Richard Gilbert from the Attorneys For Ron Paul died

From his fiance's facebook: Pepper DraperRichard Gilbert

It is with great mourning that I take a moment to let you know that my sweetheart, fiance', best friend and love of my life, Richard Gilbert has passed away. I am unable at this time to pay the tribute to him that I so desire, but I wanted to make sure that each of you knew.

I will post more later as we prepare for the memorial in his honor and be able to put exactly into words the feelings of my heart for this great man.

This guy caused a lot of controversy over here on Daily Paul, but no matter what people think, he was a passionate fighter for Ron Paul.

The Man cannot Respond to Defend Himself

I consider Richard Gilbert an American hero for speaking his mind and doing something unlike some of the do nothing idiots here are condemning him. I saw alot of good this man did weather he won or lost he brought alot of attention to the Ron Paul Campaign. I would have been proud to shake his hand unlike two of the A Holes on Ron Paul's campaign. Richard you are a hero in my book Thanks for your effort you will be remembered in a positive way by millions of us. Thank You for your help in spreading the word.

Rest in Peace.

Rest in Peace.

Ron Paul on his son Rand Paul:
"he does a lot of things similarly, but I think he does everything better. Than I have done over the years,"


Hope your beagle will find happiness, and I'm sorry for the loss of those who LOVED you.

Richard Gilbert was a scammer

Richard Gilbert was a scammer, its a shame that some Ron Paul supporters fell for his BS

a bit harsh

I never bought what he was selling, but I wouldn't go so far as to say he was a "scammer".

Richard Gilbert the Liberty Fighter

It is sad that we have learned of Richard Gilbert's passing, which was on Sunday the 14th. Besides being missed greatly we should all remember this great Liberty fighter for his HUGE support for Dr. Ron Paul along with many other battles he fought for the rights of our Liberties.

To Honor Richard please take a moment to think about how much he gave for many years, way before we ever met him. He was all about our Constitution before many of you were even born. This man fought with his heart and soul for every single one of our Liberties, not just for Ron Paul, but for us all! Please take the time to read the Constitution and our Bill of Rights to remember this great warrior for Liberty. Nothing would please him more than for us to read again these documents and understand their true value.

It is our time to pick up the torch and carry on with our heads held high and to know that with everyone that fights for Liberty we simply join Richard in the greatest quest of our times. He always said that we are doing this together, not him alone. He never asked for the glory. He only wished for our Rights to be honored and restored, and for us to have the chance to have our Freedom. This man detested "the Romney Camp" as he called them, and the elitists for using us all. He was right about his work and his fight, our fight.

If you are not familiar with how the case turned out. It was ruled MUTE as the convention was starting so there wasn't enough time to research and finish a true case before the convention would be over. That Mute ruling was a favorable ruling and the information in that case can be used again, possibly against the RNC in the future. This was more than any other case had given to us in our fight for our rights. This was huge in the scheme of things. Thank you Richard for doing this for us all, especially for trying to help battle for Dr. Ron Paul's true votes from us supporters. Of course he knew it was a long shot but being a long shot never stopped Richard. It was just one more thing to take the step up as a warrior and try.

There was a lighter side to Richard that many didn't have the opportunity to experience. He was a very kind and a very giving man with a wonderful sense of humor. He was so intelligent and able to see beyond a few months or years. He will be immensely missed.

Saying good bye, Rest In Peace my friend, we have it from here on out. We will never lay down that torch.

No disrespect to a man with a good heart

but I will disagree that a moot (not "mute" which is certainly a bad quality in a lawyer ;) ) ruling is in any way good. It means the Court doesn't address the merits of the issue at all because there is nothing left to rule upon. For example, if someone seeks an injunction to stop a foreclosure sale after the sale takes place, the court will simply rule it is moot. In my experience, a moot ruling is almost always foreseeable. Whether he foresaw it or informed others of that possibility are other matters.

But I just have to say it is inaccurate that one can take the moot ruling and use it as favorable authority for anything.

I edited the title

Last night was the first I saw of it and was not sure when it happened. It was really startling when I saw it. I went back last night and watched several of his videos. He was feisty awesome!

being that I have enjoyed a couple brews....

The title of this post startled me for a second.... Sad none the less, but my heart started pounding as i reread it a couple times. either way I thank him for what he has done for the cause of liberty.
