We are now UNBOUND on the first ballot at the RNC. To celebrate I decided to post my speech from the 2012 Texas Republican convention. This is a recording of the speech I gave to become the 3rd delegate to the RNC for CD 33. Rise up and let us have the numbers in Tampa! Line the Streets! Be heard! Shout to the hills WE WILL NOT QUIT! WE WANT OUR FREEDOMS BACK! WE ARE RON PAUL! Thank you TMOT!
U.S. News has come out with a new article of how Ron Paul has still not endorsed Mitt Romney while his son Rand has endorsed both Romney and his running mate Paul Ryan.
"His son, Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul, has endorsed Wisconsin Republican Congressman Paul Ryan as the vice presidential nominee, while Ron Paul has stayed mum not only about Ryan, but about endorsing presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney."
P.S. (Vote up if you like what Ron Paul hasn't done. LOL)
[ The Army Times: ] - The Army experienced a record 38 suicides in July, the highest monthly total since the service began releasing monthly figures in 2009.
According to an Army report, 26 active-duty soldiers and 12 Army National Guard or Army Reserve members were suspected of or confirmed to have died by suicide.

Three soldiers died at their own hands on deployment, and 13 had deployed at least once. But nine had never seen combat, according to the Army.

Ecuador's foreign minister announced on Thursday that the country would grant asylum to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, defying threats by the British government to storm the Ecuadorean Embassy and extradite Assange to Sweden, where he is wanted for questioning in cases of alleged rape and sexual molestation.
"Winners of the least visible contests in the primary could change the direction of the Republican Party in Snohomish County and even the state.
To the victors will also go the important spoil of picking leaders for the county party later this year and the state GOP in January.
That's what motivated libertarian-minded backers of U.S. Rep. Ron Paul and fans of conservative former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum to seek precinct seats in Snohomish County and across the state. For many, it meant taking on fellow Republicans backed by the establishment, including incumbent precinct officers.
I hate to give Fox News any traffic, but the Judge is worth it.
From Judge Napolitano posted at FoxNews.com: We are in terrible straits this presidential election. We have a choice between a president who has posed more of a danger to personal freedom than any in the past 150 years and a Republican team that wants to return to Bush-style big government.

Economic Collapse Blog: The worst drought in more than 50 years is having a devastating impact on the Mississippi River. The Mississippi has become very thin and very narrow, and if it keeps on dropping there is a very real possibility that all river traffic could get shut down.
And considering the fact that approximately 60 percent of our grain, 22 percent of our oil and natural gas, and and one-fifth of our coal travel down the Mississippi River, that would be absolutely crippling for our economy. It has been estimated that if all Mississippi River traffic was stopped that it would cost the U.S. economy 300 million dollars a day. So far most of the media coverage of this historic drought has focused on the impact that it is having on farmers and ranchers, but the health of the Mississippi River is also absolutely crucial to the economic success of this nation, and right now the Mississippi is in incredibly bad shape.
Deferred illegals will not receive public benefits.
PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has signed an executive order directing state agencies to deny driver's licenses and other public benefits to young illegal immigrants who obtain work authorizations under a new Obama administration program.
Brewer's order issued Wednesday says she's reaffirming the intent of current Arizona law denying taxpayer-funded public benefits and state identification to illegal immigrants.
WASHINGTON, August 13, 2012 — Prior to the 2008 financial crises, opposition to Federal Reserve orthodoxy was unacceptable in U.S. politics. The treatment of Ron Paul during the Republican presidential debates of 2007 and 2008 is evidence of that. His opponents repeatedly mocked him when he attempted to warn the American people that the Fed’s reckless actions would bring about a terrible financial catastrophe.
In 2012, discussion about the Federal Reserve is very different. The Fed is a topic that is now openly and thoroughly debated, due in part to its abysmal response to the financial calamity unfolding. Thanks in large part to the efforts of Ron Paul and the grassroots movement he inspired, the public is now aware of and debating the central bank’s actions, while alos protesting Fed policies.
Portland, Maine (PRWEB) August 15, 2012
The RNC Committee on Contests found no evidence to support the contest against the Maine Delegation on Friday, yet failed to issue a ruling. Instead, they changed their own rules, which previously required a ruling, in order to grant the contestants a second test to retry their challenge.
“The RNC Committee on Contests could not find any evidence of fraud,” said Mark Willis, the incoming National Committeeman for Maine who holds a Doctor of Law Degree from George Mason University.
“According to their own rules, the RNC was obligated to recommend that the Maine delegates be certified,” Wilis added. ”Instead, the Committee on Contests had to create new rules to give the challengers a second chance. Such a decision is unprecedented, violates party rules and violates the due process rights of the duly elected Maine delegation. In a court of law, this challenge would have already been thrown out and dismissed.”
