A PROFILE OF COURAGE: REPRESENTATIVE RON PAUL

QUOTE:

Ron Paul on Blowback

By Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.

Now, I know this is a lot for the tender ears of
Americans to take, who like to think that their
government reflects their own values of faith,
freedom, and friendliness. But here is the point
that libertarians have been trying to hammer home
for many years: the US government is the enemy
of the American people and their values. It is
not peaceful, it is not friendly, it is not motivated
by the Christian faith but rather power and
imperial lust. Continue

Operation Iraq Forever

By Manuel Valenzuela

We are thus stuck in Iraq for the long term, for her
resources and land is needed to sustain and maintain
the America we live in. To believe the empire will
ever leave voluntarily is to live in delusion and fall
prey to the myths of our conditioning. We have made
a deal with the devil, and now we must pay its
consequences. Continue

Nerve Gas May Have Harmed 100,000 U.S. Troops, Scientists Say :

Scientists working with the Defense Department have
found evidence that a low-level exposure to sarin nerve
gas — the kind experienced by more than 100,000
American troops in the Persian Gulf war of 1991 — could
have caused lasting brain deficits in former service members.

But who was right – Rudy or Ron?

By Patrick J. Buchanan:

It was the decisive moment of the South Carolina debate.
Hearing Rep. Ron Paul recite the reasons for Arab and
Islamic resentment of the United States, including 10 years
of bombing and sanctions that brought death to thousands
of Iraqis after the Gulf War, Rudy Giuliani broke format
and exploded: Continue

Ted Rall's Site Among Targets of Pre-GOP Convention Surveillance :

According to the Times, police documents included a
Nov. 13, 2003, digest indicating that posts on Rall's site were
being watched. And the police documents described Rall
as "a nationally known activist figure."

The Secret Government: The Constitution in Crisis:

Host Bill Moyers exposes the inner workings of the secret
government. Though originally broadcast in 1987, it is
even more relevant today. Interviews with respected,
top military, intelligence, and government insiders reveal
both the history and secret objectives.

QUOTE:

No Tears For Falwell:

He was a hateful person who did not serve to inspire
the better nature of America. Instead, he used religion
to propagate hate and discrimination for as long we
anyone can remember. Forgive me if I don’t cry.

THE FOLLOWING UNIQUE MEMBER OF THE FOURH ESTATE:
FOXNEWS...! The world has many dimensions and points of view.
Ignoring excellent sources of news is the key symptom of a known

Evil Empire

Is Imperial Liquidation Possible for America?

By Chalmers Johnson

The United States, today, suffers from a plethora of public
ills. Most of them can be traced to the militarism and
imperialism that have led to the near-collapse of our
Constitutional system of checks and balances. Unfortunately,
none of the remedies proposed so far by American
politicians or analysts addresses the root causes of
the problem. Continue

“The Color of Blood, the Color of Resistance, the Color of Iraq.”

By Mike Whitney

This conflict is perfect-fit for decentralized guerilla cells
that can independently carry out operations on vital
pipelines, tankers and oil facilities. It's a "no-win" situation
for the rest of us. There’s just no way to protect sensitive
infrastructure or resource transport in a free market.
Suppression of the population alone will not work. Continue

QUOTE:

Two Ideologies And A Funeral

By David Michael Green

Progressives must seize this moment of maximal opportunity
to reframe and thus bury conservative ideology. It is worse
than the ideology of stasis. It is worse than the historic
opponent of liberty and equality. It is worse than the
international aggressor or the guardian of those whose
actions are toxic to the public interest. Continue
