It's my 7 Year Birthday Today on the Daily Paul!

Much has changed in 7 years. I'm older, balder, fatter, and slightly wiser.

I've added 2 children to my family.

We joyfully dumped our old 501(c)3 corporate preacher at Landmark Baptist Church in Petoskey, Michigan, after trying to wake up the sheeple for five years.

We moved to Kalispell, Montana, and joined a group of like-minded awake believers, with Pastor Chuck Baldwin as our pastor, at Liberty Fellowship.

Thank you Michael for your service to the cause of Liberty and Freedom.

W T G, Double P!

Remember you from my early lurking days in '08

Do you remember ""?

I had lots of fun with that. It was a pro-Ron Paul website that I did to reel people in to look at him. So many people were attacking him because of the mis-information campaign by the mainstream media, I couldn't resist the opportunity to feed of the anti-Ron Paul frenzy being artificially whipped up.

AWESOME! Great post. Love

AWESOME! Great post. Love seeing what you have done.

I have always felt really good about Pastor Baldwin.

I've met him a few times in person and just felt warmth. The light shines through him. But perhaps the most touching thing is one time I emailed him and said Pastor, if there room in your flock for those of us of blood and of different traditions?

He sent back one word: ABSOLUTELY.

So one day you might just find a greasy old biker/hippie dude showing up. I imagine that to be a good day.

Perhaps we shall hold hands and dance.

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

Our fellowship is a diverse crowd...

Ron Paul was very correct in saying that Liberty brings all people together. I'll go one step further to say that those who are sincerely seeking truth, with an open (and humble) mind, will find themselves on the same path of many others doing the same thing.

On that path, the commonality is the pursuit of truth, which may be the only thing in that you share in common with the person next to you. You'll find old, young, rich, poor, the "educated", and the simple, believers and non-believers, pro-life and pro-choice, all races and creeds.

What you don't see an abundance of, though, is those with a prideful attitude. I've always been struck by Ron Paul people as being some of the nicest people I've come to meet. I think the thing that resonates with my soul, to such a degree, is the air of humbleness that many people seem to have.

That quality was the one that I found most admirable in Ron Paul - the fact that he always attacks the issue, and not the person. Just like Jesus - hate the sin, but love the sinner.

I say that to say this - there are all kinds of people at Liberty Fellowship. They all love liberty, and are on a quest for truth. And they all look different, like your average Ron Paul speaking engagement might look.

Happy Anniversary!

Congratulations on moving to Montana!
Or should I say leaving Michigan?!!! :-)

Here's to 7 more years!

Way to be the change you want.

Thanks, I'm still a changin...

I remember 7 years ago, I discovered Ron Paul. It's been a journey of truth, through a sea of lies.

My wife, now that we're in Montana, is finally seeing much of what I saw when we lived in Michigan. Some, like us, will have that "wake up" moment.

I pray that there'll be enough to hold off the inevitable.

your pastor is Chuck Baldwin, ssssaaaawwwweeet. Happy DP Birthday bro, and congrats on the two new editions.

The R3volution requires action, not observation!!!!

He's a great man, and a humble man...

Has to be in order to get endorsed for president by Ron Paul in 2008. Reflecting back on our move to Montana, I never thought I'd live here.

Pride is the primary problem with America's preachers - they think they know it all. I listened to a message that Chuck preached about "voting with your feet", and getting out of the sold-out churches, and made a good decision to take my wife and 8 kids west. I've not regretted it, nor has any of my family. We love it here.

For anyone that wants to dump the watered-down preaching of your pastor, join us online, every Sunday, for a live-stream of Chuck's message, at 2:30 MST, by going to

Wow, congrats

seems you made a lot of big changes.

The message above (from Sunday) is a great message!

Actually part of a trilogy. First message was a week ago on Wednesday. Chuck really nails the problems in the church today. We're so very blessed to have his vision as our pastor.
