President Obama’s Debt Reduction Speech – A Constitution Party Response

Posted on Jul 26, 2011 | 0 comments

Last night President Obama addressed the nation in prime time concerning what he called “a debate we’ve been having in Washington over the national debt—a debate that directly affects the lives of all Americans.” The president’s position as announced in his speech could be summarized by saying that he emphasized

and what he called a balanced approach over the position of the Republican House. He said that compromise is a good thing, and he mentioned Ronald Reagan as an example of one who agreed with him about compromise.

His balanced approach would trim $4 trillion from the deficit over 10 years. Assuming interest rates do not increase over the next 10 years, that would reduce the rate of increase in the national debt from a projected $10 trillion to about $6 trillion, leaving a national debt of about $21 trillion.

Imperfect People vs. The Rule of Law

Posted on Jun 20, 2011 | 0 comments

Congressman Anthony Weiner, D-New York has received a lot of publicity lately. He twisted and squirmed like a worm in the sun attempting to rationalize his behavior. Finally after two agonizing weeks, he committed an honorable act and resigned his office. Former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, R-California announced recently that he had fathered a child out of wedlock with one of his house servants. Jesse Jackson, Sr. and Jesse Jackson, Jr. have both been involved in extramarital scandals. Newt Gingrich is well known for his womanizing. We remember former President Clinton, who really started all these very public sexual misdeeds with Monica Lewinsky. The Democrats were able to convince many Americans that a president’s private life did not impact his ability to be president. Our private lives are indicators of what our behavior and attitudes will be in public life....

Resolution for Opposition to Top Two Elections

Posted on May 23, 2011 | 0 comments

Whereas, popular dissatisfaction with the Democrat and Republican parties has never been higher and demand for more political change has never been greater, and

Whereas, in a Top Two election system all candidates for an office run against each other in the first round of voting, the two candidates with the most votes in the first round are nominated to move on to the final election, and in the final election between two candidates, the candidate with the most votes wins, and

Whereas, calls for Top Two election methods claim election efficiency and more representative candidates, but implementation of such systems has effectively limited choices for voters, therefore be it

Resolved, that the Constitution Party stands opposed to all Top Two election systems which result in limiting the choices for voters in general elections, and be it further

Resolved, the Constitution Party stands in unity with the principles espoused by The Free and Equal Elections Foundation and other like minded groups in opposing implementation of Top Two election systems and be it further

Resolved, the Constitution Party supports legal, legislative, and political action to repeal and rescind California and Washington “Top Two” election laws.

Resolution for Opposition to the Fair Tax

Posted on May 23, 2011 | 2 comments

Whereas, Constitution Party candidates are often asked for their position on the Fair Tax; and

Whereas, potential supporters of Constitution Party candidates often favor the Fair Tax, and

Whereas, Constitution Party candidates and leaders are being asked and will be asked their party’s position on the Fair Tax and the reasons for that position,

Whereas, the Fair Tax is a direct tax upon the people, not authorized by the US Constitution nor under the 16th Amendment; and

Whereas, the Fair Tax does not guarantee a lower overall level of taxation but could result in a higher level of taxation than is currently being paid by Americans; and

Whereas, the Fair Tax continues and expands the welfare state by establishing a “Family Consumption Allowance” (FCA) provided to every registered household, regardless of income, which, if implemented, would constitute the single largest entitlement program in American history; and

Whereas, the Fair Tax expands the size of government by replacing the Internal Revenue Service with two new federal agencies, the Excise Tax Bureau and Sales Tax Bureau, as well as state-level agencies, where the primary collecting of revenues would take place; and

Whereas, the Fair Tax makes the states the primary federal tax collection agency, and requires state taxing authorities to annually register every household and household member in the state, accelerating the current trend towards treating states as mere administrative and political subdivisions of the federal government, thus putting the Constitutional principle of state sovereignty (under the 10th Amendment) in even greater peril; and

Whereas, the Fair Tax is a new method of funding extra-Constitutional activities outside the enumerated powers of the General Welfare clause, ignoring the clear intent of the Article I, Section 8 powers of Congress; and

Whereas, only the electing of individuals with a good understanding of America’s founding principles and a firm commitment to frugality and fiscal accountability can fix what the Fair Tax pretends to address; and

Whereas, we see no constitutional authority whatsoever to support the case for the Fair Tax, therefore be it

Resolved, that the Constitution Party does not endorse the Fair Tax; and further be it

Resolved, that the Constitution Party supports instead a constitutionally-correct state-based apportioned tax system.

The United States Should Withdraw From the International Monetary Fund

Posted on May 23, 2011 | 0 comments

The IMF Annual Meeting in Washington, DC Currently headquartered in Washington DC, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) was formed in 1944 and finalized in 1945 as part of the Bretton Woods agreement made by the victorious Allied Powers at the end of WWII. The IMF’s stated purposes are as follows: To promote exchange rate stability; To facilitate and manage the growth and balance of international trade; To provide resources to member countries experiencing balance of payments problems; To help maintain a multilateral system of payments; And finally, to promote international monetary cooperation. Despite its stated purposes, many people believe that the real purpose of the IMF is to bring poorer, less-industrialized countries into the orbit of global government and multinational corporations. According to John Perkins in his book Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, third world countries have been...

Americans Get It!

Posted on May 11, 2011 | 1 comment

Despite what our elected officials may claim, Americans understand our National Debt is a serious problem and they want it fixed NOW. In a May 3rd Reason-Rupe poll, the respected polling firm found an astounding 96% of Americans say it is “important” to reduce the National Debt with an equally astounding 69% saying it is “very important” to reduce the National Debt. Contrary to Washington D.C.’s best efforts to fool us, the American people get it. The Federal government cannot borrow and spend as if there are no limits. The survey also found 74% of respondents support a “spending cap” that would prohibit the Federal government from spending more money than it takes in during a fiscal year. The American people intuitively understand they can’t consistently spend more money each month than they earn and they expect their government,...
