Conservative Republicans Have Only One Choice In 2008
American Chronicle ^ | August 30, 2007 | Chuck Baldwin (moderator note: Constitution Party VP candidate)

Posted on 08/30/2007 7:51:17 AM PDT by rface

Let's cut to the chase: conservative Republicans have only one choice for President in 2008: Congressman Ron Paul of Texas. Unlike the GOP frontrunners, Paul is the real deal.

No real conservative could support Rudy Giuliani, Mitt Romney, John McCain, Fred Thompson, or Newt Gingrich. When it comes to historic conservative principles, each of these men is as phony as a three dollar bill. That they are now attempting to cast themselves as conservatives is more than laughable: it is downright hilarious.

[ snip ]

If one wants a true photograph of how a congressman or senator votes on conservative, constitutional issues, the best place to look is the Freedom Index in the New American Magazine. Ron Paul almost always ranks as the most conservative congressman from either chamber or either party. His current ranking is 100%, which is a score that few congressmen or senators, except Ron Paul, ever achieve. And Paul does it routinely.

See the Freedom Index here: http://www.jbs.org/files/fi-110-1.pdf

[ snip ]

Ron Paul said these words, "I have never been one who is comfortable talking about my faith in the political arena. In fact, the pandering that typically occurs in the election season I find to be distasteful. But for those who have asked, I freely confess that Jesus Christ is my personal Savior, and that I seek His guidance in all that I do. I know, as you do, that our freedoms come not from man, but from God. My record of public service reflects my reverence for the Natural Rights with which we have been endowed by a loving Creator."

Could conservative Christians ask for a testimony that is any clearer?

Should Ron Paul win the Republican nomination, he would almost certainly win the general election. His constitutional, common-sense ideals would be attractive to such a broad range of voters, I dare say that he would win a landslide victory, no matter who the Democrats nominated. Conservatives, independents, libertarians, union members, and even some liberals (mostly those who oppose the war in Iraq and Bush's Big Brother schemes) would support Ron Paul. The challenge is winning the Republican nomination.

Conservative Republicans have only one choice for President in 2008: Ron Paul.

If a Conservative like Ron Paul is not the GOP candidate, then Hillary deserves to win.

We don't need some empty suit!!! (Fred Thompson)

We don't need a Baby Killer! (Rudy Giuliani)

We don't need some cult religious kook! (you-know-who!)

We need a Tall, Strong, Handsome, Muscle Bound Texan to Kick Hillary's Ass!

If we don't get Ron Paul to represent the Conservatives in the White House - then it might as well be Hillary!

Sounds like you have a man-crush on Mr. Paul!! Seriously though, I heard most of his interview on Medved on Monday and Ronnie-boy didn’t acquit himself very well on either domestic or foreign policy. We’re much better with Duncan Hunter.

It appears that REVEREND Chuck Baldwin of the Crossroads Baptist Church is doing exactly what true conservatives deplore in the ‘Rats, using black churches to promote their political agenda.

In truth, the FEC ought to be taking a good hard look at Reverend Baldwin.

No real conservative could support ......blah blah blah

What an incredibly pompous statement.

Paul is uncomfortable talking about his faith - Why? Is he embarrassed?

As a “real” conservative shouldn’t Paul know whether homosexuality is a sin or not?
As a real conservative shouldn’t he stop blaming the US for islamic fascism?

There will be more posts from others of FR I am sure......

But the arrogance of this article makes me want to hurl.

If I want my wife and daughters forced to wear burkas, all of us forced to give up our freedoms and convert to Islam and forced to kneel and pray to Allah or beheaded, I will vote for Ron Paul. Since I understand the threat to us and the real dangers of retreating and surrendering in Iraq to al Qaeda, I WILL NEVER vote for the blame America first, we deserved 9/11, flag waving, surrender monkey Ron Paul.

If you believe that the federal government is, by its nature, mostly incompetent, corrupt and inefficient...and if you believe James Madison's view that the Constitution assigns a small and specific rol to the federal government and leaves everything else to the states and the respective state Constitutions...then I don't see how you support any Republican except either Ron Paul or Tom Tancredo

The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the Federal Government, are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State Governments are numerous and indefinite. The former will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negociation, and foreign commerce; with which last the power of taxation will for the most part be connected. The powers reserved to the several States will extend to all the objects, which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, liberties and properties of the people; and the internal order, improvement, and prosperity of the State
--James Madison, Federalist 45

______________________

Last I checked we still have 5 months before the primaries. Hunter is the best candidate on the issues and as a man. Actually, from what I know of Ron Paul, his personal life is exemplary as well. Hunter will not move up if his natural supporters wait for others to start the momentum . . . conservatives have to create it.

"R. Paul beats both of them in poll data"

Spammed poll data by trolls, liberals and every anti-war nut in attempt to show Ron Paul has support in a general election, he does not. Ron Paul will not break 2% nationwide in GOP race for POTUS.

2008 is a looooong way away. Relax. The best (candidate) is yet to come. A lot of things will happen between now and then that will clear up a cloudy political picture. Think war, terrorism, economy, campaign finance excesses, personal revelations...etc.

No you are wrong.

The furry of the past two weeks, the excellent results in the hashish straw polls and online, the excitement among the deep base of the DU antiwar crowd and the "real" conservitives has had a major impact.

He has blazed, like a rocket, all the way to 3% in the real polls...

What principles? Continued destruction of the separation of powers between the states and the national government? All in the name of doing what is 'right'? Last time social 'conservatives' wielded their big stick to pass an Amendment for what is 'right' it was overturned by another Amendment.

Work within your state to change the minds of the public on moral issues. But quit mucking about in Washington to pass some national moral policy

Paul’s comments about the U.S. to blame for Islamic facism were way too over the top for me. I couldn’t support him in a primary but would vote for him or anyone else over Hillary.

That leaves us with Thompson, Huckabee, Hunter, and Tancredo. At the end of the day, Thompson will likely be the nominee.

He is running a close second to Thompson in first place wins.

I can defend me and mine. I will put down many with my 12 gauge and glock 40s. It is all you wimpy Paulnuts, liberals and can’t we just convert to Islam and not cause a problem surrendercrats that would give up the fight and thus too much ground on our soil for those of willing to stand and fight them. Instead of killing and defeating them off on foreign soil, Paul would rather fight them here.
