Iconoclast and former GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul has made a huge announcement, and plans to change the upcoming election with his endorsement of some guy named Chuck Baldwin who is from something called the Constitution Party…
In a letter to supporters, Paul wrote, "I'm supporting Chuck Baldwin, the Constitution Party candidate."
Paul went on to say, "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."
Baldwin is that one-two punch combination of Pundit and Pastor — his evangelical church is in Pensacola Florida. His party believes in abolishing the UN, ending the Iraq War, a repeal of income, sales, and inheritance taxes, a "constitutionally limited form of government", as well as of course, immigration reform.
I'm thumbing through my copy of the Constitution right now to find the section that describes that the government must build a giant fucking wall around its borders to keep the brown people out.
The Constitution Party claims that Baldwin's candidacy will put a dent in the "big box" candidates, so look out, Whole Foods Obama And Ikea McCain!
The conventional wisdom suggests that 3rd party candidates don't make much difference in the outcome, but the Constitution Party is at least the fourth or fifth party, so who knows what havoc they might reak?
