Hey Mike! Can you give us any insight to the content or direction of the new site? I can barely look at the headlines here anymore. Please give me some hope for an approach outside of politics.
I would like to know what DPer's think about Robert David Steele's latest initiative to break the two party tyranny at the 2016 election.
Robert's argument is that since the current two party system is broken and corrupt. The ONLY way any issue might receive a fair hearing is if we FIRST achieve Electoral Reform and restore integrity to our government.
In fact #ElectoralReform is the ONE THING we can and all should be able to converge on, Progressives, conservatives and libertarians alike. His plans make very interesting reading.
Do you remember the optimism, the promise of the internet in the mid to late 90's? It was a whole new thing - the ability to connect to any other person on the planet, directly, without any intermediation.
How has it worked out?
Has the internet just devolved into the new TV? Mindless, useless entertainment?
A cheap fundraising tools for politicians?
A propaganda bullhorn for competing ideologies?
Does the internet still hold promise?
If so, what is the Promise of the Internet for you?
Greetings fellow dp'ers. Thank you for taking the time to read this post.
I have been considering moving to another state and have my eyes on Arizona at the moment. I have done my research. Yet I wish to ask one thing which I am struggling with. CPS. What is up with the huge spike in number of foster children? And what is behind Gov. Jan Brewers new executive order on abolishing CPS and setting up the new stand alone cabinet?
Is this a good thing? Or will it result in even higher numbers of children taken out of the home and/or violate parental rights?
Remember the Harlem Shake? When I first heard that the opening line, "con los terroristas" meant, "with the terrorists," I couldn't shake (sorry) the idea that wouldn't watching such a thing give the NSA some cover for infiltrating your computer?
What are the thresholds for being invited to the media hosted primary debates? Wasn't it that a candidate had to have a certain percentage of national polls?
Speaking of Terms and Conditions, what should the T's & C's be for the New Daily Paul? (The new Daily Paul won't be called the Daily Paul, btw.)
befree raised an interesting point:
oooh, I wonder

This is a fun group to ask things. My wife and I have been considering this question for about a year now. Everywhere has its advantages and disadvantages so by nature this question will have a somewhat opinionated answer as things that may be important to some are less important to others. I want to hear your pitch either way. Here are two.
So with silver falling below 16 dollars an ounce i would like some advice from the DP metals community. When silver fell below 17 recently i added my first 100 oz bar now i'm adding another. My question is when would be a good time to really dive in and convert my cash to silver? will it keep going lower? Also is the rise in the dollar spurring this fall in silver price?
I'm seeking the knowledge of the DPer's here who have so often impressed me with their resourcefulness.
I have a problem. About a year ago, the contractor working for the Allegan County Road Commission broke my mailbox post off at the ground while operating a brush hog. I contacted the Commission and after some wrangling and denial, had a new box and post installed to replace the one that was destroyed.
I need Help. Can Someone Help Provide The Link To Alternative Cancer Treatment Links. From January? I ThinkSubmitted by Daryl on Fri, 03/13/2015 - 20:17
I lost my father and Brother to cancer, in addition, I lost my (2) cousins' to cancer ,they lost a father and now their Mother and her daughter (my cousin) now have cancer. My Aunt has terminal cancer!
I think it was in January that this site had a very long list of alternative cancer treatments and videos.
It was the most comprehensive list I have seen.
Can someone please help me find the Link?
I remember even Michael Nystrom made comments.
Here in Canada, it is illegal to wear body armour unless "permitted by the pigs".
I don't know what the laws are in the States but this is completely insane.
So people are not allowed to protect themselves if they so choose from the Pigs and other violent criminals?
I am almost at the end of my rope with this corporate BullCrap world. I won't even vote anymore, it's no use, every stinking politician is a crook and they only serve the military, bankster, industrial satanic cabal that has usurped our once great countries.
Social democracy, a liberal website, has written many articles attacking Austrian economics. They have a page wish assembles all these articles. Can you help point out the mistakes they made because many of their articles seem to be convincing. They always seem to rely on data which seems cheery piked or flawed. It would be great to refute many of the points they make on the depression of 1920-21 and the great depression.
As I was talking with an acquaintance of mine yesterday, we got into a brief discussion about prisons in America and how we have such a large prison population. I stated that I was disgusted that a supposedly "free" nation incarcerates so many, especially for non-violent offenses and violations of regulation. His response floored me and highlighted to me how much work we still have to do to spread the idea of liberty.
Yes, I'm doing it. I'm going to "that" level. But, it seems in todays world, the only way to win, or sway a persons position on a candidate is to completely destroy their whole positive outlook on the chosen "victim"...er candidate (we witnessed this with Ron last election cycle). So, I've decided to start to compile a list of "smears" against Scott Walker, so his dreams about a rise to fame and his presidential aspirations are destroyed/annihilated by littering social media outlets and the email boxes of radio/tv news pundits.
