Ron Paul supporter gets help from ACLU

from the Florida ACLU's The Torch news letter
The 2008 presidential election may still seem far off, but fundraisers,
bumper stickers, yard signs and promotional materials of the like are
already popping up across the state.
These symbols of support are intended to increase candidate visibility
and may at times seem voluminous, but they are constitutionally
protected speech that should be free from government interference. At
least that is what 24- year- old Clermont residents Bryan and Leilani
Orr thought. Then, the city threatened to fine them $ 250 for refusing
to remove a political sign from their front yard.
The Orrs placed the sign in their yard to promote their presidential
favorite, Republican Congressman Ron Paul, never thinking it would
cause controversy. When a Clermont Code Enforcement Officer said they
were in violation of the city ordinance requiring candidates and their
campaigns to pay $ 50 before posting a sign, the Orrs pushed back: " I
simply wasn't going to stand idly by while the City stepped on my
rights as a citizen," Bryan said. Orr researched the ordinance and
found that the regulation did not apply to commercial, real estate, or
any signs other than those of political nature. Certain that political
speech is protected by the First Amendment, Bryan called the ACLU's
Central Florida Regional Office and was delighted to hear what they had to say.
" Political speech is the most protected of any speech," Regional
Director Glenn Katon told him. The ACLU sent a demand letter to the
City of Clermont on behalf of the Orrs citing similar ordinances around
the country that were struck down when challenged in court.
Katon left Clermont officials with two choices— end the enforcement of
their unconstitutional city ordinance or prepare to face the ACLU in
federal court.
The City of Clermont's response arrived less than 24 hours later,
stating that the city would not take any action against the Orrs. The
City also said they would continue to review the 1980 ordinance
regarding political signs and make any necessary revisions, inviting
suggestions from the ACLU for revising the ordinance and the permitting
" No one should let government censor them— and when injustice arises,
we all have a duty to stand up and say not here, not to me," Orr said
after receiving the City's response. " I'm glad it's come to a
resolution that our founding fathers would be pleased with."
Once again the Orrs are displaying the sign in their front yard, and
free speech lives to see another day in Clermont.  Bryan Orr stands by
his political sign in his front yard.

[CL_USF] How to Spot a Political Spy/Infiltrator (fwd)

---------- Forwarded message ----------
Date: Sun, 23 Sep 2007 02:55:07 -0000
From: political.spycatcher <>
Subject: [CL_USF] How to Spot a Political Spy/Infiltrator

FBI and Police Informers and Spy/Infiltrators will infest any
political group or party to prevent any real movement for justice or
eco-peace from developing in this country.

One way to neutralize a potential activist is to get them to be in a
group that does all the wrong things. Why?
1) The message doesn't get out.
2) A lot of time is wasted
3) The activist is frustrated and discouraged
4) Nothing good is accomplished.

Agents come in small, medium or large. They can be of any ethnic
background. They can be male or female.
The actual size of the group or movement being infiltrated is
irrelevant. It is the potential the movement has for becoming large
which brings on the spies and saboteurs.

This page lists tactics agents use to slow things down, foul things
up, destroy the movement and keep tabs on activists.

It is the agent's job to keep the activist from quitting such a
group, thus keeping him/her under control.
In some situations, to get control, the agent will tell the activist:
"You're dividing the movement."
[Here, I have added the psychological reasons as to WHY this
maneuver works to control people]

This invites guilty feelings. Many people can be controlled by
guilt. The agents begin relationships with activists behind a well-
developed mask of "dedication to the cause." Because of their often
declared dedication, (and actions designed to prove this), when they
criticize the activist, he or she - being truly dedicated to the
movement - becomes convinced that somehow, any issues are THEIR
fault. This is because a truly dedicated person tends to believe
that everyone has a conscience and that nobody would dissimulate and
lie like that "on purpose." It's amazing how far agents can go in
manipulating an activist because the activist will constantly make
excuses for the agent who regularly declares their dedication to the
cause. Even if they do, occasionally, suspect the agent, they will
pull the wool over their own eyes by rationalizing: "they did that
unconsciously... they didn't really mean it... I can help them by
being forgiving and accepting " and so on and so forth.

The agent will tell the activist:
"You're a leader!"
This is designed to enhance the activist's self-esteem. His or her
narcissistic admiration of his/her own activist/altruistic
intentions increase as he or she identifies with and consciously
admires the altruistic declarations of the agent which are
deliberately set up to mirror those of the activist.

This is "malignant pseudoidentification." It is the process by which
the agent consciously imitates or simulates a certain behavior to
foster the activist's identification with him/her, thus increasing
the activist's vulnerability to exploitation. The agent will
simulate the more subtle self-concepts of the activist.

Activists and those who have altruistic self-concepts are most
vulnerable to malignant pseudoidentification especially during work
with the agent when the interaction includes matter relating to
their competency, autonomy, or knowledge.

The goal of the agent is to increase the activist's general empathy
for the agent through pseudo-identification with the activist's self-
The most common example of this is the agent who will compliment the
activist for his competency or knowledge or value to the movement.
On a more subtle level, the agent will simulate affects and
mannerisms of the activist which promotes identification via
mirroring and feelings of "twinship". It is not unheard of for
activists, enamored by the perceived helpfulness and competence of a
good agent, to find themselves considering ethical violations and
perhaps, even illegal behavior, in the service of their
The activist's "felt quality of perfection" [self-concept] is
enhanced, and a strong empathic bond is developed with the agent
through his/her imitation and simulation of the victim's own
narcissistic investments. [self-concepts] That is, if the activist
knows, deep inside, their own dedication to the cause, they will
project that onto the agent who is "mirroring" them.

The activist will be deluded into thinking that the agent shares
this feeling of identification and bonding. In an activist/social
movement setting, the adversarial roles that activists naturally
play vis a vis the establishment/government, fosters ongoing
processes of intrapsychic splitting so that "twinship alliances"
between activist and agent may render whole sectors or reality
testing unavailable to the activist. They literally "lose touch with

Activists who deny their own narcissistic investments [do not have a
good idea of their own self-concepts and that they ARE concepts] and
consciously perceive themselves (accurately, as it were) to
be "helpers" endowed with a special amount of altruism are
exceedingly vulnerable to the affective (emotional) simulation of
the accomplished agent.

Empathy is fostered in the activist through the expression of quite
visible affects. The presentation of tearfulness, sadness, longing,
fear, remorse, and guilt, may induce in the helper-oriented activist
a strong sense of compassion, while unconsciously enhancing the
activist's narcissistic investment in self as the embodiment of

The agent's expresssion of such simulated affects may be quite
compelling to the observer and difficult to distinguish from deep
It can usually be identified by two events, however:

First, the activist who has analyzed his/her own narcissistic roots
and is aware of his/her own potential for being "emotionally
hooked," will be able to remain cool and unaffected by such
emotional outpourings by the agent.

As a result of this unaffected, cool, attitude, the Second event
will occur: The agent will recompensate much too quickly following
such an affective expression leaving the activist with the
impression that "the play has ended, the curtain has fallen," and
the imposture, for the moment, has finished. The agent will then
move quickly to another activist/victim.

The fact is, the movement doesn't need leaders, it needs
MOVERS. "Follow the leader" is a waste of time.

A good agent will want to meet as often as possible. He or she will
talk a lot and say little. One can expect an onslaught of long,
unresolved discussions.

Some agents take on a pushy, arrogant, or defensive manner:
1) To disrupt the agenda
2) To side-track the discussion
3) To interrupt repeatedly
4) To feign ignorance
5) To make an unfounded accusation against a person.
Calling someone a racist, for example. This tactic is used to
discredit a person in the eyes of all other group members.

Some saboteurs pretend to be activists. She or he will ....
1) Write encyclopedic flyers (in the present day, websites)
2) Print flyers in English only.
3) Have demonstrations in places where no one cares.
4) Solicit funding from rich people instead of grass roots support
5) Display banners with too many words that are confusing.
6) Confuse issues.
7) Make the wrong demands.
Compromise the goal.
9) Have endless discussions that waste everyone's time. The agent
may accompany the endless discussions with drinking, pot smoking or
other amusement to slow down the activist's work.

1) Want to establish "leaders" to set them up for a fall in order to
stop the movement.
2) Suggest doing foolish, illegal things to get the activists in
3) Encourage militancy.
4) Want to taunt the authorities.
5) Attempt to make the activist compromise their values.
6) Attempt to instigate violence. Activism ought to always be non-
7) Attempt to provoke revolt among people who are ill-prepared to
deal with the reaction of the authorities to such violence.

1) Want everyone to sign up and sign in and sign everything.
2) Ask a lot of questions (gathering data).
3) Want to know what events the activist is planning to attend.
4) Attempt to make the activist defend him or herself to identify
his or her beliefs, goals, and level of committment.

Legitimate activists do not subject people to hours of persuasive
dialog. Their actions, beliefs, and goals speak for themselves.

Groups that DO recruit are missionaries, military, and fake
political parties or movements set up by agents.

ALWAYS assume that you are under surveillance.
At this point, if you are NOT under surveillance, you are not a very
good activist!

Scare Tactics
They use them.
Such tactics include slander, defamation, threats, getting close to
disaffected or minimally committed fellow activists to persuade them
(via psychological tactics described above) to turn against the
movement and give false testimony against their former compatriots.

They will plant illegal substances on the activist and set up an

they will plant false information and set up "exposure," they will
send incriminating letters [emails] in the name of the activist; and
more; they will do whatever society will allow.

This booklet in no way covers all the ways agents use to sabotage
the lives of sincere an dedicated activists.

If an agent is "exposed," he or she will be transferred or replaced.

It is no longer placed on paper where it can be discovered through

making decisions

In the last installment of the Ron Paul programming tutorial, you
learned how to get input from the user. As an example, we wrote a
program to ask the user who their favorite presidential candidate was.
However, the program didn't do much except print to the screen who
their pick was. Obviously, you would want to do something more than
that. One way to do this is by using if/else statements. If a user
picks Ron Paul, you could have the computer do one thing and if the
user picked Fred Thompson or Hillary Clinton, you could have the
computer warn the user that those candidates are members of the Counsel
on Foreign Relations. I think the best way to demonstrate this is with
an example.
'begining of code'
dim presidential_candidate as string
print "Who is your favorite presidential candidate?"
input presidential_candidate
if presidential_candidate="Ron Paul" then
print "Oh good, you believe in freedom."
elseif presidential_candidate="Hillary Clinton" or
presidential_candidate="Fred Thompson" then
print "The candidate you have picked is a member of an organization
called the Counsel on Foreign Relations."
print "This organization is dangerous to American sovereignty because
they believe in one-world government."
print "You should google Ron Paul sometime."
print "I don't know who that is."
print "My programmer was too lazy to program all of the presidential
candidates into me."
end if
'end of code'

variables, input, and output

In order to get input from the user, you have to use variables.
Basically, a variable stores information in RAM. A few types of
variables that can be used in FreeBASIC are strings, integers, and
doubles. If you want to store things such as people's names, you would
use a string. If you want to store numbers or do math, you would use
an integer or a double. An integer is used for whole numbers such as
1, 2 or 3. A double can be used if you want to store decimal numbers.
In order to use a variable in FreeBASIC, it has to be declared using
the dim statement. For example, if you want to use a string, you would
use the following code:
dim presidential_candidate as string

To get input from the user, you can use the input command. The
following code gives an example of this:
dim presidential_candidate as string
print "Who is your favorite US presidential candidate?"
input presidential_candidate
print "You picked ",presidential_candidate,"."
'end of code'
If you save, compile and run that program, you'll see that it asks the
user to pick a presidential candidate. Then it prints who the user
picked. In the next installment of the Ron Paul programming tutorial,
I will discuss how to get the computer to make decisions about the
user's input.

getting started with FreeBASIC

FreeBASIC can be downloaded for free at

After you download it, run the installer program if you're using
Windows. For the rest of this tutorial, I'm going to assume that you
chose "c:\freebasic" as the installation directory. If you're using
Linux, uncompress the tar.gz archive by typing the following from the
bash shell:
gunzip FreeBASIC.whatever_version.tar.gz
tar -x -f FreeBASIC.whatever.tar
Then change to the FreeBASIC directory and run ./
Now, you're ready to get started with FreeBASIC. I will assume that
you're using the Windows operating system for the rest of this
tutorial. Type the following into a text editor such as notepad:
print "Hello America."
print "The only person to vote for for president in 2008 is Ron Paul!"
'end of code'
Save that code to a file called "c:\freebasic\helloamerica.bas."
To turn this code into an executable program do the following:
Go to the start menu.
Choose run.
Type "cmd."
Press return.
Type "cd\freebasic" and press return.
Type "fbc helloamerica.bas" and press return.
You shouldn't have gotten any errors.
Type "helloamerica" and press return. If everything went well, you
should see the following on the monitor:
Hello America.
The only person to vote for for president in 2008 is Ron Paul!
Congradulations. You've just made your first program. It wasn't much,
but you have to start somewhere. In the next installment of the Ron
Paul programming tutorial, I will discuss how to get input from the user.

the Ron Paul programming tutorial

If you've read this blog before, you know that I have strong opinions
about certain political issues and that I support Ron Paul. However,
besides politics, I also enjoy technology. For this reason, I decided
to create a little computer programming tutorial for beginners. Once
we get into the tutorial, you'll see why I'm calling it the Ron Paul
programming tutorial.
What is computer programming? The web browser that you are using to
read this tutorial was written by a computer programmer or group of
programmers. These programmers wrote code in a programming language
then used a computer program called a compiler to convert the human
readable code into a machine code that your computer can understand.
There are many different programming languages, but I think a good
programming language for beginners is a language called FreeBASIC, so
that's the language I will use in this tutorial. In my next post, I
will discuss how to get started with FreeBASIC.

September 7, 2007 Message From Ron Paul

by Ron Paul
September 7, 2007
Has this been a hectic and encouraging time! First we got almost 17% in
the Texas straw poll, an event set-up to represent the establishment,
with very restrictive voting rules. That 17% of the Republican
hierarchy would support our views, after a full day of pro-war
propaganda, is good news. Then we won the more open Maryland Republican
straw poll with 28%. In both cases, as usual, hard-working,
well-organized volunteers made all the difference. The Fox debate was
a lot of fun as well. It's true that a few of the network people are
not exactly with us on foreign or domestic policy (though one famous
guy whispered to me that he is a libertarian), but the audience-with
lots of students from the University of New Hampshire-was definitely
fair and balanced, as their enthusiastic reaction showed.
My opponents called for more war, more torture, more secret prisons,
more eavesdropping, more presidential power. Some seemed to identify
the government and the people as if they were one entity. But you and I
know that once the government moves beyond its very limited
constitutional mandate, it is an opponent of the people, a rip-off
operation that takes our money and our freedom and our social peace,
and gives us a mess of statist pottage in return.
The government failed miserably on 911 to protect us, despite spending
trillions. So the answer was supposed to be the giant, socialist
Department of Homeland Security, protecting you and me from taking our
toothpaste on the airplane. I was ridiculed for saying that the
airlines, which know best how to protect their property, should have
been allowed to arm their pilots. But then, you and I really believe in
the Second Amendment. It is not just a political slogan for us.
When I discussed the blowback that came from us intervening on the
Arabian peninsula, Chris Wallace asked me if I wanted to follow the
marching orders of al-Qaeda. I responded that I wanted to follow the
marching orders of the Constitution, and not wage undeclared,
aggressive wars that cause us only trouble. This is a mystifying to
some, of course, but not to more and more Americans.
There was much talk of taxes, and a pledge not to raise rates. But as
usual, I was not allowed to discuss my lifelong pledge to abolish the
income tax. Just holding the line, when the government takes such vast
sums through an illegitimate guilty-until-proven-innocent system, is
hardly enough. We need to slash taxes and spending if we are to have a
future of prosperity for ourselves and our families.
After the debate, many young people gathered around the stage to
discuss our ideas and ask questions about them (and to have me sign
their badges). My colleagues got no such response, and after a few
moments, "security" ordered me off the stage. Can't have any such
demonstration of interest in liberty.
But the young are with us, and so are Americans of every stripe. Even
party officials. When one of my opponent said it was OK to lose
elections through supporting the Iraq war, that set party people's
teeth on edge, and rightly so. The Republican party is shrinking. We
need new people. It's either our ideas or President Hillary, and more
and more people recognize it.
But the media, and everyone else, will be looking at fundraising totals
at the end of this month. They'll judge us by how we do. And we need
help to wage what we hope will be a full-scale, 50-state campaign.
Please help me head into the next quarter fully armed to do battle for
freedom, peace and prosperity. Make your most generous contribution This Revolution is on the move,
but it very much needs your support.
'end of his message'
On a personal note, some people may not think the IRS is a big deal.
However, getting rid of the IRS would mean a great deal to me. You may
think that as long as you go along with their system and fill out all
of the paperwork, everything will be fine. People in my family are
very law-abiding, but this didn't keep the IRS from going after my
parents. My family has to pay somebody to take care of my head injured
uncle. One employee that we hired didn't pay some taxes, so the IRS
came after my parents. The employee owed the money, but my parents are
just middle class people, so they couldn't afford lawyers to fight the
IRS, so this incident ended up costing my parents over $4000. The IRS
needs to be gotten rid of. This is one reason you should support Ron
Paul for president and not the establishment candidates such as Hillary
Clinton or Fred Thompson. Jee, I wonder why Ron Paul didn't get any
questions about taxes in the Fox debate the other night? Maybe because
America's tax money goes towards corporate welfare. Therefore,
corporations such as Fox are afraid of Ron Paul's candidacy.

Why do you support Fred Thompson?

If you believe the main stream media, you think that Fred Thompson's
campaign for president in 2008 has a lot of support. To test this, I'm
asking the Fred Thompson supporters to post comments on why they
support Fred Thompson. If your reason is that you think he is honest,
you should take a look at Ron Paul. There are plenty of videos on
Youtube of his speeches plus plenty of information on If you still support Fred Thompson after doing
that research, post a comment on this blog. I almost forgot, you might
want to do research on Fred Thompson's support from special interests.

After tonight's republican debate, Ron Paul had the most votes in the

Paul supporters are voting a bunch of times. That's not possible
because if you try to vote more than once, you get a message that says

Should John Edwards be charged with treason?

Should democratic candidate John Edwards be charged with treason? It
appears that John Edwards is attempting to turn America into a
socialist country. He has proposed a socialist health care plan that
would force every American to see a doctor when the government wants
them to. Can somebody tell me where in the US constitution does the
federal government get the authority to require all Americans to see a
doctor and for tax payers to pay for it? Since John Edwards is running
as a presidential candidate and proposing a policy that clearly
violates the United States constitution, he should be at least
disqualified as a presidential candidate. Either he doesn't know the
US constitution or he has no respect for people's right to control
their own lives. You people that support John Edwards should be
ashamed of yourselves.
