Restore, or Reform – That is the Question

By Daniel New - Constitution Party of Texas

Let’s face it – those who believe the Constitution is something that ought to be followed today, to the letter of Original Intent, are a small minority in our country.

There are basically two points of view amongst those conservative patriots who believe the only thing that could possible save this country would be to return as quickly as possibly to the Constitution:

  1. Those who believe it’s too late, that the Republic is dead, that it’s all over but the crying; and
  2. Those who believe it might be doable, IF we were to start voting for principled candidates instead of party hacks whose loyalty is to their party and their pocketbooks not necessarily in that order).

Ask any conservative which camp he falls in – most will tell you they think it can be done, but once again, those voters fall in one of two categories:

Honored by the SPLC

Robert W. Peck - Chairman, Constitution Party of Washington

The organization that I chair, the Constitution Party of Washington, along with the party’s many other state affiliates, has been honored by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) with the title of “Extreme Antigovernment Group.” Please allow me to explain why this is an honor.

The Constitution Party is pro-civil government, pro-U. S. Constitution, and pro-rule of law. The Constitution Party understands that the rule of law emanates from the Creator who is the source of all authority; that authority has been delegated by God to man; that “we, the people,” have further delegated a portion of that authority to the institutions of civil government via the instruments of our state and federal constitutions. The only acts of governing that the Constitution Party opposes are those that violate the revealed will of the Creator or that violate the contract between we, the people, and the institutions of civil government.

Therefore, when the SPLC calls the Constitution Party “antigovernment,” it is by default saying that the only form of government that it views as legitimate is that which is unconstitutional, ungodly, or unbounded by the rule of law. Evidently, in the eyes of the SPLC, being “pro-government” means supporting administrations, bureaucracies, rules, and legislation that are outside of what the Creator, or we, the people, through our precious constitution, have authorized.

Some Things Are So Obvious They Are Invisible

By Doug Schurman - Constitution Party supporter, Clarkston, Washington

Mature Americans are familiar with cliché's which have been with us for as long we can remember.

"Can't see the forest for the trees," "Hidden in plain sight," "Follow the money" are three examples. What do these have to do with the Country we used to call our own?

Perhaps one of the best ways to explain where we are versus where we were, is via an old movie.

The 1963 movie, It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World was a huge success, even though it was over three hours long. And it was really one long chase scene minus machine guns, helicopters with rocket pods, or fantastic unreal explosions. Yet, the audience was usually left physically drained from laughing.

What does this have in common with America today? So happy you asked!

The Politics of Lucy Van Pelt

By Riley J. Hood—Milwaukee County Constitution Party, Wisconsin

“A reproof entereth more into a wise man than an hundred stripes into a fool.”-Proverbs 17:10

Growing up I read enough of Charles Schultz’s Peanuts cartoons to be familiar with the antics of Lucy Van Pelt.  Lucy was a one trick pony who always offered to hold the football for Charlie Brown and then pulled it away at the last moment: Every single time.  She never had to try something new because Charlie Brown never decided to stop listening to her.

Guess what Charlie Brown?  She did it again, more accurately the Republican Party FAILED to repeal Obamacare.  I said as much in “Repeal and Replace?”  It doesn’t take psychic powers to notice an active pattern of the Democrat Party introducing Socialist measures, such as the Income Tax, SSI, Welfare, the US Department of Education and Obamacare: then having the GOP fail to remove such evils, after they made campaign promises to do so. Once again, the political football has been snatched away, and the effort to kick Obamacare into the ash heap of bad ideas has failed.

Guess what?  The GOP won’t change as long as you keep listening to them.  They do the same thing over and over again because it works every single time.  We started the Constitution Party so that you could support candidates that won’t treat you like you are Charlie Brown.  It takes a lot of work to transform a “minor party” into a major political party, but America needs some political competition from the Right.

Evergreen State Constitutionist: March 2017

TO: MEMBERS OF CONGRESS
RE: OBAMACARE

All of you who have duly sworn an oath to "support and defend" the U. S. Constitution, and to "bear true faith and allegiance to the same," have but one choice available to them where Obamacare is concerned, and that is to repeal and "NOT" replace.

Article I, Section 8, of the United States Constitution, which specifies the powers delegated to Congress, nowhere mentions healthcare, or health insurance, thus leaving them outside the purview of Congress. Though legal gymnastics, and Constitutional contortions, have been used to justify the federal government's meddling in these areas, to do so shows contempt for the clear intentions of the framers of the Constitution, and thereby, shows contempt for the document itself and for the rule of law which emanates from it.

Course Correction

Robert W. Peck - Chairman, Constitution Party of Washington

I recently discovered a pamphlet in a pile of materials on my desk that was waiting to be sorted. The pamphlet contained the text of a speech given by former Nixon administration official, Constitution Party founder, and champion of the conservative cause, Howard Phillips. The speech, titled, "Under What Authority?," was given as the keynote address at the 1996 National Affairs Briefing, attended by over 50 conservative leaders and 3,000 activists in Memphis, Tennessee. The speech is the kind of thing that I cut my political teeth on, and it's an example of the rhetoric that was fanning the flames of the Christian-Conservative-Right of just 21 years ago.

After reading Howard's words in that pamphlet, and rehearsing the issues that were part of the conservative agenda back then, I find myself questioning whether the movement has been checking to see that it is still on course, or if it even remembers its original destination.

Merry Christmas

The Story Behind The Christmas Story

I expect we're all aware that Christmas isn't really about Black Friday sales and going to the mall to see how much stuff you can cram into the trunk of your car to haul home and put under a dead tree in your living room. I trust we all understand that Christmas is really about commemorating the first coming of Christ to earth when he came to be the Savior; the Redeemer; the Atoning Sacrifice; "the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world."

But Jesus came and did all those things long before we started celebrating "Christmas." So where did Christmas come from? How did it get started and how did it develop into what it is today? And what about this Santa Claus character, what's up with that?

There is a story behind the celebrating of Christmas, and behind Santa Claus too, and it begins with a fourth century saint – Saint Nicholas. I was recently treated to the telling of that story by one of America's premier historians, Bill Federer, who was interviewed by our friend and fellow Constitution Party supporter, Cynthia Davis, on her Home Front podcast.

In addition to reading your favorite Bible passages about the Word being made flesh and dwelling among us, and maybe going to a special church service, and, of course, getting together with family on Christmas Day, and eating w-a-a-a-a-y too much, I encourage you to listen to this special message: "Is Santa Claus Real," and to learn about the origins of the celebration of Christmas. I would hope that reviewing the roots of this holiday might become a habit with us and that it might lead to our emulating Saint Nicholas (Yes, he’s real!) and his acts of Christian charity.

Merry Christmas! May the Blessing of the Lord come upon you and overtake you in the coming year.

The Most Important Election of Your Lifetime

By Robert W. Peck - Chairman, Constitution Party of Washington

ballot-boxWhen conservative talk radio host, Glenn Beck, announced he would not be voting for Trump, and suggested that, if Hillary wins, we can oppose her agenda in Congress, live to fight another day and work to elect a conservative in 2020, the right reacted in shock and horror, angrily contending, "the nation cannot survive Hillary!” “It will be too late to save America in 2020!” “All will be lost!" Then repeating the mantra used in every Presidential election year: This is the most important election of our lifetime!

I became politically active back in the mid 1990s and from that time until now have heard this same battle cry repeated by the right every four years, declaring this to be, "the most important election of our lifetime," then assuring me that if the Democrat wins this time, the country is doomed and America will be lost. Perhaps this time conservatives will turn out to be right, but, excuse me, while I ignore the inane droning of a slogan that is beginning to make the boy who cried wolf sound credible.

The Candidate They Don’t Want You to Know About

By Robert W. Peck - Chairman, Constitution Party of Washington

the-candidate-250pAs the pundits pontificate, the politicians bluster and blather, and the American public eagerly awaits the opening of Presidential debate season, there are only two things missing from American Presidential politics: 1) A news media willing to ask the real questions that address America's moral condition, the candidate's guiding principles, and the rule of law under the U.S. Constitution; and, 2) Candidates who comprehend America's moral condition, possess guiding principles, and understand the rule of law under the U.S. Constitution.

There actually is a Presidential candidate in the race who does comprehend America's moral condition, has guiding principles, and understands the rule of law under the U.S. Constitution. However, it appears the dominant media does not want the American public to find out about him. While Trump gets by far the most media coverage, Hillary less, and third party candidates receive minimal attention, only Darrell Castle of the Constitution Party has received "zero coverage" by ABC, CBS and NBC. Castle also just happens to be the only candidate in the race who is basing his policies on a Christian worldview, the principles of liberty through limited government and adherence to the U.S. Constitution. You don't suppose there could be a connection there?

Set Education Free

By Robert W. Peck - Chairman, Constitution Party of Washington

A friend recently shared a photo with me in an email that caught my attention and prompted me to ponder, once again, the matter of education. In the picture, a child is asking her mother:

2016-8-17 Set Education FreeWhy do I have to go to school?”

To which the mother replies:

So you can be molded into a state approved homogeneous drone that cannot think outside of the prescribed consensus. You will learn to repeat information instead of how to think for yourself so that you don’t become a threat to the status quo. When you graduate you will get a job and pay your taxes in order to perpetuate the corporate system of indentured servitude.”

Now, I’m not promoting the idea of there being some grand conspiracy here, nor am I indicating disdain for education in general. However, as someone who is inclined to question the accepted norms, I do see a lot of truth behind this satire. The mother’s statement speaks to me of the danger, and indeed, the folly, of a society placing education into the hands of government to have the power to mandate, regulate, and own and operate the infrastructure for the dispensing of this precious commodity.

An Independence Day Message From President Garfield

By Robert W. Peck - Chairman, Constitution Party of Washington

Before being elected President, while serving in Congress, James Garfield stated at the 100th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1876:

james-a-garfield-250p"Now more than ever before, the people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness and corruption. If it be intelligent, brave and pure, it is because the people demand these high qualities to represent them in the national legislature ... If the next centennial does not find us a great nation...it will be because those who represent the enterprise, the culture, and the morality of the nation do not aid in controlling the political forces."

I'm sure that quote will garner its fair share of "amens," especially among the political right. However, I expect most of those “amens” will be predicated on the supposition that it's "the other guy" who has tolerated ignorance, recklessness and corruption in Congress by his vote for, and support of, "the other party." You might want to hold up on passing judgment just yet and look at some numbers first.

Evergreen Constitutionist Update: 22 June 2016

Dear Constitutionists;

Over the past 20 years, our federal government has been 68% Republican controlled and the R party currently controls three times as many states as the D party, yet everything continues to go in the wrong direction. I can't find a logical explanation for Christian-conservative people winning at the polls and holding the reins of power, yet having the power that they hold in their hand produce the opposite of what they sought the power for. I can't find a natural explanation for that, but I can find a supernatural one - God has not honored the victories of the conservative right because we did not get those victories by honoring, trusting and obeying Him.
