Don't know, but it's probably bigger than Liberty hall where the first Continental Congress formed up.

Sure wish I could go.

The Constitution Party is on the right track.

After I realized Bush would not protect this Country from illegals moving up through the Southern Borders, I left the Republican Party..went looking for a new political home..and found it within the Constitution Party.

Don't insult them....you should respect them for their efforts instead. The existence of the Constitution Party proves how far from its past limited-government principles that the GOP has torn itself away from. The GOP is becoming more & more like the Dims as time goes on, & the differences betw the 2 major Parties are slowly withering away.

If that's your party's main selling point, then you are going to have a lot of work to do in 2008. Because a lot of us are starting to figure out that there's not much difference between the two halves of the redemopublicrat superparty.

I also recently left the Republican Party for the Constitution Party. I still vote Republican in almost all cases, but wanted to add to the numbers of the CP. If enough people leave in protest, perhaps the Republicans will see the light?

So allow the GOP to continue its leftward big-government trek, simply for the sake of preventing the Dims from taking power? What's the point in that? Why not JOIN IN THEIR EFFORTS & stand for PRINCIPLE, rather than making it look like those who support the Constitution Party are accomplices in helping the Dims like you do?

Methinks it would be WONDERFUL if the GOP was driven to 3rd Party status while the Constitution Party held the majority in both Houses of Congress--the Dims would go bezerk (& so would the neocons)!!!

And Bush has grown government even faster than billyboy. And his "patriot" act has eroded the Bill of Rights faster, as well.

The Republicans might do well to embrace the Constitution and small, less intrusive government. You know, like it says in their platform.

If the USA is not going to be protected, if the Constitution is not going to be protected,..what do I care WHO is not protecting them?

When I voted for Bush, I did not realize that he would undermine USA Sovereignty with the "Union of the Americas,that he would offer more amnesty to illegals, that he will not appoint someone who will enforce Immigration Laws, that he would sign something like Campaign Finance that is obviously unconstitutional.

So, if Hillary (or another dem) gets in, I'm not going to sweat it out. She's a Socialists and it shows..But Bush is selling us out to Mexico.

There is no longer a difference, IMO, between the Anti-American Democrat Party and the Anti-American Republican Party. I have written my reps and told them the only way I'd ever vote for another repub, or give another dime to a repub, is if Dubya insures illegal immigration remains illegal, that illegals are found and deported, that there will be No Union of the Americas.

So, If Repubs want my vote..they need to Protect THESE SHORES and protect USA SOVEREINTY. Thats all.

That's not true. As an independent I take it race by race. I voted for Nader (write-in) as a protest vote against the Dem's for keeping him off the California ballot. If they race was close here, there's no way I would have done that. If a small party like the Constitution Party can shake things up in a few House races, they could really gain some bargaining power.

Look at what "John and Ken" did with "Political Human Sacrifice."

False - this makes the assumption that all potential votes "belong" to either the dnc or the gop.

Believe what you will, but this argument holds no water.

Another Reagan? I had a FReeper last week trying to convince me that Bush43 is far more conservative than Reagan, and the most conservative President in the last 100 years!

I think the interesting question is what would happen to the GOP if it became a conservative party. It looked for a while in 80 84 and 94 that it might....but subsequently it appears that Reagan and the C of Am was the high mark, not the beginning of a draft rightwards in this country.

In what I have observed, with the exception of 1964, when Republicans articulate a consistent conservative message, they do well. When they don't, they lose.

Now the contrary evidence is that the GOP won the White House in 88, 2000 and 2004 with a moderate, and then a moderately conservative candidate. 41 and 43 are obviously to the left of RR, and 43 is obviously to the right of 41. So on those elections, one could say that when the GOP is moderate it wins. The obvious counter to that is 76.

I don't know exactly how the politics will play out nationally. But I tend to favor the thesis that a true, conservative/populist/libertarian/Main Street/socially conservative campaign will always do pretty well, provided the man carrying the message can smile a bit and not always look like he's sucking on a lemon. That is REagan's legacy and it is powerful. We haven't seen anything like it since.

Therefore, though obviously the CP is irrelevant, since it gets fewer votes than a city council candidate in a big city, the fact remains that it has hashed out a truly conservative agenda...one which I think personally that the GOP should adopt as its own. We will lose the today show and a bunch of mods in so doing, but I still think we would win.

That's my $.02.

You can't handle the truth, can you?

Is President Bush & the GOP Elite serious about protecting our borders & stopping illegal immigration? JUST LIKE THE DIMS, of course not.

What about being serious about repealing Roe v. Wade, impeaching judges who legislate from the bench, respecting the 9th & 10th Amendments for once, limiting the powers of the federal government to its written, constitutional functions, returning our $ supply back to a sound footing (the gold standard, which the Constitution REQUIRES), eliminating foreign aid & the federal Welfare State (both of which are blatantly unconstitutional)....NOPE, of course not: JUST LIKE THE DIMS, they are in perfect agreement there too; & so many others it could take hours to list them all.

Bullshite. Neither of the Bush's are even a shadow of Reagan. Cutting taxes is just one of a long list of conservative traits. The increases in domestic spending alone disqualify our current President. Add in foreign aid, anti-Second Amendment stance being pushed by his new AG and the BATFE, failure to protect the border, ect....

The US is in deep doo-doo if we don't get a massive turn around and but quick.

From their website:

The Constitution Party is the only party which is completely pro-life, against special rights for homosexuals, pro-American sovereignty, anti-globalist, anti-free trade, anti-deindustrialization, anti-unchecked immigration, pro-gun, and against the constantly increasing expansion of unlawful police laws, in favor of a strong national defense and opposed to unconstitutional interventionism.

its like all the people voting for nader. they KNOW he won't win, but they also know that everytime they try, more people vote for him and if he hits that certain percentage rate, he gets his federal campaign funding. nader himself knows he'll never win, he just wants to get his party started so eventually they'll have a chance.

Truth? Back up and punt again. I'm no RINO fanboy. Nor am I big on the Constitution party.

I agree with a bunch of their Platform, right up until they start spouting about porn and "any Religion as long as it is Judeo-Christian".

Of the Third Parties, even the idiots in the LP are closer to my personal ideology.

I have a feeling if a new party got built up, to get into and to hold power it would become a carbon copy of the Republicans. For example if the Republicans hadn't done the perscription drug plan for seniors, Kerry surely would have used that as the centerpiece of his campaign, and won the election.

Thanx for your analysis...that $0.02 was worth quite a lot, IMO, & is much more respectful than many other comments I've recieved in the past. Thank you.

When, OH WHEN, will the GOP allow such true conservatives to climb their way up the Party Ladder & be embraced by the public @ large?
