Who is Chuck Baldwin? He is the newly crowned presidential candidate for The Constitution Party. And this man will bring about the same kind of change that Ron Paul trumpeted around the country during his run for the presidency. Chuck Baldwin said, “I do not expect the national media to pay us much heed; they seldom do. I do not expect to receive large donations from corporate America. I do expect criticism and ridicule. That is nothing new. However, I also anticipate tens of thousands of freedom-loving people from all religious persuasions and walks of life to rally to our cause. Why? Because thousands of principled people will not be bullied into voting for the “evil of two lessers” being shoved down our throats by the two major parties. Because this campaign is not about Chuck Baldwin. It is not about a political party. It is about freedom. It is about constitutional government. It is about restoring America to the founding principles bequeathed to us by our Founding Fathers. If you believe in those principles, join us!”
Chuck Baldwin will repeal the 16th Amendment which would abolish income taxes and the IRS. He would not replace it with a national sales tax that the government could use to really stick it to us which is what the Flat or Fair Tax would do. He would throw out the Departments of Energy and Education which have proven to be so effective. My gas here in Florida as of today, 5/10/08, is at $ 3.80 a gallon. I’m sure that gas tax holiday will really help with gas going up between $.01 and $.10 everyday. To help with energy needs, Chuck would get us drilling in Alaska and build more refineries and nuclear power plants. America would be energy independent. Chuck would also push through The Sanctity of Life act which would abolish Roe v. Wade. When it comes to illegal aliens, Chuck would throw employers of illegals into jail, deport illegals, give no amnesty and put our borders in place. Also, he would pull us out of the UN meaning they would have to vacate their building here and get the hell out and he would also get us out of NAFTA and NATO. Getting us out of NAFTA would be a first step in shutting down the NAFTA Superhighway already under construction in Texas and stopping the North American Union. He would also get rid of the Federal Reserve and get our money backed with something of value again.
With a Congress that would not cooperate and a chance in hell of becoming president, these are all pipe dreams, but they represent the principles that this country was founded on and principles that I believe in. If we convince enough people to not stay home to protest the GOP and McCain and to vote for the Constitution Party, politicians will have to take notice. Don’t think Ron Paul’s run went unnoticed. They were afraid of him and had to try to make him look like a fool. The only fools are the GOP who probably chose not to notice that Ron Paul got 8% of the vote in Indiana and 7% in North Carolina and that is with John McCain already set to be the candidate. Let’s send them a wake up message!
