I'm watching the Dylan Ratigan show and he keeps promoting his Amendment to get money out of politics... But he never asks the most fundamental question:
"Why do corporations bribe government officials in the first place?"
Also, what's to stop politicians from being bribed in secret? Corporations could easily open up offshore accounts to bribe politicians and nobody would even know about it...
Also, what if corporations start bribing politicians with real estate or private jet use?
Well, here is an interview that Fox News filmed, but doesn’t want you to see. The segment was shot on Wednesday for Greta van Susteren‘s show, though the decision was made to leave it on the cutting room floor. The reason should be obvious pretty quickly.

I think this is a great piece that points out some of the things that happened to the Tea Party movement, and also points out the commonalities between the recent Occupy Wall Street protests and our own Liberty movement. Really, we should no longer buy into the left vs right, democrat vs republican paradigm, as I believe that is deliberately pushed by the establishment to dilute and break up the popular uprising. We all have differences, that's what makes this country so unique, but we also have a common enemy, corporatism, and those who seek to destroy our constitution and our rights.
I met with some of the organizers for the October2011 protests starting next Thursday. While I understand where they are coming from, I also know where corporatism is coming from.
What do you guys think, is protesting a waste of time when organizing requires us to act now?
Just an idea. That kind of spontaneous visit to address the protestors and encourage them, rail against big banks, rail against big government and rail against corporatism could get a lot of news coverage and win some more supporters. Specifically more "Blue Republicans.

"We will "Never Forget" 9-11. No need for reminders, America. But instead of reliving the tragic experience, today let's make a special effort to remember those who've so richly profited from it. Here's lookin' at you Xe (aka Blackwater), DynCorp, Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, L-3, Halliburton, Larry Silverstein, Dick Cheney, Wall Street put traders, and the 1,271 government entities and 1,931 private firms who are seeing green on this day of red, white, and blue. We will "Never Forget" you either."
This is an important article for your liberal Democrat friends to read.
"...Simply because Ron Paul is a libertarian with a strong fealty to the Constitution, that does not mean he is an enemy to those who have more socialist political beliefs. A Ron Paul driven Executive branch would simply work toward handing responsibility for social programs to the States and local communities, who would be much more efficient and creative in implementing those the citizens want.
Citizens United. This is the 2010 Supreme Court case that shocked America, influenced an election, and reversed over 100 years of campaign finance laws. In this case, corporations were declared as people and as such declared to have the same rights as people do. It also opened the doors for corporations to pour unprecedented amounts of campaign donations into elections, and what’s more, these donations can be totally secret. Corporations can now literally and legally buy elections and shape the government like never before in our nation’s history.
I'm having trouble understanding the Austrian position on corporate law since we advocate the rights of individuals as oppose to groups.
Robert Greenwald, the director of IRAQ FOR SALE, was invited to testify before Congress. He prepared four minutes from his documentary, but wasn't allowed to show it.
