The Ron Paul Freedom March by Chuck Baldwin

I was privileged to be invited to speak at Congressman Ron Paul’s Freedom
March this past Saturday on the Mall in front of the U.S. Capitol in
Washington, D.C. In fact, I spoke immediately preceding Dr. Paul and helped
introduce the ten-term congressman.

I gauged the crowd to number in excess of five thousand people. All the
participants I observed were very respectful, well mannered, and polite. The
crowd was about as diverse an audience as I have ever spoken to. They came
from all walks of life and from all points across the country. I was able to
spend an hour or more mingling with the crowd and was delighted to meet many
scores of people who already knew of me. A large number indicated that they
were readers of this column.

Participants in the Freedom March all seemed to have this in common: a love
and desire for liberty, and a deep respect and admiration for Congressman
Ron Paul. I count it an honor to have been asked to speak to such a
wonderful group. Dr. Paul said some extremely kind words about me in his
remarks, as did the man who introduced me, Ernest Hancock, the great patriot
from Phoenix, Arizona.

I was also honored to meet several great Americans whom I have come to love
and respect over the years: people such as retired police officer, Jack
McLamb. It was also good to share the podium with my good friend, Howard
Phillips, who was extremely complimentary of me during his address, as was
Officer McLamb.

Marchers had spent six hours in the blazing, 90-degree sun before my turn to
speak arrived. And both Congressman Paul and myself had to catch flights out
of DC soon after our speeches, so I cut my remarks short so as to give Dr.
Paul maximum opportunity to deliver his remarks. Therefore, my speech lasted
only about 5 minutes.

Below is a link to my speech at Ron Paul’s Freedom March (albeit the opening
remarks of the address were inadvertently omitted. Perhaps another video
will surface soon. When it does, we will post it to my web site at ).

This one thing I surely believe: our liberties and freedoms, yea, the
Constitution itself, are hanging by the thinnest of threads. Both major
parties have sliced and diced constitutional government to the point that
there isn’t much left. And the two presumptive candidates for President from
the two major parties will only continue to eviscerate what few freedoms and
liberties are left.

Both Barack Obama and John McCain will do nothing to secure our borders and
ports. Neither will do anything to quench the thirst of our federal
government for intrusions abroad and meddling within. Neither will do
anything to stop the machinations and lust of the power-elite for globalism
and corporatism. They will do nothing to stop the NAFTA superhighway or the
burgeoning North American Union. They will do nothing to rid our country of
its dependence on foreign oil, and neither will they do anything to stop the
infatuation with spending billions and billions of taxpayer dollars on
foreign aid.
Elect either John McCain or Barack Obama and it will be business as usual in
Washington, D.C.

Those folks who traveled from all over America to participate in Ron Paul’s
Freedom March last Saturday understand this.  They understand that unless we
awaken quickly to what the two major parties are doing to our country, we
will not have a free country much longer. This is why so many people were
willing to travel long distances and march in searing heat. They want their
country back. And so do I.

So, I say, God bless Congressman Ron Paul. God bless those Freedom Marchers.
And God bless all of those folks throughout America who are working
tirelessly to restore our once-great republic. As I said in my speech last
Saturday, “Your fight is my fight!”
