Chuck Baldwin: McCain using Sarah Palin as a ‘trick’ to get conservative support

Chuck Baldwin, the Constitution Party candidate for President, says “by all appearances, Governor Palin is a true conservative.” As evidence, he adds something we haven’t seen elsewhere: “She was rightly critical of the invasion of Iraq, once calling it a ‘war for oil.’”

The problem, he says, is this:

Let’s face it: John McCain is using Sarah Palin as inducement to trick conservatives into accepting his liberal, big-government, globalist candidacy. And, sadly, it is working.

“Herein lies the problem for Sarah Palin,” says Baldwin. “How can a principled conservative support the policies and actions of an unprincipled globalist such as John McCain? As Vice President, Palin will be required to promote and defend McCain’s big-government, liberal, and globalist plans.”

    The problem for Palin isn’t limited to supporting McCain “globalist” policies alone - presumably meaning his warmongering. She has her hand on the knee of a Dr. Mengele as well. McCain supports the unconsionable destruction of embryos for scientific research. Nothing pro-life about that. But then again, Palin is ReichsChurch isn’t she. What would you expect from the ReichsChurch?

  2. Craig M. Says:

    I know nothing about the Church in the aforementioned post, but yes, it appears that Sarah Palin is a true conservative and gave a great speech on Wednesday. By herself, she is a great candidate and is well qualified for the position. However, her policies are not going to line up with McCain’s, as Chuck mentioned. If elected, I can only hope that somehow, someway she can convince the new prez that shamnesty is the Pandora’s Box of the 21st Century. According to the Heritage Foundation, no less than 171 million new immigrants would be granted citizenship in the next 20 years due to relatives and new births at current birth rates. Not sure if your highways have any traffic problems now, but they would in a short period of time if shamnesty is passed.

    Alas, as expected, the gullible sleeping Christians are falling for this duo hook, line, & sinker. I guess the CP and the Libbys will have to wait another 4 years to prove that globalism still does not work.

    For the 8th month in a row, America has lost jobs. 84,000 jobs in August alone were lost due to both major parties supporting globalism. It’s catching up fast.

    Gov. Palin demonstrates the people really want someone who reflects the CP Platform. There’s just too blind to see it.

  4. rw3 Says:

    All it takes is a token conservative who happens to be a pretty chick and everybody’s principles fall by the wayside. Man some people can be bought pretty CHEAP! But then again so can McCain!

  5. Deemer from California Says:

    Assuming that McCain/Palin wins in November, the sole job that she
    truly has is Overseeing the Senate. As a Conservative philosophically,
    it could be quite interesting when the next SELL-OUT treaty is introduced
    to the Senate. Then we will see how much steel she has in her. Then
    again, if McCain/Palin loses she will automatically become a “leading”
    candidate for the 2012 campaign. Which might lead to all-out war in
    many Republican Party state organizations. A war that could settle for
    the next 25 years the direction & focus of the National Party. A split
    off of conservative minded small government people that may finally
    switch to the Constitution or Libertarian Parties based on their personal
    social goals & objectives. The most extreme situation would be for the
    Republicans to become like the Liberal Party oin the United Kingdom.
    No longer able to win a National election but still strong in certain areas
    of the Country and the swing/determining votes on some legislation.

  6. Richard G. Says:

    Chuck is right. If we get lucky the American people will wake up to this sham. Also I hope they wake up to the reality that “superstar” Obama has introduced no change what-so-ever.

  7. Carl Says:

    While campaigning as part of the McCain ticket, she will parrot McCain’s talking points. This is the way of VPs. Should she become president, she will then govern as she sees fit. Look closely at her record for data on what she really thinks, and ignore her speeches on the campaign trail.

    Note how the first George Bush ran as a RINO when he was running for president in 1980, then talked conservative when he was Reagan’s VP, and then went back into RINO mode when he became president.

  8. Jonathan Says:

    Barr is the word

  9. William Says:

    Uhh, actually, Mr. Baldwin, I don’t think that Palin is anti-Iraq war AT ALL. She was quoted in a Yahoo News Article on Wednesday as saying it was a “mission from God.” I find that very, very disturbing.

  10. Erich L Says:

    Palin gave a great speech?

    Oh yes, let’s vote for the blah blah blah blah blah blah blah, promise, promise, blah blah, promise, kiss a baby here, kiss a baby there, promise pro-life here, promise it there, blah blah blah blah blah blah.

    The Republican Party must think that conservative God-revering Americans are nothing more than stupid French Toy Poodles, who flip over, expose their bellies, roll out their tongues, and pant uncontrollably over the GOP’s VP appointment of Palin as a “conservative talking head Band-Aid” for McCain’s atrocious record.

    Since when does a VP have any effect over a president in the USA?
    See: http://www.lewrockwell.com/orig9/panyard2.html

    The b.s. “pro-life” GOP controlled the entire federal government from 2000 to 2006 and nothing was done to overturn Roe v. Wade or end legal abortion-on-demand; they ignored Ron Paul’s Sanctity of Life Act every year! The GOP had the power to END abortion! Abortion is murder, at any stage!

    McCain has an F- rating with Gun Owners of America, and regarding character, FactCheck.org reports that McCain had multiple adulterous affairs while married to Carol, mother of three, who stated, “I attribute it more to John turning forty and wanting to be twenty-five again than I do to anything else.” McCain left Carol for Cindy, 18 years his junior and the heir to an Arizona brewing fortune. Some people care about the character of a candidate’s entire life.

    I implore you to help end the GOP charade and vote Chuck Baldwin for president.

    If you’ve forgotten what abortion is really about, I beg you to visit:

  11. Andy Craig Says:

    McCain picked Palin because of all the meaningless nonsense like here gender and the fact that’s she’s a young Washington outsider, not because of her record as Governor (and of course, that reflects solely on him, not Palin). It had nothing to do with trying to appease the libertarian wing of the GOP- as evidenced by his total refusal to even acknowledge the existence of Ron Paul.

    I suspect Palin was a strong small-government conservative in Alaska because that’s what sells in Alaska. It was more politics than any real conviction for her, as evidenced by her willingness to share the ticket with proto-fascist McCain.

  12. A.G. Says:

    William: Palin was misquoted as saying that the Iraq war is a mission from God. What she really said is as follows: “Pray for our military men and women who are striving to do what is right. Also, for this country, that our leaders, our national leaders, are sending [U.S. soldiers] out on a task that is from God. That’s what we have to make sure that we’re praying for, that there is a plan and that plan is God’s will.”

    To me, it sounds like she’s basically saying that she HOPES that the war is from God (otherwise we’re breaking God’s will and are screwed), but she doesn’t know if that’s the case.

    That said, I think Palin will probably prove to be fairly pro-war as the campaign continues. I don’t think McCain or his advisors will let her slip.

  13. Jason Says:

    Well if Chuck Baldwin said it America will listen!! He is one of the most well known, influential leaders and authoritive spokesman in America. If I was John McCain I would be shaking in my boots. Baldwin may have just cut into McCain’s support and swung the election his way.

  14. Jason Says:

    sarcasim….

  15. Proud Conservative Says:

    Sara Palin has affronted God by bringing forth a bastard grandchild

  16. Porter Rockwell Says:

    The selection of the Governor of Alaska is a pure stroke of genius on the part of the McCain campaign. In one bold move, the senior Senator from Arizona completely castrated the howling pit chihuahuas of the right wing.

    Any reason for the socalled disaffected right to abandon the GOP for either the likes of Bob Barr, or the Ayatollah Baldwin has evaporated. Hell…She’s even secured him the support of the gun nuts.

    This much I know, McCain isn’t smart enough to see the genius in the Palin pick, so my question is this: Who is the brainiac behind McCain…waiting to take the mantle of the next Karl Rove???

  17. Eric Dondero Says:

    Actually, McCain is using Palin in a good way to get LIBERTARIAN SUPPORT, not necessarily Conservatives. He already pretty much had the Conservs; It’s the libertarians he was lacking. And now Post-Palin he has us libertarians, as well.

    Clever move for McCain.

  18. Eric Dondero Says:

    The audacity of Mr. Baldwin, who hasn’t even been elected dog catcher.

    Bob Barr was polling a solid 5 to 6% nationwide. The one poll I saw where Baldwin was included had him at .2% lower than Cynthia McKinney.

    This was not a move by McCain to attract Conservative votes from Baldwin, this was a move to attract Libertarian swing voters.

  19. James Says:

    This is a chance for Baldwin to show his deep respect for gun rights and pull off an assassination. Maybe he can sucker Keyes to do it for him.

  20. Proud Conservative Says:

    Oh please, ignoramus. Keyes is nothing but a Naderite gun-grabber. He’d bee to chicken even to hold an unloaded 22.

  21. Porter Rockwell Says:

    Ayatollah Baldwin is simply a eunuch in a whorehouse.

    He’s wasted everyones time and effort.

    Bob Barr is simply an unemployed Congressman who sees yet another campiagn as a way to pay the bills and keep riding that adrenalin high that comes with the silly season.

    Alan Keyes…well what can be said of that fool????

  22. Andy Craig Says:

    And now Post-Palin he has us libertarians, as well.

    And once again Dondero demonstrates his deep, lasting commitment to the principles of liberty.

  23. Jason Says:

    Seriously, who cares what Chuck Baldwin says much less thinks. He is about as relevant as my neighbor. Do you know who my neighbor is? Exactly.

    Constitution Party,

    Chuck Baldwin
    Worst
    Nominee
    Ever

    Even as far as Third Party stuff goes. The CP ticket will 100,000 votes tops. And I believe that is stretching it.

    Do you guys realize that there are mid town, hell even small town mayors, who have raised more money than Baldwin and Castle running for president!!

    Now that is saying something. The CP is a paper party completely empty of any real vision, leadership or judgement. There is absolutely no appeal or support no matter how much a few of their members may argue. If they were really the “nations third largest party” BS with members suspodedly numbering over 300,000 then why the hell doesn’t Baldwin at least have $300,000 in campaign funds? Because the party doesn’t exist and the members just like to sit around and discuss principles and God and Republic without ever really intending to get involved.

    The proof is in the pudding. The nominated a complete unknown, inexperienced and untested wannabe.

  24. Clark Says:

    ..with phony ‘Libertarians’ like dunder0, who needs the fucking republicrats?.. ;o)

  25. Porter Rockwell Says:

    Would someone please pass the bong over this way?

    Sarah Palin was selected to completely neuter the riligious right of the GOP. No one gives a rusty rats behind over the so called Libertarian vote.

    Just because Sarah was the Mayor of the Meth capitol of America’s Last Frontier, does not a libertarian make.

  26. Jeff Says:

    Isn’t Chuck Baldwin anti- Mormon?

  27. Jonathan Says:

    THIS IS AN EMAIL I SENT to every email address on foxnews including
    [email protected]’ . PLEASE everyone email as many networks and tell them as an Independent voter you take offense to this:

    For the last 30 minutes Fox News has been talking about the latest Rasmussen poll released today Sunday September 7th showing:

    McCain 48%
    Obama 48%

    To be fair they are not the only network doing this.

    WOW that’s great for ratings, the only problem is if you add them up you come up with 96%

    SO, what you are telling America ONLY 4% of the people comprise UNDECIDED VOTERS, BOB BARR VOTERS, RALPH NADER VOTERS, and still other Third Party candidates such as McKinney and Baldwin.

    I’ll be sure to pass this along in what a sham the media and these pollsters who are being paid by the Duopoly are doing basically saying AMERICANS ARE STUPID.

    Keep the farce as this always galvanizes people to Third Parties as you prove corruption has no end.

  28. Jonathan Says:

    The latest polls show McCain at 48% and Obama at 48%

  30. John Lowell Says:

    hg,

    Was the guy that created this youtube old enough to vote? From the sound of his voice, I’d have a hard time believing he’d qualify for the cut off age necessary to post on most blogs. One thing’s for sure, he isn’t young enough not to have been introduced into the ways of anti-religion and Christian baiting. And it looks as though that you’re not too young for that either, filth. Do us a favor, next time you post here, wear a bed-sheet. We’re all in favor of truth in advertising here.

  31. Donna Says:

    If Gun Owners of America rated McCain with an “F”, how does the NRA rate him? What’s the difference?

    Is Palin for, or against, Bush’s Privatized Occupation for Profit in Iraq?

  32. Larry Breazeale,Msgt.(ret.)USAF Says:

    JUAN “McAMNESTY McCAIN” needs all the “beauty queens” and “pretty faces” he can get! IT IS A DISTRACTION! It is an attempt to keep the so-called conservatives in his rotten GOP off his back, as he continues his ordained “CFR” (Council on Foreign Relations) domestic & international AGENDA….MORE foreign aid, MORE no-win undeclared wars,MORE tax & spend, MORE “comprehensive immigration reform..aka: AMNESTY”, etc., PALIN or no PALIN. Palin is just a ‘prop job’...anyone who can’t see through THAT is a downright FOOL. It is just LIPSTICK on a pig.

    You NEVER say ANYTHING important when YOU POST!! It’s usually the SAME thing over AND OVER again!! STOP.

    BALDWIN was a HORRIBLE pick for the CP!! Face it. “SMALL TOWN” Mayors can raise MORE money than Baldwin/Castle and THEY are “running” for “PRESIDENT”!!

    BALDWIN is a nobody with NO real “ACCOMPLISHMENTS” in private or PUBLIC LIFE!! The CP is a HUGE waste of MONEY and ENERGY!!

  34. Cooper Says:

    Ha-Ha-Ha. I thought I was the only one that thought that. Let me try.

    CHUCK BALDWIN is the only REAL choice in 08!! The “REPUBLICRATS” will wheel out the SAME old “candidates” like they do EVERY YEAR!! The lesser of the “TWO EVILS” isn’t a choice. No one can match BALDWIN’s policies and ideas on where AMERICA needs to “GO”!! He is by far the MOST qualified to LEAD THIS GREAT NATION!! Not “Juan” McCain and “Barry” H. Obama!!

    And as for you BARR “BOYS” keep waving those flags but come ELECTION DAY Baldwin/Castle will be the real “WINNERS”!!

    I stand on everything I say and I am proud of the PLATFORM of the Constitution party, issue by issue. I am equally VERY PROUD of Chuck Baldwin and Darrell Castle as our candidates. I know them both, personally. I am very picky just WHO I make friends with. These are men of HONOR and INTEGRITY. If you have a problem with that, maybe you should just go soak your head ‘sunnyboy’.
