Forum Posting Guidelines

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:

http://www.dailypaul.com/...

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, 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.

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. 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, 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,
Michael Nystrom

Thanks

All members need to read!

Thanks,

Been here over a year, and still learning to spell.

Today is the day we need to rush the hill. Tell your rep not to fear, fear is for fools, and a tool of tyrants. Wisemen face their fears.
Tell your reps that they will be protected by the R3volution.

Palin v. Obama

Why hasn't the point been made that Palin is more qualified to be President than Obama? Everyone questions her qualifications when they should be questioning his!

I Got My Poster Last Week!

A Declaration of Hope, Love and Peace…

A Declaration of Hope, Love and Peace… The Declaration of Independence - The Constitution - The Bill of Rights. The Heart and Soul of Ron Paul’s Revolution.

What America needs now is a revolution of hope, love and peace. This revolution must rekindle the same love and passion our founding fathers had for our birthing nation; our not yet formed but quite United States.

The love for country that the people who made America felt for America must not perish from America. Only that kind of love can lead a revolution toward liberty.

They who made our country; their love was mighty and their hope was unbounded. And now we who want to be part of this revolution of hope, love and peace, must learn to hope and love at least as well as they.

The essential ground of being that inspired our Constitution was one of hope, love and peace. A young America had immense hope for her future. A young America thrived under the wise and loving guidance of her early leaders. A young America favored peace.

Now we who embark on this new enterprise must also learn to hope again for a grand new future. A future we will build together. We must learn how to love ourselves and each other enough to free America from an iron fist of fear. To love our country is to love ourselves. We, brothers and sisters; we are our country; you, me and all U.S. citizens. Not the government. Not our name, the United States. Not our flag, but us! That’s what The United States of America is. It is us, according to the Constitution… Remember “We the people…”

Only love can defeat fear. We can love our flag and our name and yes even our government because a government of hope, love and peace is a government you can love, but it is people who can feel this love. I don’t think we the people feel much loved by our government right now.

Above all we must learn how to be at peace. Meditate once in a while, it won’t kill you, and it might make your life a little easier. When you discover deep calmness within your self, you may also find that it is easier for those around you to be calm. Peace can blossom only from within; it can only take birth inside our hearts. A hardened heart cannot have peace, cannot make peace. So peace on earth can only start from within our hearts.

This must be a revolution of love and kindness, not violence. The world is too small to be fighting over resources, technology and ideology. All of us are in this little lifeboat together. My oil is your oil; your water is my water; our grain is their grain; their air is our air. We must celebrate our world resources and learn how to be friends again and trade for them fairly, not start preemptive wars to control the world’s resources.

The world is just big enough to have nations but it may not be such a good idea to have a world of united nations. It would be wonderful to have a world of sovereign nations that respect each other and never threaten each other. In such a world we have the joy of celebrating national differences even as nations grow and support each other through honest free trade.

The government that now leads the United States of America is no longer worthy of that responsibility. It has not only failed to lead, it has betrayed us… we the people. Can you remember the last time you heard somebody say “It’s a free country”?

Above all else never abandon your sovereignty. The essence of a sovereign nation is in her sovereign people. The moment you surrender your sovereignty is the beginning of the end of the Republic. Only a sovereign people can sustain and defend a true republic.

Are we those few, those fortunate few who are to serve as sparks for a revolution?

Those blessed few who pledge their life, their liberty and their sacred honor on restoring America to the American people. Let’s follow those sacred words of the inspired founders of our republic. Those words illuminate the way on our path of liberty.

I am hardly an expert on things political. But I know enough to say that the word politics comes from politic. Now politic is an interesting word. It describes action. And these actions are said to be wise, following a good policy, leading to one’s advantage, shrewd. According to precise definition, politic originally came from the Greek politikos, of a citizen. Republic comes to us through Latin, res publica, public affairs, matters that concern the whole population, it’s a public thing.

I hear a call to revolution of the highest order. This Ron Paul Revolution that I support is a revolution that is launched in hope, sustained in love and lived in peace. May every negotiation begin in hope. Let us welcome at each conference table the hope for success in discovering solutions to even the most difficult disagreements and confrontations. That Hope for Success can be a guiding light as we search in the darkness of mistrust, antipathy, prejudice, disappointment and anger. Let love blossom in our hearts for the sustainable success of mankind. Let that love guide us back to goodwill, integrity, responsibility for ourselves, our environment and each other, as a community of sovereign nations thriving in a sustainable free and prosperous world. Imagine world wide love, kindness and compassion.

Truth and transparency in international relationships is indispensable now. Nothing less than a shift in paradigm will do. Peace may have to be found in an entirely new way of being with each other. The bellicose way of bulldozing through life is so passé. Now we need to listen to each other, pay attention to the needs of others, be self sufficient yet team players, while remembering to be grateful, celebrate and protect our precious individual freedom.

This revolution for liberty that I support and work to implement, is nothing more than a deep longing we all feel to return to our inalienable right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. There was a time in America when I think we did feel alive, and at liberty and definitely pursuing our happiness. What happened to us? Look where we are now compared to that much celebrated part of our history just after World War Two, when you could hitchhike from New York to California in your Army uniform and you would hardly have to pay for a meal or a place to sleep. There was a time when Americans depended on and trusted each other.

But almost from the beginnings of our glorious, even if humble, origins there has been subtle treachery afoot. Even as we felt safer and more optimistic a few decades ago, our government (conspiring with people of great wealth and power) was busily working to undermine our freedom and financial security. There is an abundance of information available on the internet for you to learn how this has all been accomplished. A great way to begin educating yourself might be to read The Creature from Jekyll Island by G. Edward Griffin. The critical thing to understand now is that we, the people, are in a dysfunctional relationship with our government. Unfortunately for us this relationship is rapidly becoming abusive.

If someone stole daily from your nest egg and you were powerless to do anything about it or unaware that you were being robbed, would you call it abusive? And if your sweet patriot brothers, sisters, daughters and sons volunteer to go to war and fight and spill their precious blood for our country, and it turns out that the war that took their lives is illegal and completely unnecessary, would you say that is abusive? In fact that war that took their life is just more of the same continuous effort of the hidden political power structure to rip off the American people, their savings and their very net worth.

As more and more is discovered about how we got where we are now, there will be a tendency to get angry. Well, let me assure you that anger vented unwisely is just more salt in the wounds of war.

Compassion must open our hearts and minds to see that the men and the women who have so well plotted against a free people did nothing more or less than any normal person would do when great wealth and power are available. But that would be just a beginning. Then we need the power of the reality of truth. We ask for truth and transparency at all government and beurecratic levels. We demand the restoration of habeas corpus, and we will take back our right to personal privacy. We must, as common cause, unshakably pursue the truth about what our Constitutional Republic is supposed to look like.

Then we must ask are we in a constitutional republic? And if not… why not? After we have finished figuring out that we do want to live in a constitutional Republic ( I think we will if we all read the Declaration of Independence, The Constitution and the Bill of Rights.) we must start to correct the mistakes made by greedy misguided “public servants”. The most practical way to proceed, because speed is of the essence, is to investigate, discover and correct the mistakes in a spirit of hope, love and peace; not Sinicism, hate and war as we have done from the beginning.

So far this is a foundation, a corner stone. If we are to liberate the United States of America, it is up to us to liberate ourselves first. We can do it as a Community of States and we can do it as United Sovereign Citizens. “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

As we become aware of our predicament, that we are indeed in an abusive relationship with our government, and that it is our government that is being abusive to us, how do we proceed? I think the best way to proceed is to enter into open conference to redress any grievances and to do so as if we are clients in a battered spouse counseling facility. The common citizen is in an abusive relationship with the government of his country. This will be the second great trial of The Constitution. And I remind you and our hidden power structure that even though it’s little individual human versus “The Government”, we have the most powerful weapon ever given the common man, The Constitution and Bill of Rights!

“That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.”

We Americans have always been busy people; busy building our lives, busy building our dreams, busy building our country. We don’t want to govern our government. We have the legal right to do so, but we would rather resume building our lives, dreams and country. We want to establish a government we can trust. The government we will establish will be a government that is aware of its social status in our country. First it must be aware that it is our country and not the government’s country. The government is our employee. And just like anyone in business depends on hiring employees who can be trusted, a successful constitutional republic depends on a government she can trust.

At times I have heard the United States referred to as a democratic republic. That is not correct. The United States of America was founded as The Constitutional Republic of The United States. We didn’t start to call ourselves Americans until the 19th century. ) So let’s be perfectly clear bout this. Correct understanding of our political system is important for the successful relationship of a people to their government. Please do your own research about this but this is the way a constitutional republic and a democratic republic are described in a popular on line encyclopedia:

Constitutional republic - A constitutional republic is a state where the head of state and other officials are elected as representatives of the people and must govern according to existing constitutional law that limits the government’s power over citizens. In a constitutional republic, executive, legislative, and judicial powers are separated into distinct branches so that no individual or group has absolute power and the power of the majority of the population is checked by only allowing them to elect representatives. The fact that a constitution exists that limits the government's power, makes the state constitutional. That the head(s) of state and other officials are chosen by election, rather than inheriting their positions, and that their decisions are subject to judicial review makes a state republican.

Democratic Republic - Tends to be used by countries who have a particular desire to emphasize their claim to be democratic; these are typically Communist states and/or ex-colonies.

And, according to the same encyclopedia we are also a federal republic:

Federal republic, confederation or federation - a federal union of states with a republican form of government. Examples include Austria, Brazil, Germany, India, the United States, Russia and Switzerland.

To be sure, a constitutional republic cannot work if its government is in an abusive relationship with the people who are that republic. We are no longer in the same free America some of us older citizens were born into or emigrated to.

I know of no better man alive today than Dr. Ron Paul to lead this revolution of hope, love and peace, this revolution to liberate America. I intend to vote for Ron Paul as President of the United States of America.

True description for the Heart of AMERICA

What a beautiful piece you wrote! I absolutely love it and agree wholeheartedly that Dr. Ron Paul is the only man qualified to lead America back to victory as President of the United States!
I am writing Ron Paul in on my ballot, as the media so distatefully dismissed him.
NOW IS THE TIME, WHILE ALL OF AMERICA IS READING ABOUT THE BAIL OUT PLAN, to post comments on the news pages to introduce this wonderful breath of fresh air and hope amidst the ashes!!
Please spread the word to all Ron Paul sites that you visit, each and every one of you, to get the word of HOPE out to others who may not know of Ron Paul...and to the NEWS - comments, that there IS truly HOPE in America, through DR. RON PAUL!

This is the link I have been inserting into my comments on News Bailout Stories, and declaring that I am writing Ron Paul onto my ballot:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FG2PUZoukfA
There are alot of other good links that hopefully people will be interested in seeing at that link. I also am promoting Dr. Ron Paul on My Space and Care2.
We truly need Ron Pauls leadership if we want to restore any semblance of sanity back to America!

I wonder if I may post your piece or parts of it, onto sites?

Thank you for your beautiful piece!

~UNITED~ WE STAND, WITH RON PAUL - FOR LIBERTY, JUSTICE AND FREEDOM!

Hey Mike

Hope I am not violating anything........let me know if I am.....still active! And awake!!!!

JBS

Everyone knows that the John Birch Society was the up-market, non-closeted version of the Ku Klux Klan. I have even spoken to former members in Florida who took it upon themselves to drive people out of Sarasota, Florida in the early 1960's. Please don't say that the JBS wasn't racist. It was.

I smell troll droppings

http://www.campaignforliberty.com/

The DP is proof that the grassroots support for Ron Paul and his peaceful message of individual liberty is large, real, and not going away!

I smell trolls here too

bump!

Poor Logic

JBS Rocks.

In the 1960's many in the Democrat and Republican party were racist too.

Some were Senators and Govenors.

Virtually every organization at that time had separatist factions.

JBS has never had racism as a part of it's organizational structure.

Great 30 minute film on the different types of government from The John Birch Society.

John Birch: A Patriotic Exemplar
Like many of the noble souls associated with America's founding, John Morrison Birch was a man rooted in principles that transcend politics. In a "prose poem" written at age 26, John Birch gave voice to his Jefferson-esque longing to "live slowly, to relax with my family before a glowing fireplace ... to enjoy a good book ... to reach the sunset of my life sound in body and mind, flanked by strong sons and grandsons...." Regrettably, John Birch's tireless service to God and liberty denied him such irenic pleasures.
At the age of eleven, Birch expressed a desire to become a Christian missionary. Upon learning of the violence inflicted upon missionaries by Chinese communists, the youngster selected China as his mission field. When cautioned by his pastor that "more will be killed" in China, Birch replied: "I know the big enemy is communism, but the Lord has called me. My life is in his hands, and I am not turning back."

Birch's labors in China began in 1940, a time when the country was being ravaged by the Japanese military. After Pearl Harbor he dyed his hair black, adopted the garb of the local population, and continued his underground work behind enemy lines. While near the border of Japanese-occupied territory on the evening of April 19, 1942, Birch came upon Colonel James H. Doolittle and members of the raiding party that had just completed a dramatic bombing raid on Tokyo. With his encyclopedic knowledge of the language, customs, and geography of China, Birch was able to convey Doolittle and the crews of 12 American bombers to safety in free China.

Shortly thereafter, Birch became an intelligence analyst as a second lieutenant with the China Air Task Force — General Claire Chennault's legendary "Flying Tigers." Performing high-risk intelligence-gathering missions on the ground, Birch acted as "the eyes of the 14th Air Force," devising an early warning system that enabled U.S. air units to come to the aid of Chinese units under enemy attack. He also organized a rescue system for pilots who were shot down by the Japanese. Chennault credited Birch with the fact that 90 percent of his downed flyers were rescued.

On August 25, 1945 — ten days after the end of WWII — Birch (by then a captain) was part of an official military mission to Suchow that was detained by Chinese communists. Captain Birch and another man were separated from their group and shot. An autopsy later demonstrated that after Birch had been immobilized by a gunshot to the leg, his hands were tied behind his back and he was shot execution-style in the back of his head. The communists had also desecrated Birch's dead body.

In its desire to depict the Red Chinese as innocuous "agrarian reformers," the U.S. government suppressed the news of the unprovoked murder of Captain Birch. It fell upon Robert Welch to rescue the memory of this selfless Christian patriot from the shameful oblivion to which it had been assigned. In December 1958, Welch named the new organization he created the John Birch Society to preserve the memory of this patriotic exemplar. Wrote Mr. Welch, "If we rediscover some of our sounder spiritual values in the example of his life ... and learn essential truths about our enemy from the lesson of his murder, then his death at twenty-six ceases to be a tragedy."

May our efforts in support of Ron Paul's Campaign For Liberty be blessed with supernatural productivity and success!

Porn is destroying our people

The original post, as noted by others, made no comments nor implied anything about censorship. Therefore all comments decrying the post's censorship are beside the point. Why even make them?
The negative effects of porn are fairly demonstrable sociological facts. Acknowledging those facts does not imply censorship.
If a post claims that trepanation (the practice of drilling a hole in one's skull to combat depression/evil spirits, etc) is destroying countless people, will defenders of liberty argue that the post is coercing people to abstain from trepanation? That would miss the point, no?
Wheel-spinning in these comment sections debases the value of this website.

Please bring back the flagging system

I am shocked it is missing.

Or give me total deleting authority so we present an intelligent face to new viewers.
