NEW SPEECH ONLINE AND AN APOLOGY TO REP. RON PAUL
Jan. 12, 2006
My fine staff has just uploaded the video of a speech I delivered to
a home school graduation ceremony to our web site. To watch the
speech, go to: http://www.chuckbaldwinlive.com.
While you are at the web site, be sure to listen to my radio
interview with former Republican Congressman Bob Barr
regarding the dangers of the USA Patriot Act. A video speech I
delivered at a Second Amendment rally is also online as well as a
video slideshow of my family and work.
One more thing: be sure to visit the News & Opinions page often.
We have posted copious news items and commentaries that every
American citizen would be well advised to read. Please check it
out, and be sure to tell your friends.
It is also necessary for me to apologize to Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX).
In my last column (Tuesday, Jan. 10, 2006, "As Usual,
Conservative Christians Don't Get It"), I said, "It doesn't matter
that not a single 'pro-life' Republican congressman has introduced
legislation under Article III, Section 2, of the U.S. Constitution to
remove Roe from the jurisdiction of the Court, which is the
prerogative of Congress to do." I was mistaken.
Congressman Ron Paul introduced H.R. 4379 "We the People Act"
to the Committee on the Judiciary in the House of Representatives
on November 17, 2005, "To limit the jurisdiction of the Federal
courts, and for other purposes." Under Sec. 3. Limitation On
Jurisdiction, the bill states:
"The Supreme Court of the United States and each Federal court-
(1) shall not adjudicate-
I should have known that Ron Paul would have the courage and
commitment to introduce such a bill. I suppose part of the problem
is that I don't consider Mr. Paul a mere "Republican." He is an
independent thinker, a true statesman. I have lauded Congressman
Paul before in this column. If we had 218 congressmen such as
Ron Paul in the House of Representatives, we could change the
course of the country in short order.
(B) any claim based upon the right of privacy, including
any such claim related to any issue of sexual practices,
orientation, or reproduction."
In the meantime, guess what? There are no cosponsors to H.R.
4379. So, out of 435 members of the House of Representatives,
there is exactly 1 congressman who is willing to do more than just
talk pro-life! Now, can you see the problem?
At any rate, I stand corrected, and, again, please check out the new
