Constitution Party of Georgia State Convention is Today and Saturday

Sorry for the late notice, but I let this sneak up on me.

The Georgia CP is having its state convention today and tomorrow. An impressive line up of speakers will be there including talk show host Steve Deace, talk show host and former Congressional candidate Jody Hice, and Pastor Joe Morecraft.

I didn’t get to go today due to work, but I plan to be there tomorrow so I’ll come back with a report.

    Steve Deace is supporting Newt Gingrich, and Dr. Joe Morecraft’s ideology is more theocratic then it is constitutionalist.

    Personally, if I lived in Georgia, I wouldn’t be a CP member- not with the way Ricardo Davis & company runs their affiliate.

    GA has grown to 16 EC votes for the next 3 (POTUS) cycles tied with MI for 8th nationally. No ballot access there means “bad news” for any TP. Until the CP of GA reaches enough strength for BA they will continue as a flyweight in local politics.

    Anyone have a clue as to who might be their P/VP noms this year. Goode must have got cold feet. So to speak….
    (or perhaps he finally got around to reading the platform-lol)

    Darrell Castle who was the VP nominee in 2008 is probably in the mix. I have heard him speak and read his articles and he is quite impressive. I may not agree with all his positions but he communicates well . Obviously he is not a celebrity but a Tennessee attorney and since the nominating convention is in Nashville he may have the edge. I am just guessing, however, since I have no ties to the CP.

    At the personal request of friends in the Constitution Party, I noticed the California Secretary of State on January 13, 2012, that
    Virgil Good was going on the AIP primary ballot
    for California on June 5, 2012. Yet on February
    6, 2012, California Secretary of State Debra Bowen rejected Virgil Goode with no explanation
    as to why the exclusion.

    We will fill this week a writ of mandate in the
    Sacramento Superior Court against Secretary of
    State Debra Bowen.

    Sincerely, Mark Seidenberg, Chairman, American Independent Party of California

    No big fan of Mister Goode or National CP, I still thank you for challenging Mrs Bowen.

    California Peace and Freedom Party is in a similar position and action, via Phil Sawyer.

    I will repost your missive on WeThePeopleCoalition_California and ReformTalk ………..

    New Restrictions proposed in Alaska.

    Alaska Division of Elections,

    It appears that the following proposal will severely restrict political groups from becoming political parties. Since it takes a great amount of work and time to obtain U.S. DOJ approval a well as approval from the Alaska Division of Elections, this would only give a small window of perhaps a few months to meet the requirements.

    … Is this saying that every year, political groups will need to refile? Is it stating that a political group once recognized has only one year to obtain political party status?
    Is this saying that the political groups such as the Alaska Constitution Party will no longer be listed on voter registration and ballot forms?

    Since it appears that this is a restriction to organizing political groups and parties, The Alaska Constitution Party would like to go on record in opposition to this cynical proposal. We do not believe this change is in the best interests of the people of Alaska.

    Sincerely,

    J.R.Myers, Chairman

    Alaska Constitution Party

    6 AAC 25.145(b) is amended to read:

    (b) Forms used to register a voter will be reviewed at least once a year. If at the time of the review, a group that has applied for recognized political party status or obtained recognized political party status [HAS BEEN OBTAINED BY A POLITICAL GROUP, THE GROUP’S NAME] will be printed on the form [WITH OTHER RECOGNIZED POLITICAL PARTIES]. If a political party no longer qualifies as a recognized political party as defined in AS 15.80.010 when the forms are reprinted, the party’s name will be removed from the form at the time of the review unless the items required in 6 AAC 25.140(b) and (c) are submitted.

    Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to go Saturday so I won’t have anything more to report.

    Just my 2 cents. I think Deace and Hice are high profile by CP standards but I did think their inclusion was curious since Deace endorsed someone other than Paul in the GOP primary and Hice was recently a GOP candidate.

    For what its worth, Deace did support an independent candidate for governor in 2010 here in Iowa. And he did have a regular weekly segment of his show with Michael Peroutka. If he’s going towards the CP, then that’s a step in the right direction.

    His stance is hard to figure out, he’ll rail against the GOP one day then back Newt the next. He’ll headline a Ron Paul event one day then bash him on-air the next. At my website, I call him Liberty’s Best Frenemy.

    Either way, looking at the personal nature of the Georgia CP -is it any wonder that they’re a much smaller and less influential organization in their state compared to IAP in Nevada?
