The politicians and the existing state power holders are more invested in their protection and re-election under the illusion that they are interested in your protection. Great video that I stumbled on whn looking at the article on Surviving Argentina. Part 1 >>

“[The Muskegon County Republican Party]'s pretty much taken over by the Tea Party, Ron Paul-types and Libertarians,”
We are winning!
There is a WAR in the GOP because John Boehner has sold out EVERY principle that the Republicans have ever stood for. Whatever happened to small government, fiscal discipline and balanced budgets? Purge Boehner.
There is a WAR in the DEMS because Barack Obama has sold out EVERY principle the Dems have ever stood for. Whatever happened to protecting and promoting the interests of the poorer elements of society?
Why is Obama protecting record Corporate profits to the detriment of the overwhelming majority of Americans? Real wages are now at 40 year lows and poverty is rapidly rising.
Why hasn't Obama put any bankers in jail?
Instagram users outraged over new rules made good on their threat to dump the popular photo-sharing app.
The app, which Facebook acquired for $1 billion earlier this year, may have shed nearly a quarter of its daily active users in the wake of the debacle, according to figures from AppData.
“[We are] pretty sure the decline in Instagram users was due to the terms of service announcement” on Dec. 17, AppData told The Post.
Instagram, which peaked at 16.4 million active daily users the week it rolled out its policy change, had fallen to 12.4 million as of yesterday, according to the data.
(Reuters) - Two former executives at an Icelandic bank which collapsed in the 2008 financial meltdown were sentenced to jail on Friday for fraud which led to a 53 million euro loss, in the first major trial of Icelandic bankers linked to the crisis.
All three of the small North Atlantic island's top banks collapsed in quick succession in October 2008 due to big debts incurred during a rapid overseas expansion.
Glitnir was the first to fall after the collapse of Lehman Brothers caused international credit markets to freeze up.

The only British political party that describes itself as libertarian is the United Kingdom Independence Party, or "UKIP". Twenty years ago, it did not exist. Today, it has the support of anywhere between 7 percent and 14 percent of the British electorate. This rise from non-existence to a force in British politics so powerful that even the mainstream media have begun to identify it as the biggest threat to the governing Conservative party is all the more remarkable because the majority of the British electorate doesn't actually know what the word "libertarian" means.
The $16.3 trillion national debt is partly an illusion, because the Federal Reserve owns $1.6 trillion, which it purchased through its quantitative easing (QE) operations.
The Fed has been earning about $80 billion a year in interest income from these Treasury holdings and will earn more like $100 to $110 billion this year which will simply be remitted back to the Treasury.
In other words, this is debt that the Government owes itself! Our children and grandchildren aren’t even involved and they will not be saddled with this debt as long as the Fed holds on to it. This raises the question about why this $1.6 Trillion of Treasury debt held by the Fed should apply to debt ceiling.
After all, what difference is there between the Treasury issuing debt only to have the Fed buy it back, vs. theTreasury not issuing that debt in the first place?
Is there any good reason why the Treasury and Federal Reserve couldn’t simply wave a magic wand over this $1.6 Trillion debt held by the Fed and in effect cancel it? This would reduce the outstanding debt to about $14.7 Trillion which is well below the current statutory debt ceiling of $16.394 Trillion.

A petition posted to the White House’s “We The People” petition submission site asks for the elimination of armed guards at schools that the president’s and other politicians’ children attend.
The petition states that “If Gun Free Zones are sufficient protection for our children,” meaning “regular Americans’” children, “then Gun Free Zones should be good enough for politicians.”
The Senate agreed on Friday to approve an extension of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, legislation that allows the NSA and other US intelligence agencies to wiretap conversations involving foreign citizens without obtaining a warrant.
Despite growing opposition to one of the most notorious and secretive US spying programs, the Senate voted 73-23 early Friday to reauthorize the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, or FISA.
Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX), libertarian hero and constitutionalist congressman, will end the last term of his political career as the number two conservative in the House of Representatives behind Jeff Flake (R-AZ), according to a ranking system of all members of congress created by two political science professors.
The “DW-Nominate” ranking system, created by University of Georgia political science professor Keith Poole and New York University professor Howard Rosenthal, ranks all 636 legislators in the House and the Senate and is available on Voteview.com.
Senator Lee defends Americans' Fourth Amendment rights in debate on reauthorization of FISA warrantless wiretapping practices. He also discusses several amendments to the reauthorization that he supports that would improve many of the constitutional problems with FISA
