How To Tell If You’ve Had Too Much Politics

Just about now you, as an American voter, are reaching critical political mass. Pummeled by incessant TV, radio, and newspaper ads, and deluged by dinnertime taped phone calls you want to kill the next person who brings up the election.

Then, again, you may have crossed over into that Zombieland of voting in which you can’t seem to get enough of the heady stuff. While the former state is normal, here’s how to tell if you’ve really had too much politics for the season and are badly in need of a vacation or at least electroshock therapy:

1) You know Sarah Palin’s dog’s favorite color.
2) You can recite the Hatch Act from memory.
3) You call polling companies and beg to be polled.
4) You can’t wait for TV shows to end so you can start enjoying the campaign commercials.
5) You’ve come to believe that Rand Paul is a type of gold coin.
6) You can spell Ben Bernanke’s name forward AND backwards.
7) Your shirt has color-coded campaign buttons with Republicans on the right side, Democrats on the left, and Libertarians down the middle.
8) You agree with every political view no matter who holds it yet become irritated when someone refuses to have an opinion.
9) Your Favorites menu on your computer browser is full of campaign websites.
10) You can’t be reached on the Internet because your e-mail account is glutted with campaign spam.
11) You’ve got a space reserved in front of the early voting place so that you can get there before midnight.
12) You’ve got a tattoo of your favorite candidate on your shoulder and you were the tattoo artist.
13) You’ve painted half your car red and the other half blue.
14) You invite campaign flyer distributors into your house for coffee and cookies and to have a heart-to-heart.
15) You’ve removed the heads from your bobblehead collection and replaced them with leading candidates.
16) You straighten up campaign signs at intersections.
17) Your alarm clock has campaign ads to awaken you.
18) You call radio talk shows just to hear them breathe.
19) Instead of Fantasy Football, you play Fantasy Politics.
20) Your friends avoid you because all you want to talk about is the latest polling numbers.
21) When you dream, it’s of filling out your ballot.
22) Your iPod is full of recorded campaign speeches.
23) You’re disappointed when, after the phone rings, it’s only your mother calling and not a pre-recorded message from a local candidate.
24) You burned out your TIVO recording late-night political shows.
25) Your car has so many campaign stickers on it, it makes two miles less per gallon.

Lew Rockwell talks voting, Ron Paul, and libertarianism with Ron Smith

September 24th, 2009 5:37 pm  |  by  |  Published in Activism, Big Government, Commentary, Free Market, government spending, Lew Rockwell, Liberty, Politics, Radio, Ron Paul  |  5 Responses

Lew Rockwell was on the radio with Ron Smith, a fixture on WBAL in Baltimore for many years. In a 14 minute interview they discussed numerous topics ranging from Ron Paul, libertarianism, and more.

I only take small issue with Rockwell’s disdain for the act of voting. He says that no election is ever decided by a single vote as he dismisses voting as a “waste of time”. I have to agree that in most cases this is true, but I can point to one case in my own district where a single vote did decide an election. Of course the smaller the election the more there is a chance of this happening.

In this case there were 888 votes cast. I posted about it when it occurred in the local election in November of 2007. Here is a screenshot of the results:

One Vote Counts

So, in some rare cases… well at least one case. A single vote does count.

But I digress… Listen to an excellent discussion between Lew Rockwell and Ron Smith below.

Rand Paul was interviewed on Fox Radio’s Brian and The Judge show this morning. Once again Rand demonstrates his ability to be a future leader for the Republican Party. The big question is will the neo-con wing of the GOP welcome or shun him?

Ron Paul on with Judge Napolitano today

April 17th, 2009 9:17 am  |  by  |  Published in Andrew Napolitano, Liberty, Radio, Ron Paul  |  1

Ron Paul will be on with Judge Andrew Napolitano today at 11:06am Eastern. The Judge is doing his radio show by himself this week. It airs from 9am – Noon (Eastern).

You can listen to the show online via foxnewsradio.com and on satellite radio on Sirius 145 and XM 168.

I always love when the Judge flies it solo on his radio show. It’s almost like watching Freedom Watch for 3 hours a day. We’ll try to capture the audio of the Ron Paul interview segment and post it a bit later.

Who called Ron Paul the Thomas Jefferson of our day?

April 14th, 2009 9:07 am  |  by  |  Published in Activism, Andrew Napolitano, Liberty, Radio, Ron Paul  |  Comments Off

Who gave that title to Ron Paul? The answer is (of course) Judge Andrew Napolitano, the host of the weekly freedom-loving web show Freedom Watch. I always love when the Judge hosts his radio show solo. This week he is doing just that.

Brian and The Judge airs beginning at 9am EST and can be heard at http://www.foxnewsradio.com/ and on Sirius/XM Satellite Radio on channels 145(Sirius) and 168(XM).

Later today we’ll find out the Judge’s guests for Freedom Watch tomorrow, but this morning and every morning all week why not give the Judge a call to promote HR1207, discuss the Tea Party events being held this week, or any other liberty loving topic of note? You can do so at 1-866-408-7669.

Ron Paul on FOX Radio with Brian and The Judge Today

Ron Paul was interviewed on Brian and The Judge on FOX Radio this morning. This interview is classic Dr. Paul. Very interesting topics were discussed. Ron Paul was able to describe why he doesn’t like talking about “trickle down or trickle up” economics, but instead wants the financial conversation to focus on freedom and individual liberty.

Brian Kilmeade suggests that if John McCain offered Ron Paul some type of deal that it was possible that McCain could have won the election. Dr. Paul thinks otherwise.

This is definitely worth a listen.

The interview lasts about 11 minutes. Listen below.

Ron Paul Jr. BJ Lawson on Glenn Beck Radio

October 31st, 2008 3:29 pm  |  by  |  Published in Activism, Bailouts, Big Government, BJ Lawson, Constitution, Election, government spending, Liberty, Media, Radio, Ron Paul  |  10 Responses

The man some call Ron Paul Jr. was a guest on Glenn Beck’s radio show this morning for a few minutes. I must say that when I hear Lawson speak I get those same freedom feelings dancing around in my belly that I got much of last year listening to Ron Paul during his primary campaign.

Lawson is able to get the word out about his website and win Glenn Beck and his audience over by letting everyone know he stands up for the Second Amendment and continues to hand out pocket Constitutions while campaigning. Lawson has David Price (his long time incumbent opponent) running scared. I am not the only liberty lover pulling for a Lawson victory on Tuesday. Listen to Lawson on Glenn Beck below.
