The Ron Paul picture is gone...

I know that the Daily Paul is moving past focusing on Ron Paul's 2012 campaign, but did the Ron Paul picture on the right of the DP really have to get taken down? After all, our movement and this website IS still inspired by the good doctor even if it's no longer mainly about getting him elected. And that's all the picture said: "The Daily Paul is inspired by Ron Paul". Now there is nothing about him, not even a smaller picture. Does anyone else feel the same way?

Bad decision.

You have to picture yourself as an outsider. As times go on and things get worse, people will start to remember what Paul said in those debates. They may remember his name and when they link to the sight, it would be easier if they saw a picture of him saying "yeah, that's they guy that said all those things!" People relate pictures/faces with names and right now, the only face they may get with the name is the advertisement from Silver Circle(thank God for them). The whole removal just makes no sense. It almost seems like someone is embarrassed to keep his picture up or something(?) He didn't lose, he was cheated. No one worships him, he IS the reference to the liberty movement.


Maybe they are working on a Gary Johnson photo?

I agree - removing the picture was unnecessary and premature.

I vote for Ron Pauls photo

To go back on. If not, I will unsubscribe my premium membership. I'm not telling anyone what to do or anything because it is not my site but I can't support it if Ron is not involved in some way.


I already pulled my monetary support, I also let him know why. It does not seem to matter.

He keeps asking for money, "put your money where your mouth is", was in his last request for funds. He asked us about the future of DP, yet I have not seen a current post form Michael as to what he plans on doing with the site.

We have some awesome mods on here, Bigmikedude, SC Butterfly, & Jon. I may be mistaken, I thought some of these people were getting a small stipend to help moderate, one of the biggest reasons it was easy for me to become a paid subscriber to help them.

In the past I would just donate when he asked us to.

The change is too reminiscent of the GOP

top-down ramming changes through and ignoring the grassroots. Also like the RP Campaign similarly acting with no coordination with the grassroots.

So that is why you are a non-member now

Why do all the Ron sites make me not want to donate to them when they pull stupid stuff like this?

When that tard, LL turned the DP into his personal watch me yank my Johnson show. I quit funding the DP.

It is one thing to have someone try to introduce a possible Liberty Candidate for consideration. But quite another when they get indignant and start calling names because you vetted his flavor of the month, and proved that person is flawed and is not a Liberty Candidate.



You get called stupid for all sorts of reasons. I had to take a break from what Agonzo1 (who is a paying member) called 'the Daily Brawl'. You are called stupid if you are a Christian, don't support Gary Johnson, or love 'X' issue, where X is at odds with your personal morality.

I personally think this place is going to become Redstate soon. I have been warning about this for a while. I remember comments, I remember how people are treated even if I do not respond or defend them.

Maybe this is a call from what I call 'the Official Grassroots' to yank the plug on Ron to further weaken Rand's hand in terms of being an inheritor of the 'Ron Legacy'. Right now, they are trying to shove GJ down our faces, but there will be a hype backlash. It is already happening, you are proof enough of that Peggy (can I call you that?)

During the crescendo of name calling, I threw all those names back at all of them.


The point of that post was to show a mirror to people how they should act. Even if they down voted it because they hated it (yet engaged in it) I still won.

In the end, there are those who built up Ron, but now want to reap the harvest of fame, money, and power that comes with each slice of the pie.

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 guess it's ok

for the Silver Circle Ad to have a picture of Dr. Paul because they paid for it?

Ron Paul Was Right


My money supports the DailyPAUL. Dr. Paul played the BIGGEST ROLE of all in this movement... Why is this site distancing itself from him?

Not surprised...

This site turned into the Daily Johnson once the waters started getting choppy. I'm sure whoever took it down has been itching to move beyond the Daily "Paul" for quite some time now.

Then again, I could be wrong.

It should be a new word in the dictionary!!!!

And at the very LEAST a site that Lives well beyond US.

I guess

Paultards do exist. So Sad.

Thank you for the confirmation.


Feels like the M.S.M...

A new picture is needed

The other one had campaign 2012 nomenclature.

just goes to show how out of step the people that are running this place are with the community.

Time to start a different website

Time for a different approach!

Please put Ron Paul's picture back up

You're taking away everything that made this website attractive and strong. We know the 2012 RP campaign is over. But HE started the revolution, he's the one who attracted us here and educated so many. Even many democrats find RP attractive and might continue coming here and getting educated if the site is still strongly associated with RP. Please stop fixing what ain't broke!

It's like a shrine

or a Dojo, and Ron Paul is our Grandmaster. His picture is always at the front whether he is alive or not.

His idiology is more powerful than any hand to hand combat.

The Daily Paul is one of Ron Paul's Legacy....

Please, KEEP IT AS IT IS with Dr. Ron Paul's Portrait!!

I agree.

It's nice to see Ron's face permanently on the front page here. It should stay here even if he died tomorrow.

Wow... you couldn't just

Wow... you couldn't just leave it how it was? Booo
