In this episode of the Lions of Liberty Podcast, I welcome in Blue Republican founder Robin Koerner! Robin details his journey to the United States from Great Britain, and how he found himself smack in the middle of the liberty movement when his article, “If You Love Peace, Become a Blue Republican (Just For a Year)” went viral and led to his founding of the Blue Republican political political organization. We discuss various obstacles that libertarians often face when trying to explain the ideas of liberty to others, and how we can reach out to other people who share similar ideas in order to show that liberty is the correct path.
Welcome to your Thursday edition of The Morning Roar! We start things off this fine morning with a story from my own backyard here in Los Angeles. What’s that pesky LAPD up to now?
An airline pilot explains why this may be an accident with a logical explanation. Be sure to read to the end...the scenario he lays out has happened before, including turning off all communications.
I recently attended a city council meeting in Ashland, OR to OPPOSE a proposed ban on the open carry of loaded firearms. An old guy who claimed to be a "life-long" hunter showed up to SUPPORT the ordinance. This video lambastes the hilariously stupid things that he said.

Rand Paul spoke at Berkeley recently and was well received for his comments against US spy agencies.
You will recall his dad during the 2012 campaign was also well received drawing nearly 10,000.
This may be the left/ right voting block beginning to gel
I spoke with Rand Paul today before his speech here on reining in the NSA and protecting privacy, which was received enthusiastically. He’s one of the few people in America who can get a standing ovation at the Conservative Political Action Committee and also at Berkeley. But Berkeley wouldn’t have been so welcoming had he mentioned his opposition to abortion even if a woman’s life is at stake, or his negative view of gay marriage. He’s a libertarian only when convenient. We talked vaguely about national politics and he told me how much he collaborated with Senate Democrats.

On Monday the U.S. government took steps to seize the US-based assets of Russian lawmakers and anyone else that the US government deemed complicit in supporting the Crimean secession movement.
We’ve seen the U.S. government do this in countless cases surrounding drug and financial crimes, and sometimes even against foreign leaders like Saddam Hussein and Manuel Noriega.
As a follow up to my thread titled, "Gluten-free Testimony" I would like to share those symptoms that have disappeared as a result of my now 49 days of being Gluten Free. These are all symptoms I have dealt with up until seven short weeks ago, of which most have completely vanished. I share this with you all to give hope and empowerment to those who are still on the fence with trying this dietary remedy for themselves.
The list below is in no particular order. The changes in prior symptoms, some of which were not my focus to treat by changing my dietary intake are as follows:

I don't know what to say guys. I really thought this was going to happen. If any of you have been following my posts, I've been keeping the DP updated on the progress of South Carolina's Obamacare nullification bill.
"The first African-American president ought to be a little more conscious of the fact of what has happened with the abuses of domestic spying. Martin Luther King was spied upon, civil rights leaders were spied upon, Muhammad Ali was spied upon, antiwar protesters were spied upon."
