Ron Paul held a news conference yesterday (9/10) to announce he will not support either of the establishment's candidates (McBama), but instead would like to throw his support behind anyone else!
In a bold move Dr. Paul put the good of the country before the good of any political connection, something that politicians rarely do these days. He was accompanied by major Third Party candidates, Ralph Nader who is running as an independent, Chuck Baldwin who is on the Constitutional Party ticket and Cynthia McKinney running for the Green Party. Dr. Paul declared that:
"The coverage of the presidential election is designed to be a grand distraction. This is not new, but this year, it’s more so than ever.
Pretending that a true difference exists between the two major candidates is a charade of great proportion. Many who help to perpetuate this myth are frequently unaware of what they are doing and believe that significant differences actually do exist. Indeed, on small points there is the appearance of a difference. The real issues, however, are buried in a barrage of miscellaneous nonsense and endless pontifications by robotic pundits hired to perpetuate the myth of a campaign of substance.
The truth is that our two-party system offers no real choice. The real goal of the campaign is to distract people from considering the real issues."
It was one hell of a statement and may have been one of Dr. Paul's most passionately delivered speeches. I suggest everyone checking it out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KZ1l0E4kZQ4&feature=user
Dr. Paul also laid out the points that all these canidates agree on and pledge to support. You can check that out here.
The candidates present all delivered great talking points and are also worth listening to.
This is the message that needs to be spread!!!!
