Why today asking substantive questions about the very nature of American government is the most practical and necessary politics.

Rep. Grayson introduces a bill to cut separate funding for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and uses the money to eliminate federal income taxes on every American’s first $35,000 of income.

Rand Paul may be Ron Paul’s son, but he is definitely no Ron Paul. A recent press release reveals the truth about this neocon:
Leading United States Senate candidate Rand Paul today criticized the Obama administration’s decision to close the Guantanamo Bay detention center and try terrorism suspects in United States Civil Courts.
Dr. Paul believes in strong national defense and thinks military spending should be our country’s top budget priority. He has also called for a Constitutional declaration of war with Afghanistan.
I met Rand at a Ron Paul campaign event in Dallas a while back. Something about him raised red flags but I wasn’t sure what it was. It appears my instincts were correct.
During last week’s long awaited Audit the Fed hearings, Barney Frank got his panties in a wad when Tom Woods said the following in his opening statement:
I couldn’t imagine any self-respecting American, who isn’t bought and paid for, hesitating for a moment to challenge that kind of independence.
Robert Wenzel reports:
Of course, maybe the problem that Frank had with Woods’ testimony is that it hit a little too close to home. Many of Frank’s donors are clear beneficiaries of Fed money printing activities. The top donor to Frank, so far, in 2009/10 is FMR Corp (the parent name for Fidelity). Others in the top 20 donors for Frank include the American Bankers Association, the American Financial Services Assn, the Independent Community Bankers of America and, one of the greatest beneficiaries of past easy money policy, the National Assn of Home Builders. Did Frank have a guilty conscience and mistakenly think that Woods was referring to him?
Watch Barney’s guilty conscience come to light here.

After reading this review, I decided to go the local Borders to get a copy of the newly released End the Fed. Even though it has been on Amazon’s bestseller list for 26 days so far (currently #1 in three categories), Borders didn’t have it displayed in their bestseller or their new releases sections. No, it was hidden away back in the politics section on the bottom shelf. They are either being told to keep it hidden, or they haven’t figured out how marketing works. Take your pick.
Another disappointment came when they didn’t even have another book I was going to pick up while there.
Borders sucks. It is Amazon from now on for me.
Ron Paul educates MSM morons on basic economics. One of his best interviews.
Great video of a younger Ron Paul telling the truth – as he always has:
