"The Free State Project is an agreement among 20,000 participants to move to NH for "Liberty in Our Lifetime."
Now that they have reached 20,000 participants, they are going to set about packing up and making the move to New Hampshire.

1 - Rand received 8,481 of the 186,753 votes cast, which is importantly 4.54129% or 5%. The media (CNN) likes to call it 4%, even though our use of ratios and percentages are rounded up from the mid-tenths place. Anything they can do they will. Do you feel differently about 4% vs. 5%? I do. Leverage is being trivialized by the media.

Democracy and Political Ignorance

Aaron Ross Powell, and Trevor Burrus of Free Thoughts Podcast interview Ilya Somin.  They discussion about political ignorance and its affect on democracy.  Somin's conclusion is similar to what I had commented about  on a previous thread.  The ignorance of he public holds us back in political elections and ultimately keeps us more divided as a people.  Before being able to have an effective debate, we have to have a base knowledge to draw from.

The above quote is from Matt Kibbe, formerly of Freedom Works and now with the SupePAC Concerned American Voters supporting Rand.  Kibbe goes on to say that Rand's Iowa vote was actually "very credible considering where he has been."

Interesting comment about Cruz background and training as a "classical liberal" but Kibbe is concerned about Cruz being a neocon. http://reason.com/blog/2016/02/02/rand-paul-campaign-superpac-speak-on-iow.

CAV is sticking with Rand.

So The Daily Show is now apparently following in Fox's footsteps by replacing 5th place Rand with 6th place Jeb. So much for that man crush Noah supposedly had. Hypocrites of 2012.

Welcome to Ron Paul's world, Ben... the new age of Fascism! Liberty is still threatening to win!

Poor Ben is maybe justifiably peeved at the cheating, whether he is sincere or not in his high dudgeon! I say 'Welcome to Ron Paul's world, Ben... it is the battlefield of liberty in a new age of Fascism! What did you expect from a party whose 'elephant in the room' is the openly declared 'reject the constitution'.

The GOP is choosing open fascists and oath breakers, no longer ashamed to ignore constitutional limits, believing they now exist autonomous from the very document which creates the office!

 These past few months we have been quietly rebuilding a way for people to return to the gold standard. UPMA has been around since Utah's Legal Specie Act passed in 2011 but the debit cards are brand new. You can now transact against gold at a 0% buy/sell spread.

 Man did I miss popularliberty. I have about six or seven websites that I check all the time because I just can't get enough. 

 Just remembered this one and decided to join and try it out. It feels good so far. Lots of familiar names. I think that I will stick around. Maybe I will bring a few in as well.
