You're stuck in the paradigm of LEGAL instead of what is RIGHT.
Certainly, "legally" Ron Paul can petition ICANN (and whatever partner organizations) to sieze the domain from the current registrants as part of the private agreement made between those two parties. That's not what I'm talking about.
I'm talking about natural rights.
Ron Paul has no natural right (or extension thereof) to the domain ronpaul.com
Yes you should be able to create a website with a domain of my name, and put whatever you'd like on it. I am not the ultimate master of other people's perceptions of me. I am free to convince them I am one way, and you are free to convince them I am something else entirely.
Creating such a site wouldn't make you a good person, but it's certainly within your (natural) right.
