Prioritizing Importance in our Society: The Rubber Necking Mentality

Why do I care so much I sometimes ask myself? I answer: because it is important! I utilize the my time by researching candidates for local elections and national ones. I have developed a core philosophy on most of the major issues we face in the US today.

I fade in and a I fade out though. I fade out when I can’t find a candidate that matches my beliefs. I fade in when I find a candidate like Ron Paul running. I guess I do more than just fade in though. I dive in, as evidenced by this supposedly general subject personal blog having 97% Ron Paul posts. Given this truism of my personality I’m going to vent a bit with the rest of this post with some observations that sincerely anger me deeply and call for an end to apathy.

The fact that they anger me is probably the reason why I fade out. The helplessness is just too much. For now though, I’m taking aim… Read More »

The Unintended Consequences of Government Regulation: An Example

June 28th, 2007 10:27 pm  |  by  |  Published in Constitution, Economics, Liberty, Maven Commentary, Philosophy, Politics  |  1

I found myself trying to find and read anything that I could find online that was against Ron Paul. In doing so I discovered the web site, “Irregular Times“. Among several anti-Ron Paul postings, a post entitled, “Ron Paul is AWOL on the Environment” caught my eye. Not because of the author’s argument, but because of a comment made by Jason Wharton in response to the post. Read More »

“A Good Read” from Daily Paul…

June 27th, 2007 10:09 pm  |  by  |  Published in Constitution, Election, Individual Responsibility, Liberty, Neo-con, Philosophy, Politics  |  Comments Off

The Daily Paul blog posted an article including a post to Ron Paul’s Myspace page that was an almost perfect “essay” on Ron Paul, and why he and many others support him.

Have a read here.

The Essential Ron Paul

On YouTube there is a series of 6 videos posted that are portions of “Conversation with the candidate” in New Hampshire. It is basically a town meeting style forum where a single candidate takes questions from the moderator, in studio audience, and online. The videos are long, but well worth your time.

Unfortunately, Part 1 was removed by YouTube for some reason, but the remaining 5 are essential for Ron Paul supporters. Read More »

A good pair of clips that are actually about issues, much unlike the Neil Cavuto fiasco.

Ron Paul trades words on tax evasion with Neil Cavuto

June 26th, 2007 8:28 pm  |  by  |  Published in Constitution, Individual Responsibility, Libertarianism, Liberty, Media, Neo-con, Politics, Taxes, Television  |  Comments Off

Before watching this interview I recall liking and respecting Neil Cavuto.  I was expecting him to be a Ron Paul supporter much like Tucker Carlson has been.  I couldn’t have been more wrong.

This video illustrates perfectly what many have suspected.  That is, Ron Paul is going to be painted as an extremist by the main stream media and the other Neo-con candidates.  Well, now that I think about it… perhaps Ron Paul is an extremist.  Even so, being an extremist doesn’t mean he is wrong. If nothing else he certainly has logic on his side. Read More »

Ron Paul with Arnie Arnesen on ‘Political Chowder’ in NH

Check out this post on the Daily Paul Blog, another excellent source for Ron Paul information.

This interview is the kind I love. Ron sitting down with someone and talking for several minutes about the issues. In my opinion, Ron Paul shines in these type of interviews. Much more so than the soundbite laden debates and quick segments on MSNBC, CNN, Fox, etc..
