The Daily Paul Needs Your Help. Fundraiser 64% Complete

The Daily Paul turns six years old on January 19th. I registered the domain on on that date, 2007, and the first post went up two days later. After two presidential elections, the DP remains an important online center of the Liberty movement. I loathe asking for money, but it has become critical.

Only shortly after the site became fun again (it wasn't much fun for me during the election season), things have started to break down. Ghosts are haunting the machine. People are having problems voting on posts and comments, and returning comments to certain users. The errors are random and hard to reproduce. Yesterday we were hit again with an erroneous malware alert from Google that suspended traffic and caused ad revenue to plummet. Big Mike said it's like the site has leprosy - everything is falling apart!

Like a car or a house, the website needs maintenance and repair, and I'm asking for your help to do that.

How you can help:

I'd appreicate it if you'd include your username, but that is up to you.

  • Bitcoin:
    Frankly, I don't know how to use Bitcoin very well, but thanks to haze and rpcongress, I'm learning a lot fast. Here is an address you can use to send some bits:
  • 16oZXSGAcDrSbZeBnSu84w5UWwbLtZsBms

    If anything shows up in that wallet, It'll help me in my education. If someone can educate me on how better to receive bits, please post it in the comments below, or use the contact form.

    It is impossible to know what the future holds, but I have a feeling that 2013 is going to be a big year for us, and the 2014 elections are just around the corner.

    Thank you all for your love support of this community. Here is to another 6 years going forward.

    In deepest gratitude and love,

    Michael

    Stop spamming this on multiple threads on the site. And this thread particularly is not for spamming completely unrelated copy/pasted material. Whether he is supported by the movement or not, spam is spam, and the tactic is not welcome anywhere on DP.

    Thanks

    It's easy to support the DP.

    It's easy to support the DP. Everyone add a few lines like I have in your signature file at the bottom of your posts.

    Every time when you or someone else orders anything from Amazon, the Daily Paul will earn a commission.

    I always try to remember, but admittedly, sometimes forget. I bought a $1000 generator a few months ago and was kicking myself that I didn't click through the DP link first so Michael would get a commission...but at least I've hooked him up on other occasions.

    By the way, the best deal going for under $50 is the Ka-Bar Marine fighting Knife over at Amazon. If you want to check it out...click on the DP link I just posted...

    then type in ...

    'KA-BAR Full Size US Marine Corp Fighting Knife, Straight'

    into the search box.

    The Daily Paul may need to be rebuilt

    I remember back in the early days of 911 truth the highly controversial forum Letsroll911 was under constant attack by government hackers. Phil Jayhan was forced to rebuild several times as "ghosts in the machine" undermined the platform. I'd love a feature to download all content I've created before it's lost to a crash. Perhaps a hard site backup every month might be wise. I recommend Dreamhost for a secure protected registrar and host.

    Thanks for this site brother Nystrom. When the New World Order is crushed your contributions to the cause of liberty will be remembered as playing a crucial role. $10 per month is a small price for the ability to stay connected to the best and brightest of the liberty folk. I love all of you. Brace yourselves 'cuz there's a storm brewing on the horizon...

    White House petition

    Should we petition the White House to designate January 19th as national Daily Paul day?

    The founders would be ashamed at us for what we are putting up with.

    For Liberty

    I've glanced over this thread on the front page. I browsed passed it more than once - trying to force myself to organically justify any reason why I couldn't spare anything at the time.

    I couldn't do it any longer - I'm not in great financial shape at the moment but I'm throwing 20$ in the pot. I've used this site every single day for NEWS. I can't imagine how my life would be without it.

    Thank you for everything DP and I hope it's a connection for a lifetime.

    President or not, the Revolution is happening and it grows at the local level.

    You should be on the ballot for your local Republican Central Committee.

    Same here!

    I don't have it but I need this site and the world needs this site! So it was onlu a small amount but to me no amount is small lol

    BTC

    I've got some BTC in a wallet somewhere too now that I think of it - Haven't gotten to pay anything with bitcoins yet so I'm kind of excited. Gives me hope for the future of the currency :)

    Thank you everyone so much.

    Everyone's generosity is really heartwarming. I really can't thank you all enough.

    Tomorrow we're six!

    All art is only done by the individual. The individual is all you ever have, and all schools only serve to classify their members as failures. E.H.

    THANK YOU!!!

    Just as we all worked so hard to say "Thank you" to Ron Paul, I donated to say "Thank you" to you for 6 years of spreading Liberty. Here is to many more years.

    In Liberty,

    Michael, I Love the site! As soon as I get paid Thursday I'm in. Thanks for providing this.

    Thursday - got you down here....

    we should have a form of currency - the word.

    Why I won't contribute

    IMO you don't spend the money you raise wisely. During the election particularly after debates this site was too not there for me because it couldn't handle the traffic. This would not have happened if you had used Squarespace as I had suggested, and the site would have been easier to maintain and more user friendly. Insisting on hosting this thing yourself and on a platform that requires so much maintenance is a waste of resources and is not something I'd put my money behind.

    Maybe he pays his rent

    and buys food with it?

    Can you figure out any other way he can go six months at a time working 12 hrs a day 7 days a week? Why is it so taboo to say "I buy food with some of what you donate - so I don't need to also hold down a second job?"
