During an interview on Alex Jones’ Nightly News, Pastor Chuck Baldwin concisely dissected Rand Paul’s endorsement of establishment candidate Mitt Romney and gauged its negative impact on the Ron Paul revolution.
Dr. Baldwin said attacks on our precious constitutional liberties and the implementation of an Orwellian high-tech surveillance state can be directly attributed to the foreign policy decisions of the global elite and their ruling political establishment.
Ron Paul consistently opposed this foreign policy agenda on constitutional grounds. Rand Paul’s endorsement of a man who would continue and expand this agenda – as Obama continued and expanded directives handed down to Bush – represents a serious and possibly fatal blow to Ron Paul’s long and unwavering attempt to rekindle the republic and its core principles enshrined in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
Baldwin underscores a prescient fact: Rand Paul’s endorsement of Romney translates into direct support for the neocon foreign policy agenda of war waged against Syria and Iran. It signals that the younger Paul will support a destructive and limitless war waged against manufactured enemies. Rand Paul will also accept and work to implement the police state at home that is a closely related and necessary corollary of the war on terror. His endorsement is at its very core a betrayal of Ron Paul’s legacy and his attempt to restore the republic. It downgrades if not wrecks the Paul name as a standard bearer for liberty.
Rand’s endorsement destroys any hope that he will step up and continue his father’s long and determined battle now that the elder Paul is winding down his congressional career. As Baldwin points out, Rand Paul is in the back pocket of the establishment. Like virtually every other member of Congress, he will be used as a prop in an ongoing war of evil and destruction that will ultimately destroy America.
During the unconstitutional and immoral invasion of Iraq, Obama’s predecessor dismissed the antiwar movement as little more than a focus group. The establishment media lampooned millions of Americans as childish and hopelessly naïve as it pushed the neocon lie that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction, an assertion that was obviously fallacious from the start. Congress embraced that murderous – the murder of 1.5 million Iraqis – lie and enthusiastically supported Bush’s wars. Rand will do the same as the globalists relentlessly drive to realize order out of chaos and mass murder.
Rand Paul has negated any hope that he will fill the space left void by his father. He is now but another cog in the establishment’s machine of political deception and duplicity.
It is up to those of us who cherish liberty and have consistently championed Ron Paul’s message to keep the revolution and alive.
Finally, it should be noted that in 2008 Ron Paul endorsed Chuck Baldwin for president after Bob Barr refused to join a liberty-minded third party alliance. If Dr. Paul continues to support the movement back to a constitutional republic despite his son embracing the Republican Party, why hasn’t he endorsed Gary Johnson, the presidential candidate of the Libertarian Party?
