Anywhere else, Daily Paul headlines would make people's eyeballs explode

These headlines should be enough for people to totally stop listening to any member of any branch of government, anywhere. I feel like if these headlines were scrolling across CNN or MSNBC, Joe Sixpack and friends would literally turn inside out.

I mean, what about this?

How many mainstream concepts does that just totally demolish? First, that the CIA has average Americans interests in mind, that the rebels in Syria are the good guys, that only Assad is using poison gas, etc.

How about this one? This is totally crazy.

The free sample lady "brandishing" scissors gets iced by the cops? What country do we live in again?

Is biometric ID just a conspiracy theory bandied about by loonies? No way!

They're not theories if they're actually happening right now.

How about some more police state action?

I mean, this stuff is TOTALLY outrageous. Anyone who looks at that, nods, and clicks over to the next article has been reading this stuff for too long. This news is not OK! It's not ordinary! There is something seriously wrong with our government.

I've been reading DP for about eight months or so, but like anything else you build up a tolerance to INSANE news. It's when you take a step back and think "Holy crap, this is really all happening right now to real people in MY country." that you realize just how important this site is to maintaining some sense of what's really happening. Yeah, there's a lot of garbage on here, but there is the occasional nugget of solid gold.

It's amazing what the 200-300 or so regular posters on here can accomplish in combing the world for the real stories while MSMNBC churns out the gay marriage/celebrity opinion diversions.

Keep up the good work, folks.

Absolutely True

We here are not shocked at some of the headlines and think-sure, of course
It would not surprise anyone here if a headline screamed "your deposits are not safe in your bank-remember Cypus"

What is amazing is that basically was a major "headline" in the Federal Advisory Council to the Federal Reserve recently

Whether this gets picked up on Monday I don't know but this is big news

That's Funny

I was thinking exactly the same thing the day. I had been watching FBC for a couple weeks and logged onto DP. I started reading the first 5 or 6 posts and had to start laughing as I realized that 70-80% of people who watch the news wouldn't know what to think if they read even half of it....Then I got sad

the problem is most of the headlines are utter bullshyt that either misrepresent the linked content or link to an anonymous source that provides no evidence for its claims and is usually an obvious hack attempting to garner attention with sensational, false claims.

Yea, I agree here, many of them are like this, but there are just as many that are not.

who else gets the shakes if they don't get their Daily Fix, I love this site ;)

I made some lady's eyballs explode

when I was circulating a petition for a pro-life libertarian to run for mayor, and I had a pro-life sticker on and said, "you know, we really want to defend the right to have an open carry rally again in this public park; the city has created an unConstitutional law against us having another march". I was denounced as not being Catholic or pro-life by this false "Catholic" progressivist feminist who erroneously believed that guns kill people, rather than people using guns killing people.

... you gotta let some bad news go and let some joy in :)
... otherwise the heavy weight of truth can crush your spirit.

nah...

Wait until the midterm elections heat up. It will be back to normal. People can whine and bitch about Rand all they want. The truth is he is our best candidate. Whether people care to believe it or not. Rand is not his dad, nor should he be.

He has remained steadfast on the issues that matter most to our movement. He plays politics and God bless em for it. The last thing we need is another Ron Paul that is so hardline that he can barely muster support on the Hill.

I've been lurking lately. The conspiracy shit drives me fucking nuts. While the DP is an awesome outlet for activism and truth.. it also harbors some flat out stupid conspiracy crap. It has proven to be counterproductive in my experience.

I still love this place.. just irritating as crabs on prom night at times.

'Peace is a powerful message.' Ron Paul

I don't want to hear sugar

I don't want to hear sugar coated government cheer leading MSM news anymore. I'm addicted to reality DP news now.

The DailyPaul is without doubt THE BEST SITE on the web.

We owe Michael a great debt of gratitude for creating this site.

The DailyPaul is where TRUTH resides.

Now and again there are idiots or imposters posting on here but unlike the corrupt Huffington Post, the Daily Paul is about the freedom to let everyone say their piece.

But most everything that makes the front page is very worthy of reading and absorbing.

So send Michael a little something once in a while to thank him for keeping the ideals and philosophies of Ron Paul and that movement alive and well.

Congressman/Dr. Paul is the finest person to inhabit the U.S. Congress (or any branch of government for that matter) since the founders in my opinion.

"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 more things change the more they stay the same....

Go back to the declaration of independence and read the list of crimes committed by de-facto government prior to 1776.

London bankers were key to the creation of the central bank in the USA by 1792. The war of 1812 was fought over the refusal to renew the 20 year charter to that bank. by 1815 Rothschild owned England outright.

Rothchild and friends have been at work trying to create NWO for 200+ years. Seems like they always come upon set backs... thankfully.

Really these shenanigans have been going on for centuries but hardly anyone could handle the cognitive dissonance of it all 200 years ago ...except for a few really smart people like Thomas Jefferson.

Jefferson's quotes were not prophetic, he was talking about things that happened in his days.

'Alternative Media' Like The Daily Paul

All that I can state is that Ron Paul CURED MY APATHY!
The 'news' (the REAL news) is BAD now, and about to get a lot worse (see 'Ron Paul Philosopher's Stone' video on youtube courtesy of RedPill Radio). LINK:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2FyfAQ75GaQ

Yeah, you are correct. The Daily Paul and Micheal Nystrom are giving out the REAL news, and have been for at least 5 years that I know of.
It kind of bugs your eyes out, seeing the REAL news!

Some people can't handle it.

Not so much anymore.

The site is changing for the worse.

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

Lol

When I read this:

I mean, this stuff is TOTALLY outrageous. Anyone who looks at that, nods, and clicks over to the next article has been reading this stuff for too long.

I literally laughed out loud because 75% of the articles/posts here aren't news to me. What you said is so true.

My uncle thinks

he's being edgy when he says, "I'm not a Repubican, I'm a conshervateeve." These kinds of headlines are too much for him unless you can frame it in terms of why it's Obama's fault.

It's too bad people are so caught up in the left/right paradigm being the most important fight. They think their little battles are important because they can just make the world right if it weren't for that other side. Meanwhile, real human beings suffer.

Defend Liberty!

Don't mean to pry,

but you should really work on that. You CAN bring them around to our way of thinking. Yes, you will have to take it slow. You can't bombard them with everything all at once, but you can begin to point out the flaws with the Republicans and many of the so-called "Conservatives." If you are patient, you will win the day. My Dad and Step-mom were life long Conservative Republicans and I'm proud to say that they both voted for Ron Paul in the primaries in '08 and '12 and even prouder to say that I actually got my Dad to vote Gary Johnson in '12 in the General Election! He actually went to the polls on election day saying he was going to vote for Romney, but in the booth he told me, "I couldn't do it. I was standing there thinking, this just doesn't make any sense [voting for Romney]" and he went for Johnson.

That describes perfectly both of my parents.

It is utterly depressing.

What would the Founders do?

Your Uncle.

What a shame for you and your uncle.
I CONSERVE THE REPUBLIC, and believe in the principles of LIBERTY (Oh-Oh, I am also a 'LIBERTARIAN', 'LIBTARD', and whatever)!
When the PTB are in control of BOTH of the 'parties' (like it's 1999!), they will use the divisive nature of the false paradigm to promote idiocracy within the population. Your Uncle sounds like a typical victim of this predictive programming.
Well, i suppose he thinks that NDAA and USAPATRIOT and illegal wars slaughtering millions under Bush the Younger (and Elder) are somehow BETTER!
Have him go through a TSA GROPEFEST a few times (TSA, established by USAPATRIOT under Bush the Younger). How about a visit from the EPA (established under Nixon). Your Uncle sounds 'clueless',unfortunately for him. Let's try the DHS, or the TIA on him.
It makes NO difference, the puppet regieme in charge...
