25710McMinn County, Tennessee had a serious problem with political corruption and fraud for quite some time. While a good portion of the county’s men were overseas fighting in World War II, the county elected a new Sheriff, Paul Cantrell, and he recruited a small army of loyal deputies. The Sheriff’s bulletproof system came to an end with the surrender of the Axis, as 3,000 veterans (about 10% of the county’s population) returned to their home in McMinn County and soon formed the GI Non-Partisan League.

la_losangeles_county_sheriff-thumb-640xauto-4244Los Angeles law enforcement has a very well known reputation, a reputation that is known across the world.

You think to yourself, “I’m a free-market libertarian, by God! Regulation is wrong! Why is my instinct betraying me?” It’s because we don’t live in perfect world. We live in an economy that is far from free and is infested with government regulations and corporate manipulation. The internet service industry is a picturesque example of this.

Rp on the Drug War

100220_ron_paul_2010_lg“Has nobody noticed that the authorities can’t even keep drugs out of the prisons? How can making our entire society a prison solve the problem?” – Ron Paul, during his farewell to Congress.
