When Ernest Hancock–a Libertarian Party guy and freelance anarchist revolutionary who does his Internet business over at Freedom's Phoenix–designed the very popular "Ron Paul rEVOLution" logo (as seen on the cover of my book Ron Paul's Revolution) I'm quite confident he never dreamed of this, the logo used for today's ongoing Ron Paul rally at the Sundome in Tampa, Florida:
Hancock told me in vivid terms when I interviewed him for my book he was very, very uninterested in any attempt to turn the Paul movement into something fully embedded in the Republican Party. I sought comment from him today but haven't gotten it yet; I'll update if I do.
But Hancock never wanted to claim ownership of that logo or idea. What's more important is whether all the Paul revolutionaries will see their future as being "good Republicans" or people trying to use the Republican Party as a tool for liberty. The talks so far here at the Paul rally–which I'll be reporting on more later today–are leaning nicely, for the most part, in recognizing that it's about liberty, not Party.
