” Few people are more passionate about preserving individual liberty than Jeff Frazee. The founder of Young American’s for Liberty (YAL) got his start in politics as an intern, and later a campaign advisor for Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX).“[I] saw a real big potential, and a lot of young people being interested in Congressman Paul and his ideas,” Frazee said. “My interest had always been starting an organization for liberty and getting young people involved in the political process.”This led Frazee to form YAL, a pro-liberty group whose mission is to “identify, educate, train, and mobilize youth activists committed to ‘winning on principle’.”YAL has quickly grown in popularity since it was founded in 2008 and currently has more than 300 chapters and more than 26,000 youth activists nationwide.”—
” 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 .
” I’ve always avoided reporting on the Federal Reserve. I know it’s more important than much of the stuff I cover, but it’s so boring. How can I succeed on TV reporting on the Fed? Fed chairs even work at being dull.
Alan Greenspan said he tried to be obscure because he didn’t want to spook markets. He called his obfuscation “Fedspeak.” It’s a far cry from the clarity of his language — and principles — when he was young and a disciple of libertarian Ayn Rand.
Outgoing Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke and his likely successor, Janet Yellen, are almost as boring.
But we should watch what they do. The Fed can destroy your savings and your future. The current crew of Fed bureaucrats has raised the Fed’s balance sheet to a stunning 4 trillion dollars.
As Sen. Rand Paul‘s father, retired congressman Ron Paul, put it, “No secret cabal of government officials should have the authority to create money out of thin air.” “
Ron Paul Defines Libertarianism – Charlie Rose Interview (Full)
Published on Sep 19, 2013
” Charlie Rose: “Define what libertarianism means to you” – Ron Paul: “The word I best describe it is something not a lot of people use. I call it non-intervention.”
Charlie Rose: “Non-intervention in personal life, non-intervention in foreign policy, non-intervention in…”
Ron Paul: “There it is. Because it’s sort of tells you what a conservative, a libertarian, constitutionalist, and liberal, classical liberalism has been used it’s closely aligned with libertarianism, but non-intervention as you say. I don’t want to interfere in your personal life. The one rule is you can’t hurt another person, that’s when government’s necessary.” “
“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 .

Chris Kyle’s death seems to confirm that “he who lives by the sword dies by the sword.” Treating PTSD at a firing range doesn’t make sense

Worldwide – U.S. Ranks 1st in Gun Ownership and 28th in Gun Homicide, Ron Paul says Resent and Resist
” As SLN reported, “However, according to the CATO Institute and FBI statistics, when guns were banned in the UK, armed robbery rates jumped 40%. In Australia, armed robbery rates increased 40%. The statistics also show that the majority of robberies in the UK happen when people are home, which is 50% of the time.”
Interestingly, Britain’s violent crimes rate is 2,034 per 100,000 people compared to the United States’ 466 violent crimes per 100,000 people.
A prominent figure in the Liberty movement and a man who helped Rep. Massie find his path to D.C., former Congressman Ron Paul spoke out against the idea of gun grabbing on Wednesday during the Alex Jones show. Paul said regarding Obama signing a gun-related executive order, “Well, it should go without saying, he’s has gone way too far. It should also go without saying, he’s acting with the use of illegal violence.”
The former Rep. detailed, “I’ve always assumed the line in the sand will be drawn, if the federal agent marches in, unannounced and they say, well give me your gun and give me your gold. I don’t think we’ll do that, calmly. I think the American people will highly resent it and resist.” “

Step One In Getting Our Country Back
“The issue which has swept down the centuries and which will have to be fought sooner or later is the people versus the banks.”
“… we conclude that the [Federal] Reserve Banks are not federal … but are independent privately owned and locally controlled corporations… without day to day direction from the federal government.”
9th Circuit Court
Enough with a totally unaccountable cabal of banksters running this country into the ground and manipulating our government and economy for it’s own private gain .
” Banks have done more injury to the religion, morality, tranquility, prosperity, and even wealth of the nation than they can have done or ever will do good.”
” On the very first day of the 113th Congress, Georgia Congressman Paul Broun introduced legislation for a complete audit of the Federal Reserve System. This legislation will bring transparency to the central bank’s covert operations. After passing the House of Representatives in 2012 with bipartisan support, the original Audit the Fed bill was dead-on-arrival in the Senate thanks to Harry Reid and the rest of the establishment. They chose to stand with secret bailouts for the world’s most profitable companies, foreign banks, and even foreign governments instead of the people. “
“The system of banking [is] a blot left in all our Constitutions, which, if not covered, will end in their destruction… I sincerely believe that banking institutions are more dangerous than standing armies; and that the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity… is but swindling futurity on a large scale.”
This exactly what the founders warned against when they spoke of the evils of national banks .
” The bold effort the present (central) bank had made to control the government … are but premonitions of the fate that await the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution or the establishment of another like it.”

” Noting that “secession itself is a red herring,” Jones said what the nation really needs “is a new Declaration of Independence…”
“The purest American values, the purest essence of the United States was secession from a corrupt, distant corporate empire backed up by military force,” he said. “We are recaptured by the progeny; by the literal and figurative offspring of those robber barons 235 years ago. We are at the crossroads, and the entire enemy battle plan that we’ve reverse engineered is designed to suppress states’ rights movements. Because the states created the federal government and it is not their right, it is not their duty, we the people that make the states, it is an absolute imperative beyond duty. It is survival that we secede from the New World Order that has conquered us through fraud; that we declare the fraud null and void and then reconstitute the Republic with a new Congress of the several states.”
Jones’ appeal comes as the legislatures in several states, most in the Midwest and South, work to nullify all or parts of federal laws, including the health reform measure popularly known as “Obamacare,” and, in the case of Texas, invasive pre-travel searches by the Transportation Security Administration.
‘This is the time for dedication’
Jones said the country’s “new Declaration of Independence” cannot wait “until July 4th.”
“The system has prepared for this; sold Obama as the next Lincoln, and said any state’s right movement is civil war. Glenn Beck is saying it’s illegal and civil war. It is the essence of America. And there’s a new Ron Paul video he put out this morning at Infowars.com that we just posted where he says that secession is the ultimate American value.”
He continued: “America is already gone. We must recognize that, pull out the New World Order, prosecute the criminals that have hijacked the Republic that don’t flee, and then reconstitute the Republic. But we must first separate or die to then rejoin. … This is time for dedication. This is time for commitment, and the spiritual decision to sign your John Hancock in your words and your deeds towards the restoration of our Republic and putting us back on the course of liberty and justice for all.” “

” 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.” “
“Floor fight: Grass-roots activists battle attempt to rig GOP convention delegate rules Updated: Party bosses offer olive branch; “tense,” “dynamic” situation; Palin: “direct attack on the grass-roots””
“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.”
” 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 : “
While we seldom share much sentiment with Dennis Kucinich , in this case we stand on common ground .
” Ohio Democratic Rep. Dennis Kucinich thanked Texas Republican Rep. Ron Paul for his “diligence” in advocating for a bill that would
give the Government Accountability Office the authority to fully audit the Federal Reserve, adding that it is “baloney” to suggest Congress
cannot “touch the Fed.”
The legislation moved through the House Oversight Committee and Government Reform Committee on Wednesday. ”
This is an issue that should have been dealt with ages ago . The FED needs to audited and brought to heel immediately .
“ “When Congress created the Fed in 1913,.Congress delegated specific tasks to it, and Congress remains constitutionally-obligated to conduct oversight over the Fed as a result. The Fed should not be permitted to operate in the dark without oversight by Congress and
accountability to the people.” ”
Support this bill . Call your congressman . Make some noise .
How does one get a job being wrong all the time ? Is that a prerequisite for being a Times columnist ? Oh , I guess pomposity is among the requirements as well .
“Congressman Ron Paul, in a rare head-to-head broadcast confrontation, went up against the Nobel laureate in economics Paul Krugman in an open debate over monetary policy. It was broadcast on the Bloomberg Television, moderated by Trish Regan. Not to put too fine a point on it, Ron Paul won the exchange, so much so that the cameras and moderators just drifted away from Mr. Krugman without so much as a fare-thee-well and left the field to the hero of the campaign for honest money.”
