sawx75 on Thu, 05/24/2012 - 08:15
The Massachusetts GOP has indicated that they intend to throw out provisional ballots cast by legally registered Republicans during the April 28th state wide caucus.
The party printed these ballots, gave very precise and lengthy instructions on how they would be handled, and now they are throwing these votes away. Most likely these votes would have a positive effect on the Liberty candidates, so it is in their best interest to throw out these ballots. Some of the voters effected by this spent over 5 hours to cast their votes, only to see them thrown away.
Here is the video of the District 6 chairman explaining exactly how they would be handled.
We have also released contradictory information from the district 8 caucus as well. More video soon...
