Jonathan Davis, lead singer for hard-rock band Korn, wants Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul to replace President Obama in the White House.
During an appearance at Ramstein Air Base in Germany last week, Davis was asked, “Out of the four Republican candidates and Obama, who would you prefer to be president?”
“Ron Paul," he replied. (The conversation was filmed and posted on YouTube.)
Last year, the musician knocked President Barack Obama calling him “an Illuminati puppet” in an interview with Billboard.com. “He’s basically dragged this country down into the worst it’s ever been,” Davis said. “Like I say about the White House, ‘You’ve built this house of shame.’ Everybody looked up at the White House and America, and now I think it’s like a house of shame. I miss the old days when people were proud to be American.”
Voting Ron Paul is the only real way to shake things up:
Paul supporter fights Scott County GOP convention results
Quad City Times - Ed Tibbetts
A faction of the Scott County Republican Party is calling to reconvene the county convention Thursday, arguing the slate of delegates chosen earlier this month to move on to district and state conventions was selected improperly.
The state party, however, sided Tuesday with local party officials, who say the convention was conducted properly.
Michael Elliott, a coordinator for Ron Paul’s presidential campaign in Scott County, said Tuesday he expects 100 to 150 delegates, possibly more, to show at 6 p.m. Thursday at Tanglewood Hills Pavilion, 4250 Middle Road, Bettendorf.
“All we’re asking is the proper rules be followed,” he said.
The dispute stems from the March 10 convention, where a slate of 123 delegates and 123 alternates were selected for the district and state conventions.
Elliott and other Paul supporters say they were shortchanged by the convention’s nominating committee and the rules weren’t followed.
via Michael Yon: The mass murder in Afghanistan was predictable. Twice in the past three weeks, I published that it was coming. Why was I able to write this with sad confidence? I’ve spent more time with combat troops in these wars than any other writer: about four years in total in country, and three with combat troops.
About 200 coalition members have been killed or wounded from insider attacks. Afghan President Hamid Karzai is tantamount to being Taliban and has not bothered to apologize. Instead, Karzai whips up anti-U.S. fervor at every opportunity. Twice, Karzai has threatened to leave politics and join the Taliban.
Even our most disciplined troops — not the few problem troops — have lost all idealism. They have not lost heart for the fight. Mostly, they just don’t care. They fight because they are ordered to fight, but they have eyes wide open. The halfhearted surge and sudden drawdown leave little room for success.
We face a discipline collapse. The bulk of our force is solid — then there’s a small fraction, probably a sliver of a percent, who might be crushed by the pressure.
On Feb. 24, I published:
“As the prevalence of insider attacks rises, and we lose more troops to Afghan troops going berserk and murdering our people, it’s likely just a matter of time before a U.S. troop or troops turn the table and intentionally slaughter Afghan forces.

When Ron Paul talks, people listen. Seriously - it is impossible to refuse his request, especially a personal one like this:
Just caught this video earlier today, a short clip of Rachel Maddow thanking DP for promoting her upcoming book D R I F T, as well as perpetuating non-interventionalism in the Republican party. Thought you guys should see it! :D
By the way, everyone should subscribe to Mox News, the guy's a great information aggregate, wouldn't surprise me if he's among our ranks!
At the end of my usual 45 minute commute home from work, traffic slowed to a halt on the Garden State Parkway. I had just finished hearing a NPR news piece regarding the GOP primary, and, as par for the course, I didn't hear Ron's name mentioned in the slightest. So, naturally, I was angry and feeling a little down about our campaign. Then, in the midst of awful NJ congestion, I started hearing people rapidly honking their horns all around me. I looked around to see what all the commotion was about and then finally saw an (unkown) fellow Paul supporter walking diligently back and forth across an overpass holding a big ol' sign up!
Whew, it was just what I needed to keep my spirits high, I'm am not alone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ron Paul came to Southern California this Tuesday (March 20th) to appear on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. While being interviewed, the Ron Paul grassroots in LA amassed on the streets surrounding NBC studios with a remarkable show of support. Someone created the largest Ron Paul banner I've seen (30 foot). I created this video documenting the day, featuring an original song created on the spot by Mallori Elena and the other guy who's name I am searching for.
Please send this to every undecided voter you know in California. The video contains important voter information. Thank you.
Story from MSNBC...
Perhaps what is most disturbing of all can be found in the comments... all the "You joined the service, you knew the rules, now blindly follow them" comments are front and center, but ALL comments saying he should not be punished for refusing to obey UNLAWFUL/UNCONSTITUTIONAL orders are conveniently censored away from view, with the flimsy explanation "comment collapsed by the community."
See for yourself. I for one am disgusted more by our media-manipulated, STUPID populace who would call this Marine a traitor than the expectedly draconian response by his higher-ups.
Let's hope Stewart Rhodes with Oath Keepers can provide this Marine with some legal assistance ASAP.
Daily Paul founder Michael Nystrom did me the honor of allowing to speak to the media on behalf of Daily Paul. WNYC was interested in the grassroots reaction to Dr. Paul's latest fundraising report and his candidacy thus far. Here is the article from their website. Please check it out.
