He couldn't go via US courts because the site was registered from another country.
Ron Paul had a choice. He could have done this the private way, instead he decided to pull a fit and get a UN agency to take the website by force. For
5 years this website was operating, 5 years
, and there's no doubt that he's known about it's existence all this time, he never raised an
issue until after
he retired from congress, and after
he no longer required campaign support. It was operating with his blessing, so
it's rather silly for him to turn around, claim this website has been operating unjustly in his name and without his permission given these facts, he
can't simply try and claim ownership of it now.
An offer was made to him for $250,000, he and his rabid supporters think it's too much. Tough.
Houses are getting expensive these days, food
is getting expensive, there are many things in the market that are by definition overpriced, but this is the way of the market. Ron Paul has plenty of
money and plenty of supporters, so he could have paid that amount or he could have raised the money through donations from his supporters. He had a
and yet he decided to go through the United Nations instead. It's hypocritical and many people are starting to see him for what he really
is, a fraud.
Secondly the site owners never donated anything to RP's campaign and kept saying they would.
They made money OFF OF HIS NAME!
So? It's their website and they owned and operated it for years without much or no issue raised by Ron Paul himself, so what's your beef? If it's
their website they can do whatever the hell they want with it. You know, the libertarian way?
Secondly look at some of the hypocritical posts saying RonPaul bots or this or that when the left was very anti-war during Bush and now voted
for Obama for a second term after he's a bigger warhawk than Bush ever was.
I'm what you call a left winger, I didn't vote for Obama these elections.
