Defending Empire

I am continuously amazed how quickly people attempt to defend politicians, regardless of the hypocrisy and sheer lunacy displayed by political figures. What have these politicians done to earn your trust? What makes them worth defending? We’re led to believe that without these cherished political behemoths starting new wars, torturing people and ignoring the rule […]

Happy Birthday, PATRIOT Act

Warrantless searches worked so well for the British Empire in the 1700s, we just had to give it another try in the 21st century. October 26, 2011, marks the tenth year of the USA PATRIOT Act’s existence. Do you feel any safer? [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GM_sef3tYuo[/youtube]    

Meeting Gatewood Galbraith at Berea College

Gatewood Galbraith is an independent candidate for governor of Kentucky. He has received the endorsements of Willie Nelson, the Green Party, and the Constitution Party.

The Assassination of an American Teenager

Where do we draw the line? When do we stand up and say enough is enough? When will we see the world through the eyes of those whose lands we forcefully manipulate, invade, and occupy?

I may be a broke college student, but I’m donating everything I can to Ron Paul in terms of money, time, and energy. I’m tired of the wars, I’m tired of the bailouts, and I’m tired of the government thinking I work for them (not the other way around). Time to bring true change to […]

They Knew in 1912

Occupy Wall Street, take notice. People knew the dangers of the Federal Reserve in 1912, one year before its implementation by Woodrow Wilson in 1913. No more funding of preemptive wars, no more corporate welfare, no more monetary inflation; End the Fed. Originally found here.

It’s Time for Substance

In the 2012 presidential election corny phrases like, “Let’s get America working again,” or, “Jobs, jobs, jobs,” are passed off as well-reasoned statements. Is this how the American people want to be treated? Are we so shallow that we can’t even spend a little time to educate ourselves why the economy is in miserable shape, […]
