Happy Thanksgiving to All !

I want to wish all the readers of the Daily Paul a warm and happy Thanksgiving. We all have something to be thankful for and even though things are not as we might wish them to be we still are here and able to communicate with each other. We can be grateful for the many blessings we have and work harder each day to bring Liberty to all.

This song talks to my heart.

I met Aimee Allen at the Vets supporting Ron Paul march in DC and bought her CD. I have to say that I've had a special "connection" to her through her music. I think maybe she is a "Christian Anarchist" just like me!! Anyway, this song really reaches me...


Beware the cult of "government"...

Wow! 24 hours of comments.

I posted my thanksgiving message and then due to the nature of the holiday did not get back to the DP until now and I find all these nice comments from my brothers and sisters here at the DP and get all warm and fuzzy inside. I love the DP community and am thankful for so many people working towards LIBERTY !!

Beware the cult of "government"...

Have a happy Thanksgiving, Daily Paul!

For those with families inclined to sing, here are lyrics and tunes to a few traditional Thanksgiving songs. Enjoy the day!

Come, Ye Thankful People, Come
Come ye thankful people, come.
Raise the song of harvest home.
All is safely gathered in,
Ere the winter storms begin;
God, our Maker, doth provide
For our wants to be supplied;
Come to God's own temple, come,
Raise the song of harvest home.

Prayer of Thanksgiving
We gather together to ask the Lord's blessing;
He chastens and hastens His will to make known;
The wicked oppressing now cease from distressing.
Sing praises to His Name; he forgets not His own.

Turkey In The Straw
Went out to milk
And I didn’t know how
I milked the goat
Instead of the cow
A monkey sittin’
On a pile of straw
A-winkin’ at
His mother-in-law

Turkey in the straw - Straw! Straw!
Turkey in the hay - Hay! Hay!
Roll ‘em up and twist ‘em up
A high tuck a-haw
And we'll hit ‘em up a tune called
"Turkey in the Straw."

Add'l verse (There are many versions)
Tune http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2KBYIJA2uYs

Over the River and Through the Wood
Over the river and through the wood to Grandmother's house we go;
The horse knows the way to carry the sleigh through the white and drifted snow.
Over the river and through the wood, oh how the wind does blow!
It stings the toes and bites the nose as over the ground we go.

Over the river and through the wood and straight to the barnyard gate,
We seem to go so very slow, and it's so hard to wait,
Over the river and through the wood, now grandmother's cap I spy,
Hurrah for the fun, the pudding's done, hurrah for the pumpkin pie.

Over the river and through the wood, now soon we'll be on our way,
There's feasting and fun for every one, for this is Thanksgiving Day.
Over the river and through the wood, get on, my dapple grey,
The woods will ring with songs we sing, for this is Thanksgiving Day.

Amazing Grace
Amazing grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost, but now I'm found,
Was blind, but now I see.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Be thankful for your health. With your health, anything is possible.

Without your health, the only thing you want is to get it back, and you're filled with regret the way you took it for granted.

Be thankful for your body, for allowing you to experience this world. Take good care of it. Don't eat too much, but if you do (of course you will!), don't forget to exercise:


Thank you everyone. I'm thankful for the Daily Paul, and for everyone here.

He's the man.

Happy Thanksgiving to All My Family and Freinds at Daily Paul

Sometimes it is hard to be thankful in bad times, this song helps me:

Happy Thanksgiving To You!


Thank you ChristianAnarchist and Back at You!

I'm thankful for many things. And today especially my youngest grandson. Born on 9/11/12.


Great little guy there BT.

Thanks JC. And Happy Thanksgiving to you too.

Have a...

...great Thanksgiving. :)

Seems like more than a few people I know are hurting this holiday from losing loved ones or struggling with injuries and illness. Praying they, and everyone, will find an abundance of Love and Peace surrounding and comforting them.

Thankful for many things -- including the Daily Paul :).

Well to the people from the

Well to the people from the US anyway.

Happy Thanksgiving, ChristianAnarchist,

and to ALL of my friends on the Daily Paul :-)

Prior to dinner, I will be reading this to all of my friends and family on that day. It is from the Ron Paul Institute:
