Trying NOT to stir up any controversies about RP, but...

Trying NOT to stir up any controversies, but the "big news announcement by Doug Wead" seems rather strange. Let's see:

* Doug is a former senior Bush adviser,
* asking delegates to send info to a @gmail.com address,
* Dr. Paul hasn't been "seen" on DP since yesterday's meetings on ending the FED,
* and all events on ronpaul2012.com are canceled,
* and Doug does not know why?

WTH is going on?!

TO ALL DELEGATES (Yes, I am screaming!):

he was poisoned by bernanke

and the cia are gonna replace him with a body double to sabotage his campaign.

Easy now...

You're being too paranoid. This type of negativity is unhealthy and destructive. Try to put your valuable energy into working together to promote our efforts.

You are right. Now though...

In light of the time of my post and the access to information at the time of the post, yes, it WAS relevant, and NOT paranoid, not negative, not unhealthy and not destructive. (Please check the comments on this site at the time of the thread. What if?!)

In light of this thread and this Youtube video, I am very glad that I was wrong!

I'd like to put an end to this thread.

My last idea of a safe place to eat or drink anything

would be the Federal Reserve. The Fed would have motive and means and I would strongly suspect INTENT.

I dont know if you got this idea from my comment! I was joking around buddie. Chilax, we are winning!

a nod's as good as a wink to a blind bat

Mr. Controversy

What events did he cancel?? I am not aware of any cancelled events....The tea party rally was the only thing on the calendar this weekend..


For my part, I never doubted Wead. My concern was only ever about the validity of that email address - I think that issue has now been resolved (though it never hurts to get confirmation).

It's as simple as this - if Ron Paul trusts Doug Wead, I trust Doug Wead. Period.

"Alas! I believe in the virtue of birds. And it only takes a feather for me to die laughing."

What is the worst case if, for whatever reason this is not quite

right (Doug not recognizing the security weaknesses of gmail for example) of waiting a few days to act on this request


The worst case if there is something not well thought out or worse if all the delegates immediately act on this ONE(1)/First request for this information


Better safe than sorry.

Do not see any harm in waiting a few days for some clarification and allowing Doug the opportunity to respond to the very reasonable concerns regarding the communication method he specified.

"You are a den of vipers and thieves."

We need to stop attacking Doug Wead

The campaign is definitely aware of his live stream tonight. If there was a dramatic conspiracy going on here where Doug was smuggling information, the campaign would notify us immediately. They would not allow ridiculous situations to occur. We need to stop blaming Doug Wead for things, we need to move on, and we need to listen to the things he told us. Let's focus.

"We don't need a Department of Energy; we need a Department of Freedom" - RP
"We need to defend liberty.. and liberty!" - RP

And, may I add, Jesse Benton

...he's Ron's son-in-law for God's sake! Do you really think Dr. Paul would let him marry his daughter and hire him for the campaign if he didn't trust in both his loyalty AND his competence? It's not fair to blame shortcomings on the campaign staff, this is a hard fight, there will be setbacks.

He's married to Ron's granddaughter.

Learned this a "few" years ago...about using the word "BUT"

What you've said in your title is "I AM trying to stir up controversy.." When you use the word "BUT" at the end of the introductory phrase, you're giving a heads-up to ignore everything that you've JUST said - cause here comes my Agenda!

Try using "AND"... and see the difference it makes in the TRUE meaning of your statement and how it might be accepted.

"I love you, BUT..." OR "I love you...AND..."

Down vote this thread and up

Down vote this thread and up vote this one: Do Not Email Doug Wead If You Are A Delegate!.

The message is THE SAME.

Suspicion vs Paranoia

There is reasonable suspicion and there is stark raving mad paranoia.

This thread is the latter.

What is the worry here, that Doug Wead locked Ron in a basement somewhere, canceled all his events and is now trying to identify all the delegates so he can so something nefarious with this information?

This thread is correct

Just WAIT a few days, people!! What harm can come from that?? Better safe than sorry!

"The economy's not a class you can master in college. To think otherwise is the pretense of knowledge."

Seriously! ENOUGH!

Everyone of these threads, and all you conspirators (I mean really, I'm a huge fan of AboveTopSecret but come on) need to chill the hell out.

What you are doing by creating these threads is calling Doug Wead a traitor! Is that how we support a man RON PAUL HIMSELF CHOSE TO BE HIS CAMPAIGN MANAGER. COME ON PEOPLE USE YOUR HEADS.

Also, I love how you guys are down voting the rational thinking people here. This is not ATS, it's DailyPaul and we are SUPPOSED to be Rational people here. These threads are the antithesis of rationality.

Can we please just do as the man asked us to do. He needs our help. The entire world needs our help. Lets come TOGETHER and not let innuendo and secrets divide us!

Remember Ron Paul's speech "What if?"

Did you call Ron Paul a conspirator back then?!

You cannot blame me for not using my head when I provided all my arguments IN A LIST for you to read and discuss. And you addressed NONE.

Jesus chose Judas himself too. Your argument falls flat.

Down vote as much as you want. The purpose of this article is not the number of votes, but to wait and vet the situation and download the videos.

I downvoted this thread because

there's lots of the usual talk of "conspiracy" and "Americans Elect" and "wait for Rand" talk when Ron Paul is spiking in news generation.

This thread has NOTHING to do

This thread has NOTHING to do with "conspiracies" and with "Americans Elect" (no idea what that is) - all the arguments are listed for you to discuss. The latest news about Ron Paul is yesterday's CSPAN video and today's Doug Wead's absolutely bizarre web event.

Oh! Okay, thanks for telling me what this thread was about.

Phew. I wouldn't have figured that out without you. So, you were explaining to me what "absolutely bizarre" is. What's bizarre is the fact that you actually spend your "free" time logging on to a blog dedicated to a "losing" presidential candidate's and then start posting crap about them, like here:

Arrogance and cynicism are unnecessary.

Sorry for mistaking my affections, but all of your statements are plain wrong.

You do not have any clue about me personally to make any personal judgement, as you did.

My time is not free. My family pays for it. Ron Paul is not a losing candidate for me. He won already, as NE WON ME!

You lost ME, unfortunately...


interesting point!

Good ideas

Even if nothing bad has happened, it's generally a good idea to download those videos in the manner you've prescribed.

Good god, there's enough conspiracy chatter on this site as there is. Please, chill out on the paranoia.
