7 Years! Happy Birthday Daily Paul!

Thank you everyone for the ongoing, never ending food for thought, grist for the mill, jam session, books, movies, conversation, skepticism, education, argument, intellectual stimulation, jokes, recipes, enlightenment, pictures, posturing, politics, activism, growth and love.

Thank you for sharing yourselves. It has truly been a pleasure.

Happy birthday Daily Paul and thank you.

Happy birthday dailyPaul.

Michael Nystrom, thank you.

All the mods here, thank you.

All the posters and readers here, thank you.

Thanks for having me...

I'm just a 24 year old, self-educated man, still learning the facets of liberty.

A lot of you people here I want to thank for helping me grow and learn.

Admittedly, it can be a bit intimidating at times, being surrounded (in a digital sense) by people who have way more knowledge than I.

Half the time, before commenting, I have an internal monologue of "Should I even comment this or that? Is my reasoning off? Am I going to look like a moron?"

At the end of the day, I don't want to be a burden to the DailyPaul. I may have ruffled a few feathers in the past, but I think I've calmed down a bit.

Anyways, Thanks for having me and allowing me to be here. To learn, to jam, to laugh, and to love.

Mike, out.

Thank you Michael and to all who make this site what it is. I still check in to read a bit several times a week.

So miss hearing from you, Liberty_Belle

Even when we disagreed, it was always worth thinking about.

Please, share more of your favorite music videos when you have the time. I've found some great finds while searching for something to share with others here. I look forward to hearing more from you when you find more time to write.

Goodnight Dailypaul. Happy 7 year.

Goodnight jrd

Thank you for being here. Have you noticed the splash you've made? Now everyone wants to have their own nightly [fill in the blank].

The Jam Session just had a birthday, and your innovation was a place on the DP where people don't argue! Imagine that! They just share. They don't call each other trolls for not liking the same kind of music. And they enjoy one another's company, and offerings and they treat each other like human beings.

Thank you jrd. Thank you for this song, and for all the others, and for the song that is you.

He's the man.


The DailyPaul carried me over from the end on the 2008 Ron Paul campaign into 2012. This was where I learned to feel comfortable expressing myself on line. The freedom movement owes you and your website so much.

Thanks to Lao Tzua for introducing this one to me, by Colin Hay, former lead singer of Men at Work


And still this emptiness persists
Perhaps this is as good as it gets
When you've given up the drink
And those nasty cigarettes
Now I leave the party early, at least with no regrets
I watch the sun as it comes up, I watch it as it sets
Yeah, this is as good as it gets

He's the man.

Wonder how many of those who

Wonder how many of those who joined this site in 2007 are still here. I read this site more than three hours a day back then (from my wife, thanks Michael) and many names of the posters are seared into my memory, though few still post as that today. Has the majority changed their names or moved on? The birth of the moneybomb, the ReLOVEution theme, the blimp, the Hannity snowball, heady days indeed. You're a cool guy Michael; wish I braved the snow that day and drove the hour to the Dec. 16th thing, met you, clapped for Ron, first saw Rand.

10-15 million more voters need to believe in non-interventionism (liberty) at home and abroad to change America. Minds changed on Syria. Minds changing on privacy. "Printing money" is part of the dialogue. Win minds through focus, strategy.

Debbie's picture

Yes, me too. Those were heady days indeed!

Happy Birthday Daily Paul, may you have many, many more in the spirit of 07-08!


Happy birthday

Today is my sixth birthday with you
It took a year to find you
And I am glad I did.

Thanks for making a remnant not feel so alone as I was for many decades

Thanks mike


Tip of the hat!

To Mr. Nystrom and every liberty lover who contributes to and reads the Daily Paul.
Thank you all.
Huzzah, huzzah, huzzah!

Happy Birthday to you...

Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday , dear DP,
Happy Birthday to you!

Thanks, Mr. Nystrom.

I feel like such a newb..

I was 8 months and 5 days late for the party! Thanks for everything Michael, and thank you DP members for a great place to learn and debate issues, both important and nonsensical. Happy Birthday!!

Happy BirthDaily Paul

We have the Certificate of Birth well-documented here online.

Liberty borne in hearts and minds of many posters and authors, musicians and poets, prophets and philosophers, have brought many friends and neighbors here a lot of love and peace.

Thank you, Michael, and the many, mad Mods, without whose help in this effort, this amazing forum for freedom might have been aborted, or put up for adoption.

We, for the most part, try to write or find the best elements to share with our community; knowing that a wider world of readers might be drawn here as well, and hopefully they'll love liberty, and hate tyranny, a bit better for their time spent with us.

I don't how many will agree, but I've found, The Problem, points me to the root of that Liberty Tree.

The Daily Paul lets us dare ask deeper question like this...

Happy Birthday DP, and thank you to Michael

This is THE site I check all day for news from all over the world.

The information gathered here is astounding, and it is coming in every minute. Although I don't post much anymore, I am ALWAYS checking DP for updates and breaking news.

Thank you Michael for having the patience and fortitude to continue this voluntary effort. Peace to you and your family

Happy B-day DP! Humans have a life expectancy of 80 years.

So do websites with a big heart that pump the blood of Liberty throughout the world. Many, many more birthdays, Daily Paul.
