Support for Intellectual Property in the Constitution!: Dr. Paul supports it!Submitted by Jed on Sat, 05/21/2011 - 12:06
I am posting this because and Adam Kokesh video is posted prominently on this site promoting theft of intellectual property. Why is that posted so visibly???? That is not Ron Paul's position. Ron Paul is a Constitutionalist, and supports the right of a person to own and control the fruits of their labor, in whatever form they take: "I favor enforcement of intellectual property rights..." -Ron Paul http://interviews.slashdot.org/story/08/02/05/1511225/Ron-Pa... It's fundamental to natural rights theory of property, held by our Founders and all classical liberals.
In Article 1 Section 8, of the U.S. Constitution it says that the government has the right "To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by securing for limited Times to Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and Discoveries."
Read the Constitution sometime, will you? It's one of the basic enumerated powers! I thought this was a site to help Dr. Paul get elected. If so, why is an anti-intellectual property video posted on the front page that disputes Dr. Paul's philosophy? If you care about Ron Paul, you'll remove the Adam Kokesh anti-intellectual property anti-Constitutionalist video (which airs on Russian-taxpayer funded television).
