Open Letter to my fellow Daily Paulers:

As a liberty lover, it can be very difficult living in a country where many people are either numb to the everyday loss of liberties we experience, or even support those losses when it happens to be inline with their own personal "values". From things that have been happening for decades like our jails filling with victimless "criminals" / substance abusers, to the recent criminalization of raw milk. The NDAA, the Patriot Act, TSA, Cops Gone Wild, etc... I watch the videos and read news that you all post. Its all enough to drive somebody completely mad!

What I'm trying to say in short is that its all very stressful. If you and I aren't careful these things can start to take a serious emotional toll. In a way, the sleeping masses all have it pretty good right now not knowing. What they say about ignorance is bliss and all...

Let me encourage you, spend significant time listening to and taking in positive material. If all you do all day every day is take in most of the negativity that can be found on this site and in the news and in the world, you will become a very negative and unhappy person. Truth is important, however don't just dwell on the negative ones, learn to find the positive truths in your life and dwell on those.

If you are a Christian like me, I have some specific positive truths to share with you. My disclaimer here: I am by no means a "bible thumper" or whatever they are called these days. If you are not a Christian, the following doesn't necessarily apply to you. If you care to read it, take what truth you can find and leave the rest. My faith is not open for debate on this particular post, I hope you can all respect that. :)

Romans 12:2 (NLT)
Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.

Colossians 3:1-2 (NLT)
Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honor at God’s right hand. Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth.

Isaiah 40:31 (NLT)
But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.

Psalm 33:10 (NLT)
The LORD frustrates the plans of the nations and thwarts all their schemes.

And the best of them all (in my opinion :)
Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Remember that God has a plan for us all, and we know and have been warned that this world is going to go completely ape-shit before all is said and done. But don't worry and don't stress out about it. God has good plans for our lives.

In closing: Lets continue fighting tyranny anywhere we see it, but also remember to stop and think about the blessings in our lives, and take care to see and pay attention to those good things. After all, what good is the freedom to life, liberty, and happiness when we have none?

~~ Love and Blessings to everyone on the Daily Paul, Peace. ~~

We are fighting government

We are fighting government tyranny, and public stupidity at the same time. It's not easy to fight government corruption when so many people could care less.

In a way, I feel sorry for many people. The government dumbed them down since day one of pre-school, and their parents are "products," of the same system. I used to call them, "grownups," now they're just all like big kids to me.

How do you fight stupid? It's like arguing with a brick wall the government built with your tax dollars.

We first have to break down the government wall.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

Ezekiel 25:17. "The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee."

If it wasn't for TRULY becoming a Christian...

...on my face, in biblical repentance, all ALONE in my apartment, on Memorial Day in the year 2000(as opposed to the false profession I made at age 14 at a Young Life camp in Minnesota)...I would have NEVER shut off Rush Limbaugh, opened a Bible, entered into the creation/evolution debate with an Acts 17 attitude(preach the LAW to the Jews, and CREATION to the Gentiles), or understood how Ron Paul is a Statesman cut from the same cloth as our founders!

I would be a spiritually dead Neo-Con; consumed by my own devices and talents, and I would most certainly be usign my God-given talents to lead people astray in the Republican Party today - instead of PATRIOTICALLY fighting for my kids and our nation's posterity!

Very close to my heart is the plight of creation evangelist Kent Hovind - his ridiculous imprisonment! If you havent taken in at least 12 hours of either his seminars/debates, then you do not discern or "judge righteous judgment" against him or the PURE faith of our founders.

We are LOSING this nation not because we are not a Christian theocracy, but specifically because the Neo-Con's are propagandizing everyone that we are IN FACT a Judeo-Christian theocracy(aligned with Israel unto our self-destruction through this evil alliance!)

Wisdom from the Creator comes to mankind when he exhibits a humble spirit. We have both conscience revelation, and creation revelation that says there exists a Supreme Being, a Creator of ALL men, who is good and HIGHER than Caesar! The proselytizers of all man-made false religious systems have deluded countless millions into follwing after idols, worshipping money and self, and killing one another in order to serve temporal pleasures and creature comforts.

I am here to tell you, the God of our founders, the God of the Puritans who criticized the hypocrites in BOTh the state and the church of Great Britain wich caused them to be persecuted and cost them everything is EXACTLY what this parent government here WILL NOT tolerate - ergo, Kent Hovind, and some of what Chuck Baldwin says.

In the name of free speech, face to face pleading is NECESSARY for us to operate as the correspondance committees of our founding era - we cannot blog incessantly, nor watch YouTube videos or Alex Jones documentaries unto the mere generation of simple disgust with government and a "negative" sense that we can do NOTHING to stop this or save our Republic.

It is my hope, in the coming months, to call upon the same churches(and this forum) to invite me to come to meet you in person and do some patriotic evangelism via a powerpoint presentation. We know VICTORY over tyranny is possible, we KNOW most people understand our arguments are sound; what the DO NOT understand is that we need the aid of the Supernatural in order to defeat our common enemy - and He is NOT striving with Israel, nor the Neo-Con's - according to His Word, He clearly deems them an ABOMINATION in His sight because they use His Name to justify their evil deeds.

I am confident and optomistic that this is a ministry I have been called to do, and in His perfect timing, I will come to see you all who want to understand more about Him, our founding, and the ETERNAL consequences of our involvement/responsibility in this revolution to throw off tyranny!

Just be in Tampa.

The Revolution that lead to the Independence of the States occurred because people showed up.

It was only stressful and depressing for me

during the first 5-6 months after I "woke up". You can't put the genie back in the bottle. Once you take the red pill...you have to figure out a way to deal with the fact that you have been lied to and "fooled" for most of your life.

But now, 3 years in, I for one have never been happier in my life. Going through the transition was rough at the begining but it was worth it. NOTHING I read on this site or any other causes me to get upset anywhere NEAR what watching TV used to (unknowingly) cause me. I'm a grown man and I used to be think there were crazy people all around just waiting to jack me or kidnap my child. That's all crap.

Living a truthful life is well worth the initial pain. I can now help others who are still on the hamster wheel and need blood pressure meds and other drugs just to get through the day.

And once I went down the rabbit hole I had to finally accept orgainized religion for what it REALLY is too. Letting go of god was rough on me too because I was raised in the church and was an active member of a local church until about 3 years ago.

I'm still a somewhat spiritual person but the bible and organized religon turned out to be as bad for me as TV was.

I've never felt more free in my life. (Of course if the Feds come and take me to a mental institution like they did to the ex-marine in another post on this site today would certainly throw me for a loop so I really hope something bizarre like that doesn't happen to me)

I'm all about PEACE, LOVE, The NAP, and individual liberties. Not sure how that can be viewed as wrong but TPTB clearly feel threatened by those of us that just want to live our lives without the fear of having our legs broken or all of our money stolen by our rulers.

Cheer up! It's all good!

GO PRESIDENT PAUL! ~ PEACE!

bump.

Nice of you to take the time to share that with us. It's very good advice. When I joined the DP kind posts from concerned members were abundant...its nice to see again.

I believe this is why Ron Paul is able to keep going.

Considering the amount of corruption he has been faced with for so long it is a miracle that he has kept going.

After giving the matter some thought some time ago I came to the conclusion that he is indeed looking to the Lord Jesus Christ for strength and direction and does not concentrate on the evil he sees around him in Washington. This is where his strength and conviction come from and is one of the reasons I believe he will make a great President.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)

I agree.

I agree.

Individualism-
To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.
