So the domain name is ronpaul.com right? so if he gets the domain name, the people will still have to change the name of the site. This will put a huge burden on them to change urls, links, etc. I just don't think it's right to take all that they've done and give it to RP. They should be compensated. 250K is a bit much, I'll admit, but how many people do they have working for them that will be out of a job? How much equity do they have in it? 250K might not be that far of a stretch. Or, as i said before, give RP a royalty. There's a win/win situation somewhere.
If ignorance is bliss, Washington DC must be heaven.
