Iraq and the Constitution Party

John Lofton's interview with Jim Gilchrist, founder of the "Minuteman Project" and potential presidential candidate for the Constitution Party, continues here:


Nothing could make plainer the fact that this potential candidate does not understand the Constitution as it was written in 1787, nor the Constitution as it now exists (i.e., as a piece of paper, a symbol, useful for political manipulation and demagoguery, but having no real function in the government of a nation).

The same thing could be said about other candidates in the Constitution Party who support the War in Iraq. Unfortunately, it might well be said even of Libertarian Party candidates who support "regime change" in Iraq.
