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.

Acceptance Speech of our 2016 Presidential Nominee

Long time Constitution Party leader, past National Committee Vice Chairman and 2008 Vice Presidential nominee, Darrell Castle, accepted the Constitution Party’s Presidential nomination with a uniquely Christian-Constitutional-American speech that set him apart from the rest of the political crowd. Mr. Castle is not a politician, he is a statesman.

Special Elections – Where’s the Emergency?

Constitution Party of Washington Chairman, Robert Peck, recently submitted the following article to the Spokesman Review for possible publication as an op-ed piece. While it addresses a City of Spokane special election, the issue of the waste of taxpayer dollars applies to all Washington residents as special elections are held all around our state every year.

Waste Money 250pIt’s that time again – time for another “special election.” This time, the City of Spokane is looking to renew a levy (i. e., Tax) for emergency medical services (EMS) at an April 26 special election. But why is the city spending taxpayer money to hold a special election for this single measure instead of just adding it to the November general election ballot? Well, it’s for the same reason that every special election is held – it’s because levies, bonds and other tax measures have a better chance to pass at special elections than at general elections.

Voter turnout is far lower at special elections than at general elections. Therefore, if the particular government agency or program that is seeking the funds does a good job of encouraging voter turnout among their employees, employee’s spouses, fellow union members, associated contractors, businesses or special interest groups that will benefit, they will make up a larger percentage of the total votes cast at a special election than at a general election. This is why agencies learned long ago to have their funding measures placed on special election ballots.

Islamic Terror – A Little History

By Darrell Castle Former Constitution Party National Committee Vice Chairman and 2008 Vice Presidential nominee

islamic-invasion-of-america-e1443025562634Today we are going to discuss terrorism and the foolish politicians and policies that have allowed it to flourish, especially in the last fifteen years. This is a tale of war, of assimilation, and of extinction.

President George W. Bush announced that we were engaged in a global war on terror shortly after the attacks of September 11, 2001. He also said, “You’re either with us, or you’re with the terrorists.” I suppose he did that to make sure the entire world was engaged in the conflict. It seems pretty obvious now that terror, especially in Europe, is worse than ever after fifteen years of the global war on terror.

Let’s review some of the things that have happened in this war since then. The United States and its western allies invaded Afghanistan, then Iraq. To some extent, they’re still engaged in both countries. The 9/11 Commission Report states that the cost, in terms of dollars of the 9/11 attacks to the attackers, was estimated to be four hundred to five hundred thousand dollars, and to the United States alone, if you count, in your estimate, the cost of caring for wounded veterans, wounded in the global war on terror, 3.3 trillion dollars. That’s quite a return on investment, isn’t it? I’d take that any day of the week. The United States cannot maintain that ratio forever, obviously, without being economically bled to death.

The Three Unequal Branches of Government

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

The Three Unequal Branches 250pI expect we’ve all heard the phrase, “three coequal branches” used to describe the composition of our federal system of government. In fact, we’ve probably heard it so many times that we don’t even pay attention, we just accept it as fact and move on. But, is it true? Are the three branches of our federal government really “coequal?

When that phrase popped up in an article that I was reading a few nights ago, something rose up inside of me and said “no, the three branches are not coequal.” When I found the phrase being used in another article the next day, I started to ponder just how unequal the branches of our federal government really are.

The three branches of our federal system of government are legislative (Congress), executive (President) and judicial (Supreme Court). This is the order in which they appear in the U.S. Constitution, and it is also their ranking in the power structure. Continue reading →
