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.

Thank you Mr Nystrom, DailyPaul Innkeeper

I rightly respect what you & others here are doing for Ron Paul & other Liberty Candidates.

I try to limit the trouble I cause here. I take my McIntosh off & leave it out on the back porch. I mostly kick the mud off my shoes before entering. Don't use up all your creme nor sugar w/ my morning coffee. It wasn't me that stole that apple pie cooling on the window sill.

I travel w/ some rough company. Swear. Smoke cigars. Drink. Gamble. Croon w/ the ladies & my guitar. Flail at accordion. And otherwise made quite a ruckus.

I am sorry to your other guests... Keeping them up late & all.

Thank you for tolerating me & the other fools I drag in. I am grateful I ain't boarding in the barn where folks of my ilk might not be welcome.

Much obliged. Regards to the Misses. Respectfully,

Me too!

"I am grateful I ain't boarding in the barn where folks of my ilk might not be welcome."

and thanks for leaving some cream for me.

Absolutely Thank you Michael!

This site has been pivotal in not only helping to grow the Liberty Movement and promote freedom across this country but has also been a great place to get real news and information on all kinds of topics, many times before it even gets released to the traditional media outlets.

Thank you for creating this amazing community, it has changed my life for the better as I have learned a lot from everyone in here.

Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

Thank you for creating this amazing community...

isn't it a nice one! I share your sentiments!

I agree. I think you put it quite well.


Free includes debt-free!

You are

a funny guy! I read our little discussion a few times the other day just so I could continue to laugh out loud. Nothing like playing in your own comedy show...and of all places, here on Michael Nystrom's Daily Paul!

Thank you, Michael...

for the Daily PAUL. It's nice to have a place to talk liberty with fellow RON PAUL supporters. This site is the first place I go for news, and I've learned so much.

I don't play, I commission the league.

Especially since...Pauling is Your Hobby!!!

Yes, the Daily Paul is a great place to exercise your Hobby! My hobby too!

a Vital Hub...

and a place of refuge.
Thank you Michael... you hold down the Fort... Fort Paul! booyah!! :)

Galatians 6:9 Let us not grow weary in well doing, for in due season we shall reap.... if we do not lose heart.

Fort Paul! !!!

Love it and Gal 6:9 as well!

Here! Here!

Big Positive Energy Hugs to Michael and Mrs. Nystrom for their sacrifice of time, finance and energy that we may meet, discuss, and expand our horizons.

Come what may, my time here has made me feel less alone in a world of chaos.

Love, Grace and Gratitude to all monitors, servers and those who contribute news and views here at the Daily Paul.

Prepare & Share the Message of Freedom through Positive-Peaceful-Activism.

You mean there is a

Mrs. Nystrom that has to put up with people in her living room 24 hours a day! Now that is a woman! Thank you Mrs. Nystrom!

I second that! Thanks Michael for the Daily Paul.

I would go through withdrawals without my daily fix of this site.

And I'm not just saying that.

The DailyPaul has become an outlet for me to vent my frustrations with the federal government and to learn from others who post here.

LONG LIVE the DailyPaul!

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

Hear, Hear, to Michael Nystrom

Yes! LONG LIVE the DailyPaul!

Thank you pawnstorm12 for saying so!

This is not rocket science.

Daily Paul 101: No Michael Nystrom = No Daily Paul.

There is no rocket science involved. With the election from hell right around the corner, this is a good time for this thread. Thanks Michael Nystrom for the Daily Paul, and thanks bear for putting this story together.

I appreciate you brinking that to my attention.

Thank you SteveMT, for stopping in. Yes, the election from hell is a perfect time for all of us hellions to put down our daggers and say thank you to our Friend in Liberty, Michael.

I second that bear!

And am so glad you wrote this...I had been thinking of doing the same thing because Michael truly does deserve our thanks and gratitude for this great forum that he created and shared with us! He is one of those rare people that not only talks the talk, but walks the walk. It is one thing to preach about freedom, and freedom of speech particularly, but it is another thing all together to actually live it and in my opinion, Michael does just that. There are many people given a voice on this forum who's views Michael does not necessarily share (mine included I am sure at times), yet he still gives us the freedom to post our views here with little or no interference and I truly do admire that.

I have participated in a number of different forums but never have I ever experienced such a kindred spirit with so many others as I have on this site. Michael really has created something special here and I hope it's around for a long time to come!

So thank you Michael for creating this site and for your contribution to this quest for liberty that we all share in (and for putting up with us who I am sure drive you crazy at times) :)

Thank you for stopping in and letting Michael know how special this place is!

My pleasure

bear! I think your timing was perfect too! We have enough things pulling us apart, it's so nice to have a post that we can all agree on and pull us back together a bit :)

Have a nice weekend!

Have a nice weekend!

Nystrom rocks the Kazbah.

This is the article that got my posting privileges revoked:

Did I hear Seals and Croft?

Thank you

for your thank you for Michael and for the song we can all enjoy!

Got to see them live!

When this was a hit.... I guess that makes me a fossil!

This is the article that got my posting privileges revoked:


I think we are all heading that way, but at least we are engraved in stone!

Thank you Michael

& Thank you Bear for this wonderful uplifting positive post.

so you're back to considering Michael as "your friend" now? Wow.

I don't play, I commission the league.

Thank you Legalize,

For taking time out of your busy campaigning schedule to say thank you to Michael. There is so much going on with the election, this may not have been the best time for me to say thank you. Have a nice weekend!

Enjoy your weekend as well

I was just talking with Tisha Casida on Twitter and by email.
I am so nervous these last days...so much is at stake -- it's easy to become depressed -- that is why posts like yours are so important to read and get the positive vibes from.

Today I discovered some obscure quotes from Gary Johnson.
This one might bring a smile to your face:
"Every face on Mount Rushmore was a third party candidate at one point or another."
