TAMPA, Fla. — It didn’t take long for strains within the Republican Party to surface Monday as national delegates got down to work on a final draft of the party platform, one week before the nominating convention opens.
Ron Paul delegates are making a diligent effort to wedge the defeated presidential candidate’s libertarian ideas into the party document. Among them: curbing the power of the Federal Reserve, enhancing the constitutional rights of individuals and opposing the overseas role of U.S. military forces.

Cyclops Technologies (NWO anyone?)is providing their software Plate Smart: License Plate Scanners to be used by Law Enforcement During RNC for ID checks, looking for suspended or revoked licenses or outstanding warrants, & Be On The Lookouts (BOLOs) Surely their info gathering & redistribution is unconstitutional, especially when they boast (their own accounts) a mere 90% accuracy rate.
Please comment and bump so that those going to Tampa will see it and benefit from the information or know to 'be there' to film what is going on! THX
An Oklahoma high school valedictorian who used the word "hell" in her graduation speech in May has yet to receive her diploma.
Kaitlin Nootbaar graduated from Prague High School with a 4.0 grade point average, her father, David Nootbaar, told KFOR-TV. But school administrators told him that Kaitlin would have to submit a written apology in order to get her diploma.
Gerald Celente on the Upcoming Seed Event and Why People Need to Think for Themselves to Avoid a Replay of the 1930sSubmitted by Peace Gold Love on Mon, 08/20/2012 - 10:33
Daily Bell: Are you concerned for your own well being?
Gerald Celente: Of course. And it makes me feel sad. It breaks my heart. I bought a 1750s building. Read the beginning of the last Trends Journal ... there's a story called "Haunted by Hitler," and how I came back from Germany in April, and I said to myself, how could the Germans, who were at the top of Western Civilization in the 1930s, let a two-bit freak destroy them? How could the Italians?
I mean, look at the Germans ... Wagner, Einstein, Dietrich, Lang, Beethoven, Bach ... the list goes on! How did the Italians let a little cartoon character like Mussolini destroy them? How did the Americans let Bush and Cheney destroy the nation, take them to war and put them under fear and control with Homeland Security? How could people believe in the presidential reality show again ... Romney or Obama?
Daily Bell: How could they?
Gerald Celente: It's the human spirit that allows people to do this. What is it about the human spirit that lets people give their lives up for others to run them? It goes back to the Seed Event. The SEED ... You're the seed. You better grow it.
Fox News has an article saying "RNC Chair Welcomes Rep. Paul & His Supporters at GOP Convention". Yet the first paragraph contradicts the articles title saying,
The head of the Republican National Committee says congressman Ron Paul and his supporters are "welcomed with open arms" at the Republican National Convention. Even so, the man who is technically still a candidate for president has no speaking role and is planning a separate event before the convention
To anyone who just reads the name of the article they would think that the RNC is being fair to Ron Paul yet the truth they cannot hide in the article.
Not fair, as usual...
“Bachmann’s unsuccessful bid for president had a clear and negative impact on her standing among voters in the new Minnesota 6 CD. She received low marks on both her job performance and personal favorability,”
Salon.com: In just three terms, Rep. Michele Bachmann has become an institution in the House, raising more money than any of her colleagues in either party and serving as the face of the insurgent Tea Party movement in Washington. With a massive war chest, a huge national following, and close allies with very big microphones, she seems unstoppable — so much so that she was at one point a front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination. But despite all that, there is a real possibility that Bachmann could lose her reelection bid this November.
Happy Birthday, Dr. Paul - from all of us here at the Daily Paul!

For each of us eventually whether we are ready or not, someday it will come to an end.
There will be no more sunrises...no more minutes...no more hours....no more days...
All the things you have collected either treasured or forgotten will pass to someone else.
Your wealth, your fame and temporal power will shrivel to irrelevance.It will not matter what you owned or owed. Your grudges, frustrations, resentment and jealousies will finally disappear.
So too your hopes, ambitions and to-do lists will disappear.
The wins and losses that once seemed so important will fade away.
It won't matter where you came from or from what side of the tracks you lived in the end.
It won't matter if your beautiful or brilliant. Even your gender and skin color will be irrelevant.
Reason Magazine's Matt Welch sat down with Napolitano at FreedomFest 2012 and discussed the ramifications of the Supreme Court's ruling on the individual mandate and whether or not there's a substantive difference between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney from a libertarian perspective.
That is awkwardly worded I admit--
1988vote (both of us) cannot go to Tampa--
We don't know anyone personally who can go. I have a real concern about the media blackouts, and I wonder if anyone on here is thinking of that--
How does information get out even to those of us on DP who want to know what is happening?
Any journalists on here? Does the 'revolution' have any journalists? Does anyone know? I am a 'babe in the woods' with regards to cameras; barely know how to use a digital camera. :)
How do those of us "out here" know what is going on down there? I wouldn't trust the MSM anyway, but I don't even have a television, and I know they will make those who support Ron Paul look bad--
NDAA guise or not: Brandon Raub was not "arrested." KIDNAPPED then? Also, please help on his legal fees.Submitted by sharkhearted on Sun, 08/19/2012 - 12:14
I am telling you folks, they are trying to exert the NDAA (which means no official "arrest"...just a kidnapping).
The FBI and the Secret Service and the Chesterfield County offer answers:
"No arrests were made." Said the Secret Service.
"The FBI did not arrest him. We just went to interview him." [But declined to comment further]. Said the FBI
"We just aided transport to the hospital." Said the Chesterfield County police.
Brandon Raub has been detained AGAINST HIS WILL in a Petersburg psych hospital. He has not been "arrested."
Just kidnapped. Abducted.
They used this tactic in every despotic regime on the planet. And it is one of the 10 steps to the closing down of a society in Naomi Wolf's masterpiece The End of America.
Number 6: "Engage in arbitrary detention and release."
IRONIC huh, that they would pick Virginia, on whose soil was the FIRST in the nation to sign into state LAW that the Kidnapping Provisions of the NDAA were illegal and unconstitutional, and that Virginia officials were NOT TO COOPERATE with the Feds when they came a-knocking.
