Constitution Party 2014 U.S. Senate candidate Phil Hudok gave presentations to the Randolph County Commission and Board of Education regarding the proper interpretation and need for our Second Amendment. These actions have now resulted in a formal resolution by the Commission to members of Congress. Below is a link to an article in the InterMountain about this. THANK YOU PHIL !!
Here is an excerpt:
Randolph County Commissioners decided to take a stand on the 2nd Amendment Thursday, passing a resolution supporting the right to “keep and bear arms.” The measure will be sent to elected officials.
Commission President Chris See said the resolution was created after resident Phil Hudok spoke to the commission about gun control measures.
“We came up with this resolution and we will send it to Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.,) and Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.),” See said before reading the resolution.
The resolution states that it is the right of the people to “keep and bear arms for the defense of life, liberty and property,” and that the right is regarded as an “inalienable right by the people of Randolph County.”

Whereas, we seek candidates who are committed to the Party’s platform,
And, whereas we are interested in attracting candidates who are committed to the long term growth of the Party,
Resolved, therefore, that we the members of the Constitution Party of West Virginia direct our delegates to the National Convention to support only candidates for President who pledge their unqualified endorsement of the Seven Principles of the Party platform, Read more
Appropriately enough, Phil Hudok received seventy six (76) official write-in votes in this year’s special election for governor. However, there were 425 total write-in votes recorded ( as shown by the Secretary of State’s report http://apps.sos.wv.gov/elections/results/statesummary.aspx ), so why were 268 not counted? This MUST BE INVESTIGATED!
A sincere thank you to everyone who voted for Phil on October 4th.
Phil is from Huttonsville near Elkins in Randolph County and was the CP’s ballot-qualified candidate for U.S. Congress, 2nd District last year. More information about Phil and his candidacy can be found on his campaign website at www.hudok.com.

Pickens School Teacher Phil Hudok has concerns that the federal government is trying to take over the public education system.
“This is public education right here,” Hudok told the Randolph County Board of Education on Monday. “I am speaking for teachers, the public and parents.”
Hudok cited several news articles he said lead him to believe the federal government is overstepping its bounds to controlling public education. He cited one news story in which Gov. Joe Manchin said he would not rule out calling lawmakers into special session to ensure the state qualifies for federal funding.
“It says our state is looking for a way to get money that was taken from the people,” Hudok said. “The federal government should have no control in public education.”
Hudok also cited another news article published on cnsnews.com titled “Obama’s Safe Schools Czar Advocated ‘Queering in Elementary Education.’” Hudok read a portion of the article and said Obama’s appointed Safe Schools Czar Kevin Jennings wrote the forward to a book that includes teaching sexuality to grade school children.
“I don’t like to talk about this stuff,” Hudok said. “This is a book our safe school czar wrote a forward for.”
Hudok said he would bring more information to the board at a later date.
“I think what I have given you is evidence this is happening,” he said.
The board also heard a report from Randolph County Schools Finance Director Brad Smith concerning the 2009 audit report.
He said the auditors had no findings after completing their audit.
The board took action on several items including the transfer/sale of property known as the Laurel Hill School lot. Randolph County Superintendent of Schools Dr. James Phares said the company building the windmills near Laurel Mountain discovered a deed that conveys property to the board for construction of a school. Phares recommended that the board initiate a quitclaim process on the property. This will give 30 days public notice to ensure no one has a claim to the property. After the 30-day period, the school system will auction the property.

As Uncle Sam tightens his wallet and lets fewer dollars trickle down to the states for highways, Constitution Party gubernatorial hopeful Butch Paugh sees a golden opportunity for West Virginia to turn free enterprise loose and spawn a healthier business climate.
That done, the write-in candidate theorizes, more businesses will invest huge sums in the state, creating more jobs and, in turn, expanding a tax base so that adequate dollars flow into the coffers of the financially strapped Division of Highways.
“We can build the tax base without increasing taxes if we would let the people produce more and not punish them for being a West Virginia citizen,” the Nettie resident told The Register-Herald editorial board.
“Businesses don’t like it here because of the tax structure. You can’t tax people into prosperity. That does not work. When you’re already on the bottom, kicking them again doesn’t work.”
Paugh says the state needs to take a penetrating and comprehensive look at how neighboring Virginia operates with lower taxes and a larger tax base. Read more
On November 2, 2004, Robert Miller, an activist in the Constitution Party, was elected County Surveyor of Grant County, West Virginia. He received ten write-in votes. No one else was running for the post.
Candidate says GOP has ‘forfeited any claim on conservative support’
In California, it’s known as the American Independent Party. In Missouri, it’s the U.S. Taxpayers Party, and in Arkansas, the Conservative Party. But by whatever name, supporters of Howard Phillips for president believe they are the party of America’s founding fathers.Officially recognized as the Constitution Party’s presidential nominee, Phillips will appear on ballots in 42 states this November. He was first nominated in 1992 as the U.S. Taxpayer Party’s presidential candidate in the party’s inaugural convention and again in 1996. Then at the 1999 Labor Day weekend convention, delegates re-identified themselves as the “Constitution Party” and again nominated their founder. Now in his third presidential candidacy, Phillips explained his party’s philosophy.
“We have to have a vision of victory,” he said. “We have to have a plan of winning. Ours is very simple: It is to reduce the federal government to the powers delegated to it by the states and enumerated in the complete text of the Constitution.”
Asked to explain the differences between Constitutionalists and other political parties, the candidate said the differences can be boiled down to each party’s “source of authority.”
