It's official. The Catholic Knight is retired.  I'm hanging up the helmet and passing the torch. There will be no more articles, no more commentaries, no more calls to action. THIS BLOG IS CLOSED. I've spent a very long time thinking about this, I believe the time has come, and is a bit overdue.  I want to thank my readers for everything, but most especially for your encouragement and your willingness to go out there and fight the good fight. So, that being the case, I've spend the last several weeks looking for bloggers who are fairly active, and best represent something akin to the way I think and what I believe.  I recommend the following blogs for my readers to bookmark and check on regularly. Pick one as your favourite, or pick them all. They are all great..... In His Majesty's Service, THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT

Ron Paul Supporters Should Consider Bob Barr

THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: To make myself perfectly clear, 'The Catholic Knight' is now out of the business of formally endorsing political candidates. However, I have no problem commenting on them - even being specific about what I like and don't like. Regular readers of this blog know I cannot stand John McCain, but I also think Barack Hussein Obama is worse. Regular readers of this blog know I once endorsed Mike Huckabee, and then after he dropped out, I tried to help Alan Keyes. All of which was a futile exercise.

So that being said, I have no intention of endorsing another candidate. I will however comment on them at my discretion.

Ron Paul has dropped out of the presidential race. His concession can be read on his official website here: This means he will NOT appear on the November ballot, and a "write in" campaign will also be a futile exercise. However, all is not lost for Ron Paul supporters. Another candidate virtually identical to Ron Paul in ideology is appearing just over the horizon. His name is Bob Barr (, and he has just been nominated to run for president in 2008 on the Libertarian Party ticket. Unlike Ron Paul, Barr actually can be on the ballot in all 50 states. Now if the Ron Paul supporters would only support Barr with the same kind of zeal they gave to Paul, this election would easily become a three-man race, effectively making Libertarianism a household name.
