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!
KRISTI KIRK (PATRIOTSANDPAULIES.WORDPRESS.COM) –Blogger, author and New York City based financial advisor, Josh Brown, The Reformed Broker, recently came out with a list naming 25 financial media players who he feels are today’s most dangerous. “Dangerous in a good way,” says Brown. Beyond ranking at the top of their fields, Brown says these financial journalists are the movers and shakers who pose a danger to the status quo.
“We tried it [the establishment’s] way, allowing the banks and other corporations to write the laws and make all of our decisions for us. Turns out, that’s not true democracy or capitalism, it’s something else entirely, and we’ve all had enough,” Brown says,
“These are the folks leading the charge to take it back.”
(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.

“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?”

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.
Army Manual Outlines Plan To Kill Rioters, Demonstrators In America
“Warning shots will not be fired”
A newly leaked US Army Military Police training manual for “Civil Disturbance Operations” outlines how military assets are to be used domestically to quell riots, confiscate firearms and even kill Americans on U.S. soil during mass civil unrest.
The document (PDF), which is dated 2006 and was used for a self-learning course at the U.S. Army Military Police School at Fort McClellan, makes it clear that the operations described in the manual apply to both “CONUS and OCONUS,” meaning inside the Continental United States and outside the Continental United States.

A vote for Mitt Romney is a guaranteed vote and support to reelect Obama both which in turn, are votes for The Banksters and Wall Street Big-Money. Eating right out of the hands of The Powers That Be! I hope you Romney supporters realize this fact. Bye-bye our way of American life… Jamie Trent – FB
