Can "we" please stop demanding what "we" should do?

Why don't you do what you want to do, and let others do what they want to do?

...can we PLEASE drop the 9/11 stuff, and GET ON with electing Statesmen to representative government in 2014 and 2016?

I fully support your desire and your efforts to work towards electing what you call "Statesmen" to represent government in 2014 and 2016.

What I would suggest is that you put your energy in that direction, and don't waste and diffuse it by attacking others who share the same goal as you.

So, it is nice to know that you have "been there and done that." I have as well. I have gone down the 911 rabbit hole, and I have also gone down the "Lets elect statesman to public office" rabbit hole. Why not give others the same opportunity to investigate and see which path is right for them? Why do you feel the need that because YOU have already "been there and done that" that no one else should have that opportunity?

In other words, why are you trying to dictate to others based on your own experiences? Your experiences are yours alone. Why try to impose that framework onto others who have nothing do do with you. That's what tyrants do, and that is what you're acting like every time you have an outburst like this.

This is the way I see it: Everyone here on the DP is friends. They're all my friends, including you. One of the things friends give one another is space and freedom to be who they are. They give them the benefit of the doubt. They afford to them tolerance, something you don't see on TV - the Hannity show, or the Rush Libaugh show.

Why do you want to imitate what you see on TV? Why do you want to attack others of like mind? There are not many of us around.

The Daily Paul is NOT an arm/asset of prison planet or

That is correct. And it is not an arm/asset of the RNC, or the MIC, or of Rand Paul Inc. or of anything else. It is independent. We look at everything.

That is not going to change. If that makes you uncomfortable, then you might be more happy somewhere else.

Like I said: Everyone here is friends. If you want to turn someone here into an enemy, then you can leave.
