bov | Americans are hoping for a revolution, but I'm not sure the kind of revolution a Ron Paul America would bring will be what many think it will. Don't go with a warm feeling after watching a video or getting an email. Don't do that to the rest of the world. Look for yourself, then look again. more... 18 Comments

wildcat | Briana Waters is a devoted, loving mother and partner, a dedicated musician and violin teacher, and a caring friend to many. It has come as quite a shock to everyone who knows her that she has been wrongly accused of participating in a politically motivated arson at the University of Washington. These charges carry a draconian mandatory minimum sentence of 35 years in prison should she be convicted. Briana pled not guilty to the charges, first brought on March 15, 2006, and was released pending trial. more... 0 Comments

The socialist author and special forces veteran Stan Goff here advances his case for leftists to register as republican as soon as possible and vote Ron Paul in their primaries.
Arun Gupta | We’re sending Steve Wishnia to New Hampshire for five days to do some election coverage. He’s blogging for The Indypendent website and is writing the cover story for the next issue, which hits the streets in a week. While this is a departure from our usual reporting style, Steve can spin a good tale with his caustic wit, seasoned reporting skills and skeptical eye. He’ll be looking at larger issues of what’s motivating the electorate and what this election is really about, rather than doing the usual horse race coverage endemic to the corporate media. more... 1 Comments
