Comment: The whole situation just doesn't sit right with me.

(See in situ)

The whole situation just doesn't sit right with me.

I am very conflicted on the matter. On one hand, I feel as though this is a do as I say, not as I do scenario. Ideally, Dr. Paul would be able to obtain the domain through a negotiation of the price. Seeing as how I am not privy to the details, I cannot say one way or the other. For all we know negotiations were hostile and the current site owners were simply unwilling to come below their $250,000 price point. It could also be the other way around where Dr. Paul was unwilling to pay more, we don't really know. I certainly hope that this arbitration is a last resort. Even if it is, I still have a hard time swallowing it.

To be perfectly honest, I really do not like where this is heading. I understand Dr. Paul's position. I read the papers his lawyer filed, and they make valid points, but this just doesn't sit well with me. No amount of rationalizing is changing my gut feeling on this. I see this going very wrong and casting a very negative light on the liberty movement.

I know that any one of us would happily hand over the domain, asking only for lunch with the good doctor. Unfortunately, we do not own the domain. I can only hope that things are not what they appear to be. In the mean time, I will keep an open mind and see where this all goes. We have all heard this before, but I think it bears repeating.

The liberty movement is not about one man, it is about all of us working together to get the gorilla off our back.
