Rand supporters should be banned from forums

Despite previously supporting him, I think Rand Paul is a troll at this point.

Anyone else feel the same way?

If we're going to out people....

...might I suggest "AllPaul," who is extremely vulgar (way beyond the f-bomb) on a regular basis, and who is, incidentally, one of most vociferous anti-Rand persons on the site.

If he doesn't contribute anything to the conversation

As in, he just attacks, attacks, attacks without trying to argue points then I'm all for you attempting to get him banned. Although I can't attest to that as I've not seen many of his posts.

O I don't really care, not really trying to get him banned....

...I was just pointing out that there are such people on all sides of the conversation.

Rand wont pander to libs like his dad did someimes.
Rand will tell libs they should seek out hillary, gary or Joe.

You hear rand called many things but never will you hear him called rino!
Libs here hate rand because he hates their views right BACK!

I can see Jesse Ventura making a run of this next election as an indie since Rand is abandoning his fathers views.

this whole movement about individual freedoms? Yes, lets ban everyone who doesn't share the same views....lets shrink the information people are allowed to see on this site to support people you consider appropriate. Some of Rands comments over the last couple of weeks have pissed me off.....but turning your back on the principles of this movement isn't a way to fix that problem.


So you "supported" Rand, which means you actively participated in his efforts. Now... um, I mean at this point... you think he's a troll, which means Rand was deliberately trying to infiltrate and throw you off to waste your energies.

So maybe he is. But anyone of integrity, who actually believed this, would refuse to be trolled any longer and would just move on. You're presenting yourself as troll bait, still fixated on your long lost troll.

It may be that you're struggling with some coming of age stuff. Maybe you're just conflicted by the realization that it's not all black and white and men of good conscious can have differences of opinion without calling the other "enemy" or "troll." Stick with it; you just might exit the world you need and your at-this-point-for-whatever-I'm-feeling-at-the-moment mindset and break on into the world that needs you.

yes lets ban everyone who has

yes lets ban everyone who has a different view thats the way to promote liberty....

How about we ban you?

Sure...he is a tad more neocon than his father.

But he is cut from his father's cloth and your forum here is OFFENSIVE.

I will be blunt here: GO TO HELL.


Norfolk, VA

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

Check out this guys comments

They speak volumes.

I like Rand's views (from what I've read and seen in his speeches and such) more than 95% of all Republican members of Congress and more than 99% of all Democrat members of Congress. I didn't mind Kucinich much.

Nobody is perfect. Let he who is without sin cast the first stone. That certainly isn't me.

Sure, it hurt my feelings when he endorsed Romney, although he is the good doctor's son and I'm sure they spoke about it on end. Father knows best. As a father I know what my son is thinking just by looking at his face.

And I still gave money to Dr. Paul's campaign after (maybe foolish, but hopefully went to good use. Maybe it will help subsidize his upcoming speeches.)

I get Rand's weekly newsletters and it seems he does a lot of local level stuff on a daily basis, maybe for posture, maybe his true feelings, likely a mixture of both. I like reading his weekly stuff almost as much as Dr. Paul's weekly updates.

Unfortunately I think he may run and do many speeches and then Rubio may be nominated and steal part of or all his message. Every NeoCon I know loves Rubio. It seems like Romney did the same with Dr. Paul although I didn't pay too much attention to Romney because he was a patsy. But he did seem to flip flop big time towards the end more towards Ron Paul's message.

No matter what happens I'm not getting my hopes up, but trying not to let this coin of two sides get me down. There is only one coin. One beast, two heads.

In any case we are talking two different Pauls here. I haven't noticed any "Rand Trolls" here. There are a few people with the Rand 2016 sticker thing next to their name and they do say some Pro Rand stuff, but come on.

The only reason I am commenting is to espouse my feelings on Rand.

Someone aught to look in the mirror though. Seriously. And look deep.

If you want to destroy the DP...

...and provide the impetus for the creation of a rival Paulite site, then, by all means, ban the Rand supporters.

P.S. You realize they (we) are in the majority?

Banning Rand Supporters

Banning Rand Paul supporters would be very unPaul-like at the DailyPaul.

Here's What I'd Do

If I had you standing in front of me I'd Slap The Taste Right Outta Your Mouth Boy

"You Cannot Stop An Idea Whose Time Has Come"

Wait and see

Rand Paul's body of work in the senate should dictate our support. Banning his supporters would be a mistake in my opinion, though it would be a mistake to give Rand Paul unconditional support.

Your User Name Says It All

Quite ironic in fact

now thats absurd...

unless you are didecated to defeat! i dont condone everything Rand Paul says/does, in fact I speak loudly against alot of it. But who is better? If Rand Paul was the Republican nominee and GJ was the Libertarian nominee- would you really vote Johnson?

Yep I would.

“If ever a time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.”

No, I Do Not

Why is Rand a troll in your own words? Because he supports Israel if they were attacked? Because he'd support Japan if they were attacked? Because he'd support England if they were attacked?

What's your beef with the West bro?

China, Russia, North Korea...they all need computer literate English speaking people to help right now, so why not join them?

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

Oh brother

I'm keeping an open mind towards Rand. I'm not Rah-Rah-Rand, but I'm not going to bash the hell out of him, either. I'm going to observe. As Yogi Berra said, you can observe a lot, just by watching. Or something like that.

And by the way, by what method do you propose they be banned, and for what reason? Because they have a different opinion than yours?

How about I ban you instead? Would you like that? No? Ok, then how about you quit calling for blanket bans of others. How about try a little tolerance instead.

For real?

Yes, let's ban them. And we should get rid of any left over Gary Johnson supporters. Of course while we are at it, let's get rid of the anarchists and the conspiracy theorists. The truthers, the birthers, and the Sandy Hookers should all go. Anyone over the age of 61 years old 8 months and 4 days should be sent packing along with anyone under the age of 23 years 4 months and 12 days. The neocons and the social conservatives might as well take a hike also.

Mod Jon rained on my alien party a week or so ago so lets ban all the mods also, and Michael probably doesn't really need to be here either (no offense Michael).

Wouldn't that be such a fun forum?

Or we could just leave everyone alone and let them do their thing.

It's cool

I was joking. I enjoy everyone here (even the people that have made sure I know they are not so fond of me). This place wouldn't be the DP if it did not have so many different opinions. Live and let live and go do your thing on the threads, it's good.

Oh, and yes... some of us are ex liberals and it will take us a minute to accept the conservative republican thing. We will certainly have to get used to it. I am working on it, I do not claim perfection.


mlk was a registered republican.

I didnt think you were joking!

One of the biggest problems libs have with republicans is the prolife issue. Many think it is an assault against women and their right to choose. I can understand this. BUT. I view it the same as RP. This issue has been used to divide and should not even be on the federal stage. But since it is~ I like his saying:
