I read Team R as Team Romney.

I read Team R as Team Romney. Keyes has been put on the back burner by party elites. But I'm not sure I'd call his efforts Pro-Obama. I apologize if that was not what you meant.

...and Joseph Farah did that in 2008...

...with his book "None of the Above" ... but we know he is pro-Israel above all!

So, what's the "excitement" about? ... these theocratic lobbyists are just salesmen of their own selves/causes!

A guy as smart as Alan Keyes ought to know Mary is NOT a deity; so when I see him protesting Obama in a pro-life rally when coming to Notre Dame with media following him, by carrying a banner protraying her(actually Semiramis and Tammuz - the mother/child cult religion of Babel and Nimrod - read Jeremiah 44:17), I can't help it realize he is ... well ... still part of the problem!

...and don't tell that to the "Christians" in the Constitution Party - we cannot have a discussion about the TRUTH of biblical Christianity!

We'll just take our reason from whoever articulates it best - we don't care they are deceived/compromised in so many other areas!

Go atheist Jesse Ventura Go! - right? Maybe Alan Keyes can be his running mate!

2 Timothy 3:7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Hey

Freedom of religion remember? It's a right Americans have. No one has to believe the same as you. AND it's not 'freedom FROM religion' It's OF religion. Get it? Get off your high horse.

Keepin' it real.

no - you're right, they DON'T ...

...have to believe as I do ... BUT ... the intellectual decision to call Christ one's Savior, ought to come with the responsibility to KNOW what Christ said ...

The fingerprints/practices of the ancient Babylon mystery religion PERMEATES Catholocism, Eastern/Greek Orthodoxy, and Protestanism - it is IDOL worship, and it can all be traced back to Nimrod in Genesis Chapter 10.

Somebody ought to tell all these professing pro-Liberty Christians to READ a sermon or two or six from our revolutionary/founding era ... some of them ought to entertain REAL history, and how counterfeit Christianity invites the JUDGEMENT of Christ's Father upon a people that profess His name!!!

Our nation arrived here out of IGNORANCE and lacking a SPINE to stand up for TRUTH and against ERROR - and - being that Judeo-Christian ethics/morals/philosophy dominates our persona/image around the world - you would think with all this "freedom" we actually DO HAVE, people would take advantage of it and learn for themselves and tell others WITHOUT FEAR...kinda like Ron Paul did

Romans 16:17-18 (17) Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. (18) For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.

Emphasis on "...CONTRARY to the doctrine which ye have learned..." - fact is, they call themselves Christians BEFORE the learn any doctrine at all!!!

With all due respect, what

With all due respect, what cause are you selling if not your own?

I guess that would be the PURE faith...

...our founders had in the Creator...that resulted in their receipt of WISDOM for their humility ...

From John Locke to Noah Webster to John Jay to Benjamin Rush and countless others that actually studied the scriptures, and their PREACHERS who joined them in the revolution to throw off tyranny disguised/insulated by FAKE Christianity.

Ron Paul has that faith too - he would never run on that platform, but he didn't get as wise as he is without his Baptist-leaning biblical instruction - IMO

See, this movement is RIGHT in it's economic and liberty arguments on so many levels - but - the fact that we want to heap to ourselves celebrity loudmouths, media personalities who, have NOT the discernment/knowledge/understanding/committment/willingness to sacrifice of our founders - ATHEISTS even(and are now irrelevant), as well as Christian cult-supporters is SAD.

I am willing to mention these things as a lay man; too bad it's divisive; but, after stripping off all the dross or veneer - TRUST is the issue ... and I cannot trust any of these men when I detect self-servedness in their peppered/promoted/well-timed appearances - and - the sudden rise and applause they get, as people IGNORE not their shortcomings, but their lack of understanding and research in their purported "principles" and their origin.

I am supposed to promote the Gospel - before idolatry - and the nation we want restored is an idol IF it is not founded upon the bedrock of truth and the Creator's blessing, as it was when we threw off the parent government the first time.

I will not unite in ERROR for the sake of some temporary fleeting "freedom"; I want our God-given liberties PROTECTED, and if all these professing Christian moralists and atheists DON'T KNOW who the God of our founders is, well, that's a BIG negative for me.

The fervor for getting Ron Paul the nomination is passed - and I have decided it is my calling to challenge MORE thoughts than just the same old stuff we WANT to hear, that marginalizes us.

Sorry - there are other things to study, deeper still; despite the fever pitch that we're getting scammed by a two party system of lesser of two evils. Nothing is more evil than a man be deceived by other professing moralist Judeo-Christian preachers, evangelists, university professors, conseravtives and constitutionalists, and losing his own soul to an eternity in hell because he TRUSTED what other people said about the Creator and His demands upon His creation in exchange for the opportunity to enjoy his/her guaranteed liberties - instead of going directly to the Creator for an answer.

Proverbs 28:2 For the transgression of a land many are the princes thereof - we just don't believe we have TOO BIG of a government because WE HAVE SINNED against the Creator, do we? The laws of Nature and Nature's God??? anyone?????

Why did Alan Keyes LOSE the Constitution Party's nomination to Chuck Baldwin in 2008 - anyone know?

never thought I'd hear mention...

... of Semiramis and Tammuz - the mother/child cult religion of Babel and Nimrod here on the dailypaul! I tip my hat to you as being informed!

Not many people (that I know of) know those things or speak of it in everyday subject matter!

Good job!

I have exposed myself to some GREAT sermons/teaching...

There's more where this comes from - I am slowly posting them ... the time has come for some Jeremiah-style preaching to the professing Christian church in America - let them harden their faces and stiffen their necks towards the Word of God - it's not going to get any better as we keep doing this(allowing Satan's counterfeit church, and all it's tentacles and denominational hierarchies hold people in BONDAGE to falsehoods and convenient Christianity)...

Thanks for the compliment! Somebody has to EXPOSE the errors(our founders KNEW this stuff - they just left it to the marketplace to decide if these false churches would DIE/be rejected for their lies - which I agree with!)

Love him or hate him, he's

Love him or hate him, he's spot on here. He may not, in some cases, come to the same conclusions as Ron Paul, but his analysis of the situation as it pertains to this election cycle is quite accurate in my opinion.

Contrary to what the idiots below have said

Alan Keyes is not an establishment hack. He has been a voice of reason for long before you little twerps knew what a constitution was. He has been snubbed at debates and by the establishment for years for speaking the truth. Anyone who calls Alan Keyes an establishment stooge or hack is and idiot in the Nth degree. Warlocks? What a bunch of morons.

Yeah

You tell them. They don't know their arses from a hole in the ground with the way they dish out imaginary stories claiming them to be the truth. They think no one knows the real truth. Keyes is top notch. Same caliber as RP.....Bite me!

Keepin' it real.

So why did he allow himself

So why did he allow himself to be shipped off to calumet city to run against Obama after the details of Ryan's divorce from 34DD of Borg became public, thus resulting in Ryan's removal from the race for senate?

As time goes on the entire affair seems to be just another set up to build this character known as Barack Obama into a US president. Now perhaps Alan Keyes was duped, but someone who has been speaking truth and put on the outside for it should know a set up like that. So why go along with it?

Chuck Balwin introduced Keyes

Chuck Balwin introduced Keyes with the following...

I invite readers to watch the following summary of Barack Obama and Mitt Romney by Dr. Alan Keyes. Having received a Ph.D. from Harvard University and having served as Ambassador to the United Nations under President Ronald Reagan, Keyes is no slouch. Without a doubt, Alan Keyes has one of the sharpest minds and most articulate tongues in the entire country. Listen to his response to the question, “Will you support Mitt Romney?”

I like the ominous background

I like the ominous background piano. XD

Keyes is a wicked man who deals in inequity.

He has been bad-mouthing and poo-pooing Ron Paul's campaign since the very beginning of 2007.

He serves the oppressive kings of this world as a false christian.

In reality he is doing the bidding of a warlock. He serves demons not the God of the bible.

Alan Keyes is a deceiver, pretending to be a conservative christian, yet he has demonstrated time and again as a presidential candidate in 2008 that he is only in it for himself and to serve the wicked who oppose truth.

That's a fat lie

if I ever heard one. source please.

Keepin' it real.

(edit) ignore nvm what I said

it looked like you were replying to the OP, the DP forums are messing with my head

Not sure about this guy

Based on the below, I don't think this Keyes is liberty minded, just a neocon who wants to get the conservative vote. These same people who talk smack about Obama and Romney are the same people who demonized Ron Paul and his message in both election cycles. What is your solution then Mr. Keyes?

Any

evidence?

Brother Winston Smith

The r3VOLution is NOT republiCAN.

Mixed feelings

I don't know enough about Keyes to generate an opinion of him... but based on these two videos he seems alright.

Granted he may not be a Ron Paul supporter - but at least he's pointing out the rigging of the electoral process as well as the fact that Romney and Obama are the same.

You know how the saying goes, the enemy of my enemy is my...

Hear hear!

Wouldn't trust this establishment hack any farther than I can throw him.

We're gonna see a TON of this "getting ahead of the herd" thing, all kinds of Johnny-come-lately bandwagoneering soon. We're no longer a wallflower, we're the sexy gal in town and every swingin Dick is gonna come a-courtin.

REMEMBER WHO YOUR FRIENDS IS AND WHO THEY AIN'T.

Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.

Hmmm...

The Keyes "dick" has been swingin to the same tune for decades. You need to bring CONCRETE evidence to back up your allegations. He was ALSO ONE OF THE FEW chasing Obama's NON-EXISTENT BC from the git-go.

Brother Winston Smith

The r3VOLution is NOT republiCAN.

Exactly.. Just another establishment hack, always has been.

He tries to herd the false / neocon christians around like a fox but comes across more like a coyote to those of us that actually read our bibles.

One of the good guys.

Truthful.

Keyes is more Conservative Than Libertarian

Alan Keyes is an interesting fellow. He can eloquently discuss Liberty at length, but tends to conclude Conservative solutions.

For example, a Libertarian mindset is that we are free people, able to enjoy our Liberty in a manner as we see fit, as long as we don't harm others. It is antithetical for us to seek government permission, justification, or acceptance for how we choose to exercise our Liberty.

A Conservative mindset looks at this kind of freedom and thinks, "Well, we can't have someone do [blank], because [blank] is bad for them (or bad for society's morals) and therefore we should use the power of government to prevent [blank]." Fill in the [blank] with your favorite illegal vice - prostitution, gay marriage, smoking marijuana, gambling, etc...

Take Keye's discussion on the war on drugs found here:
http://thefiringline.com/forums/showthread.php?t=65827

He discusses how the war on drugs is an anti-Liberty position, and on that he and I agree. However, his conclusion is that we need drug laws because people only want to use drugs because people are weak and immoral. On that conclusion, he sounds suspiciously like Rick Santorum and other Conservative minded crusaders of morality. Conservatives are quick to wag their fingers and seek government solutions to what they deem as moral shortcomings.

It's a shame, because Keyes is very eloquent and would be a great spokesman for Liberty, but for his penchant for control on issues he deems moral failures instead of exercises in Liberty and personal freedom.

That's why I'm a Ron Paul and Gary Johnson supporter, and not an Alan Keyes or Rick Santorum supporter.

Proclaim LIBERTY throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof

So what

He's a man of courage and a straight shooter. So he's not a libertarian. So what? Most RP supporters are not. What's your beef?
You like partisanship? That's what is killing this country.

Keepin' it real.

Great points by Alan Keyes

Thanks for posting!

So true...

At 1:00 to 1:10 - so true - Republicans could never push through what Obama has.

I agree with everything he said

Preparation through education is less costly than learning through tragedy

Excellent, big bump for this

He did a pretty good job.

He did a pretty good job. I enjoyed it.
