I will forever defend Ron Paul.

You can't say he didn't have his heart in the right place on any issue. His policies simply wouldn't work.

He wanted you to have the ability to sue if corporations polluted your land, Trump just took over the EPA and gave you no legal recourse to prevent corporations from destroying you.

All of Paul's ideas stemmed from the idea of making your life better, never from a "fuck you I got mine" idea, call it naive, call it wrong, sure but I can't get mad at the purity of his intentions.

Following his failure to get the GOP nomination, and subsequent retirement from Congress in January 2013, Paul wanted to get a website off the ground. In March 2013 he tried to buy RonPaul.com: a site run since 2008 by his supporters. Paul had once owned the site but lost it in August 2012 after failing to pay renewal fees. The site's current owners soon after acquired the rights to own the site.

In response to his request to buy the site, the owners very nicely offered to give Paul RonPaul.org, another domain name they own, absolutely free. As for RonPaul.com, they offered to give him that for $250,000. Instead, he refused both offers and went to the World Intellectual Property Organization (a United Nations agency) to lodge an intellectual property complaint in an attempt to control both without paying a dime.

That's right, Ron Paul went to the United Nations: a global organization that he has constantly said America should renounce and leave. Paul isn't so hateful of it after all or he wouldn't use it to get involved in a matter that he apparently has no faith in the free market to handle.

The WIPO dismissed the complaint. In a hilarious twist, they also found Paul guilty of "reverse domain name hijacking" for ignoring the very reasonable offers the site owners gave him. Furthermore, Paul's attempts to lie about the site being used to benefit from his name and likeness were shot down. It was apparent the domain owners were obviously using the site to help spread news and information about Paul as opposed to exploiting him for personal gain as he claimed.

Following this damaging legal haymaker, Paul abandoned the attempt to seize the site and instead launched a website with a different domain name: something he should have considered doing in the first place. Despite destroying practically all his credibility in claiming to support a free market, Ron still uses his site as a soapbox to preach about the wonders of a free market based on compromise, volunteerism, and non-aggression.

As to be expected, many of his supporters still attempt to justify his underhanded behavior. Sadly, no amount of deflection or justification can disprove that this incident shows Paul lacks any principles and consistency where his ideal free market is concerned. This indisputably makes him no less respectable or honorable than many other American politicians in office who he accuses of using the same tactics he did to get what they want.

In a textbook case of denial, the owners of RonPaul.com still refuse to accept Paul could treat them like crap.

Don't know how right wing he is anymore. He used to call himself a libertarian and invite mostly right wing grifters on his podcast but he seems to have become a little more skeptical of them lately (like when he pushed back against Dave Rubin's braindead libertarian talking points recently for example). Either way I wouldn't gulag him, he's very likeable (you just need to avoid listening to him talk about politics).

I'm very conflicted on Roger Scruton. He might be the most important living philosopher on aesthetics, and I'm very fond of his writings on the subject. That said, I'm very critical of his political views - he often compares immigration to an "invasion" that will "weaken culture," which is all hideous and dangerous language.
