For some time I've been tossing around writing a post about my ongoing support of the Constitution Party, and how to address those who keep bringing out the old, tired, and illogical "throwing away your vote" idea.
Well, thanks to Gene Edward Veith, writer and professor, part of that post has been written for me. So, please read this before you continue.
Now, then, let's get down to business. Since the GOP has continued to ram down our throats non-Conservatives like McCain and now Romney, it's clear that a third party is needed. And it's clear that it needs to be a third party with genuine conservative values. Enter the Constitution Party.
I've written several times already about why I've embraced this party (read here and here). Just go read their party platform and you'll understand. I honestly believe that supporting the CP can make a real difference.
And that's why, here in Missouri, I am fully behind Cynthia Davis for Lt. Governor. You can go to her website and read her history and why she left the GOP for the CP. I'll just say here that I had the opportunity to briefly meet her when she announced her candidacy, that my daughter is a college classmate with her daughter, and everything I've heard leads me to believe that Mrs. Davis truly stands behind the platform of the Constitution Party. I'm supporting her to the best of my ability and encourage others in Missouri to do the same.
On the national front, the CP hasn't chosen it's Presidential candidate yet. That will happen in couple weeks at the National Convention. But so far I have been quite impressed with Robby Wells, and I'm hoping he will emerge as the nominee. Whoever it is, as long as they are faithful to the principles stated in the CP platform, they'll get my vote.
I'm tired of being taken for granted by the GOP, tired of the same old results from the two party system. The time couldn't be any more right for the emergence of a powerful third party, and I honestly believe that godly, conservative folks won't do any better than the Constitution Party. I'm Scott Weldon, and I approve this message.
