“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord” (Ps 33:12, KJV) Please join the Christian Party of America’s monthly Town Hall Conference Call to discuss current political issues with like-minded Christians. The Town Hall conference call is the second Thursday of each month at 8:30 PM est. (7:30 PM central). Don Watson, National Vice-Chairman and North Carolina State Chairman will lead the discussion on what can be done to address the concerns we all share for the status of our country’s civil government. Luis Chiang, National Advisory Board Member and Director of the Prayer Team, will lead us in prayer to close the call. Guest speakers will be present at some of the calls to provide input on political issues. The Christian Party of America’s nationwide Conference Calls are a great opportunity to connect with other Christian Party supporters as we try to make a difference in this country. So sign on with us for the conference call to discuss issues and contribute your thoughts about what we can be doing politically. Our Town Hall conference calls are open to the public and are for all of us who are interested in the Christian Party of America. It is an easy-access way to share ideas and learn more about what is going on around the country with the Christian Party of America. Hope you can make it! There is no extra charge to participate other than the usual charges by your phone plan for a long distance call. "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." (2 Chronicles 7:14 KJV)

January 2012 Constitutional Candidate Forum-Raleigh

(From left to right: Diane Rufino (constitutional attorney from Greenville), Mike Beitler (candidate for North Carolina Secretary of State), Nelson Dollar (North Carolina State Representative), and Glen Bradley (North Carolina State Representative and candidate for State Senate).

The purpose of the Constitutional Candidate Forum is to promote the election of constitutionally-minded candidates to political party offices and civil government positions at the city, county, state, and even the federal level. In addition, this group will support elected officials and patriotic organizations that are working to restore constitutional governance. The passage of constitutionally-based legislation will also be a primary focus of this group. This group is pan-partisan in that it encourages the participation of patriotic constitutionalists from all political parties. If you are a prospective candidate or patriotic group and would like more information about the vetting process to be endorsed by the Constitutional Candidate Forum, please contact the Forum Director, Don Watson at dwatson83@att.net

Candidates and organizations of all political affiliations can be considered for endorsement and will be vetted according to the 3-C Paradigm.

On Saturday, I had the pleasure of attending the first Constitutional Candidate Forum here in Raleigh. It is one of a series (http://constitutionalistgatheringplace.com/schedule.html) cosponsored by Founders Truth (http://www.founderstruth.org/), the Frederick Douglas Foundation, and the Constitutionalist Gathering Place (http://constitutionalistgatheringplace.com/). Bill LuMaye of News Radio 680 WPTF (http://www.wptf.com/showdj.asp?DJID=23698) was the MC.

Don Watson, the organizer along with Greg Brannon of Founders Truth, said the event and the attendees “laid down the gauntlet for the candidate vetting process.” That included candidates at the local, state, and federal levels.

“If you did not attend it was your loss. However, you will have an opportunity as more Forums are being arranged for at least one a month for the next few months,” Watson shared.

Richmond County will host one on February 18; Greenville is March 10th; Wake County again March 31st & April 28th; Mecklenburg County in May; and the Triad in June.

While the event may have justified more, about 50 people attended. One person had this to say:

“We need more of this style of format to find out what the candidates know about the Constitution and how they would apply it and defend it, after all they are required to take an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution.”

And another:

“I would like to see the entire field of candidates seeking the same office participate in this style forum so that we could compare their constitutional knowledge and their commitment to upholding and defending it.”
