Ron Paul Airs First Ad In New Hampshire

Sunday, October 28th, 2007

Ron Paul has produced his first ad that will begin airing in New Hampshire. The ad shows an array of various people telling the camera why they like Ron Paul. The acting in the ad is done by Ron Paul volunteers saving the campaign money but the acting is not always completely believable.

As a Ron Paul supporter it is good to see that Ron Paul is producing a professional looking production.

Dick Morris Has His Head In The Sand

Monday, October 15th, 2007

Dick Morris thinks Americans have their head in the sand because they did not view terrorism as the biggest problem facing America.

Asked in the latest Gallup Poll what are the major problems facing America, an incredible 4 percent said terrorism. Ninety-six percent are living with their heads in the sand. Thirty-three percent cited Iraq, 22 percent mentioned some economic problem, 13 percent spoke of healthcare issues and 9 percent mentioned immigration

It is understandable that more Americans would be concerned with the war in Iraq over the war in terrorism because more Americans are dying because of terrorism in the war in Iraq. Just since the surge started in February there have been 743 American and 40 British casualties.

The Tube Is Closed

Friday, October 12th, 2007

Video Music Channel The Tube is closed. It went off the air earlier this week. They tended to play videos that were not quite cool enough for VH1 Classic but there does not seem to be a big market for VH1 Classic minus.

The music blog Idolator reports that the station closed due to financial reasons.

It is always to see a station that plays music videos to go off the air. MTV, and VH1 might as well be off the air for their lack of music and videos.

Chris Bennett Anounces Candidacy for LP Nomination For VP

Monday, October 8th, 2007

Chris Bennett has announced he is seeking the Libertarian Party’s nomination for Vice President in 2008.

Bloggers may recognize Chris Bennett from previously posting on the Hammer of Truth blog and now posting on Last Free

From Chris Bennett’s Press Release:

I’m announcing my candidacy for the Libertarian
Party’s 2008 Vice-Presidential Nomination.

A little background about me: I have been a
libertarian activist for almost 16 years, helping
Libertarian and small l-libertarian candidates
throughout the years. I was Aaron Russo’s scheduling
coordinator during his run for the 2004 LP
Presidential nomination. I am 35 and married with two
children. I’m a senior at University of Illinois at
Springfield pursuing a degree in political studies and
a minor in economics and I graduate in May, 2008, two
weeks before the national convention in Denver. I am
currently the Legislative Chair for the Libertarian
Party of Illinois. I have fought for for better ballot
access for third parties in Illinois, which according
to Richard Winger over at Ballot Access News, has one
of the most difficult ballot access laws in this
country for third parties.

I will not make promises I can not keep. I do not have
200,000 dollars in future contributions and I am not
endorsed by a famous dead person. However there are
some promises I will keep:

I am strongly against the invasion and the “police
action” in Iraq and will help push for an anti-war
resolution at the Denver Convention.

I am against a fair tax and I will continue to fight
to decrease the tax burden for all Americans.

I will continue to fight to restore our civil
liberties and constitutional rights and fight to
eliminate the Patriot Act, the Real ID Act, the
Military Commissions Act and the North American Union.

As an African-American, I will use my candidacy to
recruit more minorities and women into the libertarian

As a soon-to-be college graduate, I will continue to
convince younger voters and non-voters that the
Libertarian Party is the future not the two “boot on
your neck” parties and use my candidacy to re-energize
libertarian college campus and local organizations
across the country.

If I am nominated, I will help/assist state parties on
getting our presidential ticket on their respective
state ballots.

If I am nominated, I will assist serious Libertarian
candidates running for office in all facets of their
campaign across the country.

The days of a dormant Libertarian Party VP candidate
are over. Our VP candidate should be as active as our
Presidential candidate and I will proudly work with
whoever you choose as our Presidential candidate in
order to spread our message of liberty and freedom to
the American people.
