Ron Paul May Supporters Benefit From Mitt Romney’s Offer In Iowa Straw Poll Saturday

Ron Paul

(Best Syndication) Presidential Candidate Ron Paul supports are encouraging supporters to take advantage of Mitt Romney’s offer of free transportation to the Iowa Straw Poll, but to vote for Paul. The straw poll Saturday was first held in 1979 and is held in years where the Republican nomination is undecided. It is held for Republican candidates in the city of Ames Iowa.

A flier handed out in Iowa tells voters to take Mitt up on his offer. “Some say if Mitt is willing to bus Iowans to Ames for the straw poll, they should take him up on his offer!” the flier says. After riding the Romney bus to Ames, and allowing the Romney campaign to pay one’s $35 entry fee, Iowans should then carefully weigh their options and “they may decide to vote for Ron Paul.”

In Europe a person would be hard pressed to find a place they COULDN’T connect wirelessly to the Internet, while in the US users must go to a specific coffee shop or airport to do the same thing. It appears that the United States is behind the curve in offering affordable Internet access to its citizens, and short of socialized services what can be done?

Debate Tuesday

(Best Syndication) The candidates really began to spar at the Democratic presidential debate (see Videos Below) sponsored by the AFL-CIO Tuesday night at Soldier Field in Chicago. Barack Obama took heat for proposing an attack against Al Qaeda in Pakistan, but he struck back accusing his rivals of supporting a disastrous war.

Hillary complained that Obama had said too much. “I think it is a very big mistake to telegraph that,” Clinton said. “You can think big, but remember you shouldn’t always say everything you think if you’re running for president, because it has consequences across the world.” But Obama shot back with his own accusations.

Civil libertarians worry that this law could enable the government to wiretap citizens without a warrant. Following Friday’s vote in the Senate, the ACLU said in a statement, “The American Civil Liberties Union today condemned the House and Senate for bowing to pressure from the Bush administration and rushing to amend the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).”

[Best Syndication] On Saturday, the House approved a $16 billion tax provision for oil companies to help push alternative energy. Included is tax breaks an incentives for renewable energy sources and conservation perks.

The tax provision was passed by the House with a vote of 221-189 for the oil company tax. An alternative energy and conservation package was passed earlier with votes 241-172. The goal is to improve energy efficiency as well as to expand biofuel, wind, solar, and other types of renewable environment friendly energy sources.

The House voted to require investor-owned electric companies to provide at least 15 percent of their energy from renewable energy. This is a nationwide effort and will encourage electricity to be generated from wind, solar or biofuels instead of coal.
