On March 2, an email sent out by a Washington state legislator surfaced that indicated that he is in support of a new tax on bicycle sales which acts as a carbon tax forcyclists who pollute the environment through the increased expulsion of carbon dioxide. This new tax, which is part of current tax legislation being proposed in the state to help increase revenues for the budget, is primarily being argued to force cyclists to pay for road construction, but is now being justified as a tax on the citizens of Washington state for simply breathing.
Also, you claim that is is environmentally friendly to ride a bike. But if I am not mistaken a cyclists [sic] has an increased heart rate and respiration. That means the act of riding a bike results in greater emissions of carbon dioxide from the rider. Since CO2 is deemed a greenhouse gas and a pollutant, bicyclists are actually polluting when they ride. - Washington State Representative Ed Orcutt
The drive for implementing carbon taxes to stave off the concept of man-made global warming is a potentially trillion dollar industry, with many environmental activists, and government officials all vying for a share of the revenue pie. In California alone, former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger began the state’s Cap and Trade initiatives, which current Governor Jerry Brown has expanded upon during his administration. In an attempt to increase fiscal revenues by over $1 billion, California is now seeking to impose carbon credit fines on over 300 companies through law AB 32 which was passed in 2011.
Carbon Dioxide is a natural gas emission, and is a byproduct of the life sustaining action known as breathing. From its expulsion by living organisms, plant life takes in this gas, and returns oxygen to the air in a never ending cycle. Thus the determination by the EPA that carbon dioxide is a pollutant, and partial cause of global warming, now opens up the very act of being a living organism to government regulations, and potential tax burdens created by legislators for whatever agendas they see fit to create under the umbrella of global warming.

Here is what I want you to do.
The Chronicles of Freedom
With Ron Paul’s victory in Arizona over the weekend, where Paul won the majority of delegates along with Virginia where Paul is now poised to win there, one would ask, why the hec did Ron Paul send out an e-mail on Monday leading people to believe he’s dropping out of the race? In the letter Paul asks his supporters to mobilize and continue this battle for delegates on a state level.
First we must look back to where previous decisions by the Paul campaign were self destructing, such as the decision to pull out of South Carolina where Paul’s polling showed him jumping 9 points in 5 days to 20%. Spending a little money there could have helped him come in a close second or win that state. What a horrendous blunder, or was it? I believe it was a strategy to keep Paul in the race but not to win! The campaign claimed South Carolina was too expensive! This at a time when Paul was raising millions. A strong showing in South Carolina would have made Paul nearly unstoppable. Since South Carolina, Paul has struggled to gain traction. Yet within the last 4 weeks, Ron Paul’s efforts have again moved him into position to not only stop Mitt Romney’s momentum but Paul’s efforts are bearing so much fruit, Paul could and most likely would unseat Mitt Romney after the first ballot in Tampa. So, when your running for office not to win but to get your son a VP position, what do you do when you’re going to win? You sabotage your efforts.
This is exactly what has happened this week. Now, I want to point out the blame goes to Jessie Benton, Paul’s son-in-law and campaign manager. Benton was disturbed with the slowing donation base. Supporters have been holding back waiting for Ron Paul to say the words “I’m in this to win”, but it wasn’t happening. No win, No money!
Many believe Mondays Ron Paul letter was well orchestrated to put Paul back into the spotlight and that’s worked. No doubt he’s getting news! The problem for Paul is his followers are not about to give up. Ron Paul is headed for a victory in the Republican Primaries and he has nothing to say about it. Paul supporters angry as can be are now mobilizing to double their efforts to bring Ron Paul to the Presidency.
Paul’s campaign has put out disclaimers insisting the candidate is still in the race while blaming the media for exaggerating the message. Thousands of letters and articles are circulating about the candidate. PBS last night did a 10 minute segment on this chaos and everyone agreed that Ron Paul’s masses are not going to vote Mitt Romney and agreed that Ron Paul is taking this all the way.
Has a deal with Romney been struck? You bet there has! Something is going on behind the scene to insure a position for Rand Paul and/or a position for Ron Paul. In this campaign, for months I had been receiving letters from Ron Paul in my mail. Yet many months ago, the letters changed and started coming in from Rand Paul. Now all my (snail) mail is from Rand Paul.
The Republican establishment is shaking in their boots with the prospect that Paul’s masses will propel the good doctor to the nomination or that Paulite’s will leave and get behind Libertarian Gary Johnson. My advise to Paul Republicans is to listen to the good doctor. Take this fight all the way to the nomination. Mobilize your masses state by state where you have a chance to pick up delegates. Remember Ron Paul has won or is leading in about 15 states. Donate locally in states with an organized fight. Don’t get discouraged for you are about to make history! Remember the media and talk radio need you to be discouraged for a Romney victory! Also Remember, Romney’s puppets have been stealing Paul votes and sabotaging Paul’s efforts. If you feel compelled to boo Romney’s cronies, be polite but go ahead and boooooooooooo them gently. This is a revolution!
For those of you not Republican, prepare yourselves for a Libertarian Landslide with Gary Johnson, should Paul not get the nomination. Every indicator points to anyone but republican or democrat. The time is NOW, the date is 2012 and the revolution will not be stopped.
Today, Ron Paul is back on the campaign trail. Now that aught to tell you something!
Who is going to take the place of Ron Paul in Congress when he is gone in 2013?
Democratic Party have their Candidate Barack Hussein Obama and there will be no challenge contender for the Democratic ticket / if you voted for him last time and don’t want him again ( Save the Republic! ) you must change your party affiliation to REPUBLICAN for a choice of challenger in the Republican Presidential Primary.
This can be the transformation of America back to the One Nation under God our Founders gave us, a Republic! Please take action and Vote for Ron Paul. Do you need to find info about Ron Paul?
Dr. Paul’s consistent voting record prompted one Congressman to comment that “Ron Paul personifies the Founding Fathers’ ideal of the citizen-statesman. He makes it clear that his principles will never be compromised, and they never are.” Another Congresswoman added that “There are few people in public life who, through thick and thin, rain or shine, stick to their principles. Ron Paul is one of those few.”
The Ron Paul FREEDOM PRINCIPLES

- The government’s monetary role is to maintain the integrity of the monetary unit, not participate in fraud.
- Government exists to protect liberty, not to redistribute wealth or to grant special privileges.
- The lives and actions of people are their own responsibility, not the government’s.
The republican establishment tonight is helping itself to defeat in the 2012 presidential elections. Republican talk radio has made a wrong turn on a one way street with it’s gamble to attack presidential candidate Ron Paul, anyway they can. The garbage they are spewing brings back memories of tactics in Germany heading into World War II, as Paul has now taken the lead in Iowa and it looks like he’s inching into the lead nationally. There are great similarities between 1939 propaganda tactics designed to emotionalize a bad economy, and republican scare tactics used now. This is no different! If the goal of republican talk radio is to unite us, they have done just the opposite.
Ron Paul the champion of liberty has been hot on the trail of those who have ruined our economy by sucking 11 trillion dollars out of American bank accounts and into the coffers of a select few mostly over sea’s and unfortunately a lot of republicans are guilty of aiding and abetting the enemies of the American taxpayers. These crooks want Paul gone anyway they can, make no mistake about it!
The Ron Paul camp, however have prepared for these desperate attacks and sent out a series of memo’s warning patriots not to be swayed by the onslaught of expected propaganda to come our way. Most attacks began early last week by talk show host Mark Levine, known as the nurd’s nurd of radio and Shaun Hannity (who never saw a war he didn’t like), who took a lot of snowballs to his buttocks in the 2008, New Hampshire primary, by Paul enthusiast.
Recently,the republican New World Order establishment successfully removed Herman Cain from contention in the presidential race only a few weeks ago, after releasing personal unsubstantiated charges against Cain. Afterwards, may of Cains top aids and supporters rallied behind Congressman Paul, bringing him into the lead in Iowa..
The good news is that unlike the other GOP candidates, Ron Paul’s numbers have climbed rapidly since the attacks began last week and Paul’s monumental sized army of volunteers have rallied to the call of honor by donating more than 4 million dollars since last Friday. It’s really getting exciting!!!!. The republicans are so stupid if they believe attacking the Father of the Tea Party and the greatest statesman of our time, will not backfire! At best, they are pushing Ron Paul into a third party run which will only have one absolute outcome, a republican defeat! Most Paul enthusiast want just that, a republican defeat with Ron Paul as President. Bring it on!!!!
Ron Paul, Ronald Reagan’s convention floor manager at the 1980 Republican National Convention is headed to the presidency and Reagan would be very proud.
David Muhlhausen, a research fellow in empirical policy analysis at the Heritage Foundation, recently spoke with Homeland Security NewsWire’s executive editor Eugene K. Chow; in their interview, Muhlhausen discusses the efficacy of DHS’p Urban Areas Security Initiative (UASI) grant program, the need for objective evaluation of UASI as well as other DHS grants, and various DHS grants that need to be carefully examined for potential cost savingsDavid Muhlhausen of the Heritage Foundation // Source http://www.homelandsecuritynewswire.com
Homeland Security NewsWire: You recently called into question a report by the National Urban Area Initiative Association that detailed the effectiveness of DHS’s Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI) grant program. Given your thoughts on the report, in your opinion has UASI been an effective use of federal funds?
David Muhlhausen: Currently, there appears to be a virtual absence of independent, objective evidence indicating the effectiveness of UASI. The absence of evidence does not mean that the program is effective or ineffective. We simply do not have valid information on the program’s effectiveness.
HSNW: In your comments on the National Urban Area Initiative Association, you spend a lot of time discussing metrics and measuring the efficacy of grant programs. Has DHS done a sufficient job overseeing its grant programs and ensuring that federal money has been spent effectively at the local level? Read more
