Constitution Party of West Virginia Endorses Roy Moore for U. S. Senate

Judge-Roy-Moore-050b23The Constitution Party of West Virginia has unanimously endorsed Roy Moore for U.S. Senate in the state of Alabama. We recognize that it is of extreme importance that government representatives be knowledgeable of the history and founding principles that established the United States. Moore has proven that he does.  Roy Moore is an experienced and proven practitioner, skilled in the Rule of Law. Roy Moore has shown himself to be an uncompromising foe of the entrenched globalist-serving establishment.

There is a disturbing trend of unfounded and prejudicial media vilification aimed at the political assassination of Roy Moore which has not been proven. On the contrary, there is evidence showing that the accusations being make against Roy Moore are false.

Roy Moore was the clear choice of the people of Alabama to represent them in United States Senate against Luther Strange. It was also clear that the GOP leadership did not like this decision. As such, it was the opinion of both the West Virginia and National Constitution Parties that we should support the people of Alabama’s right to decide the outcome of the upcoming election for U. S. Senate .

Therefore the Constitution Party of West Virginia unanimously endorses Roy Moore in his bid to represent the People of America as well as the good people of Alabama. Additionally, the Constitution Party of West Virginia applauds the decision of the Executive Committee of the Constitution Party  to support Roy Moore. The state party extends an appeal that all like-minded and concerned people of West Virginia join with us in a united effort to place Roy Moore in the United States Senate.

Phil Hudok Announces Run for Randolph Co. Sheriff

The Constitution PaPhil Hudok - Candidaterty of W.Va.’s 2016 candidate for Governor, Phil Hudok, has announced that he will run for Randoph Co. Sheriff in the next election.

Phil is a proven champion on Constitutional /Rule of Law issues. He has been involved in successful court battles including numerous cases in the West Virginia Supreme Court and a case in Federal Court. He believes that the sheriff’s duty as the supreme law enforcement officer in the county is to see that the law is upheld, and applied fairly.

Phil has remarked, that the sheriff “takes an oath to uphold the state constitution. The West Virginia Constitution, while not perfect, has some real protections and important principles that must be followed. All law enforcement actions in Randolph County are subject to and under the jurisdiction of the Sheriff’s Office which serves the people that elect the Randolph County Sheriff. While good government is essential, government is only meant to do what individuals, families, churches, and other non-governmental institutions cannot provide. Proper government is about good stewardship and public safety while protecting private property and individual rights. As Ronald Reagan rightly warned, ‘The nine most dangerous words in the English language are, I’m from the government and I’m here to help.”

Over the years, Phil has had numerous positions of service and responsibility. He served as officer in the Tygarts Valley Lions Club, Randolph County Education Association, Randolph County Tax Study, and Constitution Party of West Virginia. He was a national presenter of outstanding teaching practices for the Southern Regional Education Board in Nashville, TN and was teacher of the Year of Tygarts Valley Junior/Senior High School. After earning a BA in Physics at West Liberty State College, where he was Student Personnel Manager of ARA Food Service, he obtained a Masters in Educational Computing from Charleston University. Since 1972, Phil has owned and operated Century Photo, a photo/video service and media production company.

Phil says, “Good government is everyone’s responsibility. Do your part, expect and demand good honest representative government. Become informed, encouraged and vote.”

Resolution in Support of a No-Tax- Increase State Budget

The Constitution Party of West Virginia has approved a resolution in support of a balanced budget with no tax increases.
Whereas, the State of West Virginia has created the Municipal Home Rule Pilot Program allowing selected cities to replace all or part of their B &O tax with a sales tax of no more than 1%,

Whereas, this new tax is currently being imposed on consumers in 28 municipalities in W.Va.,

Whereas, the Legislature is currently considering a bill, S.B. 441, to expand the program to all municipalities in W.Va.,

Whereas, H.B. 4009 of 2016, the Letting Our Counties Act Locally Act, permits counties, with the approval of voters, to impose a 1% sales tax for road construction,

Whereas, these recently created sales taxes combined with the current 6% sales tax total a potential tax of 8% in some areas of the State,

Whereas, the Legislature is currently considering S.B. 477 which would dramatically increase DMV fees,

And, whereas, the people of West Virginia are among the poorest of any state in the Nation,

The Constitution Party of West Virginia demands that the Legislature and Governor produce a balanced budget for the next fiscal year that includes no tax increases. We oppose any attempt by subterfuge to increase taxes under the guise of fee increases or any attempt to allow local governments to further increase taxes. Furthermore, we oppose any effort to place the people of West Virginia under debt bondage in order to maintain current spending levels which should be cut to match expected revenues.

The Government of West Virginia should conduct itself in the same way that the citizens of this state are forced to do when confronted with reduced income – cut spending.

Original Intent Definition of Natural Born Citizen and Presidential Eligibility Resolution Introduced

At its March 26, 2015 weekly Executive Committee meeting, the CPWVa adopted the following important resolution on the original intent definition of a natural born citizen:

Whereas, Article II, Section, 1, Clause 5 of the Constitution states “No Person except a natural born Citizen, or
a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of
President…;” and

Whereas, no person alive today or in the future was a citizen in the year 1788 (at the time of the adoption of
the Constitution), and thus the Constitution makes a clear distinction between a natural born citizen and a
citizen who is not natural born; and

Whereas, Section 1 of the 14th Amendment only defines citizenship in general without making any distinction
between natural or non-natural born; and

Whereas, Article I, Section 8, Clause 10 of the Constitution states “The Congress shall have Power…To define
and punish Piracies and Felonies committed on the high Seas, and Offenses against the Law of Nations,” The
Law of Nations being a set of books authored by the Swiss writer Emmerich de Vattel and is thus incorporated
into the framework of the Constitution; and

Whereas, The Law of Nations was originally published (in the French language) in 1758, predating the drafting
of the Constitution by twenty-nine years. This important work was studied by our founders, particularly as
evidenced by George Washington’s two-hundred and twelve year overdue copy from the New York Society
Library (replaced by the Mount Vernon Estate, May 19, 2010), and defines the principles of the law of nature
applied to the conduct and affairs of nations and sovereigns. Its clear reference in the United States
Constitution is proof positive of our Framers’ desire that it be a primary source of understanding; and

Whereas, Book I of The Law of Nations, Chapter XIX, § 212 (Joseph Chitty numbering) – “Citizens and natives”
reads: ‘The citizens are the members of the civil society; bound to this society by certain duties, and subject to
its authority, they equally participate in its advantages. The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in
the country, of parents who are citizens. As the society cannot exist and perpetuate itself otherwise than by
the children of the citizens, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all
their rights. The society is supposed to desire this, in consequence of what it owes to its own preservation; and
it is presumed, as matter of course, that each citizen, on entering into society, reserves to his children the right
of becoming members of it. The country of the fathers is therefore that of the children; and these become
true citizens merely by their tacit consent. We shall soon see whether, on their coming to the years of
discretion, they may renounce their right, and what they owe to the society in which they were born. I say,
that, in order to be of the country, it is necessary that a person be born of a father who is a citizen; for, if he is
born there of a foreigner, it will be only the place of his birth, and not his country;’ and

Whereas, Vattel’s definition of a natural born citizen makes it clear that he or she is one whose parents were
citizens at the time of birth, and especially whose father was a citizen. § 213 and § 215 of this work reiterate
that “children follow the condition of their fathers;” and

Whereas, U.S. Senate Resolution 511 of April 30, 2008 declared Panamanian-born presidential candidate John
McCain to be a natural born citizen based upon the U.S. citizenship of his father and thus confirms Vattel’s
definition in modern times; and

Whereas, in human genetics, as designed by our Creator, only the male carries the y-chromosome thus
determining the gender of his offspring and exactly matching the natural law of heredity as defined by Vattel; and
Whereas, the Constitution for the United States of America is a legal document, the definitions of all words therein must be held as those that its authors understood at the time of its writing. Only the mechanisms outlined in Article V of that document can be used to legally alter or change its meaning; new dictionaries, opinions of legal scholars, and court decisions notwithstanding; therefore be it

Resolved, that it is the Constitution Party’s position that the original intent definition of natural born citizenship is thus the citizenship of a person’s father, and

Therefore Be It Further Resolved, that to be eligible for the office of United States President, a candidate’s father must have been an American citizen at the time of his or her birth.

Community Decency Platform Updated

In response to today’s misguided Supreme Court decision, the Executive Committee of the Constitution Party of West Virginia, in meeting duly assembled, has made the following revisions (as indicated below in bold text) to its platform position on “Community Decency.”

The US Supreme Court was wrong in 1857 in the Dred Scott Case. The same court was wrong in 1893 in Plessy v. Fergusson. And they were wrong in 1973 with Roe v. Wade. They are wrong today. Their word is not the last word, God’s Word is: “Because a sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.” – Ecclesiastes 8:11

Community Decency – revised
John Adams said “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” To which his cousin Sam added, “While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but once they lose their virtue they will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader,” and “if we are universally vicious and debauched in our manners, though the form of our Constitution carries the face of the most exalted freedom, we shall in reality be the most abject slaves.” These sentiments echo those of over a century earlier when John Milton, in his classic novel, Paradise Lost, narrated man’s fall from Grace and subsequent need to be obedient to Gods laws of Holy Scripture. “So many and so various laws are giv’n; So many laws argue so many sins,” said Milton.

What, then, is public virtue? It is clear from the writings of our founders that they intended temperance within the bounds of natural law in the establishment of a republican form of government rather than a theocracy. The most promising method of securing a virtuous and morally stable people is to elect virtuous leaders. As such, the CPWVa maintains that the State and local governments have the right and legitimate authority to restrict and prohibit obscenity and obscene material in any format and local establishments in accordance with community standards of morality and decency. To wit, we specifically address community decency in the areas of pornography, homosexuality, and gambling.

Pornography and homosexuality are a distortion of the true nature of sex created by God for the procreative union between one man and one woman in the holy bonds of matrimony. They are destructive elements of society resulting in significant and real emotional, physical, spiritual and financial costs to individuals, families and communities. Until 1973, the American Psychiatric Association correctly regarded homosexuality as a mental disorder, and thus schools and the military have every right to prohibit persons with this condition from their ranks. The same is true for the gender confused. It is abominable that homosexual radicals, aided and abetted by the corporate media, promote this sinful behavior as normal and harmless through the perversion of our language by calling it “gay” and using the rainbow as their symbol. This is nothing more than deceptive trickery to corrupt the innocent.

We reject the notion that sodomites and sexual offenders are deserving of legal favor or special protection, and affirm the rights of states and localities to proscribe offensive sexual behavior. We oppose all efforts to impose a new sexual legal order through the federal court system. We stand against so-called “sexual orientation” and “hate crime” statutes that attempt to legitimize inappropriate sexual behavior and to stifle public resistance to its expression. We oppose government funding of “partner” benefits for unmarried individuals. We oppose any legal recognition of homosexual unions and seek to prohibit homosexuals from adopting children. Legal marriage is between one man and one woman.

While we fully respect the constitutionally protected right to privacy of consenting adults, all sexually suggestive material must be kept as far away and out of reach from children as possible. This includes the location of men’s clubs, library and store books, and the content of public airwaves. Likewise, while we fully respect the constitutionally protected right to freedom of speech, consideration must be given to undesired exposure to racy public advertising and offensive or suggestive attire and behavior. This includes the appearance of road signs, promiscuous clothing styles and slogans, vehicle decorations, profanity, graffiti, and general blight.

Gambling promotes an increase in crime, destruction of family values, and a decline in the moral fiber of our country. We are opposed to government sponsorship, involvement in, or promotion of gambling in the name of economic development or for any other purpose.

Happy Constitution Day!

On this day in 1787 in Philadelphia, the Constitution for the united States of America was signed by delegates from twelve states (Rhode Island and Providence Plantations did not send any delegates). Written on four pages plus the transmittal page (finally on display at the National Archives), it is concise, straightforward, and easy to read by the common man. Read it today. Read it any day. Get a pocket Constitution and Declaration of Independence to keep it handy. Also get a copy of the Federalist Letters which is a compilation of newspaper articles written in defense of our Constitution (by founders John Jay, Alexander Hamilton, and James Madison), as well as the Anti Federalist Letters which challenged it. Many in-depth study courses are available for those interested in exploring the nuances of this founding document. We suggest that you explore this as a family or group project with like-minded friends and neighbors. Make every day Constitution Day!

  • Happy West Virginia Day

    The United States Constitution says a new state must gain approval from the original state, which never occurred in the case of West Virginia. Since the Restored Government was considered the legal government of Virginia, it granted permission to itself on May 13, 1862, to form the state of West Virginia.

    When Congress addressed the West Virginia statehood bill, Massachusetts Senator Charles Sumner demanded an emancipation clause to prevent the creation of another slave state. Restored Government Senator Carlile wanted a statewide election to decide the issue. Finally, a compromise between Senator Willey and Committee on Territories Chairman Benjamin Wade of Ohio, determined that, after July 4, 1863, all slaves in West Virginia over twenty-one years of age would be freed. Likewise, younger slaves would receive their freedom upon reaching the age of twenty-one. The Willey Amendment prohibited some slavery but it permitted the ownership of slaves under the age of twenty-one.

    The United States Senate rejected a statehood bill proposed by Carlile which did not contain the Willey Amendment and then, on July 14, 1862, approved a statehood proposal which included the Willey Amendment. Carlile’s vote against the latter bill made him a traitor in the eyes of many West Virginians and he was never again elected to political office. On December 10, 1862, the House of Representatives passed the act. On December 31, President Lincoln signed the bill into law, approving the creation of West Virginia as a state loyal to the Union without abolishing slavery. The next step was to put the statehood issue to a vote by West Virginia’s citizens. Lincoln may have had his own reasons for creating the new state, knowing he could count on West Virginia’s support in the 1864 presidential election. On March 26, 1863, the citizens of the fifty counties approved the statehood bill, including the Willey Amendment, and on June 20, the state of West Virginia was officially created.

    In May 1863, the Constitutional Union party nominated Arthur I. Boreman to run for governor. Boreman ran unopposed, winning the election to become the first governor of West Virginia. The Restored Government of Virginia, with Pierpont continuing as governor, moved to Alexandria, Virginia and eventually to Richmond following the war. Pierpont ordered an election to allow the residents of Jefferson and Berkeley counties to determine whether their counties should be located in West Virginia or Virginia. Union troops were stationed outside polling places to intimidate those who might vote for Virginia. Despite local support for Virginia, residents who actually filled out ballots voted overwhelmingly to place both counties in West Virginia. In 1865, Pierpont’s government challenged the legality of West Virginia statehood. In 1871, the United States Supreme Court awarded the counties of Jefferson and Berkeley to West Virginia.

    The new state of West Virginia had sectional divisions of its own. While there was widespread support for statehood, public demands for the separation from Virginia came primarily from cities, namely Wheeling and Parkersburg. As a growing industrial region with improved transportation, northwestern Virginia businesses desired a more independent role in government. With the extension of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad to Wheeling in 1853 and Parkersburg in 1857, the northwest depended much less on Richmond and eastern Virginia markets.
