Representative Ron Paul, an unyielding champion of liberty and perhaps the most honest member of Congress in modern history, gave what is likely to be his last address to Congress yesterday. The Congressman will leave his office at the end of the year. In his speech he warned of a bleak American future if the Nation remains addicted to welfare, war and debt.
As the Federal government undoubtedly prepares to pounce on Colorado and Washington after voters in each State opted to legalize recreational marijuana use, it seems the Feds are fighting a losing battle with the American psyche.
The White House implemented a “We the People” page on its website to give Americans an easier way to engage the Federal government with grievances and complaints. Now, tens of thousands of Americans in at least 20 States are petitioning for the right of peaceable secession from the United States.

Tomorrow, you will vote and hopefully Americans will know very quickly — without too many hanging chads, faulty machines or fraud accusations — whether President Mitt Romney or President Barack Obama will hold the Nation’s highest office for the next four years.
New York University students in a class on transnational terrorism cannot pass the course until they “hypothetically plan a terrorist attack” of their own, including details about location and how they would carry out their dastardly plans.
A vote for Mitt Romney is a vote for Barack Obama. A vote for either man is a vote for moving again further from the principles upon which this Nation was founded.
