A Brief History of The Constitution Party of Ohio
The Constitution Party of Ohio became affiliated with the National Party on April 20, 2007. That following March,
the party held its first state meeting to set goals for the first year of development. In early September of that same year, through
litigation the Constitution Party of Ohio was recognized by the Secretary of State as a minor political party with full ballot access. Robert M. Owens, the Constitution Party of Ohio chairman ran for Attorney General
in the November 2008 special election as an independent candidate and received 245,611 votes,
the most successful independent race for statewide office in Ohio history.
JOIN US in our work to forge a rebirth of liberty!
Most Americans want the same thing: Peace, Prosperity and Freedom. For these ends our Founding Fathers created a Constitutional Republic, which for the first 100 years prospered like no other nation in history. But for the last century, America has grown weary from war, debt and tyranny. Our nation's own history has verified what our founding fathers keenly understood: that as government grows and becomes more centralized, the liberty of the people inevitably recedes. Keeping government local and limited is the cornerstone doctrine of American government. Our nation's founding philosophy of liberty is that all men are created equal, endowed by God with unalienable rights. And that government is limited to only those functions which secure these God-given rights of the people.The Constitution is the contract between "We the people" and
our elected representatives. The Constitution is the civil law that citizens and government alike are subject to and bound by. Hence the term: "Law of the Land." The rule book for how government should form and function is written in the Constitution. A constitutionally-elected officeholder promises to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States. When we elect them to public office, we should expect them to uphold their oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.
Adherence to the Constitution protects, not grants, our:
- freedom of speech and assembly; freedom of worship;
- right to keep and bear arms;
- right to a trial by jury;
- right to be secure in our own
homes against police overreach;
- right to own property;
- right to not be deprived of life
or property without due process of law;
- right to face our accusers;
- right to keep government
local and limited.
Most of the social, political, and economical problems we face, stem from failure to adhere to U.S. and state constitutions. The political formula contained in the U.S. Constitution made America the most prosperous nation in the history of the world. The consequence of abandoning the Law of the Land is that now America is the largest debtor nation in the history of the world. Not to mention government intrusion into every area of life and political corruption at all levels of government. If more Americans would hold their representatives accountable to the oath to the Constitution it would bring a new birth of liberty to America the likes of which has not been seen since 1776. Political parties are meant to offer alternative philosophies, priorities, agendas, and strategies to achieve the purpose
of government as outlined in the Constitution. Both major political parties have become more similar than different and neither follow the Constitution
as laid out by our Founding Fathers. Both have lost the ability to govern with a clear and consistent moral compass, and thus our country has not been
well served.The Constitution Party is the only party dedicated to restoring, preserving and protecting American liberty as envisioned and designed by our Founding Fathers and embodied in the U.S. and state constitutions. The Constitution Party was formed to provide the people with a real principled political avenue to make their vote count, to provide political expression of their beliefs and values in elections, and in implementing public policy. The Constitution Party is a true political party and not a PAC (Political Action Committee). While we may choose to not run candidates against some more Constitutionally conservative candidates from other parties, and while we welcome the endorsements of CP candidates by PACs that subscribe in general to our Party position and platform, the CP is not a PAC and does not endorse candidates of other political parties.
