Message from Idaho Constitution Party Chairman

Dear Friends of Liberty,

This is Paul Venable, Chairman of the Constitution Party of Idaho. On Friday, April 20, I spoke at the recent meeting of the National Committee of the Constitution Party. The National Committee met in Boise on Friday and Saturday, the 20th and 21st. As the host chairman I was asked to offer the welcome remarks.

I felt the opportunity and message important enough that I want you to know what I said and understand that I feel very strongly about it. Those of you who know me understand that I would not intrude on your felicity unnecessarily, nor trifle with your time.

The core of the message, particularly having to do with the family, is one that needs to be heard by every parent, pastor, elected official and educator in the state - and beyond. Look for the Constitution Party of Idaho to aggressively promote and support the role of the family, the principles of Constitutional limited government and the essential bond between the two. With that in mind, please find below the links for address.

My desire is that you may discover these words to be of value and if so, I hope you will share them. I pray that you will give due consideration to this message, notwithstanding the weakness of the messenger.

The video is here and is just under 13 minutes.
You can also find links to the audio and print version from the Constitution Party of Idaho home page. There is more information forthcoming about the National Committee Meeting in Boise.

Thanks so much to the many of you who are promoting the cause of liberty and supporting the efforts of the Constitution Party. For those of you who are new to us, please consider this invitation to join or support the work of the Constitution Party of Idaho.

Best Regards,

Paul Venable

    Looks like the link to the video had some encoded spaces in it, rendering it unusable. Here’s the fixed link (if the message parser doesn’t break mine too): http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-8516497587357779998&hl=en

    The Constitution Party, the 3rd largest political Party in the United States of America, has for sometime been concerned with the usurpation of power by the Federal Government. We also have been concerned with the Real Id Act of 2005, a Division B of an act of the United States Congress entitled Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act for Defense, the Global War on Terror, and Tsunami Relief, 2005, Pub. L. No. 109-13, 119 Stat. 231 (May 11, 2005).

    This Act, set to take Effect on May 11, 2008, would:
    -impose undue financial costs on the State of North Carolina
    -take from the State of North Carolina powers left previously only to it, of the issuance of drivers’ licenses
    -place a citizens personal information on a card that could be used for criminal gain, with the possibility of financial and medical information. This card would be swiped through readable technology, instead of the traditional method of police interview.
    -Be used for possible checkpoints throughout the United States.
    As Congressman Ron Paul (R-Tx) has said:
    This legislation gives authority to the Secretary of Homeland Security to expand required information on driver’s licenses, potentially including such biometric information as retina scans, finger prints, DNA information, and even Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) radio tracking technology. Including such technology as RFID would mean that the federal government, as well as the governments of Canada and Mexico, would know where Americans are at all times of the day and night. (Ron Paul -A National ID Bill Masquerading as Immigration Reform, Before the US House of Representatives, February 9, 2005)
    Therefore, we the members of the Constitution Party of North Carolina-in solidarity with the Legislature of Maine and several other states now considering similar measures, call on our elected North Carolina State Legislators to pass this resolution:
    WE, the Members of the Legislature of the State of North Carolina now assembled, most respectfully present and petition the President of the United States and the United States Congress, as follows:
    WHEREAS, the federal REAL ID Act of 2005 mandates an unfunded national driver’s license on the people of North Carolina, and;
    WHEREAS, implementation of REAL ID would cost North Carolina taxpayers approximately $200-$400 million (conservatively out of the $11 billion total cost), and;
    WHEREAS, the REAL ID national database will invite theft of identity and invasion of privacy, and;
    WHEREAS, REAL ID will impose inconveniences and higher taxes on North Carolinians with no attendant benefit such as protections from terrorism; now, therefore, be it
    RESOLVED: that North Carolina State Legislature refuses to implement the REAL ID Act and thereby protest the treatment by Congress and the President of the states as agents of the federal government; and be it further
    RESOLVED: That the North Carolina State Legislature implores the United States Congress to repeal the REAL ID Act of 2005; and be it further
    RESOLVED: That official copies of this resolution, duly authenticated by the Secretary of State, be transmitted to the Honorable George W. Bush, President of the United States; the Honorable Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff; the Honorable Michael Easley, Governor of the State Of North Carolina; Richard Cheney, President of the United States Senate; Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the United States House of Representatives; and each member of the North Carolina Congressional Delegation.

    We, the Members of the Constitution Party of North Carolina, do call upon the elected Legislators of the State of North Carolina, to pass this resolution without delay. We call on the North Carolina Legislature to pass laws interposing the power of the State of North Carolina, between her citizens and this unconstitutional attack on their liberties and welfare.
