How has the Daily Paul touched you?Submitted by Daily Rube on Sun, 04/28/2013 - 23:21
Since the last election, I have noticed a couple of threads and comments by The Daily Paul's Founder Michael Nystrom about him tiring of the site, it's maintenance, and questioning his future involvement. Although I have expressed little empathy for much of this reasoning, as seen here:
I also want to ensure I express some encouragement for how the site has impacted me. To share some of the positives and how much fun this site can be.
I found this site when googling Ron Paul in 2007. Ron Paul was a refreshing voice of reason in the debates, and his spat with Rudy... And telling Mitt to read the constitution... Magical. I lurked in the background that election, didn't get off my butt to caucus, and just read the DP without an account.
2011 was different. I came onto the DP and contributed in the conversation. I came here for non biased news you couldn't find on MSNBC nor Fox. I needed a place to vent and to be with like minded peers of liberty. Being blacked out by the media and by the establishment was so frustrating and infuriating.
My favorite moments though we're watching DP members live blog the revolution in real time here on the DailyPaul. We had live streams of conventions. We had video of rally's in parking lots. We had private investigators expose Charlie the cheater! :)
I caucused for the first time in 2012... Helping RP sweep Minnesota. I donated to money bombs. I saw RP when he was in town. I did so because of the Daily Paul community and the energy it provided me.
Oh, and by far the coolest moment for liberty in 2012... I discovered by knowing people in this forum: (see video)
