Don’t You Know There Is A War On?

Jerry Broitzman:

In light of the events in Paris, this is worth repeating. It’s time to WAKE UP!

I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war.” Psalms 120:7

By Riley J. Hood-State Chairman

            There has been a war on since 630AD. What war is that? It is the Islamic war to take over the world; and that includes America. Before America became a military power, Muslims referred to the British Empire as the “Great Satan.” Why? Because England’s Navy was closing down the Islamic slave trade and curbing Islamic Piracy.  Early in our history, American citizens were being enslaved on the high seas by the Barbary Pirates. They were Muslims, supported by the Ottoman Empire. The phrases “going pirate,” and “turning Turk” were interchangeable in the 1700s and early 1800s.  Our US Constitution Article I, Section 8, paragraphs 11-12 provides for letters of Marque and Reprisal, meaning Congress may authorize armed merchantmen to take these pirates…

High-Tax, Big-Government Republicans

Originally posted on American Perspective:

Big Government 230When the 2015-17 Washington state budget was finally passed back in June of this year, I heard boasts emanating from the Republican Party about how they held the line against democrats and managed to pass a budget without raising taxes. My first reaction was incredulity. My next response was to question whether I had been misjudging republicans and being unduly critical of them. However, a little research quickly revealed that I was being lied to, though it wasn’t until this past week that I heard an actual price tag placed on the cost of that lie.

In a radio program featuring Washington State Representative David Taylor, and former Representative Jason Overstreet, Representative Taylor revealed that the new state budget (which was passed with the support of 90% of republican legislators) increases taxes on Washingtonians by $17.5 billion over the next ten years. As Overstreet points out, Republican leadership…

Why Do People Fight to Justify Sin?

Jerry Broitzman:

A good article from the Chairman of the Constitution Party of Washington, Bob Peck.

Originally posted on American Perspective:

FightPeople can usually have a polite discussion about differences of opinion on issues that are of a nonmoral nature (what color to paint the house, should the new highway be two lanes or four), but when the conversation turns to a topic that is of an inherently moral nature (right vs wrong, something that must be labeled as either “moral” or “immoral”), one party usually becomes inflamed and will go on the offensive attempting to justify their chosen conduct. The current attempts to justify, and even normalize, homosexual conduct is a prime example.

Why do people feel the need to justify their conduct? If they really believe that what they’re doing isn’t wrong, then why care what other people think? Well, they do it for the same reason that a child caught with their hand in the cookie jar makes up excuses to justify what they’re doing – a guilty…

Christian Americans and the ‘Free Exercise’ of their Faith Now Equals Establishment of a ‘Theocracy?’

   After reading about Kentucky’s Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis refusing to issue marriage licenses to homosexual couples, invoking her First Amendment rights, I read the usual absurd Internet postings “Separation of church and state” and “There go the Christians imposing their faith again.”  But it was the online posting replies to presidential candidate Mike Huckabee speaking at a rally at her release from prison that I read this leftist rant: “Just more proof Huckabee and his ilk want to create a Christian theocracy.”

It reminded me of my 2014 campaign for Wisconsin state treasurer for the Constitution Party of Wisconsin (CPoW) and my participation in a candidate forum at Oshkosh’s City Cable 10 offices with another candidate.  One of the moderators was Tony Palmeri, writer to a regional free paper.  During the live forum, Palmeri told me he visited our party’s web site ( or and he asked me to explain our header: “We are a recognized political party in the state of Wisconsin, who proudly proclaims Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.”

He said between that and what he read in our “Who We Are” section that it sounded to him as though our party wanted a theocracy.

No matter what explanations I gave to prove that we Constitutionalists oppose theocratic rule, he continued challenging me, acting as though he “caught me” somehow.  Remember, according to the left, when Christians express their faith in the public arena, we are “imposing our faith” and attempting to “establish a religion” in America. What this man saw as something horrible, openly proclaiming Jesus as Lord and Savior, CPoW members and candidates wear as a badge of honor.  We don’t get embarrassed and try and silence our members when they talk about Jesus Christ like other parties do.

At the debate forum, there wasn’t enough time to fully expand on my and the Constitution Party’s opposition to theocracy, but now I can.

1)  CPoW and the national Constitution Party supported a republican form of government from our very beginning as the U.S. Taxpayer’s Party.  Our party literature, chairman’s letters, public speeches and our candidates support the original intent of the Founding Fathers including Article 4, Section 4 of the Constitution which states, “The United States shall guarantee to every state in this Union a republican form of government.”  Not a theocratic form of government, not a democracy but a republican government!

Part of being a Christian is having free will.  Forcing people to convert to someone else’s faith under pain of death proves nothing.  Give that person a choice and see if he comes to that faith willingly.  God gives each of us the choice to worship Him and repent.  I have always said faith is not real if it’s forced and that’s what a theocracy does, forces faith and worship.

Jesus said in Revelation 3:20, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock.  If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in and dine with him, and he with Me.”  Jesus didn’t say, “If you don’t open your door, I will enter in anyway and force My will on you.”

If we were trying to impose a theocracy, no references to God or Jesus would be anywhere on our web site or literature.  We would hide our true intentions until we seized power.  CPoW opposes religious tests for office.  Theocrats support religious tests, don’t they?

2)  Whose religion will be chosen as the official one?  Lutheran, Catholic, Baptist, Methodist? The Christian faith has many different religious denominations and divisions within those (Lutherans have the Missouri, Wisconsin, ELCA Synods to name a few).   How far could a theocracy get in America?  No matter which denomination was declared the official Christian one, all the other denominations would oppose that denomination in favor of theirs.

To all the secular humanists who are screaming, “Separation of church and state!” anytime practicing Christians, especially ones in public life, invoke the name of Jesus Christ in public or dare to stand as lesser magistrates against ungodly, unconstitutional impositions on religious liberty, they have no clue how religious liberty has protected them.  Yes, protected them!  Are Muslims being forced to join a church?  Are atheists being detained?  Are Buddhists silenced?     If we were a theocracy like under Henry the VIII and his Church of England or nations under Sharia Law today, these secular humanists would know it.

This brings me to the final insurmountable obstacle against a theocracy succeeding in America…

3)  The American people will never stand for it!  It’s easy to impose oppression and tyranny on a people who have never known anything else.  Good luck trying to force theocratic rule on a people who grew up with a Bill of Rights, rule of law, and churches of numerous denominations peppered throughout the countryside.

First you would have to suppress all churches, mosques and synagogues in and install government-sanctioned churches in their place.  The real threat to American religious liberty is government intrusion into the churches, not the churches being anywhere near taking over the levers of government.

Let’s say the God-deniers and secularists are right and the Constitution Party is trying to impose a theocracy.  Let’s say a future Constitution Party majority in the House and Senate and our party’s president declared a Christian theocracy and banned all expressions of faith outside of Christianity.  Now no one can criticize the teachings of Christianity, using the name of God or Jesus Christ in vain would mean instant death and everyone is now required to attend church every Sunday.  The American citizenry would righteously rise up with arms and cast our party’s elected leaders and officers in prison for treason as they should.  Our party would be dismantled.

The secularist leftists will never stop trying to convince ignorant Americans that those whose faith in Jesus Christ extends from the churches and homes into their businesses and political life are the single greatest threat America faces and they must be driven from the public square.  We Constitutionalists aren’t guaranteed victory if we stand against these ungodly forces.  Our only guarantee in the fight for the Moral Order is defeat if we don’t fight back at all.

Andrew Zuelke is the State Chairman of the Constitution Party of Wisconsin and the Dodge/Fond du Lac CPoW Counties Chairman. The Constitution Party of Wisconsin is a totally pro-life, liberty and traditional marriage/values party whose goal is to get Godly constitutionally-minded people into office at the local, state and federal levels.  CPoW officers and candidates will never compromise on either God’s word or the Constitution.

Faces of the Constitution Party: Sam Pew

Interview by Peter Gemma, Co-Editor of The American Constitutionist

sam pew Sam Pew is the Director of Sales and Marketing for a company specializing in consumer-packaged products primarily grocery and frozen food products.  He serves as 2nd Vice Chairman of the Utah Constitution Party and Western States Area Co-Chairman.

Question: Sam, how did you come to the Constitution Party for a political home?

Answer: I was involved in the GOP as a County Delegate for several years. Like many who leave the GOP, it was more like the GOP left me because of their inability to stand for anything.  As the Republicans moved further to the center on social, financial, and moral issues, the further to the right I moved.  Once they no longer protected and aggressively encouraged need for God in our lives, I knew it was time to leave. The GOP seems to feel no different about the Constitution regarding its origin of being God given verses Government given, than the Democratic Party. The GOP seems to look for ways to work around the Constitution verses supporting its percepts straight up and taking action accordingly.  The final straw for me was being convinced that many of our Congressional and Senatorial representatives in Utah (Senator Mike Less excluded), are not supportive of Utah and traditional US values and morals.  My vote could no longer be given to the “lessor of evils.”  I came to the conclusion that a true vote of conscience is never a wasted vote.

I would say that I likely spent a couple of years doing my research, attending meetings and communicating with party members. Then I started listening to YouTube speeches by party leadership like Howard Phillips, Jim Clymer, and other speakers at conventions.  I must say that Jim Noorlander’s run for Congress a few years ago was instructional and the YouTube information still on the web from that run also influenced me considerably.  I also listened to Scott Bradley a time or two and started to be moved to give serious consideration of making a change.

Again, it was the consistency in message, effort and commitment that I felt was more concrete than the GOP.  Our party membership in general sticks to the Seven Pillars of the party in their messages and doesn’t change the message.  I love attending meetings that start with a simple prayer of thanks and help for inspiration to God before meetings and feel that in our meetings those prayers are really heart felt and are expressed by those of commitment.

Q: Is the party on the ballot?  How does it maintain ballot access?

A: The Constitution Party of Utah is has been on the ballot for a number of years.  That’s done by petition. Currently we maintain ballet position with one or more statewide candidates who garner least two percent or more of the total votes cast for all candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives in the same regular general election.  Most of this has been done by following the example of our former State Chairman Frank Fluckiger and never taking our eye off the prize.  However, we are now in the middle of legal action now against the State of Utah who legislative branch has passed a new state law that could make future elections, caucuses, primary elections, and party recognition/membership a completely different ball game.  Due to confidentially issues of the case I can’t comment more on this.

Q: In your work as a party leader, what are the positive — and negative — lessons you’ve learned.

A: Early planning on issues and workable solutions to those issues, strategic election plans and execution is paramount.  Taking your eyes off the prize can cause stumbles and fumbles.

Q: I understand the Utah Constitution Party has a long success record.

A: I would estimate our growth to be up approximately 10% – 14% compared to last year.  This is primarily due to dissatisfied Republicans who have finally seen through the GOP, realizing that they are not that much different than the Democratic Party.

We simply invite, invite, and then invite folks, friends, and family to participate, encourage them to read and study our consistent message.

Q: What do you suggest a new affiliate do to gain a foothold and grow in size?

A: Although we are working with an entire volunteer organization, the key is to run it as much like a business as possible. Elect good leadership and the leaders need to do (or take action) by example not just direction.  We all need to hold each other accountable for commitments we make to the organization.  In Utah we inspect what we expect from our local leaders monthly and where/when possible we assist and support them in their activities. I know that as a part of our state leadership this year I have logged between 8.5K and 10K miles on my car and given many nights to the party, out town many times which requires overnight stays.  It involves sacrifices of time and resources.  Often when speaking to our groups I talk about “What are you willing to give to the party and is success and survival.”  I point out what we are asked to give is nowhere close to what our founders and past generations gave to build this great country.  This generally will then tie that into “What are you doing to leave our country better for your children and grandchildren.”  Sometimes many of today’s hot topic issues fly at too high of an altitude for general discussion based on intimate knowledge vs. a perceived knowledge of those issues. However, personal feelings of love of God, safety, rights and privileges are things that we can all feel personally every day and are emotions that folks will respond to favorably too.  Love of God, Country and Family sounds trite, but I have found that it can generally be explained easily.

CP Commentary: An Appeal to Heaven

by Robert W. Peck, State Chairman, Constitution Party of Washington 

An Appeal to Heaven flag \

I recently read the story of the “An Appeal to Heaven” flag, its history and the important philosophical concept behind it. Most of us don’t even know there was such a flag and even fewer understand its significance. You really cannot correctly understand our nation’s history, or our Declaration of Independence, without understanding the concept behind “An Appeal to Heaven.”

The concept comes from English philosopher, John Locke. In his Second Treatise of Government, Locke explains that once all human avenues for seeking justice (judges, legislatures, executives, etc), or relief from tyranny, have been exhausted, only an appeal to Heaven remains. At that point, men become justified to seek relief by their own actions, appealing to the God of Heaven to sustain their endeavor, as no earthly mediator is left to them.

“…where the body of the people, or any single man, is deprived of their right, or is under the exercise of a power without right, and have no appeal on earth, then they have a liberty to appeal to heaven, whenever they judge the cause of sufficient moment.” (John Locke)

This was Locke’s justification for the deposing of King James II, and as students of Locke, this principle was at the heart of the American founders Declaration of Independence.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States… And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.”

There is of course much more to the story of the Appeal to Heaven flag including the Iroquois Confederation, why a pine tree was used on the flag and George Washington’s private navy. Please do yourself a big favor and read the whole story here.

Like our nation’s founders, many in the Christian-conservative-right are feeling like they too are suffering a long train of abuses at the hands of their government. In the wake of the recent Supreme Court opinion on marriage that tramples religious liberty and violates freedom of conscience, many may feel America has returned to the place of its founding with only an appeal to Heaven left to us.

While appealing to Heaven through prayer is always a right thing to do, the appeal to Heaven taught by John Locke, and acted upon by the American founders by declaring independence from Great Britain, is a matter of political action that looks to the God of Heaven for favor upon that action. To be justified, and to qualify for divine favor, that action must be predicated upon two things.

1.  No appeal on earth remaining to the aggrieved within the established political systems.

2.  Rectitude of intentions on the part of those taking action to obtain relief.

No Appeal on Earth

Before declaring their independence, the American Founders had exhausted every means available to right the wrongs being done to them by King George III. One of the great complaints leading up to the break with Britain was taxation without representation in Parliament.

Today, we have a vote and an active voice in choosing our representatives for everything from city council, to county sheriff, state representative, state supreme court justices, congress, president and many more offices. We may not like the representatives that “we the people” have picked and often deplore what they do, but we elect them. Therefore, we cannot say that we have “no appeal on earth” as we have an appeal every 2, 4 or 6 years, depending on the office. Therefore, it cannot be justified at this time to go outside of, or seek the overthrow of, “the forms of government to which we are accustomed.”

However, like our nation’s founders, it is incumbent upon us to vigorously pursue every avenue available for the righting of wrongs as we appeal to Heaven for favor upon our endeavors. But remember, the founders taught us that our appeal to Heaven needs to predicated upon the rectitude of our intentions.

Rectitude of Intentions

The word “rectitude” isn’t something you hear in daily conversation. It’s one of those old English words that we kind of gloss over and act like we get it.

According to Webster’s Dictionary of 1828, the first truly American dictionary and the one understood to most accurately convey the meanings intended by the American founders, rectitude is:


REC’TITUDE, noun [Latin rectus, right, straight.]

In morality, rightness of principle or practice; uprightness of mind; exact conformity to truth, or to the rules prescribed for moral conduct, either by divine or human laws. rectitude of mind is the disposition to act in conformity to any known standard of right, truth or justice; rectitude of conduct is the actual conformity to such standard. Perfect rectitude belongs only to the Supreme Being. The more nearly therectitude of men approaches to the standard of the divine law, the more exalted and dignified is their character. Want of rectitude is not only sinful, but debasing.

There is a sublimity in conscious rectitude – in comparison with which the treasures of earth are not worth naming.

We can see from this definition that true rectitude “belongs only to the Supreme Being,” with its ultimate standard determined by “divine law.” Only the Creator of man gets to determine the standard of what is right for man. Therefore, we cannot appeal to Heaven for favor on our endeavors except to the degree our endeavors conform to God’s standards of truth, justice, uprightness and sound principles.

In politics, as in all matters, our natural reaction is to assume that our side is right, if only because the guy on the radio is telling us the other side is wrong. That’s a trap ancient Israel fell into regularly. They would call on God to deliver them from their enemies on the grounds that “we’re God’s people and the other guys are evil Philistines, so we must be right.” Yet in nearly every case, God had to begin by showing His people where they had departed from His law (His standard) and had unwittingly adopted the practices, and even the false gods, of the heathen nations around them.

Christians and conservatives of today are inclined to view democrats as the “new Philistines” that we need God to deliver us from. However, as measured by the party that Christians most commonly support, and whose candidates would never win a single office without their support, the Christian-conservative-right and the Republican Party wield far more influence in America than do democrats. A majority of the U.S. Supreme Court are republican appointees. The U.S. House, which holds the nation’s purse strings and determines what federal activities will or will not take place, has been under republican control 16 of the last 20 years. More than three times as many states are under complete republican control (24) than democrat (7). If America and its union states are going in the wrong direction, the Republican Party bears more blame than the democratic, as it holds more positions of power.

It’s tempting to blame the republican office holders saying, “they’re kowtowing to the party bosses and power brokers, they’re putting political expediency ahead of principle, they’re compromising.” The truth is that we, the Christian-conservative-right, placed them into power and they are a reflection of us. We bowed to the influence of pundits and talking heads who told us who can and cannot win, we placed political expediency and a win at the ballot box ahead of principle, and we compromised when we voted for those candidates.

It would appear that God’s people in America today have fallen into the same trap as Israel of old. We are calling on God to deliver us with the assumption that our side is in the right. However, our political priests have lead us into compromise, taught us to worship at the alters of political expediency and to give the virtue of our vote to candidates who cast off constitutional restraint and serve the gods of statism.

An Appeal to Heaven

It is indeed time for an appeal to Heaven, but not the appeal of casting off, or going outside of, the established systems of government to take matters into our own hands, seeing that we yet have the ballot box left to us. Neither is it the appeal of prayer alone that takes no action, or that merely asks God to bless a continuation of compromise or corrupted political associations.

It is time for an appeal to Heaven that begins by asking the just Judge of the universe to search us to see if there be any wicked ways of compromise in us, and to lead us back to His divine standards of truth, justice, uprightness and sound principles.

It is time for an appeal to Heaven which, with firm resolve, places sound principle ahead of political expediency, partisan politics and the councils of pundits, and which pledges its support to every candidate and cause that soundly upholds biblical values, constitutional limits on government, and the principles of liberty without regard for partisan affiliation or whether anyone says they can win.

It is time for an appeal to Heaven which, with equally firm resolve, pledges to withhold support from every candidate, cause, party or other political entity that shrinks back from the biblical and constitutional standards.

It is time for an appeal to Heaven which, like our nation’s founders did, steps out where human might alone cannot sustain and divine providence becomes our only hope as we “Appeal to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions.”
