Céad Míle Fáilte ~ A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

Here we seek a rest in the shade, some cool water and a little kindness. This blog is dedicated to peace, truth, justice and a post- industrial, post-petroleum illumined world in spite of all odds against it. I very much like the line about the ancient knight (see poem below) "His helmet now shall make a hive for bees" It is reminiscent of "beating swords into ploughshares" a sentiment I heartily approve of. Thank you for visiting ~ I hope you return!

Liberty, Peace and Freedom

What has that Ron Paul been up to? Promoting his Campaign for Liberty. Gearing up for the alternative convention, Rally For the Republic, since he was shut out of the Republican one. The mission of the Campaign for Liberty ~ formerly the Ron Paul Presidential Campaign ~ is to promote and defend the time-honored American principles of individual liberty, civil rights, constitutional government, sound money, free markets, and a non interventionist foreign policy (meaning peace in Iraq), by means of diplomatic, educational and political activity. I was floored by his courage last spring, and worked on Dr. Paul's Presidential campaign, personally starting the local Ron Paul meetup (which after half a year or so I handed off to Dr. Laura Ebke, current Chair of the Republican Liberty Caucus in Nebraska, a group of "Ron Paul" Repubs) canvassing, sign waving, even going so far as going to the county Republican convention (!!) and braving the hordes of alcohol-saturated suited helmet-haired neocons to vote for the RP delegates.

Laura will be doing some blogging from the Campaign For Liberty and the Republican National Convention and I'll link to her posts in the coming week.

Reaching all the way back to one of the heroes of my youth, Senator Wayne Morse of Oregon, who set a pattern and protoype for Paul, Kucinich and other peace loving iconoclasts of today.

Thanks for the promo, Deb. We'll have a couple of us blogging from Minneapolis, I think--myself, a gentleman by the name of Mike (who happens to be my baby brother), and a fellow named Jon who is one of our delegates to the National Convention. Hopefully between the 3 of us we'll have something worthwhile to say. First big event--Real Politics Training--happens beginning on Sunday afternoon.

No problem at all, it is wonderful to have a Rosemary Tree "correspondant" up there!
I shall pay you in Sam Adams when you return. Have fun & stay out of trouble...
