Ron Paul Issues a Challenge to Two Party Duopoly
Ron Paul held a press conference today with the Green, Reform, and Constitution Party candidates for President. Paul's message was that the two parties have iced all other political parties from the debates by setting up their own debate commission- run by former party chairmen of each party. It used to be that groups like the league of women voters sponsored the debates, but they refused to yield to Republicrat demands to keep the other candidates out. The Republicrats responded by forming this bogus debate commission which shut out all other ideas and candidates.
Paul's group, the Campaign for Liberty is going to sponsor a debate which includes all candidates on enough state ballots to theoretically win the election. This would be six candidates. If Obama and McCain accept the invitation, the Campaign for Liberty will donate one million dollars to veterans groups.
The four candidates came together to make a statement which basically said despite their differences, they agree on four points, 1) move away from military interventionism 2) protect civil liberties and curtail unconstitutional government spying on the civilian population without a warrant 3) Stop adding to the government debt and 4) Investigate and curtail the activities of the Federal Reserve.
Here is one of the candidates, Chuck Baldwin, on Lou Dobbs.....sounds good....
