    • Either Praise The Police, Or Shut Up
      Following Alexander the Great’s conquest of Persia, members of the Persian elite were required to prostrate themselves before their new ruler. Polyperchon, one of Alexander’s generals, sternly rebuked one of the Persians whose self-abasement was seen as inadequate. “Come on, don’t just touch the floor with your chin,” demanded Alexander’s arrogant underling.

    • Governments Need Inflation, Economies Don't
      In an article in the UK's Telegraph on October 10, veteran economic correspondent Ambrose Evans-Pritchard laid bare the essential truth of the nearly universal current embrace of inflation as an economic panacea. While politicians, CEOs and economists talk about demand stimulus and the avoidance of a deflationary trap, Evans-Pritchard reminds us that in […]

      This Friday is Yom Kippur, the day when Jews around the world ask forgiveness for their transgressions from the year past. Rabbis remind the penitent to dwell on their sins of omission, in which they did nothing when a more thoughtful and proactive action was needed, and sins of commission, in which they actively participated in an unjust action. And while n […]
    • A New Fed Playbook for the New Normal
      While many economists and market watchers have failed to notice, we have entered a new chapter in the short and checkered history of central banking. This paradigm shift, as yet unaddressed in the textbooks, changes the basic policy tools that have traditionally defined the sphere of macroeconomic decision-making. The job of a central banker is supposed to b […]
    • Doubling Down on Inflation
      Friday's release of disappointing August payroll numbers should have been a jarring wake-up call warning Wall Street that the economy has been treading on thin ice. Instead the alarm clock was stuffed under the pillow and Wall Street kept sleeping. The miss was so epic in fact (the 142,000 jobs created was almost 40% below the consensus estimate) that t […]

For Liberty: How the Ron Paul Revolution Watered the Withered Tree of Liberty (my 1 second cameo)

I just finished watching an awesome documentary called For Liberty which details the surge of the Ron Paul Revolution back in 2007/2008.  It brought back many great memories and made me psyched about the upcoming 2012 election cycle.  The documentary starts with the early 2007 GOP presidential debates in which Ron Paul made a name for himself and then culminates in his giant Rally for the Republic counter-convention in St. Paul, Minnesota which gathered more than 15,000 supporters in August, 2008.

My 1 second of fame in the documentary. If you notice, immediately to my left was the Libertarian Party presidential nominee, Bob Barr. He was a douchebag who tried to ride Ron Paul's cottails and attract his supporters.

Coincidentally, I noticed that my wife and I had a brief cameo in the film because we traveled to Minnesota for the Rally for the Republic and we were right outside the Target Center when the Freedom Walkers arrived.  I posted a screen capture from the documentary pointing myself  out at the 1:45:52 mark.  My one second of fame!  FYI, I was wearing my “Legalize the Constitution, Ron Paul 2008″ t-shirt.

For those who supported Ron Paul in the past, this is a definite must see as it will reignite the passion that you experienced in 2008 and get your adrenaline pumping to go out and all do it again this next election cycle.  Those who don’t support Ron Paul or don’t know who he is, this is a great primer to see what the revolution is all about and how it is unlike any other phenomenon tapped by a presidential candidate in the past.  Some may wonder or question how such a revolution began, and this video will show them.  There was a passion for liberty in each one of us, and Ron Paul was just the messenger that set it on fire and brought it out.  As such, it is not centered around one man, nor will it end after Ron Paul’s campaigns end.  It’s a spontaneous and decentralized force that will continue to burn until the country is set free.  Let’s go out and continue the revolution and keep fighting to get Ron Paul and many other liberty candidates elected in 2012!
