This place went from liberty and freedom to aliens, conspiracy, haarp, etc....

Go to abovetopsecret, beforeitsnews, etc....for all that.

Also, if its on info wars, it may not be gospel....

All I remember is we all

All I remember is we all stopped attacking Rand.... but the otherside never stopped attacking us. Group think at work. I was a delegate for Missouri and there are alot more AJ followers that helped carry us through that campaign than you could even imagine.

.

Thank You for conveying your point.
Many here would agree with you, and not tell you to go somewhere else.

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

The job of the Daily Paul is not to tell you what to think

The job of the Daily Paul is to make you think.

Conspiracies? Who is to decide for you? Don't want to read about the things you mentioned? Go to CNN. Go to CNBC. Go to Fox News. You won't be exposed to any such ideas. They will tell you what to think.

Not all "conspiracies" are true. Further, not everything you read - on the Daily Paul or elsewhere - is true.

"Coke is It."
"I'm lovin' it"
"Best burger in Boston"
"#1 toilet bowl cleaner in America."
"The hands down best investment opportunity of your lifetime!"

How are you going to tell the difference?

What kinds of critical thinking skills do you need to navigate the world.

"Liberty" begins with individual liberty. In other words, it begins with you. In a free society, the one looking out for you ... is you.

He's the man.

If I want to discuss

If I want to discuss conspiracies, I got to conspiracy websites. If I want to read about ans discuss liberty, I go here and others.

i get what you are saying

You want some material here that suits your taste
GREAT,create it,then post it here
deacon

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

You realize that Nystrom owns this house, dontcha?

If you go to the market, do you purchase every available item because it is there?

Do you drink yourself into a stupor and piss yourself daily because you can not say "No" ?

If there are discussions which are of no interest to you, don't click. You claim to represent a desire for freedom (else why would one be here?) but don't wish for the ugly responsibilty that Freedom requires?

If I want to see what other

If I want to see what other liberty minded people are talking about. I come here... i dont come and complain that this website doesnt produce what I want...If I ran this place I would have Rothbard on every article and be pushing Anarchy from post to post

CNN, CNBC and Fox...

don't talk about ending the Fed. Don't talk about bringing the troops home. Don't talk about ending the disastrous drone war. Don't talk about ending the disastrous drug war (although a little more lately). Don't talk about making the hard choices to reduce the size of government and stop letting Uncle Sam take money out of our pockets.

The DP did all of this and more in the last year that I frequented this site. Chemtrails and 9/11 conspiracies were moved to Off Topic and people here talked about actual things we could actually do to actually accomplish something.

Let's suppose the Sandy Hook conspiracy is true. Here is the result: News breaks; most people don't believe it. Or...news breaks, people are outraged, some go to jail, puppet masters put replacements in their place, life goes on, history books say these few people were evil...end of story.

Anyway, the wealth of amazing posts that used to frequent this site has vanished. It is too aggravating to wade through the muck to find the gems. I'm sorry, Michael; I know I am far from alone in this feeling. Thank you for all you have done to make this site a reality; it changed my life, and I am sure the lives of many others. After the election, though, it is no longer a place I want to frequent.

With liberty and justice for all...who can afford it.

We are the same people.

At least I am. I have fought to end the Fed and elect Ron Paul and expose the truth about 9-11 and Sandy Hook. You don't like that I hang out here? That is sad, I am glad you are here. I hope you will finally dig into some of this stuff and realize why people like me are the majority on this site.
The reason Sandy Hook matters is the same as everything else, because if we do not nip at their lying ass every time they step out of line, they will just double the march to tyranny. If you do not understand the link between truth and liberty, let me give you a hint: Justice.... you take it from there.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

I respect you fishy and think you are a good person

But the path you are on is not for me, nor does it benefit me to read this information. I won't go into any lengthy details, but will briefly say that I prefer to act locally and believe things that fit in with patterns I have observed in the real world. I do not think Sandy Hook could ever be effectively carried out by the same government that has proved its incompetence time and time again. I certainly accept the possibility that I am wrong, and welcome your fight to uncover truth wherever it is being potentially blanketed with lies.

As I said before, the things that the DP taught me and the subsequent activism it inspired is just no longer present here. I've come back a few times to see if things have changed and they haven't enough for me to want to stick around. Regardless, we both have the same high-level goals, and hopefully addressing them from multiple angles will help us achieve them. Take care!

With liberty and justice for all...who can afford it.

Politics withdrawal, stick it out.

It will drift back to politics when races are being run, and drift back to wherever it drifts in between races.
Tell me, have you ever researched the Franklin Scandal? It does you untold good to understand the nature of your enemy. If I overestimate them, I may suffer unneeded stress. If I underestimate them...
Don't underestimate them. They are capable of anything.

It's "hear, hear!". :p

A Ron Paul supporter called me "schizophrenic" once

for entertaining any of these "conspiracies." For the record, I will entertain any idea. I will read anything, and peek under any rock. For this, I was called "schizophrenic." How could I support Ron Paul (this was in the interregnum between 2008 and 2012) but consider any of this stuff?

The accusation made no sense to me. The traditional arbiters of news all have an agenda. In the era when the flows of information have been freed, who makes the decisions for you?

After further thought, it occurred to me that I've grown up in, and we all currently live in, a schizophrenic era. The news shows horrible, terrible tragedies. People being murdered, bombs being dropped, etc. and then they break -- "for a word from our sponsor."

How can you have more shiny, bouncy hair? Hair that will turn heads and make people scream? Blah blah blah blah blah And on and on for a few minutes. And now we return to unspeakable tragedies that are "happening." No cause. They're just "happening."

Of course it is schizophrenic. The only way to not see it as schizophrenic is to view it all as entertainment, which is in effect, the direction that media has been going at least since I was born.

And so the people bowed and prayed
To the neon God they made
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening

Simon & Garfunkel wrote that in the mid 1960's. The "neon God" is television. Has anything changed? The trend has only gotten more pronounced with the internet, and Facebook.

He's the man.

Celebrate your Schizophrenia!

Well Michael, that RP supporter who called you 'schizophrenic' was actually in some sense right without most probably knowing why as of course the word 'schizophrenia' means 'splitted or divided mind'. If one takes this in a positive sense of the meaning of the word and not in its common negative sense, you are definitely schizophrenic as already your previous motto from Fitzgerald concerning the ability to keep in your mind opposite ideas at the same time and still be able to function needs capability of dividing or splitting one's mind. That kind of capability is pretty schizo to most of the people who Merleau-Ponty called "the serious people". Of this he wrote: "The serious man, if he exists, is the man of one thing only, to which he assents."

Even in RP supporters there is plenty of serious people. Free mind is freedom to play with completely crazy ideas and also ability to split one's mind into different possibilities.

Amen to all the Schizos of the world!

And by the way Thomas Szasz thinks that the whole medical label of schizophrenia is a myth.

Maybe schizophrenia is true sanity in this World of Sean Hannity.

Amen and thank you

Here's to the schizos of the world. (I actually knew that definition of schizophrenia, because my wife is a neuroscientist).

I definitely know about the "serious people" of which you speak. I've always found them to be incredible bores. One sided, one dimensional, one track, Johnny One Notes.

So another toast, to the schizos!

He's the man.

Cheers, from me, myself and I.

Why settle for two? lol!
A neuroscientist? Got yourself a real bimbo, eh? Thank her for sharing you with us. She's smart enough to know what you're up too...

Thanks Michael for the song which I had never heard of. Great song!

You forgot the most important part of your reply! You did not

tell me how to have shiny, bouncy hair!

Thanks, Nystrom. You're pretty smart for a boy.

Ha ha ha - for a boy!

Don't you know I'm a man? A M.A.N. (those are my initials). My dad did that on purpose. He said he considered naming me Marvin.

I often wonder, would I be a different person if I were named Marvin?

He's the man.

You would!

You'd be this guy, and he's dead so thank goodness your dad went with Michael!

Just open the box and see

Daily Paul rocks!

Yes we live in crazy times.
Black is called white... war is called peace and war makers receive Nobel Peace Prizes...

In all of this DP is an oasis of free thinking unchaining search for the fullness of truth in all matters.
