It shouldn’t be surprising given the political climate in this state, but South Dakota now has its own Constitution Party. I learned all I really want to know from the national organization’s mission statement. One of its main goals is to “restore American jurisprudence to its original Biblical common-law foundations.” Gee, I don’t remember there being a hornbook on Biblical common law in law school. Oh that’s right. That’s the problem with this country.
If that isn’t enough to scare you away, here is their claim as to what distinguishes them from the other political parties in this country:
The Constitution Party is the only party which is completely pro-life, anti-homosexual rights, pro-American sovereignty, anti-globalist, anti-free trade, anti-deindustrialization, anti-unchecked immigration, pro-second amendment, and against the constantly increasing expansion of unlawful police laws, in favor of a strong national defense and opposed to unconstitutional interventionism.
The sad thing is that while they claim to have 300 members, under that criteria most of this state’s legislature and statewide Republican candidates/officeholders would qualify as members.
