    If you want to know how the bureaucracy works this video is for you. We should be discussing the contents of this video. No it's not another Ron Paul video but it does bring up unknown facts about the FED.
  • Congress May Bring Back The Draft

    08/01/2010 7:48:14 PM PDT · by citizenredstater9271 · 144 replies · 13+ views
    On July 15, 2010, Democrat Charles Rangle introduced a piece of legislation into Congress that would basically reinstate the draft (compulsory military service). H.R. 5741 will give the President of the United States the power to require all American citizens between the ages of 18 and 42 to perform either military service or civilian service in the interests of "national defense and homeland security." It would also give him the power to require citizens to join the military during wartime to meet the manpower needs of the military. In February 2009, President Barack Obama asked Congress to send him a...
  • Economic Reductionism is Good

    fringeelements | July 08, 2010 The fashion is to say "economics can't explain all political issues" - which is an absurd idea based on a simplistic view of economics. Economics can explain all purposeful action toward a given goal. What of these goals and how do they come about? That's the realm of psychology. But beyond that, economic reductionism FTW. No need to speak of "social forces" independent of economics as if King Ludd is a giant cell and men are his organelles. Solving problems by breaking them down into individual actors... is good.

    The White House says it didn't try to stop news organizations who had access to secret U.S. military documents from publishing reports about the leaks. WikiLeaks posted 91,000 classified documents on Afghanistan Sunday. The organization's founder says he still has thousands more Afghan files to post.

    Ron Paul explains why we need to put our money in gold and how we can do that as America slowly drifts towards socialism. I'm fully aware I can't change any one's mind about Dr. Paul on FR but please listen to this video you might agree with some of what he says.

    The United States State Department has announced to the Palestinian Authority/Palestinian Liberation Organization Mission representative in the United States that its status will be upgraded from a 'bureau' to that of a "general delegation' and that this change will allow the office in which the representation is situated to fly the PLO, now also the Palestine Authority, flag at its entrance. The upgrading, besides allowing the flag to be flown, also grants certan privileges to the delegation staff, such as diplomatic immunity, although it is not equal to embassy status. The PLO's chief representative in the United States, Maen Areikat,...

  • Seizing BP Assets: Compounding One Disaster with Another

    07/07/2010 9:57:22 PM PDT · by citizenredstater9271 · 12 replies ^ | July 2, 2010 | Carl F. Horowitz
    The April 20 explosion and subsequent round-the-clock oil spill from a BP-operated deepwater drilling rig in the Gulf of Mexico 40 miles off the Louisiana coast has generated justifiable anger across the nation. It's also generated calls for strict sanctions against BP, the most drastic of which is confiscation of all company assets. The front line of this campaign is an ad hoc organization calling itself "Seize BP," which already has organized dozens of rallies across the country. Its mission mirrors its name: persuade the Obama administration to seize assets of the British-based oil company and use the proceeds for...

    Rasmussen ^ | 7/6/2010 | Rasmussen
    The one who was to heal the nation while solving all manner of problems has instead distinguished himself as the president who had the lowest first-year approval rating in history, consistently scoring in negative double digits (and frequently as low as -21) on the Rasmussen Approval Index within 10 months of being sworn into office. Rasmussen's political polling data are far and above the undisputed industry leader in accuracy.

    Who agrees and who disagrees with Dr. Paul? I would like to see income tax abolished (it is socialism light) but what say other Freepers? Watch the video of course.
