I Have A Strong, Absolute And Definite Opinion Of Alex Jones.

As a libertarian I Have A Strong, Absolute And Definite Opinion Of Alex Jones. As a libertarian I Have A Strong, Absolute And Definite Opinion about everything but this is different.

For some of you my opinion makes me a great fellow patriot on the long road to freedom. For some of you my opinion makes me a traitor, a blind fool leading others merrily down the road to perdition. I am either a great hero or a despicable coward and shill. Depending on your opinion which is entirely based on my opinion.

My opinion has this power over you. I can literally influence your behaviour and your feelings simply by ARTICULATING one opinion or another. It might not even be MY TRUE OPINION, in fact you have no idea. I can even tell some of you one opinion and the rest of you another and LITERALLY HAVE YOU FEELING TWO THINGS AT THE SAME TIME if I want.

Well today I'm going to tell you no opinion. That's right, I have one but I'm not going to tell you what it is. I'm just gonna let you seethe and stew over this and wonder, WONDER IN HAPLESS SILENCE or in blazing fury just what my opinion is.

Because you either love or hate me for same. And this uncertainty is gonna gnaw at you at vex you and persecute you and hound you and harry you...

unless you decide you really don't care in which case you may kindly disregard this post.

"If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy." -- James Madison

#1 most pompous and arrogant post of all time!


Man, you must be smokin some kind of sh*$t, dude...

You haven't said anything about AJ at all.. - Negative or positive

Why should we seeth in anger over an opinion you haven't given?

Man, you must be smokin some kind of sh*$t, dude...

Smudge Pot

Typical Smudge Pot

Now this is something worth reading and cogitating over (unlike vast majority of recent posting on DP).


Only as high as i reach can i grow
Only as far as i seek can i go
Only as deep as i look can i see
Only as much as i dream can i be

With the passage of time

comes a new perspective on the whole thing. Maybe I'll share it as a 'DP Original' one day.

Couldn't have said it better myself Smudge.

People are being led around by their emotional strings just like puppets. Children operate on emotion and will be down-voting your post simply because they are too emotional one way or another on this issue to even comprehend what you just said. Adults think rationally, logically, ask questions and use reason to make their decisions.


Really? Yawn...........

" In Thee O Lord do I put my trust " ~ Psalm 31:1~

fun read

Of course I am reminded of the only two suggestions from antiquity that I've ever striven to heed...

"Love thy neighbor as thyself."

"Do not seek the truth. Merely cease to cherish opinion."

Ha ha ha ha ha!

Brilliant post!

Look at how mad everyone got at you, for telling the truth.

I would be interested in your opinion, as you are one with interesting opinions. I know this from experience. However, knowing your opinion is not essential for me. This thread is good enough. In fact, it is even better.

Thank you Smudge Pot. Thank you for your contributions here.


Wish I played that card as well. I saw a 75% drop in my reception for sharing mine. Jussayin.

'Peace is a powerful message.' Ron Paul

I have an opinion summarized in six words for the poster...

Subtly sensational...lazy indifference...mitigating confusion.

Father - Husband - Son - Spirit - Consciousness

It does not matter your opinion.

Alex Jones is a stooge, much like Glenn Beck.

Most of the time, at less critical times, he will say things that his audience expects to hear from him.

Then when the discussion has real meaning and purpose, say in the mainstream, Alex may decide to turn against his base in at least one of three ways.

#1 Alex goes nuts, acts like a lunatic, and demonizes himself and those who have chosen to associate with him.
EXAMPLE: Piers Morgan Interview.

#2 Alex may attempt to throw his victim(s) and / or friends under the bus, while trying to save and/or promote himself.
EXAMPLE: Alex Jones turned on Debra Medina.

#3 Alex ignores the views and wishes of his loyal followers and talks over them, shoving them aside, splitting the argument and causing division only for the sake of creating division and chaos while solely promoting himself.
EXAMPLE: Austin, Texas Second Amendment Protest.

Bottom line... Alex Jones has REPEATEDLY shown and demonstrated a pattern of behavior not in the interest of his followers or his audience, calculated to explode and backfire at just that point in time where he could otherwise capitalize to help those and our true cause to fight the establishment and make real inroads for liberty.

In summary... Alex Jones is a fraud who REPEATEDLY exercises treasonous behavior towards his duped following.



Hostile territory and language. ;)

'Peace is a powerful message.' Ron Paul

I still r3VOL ya, even though I consider

AJ an ally and a canary in the coal mine, as well as his 17yrs of record in the Freedom Movement irrefutably tells anyone paying attention where his heart and intentions are.

It's all info; if it enlightens, informs, inspires, angers, or even merely question the world around you w/ a different POV, it'd have been worth it.

But, if the info, or the messenger of the said info becomes destructive, detrimental, depressing, et al? As the cliche goes, change da channel.

I still have no clue as a paleo-conservative, Constitutionalist, minarchist, AnCap/Voluntaryist/Agorist community of brilliant, creative, analytic, and loving minds, why we so often go off on tangents on various 'personalities' in the movement, sudden barrage of ANTI-AnCaps, atheists overtly criticizing those who find comfort destiny and truths in faith of a larger creator of the universe when they've never forcibly imposed their will nor seek to convert by force, why 'non'-scientific info and messengers are constantly ridiculed, as if the very idea of worshiping modern 'science' automatically makes one more informed or objective, when there has NEVER been a single epoch in human history where science and religion HAVEN'T been biased and political.

I'd like to assume that 99% of DP members still respect the golden rule, or whether some refer to it as the Golden Rule, or the Non-Agression Principle/Axiom.

It's sometimes a wonder how Dr. Paul could unite us all; amazing to watch the entire liberty/freedom alliance falter into incessant bickering (I wouldn't dare proclaim that I've never participated in such low-brow verbal brawls when necessary, but in my defense, I really really try to NOT make DP turn into a typical HuffPost or Raw or YouTube comment section cyclically riding into useless verbal irrelevancy). It's like don't we have enough REAL threats from REAL enemies of freedom from the rest of the sheeple populace and movement liberals/RINOs/neoCons et al??

It's like some idiotic repressed Super ID has been unleashed at DP, post RP2012 cycle. I always thought most of us here were beyond all the BS, but suppose we're all human, and each of us are individually trying to figure out the best way we each know how to move forth with our insatiable ideas and unfulfilled promise of a strictly Constitutional Republic, and for some, beyond.

I'd say for all the critics of AJ, if they can figure out a way to be 100% independent, fund your own operation with growing popularity, give away your DVD's often for FREE, let anyone anywhere and everywhere copy your works, inform millions along the way, be humble enough to admit your overly interruptive interview style, overly boisterous and obnoxiously annoying at times, reluctantly be in the biz because you're 'selfish' knowing that if the whole Ruling Class con has become detrimental to everyone's freedom that even if you wanted to spend most of your time with your wife and kids, you feel the need to fend off a greater perceived threat that can physically harm you and your loved ones & friends in the longrun into an oblivion, that you obsess over fighting 'them' the only way you know how, while attracting various intelligentsia from all political stripes who obviously recognize what you're doing enough to volunteer to be a guest on your said 'tin foilhat show,' that even though you intellectually 'get' that you should be more zen about it all for your own heart's sakes as well as be more inviting to new listeners who haven't taken the 'Red Pill' yet, you know your self-professed "overly-read redneck ass" simply can't let go and often wish you were a better communicator, yet people who can see the forest beyond the trees can accept and often admire the entire package because they see the need for a BullDog type personality to 'shock the system' and knowing that everyone has a role to play, however different or controversial, then you have your answer.

In short, I read your 1st and last profanity laced revulsion to AJ and those defending him post Piers MORON brouhaha, yet after having read most of your previous threads, even though I personally disagreed with your assessment and believed you were making too big a deal about the 'survivability' of our movement with the likes of AJ being attached to it, it never really bothered me, nor did I ever take it personally: I know where your heart and concerns lay, and possibly originated from.

The way I see it, the moron sheeple populace and the Ruling Class acquiescent MSM don't matter, in fact, they've NEVER mattered. In fact, THAT, is their biggest con.

There's a reason why 99% of the Ruling Class' efforts, time, and 'money' are wasted on brainwashing the populace with propaganda: they're a few, we are many. They have to convince us to police ourselves and each other. Simple divide and conquer, with massively delusional psychological hyper-en masse hypnosis away from reality. To try to seem reasonable to tyrants and their acquiescent whores is a uselessly fruitless one. Though, that is not to say that one shouldn't try to convince others along the way. But, the way I see it, if the audience is tone deaf, move on; there are billions of others who may listen to you or remember what you said along the way. Do the 'drive-by Red-Pillin' lol.

They called RP all kinds of names, threw 24/7 smears his way. But he is who he is, and AJ is who he is. There's a reason why RP has been coming on AJ's show for over 14yrs almost once every month, like clockwork even though he doesn't share all his views (then again who agrees 100% with anyone?) he clearly saw the value in the venue, and AJ's alternative assessment of the world.

Everyone has their own way of fighting for what they believe in. Sure, it'd be more powerful if our focus were on a few strong things, but can't stop others from doing what they individually feel are inspired to pursue most vociferously. But we've all come this far, despite all the disparate paths to the same overall larger goal to be free, no?

And, if the fundamental notion of what human freedoms mean can be negated by utterly brainwashed and braindead simpleton vox populi zeitgeist, perhaps that 'idea' was never that strong, deep, or fundamental, to begin with, IMO.

So frankly, I was never concerned personally, because somewhere down the line, it matters not that people forget or don't care who or what AJ did or say, but when the history aligns and an American sings "1776 will commence again, if you try to take our firearms!" it'll hit them like a ton of bricks, what the veracity of that statement has always been about.

Would it be too cheesy to cite a horrible line from even a more horrible film, by an okayish actor?

"Don't hate the player, Hate the Game."

It still comes down to separating the message from the messenger.

Just glad you've changed your mind to stay, P. Nicholson.o)

I never left...

I was just pissed as hell. Thank you for the kind words.

That was the final nail for me when it came to AJ.

I could never leave this place. Its the only site I can come too and feel like Im home. In over 5 1/2 yrs thats the only blow up Ive had. Not trying to sound high and mighty but I was correct. The left had a field day on AJ. He was the poster boy for them. The only people that supported him were the people who knew who he was. Otherwise, if you didnt know who he was, he came off like a screaming lunatic.

Luckily this is the DailyPaul and not DailyJones... I fear the DailyJones would be handing out Koolaid.

God damn it another one of those scam make money quick

So where is the website and the PayPal so I can pay to hear what the opinion is?

What's the website.

Come on. I gotta know I will pay anything.


Opinion is not truth just perspective. Exercise your natural right to free thought and expression. Contrary or not it is all important for the advancement of liberty.



When a true genius appears in the world, you may know him by this sign: that the dunces are all in confederacy against him. ~J. Swift

Funny thing about Libertarians and opinions.

Libertarians, while on one hand professing belief in laissez faire economics and objectivism, often believe that if they have an opinion that it has value.

I'm here to tell you it does not. One's OPINION is irrelevant in light of the facts and evidence. ITS IRRELEVANT. Muse on that again. YOUR OPINION IS IRRELEVANT (as is mine and everyone elses.)

This is where many Libertarians become super-hypocrites. They believe that if their opinion occurs to them its "just as valid" as anyone else's. I assure you IT IS NOT.

A "more valid" opinion might be a profitable one, i.e. one people freely support with time and/or money without coercion.

The objective truth always beats out everyone's opinion in terms of value.

Many DPers come up with what they thing are "great ideas" particularly those "we should do". Well if the idea were that great then FREEKING DO IT YOURSELF! Or ask others to participate. If it were REALLY that good, someone would try to profit from it.

No, opinions are not equally valid at all. Let this sink in. You will never be able to see the truth without it. You will never be able to cease your hypocracy without it: YOUR OPINION IS IRRELEVANT.


Your opinion is irrelevant.

So why did you type it out?

You confuse

apples and oranges.

Opinions often reflect ideas. Political ideas are often based on economic ideas. The scope is usualy on a macro scale and cannot produce individual profit if not implemented as such. Libertarian profit is individual liberty (micro) within large number of people (macro.)


Was the idea of the iPod or iPad not profitable? That idea person's opinion was better than other crappier opinions. I accounted for that in what I wrote.

As I said, if an opinion is a good one it is measured by PROFIT.

Was Adam Smith's opinion about laissez faire economics not profitable? It created the greatest prosperity in the history of the world!

Again, your opinion is IRRELEVANT. This is a statement of fact not opinion.

If your opinion was that great, then you or someone else would do it THEMSELVES and/or PROFIT from it.

All of the "we should"s are as good as used toilet paper. As I said if it were that great of an idea the person expressing it or someone else would take it and do it, not post "we should", an utter waste of bandwidth.

It's a sad commentary

when supposed libertarians vote down my reply which asserts in summary that good ideas are profitable ones.

Indeed smudge pot.

Or in the vulgar. Opinion are like assholes everyone has one.

Some think it's rude to jam it in another's face.

I am not on anyone's side as no one is entirely on my side.

My friends smudge, I leave free.

Did I catch your drift?

Free includes debt-free!

Yeah, and I have a strong,

Yeah, and I have a strong, absolute, and definite opinion about the oxford comma.

Doesn't matter much about my opinion now does it?

Yeah, I don't care

Kindergarten arguments can run amuck in this place.

It's not like we all have to pledge allegiance to the guy, you know? I like some of what he does, other stuff is totally annoying. BIG DEAL if my opinions fluctuate based on his performance, as I see it.
