New to the movement!

Hi, my name is Corey Stoffer and I'm fairly new to both the liberty movement and the political process. I plan on doing some hard reading over the summer on the issues we face and Ron Paul's view on certain issues and why he feels that way. I'm only 20, so when he ran for 2008 election I was only 16 and couldn't vote. Ironically, right around mid-point of the nearly two year (maybe closer to one half) process it takes to elect a US president, I was sitting in my government class in high school. We talked about the Constitution and I went home and did some research. Being a naive 16 year old, I thought "well all of these candidates must respect the Constitution". I must say, I was shook when I saw that only Ron Paul truly backed this document that was supposed to be the utmost law of the land. From that day on I strongly supported him. I made phone calls, sent out emails, etc. I strongly believed in all of his views. Mostly because they were what the Constitution said we should do.

Anyways, before I bore you all to death, I am very pleased to see him running again. I honestly believe he has a good shot at winning the GOP election. I'm very proud to help out in his campaign in anyway I can, even if it means making small phone calls to local neighbors.

I will try to post on here at least a few times a week, if not only to say hi. I'm glad to be part of a growing movement that wants this country to go back to it's roots...to follow the law our founders had created for us!

Sorry for all the spelling mistakes. I'm tired and hungry. Dropping eyes and a growling stomach makes it hard to write!

Just stay open-minded and enjoy the ride!

To peace and rebellion!


Now your eyes are open you have a DUTY to do what you can to spread the message. Focus on your learning and don't just know the constitution, but understand the reasoning for each section of the constitution.

It is only the beginning. Spread the wildfire of liberty!

Howdy sir.

I'd rather have a bottle in front o' me than a frontal lobotomy

Welcome, sir! We are going to

Welcome, sir! We are going to win in 2012 so I hope your ready lol...


and welcome to the Revolution! Thank you so much for having a real brain. It's wonderful to see our youth surviving the intense brainwashing of the schools, with their desire for liberty intact.

Welcome my friend..

A very nice read and absolutely no "bore" at all. I wish we could read a couple of hundred of these every day.

Welcome Corey!

Welcome Corey!


Glad to meet another person whos woken up. After you get over the shock of whats really been going on, you might spend hours trying to debunk it thinking,,'why is the government doing this to me?'.
This may cause you to go deeper, and learn the truth is not as bad as you first thought. Its much worse.
Next might come babbling. Your family, friends, neighbors,co-workers, even strangers on the street, might think you've lost your mind.
Make time to accumulate more data, and process it. Learn to express yourself in as calm of a manor as you can.
Everyone has different ideas about what is needed for this country. You should be able to speak to them about Ron Paul, and his plan for that issuse, even if the plan is to do nothing, and why its best for our country, and our freedom.
In short, be polite, friendly,(a regular boy scout), but with a die hard, kick ass, complete defiance for unConstitutional laws, kind of guy.
And welcome to what some of my (non Ron Paul supporting) friends call the nut house.
my friends say we got to be nuts if we think our government will put up with an outbreak of peace and love

I believe in Hope & Change..I Hope the government will Change

Please be careful with your full name on the net.

First of all...dont announce your full name on random websites. Make that something personal between yourself and others on a 1 to 1 basis.

If you want Ron Paul nominated for GOP:
1.become a GOP precinct captain
2.get elected as a delegate in your district
3.go to your state GOP convention
4. get elected as a super-delegate at the GOP convention
5.go to the national GOP convention aka "RNC"
6.vote ROn Paul
7.pray that enough superdelegates vote Ron Paul

8.Ron Paul gets nominated.

Nice post and glad you are

Nice post and glad you are involved. :)

Welcome Sir!

Read Hayek's "The Road to Serfdom"... you will be wizened beyond your current comprehensions... :-D

NO MORE LIES. Ron Paul 2012.

Greetings friend!

As someone twice your age here's my advice for your studies... learn as many opposing political views as possible, always!

This will hone your critical thinking skills while reinforcing any preconceived beliefs or open your mind to new ideas.

If men are good, you don't need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don't dare have one.

Corey, Welcome to the

Corey, Welcome to the DailyPaul and to our r3volution! Ron Paul 2012!!!

We're glad that you have started posting after being here for.

almost 3 yeas.

Liberty is infectious, so now you have the freedom bug. Good.

I didn't see any misspelled words in your story, either. Good job.

I offer you a plan that will

This is THE PLAN, the blueprint to victory.

Depends on who you ask?

There will come a time in the next few weeks when some will not remember this user is new and is only asking for knowledge.At this point this user will become a smart ass being sarcastic and will be considered a competitive intelligent mind to contend with.Just watch!,We will have to remind them that this user is new,quite young and innocent.How much do want to bet?

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

Thank you for the post

And welcome to the revolution. Its great to see young people coming out of these public schools and overcoming all the propaganda that is poured into them still holding fast to their constitution. I am so sick of hearing the words"living document". In My heart its set in stone. It is the basis of all the laws of this great country. No mater what law they pass Nothing should change the core document and any new law should have to support the core document and hold it up high or it shouldnt be passed or signed into law. Great having you on the DP.

Reading List

Ron's newest book: Liberty Defined is sensational. Some of the issues are complicated, but he states his positions succinctly and gives his thinking on why Individual Liberty trumps government tyranny every time. Best wishes.

Best advice Dr. Paul gives routinely:


Following the lead of the guy who posts here as m72mc is not such a bad idea either.

Your post is inspiring. Those local calls you mention are far more important than you suggest. Please keep coming back and let us know how your story evolves.

Welcome, Good Sir!

We appreciate your time & efforts. As for spelling errors, the Ninny Staters 'round here bark, but they don't bite. Cheers!

A spelling error in a report is like a gravy stain on your tie. It doesn't undermine the substance of the issue, but it does draw attention to itself and away from your message.

Otherwise, play hard!

If you want to get right at the heart of the matter, attend your local Republican party meetings. You need just a small bit of important knowledge--how to become a precinct delegate. It's very easy, but you just have to learn some magic words, and how meetings are run (Robert's Rules of Order, and your local Republican party's meeting rules). Anyone can be a delegate. You don't have to memorize the rules, just know how and when to interrupt a meeting in a normal way ("Point of Order!"), to force votes on issues ("I call the question!") and to be ready to have those votes lined up (hopefully). Don't advertise that you're a Paul supporter, just a young man ("oh, what a nice young man!" (lol)), interested in your country (low taxes, and strong military is a good answer to any question).

If you learn this essential knowledge, at your age, you could easily rise to power in any organization you wish to influence. It's how America is supposed to be run, Robert's Rules of Order, and votes in meetings, from your town council to the US Senate.

Have fun! Become a precinct, then state, then national delegate, and then vote for the good doctor at the Republican national convention. It will be thrilling(!) if you make it, and you will meet hundreds of interesting people and situations, some friendly, some corrupt, and all shades of grey. This is how the R3VOLution is won.
