A "None of the Above" option on state an national ballots and primaries as way to tell parties to put forth good candidates instead of lesser evils. Candidates who lose to none of the above disqualified from race. No poll coming since I want your overall thoughts on this rather than just a vote.

I know run-offs as a result will be problematic but I think worth it.


I'll shut up and kick the ball into your court for thoughts.

Gambling

Gambling promotes an increase in crime, destruction of family values, and a decline in the moral fiber of our country. We are opposed to government sponsorship, involvement in, or promotion of gambling, such as lotteries, or subsidization of Native American casinos in the name of economic development. We call for the repeal of federal legislation that usurps state and local authority regarding authorization and regulation of tribal casinos in the states.

Pornography

Pornograp­hy, at best, is a distortion of the true nature of sex created by God for the procreative union between one man and one woman in the holy bonds of matrimony, and at worst, is a destructive element of society resulting in significant and real emotional, physical, spiritual and financial costs to individuals, families and communities. We call on our local, state and federal governments to uphold our cherished First Amendment right to free speech by vigorously enforcing our laws against obscenity to maintain a degree of separation between that which is truly speech and that which only seeks to distort and destroy.

With the advent of the Internet and the benevolent neglect of the previous administrations, the pornography industry enjoyed uninhibited growth and expansion until the point today that we live in a sex-saturated society where almost nothing remains untainted by its perversion. While we believe in the responsibility of the individual and corporate entities to regulate themselves, we also believe that our collective representative body we call government plays a vital role in establishing and maintaining the highest level of decency in our community standards.

Foreign Involvement

The Constitution Party has consistently opposed American involvement in conflicts in the Middle East, Africa, Asia, Europe, and Central and South America. The United States has no interest in these areas which would justify the sacrifice of Americans on foreign battlefields - nor is our country properly cast as a merchant of death in international arms races.

We propose that the United States


Education

All teaching is related to basic assumptions about God and man. Education as a whole, therefore, cannot be separated from religious faith. The law of our Creator assigns the authority and responsibility of educating children to their parents. Education should be free from all federal government subsidies, including vouchers, tax incentives, and loans, except with respect to veterans.



I'm a Libertarian this is a party of religous crackpots.

You gotta be kidding me. Hold your nose, gag, and vote McCain if that choice comes up.

The last time some of you guys "protested" and voted for that clown Perot, we ended up with Bubba Clinton and his Psychadelic Sex Circus for 8 years.


Bottom line: no matter what else happens, McCain is a war hero and Hitlery is, well, Hitlery.

Fuck McCain.

Yes he endured years of captivity, it doesn't mean his shit is any less smelling than the rest of us.

He is a mellow, republican version of Murtha, somewhat detached from the truth, but everyone is afraid to bash him because he is a vet.

If they run Hitlery, then RNC should pick Rice to go against her. Strong on all the right areas, a woman to counter Hitlery, black to one up Hitlery, good on gun issues based on interviews and hardcore on asshats we are fighting.

Condi 08.

Dream on. Condi has never served an elected or executive office. The only people hitlery appeals to are people who would vote dem anyway. hitlary running as pres. candidate would insure a republican victory. I know people who have always voted democrat and wouldn't vote for hitlery.

ETA: I also don't think the Republicans will run mccain. Too many people don't like him, and he doesn't represent the majority of the Republican party.

Given a binary choice between those two and NotA, I choose NotA. There is no way in hell I am going to vote for one of the heads on a two-headed coin.

Bush and Kerry may have been on the same coin, but at least you could tell there was a difference.
