Defending Empire

October 31, 2011 – Comments (0)

DavidKretzmann.com: 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 of law, chaos would erupt in the streets.  [more]

BLACK THIS OUT

October 19, 2011 – Comments (5)

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 this country. #BlackThisOut   [more]

Are we so shallow that we can’t even spend a little time to educate ourselves why the economy is in miserable shape, the dollar is continually devalued, and sensibly consider why the U.S. is seen as an imperialist state overseas? We are not dealing with minor issues; the bulk of the government as we know it is out of control, diminishing liberty domestically and abroad.  [more]
