Comment: Not analogous at all & Ignores free offer of RonPaul.org

Not analogous at all & Ignores free offer of RonPaul.org

Both of those domains that he's giving Dr. Paul appear to have no content on them, i.e., are not being used as actual websites. RonPaulShow.com is simply a parked Godaddy page (snapshot), and RonPaulPodcast.com just re-directs to RonPaulFlix.com (snapshot).

On the other hand, as I'm sure Anderson knows, RonPaul.com explained in their letter to Dr. Paul (quite reasonably IMO):

"On May 1st, 2008 we launched a grassroots website at RonPaul.com that became one of the most popular resources dedicated exclusively to you and your ideas. We put our lives on hold and invested 4.5 years of hard work into you, RonPaul.com and Ron Paul 2012. Looking back, we are very happy with what we were able to achieve with unlimited enthusiasm and limited financial resources.

After careful analysis of the available data, we are convinced that separating our grassroots website from RonPaul.com would be counterproductive. There are literally hundreds of thousands of inbound links directed to specific articles, videos and blog posts at RonPaul.com that would all be misdirected if you put up a new website at the domain.

Also, we have many email addresses, social media accounts, t-shirt designs etc. linked to the domain (in particular the popular Facebook page "RonPaul.com") that we would have to change or abandon. In short, such an abrupt change would lead to chaos on the Internet and - at least temporarily - disrupt the message of liberty.

To avoid these complications we'd like to offer you an alternative domain name, RonPaul.org, for your new website at no cost whatsoever. Please don't use a monstrosity such as "RonPaulsHomePage.com" as is being speculated on the forums. RonPaul.org is an attractive, high quality alternative, and it won't cost you anything. (Other than the annual renewal fee; all domains have to be renewed each year and that costs about $10 per year.)"
