(NOTE: This article has been slightly edited and was originally written primarily to Constitution Party members back in 2012. It was the time that the Constituion Party had its own presidential candidate, and Ron Paul and Roy Moore ran for the President in the Republican Party, though Moore dropped out not long after announcing.)
There are two men that I admire and respect:
Ron Paul and Roy Moore
Congressman Ron Paul is probably the single most Constitutionally Correct elected official in our Federal Government. Chief Justice Roy Moore is the same within the state government and I credit him with me becoming associated with the Constitution Party.
However, as long as they remain in the Republican Party, they continue to perpetuate the two-party-duopoly, making our job in breaking the chains of enslavement by our governments nearly impossible. Consequently, they will NEVER see one ounce of support; not one red cent; and certainly not my vote.
While I honestly do respect and admire them (I truly do), they have made themselves my opponent.
Sadly, they have allowed themselves to be used by the Republican Establishment as bones to be cast before conservatives in order to keep giving them a glimmer of hope. Just like the dealer at the blackjack table will allow you to win the occasional hand to keep you sitting at the table long enough to bankrupt you, the Republican Establishment allows enough conservatives to win to keep anybody from really threatening the Ivory Tower that they have built around themselves.
Constitutionalists!! Do not allow yourselves to be duped into the system. Do NOT think you can throw your support behind any Republican candidate, without the repercussions of seriously diminishing or even completely destroying our opportunity of providing an alternative to what the Republicans and Democrats are throwing at us.
The sooner you all come to realize this same conclusion and make it known to them, Paul and Moore might make wiser decisions than remain in one of the major parties which are responsible for the plight we find ourselves in here in these United States of America.
It’s hard for me to fathom that there are those of you who have withdrawn from the two-party-duopoly, just to be sucked back in with some delusional hope of seeing a real Constitutionally Correct candidate be offered up by either of the two parties as their official nominee.
It didn’t work in 2008. Supporting Ron Paul DESTROYED the Constitution Party efforts to put forth a Constitutional Candidate. It left our financial resources in ruin and consequently we could not even afford to pay the salaries of our severely minimal staff at the national headquarters. It set the Constitution Party efforts back by at least four years and most probably eight.
Let’s not be planning to make the same mistake.
At the risk of not just stepping on, but stomping on toes here. Do us all a favor, if you are already planning to support Ron Paul or any other Republican candidate for president, just go back to the Republican Party. We need people who understand that supporting a Republican candidate, no matter how wonderful and noble they are, just perpetuates the two-party-duopoly and keeps the establishment in power. This is just something which I CAN NOT abide. It is one of the major contributing factors to the condition that our country is in.
I’m seriously not trying to offend, and I am certainly not trying to make any enemies here. I’m just trying to get you to see the folly of your thinking.
Is there anyone here who seriously believes that if Ron Paul were elected president, we’d see a reformation of the Republican Party? Oh sure, I have no doubt there might be the illusion of it at first. But rest assured, a wolf in sheep’s clothing can’t hide forever, and the Republican’s true nature would eventually show though.
