Am i the only one who is put off by all the conspiracy crap posted here?

There is only one conspiracy that is factual and thats the news purposely ignoring ron paul.

But im seeing some shady sources of information pop up , things like stuff from alex jones who is largely the rush limbaugh of science fiction radio (dont believe any of it , the man makes too much money for lying outright to millions)

And some even more insane things like fema wanting to put people in deathcamps.

This kind of stuff is hurting the movement and we are being labled all the time as nutjobs for these reasons , i have had multiple people talk to me and say "ron paul supporters? you mean those guys who think bush blew up the trade towers?"

we need to end this.

Conspiracy = 2 or more people planning to commit a crime.

Conspiracy = 2 or more people planning to commit a crime.

Yep! I believe it happens!

Sometimes Police, when investigating a crime, have to come up with a theory on how a crime was committed. Sometimes cops have to theorize that multiple individuals planned and/or executed that crime.

Therefore,

ALL COPS ARE CONSPIRACY THEORISTS! OMG!!!!

I'm just funnin :)

Thus us really a no-brainier

Is it logical to conclude that there are super-wealthy, very powerful people behind the scenes who exert tremendous influence in politics, the economy, foreign policy, the media, education, etc. ? Of course, and it is obvious.

Pull your head out of the sand

There is a reason why stuff like prepping has taken off over the last few years.

Hundreds of thousands of people are realizing that we're living in a very fragile, and some would even say artificial, reality controlled by a small number of individuals.

People are sensing that something is very wrong with what we've taken for granted for so many years.

Do you ever get the feeling that you're living in the "Twilight Zone"? That's because you are... figuratively.

I don't know if it's TPTB enacting some plan, God's wrath, or just a perfect storm of unfortunate circumstances, but I suspect that many of those conspiracy theories the sheeple ridicule are more correct/truthful than most of what we're being fed by our government and MSM on a daily basis.

Damnit

sucked in by another old thread.

I apologize to the DP for pro-longing the misery on this one.

FYI

The OP hasn't posted anything on this website for over two years.

What are your thoughts on 9/11?

Do you believe the official story? If so, that would explain your post. If not, then it should be easy for you to see the other lies.

Btw, Ron Paul blames a lot of things on the Fed. Do you agree w/ him on that? And are you a believer that the creation of the Fed was a plot hatched by big bankers?

They just can't see the true reality.

Really, I mean who would ever believe that super wealthy, cunning men with unlimited resourses could ever get together and conspire to plunder the time, labor and energy of the masses over time. These conspiracy nuts should all go back to picking there nose in there grandpaws basement. How absurd that they would waste everyone's time trying to figure out things that know one would care to believe anyway. So lets all forget about all that crap and get back to the TV set.

I love liberty like fresh cool air in my lungs.I love freedom like fresh cool water on my tongue.I love peace like the smooth skin of my sweet lady.And Dr.Ron Paul is the hero I believe will change the world.

Yes,

apparently, you are.

The people that think Ron Paul supporters are nut jobs...

don't believe the media was conspiring to ignore Ron Paul.

That says more about them than it does us.

AMAZING, after 7 years there are still those who argue about

What should and should not be discussed here. So in the grand scheme of the dailypaul, we must find out who is right and who is wrong. Here is the purpose of the site by Michael Nystrom:

Purpose
To keep the ideas and message of Peace, Sound Money and Liberty alive through discussion and practice.
To serve as an open forum for the honest discussion of ideas and the search for truth.
To share, practice and spread these ideas as far as possible in the world we live in. This site will thus remain in existence as long as there is a need for it, and as long as there are supporters willing to help keep it going.

Here are the posting rules:
Rules
No profane, disrespectful or divisive language
Spell check and grammar check your work before posting, and refrain from excessive use of CAPITAL LETTERS
Do not post the ENTIRE text of articles from other sites. This is copyright infringement, and could get you, me, and this site in trouble. (In fact, it already has!) Feel free to post a short intro, and then a link to the original article. Understanding fair use would be wise, also.
Do not post racist, sexist, pornographic or otherwise obscene materials
Do not engage in flame wars, personal attacks on other members, incite or encourage violence, post spam or advertisements.
Do not bump your own thread to keep it on the front page, or post the same non-related comment on multiple threads to promote your website or event
No Assholes™
If you have an idea, then you do it, not Michael Nystrom, not Ron Paul. You. Learn how and do it.
Any powers not herein delegated are reserved to the States respectively, or to the People.

So far as I can tell it is not those with conspiracies to debate that have any issues, but rather those who want to dictate to others, otherwise known on the rules as "assholes". We have done major things, we have accomplished what no one thought we could, and guess what, we did it all being called terrorists, nuts, Paultards, conspiracy theorists, but when you have truth and knowledge on your side you seem to win more than you lose, and today's political climate is proof positive of that. So take your uptight, main stream loving, anti truthing, whining arses to another topic and let this one die like all others before it did, and feel free to inject your opinion into debates instead of name calling, you might just learn something.

Always remember:
"It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds." ~ Samuel Adams
If they hate us for our freedom, they must LOVE us now....

Who is digging this stuff up?

Crap?

Most of the conspiracy stories that I have heard since the mid 80's have all come to pass. Crap? I don't think so. More like conspiracy fact.

The Jewish International Banker New World Order Conspiracy

is my own personal jihad on this site.

It has nothing to do with the Ron Paul message and does not exist, if you think it does YOU KNOW ABSOLUTELY ABOUT THE MONETARY SYSTEM.

I WILL GO TOE TO TOE WITH ANY OF THESE KOOKS!

I am so glad you asked the question.

Got any examples?

No doubt many things happen by accident or without planning, but what examples can you quote that you are referring to are accidental, and not the result of conspiracy?

the whole concept of the Rothschild taking over the world

Tell what you believe and I will tell you how much of it is crap....and I can usually tell you where it came from.

And please spare me the whole "when ever two people get together" argument, it's lame and pointless.

Iran-Contra

drug smuggling here in Arkansas in the 80's and early 90's. Dan Harmon, head of S.W. Ark drug enforcement task force and Saline County prosecutor is the regional boss of distribution for Barry Seal.
Some of those involved: George Hubert Bush, Col. Oliver North, Gov. Bill Clinton, Dan Lassiter, Assistant U.S. attorney Asa Hutchinson and many more.

I personally knew 3 of the victims murdered in the late 80's and 1 was killed in the early 90's.
I'm not putting down what all I know bout this but you have to be an absolute hermit not to know the evil that has been done against us.
If they come after me, I hope it's a bullet in the head and leave my family alone!

YA! Who are these nuts!

Why is everything a Conspiracy?

Can't it just be that we are trying to figure out what is going on? Is it bad to do research?

My new definition ...

My new definition of a "conspiracy theory" is a currently unproven fact in process. It is one that the name caller is desperately trying to cover up. Their actions only draw attention to the issue and notify everybody that they have something to hide. Every time you hear someone claim something is a conspiracy theory immediately think "Now there is someone that is shooting himself in the foot". There is nothing like drawing attention to yourself and announcing to everyone how desperate and stupid you are.

Only one conspiracy that is factual?

Operation Paperclip: Operation Paperclip was the code name for the 1945 Office of Strategic Services, Joint Intelligence Objectives Agency recruitment of German scientists from Nazi Germany to the U.S. after VE Day.

Operation Mockingbird - a CIA op that spied on members of the press in the 60s and 70s and paid journalists to publish CIA propaganda - also funded the movie 'Animal Farm'.

Poisoning of alcohol - The government intentionally poisoned alcohol during Prohibition to stop people from drinking it.

MK Ultra- mind control experiments done by the CIA were considered conspiracy theory for a long time until it was declassified.

Operation Northwoods: In the early 1960s, American military leaders drafted plans to create public support for a war against Cuba, to oust Fidel Castro from power. The plans included committing acts of terrorism in U.S. cities, killing innocent people and U.S. soldiers, blowing up a U.S. ship, assassinating Cuban émigrés, sinking boats of Cuban refugees, and hijacking planes.

Bohemian Grove: For years, many conspiracy theorists were saying that the rich and powerful met every year in the woods and worshiped a giant stone owl in an occult fashion. It turns out, ABC, CBS, NBC, and many other credible news agencies investigated this and found out, its true.

There are many more where that came from, Gulf of Tonkin, Operation Gladio, New World Order, Trilateral Commission, Council on Foreign Relations, Bilderberg Group, the list goes on. Do your research before posting another idiotic post.

For Freedom!

Please Keep Your Conspiracy Facts To Yourself

The OP suggests we ignore reality because some people find it off-putting. In order to "win hearts and minds" we have to stick w/ the status quo of acceptable opinion.

I couldn't agree with you more

I'm sickened by the Alex Jones garbage posted on this site too. This conspiracy sensationalism has NOTHING to do with Ron Paul or his message.

The people who hate conspiracy crap

are conspiring to have it eliminated.

Did you bump this thread, soybomb?

Why? Why not start a new thread of your own rather than re-hash a very unpopular one?

?

What are you talking about. This article was on the dailypaul frontpage and i did not realize till after commenting that it was an old article.

What is a bump and do you have an obsession with me?

Lol. No.

I'm trying to figure out how those old threads get on the front page. I scrolled back to look for the most recent comments and saw some of yours. Sorry. Any comment on a thread will bring it back to the front page. So, someone must have posted somewhere on it recently. I don't understand why that happens.

I can assure you

that it was already on front page when i clicked on the story.

Oftentimes, i do not realize it is an old story until after i have already read article, see comments, and post comment.

I still do not understand what a 'bump' is. An upvote? I certainly did not do that.

I'm sorry.

I don't know...it just kind of aggravates me when an especially controversial old thread hits the front page. If I don't catch the old date I read the darn thing, get worked up, type a comment and THEN realize, duh, this conversation is from three years ago! Plus, the original poster gets more down votes for an opinion they may not even hold anymore.

Bumping happens whenever someone posts a reply. I'm bumping it when I reply now. Then I believe that when others take a look at the thread it get rated as "Viewed" and lands on the Front Page after a certain amount of interest. So I guess I should stop replying. (Obviously.)

Sorry for the false accusation. ...Truly.
