Does "Dedicated to restoring Constitutional government to the United States of America" still represent most DPrs?Submitted by Vots on Thu, 10/16/2014 - 19:32
Dedicated to restoring Constitutional government to the United States of America .
That's at the top of the Daily Paul.
It was something I believed in when I first came to the Daily Paul. Ron Paul championed it, therefore I did.
But what's happened in the last two years I've been here?
I've moved beyond that mission statement. I left all my opinions and beliefs completely exposed to be challenged over the years. I now see the state as a total violation on the individual. I believe it to be immoral.
Watch What Happens When a Citizen Pulls Over an Unmarked Cop Car and Tells the Police Officer He’s Breaking the LawSubmitted by Ed Thinking on Mon, 10/20/2014 - 10:01
When the police see someone driving around breaking the law, it’s their job to stop them.
But upholding laws on the road isn’t a one-way street.
Gavin Seim turned the tables on a Washington state police officer in a video posted to YouTube last week, stopping the officer as the cop was driving an unmarked vehicle.
“Hey the reason I stopped you is I saw this car was unmarked,” Seim asks the officer. “Is this a registered unmarked vehicle for undercover work?”
When the officer said it was a patrol car, Seim whipped out his legal knowledge.
The socialist party in Seattle that wants to raise the federal minimum wage to $20 per hour but advertised a job last week for an experienced web developer paying just $13 per hour is now defending itself. [...]
The argument from the Freedom Socialist Party is that it cannot afford the minimum wage it seeks to impose on every commercial entity in America.
Central Florida Realtor and Republican congressional nominee Carol Platt has received the endorsement from the Orlando Sentinel over her congressional opponent, Democrat Congressman Alan Grayson.
Grayson is probably fuming over the paper’s endorsement of Platt, but does anyone blame the Sentinel for backing Platt over Grayson, considering his past divisive and insensitive political stunts and antics, not to mention the fact that he loves to spend taxpayer dollars.
Here is what the Orlando Sentinel wrote about Grayson:
Ron Paul's Texas Straight Talk 10/20/14: National Service is Anti-Liberty and Un-American (VIDEO)
Written by Ron Paul | Sunday, October 19, 2014
Former Clinton Administration Labor Secretary Robert Reich recently called on the government to force young people to spend two years either “serving” in the military or performing some other type of government-directed “community service.” Neoconservative Senator John McCain has introduced legislation creating a mandatory national service program very similar to Reich’s proposal. It is not surprising that both a prominent progressive and a leading neocon would support mandatory national service, as this is an issue that has long united authoritarians on the left and right.
Proponents of national service claim that young people have a moral obligation to give something back to society. But giving the government power to decide our moral obligations is an invitation to totalitarianism.
Mandatory national service is not just anti-liberty, it is un-American. Whether or not they admit it, supporters of mandatory national service do not believe that individuals have “inalienable rights.” Instead, they believe that rights are gifts from the government, and, since government is the source of our rights, government can abridge or even take away those rights whenever Congress decides.
Friends of Liberty!
I have a question for the many brilliant minds of the Daily Paul.
What is your favorite anti government quote?
When I think of anti government quotes these three come to my mind:
Government breaks your legs then hands you a crutch and says, “See if it weren’t for us, you wouldn’t be able to walk”. – Harry Browne
"Government is a disease masquerading as its own cure." – Robert LeFevre
"Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master." - George Washington
During President Barack Obama’s speech at a Maryland Democratic campaign rally Sunday, crowd members departed while he spoke — an action that “underscored his continuing unpopularity,”...
Hello DP, I am still fuming right now. My local community college just had a lockdown drill. This is not abnormal for my school. However, this time the reasoning for the lockdown drill was a group “protesters” that were “attempting to start a riot.” They had actors holding signs and yelling while police stood by. At this point the announcement came over the intercom for the lock down, and all the students were told to hide in a back room.
I’ve been asking myself: Why would they go through the trouble to create this fake scenario? Is this a demonstration of force against the First Amendment? Maybe an example of what will happen to you if you protest here? No one would have the opportunity to capture evidence of police misconduct if they were all quickly ushered into a back room.
I openly shared these concerns with the 40 or so students and faculty while we were locked in a dark room together. Most of them realized how ridiculous the entire situation was, but they were still quite apathetic about it. I attempted to ask the police captain some questions but I didn’t get much out of him he just replied with: “maybe you should come by my office sometime, but I’m going to be busy for the rest of the day.” I am still unsure if this invite was genuine or if the captain was simply deflecting. What questions should I ask this guy if I get another chance? What would you do DP Community?
Dial in to 2:44 to skip the rest of the BS:
Coulter elaborates: "I think it would have to be either Mitt Romney, or Ted Cruz."
I am pretty sure that other musicians here besides myself have taken notice of how Mr Ed Moran's Liberty Poems rhyme with a rhythm that could easily be put to music and made into a song for sharing Liberty. I think this has the potential to create a very popular song with a good message.
Mr Moran has agreed to use one of his poems and make an effort in this direction. He has also shared that he doesn't have the musical or vocal ability to do it himself but would enjoy working with those that have this ability to put a song together from one of his finely crafted works.
Seems like there’s been an awful lot of intolerance, hatred and trolling going on at the Daily Paul lately. I dread looking at the comment section anytime a topic has been posted having to do remotely with anything religious.
