Relevant Issues


"Watch What You Say"

This Wired article from Mar 2012 long ago extensively documented the surveillance issues finally hitting mainstream awareness in June 2013.

"A Secret Deal on Drones, Sealed in Blood"

Article by Mark Mazzetti at The New York Times documents the CIA's use of drone killings for hire.

Bill of Rights

The Bill of Rights Institute provides this insightful and brief summary of each of the first amendments.

"The Gangster Bank Collusion"

The investment banks conspire in their bidding for billion dollar business, like a gangster’s fixed racket, and then gently get their hand slapped. Be warned, this Matt Taibi article in Rollingstone mixes high level research with low level, rough language.

Follow the Money

When one person or organization gives to both parties in an election, can the motivation really be ideological? Follow how much money each candidate receives from each person, company, or industry.

Campaign Finance

Retired senator admits that from the day after each election until the next election, his primary focus was fund raising. This is what the collected power of Loyal 9 is gathered to override.

Privacy

Navigate the internet world while hanging on to your privacy.

Hillsdale College Constitution Lessons

Polished and powerful, this esteemed online course, Constitution 101 is free, though the college accepts donations.

Constitution Lessons

We love this series by Michael Badnarik, free on youtube. A worthwhile investment of your time that gets even better as it goes along. It’s not slick -- just a regular ol’ Joe in a classroom, but we think of Mr. Gadnarik as the anti-lobbiest. Should be required viewing for all politicians.

Be Prepared

If you've ever been to the store when city water supply has been cut off, you've seen shelves emptied in minutes. The economy doesn't need to be blowing apart tomorrow to be inspired by the scouts to be ready for anything: broken water main, trucker strike, drought, war rationing, inflation triggered by the fed, job loss,etc, etc, etc.
