Update: A Texas petition to secede from the union now includes 50 states. However, the secession petitions, which tops 100,000 signatures, is not supported by a several Republican governors. In the wake of Barack Obama‘s victory, GOP officials are hoping to reach across the aisle and rebuild the party’s image based on the post-election mandate.
The “We the People” movement, according to a Nov. 14 Huffington Post report, has topped 50 states wishing to secede from the United States government.
Ironically, the heads of several states are not on the sides of their constituencies. GOP governors are saying no to the secession petitions filed in several states.

Keith Fitz-Gerald: If I didn’t know any better, I’d think there’s a small but growing group of people in Washington who think it would actually be good if we temporarily went over the fiscal cliff.
I say that because I am seeing a smattering of articles recently suggesting that somehow going over the cliff “won’t be all that bad” or that we’re “really just talking about cuts that need to happen in the first place.”
President Obama seems to think the same way judging by the fact that he’s dug in his heels, telling the GOP there will be no fiscal cliff bargain that doesn’t include tax hikes.

the 2012 Republican Nomination

Wait, isn’t Dr. Ron Paul out of the presidential race? Isn’t it all tied up nicely in a bow with the Romney/Ryan ticket?
Why would the GOP be scared of Ron Paul but end up nominating him?
Romney and the GOP have demonstrated both poor judgment and poor sportsmanship that might cost them by damaging Romney’s electability among the Ron Paul supporters thus leading to a splitting of votes, which in turn, could cost the GOP the entire election.
Dr. Ron Paul is still in the race for president and is a strong contender for the 2012 GOP nomination.

House Gears Up to Repeal Obamacare (Again)

Less than two weeks after the Supreme Court upheld the president’s health care reform law, the House of Representatives is set to vote to repeal the legislation again in what Democrats have decried as a political show vote while also embracing it as another opportunity to explain the perks of the law to voters.
Lawmakers will begin debating the GOP’s proposal to repeal the law Tuesday, with a final vote expected Wednesday afternoon.
To date, the has voted 32 times to d
House defund, dismantle and repeal the Affordable Care Act. In one of the first acts of the new Republican-controlled House of Representatives 18 months ago, the House first voted to repeal the health care law, January 19, 2011, passing the measure 245-189. At the time, just three House Democrats — Reps. Dan Boren of Oklahoma, Mike McIntyre of North Carolina, and Mike Ross of Arkansas — joined the House GOP in supporting repeal. A month later, repeal failed in the Democrat-controlled Senate 47-51.

GOP to Kick Out Paul Supporters?

July 3, 2012
There has been a lot of talk about not seating Ron Paul’s supporters or delegates at the Republican Convention. They fear the general and oft heard refrain of Paulites that they will not vote for Romney, he’s the same as Obama. Ron Paul or nobody – maybe Gary Johnson, but not Mitt Romney under any circumstances.
As readers of Libertarian actions in Florida know right before the GOP convention Ron Paul supporters will hold not one but two “FreedomFests”. One > in Tampa, Florida Freedom Fest 2012 the other on the I4 corridort at Fantasy of Flight between Tampa and Orlando, Freedom Festival 2012. Libertarians and Ron Paul supporters are making libertarian ideas the topic of the convention.

Paul Grassroots Group

A coalition of lawyers, paralegals, and concerned citizens has filed a civil lawsuit against the GOP for alleged election fraud and other misconduct at GOP primaries and caucuses during the 2012 primary election phase. This is a major development that many in the Ron Paul community have been seeking ever since the Iowa Caucuses, when there were suspicions that shenanigans may have occurred.
Two grass roots groups, Election Fraud Remedy, and Lawyers for Ron Paul, are working together pro bono to seek an immediate injunction that would make it clear that all delegates are able to vote their conscience at the convention in Tampa, Florida. The suit is initially focusing on the alleged intimidation of Ron Paul delegates and improper practices at party primaries, caucuses, and conventions.
A spokesperson for the coalition described the GOP as having devolved into a criminal enterprise, which is a serious charge. Down the road, the group also plans to file a RICO suit that will attempt to expose widespread election fraud around the country. This looks like a serious legal effort. It will be interesting to see how the mainstream media responds.
