Daily Paul Represents The Liberty Movement ~ Please Keep It Clean

I used to work here as a volunteer moderator and it pains me to see many people posting here engage in personal attacks trolling flame wars etc.

Just to remind everyone Michael Nystrom the owner of the Daily Paul put forward a set of rules and posting guidelines -- they can be found here:


1. No profane, disrespectful or divisive language.
5. Do not engage in flame wars, personal attacks on other members...

"Failure to follow these rules can result in banishment from the community."

Perfect Bro

Thanks for working so hard for peace.

legalize is such a gem


You're the only DPer I see who's telling people to fuck off.

You're the most disrespectful poster I've had the misfortune of listening to, and I find it interesting that you're a Canadian supposedly pushing for Gary Johnson.

I mean really, who's the shill? Do you think you're doing Gary Johnson a service by running your mouth and telling people to F off? I doubt it.


I went through all his post, didn't see anywhere he told people to f*** off. He said F*** Romney team, but that is hardly telling someone to F off. You may have a beef with someone who speaks there mind and say exactly what they are thinking, but try and be accurate. I admit legalizeliberty can be a little harsh at times, but I've seen people say horrible things on here and get praise from people. He has a difference of opinion, doesn't make him less valuable to this community than you.

double think.

"I don't see anywhere he told people to f*** off. He said F*** Romney team"

That's called double think; believing two opposing ideas can be true at the same time.

My goal is not to as he says; "Fuck team Romney", nor am I as he implied; team Romney.

Do you really think I have a problem with people speaking their mind, or do you begrudge me because I speak my mind as well, and some people can't defend their own words and ideas, because they're indefensible?

"He has a difference of opinion, doesn't make him less valuable to this community than you."

Is that what I was arguing; that I'm more valuable to the community? Let's just make this clear, If this is now a "community of foul mouthed Anarchists" who think they'll win with broken ideas and a gutter mouth, I'll serve LESS than no value in the community.


excuuuuuuse me?

"OH NO! He has a SON?" Neoconservatives and Liberals EVERYWHERE!

Rand Paul 2016

Just to show everyone here that you are misleading people

This is the comment that "you thought was directed at you" -- it was a general statement directed against those that vote for Romney and NOT against those that decide to write-in Dr. Ron Paul.

F* Romney team

On another note I just posted on DP this morning a letter to the editor of a newspaper asking people to... write in Dr. Paul on the ballot.
Yeah a GJ supporter myself posted it here.
Can you now apologize to me?
Enjoy your Sunday.

I guess that's what counts as respect in your world.

"you thought was directed at you"

I guess I'm just a retard than right, and don't understand how the reply system works? I thought you were replying to me, calling me team Romney, and telling me to F off?

Is this really what passes for "respect" in LegalizeLiberty's world?

I don't know which is worse, you telling me to F off for encouraging people write in their principles, or having to read that you really weren't talking to me.

You don't even know what respect is.

You're the kind of guy that would piss on somebody and then tell them it's raining, so spare us your posts about respect.

I did not reply to you or anyone else with that comment

I posted it as a general comment -- not replying to anyone in particular.

If you felt it was directed at you -- Sorry.
And NO it was not directed against people who write-in Ron Paul!!
My comment was directed against Romney folks like RNC chairman Priebus and other criminals.

Please stop making up stuff about me.

How do you come up with quote: "F off for encouraging people write in their principles"
Do Romney folks write-in Ron Paul????????????
Tell me!

I see, in your world, it's

I see, in your world, it's still just rain, AND you didn't even reply to me.

I guess that's the closest thing I'll get to an apology from you, just don't be surprised by all the hate your non-reply replies generate, or how ingenuous I view you talking about how the liberty movement is being received.

I've spent a lot of my time trying to keep guys like you from just pouring out your hate, and anybody that's part of the liberty movement would know that; and why. You can't help anybody, or wake them up, when you're calling them sheep and telling them to fuck off.

I remember a time...

When you could go to the Daily Paul, and read about the principles and values of RON PAUL... THIS is where we are??? Jesus Christ!!! "They made paradise a wasteland... and called it "victory..."

Drama, drama, drama...

Just ban everybody and talk to the same 100 or so people over and over about the past and the hope that somebody other than yourselves... will save you from yourselves...

When you take principle out of the movement, all you have is an empty vessel, as in a carcass... you know, like a corpse. Just bury the damn thing, because the stench is harrowing...

Did Ron Paul censor people? Just who's values are you asserting if NOT Dr. Paul's??? THAT is the crux of the matter, right there!!!

Think I have been borderline on a couple of those

Mainly posting links to other liberty orientated sites. But of course the daily paul is my favourite liberty site of all.

It is a good idea to keep it civil not just because it keeps the threads at a higher level but it is also easier to spread the message of liberty with composed reasoning than with insulting behaviour.

As they say - you catch more flies with honey than vinegar.

Lord Acton, Lord Chief Justice of England, 1875 - "The issue which has swept down the centuries and which will have to be fought sooner or later is the People v. The Banks."

No offense, but I think you

No offense, but I think you need to have a mental evaluation unless you are currently aware that you have an issue. Theres probably natural ways to counteract whatever in-balance you have.

Love your signature.

Post is still rated on the plus side

The people that are down-voting this post are also the same people the folks that abuse Michael Nystrom's website.

You abuse MN's website and everyone who reads it and you showcase the bad image of the Ron Paul supporter.

You and others who down-voted and posted negative comments here.

Im not attacking you. Im

Im not attacking you. Im making a suggestion as a friend.


I'm going to keep my nose out of all the high school drama here, and just say that it's true. The attacks on others, are so juvenile. I was called a "total loser" on my last post for asking for opinions on Alex Jones. LOL this is crazy. There is more name calling and fighting and bashing here than in my online mommy group, where you have nothing but hormonal women! That's pretty bad, not to mention we are all here for ONE reason, and that is to change America. We can't do it alone. We need each other. This website should be a safe haven from all the other terrible things we have to deal with in the real world. A place where we can come together and challenge ideas, learn new things, and stay up to date on the issues at hand.

Be the change you want to see.

Hilarious Thread

ROFLAMO! I was suspicious about legalizeliberty before, something was off about him... But now has been confirmed, he is a troll. I just used to think he was a Gary Johnson extremists who didn't know how to converse, but damn...

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

Educate the masses, and win in the end.

Hes not even a US Citizen

and who knows his real intentions for pushing up gary.

I have seen plenty of personal attacks from this guy and now he is just high on the horse because someone wrote a thank you post about him.

He actually wrote that someday kids in school will be reading about HIM!!! How full of yourself can you really be LOL

A canadian swaying the dailypaul towards gary johnson and by all means read a few posts about his real thoughts towards those that are writing in ron paul and he can't even vote in the election OR any US election for that matter. - My site on getting my little family prepped for whatever might come our way. - My site on growing marijuana

what a shocker, a gary thread

At least rephrase it to say what you really want to be said which is, everyone needs to be nice and civil to the few gary johnson supporters here and start supporting him versus writing in ron paul and please also start donating to the johnson presidential run because he is BROKE...

No cussing, no nada but gary is a JOKE yet not funny at all. - My site on getting my little family prepped for whatever might come our way. - My site on growing marijuana

The Days of our Daily pAUl

As the Days of our Daily pAUl turn.

Just getting going with your own life - over what you control, and not online forums, is a lot more peaceful and happy.

I think the homesteading subforum is the place to go. That's where I want to be in life - taking care of what is actually my life.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

Thanks Max

Whats the deal with you guys?

I'm not vested in anyway with anyone and am not picking sides here but come on...really? All you are doing is bumping the post (like I just did)

what are we really solving here? its like Days of Our Lives or something.

So you don't like his style...then ignore him. All you are doing now is making yourselves look bad. Its not good for the site...

You said your peace now let it go...

Even better, why don't you guys exchange emails and continue there?

I got a lot of issues with stuff on this site I don't like but I don't pile on those people.

Let it go already before you get your posting rights yanked. ..That would suck.

dex my friend

not sure if you know or have seen
but a lot here are just sick and tired
of being called traitors,trolls,bots
blood on our hands,work for evil
not a true supporter,but in fact work to
undermine the GJ campaign(by voting for RP)
me being one of them on the receiving end
of the constant dribble from LL
i can see the division caused by this person
even going so far as helping some leave here
and always there on others posts belittling and attacking them
personally for them voting their own conscience
and yet all the time telling others to stop breaking the rules
try this test,write a post about GJ,get some some if it likes it
get attacked if it doesn't(yeah been there,dome that)
several people have pointed him out as a hypocrite,me included,
and yet it falls on deaf ears(like a bot)
check out its comments to others here,it isn't pretty
breaks most of the rules here,and thinks nothing of it
that is until another does exactly what he does,and continues to do
on a daily basis
most here have more important things to do than sit and argue
or combat its lies,but this is what it has become
it doesn't like when another combats its lies,but is indifferent to its own,it is a liar,and has been called out on many threads
i for one am sick of it all,as is others

Leave an indelible mark on all of those that you meet.
OH... have fun day :)

I used to work here as a volunteer moderator...

And I was fired because I couldn't follow a set of simple rules laid out by the owner. While I was moderator I did whatever I wanted including ignoring the owner concerning front page postings whoops. I feel in my mind that this is really my website because I'm the one that made it go viral in the beginning so you all owe me for my fervent dedication because without me it would be nothing.

I've broken virtually every rule both as a moderator and a user but breaking
number 5&6 really does it for me.

5.Do not engage in flame wars, personal attacks on other members, incite or encourage violence, post spam or advertisements.

6.Do not bump your own thread to keep it on the front page, or post the same non-related comment on multiple threads to promote your website or event.

That about sums it up and you asked for it so you got it guy.

Heres the deal in response to all below

Its the message not the messenger so ...

Pass the duthchie pon the left hand side....

Not always true.

If the messenger is a hypocrite, it belies whatever statement they're making and impedes the audience's ability to trust the messenger.

I don't play, I commission the league.


Bingo My friend! So short, yet so concise!
