Why I will be voting for Oh Long Johnson for president

This cat makes a striking argument. I will be voting for Oh Long Johnson in November. Who all is with me?

Note this is parody. With all the fighting in the room, I figured I would recall some good ole South Park.

Don't blame the mods, blame me

I'm the one that put it on the front page.

Why? Like everyone else, I'm sick and tired of all the back and forth bickering about Gary Johnson. And I thought this video was extremely funny. Hilarious, in fact. I just watched it again, and it still cracks me up.

It was Saturday. I thought it would be a little comic relief. Whoops! Guess I was wrong on that! Negative 36 votes and couting!

My perspective is that that some people take themselves far too seriously around here, as evidenced by all the GJ fighting (which btw reminds me of a lyric - I've got a Bob Dylan lyric for everything).

Little boy lost, he takes himself so seriously
He brags of his misery, he likes to live dangerously

- Visions of Johanna

What more can I say? I like what Flylikeaneagle1776 said. That comment just about hits it on the head - and it got net 3 downvotes!

And I do agree with what many others said - that the DP has lost its mojo. The funny thing is that people can't understand the most obvious reason why. It is staring them in the face, and they just can't see it. I've already tried explaining it and I got nothing but grief for it. Its not even worth trying to talk about here. Not yet, apparently. Hell, even Ron Paul himself tried to explain it, and he got 109 downvotes (and counting!), right here on the Daily Paul.

Go figure.

I guess we're in that phase that the caterpillar goes through in its cocoon. I can't imagine that it is pleasant for the pupa, either. Its gene soup in there. The genetic identity of the caterpillar is the same as that of the butterfly - the only difference is the expression.

That is what is going on here as well. Transformation. This place was all about Ron Paul 2012, and that dream is fading away (thanks MMJ Ministry).

What's next? Who knows. But as our Christian friends here will tell us, in order to be reborn, we first must die.

Anyway, the DP does remain unique in this respect: It is the only place on the internet where funny cat videos are reviled.

And speaking of funny cat videos, I kind of feel like the little black cat in this one:

Ouch!

Peace everyone.

Yes!

Is it too late to get OLJ on the ballot? I know he'd win in any televised presidential debate against Obamney ;-)

Have we reached that point already?

"Hell, even Ron Paul himself tried to explain it, and he got 109 downvotes (and counting!), right here on the Daily Paul."

Seriously?

Another funny cat video...

Ever feel like you are "herding cats" on the DP?
Thanks Michael for all you do!

I am truly honored Michael

Wow! I am glad you share the same sense of humor I do. Thanks. All those down votes really were making me feel like I did something wrong on the Daily Paul. People were like: "The Daily Paul is not for humor."

I felt that we as a news community need satire. All major newspapers have humor. I like to mock and do satire from time to time. We needed a good roast.

With all the bad news that honestly makes me tear up sometimes, I love to make people smile. I figured this would do it.

I was doing a self satire of the Johnson infighting. I gave my true opinion on the deal. Then I saw dueling threads with nearly the exact same title. So, I threw my hat in the ring with Oh Long.

May the LORD bless you and keep you
May the LORD make His face shed light upon you and be gracious unto you
May the LORD lift up His face unto you and give you peace

I knew what you were doing, and I appreciated it, and I thought it was funny. I agree we need satire, and to not be so freaking serious all the time. I thought it was perfect. I wish more people agreed.

Thanks.

That dream is not fading away for many of us

That dream fading is not fading away from the Ron Paul Republicans seated on GOP central committees, or the Ron Paul Republican National Delegates.

That dream is materializing (not as fast as many would like, but we're turning around a nation, not a bicycle built for two).

In Ron Paul's message, where he says this: "There are many folks in the GOP who want my supporters to just shut up and go away, and they have resorted to every dirty trick in the book...." It's not just in the GOP.

It does not amaze me that what many of us Ron Paul Republicans experiences in the GOP is no different than those who marginalize, censor, make excuses to shut us up that have nothing to do with the GOP, never did and never will.

I guess some got bad genes in their pupa?

Peace be with you.

with LOVE.

I am with you Granger

Fortunately, it seems libertarians, as we can be, are a very stubborn people. Honestly, I would not have it any other way. I want debates. I want passion. In the end, we should all agree to disagree with particular strategies and focus on our own goals. We got the principles, we got the moves, we can take the heat and we are nobody's fool!

I agree with Ron's strategy of taking over the GOP. Others might not want to do that. They are free to do whatever. I am in solidarity with our GOP brothers. My big beef is that they (delegates and GOP officials) are insulted and demeaned here all the time by some of the "GJ crowd" (note NOT ALL, many are tolerant) or some of the puritans (who never want to win to begin with).

Likewise the Paulbots insult GJ supporters.

I am in it to win it. I am in it to reform the GOP. It is not an easy task that can happen over night. I have patience. Others don't. They want to act now! That is perfectly acceptable! We should stop stoning each other. We each have our own path to follow in the fight for liberty. Tolerance is key.

The dream is not fading. It is just beginning. Phase 3 commence.

Well said Burningsirius, totally rockin!!

Every time I read from a GJ supporter, YOU SHOULD, I think, "And you dare call yourself a Libertarian?" Since when was telling others what they SHOULD become part of our mojo?

It hasn't been easy, but Rand's speaking position in the RNC has just credentialed us!!!!

"Touch" would be a good theme song for Ron Paul.

It's funny.. but

Why on earth is it on the front page? That's just stupid.

NEWEST BLOG POST: 'The Daily Paul is Inspired by Ron Paul (September 10th, 2012)' - My thoughts on the whole deal with the 'Inspired by Ron Paul' picture being removed from the Daily Pa

The people who are criticizing this post...

...And there seems to be ALOT of you, this is EXACTLY what Mike is trying to address. We are at each other's throats. Our movement has become so divided. Just like dems VS repubs. If we want our liberty back, we can't do it with all of the infighting. Stop bickering and telling each other what to do and what not to do. I remember an episode of Free Talk Live where the female cohost (forgot her name) said "I don't like it when people say you have to do this for the cause!" (You HAVE TO DO something?) We are all playing our own cards against the establishment, and any effort period is a good thing. We all know Mike's heart is liberty. If you don't like his actions, does criticizing him further the cause? Not to mention, outsiders may read this and think "holy crap, those liberty people are absolutely no fun!" Remember the sheeple view politics at this point as entertainment. Know why its hard to convert people to the ideas of liberty? Its more entertaining to watch American Idol then talk about the federal reserve. The ones who have paid attention to politics get coralled into fox news, MSNBC, CNN, etc. Society itself (which I have my suspicions of whether this has been done intentionally) outcasts people who are into politics. People into politics outcast us who are into liberty. We really need to stick together, and let people know we come in peace, and we can be just as entertaining to the sheeple as Barack Obama calling Kanye West a jackass.

One world, under government, with power and money for the elite

This kind of stuff makes me want to leave DP

It seems like the admin is making a joke of everyone that posted actual videos or articles spreading liberty. This is disgusting. Way to discourage people from going to DP.

Please be aware

this place is being over-run by pro-Johnson people lately. Nothing against Johnson, just maybe they should open a Daily Johnson or at least stop trying to "shove him down our throats" so to speak instead of trying to ride on Ron Paul's coat-tails. Message is great, messengers are terrible.

funny...

but front page? That is just embarrassing. There are some incredibly important posts being neglected ----> over there

There is probably some spam bot...

that votes down every post that has Johnson in the title.

Yeah!

It's probably those darn Paulite Paulbots Dialing and redialing to fix the poll.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mx7Q8-5PtOs

It couldn't possibly be the members of DailyPAUL standing by the ONLY man for the job.

Darn those freaky few who stand by Ron Paul in their basement dwellings writing the codes that make their numbers look more than they are!

After all, the "unbiased” and “reliable news media" pointed out this apparent phenomenon as far back as May of 2007.

Funny

Look I am not a Johnson supporter. This was done in jest on my part to show the ridiculousness of things on the Daily Paul. I never meant it to be front paged. I was recalling a South Park episode with Oh Long Johnson. Watch the episode to get the reference, please.

May the LORD bless you and keep you
May the LORD make His face shed light upon you and be gracious unto you

I think the negative reactions are less geared towards

the post itself and more towards the decision of the admins to push it to the front page.

Although funny, most people don't come here for laughs. We come for the most up to date and pertinent information on the R3VOLution. When one of the top topics is a joke, we get the feeling that the admins are not taking the cause seriously. Most of the people I know want to fight all the way to the end and do not feel that it's a time for joking. The reaction might have been different if we were not merely weeks away from the RNC or if our civil liberties were not being attacked with such unprecedented force.

I'll reiterate. I think the post is funny. I think it is perfectly appropriate for the "Off Topic" section. I just don't see why it took front page over many other more relevant posts.

I got that...

... and apparently, so did the moderator who placed this on the front page.

But those who peddle Johnson saw JOHNSON in the title and ran with it!

ITS WORSE THAN I THOUGHT

He doesn't know ANYTHING!!! He is going umm and that recessions are 'good'. That is not what Austrians teach. Recessions yes can put you on the path to recovery, but they are not good. UGH!

Even the dp neads to unwind or blow off some steam from time to time. Being wound up too tight isn't healthy ... or efficient. By all means, front page.

I think this is funnier

This site

has lost it's focus when something like this makes the front page.

The blood of revolutionaries is flowing in the streets around the globe and this is considered noteworthy? It advances the cause of liberty? How?

If this can make the front

If this can make the front page, then why can't a final effort to convert/inform delegates before the convention be front paged? Activists are still working on getting important materials out to Romney delegates around the country, and we can use all the help we can get.

Front Page Material? Really!?!?!

Although funny, this is about as off topic as you can get.

Don't get me wrong, I love

Don't get me wrong, I love this video, but what exactly qualified this as front page material?

Watch South Park

the episode with the Republican debates.

Henri?

What if?

Ron Paul endorses Gary Johnson? Will you vote for Gary Johnson then?
