The Last Hour
Simply share your favourite Ron Paul moment weather its of the man or eating pizza locked out of a delegate meeting (in video or pictures, keep text short).
I'll kick it off with pure class...
My daughter and I went to see Tom Petty at the Gorge in WA last Friday evening. I usually buy a t-shirt while I'm at the show and it is usually hot there so I wanted to wear a shirt I could take off and leave at the show since I planned on wearing whatever shirt I bought at the show.
I went to my dresser drawer, I usually have a few old t-shirts in there that are ready to be sent to goodwill, to find a shirt to wear and when I opened my drawer, the first shirt I saw was a black one that was folded up nicely, my girlfriend is really a great woman, and I picked it up and held it by the top and let the bottom fall towards the floor and when it unfolded, I quickly realized it was a Ron Paul t shirt from the 2012 campaign. The shirt felt really great in my hands as they were actually made pretty well. I remember thinking about the time I had spent on the campaign, going to see Ron in Seattle and talking to many people about Ron. I went so far as to put up signs in my yard and windows of my house. I had buttons I would pass out when someone would show some interest in talking about Ron Paul and what he stands for. I had never before been involved in politics, other than talking with people about it. I remember all the great hope I had for Ron winning and being able to start the turn around of our country and what it could mean for the future of us all.
Awesome Nature Photography: A Falcon Nesting In A Tree
I have received many remarkable nature photographs over the years but this photo of a nesting Falcon is perhaps the most remarkable Nature shot that I have ever seen. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Nature is truly breath-taking!
I've sent this to most of my older friends. The younger ones probably have never seen a falcon and wouldn't recognize it.
Sunil Dutta, a 17-year veteran of the Los Angeles Police Department and professor of homeland security at Colorado Tech University, has a suggestion for victims of police violence searching for someone to blame: Look in the mirror.
You may recall the coverage of “Baby Bou Bou,” who was badly burned (and went into a coma) during a no-knock police raid when police tossed a flash bang grenade through a window and directly into his crib in the middle of the night. This would be bad enough on its own, but to top things off, the police never found the suspect that they were looking for that night – a man wanted for drug charges, who was arrested a day later.
We opened up registration for the first time in a long time, and that revealed some bugs in the site that are in need of fixing. The DP is like a big old drafty house, in need of some maintenance and repair, and for that I need your help.
I went to set up a donation widget at that great free site chipin.com, and its gone! That internet institution, ChipIn is no more. That's what happens to free resources on the internet. Eventually, they disappear.
Please don't let that happen to the Daily Paul. You can make a one time or recurring contribution to the DP with your PayPal account or your credit or debit card.

Since ChipIn is no more, and there are no other free substitutes that I can find, I will be updating the thermometer manually.

Ferguson, Missouri has been engulfed in rioting and looting following the death of 18-year-old black teenager Michael Brown. Officer Darren Wilson, a white policeman, shot and killed Brown on the streets of Ferguson - a tragic incident that became the catalyst for a wave of civil unrest in the local community.
Once the news surfaced that a young black man was shot by a white cop you would’ve thought Moses had parted the sea. Blacks on the street rioting, looting, and threatening the rest of America from the video cameras of willing news crews. Whites around town attempting to find ANY reason to side with the cops. “Well, that young man was HIGH on pot and had just robbed a convenience store!”
Yes, we know.
Neither of these is the real problem.
The REAL problem in Ferguson is that people are prematurely choosing sides without knowing WHAT in the hell really happened.

Rand Paul and Ted Cruz’s differing tone in response to the Ferguson riots could provide clues for the divergent trails they're forging to woo libertarian voters in 2016.
Both the Kentucky and Texas Senate Republicans urged that civil liberties be protected in statements following unrest in Ferguson, Mo.. After an officer shot and killed Michael Brown, an 18 year old African American teen, last weekend, riots have erupted and police have been criticized for using overly-aggressive force against protesters and reporters calling for answers.
Strategists say Paul struck a more provocative tone against in his TIME op-ed, calling for the demilitarization of police but also noting inequality in the prison system. Meanwhile, Cruz took a more tame tack in calling for protection of civil liberties.
"With Ferguson, Rand Paul took a more libertarian approach -- Ted Cruz is just giving lip-service to civil liberties," said Wes Benedict, president of the Libertarian Party. "I think the press sometimes gives Sen. Cruz undue credit for leaning-libertarian, but I just don't see it."
