Here is an alternative to politics as usual

Gallup polls show voters are not satisfied with the performance of politicians of either party. For many there is a sense that one party is about as bad as another. Whether Democrat or Republican, it is very unlikely that meaningful and lasting change will ever occur.

Xenia has been a bastion of Republican politics for many years. The same can be said for Greene County as well. Few Democrats have been able to get their foot in the door or to stay in government very long. I think that is a good thing.

The more I learn the more I see Democrats as a party against the traditions of America. I mean legal, economic, religious, and moral traditions. Democrats and other secular fundamentalist have redefined those traditions in the attempts to create a culture where they can do whatever they want, whenever they want, and however they want. Democrats represent Soviet-style socialism and anarchism, which has been inhibited somewhat by a majority who claim to hold traditional values and views and the Constitution. Democrat socialism is what state welfare is all about. The sexual revolution, easy divorce, single parenting, single parent poverty, gay rights, aids, abortion, sex-related violence represent their ideology and its outcomes. So is lawlessness. They have achieved all of those blessings of anarchy not by changing the Constitution but lying to state officials and judges to get their way. Legal history shows what they mean by Separation of Church and State is not what Congress agreed to either in 1791 or 1871. Congress rejects their attempts to amend the First Amendment to include the phrase separation of church and state or rather separation of religion and its morality from the state and public policy. Yet, they achieved a large measure of their goal through arbitrary rulings of federal courts. That is why I hope Democrats never get their foothold in local politics.

The problem is some Republican insiders have demonstrated they are almost as corrupt as the Democrats. Like in marriage, truth and faithfulness is synonymous to trust. Trust is rock of good relationships. When trusted politicians lie to their constituency, they loose both credibility and trust. That means they no longer deserve to represent the people. It is unfortunate that Steve Austria is that kind of politician. If his mentor had run for office again, I would have voted for someone else. Why? He started compromising with the Democrats voting with them in support of the gay agenda. In other place, Republicans are doing the same. They are beginning to compromise on moral and social values issues not just on economic ones.

Pres. Bush along with Congress declared war against an elusive enemy not merely to rid the world of so-called terrorists but to reenact the cold war and its economic benefits by another name. Corporate finance was built upon war. Wall Street has grown by leaps and bounds to fund war and war technologies. America is one, if the number 1, supplier of arms and other military goods and services. America government is the big consuming Pit Bull of the world. Because it is, the impoverishing machine keeps talking about alleviating poverty and creating new public programs to do so while maintaining it and often increasing the number on their hit list. It is a partnership of public and corporate governance.

An alternative to business and politics as usual does exist. It is called the Constitutional Party. It represents the founding political, economic, moral, and social tradition of the American experiment. The Constitutional Party purposefully seeks to reinstate the kind of public policies informed by the wise counsels of history. That is what the founders did when they created the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. That is purpose of common law precedent, which today is selective used for political agendas. The Constitutional Party endorsed John Mitchel, a local Greene County’s candidate, who was running to carry that goal to Congress in November.

The Constitutional Party is one whose platform Protestants, Catholics, Jews, and Muslims, and Americans who still value the traditions of liberty and human rights informed by morality can support. A couple of excerpts from the party’s preamble will show why:

The goal of the Constitution Party of Ohio is to restore American jurisprudence to its Biblical foundations and to limit the federal government to its Constitutional boundaries.

The Constitution of the United States provides that “no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.” The Constitution Party of Ohio supports the original intent of this language. Therefore, the Constitution Party of Ohio calls on all those who love liberty and value their inherent rights to join with us in the pursuit of these goals and in the restoration of these founding principles.

The U.S. Constitution established a Republic rooted in Biblical law, administered by representatives who are constitutionally elected by the citizens. In such a Republic all Life, Liberty and Property are protected because law rules.

That history makes clear that left unchecked, it is the nature of government to usurp the liberty of its citizens and eventually become a major violator of the people’s rights; and

That, therefore, it is essential to bind government with the chains of the Constitution and carefully divide and jealously limit government powers to those assigned by the consent of the governed.

As previously stated, Democrats and other secular fundamentalist oppose those founding principles. They have and are usurping our liberty and the rule of law.

The Constitutional Party is guided by seven key principles, which are:

1. Life: For all human beings, from conception to natural death;

2. Liberty: Freedom of conscience and actions for the self-governed individual;

3. Family: One husband and one wife with their children as divinely instituted;

4. Property: Each individual’s right to own and steward personal property without government burden;

5. Constitution: and Bill of Rights interpreted according to the actual intent of the Founding Fathers;

6. States’ Rights: Everything not specifically delegated by the Constitution to the federal government is reserved for the state and local jurisdictions;

7. American Sovereignty: American government committed to the protection of the borders, trade, and common defense of Americans, and not entangled in foreign alliances.

For the Constitutional Party to become a viable contender in local, state, and national politics, Americans must join the party and demand its inclusion in campaign coverage and debates. It is not too late to start.
