Ron Paul Endorses Chuck Baldwin for President

Paul goes with Baldwin

Congressman Ron Paul was blacked out by much of the corporate media during the recent Republican primary until it was too late for him to win. He has just endorsed a man for President who has also been afforded scant coverage- Chuck Baldwin from the Constitution Party. Both men share positions that will cost the global corporations who own the media lots of money, so the lack of coverage is not surprising.

Baldwin wants to end the warfare state and the welfare state (at the federal level), eliminate the Federal Reserve's power to funnel money to their cronies, and protect innocent human life. Such vast amounts of money are made servicing government contracts that candidates who will reign in this taxpayer abuse get out-raised 10,000 to one, so Baldwin faces stiff hurdles, but none higher than voters who lock their minds into the two-party box.

As I interact with my countrymen, the most bizarre effect I have ever witnessed is their inability to break with their media training and move outside the two-party system. The conversations go like this.....

Them: "The Republicans and Democrats are both crooked. They don't represent me, just the insiders".

Me:"So you don't think either McCain or Obama will take this country in the right direction?"

Them:"No! They are all crazed with greed up there. They are selling us out!"

Me:"Well, why don't you join me in voting for a candidate from a third party who hasn't sold you out and won't- Chuck Baldwin?"

Them:"What, and waste my vote?"

Me: "Arrrrrrrraggghhh!!!"

Mark,

A vote for a third party candidate is a wasted vote at this time. If there is going to be a viable third party it will have to start at the grass root level....County JP, County Judge, congress.... and so on.

Its the same as a vote of "no confidence" in the current two parties. That is not a "wasted vote". It sends exactly the message I want sent to them both.

For me a wasted vote is a vote for someone I know in advance will not push for the policies that I want.

If we don't start looking past the next election we will get suckered forever. McCain was not acceptable to the majority of conservatives in this country for most of the past 8 years. Now suddenly he is? No wonder they don't respect us.

McCain not acceptable to most conservatives but now suddenly he is? I believe that's an inaccurate characterization of what's happened. Prior to McCain's selection of Palin, conservatives still would have voted for him (albeit while holding their noses), but Palin on the ticket at least brings a strong element of no more doing-it-the-way-we've-always-done-it reform. The fact is, few or none of the majority of conservatives you mention would have voted for Obama under any circumstances. It's not a new-found love for McCain, as you suggest. It's simply a pragmatic way of at least getting some of what you want. When you go to the ice cream store, although you may want it, you can't buy (or possibly even eat) everything they have to offer; you make your limited selection and live with it. That's what's occurring with McCain: we may not get everything we want, but we can live with some, and perhaps even most, of it.

Arkansas should have several local races. I posted a comment on this in my Stuttgart News page Stuttgart, Ar. news............... http://www.topix.com/city/stuttgart-ar I also edit the Arkansas Government news , point is there are three times more State races unopposed than challenged. Tells me there is too much talk and too little Action in Arkansas.
I cant even get my Race for State rep in the local papers because they are looking for unbiased and nonpartisan sourses to be able to write a politically sterile article. If thats all we need , we could approve cloning and clone a whole bunch of politicians with one mindset. Kinda like the presidential race now. Except that Baldwin cant conform to following the media glamour routine. I will still vote as God has told me and you can guess who that one person is.
