I Actually Did Vote for the $87 Billion, Before I voted Against It

Maybe President Obama could say: "I opposed the unlawful detainment before I devised a new system for it"

I tend to avoid bashing the President in general because there's plenty of people doing it, but this clip isn't from a Bush cheerleader. Rachel Maddow has been accused of being about as liberal as they come. How bad is it when liberal news casters can't find a way to support your policies?

In case you don't like watching video clips, or can't where you are:

President Obama gives a speech standing in front of the original copy of the Constitution of the United States of America, and proceeds to bash the Bush administration's policies of detainment and refusal to allow prisoners due process. All the while, he trumpets phrases such as "an abiding confidence in the rule of law", or "to ensure that they are in line with the rule of law", yet unveils a new plan to "have a thorough process of periodic review so that any prolonged detention is carefully evaluated and justified".

Holey Roof Batman! We can have our cake and EAT IT TOO! The cowboy administration of the past formed an "ad-hoc legal system" that was an abomination to the rule of law, but President Obama is going to make sure that the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches work TOGETHER to eliminate personal liberty. Change?! Not one bit.

I am sick to death of Democrats fawning over how pleasant this President is to listen to and "we finally have a literate man in the White House", and the Republicans are falling all over themselves claiming that this man is an all new downfall of our nation.

The Federal government doesn't care about you or your rights. They are collecting power as fast as they can, and they're using partisan hatred to achieve it.

Greene County Coordinator

Eric Vought, the Region 7 Coordinator for Campaign for Liberty has recently enlisted me as the Greene County Coordinator. This position is responsible for all activities in the County, and I have been crunching numbers and spreadsheets trying to contact as many people as possible in a short amount of time.

I sent out several emails, and hope to make contact via phone to a select few people. I am very curious to find out if anyone out there has any advice for organizing and coordinating among political activists, especially Liberty loving ones that are probably often about as easy to lead as cats.

What days of the week and times of day seem to be the most successful at trying to contact people? What types of things offend people, and are there ways to leave a positive impression even to people that don't want to think about politics?

If you are a reader that doesn't know anything about this Campaign for Liberty thing, I suggest you go read about it.

We're having a meeting Saturday May 30th from 7PM - 9PM at the Library Center (south Campbell), and any are welcome to attend. This will be an informational meeting about what the Campaign for Liberty is trying to achieve on a local level. If you're a fan of the Constitution, limited government, and freedom in general, I think we have something that can interest you. Please consider dropping by and checking things out.

Washington D.C. is in the Crosshairs (Legislatively)

Support for HR 1207 has been growing all across the country from a surprisingly diverse coalition of people. Tomorrow in the Washington Times, an open letter to the House of Representatives will be published on page A5.

HR 1207 is a bill that allows the Government Accountability Office to Audit the Federal Reserve.

Read a full introduction and the plain text of the article on the Campaign For Liberty blog.

Also, you should check out HR 833 as well.
