Fonzdrew: a little bit about me as my last post on the Daily Paul

My real name is David, and I was born and raised in Southern California. I was raised in a Christian family, and went from public schools to private.

My love is music, and I started a gothic rock band in the mid 1990's and went on to compose music for film students at Chapman University. I become a Bush neocon supporter during the Bush vs. Gore election and jumped for joy over the invasion of Iraq. I hated Ron Paul during his run in 2007, and booed him during the debate. I have always had a feeling of conspiracy with 911 and thought something was off with our political system, but chose to keep them to myself. One thing I always had on the back of my mind was "why does everything seem to get worse, and why do we continue to lose freedoms no matter who gets elected, and with every election?"

One night alone while watching videos of 911, I came across the Alex Jones videos "the 911 chronicles" with Luke Rudkowski and at that moment, I gave into all my fears and learned to except what I believed was wrong. It was then, in late 2008 that I went back and learned more about the man I had hated so much, and realized how wrong I was about him, and it was then that Ron Paul kicked me out of my coma, and I was awake and free.

This led me here, to the Daily Paul, and it gave me a voice to help awake those who were like me. I fight back tears as I write this, and they are tears of joy, cause I never knew how much this site meant to me until it was clear it was the end.

Nevada ~ Bundy Ranch ~ Action Needed


After receiving intense opposition, bill AB408 is still gaining momentum in the legislature. Several legislators that were not sure about it before are looking now to support it. Even I was loosing hope, but have regained much over the last few days. The Nevada Legal Bureau (LCB) appears to be set out to sabotage the bill and has caused us much grief throughout this process. I will inform you about those details later, but for now it is time to act again.

New Executive Order Gives Government Legal Authority to Seize An Individual’s Funds Without Prior Notice

For someone who once taught Constitutional Law at the University of Chicago Law School, President Obama sure knows how to walk all over the Constitution. Barack Obama’s latest assault on the Constitution comes in the form of an Executive Order that would prohibit donations to the likes of Edward Snowden and allows for the government to confiscate an individual’s funds without notice.

The Executive Order is titled “Blocking the Property of Certain Persons Engaging in Significant Malicious Cyber-enabled Activities.” The EO declares a national emergency to deal with the threat of

To all my friends at the Daily Paul (nearly everyone here...)

Thanks for the hope. Thanks for the heated discussions. Thanks for listening. Thanks for sharing.

We have made a difference. We ARE making a difference. People are thinking twice now when told something by the goons and "question authority" is making a comeback (thanks Timothy Leary).

Whether the "new site" becomes our favorite habitat or not I hope we can meet up again somewhere. The Ron Paul boost to the liberty movement was a unique event in history and none of us can see what the future will bring but we can guess...

Best wishes and God bless!

General Mills Forced To Remove Artificial Chemicals Amid Failing Sales

Farewell Daily Paul

Today I was in a checkout line. The couple behind me and the cashier all sounded like me when I was in the early stages of my ultimate conversion to anarchism. The look on the husband's face was anger while the two ladies were also visibly serious about their disdain for Sam. I'm not sure that they understood how I could chuckle and smile while still agreeing with them. Truth be told, the reason I was smiling so broadly was because, five years ago, checkout line conversations weren't so radical.

After Obama's cybersecurity order threatens Snowden fund, bitcoin donations spike

A new executive order signed into law this week by the president has one online community up in arms, after its loose wording effectively ruled out donating to Edward Snowden and others.

In a post on Reddit's Bitcoin subreddit, members pledged to donate to the whistleblower's relief fund, despite the wording of the new executive order suggesting that doing so was illegal.

Small but meaningful favor to ask DP community

Hi everybody-

Though it's been a little while since I've posted and the DPs days are (sadly but justly understood to be) numbered, I've become a Candidate for City Council here in Philadelphia, while also starting a new political Party.

Having also just created a new website, if you have a favorite song/poem/speech/story/image about conscientious freedom, individual triumph or divine love, I'd love to share it on the Campaign trail!

Why ‘The Nation’ Is Suing the Federal Government

The NSA is monitoring almost all of our international communications. This is a fundamental violation of First and Fourth Amendment rights.

The Editors | The Nation | March 31, 2015

One of the most disturbing revelations from whistleblower Edward Snowden is that the National Security Agency copies and searches the contents of virtually every text-based Internet communication that you send overseas or receive from abroad. This includes e-mails, instant messages, search-engine history and the websites you visit. The agency does so whether or not you or the person you’re communicating with has done anything wrong, and whether or not either party is a specific “target” of the NSA. Furthermore, if the agency believes your message contains information relating to the foreign affairs of the United States—in the NSA’s overly broad terms, “foreign intelligence information”—it may hold on to it indefinitely.

This massive, dragnet surveillance is a fundamental violation of the Fourth Amendment, which protects our right to privacy, and the First Amendment, which protects freedom of expression and association. The government is collecting these private communications without any individualized suspicion and without obtaining a warrant from a judicial authority. For these reasons, The Nation has joined the ACLU’s suit against the National Security Agency and the Department of Justice, filed this March in federal district court in Maryland, where the NSA is headquartered. Fellow plaintiffs include the Wikimedia Foundation, Human Rights Watch, PEN American Center, the Global Fund for Women and other civil society, legal and media organizations.
