    I'm curious why you would even bother to post this snippet of information without giving us the benefit of your opinions of the man, a site where we could go to find out who and what he is in his own words, or a support site for his campaign. Why bother?

    Are you a Constitutionalist? What are they? How do they differ from Islamic terrorists and Communits sympathizers and Lyndon La Rouche's people?

    Baldwin is the pastor of a Baptist church in Fla. He's extremely right wing, thinks Bush is too liberal.

    Great News! Another name on a ballot that will lose to the on-going write in campaign that Americans have with Mickey Mouse.

    Really, just taking a few votes away from McCain. I doubt it, but hopefully he can win
    %1 in Florida and make a dent in that state. A vote for Baldwin, is a vote for Barak.

    I should think the same thing would hold true with a vote for Bob Barr. He hopes to be on the ballot in 48 states and a poll by Rasmussen earlier this month showed him polling at 6%. In fact in a 4 way race with Nader it was Obama-42% McCain-38% Barr-6% and Nader-4%. The difference is, I doubt if Nader will get on anywhere near the 48 state ballots that Barr running as a Libertarian should be on. It could make a difference somewhere.

    I think Barr might get my vote if I could see the rest of his time spent with Borat before they cut off the footage. I have always wondered what was said after that.

    Actually This Chuck Baldwin is a radio talk show host in Iowa, yes he is a pastor, but not a baptist. He a little bit more liberal then Bush, though he does like a quite a few of his decision. (He lost a lot of votes when people say that, I know), but The constitutionalist is the third largest party in the nation, so hopefully he'll make a dent. I Just don't want any candidate getting the election easily (which I'm sure wont happen)

    Good point. The best we can probably hope for is a plurality win.

    Interesting. I didn't think Barr would perform that well. We'll have to wait and see. Even though I'm a member of the Libertarian Party, I just can't vote for Barr. And Baldwin is not my cup of tea either - I can't vote for a preacher. I guess I'll be writing in Ron Paul's name.
