Here is a collection of some of the stories that Personal Liberty staffers will be keeping an eye on throughout the day. Click the links for the full stories.

  • The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) kicks off today. Here are five political storylines to follow as the Right convenes in the hope of putting a face on its future.
  • America’s second-richest man (that’s Bill Gates) wishes we could go all Euro and give President Barack Obama “slightly more power” like they do in the mother country. This guy’s a capitalist?
  • A small but vocal cadre of environmentalists are holding up one of America’s biggest potential energy boons, and it’s time they shut the frack up.
  • Guess who hates Obamacare? Doctors.
  • A North Korean propaganda video portrays the U.S. as a pretty, well, North Korea-like place. The video tells viewers that Americans eat snow, shoot children, sit unfazed among their many shrouded dead friends and eat city birds to stay alive. Is this a hoax?

Ben Bullard

Reconciling the concept of individual sovereignty with conscientious participation in the modern American political process is a continuing preoccupation for staff writer Ben Bullard. A former community newspaper writer, Bullard has closely observed the manner in which well-meaning small-town politicians and policy makers often accept, unthinkingly, their increasingly marginal role in shaping the quality of their own lives, as well as those of the people whom they serve. He argues that American public policy is plagued by inscrutable and corrupt motives on a national scale, a fundamental problem which individuals, families and communities must strive to solve. This, he argues, can be achieved only as Americans rediscover the principal role each citizen plays in enriching the welfare of our Republic.

    Why even have a CPAC, as far as I am concerned “We The People” have elected our officials in all areas to represent us and CPAC is not an elected representative but instead another group that will eat up just more unwarranted funds. As for Billy Gates wanting Obama to be King, he can keep dreaming as Obama already thinks he is king and can do anything, but it looks like we have some new kids in town that are jumping on his decisions and not letting him get away with whatever he wants. Fracking is safe if its been carried out properly with all safeguards in place. It always has been but its worth a lot of money and politicians are milking it for every dollar they can get from the lobbiests for the multi national companies. North Korea is another thing and it looks like they have learnt that the media is a powerful tool to manipulate the masses and tell them lies of any type, I cant see any problem with that as American Government and Multi Nationals have been doing it for years at home and abroad. They just don’t like it when another country does it back to them.

    The ACA (Obamacare) is completely insane! All that it will do is bankrupt our country, and for us so much further into the Socialistic scheme. How is it that it is even still in effect? Why have we, as a constitutional republic of free people, not completely nullified it yet? I, for one, will not be complying, nor will I be paying any taxes or fines for not complying with such an unconstitutional mandate. VOTE THEM OUT!

      “I, for one, will not be complying, nor will I be paying any taxes or fines for not complying with such an unconstitutional mandate. VOTE THEM OUT!”

      Just remember, they have guns. Probably explains why they want ours. They must be expecting a LOT of resistance to obamaTax.
