Would you look at that. The Daily Paul is alive and well!Submitted by Benjamin Vander Jagt on Fri, 09/14/2012 - 04:37
Ron Paul was denied the nomination by the RNC. Jesse Benton has gone his own way. Gary Johnson wasn't endorsed. Rand Paul hasn't been dubbed the new boss. Ron Paul isn't running third-party.
Shouldn't these things mean that the Daily Paul would dry up and disappear?
But in fact, there has been excellent content and discussion. The grass roots are growing into a friggin' tree here. There is hope for Ron Paul to run again in 2016, and people are keeping their eyes on other important offices up for grabs.
Do you know what this reminds me of? Hope. I don't mean Obama "hope". I mean something more like "Jakob the Liar" kind of hope...though I think we're a bit more optimistic.
No matter what the power-lusting politicians do, we have formed our army. We're a rag-tag bunch of who-knows-what, and we're regularly clicking the "reload" button on the Daily Paul website, but the unavoidable fact is that we are still here.
Yes, we are still here.
I know what it means to me. What does that mean to you?
