Ron Paul Drops Searing New Anti-Gingrich Ad

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Newt, Republicans, Ron Paul, Video

Looks like the Dr. is stepping up to the plate and calling Newt out on his sketchy, flip-floppy record. With Newt way up in Iowa (even though he just got an office in the state a week ago) and now leading the GOP contenders nationwide, expect all of the other candidates to aim their guns […]

Will it be 2008 all over again?

Ron Paul Talks Republican Party Future

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Libertarian, Republicans, Ron Paul, Video

I usually wouldn’t embed a video of Rachel Maddow’s show, but the following is compelling enough to share. Long story short…abandon the culture wars, embrace real fiscal conservatism and stop being war mongers. Can Libertarianism save the Republican party or will it split it in two? Also, can election laws be reformed to allow a […]

Ron Paul Supporter Detained By TSA For Carrying Cash?

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Law, Missouri, Money, Ron Paul, Video

A truly dumb move by St. Louis airport employees is recorded and shared here by Fox News… Is Missouri’s militia/Ron Paul tie still in full effect? One note, the commentator in the middle who tries to tie this to Obama’s economic policies at the very end was a truly hacky move. He didn’t need to […]

From McClatchy: JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — The Missouri Highway Patrol this week retracted a controversial report on militia activity and will change how such reports are reviewed before being distributed to law enforcement agencies.

Stephen Baldwin V. Ron Paul On Marijuana

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Drugs, Law, Libertarian, Ron Paul, Video

As expected, it’s the “gateway drug” theory v. reality of human existence. Guess which one sounds more credible… I do still love Ron Paul in many ways, and I wish he wouldn’t have been mixed up in that remarkably dumb newsletter operation he was. Because then he’d be a viable third party candidate. Oh well. […]

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Partisan Hacks, Republicans, Ron Paul, Video

“I think it’s pretty sad.” That’s Paul’s response to the idea that Limbaugh is the de facto leader of the Republican party. So will Paul run for President again in 2012? He says he doesn’t think so, but it’s kind of a non-answer at this point. We shall see… (h/t: Below The Beltway) Tweet

This is Danielle Ivory from the American News Project. As another $350 billion goes out the door, ANP looks at one small bailed-out bank. Eagle Bank is having […]
