An e-mail from Lew Rockwell on ronpaul.com issueSubmitted by JCNailz316 on Wed, 02/13/2013 - 01:56
Just wanted to send a quick update:
I e-mailed Lew Rockwell about the RonPaul.com issue. Here's what I said:
I hope he (RP) does something big for liberty soon. The internet is going crazy right now over him going to the UN for help over ronpaul.com and I'm trying to take a step back and give him the benefit of the doubt, but I know he's making a lot of his loyal supporters upset. Just doesn't sound like the Ron Paul I supported over the years.
And here was his response:
He appealed to ICANN, the private organization that allocates URLs to obey their own rules, which forbid someone using a famous person's name to make money. There are four arbitrators ICANN uses: one US, one Asian, one Czech, and one international. Since the people at RP.com are not Americans, he had to use the international one, which is affiliated with the UN.
So there you have it. Just figured I would give you the latest from someone who has to be in the know in regards to RP himself. Take care!
