Terry will challenge President Obama in Democratic Primaries

In talking about his platform that affirms life, marriage between a man and a woman only and human freedom, he indicated that he will run an "unashamedly theocentric campaign. The Constitution of the United States of America is a phenomenal document," he stated. "But it is not the primary document that was given to the human race to govern themselves. That would be the Ten Commandments and the Sermon On The Mount." Randall Terry will run as a Democrat.

WASHINGTON, DC (Catholic Online) - Standing outside of the Holocaust Museum in downtown Washington, DC, Randall Terry, pro-life activist and found of Operation Rescue, declared on Thursday his intention to run for the Democratic party nomination for President of the United States.

Framed by a sign at the entrance to the museum that stated "State of Deception - the Power of Nazi Propaganda" Terry was introduced by Rabbi Yehuda Levin, the founder and Rabbi of Congregation Mevakshei Hashem. He is also spokesperson for the Rabbinical Alliance of America and a member of the advisory committee of the organization Jews Against Anti-Christian Defamation.

While representing only himself at the announcement, Rabbi Levin stated, "I'm here as a religious Jew and a proud and grateful American to support the candidacy of pro-life and family values democrat Randall Terry for President of the United States.

"As one of millions of disenfranchised Catholics, Jews, Evangelicals and Muslims, we want to see the party that panders to deviancy and no choice permitted, pro-newborn babies executed - we want to see that party returned to decency and respect for life and family values."

Terry wasted no time in outlining his strategy for this primary campaign.

"We will run ads on the Super Bowl 2012 that show dead babies," he began, "the victims of abortion. We will, with the help of God, bring America face to face with the victims of Obama's policies. This campaign is about human rights, ladies and gentlemen.

"It will be first and foremost about the human rights of babies that are being brutally slaughtered and thrown in dumpsters and landfills. But it is also about the human rights of the slave labor force on Obama's plantation.

"We have a federal plantation - there's always work, there's always have a roof over your head as long as you'll be faithful to stay on the plantation. Well, there's a lot of slave laborers, myself included, that would like real freedom again.

"We will also focus on President Obama's foreign policy. We are literally, because of this government's oil policy with Saudi Arabia - we are funding terrorism all over the world.

"So every time we go to the gas pump in America, some of our money is being used to kill fellow Americans or innocent men and women around the world. This is treachery of the highest order.

"We'll focus on our trade relations with China. I almost thought it was a comedy skit to hear President Obama talk about human rights in China - the President Obama that authorized money to go to International Planned Parenthood who is helping to fund China's forced abortion program. Was this some kind of a cruel joke?"

Terry went on to say that "the temptation to give money to his campaign is going to prove too great to resist for Tea Partiers and Pro-life activists because, in a Democratic primary, I can pummel Obama's policies and show him to be the arch-promoter of child-killing in the western hemisphere."

While he openly acknowledges that defeating the incumbent in the primaries is a "long shot, he expressed confidence that his candidacy will help to define the political debate for years to come by just one ad on the Super Bowl.

Terry told the crowd of supporters and media that he did have one goal - defeating President Obama in the Iowa primary, where anyone can become a "democrat for a day" and participate in the partisan caucuses simply by showing up.

In talking about his platform that affirms life, marriage between a man and a woman only and human freedom, he indicated that he will run an "unashamedly theocentric campaign."

"The Constitution of the United States of America is a phenomenal document," he stated. "But it is not the primary document that was given to the human race to govern themselves. That would be the Ten Commandments and the Sermon On The Mount."

When asked about running as a Democrat, Terry responded that the President is the primary focal point for voter rage across the country. While there may be differences with leading Republicans for the nomination, he said his quarrel is not there.

He stated that he wanted to use the primary to focus specifically on the incumbent and help return grass roots values to a party that traditionally was known as being for the little guy - which should include babies.

 In the coming days, Terry volunteers will be sending millions of emails across the country to begin raising funds. They will also be distributing 55,000 fund raising envelopes at pro-life events taking place in Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia on the 38th anniversary of Roe versus Wade.

Beginning in February, the campaign will take to the road as Terry travels to New York with Rabbi Levin and begins his visits to Iowa and the Midwest. New Hampshire, Florida and North Carolina are also places he intends to visit.

In asking him about being seen as a one-issue candidate, he made it clear that while the issues of life from conception to natural death are critically important, the campaign will address a full spectrum of issues. "I'm very serious about this campaign," he stated, "and recognize that we have a lot in front of us in the coming months."
