Daily Paul is back online. Did you enjoy your little mini vacation?

Never underestimate the importance of rest and rejuvenation!

I'm the kind of guy who always felt sorry for the people who had to work on Christmas. In my ideal world, everyone would be able to spend time with their family and friends on that day.

So to give myself, and the moderators here a well needed day off, I'll be putting the site into read only mode at 4:00pm on Christmas eve through Christmas day. I encourage everyone to spend time with their family and loved ones.

You'll still be able to read the site, but new registrations & posting will be disabled.

Thank you everyone for your patience, understanding and cooperation, and we'll see you after the holiday.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Patriot News
Stand up For your Civil Rights

Thank you.

My wife appreciated me spending the holiday with her instead of with the Daily Paul.

Smart move, we love you Michael.

Ps. I buy all my Amazon items through your link above.

Yes. The mini-vacation gave us enough time to

reform our RP2008 signs & posters into freshly cleaned & fixed RP 2012 arsenal :-)

It's great to have something new (SuperBrochure), something old (2008 goods & experience) and something reliable (the SAME CONSISTENT source of RonPaul news at DailyPaul) at our disposal! The free market of liberty ideas is working full-time.

So good to see you, your family & mods rested & rejuvenated, Michael N!
Yeah, Christmas IS about the Birth of the ultimate Peace-maker, isn't it!


Not at all!

I enjoyed my "vacation"

but still kept on spreading the word on Twitter.

ummm NO

The Daily Paul is like crack, and that makes me an addict. I was sweating, shaking and needed my fix.

It was great for about 3 hours and that was about it.

Classic take away technique Michael - good job.

Definitely an addiction

Even knowing there were no new updates, I still checked anyway...a few times.

I'm curious whether there was a spike in internet searches for Ron Paul, while we had to search him out ourselves like the old days.

Still tried to post several times on Xmas

I did not care for the forced holiday.

Thanks bud.

That was a relaxing day indeed. It was quite nice to know nothing horrible could happen here while we were away, which made for a very relaxing day of vegging without any concern of having to log in and sift through piles of comments and nodes in the spam filter, etc...

It sucked not having any news for the weekend, but it was worth it. Aside from this miserable cold, I feel rejuvenated. Lol.


Daily Paul is an daily pile of presents that I can open and enjoy. I did not appreciate the "vacation" one little bit and the snow simulation was no help. When DP is dead there's no joy.

New Hampshire and Ecuador.

Actually the maggots, and I

Actually the maggots, and I mean that sincerely LOL couldn't even rest on Christmas to spew their lies and hate. It just amazing that even Fox and Huckabee couldn't say, let's take Christmas off and rest with the Ron Paul hate, but no, they had to continue... and Huckabee calls himself a Christian?

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

No I did not. The Thieves

No I did not. The Thieves destroying our Liberty never stop and neither must we. Besides, I am addicted to Politics and Dr Paul, so taking a day and a half off gave me with drawl symptoms!

But I can liven with it and besides, this is the greatest Liberty site in the World. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Mr Nystrom! :)

Still Suffering Withdrawals!!!!

me too!

But i was happy Michael and the moderators got to take a break. I got my fix from RPF, and Ronpaulcountry.com, but it wasn't quite the same.

I did NOT enjoy my mini vacation, Thank you very much.

Being I grew up in the military, I'm the kinda gal that resents FORCED Holidays. To me, HOLIDAYS, in America, LAND OF THE FREE, WHERE FREEDOM IS POPULAR (If you get my drift), are SACRED. Being SACRED, it should be a PERSONAL CHOICE. But alas, we live in a society where NOTHING is sacred and most things are forced upon us, such as holidaze.

It would have been a better GIFT to have prepared for Christmas, and found willing monitors to protect Daily Paul to allow it to remain open for those of us who have established a FAMILY here on Daily Paul, that we would prefer being with than biological family? Some people don't have family and you can't FORCE them to make one in 24 hours with a moments notice. Maybe you do not feel sorry for them. I do. Maybe you would like to sell the Daily Paul? Or Maybe you are preparing us for when you dump the site and all of us with it?

Daily Paul is like a Church for the cult of Ron Paul. You closed the doors.

My opinions here are not why I did not enjoy the forced mini vacation. I lost my balance filling the wood stove and burnt my forearm 2nd and 3 degree burns, but that didn't stop me from working on the farm or going to Midnight Mass or Sunday Mass and attending all my Church events. I would have done all this had Daily Paul been open for Christmas, or as it was, not.

All that said, I AM HAPPY that YOU and YOUR family and friends had a overdue break and sacred holiday. I will not deny you and yours that. While we may not always agree, you have always been kind. I respect and appreciate you and Daily Paul very very much, from the bottom of my heart.

Thank you, God Bless Daily Paul, YOU and Yours constantly.

Merry Christmas!

Thanks for reminding us to keep things in perspective.

(But I know what I want for Christmas - victory for Dr. Paul!)

Merry Christmas to Dr. Paul, Michael Nystrom, the Daily Paulers and their respective families.

For those inclined to watch/listen, here is about 6 minutes of some very nice Christmas caroling (flash mob at a mall.)


No King but Jesus, no President but Ron Paul

LOL!, One last check before heading out the door

Reveals everyone scrambling to get in one last point.Love this place! LOL! Thanks again and have a Very Merry Christmas!

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.


I needed a little encouragement to get off this site.

Merry Christmas! Here's looking forward to the New Year and a strong finish in Iowa and New Hampshire.

Life, Liberty... and the Pursuit of Happiness.

Peace, Love & Goodwill

may 2012 be known as the year of Ron Paul and his message of Freedom.

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

Merry Christmas, Michael! You and your wonderful staff, surely..

needed that R&R with families, friends and all...and to gather our strengths to fight "for freedom and liberty" for another day and beyond Iowa.

Best Wishes to You and The Daily Paul Staff!!!

Btw, thanks for the heads up...

Merry Christmas, Michael ...

... you're a star.

Hope you and yours have a wonderful Christmas - I live overseas, so this site is my primary window into the R3volution. This year is our last hope to restore America to what it was always supposed to be - so I thank you (and the moderators), sincerely, for giving me that vital ray of hope.

Happy Holidays!
