An open letter to the DP ModsSubmitted by Denise B on Wed, 08/15/2012 - 15:32
I understand that the Daily Paul attracts a number of different people with a number of different agendas and backgrounds. Let’s face it, we all know that a lot of the people that visit this site are not necessarily Ron Paul supporters. Being the bastion of free speech that it is, the Daily Paul goes out of it’s way to allow all voices to be heard on a number of different topics which it feels somehow represent the liberty movement in some way. I appreciate this and have no problem with that concept. I truly believe that any site which truly supports free speech should welcome all view points, even those that it does not agree with (although, they don’t necessarily deserves a spot on the front page.)
That being said, however, after five long years of blood, sweat and tears, many on this site are about to experience the culmination of all of their hard work: the last chance for Ron Paul to be nominated as the President of the United States. The work that has been put into this effort is really incalculable at this point. I know of people that have lived, breathed, ate and slept Ron Paul for a very long time now. In fact, this site would not even exist as it does without the inspiration that is Ron Paul. It is a sobering thought to think what lies ahead for our faltering nation without a natural leader like Ron Paul at the reigns, guiding us to the correct path to recovery. ( Call me an optimistic fool, but, I am hoping that I am not going to have to find out quite yet!)
Our delegates have a goliath sized battle ahead of them and they need and deserve all of the support that they can get. So, with that in mind, I please, please, please urge you to, for at least the last week leading up to the convention, reserve front page status to all things relating to and positively portraying Dr. Paul and their effort in Tampa. They have enough negativity working against them to last them a lifetime...this last few weeks it would be great if they wouldn’t have to come here and get it too.
I have seen a number of great posts concerning delegate chip-ins, motivational Ron Paul v Romney videos and essays, positive things that the campaign is doing, etc. etc. and most of it just slips right on past. As a tribute to Ron Paul and all that he has done for this movement, can we, for at least 1 week, follow his lead and keep the front page posts on point, motivational and positive.
We can all go back to debating the campaign shortfalls, Rand’s worthiness, social security, Gary Johnson and Ronald Reagan after the convention, although hopefully the topic of discussion will then be how to win Ron Paul the Presidency!
