Video of Ron Paul volunteers at the Iowa Straw Poll

This video is of the end of the Ron Paul supporters “march” through the Iowa Straw Poll grounds.  They marched through the grounds twice and stopped at the entrance/exit of the venue where all the candidates speeches were being made.  They lined the exit as other candidates supporters left the building and they… well just watch…

Another wonderful example of Ron Paul grassroots support success

August 13th, 2007 3:09 pm  |  by  |  Published in Activism, Politics, Ron Paul  |  Comments Off

There are many examples of the grassroots support Ron Paul is getting from the various meetup groups across not just the country but all over the world.  The link below will take you to RonPaulForums where a member shares a story about a meeetup sign waving event in New Jersey. And of course, I wouldn’t be posting it here if it wasn’t worth your time.

More analysis of the Iowa Straw Poll

August 13th, 2007 3:00 pm  |  by  |  Published in Activism, Politics, Polling, Ron Paul  |  Comments Off

Another analysis of the Iowa Straw poll appears at the American Chronicle in this opinion piece by R. Kent Nowviskie entitled, “High Fructose Hijinx – Sugardaddy Romney and the Iowa Straw Poll“.

It’s worth a read if for no other reason than I agree with it completely.  :-)

It’s Not A Joke, It’s Freedom

When introducing Ron Paul for his speech at the Iowa Straw Poll this weekend Laura Ingraham made an attempt at humor to describe the vocal Ron Paul supporters cheering him as they marched to their seats. She said, “The inmates have left the asylum.”

This is just the latest example of several main stream media types who have attempted to minimize and ridicule Ron Paul and his supporters. Why do they do this?

Ron Paul Support: A Microcosm of the Future America

August 13th, 2007 2:00 am  |  by  |  Published in Activism, Election, Maven Commentary, Politics, Ron Paul  |  Comments Off

I’m usually a pragmatist and borderline cynic, but there’s something these days that has devoured me with an idealistic sense of overwhelming hope. This something has taken my apathy out back and shot it, putting me out of my own misery. This something is the Ron Paul grassroots movement.

Recently I’ve been pondering what my old cynical self deems impossible: A Ron Paul Presidency. In a way the Ron Paul support movement itself gives us a plausible answer as to what America would be like in the Constitutional hands of Ron Paul. Could the self-determination and activism of Ron Paul support be a microcosm of the future America?

I was floored by this article: Credit Bubbles

August 12th, 2007 12:52 am  |  by  |  Published in Banking, Economics, Federal Reserve, Social Security  |  Comments Off

With the recent printing of $35 billion out of thin air by the Fed, I became very interested (again) in learning as much as I can about the economy and how it relates to Fed decisions.

I was pointed to a web site called The Daily Reckoning a few days ago and I finally found the time to read it. One of the articles I stumbled upon was one called: “Credit Bubbles: Wealth Creation and Asset Inflation”.

I’ve been trying to educate myself about the Federal Reserve system and how they control money for the past few months. I learned the basics from a few documentaries found online, but I wanted to know more. I wanted to know more about the details and effects of the Fed manipulating the money supply and interest rates. In short, I wanted to know how it applied to me.

This article is a bit long and takes a bit of cerebral effort to read, but once I read it I was in awe of its seemingly irrefutable conclusions. If you are at all interested in the housing market and how it relates to the overall economy I highly recommend finding a quiet place to sit down and…

Read “Credit Bubbles: Wealth Creation and Asset Inflation”

I now must find time to read more from this site.
