Summertime is here! Children are out of school. Memorial Day gave us opportunity to remember those who gave their last measure of devotion to our nation. And frustrations with the Republican-Democrat duopoly continue to heat up. Hard questions are being asked about whether the duopoly actually represents what they tell the voters. Devoted partisan activists are faced with their political party’s rejection of values they hold dear. Now is the time for a separate, unique, and distinct political party, and as ballot access petition signer remarked this is the year the Constitution Party can build it from the grassroots up!
In this month’s Update we highlight the upcoming 2016 State Convention on Friday evening, June 10th in McDonough, and the status of ballot access efforts in Georgia from Ballot Access Coordinator Carolyn Cosby. This month's articles address topics of Georgia electoral politics, discuss the criteria for voting, training your politician (instead of the other way around), and the proper role of the courts in applying the law. These are also available on the state party website, and speak to a number of current discussions surrounding politics.
Howard Phillips' political philosophy promoted the basic principles of Christian civil government. This cannot be achieved by duopoly reform groups like the Democratic Pro-Life Caucus, the various TEA Party groups, or the Republican Assembly, but rather by the Constitution Party of Georgia (CP-Ga) working to build a multifaceted network of like-minded supporters and organizations to achieve specific political ends with a multi-generational vision to build. True spiritual revival in our communities provides the soil in which the CP-Ga can thrive. The party’s expansion will be paced with the growth of a constituency that will vote for representatives who have the courage to implement the party's principles.
Currently all of the party’s elected officials around the country are serving in local offices. Here's the long game: our presidential campaign attracts voters, building our base of support. This positions us to win battles over the next four years in our communities!
With a vision of victory,

“If you don’t vote your values, you’re voting for someone else’s values.”
That’s the keystone message of How To Train Your Politician: Intentional Voting as a Path to Tea Party and Constitutional Victory.
It stands against a 30-year legacy of “hold your nose and vote for the lesser evil” voting patterns.
How did socialist-minded John Boehner become the “leader” of the Republican Party? For 30 years we’d been electing people just like him – people who were supposedly “better than the other guy” for no better reason than they had an “R” after their name on the ballot.Read more
The tragic and untimely death of Justice Antonin Scalia has had one good effect: It has brought the terms “Textualism” and “Originalism” before the public eye. Textualism is the doctrine that a law (specifically, the Constitution) says what its text says. And Originalism is the doctrine that the text means what it would have meant to the people who wrote it and to the original audience for which they wrote it. Justice Scalia was the great champion of this view in our generation.Read more
As interest rises in alternative political parties like the Constitution Party the old fear-based argument is repeated, “I can’t support the Constitution Party because it will help Hillary get elected.” But election data and trends in Georgia show that this is not the case.Read more
