Constitution Party Offers Conservative Alternative for Young Americans

The Constitution Party attended CPAC, and the young people greeted us quite well. The CP Representatives attending from across the country were pleasantly surprised by their response. After Donald Trump's speech, Turning Point USA gave us the sticker shown below about being AWAKE. Please click here to see our press release about the experience we had with young people at the Conservative Political Action Conference.

Paul Provance our new Treasurer and webmaster is organizing Northern Virginia for the CPV.  Get in touch with him at (703)764-0460 if you live in Northern Virginia and would like to become active in helping to grow this Conservative Alternative. Please leave a message so that he can distinguish you from the many spam callers he hears from.

The Constitution Party of Virginia Helps National Party at CPAC 2018

Chairman Bloom, Vice-Chairman Kraut, and Treasurer Paul Provance assisted in the planning committee and helped out in the National Party's booth at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) 2018 at National Harbor, Maryland on February 21-24.  It was a huge success where the Constitution Party booth may have been the busiest booth at the convention, despite its relatively small size.  People of all ages, but especially young people from late teens through their twenties showed a strong interest in the possibility of another option to the two major parties.

CP of Virginia wants to strongly support a booth at next year's event again, because we get an out sized benefit due to our physical proximity to National Harbor.  However, it costs money.  A prominent booth that comes with a sponsorship that will give the Constitution Party greater access to the media, to advertising, and speaking opportunities would be around $30,000. A modest booth will cost about $13,000 dollars including sponsorship, handout materials, and participant registrations.  This event attracts many local young people, enthusiastic to get involved, and it attracts many local and national media outlets which can magnify our outreach.  Two donations of $7,500, or 130 donations of $100 would cover the cost.

We ask that you consider donating today, to Constitution Party of Virginia's general fund, to support its activities including funding a booth at CPAC 2019.  DONATE


Growing National Debt Will be a Burden on Our Children

ANALYSIS/OPINION:

The American Revolution was sparked by the British policy of taxing the American colonies without allowing them any representation in the British Parliament. This has been commonly referred to as “Taxation without representation.” Well, Americans are now doing this to their own children, and neither the Republicans nor the Democrats seem to care.

What most people fail to understand that the national debt is deferred taxation with interest. When a candidate for public office says he will offer a tax cut that will result in increased debt, that is not a tax cut, but rather a shifting of the tax burden to future generations. The national debt now stands at more than $18 trillion with interest of $266 billion a year.

When Ed Gillespie says he will cut taxes and does not offer any spending cuts to reduce the size of state government, he is hoping that the growth in the economy will continue to grow state government. Most Virginians do not even realize that 22 percent of Virginia’s revenue is dependent on federal tax revenue.

Virginia needs to start reducing the size of state government and a modest tax cut would start to wean Virginia off federal dollars. Is my generation so selfish that we would sacrifice our children and our grandchildren’s futures?

It is time for most of us to do what our parents did for us: Make sacrifices so our offspring have better lives then we did. We all must correct politicians like Mr. Gillespie and tell him that a tax cut that increases debt increases taxes on our children.

JOHN BLOOM.
