    Since I've arrived in Sao Paulo Brazil I have started to make an effort to meet some of the people here who share our values regarding liberty.

    The only word that I can use to describe what I have found is "magic".

    I feel like I have witnessed an idea that began to really sprout in 2007, and now some of it's branches have spread over here, thousands of kilometers away.

    Talking to some of these folks and seeing some of their activity on Facebook, I see all of the same memes that we have been spreading for years.

    I even met a young person who is about to organize the first classically liberal political party here in Brazil!

    Please read the following article that describes what has been happening here, while I go and encourage these fantastic young individuals to introduce themselves in this thread.

    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...

    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...
