VOTE: Should The Granger Stay or Get Lost?

Today I received a notice from DP saying that my, "Pro", status expires tomorrow 10AM EST.

Should I pay to stay, or should I go with respect to those that have the privilege to down vote me into oblivion for free?

I believe in financially supporting the FREEDOM OF SPEECH because while freedom may be popular, freedom isn't free.

I have a FRIEND who says I spend way too much time on DP, yet today, that same FRIEND, offered to sponsor me for another year as a PRO.

So, this is how the voting for me to stay or go will work:

An up vote on this TOPIC ARTICLE means: "STAY GRANGER with DP".

Down votes will be counted on a post below: "GET LOST GRANGER!!"


BUMPS do not count as how one voted. The bump for this article only keeps the thread bumped for others to see, providing others the opportunity to vote for me to stay of go.

Up votes ON The TOPIC ARTICLE, and down votes on the, "GET LOST GRANGER!!", will be the only votes counted.

Personally, I think voting should be for PROs ONLY. Many of us have complained about the voting icon (and it could hurt (((MN))) as he has a paying customer to lose in this election due to those who cheat).

Will Granger Stay or Go? I leave it to the majority (and the voting icon) to determine.

Does anyone think it would be to divert attention from this?

And Granger re-emerges with her most popular number wise post.

Watch it, because that is where they want all societies.

i can't say your exactly one of my most favorite people

Generally your always so negative I get depressed after reading whatever you have to say. But 1/20 of your posts have good points.

Take a break. Collect yourself. Get laid, and come back when you aren't feeling like such a negative Nancy.

This is SO SIMILAR to Bernanke saying he might end TAPER!

The markets fell apart when he even mentioned it.

Granger LOVES ISRAEL (and twisted logic and deception)

They are both losing the Info War of reason.

And Freedom is founded on Reason.

Anyone who self posts something like this must be an

attention whore.

I know I could live without 18491+ of her comments but that's just me.

Granger, you should stay.

Your twisted logic and posts are designed to be political rather than principled and are GREAT TEACHING TOOLS.

Also your delivery. From absolute Authoritarian to total victim.

This site gets stronger with your presence, as do others that suffer the same.

I think we should all pitch in and get you a therapist.

There are enough sociopaths talking politics and your ego needs to come down a notch. You do what you want and good luck.

Here's one for you Grange.

Also, a majority vote?
Think about that Grange.
That's why some question your sanity.
Freedom of Speech or Expression is not up to a majority.
It is yours and yours alone.

Why is this even a post? I

Why is this even a post? I mean, who cares? There are so many other pressing issues to discuss..

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

I am not voting, as I cannot afford to be a Pro at this point

but I will bump the thread, and suggest that your conscience should make that decision. (Not fellow DPers)

I almost never agree with her but she has spirit.

I'm not a "Pro" so didn't vote, per your specs...

(even tho I think it's BS to discount people who can't pay to play here) but I have contributed financially otherwise so I guess that gives me the right to post on your thread. "who cares and why on earth do you need people's approval so badly or even any input other than your own on whether you stay or go?" was my first thought and I wasn't going to post here at all.

I don't care one way or the other - I can read your posts, I can ignore your posts. As someone I love, trust and admire said; "It's not important that we agree, it's important that we are allowed to disagree." (guess who!)

Then I read a particularly good reply and thought hey this is right on the money and should be repeated. So here it is again - wise words from coffee_sponge:

"Keep your eye on the ball: the Daily Paul is one of the most effective tools of communication the Liberty grass roots activists have. Even though I go weeks without the time to post, I maintain my Pro status if for no other reason than it helps Michael keep the lights on in this important work."

You should go...

This is the dailypaul not the daily neocon.

I don't understand

The need for people to make these threads. You're never going to find a place where people agree with you 100%. So, put on your big girl panties and tough it out, but posting about it is silly.

wtf is wrong with some people?

buncha freeloaders shitting on you again Granger?


never mind.

Was not worth saying.

It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people that pay no price for being wrong.

oh go ahead

I can see you biting your lip,trying to keep from posting it

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

Kook or NOT, The Granger Stays!

If you mean spirited people rid "The Granger, I'm gone. I don't want to associate my self with people like you.



You always post good shit :/

Its important to have opposing views

I agree that people can say what they want

but it is kinda distracting. Isn't there an ignore button somewhere?

I don't care what you do. I

I don't care what you do. I disagree passionately with you on many issues but, so what? You are doing me no harm by posting on the DP. I feel that some of your posts provoke strong reaction and lead to some interesting (if heated) dialog. I count that as a net positive for the most part.

Stay or go, that is up to you.

Ha yep.

It's blatantly obvious she loves down votes and attention.

I'm just now seeing this for the first time--

and the votes may already be counted. But I say, "stay"--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

i love that movie

There should be more Norm McDonald(sp?) movies!

I'd rather have a bottle in front o' me than a frontal lobotomy


To celebrate, I'm going to wear purple today.

To those who voted STAY: THANK YOU for your vote, conditional and unconditional.

To those who voted GET LOST!!: Thank you for your honesty.


To The Mods: Thank you for the DP original placement on the page. Please remove it now. I made a post on the Mod box because when I tried to RENEW my subscription it took me to the front page.

How do I pay up? I know I know I owe I owe

Purple is a fine color, but it wasn't everyone else being...

sarcastic, it was me. I did it. It started as a joke and got out of hand. I wasn't even drinking so it was all me.

I'll see you later but hopefully sooner...
