LESSER OF TWO EVILS PART 1&2 By Jon Christian Ryter (Two-Party System) | AMERICAN BLOGGER: GUNNY.G ~ WEBLOG.EMAIL

Congressman Ron Paul [R-TX.], who isn’t running for anything (except President in the State of Montana) wants to change the outcome of the upcoming national election. Dr. Paul, accompanied by three longshot presidential candidates at the National Press Club on Wednesday, Sept. 10, opened his speech saying “The coverage of the presidential election is designed to be a grand distraction…
The truth is that our two-party system offers no real choice…” Offered by Dr. Paul at the Press Club as the preferred candidates you should first consider voting for were three longshot candidates that the Congressman attempted to package as a “third party choice.”
First was conservative Crossroads Baptist Church pastor Chuck Baldwin. When conservatives speak about Sen. Barack Obama‘s qualifications to pick up the red phone at 3 a.m., his under-two-years of political experience dwarfs Baldwin’s complete and utter lack of anything that could even remotely be construed as political experience.
The same can be said about longshot liberal citizen’s advocate and environmentalist Ralph Nader who, granted, has been a fixture around DC for more years than most of us have lived. But, like Baldwin, he has no political experience that qualifies him to sit in the Oval Office.
And while the office of President is on-the-job training for every new chief executive, the core knowledge of running a nation must already exist in that new President at 12:01:01 p.m. on January 20, 2009 because at that time, its too late for a new president to crack open a textbook called “Politics 101: A Primer On Being President.”

And, finally, Dr. Paul’s third offering was the group’s only radical communist: and Michelle Obama-Light, former 6-term Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney [D-GA] who lost her job after arrogantly assaulting a Capitol police officer for challenging her for not wearing her congressional I D and bypassing the metal detectors in the House of Representatives. Dr. Paul attempted to pull former 4-term Congressman Bob Barr [R-GA] (whose seat was merged with another one and one seat gerrymandered out of existence by the Democratically-controlled State House in 2001). Barr is seeking the presidency on the Libertarian ticket.
Barr, however, declined Dr. Paul’s invitation to be part of the “Ron Paul Majority.” And, while both Barr and McKinney are more qualified than Obama to lead the nation, McKinney, like Obama, speaks of equality only in the glowing terms of social justice—the redistribution of wealth from the “rich white class” to the underprivileged poor in the nation’s innercities.

The need for the “American Majority” National Press Club press conference was triggered by the Palin Phenomenon.
The longshot candidates watched scores of anti-McCain independents pick up the McCain-Palin placards as political history was twice-written in one week. First, they watched GOP nominee Sen. John McCain [R-AZ] pick, as his running mate, Gov. Sarah Palin [R-AK]. Palin instantly reignited the Republican Party, the likes of which has not been witnessed since 1980……..
