    • Ben Shapiro Exposes Cenk Uygur’s Economic Ignorance – Ep. 278
      Economic Ignorance I happened to watch a YouTube video Politicon 2017 Live Stream Schapiro vs Uygur and I want to address only the part of the discussion which was about taxes.  Ben Shapiro did a good job, but a much stronger case should be made about Uygur’s statements which were economically ignorant. False Logic One of […] The post Ben Shapiro Exposes Cen […]

      Speculative Asset Bitcoin is a digital risk asset, not a currency. If you own bitcoin you have an asset, but it is not a safe haven. A safe haven is an asset that is not likely to go down in comparison to another speculative investment.  Bitcoin has been extremely volatile; it happens to be going […] The post Bitcoin is a Digital Risk Asset, Not a Currency – […]

      Fire and Fury Not Strong Enough Donald Trump’s saber-rattling against North Korea continues. Yesterday the President was asked to clarify his statement about the “fire and fury” and he came out and said that that wasn’t strong enough; he was really sugar-coating it. What he really means is something worse – if anything his statement […] The post Trump’s Sabe […]

Iowa Day 1

After a relatively smooth flight into Des Moines, I got my rental car and drove 2 hours east to the Clarion Highlander Hotel in Iowa City.  I didn’t get in until about 8 PM, and once I unpacked my stuff I gave my rp2012.org contact, Jun, a call to see if there was anything still going on at the campaign office in Coralville which was just 10 minutes away.  To my surprise, there were many people still at the office so he told me to come on over to get caught up.

Ron Paul's Johnson County campaign office

When I arrived, I finally got to meet some people face-to-face who I had only talked to on the phone or seen online.  The Johnson County coordinator was inside busily working, as well as a girl from the Revolution PAC and a number of other volunteers from various grassroots organizations.  Jun showed me a county map of Iowa that noted how many precinct vacancies each one had and which ones we were concentrating on in the eastern part of the state.  These were in no way concrete numbers, but we estimated there were about 70 precinct vacancies that needed captains (out of 1784 precincts total), so this wasn’t too shabby.  Thus, our next goal is to to fill those precincts with vacancies as well as find backups captains for many others with our stream of volunteers.  I took off a little after 11 and the office still had several people working diligently.

When I woke up next morning to grab some breakfast at my hotel, I couldn’t help but notice the TV commercials playing.  Within the span of my meal, I saw a Newt Gingrich commercial, followed by ones for Rick Perry and then Ron Paul.  The media bombardment was in full effect 48 hours prior to the first caucus!  After eating breakfast, I took a look outside and noticed a small dusting of snow had fallen over night.  Also, another Ron Paul patriot had pulled up next to my car at the hotel!  In addition to helping Jun do some volunteer organizing, I might also do some outreach at Ron Paul’s and Rand Paul’s Whiste-Stop Tour up in Cedar Rapids.  Exciting times await!

Ron Paul reifnorcements!
