The DP chat is a collectivist conspiracy in our midst. Why is no one talking about this?

At considerable cost and administrative hassle for the DP mods, we have this inane chat feature at the bottom for registered users.

Thank Gods you can turn the thing off in your user profile settings, it's a bandwidth hog. And it's being used as an outright collectivist hive of conspiracies fowl. These people gossip back and forth and hatch little plans and write their little articles, posts and short stories and vote them up and get them top viewed and from there into DP Originals for the whole world to see.

This is the kind of crap they are probably discussing at this very moment:

  • How to get their stupid World Of Warcraft server running again.
  • Recipies for Pineapple Upside Down Ponzi Scheme Cake (they are seriously making these in addition to cheesecakes).
  • Dead languages such as Middle English, Latin, Greek and several far Eastern European languages. In fact, Russian is spoken there! For real! Putin has a mouthpiece in this vile cesspool.
  • Poetry. Need we say more?
  • Who to make a fool out of today.

It's embarrassing to many of us and it's frankly just an example of how a vocal minority can work the system, OUR SYSTEM to their own advantage. They aren't representative of the whole of the DP community in any way. It's just that our voices aren't being heard above this constant din. And all their snarky jokes. That's a whole other story.

Who ever said freedom is a laughing matter? It's a serious business out there and it brings us the disapproval of many. People in high places are looking at this site and they hate being laughed at every bit as much as you and me. It's a real problem.

Fortunately there's something each one of us can do about it starting now. We can go to this chat, which I might add, SOME OF US LITERALLY PAY TO MAINTAIN, and we could just dilute their little collective. And we could use it to discuss our ideas and hatch timely, media-relevant attack posts and upvote them between us and do "coordinated post attacks" like they do.

And that will help show America who we really are. All of us. Not just this bunch of chatterbox loudmouths.

This isn't just another fight, this is a fight in our own midst, a fight amongst our own. Until we settle our own house we have no business meddling in any other. We have to deal with this head-on or know that we tolerate such...as I have made you aware of as of this moment. And I know the kind of people we are.

Smudge really did write

Smudge really did write prophetic words here, last year. Wow.


I totally forgot that existed!

I have noscript and ghostery running constantly.
I don't see the chat unless I allow scripts.

I remember visiting that chat once, talked to someone about music then left.

I do have a sense of humor

But I'm not sensing any herein, meaning I think you're being serious.

That being said, I rarely have enough to say that would give me reason to chat, shucks I once said three separate things to my beloved wife in the same week and that about wore me out, I can imagine having to occupy in a chat room for any good reason.
So I read the lengthy list of their crimes:
Conspiracy to commit Confectionary disasters,
Poorly put prose and pugnacious pronouncement of poetry,
Being somewhat thuggish in that they have an overriding sense of worthlessness who's remedy is only achieved in picking on others because they can and must in order to self actualize,
And conniving to artificially inflate the acceptance quota of an otherwise mediocre comment selection.
That's it, we must either ride them out on a rail all tarred and feathered or perhaps we could borrow a FEMA guillotine to make short work of these miscreants....... Of course that does open the door for us to be taken to task for our varrious quarks.......

Gosh, they sound almost human, egads.... And here I though libertarians where the end all be all of self control and self governing..... Or rather that we saw we had such a need and are works under construction, each of us at different points in the journey.

I am gonna have to take issue here, this is a major problem

1. I am truly impressed that my last act of consciousness, and i really did wake up at 5:30am and start hitting this bottle that has been hanging around doing nothing to justify the rent since thanksgiving and the only thing I am ashamed of about calling somebody a pugnacious little war hammer is I was saving that one for a special occasion.

No I'm not sorry, I would LOVE to be called a pugnacious little war hammer. That is such an awesome thing to call somebody and I think they should cherish this term all their lives and I feel I have ennobled them.

Dude that is definitive coolness. I can't believe I had the power and authority to confer this title and you are just jealous.


2. Read above.

Yes, I am green with envy,

Or perhaps it's just neglected toe jam? Nevertheless, that is a notable diatribic castigation, thou hast done well.

Hi smudge !

Man, you would be perfect for

Man, you would be perfect for chat. But you'd have to fight Jee-Host first.

Control -

This should be sub-filed under "humor".

The mass of young ex-Paul supporters out there, and specifically those who frequent this site - those who see the "Paul" movement as a gimmicky alternative flavor to their Liberal dogma, who are eagerly awaiting to vote Hillary as subjects of collective-control just to see their first woman president or to see the tired dogma of the conservative past finally laid to rest under a new and invincible Clinton - aren't literally fighting for their online games, poetry or polyglot praises. Those are personal pass-times with their own collectives. This is an ontological philosophy we're fighting for here. This growing collective thinks that guns are bad because violence is bad, capitalism is bad because corporations are bad, individual analysis and logic are bad because breaking social-contract is bad, and that moral code and religion are just an old restraint that has no social relevance today because the well-policed general consensus always prevails. Even if the "hope and change" they got in '12 was nothing more than a new face, Bush is still their only political enemy. All God-fearing conservatives are no different. "Right-wingers" are losing perspective as both sides of Janus are appearing at once, but the bastion of truth that this movement is supposed to represent to them is often slanted against their beliefs without the logic that brought them here. We forget that the Daily Paul is a political website, and that at the end of the day what goes on here should ultimately be in support of what the US Constitution has outlined - not what we think is cool.

More importantly, this growing collective believes that the government should be above the people in law because of its power, allowed to hide in the shadows, doling out goods and services on an unlimited open tab, enforcing popular morals and personal habits, and allowed to stand unaccountably backed by popular demand. The individuals within this collective have already patterned their personal characters after a celebrity - it is far too easy to simply hand over their nation and physical person to one again and again, when everyone else agrees with the unavoidable nature of that decision. This is the real fight that the DP has a responsibility to continue.

Collectives are a staple of life, and they grow when individuals find personal resonance within their ideologies. But collective-control forces that resonance onto individuals until they have no choice but to accept and conform.

Ask yourself why that is you pugnacious little war hammer

I leave the process of making lies real to The Onion. I specialize in making the truth sound unbelievable.


Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.

Rather, ask yourself why Hitler had wooden teeth.

It's not a question of missing the point of satire. The truth already sounds unbelievable to most. And if I had not long considered the effects of these subjects, I would not have replied to your post.

Now, I will admit, that was unintentional at first - then that rhymey bit at the end came in a sudden, awkward burst. Cheers from Merica.

This very night we get them back WHO IS WITH ME?

Tonight on the cowardly collectivist Jeff Treubig Show we get to call in and tell these sniverling collectivists what we think of their tiny tidal waves of support and tell Trevor Lyman and his cohorts to bury their heads in the sand.

Therefore do not call 855 873 8244 and press 2 at the appointed time because you are apes. Naked apes with pretensions.

Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.


I have not been here very long, so I am not one to talk. But there sure were a lot of "we", "us", and "our" language in your essay for you to be down-talking collectivist thinking.....

Hey Smudge...

"•Poetry. Need we say more?"

You need not say more. Those of us who are poets at heart would never make such a statement, so I take it you're not and may very well know little about the depths poets reach for in order to brighten or bring raw experience to your day.

Dont like the chat? Dont go

Dont like the chat? Dont go there. Problem solved.

I have a feeling this site will be sold or shut down before 2016 anyway.

Smudge... Yur killing me!!


Can I please have some of that

Pineapple Upside Down Ponzi Scheme Cake?

LoL! Sounds kinda good.

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

it's a lonely road

but somebody has to stand against Bill3

Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.

I've noticed this with BILL3 in particular

His comments seems to all get the same number of votes at the same time. It's kinda lame, but if that's what he needs to do to get attention, let him have it, I say.

Ya. It actually gets pretty annoying, maybe you could put a little space between us. I like to dance but I'm not ready for marriage.

first you are hot, then you are cold

I hate it when they play games. Ok, let's take some time apart and see other people. You let me know when you are ready to get more serious.
