Constitution Party: A Must Read Victory Report

Constitution Party chairman Frank Fluckiger sent the following statement today to email subscribers providing a sample from the paid membership subscription newsletter Victory Report, linking to downloads of the George Orwell novels 1984 and Animal Farm, as well as a brief update on ballot access: 

As many of you know, Charles Kraut is the author of the monthly subscription newsletter, The Howard Phillips Legacy Report. In the latest issue, What Happens When Truth Vanishes, Charles offers timely insights, presents challenging questions, and provides practical solutions for living in a world where truth is often absent.

I was so impressed by the contents of this issue that I wanted all of our members to receive a sample of this Victory Reportso you can judge for yourself the value of becoming a member of the Howard Phillips Legacy Society.

Memberships start at an affordable price of $7.00 a month. By becoming a member, you not only receive the benefit of timely information, but you provide monthly support that is critical to the party’s growth, plus members receive additional resources when you join. You can enroll here.

In his piece, Charles references several must-read books. Paul Venable, our webmaster, informed me that two of these books, 1984 and Animal Farm, are available for your reading at these links:

I strongly encourage you to download these books. Please read and share them with family members and friends. Educating others is critical to saving our Republic.

In other news, we are within 1,000 signatures of being ballot-qualified in Alaska. We are very close to reaching our goal in Tennessee. We are also gathering signatures in the state of New Jersey. Any donations you make toward these efforts will be deeply appreciated.

Sincerely,

National Chairman
Constitution Party

    Meanwhile, because of your wonderful leadership, state after state is either disaffiliating or putting a different presidential nominee on their ballot. Don Blankenship won’t even be on the ballot in his own state of West Virginia. Some victory. Thanks, Frank.

    “In other news, we are within 1,000 signatures of being ballot-qualified in Alaska. We are very close to reaching our goal in Tennessee. We are also gathering signatures in the state of New Jersey.”

    So other than Alaska, only the two easiest states – 275 and 800 valid signatures. Pretty pathetic. And A3PR is reporting a bunch of their state parties are disaffiliating. Sounds like they are going down the tubes.

    And only “gathering” in NJ, not even close to 800. “Very close” to 275 valid – that’s a “victory” report, LOL.

    RE: disaffiliations – Oregon had left something like ten or twelve years ago. Idaho left about five years ago. Alaska and Virginia left last year. South Dakota left after an attempted coup attempt, or so I hear. Illinois, Indiana, and Texas all left within the past month (articles and discussion on American Third Party Report). New Mexico and one of the Carolinas, can’t remember which, are said to be running a different presidential candidate. Word through the grapevine is that at least three other states are holding disaffiliation discussions. And that’s not counting state organizations which have just plain folded; Montana, and North Dakota for example. Then there are the dozen states which never had any organization to begin with and their national executive committee has absolutely no interest in helping plant those seeds. Sad.

    How many state parties and state governments have actually agreed to put Blankenship on the ballot? Are all of the CP affiliates which are not putting him on going with Tittle, or different candidates in different states or what?

    According to Politics1, the Idaho, Oregon, Alaska, Virginia, South Dakota, Texas, Illinois, and Indiana chapters of the Constitution Party have all disaffiliated from the national party. The Alabama, Mississippi, and West Virginia chapters are reportedly considering disaffiliating as well. The North Carolina and South Carolina affiliates are currently mulling whether to nominate a candidate other than the Constitution Party’s 2020 presidential nominee, businessman Don Blankenship. Politics1 believes some of these parties may ultimately give their nominations to the Myers/Lusk ticket.

    I think you missed NM in that list, which I think you were the one who first brought it to our attention here when it happened.

    This recently updates map http://www.constitutionparty.com/elections/ballot-access/ shows the states where they claim they are already on, but those include several of the disaffiliated or disaffiliating states above. It also shows a different and larger number of states where they are petitioning, but of course that doesn’t tell us how actively. However, Tennessee, one of the few states mentioned in the email, is shown as nit yet started.

    They were on in more states in 2016: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Constitution_Party_(United_States)#Ballot_access

    The 24 states not listed did not send any delegates to the convention: Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine,, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, and Vermont.

    In 2016, these 21 states did not send any delegates: Alabama, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, and Wisconsin.

    In 2012, these fifteen states did not send any delegates: Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Delaware, Hawaii, Idaho, Kentucky, Maine, Montana, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, Rhode Island, and Wisconsin.

    In 2008, these eleven states had no delegates: Alabama, Connecticut, Hawaii, Indiana, Michigan, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming.

    This was before the recent and ongoing round of disaffiliations.

    Are the Carolinas parties affiliated? You said “The North Carolina and South Carolina affiliates are currently mulling whether to nominate a candidate other than the Constitution Party’s 2020 presidential nominee, businessman Don Blankenship. “

  10. Jeff Becker

    There has never been any bonafide party organization in Connecticut, Delaware, Kansas, Maine, Nebraska, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, or Vermont. Any convention delegates ever “sent” by those states were shams and just one of the grievances listed by disaffiliating states.

  11. Jeff Becker

    @ Paulie – something is seriously wrong with Mr. Winger’s delegate vote chart. It has Florida giving all 29 votes to Sam Tittle on the first vote and then all 29 to Blankenship on the 2nd. Hmmm, how much did he pay them?

  12. William Saturn Post author

    AFAIK they are still affiliated with the national party but are thinking about doing what NM did and nominate a different ticket than national.

    @Paulie

    “If I am not mistaken they do proxy voting, so that may have been in reality just one person.”–that is correct.

    And that is why what Mr. Becker says is also true. This was “one of the grievances listed by disaffiliating states.”

    CP-Idaho took (as still does) the position that when actual voters do cast ballots in primary, these in effect become live absentee ballots for the purpose of nomination. These live absentee ballots cannot be disfranchised by a single person whom the national party may style as a “delegate” from a state which does not have an actual organized or operational party functioning under their state code and fully reporting to their respective secretary of state.

    When this occurs (and it has repeatedly) these so-called state delegations can produce nothing in evidence to indicate that they in fact are representative of their statewide constituents. They merely hold a single illegitimate proxy. Parliamentary rules are replete with admonitions against this practice.

    @Becker: “Some victory. Thanks, Frank.”

    An appropriate comparative example in history–Lord Cornwallis’ tactical “victory” at Guilford Courthouse in 1781.

    Upon the reported casualties, opposition British Whig statesman Charles James Fox said of the good lord’s victory: “Another such victory would ruin the British army.”

    And it did.
