Albert Einstein: The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

Jay "HoggenHammer" Howell

As the first of the presidential debates, my mind weighs heavy. It seems as though both parties have decided to completely ignore their records. The differences between both parties gets smaller and smaller everyday it seems. Both parties push an interventionalist foreign policy, and a Keynesian approach to economic policy. Both parties also have pushed the NDAA on us, but if you’re reading this you probably already know that.
The definition of insanity according to Albert Einstein is ” doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

So why do we, as Americans, continue down this destructive path? Are we so lazy that we will no longer seek out the truth? Or do we just have blind faith in our leaders?

When Obama was elected, he promised he would end the war in Iraq, and eventually end the war in Afghanistan as well. If you’re keeping…

I’d vote for Ron Paul 2016. But in the mean time, Doug wonders what our best options are.

Post Ron Paul: Where do we go now?

Don’t assume that Ron Paul is going to ride off into the sunset, with his cowgirl, Carol, at his side.  He made it clear during his light hearted exchange with Jay Leno that he isn’t finished with us.  And I, for one, am not finished with him either.

If Romney wins, Senator Rand Paul’s trajectory would be on hold and in 2016, Ron Paul, the father, would be the best primary challenger to a Republican establishment president, owned by the FED and the few.

Who else would have the guts to do it?  And the media, who under normal circumstance would pan him, might let him have more than 89 seconds, just to have some fun – and some ratings – in an otherwise boring re-nomination process.  Another run would help educate even more and fatten the Liberty Movement for Senator Rand…

What’s Ron Paul Planning to Announce on the Tonight Show? Prison Planet

What’s Ron Paul Planning to Announce on the Tonight Show?

For liberty lovers and freedom fighters, the battle to get their grassroots constitutionalist candidate nationally-recognized has been arduous.

Whats Ron Paul Planning to Announce on the Tonight Show? 150808672.jpg.CROP.rectangle3 large

At every step, mainstream media attempted to censor information regarding the revolutionary Republican candidate nominee, in some cases even censoring the utterance of his name.

The candidate was even ousted from his speaking role at the Republican National Convention last week, where his delegates were thrown to the nosebleed seats of the Tampa Bay Times Forum, and where he faced, still, further persecution as the Romney campaign’s lawyer, Ben Ginsberg, presented a vote to change party rules concerning the binding of delegates, the outcome of which was laterrevealed to have been predetermined.

While the efforts made to secure the Republican nomination were tremendous, many Ron Paul supporters have had to face the reality that Paul will not be Obama’s GOP opponent in 2012.

But on the heels of defeat, a new hope has sprung forward in the form of a Tonight Show appearancewhere it is rumored that Paul is planning to make a “special announcement.”

His appearance follows a whirlwind roller-coaster ride from little-known congressman to national public figure largely responsible for motivating younger generations of activists, and older generations alike, to speak out against the real growing threat of an overreaching centralized government.

So, what does Congressman Paul plan to announce tonight? The Internet is abuzz with rumors.

Some think Paul is planning to announce a run as a third party candidate, assuming the Libertarian Party ticket currently held by Former Governor of New Mexico Gary Johnson. Johnson himself threw his weight behind Paul earlier this year after he dropped out of the running for the Republican nomination.

Late last month, Johnson attended the grassroots-organized Paul Fest in Tampa where he asked the audience to recall his endorsement of Paul as his running mate during his own run at the GOP nomination: “If I thought Ron Paul was going to get the nomination I would have not done this and I would have let him get the nomination…I would be along with you supporting Dr. Paul right now,” Johnson told attendees at Paul Fest.

However, Libertarian Party chairman Geoffrey Neale squelched this possibility in an email he sent to members of the Libertarian National Committee Saturday. Neale stated: “First, we have no indication that Ron Paul is interested in or would be willing to pursue such a path. Without such an indication, this really remains an intellectual exercise.” Additionally, according to Neale, if by some chance Paul was able to become the Libertarian candidate, he would risk losing “ballot access in a number of states.”

Paul does have some history with the LP. In 1988, Paul ran as a Libertarian party candidate, however, the differences between him and Johnson seem too radical to make the rumored party change a real prospect. The Daily Caller explains, “Paul and Johnson do have some political differences. Johnson vocally supports access to abortion and same-sex marriage, and is comfortable with limited U.S. military intervention for humanitarian purposes overseas.”

Another theory is that Paul is planning to endorse a candidate, widely assumed to be Gary Johnson, however, the Daily Caller today reported a conversation with Jesse Benton, Paul’s national campaign chairman, in which he stated that Paul “will not endorse Gary Johnson.”

Is an unexpected, unprecedented underdog challenge in the cards for Paul? Possibly, but even if he somehow makes the ballot as Libertarian candidate, an even bigger fight manifests itself in controlling the polls and ballot boxes.

Whatever Paul’s speech entails, Leno’s ratings are sure to be high tonight as a majority of Ron Paul supporters plan to tune in. In a few hours, we should all know what the fuss is about.

Here’s Ron Paul’s 2007 interview with Jay Leno:

What do you think Paul’s announcement will pertain to? Sound off below…

Should Pro-Life Conservatives and LIbertarians consider voting for Johnson? Yes, I think they should at least consider it.

Honey and Locusts

In yesterday’s post I displayed my results of a quiz that identifies the presidential candidate that best matches your answers to a set of questions. Not surprisingly, my number one match was Ron Paul. Also not surprisingly, coming in at #2 was Gary Johnson.

The quiz stated that “I side 98% with Ron Paul”. While I’m not certain I’m quite that ideologically aligned with him, my blogging history should tell you that the quiz pegged my pick pretty accurately. But then it said I sided 96% with Gary Johnson, the Libertarian Party’s candidate for president.

Though, unlike Paul, I haven’t written much of anything about Johnson on here, I should say that I do like him. I agree with him on a great many things. On the quiz, his answers and Ron Paul’s were virtually identical on the vast majority of questions, which explains why the margin of difference between…

It is truly unfortunate that we have to play their game to make any progress. Being that as it is, let’s get Gary into the Presidential Debates.

Georgia For Gary Johnson 2012

On Monday, August 20, 2012, Gov. Gary Johnson sent the following letter to the Executive Director, the Co-Chairmen, and the Board of Directors of the Commission on Presidential Debates.

The Commission on Presidential Debates began in 1987 by the Democratic and Republican parties to establish the way that presidential election debates are run between presidential candidates.

 

INCLUSION IN THE PRESIDENTIAL DEBATES

 

To the Commission on Presidential Debates,

I am writing to request that the National Commission on Presidential Debates reconsider your current – and exclusionary – requirements for participation in this Fall’s all-important Presidential and Vice-Presidential debates.

I am well aware of the history and genesis of the Commission, including the reality that it was created largely by the respective national leadership of the Democrat and Republican Parties. While I respect and understand the intention to provide a reasonable and theoretically nonpartisan structure for the presidential debate process…
