Editorial: Voters should send Rep. Justin Amash back to Washington

"In his first two terms, Amash has made a name for himself as a maverick libertarian unafraid of bucking party leadership.

He staunchly opposes clandestine federal efforts to collect data and records from Americans not suspected of committing crimes. He does not respond to every whim of his party, which has endeared him to ardent supporters."

Ron Paul's Texas Straight Talk 10/20/14: National Service is Anti-Liberty and Un-American (VIDEO)

Ron Paul's Texas Straight Talk 10/20/14: National Service is Anti-Liberty and Un-American (VIDEO)

Written by Ron Paul | Sunday, October 19, 2014

Youtube: http://youtu.be/iqe-sp4lHx8

Former Clinton Administration Labor Secretary Robert Reich recently called on the government to force young people to spend two years either “serving” in the military or performing some other type of government-directed “community service.” Neoconservative Senator John McCain has introduced legislation creating a mandatory national service program very similar to Reich’s proposal. It is not surprising that both a prominent progressive and a leading neocon would support mandatory national service, as this is an issue that has long united authoritarians on the left and right.

Proponents of national service claim that young people have a moral obligation to give something back to society. But giving the government power to decide our moral obligations is an invitation to totalitarianism.

Mandatory national service is not just anti-liberty, it is un-American. Whether or not they admit it, supporters of mandatory national service do not believe that individuals have “inalienable rights.” Instead, they believe that rights are gifts from the government, and, since government is the source of our rights, government can abridge or even take away those rights whenever Congress decides.

Rapid, Accurate One-Hour Ebola Test, Banned by FDA

The government is again guilty of murder.
-------------------------
Dallas Hospital Had the Ebola Screening Machine That the Military Is Using in Africa
10-16-2014

The military is using an Ebola screening machine that could have diagnosed the Ebola cases in Texas far faster, but government guidelines prevent hospitals from using it to actually screen for Ebola.

It’s a toaster-sized box called FilmArray, produced by a company called BioFire, a subsidiary of bioMérieux and it’s capable of detecting Ebola with a high degree of confidence — in under an hour.

The Enemy

The Enemy

He tossed and turned again that night,
Up as usual before the light,
I saw him sitting at his place,
A troubled look on his face,
A quiet man and often grim,
And again that look came over him,
But one morning at the break of day,
He said the things he had to say.

Son, I thought it was all worth fighting for,
But I’m not so sure anymore,
And all that stuff about country and glory,
Well, now I sort of doubt that story,
But what bothers me so unbearably,
Is the one they called the enemy.

He was just a young man like me,
The one they called the enemy,

I Love the Atheists, Christians, and Religious Fundamentalists

Seems like there’s been an awful lot of intolerance, hatred and trolling going on at the Daily Paul lately. I dread looking at the comment section anytime a topic has been posted having to do remotely with anything religious.

Nine real technologies that will soon be inside you

https://au.news.yahoo.com/technology/a/25293925/nine-real-te...

Given the frenzy of interest following the announcement of the Apple Watch, you might think wearables will be the next really important shift in technology.

Not so.

Wearables will have their moment in the sun, but they're simply a transition technology.

Technology will move from existing outside our bodies to residing inside us.

That's the next big frontier.

What is your favorite anti government quote?

Friends of Liberty!

I have a question for the many brilliant minds of the Daily Paul.
What is your favorite anti government quote?

When I think of anti government quotes these three come to my mind:

Government breaks your legs then hands you a crutch and says, “See if it weren’t for us, you wouldn’t be able to walk”. – Harry Browne

"Government is a disease masquerading as its own cure." – Robert LeFevre

"Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master." - George Washington

FEMA Conducting Pandemic Drills Amidst Ebola Crisis

In yet another curious coincidence surrounding the recent Ebola crisis, it appears that FEMA has been preparing for the appearance of a pandemic of deadly disease in the near future all along.

As part of the FEMA Pandemic Exercise Series: PANDEMIC ACCORD: 2013-14 Pandemic Influenza Continuity Exercise Strategy , the Sifma.org website states that,
