I’m that way with politics and government too. I want to find the foundational principles that make for good government, the eternal truths that can tell me which policies are right or wrong. I want to make sure I’m getting to the root of the matter and am not being distracted by something superficial.
I realize not everyone is like me and I don’t expect you to be. However, there are times in life when we absolutely must understand what is at the root of a matter and make sure we are dealing with it at the source. If not, we’ll be destined to futility in our dealings with it and we’ll never be able to fix it when it’s broken. Think about it – you don’t go to a doctor just to talk with him about how you feel, then have him give you something to relieve those symptoms. You go to a doctor to have him correctly diagnose the root cause of the symptoms so you can fix the problem at its source.

It is true because we have created a culture where criminal behavior is everybody else’s fault, except the criminal themselves. Alderman Davis is, of course, pandering to his constituents, so I don’t expect much of him. However, this is the prevailing attitude from most of the leadership throughout Milwaukee County. Frankly, we should know better.
Here is my piece of advice: When you decide to break the law, whether it is stealing a car or stealing a piece of gum, you are operating outside of the law. You are an outlaw. When you become an outlaw, YOU are responsible for the entire chain of events that happens as a result. Therefore, if you want to avoid unnecessary harm or death, DON’T BREAK THE LAW! - Jerry B***

The Constitution Party of Wisconsin (CPoW) considers morality as Job #1. If the moral order is restored to the decision making process, then sound social and fiscal decisions will follow. Most people can see the logic in this, even if sounds too “religious” for them.
John Adams said that we must have a moral and religious people in order for our constitutional form of government to succeed.
“We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for any other.” – John Adams
However, what is morality? In our current culture of moral relativism, morality is “being true to one’s self.” In other words, if I believe it to be true and I am somewhat consistent in that belief, then I am being “moral,” so long as it does not hurt anyone else. Has a nice ring to it, right? Well, every murderous dictator throughout history has been “true to one’s self,” so there is a very fundamental flaw in that way of thinking.
But let’s use a different, hypothetical example: Let’s say, for instance, that I truly believe everybody should dye their hair purple. If everyone in America dyed their hair purple, we would all have something in common and be less suspicious of each other. As such, the crime rate would plummet and we would live harmonious, productive lives. Remember, I truly believe this, I have been consistent in this mind-set and it doesn’t hurt anyone. Therefore, I am being moral. Because I am a moral human being, I begin a multi-year, national campaign to implement my idea. Over time, the US Congress is convinced of the merits of my idea and passes a law: All Americans must now dye their hair purple.
Does this sound silly? Well, congress passes laws in this manner every day. Without an objective moral standard, the majority will determine what kind of laws are passed, no matter how silly they appear.
At CPoW, we believe in the moral absolute as found in God’s Word, the Bible. Now, just to prevent confusion, we look to the King James Bible for the true Word of God. Our Founding Fathers did the same, so we must be on solid ground. It is clear that our Founding Fathers derived the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution from biblical principles. Currently, the United States has strayed far from it. We intend to bring it back on course. We will restore the moral order as found in God’s Word and restore the constitutional principles on which this country was founded. At CPoW, morality is Job #1.
