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.

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.
