CONSTITUTION PARTY OF OREGON

RON PAUL SHOULD BE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES

Eugene, OR - On January 19, 2007, the Central and Executive Committee of the CONSTITUTION PARTY OF OREGON met and voted to offer our wholehearted endorsement of Congressman Ron Paul for President.

Chairman Jack Alan Brown, Jr. said, “This may seem as an unusual step for the CONSTITUTION PARTY OF OREGON, to endorse a Republican, but our reason is clear - Congressman Paul is the best choice among any of the candidates currently seeking the nomination from the “two” big parties.”

Congressman Paul stands out among the professional politicians of our day:

He has never voted for a tax increase during his ten terms in Congress.
He supports the elimination of any program or bureaucracy that is not specifically authorized by our Constitution.
He would bring our soldiers home, not just from Iraq, but also from the 130 other countries where we have left them to languish.
He advocates a return to sound, constitutional gold and silver money.
He would work to restore the proper balance of power between the states and the federal government.
He would work to abolish the IRS.
He would defend the sovereignty of the United States, while avoiding “nation building” misadventures.
He would initiate legislation that recognizes the legal personhood of the unborn child.

Congressman Ron Paul’s positions are very timely, considering America’s present economic and foreign policy challenges. We urge our fellow Oregonians to inform themselves regarding the message being put forth by his campaign.

David Brownlow, Vice Chairman, said, “It is notable that Ron Paul’s record during his 20 years in Congress is one of dedicated adherence to the oath he swore to defend the constitution, and is entirely consistent with his message today. Maybe change is not always such a good thing.”

The CONSTITUTION PARTY OF OREGON offers Congressman Ron Paul our enthusiastic support.

    Funny how a ex-CP state affiliate is endorsing a candidate that spoke at the IAP state convention, which was held a week after Tampa, and also was pictured shaking hands with Josh Hansen (Chris’s son).

    Isn’t that hypocritical for the ORCP to do?

    Oh, for heaven’s sake. Talk about grasping for straws…..

    Speaking at a state party convention does not mean one is affiliated with that state party.

    Shaking someone’s hand does not mean one is affiliated with that person.

    Having a photograph taken with someone does not mean that both are affiliated with each other.

    Needless to say…

    ...endorsing a Presidential candidate who appeared at another state party’s convention, shook hands with conventioneers, and had his picture taken while doing it, does not in any way mean that it is endorsing any of those things.

    This attempt to paint a caricature of a principled state party organization like the Constitution Party of Oregon, is therefore preposterously ridiculous.

    He did it RIGHT after Tampa.

    That ought to be a slap-in-the-face to you and P-U-ka.

    BTW there’s a ‘LDS for Ron Paul’ website up and running, plus here’s a nice little comment from Ron Paul himself on Mitt Romney’s “Mormon” speech:

    “The recent attacks and insinuations, both direct and subtle, that Gov. Romney may be less fit to serve as president of our United States because of his faith fly in the face of everything America stands for.
    Gov. Romney should be judged fairly, on his record and his character, not on the church he attends.”

    Still think he’s ‘Christian Constitutionalist’ material Reed?

    I recommend informing John and Mike about this if they don’t know.

    I never said that he was. I never endorsed him.

    Again, more wishful thinking without a factual basis.

    Again, no surprise.

  6. Cody Quirk Says:

    Again,

    The facts are there, he’s no Michael Peroutka and doesn’t support a Christian-only America.

    Why support him, period?

  7. Cody Quirk Says:

    Or does the sand feel good covering the heads of those ex-CP’ers?

  8. RRHeustisJr Says:

    These comments make no sense.

    The End.

  9. Cody Quirk Says:

    Because you can’t hear them with all that sand in your ears.

    If you want to be in denial about how Ron Paul would never support your people’s ambitions for America, go ahead and make yourselves look like fools.

    THE End.
