The Person at the Daily Paul who I would Like to Thank is…

The Person on the Daily Paul who I would Like to Thank is...

...Michael Nystrom.

As I was doing laundry this week, I was thinking about Michael Nystrom’s Daily Paul and how I butted into one of his conversations this week and spoke to him as if I knew him and told him thank you for inviting us into his living room. And then the thought crossed my mind, wow, I wonder what it would be like to have people in your living room A L L the time! Then I thought, I wonder what kind of grief that may have caused to his personal life for the sake of Liberty. And then I thought, I sure am glad he stuck with it. I have learned so much and have acquired many Friends in Liberty. Then I thought about the appreciation posts I have seen of late and thought Michael Nystrom is deserving of our thanks. Of course I had the thought that someone might think I was brown-nosing, but I have no ulterior motives or reasons to do such a thing. I AM truly thankful for the Daily Paul and Michael Nystrom, its owner.


Dear Michael,

Thank you for your concerted efforts on behalf of Liberty. Thank you for a place to come to find out Liberty-related news and to meet up with Liberty-minded people. Thank you for your efforts to make this available to us. Thank you for allowing us to your “living room” 24 hours a day. It is much appreciated. I have grown much in many ways over these past several months. When I finally found Ron Paul and the Daily Paul I finally found a Voice of Liberty and a rest from my wandering from fox news, talk radio and some way out places. I have received much education and acceptance by so many here and I appreciate the opportunity you have provided on our behalf.

Thank you, Michael.

From the bottom of my heart,

P.S. My words are so inadequate; perhaps there are others here at the Daily Paul who can contribute to make this note of thanks more complete.

We liberty lovers WILL change the world!

those with pictures are Daily Paul fanatics,

they pay monthly for what they could have for free.

If you see something, say something, the government is listening.

Premium subscription

I'm a premium subscriber. It's one of the perks.

Yah that was my first thought

Yah that was my first thought and then big hair reminded me of M Obama. Anyways I also had the tought that he was a pre-incarnate Michael Jackson, but didn't edit my reply...I don't think I have ever seen a man move like James Brown in that video...splits and all!

Edit: I like your take off on Bill Nye the Science Guy!

There's only one way to say THANKS to Nystrom

I intend to write him a check after the election, God forbid he spend any on GJ.

Yah, I have been thinking about upgrading my subscription...

...and now people will think I made this post to put that little plug in...but you know me Granger, I just say what I am thinking :) Thank you for popping in in your busy busy busy schedule! I am at $5 a month...what a cheap price for the daily fun I receive.


Nystrom should be paying you $5 a month for your contrubutions, making DP a nicer place.


Love the shout out!!! Don't you see, I would have no contributions to make here if it were not for the DP! There has been something inside of me that has been let loose here! Blessings, My Friend!

Always a "yeah" for Michael

Built the house, keeps the lights on, and posts some inspiring and well-thought out ideas/opinions.

With liberty and justice for all...who can afford it.

How About this Great DP Resource -

Posted by none other than our great host, Michael Nystrom: http://www.dailypaul.com/120178/any-good-videos-to-recommend...

And it is from that resource there that I finally found my way thru some 20th century history such that I have found abit of rest and enabled me to put those thoughts together here: http://www.dailypaul.com/comment/2764794 .

That post...

is the gift that keeps on giving 2 years later.

With liberty and justice for all...who can afford it.

The DP...a gift that keeps on giving!

a great thought!

Nice post Bear :)

Well deserved kudos!

And because of the Daily Paul

I learned what it means to go 213 mph because from some reason this fun guy took the time to talk to me. Thanks for popping in here go!

Many, many

thanks to you!!!

...and Many More


I remember the first video I viewed about Ron Paul.

The name of the youtube escapes me but it was an original in the 2007/8 election cycle. It may even have been the Liberty compilation done by the DollarDVD people. One of the interviews was with Michael Nystrom and what struck me personally was his sincerity and patent honesty.

His strong desire to have a government peopled by principled men and women was it seemed to me to be the driving force behind the Daily Paul website and Dr. Paul exemplified this character for him I believe.

I have not always agreed with him on everything he has said and done but I always remember that interview and it helps me to focus on what makes the man tick and not on the occasional difference we might have.

So with all that being said I am grateful to have somewhere to visit and keep up to date with what is happening in America outside the controlled media and to get a flavour of the thinking of ordinary Americans.

Kudos to Michael Nystrom for creating this watering hole.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)

And a cool one it is!

"Kudos to Michael Nystrom for creating this watering hole." The sweet Water of Liberty!

"...what struck me personally was his sincerity and patent honesty." I love the picture on his Me page of him voting for Ron Paul in the 2012 Primaries. I think it exemplifies your comment: http://www.dailypaul.com/user/1
