Why Support for Syria’s Nonviolent Fighters is Key to Ending the War

Data show that the average nonviolent campaign takes about three years to run its course.

Why the Fed Hasn’t Been Audited Even Though Most Americans Want it to Happen – Ron Paul

Fed defenders did launch hysterical attacks on the bill during the debate as well as at a hearing on the bill. One representative claimed that auditing the Fed would result in rising interest rates, a stock market crash, a decline in the dollar’s value, and a complete loss of confidence in the US economy. Those who understand economics know that all of this is actually what awaits America unless we change our monetary policy.

Beware the Dogs of War: Is the American Empire on the Verge of Collapse?

Even if we were to put an end to all of the government’s military meddling and bring all of the troops home today, it would take decades to pay down the price of these wars and get the government’s creditors off our backs. Even then, government spending would have to be slashed dramatically and taxes raised to pay of the $19 trillion debt.

Trump’s Pick to Head the FDA Is a Big Pharma Mega-Lobbyist

Ron Paul: Did the Government Spy on Trump? Of Course. It Spies on All of Us!

He will not see runaway spying on Americans as a grotesque attack on American values. That is unfortunate, because this could have provided a great teaching moment for the president. Seeing how all of us are vulnerable to this kind of government abuse, President Trump could have changed his tune on the PATRIOT Act and all government attacks on our privacy. He could have stood up for liberty, which is really what makes America great.
