Something happened here on OpEdNews that has made me feel the need to make a new rule for OpEdNews in the same way Bill Maher makes new rules on his show.

New Rule:

Any Ron Paul supporter who claims that any of the presidential candidates have conspired against him must provide proof also known as evidence or else his or her comment will be removed and replaced with the words "Ron Paul Hates the Constitution."

It's simply absurd to assert that anybody especially Dennis Kucinich knowingly conspired to divide peace voters. One Ron Paul supporter actually claimed that peace voters would have really supported Ron Paul if Dennis had not run and went on to claim that Dennis intended to wait until it was too late for Ron Paul to win and then drop out so that Ron Paul would definitely lose.

If this were Countdown w/ Keith Olbermann, you would be the winner of the gold for World's Worst Person.

Next people like you will be asserting that Barack Obama ran to divide the black vote and Ron Paul was really the black candidate. Or, John Edwards ran to claim he was fighting corporate greed when really Ron Paul is that candidate and Edwards intended to take away his votes.

I would suggest that this comment was an isolated incident, but the push for Ron Paul is so organized that I wonder if some of the people commenting with claims of conspiracy are getting this claim of conspiracy from someone in the higher echelons of power in the campaign.

If this is so, maybe we should put out a cult alert as some leader in the Ron Paul campaign may tell people to drink the Kool-Aid and cause a group suicide. At least if they did that we wouldn't have to hear any more foolish cries of conspiracy.
