    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    He was convicted of conspiracy, causing false campaign contribution reports to be filed to the Federal Election Commission and participating in a false statement scheme.
    Could have beat two of the raps if he had SHUT THE $#@! UP around cops.

    So let me make sure I have this right: Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder, Barack Obama, and the rest of that raft of raving, frothing felons commit all manner of overtly criminal acts and the DOJ remains flaccid. But when Benton et al are suspected of campaign irregularities, DOJ is letting everyone have it all gooey in the eyes?

    And some here still think there is a "system-compliant" path toward the establishment of some reasonable facsimile of liberty in America? What are you taking and why are you not sharing? I'd really like to get some of that action.

    Move along folks... nothing to see here.
    Through lives and lives shalt thou pay, O' king.

    Freedom will be stolen from you in a heartbeat if you do not behave as a wild and ravening beast pursuant to its protection.

    "Government" is naught but a mental construct, a script to which people meekly accept and play out their assigned roles by those with no authority to dictate such.

    Pray for reset.

    We get what we tolerate and we deserve what we get precisely because we tolerate it.

    ...That trick effectively "weaponized" the federal regulatory agency as part of their plot, the prosecutors said. Voters across the country have said during the current election cycle that they believe the "system is rigged," and this case shows why that attitude persists, Pilger said... http://www.desmoinesregister.com/sto...mann/90742638/
    Wow! The election was rigged in favor of Ron Paul! Who knew?

    You see, this is why you get funny looks when you mention your libertarian ideas to people. Everybody knows this equality before the law is BS. The real world does not work that way. The sooner you get this simple idea through your thick skull the better for you. Now, sorry I gotta run, I just got a text from my master.

    h/t unknown & Matt Collins: http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthr...d-Jesse-Benton!

    Jesse Benton pardoned:
    - https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefings...emency-122320/
    - https://www.desmoinesregister.com/st...on/4038489001/

    Two men convicted of multiple federal offenses stemming from a bribery plot during the 2012 Iowa Republican caucus received pardons from President Donald Trump late Wednesday.

    John Tate and Jesse Benton were convicted in 2016 of various public corruption charges for paying an Iowa state senator to switch his endorsement to then-U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, during his 2012 presidential campaign, days before the first-in-the-nation nominating event. Sen. Kent Sorenson, an Indianola Republican, had been a supporter of U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn.

    Tate and Benton were convicted by a federal jury in Des Moines in May 2016. Each served six months home confinement and two years’ probation.

    If none of the people that should be prosecuted are prosecuted then nobody should be prosecuted.

    This is so amusing... Americans fiddle as the land burns. We've been at it for over 100 years and still haven't bought the clue.

    This case was a joke, as are about 50% of federal non-drug cases. I am glad they were pardoned.

    They were pardoned because they were put up to scandalizing the Paul campaign. They were pardoned to ensure their silence as per their original agreement Iím sure. Itís the scenario that makes any sense.

    They were targeted because they backed Ron Paul, and the feds found some highly technical non-victim "crime" to convict them. They were pardoned because the tables have turned over the past 8 years, now we have many defenders of liberty in powerful positions in the federal government fore the first time since the days of Calvin Coolidge.

    They sure as hell weren't pardoned because this POTUS has a soft spot for libertarians, so it's curious indeed.

    My take is that Trump, having lost, is just lashing out at everyone, trying to $#@! with them as much as possible on his way out.

    ...and "they" do not like Ron Paul people.

    That's what this veto threat was about; $#@!ing with Mitch because Mitch acknowledged that Biden won.

    ...a final dick-waving exercise before he goes to the great ignored goodnight.

    Rand convinced Trump to do it.

    Trump just vetoed the NDAA.

    If you're suggesting that the veto was motivated by concern for excessive spending, you're mistaken.

    Trump is anti-war as well as a budget hawk.

    JESSE BENTON got into trouble because ML Mitch McConnell had been his boss. Asked him to do things. Trump gave Mitch an X-mas present.

    Matt may be correct on how Doctor Rand looked at this. McConnell being McConnell.
    Trump's mistake was that he got into a very minor quarrel with wily ole Mitch after
    he gave him a rather nice X-mas present that was wrapped up in a very big nice bow.
