Will Ron Paul Be the Candidate of the Christian Right?

Laurence M. Vance:

Will Ron Paul Be the Candidate of the Christian Right? - As a Christian, I admire Dr. Paul’s principled stand on many issues, but I don’t believe the leadership of the Christian Right will embrace him. I think they love centralization more than federalism. I think they love political power more than liberty. I think they love war more than peace. I think they love politicians more than principles. I think they love faith-based socialism more than the free market. And I think they love the state more than God Almighty.

One Gun Too Few

Dr. Edwin Vieira, Jr., Ph.D., J.D.:

One Gun Too Few: Virginia Tech has long been a “gun-free zone” for the purposes of its students’ self-defense. In the name of preventing violence, the university has prohibited every student with a Virginia license to carry a concealed firearm from doing so on campus. Surely debatable is whether such a regulation is even legal—given that such a license is a Virginia statutory right of any individual who qualifies for it (and, I should argue, a constitutional right as well) that no mere administrative body has any authority to deny. Beyond dispute is that events have written in blood just how disastrously that idea worked on Monday, 16 April 2007: Apparently everyone among the student body obeyed the edict, except the killer. The regulation perhaps disarmed students who might otherwise have legally been carrying a firearm with which they could have stopped the killer in his tracks. And the police, who were armed and on the campus, proved ineffective, because they were not on the scene.

April Fools Day is Really April 17th

According to one reader, "Monday is 'April Fool's Day.' Here's a question you'd better not ask, or your masters will become red in the face and take a dislike to you: 'What statute makes anyone other than a foreign withholding agent liable for the income tax?' Be prepared for the silence. The income tax is the greatest hoax in history, and yet the yankee government continues to
enforce it.

Folks, these are not serious people. People who build their lives and their governments around lies, and then try to kill the people who expose their lies, are not serious people. They're pathetic, but not serious. Thanks be to God Almighty who delivered my brothers and sisters and my children and my wife and me from their hands."

Lacrosse Players Vindicated!

Finally justice has been done.

The North Carolina State Attorney General has dropped the charges against Reade Seligmann, 21, of Essex Fells, N.J., Collin Finnerty, 20, of Garden City, N.Y., and David Evans, 24.

This is a very rare case of justice being done. It is unfortunate that it has taken so long for it to happen.

Michael Nifong, the prosecutor that brought the charges, needs to be prosecuted for the fraudulent charges that he brought against these young men. Additionally, Duke University needs to be held accountable for its part in the case.

How the US Government Makes YOU Less Secure

The US Government decided to create secure passports and insisted that a good number of other countries do the same thing, using the same technology.

These new passports use RFID technology. The RFID chips store lots of personal information, including a digitized photograph and, in the future, a fingerprint.

When passed in front of a reader, the chip is activated and transmits a radio signal.

Unfortunately these RFID-enhanced e-passports can be easily hacked, attacked, and cloned. There have been several high profile demonstrations of this ability.

The US Government has made Americans and their personal information LESS secure.

Congressman Goodlatte Tries Again

It is interesting to see whom Congressman Goodlatte of Virginia seeks to honor.

The Congressman has reintroduced legislation (
H.R.1664) to give government grants to a yet to be presidential library for President Woodrow Wilson.

Remember that President Wilson gave us the federal income tax and the Federal Reserve.

The Fed has destroyed the value of the dollar by creating excessive amounts of money and credit out of thin air. This has enabled greedy politicians like Congressman Goodlatte to spend foolishly and expand the scope and power of the federal government well beyond its Constitutional boundaries.

Congressman Goodlatte is no friend of taxpayers.

Write your Congressional Representatives and ask them not to support this legislation.

Jury Nullification

The Fully Informed Jury Association provides an important educational service. This association is working to inform citizens of their rights to decide the merits of the law and the application of the law in each case.

Jurors have the power to judge the law.

"The role of our jurors is to protect private citizens from dangerous government laws and actions. Many existing laws erode and deny the rights of the people. Jurors protect against tyranny by refusing to convict harmless people. Our country's founders planned and expected that we, the people, would exercise this power and authority to judge the law as well as the facts every time we serve as jurors. Juries are the last peaceful defense of our civil liberties.".

Unfortunately, few jurors are aware of this power. Many times jurors blindly follow whatever the judge instructs them as to what the law is. This results in the convictions of innocent defendants or defendants that have innocently followed the law without the requisite evil intent.

Inform yourselves as to what your authority is as a juror!

Evil Schemes And The Merchants Of Debt

Hans Schicht

Evil Schemes And The Merchants Of Debt - In the light of the mention on the web of possible nationalization of the US precious metal mines, there are easier ways for a government to get possession of the nations gold rather than by expensive, inefficient, bureaucratic, and cost inflating nationalization.

In order to make good for the "deep storage" bullion of Fort Knox, not accounted for, the most subtle course of action for the US government will be to establish a Federal Gold Bank, under the Federal Reserve, to which all the US gold mines will be obliged to surrender their production against a, by the government established, price.

Internationally, in order to protect their own respective gold hoards in their national interest, most other nations, "guided" by their Central Banks, will most likely replicate the US action. In such way the Central Bank Cartel will keep the bulk of the world's gold stock under its control. Against freely competing gold outside their control the Central Banker's fiat paper scam would not survive for long and they know it!

The Once and Future Republic of Vermont

Ian Baldwin and Frank Bryan:

The Once and Future Republic of Vermont - The winds of secession are blowing
in the Green Mountain State.

Vermont was once an independent republic, and it can be one again. We think the time to make that happen is now. Over the past 50 years, the U.S. government has grown too big, too corrupt and too aggressive toward the world, toward its own citizens and toward local democratic institutions. It has abandoned the democratic vision of its founders and eroded Americans' fundamental freedoms.

Vermont did not join the Union to become part of an empire.
