Across The Atlantic ...

A manifesto from Ireland.

What is sovereignty? What is freedom?

To be truly free, we must each cultivate complete autonomy over our individual Self, so that regardless of the external circumstances we do not react in the old habitual manner which is predictable and easily controlled. Sovereignty means understanding ourselves physically, mentally, emotionally, psychologically and spiritually.

When we know ourselves and realise that freedom lies within, then no tyrant nor conman can take that freedom away. It is untouchable, inalienable and absolute. And it is inside each and every one of us. This is the great truth that the masters of war work so hard to keep us from revealing. We are kept on an endless threadmill of manufactured shocks, threats and disasters, perpetually focused on the external so that we never reveal the truth within.

What we seek – freedom, sovereignty, power, truth, even God, whatever label we choose to use – lies inside each of us. Not in some book or information or group or movement. These things can all help, but it is up to each of us to locate it, reveal it, nurture it and ultimately be it.

Big Government Is King

Ron Paul speaks truth when he comments on Paul Ryans's big government budget and a government that is becoming like a monarchy.

Potential 2012 GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul (Texas) on Monday panned Rep. Paul Ryan’s (R-Wis.) budget proposal, telling a crowd in Iowa that the Ryan plan will not end big government, which he said is becoming like a monarchy.

Speaking at a forum organized by the Family Leader, a local Christian and socially conservative group, the Texas congressman referred to a passage in the Old Testament where the Israelite people asked the prophet Samuel for a king to rule over them. He used the story a parable to illustrate where he believes the once self-reliant American culture is headed.


"It goes on and on," the congressman said. "The king will take care of us.”


He said the budgets proposed by Rep. Ryan and President Obama wouldn't put Washington on a path to limited government.

“Neither of those budgets will solve our problems, or even come close," Paul said.

Ron Paul Returns Funds To Treasury

Ron Paul again returns unspent funds to the government. Ron Paul saved 10% of his budget to help pay down the national debt. Will other Congressmen follow Ron Paul's lead?

Taking another step forward in 2011, the Texas congressman and darling of the more libertarian, Tea Party wing of the Republican Party is continuing to walk the walk, returning a whopping $140,000 in unused office funds to the U.S. Treasury for the purpose of paying down the national debt. The sum is nearly 10% of his office funds and a 40% increase over the $100,000 he returned last year.
