I have one question Michael, that I was hoping you would answer honestly.
I know you never saw Rand Paul coming in 2007 when you made the site, and I know you did not get permission from Ron to use his name for your publication, or even make him aware it was coming during his presidential bid- but in all honesty, knowing what you know now do you regret using the "Paul" name for the publication? Or stated differently, if you had to do it all over again, would you still use the Paul name?
To me, it seems like youre damned if you do and damned if you dont.
To change the name this far in would be a huge cut in traffic and profits,
not to change it forces you to live with the original choice.
Thats one hell of a catch 22.
Personally, I think, maybe you would not use the Paul name if you had a do over, But if you had the chance to do it all over, would you name it something different or keep Rons family name?
and one correction I would like to make about your statement above, Rand rode into the senate by Tea Party support and gave a message from us on election night. His father, nor his fathers supporters were ever mentioned by Rand throughout his campaign, only the Tea Party was.
I doubt I will get an answer on the question above but I always wondered about how you felt now, on using his name for your site.
"OH NO! He has a SON?" Neoconservatives and Liberals EVERYWHERE!
