I deserve a big THANK YOU!

I finally got my 87 year old uncle (who lives next to Ron Paul's district) over to our side recently and he even contributed to the MoneyBomb last week!

He told me he loved Dr. Paul's Leno appearance too.

He is (or WAS) as establishment republican as they come, but now he is a professed RON PAUL FAN!!!

It was a lot of work but I did it.

Thank me very much!

Awesome! Great Job!

It's funny you wrote this because I was just thinking today that if my very conservative father was still alive, I would be able to convince him, too. Hopefully he's praying in Heaven for the good Doc.

YAAY, good job :)

very cool to hear

Thank you!

You rock!


That speaks volumes that an old timer has changed his spots for Ron. I know how difficult that must have been. Maybe the country is ready. I won't hold my breath though.

Thank You!

Good Job! Keep it up!

Dr.Ron Paul's 2002 Predictions

Very cool!

Good work man! Now if only EVERYONE could bring one person onto the Ron Paul fleet each month, we would double our support each month!!

we all need to get our parents and grandparents on board

Ron Paul was almost 50% among 18-29, 9% 65+ in one of the recent Iowa polls. It's up to us younger people to get the older people in our lives on board, the biased media can't get in the way of word of mouth!

Great Job!

Thank you very much! Keep up the good work. Greetings from Hong Kong!

Ron Paul Revolution is spreading around the world: Freedom and Prosperity TV: libertarian network of alternative media in Western Balkans

And thank you too

And to the guy in Europe for following Dr Paul as well. It's so encouraging to see people from around the world following Dr Paul. I'd love to hear how you found out about him

Thank you - thank you - thank you

it proves that by not giving up, we get the job done.

Greetings from Europe.

Thanks, now go do that about

Thanks, now go do that about 10 million more times in the next 2 weeks! LOL

Great job!

I've been working on several friends and family members for months now. No successes yet but I believe I have made headway in almost everyone of these cases. Hoping to post a similar post to yours in the coming months. It's always great to hear such stories. The people on DP are the best! You've certainly got my thank you!!!



Whenever I despair, I remember that the way of truth and love has always won. There may be tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they may seem invincible, but in the end, they always fail. Think of it: always.


Could you explain how you did?

Message from PawnStorm to the DailyPaul Community...

I was asked to explain how I accomplished this, but first a HUGE THANK YOU BACK to everyone!

I was sort of kidding about patting myself on the back and it was even kind of an arrogant sounding posting!

But then I see all the appreciation and sincere gratitude from the DailyPaul and I'm really touched.

"Master100" asked me how I converted my uncle so I'll explain...

Much of the info I sent my uncle over the years came from RIGHT HERE - The DailyPaul!

I have learned so much from this site that I was able to pass on much of it not only my uncle, but also to an untold number of people I know - family, friends, associates, collegues.

Also I have read most of Dr. Paul's books and many other great ones relating to the Austiran School, FED shennanigans, and American history - mainly about our founding.

I come from a family of 10 and I have gotten several siblings (and my dad) to join and even donate money to Dr. Paul.

Seeing this progress has encouraged me to continue.

I never use pressure to convince anyone - only facts, history and the founding principles of our country.

The main thing I've learned is that sadly, Americans (on the whole) JUST ARE NOT well educated enough about what is going on to even KNOW WHICH CANDIDATE TO CHOOSE.

Politically, they are like drifting, wayward boats on a sea who are guided only by what they hear or see in the mainstream media (and we all know where THAT gets you).

I believe this is what the Dept of Education wants and has been most successful with it.

When Ron Paul told us at the "Rally For the Republic" in 2008 that we now had an obligation to spread our new-found knowledge, I took it to heart.

I had been apathetic for so long, but Dr. Paul woke me up and I was no longer ignorant - or quiet!

So, the secret to winning people over to our side is to cure them of their ignorance THROUGH EDUCATION and then it will cure them of their apathy.

After that it's easy demonstrate that there's only one clear choice - At least for as long as Ron Paul is involved.

"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

Changing the world....

One Person at a time.

Awesome !

I'm still the lone Ron Paul supporter in my family, both immediate and extended. Perhaps you can talk to them? ;-)

Thank You Bump!

The battle for this country ...

Is at the family/community level.

Huge Win, thanks for your patient efforts to expose the truth.



Nui Loa.

A battle may have been won, but...

you'll have to keep on it. I have seen where they 'slip' back under the Neocon trance, as they are subjected to the continuous brainwashing of the mainstream media 'programming'. I have been trying for years now, and can only get some of my relatives to secretly peek out and see the truth, they can't bring themselves to face it head-on yet, and maybe never will. But, keep trying, we have nothing to lose at this point.

BIG Thank You!

Revolution appreciates it!
