    Michael Peroutka Invites Chuck Baldwin To Be His Running Mate
    By Chuck Baldwin
    April 27, 2004


    Constitution Party presidential candidate Michael Peroutka will officially and publicly invite yours truly to be his Vice Presidential
    running mate during a special ceremony in Pensacola, Florida, this Sunday, May 2, 2004. The event will take place at the facilities of
    Crossroad Baptist Church, 6800 Mobile Highway (U.S. Hwy. 90), at 6:00 pm CST. A special celebration banquet will accompany the
    proceedings.

    Regular readers of this column know my feelings regarding the dismal track record of the national Republican Party to faithfully
    represent Christian, conservative, constitutional principles. I firmly believe that until the American people awaken to the futility of supporting the national Republican Party, conservative principles will never be promoted or defended in Washington, D.C.

    It is also my belief that the best alternative to the Republican Party at the national level is the Constitution Party (formerly known as
    the U.S. Taxpayers Party). Nationwide, the Constitution Party has the third largest number of registered members behind only the two
    major parties. Furthermore, the Constitution Party will likely be on the ballot in over 40 states during the general election this
    November. That means that it is theoretically possible for a Constitution Party presidential nominee to actually obtain enough electoral votes to win the November election.

    Beyond that, the Constitution Party stands solidly and uncompromisingly for the values and principles I believe in. It is the only national party that is unashamed and unafraid to represent
    conservative, constitutional government. Accordingly, I proudly changed my voter registration from the Republican Party to the
    Constitution Party.

    At the same time, I must candidly admit that never in my wildest imagination did I expect the presumptive Constitution Party presidential nominee, Michael Peroutka, to ask me to join him on his ticket. To be perfectly honest, his invitation caught me totally off guard. It was not something I sought or anticipated. However,
    after much deliberation, prayer, and counsel, I have decided to accept Michael's invitation.

    I will be proud to promote and represent Michael Peroutka and the Constitution Party to the voters of America for this year's presidential election. I have known Michael for several years, and count him a dear friend. I believe him to be a man of great integrity, unflinching courage, and deep humility. He would be a
    terrific president!

    It would be our privilege to be able to meet as many friends and supporters as possible at the upcoming announcement celebration this Sunday, May 2, in Pensacola, Florida. If you are able to join us, please come!

    For any additional information, please call my office at 850-944-3544 or email my administrative assistant, Patti Sheffield, at
    [email protected]. The fax number at my office is 850-944-0577.

    If you have not already done so, please visit Michael's web site at www.peroutka2004.com . Michael and I covet your prayers.

    Didn't realize that he was from LaPorte, Indiana, a lovely town near Lake Michigan.

    However, Ken, you raise a serious question by starting this thread. That is, should an ordained and working pastor lower himself to seek public office.

    Look at what Pat Robertson did. He resigned to run for President and then had himself re-ordained (I think). What a circus.

    If my pastor ran for public office, I would change churches because of his stinking thinking. Political office is not for ordained ministers. Even the Pope made a congressman decide between elected office and remaining a priest, as you may remember. Winning souls is more urgent than winning votes.

    Though I like Chuck Baldwin's commentary (though he is at times too extreme and seems too much part of the Christian Right) he should resign the pastorate if he accepts. Why someone would leave a calling God gave him to run for a temporal lower office seems to be comprising the faith. He can accomplish more good as a Pastor than a VP.

    There is no lower calling if you are in the will of God. BTW, the idea of "temporal" and "spiritual" being separate and in opposition to one another springs from an ancient heresy known as "pietism". It has more in common with Hinduism than with Christianity.

    He can accomplish nothing good outside the will of God. If God wants him in politics and he stays in the pulpit he is wasting his time. And vice-versa.

    AMEN Pennsylvania Jim...

    I'm always hearing preachers talk about being "in the will of God" and "following Him" etc. Perhaps this IS God's will for Mr. Baldwin, how do WE know? I wish I knew God's will for MY life. I can't possibly know His will for someone else's.

    "Even the Pope made a congressman decide between elected office and remaining a priest,"

    "I would assume that he would step down as Pastor if he became Vice President."

    I don't know, in the 1920's the 2 most colourfull members of parliament in my country were both men of the cloth.

    Dominee Kersten headed the SGP an extreme Calvinist party he had started himself.
    Pastor Nolens headed the RKSP (Roman Catholic State Party), his peculiar choiche of motto was: Utrique Fidelis (=loyal to both), declaring his equall allegiance to the RCC and the Netherlands.
    They REALLY didn't like eachother.

    If it is really God's will for Baldwin to be in politics instead of the pastorate, then Peroutka will win.

    If Peroutka does not win, Baldwin is a liar and incapable of discerning God's will.

    Ha! How 'bout that burden Baldwin. Guess what is going to come true? I don't have to guess.

    Btw, I guess the colors of the CP are going to be changed to Pink, White, and YELLOW now.

    Maybe you should give Daniel David a call. He, apparently, can tell.

    Well, let us see PJ:

    1. Baldwin is supposedly called of God to the pastorate.
    2. He will accept a political position because he beleives God is calling him to that.
    3. Peroutka will be smeared like a lovebug on my bumper.
    4. Balwin will prove he is clueless in discerning God's will, because God supposedly called him to the political realm.

    Don't you get it? When they lose, he will prove to be either a liar or incompetent. Nevermind. Drink the kool-aid while it is cold.

    Ummm... Yeah... I don't think anyone can really tell, know God's will for their lives, but it's fun to read the comments!! I wish I could get away with writing such simplistic logic parsers, it would make my software career really take off!! (If simple logic parsers actually worked all the time that is.)

    While I agree with much of the "Constitution Party" platform, I vehemently oppose Chuck Baldwin because he is a political bigot. He has had it in for our President from the get-go, and has used his pulpit, radio show and website to bash the current administration without a drop of mercy. He doesn't so much disagree with the Republican platform as he dislikes George Bush, Jr. Go read for yourself and see. He cannot see the logic in taking the fight to the enemy and exterminating them before they attack us again, and that makes him weak and foolish. His socio-political aspirations, however noble, will no doubt be a nonfactor in the 2004 election.

    Here's Chuck's web page filled with articles on GW Bush - all of his articles I've read on GW, I agree with. GW Bush has failed this country in many ways including the issues of abortion and illegal aliens to name just two. To point out those failures and the Bush record is hardly bigoted.

    http://www.chuckbaldwinlive.com/bushrecord.html

    The disparity is there because Chuck Baldwin is a conservative. GW Bush is a "moderate" (which is code name for liberal to me) who ran on the "conservative" party platform.

    PS: I, for one, am glad Chuck Baldwin hasn't rolled over and played dead like so many conservatives have at the Bush Kool-Aid.

    Saddam never attacked us in the first place. There is no credible evidence linking Saddam with 9-11.

    15 of the 19 9-11 terrorists were Saudi nationals. The Saudi royal family and government are close friends of the Bush family.

    Launching a conventional full-scale military invasion in order to allegedly fight terrorism is ludicrous. Terrorists operate in small cell groups that can move from country to country with little effort.

    To think that a conventional war will stop these tiny cells from committing acts of terror is sheer naivete.

    The invasion of Iraq has only spawned more terrorists. And because of Bush's failure to secure our borders, they can enter the U.S. virtually at will.

    You had better hope it does or else we are doomed to fall to the terrorists. John Kerry's idea of "fighting" terrorists through mere law enforcement is the same strategy that Mr. Clinton tried and what happened - the bombing in Saudi Arabia, the bombing of two embassies in Africa, the bombing of the USS Cole, the destruction of the World Trade Center and 3000 innocent people.

    No thanks, I say death to the terrorists unless they surrender. [​IMG]
