McMinn 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.

After months of vile, hateful attacks from Romney supporters during the primary, they have turned on a dime and now expect us to come filing in behind the party’s “official” candidate. Not this guy. I’m not voting for Romney because it solves nothing. We need to fix this country, and voting for an individual only because he won’t do AS MUCH damage just seem ludicrous to me. I’m not voting for anyone who’s going to do more damage PERIOD. I’m voting with my conscience not some underhanded political scheme to drag this economical crash out as long as possible. In my opinion, I think we should just get it over with, and start rebuilding already. Read more…
I originally discovered Ron Paul during his 2008 run, and voted for him in both primaries. Although I voted for Libertarian Bob Barr in the 2008 general election, I wasn’t very enthusiastic about him. He seemed like a former GOP insider that turned Libertarian only because he wasn’t getting the attention he wanted within his original party. This year is different.
I’ve heard Gary Johnson’s name mentioned countless times within Ron Paul circles and online forums but never actually gave him much thought. I figured he was another Paul Ryan, gave true libertarian ideology nothing more than lip service. And like the many Paul Ryans out there they tout their constitutional principles and fiscal conservatism on the campaign trail, and that’s where it stops. Gary Johnson is not another Paul Ryan. I got bored one day and just started watching some YouTube videos about Johnson and I am hooked. Read more…
It’s no secret that the GOP brass isn’t particularly fond of Congressman Paul. Even with Paul accumulating an impressive 6 states and almost 300 delegates by some counts, the GOP and Romney campaign have yet to even offer him an invitation to the Republican National Convention in Tampa. But Ron Paul doesn’t need your stupid convention because he’s having his own damn convention. Apparently it will kick off just before the GOP’s does and will be located in Tampa as well. If you want more details on Paul’s Tampa Rally check out his official announcement available on his website.

A Libertarian Case for Net Neutrality
As a libertarian you may be uneasy with the concept of net neutrality. Like me, you feel inexplicably drawn to this neutrality but feel guilty for it. 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.
Pbs’ Ghostwriter Show Identity Revealed
Most anyone who was a kid in the 90s will remember PBS’s TV show Ghostwriter. The show was about a bunch of kids who tried to solve mysteries with the help of some ghost that could rearrange the words they wrote in a notebook. It doesn’t sound like much of a plot but it was interesting for a young kid in the 90s. I had horrible handwriting as a kid and the show was very frustrating for me because all the kids had neat, legible handwriting. Read more…
