Good Resource for Constitutionists

Fellow Constitution Party Leaders:

You know that as Constitutionists we are regularly faced with well intentioned, self identified ‘conservative’ people who will say things like “I read an article by Newt Gingrich and he sounds really conservative,” or from those who see through Newt and Mitt, I’m now starting to get “what about Santorum, I understand he’s quite conservative, or at least he has good family values – doesn’t he?”

If you’re like me, you don’t have the time or mental faculty to study and remember every fact, figure and bit of information about the Republican candidates so as to be able to correct and inform your friends when they say things like these. That’s why I’m always looking for articles or videos that do the job for me. To that end, I’d like to refer you to the following series of articles that were brought to my attention today. I’m sure there are other good articles out there that expose the current crop of neocons, feel free to share them with your fellow Constitution Party leaders as well.

For a more concise overview of the situation, you might refer people to the following Constitutional grade assigned to the candidates. This is based on Vision Forum Ministries grading of the candidates after each of several debates held in the summer and fall of 2011. I added together the grades for each candidate from several debates, then assigned an average score.

  • Ron Paul:                     B
  • Rick Santorum:           F
  • Mitt Romney:              F
  • Newt Gingrich:           F

To prove that the game was not rigged and a score other than “F” was possible, here are the candidates who have dropped out.

  • Rick Perry:                      D
  • Michele Bachmann:      C
  • John Huntsman:           D-
  • Herman Cain:                D

For those who bring up Ron Paul and ask why you’re not supporting him, you might want to ask them to read this article.
