I wish you well

Good luck with that project. And I look forward to visiting you on the web, at your new, dedicated Rand Paul site, wherever that may be. It definitely won't be the Daily Paul, for the reasons I outlined in my comments below.

I don't want anyone to have the wrong impression about what the DP will become, or what role it will serve to the end discussed in the OP. If you want to hit the ground running on that project, I suggest you begin elsewhere, and ASAP. Being first will give you an advantage. And don't be shy about banning the Anti-Randites. That is how you build walled garden of support. Unfortunately, it creates a warped sense of reality, such as the Daily Paul created for Ron Paul supporters.

There are a lot of Rand Paul haters out there, just as there are a lot of Ron Paul haters out there. Just check the comments in any other website that is not the DP or the Ron Paul Forums. I ended up banning a lot of anti-Rand people from the site during his senate race. It was a real headache.

I was willing to do it for his dad. But in the end, it wasn't even about his dad. It was about the principles. And I'm still willing to do it for that - to continue the DP. But not for some politician. Not for Rand. There's no point, because you don't know where he stands. So you might end up spending a lot of time, and then in the end, you find it was all wasted.

So, In other words, to be more succinct, I'm not with you, and neither is the DP.

But best of luck.

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