An important message to Daily Paul members (new & old!)Submitted by I3ladeDragon on Wed, 05/09/2012 - 04:24
It became something more as you will soon find out! (italic text is mainly the response to the above!)
You feel like you are being treated unfairly for being a half hour member and that anyone else new would be treated just as unfairly. I came in here and not once have I been called out by the community for any shenanigans. I haven't even hit 2 weeks yet and have only gotten positive reaction.
If you come on here to support Ron Paul, then support the man. Don't try and spread your fear and confusion because NONE of us will have any of that. I came on here and started by reading to get a better grasp on what this site is about, educating myself on how the people conduct themselves here, and voting + bumping up threads I thought where important. Whether those threads where successful or not (99% were because I have common sense), I contributed in a harmless fashion and gained more knowledge on the community I want to assist in supporting the candidate I want to see succeed.
Not long after creating my account, I went and decided I wanted to assist more since I saw the effectiveness of the grass roots and how much their efforts have contributed to Ron Paul's successes. So I created a series of threads to provide news, information, tools, and a place to congregate for 5 primary states. Whether they were effective or not is besides the point. I was doing what I could to bring more order. We are known for being well organized and I came here with the intent of doing this at no matter the cost... because it's not about picking the lesser of two evils. I stand for something. Ron Paul stands for something. WE STAND FOR SOMETHING.
No matter the cost, win or lose, we are all fighting for our beliefs and what we think is morally correct. I wouldn't trade that for anything in the world! The question is, why would you?
And Ron Paul's rEVOLution has become an omnipotent force. I think it is bigger than any of us can actually really comprehend. Sure, we have the DP with a large chunk of the core that composes the grassroots! But we are only that! A chunk of a core. This revolution is much much much bigger than this site alone and we should all do well to remember that!
To new Daily Paul members (like myself):
- Stay informed: Just like any other forum, we get hit with trolls too. Unlike other forums, we are coordinating efforts to aid a political candidate for our next PRESIDENT at a grass roots level. We have something at stake, with people that want to cause confusion and disinformation. ALWAYS use common sense, check the status of the thread (if it has low or high votes), and DEFINITELY check the comments! That thread with the terrible news might just be a load of bull crap.
- Don't jump the gun with opinions. If you just created an account, chances are likely that you are either a troll, don't know much about recent events, or are unaware to how our grass roots efforts here operate! Take your time and become familiar! Assist all you can and if it will make you feel more comfortable, follow my example as described above!
To old Daily Paul members:
- Not much I need to say! You all know what's up and I know where you stand! It's Ron Paul or bust! And even in the case of a bust, we still won... just in a much different manner! You know what I mean! :P I guess all I can add is: don't lose your fire! This fight is far from over! :) I would recommend linking trolls and non-trolls alike to this thread! Bookmark it and use it! We can weed out the trolls from honest newbies with this thread!
