Constitution Party presidential candidate Chuck Baldwin, (www.Baldwin08.com) is scheduled to address southern Oregon Conservatives and Libertarians (and anyone else who cares about what's happening to this country) at a special campaign rally in Medford, OR on Wednesday, October 22.
Rev. Baldwin is expected to comment on the latest government bailouts and the accelerating meltdown of the US financial system as well as other issues facing the United States and its citizens. The anxiously anticipated rally will be held at Medford's Ramada Inn Convention Center (See below for information).
The popular pastor and talk show host has repeatedly blasted the political establishment and its tools -- the news media, public education, and bureaucrats who work for government agencies.
"We spend more than we earn, we consume more than we produce, we borrow more than we save — and we cling to the fantasy that this can go on forever. The glue that holds this crumbling scheme together is a fiat currency called the Federal Reserve Note, created out of thin air by an international banking cartel called the Federal Reserve," said Baldwin in a recent speech he gave in South Carolina.
The Constitution Party, the largest third party in the United States, based on voter registration (Ballot Access News), has seen the campaign of the party’s Presidential nominee Dr. Chuck Baldwin (www.Baldwin2008.com) gain momentum as more voters appear to be shunning both 'Big Box' candidates.
The Libertarian Party has seen its ranks swell due to former Congressman Bob Barr running for its Presidential poll position. The Baldwin candidacy is garnering widespread support and is on course to offer voters a viable alternative in the November presidential contest. Three weeks ago, Rev. Baldwin was endorsed by Rep. Ron Paul, who dropped out of the Republican presidential race and was considering a run as a third-party candidate. Congressman Paul decided instead to endorse Chuck Baldwin.
In a letter to supporters, Paul wrote, “I’m supporting Chuck Baldwin, the Constitution Party candidate. 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.”
“Voters all over the country have told me, they’re ‘afraid of Obama and don’t trust McCain’,” noted Constitution Party presidential candidate Chuck Baldwin.
are realizing that it's time to throw the bums out. The recent bailout
is proof of that and McBama both supported that colossal robbery of
the American people. Between the insane wars neither Obama nor McCain
will commit to ending, the merging of the two parties and their standard
bearers on every issue from guns to immigration to bigger government,
how can anyone pretend anymore?" said Constitution Party of Oregon
official Mary Starret during an interview with NewsWithViews.com.
"That's why Chuck Baldwin's candidacy is gathering such enormous support," said Starret, a former TV newsanchor and radio talk show host.
Mary points to a recent Fox News poll that shows Americans are considering the third party option as never before -- 47% said they’d vote for a third party candidate.
A Zogby poll showed similar numbers as voters voiced discontent with the current Republican and Democratic candidates: Fully 48% said they are dissatisfied and the survey finds 44% would never vote for Obama; 42% said McCain “will never get” their support!
"Don’t be surprised if third or fourth party presidential candidates garner enough votes in November to make a difference in some of the hotly contested swing states. The polls show more than enough Republican disaffection with John McCain’s candidacy to make a case that Bob Barr, the Libertarian candidate, or another right-of-center candidate could take votes away from the G.O.P. standard bearer," wrote Andrew Kohut in the New York Times.
"And on the Democratic side, Barack Obama has to worry about defections of not only Hillary Clinton’s supporters, but also of liberals, who are beginning to grumble that he is moving too much toward the center," he added.
"We are very happy to have Dr. Chuck Baldwin out to Oregon. He will make stops in Portland, Eugene, Grants Pass and Medford. Oregonians will have a chance to hear the man who has been endorsed by Congressman Ron Paul! We won't have to choose between the evil of two lessors. Those who respect the U.S. Constitution can make a confident choice by voting for Chuck Baldwin for President,” said Suzanne Brownlow, the communications director for the Constitution Party of Oregon
Brownlow's husband, Dave Brownlow, is the Constitution Party's Oregon candidate for the US Senate.
"Chuck Baldwin will clearly represent freedom-loving Americans with a strong executive voice, safely withdrawing the undeclared military occupation from the Middle East so America's economy can prosper again from within its protected borders," said Kevin Goodrich who is organizing Baldwin's Medford visit.
"Minor-party constitutionalists like me have learned that major party, anti-evil votes never win when most Americans ultimately lose, so with Ron Paul's endorsement of Chuck Baldwin, the strength of America’s freedom vote is unified behind a Presidential candidate that respects and abides by the U.S. Constitution’s protective measures," he said in an interview with NewsWithViews.com.
Baldwin for President rally will be hosted by the popular Medford's
KMED AM morning host and program director Bill
"I'm excited and honored to emcee Chuck Baldwin's campaign stop in southern Oregon, as this is the year for a principled 3rd Party vote. As I see it, the 'Big Box' candidates have failed us," said Meyer, a 28-year broadcast veteran.
"There just isn't much substantial difference between Senators McCain and Obama on so many issues. Enter Chuck Baldwin, a serious man with serious ideas on the proper role of government. If you seriously wish to restore the republic, Chuck deserves your vote. The adage of 'voting for the lesser of two evils' no longer applies," said Meyer during a telephone interview with NewsWithViews.com.
