The OR Constitution Party endorses Ron Paul

This is actually the first time I've heard anything from this party, but it's good to know they're out there and starting to make some noise. I was heartened to learn that Dr Paul got 2nd place in Nevada. That was his best finish in a primary yet. Also, yesterday the Ron Paul campaign pulled in $1,100,000 in donations from over 14,000 people, including more than 3,500 first-time donors. The grass roots are still spreading.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
JANUARY 21, 2008
CONTACT: DAVID BROWNLOW, VICE CHAIRMAN, 503-307-3851

CONSTITUTION PARTY OF OREGON

RON PAUL SHOULD BE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES

Eugene, OR - On January 19, 2008, the Steering Committee of the CONSTITUTION PARTY OF OREGON met and voted to offer our wholehearted endorsement of Congressman Ron Paul for President.

Chairman Jack Alan Brown, Jr. said, “This may seem as an unusual step for the CONSTITUTION PARTY OF OREGON, to endorse a Republican, but our reason is clear – Congressman Paul is the best choice among any of the candidates currently seeking the nomination from the “two” big parties.”

Congressman Paul stands out among the professional politicians of our day:

He has never voted for a tax increase during his ten terms in Congress.
He supports the elimination of any program or bureaucracy that is not specifically authorized by our Constitution.
He would bring our soldiers home, not just from Iraq, but also from the 130 other countries where we have left them to languish.
He advocates a return to sound, constitutional gold and silver money.
He would work to restore the proper balance of power between the states and the federal government.
He would work to abolish the IRS.
He would defend the sovereignty of the United States, while avoiding “nation building” misadventures.
He would initiate legislation that recognizes the legal personhood of the unborn child.

Congressman Ron Paul’s positions are very timely, considering America’s present economic and foreign policy challenges. We urge our fellow Oregonians to inform themselves regarding the message being put forth by his campaign.

David Brownlow, Vice Chairman, said, “It is notable that Ron Paul’s record during his 20 years in Congress is one of dedicated adherence to the oath he swore to defend the constitution, and is entirely consistent with his message today. Maybe change is not always such a good thing.”

The CONSTITUTION PARTY OF OREGON offers Congressman Ron Paul our enthusiastic support.

Huh... Wow. :) I was listening to a debate a few weeks back (I think it was the CNN/YouTube debate) and one of the people asked Ron Paul if he would run as an independent if he didn't get the Republican nomination. He said No because he's a Republican now. But it seems like a lot of people are kind of nudging him along back toward either the Libertarians or toward some other kind of third party. Oooooo - I hope he's officially on the ballot!!! He almost reminds me of Ross Perot back in the day. Had he not dropped out, then re-joined, he could have easily won. This country is SO ready for something new... This guy's our best hope.

I'm pretty pleased that he's still gaining ground in the primaries. =-]
