How Does Ron Paul Resolve Love of Personal Liberty & Banning Abortion?

Ron Paul is one of the rare elected officials who has the integrity to highlight the crippling economic costs of our massive military industrial complex, as well as the need to decriminalize drugs and audit both the Pentagon and the Federal Reserve. His adamant support for personal privacy, Bradley Manning and civil liberties also shows leadership, but unfortunately like most men in his party, Paul still rabidly opposes a woman’s ability to safely terminate a pregnancy. He wants small unobtrusive government, except when it applies to all female bodies?

Stockbox Grocery Opens First Storefront in Seattle’s South Park Neighborhood

Last year at the Slow Money Gathering in San Francisco, I was really impressed with a presentation that I heard from one of the founders of Stockbox Neighborhood Grocery in Washington. Her idea was simple and innovative — retrofit shipping containers to sell healthy food and produce in underserved neighborhoods. The easily portable container could be placed in industrial areas and regions where food deserts now prevail, instantly providing better access to fresh groceries.

Romney & Ryan: Going Back to the Future that Destroyed Our Nation’s Economy?

Just as newly christened potential vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan told his supporters that he was “thrilled to be a part of America’s comeback team”, the Obama campaign released another endearing nickname for the political duo: “The Go Back Team”. It is inexplicable why these Republicans keep desperately clinging to the belief that the miserably failed trickle down economics fraud that already drove our country off a cliff is still somehow a viable solution.

United States is Now the Most Unequal of All Industrialized Nations

Jon Stewart spoke with Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz about how the extreme concentration of wealth in the hands of a few plutocrats is destroying the very principles upon which our country was founded:
“It seems like people are not angry at wealth or success, they get frustrated by what appears to be an entirely different set of rules put in place by the wealthy, who then say: ‘Hey man, I’m just playing by the rules’, as though those rules were an arbitrary design of the free market.”

Global Elites Hide Trillions in Secret Offshore Economy Each Year

A new report has been published which compiles detailed information about the enormous amount of money that is being hidden by billionaires in offshore accounts. The research, The Price of Offshore Revisited, shows that over 21 trillion dollars, more than the total combined GDPs of both the United States and Japan, are being sequestered out of sight into the legally murky offshore economy. The super elite are using every available resource to exploit loopholes in cross-border tax rules to avoid paying their fair share.

LIBOR Scandal Exposes Systematic Corruption throughout Banking Industry

The most egregious criminal financial fraud of all time is now unfolding before our eyes. A handful of corrupt banks have been intentionally manipulating global interest rates, also known as LIBOR, which stands for London Interbank Offered Rate. When it is not being illegally twisted by bankers for their own monetary gain, LIBOR is meant to gauge the average interest rate that banks charge each other to borrow money. The measure is also used as the basis for nearly all other lending rates, from what we pay for student loans to home mortgages.
