Rep. Ron Paul on “The Principles” (2008)

September 11, 2008

On September 10, 2008, Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) called a press conference, in Washington, D.C., at the National Press Club. Joining him at the event were Cynthia McKinney (Green Party), Pastor Chuck Baldwin (Constitution Party) and Ralph Nader (Independent Party). All three are candidates for president on Third Party tickets. Rep. Paul submitted four areas of agreement, The Principles, on which the three candidates, and also Bob Barr (Libertarian Party), who wasnt present, have come together on in a display of unity for the good of the Republic. The four-point Principles deal with bringing the U.S. troops home; protecting our civil liberties, investigating the Federal Reserve and balancing the federal budget. Rep. Paul labeled the current presidential election process, which is dominated by the rigged Two-Party System, a charade. He charged that there is no difference between the Democrats and the Republicans. The Congressman from Texas underscored that over 60 percent of the American people are unhappy with the current nominees of the Two Party System, aka, the Duopoly. As a result, the voters will eventually end up, he said, casting their ballots for the lesser of the two evils.

  2. Thank you one more time:)

    However the items you offer all have to do with the 2008 cycle, when Ralph Nader was still considered a key figure.

    We are now in the early stages of the 2012 cycle; Kevin Zeese seems to now occupy the role Nader had then. McKinney may or may not be the Green candidate again; she has not announced that she’ll seek the GP nomination.

    Let me check to see if Paul has endorsed or is participating in the UNAC-sponsored Oct 6 protests in DC. My recollection is no and no, but I could be wrong. In any case, before the discussion can proceed we need to know where that stands.

    Thanks again:)

    • All the issues are exactly the same now as in 2008.

      The Primary Election comes first. Right now, Ron Paul is the best candidate running on the Republican ticket. There are no opponents to Obama on the Democratic ticket, so we need to support Paul in the Primary Election.

      The General Election is something completely different. We are not there yet.

  3. Thanks to Dandelion for such an extensive response. Alas, I have to confess that I’m what Marshal McLuhan called a “typehead”: I won’t be opening any of these videos. It’s my fault, I said I would “listen” but I meant it metaphorically. Sorry, my bad.

    I have very little time to devote to political matters, and listening/watching to speeches & lectures as a way of absorbing information just takes too long. If you have similar information in postable text form, please post it, and I guarantee to read it.

    I may not like it, but I WILL read it. Thanks again:)

    • I’m sorry, I generally stay out of the comments as I have little time to get into discussions as I’m the one running the blog.

      Basically, broad-based coalitions are when people from various viewpoints come together and agree on some number of issues. In this case, there were 6, I think, that they came together on. Sorry it’s in video format. There is a little bit of text on the post.
