What is the Constitution Party?

The point of this blog is to educate America about what is going on in ...America. I listen to Republican radio ALOT, and so I thought that I was pretty well informed on the news. I listen to Rush and Glenn Beck... and I've never heard of the Constitution Party. Have you?

Apparently, it is the third largest party... granted it's small but listen to what it stands for...
"The Constitution Party gratefully acknowledges the blessing of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as Creator, Preserver and Ruler of the Universe and of these United States. We hereby appeal to Him for mercy, aid, comfort, guidance and the protection of His Providence as we work to restore and preserve these United States."

That's just the beginning of the preamble... it goes on to talk about the sanctity of human life, limited government, public respect for public officials, congressional reform, the purpose of government to defend, and countless other things that I stand for. Does that mean that I should join this party? Should I click on the "Get Involved Locally" button?

Wonder who will win the Biggest Loser finale? Where's that book I was reading? I really need to wash some clothes. Do we have milk for breakfast tomorrow?

Sure, we all have individual lives that rarely ever cross paths. We have needs, and wants that go beyond party systems. But I want a government that really will "provide for the common defense and promote the GENERAL welfare", and I can't do it alone. I'm not gonna push the button for now. I'll wait to see if anyone else is out there. Does that make me a coward?
