Let us think about the web site called Daily Paul

I don't know if I have ever come across another site like this. Think about it.....

It's unique, no other site has attracted such a diverse group of thinking and non thinking minds to cover some of the most important taboos of the modern day.

Discussions on liberty, freedom, and self preservation. But there is more, we discuss religion, sex, violence, choice, survival, farming, health, comedy, personal struggles and much more. It's like thousands of Abby's responding to a dear Abby letter.

But the best part is no matter what is posted, what is deemed unacceptable, who comments and who doesn't or whether its front page or not....it's a a free exchange of ideas and thoughts unregulated ( for the most part) .

You can park here all day or drop in between breaks at work or just visit now and then. You can add two cents or not (literally and figuratively).

It is a great example of freedom and free will.....and everything you see here is something that occurred in one beings mind or soul and has been document and translated via electronic means to this forum where another being interprets it and absorbs it into their mind or soul which causes a reaction. Perhaps precipitates an action on their part....

Sweet site and is one of kind....

Don't comment so much anymore ... but still come at least 2 or3 times a day. You guys were my rabbit hole and I will never ever be the same. I am busy building a farm to ready myself for the zombie apocalypse ... I hope you all decide to get on board with Rand sooner rather then later ... but I will wait it out if I must.

I fully agree that the DailyPaul is THE best website out there for liberty, information, fellowship with like-minded people and fore-warnings of possible dangerous times to prepare for.


"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

The DailyPaul was my gateway

The DailyPaul was my gateway drug. It opened the doors to so many different topics, philosophies, and ideas, that I wasn't accustomed to hearing.

I was simply oblivious to everything, just preoccupied with going through the motions of life. Going to school, watching my TV shows, taking MSM's word on everything. Since joining this community about a year ago I've learned how to think more rationally and become more tolerate of other peoples ideas and beliefs.

As humans what we don't understand we automatically portray as evil or bad. But I am no longer afraid of the unknown, I have become the unknown In societies eyes. I am no longer a vibrant sheep among the herd. I am a black sheep of society, and i'm okay with that. Soon enough liberty will be the norm. Thank-you DailyPaul!!

I second your post..

Long live the DP.


I try to change people every day. Do You?

great thread!

I live on the DP. Its the first site I check in the morning and I always try to post relevant topics and links.

The DP is by far, the coolest community I have found on the internet. Some people may find us extreme but its home to me. If anything is happening in the world, the DP is my first stop. We are usually on top of any important legislation or news.

Its also super cool that the DP literally goes off its rocker when say.. Rand filibusters... or Piers trys to take on Larry Pratt... or any threat to our liberties is under fire.

Ron Paul may be out of politics, but long live the DailyPaul!!!!!!

My favorite attributes

My favorite attributes of DP include:

- People are friendly and, for the most part, don't call people names, act rudely, ad hominem and try to shut down discussions. Go visit the boards at Reason.com or Alternet.org to see counter examples (legalizeliberty could curb her name-calling a bit in anarcho threads, and the bitcoiners might choose to not keep calling us all ignorant. Please/thanks.)

- People are generally humble and curious and actually WANT new information, not just spout their perspective and try to shut it down.

- People are already studied and down the path. It's not like you have explain fiat currency or other complex subjects just to even get started.

- There's still a LOT of diversity of opinion here. It's a nice blend of being heterogenous enough to have deeper discussion, but diverse enough to hear something new. If everybody is too similar than nobody has much to say. I see this on the freedomainradio.com boards sometimes - it's like the conversation has already been had before you even start.

- And, it beats working my day job.

I look at the news and all
then I go to Daily Paul
the lies and deceptions of the day
dissipate and go away
so Daily Paul, many thanks
you shed light on MSM pranks

it's good to type in

it's good to type in something positive for the aliens observing the dialogue on this planet. so much evil is happening on the planet, while the dailypaul is mostly saying beautiful things.

but now i prefer to just troll everyone instead.


Thank you Daily Paul

Thank you for this amazing awesome community!

kind people rock

I love you

Carol, let's make a quick stop at the Daily Paul. Fresh cookies.

Made chocolate chip. I hope they like them.

From: Carol Paul ~
I received this recipe from my house mother in college and made these to send to Ron at his college. They are still his favorite. Now his daughters and granddaughters make them for him.
Cream: 1 cup Crisco; 1 cup granulated sugar; 1 cup brown sugar; 2 eggs; 1 tsp. vanilla (It is important to put the vanilla in now.)

Dissolve: 1 tsp. baking soda in 1 tbsp. hot water and mix alternately with:

2 1/4 cups flour; 1 tsp. salt; 1 cup chopped nuts; 1 large bag chocolate chips

Drop by teaspoon on cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.

Our conversations are so "unique" that we attract

paid disinfo agents, who join the conversation to confuse and deflect our attention. Doesn't usually work! ;)

Good to hear from one of my favorite posters

I like seeing you here E. your definitely on my team!

Loved your post!

Not always like this

My account has been canceled before for Posting about Chemtrails...

"Michael and the Mods" (great band name I think...)

"....of thinking and non-thinking minds..." hehehehehe! Cracked me up Dex :)

"it's a a free exchange of ideas and thoughts unregulated ( for the most part)." I would call it "Well Regulated", just like how "regulated" meant at the time the word was used in the Constitution, which was "to keep regular". "To regulate inter-state commerce" meant the FEDGOV was supposed to do nothing to impede inter-state commerce and keep it always moving and flowing, not redifine the word to mean FEDGOV can restrict.

That's how I see DP. Occasionally some crap appears and "Michael and the Mods" (great band name I think...) gotta drop the hammer, but that's very rare.

I been on here like 5 and a half years I think. I can't make an original post that gets lots of readers to save my life, and I do much better in replies to existing threads, but I keep coming back everyday. The DP is my primary source of information for knowing what's going on in the freedom/liberty movement.

"Michael and the Mods". Dude! Michael! You guys gotta start a band man... That just sounds cool, lol!

Michael and the Mods

Sounds WAY better than "Josie and the Pussycats"!


LOL, for comdraderie, it's not that unique, actually.

There are all kinds of forums out there that function the same way-- regardless of the topic that brought everyone together (raw food, losing a loved one, sailing, Lego fanhood) you are likely to find a personal element, and people becoming friends and talking about a whole range of topics (hmm...maybe not so much on the Lego forum.)

It's just that the Daily Paul people spend SO much time here, we might forget that. :)

Thank you, Michael and DP community for Daily Blessings.

Cheers. ;-)

When I'm surfing

and find a great thought/story. I always thinks somebody @DP will beat me to post it. If it's important it's on DP!!!

Thank you DP

This is my main source of news. I learn so much from the opinions here.

Thank you everyone, really.



This is my first stop for news, too. If I hear something that gets my spidey senses tingling, I generally find a pretty good critique of it already written here. I would say DP's my gold standard from which I compare all other news sources too.
Thanks everyone.

I second this

Everyone in my family, minus 2 cousins and my wife, will check out of the conversation as soon as you bring up politics. It's pathetic even though they all know I served honorably in the US Army.

People use to see me in uniform and stop to thank me for serving. I would simply say "thanks for your support," even though I would want to say something along the lines of, "If you support the troops, then get involved so we don't have to fight these meaningless wars."

Seriously, DP and Nystrom and anyone who helped bring this website to fruition: thank you for YOUR service of questioning your "elected" leadership.

Hey, Myke,Yeah, people check

Hey, Myke,

Yeah, people check out of conversations when politics comes up. Sad and, especially, frustrating. If they would just understand politics is control, we'd make a lot of progress in restoring our freedom.

I know what you mean about people who thank men and women in the U.S. military. I can tell you that I used to thank those men and women, but I've quit doing that because I believe the military hasn't defended the United States in a long time but has offended countries worldwide for a long time. That said, it's not lost on me how Earth spins, how the world works, that those men and women and us civilians are pawns in the "game" life. So, in a paradox, I want the men and women in the military to stay there -- and learn freedom. And I want those people who are one of us, a free man or a free woman, to enter because we all will need them in critical times, when the tough decisions -- the right decisions -- must be made.

I hope those men and woman find each other and support and work with each other, creating their own schemes and strategies to advance through the ranks, to buffer the criticisms their misunderstanding brothers and sisters would heap on them and better than buffering, to turn situations into learning experiences and even epiphanies for those who misunderstand. They'll need each other and without question, they'll have to be thinkers and, though cliche, liked. From being liked, respect comes less difficult.

When possible, I try to get people thinking about your sentiment: If you support the troops, get involved so these wars won't happen. I must say, though, that persuading people that freedom is achieved through defense instead of offense is d-i-f-f-i-c-u-l-t. To be blunt, those people have lost themselves, their humanity. Really, it should be easy to understand maiming and killing offensively is evil. I'm at a loss for words about people who attempt to rationalize their support of evil. Again, sad and, especially, frustrating.

My thanks to DPers, Michael and the moderators for doing their parts to make this website what it is, a bastion of inquiry for and by free people. What a website. I love this place.
