    This whole process just reinforces how much politics and political journalism is just a circus. It's just about soundbites and drama that people feed off of for personal entertainment. Trump -- the reality TV star -- is a perfect representative for this system. The pro-State types hate him but he is the perfect embodiment of what it takes to make it to the top of the government apparatus.

    Sadly according to one observer Pompeo is one of the lesser hawks in Trump's cabinet... which isn't saying much.

    Some background. The PAYGO provision discussed below. Rand was consistent in saying he requested spending cuts along with the tax cuts and opposed the waiver for the spending cuts. My opinion -- that others may disagree with -- is that it's okay (but not ideal) to vote for a tax cut without a spending cut. The spending bill immediately after the tax law changes was stripped of the PAYGO provision and this is how Rand Paul (and Mike Lee) voted: "Only eight of 51 Senate Republicans voted against waiving budgetary discipline for the spending bill, and only two of those, Kentucky’s Rand Paul and Utah’s Mike Lee, voted against the bill’s final passage. Likewise, only 16 Republicans voted against the spending bill in the House, and several of those voted no not because the bill cancelled automatic spending reductions, but because the bill didn’t spend enough on federal defense programs." https://thefederalist.com/2018/01/03/waiving-tax-cut-pay-proves-parties-still-addicted-federal-spending/

Eric Garner, Mohamed Bouazizi, and the tyranny of petty laws

by Libertea Party on 12-05-2014 at 01:43 AM
There are parallels with Mohamed Bouazizi tragedy in Tunisia that launched the Arab Spring revolution and the Eric Garner outrage. What you have is the state's ability to be recklessly violent becoming exposed and directed toward the most marginalized of populations. Whether it's unevenness in drug laws or other petty social/economic regulations... these nonviolent "crimes" often wind up ensnaring powerless minorities Minority in the sense of social/economic not necessarily racial.

The REAL reason the media hates Ron Paul and liberty.

by Libertea Party on 12-28-2011 at 07:10 PM
It's funny watching the flowering relationship between many in the media and Rick Santorum. You see those two will start fighting again but it will merely be a lover's quarrel. The real hate from the media is reserved for those who love liberty and oppose big government.

To be employed in political journalism you take for granted that the government has a role in civil society beyond as a mere functionary defending person and property. In fact a journalist takes great pride in "being
