Local Ron Paul/C4L HQ up in flames.Submitted by jimbabb on Sun, 12/08/2013 - 06:59
Unofficial Ron Paul HQ of Mount Desert Island (Maine) Burns
I am sad to report that on Dec. 4, 2013, the freedom outpost of Mount Desert Island burned to the ground. In a land of Obama sticker-clad Subarus, Cap’n Nemo’s was an oasis for freedom lovers to enjoy colossal beers, fresh seafood and the company of colorful sea captains and other locals.
Everything about this establishment made it obvious that the owners were nov-conformists. Visitors were greeted by Ron Paul signs outside, a “Rights of Man” life preserver on the door, and a Campaign for Liberty flag on the ceiling.
Thankfully, no one was hurt, but the owners have not only lost their business, but their home as well. They did not have fire insurance. They escaped with nothing but the clothes on their back.
Community support has been substantial, but these good people need a lot of help. I’m hoping that folks from the Ron Paul Revolution will join me in supporting one of our own.
A relief effort has already raised $19,000. Please help if you can. I’m happy to serve as a intermediary for bitcoin contributions (email firstname.lastname@example.org).
