"If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter."
                                             -- George Washington

"If we stuck to the Constitution as written, we would have: no federal meddling in our schools; no Federal Reserve; no U.S. membership in the UN; no gun control; and no foreign aid.

We would have no welfare for big corporations, or the "poor"; no American troops in 100 foreign countries; no NAFTA, GATT, or "fast-track"; no arrogant federal judges usurping states rights; no attacks on private property; no income tax. We could get rid of most of the cabinet departments, most of the agencies, and most of the budget."

Liberty Defined: 50 Essential Issues That Affect Our Freedom by Dr. Ron Paul

"Freedom is not defined by safety. Freedom is defined by the ability of citizens to live without government interference. Government cannot create a world without risks, nor would we really wish to live in such a fictional place. Only a totalitarian society would even claim absolute safety as a worthy ideal, because it would require total state control over its citizens' lives. Liberty has meaning only if we still believe in it when terrible things happen and a false government security blanket beckons."
                                             -- Congressman Ron Paul

End the Fed by Dr. Ron Paul

"The government is best which governs least."

Remember those taxpayer-funded commercials with kindly Andy Griffith - the ones that promoted the ways the so-unaptly-titled Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act supposedly strengthens Medicare?

Donald Berwick, director of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, says these ads are fundamentally different than the Andy Griffith ads, even though they also use taxpayer funding to tout the still-highly-controversial law. "Everyone is interested in prevention," he said. "I don't think this is a partisan issue." But even if that's true - that most people recognize preemptive care goes a long way to lower costs - does that mean it's the federal government's responsibility to provide, advertise and urge preventive services on the public?

A flaw in Samsung Smart TVs was discovered that could allow hackers to control the camera and watch users in their living rooms.

Today's high-end televisions are almost all equipped with "smart" PC-like features, including Internet connectivity, apps, microphones and cameras. But a recently discovered security hole in some Samsung Smart TVs shows that many of those bells and whistles aren't ready for prime time. The flaws in Samsung Smart TVs, which have now been patched, enabled hackers to remotely turn on the TVs' built-in cameras without leaving any trace of it on the screen. While you're watching TV, a hacker anywhere around the world could have been watching you. Hackers also could have easily rerouted an unsuspecting user to a malicious website to steal bank account information.

How to Win at Voting. Here's a sad truth: if you're going to vote in the 2012 election because you're afraid the Right Candidate won't win (or the Wrong Candidate will) if you don't, then you're wasting your time.

The probability that you die in an auto accident driving to the polling place is higher than the probability that you cast the decisive ballot. I'll be blunt: if you vote for Obama because you're afraid of a Republican win, or if you vote for the Republican because you're afraid of an Obama win, then you're wasting your time. You're also wasting your vote. You've probably heard the claim that politics is too partisan, too nasty, and too disingenuous. This is perhaps to be expected; to paraphrase the philosopher Jason Brennan (whose excellent The Ethics of Voting I just reviewed for Public Choice and will discuss here in greater detail later), elections encouraged civilized conversation and thoughtful, reasoned reflection the way fraternity parties encourage temperance and sobriety. This is especially true of Presidential elections.

Numerous studies, both here and in other parts of the country, have highlighted the struggles of youth who age out of foster care, finding they are more likely to be homeless, unemployed, under-educated and in jail.

One report released this month found nearly 60 percent of young men had been convicted of a crime, compared with 10 percent of young men who had never been in foster care. For women, three-quarters were on public assistance by age 24.

Site limits 'Innocence of Muslims' in Islamic countries but allows video of lethal attack on American base.

"Those who came here insulting Islam and the Koran, I will take revenge on them," said a Taliban suicide bomber with a chilling smile. Moments later he drove a truck loaded with 10,000 kg of explosives into U.S. Forward-Operating Base Salerno in Khost, Afghanistan, killing two U.S. soldiers. It was all captured on a Taliban propaganda video narrated by an Al Jazeera reporter. It's currently available for anyone to see on YouTube. More shocking, the Taliban have their own YouTube channel, though it is mostly dormant.

In the latest gross violation of free speech committed by radical left-wing tech giants, YouTube has now deleted the entire Health Ranger video channel, wiping out over 1,700 videos covering everything from nutrition, natural medicine, history...

Over the last two weeks, YouTube has been on a censorship rampage that's apparently run by the SPLC , a radical left-wing hate group that despises Christianity, the Second Amendment and patriots in particular. Hundreds of prominent conservative video channels have been targeted for termination by YouTube, leading many independent media leaders like myself to call for government regulation of YouTube to protect free speech and end the tyranny.

The Florida duo behind a popular zombie prank YouTube video were arrested and are facing charges following their latest prank.

Jonathan Vanegas, 20, and Vitaly Zdorovetskiy, 20, both of Delray Beach, whose "Miami Zombie Attack Prank!" video was featured on Comedy Central's Tosh.0, said they were filming a new prank Friday outside a Publix market in Boca Raton when they ran into trouble, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Tuesday. The prank involved Vanegas running the camera when Zdorovetskiy, dressed in a suit, set down a briefcase and told a man emerging from the market that they had only 60 seconds to get away from the briefcase.

Source reveals site had been targeted by 'flagging' campaign.

One of the most popular Christian apologetics YouTube channels has been restored fully to good standing after the account was terminated by Google "for reasons that were never clearly defined," the owner of the channel told WND in an exclusive interview. Pastor Carl Gallups, whose new book "The Magic Man in the Sky" comes out on May 15, credited an article which appeared at WND.com on May 1 with igniting a firestorm of protest from the more than 21,000 subscribers to the PPSimmons YouTube Channel. That helped lead to the right person to find out why the channel was "flagged" and removed from good standing with YouTube, which is owned by Google.
