Writes John Derbyshire at Takimag.com:
"I cleave to the quaint principle that one should speak up for, and vote for, whichever candidate best approximates one’s own ideals and principles. Ron Paul was my choice in the primaries, and I had the pleasure of voting for him in February. He was not the choice of Republicans nationwide, however. Of remaining candidates, Chuck Baldwin of the Constitution Party is the only one whose platform is within a mile of my own views, so I shall be voting for him. Mr. Baldwin has also had Ron Paul’s endorsement, so that is an added inducement. The CP’s thunderous claims of a Biblical origin for the Constitution seem to me wrong-headed, but one can’t have everything, and I trust to the Constitution to keep me safe from over-aggressive Bible salesmen."
