Ammon Bundy Touts Ron Paul Endorsement in Idaho Gubernatorial Primary

Ammond Bundy is best known for his part in a 2014 standoff with the Federal government over cattle grazing rights. Bundy’s father, Cliven, successfully stared down the Bureau of Land Management which had attempted to confiscate his cattle for grazing on public land for years without a permit.

Several members of the Bundy family were charged with an assortment of crimes following the standoff, but a federal judge declared Ammond Bundy’s case a mistrial with prejudice, effectively dismissing the charges.

Earlier this year Bundy declared himself a candidate for the Republican nomination for governor of Idaho. He noted that his goal was to defeat “Joe Biden and those in the Deep State that control him” because they “are going to try to take away our gun rights, freedom of religion, parental rights, and more and further violate the constitution in unimaginable ways even more than they’ve already done.”

Former GOP Congressman Ron Paul, a 3-time presidential candidate (twice as a Republican and once as a Libertarian), is backing Bundy’s bid. Paul released this message of support, which it sounds like may also be used as a robo-call to primary voters:

“Hello, everybody, I’m Congressman Ron Paul. I’m calling on behalf of Ammon Bundy who’s running for governor in Idaho. He’s doing very well. He’s a friend of liberty. He’s a strict constitutionalist, and I know he would make a great governor.”

“I am honored to receive the endorsement of Ron Paul for my candidacy to be governor of the state of Idaho,” Bundy tweeted in announcing the message. “Ron Paul is a living legend and an icon for conservative values and constitutional purity.”

Bundy is facing a crowded GOP primary field that currently includes the sitting governor and lieutenant governor, as well as several other challengers.

    Ron Paul continues to disappoint me more and more each day. Is it too late to return all of his books?

    Tony From Long Island, It is not too late!

    if you own books by Ron Paul and you have lost the desire to read them and find their presence to be distressing there are several options you may wish to consider.

    Option One: You may burn them. Please check with all your local fire regulations on the proper method to burn books safely.
    Option Two: You may sell them. In this day and age, many markets are available to aid you in reducing your Ron Paul book count. Secondary benefit, people will send you money as compensation!
    Option Three: You may go door to door offering them for free as a negative teaching campaign, telling the person that answers the door that this was a good book at the time but that you have decided that Ron Paul is .

    He is running in the Stupid Party (GOP) primary?
    Indeed, Ron Paul is a disappointment. But I figured that out in 2007 when I spoke to him for a few minutes at a San Antonio rally for his POTUS run. He betrayed libertarians (note the small “L”) and the US Constitution with his “Audit the Fed” notoriety and silence on restoring the 5,000,000 man Texas State Militia.

    Ron Paul has been awesome on speaking out against U.S. interventionist foreign policy and the military-industrial complex, the drug war, and the Federal Reserve banking cartel, but his guiding ideology is a strict Constitutional (paleo-)conservatism with Misesian characteristics. There’s a lot for libertarians to like and admire about him, but some of his priorities, such as preaching goldbuggery and apocalyptic hyperinflation, will disappoint people who understand that libertarian philosophy doesn’t begin and end with the rationalist wing of the Austrian economic school.
