About Liberty Candidates

It should not be that anyone's name can be put up here. There should be solid, verifiable qualifications/ characteristics of liberty candidates, even if they don't have a track record. Before they are promoted as a liberty candidate, there should be some verification that they are indeed a liberty candidate. How this can happen is another story. Not having a track record is ok, no history of raising taxes, of violating civil liberties.

Donors should be aware that there are limits on contributions, not just 2,500 per candidate/ but ceiling limits. This should be known before a decision is made as to who to donate to, it may be limited to 10 candidates. Potential donors should be reminded of this on a regular basis.

For some reason, we're expected to know every law that exists in America & in our state so we don't break it. We're supposed to know this when we're 18. There's no litmus test for them, as in the 10 commandments or rhyme or reason. C.U.R.E.


I'm having a purple day (seems my posts should be in purple) and I remember there was some feature that one could make the font purple, but I don't know how to do that trick.

So I thought, what color are my days? Dumb thought maybe, but I thought again, "Why not mood paper".. faded smiley face icon stationary, or puppies, or cannabis leaf, or ron paul blimp.. ??

Just an idea.. but I thought, if a user had the option of a stationary that could be cool.

Purple Days

Hi Granger,

I don't know what color day purple is.....is that like 'blue'? Or 'sunny' like yellow? I think it's pretty.

Jon says it's sarcastic: ;)


Hope your days are beautiful and bright!


[Mood/stationary may be hard to read. Your purple background is beauutiifull! ;)]

Messages for Jon and Michael


Thanks, Jon! Seems to be working now. :)

The clock was pretty. What was going on? Really curious...was bizarre.

I've been wanting to communicate privately with you for a long time.
Could you please email me your email and phone number?

And...Thanks for all your maintenance work the other night when Michael went to sleep. [:)] I tried to thank you right after but I think Michael's post was removed. :( Thanks for all your hard work and creative genius! :) Much appreciated!



Hope you had 'sweet dreams' while you sent poor Jon down....where? :)
(forgot what you said)

Please check your email. I'm trying to communicate with you about important stuff. (have add'l now)

Could you please email me your phone number and more direct email?

Thank you! FOR EVERYTHING! Things wouldn't be the same without you!


[Thanks to Mike, too. :)]

I see it.

That's all I needed to know.

What are your thoughts

on putting the Precious Metals thread on the front page of DP below where you have the buttons for "Daily Paul Radio" and "What DP-ers are eating" for easy access? And/or the Nightly Jam Session thread? Thanks.

Thanks for the idea.

This is being debated now in the Situation Room. Good idea.

He's the man.

Could you please do me a little favor?

Hi! I was working for a candidate for US House, under the assumption that he was a libertarian, but I left the campaign when I realized he was being dishonest about his political beliefs. He is a believer of big government, when it fits his beliefs. For example, he believes in mandatory military service for all 18-year-olds. As soon as I realized he was NOT a libertarian, I left his campaign. Unfortunately, I had already said nice things about him on the Daily Paul and solicited users for donations to his campaign. This was a mistake and I apologize. I edited all the old articles to warn Daily Paul users that he is a Benedict Arnold. Although, now that the articles have been marked as spam, the one that is on the front page of Google now links to the unpublished post.
Could you please change the working link: http://www.dailypaul.com/284322/libertarian-gardening-store-... with the now unpublished link that is on the front page of Google when you search his name? Located here: http://www.dailypaul.com/291225/george-brikho-liberty-candid...
I would really appreciate helping to get the message out there. I feel awful about the Daily Paul users who donated to this clown. And I feel awful about helping him launch his campaign. I would really appreciate it!

P.S. Keep up the great work! I LOVE THE DAILY PAUL!!!!!!!!

Any way page numbers can be listed at the top of a thread?

It's a small thing I know, but would be handy when going back several pages, instead of having to scroll down to the bottom in order to go to a previous page.
But please don't think I'm being picky. I think you guys do a fantastic job. My hat's off to ya'!

Please Explain

Hello Mods,

Quick question, Why was My post "Obama's Security Compromised" flagged and unpublished? It was a legitimate post. Our secret service allowed a schizo suffering from hallucinations to be within arms reach of our president.

Why unpublish this?


"I'm Ron Paul." - Ron Paul

Michael Nystrom's picture

I didn't understand it

There was no context. A picture and:

Ya know, it really bothered me that the Secret Service let someone so deranged get so close to our Commander in Chief.

Now don't get me wrong,I hate Obama just as much as the next guy, but this is unacceptable.

Secret Service Fail.

Didn't much care for this part, either:

I hate Obama just as much as the next guy,

That's a pretty sad statement that I don't really want here on the DP.

He's the man.

I guess I should have used the sarcasm brackets

Also I should have given some background about who it was that got so close to our president.


"I'm Ron Paul." - Ron Paul

Yeah, it is getting pretty spammy, I agree

Edit: temporary chat here until its fixed for anyone looking to chat.


Tools of war are not always obvious. The worst weapon is an idea planted in the mind of man. Prejudices can kill, suspicion can destroy, and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has an everlasting fallout all of its own.

This page is totally freezing on me

I tried to embed the chart in the article in my comment, and now the page freezes when I try to open or edit my comment. Its also frozen the comments section in my account.


Thanks for all you guys do!

I'm sorry I had to do an amputation

I wasn't able to get the page to load either, or see the comment.

I was able to delete the comment, so the page will load now at least. Sorry! But the thread is working now.

He's the man.

howdy mods

Noticed that this post of mine, with my interview with G. Edward Griffin was unpublished now?


I don't know if it was a mistake or if there's really a problem with me posting it, let me know! Thanks!

UPDATE: Still not sure why this was unpublished...just want to know if it's something I did wrong so I don't make the same mistake in the future! Thanks!

Looks like that was a mistake - sorry!

Mods have a link at the bottom of every post that will unpublish it with one click. Looks like it got hit by accident.

Please accept my apologies. I just republished it.

He's the man.

no worries, and thanks!

much appreciated, Michael!

And remember, you have an open invitation to come on the show if you ever feel like having a chat for all the DP ears to hear... ;)

Thanks Steve - that is an ad

I don't want the board flooded with peoples ads, and I don't want people saying, "You let that ad on, why not my ad?"

The board is for discussion, not for ads, so the best course of action is to disallow all.

Re the bookshelf,

I don't understand what I'm doing wrong such that sometimes my amazon-linked books show up, sometimes they don't.

For instance, this morning around 7am I linked The Call Of The Wild, which didn't make it. (There are already a few on the bookshelf from today, posted later than mine.) http://www.dailypaul.com/283803/im-looking-for-a-good-read-w...

Thanks for any insight you might have here.

There is a response

in the post body from the admin that did it:

Already posted - thanks

Some place it in comments, some place it directly in the post as a note.
