This cartoon is actually a few years old, but it's probably my favorite political cartoon of all time.

This cartoon is a good illustration...

...of a conversation a friend and I were just having about distractions like tv and sports that people immerse themselves in to where they don't see or care what is going on around them or how their liberties are being threatened.

Funny but I'm not so sure

Funny but I'm not so sure they didn't have their own version of a couch potato back then. I've heard many times that only 3% of the population fought the British in the revolution. We're way past 3% in our intellectual revolution so we shouldn't be too hard on ourselves.

Good points my friend

It's true only 3% of the entire population joined the actual fighting to break free of the Brits.

Going to give a #Follow shout-out on Twitter right now with you in the first spot.
Thank you for all the good work that you are doing for the cause of Liberty.

Must be the full moon...

all the bickering going on in here.

well, rp4pres must have received this "bickering character"

assignment for Tampa and beyond ;-) It's been like this for almost four moons for him and a few other "characters".

BTW I love the cartoon. Patriot Act certainly is aimed to turn us into a bunch of mindless spineless fearful TV couch-potatos.

Only on a full moon?

Nah, it seems like another normal day at the dailypaul to me with all the bickering going on here.

Thanks LL

Too true.

Thank you

It's amazing how one post like this can draw EVERY troll to down-vote it.
So far we have 5 trolls saying "I'm here" -- waiting for others to 'register'.

LOL

Is a down-vote a bad thing?... Maybe if I was a politician. Keep telling the truth and doing what you do. F em

Thank you once again

I try to as you say to 'F em' to ignore them.
But some days it's very hard.

"Keep telling the truth and doing what you do."

Thank you.
That is what I intend to do.
Posted new quality material just now.
And searching for more.

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution, inevitable.

By definition...

By definition you are the troll on this thread.

NOTE: I am not advocating violence in any way. The content of the post is for intellectual, theoretical, and philosophical discussion. FEDS, please don't come to my house.

By my definition.. I was simply asking a question...

His sarcastic cartoon was exactly what I thought it was so by my definition, he was being the troll.

I have some of that guys work and it's usually sarcastic in nature. Remember the "Paul Revere" piece? He was mocking people for sitting on their collective asses, busying themselves with everything but what Ron Paul Revere was saying as he road through town yelling his warning.

So I'm familiar with his work.

hmm

Author of this cartoon is a Daily Paul member Kevin Tuma who used to be a moderator here at the time when I was a moderator here.

What are you talking about?

Your troll buddy Pollman was banned yesterday and now you want to follow his footsteps?

How old are you 15?

Do you know that this website is read by journalists media folks etc and this is how you want a Ron Paul supporter to be seen by them?

Is it?

What you and people like you do gives the Liberty Movement a bad name.

Please stop it.

No kidding, huh? They let people like him stay and ban all the old time RP supporter/patriots. This site has really gone downhill.

Blessings )o(

Yep, Pollman was a good dude.

This guy is an asskisser and squeaky wheeled drunk. He plays on people emotions and gets away with his shit.

PollMan IS, not was, a good man.

You and PollMan are both true and fine patriots who I am proud to know on this forum.

More than anything, I can't stand whiny brown-nose asskissers.

Who knows, he might be around again.

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

Of course, you're right.

I only said was because he has been banned.

Thank you.. I'm happy to know people like you and him are out there. Not to get too sappy but before I came here, I thought I was fairly alone in my way of thinking. That was a fairly troubling thought. :)

I now see things differently thanks to DP and Patriots such as yourself and many more. I know now that there are millions of us and we still have a chance.

i couldn't agree more with your post

and have felt the same way as you did
it is nice finding a place like this
i do not agree with some of what goes on here
it goes against who i am,but this is a friends home
and i am a guest
it is bad others get away with more that they should,
it is disrespectful,and as we have seen,the one who breaks
more of the house rules,gets a free pass to do it more often. i just hope this conduct won't be this fine sites downfall

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

I think there is a time for civility

I just don't have patience for people who are espousing ideas that look to strip my natural rights. I think in situations like that we've been way to civil.

If someone wants to start a socialistic program, I say more power to them if they don't try to make all of us do it. If people want SS, they are more than welcomed to have it but not at my expense. If THEY could see that, we wouldn't be fighting.

I don't want to force anyone but I will in order to get my rights back. To stop them from attacking.

you going to get him banned?

he was no troll,he might have used words here that are
not allowed,but he spoke the truth

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

Michael Nystrom decides who gets banned

And he decided Pollman was worthy of a ban not me.

People need to think before they verbally attack other DP members and break the posting guidelines on a consistent bases.

you got to be kidding!!!!

you have personally attacked me stating
i am writing in Ron Paul
you personally broke half of them guidelines
you preach about to others
you attacked a lot of members here for not wanting
to vote for gary johnson
day after day you have attacked people on here
braking more guidelines,but then create a post
about others breaking them
you are a hypocrite and a liar
i saw that post yesterday,when pollman pointed out how you were breaking our election laws,you answer to him,wasn't one of kindness
nor did you thank him for pointing that out
you argued with him,then posted the words you used to him
and in doing so,broke another rule!!!
from now on,i will just down vote all your posts,just for the fact
you think you are above everyone else here

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

hmm

You down-vote all my posts here anyway.
Always.

You are one of these guys here who told lies about Gary Johnson being a neo-con being CFR etc.
You lied every day and night and I was simply pointing out that you have no proof yet you accuse GJ while Ron Paul calls him "wonderful" and folks like Jesse Ventura are campaigning hard for GJ -- you did not care about that.

"you attacked a lot of members here for not wanting to vote for Gary Johnson" -- only when they attacked me first for posting GJ campaign videos here and articles show-casing his campaign trail educating folks all across America!

Baloney.

I'm all for people growing and moving forward and not being stuck in a rut of grudges.

But you continue on with your baseless accusations and lies here even in this post.

I don't know exactly what Pollman was banned over, and this is Michael's place so he can boot whoever he wants. Perhaps Pollman did go too far, but how Michael has overlooked YOUR antics is beyone me.

It reminds me of the Jack Parkman days when he was allowed to turn this place upside down with his antics and several who reacted to what he was doing got the ban instead of him, yet Parkman remained to roam freely and gloat.

Pollman was banned

Because he attacked yet another DP member yesterday afternoon.

I refuse to engage in a flame war with you.

I refuse to respond to your hateful comment directed at me.

Enjoy your day!
