Lancaster, Pa/ September 17, 2007- The Constitution Party, the fastest-growing and largest third party based on voter registration (Ballot Access News) will nominate a presidential candidate at its convention in Kansas City, MO, April 22-27, 2008.
“There is little appreciable difference between the two parties that control government. Voters seeking a return to limited, constitutional government would not have a choice in November if one of the so-called ‘front runners’ receives the Republican nomination. With the exception of Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) – who has been ignored by his party -, we have ‘Tweedle Dee’ and ‘Tweedle Dum’ candidates once again,” Clymer added.
A recent Zogby Poll shows Americans are leaning toward third party options.
The selection of Kansas City for the nominating convention was made in light of the Constitution Party’s stated opposition to the proposed NAFTA Superhighway /Railway which is planned to stretch from Mexico to Canada through a SmartPort based in Kansas City.
The Kansas City SmartPort website notes: ’’Kansas City offers the opportunity for sealed cargo… to travel to Mexican…cities… streamlin(ing) shipments from Asia (to) cut … labor costs…”
“The United States does not need more cheap imports from China or more longshoremen out of work”, Clymer pointed out.
Among the convention speakers the Constitution Party anticipates inviting is Party member and New York Times best-selling author Jerome Corsi, Ph.D. Dr. Corsi, who is a frequent speaker at Constitution Party events, would likely speak about his latest best-seller The Late, Great USA-the Coming Merger with Mexico and Canada. Corsi regularly speaks and writes about the potentially devastating effects of the NAFTA Superhighway and the push to merge the sovereign nations of North America into one.
The Constitution Party convention announcement comes in the wake of the nation’s largest Hispanic rights group, La Raza, warning it may cancel its 2009 convention in Kansas City. The cancellation was threatened because a Kansas City park board member belongs to the border-security group The Minuteman Civil Defense Corps.
“In keeping with the Constitution Party’s stated support for secure borders and the dedicated work of the Minutemen (Read more here) to enforce laws ignored by our government, we look forward to choosing a presidential candidate in Kansas City”, Clymer stated.
