What Does President Barak Obama’s Afghanistan Speech Mean To Me

It’s easy to have a hard time putting together all the pieces necessary to fully grasp what the President says in a speech.  When dealing with an issue as complicated as war, it’s no surprise that this is the case.  Although parts of the speech may be comprehended, there are deeper currents of meaning below the surface that are easy to miss.  CATO Institute does a great job in their December 2nd Daily podcast of putting some of the pieces together, and explaining what this speech means to you and I.

Listen to this short daily podcast from CATO Institute entitled “Obama’s Afghanistan Contradiction”.  (requires flash)

Ron Paul weighs in : Medical Care is Not a Right.

Ron Paul was recently featured on NPR’s (National Public Radio) show All Things Considered and was able to highlight his views on the current health care reform and talk about his new book End the Fed. There are not many politicians in Washington D.C. today who are able to answer questions in such a straight forward way.  He explains why he answers the way he does. I greatly appreciate this no-nonsense approach to public service, and look forward to supporting as many liberty minded candidates as possible in the upcoming 2010 mid-term election.
