Lamar Smith is a career politician, he's now pushing a bill to make the DEA's reach global. Just another Neo-Con finding new ways to imprison Americans.
Are you a college student/ average American looking to study abroad/ backpackin Europe? If you ever discussed the idea of visiting Amsterdam and buying a joint, you can find yourself under federal indictment when you get home, eventhough marijuana is legal in Amsterdam.
How far will these laws eventually go? Arresting a 19 year old US Navy sailor because while at port in Thailand he legally drank a beer with his shipmates?
There are thousands of people down there who don't realize they are Ron Paul supporters yet, and are either unregistered or registered Dem/Green/Ind. We need to organize a SERIOUS drive to get these folks to register Republican for NY closed primaries: THEIR DEADLINE IS THIS FRIDAY!
PLEASE don't let this phenomenal opportunity go to waste! C'mon! It'll be like shooting fish in a barrel!!
For the 2008 election Oklahoma moved their primaries to the first Tuesday in February.
For the 2012 election the primaries have been moved to the first Tuesday in March.
Just in case any other Okies were wondering when our primaries are so they can make plans to go vote!

I’m in no position to be endorsing a candidate, and truth be told I’ve lost a lot of confidence in the voting process in the last four years. At this point I’m not planning on voting at all. But four years ago I was campaigning for Ron Paul. I had no illusions about him winning the GOP primary, but no one else was talking about the Federal Reserve or US foreign policy like he was.
I read this article and an immediate concern came to me. http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2011/09/30/florida-hold...
One person can do a WHOLE LOT for the cause of liberty. It may seem overwhelming at times, or even daunting, to try and convince enough people to help get Paul elected. But in reality, you only need to be concerned with what YOU can do. And let me tell you, ONE PERSON can plant THOUSANDS of seeds in people's minds, which may seem subtle and insignificant at first, but have the massive potential to sprout into complete support for Paul and the liberty movement.
Washington Post points out an interesting problem. While Ron Paul has a huge following, relatively few of us are registered as Republicans...so we can't vote for him in the primaries.
We really need his fans and supporters to register as Republicans, even if it's just temporary, like this group of Blue Republicans: https://www.facebook.com/bluerepublican?sk=info
Have you registered republican yet?
The Florida GOP more than likely pushed by the federal GOP has moved their primaries forward to late January. I think they feel that they can steal Dr. Paul's thunder due to his 5th place finish, and in doing so stomp out any chance of momentum he would have placing in the top three in Iowa. This is the first trick up their sleeve, so do we need to go to work in Florida? I am sure in the other Southern states Dr. Paul will not fair well, but it appears that Iowa has countered by moving their primaries up to around New Years. Anyone else smell the stink from this?
Most of us will vote on principles of liberty and freedom which we strongly believe in, and no one but Paul will do.
You may choose to play the "Anyone but Obama" game and sell out what you believe in for the lesser of two evils (once again), but for us, it is "No one but Paul"!
Feel free to join FB group "No one but Paul!" and to invite all your FB friends that are sympathetic to Ron Paul:

I hear lots of talk about how the early primaries might play out. Of course, I understand, pundits discount Ron Paul in all of them. (except maybe Iowa) But I've yet to hear of anything about a strategy for securing the nomination. Is this simply going to be a shotgun approach and let's just hope we "do our best" in each state as it comes up, or is there some actual strategy about how it might be possible to win this or that early primary?
It's not enough to say "Vote Ron Paul"
PEOPLE NEED TO SWITCH PARTIES 12 WEEKS IN ADVANCE OF THE PRIMARIES IN MOST STATES.
IF YOU DO NOT SWITCH IN TIME YOU CANNOT VOTE IN PRIMARY.
IF YOU ARE NOT REGISTERED REPUBLICAN YOU CANNOT VOTE IN PRIMARY.
IF RON PAUL DOES NOT WIN PRIMARY, NO GENERAL ELECTION ! REGISTER AS A REPUBLICAN. FIND OUT WHEN YOUR STATE HAS PRIMARIES. FIND OUT WHERE AND VOTE VOTE VOTE ! PLEASE !
WE NEED EVERY LAST VOTE ! Copy and paste this everywhere
Why haven't I heard about this until now? Spread the word. It's the message that is important not the speaker(Morris).
September is winding down and that leaves us with about 4 months until primaries begin. Four months can seem like a very long time, but trust me, it'll fly by quickly and before you know it, the primaries will be here. We MUST be prepared. There is no time to waste. As you all know, we have a A LOT riding on this. So, let's look at the rundown of what's coming up:
o February 6 – Confirmed date of the Iowa caucuses
o February 14 – Expected date of New Hampshire primary
o February 18 – Confirmed date of the Nevada caucuses
o February 28 - Confirmed date of the South Carolina primary
* February 28 - Confirmed date of the Arizona primary, in violation of the Republican National Committee rules
* February 28 - Expected date of the Michigan primary, in violation of the Republican National Committee rules
* March 6–31, 2012: Primaries (and other contests) that provide for proportional allocation of delegates to the candidates, and all nonbinding caucuses;
* April 1, 2012 onward: All other contests.
So, the first four primaries are Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, and South Carolina.
