Ron Paul: “I’m supporting Chuck Baldwin” & “the most difficult group to recruit has been the evangelicals who supported McCain and his pro-war positions”

“Ironically the most difficult group to recruit has been the evangelicals who supported McCain and his pro-war positions.  They have been convinced that they are obligated to initiate preventive war in the Middle East for theological reasons.  Fortunately, this is a minority of the Christian community, but our doors remain open to all despite this type of challenge.  The point is, new devotees to the freedom philosophy are more likely to come from the left than from those conservatives who have been convinced that God has instructed us to militarize the Middle East.”

“I’ve thought about the unsolicited advice from the Libertarian Party candidate, and he has convinced me to reject my neutral stance in the November election.  I’m supporting Chuck Baldwin, the Constitution Party candidate.”

A New Alliance – By Dr. Ron Paul

Friends – please read this new and important piece by Dr. Paul.

The press conference at the National Press Club had a precise purpose.  It was to expose, to as many people as possible, the gross deception of our presidential election process.  It is controlled by the powerful elite to make sure that neither candidate of the two major parties will challenge the status quo.  There 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.  The quotes I used at the press conference from insider Carroll Quigley and the League of Women voters strongly support this contention.

Calling together candidates from the liberal, conservative, libertarian and progressive constituencies, who are all opposed to this rigged process, was designed to alert the American people to the uselessness of continuing to support a process that claims that one’s only choice is to choose the lesser of two evils and reject a principle vote that might challenge the status quo as a wasted vote. …

This strategy led to the press conference with the four candidates agreeing to the four principles [link] we believe are crucial in challenging the political system that has evolved over many years in this country.

This unique press conference, despite the surprising, late complication from the Libertarian Party Presidential Candidate, hopefully will prove to be historically significant.

This does not mean that I expect to get Ralph Nader or Cynthia McKinney to become libertarians, nor do they expect me to change my mind on the issues on which we disagree. In the meantime, why can’t we be friends, respectful of each other, and fight the corrupt process from which we suffer, and at the same time champion the four issues that we all agree upon which the two major candidates won’t address? …

Ironically the most difficult group to recruit has been the evangelicals who supported McCain and his pro-war positions.  They have been convinced that they are obligated to initiate preventive war in the Middle East for theological reasons.  Fortunately, this is a minority of the Christian community, but our doors remain open to all despite this type of challenge.  The point is, new devotees to the freedom philosophy are more likely to come from the left than from those conservatives who have been convinced that God has instructed us to militarize the Middle East.

Although we were on the receiving end of ridicule in the reporting of the press conference, I personally was quite satisfied with the results. True revolutions are not won in a week, a month, or even a year.  They take time.  But we are making progress….

The Libertarian Party Candidate admonished me for “remaining neutral” in the presidential race and not stating whom I will vote for in November.   It’s true; I have done exactly that due to my respect and friendship and support from both the Constitution and Libertarian Party members.  I remain a lifetime member of the Libertarian Party and I’m a ten-term Republican Congressman.  It is not against the law to participate in more then one political party.  Chuck Baldwin has been a friend and was an active supporter in the presidential campaign.

I continue to wish the Libertarian and Constitution Parties well.  The more votes they get, the better.  I have attended Libertarian Party conventions frequently over the years.

In some states, one can be on the ballots of two parties, as they can in New York.  This is good and attacks the monopoly control of politics by Republicans and Democrats.  We need more states to permit this option.  This will be a good project for the Campaign for Liberty, along with the alliance we are building to change the process.

I’ve thought about the unsolicited advice from the Libertarian Party candidate, and he has convinced me to reject my neutral stance in the November election.  I’m supporting Chuck Baldwin, the Constitution Party candidate.

Then, the politicians … send the US military to invade, bomb, and KILL HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of people, the vast majority of whom are innocent people. … ANIMOSITY against the United States is GROWING EXPONENTIALLY; in an effort to keep our country at war, our ECONOMY is being overburdened and overtaxed TO THE POINT OF NO RETURN; in the name of the “War on Terror,” America is on the verge of becoming a giant POLICE STATE; we are INCITING CHINA AND RUSSIA INTO NUCLEAR WAR; and America’s military VETERANS are KILLING THEMSELVES more frequently than are enemy bullets”

Sarah Palin demonstrates why most evangelicals dissed Ron Paul, who wanted to bring the troops home. ‘Christians’ have two sets of books: one for US and one for THEM (“who don’t deserve rights”). THEY’re not our ‘neighbor’ whom Jesus commanded US to love as much as ourselves. Maybe that’s why most evangelicals refuse to investigate 9/11. If THEY didn’t take down the towers…???

    What a fine graphic representation of the Right! There always seems to be some place in their hearts for the militant Jesus, taking his M16 into the field, fighting for his freedoms, screaming “Die commi, DIE!!!

    I’m a Born Again Christian and nothing makes me more upset than when some of my Christian friends tell me that all of these things going on in the world and especially the United States are supposed to happen and there isn’t much point in trying to stop it because it has all been prophesized in Revelations and Daniel! I CAN’T just sit by and watch my beautiful country be torn apart with our Constitution and Bill of Rights, I’m a direct descendentof John Adams which also makes me a Daughter of the American Revolution and I don’t believe that God would want us to just sit by doing nothing and watch it happen! What is so terrible about trying to educate the public and spread the message of FREEDOM, LIBERTY and LOVE for our fellow CITIZENS as Ron Paul has been working so hard in Congress to do all of these years! If we could just clone Ron Paul and fill the House and Senate with his principals alone, our country would be completely different and MUCH better! Gone would be the Militarization of our local police; the U.N. would be located in some other foreign country; there would be NO income tax and NO need for a Federal Reserve. We would have a MUCH smaller military force and Pentagon; just IMAGINE the money we could save by closing all the military bases around the world and not handing out Billions to every country that comes begging! Our farmers would be farming again and gone would be the big agribusiness that has taken over and poisoned our food supply with their genetically modified CRAP! I think I just described Utopia or something close to it!

    I’ve watched John Hagee and he seems to be of the opinion that Isreal comes before the safety and security of the U.S.! Yes, I believe that we should be friends and allies with Isreal, we’ve already trained their military, given them more than enough weapons necessary to exists in the hostile region of the ME, but do we REALLY have to continue to send them BILLIONS of dollars every year when they are a very wealthy nation in their own right?! So many evangicals that I’ve spoken with about Isreal is that they believe we MUST protect Isreal no matter what the cost, as if God spoke to them personally, but in truth, they’ve been brainwashed to believe this! We should NOT be pushed into attacking Iran for the benefit of Isreal either, another misconception of the evangicals! Jesus did NOT talk and teach of attacking the enemy before they could attack you; he preached of LOVE, NOT WARS! That’s why the sheep in the evangical groups need to UNPLUG themselves from their constant brainwashing and begin to THINK FOR THEMSELVES!

    I am NOT an anti-semite, I don’t care what religion, color or background people are, but the FACT of the matter is that our government is composed disproportionately of Jewish people, something like 6% when the entire Jewish population in the U.S. is only 2%, I believe I got those figures correct. And many of the Jewish people in government like Michael Chertoff and Ralm Emanuel, just to name a few are dual citizens! Isn’t that a Direct Conflict of Interests?

    Leigh Y.,

    Nicely said. Thanks for posting!

    And perhaps many of our ‘Christians’ friends don’t understand that these things aren’t supposed to happen just because God said that someday they would.

    We’re supposed to be salt and light so they don’t happen in our generation, I believe. But in many ways, just the opposite has happened. By supporting the Bush/Cheney’s reverse-Christian policies they have helped bring in the antichrist governments in this country and elsewhere.

    The real Christlike, “blessed are the peacemakers” candidate, Ron Paul would have done much of what you said. But apparently he wasn’t pro-preemptive-war enough for the evangelical leaders.

    It’s a scary thing to think of what will happen to these leaders if they don’t repent for what they’ve done before they die.

    I’m actually thinking that repenting for supporting the anti-freedom war machine may be one of the key components that will bring in real Christianity and real revival. The leaders, especially should admit they were wrong and that they led the church astray. Some of these men even publicly condoned torture and even assassination of people who didn’t do anything to us.

    It’s like there is no fear of God anymore. Everybody goes to heaven. All is good. Don’t worry be happy. The Democrats and the ‘terrorists,’ they’re the problem. When it’s the ‘Christians’ who dissed Ron Paul and all he stands for.

    The real pro-life candidate should have carried the ‘Christian’ vote, and should have been supported on ‘Christian’ radio and TV. But not a peep.

    Thanks again for posting your well thought out comments. God bless you for taking a Christian stand!!!

    May we be ‘ONE,’ you all, as Jesus prayed we would be — one with each other when we are truly in Christ: loving the Lord, our God with all of our heart…, and ALL of our neighbors as ourself.

    Power to the peaceful!

    Jeff Fenske
