I don't think any of you remember, but I said I believe months ago that I was going on vacation to the Republican National Convention in Tampa Bay, Florida. We leave tomorrow (the convention starts on August 27, but we are leaving earlier to see some stuff around Florida). When I get back I will make sure to post a full story to the forum if you guys are interested.

I am going to be busy packing today however, so I will have little time on DDO, but I will do my best to see your comments. Anyway, to Tampa!

Go to the RNC wearing a tinfoil hat and shout in praise of Ron Paul as well as condemnations of the New World Order. Do it so that there can be a voice there that represents me.

Plus, you are guaranteed to be all over the news and be famous.

No... You are guaranteed to be a tarnish on the libertarian movement, which you should be oh so accustomed to.

Just heard this as well.

I'm not even that offended by the rhetoric at the Republican National Convention, because the Democratic National Convention won't be much better. As far as I can tell, the current Democratic party is the same authoritarian package, just with friendlier gift wrapping.

Isn't that worse? The Dems pretended to care about civil liberties and ending the wars in order to get elected. Now that they are in office they seemed to forfeit their only redeeming qualities.
I saw somewhere that there are twice as many troops in Afghanistan as there were when Bush left office. Also Obama saying he wouldn't use Federal resources to enforce marijuana prohibition...and then using federal resources to enforce marijuana prohibition.

Yeah, in a way it is even worse. As least with the Republicans you know what you're getting. I honestly have no respect for Obama anymore. None. His foreign policy is unforgivable (AND NOT BECAUSE IT'S TOO SOFT, BECAUSE IT ISN'T). I know that the economy is the main focus now and nobody cares about foreign policy, but that doesn't justify what Obama has done. Namely, not counting men who are of military service age as civilians. So essentially when the military kills innocent people, it's not even collateral damage anymore. They would be counted as enemy combatants... That just isn't something that I can dismiss as an unimportant policy, no matter how bad the economy is.
