From Cody Quirk at American Third Party Report:
John Richard (J.R.) Myers lives in Alaska and works as a behavioral health professional. He’s on the ballot as a candidate for the American Independent Party in the California June 7th primary and as a write-in for the Independent Party of Oregon for President of the United States. He’s exploring write-in ballot access for 10 states. Failing to achieve the Constitution Party’s nomination in Salt Lake City last month, he continues with his candidacy because he has a message that they aren’t necessarily supporting.
JF: Tell me what your message is.
JRM: In general, I do support a return to our Judeo-Christian values and the rule of law based upon our Constitution and Declaration of Independence. In particular, I oppose unauthorized wars which are usurping Congress’s authority by the executive and damaging a lot of our relationships around the world. As part of the ongoing wars, I would also include the war on drugs, which I believe has created a prison industrial complex that is a self-sustaining entity that is destroying lives, and families and communities around the nation. It’s certainly a threat to our Constitution. It’s a war against our liberties, basically. As all the unauthorized wars are, war is against human rights and individual dignity and liberty. I oppose those things vehemently, which would not necessarily be supported by the National Constitution Party, at least the end of the war on drugs. I’m not a prohibitionist. I think that alcohol required a limit to the Constitution for prohibition, then so too any other substances. I believe that substance use is a right reserved unto the people and to the states. That’s a big difference there…
