Also, I totally thought that was part of the Zeitgeist movie thing initially when I saw the name... :P

 

Anyway, I found this pretty crazy:

Kelly Clarkson sales spike 440% on Amazon after Ron Paul endorsement

As an update to the Kelly Clarkson story, I saw her at 1005% earlier in the evening, 850% now though.  Also, she's now at #2 best seller in entire music category (#1 in all her sub categories), and the top 'mover and shaker'.

EDIT:

And not just her new album, some of her other albums are up 320%, 273%, & 86%

Aw, made me cry crying

I like how one of the pictures on Google was my avatar :)

Yeah I thought of you when I first saw it.  But yeah it kind of pisses me off that those venus idiots have commandeered the useful term "zeitgeist", but thankfully Google and Wikipedia have paid no mind...

Google Zeitgeist (googlezeitgeist.com)

People at the Daily Paul pissing me off by supporting eminent domain "for the greater good." I do think, though, that I am making some headway.

wtf?  That's almost oxymoronic to me, but I guess it just shows how easy it can be sometimes to forget most Paul supporters are still just statists at the core.

Here are a few links off the top of my head that may help...

 

Donald Trump’s Eminent-Domain Empire

The Battle For Brooklyn: Eminent Domain Abuse Gone Wild

The Tragedy of Urban Renewal: The destruction and survival of a New York City neighborhood

TRUMPED: The Donald, The Widow and Eminent Domain

Eminent Domain Gone Wild

Billionaires vs. Brooklyn's Best Bar : Eminent Domain Abuse & The Atlantic Yards Project

Law, Property Rights, and Air Pollution

 

Also a quick search turned up these playlists, but I haven't looked at what all they contain.  The second looks pretty good...over 36 hours of content, including small news reports...

Eminent Domain

Eminent Domain is Evil

They went into some circle arguing that opposing Keystone XL is bad because having the Federal government prevent states from using eminent domain is unconstitutional.

There was also something about the founders using eminent domain and hence it being legitimate :P

Yeah that's about what I would have guessed.  That's about the time you have to break out the Lysander.  This is also where Graham's videos are most useful (especially the second one)...

Ron Paul is a Voluntarist

Where do Ron Paul's ideas come from?

 

I had a decent back and forth in Youtube PMs with a Paul supporter of the "Constitutionalist" persuasion.  I'll reproduce it somewhere on here.

This kind of hit the right nerve with me...

 

via DailyPaul:

EVERYONE! Stop what you're doing for 5 minutes. I need you to see this.

Please take 5 minutes away from our fight for liberty and the election of Ron Paul to enjoy this important message.

Here is to all my dear friends in the revolution whom have and continue to change my life.

For all the hard work and relentless effort from the morning sun till dine. I raise a cup o' kindness yet....to you...for Auld Lang Syne

Technically it was intended as a December post, and I felt it worked better as an ender as opposed to a starter.
