Ron Paul’s Presidential Endorsement: Chuck Baldwin?

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Libertarian, Ron Paul

Yes…the Chuck Baldwin, candidate for the Constitution Party.

So why not the Libertarian candidate Bob Barr?

Well, it appears as if Paul didn’t like the fact that Barr didn’t show up to his press conference recently…

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.

And yet, let’s not forget that Paul remains a Republican and draws a salary as a Republican…even though his views align almost exactly with the Libertarian party.

Folks, I know he got everybody excited, but at this point you have to admit that this will probably be the last chapter in the book of Paul. Oh, their may be some brief epilogue, but this guy so badly squandered all the love and support thrown his way over the course of this campaign season, and what’s left of it he has thrown to somebody who’s sympathetic to 9/11 truthers.

And scene.

    And endorsing Barr would have redeemed him, or kept him more relevant for a slightly longer time?

    How about the reality he was DEAD right on his doom and gloom predictions about the housing markets, and our economy?
    I mean DEAD ON.

    THAT is what he should be remembered for. Not who the hell he endorsed.
    Come on.

  2. Ron Paul does not exist in my world anymore…. – Political Byline Says:

    [...] Beltway, Liberal Values, The Other McCain, distributedrepublic …, American Spectator, Wonkette, Donklephant and American Spectator, Ron Paul’s Lame Assed [...]

    The only support he ‘lost’ were the fad voters. People who believe in his honesty or his politics aren’t going to be angry at him. Most did not expect him to do as well as he did, thanks largely in part to the internet.

    Bob Barr being a libertarian is like a panther being a small cat. Just in name. Much like Ron Paul being a Republican.

    Ron Paul stayed true to his word throughout his campaign. He did not run as a third party, even if it would’ve definitely taken votes away from both. He did not endorse either big party candidate because neither represented his views. Bob Barr was suspect from the beginning. If Chuck Baldwin represents his views the most, then more power to him.

    We need to unite the Liberty movement…if Bob Barr can’t do it,maybe Baldwin can…We need to have an IMPACT!

  5. Jared McClure Says:

    The problem with Chuck Baldwin is that he’s a theocrat… his version (or his party’s version) of “liberty” is basically “Free if you’re a Christian…. forced to act like a Christian if you’re not.” Plus the press conference invited some very non-libertarian minded retards, such as Ralph Nader.
