To: Electoral College, Congress of the United States, Federal Elections Commission, U.S. Supreme Court, President of the United States, other controlling legal authorities

Whereas, by requirement of the United States Constitution, Article 2, Section 1, no one can be sworn into office as president of the United States without being a natural born citizen;

Whereas, there is sufficient controversy within the citizenry of the United States as to whether presidential election winner Barack Obama was actually born in Hawaii as he claims;

Whereas, Barack Obama has refused repeated calls to release publicly his entire Hawaiian birth certificate, which would include the actual hospital that performed the delivery;

Whereas, lawsuits filed in several states seeking only proof of the basic minimal standard of eligibility have been rebuffed;

Whereas, Hawaii at the time of Obama's birth allowed births that took place in foreign countries to be registered in Hawaii;

Whereas, concerns that our government is not taking this constitutional question seriously will result in diminished confidence in our system of free and fair elections;

We, the undersigned, assert our rights as citizens of the United States in demanding that the constitutional eligibility requirement be taken seriously and that any and all controlling legal authorities in this matter examine the complete birth certificate of Barack Obama, including the actual city and hospital of birth, and make that document available to the American people for inspection.

2008 Constitution Party Platform: Sanctity of Life

The Declaration of Independence states:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

The Preamble of the Constitution states a purpose of the Constitution to be to:

“secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity."

We declare the unalienable right of Life to be secured by our Constitution “to ourselves and our Posterity“. Our posterity includes children born and future generations yet unborn. Any legalization of the termination of innocent life of the born or unborn is a direct violation of our unalienable right to life.

The pre-born child, whose life begins at fertilization, is a human being created in God’s image. The first duty of the law is to prevent the shedding of innocent blood. It is, therefore, the duty of all civil governments to secure and to safeguard the lives of the pre-born.

To that end, the Constitution of these United States was ordained and established for “ourselves and our Posterity.” Under no circumstances may the federal government fund or otherwise support any state or local government or any organization or entity, foreign or domestic, which advocates, encourages or participates in the practice of abortion. We also oppose the distribution and use of all abortifacients.

We affirm the God-given legal personhood of all unborn human beings, without exception. As to matters of rape and incest, it is unconscionable to take the life of an innocent child for the crimes of his father.

No government may legalize the taking of the unalienable right to life without justification, including the life of the pre-born; abortion may not be declared lawful by any institution of state or local government - legislative, judicial, or executive. The right to life should not be made dependent upon a vote of a majority of any legislative body.

In addition, Article IV of the Constitution guarantees to each state a republican form of government. Therefore, although a Supreme Court opinion is binding on the parties to the controversy as to the particulars of the case, it is not a political rule for the nation. Roe v. Wade is an illegitimate usurpation of authority, contrary to the law of the nation’s Charter and Constitution. It must be resisted by all civil government officials, federal, state, and local, and by all branches of the government - legislative, executive, and judicial.

We affirm both the authority and duty of Congress to limit the appellate jurisdiction of the Supreme Court in all cases of abortion in accordance with the U.S. Constitution, Article III, Section 2.

In office, we shall only appoint to the federal judiciary, and to other positions of federal authority, qualified individuals who publicly acknowledge and commit themselves to the legal personhood of the pre-born child. In addition, we will do all that is within our power to encourage federal, state, and local government officials to protect the sanctity of the life of the pre-born through legislation, executive action, and judicial enforcement of the law of the land.

Further, we condemn the misuse of federal laws against pro-life demonstrators, and strongly urge the repeal of the FACE Acts as an unconstitutional expansion of federal power into areas reserved to the states or people by the Tenth Amendment.

In addition, we oppose the funding and legalization of bio-research involving human embryonic or pre-embryonic cells.

Finally, we also oppose all government “legalization” of euthanasia, infanticide and suicide.

Washington's Thanksgiving Proclamation, 1789

Think that God has no place in national affairs? George Washington strongly disagrees...

By the President of the United States of America. A Proclamation.

Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor -- and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint committee requested me "to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness."

Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the people of these states to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be -- That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks -- for his kind care and protection of the people of this country previous to their becoming a nation -- for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his providence which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war -- for the great degree of tranquillity, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed -- for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national one now lately instituted -- for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed; and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.

And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions -- to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually -- to render our national government a blessing to all the people, by constantly being a government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed -- to protect and guide all sovereigns and nations (especially such as have shown kindness onto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord -- to promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the encrease of science among them and us -- and generally to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as He alone knows to be best.

Given under my hand at the City of New York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.

-- George Washington

Faith and the Founding Fathers

(excerpted from

While making certain not to endorse any denomination of religion over another, the founders of this nation made it emphatically clear that the principles upon which this Nation was built are based squarely upon the Bible.

Virtually every one of the 55 writers and signers of the United States Constitution were members of various Christian denominations: 29 were Anglicans; 16 to 18 were Calvinists; 2 were Methodists; 2 were Lutherans; 2 were Roman Catholic; 1 lapsed Quaker and sometimes Anglican, and; 1 open deist--Dr. Franklin who attended every kind of Christian worship, called for public prayer, and contributed to all denominations.

George Mason is called the father of the Bill of Rights, for he insisted that the first ten amendments be added to the Constitution. The purpose for such an addition? "The laws of nature are the laws of God, whose authority can be superseded by no power on earth," Mason said.

James McHenry was a member of the Continental Congress, a state legislator, a soldier, and a signer of the well as the president of the first Bible Society in Baltimore. McHenry stated:

"Neither...let it be overlooked, that public utility pleads most forcibly for the general distribution of the Holy Scriptures."

"The doctrine they preach, the obligations they impose, the punishment they threaten, the rewards they promise, the stamp and image of divinity they bear, which produces a conviction of their truths, can alone secure to society, order and peace, and to our courts of justice and constitutions of government, purity, stability, and usefulness."

Charles Cotesworth Pinckney also signed the Constitution, and served as a delegate to the national Constitutional Convention, and was an author of the Constitution of South Carolina. Pinckney was a statesman, soldier, planter, a brigadier general and a candidate for President and Vice-President. Like the rest of the signers of the Constitution, he too recognized the Sovereignty of God:

"Blasphemy against the Almighty is denying his being or providence, or uttering contumelious reproaches on our Saviour Christ. It is punished, at common law by fine and imprisonment, for Christianity is part of the laws of the land."

And, for those who fear this sort of law breeds intolerance or disrespect for others, Patrick Henry boldly declared:

"It cannot be emphasized too strongly that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity and freedom of worship here" (bold Constitution Conscious).

Dear Mr. Obama: What's Missing in Ch _ _ ch?

(excerpted from

By Jonathan Martin & Carol E. Lee

"President-elect Barack Obama has yet to attend church services since winning the White House earlier this month, a departure from the example of his two immediate predecessors.

"On the three Sundays since his election, Obama has instead used his free time to get in workouts at a Chicago gym."

"...exercise yourself toward godliness.
For bodily exercise profits a little, but
godliness is profitable for all things..."

(1 Timothy 4:7-8).

Obamccain: Birds of a Feather 'Work Together'

(from, bold mine)

Lancaster, PA:
The Constitution Party, America’s fastest-growing third party, points out Monday’s meeting between president-elect Barack Obama and former GOP rival John McCain ( shows the striking similarity of both candidates when it comes to the issues.

Obama promised that his meeting with McCain was to “have a good conversation about how we can do some work together to fix up the country.”

Constitution Party National Committee Chairman Jim Clymer said, “It’s ludicrous to hear Obama say he and McCain can talk about 'fixing-up' the country when both these candidates supported the disastrous so-called 'bailouts' which can do no such thing.”


During Monday’s meeting with McCain, Obama said, “We shouldn’t worry about the deficit next year or even the year after....”

“It’s precisely that kind of thinking that got us into this mess in the first place," Clymer noted.

The Constitution Party challenged voters during the election to show any measurable difference between the two candidates on issues like illegal immigration, second amendment gun-owner rights, taxation, foreign intervention, unconstitutional wars and job-destroying “free-trade” schemes like NAFTA and GATT.

During Monday’s meeting, president-elect Obama pledged to "restore America’s moral standing in the world".

“This statement comes from the U.S. Senate’s most rabid pro-abort," said Clymer. “If Obama was so determined to 'restore America’s moral standing in the world' he would have started in Illinois. He would not have fought so hard to defeat the ‘Born Alive Infant Protection Act’.” ( That legislation offered babies who survived late term abortions humane care until their death.

“Obama apparently thinks infanticide is A-ok, at least during the first few hours post birth, and now he has the audacity of hope for 'moral standing' in the world?” Clymer asked.

The Constitution Party’s candidate for president, Chuck Baldwin, was the only candidate for president who was pro-life, pro-secure borders and pro-second amendment. Baldwin opposed the “bailouts”, challenged the constitutionality of the war in Iraq and promoted the abolition (sic) of the Federal Reserve and IRS. Baldwin was on the ballot in 37 states.


The Campaign Ad Everyone Should've Seen

A New Constitution Party Record!

Chuck Baldwin has officially broken the Constitution Party record for most presidential votes. The previous record had been set by Howard Phillips in 1996 and was 184,820 votes. Chuck Baldwin, according to David Leip’s US Election Atlas, has 186,335 votes. Write-in votes from a number of states have not been counted or finalized. Howard Phillips’ record was set during a year that the Constitution Party was on the ballot in some of the most populous states in the Union; Illinois, Texas, California, and Pennsylvania. Our of those four states, Chuck Baldwin was only on Illinois’ ballot in 2008.

Constitution Party Votes Up 24% in Missouri

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — None of its candidates won, but the Constitution Party is celebrating success in Missouri.

Constitution Party treasurer candidate Rodney Farthing got 2.4 percent of the vote in last week's election. That's a large enough proportion to ensure the party a spot on Missouri's 2010 and 2012 ballots. The party also will remain ballot qualified in 19 other states.

Chuck Baldwin, a conservative Florida minister, was the Constitution Party's presidential nominee, and was on the ballot in 37 states. Baldwin wants to end the federal income tax and stop U.S. military intervention, among other issues.

According to Constitution Party National Chairman James N. Clymer, Baldwin and his running mate Darrell Castle wound up with close to 179,000 votes nationwide. That's a 24 percent increase over the party's vote total in 2004.

Clymer noted that the party was not on the ballot in California or Pennsylvania, and in 2004 those states accounted for 33,000 votes. The Baldwin-Castle ticket even grabbed 3,418 write-in votes in Texas, the highest for any write-in candidate in that state.

In Missouri, the Constitution Party's accomplishment may have come at the expense of the Libertarian Party, the state's most established party after the Democrats and Republicans.

The Libertarian Party failed to reach the 2 percent threshold for any of its statewide candidates in the Nov. 4 election — a first since it appeared on Missouri's ballot in 1992, said Libertarian Party Executive Director Greg Tlapek.

Under Missouri law, a political party loses its reserved ballot spot if it fails to get at least 2 percent or to put forth a statewide candidate in two consecutive elections. That means 2010 will be a make-or-break year for Libertarians.

Tlapek said he wasn't sure what went wrong for Libertarians this year. But he noted two possibilities.

"I think that the presidential campaign kind of got people whipped up into a frenzy and feeling very partisan and unwilling to consider other options for fear of the party they didn't like winning," Tlapek said.

Also, the Libertarian and Constitution parties appeared to split the third-party vote in races where they both had candidates. More than 2 percent of the total vote went to third-party candidates for governor, lieutenant governor and secretary of state, but the Libertarian and Constitution party candidates got less than 2 percent each.

In the treasurer's race, the Libertarian Party did not field a candidate, leaving the Constitution Party candidate to receive all votes that weren't for Republican or Democratic candidates.

"We knew that we weren't going to win any seats," said Donna Ivanovich, the Missouri Constitution Party chairwoman. "The goal was to gain our 2 percent so that we would buy some more time basically to educate the people about the Constitution and Declaration of Independence and get them used to our name and field more candidates in the next election."

Now that it's won ballot status, the Constitution Party's goal is to build a broader organization, specifically, to establish local party leaders in each of Missouri's 114 counties and the city of St. Louis by the 2010 election, Ivanovich said.
