As of July, 2011, DP holds at #4 rated libertarian website

Ron Paul dominates top 15 websites.

Rockwell could use a MAJOR graphics upgrade.

The site may have some atavistic appeal to some but my word! In this day and age they need to upgrade: sans-serif typeface, no wall-to-wall text, more color (although not in the font) and images, photos especially.

New Hampshire and Ecuador.

They were talking about that

They were talking about that one time, apparently there's a lot of old libertarian folk who go there and like the simplicity.

TenBobNote, Thanks for heads up about the lack of update.

I updated with the latest ratings.

My list

I regularly check these sites. Actually I probably spend too much time browsing them all every night.

europac.net (peter schiff's company, good news section on the side and media section)
schiffradio.com (save schiff's .mp3 and listen to it at work)
lewrockwell.com (also listening to Lews old podcasts at work since I missed them back then)
thedailybell.com (sometimes)


all ahead of CATO lol


My order

1. Mises.org (Too foundational not to be on top)
2. Dailypaul.com (For interpersonal communication)
3. Lewrockwell.com (For daily reading)

Honorable mentions: RonPaulForums.com (for strategy and planning), Reason.org ( My magazine reading fill), and economicpolicyjournal.com (For being the best Austrian blog)

I don't see myself as a

Libertarian but as an Independent who happens to love the Daily Paul for its diverse information and discussion.

Prepare & Share the Message of Freedom through Positive-Peaceful-Activism.

I see you as a quilt maker.

Best to you.

DailyPaul is still number 1 in my book.

But number 4 is quite amazing considering the short time DP has been around.

"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."
-Ron Paul


Now there's about 16 more blogs I never knew about to check out

LewRockwell.com should be in bold as well

It's the first thing RP reads every day.

Thanks Steve

mark my words -- some day Daily Paul will as big as Drudge Report.
