Why nobody gives a shit if you stay or leave the DP

Stop posting about this!! Nobody gives a fuck whether or not you guys come and go! Stop spamming the site with your useless posts and lets stay relevant to the purpose of the site.

Those of us who stay love it. Those of us who don't like it, head over to CNN or some other site. The DP is original, and I like coming to one of the few websites dedicated for people who think like me. So please don't let the door hit you on the way out, and I'm sure you'll be back in the future anyways.

Please STFU! -Thanks

Didn't Jesus say pray in your closet? And whip the money changers? Feed the poor? Do those things, just keep the rest to yourself. Thanks!

What did I miss? I was occupied over the weekend and couldn't check in.

Anyway, kudos. Well said. Thank you.

I come and I go... But, the

I come and I go... But, the more of these lame posts that take up space on the front page the less I will come.

Wait until 2016

and watch the numbers of members surge only to quickly abandon the site , while being very vocal about it, to try to make it appear that it is ineffectual or a group of the "lunatic fringe". One thing about status quo groupies, they aren't very patient.

There are no politicians or bankers in foxholes.

I left a couple times. And I

I left a couple times. And I came back. I didn't write about it though.

Those that choose not to be political will...

I have learn sooo much and prefer to continue to take the "red pill".

And also it's basically

And also it's basically impossible. I wish I could be like every californian and live my daily life in oblivion trust me i've tried but its impossible. That's not who we are. We are that 1% that started the revolution back in the 1700's. Also by choosing to do that or try to you are turning your back to all the evil in this world and our government it is our responsibility to hold this government accountable and change it or else we can't deny the blame in the future when we are held accountable.

I'm a californian, brother.

And trust me, there are many of us here. This ground is tough, but they're not stupid.

Don't Read Those Posts . . .

problem solved.

I didn't want to have to post

I didn't want to have to post this but it was in the heat of the moment and nobody has said anything even though were all thinking the same thing

Problem not solved people

Problem not solved people need to stop spamming the site with their useless nonsense this goes for all other shit not related to liberty as well. Comedic sketches are cool once in a while every now and then but thats not what this site is about..go over to ebaumsworld if you want to post videos about random stuff.

I wrote a do suicide post once...

lasted a few hours. hahahaha

This place is home. Don't know where I would go if I didn't come here. I don't post as much as I do during elections. It's still the best site on the net for news and philosophical debate.

'Peace is a powerful message.' Ron Paul

Lol why not just leave

Lol why not just leave peacefully? It's not like whenever i'm at a libertarian meeting I stand up and go "Hey guys I have an important announcement to make I like everyone here blah blah blah blah blah but i'm not going to come back anymore"


Yep this place is like home. Even though a lot of people are snarky, still my favorite place to be. Kinda like a abusive relationship, I keep coming back for more.


Mispelled! So refreshing to see a speck of truth in the mountians of lies.



MUHAHAHAHAHA... That is too


That is too funny! I used to post here daily, those 4 years when we were all so busy kickin ass, sharing our activism, getting ideas from one another, going door to door, sharing our delegate struggles, or parades and videos or pics of RP rallies - GOD it was great...those were the days we had so much going on and I felt (or hoped) we were really doing something. And we were and still are - part of me want to believe - but just on a different level.

Now I feel like we (or is it just me??) are just waiting for the dollar to collapse and we're just cataloging the last days and The Great Fail of this experiment we call the United States... Watch the BRICS, keep preppin and on and on. I've lost hope for regress of grievance through political activism or the political process. It's beyond fixin'. Now all we can do is say "Hey!Look at this indicator of increased tyranny...or this WOW"...Tick Tock. OMG the list of egregious wrongness unrolls like an endless scroll. At this point I don't have so much to add to the discussion anymore we've kinda covered it all.

Today I'm just a serious, DL...(Daily Lurker)and only occasionally post. I need to check in every day to see if the world still exists or if the SHTF while I was sleeping. Anybody else do that?


Although I never felt the need for the drama of a suicide note,after the election was over I drifted away for a while. But what you say is indeed true, we ALWAYS come back. Indeed we do.

well said...

Hey - point taken.

I of course was the target of and the author of one of these 'i'm leaving' posts.

Once or twice I've removed the 'original' tag from a piece because I just didn't like it that well and disagreed with Michael's choice to put it in the top 5 box.

I'm sure it's not just you

Your post touched me because I remember those days. I see some of my favorite posters from back then from time to time and I wonder, did they stay in the GOP like I did? I think not, and I think this is where Ron Paul FAILED huge to get his message across to those of us who were so busy "kicking ass" in the streets.

I think you mean "kicking ass" by Meet-ups collectively doing things to get attention for Ron Paul?

Off the streets and in the seats.

I don't feel like I'm waiting for a collapse or BRIC.. I've watched too many movies and docs about government collapse, and I get a lot of peace from the scripture that says there will be wars and rumors of war. That sums it. So it's rather just more of the same.. except that now I am in the GOP and I have a purpose and a function with the Liberty Movement in the GOP, and to be honest, though it made me sick to register Republican.. It's the best political move of my life. I'm learning election laws, rewriting by-laws, networking and working on a practicle level in the GOP, thanks to Ron Paul.

Did you know you can make a living at this? I didn't. People who work campaigns can legally earn hundreds of thousands.. so why wouldn't the Liberty Movement be interested? I don't get it.

I think most don't have a clue, that's why the do things like blame Jesse Benton or call corruption on issues, because they don't know the laws and rules.. and I am very exicting and happy about the elections coming up where some Ron Paul Republicans I "grew up with .. seems after all these years" will be first time candidates.. and we are all new to this.. that's why I'm having to study election laws.. as treasurer you learn a lot about politics.

And finally, The Libertybelle, I'm really excited about the 2016 convention where we get to Meet-up on a national level..

We are definately a visable force and upcoming movement in the GOP and I am proud and happy of my Ron Paul Republican political peers and I absolutely believe that WE ARE THE FUTURE. And I'm having fun.

Thank you for confirming that I did the right thing for me.


Good to hear from you,

Good to hear from you, Granger! It's been a while, huh? How are those chickens? LOL!

I absolutely commend you for following your heart...you're a dynamo, girl and that's a fact! I pray that you are correct and that we can have redress through political activism ( always has been my first choice ) your enthusiasm is palpable and inspiring! GO GIRL! I pray that your approach will prevail.

Me? I'm just to damn busy now turning our land into a sustainable, working cattle ranch and farm, Joel Salatin style as it were. Maybe when I get that up and running I can rekindle my latent activist talents, just simmering below the surface. And, if all it holds together long enough, you may just see me!

Forever in Freedom

Just finished my third and final burn pile last week.. time of year when I can't seem to stretch my arms and back from all the pushing and pulling reaching and gripping to whip the land into shape to handle the winter enough. I feel you!

Chickens.. I love them.. Had to put down bonbon for bumblefoot (he was so huge his weight was his problem).. but before he departed he left me with two really beautiful hens (still laying) and the sweetest roo named for some folks on the DP.

I decided to go straw bale square foot gardening.. so that's what I'm doing now.

I know what you mean about tick-tocking down the days...

and the bottomless scroll of bad news.

I lurk through my Daily Sources list looking for something positive, but other than 3D printing or bitcoin stories it's all pretty-much downers.

But I keep trying! Let's all keep trying.

The truth is always crystal clear without an agenda.

You just said what thousands of us only thought. Thanks.

I tend to be a literalist,

Aw c'mon it's a regular tradition

they are called "DP Suicide Notes" and it's an established literary format. The lastest from Jawa was respectfully withdrawn the second after it was published. And they are invariably entertaining. In a highly callously warped way.

Most of those who think so actually don't and most of those who think sew actually rip.
