From the minutes of last Monday’s Operating Committee comes the text of the following resolution to be submitted to the America First National Committee:
Whereas the America First Party is not running a presidential candidate in 2008 because this would be a poor use of resources for our developing party; and,
Whereas many voters would nevertheless like to have guidance on how to vote in the general presidential election; and,
Whereas both Democrat and Republican presidential nominees are greatly at odds with the America First Party’s principles in areas of foreign policy, trade, immigration, and fiscal spending; and,
Whereas it is important that voters not waste their vote by voting for Democrat and Republican presidential candidates who are poised to violate the basic requirements of the oath of office, and who will, if they pursue their stated policy objectives, continue the process of overturning our constitutional government; and,
Whereas there are two presidential candidates which have achieved ballot access in enough states to have a theoretical possibility of winning the presidential election, and which hold positions similar but not identical to those of the America First Party;
Therefore, be it resolved by the America First National Committee:
That voters be encouraged to vote for either Chuck Baldwin or Bob Barr for President in November.

The America First Party said in a statement that the “Supreme Court’s recent decision in District of Columbia vs. Heller is a welcome respite from the deluge of judicial activism seen from courts in recent times.
