CPV Appeal to Reassociate with National Constitution Party Rejected

May 3, 2020

On April 14th 2020, the CP of Virginia State Central Committee voted five to zero to reassociate with the national Constitution Party. This comes ten months after disassociating from the same organization last June. Members of the CP of Virginia attended the National Convention on May 1st and 2nd that was held by teleconference because of stay at home orders relating to the current Covid-19 pandemic.

Two members of the Constitution Party of Virginia were running for the national party nomination to be President of the United States. They were Samm Tittle and Charles Kraut who attended the National Convention teleconference as Convention Delegates. Chairman John Bloom and Treasurer Paul Provance attended the teleconference, but as National Committee Members rather than delegates.

The fact that the National Convention was being done by teleconference is a significant factor in why the CP of Virginia decided to reassociate. It is expensive, somewhere near $1000 per person, to attend the convention and semi-annual National Committee Meetings in person, so allowing remote attendance allows more members to attend these meetings at lower cost. The national party's policy of not allowing members and delegates to attend remotely was a major reason why the CP of Virginia disassociated last June.

On May 2, 2020, the Constitution Party National Committee of the national Constitution Party voted not to reestablish affiliation with the Constitution Party of Virginia.  The CP of Virginia remains an independent state political action committee.

On that same day, the National Convention of the national Constitution Party voted to select Don Blankenship of West Virginia as it's nominee to be President of the United States.  In the second round of voting, Don Blankenship received 177 votes, Charles Kraut was second with 87 votes and Samm Tittle received 21 votes.

CP of Virginia Participates in Lobby Day

January 21, 2019

John Bloom, James Easterly, and Paul Provance participated in the Virginia Citizen’s Defense League Lobby Day event on Martin Luther King Day.  Everyone assembled at 8:00 am on the lawn of the Capital on a brisk day where high’s only reached the middle 20's.  James and Paul accompanied a group into the General Assembly office building, but then broke away to visit the members from their legislative districts to encourage them to support ranked-choice voting.  This new voting system, if adopted, will be beneficial to third parties as well as have other benefits.  John remained out in the cold to do networking and to visit with members of the media.  Everyone returned to the Capital lawn at 11:00 am to listen to speeches supporting gun rights.  John gave a five minute speech to rally participants on how Martin Luther King was denied a concealed carry permit by the State of Alabama.  The text of his speech is written below.

Ladies and Gentleman,

This is a day to honor the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, who though he was a man of peace and Minister he had the courage to stand up against injustice.  In the 1950s and 1960s in the South they treated people differently, solely by the color of their skin, and not by the “content of their character”.  On January 30th, 1956, someone threw a bomb into Dr. King’s house in Alabama, though no one was hurt, it prompted Dr. King to apply for a concealed carry permit, to protect himself and his family.  In this day and age, Dr. King would have all the justification in the world to be granted a concealed carry permit.  However, blacks were treated differently back then in Alabama, and the Alabama authorities had discretion on who to grant a hand gun permit to and denied Dr. King the concealed carry permit.  That was Gun Control in the 1950s.  The Gun Owners of America put it best on a poster showing Dr. King with these words, “Gun Control:  Denying Rights of the People the Government doesn’t like since RECONSTRUCTION.”  Let us honor Dr. King by fighting for the rights of LAW ABIDING Citizens to be granted a concealed carry permit to protect one’s self and family.  God Bless you all, God Bless America and God Bless the Constitution of the United States of America.
