Austin has also asked me to contribute to TPW and I am happy to oblige. I joined the Constitution Party in 2000 after decades of laboring in the Republican Party vineyards. I voted for Howard Phillips for president in 2000 and Michael Peroutka in 2004. My state party disaffiliated from the Constitution [...]

Saturday, December 9th, 2006

What we really still need is someone from [...]

Austin’s Campaign Update

Tuesday, October 17th, 2006

I’ve been a little swamped lately with campaign stuff and other unrelated activities, but I’m going to try and be more active in keeping this site updated as we approach November.

I figured I’d start off today with a little update on my own campaign. This doesn’t have anything to do with third party politics [...]

Getting to Know Me, Getting to Know All About Me

Wednesday, September 27th, 2006

Hello, folks. As you quite likely noticed, Austin recently invited me to become a legit contributor to TPW and I happily accepted.

Long Weekend

Monday, June 26th, 2006

Sorry for the lack of updates for the last few days, I took a long weekend and went down to Kennedy Space Center for a few days.

I’m a Filthy Republican…

Thursday, June 22nd, 2006

I’ll say it one last time for anyone who missed it the first 10 times. I am a registered Republican voter. I registered to vote in 1999 and went with the Republican designation so I could vote in the 2000 Presidential primary.

I voted for McCain. In November, I voted for Harry [...]

Finals Week

Wednesday, April 26th, 2006

Hi everyone, I just wanted to post quickly to explain why I haven’t been keeping the site updated as frequently as I’ve wanted to in the past couple of days.

Basically, it’s final exam week and I’m a little swamped right now… but rest assured that TPW will continue on strong in the weeks and months [...]

We Want Your Stories!

Tuesday, April 18th, 2006

I’m considering doing a new feature on the site that will give readers a chance to share some of their own experiences. Basically it would be an occassional item (maybe weekly?) that told the story of how a person came to belong to a third party and in what ways they’ve been active and [...]
