Mandeville, LA - Mike Church's daily Pile of Prep, chock full of Ron Paul vs Rand Paul updates and other [r]epublican stories used to perform the Mike Church Show on Sirius/XM Patriot channel 125. "By the end of the Civil War the government supported an army of a million men, carried a national debt of $2.5 billion, distributed public lands, printed a national currency, and collected an array of internal taxes.

For the record, the quote used by Ron Paul comes from the Book of Matthew, Chapter 26 verse 52 '"Put your sword back in its place," Jesus said to him, "for all who draw the sword will die by the sword." This does not excuse RP's lack of tact in his Chris Kyle RIP
