Ron Paul and Slavery

For those progressives who still live the Sisyphean illusion that Ron Paul is one of you.

These views are nothing new, by the way. Paul has always felt this way about the Civil War and slavery. And of course these views are just a natural extension of Paul's views on the Tenth Amendment, which extends to opposition to all civil rights laws under those most leftist of institutions, states' rights and private property. But hey, Mike Huckabee commuted a few prisoners in Arkansas, so let us ignore his views on the Patriot Act, Iraq, interning AIDS patients, and women's wombs, and delude ourselves into thinking he is one of us. Who knows, maybe if Jefferson Davis reanimated himself, he too could be a closeted hero of the workers.

Check out this new Christian band that just released their first album.

From what I heard on the samples site, they sound really good.

Introducing the new Christian National Anthem: Guns & Jesus.
