What has the Daily Paul done for you?

What has the DP done for me?

More than anything else, it has placed me AHEAD of the power curve on so many levels.

I see the rush to precious metals but I don't hurry. I bought my safe amount years ago. Now, I watch as others pay high premium costs and worry about counterfeit items.

I see how people seek to stockpile ammo and rush to buy guns with both of those items coming at a very high price because they are so scarce now. I smile because I know that mine have tripled in value.

I learned a very long time ago that we needed to prepare.

I watch as people every day "wake up" to government oligarchy, whether it be oppression from the irs, dhs, atf, cia, fbi, your local police FORCE, or whatever. I am not stressed. I have understood how to deal with these alphabet monsters for years.

I listened to sierrahbpt, the oracle, and genghis khan and, guess what? They were right. I benefitted from their knowledge.

Do you want the TRUTH? Do you want to wake up to the reality of never-ending wars (terror, drug, poverty)? Do you want to think for yourself? Then, keep coming here.

What has the DP done for you?

There is nothing strange about having a bar of soap in your right pocket, it's just what's happening.

It's A Place

where I can talk to people that understand most of what I am talking about. I get a little bent sometimes on certain subjects but don't we all?

skippy

The thoughts and opinions,

The thoughts and opinions, the agreements and disagreements, the history and education, the ideas and facts.... of the liberty community, putting it simply, helped my mind understand my heart, fiiinaly, little fella's been screaming for attention the whole time

if nothing else, i thank the community for helping me understand me a little better, and i hope i have many more things to learn, and the chance and ability to learn them, till the day i say goodbye to this thing we call life

Hope is what dreams are made of, tyranny cannot destroy hope, without destroying itself just to be sure
there is no more hope, you cannot destroy an idea, you cannot destroy something you cannot touch, in attempting to do so, you show your real face, instead of the facade, and fuel the fires of hope and liberty in the process

they are their own worse enemy in this regard, either to ignorant to see it, or too arogant to care

sorry, kinda went of topic there at the end

the mind thinks what the heart feels, it also likes to wander :)

It has provided "fellowship."

That is a rare commodity these days.
Another awesome post this morning!
I want to second your tip of the hat to Sierra - his lessons on silver re perhaps the most useful information I have found here. We had to sell during this down market, but since the bulk of our investment was made at under $11 we still came out WAY ahead, and what we bought with it was a well.
The well sits on a piece of land I bought after looking into permaculture - a term I learned here. It was someone's username, and they just quietly nagged about it until I finally looked into it. It is a few years down the road, but it is one of the things that profoundly changed my life. It lead me to aquaponics, which I consider the ultimate "preparation."
In the early days, I came here to gather with other supporters. Back then, the media was telling us that we did not exist, we were all just some spambot. It was sort of weird, like "Horton Hears A Who." "We are here! We are here! We are HERE!!!!" As the campaign rolled along, here is where I learned about the delegate strategy. Whatever good may ever come of my political efforts can be traced to that revelation. This became the place where delegates gathered, discussed strategies, where we patted each other on the back for every little stand we took, and those pats were precious back then.
Here is where I learned to thicken my hide, politics is not really a friendly place. I learned what "trolling" is and I learned that even good people troll sometimes, and I learned to accept that not every "troll" was a government spy. You may laugh, but I had enough bizarre experiences in those early days that it became wise to be very suspicious for a while, and it is human nature to over-correct when a mistake is discovered.
But for me, the most valuable thing is not what the DP did for me, it is what the DP users have done for the DP. While there is the occasional post that is totally BS, most of the time people bring the truth here. If BS is presented, the debunking will be in the comments within the hour. When I see a story anywhere that I cannot source or debunk, I know I can post it here and someone will find the facts that elude me. Yes, I will be called names for asking "stupid questions" or making the movement look bad or "believing every conspiracy" but as noted above, I learned to not care about that. I want the truth, this is where I can usually get it. Ask the question, watch the comments.
Unless the post is removed.

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

Great comment, as usual , Fishy.

Especially your last sentence.

I learned about the delegate importance and strategy and how important the phrase, "all politics are local". How important it is to get involved with what is going on in your town and county. It does make a difference and it has an effect on your Representative in congress.
