Federalist conservatives love shifting power from the federal government to states because they believe that the closer government is to its citizens, the more responsive it is to those citizens. They could not be more wrong.
Ron Paul and Gary Johnson should run together for the Libertarian Party nominations for president and vice president, respectively. That wouldn't guarantee their selection. However, Paul-Johnson would be the strongest ticket the LP could offer. It would be the best alternative available to the Republicrats.
To those who care about such things, the silence of the media about the extraordinary events around Ron Paul's campaign is deafening. Some see conspi...
Opening Day at Washingwood's first and only theme park may be less than year away, according to sources close to the author. I was able to "borrow" a copy of the visitor's guide and provide you a sneak peek!
One listener to my radio show told me that when he voted, he was the sole person at the voting booth, but counted 38 other workers at the station. Most are volunteer, but some are paid to be there.
