We, the members of the Constitution Party of Ohio, gratefully acknowledge our Creator as the Preserver and Ruler of the universe. We appeal to Him for aid, comfort, guidance and the protection of His Divine Providence as we work to restore and preserve these United States.
The Constitution of the United States provides that "no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States." The Constitution Party of Ohio supports the original intent of this language.
The U.S. Constitution established a Republic rooted in Biblical principles of governance administered by representatives who are constitutionally elected by the citizens. In such a Republic all Life, Liberty, and Property are protected as unalienable rights from our Creator. The goal of the Constitution Party is to restore American jurisprudence to its original foundations and to limit the federal and state governments to their proper Constitutional boundaries. Therefore, the Constitution Party of Ohio calls on all those who love liberty and value their inherent rights, to join with us as we work to restore our state’s and our nation’s governments to our nation’s original constitutional principles.
As such, we affirm the principles of inherent individual rights upon which these United States of America were founded:
In addition to the State Party Platform herein which is intended to be specific to the issues of the State of Ohio, the Constitution Party of Ohio affirms its general agreement and support of all the individual items within the national Constitution Party Platform, 2012, the Preamble excepted.
