After Irreconcilable Differences Lead To Split With GOP, Alan Keyes Invited To Party

 

Lancaster, PA- Responding to news that former Reagan administration official Alan Keyes has officially left the Republican Party, (http://www.usatoday.com/news/politics/2008-04-16-keyes_N.htm) Constitution Party National Committee Chairman Jim Clymer applauded the move and extended Keyes an invitation to become part of the fastest-growing third party- the Constitution Party.

 

“You can almost hear a nationwide standing ovation. Ambassador Keyes joins millions of Americans abandoning the party that long ago abandoned them.  Keyes had the courage to say what a lot of folks have been thinking for years- that the Republican Party’s leadership is way out of touch with its base”, Clymer added, saying:  “ We encourage Dr. Keyes and his supporters to discover there’s a perfect fit for them. We no longer have to endure elected officials who defy the will of the people. There is an option in the Constitution Party”.

 

Former United Nations Ambassador Alan Keyes announced his break with the Republican Party at a speech in Hazleton, Pa, a city known for Mayor Lou Barletta’s aggressive efforts to stop illegal immigration.

Keyes said the two political parties now controlling our government are “a sham” and encouraged his audience to demand a return to the way the founding fathers meant it to be when they wrote the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence.

 

Keyes said the “Republican Party has come to a dark and confused place.” ““Dark and confused” are terms that apply to the Republican Party’s handling of just about every issue facing America today”, Clymer noted, agreeing with Keyes. “From appalling complicity in the illegal invasion, to historic trade deficits, assaults on civil liberties and out of control spending, the Republicans have sold out their base time and again. Alan Keyes’s break with the GOP is a real shot in the arm for Americans who’ve come to the conclusion the Republicans can no longer be considered the party of conservatives”, Clymer added.

 

The Constitution Party, the largest and fastest-growing third party based on voter registration (Ballot Access News) will choose a presidential candidate at its national convention,  April 23- 26th in Kansas City, Missouri.(http://constitutionparty.com/view_events.php). Dr. Keyes is scheduled to address the gathering of delegates from all 50 states. Alan Keyes will be encouraged to offer delegates his plan for returning America to its constitutional foundation.

    there is never gonna be a party or person who i always agree with either the key is to understand how government is supposed to work aand how to reform it if it no longer works toward the prosperity of we the people once we look to one person or party we cause a power vacuum unless you are equipped with the knowledge that we are endowed with certain unalienable rights so a mutual respect for a common cause is created instead of looking for a cause to respect
