Her Romney-voting father was not impressed by my Ron Paul car sticker (Friday night story)

So I met a nice girl a few weeks ago, and I went over to her family farm to hang out. As soon as I got there her Dad pulled into the driveway after me, and I saw him looking at my car. (I assumed it was because it was an unfamiliar car in his driveway.)

I walked over to introduce myself to him, and before I got too close he yelled out, sarcastically, "Ron Paul, huh?"

I smiled and replied "yeah of course. Best vote of my life."

He just looked at me.

Then I said "and I donated a lot of money to his campaign, too." (A few hundred bucks is a lot to me at this point.)

He kind of laughed, gave me a puzzled look, and said "Really? That's probably why we lost."

Alaska GOP Ousts Incoming Chairman Russ Millette

On Thursday on Fireweed Lane, an executive committee of Alaska's Republican Party took a vote and ousted incoming Republican Party chairman, Russ Millette from the Republican Party top spot one day before he could sit in the chair. Since he was not yet in office, Millette did not to vote on his own forced departure.

Prior to the meeting on Thursday, party officials moved over $34,000 from the party's coffers to the party's sister group in Juneau on Wednesday, effectively putting the funds out of the incoming chairman's reach.

The House Always Wins

A little back story on this article. I was one of the 17 delegates that got bounced by the MA GOP State Committee. We did not disappear after that, we continue to fight to bring a more conservative track to a very liberal state GOP. We are true grass roots, not neo-con astroturf. We had a candidate that supported liberty candidates, as well as a collection of other more conservative coalitions up for election as the chairman. We ended up losing by a slim margin, but watching the collection of unscrupulous party "leaders" last night was sickening. The person that won was endorsed by Scott Brown, and I suppose the entire weight of the MAGOP will now be thrown behind his special election. Forget the grass roots when you can have top down leadership I guess.

The House always wins.
The establishment makes sure of that. They do it all the time. Last night was no different. As I stood there watching a group of cheating and unscrupulous establishment cronies celebrate, I was left wondering what it all meant. As I watched the State Committee members that actively and immorally overturned the votes cast at last April’s caucus, I had a feeling that something wasn’t right. A feeling grew in my stomach as I watched them high-five chest bump. What were they cheering for? Why were they so excited? Do they even understand what it all means? Do I?

Nope, not at all. I do not understand it at all. Last night was strange. In the midst of the cheers and long faces a weird thing happened. I had surreal feeling of stepping back to observe the scene. I felt as if I was watching a performance, kind of like a puppet show, where the performers are manipulated to display their actions by some unseen force causing them to react. They were counting votes, speechifying, laughing, joking, glad handing, basically being politicians. They performed admirably, and were able to cast their spell on the audience as all good puppet shows should. They lured us in to suspending our belief that it is not fake, that what they were doing is real, and that we actually had a chance in making change. That the ideals of a more conservative path would be an attractive alternative to the shameful state that the party is in. That volunteers are willing to sacrifice for their beliefs, and that you do not need to pay “volunteers.” That the energy of true grassroots would be enough to overcome the thin veneer of astroturf that currently exists.

National Elementary School Toy Gun Show-And-Tell Day

Here is a South Carolina 6 year old kicked out of school for bringing a toy gun to school (http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/s-student-6-expelle...).

How about this Philadelphia story of a paper gun resulting in the same punishment(http://bungalowbillscw.blogspot.com/2013/01/a-paper-gun-gets...)?

Another child was kicked out for "threatening" to use her "Hello Kitty" gun - but she didn't even have it at school... she is 5 years old (http://www.nbcphiladelphia.com/news/politics/Kindergartner-B...).

A pair of 6 year old boys in Maryland were playing "cops and robbers" and were suspended. Obviously, they are a serious threat (http://baltimore.cbslocal.com/2013/01/15/parents-furious-aft...).

Have you had enough of this idiotic behavior? These administrators are completely out of control - and they are everywhere. These stories are all from the last few weeks - all in January 2013. There are plenty more, and there will be more in the future. The goal is to demonize the very idea of guns, instead of bad behaviors with weapons, or bad behavior in general.

Objects are not good or evil, people are.

Enemies: A short film shot on the way back from Paul Fest.

Hey guys, I'm an aspiring filmmaker from Southern Oregon. I've made and am currently working on several liberty-oriented films. Here is my latest, it's called Enemies. Check it out at the link below:

http://youtu.be/F-TQcDpFMJY

This one isn't quite so explicitly liberty oriented as some of my past and upcoming work, but I hope you guys will still enjoy it. This film was shot on a whim while me and my associates were on our way back from Paul Fest. We made up a story and just shot it as we went on the long drive from Tampa back to Oregon (although we didn't even come up with the idea until Mississippi!). I hope you guys will like it and share it with your friends.

Thank you from the Daily Paul II

Here's a little project I've been working on: Writing thank you cards to all the people who have contributed to the latest Daily Paul fundraiser.

I had a thousand cards printed, and set out the bulk of over 350 of them yesterday. If you made a contribution, keep your eye on the mail ;-)

It is important for me to do this as a reminder to myself, that there are people, all over the country and world (we had over 25 international donations), that really love this site and what it is. To actually take the time to write a check, stick it in an envelope and send it is a profound statement of love. To send money to me to help keep the site going for everyone here - for the common cause - when just reading it is free, is a profound statement.

FBI given the bum's rush out of Iceland, score one for Wikileaks.

http://rixstep.com/1/20130131,00.shtml

REYKJAVÍK (Rixstep) — FBI agents landed in Reykjavík without prior notification in an attempt to investigate WikiLeaks operations in the country, but Home Secretary Ögmundur Jónasson found out about the visit and forced them to leave the country, with the Icelandic government then issuing a formal protest to US authorities, according to Islandsbloggen.

The hunt for WikiLeaks by the US has on several occasions involved private individuals and companies on Iceland. Authorities in the US have for example succeeded in obtaining account information from Twitter on parliamentarian Birgitta Jónsdóttir. Jónsdóttir today refuses to travel to the US out of fear of being arrested for her connections with WikiLeaks.

The Government wants your guns, not to protect you, but to protect themselves from you

After thinking about it for some time, I have decided to share my true story with you, in the hope that maybe even a few can be convinced of the absolute tyrannical state of our government and the absolute necessity of fighting to keep our 2nd Amendment rights at all costs.

What I am about to tell you is the truth. I am not twisting the facts in any way or changing any names to protect the innocent (whoever they may be).

In 1999, I ran a successful business with my father and brother. My dad came across some information that literally shattered my beliefs about the rule of law in this country and literally changed my life forever. He came across a man named Irwin Schiff (yes, Peter Schiff’s dad...who is now in federal prison because he was not allowed to bring up the law in his defense) who had written a book (The Federal Mafia...which is now banned...so much for the 1st Amendment) unequivocally stating that the Income Tax, as it was being imposed was a fraud. He asserted that the 16th Amendment did NOT give the federal government the authority to directly tax a person’s wages and that because of this, the term “income” as used in the 16th Amendment was not defined in the Internal Revenue Code, nor was there any liability section ever created for Income Taxes in the IRC stating who exactly is required to pay the tax (as there is for EVERY other tax in the IRC). I was literally shocked by this information, as was my dad. If it was true, the federal government was getting away with one of the greatest hoaxes in American history. How could this be true in America...the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave?

New Hydroponic System I built that is efficient for those of us who are spatially challenged!

Hey Guys, I've been working on this for several weekends and finally posted a video of it. I designed this unit to fit in 1 square foot but be able to hold 12 plants. I built it from materials readily available to anyone with a hardware nearby. About the only thing you may have to order online would be the timer and the pump.

Anyway, this is my project! Check it out!
