Just wanted the Forums to know that BuddyRey aka Philip Barrett Reynolds left this world today at the age of 31. He introduced me to Ron Paul and this forum in 2007. He passed during surgery for a brain infection. He was a great patriot and a lover of liberty and will surely be missed by all that came to know him. He was the kindest, most gentle, friendly, accepting human being one could ever meet.

I am sorry to hear it. No matter how one slices it, that is way too young. My elder daughter will turn 30 in July. I could not imagine anything like that happening to her.

Wherever they may be, my thoughts will be with his family.

One of my favorite all-time posters. Such a good man with a good heart. He is already deeply missed, and will only be missed more in the future. :(

I did not know him well IRL really, we crossed paths a couple times, and he came out once to help me canvass for my State Senate race and another time at some event I spoke at, but GOP stuff and conventions were not really his thing, and given that I have taken the electoral path we didn't really run in the same circles.

I am a bit devastated, because I've kept telling myself for so long that I wanted to go shake his hand and say hello, and never managed to make that happen. :'(

As I understand it, he was steadfast in faith, and rests in God now. God speed ye good and faithful soul into your reward, and may we meet again on the other side. He was taken too young, and he was taken too early; but his suffering in this lost and dying world is over.

A place is missing in my heart now. Rest in peace.

Like the dust that settles all around me
I must find a new home
The ways and holes that used to give me shelter
Are all as one to me now
But I, I would search everywhere just to hear your call
And walk upon stranger roads than this one
In a world I used to know before

I miss you more

Than the sun reflecting off my pillow
Bringing the warmth of new life
And the sounds that echoed all around me
I caught a glimpse of in the night
But now, now I've lost everything
I give to you my soul
The meaning of all that I believed before
Escapes me in this world of none, no thing, no one

And I would search everywhere
Just to hear your call
And walk upon stranger roads than this one
In a world I used to know before
For now I've lost everything
I give to you my soul
The meaning of all that I believed before
Escapes me in this world of none

I miss you more

In the Name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Lord have mercy.

Almighty God and our Father, fount of time and eternity, who by Thy power hast set a term of our life on earth, and through Thine only-begotten Son dost grant unto us, through resurrection, immortal life and a kingdom which cannot be moved, do Thou remember Thy servant Phillip who hath fallen asleep in the hope of resurrection unto life eternal, we beseech Thee, hear and have mercy.

O Father, holy and good, for as by the offence of one man, our forefather, sin entered into the world, and death by sin, so may we be inheritors of eternal life by the righteousness of Thine all-perfect Son, and do Thou give rest to the soul of Thy servant Phillip and preserve it unto the blessed life that is with Thee, we beseech Thee, hear and have mercy.

O Lord God, Father Almighty, in the name of Thy beloved Son, our hope, Who gave Himself for a ransom to death wherein we were held fast and continue so to this day, sold under sin: Do Thou loose the grievous shackles of our death, make us sons of resurrection, and receive into Thy rest, (where all Thy saints have found repose) the soul of Thy servant Phiilp we beseech Thee, hear and have mercy.

O Lord Jesus Christ, Eternal God, Who dost uphold all things by the power of Thy word, Who didst make Thyself of no reputation, and took upon Thee the form of a servant, wast crucified and descended into hell; Who opened the way of resurrection for all flesh slain by sin and in the bondage of corruption, give rest to the soul of Thy servant Phillip who hath set his hope in Thee, our Maker, the Author of our being, and our God, we beseech Thee, hear and have mercy.

O Lord Jesus Christ, Who in the days of Thy sojourn with us in the flesh, and Thy saving passion didst cry unto Thy Father: Holy Father, I will that they also, whom Thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which Thou hast given me: for Thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world: Mercifully now receive Thy servant Phillip who is come before Thee, and accept him as a partaker of Thine imperishable glory, we beseech Thee, hear and have mercy.

May Christ our true God who is risen from the dead, by the prayers of His most holy Mother, of the holy and all-glorious apostles, of our righteous and holy fathers, and of all the saints, establish in the mansions of the righteous, the soul of his servant Phillip. Grant him rest in Abrahamís bosom, and number him with the righteous, and have mercy on us, Lord Christ, for You are good and love mankind.

Lord have mercy
Lord have mercy
Lord have mercy

O God of spirits and of all flesh, Who hast trampled down death and overthrown the Devil, and given life to Thy world, do Thou, the same Lord, give rest to the souls of Thy departed servant in a place of brightness, a place of refreshment, a place of repose, where all sickness, sighing, and sorrow have fled away. Pardon every transgression which he has committed, whether by word or deed or thought. For Thou art a good God and lovest mankind; because there is no man who lives yet does not sin, for Thou only art without sin, Thy righteousness is to all eternity, and Thy word is truth.

For Thou are the resurrection and the life and the repose of Thy departed servant Phillip O Christ our God; and unto Thee we ascribe glory, together with Thine eternal Father, and Thy most holy, good and life-giving Spirit; now, and forever: world without end. Amen.

He had a brain abscess in two places. The neurosurgeon said he would not survive with antibiotics only, so the surgery was to insert a tube into the brain to drain out the infection.

06-13-2015, 08:13 AM
I have a very strong dislike for her, and here's why...because Elizabeth Warren talks about government exactly the same way that Mike Huckabee talks about Jesus. The difference being that Mike Huckabee's faith in Jesus - no matter how strong - can help or hurt nobody besides Mike Huckabee himself; yet history is rife with bloody reminders that one misguided idealogue's faith in government can spell death and destruction for millions.


Just a note on the title of the article: I'm getting to a point now where I bristle at the use of the "hawk vs. dove" analogy. It's much too simplistic a binary to try and stuff the full continuum of geopolitical thought into; especially since it means that those of us who are non-interventionists will get lumped in with out-and-out pacifists. We need some kind of new imagery to describe a Paulian foreign policy. Maybe porcupine? Or bumblebee? But whatever it is, we've got to find a way to reframe and revise this popular but erroneous narrative that you either have to be a foaming-at-the-mouth American nationalist who supports all wars at all times, or some kind of naive, disarmed bootlicker who believes that diplomacy can solve everything.


It should be seen by every libertarian in the public sphere as a life-defining honor to end up on one of those statist media "enemy lists." I'll make it one day, dangit.

If you didn't make the list, my friend, it wasn't because your erudition was lacking, nor because your heart wasn't in the right place. Maybe you just didn't get caught; maybe you've been on the list all along and just didn't know it.

This fight was more fun with you in it.

I don't think it's morbid. I'm also curious because it's all so sudden. He just posted here like last week....no indication that anything was wrong.

06-13-2015, 08:46 AM
I am very sadden and emptied to hear this and am grateful for him to have been with us.

Barrett first caught my attention and become an instant celebrity to me when I put two and two together that he did a youtube v-log type video in early 2007where he started off talking about being upset as a Hillary Clinton supporter and then revealed that he changed camps to Ron Paul. If I remember the video correctly, he took his Hillary shirt off to show off his Ron Paul shirt under it... maybe I'm off the mark on that as he later pulled the video from youtube. I was just trying to find some reference to it but no luck yet. I'd love to see that again if anyone knows anything about it. His style and spunk was something else, he will truly be missed.

As hard as it is, I am very grateful that Dianne was able to inform us, I would hate to just have someone like him disappear with no one ever knowing anything. Everyone else needs to please consider this too across your whole "online" being, because YOU DO MATTER. Think about that-- echoing Barrett's words seems to be most fitting, "I Love Each and Every One of You! (http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?220320-I-Love-Each-and-Every-One-of-You)"

Rest in Peace, my friend.

Barrett had a seizure on Tuesday morning and was rushed by ambulance to the emergency room. He was then transferred to Presbyterian Hospital in downtown Charlotte that same morning. After a battery of tests and torture it was decided he had to have surgery. He was brought to the operating room around 11:40 yesterday morning.

They gave him some type of drug to make his blood really thick to reduce excessive bleeding during the surgery. Once he received the anesthesia his heart stopped and for some reason they couldn't get enough oxygen through his veins. I am thinking it is because the thickened blood wasn't allowing the oxygen to flow properly.

A brain abscess is a rare, life-threatening infection of the brain. Local sources may include ear infections, a dental abscess, infection of the paranasal sinuses, or epidural abscess, while remote sources may include infections in the lung, heart or kidney.

A brain abscess may also be the result of a head trauma or surgical procedure. In children cerebral abscesses are usually linked to congenital heart disease.

Brain abscesses may affect people of any age, but more commonly occur in people in their 30s and 40s. Traditionally, they were disproportionately diagnosed in young people - changes in vaccination practices, treatment of child infections, and the AIDS pandemic shifted the average age of infection upwards. Males have double the risk of developing a brain abscess compared to females


http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/185614.php


People with weakened immune system have a higher risk of developing a brain abscess caused by a blood borne infection. Examples include people with HIV/AIDS, infants under the age of six months, patients receiving chemotherapy, individuals on long-term steroid use, and organ transplant recipients who take immunosuppressant drugs to prevent organ rejection.

The most common blood-borne infections known to cause a brain abscess are:

Cyanotic heart disease - a heart defect, present at birth (congenital), that results in low blood oxygen levels.
Pneumonia, bronchiectasis and other lung infections and conditions. Bronchiectasis is the permanent widening (dilatation) of the large air tubes which begin at the bottom of the trachea and branch into the lungs (bronchi) - it can result in recurrent respiratory infections, as well as other serious illnesses.
Peritonitis - inflammation of the tissue layer of cells lining the inner wall of the abdomen and pelvis (peritoneum); and other abdominal infections.
Cystitis - inflammation of the bladder; and other infections located in the pelvis.

If you can share where he will be buried, I can add him to Find A Grave.

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&CRid=2151953

He was buried in the Shiloh Truelight Church cemetary. Here is a link: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&CRid=2151953

Philip Barrett Reynolds, born 04/22/1984, died 06/12/2015 . He had a beautiful service. Roughly 15 minutes after his burial there was a five minute downpour of rain. Barrett has an Aunt who is a 100% American Indian living on a reservation in Okeechobee, Florida. As soon as it started raining she said "In our world, when it rains after a burial, it washes the footprints away so the spirit has a clear path to heaven". I thought that was beautiful.

Amen.


In the Name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Lord have mercy.

Almighty God and our Father, fount of time and eternity, who by Thy power hast set a term of our life on earth, and through Thine only-begotten Son dost grant unto us, through resurrection, immortal life and a kingdom which cannot be moved, do Thou remember Thy servant Phillip who hath fallen asleep in the hope of resurrection unto life eternal, we beseech Thee, hear and have mercy.

O Father, holy and good, for as by the offence of one man, our forefather, sin entered into the world, and death by sin, so may we be inheritors of eternal life by the righteousness of Thine all-perfect Son, and do Thou give rest to the soul of Thy servant Phillip and preserve it unto the blessed life that is with Thee, we beseech Thee, hear and have mercy.

O Lord God, Father Almighty, in the name of Thy beloved Son, our hope, Who gave Himself for a ransom to death wherein we were held fast and continue so to this day, sold under sin: Do Thou loose the grievous shackles of our death, make us sons of resurrection, and receive into Thy rest, (where all Thy saints have found repose) the soul of Thy servant Phiilp we beseech Thee, hear and have mercy.

O Lord Jesus Christ, Eternal God, Who dost uphold all things by the power of Thy word, Who didst make Thyself of no reputation, and took upon Thee the form of a servant, wast crucified and descended into hell; Who opened the way of resurrection for all flesh slain by sin and in the bondage of corruption, give rest to the soul of Thy servant Phillip who hath set his hope in Thee, our Maker, the Author of our being, and our God, we beseech Thee, hear and have mercy.

O Lord Jesus Christ, Who in the days of Thy sojourn with us in the flesh, and Thy saving passion didst cry unto Thy Father: Holy Father, I will that they also, whom Thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which Thou hast given me: for Thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world: Mercifully now receive Thy servant Phillip who is come before Thee, and accept him as a partaker of Thine imperishable glory, we beseech Thee, hear and have mercy.

May Christ our true God who is risen from the dead, by the prayers of His most holy Mother, of the holy and all-glorious apostles, of our righteous and holy fathers, and of all the saints, establish in the mansions of the righteous, the soul of his servant Phillip. Grant him rest in Abrahamís bosom, and number him with the righteous, and have mercy on us, Lord Christ, for You are good and love mankind.

Lord have mercy
Lord have mercy
Lord have mercy

O God of spirits and of all flesh, Who hast trampled down death and overthrown the Devil, and given life to Thy world, do Thou, the same Lord, give rest to the souls of Thy departed servant in a place of brightness, a place of refreshment, a place of repose, where all sickness, sighing, and sorrow have fled away. Pardon every transgression which he has committed, whether by word or deed or thought. For Thou art a good God and lovest mankind; because there is no man who lives yet does not sin, for Thou only art without sin, Thy righteousness is to all eternity, and Thy word is truth.

For Thou are the resurrection and the life and the repose of Thy departed servant Phillip O Christ our God; and unto Thee we ascribe glory, together with Thine eternal Father, and Thy most holy, good and life-giving Spirit; now, and forever: world without end. Amen.

They gave him some type of drug to make his blood really thick to reduce excessive bleeding during the surgery. Once he received the anesthesia his heart stopped and for some reason they couldn't get enough oxygen through his veins. I am thinking it is because the thickened blood wasn't allowing the oxygen to flow properly.

Not the time or place to comment on this...

From a quick search Jacaranda trees grow in zones 9-11. Mint Hill N.C. would be a zone 7. So, unfortunately, not very condusive.

Lets all collectively remember one thing, not how he died, but how he lived. BuddyRey / Phillip was a true Patriot. He believed in something that was greater than himself, and that was our ability to come together to stand against Tyranny and to make this world a better place for everyone. His actions have had an impact on this world, and that is what he needs to be remembered for. Even if those actions were merely to introduce Dianne to Ron Paul, that by itself is sewing the seeds of Liberty and Freedom. I believe we can all agree that the best course of action for each of us is to determine our own fates. That is what makes him a Patriot. Fighting for Liberty without Violence. And that is worth our rememberance of him.
