    Strange! I thought the Constitution Party was growing and flourishing since several pro-life state parties dis-affiliated. Maybe all the hype, blather, and hot air from CP leaders is simply that.

    Does the AIP CA have any congressional candidates? If so who are they credited to and how many did the have in 2006?
    It was great to see my state LP chair wearing a ‘no Barr’ button.
