CONSTITUTION PARTY of AUGUSTA COUNTY
Welcome to the Constitution Party of Augusta County Homepage
Join the Constitution Party in its work to restore our government to its Constitutional limits and our law to its Biblical foundations.
The Democrats and Republicans have squandered the Founders' legacy of liberty and justice under the Constitution. Countless government officials in the legislative, executive, and judicial branches of government ignore their oath to uphold and defend the Constitution.
Seven Principles of the Constitution Party are:
1. Life: For all human beings, from conception to natural death;
2. Liberty: Freedom of conscience and actions for the self-governed individual;
3. Family: One husband and one wife with their children as divinely instituted;
4. Property: Each individual's right to own and steward personal property without government burden;
5. Constitution: and Bill of Rights interpreted according to the actual intent of the Founding Fathers;
6. States' Rights: Everything not specifically delegated by the Constitution to the federal government is reserved for the state and local jurisdictions;
7. American Sovereignty: American government committed to the protection of the borders, trade, and common defense of Americans, and not entangled in foreign alliances.

Declaration of Independence 1776
The Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. It was engrossed on parchment and on Aug. 2, 1776, delegates began signing it.
Articles of Confederation 1777
Adopted by the Continental Congress on Nov. 15, 1777, this document served as the United States' first constitution. It was in force from March 1, 1781, until 1789 when the present-day Constitution went into effect.
Drafted in secret by delegates to the Constitutional Convention during the summer of 1787, this four-page document, signed on Sept. 17, 1787, established the government of the United States.

Biblical Guidance For Christian Voting
Romans 12 is a great resource for a Christian asking how to vote. I refer specifically to verses 2 and 9.
Romans 12:9 instructs us to "abhor that which is evil." There is no exclusion for voting. Christians are supposed to abhor evil. Period. The lesser of two evils'is still evil, and we Christians are not to put our stamp of approval on it.
Don't vote for evil just because everyone else does. Our current form of government (OCFOG), which Hillary, Obama and McCain all fully intend to make larger, costlier and more intrusive than ever, is evil. There is nothing sacred about it whatsoever. No, this is not Kim Jong-Il's North Korea. Yet millions will vote away what is left of our freedom for no better reason than that they want to vote for a winning candidate.
Romans 12:2, which tells us to "be not conformed to the world." It does not go on to say except when voting. What the majority does should be irrelevant to Christians. If 98% of the people cast a stupid vote, it is still a stupid vote.
I graduated from high school in 1984. It has been a while. I do not do things just because everyone else does.
Christians should not support the status quo or "more of the same." The fact that so many Christians are so desperate to win elections -- even if this means voting for all kinds of evil -- or to keep certain candidates from being elected, shows that they have become worldly in a very bad way. Our citizenship is in Heaven, not on earth. (Philippians 3:20) Our King has a Kingdom that is not of this world. (John 18:36)
Our duty is to God, our Father in Heaven. Our focus is on that of His Word. As Chistians, we are to be as Christ instructed us to be. Matthew 7 says that "he who has My (Christ's) commands and obeys them is the one who loves me."
If your worldview is a Christian one, you would realize that there are more important things than winning elections and attaining dominance in the kingdoms of this world. Our duty as Christians is to do what is righteous, not what is fashionable in the world's eyes. Will be able to sleep at night knowing that you did not aid and abet the criminal class that has ruled this country since at least 1913, or will you continue to vote more of the same?
I leave you with two quotes. The first is from Vin Suprynowicz of the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
"Pretend with me that you're an old German on your deathbed today. Would you rather tell your grandchildren, 'I voted for the Nazis because they seemed better than the Communists and no other party could win'? or;
Wouldn't you rather be able to rise up and say, 'I publicly denounced the Nazis and the Communists. We were a minority -- 1 or 2 percent -- but we stood up for the truth and we were right! We proved not all Germans were mindless torchbearers for tyranny! We were ridiculed, we were beaten and jailed, but we saved this nation's soul. Now children, go and live your lives in a way to make me proud.?"
The second comes from Donna Marsh O'Connor, whose daughter died in the World Trade Center on 9/11. She does not buy the official lies and she calls for another investigation.
"God blessed America. And look what we did with it."
I believe that America's Founding documents, while not explicitly Christian, have God's fingerprints all over them. God blessed America richly. And look how we Christians vote these blessings away, just because everyone else does. The true definition of "We, the Sheeple."
