I turn the question back to you.

I'd ask you all to do some self reflection about what you have been posting here. Is it factual? or just theory? Does it help promote liberty?

Where is the factual basis of your assertion that the Daily Paul is becoming "more fringe"?

You talk about people posting about Sandy Hook and Fake Actors, but that was banished from here long ago. Considering that there is a huge "Rethink 911" billboard in Times Square now, I'd say that particular topic is moving beyond fringe.

So you've got a theory, and you use your theory to warn people not to post about 'theories.'

Weird.

But again, I direct your argument back at yourself.

Again I ask you to reflect on what you've been posting, and more importantly what good, or lack there of it has been doing for this revolution. The people are ready for the ideas of free markets and smaller governments. They don't need unsupported theories about secret societies. They need knowledge about how capitalism works. I propose we give them that knowledge.

And there is that word "we" again. Just who is "we?"

May I remind you that there is one person, and only one person who's actions you have control over, and that is yourself. If, as you assert, "the people" (whoever they are) are ready for the ideas of free markets and smaller governments, then stop complaining and get to preaching!

Whenever I see a post from snakepit22, I'm like, "Oh, here we go again - another big complaint about the Daily Paul."

Through the years, I have found that many people who complain about others are generally blind to their own flawed behavior that they complain about in others. I'm not the first to notice that, however. A wise man pointed that out over 2,000 years ago.

Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.

Look at this thread. What have you accomplished besides putting people on the defensive by kicking a hornet's nest? Look at the brawl YOU started. And talking about a "fringe" topic no less! You've achieved exactly what you rail against!

Am I the only one who finds this ironic?

How does your naval-gazing theory contribute to what you say you want to achieve?

You are just contributing to what you say you don't like. And I bet you still can't even see it.

But that is what we're here for at the Daily Paul. Education. Education comes in many different guises. Sometimes those who need the most education are those who already think they know it all.

My advice to you is to stop complaining about others, and take positive, proactive steps to realize the world that you wish to see.

I will continue to pray for your spiritual evolution and enlightenment.
