” In a video released Thursday on the Ron Paul Channel, an online network the libertarian started last summer, he calls on supporters to sign the petition in an attempt to bring Snowden home to the US safely before his temporary visa in Russia expires in July.
“Edward Snowden sacrificed his livelihood, citizenship, and freedom by exposing the disturbing scope of the NSA’s worldwide spying program,” he said. “Thanks to one man’s courageous actions, Americans know about the truly egregious ways their government is spying on them.” “
Here is the video of Dr Paul from his website and you can sign the petition here . We highly recommend that you do so .

” If you question Vince Vaughn about his political views, he’ll tell you he’s a proud conservative – and he doesn’t care what the liberals in Hollywood think.
In a telephone interview with Adam Carolla, Hollywood A-list actor Vince Vaughn made a bold statement about his conservative values. When Carolla directly asked him, “Do you count yourself a conservative?” Vaughn didn’t hesitate, he quickly responded, “I do, yeah…I mean I’m very supportive of Ron Paul, but I’ve always been more conservative than not.”
“I really like Ron Paul…I think that when you get older, you just get less trust in the government running anything. And you start to realize…when you go back and start to look at the Constitution and the principles of liberty, the real purpose of government is to protect the individual’s right to, you know, sort of think and pursue what they have interest in,” Vaughn replied.”
With idiots like Tom Cruise getting all the press and money and dominating the entertainment industry , it is easy to forget about an actor who has a head on his shoulders . Thanks , Vince Vaughn for providing the lone voice from the wilderness .
“My understanding is that espionage means giving secret or classified information to the enemy. Since Snowden shared information with the American people, his indictment for espionage could reveal (or confirm) that the US Government views you and me as the enemy.”
Dr Paul makes the point we have been arguing for some time now . The government views the people as it’s enemy and we must take the same view if we are to prevail .
” The free market economy has been taken for granted by the American people as the dynamic generator of the nation’s vast wealth. Our capitalistic economy is currently being “fundamentally transformed” into a central government-dominated system, threatening the vibrance that has made America the land of opportunity. The following ‘thirteen genius quotes’ display the moral underpinnings of the market economy and dispel some common misconceptions. “

” “All other persons and groups in society (except for acknowledged and sporadic criminals such as thieves and bank robbers) obtain their income voluntarily: either by selling goods and services to the consuming public, or by voluntary gift (e.g., membership in a club or association, bequest, or inheritance). Only the State obtains its revenue by coercion, by threatening dire penalties should the income not be forthcoming. That coercion is known as ‘taxation,’ although in less regularized epochs it was often known as ‘tribute.’ Taxation is theft, purely and simply even though it is theft on a grand and colossal scale which no acknowledged criminals could hope to match.” — Murray Rothbard “
“The odds that Ron Paul would win the Republican Presidential primary this year were always pretty slim. But you wouldn’t
know that from the overheated response one student supporter at Auburn University in Alabama got when he dared to place a sign supporting Paul’s candidacy in his
dorm room window last fall. Perhaps fearing that a wave of Ron Paul mania would sweep uncontrollably over Auburn,
the sign was only up for three hours before officials demanded that student Eric Philips remove the poster from his window, ostensibly for safety reasons. Philips recounts the shameful saga in a new video
from the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), where I work. “
“The one missing element in the news stories just put up in respect of the quantitative easing by the Federal Reserve is the comment issued by the one of the individuals who sits directly above Chairman Bernanke in the constitutional pecking order. This is the chairman of the House subcommittee on domestic monetary policy, Ron Paul. He’s none too pleased with the direction in which the Fed is going. “The Fed’s only solution for every problem is to print more money and provide more liquidity,” Dr. Paul said in a statement today. “Mr. Bernanke and Fed governors appear not to understand that our current economic malaise resulted directly because of the excessive credit the Fed already pumped into the system.” “
“This past Friday, the RNC’s Convention Rules Committee voted – after several contentous votes – to change the party’s rules to allow future presidential candidates to have veto power over who can be delegates from any state – in other words, take power away from the grassroots and their ability to elect fellow conservatives as delegates.
This represents a brazen move by several Washington Beltway consultants and party insiders to diminish the power and influence of conservatives over the party.”
Audit the Fed: House Decisively Approves Ron Paul Bill
” Wednesday, the 25th of July, 2012 will be remembered by monetary policy conservatives
from sea to shining sea for its incredible significance. While many could disagree with Ron Paul supporters, one cannot deny their
ferocious commitment to the Constitution, personal liberty, non-intrusive foreign policy, and especially their desire to liberate the US Dollar from the control of a private banking interest, otherwise known as ‘The Fed’.
On the 25th, Ron Paul’s ‘Audit the Fed’ bill finally passed with massive approval from the US House of Representatives with 327-98. This
is no slight win by the margin; this was an incredibly decisive victory, showing the heart of many in the US government. The representatives
of the American people want to take a look inside the shadowy rooms and dust off the books of the Federal Reserve Fractional BankingSystem. Stephen Dinan of the Washington Times reports : “
