Does it matter if you're right when you're hurting our movment.

Are more people seeing your posts about 9/11 and Sandy Hook, or are more people seeing stories like this.

It doesn't matter if I'm on board with your conspiracies or not. What matters is that a larger public is seeing a yahoo story about conspiracy theorists harrassing people in Newtown, than are seeing your posts about your "evidence" you found from some no-name youtube blogger.
I'm not going to debate whether you are right about the conspiracies or not. You being right about something which the public will never believe will not further the cause of liberty. All it has done has given the media, who has more reach than you, ammunition with which to bash people like Ron Paul.
I'm not concerned that you are right or not. I'm concerned that you are hurting our movement.

I don't abide by your judgements.

It's not your job.

If you don't like a movement move on. That's what liberty is about.

Browbeating is an option but will earn down votes.

Don't tell me I am ignorant. Show me why you believe in my ignorance.

James 1:20

"For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God."

Are they really "angry", patriots?, or are they showmen?

God himself took the name "I

God himself took the name "I shall prove to be who I shall prove to be."

Can any man pretend more. Time will tell if they fulfill their promise.

I can't judge without doubt.

A contingent of RPers from Monroe came to Ann Arbor in 2008. It's when I met Adam D'angelo. Private club off of second Street. Did we meet?

The truth

is always best.

Truth?

Conpiracy theories aren't "truth". They are theories. We get so caught up in our anger at the government, we lower our standard for truth and we believe anything that makes the government look bad, even if the evidence is flimsy.

Free market capitalism isn't right for America because it works better. It's right because it's free (and it works better).

The truth uncovered.

Not all digging is fruitful.

Innocents have nothing to fear from the truth.

Governments have killed 200 million this decade.

The US is not immune.

Lincoln killed about 850,000 and bankrupted the Union he created.

Free includes debt-free!

I noticed something weird...another conspiracy theory ....

I noticed the past couple of days when Sandy Hook starts showing up on the most viewed posts, a plethora of "anti-Sandy Hook" posts show up from posters I'm not familiar with.
As of now, there are two new posts in a row.

Conspiracy, or just coincidence? I'll start a running list...starting right now.

Spot on, Ralph. Look at the most recent comments from

the post I put up yesterday. All of a sudden all the people I have never noticed posting before come in with the anti Sandy Hook hoax comments.

couple of things

1. you don't know if something is hurting or hindering 'our movement' - Alex Jones now has 3 times the listeners he had a week ago.
2. Stop trying to second guess what other people want to hear and just post what you think. Truth is always the best bet.

Us?

Get over yourself.

Yes.

Yes, us, all the people here who are here because we support Ron Paul and we want liberty for our country. I don't think I was going to far out to include all of "us" in that. I am at the dailyPAUL right? So I think it's safe to assume that the conspiracy theorists I'm talking about are part of "us".

Free market capitalism isn't right for America because it works better. It's right because it's free (and it works better).

Uh .....

Ron Paul isn't running for any office.

and?

You are at the dailypaul for some other reason than your initial support of Ron Paul? I don't get what your issue is. I think you just don't like that I don't buy into this Sandy Hook thing, so you are looking for somethign I said that makes me look bad, so you want "us" to not mean anything, even though it's pretty obvious that "us" includes all the people who come to this site for a pretty common purpose, to further liberty. Just because we don't agree on the conspiracies doesn't mean we aren't "us". Now, lets stop complaining about "us" and tell me why you think all this harrassing of the Sandy Hook people is helping us, then we will actually be debating what I posted, rather than nothing at all. PS I changed "us" for you.

Free market capitalism isn't right for America because it works better. It's right because it's free (and it works better).

Please

Give us the guidelines for furthering liberty.

When did asking questions become harrassment?
