    Conspiracy theorist, Alex Jones following, Ron Paul fans must be losing their minds right about now.

    Looks like my distrust was well-founded after all. Points for me.

    As I recall, he no longer is in office. He retired.

    Ok...so let me get this straight...

    The Paulbots rightfully own the Ron Paul sites and spent 5 years spreading Paul's (coughinsanecough) ideas...and they offered to give up RonPaul.org for free or pay $250K for RonPaul.com and get the 170K membership e-mail addresses. Paul balked and went to the UN to try and "steal" the sites from the group.

    Meanwhile, the Ron Paul Report Newsletter series, which discussed kooky conspiracy theories and bashed gays and blacks, was something that Ron Paul conveniently distanced himself from when he ran for POTUS. But he was aware of them using his name in those newsletters and was fine with them making nearly $900,000 off of that series...even when he claims he had nothing to do with it, didn't control what was written in it and had no idea what was in it.

    Rrrrrrriiiight.

    Outside of Obama...Ron Paul is one of the biggest frauds in politics. Sure, many of us get all wet over his fairly common sensible ideas on the economy...but beyond that, he's one of the biggest jokes in the political world. And there's still a whole bunch of gullible fucks out there that think he only owns one little ranch with his elderly wife and is the only honest politician out there.

    If you went by the internet because of how obsessive his fan base is, Ron Paul is the only person to ever run for president .

    Pretty much.
    I never trusted him. His cult of followers reminded me a lot of Obama's cult of followers. It made me uncomfortable to how much people loved him without really questioning his sincerity or his record.

    So he didn't want it this bad when he was running for president, but now it is a priority?

    Yeah, that kinda confuses me also. Kinda like he was hoping people would think, "Wow look at that Ron Paul-guy...he's so honest with everyone and loves America and his supporters so much...that he lets his fans run his website! That's a guy we need as POTUS!"

    But now that his political career is over...having someone else own and operate his website is seen as a liability to him and he wants to take it away. Pretty dick move.

    Makes sense to me. The .com website makes money off his name. The .org one is probably set up as a non profit, which is why they were willing to give it to him. While he was in office, he didn't mind, because there was an implied business relationship - He allowed them to keep whatever money they made off his name in exchange for the free advertising and free campaign labor. Now that he's retired that arrangement is over and there's no reason those people should continue to be able to make money off his name.
