It’s no secret Ron Paul opposes public education as being unconstitutional and a dismal failure. Recently he announced a solution. It’s genius, really — and perhaps in the nick of time : The Ron Paul Homeschool Curriculum. “Phase 2 of the Revolution,” The Ron Paul Homeschool Curriculum is based on the “history of liberty” and teaches the “biblical principles of self-government.” Paul’s schooling alternative not only bypasses the establishment indoctrination camps mislabeled as public education here in America, it also guarantees his message will live on by creating future generations of liberty-minded young people with a penchant for Austrian Economics.
Ted Cruz: Stand for Principle
(http://www.youtube.com/user/TedCruzforSenate) All across this country people are waking up and saying, “What we are doing is not working. People are hurting tragically and we need to turn this country around.“
There is a better way, a brighter future.
KRISTI KIRK (PATRIOTS AND PAULIES POLITICS & NEWS) – Whatd’ya get when you cross a Libertarian with a Republican? A “liberty Republican?” Or a “Libertarian Republican” perhaps? I prefer, “Republitarian.” But then I think the elephant-porcupine hybrid makes a ‘cute mascot.’
According to the Washington Times, in polite circles, Republicans who borrow a few pages from the Libertarian Party playbook are called “Libertarian leaning” Republicans — which a new poll reveals is now about 41% of the GOP voter base (or closer to 80 percent if you include Republican-leaning Independents.)
Yes, you read it correctly.
Republicans in record numbers are leaning more toward the ideals and principles of Libertarianism — and if you are a fiscally conservative Republican with a moderate social conscience, chances are you’re one of them!
This is a great opportunity, especially for parents who are reluctant to homeschool their children without the guidance of a structured curriculum. And it is great that it’s available free of charge for K-5. This makes it a great resource for unschoolers who may wish to use it not as a daily curriculum but only when the offerings pertain to a particular line of inquiry. –LMN
RON PAUL’S TEXAS STRAIGHT TALK – Last year more US troops died by suicide than died in combat in Afghanistan. More than 20 percent of military personnel deployed to combat will develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Some 32 percent of US soldiers reported depression after deployments. More than 20 percent of active-duty military are on potentially dangerous psychotropic drugs; many are on multiple types. Violent crime among active duty military members increased 31 percent between 2006-2011.
Ron Paul Makes His Case for Liberty on College Campuses
– Molly K. Hooper
Ron Paul plans to deliver speeches on college campuses next year and beyond, continuing his message of liberty and reducing the size of the federal government. In an interview with The Hill, the retired Republican Rep. from Texas clearly indicated that he isn’t ready for the rocking chair.

When All Else Fails Blame the Paulbots
(COMMUNITIES.WASHINGTONTIMES.COM) — Suddenly, Ron Paul’s supporters are relevant. You remember Ron Paul — that old Republican guy who ran for president. His non-interventionist foreign policy ideas were considered kooky during the Republican debates but have since landed him interviews on Fox.
He is the guy who barely cracked 10 percent in the primaries but managed to attract tens of thousands of people, from all walks of life, to his rallies during the primary season. People lined up to hear Paul speak about free-market economics and Constitutional government.
Yet his lively supporters were dismissed as “Paulbots” and “Paultards.”
But if Breitbart.com, Glennbeck.com and others are correct, the Republican nominee, Mitt Romney, may have difficulty defeating Barack Obama if the Paulies don’t fall in line and vote for Mitt.

Paul Ryan Is No Ron Paul
JANE AITKEN (BEDFORD PATCH) – There is much abuzz over Mitt Romney’s announcement naming Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan as his vice presidential running mate.
But many see the naming of Paul Ryan as unimpressive and even premature and just another indication of a desperate move by Mitt Romney to distract from the idea that the “presumptive nominee” has in truth, been fighting for his political life.
“When the Fed talks about independence, what they’re really talking about is secrecy. What the GAO cannot audit is monetary policy. It would not be able to look at agreements and operations with foreign central banks, and governments, and other banks, transactions made under the direction of the FOMC [Federal Open Market Committee], and discussions or communications between the board and the Federal Reserve system relating to all those items. And why this is important is because of what happened 4 years ago. It’s estimated that the amount of money that went in and out of the Fed overseas is $15 trillion. How did we get into this situation where Congress has nothing to say about bailing out all these banks?”

Congressman Ron Paul Before the U.S. House of Representatives, Committee on Financial Services, Hearing on HR 1098: the Free Competition in Currency Act
I. The Problem
John Maynard Keynes once stated that “There is no subtler, no surer means of overturning the existing basis of society than to debauch the currency. The process engages all the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and does it in a manner which not one man in a million is able to diagnose.” Such a situation is exactly what faces this country today, as the Federal Reserve seems hell-bent on destroying what little purchasing power remains of the U.S. Dollar.
What Would Really Happen If Ron Paul Were To Be Elected President?
by Bill Sardi
President Paul would immediately push for $1 trillion cut in federal spending (per year, not the $3 trillion that Democrats proposed over 10 years with half of that from increased taxes.)
President Paul would have the authority as commander-and-chief to withdraw troops from overseas, within limits of treaty commitments which must be honored (US supplies defense for Saudi Arabia, many other nations.) To the extent possible, the US would cease being the world’s policeman and plunderer of foreign economies (Iraq, Libya). The US would cease being a war economy. President Paul would also push to…

PAULTICAL TICKER with Jack Hunter (RONPAUL2012.COM) – I keep reading these stories about what happened in Nebraska yesterday, where phrases like “Ron Paul’s last stand” and reporters saying things like “it’s all over for Ron Paul” are used liberally.
This is stupid. These reports are stupid. They may be accurate in the immediate technical electoral sense, but are wholly inaccurate in the much more pertinent and larger sense when reporting on anything concerning Ron Paul and his very large, vocal and influential movement.
KRISTI KIRK (PATRIOTS AND PAULIES POLITICS & NEWS) – Okay class, this is an easy one. There’s no doubt that the wishes of political campaign contributors ultimately influence public policy. In essence, political candidates “are” the donations they keep. With that in mind, which GOP presidential hopeful would you rather elect to office?
Ron Paul is the Best Option in Election 2012
(PolicyMic.com) – During the 2008 Presidential campaign, I (along with many others) tried to argue that there was no legitimate difference between the grumpiest old man John McCain and the constitutional law professor turned Hope and Change motivator Barack Obama. It was clear that neither candidate was going to rollback the war profiteering military industrial complex. McCain’s hawkish attitude towards oil rich foreign lands, including his infamous “Bomb, Bomb, Iran” ditty, and Obama’s foreign policy adviser of choice, Zbigniew Brzezinski, who founded Al-Qaeda (at that point as a foil against the Soviets in Afghanistan) and authored The Grand Chessboard were tell-tale signs that the imperialist foreign policy would continue unabridged. It was also clear that neither candidate intended on curtailing the runaway casino financial system that benefits the 0.1% at the expense of the taxpayer. Both McCain and Obama stressed the urgency of the bailouts that sent trillions to Wall Street — who just happened to be the main campaign contributors for both candidates.
Today, exposing the false Left-Right paradigm is much easier. Goldman Sachs (R) vs. Goldman Sachs (D). Romneycare or Obamacare? Neither candidate is offering peace. More wars. More big government. The same old song and dance.

Are all super PAC ads created equal? Not according to Google Politics & Elections who looked at YouTube viewer counts last March and found that Super PAC sponsored YouTube ads supporting Congressman Ron Raul are viewed more than YouTube content posted by super PACs (independent expenditure-only political action committees) for all the other GOP Presidential hopefuls combined.
This is great. It is wonderful to hear all these leftists saying Ron Paul is Right!

KRISTI KIRK (PATRIOTS AND PAULIES POLITICS & NEWS) -With politicians quoted making stupid statements like these, no wonder it’s the politicians who make us laugh and comedians who make us think. We laugh because we think stupid politicians are losers – stupid politicians laugh because we’re just figuring it out! Here’s our picks for the TOP 7 stupidest quotes by politicians (they’re pretty funny):
PAULTICAL TICKER with Jack Hunter (The Daily Caller) – Ahead of the Supreme Court’s Thursday ruling on Obamacare, Texas Republican Rep. Ron Paul explained that government is already too involved in health care…
“It is obvious that Obamacare’s legal apologists either are wholly ignorant of constitutional principles, or wholly lawless in their blatant disregard for those principles,” Paul wrote on his online feed, “Texas Straight Talk.”
