Talk To Action | Rand Paul Was The Featured Speaker At Theocratic Constitution Party 2009 Rally

In a pinch, all you really need to know about Christian Reconstructionism is in the title of a January 2008 Talk To Action story of mine, More From The Biblical Stoning & Legalized Slavery Movement. Enter Rand Paul.

Amidst the hullaballoo over Republican Rand Paul's upset victory in the Kentucky GOP primary for US Senate, one of the few journalists to raise the issue of Paul's somewhat uncomfortable proximity to Christian Reconstructionism has been Alternet's Adele Stan, who observes that Rand Paul's father Ron Paul is personal friends with one of the bigger names in the Christian Reconstructionist movement, Howard Phillips, founder of the US Taxpayers Party - now re-branded as The Constitution Party. But there's direct evidence tying Rand Paul to the Constitution Party, whose national platform declares,
"The goal of the Constitution Party is to restore American jurisprudence to its Biblical foundations...
The U.S. Constitution established a Republic rooted in Biblical law"
As Adele Stan notes, Phillips gave a keynote address at the Ron Paul For President Convention in Minneapolis a year and a half ago. And, Ron Paul endorsed the 2008 Constitution Party's presidential candidate in the 2008 election, Chuck Baldwin.
As it's said, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. In a May 21, 2009 appearance on the Alex Jones Show, Rand Paul affirmed that his political beliefs were extremely close to those of his father Ron:

Alex Jones - "You're basically what I would call a chip off the old block. Your policies are basically identical to your father, correct?"
Rand Paul - "I'd say we'd be very very similar. We might present the message sometimes differently.. I think in some ways the message has to be broadened and made more appealing to the entire Republican electorate because you have to win a primary." [Rand Paul on Alex Jones, 5/21/09]
So it isn't altogether surprising that Rand Paul could be found, in April 2009, at a rally held by a political party that's been heavily influenced by a movement whose founder, Rousas Rushdoony, advocated executing homosexuals by stoning, wanted to reimpose the institution of slavery, and maintained that the Sun rotated around the Earth.

In April 25, 2009, Rand Paul was the featured guest speaker at The Constitution Party of Minnesota's "event of the year." I've found video of Rand Paul at an afternoon Minneapolis rally, so he was without a doubt in the vicinity.
Just to make sure I talked to Tammy Houle, whose phone number is the Minnesota Constitution Party listed contact number, and she confirmed to me that Rand Paul had indeed spoken at the April 25th evening event
And so, without further ado, here's the April 9, 2009 post advertising Rand Paul's April 25th appearance at the Minnesota Constitution Party "Liberty Banquet 2009" that's posted on Ronpaulforums.com :

The Constitution Party of Minnesota announces with anticipation, the event of the year -- Liberty Banquet 2009
Patriots and statesmen will come together on April 25th to hear featured guest,

Dr. RAND PAUL

Don't miss this opportunity to unite with other like-minded folks for an evening of inspiration and motivation. The evening begins at 5:00 pm with a social hour, dinner at 6:00, followed by introductions and guest speakers. Preceding Dr. Paul, we will hear a few words from the two tenacious gentlemen that recently accepted the co-chairmanship of the CPMN Veteran's Coalition, Leon Moe and John Salsbury.
A couple of things to note:

1.) I've said several times on USMB that one should be weary of Ron and Rand when it comes to the issue of Christianity in politics.

2.) Seems that Rand Paul was exhausted enough to not go on Meet the Press but had time to go on World Government Conspiracy Theorist Alex Jones's show.

So Rand Paul spoke at a Constitution Party event? How horrible.

Oh, and as for Rand being too exhausted to do "Meet the Press" but energetic enough to go on Alex Jones, Meet the Press was at the end of his primary bid whereas Alex Jones was at the beginning.

Oh I see, he was pandering for the Conspiracy Theorist vote.

Do you agree with the Constitution Party's goals there Kevin?

Unlikely. Alex Jones has been a big supporter of Ron Paul, so Rand probably did the show because of Jones' friendship with his father.

Not being an overly religious person I don't agree with the platform of the Constitution Party. In 2008 I supported Bob Barr over Chuck Baldwin, even despite Bob Barr insulting Ron Paul and Ron Paul endorsing Baldwin in response. However, I will be voting for a member of the Constitution Party for the first time this November, for Ohio's Attorney General.

As much as I do not like Bob Barr as the Libertarian candidate, certainly better than Chuck Baldwin. Also, you're going to vote for AG someone who's party platform is to take this country back to following the bible practically.

Constitution Party (United States) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The party opposes same-sex marriage, and believes state and local governments have the right to criminalize "offensive sexual behavior".[27] The party further opposes pornography, believing it to be, at worst, "a destructive element of society resulting in significant and real emotional, physical, spiritual and financial costs to individuals, families and communities," distinguishable from the American citizen's "cherished First Amendment right to free speech." While expressing its belief in the individual responsibility of citizens and corporations, the party maintains that government plays a "vital role" in establishing and maintaining the highest level of decency in America's community standards.[28] The party opposes all government sponsorship, involvement in, or promotion of gambling,[29] and in keeping with the spirit of Article 1 Section 8 and Amendment 10, opposes federal anti-drug laws while maintaining that the federal government may have a role in limiting the import of drugs.[30]
What kind of Libertarian are you? :cuckoo:

I'm the kind of libertarian who chooses who to vote for not based on their party affiliation, but by their stand on the issues. Robert Owens is a good guy, and I voted for him in 2008 when he ran as an independent. I have no problem voting for him again just because he's running on the Constitution Party ticket.

Right, which is why he's also a member on the national council of the John Birch Society.

Dog, this thread is really no surprise to me because I've been telling the neocons lately that Rand is not who they seem to think he is. Just like that one quote you had up there where Rand says the message needs to be "broadened" to win a primary. I've been trying to tell these people this but they don't want to listen.

They have about a couple fucking MONTHS, at MOST, into learning about this guy. Meanwhile the Ron Paul supporters have known Rand for YEARS now.

Regardless, he's what a Republican is SUPPOSED to be, at least according to the party's values and beliefs. There's nary another Repub in congress who fits the bill.

As far as the Constitution Party, state and local gov's should be free to make their own laws as they see fit. It doesn't mean a CP member has to agree with any particular law a government creates though. Only their right to create it.

Sure, but I think you'll agree with me that plenty of the Constitution's Party platform when it comes to social policy is stuff we shouldn't touch with a ten foot pole.

I don't agree with homosexuality. I don't get it. I don't understand it. It's not natural, and it runs completely counter to what human beings are supposed to do, which is procreate.

This all being said, I don't agree with any government involvement in the issue whatsoever. I don't even agree with government involvement in an issue like marriage PERIOD. There should be no special laws or favors for those who are married. Marriage is between the two people, and God.

Fuck you and your god. :eusa_angel:

So if two adults get married and they do not produce children they are failures -- they did not do what human beings are supposed to do. The woman or the man is flawed.

Your fucking god must be punishing them, because what else could it be? Not being able to do what human beings are supposed to do, which is procreate must be devastating to somebody with your narrowly pathetic view of life.


people like you really do suck. :cool:
