"How Ron Paul rocked our family" by Jo Ann Cavallo

Here is a great article written by a Columbia faculty member about Ron Paul. There is a ton of comments on the page, which seems to support my opinion that Ron Paul's candidacy is great for political discourse, even amongst people who don't like him.

Follow up on the Civil Liberties College Tour

The discussion on The War on Terror, Civil Liberties and The Constitution was great! About 180 audience members attended, and there were no major setbacks, technical or otherwise!
For those that could not attend: you missed lectures from passionate speakers underlining how important civil liberties are and how quickly they have been eroded in recent history.
Thanks to CU Libertarians President Alex Hoyle for setting up the event! Also, thanks to the speakers Bruce Fein, Glenn Greenwald, Jacob Hornberger, and Jack Hunter! Also, thanks to Young Americans for Liberty and the Future of Freedom Foundation!
We are grateful that Columbia University was chosen as the kick-off location, and absolutely hope to be involved in the next college tour!
