Ron Paul urges Americans to vote for third-party candidates

The U.S. Presidential campaign has taken a new turn with the former candidate Ron Paul launching a crusade against both John McCain and Barack Obama. At a news conference, Paul joined three third-party candidates in presenting a united front to shift attention away from the front runners. “By coming together, we represent a majority of the American people. We deserve to be heard. We deserve to be in the debates,” The former Republican presidential hopeful said:

The Texas Congressman has generated a devoted following that many have called a revolutionary movement. Dr. Paul even organised his own Convention in Minnesota, attracting 18,000 people.

While he has officially dropped out of the race for the White House, his message is one for change but definitely not the type offered by Obama or McCain.

“Obama is not for change. He beats McCain into sending more money to Afghanistan. And they both want to send troops and more money into Georgia,” he said.

Ron Paul said he has rejected a plea from the McCain campaign to endorse him, though he did call the republican nominee 'the lesser of two evils.'

Instead he’s rallied behind third-party candidates like Libertarian Ralph Nader, who took the opportunity to criticise media coverage of the election.

“It's demeaning to the media, to the American people and to our status around the world to engage in trivia about political gaffs,” he said.

"Ron Paul calls on voters to support third party candidates".

With Paul were three of the four third party/independent candidates -- Constitution Party Chuck Baldwin, a Baptist minister; Green Party nominee Cynthia McKinney, a former Congresswoman from Georgia; and Independent Ralph Nader -- united in agreement and support of a four-point platform on foreign policy, privacy, the national debt, and the Federal Reserve.
