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?

Is Ron Paul

Going back up?, as seeing the overwelming response is "What the" and "Why", to taking down the picture?

I come here to read about RON PAUL, his supporters and the progress they are making with spreading the ideas of Freedom and Independance.

And you can still do that.

And so might other people that can be converted because when they arrive they won't be relapsing into "Oh... That Guy.." when the see a picture, as the media has trained them to do.

At which point, you can then work on them and spread the message as Ron Paul hopes you will do.

Are you serious?

You are hiding Ron Paul because you are embarrassed with him?

I can see you point about the media doctrination, I just thinking your completely wrong.

Ron Paul is the avenue!, We are going to promote him in REAL LIFE, and then send people to the daily paul, they will come here BECAUS they want to read about him.

The others that come here, and are put off by simply seeing his picture and think "Oh . . that guy", they are not ready for ANY discussion, they need to learn some more first because thier minds are completely closed.

Ron Paul IS the focal point, and I will be promoting RON PAUL's Prinicples. .NOT THE LIBERTARIAN PARTY, NOT THE R's or the D's or any politician who does not stand by those prinicples.

I will be promoting Ron Paul and his principles till the day I die, just the same as Jefferson is still being promoted today!

So,

Ron Paul's picture was deemed a liability to the movement? I couldn't disagree with that more!

No

that's my opinion that's posted up there, not a reason. Do you think a Romney Supporting FOX watching establishment voter is going to stay here to educate themselves if they see a big RP pic here?

Time to spread the message. To people other than ourselves.

it's just a damn picture

but i miss it. i also understand why it is gone. i have funny feeling in my stomach right now though.

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

Reminds me of the Department

Reminds me of the Department of War, rebranding itself after WWII to the Department of Defense. You can change the name and try to rebrand it, but that won't change what it is.

Um

I'm pretty sure that Fox News junkies will be sent running the minute they see talk of the fetus as "parasite" and Gary Johnson. Ron Paul's picture is the least of your worries.

Are you really naive enough to believe

that all those FOX junkies are pro life behind closed doors?

In fact, are you really naive enough to believe that all Paul supporters are pro life?

I happen to know quite a few that are in their 50's that loved Romney and FOX in 2008 and they, behind closed doors are FAR FROM pro life. They just go with the party line.

Are we really arguing

over whether the Republican masses are pro-life or not? This is devolving. Bush and Romney seem to feel that it is important to keep up the pretense that they are pro-life for some strange reason, guess their handlers must be naive too.

bigmikedude's picture

You initially used the issue as reasoning for your argument

above, I didn't bring it up.

It was you that "devolved" it, not I.

Agree

Please have it back up.

Ron Paul may not be running in 2012, but again, YOU ARE MAKING IT SEEM IS GONE. He is our inspiration and intellectual father.

He also mentions an aim in 2016. In the main time, let's support Dr. Paul, and support ourselves, by getting liberty minded people elected. Because even if Dr. Paul becomes nominated, an individual can do limited things. If a good portion of the Senate and Congress are liberty minded individuals... that's a different story which I would like to see to become reality

"Truth is Treason in an Empire that lies" - Ron Paul

Educate the masses, and win in the end.

I vote

to put it back up.

I vote

put it back up.

Besides Dr. Paul said he is eyeing 2016.

GJ now appears to be the lessor of 3 evils.

Which appears to be better than the two biggest evils.

Ron Paul please relaunch your campaign. We desperately need a true leader.

Ron Paul is the Man! Put it back!

He will be my guidence through the rest of my life!

I WILL NOT be "moving on".

put it back!

Did the Ron Paul revolution end with the Republicans denying him at the RNC? This website is still inspired by the teachings of Dr. Paul. It's like rubbing out the names of the signers of the Declaration of Independence and Constitution.

-vapaulsupporter

No, it didn't end with that

Ron Paul has asked us to take over our State Parties. The Ron Paul revolution is still on for anyone who wants to join. Is there a site where those who are still "in" can gather? It seems like the site owner does not want to still be in on the RP revolution.

the minute you accept

this "move on" bullcrap, is the minute our movement dies. YES we move on and do it ourselves YES ITS OUR TIME to take the reigns - but the minute the words "ron paul" arent connected to you, there is no more us, we arent all libertarians. THIS FORGET RON PAUL CRAP is the establishments tactic to fizzle us out - I AM RON PAUL. that doesnt mean take down his picture, or that WE SHOULD FORGET HIM.. thats horsecrap. there is POWER with labels. the minute you take our lable, were done. that is unless you just want the LP to take over from here, which personally they've not proven capable over 30+ yrs.

Freedom.

I couldnt not

Agree more!

The movement

Doctor Paul refered to his run as a sucess in that it is starting an intellectual movement. He was just the tool that got it rolling.

I dont beleive that

Ron Paul is an INSPIRATION!

I would have never supported him, or joinmed this "movement" if it wasnt for his record and honesty, it was my intrigue with Ron Paul that lead me to understand what Freedom really means.

I found Ron Paul through economics, From finding Ron Paul, I learnt about Freedom, and how life is supposed to be, and a whole lot more!

I do

And I believe Ron Paul does. Though he is important, I believe that he sees the liberty movement and its future health as more important to the country than his run. Of course his record counts. I did not say that it was unimportant.

Are you

missing the point on purpose.

We are not talking about his Run for the Presidency. We are talking about promoting RON PAUL'S PRINCIPLES, everything this "movement" is, is epitomized in Ron Paul.

Im pretty sure we agree, I simply dont understand how talking down referrences to Paul will help, at all!

Listen slowly . . I . . Will . . be . .Promoting . . Ron . . Paul's . . Priniciples . . until . . the . . day . . I . . Die!

Maybe this site should be renamed the Daily Libertarian

The Libertaian Party seems to have changed since I supported Harry Browne. Party allegiance seems to be more important then peaceful, personal liberty. IMHO
