Daily Paul friends...

I would like to suggest to any daily users of the DailyPaul.

Become a paid member. The Liberty movement owes a lot to this website!

Very happy to be a paid subscriber.

This is the one thing that I do that I am sure makes a difference.

Without the Daily Paul where would we go?

Lord Acton, Lord Chief Justice of England, 1875 - "The issue which has swept down the centuries and which will have to be fought sooner or later is the People v. The Banks."

We Gave

over 600.00 to Ron Paul. We were employed at the time. Now we are moving out of state and don't have jobs, but I am sending 20.00 for now. As soon as we get set up I will become a paying member. I have hesitated because I don't like using money online. I don't have credit cards or bank accounts anymore so it makes it difficult.

skippy

Do it!

I do!

I am a subscriber

I pay monthly...my husband is unemployed. I have never had a job (weird, am I, but that's how I fly) so we are now without income. BUT I am still a monthly subscriber. $10. It's worth it. It's easier to paypal a subscription than to sweat it each time the donation thread comes around.

Even

if someone doesn't become a paid subscriber, they should at least consider a donation to keep this resource up and running.

Times are tough for everyone (including me), and the agenda of the tyrants is beginning to accelerate. This is all the more reason to maintain a place where we can learn, share, and communicate vital information so that we can best prepare for the challenges ahead.
I have gotten to know the owner of this website over the last couple of years, and I believe he is a responsible and honest person. He lives within his means, and I believe uses his money wisely. He's not driving a brand new car, or wearing the latest fashions.
(far from it) He's getting by with what he has.

You wouldn't work for free 40+ hours a week for years on end. Why would you expect someone else to?

Maintaining a website costs money.

To use one of Michael's analogies:
Some people on the user end of a website look at it like a water faucet. They think all they have to do is turn the knob and the water will always be there. They don't think of the miles of plumbing, the drainage ditches, treatment plants, and other people and infrastructure involved in helping that "water" get to the faucet.

It's time to pay the water bill folks. The owner hates to even have to ask for it, so I'm going to be the one who calls for it.

Do you want to see a thread with the headline
"DP shutting down for good?"

I don't.

There is not another website that I know of that gives more freedom of expression, leniency on subject matter, and the ability to customize the content to your specific taste.

If this place has taught you one thing, or made a change in your perspective that has positively impacted your life, then I ask that you please give something back. The time is now. Even if it's 5 or 10 bucks. Many hands make light work.

Jefferson, you're a good man, and a good friend.

The sad part is that we're all so far flung all over the country. Wouldn't it be great to have, rather than this virtual living room, a real living room with everyone sitting around talking on couches and pillows, people popping in and out, wandering through all the different rooms of the Daily Paul, checking in on all the different conversations going on.

That would be great.

Maybe one day we'll have a 'second life' - a virtual DP. Who knows what the future holds.

To be mean is never excusable, but there is some merit in knowing that one is; the most irreparable of vices is to do evil out of stupidity. - C.B.

that might be the perfect place

there is something for everyone there and not a lot of regulation.

anytime you need a rep firm to sell display ads in the South...

I'm all ears.

The Red Coats are coming!

It would.

That's why I invite everyone to move to Austin. We have a place here called "Brave New Books" which is similar to what you describe. I think Jordan Page played there a few days ago. Or maybe we could crash GB's new liberty town he's trying to create. I don't know much about it.

Until then, I'm thankful for what we have now. I hope we can keep it. Thank you for all you (and all the others behind the scenes) have done. It's truly is a special place.
Good night.
