2007 Man of the Year - Ron Paul

Time Magazine believes that fascist Russian dictator Vladimir Putin is 2007's Man of the Year.

I have a different point of view.

For his lifelong commitment to truth, justice, and the real American way - the Constitution - Ronald Ernest Paul is my 2007 Man of the Year.

While the media has said much (and simultaneously said very little) about who Ron Paul really is and what he stands for, I believe that Dr. Paul's record speaks for itself.

A well-known fact, my man of the year defended liberty in 2001 when he voted against the PATRIOT Act. A lesser-known fact, and more relevant to 2007, is that "On October 15, 2007, Paul introduced the American Freedom Agenda Act of 2007, which would "bar the use of evidence obtained through torture; require that federal intelligence gathering is conducted in accordance with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA); create a mechanism for challenging presidential signing statements; repeal the Military Commissions Act, which, among other things, denies habeas corpus to certain detainees; prohibit kidnapping, detentions, and torture abroad; protect journalists who publish information received from the executive branch; and ensure that secret evidence is not used to designate individuals or organizations with a presence in the U.S. as foreign terrorists." - wikipedia.com

While the media has a hard time conveying (or a fun time distorting, take your pick) Paul's ideas, the 10-term Congressman from Texas explains a great deal of his positions through his writing. You can learn a lot from his columns, archived here.

Ron Paul is also a vehement opponent of the Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007.

Ron Paul, currently running for President of the United States, is the only Republican I would endorse, and I would choose him before any Democrat, even Mike Gravel and Dennis Kucinich. Paul has his priorities in order: end the war, get America's financial house in order, and restore our civil liberties.

A fair interview shows that Paul is the rarest of politicians: an honest person with a chance to win.

Don't believe Paul can win? Here is one poll that says differently. This poll is far more accurate and democratic than any poll touted by mainstream media, I promise.

Ron Paul has raised over $18 million this quarter alone, because he works for the people, not the corporations.

I believe Ron Paul will win in Iowa and New Hampshire.

For everything that he stands for and everything he is poised to accomplish, Ron Paul is my 2007 Man of the Year.

Freedom prevails, Time Magazine, not fascism.

Ronald Ernest Paul, not Vladimir Vladimirovich Hillary Clinton Barack Obama Giuliani Willard Romney Putin.

God Bless Reddit.com

Without Reddit.com, where would the real news be? Certainly not on TV.

After months of being all over YouTube and Digg, the LA Times finally took notice of the Ron Paul Phenomenon.

And despite being barred from the Iowa Debate, Dennis Kucinich is preparing to try and impeach President Bush!

And unbelievably, the House passed a ban on Waterboarding!

Now for the bad news.

Journalist Seymour Hersh says children were raped at Abu Ghraib, and the Pentagon has videos.

Along the same lines, The Gang-rape of Halliburton employee Jamie Leigh Jones was not an isolated incident, and naturally the State and Justice Depts. are keeping quiet.

Unsurprisingly, the U.S. Government has been busy covertly spreading propaganda on the Internet from Guantanamo Bay.

And finally, Homeland Security Chief Michael Chertoff, preparing for the battle to pass the Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007, says that the biggest threat to America is a homegrown attack, contradicting himself.

What happened to global Islamic terrorism?

By now, the bottom line should be obvious. For seven years, the Bush Administration has been scaring the public into giving up freedom for security.

If we allow Congress to pass the Violent Radicalization Act, we would sacrifice the 1st Amendment.

I for one don't find living under the threat of prosecution for dissent to be very safe.

Write your Senators and tell them this Act is treason. And if you haven't done so yet, your deadline is fast approaching. Register to vote in the Presidential Primary. The Ron Paul Revolution rears it's head in just two days.

Hope for the Future - Ignore the media

When the Mainstream Media isn't lying to you, they are distracting you.
Bush is history - Focus on the Present, Elect a New President

By Andrew Meyer

Bush lied about Iran's nuclear ambitions! Shocking!

For once, the Mainstream Media isn't lying. Well, except for the New York Times. Even now, they subtly defend Bush's lies with unnamed sources in "credible" news stories.

Here is some of what the Times has reported (from US News.com): Surprisingly, the New York Times reports the International Atomic Energy Agency "on Tuesday publicly embraced the new American intelligence assessment stating that Iran had halted its nuclear weapons effort, but in truth the agency is taking a more cautious approach in drawing conclusions about Iran's nuclear program." A "senior official close to the agency" said, "To be frank, we are more skeptical. ... We don't buy the American analysis 100 percent. We are not that generous with Iran."

If Bush told us all the sky turns red when God is angry and we should fear attack from Angelo-Fascists, should God Himself appear before the people of Earth to tell us Bush is full of it, The New York Times would still find God's information inconclusive.

Important to keep in mind isn't that Bush lied, or that the New York Times is a rag, what's important is (as ALWAYS) the stories they aren't discussing.

We can drastically change the course of America and the world for the better in the upcoming months. The primaries for the next Presidential election begin in a little over a month! This, to me, is the most crucial story of all.

Bush has been lying for seven years. The New York Times (and CNN, and the Washington Post, and Fox News, etc., etc., ad nauseum) hasn't reported the truth while I've been alive, if they ever did.

Ignore them! Even when they aren't spreading nonsensical propaganda, they are distracting you from what you should be focusing on.

The Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007 (a.k.a. the criminalization of free speech) is still on the table in the Senate, and it still isn't being discussed anywhere in the mainstream media!

The solution to everything that ails us in this country - our imperialistic, aggressive ways abroad, our eroding civil liberties at home, the lack of care for ourselves and our fellow man - is on the table.

There are two Democrats and a Republican who have the will and the potential power to fix everything. Dennis Kucinich, Mike Gravel, and Ron Paul are all telling the truth. All of them would bring Peace, Prosperity, and Sanity to the American people.

Unfortunately, they aren't anywhere to be seen in the mainstream media polls showing who is "in the lead." What are we to do?

IGNORE THE POLLS! This is a perfect example of why you should stop listening to the oh-so-scientific numbers manufactured for TV. It's all a lie!

Ron Paul is going to dominate the New Hampshire primary. In fact, I will go so far as to say that barring any blatant and obvious cheating (which will be exposed and overturned), Paul is your Republican nominee. I have less sparkling predictions for the Democratic nom. Barack Obama has convinced millions of people he is a real progressive, and millions more are voting for Hillary becuase they liked Bill. So, I wish Kucinich and Gravel the best of luck, but I don't think they can win. Perhaps (and I wouldn't bet against it) one of them will be named Vice President on a winning non-partisan ticket with President Paul.

I would listen to Vegas before any TV pundit, and according to this article, Ron Paul is now favored over Mitt Romney to win. I'll take those odds.

An Assault on the 1st Amendment

Thought crime to be voted on in the senate

By Andrew Meyer

First they passed the PATRIOT Act which jeopardizes the 4th Amendment. Then the Military Commissions Act eliminated habeus corpus, a summons that demands a prisoner be brought before the court together with proof of authority, so that the court can determine whether the government has lawful authority to hold that person or not. The government and the media have been clouding your minds with non-issues while they silently erase your freedoms. Now, the coup de grace.

On October 23rd the House of Representatives passed the Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007.

The first warning bell that should be going off in your head is that most of you have never heard of the Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act before. Go ahead and do a Google search of the Act right now. Oddly (or appropriately, if you’ve been paying attention) there is not a single mainstream media outlet with any story on the Act.

There are however, plenty of citizens on the internet very concerned about the Act’s contents.

One post on WashingtonWatch.com reads “This is among the worst, most repressive, fascistic bills I've ever seen. Using Fear, it takes away practically every remaining right you have, enabling 'thought crimes' worse than anything Soviet Russia offered. It gives almost unlimited freedom to designate anyone a terrorist, saying there are torrents of terrorist propaganda on the Net.”

The third finding of the Act states: “The Internet has aided in facilitating violent radicalization, ideologically based violence, and the homegrown terrorism process in the United States by providing access to broad and constant streams of terrorist-related propaganda to United States citizens.”

So who’s read 1984? Seen V For Vendetta? Get ready for life imitating art.

The Act creates a National Commission on the Prevention of Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism. It then defines ideologically based violence as “the use, planned use, or threatened use of force or violence by a group or individual to promote the group or individual's political, religious, or social beliefs.”

A student protest occupying the streets can easily be construed as a use of force for political or social beliefs. Disagree with the government? Think the Constitution should reign supreme and want to voice your beliefs? You, my friend, could be named a “homegrown terrorist”.

The Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007 now needs only a ‘Yes’ vote by the Senate to become law. I have a feeling President Bush isn’t busting out the veto for this one. If this Act passes, our Congress will spend hundreds of millions of dollars at a time when our budget is already wildly out of control to essentially criminalize Free Speech.

“If you understand what this bill does, it really sets the stage for further criminalization of protest,” Dennis Kucinich said. “This is the way our democracy little, by little, by little, is being stripped away from us. This bill, I believe, is a clear violation of the first amendment.”

You now have less than two weeks to register to vote in the Florida primary. The future of freedom in America, your freedom, depends on your actions. Register to vote.

This blog is intended to be an archive of the truth.

The truth (and when I say the truth I mean the Truth, the Whole Truth, and nothing but The Truth) is rarely if ever found on television.

Praise be to God the Truth is on the internet.

A problem for many? The internet lives in a million different places, addresses, forums, and links.

I intend to collect every news report, video, and truthful opinion piece I find that rarely gets reported on in the mainstream media.

A lot of my material will come from Digg.com, or as I call it, The Real News.

But hopefully, a lot of it will come from you. I have received thousands of e-mails in the time since my arrest, and hopefully I can put my notoriety to good use. You the people have demanded information, and you the people have also provided information. I have learned from your e-mails, and hopefully the truth will continue to out.

My e-mail is AndrewWilliamMeyer@gmail.com, and I will always post relevant, truthful material.

The time for important issues to surface is now.

God bless our world, and God bless you, the rarest of birds, the intelligent reader.
