Baldwin spends the week in Utah, drumming up support

Constitution Party candidate Chuck Baldwin has spent the week in Utah, one of the Republican Party’s biggest strongholds—and according to Party officials, the visit is going very well. Baldwin’s experience as a Baptist minister and radio talk show host
provides the communications skills necessary to spread the word - now he just needs more forums to speak.

Here are some highlights from the Salt Lake Tribune coverage:

If voters elected Baldwin, the status quo could expect a seismic shakedown. In addition to outlawing abortion, Baldwin also intends to eliminate the Internal Revenue Service, federal income tax and the Department of Education. After shrinking government, Baldwin says he would fund it through a 10 percent general tariff on all goods entering the country.

“I think we’ll do amazingly well this year. We’ve struggled for so long and all of a sudden, it’s mushrooming,” Utah Constitution Party Chairman Frank Fluckiger says. “For every two Republicans that come over our way, we’re getting one Democrat and one independent.”

The Constitution Party expects to be on the ballot in at least 40 states.

Here’s additional coverage of Baldwin’s Utah swing, from the St. George Spectrum.

    Hmmm. A ten percent tariff sounds fine.

    Do away with the “FORCED” Income tax and replace it with a constitutional tariff sounds legit to me. I don’t have to purchase most of the foreign JUNK anyway…

    Utah will not vote for Baldwin. He is anti Mormon. Google anti Mormon and Chuck Baldwin and see for yourself.

    Then why are LDS Constitutionalists backing him, BTW, how is Chuck Baldwin being quoted by theocrats on matters not relating to the Church anti-Mormon?
