Was the government shutdown a charade that accomplished nothing for America? Why would a candidate run if he couldn’t win? Why should anyone run? Where is the country headed? These are questions we will answer with Michael Peroutka, former presidential candidate.

Michael Anthony Peroutka (born 1952) is a Maryland lawyer, the founder of the Institute on the Constitution. He once held a position in the United States Department of Health and Human Services and was the Constitution Party candidate for president in 2004. He is co-host of The American View radio program.

    They will be severely hampered until/unless they figure out how they can get on in California for president, which I don’t see happening.

    Did they do something to piss off the AIP, or did the AIP just go rogue? Was it all over Alan Keyes?

    Paulie, the best chances of the CP getting a 2016 Presidential candidate on the ballot in California is via write-in status.

    Getting on the ballot or even taking back the AIP is nothing but a laughable pipe dream.

    Yet with what has recently transpired in New Mexico and Ohio- the CP has more urgent matters to deal with.

    They need to ditch Virgil too, he is dragging them down. They would do better with Castle. Goode is an embarrasment as a politician, and I’m not even going to get into his character as a person (although Andy might).

    The link takes us to a web site that states:

    “The American View” of government is that there is a God, the God of the Bible, our rights come from Him, and the purpose of civil government is to secure our rights.

    This is what the Decleration of Independence and the words, We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness . . .

    This truth has been reaffirmed again and again from President George Washington and his Thanksgiving proclamation, James Madison in his words and writings about the rights of man, President Abraham Lincoln and the Gettysburg Address, President Dwight Eisenhower and the Pledge of Allegiance, President John F Kennedy and his speech to the nation on civil rights, President Ronald Reagan and his speech in Berlin ( . . . tear down this wall.), and many other statesmen since the founding of our nation. We might not agree with this truth (I do) but our disagreement can not change this truth.

    The main issue for me was the lockout of Michael Peroutka, at Concord, New Hampshire in 2006. This issue was not directly about Alan Keyes. Alan Keyes had 80%
    of the California delegation to Kansas City, which included James King.

    Even the Clymer family was backing Keyes over Baldwin at Kansas City.

    Don Grundmann who won the California Primary had only one vote, viz. his own. He could not even find a second in the California Delegation.

    The issue related to the events at Kansas City, The Arizona Party Chairman took all
    the Committee Spots at the beginning of the Convention. Since, she was not pro-life
    the majority of the California State Central Committee wanted nothing to do with her.

    To Paulie, I personally like Mr. Goode, He is a fine man. I do not agree with him
    on some major issues, but he is a credit to what every party he is in.

    What sunk Mr. Goode with the California Delegates to the State Convention in 2012
    was his views on Social Security.

    I was the elected head of the California Delegation at the Kansas City in 2008.
    Deemer wanted to control the delegation with the Arizona Chairperson. They lost!

    You mean proxy votes that you controlled personally..

    Even the Clymer family was backing Keyes over Baldwin at Kansas City.

    Really? I’m surprised if that’s true.

    Don Grundmann who won the California Primary had only one vote, viz. his own. He could not even find a second in the California Delegation.

    Grundmann is a deeply troubled individual.

    To Paulie, I personally like Mr. Goode, He is a fine man.

    That couldn’t be less true. He could start by paying his debts, and I mean that literally.

    Paul said: “‘Even the Clymer family was backing Keyes over Baldwin at Kansas City.’

    Really? I’m surprised if that’s true.”

    I’m pretty sure that this is not true.

    Paul said: “‘
    To Paulie, I personally like Mr. Goode, He is a fine man.’

    That couldn’t be less true. He could start by paying his debts, and I mean that literally.”

    I know for sure that this is not true, as Virgil Goode knowingly ripped off several petition circulators who gathered signatures to place him on the ballot last year.

    On the proxy votes, the answer is some to me and others. I voted for the entire delegation, present and by proxy. James King was a proxy vote to me.

    Paulie, Proxy voting has always been allowed within the AIP. Do you have a problem
    with Proxy voting and why? The voting rules allow proxy vote. Wm Shearer always
    carried Proxies with him. The problem with proxies was his daughter thought she
    got her father’s proxies after he died. She did not.
