This is a bit dated (6 July 10), but I don’t think it was posted here at the time. Kevin is a former Constitution Party candidate for the House of Representatives in Massachusetts. He now resides in Wisconsin.
Dear Constitution Party Members,
This letter comes after much prayer, thought and discussion. I have decided that it would be best to conduct my political activity within the Republican Party. This was not an easy decision, but it is one on which I am confident. Let me reasons for leaving the party.
(1) For quite some time, I have been growing disenchanted with the Constitution Party. The fact of the matter is, I no longer see the rationale of placing much time, effort and money into a party that will constantly and consistently lose in the end. In the summer of 2008, I can’t think how much time I spent traveling all over Massachusetts dropping off and collecting signatures for Chuck Baldwin. While it was nice seeing the sights, was all that effort worth the less than one percent that Pastor Baldwin was able achieve. I also think of my own campaign for Congress three years ago. Several months of my life were spent in an effort that gave me less than half of one percent of the over all vote. While this race taught me a lot about the political system and gave me an experience I am now able to pass on to my students, but overall it really did little to help the party or the state of Massachusetts. The party has been in existence since 1992. What signs of growth or accomplishment can we really show to justify the party’s existence? What is the point in exerting all this effort to accomplish nothing? What really bothers me is that some in the party actually take pride in losing. They proclaim their moral and ideological superiority as the reason for their defeat. At least I didn’t compromise… But, the problem is, you didn’t do anything else either…
