How many republicans were there before their were any republicans? We need to make a dramatic stand. Let’s dump the cocktail, whine and cheese, Rockerfeller republicans and restore our Constitution. It is something all true Americans can become excited with, but we need big names and a strong base to get it going. Please don’t put it down. We can do it in the spirit of our founders who took a chance in declaring independence.

Does the Democrat Party ‘have to be abortion supporters’?

To be frank, I ok with abortion. Why? It’s the only form of social engineering that actually works!

The democrat party is a loosely aligned coaltion of victims that could be easily splintered if anyone in the RNC had balls. Abortion is a big part of it. Take it off the table as a political issue and let the splintering begin.

I understand many here will vehemently disagree.

Yes, the core of Conservative philosophy is the freedom of the individual. When one has the live or death decision over another, then you have no other freedom. The Republican party was founded on an anti-slavery principle, I don’t see much difference, one person owning the life of another.

Does Rick Sanchez have to be a self-absorbed douchebag?

Well, tell me, how many elected members of Congress does the CP have?

How many Congressional seats did the Republican Party hold in 1852?

The Constitution Party has a lot of housecleaning of truthers, isolationists, and other paranoid bircher types before most would ever even consider them.

Many (in my imagination) are fiscal conservatives. They’ve been out of any meaningful positions of power for quite some time now. I need a drink before the tax goes up.

This time around it seems the Fiscal Conservatives were the biggest group to stay home (mostly over the bailout.)

Some serious donors and a couple of high profile defections and we’d be in business. Conservatives are desperate for a new home.

Yee Haw! Count 2 Freepers on the "Constitution" Band Wagon!

Now, lets get more. I had no idea until talking to my wife and the local Boy Scout leaders this weekend that there was even a Constitution Party. Now, I am fully on board and ready to hit the beaches!


God, thank you for Marty and his service. I am sorry he saw the rise of Communism in the land he fought for. His Normandy story brings tears to my eyes. Please help us to restore the land he and his fellow Americans died for.

Let the GOP be whatever they want. Let’s join the Constitution Party where Individual right occur at conception.

Or how about a party where individual rights begin when you have an individual and not just an aggregate of cells.

The Constitution Party has a lot of housecleaning of truthers, isolationists, and other paranoid bircher types before most would ever even consider them.We.. or Republicans... I am no longer one. Have RINOs and what would have been Democrats 20 years ago. Let them have the old dead and rotting elephant. Let's join the "Constitution" Party and make our agenda the support of the 2nd greatest document mankind has ever known. Now is the perfect storm. If it can't be done after this dismal performance, then it never can. If we could get Sarah Palin and/or Bobby Jindal and a few big time conservative talk hosts on board, we could sweep the communist out of their political stranglehold. The Constitution by it's very name is a GREAT brand. It represents freedom around the world and it sends marxist scum like Obama into convulsions and causes them to spew comments like "negative" rights. Hannity, if you are listening. This is your moment. Get your friends on board. Herman Cain, this is the re-branding you are wanting for the conservative cause and for America. Come on people. Enough with the left, the media and the blue bloods. Let's do what our ancestors 220 years ago did. Let's perform a massive Boston Tea Party and get rid of the Republican Albatross around our necks.

The Constitution Party left me when they joined whole hog in Bush Bashing, and turned suddenly anti-Iraq war. All one has to do is read a few columns written by Robert Scheer and you will have the sense of today’s Constitution Party. They are a one message party having been taken over by the most radical of anti-abortion folks.

Lest someone get the mistaken idea I am not pro life, I come from a state that in four years has twice had a ballot initiative to ban the practice. I voted both times for the initiative which lost approximately 60/40 both times. IMHO the Constitution Party is off the deep end.

Stay with the Republicans or Democrats. Life begins at conception.

Ok, then lets take it over and dedicate it to the constitution. It would be a lesser effort than changing the blue bloods that have control of the Republican party, and we might get some of those who passed prop 8, but wouldn't vote for the "elite rich guy" party of Republicans.

I know it isn't fair to brand the Republicans as the party of rich, elite white guys, but, that is what has happened.

Would it not be easier just to start a new party and cut off the cancerous tissue?

I would rather work on cleaning the Republican Party from the inside, as people seem fired up to do, than to jump on whatever third party (or in the Constitution Party’s case, fourth or fifth tier) dejour there is..

As a friend said recently, there is very little Constitutional about the Constitution party, they crossed the line long ago from being anti Statist to just being anti State.

A party with the likes of Chuck Baldwin, John Loftin, Michael Petroutka, et al, have very little to appeal to Conservatives.
