Agreed! Rand Paul 2016

or suffer 4 more years and then some of complete status quo garbage like we have now. I'm sure the country,the Bill of Rights , the Constitution and our kids and grand kids can afford that...

Anyone have a "Why Rand Paul 2016" article written up?

I'm trying to write two articles - one for libertarians that deals with the reasoning of supporting him as a libertarian despite his flaws (I'm in that boat myself) as well as one for tea-party/republicans that focuses more on why Rand Paul is the conservative that can win not just the Republican nomination, but against any Democrat as well, since that crowd seems to focus on the horse race so much.

It would be nice to have all that down for future referece even when not sharing them as a letter, but I'm experiencing a bit of writers block, so I figured I'd ask - anyone have articles like this already written (or know of them) and could someone please share them here?! Thank you!

I am!


We are at work on our committees now, and doing VERY WELL.

It's amazing, how far we've come, and though we have a ways to go, I have NO DOUBT the future is ours.


LOL! Yes!

Now that Rand has made the haj to Israel he's my guy!! That's what is important to ME!

Is this the

Daily Rand?

When Fascism goes to sleep, it checks under the bed for Ron Paul!

was it ever called the daily

was it ever called the daily ron?

It's not the 'Daily RON'

It's not the 'Daily RON' either. It's the 'Daily PAUL' so I don't see why this post isn't relevant? And it's certainly far more Paul-ish and relevant than all the other crap I wade through around here.

LOL @ down voting common

LOL @ down voting common sense and semantics. When you're wrong, you're wrong. But you don't have to like it I guess! hahaha.

why don't you register the daily ron?


And what exactly does that

And what exactly does that have to do with this? Here, while we're expanding the argument, why don't you go bid on dailyrand.com

Go place your bid and show everyone how anxious you are to contribute to the removal of Rand from your now empty home full of conspiracy theories and trolls. It's not like we need any of that annoying Paul stuff coming back to the site in droves.

I'm fine here

I think this is a GREAT site. it's you that seems to be having issues/complaints.

*It is. Get the basics right

*It is. Get the basics right 'son'. You are correct though. This is a great site if you want to drive away potential voters with 'shock' and amazing commentary from geniuses like yourself.

amazing the way i get exactly

minus two and you get exactly plus two :D

good luck with the daily ron

Please take it somewhere else

I've said it before, let me make it explicit again.

This is not going to be the home base of Rand Paul 2016, the way it was for Ron Paul 2008 and 2012.

I want to make that plenty clear early on so no one is disappointed, and so that anyone who wants to go take on that role can get started early.

Repeat: The Daily Paul is not going to be Rand Paul 2016 Central. There will be news of course - fine. But there will be no moneybombs, no rah-rah Rand is the only way to go, no protecting Rand from dissenting opinions the way his father was protected here.

If that disappoints anyone, take that disappointment and turn it into something productive: Your own Rand Paul site.

Thank you.

I certainly

respect your right to make those decisions Michael concerning your site, but if you don't mind, I would like to hear your views on why you don't feel that Rand would potentially be a very good president. Obviously, as you stated, we need to know who all of the candidates will be before we can make informed decision concerning who the best choice will actually be; however, it is clear to me that you have already made up your mind that, for you, it will not be Rand and I am curious to hear your thoughts on why you feel this way. Of course, this is a personal question which you are not obligated to answer, but I respect your views and would love to hear your specific reasons why you have already decided not to fully support him.


So its ok for LL to post threads on rand, but no one else?

Truth is I think it is highly inappropriate to use ANYONES name with out asking for their consent.
Why not the "daily nystrom"?

"gitmo gairie" showed up solely because of LL and a few lacking others, and LL endorsed Gitmo well before ron paul dropped his bid in an email..
In fact LL came out endorsing gitmo July 5th 2012 and wrote a thread about it which is now access denied.
And the same one is now posting on Rand- practically everyday and has been for weeks, but not a peep.

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

Rand Paul 2016

Michael, then why did you

Fade out and take down Ron Paul's picture?

Seems to me you realized the site was bigger than him.

His message lives on through Rand, Amash, Massie, etc. if these beacons of liberty aren't provided the same coverage or exposure... Then this site simply becomes a fan page.

I hope you reconsider your position.

Whether you like it or not

This site has become THE home for the liberty revolution.

I have a really good hunch you'll be re-energized after the post-election season coma wears off, and another 3 years (w/ Obama) have passed.

You'll be pumped up when the liberty grass roots, revolution and DP faithful start pumping out videos, organizing rally's, convention takeovers.

It will happen... Bookmark this post!

"Rand Paul Central"? My,

"Rand Paul Central"?

My, someone is optimistic.

but it was fine for gitmo

but it was fine for gitmo gary?

Michael Nystrom's picture

"Gitmo Gary"

Showed why it is not fine. If you thought that little period of time was divisive on the DP, you ain't seen nothing yet. Rand will be even more divisive and this place will be a cesspool of infighting, and I ain't in it.

Not going to go through it again. Period.

Lmao... People actually think

Lmao... People actually think Rand is the man! Lol. He's not a libertarian or a true republican. Neo-con alert, Neo-con alert! Sanctions is war my friends... Sorry

One Man Says...

...thank you.

I Understand...

... but there is quite a demand for it out there. It is 2013 and his Facebook page for 2016 already has 26,500 likes. Is it ok if we post for Rand Paul 2016? Even if the site doesn't necessarily endorse him?

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



Michael Nystrom's picture

I know the demand is out there

And I'm sure that someone will capitalize on that demand. Maybe you. I just want to let people know, early and often, that the Daily Paul is not going to become Rand Paul 2016 Central.

It is perfectly fine to post news about Rand Paul - just as it is about any other topic of interest to the community. I'm interested and I read the stories too.

What I don't want (and won't tolerate) is PUT THIS ON THE FRONT PAGE, especially, when the time comes, with moneybombs, etc.

What I'm not up for is having to pretend that he's going to win; keeping the naysayers off the site; breaking up fights between supporters and non-supporters; the name calling and fighting that didn't happen with Ron Paul because me and my team were so vigilant about not letting it happen to Ron Paul.

We saw what happened when I let it go with the GJ crowd, and I'm not up for watching that happen again. It just isn't worth it to me to go through that kind of effort for Rand.

I hope that explains things. I'm not against Rand. I'm just not for him the way I was for his pop.

That is an excellent strategy.

We don't want the NEOCONs to think we actually support Rand because then they might not support him.

Ha ha ha ha ha

That wasn't my strategy, but ok. As you wish.

I don't think we here have any say in that...he's on Drudge now

picture and all, talking about Rand's "pilgrimage to the holy land."


I wouldnt expect this to become Rand Paul central but I hope that you would vote for a Paul if there are no other liberty candidates in 2016. I thank you for all the work you have done in the past as I have been here since the beginning.

Michael Nystrom's picture

Thanks friend.

Glad to know that you don't expect this to become Rand Paul Central. Like I said above, I don't mind articles about him. I keep up with the news and goings on of the GOP, and Rand is a part of that. But 2016 is a long way off, and I can't say who I'm going to vote for until I know who's running!
