from a totalitarian state...
Some people fear public speaking. Others fear spiders.
Peter Schiff's single greatest fear is that over-regulation, too much Fed intervention, and anti-business sentiment will eventually cause capitalism to come to an end.

A bipartisan group of House members has proposed legislation that would make it easier for people to defend themselves in federal cases for possessing marijuana, if they can show that they are using marijuana for medical purposes in line with relevant state laws.
The Truth in Trials Act, H.R. 6134, was introduced Tuesday by Rep. Sam Farr (D-Calif.), along with an eclectic mix of 15 House Democrats such as Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.), and three Republicans, including GOP Presidential candidate Ron Paul (R-Texas).
The bill would give people facing federal prosecution for marijuana possession the right to "introduce evidence demonstrating that the marijuana-related activities for which the person stands accused were performed in compliance with State law regarding the medical use of marijuana." It would also create an affirmative defense under federal law for marijuana possession.
The families of three U.S. citizens killed in drone strikes in Yemen last year, including militant cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, filed a lawsuit Wednesday that accuses top CIA and U.S. military officials of violating the constitutional rights of those killed.
The lawsuit, which was prepared in part by the American Civil Liberties Union, represents the most direct legal challenge yet to the Obama administration’s decision to kill U.S. citizens in counter-terrorism operations without open due process measures or scrutiny from courts.
Amazingly, MSM giving Dr. Paul a little respect. Thank you for that.

(Reuters) - Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke on Wednesday rebutted Republican lawmakers pushing a bill that would give Congress the ability to review monetary policy decisions, saying it could compromise central bank independence.
Bernanke said it would be a "nightmare scenario" if politicians decided to second-guess monetary policy.
"That is very concerning because there's a lot of evidence that an independent central bank that makes decisions based strictly on economic considerations and not based on political pressure will deliver lower inflation and better economic results in the longer term," Bernanke told the U.S. House of Representatives' Financial Services Committee.
According to CEO and Chief Global Strategist of Euro Pacific Capital Peter Schiff, the U.S. economy is heading for an economic crash that will make 2008 look like a walk in the park. Stimulus programs can delay this day of reckoning, but only for so long and only at the expense of making the eventual meltdown much, much worse.
Schiff, who famously warned investors about the housing and financial crisis in his 2007 book Crash Proof, says the Fed's palliative efforts during the housing meltdown have made the next crisis inevitable.
"We've got a much bigger collapse coming, and not just of the markets but of the economy," Schiff says in the attached clip. "It's like what you're seeing in Europe right now, only worse."
Remember the Missouri St. Charles County Caucus of March 17th? Remember how angry and frustrated you were when you saw the arrest video of Brent Stafford, a law-abiding caucus attendee whose only "offense" was leading the defrauded and abused caucus goers in legal assembly? He needs your help, and you - right now - are failing him. Here's how you can help him while defending your First Amendment rights...
The Freedom Center of Missouri is defending him for *free*. They are not just defending Brent... the Freedom Center is defending the security of the First Amendment. The Freedom Center is defending your rights. As of this moment they have only raised $140 for Brent's defense, and the trial begins a week from today. Donate. It takes five minutes. If you have to eat Ramen for a week, then donate. If you have to work three hours of overtime, donate. I donated earlier today.
Stand up and support Brent, the Freedom Center, and your own liberty.
Please read the note from Dave Roland, Director of Litigation at the Freedom Center of Missouri, here: http://www.dailypaul.com/comment/2624048
"I wanted to offer my heartfelt thanks to everyone who has contributed so far to the Freedom Center's defense of Brent Stafford. We were really starting to worry that we might not be able to hire a court reporter, but it looks like tonight's outpouring of generosity will help us meet that expense.
Please know that the $1,400 goal of this fundraiser is only the most immediately pressing expense associated with Brent's defense. Even if we happen to hit that target, the Freedom Center could certainly use any additional help that people are willing to provide. And if you'd like to learn more about the work we are doing to advance property rights, economic liberty, free speech, religious liberty, and limited government, please check out www.mofreedom.org - and tell your friends to take a look as well!

Here is another not as good, from Politico:
Texas Rep. Ron Paul said Tuesday that Mitt Romney should release more of his tax returns, adding to the pressure on the GOP nominee to share personal financial information with the public. “Politically, I think that would help him,” the Republican congressman and presidential candidate said in an interview with POLITICO. “In the scheme of things politically, you know, it looks like releasing tax returns is what the people want.”
The recent Reason-Rupe poll finds that 80% of Americans say they would or might consider voting for an Independent or third-party presidential candidate in the 2012 election. Specifically, 60% said they would consider voting for an independent or third-party candidate, 20% said they might consider, 17% said they would not consider, and 3% said they did not know whether they would consider voting for an Independent or third-party presidential candidate.
