    RFID Cards Are A Comin' (to Students)

    Submitted by MrMahn on Sat, 08/11/2012 - 01:40
    Daily Paul Liberty Forum

    I am a student that will be going to a high school in the Northside District in Texas. I just got a letter in the mail notifying me that the school will be starting the "Student Locator Project." Basically, every student is given a RFID Card that they will have to wear the whole school day. With these cards, the students can be tracked while they are on the campus. They also will not be able to get a school-provided meal or check out a book from the library without showing their card.

    Yeah.... this is bad. It seems to me that they're doing this to get the young kids all cozy and OK with the inevitable push for a National ID chip. Oh, and of course, they're doing all of this in the name of "safety." Just thought you guys might want to hear about this.

    Another Huge Gaffe: Romney Introduces Ryan as ‘Next President’

    Join me in welcoming the next president of the United States, Paul Ryan,” Mr. Romney said, as Mr. Ryan took the stage.”

    The actual presidential candidate quickly realized his error. “Every now and then I’m known to make a mistake,” Mr. Romney said. “I did not make a mistake with this guy I can tell you this he’s going to be the next vice president of the United States.”

    Romney Picks Imitation Ron Paul as Veep

    Posted by Lew Rockwell on August 11, 2012 08:49 AM

    Paul Ryan can sound like Ron Paul on spending and deficits, though as a neocon, he is an ardent champion of perpetual war and global domination by the US empire. That is, he is a phony. His famous plan barely touches the government, while actually increasing "defense," though he talks a good game; that is, he is a lying politician dedicated to the expansion and glory of the State, just like Romney, while claiming to want to cut. But it's interesting that Romney felt he could not pick a Portman nor a Pawlenty but rather had to choose an ersatz Ron. Oh, and note that Ron-hater Bill Kristol is the patron of Ryan.

    ~ Romney & Ryan - Synchronized Flip Flopping Team

    Submitted by Barracuda_Trader on Sat, 08/11/2012 - 15:28
    Daily Paul Liberty Forum

    Just one example -- kind of a core issue, I'd say.

    At an Atlas Society meeting celebrating Ayn Rand's life in 2005, Ryan said that "The reason I got involved in public service, by and large, if I had to credit one thinker, one person, it would be Ayn Rand", and "I grew up reading Ayn Rand and it taught me quite a bit about who I am and what my value systems are, and what my beliefs are. Itís inspired me so much that itís required reading in my office for all my interns and my staff."

    In response to criticism from Catholic leaders, in 2012 Ryan distanced himself from Rand's Objectivist philosophy, telling National Review, "I reject her philosophy. It's an atheist philosophy. It reduces human interactions down to mere contracts and it is antithetical to my worldview", and noting that his views were more aligned with those of the Roman Catholic philosopher and saint, Thomas Aquinas, than Ayn Rand. ďDonít give me Ayn Rand,Ēhe said in 2012.

    OP/ED: Paul Ryan is No Ron Paul

    Paul Ryan's economic solutions fall far short of Ron Paul's plan, says 'unimpressed' founder of NH Tea Party Coalition.

    By Jane Aitken

    Founder, NH Tea Party Coalition

    There is much abuzz over Mitt Romney's announcement naming Congressman Paul Ryan from Wisconsin as his vice presidential running mate.

    But many see it as unimpressive, and even premature and just another indication of a desperate move to distract from the idea that the "presumptive nominee" has in truth, been fighting for his political life.

    A nominee has yet to be chosen at the RNC Convention in Tampa later this month. And some say recent attempts by the Romney campaign to rule-break and manipulate the caucuses in order to steal delegates from other candidates is a glaring indication that Romney himself isn't all that confident.

    One noted liberty activist even suggested that Romney had chosen an "imitation Ron Paul".
    There are at least two, if not more, factions of tea partiers who will be swelling the ranks of the convention and at separate tea party rallies, and none of them want Romney as the nominee.

    Add to that, a new group of social conservatives who have jumped on the 'Dump Romney' bandwagon urging delegates not to vote for Mitt Romney at the convention, even if they're bound to him. (RNC rules say NO delegates are bound) So it looks like Romney recognizes that he will be bracing for a fight.

    Asked if the choice of Paul Ryan would make any difference to conservatives, constitutionalists, and tea party types as to whether it would help them come around to get in the Romney camp, most who are familiar with Ryan's record say "not a chance".

    Here's why: An evaluation of Ryan's record by the Republican Liberty Caucus in 2008 stated actions that likely would not sit well with small government conservatives. It stated "It appears that when Paul Ryan’s party is doing the spending, raising debt limits, and acting unconstitutionally… Ryan goes with the flow. Congressman Ryan’s actual record leaves much to be desired. The issue Ryan is most known for is his interest in cutting the deficit and balancing the budget. But why did the Congressman vote to bail out the auto industry, to pass the Medicare package to the tune of $400 billion, and to nationalize education via No Child Left Behind?"

    Paul Ryan on Bailouts and Government Stimuli

    -Voted YES on TARP (200
    -Voted YES on Economic Stimulus HR 5140 (200
    -Voted YES on $15B bailout for GM and Chrysler. (Dec 200
    -Voted YES on $192B additional anti-recession stimulus spending. (Jul 2009)

    Paul Ryan on Entitlement Programs

    -Voted YES on limited prescription drug benefit for Medicare recipients. (Nov 2003)
    -Voted YES on providing $70 million for Section 8 Housing vouchers. (Jun 2006)
    -Voted YES on extending unemployment benefits from 39 weeks to 59 weeks. (Oct 200
    -Voted YES on Head Start Act (2007)

    Paul Ryan on Education
    Rep. Ryan went along with the Bush Administration in supporting more federal involvement in education. This is contrary to the traditional Republican position, which included support for abolition of the Department of Education and decreasing federal involvement in education.

    -Voted YES on No Child Left Behind Act (2001)

    Paul Ryan on Civil Liberties

    -Voted YES on federalizing rules for driver licenses to hinder terrorists. (Feb 2005)
    -Voted YES on making the PATRIOT Act permanent. (Dec 2005)
    -Voted YES on allowing electronic surveillance without a warrant. (Sep 2006)

    Paul Ryan on War and Intervention Abroad

    -Voted YES on authorizing military force in Iraq. (Oct 2002)
    -Voted YES on emergency $78B for war in Iraq & Afghanistan. (Apr 2003)
    -Voted YES on declaring Iraq part of War on Terror with no exit date. (Jun 2006)
    -Voted NO on redeploying US troops out of Iraq starting in 90 days. (May 2007)

    Congressman Ryan supports the United Nations, the World Trade Organization, federal bailouts, increased federal involvement in education, unconstitutional and undeclared wars, Medicare Part D (a multi-trillion dollar unfunded liability), stimulus spending, and foreign aid.

    According to Michelle Malkin in 2009, “[Paul Ryan]"... "hyped as a conservative rock-star" .... "gave one of the most hysterical speeches in the rush to pass TARP last fall; voted for the auto bailout; and voted with the Barney Frank-Nancy Pelosi AIG bonus-bashing stampede." Milwaukee blogger Nick Schweitzer wrote: ‘He ought to be apologizing for his previous votes, not pretending he was being responsible the entire time, but I don’t see one bit of regret for what he did previously. And I’ll be damned if I’m going to let him get away with it’.”

    In this attached YouTube video of Congressman Ron Paul speaking to Neil Cavuto, Paul stated he thought Paul Ryan's budget plan "doesn't cut anything of substance". Paul is the only other candidate whose name will appear on the ballot at the RNC Convention and who is seen by many as a breath of fresh air for daring to tell the truth about many issues.

    Cavuto admitted that Ryan's budget, compared to Paul's, was "mild".

    So when it comes to Paul Ryan, I guess you could sum it up this way: "the more things change, the more they stay the same".
