Campaign Finance Reform BS

The whole concept of “campaign finance reform”- limiting cash contributions to political campaigns- is complete garbage. ‚ In a free country, I should be able to spend my money however I please. ‚ If I wish to get drunk daily and ride roller coasters, I should be allowed to do so. ‚ If I wish to try to help a candidate get elected by giving him money or effort, I should be allowed to do so.… read more “Campaign Finance Reform BS”

Interesting Ron Paul Video- He Predicts Economic Collapse

I found an interesting video of Ron Paul (Republican Representative from Texas) discussing the current problems we have in our economy- over a year ago. Ron Paul sounds a lot like me. I like him. 🙂
