Today the people of our nation face possibly the greatest test of courage yet faced by Americans since our founders fought for and won our freedoms from the oppressive governance of England. Recently I viewed in-depth, the articles of the Declaration of Independence and was astounded to discover that almost every abuse of freedom listed in that declaration are prevalent in our government today.

Evidence proves the complete dissatisfaction and lack of trust by the people for both the Democratic and Republican parties. Under their watch we have seen a consistent undermining of Constitutional government. This has been accomplished by creating and passing legislation that serves only their interest and not the best interest of the country. Under their watch, judges are selected based on how favorably they rule regarding corporate interests instead of the justice our founders envisioned. The officials they appoint are rewarded with our tax dollars based on previous political support and not on ability or loyalty to their sworn oath.

I, like almost every American, have hopes that the officials we place in the role of governance this election cycle will represent the wishes of the people but, based on the past several decades experience, that is unlikely.

The Constitution Party is looking for people dedicated to returning our nation to the U.S. Constitutional rule of law our founders intended. That ideal includes encouraging and rewarding morality. Immorality has never and will never preserve or promote prosperity; by its very nature it cannot.

The groundwork has been laid for us by the founding fathers and its track record is a proven one. If you wish to participate in reestablishing our state and country back to our founder’s principles and providing opportunity to future generations, consider becoming a point of contact, county chairman, or other role. Maybe a particular issue stirs a passion in you; we could utilize focused participants as subject matter experts to inform others. Will you join us in this battle?

Please help build our membership and support your future prosperity through participation and financial contributions.

Yours in Liberty
Randall C. Stufflebeam

PREAMBLE

We, the members of the Constitution Party of Illinois, gratefully acknowledge the sovereignty of the Lord God, as Creator, Preserver and Ruler of the universe and the sovereign state of Illinois. That we may govern with wisdom and true justice, we do appeal to Him for aid, comfort, guidance and the protection of His Divine Providence.

I. Sanctity of Life

We recognize life as a gift of God. The first duty of government is to prevent the shedding of innocent blood. We affirm the legal person-hood of the pre-born, from conception until natural death to include the infirm, and terminally ill without exception.

II. Agriculture

We affirm the right of farmers to sell their products on their own property or in farmers’ markets, as long as they are in compliance with local health codes that are free from excessive and burdensome fees and regulations and equitably enforced.

III. Alternative Energy

We support individual’s right to choose and use any form of energy free from governmental subsidies or excessive fees and legislation.

IV. Education

We recognize that it is the right and duty of parents to direct the education of their children to include opting their child out of events and materials that the parent decides is inappropriate. Further, we affirm the parent’s right to choose the schooling appropriate for their children, to include home schooling, private/parochial schools, public schools or chartered schools.

  1. We oppose members of teachers unions serving on school boards.
  2. We call for the elimination of compulsory attendance laws and call for the chartering of reform schools.
  3. We see that local school boards should only be answerable to taxpayers and parents, and not court lawyers, unions, or the legislature.
  4. We affirm English to be taught as the primary language.
  5. We are opposed to the principle of tenure, in that it gives a protected status that other occupations do not enjoy and precludes the ability to hold teachers accountable. We further object to pay and benefits being based on longevity, but fully support performance based pay and incentives.

V. Election Reform

Ballot Access - It is the right of every citizen to have free and equal access to the ballot.

Campaign Financing - We call for campaign finance reform where only those who are eligible to vote for a candidate can financially support that candidate. In all cases, we demand transparency in all campaign finance issues. No outside undue influence.

Gerrymandering - We reject the idea of gerrymandering.

VI. Family Values

We believe that the basic unit of society is the family. We affirm marriage as between one man and one woman. As such, we oppose state recognition of any other union outside the marriage of one man and one woman.

According to the U.S Constitution, Article IV, Section 2, the federal government, including the judiciary, has no authority over the issue. Therefore, we oppose a federal marriage amendment.
