Rand Paul on Rick's List discussing Senator Jim Bunning blocking the passage of a bill that will add to the deficit weeks after the Senate passes a Pay-As-You-Go rule.
Part 2 below:
275,604 votes and 18.58% of the total on a shoestring budget, with the entire MSM aligned against you is HUGE! The message is growing!
Please join me in thanking Debra for fighting the good fight, on behalf of all of us. For stepping up to the plate, and putting her time, effort, dedication, love, and life on the line in the battle for the Cause of Liberty.
In my book, Debra Medina is a hero! Thank you Debra, we love you.
Let's put this into its proper PERSPECTIVE.
In the 2008 Republican Primary season, we were basically a "single-digit movement", meaning that in almost all cases, our support was less than 10%. In many states, it was down around 1-2%
In TWO SHORT YEARS, we have now officially pulled a "double digit" 18% result in one of the biggest states of the country, TEXAS.
We're now a "double-digit movement". That's about 100% growth, or even more, in 24 months time. That means that there are at least twice as many people out there who would vote for freedom and truth, than we had 2 years ago.
That represents a BIG GROWTH, and means BIG things for our causes as we move forward.
We didn't have a "loss".
We had a very big gain.
It just needs to be bigger, so there's more work to do. In 2012, we will have even better chances, because we're starting out with a much bigger base in 2010, and there's 2 more years to go until 2012.
If we can double our results again in 2 years time, like we did between 2008-2010, it will be near 30-40%.
And that, my friends, can win elections.
This thing is "do-able". Just because it didn't happen this time, doesn't mean it can't work next time.
Keep the faith, and keep up the hard work.
Eric King has an amazing, exclusive interview with Madoff Exposer Harry Markopolos that is just up on his site today.
Markopolos just released his book, No One Would Listen: A True Financial Thriller, two documentaries are underway, and a feature film is in the works. Markopolos put his life and the lives of his family on the line by refusing to let his Madoff investigation die. Five times he tried to turn him in to the SEC, five times they ignored him. Why?
"The SEC is owned lock, stock and barrel by Wall Street," says Markopolos. "The SEC roars like a mouse, and bites like a flea."
In this non-MSM interview, Harry tells of the SEC’s colossal incompetence and failures, how his life was threatened by Bernie Madoff, a ruthless, psychopathic mob boss. He discusses Greenspan’s failure as Fed Chairman,and the criminal banking syndicates he was in charge of.
Markopolos's description about the corruption in the United States at all levels inside the government and financial sector keep you on the edge of your seat.

'Revolution' Warning Over Bailout
Tuesday March 02 2010
A revolution will erupt if billions of euro more in taxpayers' money is handed over to Anglo Irish Bank, Enda Kenny has warned.
The Fine Gael leader said people can no longer tolerate massive public funding of the nationalised bank as it stands.
Expected record losses at the bank, to be announced later this month, have fuelled speculation it will seek another six billion euro from the Government, on top of the four billion it has already pumped in.
Mr Kenny told Taoiseach Brian Cowen there will be a popular uprising if any such request is given the go-ahead.
"There'll be revolution on the streets if you do that," he insisted.... (cont)
Bunning blocked the jobless benefits bill again today. At least there is someone in the Senate who is fighitng against deficit spending. Wish more would do the same!
WASHINGTON — Sen. Jim Bunning on Tuesday again blocked the Senate from extending unemployment benefits and health insurance subsidies for the jobless.
The Kentucky Republican objected Tuesday to a request by Maine Sen. Susan Collins, a fellow Republican, to pass a 30-day extension of jobless benefits and other expired measures. The measure would also extend highway programs and prevent a big cut in Medicare payments to doctors.
Bunning has been single-handedly blocking the stopgap legislation since Thursday, to the increasing discomfort of Republicans like Collins. Collins said 500 people from her state would lose their unemployment benefits this week, while doctors will soon have to absorb a 21 percent cuts in their Medicare reimbursements.
If you are going to listen to Washington politicians at all, it is always best to listen to the party that is currently out of power. After each election, it is the job of the losers to try to attack the winners in any way they can. Often, they inadvertently advocate genuine principles of liberty in the process.
During the 8-year nightmare that was the Bush administration, it was the Democrats that stumbled upon these principles in their efforts to regain the throne. It was they who pointed out that the government should not be spying on its own citizens, that the president was assuming un-delegated powers through executive order, and that it was neither morally justified nor prudent to invade a third world nation that had committed no acts of aggression against the United States and lacked any reasonable means to do so. Their hysterical mouthpiece, Keith Olbermann, even went so far as to cite a long-forgotten document, the U.S. Constitution.
Of course, it is now abundantly clear that these arguments were made simply out of expediency. With the Democrats in power, it is now the Republicans’ turn to “fight City Hall,” and they have rolled out their usual rhetoric about small government, free markets, and traditional family values. Moreover, they, too, have rolled out the U.S. Constitution and waived it around in opposition to the Democrats' plans to “spread the wealth around.”
In his Sunday New York Times column, Frank Rich tries to belittle and defames Congressman Ron Paul, because Dr. Paul wants to shrink the size and scope of the federal government. By lumping the former 2008 GOP presidential candidate with the pro-war 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee, Sarah Palin, and militaristic talking head Glenn Beck, who delivered a sharp rebuke of the GOP in his CPAC speech more than a week ago, Rich reveals his true colors: an unapologetic supporter of the welfare-warfare state.
Ron Paul should not be linked to either of these big government conservatives, nor to extremists like Joe Stack, who recently flew a plane into an office building housing the I.R.S. in Austin, Texas, or Timothy McVeigh who bombed a government office building in Oklahoma City in 1995. Frank Rich tries to paint Ron Paul and his supporters as violent, “obsessed and deranged,” and therefore a lunatic fringe that should be ignored as critics of the federal government’s policies, which Rich apparently supports: mass killing overseas, and legal plunder and currency debasement at home. Instead, Frank Rich implies that any criticism of the welfare-warfare state is due to a psychological disorder and therefore “these’ people are really “enemies of the state” and should be monitored very carefully.
Ron Paul has been one of America’s articulate advocates of a constitutional republic in the United State Congress. Dr. Paul supports abolishing the Federal Reserve and ending the income tax. He also favors replacing the entitlement programs with charities, and creating real, sustainable prosperity built on a foundation of savings and investments. Dr. Paul also opposes preemptive war and military adventurism overseas, a policy that fans the flames of hatred for America. In short, Dr. Paul is America’s most outspoken critic of the Empire that is responsible for tens of thousands of innocent deaths overseas and the financial bleeding of our economy.
