How did you choose your Daily Paul "handle"?

DP classic unleashed, originally published Apr 30, 2008.
Your thoughts, please ...

I was just curious, looking over the list of "Who's Online" earlier today, about some of the very interesting and sometimes bizarre log-in names that people use here on the Daily Paul. I thought it might be fun to share how those of you with some of the more strange names (Martfuncher, HolyNinja, Mashthegas, etc.) arrived at them, if you don't mind telling.

I am named after

my brother's former address somewhere in central Florida. He doesn't live there anymore, but I thought it funny and appropriate that the person who introduced me to Libertarianism lived on Freedom Road.

Also, I like to think that the Ron Paul Revolution puts us all on Freedom Road.

Mine came about....

Ron Paul was asked a question during a debate:

Congressman Paul, What would you do to end the war in Iraq?

He answered: "Just come home! " . That was the night I logged into the Daily Paul for the first time and it rang in my head as a perfect name/message.

Professor Bernardo de la Paz

I could have gone as well with Manuel Garcia O'Kelly Davis, Wyoming Knott, le Comte Stuart LaJoie, or Mycroft Holmes -- all central or peripheral characters in THE MOON IS A HARSH MISTRESS, by Robert A. Heinlein, which in my (not very humble) estimation is the greatest novel of all time and space. Decades ago, at the tender age of 13 years it introduced me all at once to the righteous concepts libertarianism, rational anarchy, and joyous polyamory. I never looked back.

I falute highly enough to embrace the sobriquet "Professor". It is conferred on myself by myself, for there is no higher authority over my life.

Ah! Gospodin de la Paz,

I have also chosen a pseudonym from the book THE MOON IS A HARSH MISTRESS. Mine is not a character but a political comic who ridicules the current establishment. My name is a symbol of anti-government.

Warmest greetings from one follower of the great RAH to another! I do recall seeing the name of Simon Jester on these pages and recognized it immediately. Say on, brother, and keep fighting the good fight. We offer the state, like all bullies, two things they cannot tolerate: defiance and ridicule.

I so loved that book that I was determined to name my third child from it, and so my daughter was given the name of Autumn Selene. Had she been a boy her name would have been Adam, of course.

Stranger in a Strange Land

another great one by Mr. Heinlein, was mind-altering to me. It perfectly describes my situation as a *new* Ron Paul Republican having to confront all my old *puzzled* dem friends.

I've been in two situations where individuals have bought cases of books to give away that were impactful to them: Stranger in a Strange Land in the past, Atlas Shrugged, recently.

re my name? my absolute favorite program I work in. Its transformational techniques...and Ron Paul (!) have brought great happiness to my life.


I am deeply concerned about all of our precious bodily fluids.


you're silly.

We can all say what needs to be done, but who here led by example today?

I found Daily Paul a little

I found Daily Paul a little before Christmas, and noticed some posts talking about stocking up on beans, bullets, and gold. Then something in my head clicked and I realized those scattered videos I watched on youtube teaching fractional reserve and how money/interest created from debt ultimately collapses was basically where we were at now! But the name had a deeper meaning because I'm just at the point in life where the bare reality of the world is being exposed. My 30-ish years so far on this planet were happy, some dreamlike (hence the name), raised in a Christian household, although I've been atheist for almost 10 years now.

Well, mine came to mind

while working with The Producer Revolution and freecapitalist.com originator, Rick Koerber. In his book, The Primer, he talks about the Brain-Off Conspiracy. Once I read that chapter, I knew I had been one.

Everyone else posting calls those of us with our brains-off - "sheeple".

I had to add the "2" when I had to re-register for this forum.

You Tube kicked me off twice. I was; brainon4u, then brainon4u2, and am now: brainonnow.

I wrote an editorial, headlined like this: "545 Legislators Control 300 Million Brain-Off Americans"

Head in the Sand - Sheeplee - Brain-Off all seem to fit those whom we try every day, one by one, to educate.

When someone make a stupid statement, I am known to say, "turn your brain on and think about it".

Samuel Howell Jr. was my 6th

Samuel Howell Jr. was my 6th great grandfather. He was First Corporal and First Sergeant in the Philadelphia City Troop and Light Horse (which had close association with General Washington and was at times his escort) during the War for Independence. He fought in the battles of Trenton, Princeton, Brandywine, Germantown and later fought in the Whiskey Rebellion; was a member of Schuylkill Fishing Company; a member of the Committee of Safety; and, appointed by Washington as Commissioner of the U.S. Bank.


That is so interesting. I love history and that is just so cool!


Thank you. I am doing what

Thank you. I am doing what I can to preserve his memory, as well, as the beliefs of all those who struggled with him.

My first name...


My liberty-minded home base of thought:



Freedom - Peace - Prosperity

Unalienable rights come from our Creator. Not the Bill of Rights

I took the pre-druid name Jesus from the original KJV of the bible which is IESU and combined it with the letters IHVH and formed the name iehuvihs.
It is very similar to the names Jehovah and Yehweh and when spelled backwards shivuhei it is similar to the name shiva the god of destruction from the triune or trinity of brahma, vishnu and shiva. But anyone who has ever studied the bible, a tool of Constantine to control liberty loving (anarchistic) Christians with the institution of a universal archistic church, would know this already.

Mine Come from the Bill of Rights

It's just my name, and I happen to be big :)

There are 5 of us in our family and our last name is Blue. I was going to go with 5A's4RonPaul, because all of our names start with "A", but it looks funny to me.

I chose

my nickname because I study Natural Horsemanship and my mentor wants humans to savvy (understand) how horses think, act and play. I thought it was great to make the nickname SavvyRonPaul because once people understand his message, they become supporters. Savvy?!

My name is a fictitious character

Makoto Shishio is a character from the anime series Samurai X (Kenshin). He is the main "antagonist" since he is on the opposite faction from the main character, but really he is fighting to overthrow the Imperialist Government (Meji) that won the civil war in Japan. He used to be the Meji gov't's most secret assasin, until they tried to burn him to death because he knew to much about the evils they had to commit to secure victory. He didn't die. And now he will know no peace until he overthrows the government. Those wishing to remain in control would call him a Terrorist, others who know the truth would call him a Patriot.

Although my handle had originally

to do with my faith, a Christian who believes that Christ already returned, and has set up His kingdom (and therefore things should be getting better), as opposed to some Christians' beliefs that it should be getting worse, my handle fit right in when Ron Paul started running for president. I believe God has raised him up, and he will be successful in this revolution.

St. Paul

Razorwind Studios is an official endorser of Ron Paul, and we will live free or die! 14th alternate to MN state!

If that isn't a sign I don't know what is...

What better name ..

for a true Conservative ?

Its been my AIM screen name

Its been my AIM screen name for years. Bright for the good in the world, and dRRkness for the bad. The double R is simply because somebody had Dark.

As to the Band name below... Unfledged means, Lacking the feathers neccisary for flight. So a fantasy that will never fome true, basically.

Fanstasy Unfledged-Please support local music.

I have used this nickname for over 8 years. It is basically stating that there is a certain purity to chaos since our entire universe is rather chaotic and predictable. Plus it sounds cool. :)

The day before I joined

I was going through old receipts from when I bought my house.
Right there, listed under the color of my carpet was the name "Thundercloud".

I thought it sounded cool.

In the carpet world, "thundercloud" is sort of a mottled gray.

~Ron Paul On the 911 Truth movement.

My name

The truth lives in daylight. So for Ron Paul, my handle is my name.


That is why I used my real name on soc.bi so many years ago. On the other hand it is fun to use a handle sometimes and mine is appropriate to the topic and one I have also used since the 90s as well. And for those if you who follow me on twitter (and many of you do) you know who I really am. But let's leave that for twitter tyvm.

Don't tell anyone but...

...my name is Melissa, and I live in WV.
