The following is the text of an email from Constitution Party National Chairman Frank Fluckiger, sent out to CP supporters and members today:
The Constitution Party calls “upon the President,
and Congress, to terminate United States membership
in the United Nations, and its subsidiary organizations,
and terminate U.S. participation in all so-called
U.N. peace keeping operations …”
Dear Friend of Liberty:
That is from our national platform, and is based on the advice of our Founding Fathers. It was John Quincy Adams who reminded future generations of patriots that America “goes not abroad in search of monsters to destroy.”
The battle to re-gain the sovereignty of the United States is being fought on a variety of fronts. American workers are undermined by one-sided trade pacts, membership in NATO has resulted in putting our combat personnel at risk in places where we simply do not belong, and Washington’s meddling in Middle East affairs has caused us nothing but trouble … and a lot of taxpayer dollars.
It is the U.S. entanglement with the United Nations, however, that forms the center of the fight. Whether it is a global gun grab, advocating abortion-on-demand policies, supporting radical environmental regulations, or its drive for a central command of the world’s armies, the U.N. is our chief adversary.
That’s why I urge you to support HR 75, the American Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2013, introduced by Congressman Paul Broun Jr.of Georgia. The legislation reads in part:
“The President shall terminate all membership by the United States in the United Nations, and in any organ, specialized agency, commission, or other formally affiliated body of the United Nations. The United States Mission to the United Nations [shall be] closed. Any remaining functions of such office shall not be carried out.”
Like it or not, and whether he knows it or not, Mr. Broun has introduced a Constitution Party platform plank in Congress.
I wish I could say that our success rests on distribution of membership forms or even the party platform. Effective political action is requires more. We must reach out to fellow Constitutionalists and show them by our actionsthat we are hard-working, knowledgeable, and focused on key issues. By building issue coalitions and working with allies, we will bring in members. That’s politics 101.
I recommend three action items. First contact your own member of Congress and urge them to co-sponsor the bill. In doing so, let them know you are a member of the Constitution Party and this legislation is bi-partisan in nature. Second, contact fellow members of the Constitution Party as a follow-up to this message to ensure we are all part of the legislative action on Capitol Hill. Finally, contact friends and allies outside your party network and tell them to support the bill—send the link to our platform and have them review the section addressing the U.N. Let’s make sure this is part of our Constitution Party-building activities.
As always, my gratitude for your financial investments, your devotion to the issues that define us as Constitutionalists, and the work you do to build our party.
