This Thanksgiving I Want To Look Back On How It All Started...

This morning just for the sake of it I clicked on the first few pages posted on the Daily Paul:


I wasn't on this site back in 2007 (I was only 9 years old at the time) but seeing how far this movement has come from reading the first few posts from Mr. Nystrom, I am so proud to be a part of it now.

Starting off with 150 supporters at a rally back in February of 2007: http://www.dailypaul.com/22/us-congressman-ron-paul-wows-cro...

To 8,000 in 2012:

It hit me that this movement is far from over and that we will continue to grow by sharing this message with everyone we know.

I just wanted to share with you all, on this thanksgiving day, how thankful I was to be a part of this movement and everything you have done to educate me.

Thank-you Daily Paul Community,

Here is a lovely trip down memory lane...

Here is a link to one of my early memories of the DP when I was first getting active on this site.


Now, THAT is one happy family!

Those Are Awesome Pics...

...thanks for sharing.

We need to get an early start on 2016: Support Rand PAC 2016



Thank you!

I enjoyed the DP history you put together!

Your words: "It hit me that this movement is far from over and that we will continue to grow by sharing this message with everyone we know."

I think are right. You are only 14...I am almost 50...Ron Paul is a young 77...and we have a message whose time has come!

I have more in common with

I have more in common with people half my age and twice my age who are in the Liberty movement than I do with all the other people I know who are my age. Liberty seems to bring people together of all ages as well as all backgrounds!


Yes, it does!

and you are right!

You're only 14?

I don't mean that in a bad way, just a bit surprised since you seem more mature than half the folks my age (and type more properly than about 80% of them)!

My 11 year old kinda-sorta nephew came up to me today during thanksgiving dinner and said, "did you know that paper money is worthless?"

Maybe there is some hope...

A signature used to be here!


Almost willing to bet this one is pulling everyone's strings here.

Ah, we were so innocent back then

I'll never forget seeing those first few videos of RP explaining "blowback" to the neanderthal candidates.
