Super Tuesday Results Presage a Nation Heading for Disaster
Boulder, CO -- The results of Super Tuesday show that both major parties are once again on course to promote continued national chaos -- by advancing candidates who are hostile to basic requirements of the U.S. Constitution, and by extension, to basic requirements of the oath of office. Although competency and decency lead an individual to respect his solemn obligations, which an oath of office clearly constitutes, none of the leading candidates appears to have sufficient competency and/or decency to conform to basic and easily recognizable requirements of constitutional law.
The front-running candidates support the Iraq War, notwithstanding the obvious unconstitutionality of the Iraqi war resolution, which illegally delegated to the president the power to make the determination to go to war. Even though they may make minor criticisms of present "Free Trade" agreements, all have indicated support for the clearly illegal delegations of U.S. trade authority in the style of the WTO and NAFTA trade regimes -- trade regulation is the exclusive nondelegable constitutional prerogative of Congress. All support a domestic role for the federal government which is not constrained by the enumerated powers specified in the Constitution, and which usurps the rights of the states and the people, in contravention of the Tenth Amendment.
"Americans who value prosperity and freedom need to support the basis for these benefits," said AFP National Chairman Jonathan Hill, "both in and out of the ballot box. If both major parties are not supportive of this task, then the practical response of truly patriotic Americans should be to cultivate better candidates who will uncompromisingly defend the Constitution, and to build a party to provide the support to get them elected."
AFP Press Secretary JC Schweingrouber stated, "The two major parties are placing our nation and liberties in danger by nominating these poor quality candidates. As long as we elect people who do not respect our Constitution, we should not count on having the benefits of the Bill of Rights. Americans should change direction before it is too late."
The focus of the America First Party is to put America and all Americans First. Our goal is to elect candidates who will restore morality, ethics, and common sense to public service, and return our Constitution to its proper place in our Republic.
