I think it's a huge compliment for a Ron Paul domain to be offered at $856K? That figure could easily, and accurately, be what the IDEAL cost of the site is worth on a global market for 6 years, paying living wages to a staff, consultants, lawyers, specialists, intel property for security on a gloabl scale. IDEAL COST. The cost reflects what an IDEAL value is because their efforts and real costs are not worthless.
It appears to me, it was not The Honorable Congressman Doctor Ronald Ernest Paul Ret., who contacted ronpaul.com, but RON PAUL, a corporate legal firm that specializes in international domain laws for arbitration purposes representing the Honorable Congressman Doctor Ronald Ernest Paul RETIRED.
THE PROBLEM is that if you joined the GOP, and you're fighting the neocons face to face. What do I say, when I approach Karl Rove, who has formed a Victory PAC to eliminate people like me in the GOP, when he asks, "Looks like your guy Ron Paul thinks diplomacy and free trade are great foreign policy for a nation, but not great when it comes to protecting himself."?
It appears to me, the guys who bought the domain ronpaul.com were fans, grassroots, who made a decent site.. it's no Daily PAul, but it's no Debbie Does Dallas, or even close.. much closer to Daily PAul, in all good and real things about The Honorable Congressman Doctor Ronald Ernest Paul.
The Honorable Congressman Doctor Ronald Ernest Paul, who campaigned for president, cured our apathy, brought us all together, inspired the Daily PAul, delivered a message of freedom, liberty, sound money, non interventionist military, and restoring the republic with respect to the constitution and bill of rights, is not, RON PAUL filing an arbitration within ICANN.
the grassroots of ronpaul.com didn't expect The Honorable Congressman Doctor Ronald Ernest Paul Ret <-- RETIRED in the form of RON PAUL to contact them asking 'What's it worth?"
ronpaul.com probably gave a figure that accurately gives an IDEAL value. Nothing wrong with that when you understand that you are dealing with a man using diplomacy and trade, rather than a legal enity posing as RON PAUL (Honorable Congressman Doctor Ronald Ernest Paul NOT ret).
So RON PAUL asks, "How much do you want for it?" WHAT's IT WORTH TO YOU (Priceless is not an answer, though what is Ron Paul worth is the real answer)?
ronpaul.com responds: $250K
Who thinks that is not reasonable?
Honorable Congressman Doctor Ronald Ernest Paul, being a messanger of diplomacy and free trade, one might think could say, "Would you be willing to trade it for some gold or silver RON PAUL coins?"
Wouldn't that have been exciting? Few advertizers on Daily PAul would have been thrilled!
ronpaul.com opened their notebooks, like the charactors in BigMikeDude's Valentine greeting to us today, and got the RON PAUL case being filed in ICANN. I don't think they expected that.
I read the case, and what it is, is not the Honorable Congressman Doctor Ronald Ernest Paul, but Honorable Congressman Doctor Ronald Ernest Paul RETIRED, who has EMPLOYED / RETAINED a law firm that is REPRESENTING Honorable Congressman Doctor Ronald Ernest Paul RETIRED, as RON PAUL. THEY claim the owners of ronpal.com are using the site IN BAD FAITH. I don't see that.
I think grassroots who LOVE Ron Paul LOVE Ron Paul and they are not worthless UNLESS YOU ARE DEALING WITH THE ESTABLISHMENT, which RON PAUL is. Now is RON PAUL the CORPORATE legal efirm making these claims against ronpaul.com hired by Honorable Congressman Doctor Ronald Ernest Paul RETIRED, or a friend, or maybe a family member.. or maybe RonPaul Inc? That no one knows.
The Honorable Congressman Doctor Ronald Ernest Paul, isn't talking. The messager and MY teacher has become silent.. he has every right to PRIVACY..
Meanwhile RON PAUL (whoever they may be.. three names are named on the file, but they are representing others in the name of RON PAUL) are not using diplomacy or trade to acquire the domain ronpaul.com, but they are using precient.. Hillary Clinton and Julia Roberts, famous people, who had to fight for their domains because they wanted control over the site. Nothing wrong with that.. it not wrong to want control, it's how you go about getting it.. to FORCE ronpaul.com to quit "NOTHING FOR YOU nameless so called fans of Ron Paul, who act in bad faith and use the good doctors name in vain!"
Honorable Congressman Doctor Ronald Ernest Paul taught us that sound money, diplomacy and free trade are what we need to restore America, and many of us thought that's how we could begin the rEVOLution, starting with ourselves. But it seems, that Honorable Congressman Doctor Ronald Ernest Paul RETIRED, is now showing us, that his message is a wonderful dream, the reality being, we all need to earn enough fame and fortune so we can hire the corporate machine to take by force of hearings on a legal scale what twe want, no trade, no diplomacy, nothing personal, just cold hard dirty politics.
Moral if the story: It is better to hire a legal firm and use force than to barter with diplomacy on a personal level when you have money, fame and power, against those who do not.
