Constitution Party - A Summary

For the last couple weeks I've been posting parts of the Constitution Party platform to help folks see what differentiates this party from the "big two."  I'm hoping that maybe one or two people will at least take enough of an interest to read the whole thing, and to see why the time is now here for us to have a real change; one represented by folks like those serving the Constitution Party. 

I've posted the Preamble, the statement on Sanctity of Life (the very first plank!), the statement on Family, and the statement on Limited Government.  There are obviously other issues, but I don't want to drag this out (especially since I'm realistic enough to know that no one is really reading this!). 

I really do hope some folks will go the CP site and read the whole platform.  But if you want a general overview of who the CP is and what they stand for, here are two short statement:  The Constitution Party Mission Statement, and the Seven Principles of the Constitution Party

Mission Statement

The mission of the Constitution Party is to secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity through the election, at all levels of government, of Constitution Party candidates who will uphold the principles of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution of the United States, and the Bill of Rights. It is our goal to limit the federal government to its delegated, enumerated, Constitutional functions.

Seven Principles Of The Constitution Party:

    Life: For all human beings, from conception to natural death;
    Liberty: Freedom of conscience and actions for the self-goverened individual;
    Family: One husband and one wife with their children as divinely instituted;
    Property: Each individual's right to own and steward personal property without government burden;
    Constitution And Bill Of Rights: interpreted according to the actual intent of the founding fathers;
    State's Rights: Everything not specifically delegated by the Constitution to the federal government, nor prohibited by the Constitution to the states, is reserved to the states or to the people.
    American Sovereignty: American government committed to the protection of the borders, trade, and common defense of Americans, and not entangled in foreign alliances.

Let me once again reiterate what I’ve said here often.  The whole “two party only” thing is a joke.  A third party can make a difference if folks would stop buying the lie of “electability” and would instead stand behind a candidate and a party that truly reflects our values.
