Would you look at that. The Daily Paul is alive and well!

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?

Daily Paul

I am so thankful this site is still up and active. Having the GOP treat our delegates and our candidate the way it did was devastating. And not even the Democratic Party has said much about it. I thought they might use it against Romney. When you know Ron Paul was our only chance of bringing the United States of America back on track (or at least getting a good start at it), well, for me I've been going in circles trying to figure out what to do. I'm thankful for the chance to be a part of the liberty movement and do what I can to try and help save this country from itself.

We've known this for awhile...

Steady growth of the liberty minded when under tyranny is inevitable.

Notice how many have actually started reading the founders documents when a socialist who looks and acts like a socialist comes into a position power?

We have had a healthy awakening...

We are not going back to sleep now.

Keep reading and educating to wake up others!

It means we are on some lists

And probably designated for extermination by the state. Truth is treason in the empire of lies.

We should get behind

Gary Johnson to advance our liberty movement. Lets not splinter this movement.

I disagree, sorta.

I plan to vote for Gary Johnson, unless something significant comes up. But I disagree with your reasoning. I plan to vote for Gary, because I think he's a good candidate. Uniting behind Gary in order not to splinter the movement would be counter-productive, as the movement is by nature very loose-knit.

Keep Plugging Away...

...that's all we can do. Educate when possible, be patient when no one is willing to listen, we know liberty is the only solution, ...

I suppose one might think this is a great place for discussion

as long it's about getting Gary Johnson elected, switching to a third party and hating on Jesse Benton because it got boring hating on Rand. That seems to be the general consensus of the talk here at the DP these days.

Yes.

But hopefully, we'll all get over it soon and get back to fighting for liberty.

"What does that mean to you ?"

Answer :

1. it's encouraging, agreed;

2. we still have a significant way to go with educating (read: waking up) the sheeple, though.

Thanks for the nice post.

Be mindful of others

We must be mindful of others.

Some are trying to divide us and dissolve our movement by turning us against each other.

Others are new to the ideology and their indoctrination may resurface from time to time. This does not make them an enemy. It's not easy to totally wake up after years of bad thought habits.

Often it's hard to distinguish between the two. It sure feels good to respond negatively to those trying to harm us. But what happens if you make a mistake, you accidentally turn someone off? Now you've become the one your initial negative reaction was meant to hurt.

------

Let's be civil and embrace anyone with any interest in our movement.

Let's respond calmly and courteously when others make a mistake.

Let's continue to grow our numbers!

Internet Freedom

We must ALWAYS stand and bleed for Internet Freedom! Non of our accomplishments would sure as hell be alive if SOPA/PIPA were signed into Law.

I wouldnt worry all that much

Its actually much easier to KEEP something free than it is to revive it from tyranny.

I am FINALLY reading "Revolution, a Manifesto" by Ron Paul

I bought it four years ago and life has been so busy that I have only now gotten to it.

It is an INCREDIBLY well written explanation of all of the issues that we are working to make mainstream.

I would recommend it to everyone as a "gift" to friends and family members. I think that by actually reading the well written and well researched arguments in this book, they will have a much better understanding of the movement and will get on board.

It is the MASSES that we have to aim at. Elections are the circus side show... it is the PEOPLE that decide what they will ALLOW the government to do.

I just don't feel right

on days when I cannot check on the Daily Paul. Onwards for Liberty!

"It’s not pessimistic, brother, because this is the blues. We are blues people. The blues aren’t pessimistic. We’re prisoners of hope but we tell the truth and the truth is dark. That’s different." ~CW

Sorry Folks...

Had some wind taken outta my sails and have been kinda lurking but the movement that the honourable Dr Paul has promulgated cannot be stopped; I'm back baby!! There is a tipping point that, if it hasn't been reached, is surely within humanity's grasp. Notice how the 9-11 truth movement is growing exponentially?

Thanx,

Jason

I honestly thought I would quit checking the site once the nomination hoopla was over, but I'm still on here nearly every day.

Not really

the front page is being held hostage to stupidity. Instead it could be used to rally everyone to get Ron Paul into the Whitehouse this election.

There is no fight left in the powers that be here for Ron Paul IMO.

Quitters.

This has always been about a movement, not a person. I'm not sure how you're helping that movement by insulting people. You can obviously state your opinion, but I sure don't appreciate your divisive spirit. Nobody's forcing you to be here.

Whatever

good luck surviving to 2014 or 2016 without a complete "loss of confidence"
in the dollar that will result in complete breakdown of civil society,civil war/Martial Law or another war probably Iran that escalates into WW3.

Yeah good luck with that.

Nobody's forcing you to read my comment either. We have a chance to still get Ron Paul into the WH as Gary Johnsons VP albeit a slim one it is still there and the owner of this website has this on standown from the front page.

There I said it. Live with it when there is blood in the streets because that is whats coming.

Sorry but you're ranting for no reason

There is no chance.

Gary Johnson already picked his VP, and he won't toss him for Ron Paul.

How do I know? Besides him announcing it at the LNC, I asked him in person at Paulfest.

Thank you for wishing everyone good luck

I've been in this movement as long as I can remember. We can't un-learn the truth, and while there is certainly going to be some hard time ahead, the best weapon we have in our defense is the truth. When they take our possessions, take our guns, and break our bodies, the truth is what's left. It spreads like a virus past any barrier, and it has the power to turn zombies into warriors for truth.

We will be here far past 2016. We will probably see some major hardship, and many will lose hope, but we will be here. Getting Ron Paul into office would be fantastic, but it's only one battle. The war is for our minds.

Keep your chin up and have fun. Ron Paul has exposed the crooks for what they are, and we need to make sure everyone sees. Nothing is really lost if Ron Paul isn't elected the President of the United States in 2012. We will almost definitely have great candidates all across the board in 2014 and 2016, even if Ron Paul doesn't decide to run for President again.
