Whoville for the Paulites

Discussion in 'Politics' started by ZZZzzzzzzz, May 7, 2008.

  1. The supporters of Ron Paul love them some freedom, but ever since the rest of America made it perfectly clear that they weren't going to install Paul as the American equivalent of Saparmurat Niyazov, they've been a sad bunch of teddy bears, kvetching on their online fora and disrupting the odd caucus or two. But today, Ben Smith brings word of their long-term, post election plans and they basically involve schlepping off to the Texas desert to live together and, maybe later, secede from America or something:

    The goal of Paulville.org it to establish gated communities containing 100% Ron Paul supporters and or people that live by the ideals of freedom and liberty.

    The process is forming a co-op of people buying shares in the community and these people would be granted land use at a minimum of 1 acre per share, for as long as they homesteaded the land. The community would be privately held by the co-op to establish private property for the general community thus preserving the community is 100% freedom and liberty lovers. The community votes on all community efforts, such as utilities etc. However no one is forced to consume these utilities and or pay for them, AKA people can be off grid on their share of land. This is in line with the ideals that you're free to live your life the way you want and not be forced to do or pay for other people's life styles you may not agree with.

    In short, a lonely, analog version of Second Life, only with no running water. The first Paulville is slated to be formed in Hudspeth County, Texas:

    Hudspeth county has no building codes, this is important to people who want to experiment with alternative building technologies such as straw bale, rammed earth, papercrete an other non traditional building styles for these off grid homes.

    Paulville.org warns that life in Paulville will not be "for the faint at heard [sic]" - what with all the rammed earth and "100% liberty" loving happening at all hours. No restrictions on the faint of brain, though!

  2. Hillary Clinton: The Psycho Ex-Girlfriend of the Democratic Party


    Despite all the math counting her out, Hillary Clinton fervently remains in the race to become the Democratic nominee for president in 2008. She has become the Democratic Party's psycho ex-girlfriend, and she's not going away without a restraining order.

    It's 2:31 AM. The Democratic Party is sleeping peacefully when it hears its phone buzz on the night stand. It rolls over and sees "Hillary" on the caller ID. It pauses briefly, considering pushing "END" and not dealing with this shit tonight. The thought is appealing but the Democratic Party knows that if it doesn't take this call, another one is only minutes away.


    DEMS: ...Hello?

    Hillary: Hey baby.

    DEMS: C'mon Hillary. Enough with this.

    Hillary: Don't you get it? You NEED me.

    DEMS: No, I don't. It was fun while it lasted but I'm with Barack now. I made my choice, it's done.

    Hillary: You can't really mean that. How can you say that after all the good times we had?

    DEMS: To be honest, I started hanging out with you because Bill's pretty awesome.

    Hillary: But I'm just like Bill!

    DEMS: No, you're not. Bill is charismatic, inspiring, and gets me really good weed.

    Hillary: Fuck you. You're elitist!

    DEMS: I'm going back to sleep.

    Hillary: No, no, wait. I'm sorry, I didn't mean that. Listen... there's still got to be a chance. Remember when people told George W it was all over. When the numbers were against him?

    DEMS: Yeah but...

    Hillary: Remember?! And remember how everyone said America didn't really want to be with George W? But they stuck it out anyway?

    DEMS: Yeah and they're really fucked up now, Hillary.

    Hillary: But WE'LL make it work. Forget Barack, baby. Just take me back and we can forget this ever happened.

    DEMS: Look, I think you're a really good Senator... let's just keep it that way, OK?

    Hillary: ...I'll see you at the convention.

    DEMS: No! Hillary I told you...


    DEMS: Dammit. Crazy bitch.
