Yes, I hope so too

But you saw the division caused by the Johnson people, and the anti-Johnson people.

The same thing will happen with the Rand people, and the anti-Rand people, unfortunately.

With Ron Paul, everyone was united. And those who were not, I kicked them off and banned them. That is why the DP was a nice oasis for Ron Paul supporters on the internet for the past 5 years. It was a pleasant walled garden of sorts.

But creating and maintaining such a walled garden is a lot of work. A lot of stress. And in the end, I'm not sure what good it does or did. It created a false sense of reality - a reality for Ron Paul people that was not true.

At any rate, it was a learning experience for me, and I'm not going to do it again. It is time for me to move on, and I hope that people understand that.

At the same time, I encourage others - those with the passion and belief, like the OP - to go create something new, and I wish them all the best.

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.
