GOP candidate Thomas Massie's victory in KY-4 was apparently no accident; as much of his victory is being attributed to a Super PAC called Liberty for All. Which was founded by a 21-yr old college student in Texas and is meant to support the beliefs espoused by Ron Paul.

It was a pretty interesting read and makes me wonder if Ron Paul supporters need to be taken more seriously then they are now.

When your dead grandfather (a billionaire oil baron) leaves you with very large amounts of cash, anything is possible.

Hilariously appropriate.

The problem with free speech is that its hard, and self-censorship is the path of least resistance. But, once you learn to keep yourself from voicing unwelcome thoughts, you forget how to think themhow to think freely at alland ideas perish at conception. Washiqur Rahman and Avijit Roy had more to fear than most of us, but they lived and died as free men.

This is a travesty, and is a pretty clear case of why the estate tax needs to be increased as well as Citizens United overturned.
