Constitution Party National Convention to Meet in Nashville (Starting today, Wednesday 18 April)
The Constitution Party ^ | 17 Apr 12 | CP

04/17/2012 Constitution Party National Convention to Meet in Nashville

Amidst Unprecedented Voter Dissatisfaction with Obama and Romney

Constitution Party National Chairman, Jim Clymer, announced the 2012 National Convention of the Constitution Party which will be held April 18-21 in Nashville, Tennessee.

“American voters who support limited, constitutional government, traditional American values, the protection of American jobs and preservation of individual liberty can take heart! They will not be limited to a difficult choice between Obama and Romney as the one likely to be the least threat to their life, liberty, property and other interests. The Constitution Party will be offering the Constitutional option in 2012,” said Clymer.

The venue for the Constitution Party National Convention will be the beautiful Sheraton Music City Hotel in Nashville, TN. The public is invited to attend but registration is required and anyone wishing to do so should contact the Constitution Party national office at 717-390-1993 for further information. Registered guests will be admitted to all sessions and events, including the gala Saturday night banquet to be held after the conclusion of the Convention, but only delegates who are selected by the respective state party affiliate organizations will be allowed to vote.

Among those seeking the Constitution Party Presidential Nomination is former Congressman Virgil Goode. Goode, who represented Virginia’s 5th District from 1997 – 2009, was a member of the Liberty Caucus, chaired by Ron Paul. Known in the House of Representatives for his outspoken opposition to illegal immigration, his support for trade policies that protect the interests of American workers, for limited government and for cuts in spending along with a balanced budget, Goode joined the Constitution Party in May of 2009 and is now a member of its National Executive Committee.

Other candidates seeking the Constitution Party Presidential nomination include Robby Carr Wells of North Carolina, a former NCAA Division 1 football coach at Savannah State University, Laurie Roth, of Washington, a talk show host and columnist and Susan Ducey, a constitutional activist from Kansas.

The general session of the convention, which will include adoption of the 2012 Constitution Party National Platform and the selection of the party’s presidential and vice-presidential nominees, is set for Friday April

20 and Saturday April 21, with the presidential nominee’s acceptance speech scheduled for 1:30PM Saturday, April 21.

“To the millions of American voters--be they traditional Democrats who once believed that their party spoke for America’s working people, honest, representative government and freedom or Republicans who used to believe that their party represented limited government, fiscal responsibility and individual liberty—who feel abandoned by their own political parties, I issue an invitation to find out about a new path for America-the Constitution Party (www.constitutionparty.com) and to join the campaign to Save America by supporting the Constitution Party Presidential ticket in 2012,” concluded Clymer.

Of course, we’re not entertaining the false hope of defeating Obama, but the Constitution Party represents a long-term movement.

Fellow Tea Partiers... your voice will be heard and heeded in the Constitution Party!

We begin building a new party today or we are 4 years behind if we try to begin 4 years later.

LOL, no they're not. They support things like a protectionist trade police with high tariffs, a Ron Paul like foreign policy, etc.

The Constitution Party will likely get the same (or worse than) .15% of the vote it got last time around. Because this year will be a referendum on a fairly unpopular incumbent president, my guess is the Constitution Party will even do worse.

HOW FORTUNATE

George Clymer (March 16, 1739 – January 24, 1813)

was an American politician and founding father.

He was one of the first Patriots to advocate complete independence from Britain.

As a Pennsylvania representative, George Clymer was, along with five others, a signatory of both the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution. He attended the Continental Congress, and served in political office until the end of his life.

The US Constitution, Article I, Section 8:

Section. 8.The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;

Duties, Imposts, and Excises are tariffs and are among the CONSTITUTIONAL way to raise funds as spelled out by the Founders of our Republic.

As an advocate of the US Constitution, it must be the rulebook by which we operate.

It's not our fault the Republicans are too stupid to understand anything except losing an election they could have won.

The only way to get someone to understand something is to put it in terms they can comprehend. They've proven over and over again they aren't going to change as long as people will keep voting for them just because they aren't Democrats.

I wish it was different, but it is what it is.

I’m sure there will be one or two items you might think a bit differently on, but you will find yourself nodding in agreement on the major issues of our time: Life, Guns, Immigration, budget, etc.

Besides LET’S ROCK THE SYSTEM! SEND A MESSAGE!

Point of order. Just a question.

Is the Constitution Party on enough state ballots in the General Election to constitute eligibilty to (be in a legal position to be able to) receive at least 270 Electoral Votes? By that I mean, if not ballot qualified in enough states, one and millions of others can vote for them, and they could win every state in which they appeared (almost impossible), but still mathematically have no way to win the Presidency as they would come up short in the Electoral College. That hurdle #1 needs to be cleared in my mind. And secondly, their Presidential nominee for 2012 needs to be a major personality of high stature and high name identification, with experience at very senior levels of business, military or government, in an administrative capacity over many people, a commanding person with excellent television appeal who can draw large, phenmominally large crowds, not just 10 to 15 people here and there in Holiday Inn banquet rooms off the Interstate here and there.

Just my two points, for what it is worth. Maybe that will help.

If Romney loses in November, the movement will be much faster.

Millions of people will drop the GOP faster than you can say Revolting.

The "Constitution Party" is an anti-Israel John Birch Society/chr*stian dominionist front. When Alan Keyes tried to get their presidential nomination a few years ago they rejected him because he was pro-Israel and anti-terrorism.

They also insist that Thomas Jefferson's "strict constructionism" is the "official" interpretation of that document even though Jefferson was never at the Constitutional Convention and his opponent, Alexander Hamilton, was.

Their probable candidate will be Virgil Goode, a former congressman and senatorial candidate from Virginia.

He is not high profile as you have wanted, but he is knowledgeable of the system, and his campaign knows their way around this media culture.

The issue is do we continue to wait to drill for oil saying it won’t change prices today, or do we start drilling now because it will eventually create more supply.

Oh, great! Another opportunity to splinter the non-Demo electorate and insure another term for ‘the imposter’.

The GOP already did the heavy lifting of splitting the non-dem electorate by nominating a sure loser in Romney. They're sending the message the conservative movement no longer is welcome in that party.

Since Reagan left office, I've settled for Bush I and II, Dole and McCain, in the hopes the party would re-examine itself and move back to a more conservative ideology. Instead, it's been a steady leftward movement, capped by Romney's pending nomination.

Mitt Romney will not win in November. As such, this presents a no-risk opportunity for the conservative movement in this country to realign under a new flag. The estabs have ignored us FAR too long, and it's time to make that long-needed move.

Regardless of who gets the Constitution Party nomination, I know I'm going to be casting my vote for a conservative for President... something I haven't done since... Reagan!

The following is a statement from Chuck Baldwin, the CP's last presidential candidate:

To be sure, not all believers agree on the subject of Israel. Christians are divided between pre-millennialism, post-millennialism, and even amillennialism. For the most part, pre-millennialists (such as me) believe that God will yet fulfill the Davidic Covenant with the nation of Israel. Post-millennialists, on the other hand, believe that the Church, which is the Body of Christ, is the complete fulfillment of God's promises to Abraham and David.

As a pre-millenialist, Baldwin had a positive view of Israel. He simply didn't believe in foreign entanglements.

Read their Defense platform and you’ll see the difference.

As did our founding fathers, they do not believe in foreign entanglements. At the same time, they believe in fielding the world’s best military.

Yep, that is the GOP at its worst, sad to say and impossible to deny.

However of the two (2) viable political parties, the GOP is the only party that SOMETIMES effectively advances real-world, pro-Constitution, pro-liberty, pro-responsibility — in short, pro-American — ideas.

Which also answers the spam-commenter.

Obama Justifies FEMA Imprisonment of Civilians!

Senate Bill S510 Makes it illegal to Grow. Share. Trade or Sell Homegrown Food.

Imagine that. You and your entire family could be dragged away to FEMA Camps against your will. Imprisoned without trial. For merely growing your own vegetables. Or executed under Executive Order by NATO or UN Troops or thugs wearing black uniforms with esoteric military patches on them. All based on illegal and Unconstitutional executive orders from the usurper in charge.

For the most part, pre-millennialists (such as me) believe that God will yet fulfill the Davidic Covenant with the nation of Israel. Post-millennialists, on the other hand, believe that the Church, which is the Body of Christ, is the complete fulfillment of God's promises to Abraham and David.

As a pre-millenialist, Baldwin had a positive view of Israel. He simply didn't believe in foreign entanglements.

First, I am pleasantly surprised. One would not know from Baldwin's passive acceptance of the Constitution Party's anti-Israel foreign policy position that he was pro-Israel.

However, the party still has an anti-Israel foreign policy, and there are other problems as well. From the Baldwin quote above, he seems to assume that every potential CP voter is a chr*stian. Though not a liberal (and probably to the right of Baldwin, since I'm a Theocrat), I am not a chr*stian. I certainly have no objections to voting for a devout chr*stian, but the ideology of the CP seems to be that the United States is corporately a "chr*stian nation." I have no problem acknowledging that the US is historically a chr*stian nation so far as population and culture is concerned, but The CP, like the JBS, seems to believe (however "unofficially") that the United States has taken over from Israel as the "chosen nation": that the US is a special, unique, chosen nation founded by chr*stians (like Thomas Jefferson, the bible mangler?). This is both Anglo-Israelism and henotheism, two ideologies to which I am adamantly opposed.

Please understand that I am not one of those people who thinks that the First Amendment forbids the states from having official religions of their own. But any "gxd" worshiped by people who believe that the United States is now "the chosen people" is a false "gxd" and not the True G-d.

I could vote for such a person if he didn't represent a party that held this as a quasi-official belief, but that isn't so with the CP.

Most importantly, the CP has no chance and will accomplish absolutely nothing other than splitting off conservative votes. I realize that the current Republican party has rejected conservatives and that we have to do something. However, voting for the candidate of an anti-Israel party that has no chance of winning an election in such a crucial year strikes me as not the thing we need to do.

At any rate, thank you for the information.

Just what the liberals hope for. And the Constitution Party is giving it to them.

No, actually the GOP, with its craven unwillingness to challenge the Left head-on, is giving it to them. The conservative departure from the GOP is a result.

I have word-searched their entire platform and the word “Israel” does not appear anyplace.

Hands down, the Constitution Party’s principles are better than what you just posted about Obama.

And they’re better than pro-abortion, anti-gun, pro-gay, pro-big government Romney.

But...getting some FReepers to see that is an uphill struggle.

I’m also a Newt fan, so more power to him until the fat lady sings. Unlike others, I have actually send Newt money.
