Ron Paul and the Power of Government

Ron Paul today expressed frustration with the two-party "charade" we have and endorsed the Libertarian, Green, Constitution, and independent candidates for President. He says a lot of things in the article that I agree with, such as "I did not want to run people's lives. I did not want to run the economy and I did not want to run the world. I didn't have the authority to do it, and I didn't have the Constitution behind me to do it."Amen, Dr. Paul.

Ron Paul officially singularly endorsed Chuck Baldwin, Constitution Party nominee for President, on September 22, 2008. The article was published on the Campaign for Liberty website, you can find his endorsement at the end, at the following URL:

Here is Chuck Baldwin's response:

Baldwin's website is

Sadly though, due to North Carolina's extremely tough and unconstitutional ballot access laws the Baldwin will not appear on the ballot because the Constitution Party of NC does not have ballot access in the state, nor were they able to obtain write-in status, so individuals cannot officially vote for Baldwin (but a protest vote never hurt).

Chuck Baldwin, Ron Paul's choice for President!

North Carolina's ballot access laws are a traveshamockery. I've heard generally good things about Mr. Baldwin, and I wish the people of North Carolina could vote for him. In addition, although I disagree with him on a number of issues, Ralph Nader should also be on the ballot. It's ridiculous that our ballot access laws are so tight here that he's NEVER been a name on the ballot, although I think he achieved enough votes for his write-in votes to count.

Cynthia McKinney and the Green Party should also be on North Carolina's ballot. If we have enough sense to choose what we want at McDonald's, our legislators ought to let us choose among a number of different candidates for any number of offices.

Your exactly right. Not to mention, they should all be included in the debate! Not to mention, when it comes to write-in, I personally believe any name wrote in that section should be counted, it makes no sense to me to require a candidate to gather signatures even when they will not appear by name on the ballot. Otherwise any votes cast for a candidate who has not gathered the signatures, are literally thrown out (or not counted).

I keep wishing more and more I lived in your district so I could vote for you! Hopefully we can achieve some success in getting these laws broken down in the next couple years so we can actually have some competition in the races.
