One of the oldest and most storied traditions of the Senate made a sudden return to Capitol Hill on Wednesday when a junior senator seized control of the chamber with an hours-long filibuster involving rambling speeches aimed at blocking a vote on President Obama’s choice to lead the CIA.
Led by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) with help from other junior senators, the filibuster stretched nearly 13 hours — with the Senate adjourning at about 12:40 a.m. Thursday — and was aimed at drawing attention to deep concern on both sides of the aisle about the administration’s use of unmanned aerial drones in its fight against terrorists and whether the government would ever use them in the United States.

Ron Paul’s Political Legacy
Will Be Decided TODAY
Will Paul’s bill to audit “high exalted priesthood” Federal Reserve pass today?
July 25, 2012
Wednesday the 25th of July is the day that libertarian Congressman Ron Paul’s political legacy will be written, as the House votes on his bill to audit the Federal Reserve.
In order to pass, the Federal Reserve Transparency Act, H.R. 459, needs two-thirds of the House to vote in favor. That equates to around 292 votes.
Last month, a bipartisan vote in the House Oversight Committee was almost completely unanimous in approving the bill, advancing it to the House floor.
The bill has 270 co-sponsors, including nearly four dozen Democrats, and insiders believe that every Republican representative will support the legislation, meaning that barring some major flip flopping, the bill will be successfully passed.

Ron Paul Rips Romney and Obama For Debating Petty Issues

Texas Congressman Ron Paul is urging GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney to release more of his tax returns, claiming it is what the American people want.
Paul told Politico in a candid interview that he isn’t sure why Romney hasn’t released his tax returns yet but says that it would be good for Romney if he did so, peppering in his usual lamenting about the bipartisan nature of both parties.
“It’s a shame. The important issue is [what] the two candidates seem to agree on,” Paul said. “They don’t really disagree with militarism overseas, they don’t disagree with the Federal Reserve system and the bailouts, and they don’t disagree on basically whether the role of federal government is wealth redistribution through welfare. So instead, they’re talking about tax returns and that to me is so disappointing.”
“It’s all a charade, I think it’s all contrived to not have a debate,” Paul said.
It is a shame that out of all the vital issues that America faces, this is what the Romney vs. Obama campaign is currently occupied with. And Paul is absolutely right. Romney is someone that is vying for perhaps the most powerful political position in world history and the head of a government that has absolutely no problems violating the privacy and liberties of the American people, especially when it comes to filing taxes. The least Romney could do is do the same that is asked of us.

“Elektable” is a short fictional film about Ron Paul and the amazing political revolution he has inspired. The movie explores truth in the media and how it secretly holds a deep affection for Dr. Paul.
This film features copyrighted content. Feel free to share this official version far and wide but please do not re-edit this film and share online.
On a more serious note, Ron Paul still has a chance to win the GOP nomination. This will only happen if a majority of Americans realize that he is the true champion of the people. No amount of money and blatant blackouts can deny Dr. Paul the nomination if enough people get behind him and his message.
