Election Reform

Comments Off on Election Reform

The Constitution Party of Texas is working to bring our government back into the hands of the people. Our nation was founded on the principle that the government is of, by and for the people. We do not have a King, Emperor or other form of dictatorship, our legislature is not made up of Lords and Ladies as is the House of Lords in England. Instead it is made up of people who are supposed to be citizen legislators.

In other words, the Senators and Representatives in Washington D. C. are not above us. They should know they are responsible to the constituents who voted them in to office. Instead today we have professional politicians who think they are entitled to the perks of the office they hold, until such time as they die in office or decide to retire. Some of these people have been in office for 40, 50 or more years.

This is a part of our party platform: “The Constitution Party seeks the restoration of an electoral process which is controlled at the state and local levels and is beyond manipulation by federal judges and bureaucrats. The federal government has unconstitutionally and unwisely preempted control in matters of district boundaries, electoral procedures, and campaign activities.

The Voting Rights Act should be repealed. The Federal Election Campaign Act, including its 1974 amendments, and the Federal Election Commission should be abolished.

Each citizen should have the right to seek public office in accordance with the qualifications set forth in the federal and state constitutions. Additional restrictions and obligations governing candidate eligibility and campaign procedures unconstitutionally burden the fairness and accountability of our political system.

We urge an end to electronic or mechanical voting processes, and urge a return to the manual counting process overseen by, and accountable to, voters resident in each precinct where the votes are cast.”

Our Republican and Democrat politicians do not want this to happen. It might mean they will have to actually work for the people who elect them to office. As many of you probably understand, once a politician is elected to office, he/she immediately begins working toward getting re-elected to that office. They raise money and ignore their duty to the people who voted them in to office. It is high time we had some real representation in the U. S. Congress, instead of lip service politicians who will tell you what you want to hear and then go back to working on their next election cycle.

As you think about the next election, and realize that your congressperson has not worked in your best interest, come and visit us, we are The Constitution Party and we need your help to set things right again in this nation in which we live.
