We take Michael Nystrom for granted.

We see ads on this site for Donald Trump?

Donald Trump? are you freaking kidding me?

Why would the premier liberty site, be hosting ads for The Dumb Arse Donald?

The answer is SIMPLE.

Because we ourselves, have not given our own money to host this site.


Mr. Nystrom has dedicated long hours and lots of money, to keep this site up and running, not for personal gain, but for Dr. Paul's message.


Few of us are wealthy, but I would venture to guess that all of us could afford five dollars a month to keep this site going.

Enough people at five dollars a month, could let Michael dedicate all his time to promoting liberty.

Enough people at five dollars a month, could keep the site absolutely pure of outside influences.

Are we all talk, and no action?

Will we put our money where our mouth is?

Common Sense people.

Freedom isn't free! period.


Let's have a Moneybomb, for the last site on Planet Earth, that will keep Dr. Paul's message alive.

Five dollars a month, is chump change, but added together, it could let Mr. Nystrom devote more time to spreading the message.

How about a $20.12 week long moneybomb for the DP starting...

...the day Dr. Paul announces his candidacy?

If we talk it up now and spread the word, then everyone who uses this site can budget for it beforehand.

I mean if that happens, Michael is going to be very busy with this site for a long time.

Let me be the first to pledge $20.12 to this site the week Dr. Paul announces. Regardless whether or not this idea takes, my pledge is made.

It's not a lot but quite a few folks use this site so it would add up.

And it could be the first of many similar actions.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."

good idea,

a lot of 20.12's add up. And it won't break the bank.

I am bumping this thread,

because it is important.

It is important for Michael and it is important for liberty.

Please, Please help!

I put up a thread

a couple years ago, suggesting a paid membership.

It was not well-received at the time.
Perhaps now it might be.

bump and

my check just went in the mail. Thank you for this thread it is always wise to count our blessings and give encouragement to those that are doing good. Here is to the Daily Paul family, Michael and all those who donate their time and talents to keep this little community connected.

"We can see with our eyes, hear with our ears and feel with our touch, but we understand with our hearts."

I would gladly put in $5-$20 per month for a subscription to DP.

Would I also be able to post embedded videos on DP?

Thank you Felix for posting this

I always dreamed that some day Daily Paul would become as big as Drudge Report.
To get there up to that level it is obvious DP needs funds.
Besides funds there are other ways.
To help the site grow all one needs to do is constantly spread the word about it to others.
Facebook Twitter posting comments directing to it on Youtube...

I have a habit of sending important articles from DP to Drudge.
One of those days (just a matter of time)Drudge will link to some article from DP and we will get the name Daily Paul to millions of people.
In the meantime sending 5$ or 10$ to help DP helps a lot.

$10,000 for DailyPaul

I've got about $10k worth of equipment and hosting into dailypaul and quite a bit of time.

Michael spends a great number of hours on this site. And, while I've helped with the hosting, the money he gets doesn't even come close to the hours he spends. Yes, it's a love of labor, but at some point, you will grow tired of it with no reward of that labor.

I know plenty of you can donate $5/month. Go without lunch 1 day a week or without that Starbucks. $5 to me would be nothing. I am sure there's plenty of you that could donate more.

Thank you for your support, and the hosting too of course. Your contributions should also be recognized.

He's the man.

Right now I need to get

some cash first....but when I do, I can spare a $5. Michael, this site is my first source for news. Liberty news here is something I can't get any where else, because the site is so efficient at getting the news as fresh as possible. Wish I could do more.

For a great post Sir Felix.

Hey Nui...

Got your message. We've got to get together soon, once you stop jet setting around the country...8)

Eagle Peak, Lead Therapy, and D's "magic bottle"...Coming soon...

I will try and give you a call.

Monthly subscription......

Check! Thanks Michael for the Daily Paul. Can't go a day without it.

I second a paid monthly subscription for those willing to chip in.

How about a sticky at the corner of the page for donations

anyone at anytime could chip in.


Lets do a " DP Fan Club" of sorts.

1. anyone can view the site

2. an annual subsciption will get you extras...

3. or graduate it so if you contribute:

X = you get the silver membership that gives you = A
Y = you get the gold membership that gives you = B
Z = you get the platinum membership that gives you A & B +C

A number of us could volunteer to form a committee of say 6 people that could manage various projects and promotions as well as raise capital. All would get the final approval by Michael.

Imagine a group Skype with the committee members brainstorming ideas and implementing tasks. We could do it for the sake of Liberty and Ron Paul!

We could do so much like beat reporting , articles, history lessons, barter section...Damn! LETS DO THIS!!!!!

It would be a very meaningful and fulfilling venture.

Anyone have any thoughts on that?

The World is my country, all mankind is my brethren, to do good is my religion.

We need to present a proposal to michael on some of thes ideas.

Not a thread, not a post...but a well though out business plan for how the Daily Paul can crank it up to the next level.

Lets face it...It's too much for 1 man to take on. I know he would love to see the growth accelerate but there is time and resource that is required.

This could be an exciting thing....

Thank you.

He's the man.

I like the idea of supporting

I like the idea of supporting the DailyPaul.

What do you think about optional paid subscriptions with the fringe benefit of being able to turn ads off (for those who would want to do so)?

I don't know much about the software that runs the DP (Drupal?), but there's probably a mod available to enable for paid member subscriptions. Then it would be only a matter of changing some coding of the site to enable paid subscribers to turn off ads in their profiles.

$5 a month minimum

or you get ads and no perks(whatever owner M.N. decides). That should be well worth it to all.

Yes - Everyone who uses this site should contribute...

No matter how small an amount - it all adds up.

Even if you just buy something from the Daily Paul store.

Or go through this site if buying on Amazon.

Many of us may not have much to contribute - But all of us can do SOMETHING from time to time.

We're in!

Sharing monthly maintenance cost of a site so well run makes a lot of sense. And better start it now before we plunge into the all-consuming election whirlwind.

p.s. We (i.e. "our household") are starting to purchase liberty books via DP-amazon and AntiWar.com-amazon links :-) Hope that helps, too.

Now worries DailyPaulers

Now worries DailyPaulers Donald will never Trump Liberty :) Go Michael!!

Click it!

I didn't see any ads for Trump but I'll click every one I see from now on to support this site and ding him a nickel.

edit: I just saw it and clicked it. Hey Michael, make sure you get that nickel. check my IP address for your audit.

You're right

I give what I can and then other things happen, become urgent, and then I forget to tithe. But I can sign up for a monthly $10 and wouldn't notice it. Doing it now.

Thank Felix

for the kind words.

He's the man.

If you are not 100% lockstep with Ron Paul,

then what are you doing on this site?

And if you believe Rhino, or Mr Scott Ryan, then you should be going off to South America to drink the coolaid, see comment below.

But if you truly want free speech, and you truly want THE TRUTH, then you should TRULY support Michael Nystrom and the Daily Paul.

The trolls are attacking, fast and furious, because they don't want us to support our own.

You know what else we take for granted??

Good article. I think the

Good article. I think the only thing the author may have left out, though, is profit motive. It's not just simply to make our lives better, which may be what he is implying without even writing it. Without profit motive none of the good deeds described would be done at all, the benefactor would be working elsewhere, improving our lives in a completely unrelated way. And without profit motive we wouldn't just have rancid crumbled chips, we would have no chips at all - unless we made them ourselves.


$20.12 for the DP?

I'm in, what is the date?
