Get High for Ron Paul

That's right, It's the Ron Paul Revolution Blimp!

Do I get to fly in the blimp if I donate?

Anyone who donates $25 or more will be entered into a raffle of twenty tickets to ride the blimp. Each ticket will include a 1 day flight on the blimp. You must provide your own transportation to the blimp wherever it may be located. An individual who donates the maximum amount of $5,000 will receive 3 days of flying on the Ron Paul Blimp. There is a total of 12 seats and 100 flying hours so that equals 1,200 flying hours or 200 individual days.

• $25 or more donation enters you into a raffle drawing for 1 of 20 tickets. (6 flying hours or 1 day)*

• $5,000 donation gets you 3 flying days (18 hours) guaranteed + you are entered into the drawing.for additional tickets.

• If there are more flying days left and not many 5k pledgers we will just have more 1 day tickets in the drawing because we know how hard some of you work to promote Ron Paul and maybe just do not have the funds but would really like the opportunity to ride the Ron Paul Blimp. Having these extra drawings will increase your chance of you winning a ticket!

* The raffle will be webcast live. It will show every single name actually being written on paper and then picked from a hat without cutting the camera to ensure there is no fraud (setting an example for our upcoming elections).

Ron Paul Ad competition - Something Big

Remembering Aaron Russo

Gary Franchi, National Director for Restore the Republic requested some pictures of Aaron Russo in action.

I'll never forget the time I spent with Aaron in 2004. He was a true inspiration. His passion and vigorous pursuit of liberty were infectious. His legacy lives on in film and in our hearts.

Hillary and Giuliani have endless special interest groups trying to buy a spot at the federal trough. Ron Paul has us. Please dig deep for the future of our country. Victory will be expensive, but it's a bargain compared to price of failure.

The Second Amendment: American’s Guarantee of Freedom by Jacob G. Hornberger

The Supreme Court has agreed to decide the gun-control case arising out of Washington, D.C.’s, ban on handguns. You know — the city in which there are no murders with handguns because criminals obey gun-control laws. (Sarcasm!)The major issue in the case is whether the right to keep and bear arms is an individual right or whether it pertains instead to the National Guard.Hopefully, the Court will bear in mind that the primary purpose of the right to keep and bear arms is so that people will be able to resist violently the tyranny and oppression of their own government. Unfortunately, all too many Americans have lost sight of this, believing that gun ownership is about shooting deer and burglars.

The Real Thanksgiving Story

In the middle of December 1620 the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock, leaving behind the sinfulness of the “old world” to make a “new Jerusalem” in America. Three years later, in November 1623, they had a great feast thanking God for getting them through an earlier famine, and now for a bountiful crop.What had created the earlier famine and then the bountiful crops? The story is told in the diary of Governor Bradford, who was one of the elders of that early Puritan colony.

I Used To Not Be Anti-Cop

Manuel Lora says the police state is making him anti-police, a change of heart from his previously held belief 'that the police had a duty to serve and protect, to care for our property and to keep criminals away.'

Media notices local Ron Paul outreach

Drivers honked their horns and gave the activists thumbs-ups, as the grassroots campaigners braved the brisk weather to chat with residents and hand out various literature to citizens. Many of the placards and posters were hand-made, including one carried by Al Pigeon who supports Paul because the congressman promises to “restore the constitution.”

Feds pull off massive gold heist!

Update 4:13 pm: The FBI in Indianapolis wouldn't confirm or deny anything. They did refer me to:
Sue Ellen Pierce, Public Information Officer in North Carolina (704-338-3120). I left a message.

If there was no raid, wouldn't they be able to say that, without referring me to another state?

This morning I received the email below. I was hoping that it was a sick hoax, but corroborating information is trickling in. The Liberty Dollar website is not taking orders. This appears to be the largest gold heist in modern times and the fed's latest attempt to trample our rights. It is a truly sickening development.

Dear Liberty Dollar Supporters:

I sincerely regret to inform you that about 8:00 this morning a dozen FBI and Secret Service agents raided the Liberty Dollar office in Evansville.

For approximately six hours they took all the gold, all the silver, all the platinum and almost two tons of Ron Paul Dollars that where just delivered last Friday. They also took all the files, all the computers and froze our bank accounts.

We have no money. We have no products. We have no records to even know what was ordered or what you are owed. We have nothing but the will to push forward and overcome this massive assault on our liberty and our right to have real money as defined by the US Constitution. We should not to be defrauded by the fake government money.

But to make matters worse, all the gold and silver that backs up the paper certificates and digital currency held in the vault at Sunshine Mint has also been confiscated. Even the dies for mint the Gold and Silver Libertys have been taken.

This in spite of the fact that Edmond C. Moy, the Director of the Mint, acknowledged in a letter to a US Senator that the paper certificates did not violate Section 486 and were not illegal. But the FBI and Services took all the paper currency too.

The possibility of such action was the reason the Liberty Dollar was designed so that the vast majority of the money was in specie form and in the people’s hands. Of the $20 million Liberty Dollars, only about a million is in paper or digital form.

I regret that if you are due an order. It may be some time until it will be filled... if ever... it now all depends on our actions.

Everyone who has an unfulfilled order or has digital or paper currency should band together for a class action suit and demand redemption. We cannot allow the government to steal our money! Please don’t let this happen!!! Many of you read the articles quoting the government and Federal Reserve officials that the Liberty Dollar was legal. You did nothing wrong. You are legally entitled to your property. Let us use this terrible act to band together and further our goal – to return America to a value based currency.

Please forward this important Alert... so everyone who possess or use the Liberty Dollar is aware of the situation.

Please click HERE to sign up for the class action lawsuit and get your property back!

If the above link does not work you can access the page by copying the following into your web browser.

Thanks again for your support at this darkest time as the damn government and their dollar sinks to a new low.

Great article: Ron Paul distortions and smears

For a long time now, I've heard a lot of people ask: "where are the principled conservatives?" -- meaning those on the Right who are willing to oppose the constitutional transgressions and abuses of the Bush administration without regard to party loyalty. A "principled conservative" isn't someone who agrees with liberals on most issues; that would make them a "principled liberal." A "principled conservative" is someone who aggressively objects to the radicalism of the neocons and the Bush/Cheney assault on our constitution and embraces a conservative political ideology. That's what Ron Paul is, and it's hardly a surprise that he holds many views anathema to most liberals. That hardly makes him a "fruitcake."

Hypocrisy and Cowardice in China and the U.S.

by Jacob G. Hornberger

Members of Congress are upset with Yahoo officials for giving Chinese officials confidential online information about one of their customers in China. The Chinese authorities used the information to send the Yahoo customer to jail for 10 years for engaging in subversive, anti-government activity.

Meanwhile, Congress is talking about the importance of giving immunity to U.S. telecommunication companies for illegally giving U.S. officials confidential online information about their customers in the United States. The U.S. officials say that they needed the secret information to ferret out subversive activity against the U.S. government.

Oh, well, no one ever accused Congress of a lack of hypocrisy.

Yahoo’s general counsel, Michael J. Callahan, said that Yahoo employees had little choice but to comply with the Chinese government’s demands.

Ironically, that’s what the U.S. telecommunication companies are saying as to why they complied with the U.S. government’s demands!

The fact is that all these executives are the par excellence of cowardice. Yahoo does have a choice — stand up for your customers or don’t do business in communist countries. And U.S. companies also have a choice — stand up for your customers and tell the feds to take a hike, even if it means they come after you with a retaliatory indictment, as they did with Qwest, which, unlike Yahoo and the U.S. telecommunications companies, said “No” when the little tyrants came demanding their information.

For decades both the American and Chinese people have loved their big governments, mostly because their big governments take care of them like parents with education, health care, social security, and other forms of welfare. But as we are learning with the Yahoo and U.S. telecommunications scandals, there is big price to pay for big government.

Isn’t it ironic that Americans have the most powerful government in history and the most terrified citizenry in the world? It is not a coincidence. Big government produces small, frightened people. As earlier generations of Americans could attest, small and weak government, on the other hand, results in strong, self-reliant, and courageous people.

CNN's Ron Paul rally coverage (hilarious)

This must be the latest tactic to down-play Ron Paul's success: send in the most idiotic interviewer you can find. This coverage is a testament to what has become of this once respected news source.

Freedom is popular in Philadelphia

Five thousand (or so) freedom lovers packed into Independence Mall to welcome Ron Paul. It was my privilege to work with the grass-roots volunteers that made this the campaign's biggest rally to date. This was definitely my kind of crowd. Not even rain and cold wind couldn't dampen the spirit.

I posted a photo galley of the days events, including the meet-up briefing with Dr. Paul and the post rally after party at Buffalo Billiards.

My friend Henry Whitney posted some pictures and his reflections on the day here.

You can watch Dr. Paul's full address here.

Parents Are Idiots, or So Believes the State

Thank goodness parents are idiots. Otherwise, at least half of the current tax-funded bozos – the so-called public servants whose sole mission is to supplant parental rights and decision-making – would be unemployed, taking their aggressive panhandling to the streets nonetheless. And, we can't have that, can we?Of course, not all parents are idiots. One special class of the omniscient exists; those parents employed by government or associated organizations (can you say teachers unions). These folks are never idiots since they drink from the fountain of enlightenment. The fountain whose source is the never-ending stream of tax dollars, and whose drain is the never-clogged pipeline of bloated salaries.Parents are idiots. Yes, that is a harsh statement. However, from what I read – from what the state and its minions believe, it is absolutely true. Offensive, but true.
