Who is Chuck Baldwin? He is the Constitution Party candidate for President of the United States and I'll be voting for him tomorrow. You should as well and here is why.
You've heard the two main party candidates rant and rave and bash each other. You've seen them play every trick in the book they can to get elected and spend billions to essentially try and buy your vote with their mass ad campaigns and promises to individual groups of special handouts. Obama and McCain both voted for the bailout to buy big businesses support of their campaigns and also to pay off their friends on Wall Street with your hard earned tax dollars. What kind of action is that from someone who claims to care about you? You've heard all their ridiculous campaign promises that everyone knows politicians never keep - yet the people seem to forget this time and time again every four years. They both are promoting fear of "the other guy" in order to scare you into supporting them. It is simply sickening and this campaign has been going on now for nearly two years.
Those who vote for the losing candidate tomorrow will be licking their wounds, depressed and in another 3 years be complaining at the lack of choices they have when the two parties stick them with another two crap choices.
Well, there is something you can do about that. Vote for a candidate that stands for what this country is based on, fairness for all, not individuals or groups.
Chuck Baldwin is the only candidate in the race who opposes illegal immigration. Watch this video below of Chuck Baldwin and his stance on illegal immigration. He is virtually the only candidate who has addressed it. Libertarian candidate Bob Barr has claimed to oppose illegal immigration, but his track record speaks otherwise, so he is not a viable third party candidate. Barr said that he is in it for Bob Barr and to see how many votes he can get. This prompted former candidate Ron Paul to endorse Chuck Baldwin for president.

I don't agree with everything Baldwin stands for, I differ with him on abortion for instance. Baldwin is pro-life. But as an overall package Baldwin is the only one that fits within my idea of what a president should be. Someone who is in it for the country and not themselves. McCain has run for president multiple times. He has always been in this for himself and his ambitions. Obama is so obviously in it for himself and thinks so highly of himself that his socialist agenda is a method of buying votes from the poor of society. He will dupe them later on and all will suffer in the long run - rich, poor and middle class alike.
There are those out there who will say my vote for Chuck Baldwin will be "throwing your vote away". Well that's nice. It's nice to know that there are those out there who have no brain and can't decide for themselves who matches with their views the best. They would just vote for one guy to prevent the other guy from winning. That is the most ridiculous reason to cast your vote. It's also nice that they are bashing the fact that you actually got up and voted. They will attack you more for voting your conscience than if you didn't vote at all - as millions do every election. The anger is simply uncalled for. And yes, they actually get angry, it's almost laughable. I have received it first-hand.
Either way, I urge you to vote for Chuck Baldwin. The Constitution party cannot do you wrong. They follow the Constitution as best they can - and while sometimes that may conflict with a few of your views - it is what this country was founded on and what this country was meant to be. It was not meant to be two people going to different groups, promising them more taxpayer dollars if they promote them and basically buying support for their own self benefit.
So vote Chuck Baldwin and no matter who wins you can have a clear conscience that you at least did the right thing for your country.

I agree that voting for republican/democrat is one party rule.
Pro life: I have switched to pro life recently. I think abortion is disgusting anyway but what really bothers me is that dems think that if women have a right to abortion then they have a right for taxpayers to pay for the abortion. Dems can't accept a straightforward victory, they always have an ulterior motive waiting in the wings. Pro life is not going to jail women but shut down abortion clinics.
In Calif we have Prop 8, stopping gay marriage. I am inclined to vote no, live and let live. But I heard on Air America that dems have another ulterior motive. If Prop 8 is defeated, they want hate speech laws with teeth (bye, bye, freedom of speech).
And Dianne Feinstein says we must support gay marriage because discrimination is wrong. I sent her an email asking if she now opposes affirmative action (discrimination). What a surprise, no answer.
