I have been rethinking my political affiliation and I know the Republican party no longer represents the true Conservative. I have looked at the Libertarians, Republican and the Constitution Party. The Constitution Party seems to hold a majority of my values to heart. There are a few values I do not fully agree with but NO party exactly matches my beliefs. What to do? I will retain my registry as a Republican for voting purposes, in hopes that one day a TRUE Republican will return to be elected. Because the restrictions of voting in the primaries pretty much eliminates 3rd parties.
Our Country has lost its way and is in the process of eliminating out Constitution. what made this country great is the constitution. What is destroying this country is bastardization of the intent of the founding documents. The words are clear. The intent is clear. The founders knew government would take away the very rights they had written into the document if they were not specific.
Q:Is the Constitution Out of Date?
A: The Constitution was written to specifically define the powers granted (by the people)to the federal government.The powers enumerated in the Constitution, were set forth after grueling deliberation by the Framers who were living under the tyranny of British rule.The rights guaranteed under the Constitution dealt with basic rights that derive from "Natural Law" (i.e. God's Law) and those basics don't change over time regardless of how advanced technology or society becomes.
Natural law and unalienable rights are timeless.
The Founders knew that governments tend to become tyrannical if they have unchecked power which is why the basic freedoms of Life, Liberty and Property were codified as the framework of American liberty.
All of the rights mentioned in the Bill of Rights were specified because our Founding Fathers knew that each on would be necessary to reign in the central government. From freedom of speech, to the right to own guns, the right to a fair trial, the right not to be searched without a warrant, these enumerated guarantees stand the test of time because without each one, liberty would be compromised. Over the years the Constitution has been ignored and the problems our country faces are the direct result of allowing the federal government to have powers not granted to it by the Constitution.The question best asked is this: "Which amendment would you be willing to give up?"
Please read The Constitution Party platform
I would link to the GOP and the DNC but neither party represents the platform the were founded on or the people they were elected to represent. They are out of control self proclaimed royalty that needs to be stopped. They need to be fired. Some need to be prosecuted for treason and crimes against America. You decide.
