    Crap, they had to use Ron Paul picture in their buffoonery. This cannot be good for anything

    The continuing usurpation of Paul by trump, engineered by TPTB, willingly implemented by Dr. Paul's "supporters."

    There is no positive association between Paul and trump in reality. They are political and ideological enemies. This fallacious association, a bowel movement on the Ron Paul legacy, may never be cleaned off.
    Partisan politics, misleading or emotional bill titles, and 4D chess theories are manifestations of the same liethat the text of the Constitution, the text of legislation, and plain facts do not matter; what matters is what you want to believe. From this comes hypocrisy. And where hypocrisy thrives, virtue recedes. Without virtue, liberty dies. - Justin Amash, March 2018

    That's funny stuff. Wonder how long they've been waiting to launch that.

    No, I was talking about this site. RPF was running slow last night. It was lagging.

    And just the message that came with it is just as disgusting as the association between the two. "Get in Fagg0t"? why not say put some message about Hillary's corruption. I want to believe that this is an inside job to get DU supporter to dislike Ron Paul and the third party movement but seeing how some posters above think its cool to act like a maniac to their opponent, I can actually see a Trump supporter pulling this stunt.

    Well we know that all is fair, unless it's your candidate's supporters that get hacked. I just laugh at the Trump propaganda spammers here, knowing that in a few hours, they will be spamming how the election was rigged and stolen from them, while they tacitly approve things like this. Just goes to prove that both sides are full of $#@!. I wrote in Ron again and have no doubt that was the correct choice.

    I wonder if anyone after watching that rubbish video said, maybe I shouldn't vote for Hillary, I will now vote for Trump? vs how many people said "Oh god, that is awful. Honey go get the keys, we are going to the polling station now to vote against Trump."

    Some people just have zero social awareness and actually cannot realize when they are hurting their cause. Ofc I am saying this assuming this was not an inside job. Good thing is that when they whine about poll rigging, no serious person would entertain their whinning. They are going to lose and only Trump supporters would be oblivious about the reason why.

    I think he wants to break bread with them. The people in that forum are insane. They make Free Republic look normal.

    * See my visitor message area for caveats related to my posting history here.
    * Also, I have effectively retired from all social media including posting here and are basically opting out of anything to do with national politics or this country on federal or state level and rather focusing locally. I may stop by from time to time to discuss philosophy on a general level related to Libertarian schools of thought and application in the real world.

    FNC just had a segment saying they expect cyber attacks after the results in retaliation against the winner. They said if Hillary wins the Russians may take down Goldman Sachs. So at least there is a bright spot tonight if Hillary wins.

    I don't see the comedic value especially not in the tasteless message that came with the hack. Also I am annoyed by anyone who tires to associate Trump with Putin or Ron Paul. Sorry but I am not having a laugh.

    I dont think that there will be any curtailing of Donald Trump as president, he said. "He controls the media, he controls the sentiment [and] he controls everybody. Hes the one who will resort to executive orders more so than [President] Obama ever used them." - Ron Paul

    Around 4:30pm on Tuesday November 8, Democratic Underground was hacked, apparently by a supporter of Donald Trump. This person clearly knew what they were doing, and despite our best efforts we have not yet been able to resolve the issues caused by the hack.

    We do not believe that any member data has been compromised. And we are confident that donor data has not been compromised because that information is handled by PayPal and never passes through to our servers. But at this time we are unable to bring our discussion forum online.

    The hack was clearly aimed to cause maximum disruption on our busiest night of the year, and we deeply regret that we won't be able to spend election night with our great community of members. We ask for your patience while we continue to work to fix this problem, and while we do not have a time frame we will do our best to get DU back online as soon as possible.

    If anyone has any information about the hack, or has knowledge that might help us to fix it, please feel free to contact us: admin@democraticunderground.com

    We will be posting updates on Facebook and Twitter.

    We are deeply disappointed that this has happened. But we'll be back.

    Wow, surprised they were not able to get back online on such a big night for their site tonight.

    It's an absolutely brilliant one-two combo. Take away their safe space and trigger the hell out of them in one fell swoop.

    It's funny alright but it's also the kind of intimidation that shouldn't become the new norm.

    Ruh Roh....

    UPDATE 11/9/2016 1:00PM ET

    We have now come to believe it is possible that the hacker may have been able to gain access to certain member information on our server, including: Usernames, email addresses, and IP addresses. Passwords were not as easily accessible, and at this point we do not know if it was possible for the hacker to access them...

    We are not going to bring our website back online until we believe that we are no longer vulnerable to attack and our members' user information is secure. Unfortunately we do not know how long this process will take, and it could possibly take days...
