I was worried that, with Ron Paul's poor 2012 showing, the Paul news site The Daily Paul would dry up and blow away. Which is a shame; they're now my go-to site for unintentional hilarity. But good news! The Daily Paul is here to stay.
Ron Paul was denied the nomination by the RNC. Jesse Benton has gone his own way. Gary Johnson wasn't endorsed. Rand Paul hasn't been dubbed the new boss. Ron Paul isn't running third-party.
Shouldn't these things mean that the Daily Paul would dry up and disappear?
But in fact, there has been excellent content and discussion. The grass roots are growing into a friggin' tree here. There is hope for Ron Paul to run again in 2016, and people are keeping their eyes on other important offices up for grabs.
Do you know what this reminds me of? Hope. I don't mean Obama "hope". I mean something more like "Jakob the Liar" kind of hope...though I think we're a bit more optimistic.
