A serious ethical and legal question?

As a business owner I am considering making up a few thousand business cards supporting Ron Paul.

My question is would it violate any ethics or legalities to include a discount to the "Holder of this card"?

Would any other business owners here be willing to also give discounts to the card holder?

Ron Paul discount card,accepted at participating locations?

Please input of any problems with this would be greatly respected and appreciated.

I can provide an Rx discount at 59,000 stores...

I have a company that markets free prescription drug discount cards. Our average user last year saved $140 for the year. Our program is free, and we could pitch in and make this part of your discount card so people could save real money, that they could then share with Ron Paul.

Right on!

I will contact you!,I am hoping that I hear from many more business owners on this one.I truly think even a small discount will spark attention from even folks that have never heard of Ron Paul.Everyone is up for a discount.

Thanks!

Hmmm, don't know

Fairly certain that this would be a violation of

campaign finance law. If you do it, make sure to include a disclaimer relieving RP of harm (not endorsed by RP or any candidate, etc)...

If you made "liberty" cards which were not candidate specific, that would be safe, legal, and I have to imagine you could get lot of businesses signed up.

Don't claim anything on the card.

just do it, if presented. I'm not legal council.
Good idea.

Very good point and understood

The thing is I was thinking along the lines of a Smiths or Albertsons Discount card.everyone is eligible yet if they choose to use it or not will be up to them."I like Ike" was something that was used before in a similar fashion, if my history is correct?

It wouldn't be a violation until Romney's lawyers got to it

It wouldn't be a violation until Romney's lawyers got a hold of it.

A small disclaimer would help put Romney's dogs on a leash, as it is not affiliated with the campaign per se.

There must be some legal eagles on this forum?

"Cowards & idiots can come along for the ride but they gotta sit in the back seat!"

I don't have anything to take.

They can put a judgement against me for the whole zero assets in my name.By that time there will be thousands of cards out there with Ron's name on them.What do you think?

Liberty Club card

Special discounts for club members....

This is exactly the idea

I am hoping to hear that because myself and others will hand this out to everyone,I am hoping that because it is handed out to anyone it would not be discrimination.Use it or not but no one is not eligible for the discount.I have an idea this will at least spread Ron's name around quite well?

Perhaps: do you know someone versed

in the campaign finance regulations?

I am no expert, but I wonder if it would have to do with contributions in kind, etc.

At any rate, I hope my commenting will keep this active long enough for a DPer with the knowledge to see it and comment.

Thanks!

I have the cards hanging on order until I get the consensus that it would be O.K. to add a discount statement.The wonder of the Internet!
