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-
(B) any claim based upon the right of privacy, including any such claim related to any issue of sexual practices, orientation, or reproduction."
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.
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 video.
