'Major Announcement' by Ron Paul Posted by Lew Rockwell at September 5, 2008 11:31 AM

We can't know for sure what it's about, but Bob Barr and Chuck Baldwin both say they'll be at the important Ron Paul press conference at the National Press Club in DC on September 10th at 10:30am, to discuss the election. Anyone else?

From Jesse Benton at Ron Paul's Campaign For Liberty:

The Largest Vote for a Third Party Candidate in History
Posted by Laurence Vance at 12:12 PM
would occur if the Ron Paul major announcement was that Chuck Baldwin and Bob Barr were stepping aside for him to be the nominee of the Constitution and Libertarian Parties. I would even vote if that happened.
Paul undecided between Baldwin and Barr September 4th, 2008 · 33 Comments reports that when asked “whether he was more likely to vote for a third party candidate” than Republican John McCain, Rep. Ron Paul replied, “Oh yes, absolutely.” But Paul said he had not decided between Constitution Party nominee Chuck Baldwin and Libertarian Bob Barr. Paul said, “I strongly encouraged Bob Barr to run. I think he will have more votes than any other Libertarian candidate. I’m also sympathetic with the Constitution Party candidate Chuck Baldwin. I don’t foresee endorsing any single candidate.”
Alright put your thinking caps on and have at it in the comment section.  Have fun.

I just marked my calendar. Hope it will at least be on CNN or FOX. I am a major supporter of Ron Paul, intend to vote Barr, so this is interesting. See my blog at

And now for someone whose dreams are about to be shattered...again.

Too complex. This will tie Barr and Baldwin together via the CFL (and handsome cash contributions to their respective campaigns). Both Barr and Baldwin will represent the CFL at the Conservative Leadership Conference later this month and then, when the time is right, Baldwin will cite pragmatism (limited ballot access) to endorse Barr jointly with the CFL.

Ron won**Q**t endorse challenges to incumbent Republican Congressmen, so why would he openly endorse a non-Republican for President (unless he still considers Bob Barr a Republican,... Bob Barr does).

But Ron won**Q**t be able to avoid saying nice things about Chuck Baldwin.

The highest levels of negotiation between the Republican Party and Ron Paul is ongoing I am certain and the successful rally to Restore the Republic has given Ron Paul some **Q**hand**Q** in the 2008 Election Cycle.

Ron Paul will attempt to use that hand in such a way that he believes his supporters will endorse later when it all comes out in the open (which it always does). It may be as big as a promise not to nuke Iran and save millions of lives in exchange for not bitch slapping McCain too much on national TV. But it had better be a really really **Q**big bribe**Q** for it to be forgiven,... and even endorsed.

Never forget that Ron is still a Washington politician that has a very clear understanding of how the game is played. The r3VOLution has provided him a great hand to play with to play in the **Q**Big Game**Q**.

But the **Q**Bad Guys**Q** could at any time stand up, turn over the card table and start shooting everyone if they see that they are going to loose too much. If you sit down with these people to play, then this is the reality that you have to come to grips with.

No matter who wins this election, the government will certainly be the victor. The real advancement is between the ears of the people. Adding to the legitimacy of the political system is a step in the wrong direction,... IMNSHO

So my speculation: He will express his disappointment in either of the two major party**Q**s picks and issue a joint endorsement of Baldwin and Barr since in many states they may not share a ballot.

Note: I am notoriously wrong in my political predictions.
