Constitution Partyâ€™s Chuck Baldwin Set To Dent â€˜Big Boxâ€™ Candidates
Grand Rapids, MI (September 22, 2008) Former GOP presidential candidate, Texas Congressman Ron Paul announced today he is endorsing Constitution Party presidential candidate Chuck Baldwin. (www.campaignforliberty.com)
In a letter to supporters, Paul wrote, â€œIâ€™m supporting Chuck Baldwin, the Constitution Party candidate.â€
Paul went on to say, â€œThere is no real choice between the two major parties and their nominees, only the rhetoric varies. The amazingly long campaign is designed to make sure the real issues are ignored.â€
Baldwin, a conservative commentator, columnist and pastor of a church in Pensacola, FL, campaigned for Ron Paul during the congressmanâ€™s run for president. After receiving Paulâ€™s endorsement, Baldwin said, â€œI am humbled and deeply grateful to Dr. Paul for his support. There could not be higher praise. I am committed to carrying on the Ron Paul Revolution for a return to constitutionally limited government.
The www.constitutionparty.com, is poised to offer voters a viable alternative to the two parties now controlling our government.
Baldwin noted, â€œRon Paulâ€™s message resonated with people across the political spectrum. Likewise, our campaign embraces Americans of diverse political ideologies, spiritual paths and socio-economic groups – all who recognize the urgency of a return to the Constitution and the principles of personal liberty that document defines.â€
Baldwin, appearing recently on CNNâ€™s Lou Dobbâ€™s Tonight program was told by Dobbs: (Baldwinâ€™s view on immigration reform issues) was â€œa good reason to vote for you, I like that reason.” (Click here for a transcript, and HERE for a YouTube clip of the show.)
Baldwin appeared at a recent Washington DC press conference with Congressman Ron Paul. Paul spoke about the need to bypass the two major party candidates this November and instead vote for a candidate such as Chuck Baldwin. See YouTube clip HERE.)
Like Paul, Baldwin has taken a stand against unconstitutional foreign intervention, such as the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Both Baldwin and Paul have called for abolishing the IRS and the Federal Reserve, have spoken out against the recent financial â€œbailoutsâ€ and against unauthorized trade â€œagreementsâ€ such as NAFTA and GATT.
Chuck Baldwin supports Congressman Ron Paulâ€™s â€˜Sanctity of Life legislationâ€™,(H.R. 2597) opposing abortion, has received an â€˜Aâ€™ rating from Gun Owners of America and an â€œexcellentâ€ grade from pro-secure borders group Numbers USA.
