"Write-in Ron Paul" website redirects to Barr's website

I found something very ironic last night as I was researching writing-in Ron Paul. When I did a search of Google for "write in Ron Paul", this is what I found:

http://write-inronpaul.com/ (the sixth link listed on the Google search)

...and here is the raw URL: http://write-inronpaul.com/

When you click the link, bobbarr2008.com is displayed.

Now tell me that there is not an organized, concerted effort underway, as I lovingly call them the "Anti-Write-In-League," attempting to discourage people from voting Ron Paul.

I hope someone with more technical expertise than I will investigate and ascertain who owns the following URL's:

http://write-inronpaul.com/
http://www.write-inronpaul2008.com/

Update 1: According to fanofwalt:

write-inronpaul.com was set up February 11, 2008, and updated May 27, 2008. That one lists SCHLUND+PARTNER AG as the registrar through a private registration proxy in PA.

The write-inronpaul2008.com domain was set up May 17, 2008 by Marcus Belk of New Jersey. Since he is listed as the administrative and technical contact, his contact info is publicly available on the whois search. So, if you'd like to ask Marcus about his site, you can email him at: marcus. belk@mac .com (remove the spaces).

The owner of the site switched it when Ron Paul said not to

The owner of the site switched it when Ron Paul said that it would not be a good idea to write him in.

Once again, the person

Once again,
the person running the site that redirects, is showing disrespect for folk, insinuating people are too stupid to think for themselves, so they will direct them to who they need to vote for. I find this very insulting, and it makes me more determined than ever Barr will NEVER get my vote. You people are really hurting his campaign by trying to force others to do as you want. Oh well, guess you must not really want Barr to win anyway,which suits me fine. He is someone not to be trusted, and the people supporting him are reflecting that very well.

"They" do not support Barr

If they did.. they would have realized they are not gaining support from the constant trolling on here and are responsible for turning more AWAY from Barr! That is counterproductive but they ignore the obvious and continue.

They support the establishment GOP and are here to divide and distract us...I am quite sure many here recognize this as typical neo-con tactics.

"I think we are living in a world of lies: lies that don't even know they are lies, because they are the children and grandchildren of lies." ~ Chris Floyd

Here I am...

I redirected based on Ron's own words that a write-in is not the most effective way to support our progress. I listened to my leader.

I took Ron's direction to focus on the Campaign for Liberty.

Thus I am supporting Bob Barr instead.

Don't question my commitment to this movement. I maxed out on the Presidential Campaign, donated to the Congressional campaign, and contributed to other RP republicans.

If you want the site, I'll sell it to you and contribute the money to the Campaign for Liberty. Any questions?

You have proven your integrity

by coming forward. But it still isn't a foregone conclusion that Barr gets Ron Paul votes. Quite the contrary. I think he has given every indication of being a stealth neocon. If I had to select from the ballot candidates, Baldwin is a much more appropriate replacement for RP.

Thanks for your support of libertarian candidates

Don't pay any attention to those on this site trying to pick fights. I, too, maxed out on the Ron Paul campaign and supported other activities. I'm still wearing Ron Paul gear when I get a chance.

In my case, though, I am a member of the Libertarian Party, and I will support the most libertarian candidate, whoever that turns out to be. My state doesn't count write-ins unless the candidate files as one, and Ron Paul won't.

I'm rooting for Ron Paul delegates to nominate him, but if they don't, my message to the GOP is: I'd rather vote for someone who "can't win" but advocates small government, than McCain or Obama.

Freedom brings us together.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

Marcus

Thank you for your contributions and efforts to Ron Paul's campaign.

While I don't agree with the change to supporting Barr now, you have the right to operate your site as you see fit.
However, it does give a sort of shady appearance of diversion, so that might bear some looking into.

Wow, what a big surprise.

Wow, what a big surprise.

He's a liar, and he's for Bob Barr.

A liar about donating to Paul's campaign?

Nope. Here's proof of $3276 of donations to Paul from him: http://fundrace.huffingtonpost.com/neighbors.php?type=name&l...

I think you owe him an apology (which I'm doubtful we will see, given your history of rudeness).

Why can't some of you people understand that a person supporting Barr does not mean their opposing Paul? Dr. Paul is no longer a candidate.

unbelievable, troll

You are misrepresenting Ron Paul. Stop please.

I defy you to produce the source for your assertion that according to "Ron's own words that a write-in is not the most effective way to support our progress..."

Well you're gonna have to

Well you're gonna have to ask him because unless he files a declaration of candidacy for each state the write-ins are no good.

We need to somehow stop black-box voting and make this a deal breaker issue. Though I doubt we'll see any daylight in the black-box. After the election we could see some rioting. If we could somehow elect a 3rd party candidate. The 3rd party would fix the election discrepancies. The two major parties have no interest.

Here's the source:

""I don’t think that’s very productive," Paul said of a write-in campaign. "They could do it, of course, but in most of the states it won’t count. If they can change the rules in a primary and not count all the votes, imagine what they could do with write-in votes!" http://www.reason.com/news/show/127030.html http://www.libertymaven.com/2008/06/16/ron-paul-on-the-write...

And you knew the source existed, because it's been shown to you before. You're being disingenuous.

unsupported tripe

That does not support the assertion "that a write-in is not the most effective way to support our progress" according to "Ron's own words."

Ron Pauls own Words

“I don’t think too many of them will vote for John McCain,” he said. “I think there’s a lot of support for Chuck Baldwin. He worked real hard for our campaign, so it’s going to be real hard for me to say I’m for Bob Barr.”

Great. Looks like he's going to be endorsing Barr.

Notice the words "GOING TO BE real hard to.."

We already know he SUPPORTS BOTH Barr and Baldwin: "I think [Barr's]running a very important race, and I'm encouraging him. I haven't endorsed him, but he's saying the kind of things I like to be heard and said. I hope he does real well. But, we also have Chuck Baldwin who runs on the Constitutional Party. His views are very very close to mine, and he worked very hard in my campaign. So for me to pick one over the other is not easy. I hope they both together get a lot of votes." http://www.dailypaul.com/node/52615

No...what he is saying

is that if "Bob Patriot Act Barr" was truly sincere about Constitutional Freedom and had the voting record to back it up then he would have been out supporting Ron Paul like Chuck Baldwin did!

"I think we are living in a world of lies: lies that don't even know they are lies, because they are the children and grandchildren of lies." ~ Chris Floyd

actually

I think all we can truly surmise from this is that he doesn't feel that it would be right to put his support behind Barr when Baldwin had done so much for his campaign. He certainly isn't backing Barr here, nor is he backing Baldwin.

Barr's other record

* "In the 107th Congress when Ron Paul stood up for our sovereignty against the United Nations (Roll Call votes 245 and 246), it was Bob Barr who supported him ... just as Barr supported Paul in cutting corporate welfare by limiting funding for the Export-Import Bank."

* "Barr is a co-sponsor of H. Res. 197, 'Stop U.N. Gun Ban.'"

* "Barr supports H.R. 2615 'Stop National Medical ID and the Patient Privacy Protection Act.'"

* "Barr is a leading defender of civil liberties. He introduced legislation that forces the National Security Agency's Project ECHELON to provide a full accounting to the Congress of their covert monitoring of millions of phone calls, faxes, and emails."

* "He led the fight against National ID Card proposals and introduced legislation in 1998 to check the federal government's abuse of wire-tapping laws — including the use of roving wiretaps — and also opposed governmental interception of cellular phone calls."

* "He introduced legislation to mandate that the federal government issue 'Privacy Impact Statements' every time it issues a new rule or regulation."

* "He was a chief sponsor of a law to limit abuses of the civil asset forfeiture statutes."

* "He fought against OSHA regulations and to limit small business vulnerability to frivolous labor litigation."

* "He is a board member of the National Rifle Association, and a staunch defender of the right of Americans to own and use firearms. He has introduced and sponsored legislation to block litigation against gun manufacturers for the acts of their customers and to limit any background checks and mandate they be conducted 'instantly.'"

* "Barr has succinctly advocated the principle that while criminals must be punished to the full extent of the law, their civil liberties must be protected with even more vigor."

* "He is a staunch defender of American sovereignty and opposes the executive branch's overzealous use of our military abroad he even filed suit against President Clinton's war in Kosovo without congressional approval."

* "He is a fierce critic of the United Nations — and to a lesser degree NATO — and has consistently supported efforts to withdraw U.S. membership from the United Nations."

* "He co-sponsored a committee amendment to withdraw the U.S. from the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank."

* "Since his first day in Congress back in 1995, Barr has tirelessly fought to eliminate the Internal Revenue Code, supported the "flat tax" proposal, and consistently supported passage of a constitutional amendment requiring a two-thirds supermajority of Congress to raise taxes."

* "He was an early supporter of lowering the capital gains tax and recently he introduced legislation to provide tax credits for educators: public, private, and homeschool!"

* "More than any other member of the Georgia delegation, Congressman Barr has parted with the Republican majority to vote against bloated "pork barrel" spending."

* "He has continually fought the unconstitutional [McCain/Feingold] 'campaign finance reforms.' Defending our fundamental rights, he has filed a lawsuit to prevent implementation of the recently passed legislation."

Barr DID step out and support Paul:

Watch this speech: http://youtube.com/watch?v=lKt2s0LjUHY

Barr also tried to draft Dr. Paul to run 3rd party Libertarian when his campaign was winding down. Barr only stepped up to the plate after Dr. Paul turned down the offer.

Fix this broken record. The sound is killing me.
