While at the local farmer's market Friday I overheard heard some people talking about the American Party. One that has representatives that actually read bills they are voting on. One that demands only role call votes so the people being represented know exactly how their representative voted. A party that would change the Constitution the only by Amendments to it. The legal way!

Party affiliation is rapidly becoming a thing of the past. If your party doesn't represent you find a candidate that will. If you are a "registered" whatever (Dem, Rep, Ind.) vote for the candidate that has voted the way you would have. The only way Washington will get the message is through the voting box.

Remember, a no vote is a vote for what you don't want! Investigate, question, VOTE!

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
I was unable to upload the pdf documents but here is the link to it. Please read it and see for yourself what we as a nation have done and how far we have come. I know this does not have anything directly to do with Ethanol, but check it out anyway....

Steve I am not familiar at all with the American Party. Matter of fact, I never heard of them until you mentioned them. I personally really like the Constitution party. They really do stand on their name. The Constitution. The Declaration of Independence, The Constitution of the United States and The Bill of Rights are the basis for their platform.

They seek to eliminate congressional pensions. They support legislation to prohibit the attachment of unrelated riders to bills. Any amendments must fit within the scope and object of the original bill. They essentially oppose Presidential Executive Orders. Their entire platform, including the above mentioned issues, are based on The Declaration of Independence, The Constitution of the United States and The Bill of Rights. What more can you ask for.


Their platform is far more detailed than the American Party's is. Here is a link to the Constitution Party's platform info: http://www.constitutionparty.com/party_platform.php

I would have to do some research to prove this one way or the other but I know that the Constitution Party opposes the 17 amendment stating that it is not constitutional.... Like said, without researching it and ind out what they are talking about etc I can not take a position on that.

Ok, I found the violation. It is in Article 1, section 3 of the constitution...

The difference is here:

Constitution Article 1, section 3:
Quote:
The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each State, chosen by the Legislature thereof, for six Years; and each Senator shall have one Vote.
VS.

17 Amendment:
Quote:
The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each State, elected by the people thereof, for six years; and each Senator shall have one vote. The electors in each State shall have the qualifications requisite for electors of the most numerous branch of the State legislatures.

Wow!

A lot to digest! Definitely not in the best interest of today's politicians. I foresee great opposition to this party by the powers that be.

I do however, view it as a great starting point for judging all candidates. How does their record and rederick jive with the Constitution Party views.

I still feel that everyone should vote on how they are and should be represented. As I said earlier, if you chose not to vote, you are actually voting for what you don't want. If you don't vote, you have no right to complain. You have to be an informed voter!

Steve

Agreed, Vote, or forever hold your peace for the damage that was/is being done by the evil ones who are voted in. Find a good candidate, vote for them, and campaign for them.

It is never good enough to not vote for someone because you don't think they have a flying chance. If you vote for someone you don't believe in then you are voting for the enemy. Example, if you believed in Chuck Baldwin (presidential candidate during this last election) but you believed he did not have a chance to get elected, so you voted for EITHER McCain or Obama, then you voted against Baldwin. It was not alone that you voted for one of the others, but you really voted AGAINST Baldwin.

Let me just ask, can you imagine the result of having Baldwin in as a president with the current congress? Either way, he would not be able to do much good because the other 2 parties would stick together to override his vetoes (and we know there would be plenty vetoes). I believe we need to really work on getting third party candidates into office on the local and state level to where people start seeing the good effects of that. Get the people to believe in the parties and the strengths of third parties.....

BTW guys, did you read the "not yours to give" flier on the Constitution party's website?

Once you read and appreciate that, you will understand the trouble we are in as a nation...

-Eli
