Hello Friends,

I set this board up as a place for Ron Paul supporters to communicate with each other. Anyone can read and post to the board. To post, you must first register.

Feel free to post your comments, links and anything else you'd like the world to know about here. I ask that you follow these loose guidelines:

1) Even though this is an unofficial site, you are still representing Dr. Paul in the eyes of the public. Please don't write anything that Dr. Paul himself wouldn't say or wouldn't approve of, or that would reflect badly on Dr. Paul or the campaign. Therefore, don't trash other candidates, don't use bad words, etc. Keep your focus on the good and the positive and on hope.

2) ALWAYS spell check and grammar check your work before posting. The new Firefox has a built in spell checker. Misspelled words get a red underline, and if you right click on them, you get some options from a built-in dictionary.

3) Please do not post the text of entire articles on other sites. Feel free to post a short intro, and then a link to the original article. Unfortunately, YouTube videos cannot be embedded in the forum, but feel free to link to them. Just copy and paste the address, and it will turn into a link automatically.

4) I can and will delete inappropriate comments and ban disruptive users. This includes blatant commercials, excessive profanity, personal attacks on other users, multiple identical postings on different threads, and EXCESSIVE USE OF CAPITAL LETTERS.

Please be nice and follow Dr. Paul's living example of kindness, respect and humility. Let me know if you have any questions.

I set this up to be an open forum for the honest discussion of ideas and the search for truth. In order for this to work, everyone must play by the rules and respect the community. While I don't want to get into the habit of banning people or deleting posts and / or comments, if you don't respect the community, then you are not welcome here. There is also a link at the end of each post titled "flag as offensive." If a threshold number of users click this link, a post / comment will be automatically unpublished. I encourage community members to use wisdom and discretion in using this feature.

Any of the following will be sure to get you banned without warning:

Engaging in flame wars or personal attacks on other members, racist remarks, posting material completely unrelated to the campaign or the presidential race, bumping your own thread to keep it on the front page, posting the same non-related comment on multiple threads to promote your website or event, blatant advertising and EXCESSIVE USE OF CAPITALS. If you cannot consistently spell or check your grammar, you may also be banned. Sorry. Posting here is a privilege, not a right.

In the end, this is a private site, not a public forum. Anything I decide that reflects poorly on Dr. Paul and/or sullies the good and peaceful name of Ron Paul supporters is not welcome here. At the end of the day, this is my house. I set it up to honor, respect and promote Ron Paul's bid for the Presidency. Play fair and you're welcome to stay. Do not abuse what is offered.

Welcome aboard a magical journey!

Best regards,

Appropriate Subject line

I think there the guidelines should include appropriate Subject lines for posts.

For example, ***No Using Asterisks*** for titles.

Also, the subject should have relevancy to the post, rather than something ambiguous like "You've got to read this!" or "I Don't Like Sharing This But Here It Is".

...

"Talk all you can about all you know all of the time."

Maybe you should get your own website...

...and then you can have it just the way you want it.

I've seen many subject lines that didn't actually refer to the Subject at all. I was looking for a recent example and there happened to be one.

"Talk all you can about all you know all of the time."

I Understand

I didn't want to share it but thought it ought to be.

Any way I can embed a video?

Sounds like a message from Manystrom to me.

OK, let's go to other forums to discuss things that aren't directly related to the campaign.

Nite-nite. I'm off to another Forum.

Manny, please END the Flag Feature.

Its too powerful a weapon for those who can't handle rational arguement. When they loose the argument or CAN NOT MAKE ONE, they flag.

Please end this feature. For a movement to be about Freedom & Liberty, that FLAGS all decenting voices, it makes for a paronoid movement.

You say, behave like Ron Paul, well, Ron Paul beleives in Freedom of Speech.
If you don't like whats on TV, change the Chanel. If you don't like whats on, produce your own shows. But Ron Paul Would NEVER Flag someone as offensive because of ones arguement or opinions or point of view.

Please END the FLAG feature.

Long live the RP R3VOLUTION,

I don't care for a flag

I don't care for a flag feature either, it is definitely subject to abuse. Guidelines should be sufficient and if not then the moderators should use their best judgment on any given comment or thread based on the guidelines as they are set forth.

The biggest problem with the flag feature is it invites abuse from the clueless. I've decided not to flag again.

Not to be a wet blanket,but...

You Wrote,

"I set this up to be an open forum for the honest discussion of ideas and the search for truth."

If the campaign has come to a close in the "conventional sense",there is not much else to discuss other than supporting other like minded candidates,and searching for the truth.

My question is. What truth is allowed to be searched for?

Many other things are related in one way or the other to protecting our health and freedom,so what do you suggest?

Are you saying don't question 9/11?
Are you saying don't question the lingering trails left in the sky by unmarked planes?
Are you saying we shouldn't talk about food shortages and preparing for disaster?
Just curious....

Ron Paul "Sign Wave Across the USA" -- November 5th!

The Senate resolution 511 is illegal "Natural Born issue".

The Senate voted to break the law of the land on Resolution 511 this week. The Senate declared that McCain is a natural born citizen. Now with the help of Muddy Thoughts (google “Panmanchurian Candidate: McCain INELIGIBLE”)

“McCain has claimed that the Naturalization Act of 1790 (26 March 1790) covers his status as a “natural born” citizen. That is entirely not true. A close look at that Act indicates that it only covered “admission as a citizen”—meaning naturalization—and in any case, that Act was repealed in part on 29 January 1795, and the rest was repealed on 14 April 1802. So that argument does not work, because it was repealed long before McCain was born, and because it created naturalization instead of natural born citizenship were it still in effect.”

Now we know Ted Olsen’s skills as a Lawyer showed in the hanging chad election in Florida. I do not understand why the Democrats voted for this resolution. To me it says that we don’t have a choice, THE LESSER OF TWO EVILS IS STILL EVIL. Judge Andrew P. Napolitano frankly discusses how the federal government has circumvented the Constitution and is systematically dismantling the rights and freedoms that are the foundation of American democracy in his book In A Nation Of Sheep. THIS SENATE RESOLUTION IS CLEARLY ONE OF THOSE EVENTS. If the Senate wants to change the Constitution there is a tool for this…. It is called Article V.

"The Congress, whenever two thirds of both Houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose Amendments to this Constitution, or, on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments, which in either Case, shall be valid to all Intents and Purposes, as Part of this Constitution, when ratified by the Legislatures of three fourths of the several States or by Conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other Mode of Ratification may be proposed by the Congress; Provided that no Amendment which may be made prior to the Year One thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any Manner affect the first and fourth Clauses in the Ninth Section of the first Article; and that no State, without its Consent, shall be deprived of its equal Suffrage in the Senate."

There are two lawsuits in the country pressing this issue. I urge that you pursue more of these lawsuits to nullify McCain’s delegates. I find it absolutely repugnant that the Senate takes an oath to the constitution and does not obey it. The politicians again circumvented the Law and this Sheep is at least making noise. My agenda is simple I have children approaching the age of responsibility and feel awful about leaving them the debt and moral corruptness of the political and economic system of today

Michael, The Site Is Almost Perfectly Tweaked........

still a tad slow (could be my ip I don't know) but now we can see our user id's and backtrack old post's for reference.Awesome, Your Rockin!!!!!!!!
