Keyes Openly Courting Third-Party Idea

Alan Keyes has really gone out on a limb, to the point of no return I think. In a recent WorldNetDaily article , Keyes stated that his campaign has focused on the traditional values of America, protecting marriage, life and the nation, and he said it isn’t an issue of his leaving the GOP, but of the GOP moving away from its traditional moorings, where he remains.
The author of the article seems to like this idea, suggesting that many “national conservative figures” have “drank the Kool-aid on McCain”. Keyes went on to say, “The system has been hijacked. There no longer is a commitment to the U.S. Constitution. I think Americans deserve an alternative. Elections ought to be about choices.”

Of particular interest to this blog is that one of its frequenters was mentioned:

Gary Odom, the national field director for the party, told WND the party’s convention in Kansas City will determine the candidate.

“Anybody with a sense of reality can tell we have a ways to go, [but] we are making progress,” he said.

He said the time is ripe in 2008.

“If there is a Judge Moore who would step forward, you couldn’t find a better time.”

The three front-runners, he said, offer virtually nothing different among them.

“You get big government either way,” he said. “Your vote is the currency of your virtue. People should vote for what they believe in.”

He cited the old definition of insanity: trying the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

“Why shouldn’t we try something different. Let’s get back to the Constitution and not ignore what made this country great for its first 150 years,” he said. “I think there is a great desire for something different.”

    What part of the constitution empowers the federal government to “protect” marriage?

    I agree with Gary Odom, the national field director of the Constitution Party that the convention in Kansas City will determine our candidate for president. But we need to take Allen Keys very seriously. I also agree with Gary that, the time is ripe in 2008 for our party to become a serious robust and influencing factor in the next the election.

    Yes it is time for people to vote for what they believe in.” It is true that it is insanity to continue to vote for the same two political parties who will do the same things.
