Chuck Baldwin on Principles & Values

Constitution Party nominee for President; Reform Party nominee in several states

 


Return the country to its constitutional structure

Chuck Baldwin, a minister, radio talk-show host and columnist, is a former Republican. Baldwin joined the Constitution Party and is its presidential nominee. “I became totally fed up with the Republican Party and their total loss of conservative convictions,” he said. “The Bush administration is an abysmal failure. He’s nothing more than a liberal in conservative clothing.” Baldwin says, “We’re a party that wants to return the country to its constitutional structure.”

Nation is fed up than ever with politics as usual

In 2004, when Baldwin was the Constitution Party’s vice presidential candidate, he and his running mate garnered only 1 percent of the vote. But he believes the nation is more fed up than ever with politics as usual and is hungry for another choice.

“I’m not a liberal. I’m not a conservative. I’m a Constitutionalist,” Baldwin said. A Constitutionalist follows the rules set forth in the U.S. Constitution, no matter what, Baldwin said.

Chaired Moral Majority but later distanced himself

As pastor of the Crossroad Baptist Church in Pensacola, Florida, Baldwin once served in the 1980s as Florida chairman of the Moral Majority founded by the late Jerry Falwell. Before Falwell passed away in 2007, Baldwin distanced himself from his former mentor because of Falwell’s continuing support for President George W. Bush and other GOP headliners who had “strayed from positions vitally important to conservatives.”

Constitution Party Vice Presidential nominee in 2004

As the party’s vice presidential candidate in 2004, Baldwin campaigned with presidential candidate Michael Peroutka. Considered even then as a possible candidate for the party’s nomination, Baldwin denies that he had ever sought the top post, but he added, “I am always open to God’s will.” After having been named the party’s nominee, he asked the convention to nominate Tennessee attorney Darrell Castle as his running mate, and his request was honored.
