Rod & Jan Farthing

By Donald Dodd:

Not many people around the state have heard of Rod Farthing, and in all likelihood, there probably aren’t a lot of people in Salem who know we have a favorite son whose name isn’t Jason Smith on the statewide ballot.… Read more ...

Chuck Baldwin: Democrats Want Votes; Republicans Want Cheap Labor…But What Do Globalists Want?

Posted by 2008 Constitution Party Presidential candidate Chuck Baldwin at ChuckBaldwinLive.com:

The invasion of illegal aliens across our southern border is no extemporaneous event. It is a cold, calculated, and cunning attempt to fundamentally change America. The Obama Administration has sent a loud and clear signal to our neighbors to the south that illegals are welcome, that they won’t be sent home, and that they will be provided either real or de facto amnesty–especially if those illegals are minors.… Read more ...

Why I failed to Unite the ‘Constitutional Right’

July 23, 2014 

by Cody Quirk

Sadly, as the title implies, this is going to be my last editorial on this subject for years to come, and for good reason.

I was not the first to attempt this great feat in American minor-party politics, though I certainly got farther then most of the previous attempts, and yet for several important reasons; I have failed to unify the ‘right-wing’ (or as some may call the “far-right”) of the minor-party spectrum.… Read more ...

Constitution Party: Does the Media Get It?

Commentators for MSNBC noted this last week: “How do you explain why independent candidates are unlikely to play a major role this election season when Washington and the two main political parties are so unpopular? There’s a blunt answer: If you’re a serious candidate with a solid resume and you are even considering a third-party candidacy, the game is rigged against you.”

It is so helpful that the media is finally taking notice of our David vs.… Read more ...

Courthouse News Service: Hardship for Minor Parties in PA Struck Down

By Nick Divito:

Minor political parties can challenge Pennsylvania rules that require them to shoulder the costs when major parties challenge their ballot petitions, the 3rd Circuit ruled.

“It would be a sad irony indeed if the state that prides itself on being the cradle of American liberty had unlawfully restrictive ballot access laws,” the court’s 54-page opinion published Wednesday states.… Read more ...

Opposition News: Constitution Party Appealing to Parents Online

Just when you thought the Constitution Party might take a rest from their noticeably accelerated campaigning, the party launches another nationwide awareness campaign. This time, party leaders used popular social media sites like Facebook and Google to get their message out. And appealing to parents of school-age children, the ads went straight at the unpopular national education program Common Core.… Read more ...

Ballot Access News: All Statewide Illinois General Election Petitions Challenged

All of the statewide Illinois petitions submitted for the general election this year have been challenged. The independent candidates for Governor and U.S. Senator will certainly be removed from the ballot, because none of them had as many signatures as the legal requirement, 25,000. The three statewide minor party petitions all have over 25,000, however, so the challenge process will be grueling.… Read more ...
