I did a little research on a group of extremists calling themselves the Constitution Party. It seems to be a very dangerous group that if it had its was would through America into a government ruled by hate mongers and bigots. All of the quotes I have laid out are from their actual party platform. Here is the address if you care to check them out for yourself. HERE IS THE LINK
The Preamble eludes to Christianity being the only religion allowed under a Constitution Party government.
“This great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been and are afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here.”
“The goal of the Constitution Party is to restore American jurisprudence to its Biblical foundations and to limit the federal government to its Constitutional boundaries.”
Hate and Hate Crimes are allowed under a Constitution Party government.
“We are opposed to “hate crime” legislation and to enhanced penalties for so called hate crimes. We recognize that a real result of the designation of “hate crime” is to extend federal jurisdiction to crimes which would otherwise be in the province of the states.”
If you are a victim rape or a victim of incest that’s just too bad.
“We affirm the God-given legal personhood of all unborn human beings, without exception. As to matters of rape and incest, it is unconscionable to take the life of an innocent child for the crimes of his father.”
You won’t be allowed to elect your Senator, the state will do that for you.
“If we are to see a return to the states those powers, programs, and sources of revenue that the federal government has unconstitutionally taken away, then it is also vital that we repeal the Seventeenth Amendment and return to state legislatures the function of electing the U.S. Senate.”
Don’t worry about having an army, the local militia rednecks will protect you.
“We support a well-trained and highly organized volunteer state home militia,”
“We fully support well regulated militias organized at the state level. Further, we fully support and encourage the restoration of unorganized militia at the county and community level”
There are no more woman’s rights
“We reject the policies and practices that permit women to train for or participate in combat. Because of the radical feminization of the military over the past two decades, it must be recognized that these “advances” undermine the integrity, morale, and performance of our military organizations by dual qualification standards and forced integration.”
Who needs education ?
“Because the federal government has absolutely no jurisdiction concerning the education of our children, the United States Department of Education should be abolished; all federal legislation related to education should be repealed.”
African Americans don’t get to vote anymore under a Constitution Party government.
“The Voting Rights Act should be repealed”
What this would repeal:
The National Voting Rights Act of 1965 outlawed discriminatory voting practices that had been responsible for the widespread disenfranchisement of African Americans in the United States. Echoing the language of the 15th amendment, the Act prohibited states from imposing any “voting qualification or prerequisite to voting, or standard, practice, or procedure … to deny or abridge the right of any citizen of the United States to vote on account of race or color.”
Screw the environment:
“We also call for repeal of federal wetlands legislation and the federal Endangered Species Act”
Gay people have no rights under a Constitution Party government.
“We oppose all efforts to impose a new sexual legal order through the federal court system. We stand against so-called “sexual orientation” and “hate crime” statutes that attempt to legitimize inappropriate sexual behavior and to stifle public resistance to its expression. We oppose government funding of “partner” benefits for unmarried individuals. Finally, we oppose any legal recognition of homosexual unions.”
“We affirm the value of the father and the mother in the home, and we oppose efforts to legalize adoption of children by homosexual singles or couples”
No More Immigration
“We favor a moratorium on immigration to these United States, except in extreme hardship cases or in other individual special circumstances,”
Only the free speech the Constitution Party allows.
“We call on our local, state and federal governments to uphold our cherished First Amendment right to free speech by vigorously enforcing our laws against obscenity to maintain a degree of separation between that which is truly speech and that which only seeks to distort and destroy.”
Eliminate Social Security
“The Constitution grants no authority to the federal government to administrate a Social Security system. The Constitution Party advocates phasing out the entire Social Security program, while continuing to meet the obligations already incurred under the system. Until the current Social Security system can be responsibly phased out”
Reverse who won the US Civil War
“The Constitution delegated few, enumerated powers to the Federal Government, reserving all remaining powers to the States and the people. Thus, powers of the Federal were the exception.”
On Washington DC and Puerto Rico
“We oppose any effort to confer statehood on the District of Columbia or any representation in Congress comparable to that of an independent state in the federal union.”
“We oppose efforts to confer statehood upon the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico or expand statehood beyond the current fifty states.”
These people are a serious threat to the United States and the rights of its citizens. They have taken a bunch of hate mongers, KKK and white supremacists, and thrown in some religious intolerance and are calling it the Constitution Party. This is the modern Nazi Party if there ever was one.
