    Isn’t this the party that was formerly known as the New American Independent Party?

    This is what third parties are actually good for! Presenting a mixture of ideas from the two major parties, and not presenting any radical solutions, big change, or actually giving a real challenge to the status-qou. Your preservation of the Church of Holy Militarism is most honorable, with the photo of the Prophet of that Church- Mr. Lincoln- as well as your obvious support for the priesthood. While I may not agree with your doctrines, it is good to see you are not a libertarian God-hater like Mary Ruwart or Alan Keyes. Keep up the good work defending the status-qou from the worst possible place to do so- outside the two party system.

    Just what are you expecting, Don? Could you be a bit more clear ………….

    [Lake: would not the more appropriate interrogatory be: what was Republican Phillips expecting? He is in love with much of current GOP philosophy and, in addition, the original GOP was a third party, making Lincoln (in 1860) and Lincoln (and Anderson, Union Party, in 1864) a two time third party VICTOR. And Red Phillips’ problem is ……….. ]

    Don, what are you babbling about? I have been very clear about where I stand re. third parties. I don’t begrudge conservatives working within the Republican Party in the primaries, but think they should vote third party if the Republicans fail to nominate an adequate candidate which is almost always. So some conservatives need to work in third parties on a permanent basis so they will be around to run general election candidates. What about that is hard to understand? Since when have I been “in love with much of current GOP philosophy?” Is current GOP philosophy non-interventionist? Is it Constitutionalist?

    The reason I don’t like Lincoln is because I believe in the right of secession and think Lincoln acted tyrannically to suppress it. Is that current GOP philosophy?

    8 rp, I seriously doubt this candidate was thinking about “secession” when he added the image of Lincoln to his website. For most, the Lincoln myth involves the freeing of slaves, which happened under Lincoln.

    Yes, there’s more to the story than that, but I seriously doubt the current GOP or Ds think much about the “issue” one way or the other.

    My sense is that Civil War revisionism is a fringe issue.

    Darryl W. Perry, false prophet and apostate – Mary Ruwart does hate God because she openly disobeys the commands of the Bible and relishes in doing so. The Holy Word of God is extremely clear on this in 1 Corinthians 14:34-35, “Let the women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but let them be in subjection, as also saith the law.And if they would learn anything, let them ask their own husbands at home: for it is shameful for a woman to speak in the church.” Women are not to speak in public, let alone run for office over men! She obviously is an extreme feminist and probably has lesbian “sex” to spite the wrath of God!

    “Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves.” Numbers 31:17-18
