    A new site vision; a new era

    Thread Starter: Bryan

    . Same Mission; New Vision The genesis of this website came in 2007 in support of Ron Paul’s 2008 presidential campaign. While the campaign itself was not successful, it achieved more for liberty than anyone could have imagined. In 2009/2010 the site rallied behind Rand Paul to help him win a seat in the U.S. Senate. Ron Paul’s 2011/2012 campaign again provided new focus and new goals for...

    LOCAL POLITICS FOR DUMMIES

    Thread Starter: Son_of_Liberty90

    Ok, so I voted today in the primaries, and I did not know any of the people running for judge or board of education. In school we don't learn about local politics, only politics at the national level. Its actually pretty hard to find information on local candidates. We all know why this is, but how to remedy the situation? How do we convince others: LOCAL ELECTIONS MATTER, and how to...

    State of the movement; state of the site – discussion and conference calls

    You should have seen the announcement of the site moving forward with a new vision into a new era. Included in that we outlined a series of issues that we plan to address and some work elements we will be engaging in. One key to our plan is that our actions are best tailored to the state of the liberty movement. So with that… * What is the state of the liberty movement? How does it compare to...

    A Blueprint for Wake Up.

    Well, this was proposed elsewhere - alot of people agreed there should be a plan or process for waking people up. Don't think anyone got around to doing it though. So here goes my common sense attempt which is more so a (non professional aka Not F.U Frank quality) manipulation approach, too get people to the bright/right side. Anyone out there studied cognitive dissonance? Or psychology or...

Rand has already said he's going to endorse the eventual nominee no matter who it is.

    All it does is force trans men and women to use bathrooms based on the sex that they were born in, considering that many trans men and women simply look like regular men and women, it does the opposite of the intended effect.
