Constitution Party of Virginia Attends CPAC

March 20, 2019

The Constitution Party was represented at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) which occurred at National Harbor, Maryland, February 27 to March 2. The effort was financed through the Constitution Party of Virginia. Randy Stufflebeam from Illinois, Bryan Bending from Ohio, John Bloom and Paul Provance from Virginia, worked the booth. We collected contact information from people from six different states that we forwarded to the respective chairpersons for follow-up. Additionally we talked to many more people who we gave our information to, and hopefully they will be inclined to contact the Constitution Party in their states. We were fairly busy for the 15 hours that the Hub was open, with activity nearly constant. Randy interviewed a wide variety of attendees, including Matt Waters, Libertarian candidate for US Senate in Virginia. John was interviewed by CSPAN, which occupied the next booth over from our location. Thanks go out to Constitution Party members in New York, Massachusetts, Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, and Virginia who contributed to the effort and made our appearance at CPAC happen.

What Kind of Nation Will We Leave Our Children?

February 5, 2019

For too long, both major parties have ignored the religious and cultural values that once bound our nation together. We in the Constitution Party seek to reverse this failure in our system. We must force our government to act responsibly, and safeguard our people and its way of life. We dare to be normal, peaceful, and frugal. We dare to enter the future while holding fast to the truths of the past. Join us as we advance toward a better future of integrity, liberty, and prosperity.

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.

James and

Constitution Party of Virginia Members Attend National Meeting

Constitution Party of Virginia (CPV) Chairman John Bloom and Treasurer Paul Provance attended the Constitution Party National Committee Fall meeting on November 16 and 17, 2018.  The two day conference was held at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Irving Texas near the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.  The CPV is increasing its participation at this semi-annual event, but was not yet able to field the five members it is authorized for the National Committee meeting.

The first day was for training and strategy sessions.  One session was given by David Kopacz of Massachusetts who described his efforts to form a party in his state.  His party was accepted into the National Party as the Massachusetts State Affiliate the next day.

The second day was filled with discussion on bylaw amendments and resolutions from 8:00 a.m. until after 5:00 p.m. One resolution that was put into effect by administrative action was proposed by our own John Bloom.  A direct link for state party donations will soon be available on the National website.  Three bylaw changes were passed at the meeting, one corrected some ambiguous language, one restricted voting on bylaw changes at National Committee Meetings to people physically present when meetings include video conferencing, and one increased membership on the Executive Committee to include all former vice-presidential nominees and all past chairmen.

Constitution Party of Virginia Attends Faith and Freedom Coalition Conference

The Constitution Party of Virginia and the Constitution Party of Maryland helped sponsor the Faith and Freedom Coalition "Road to Majority" conference, June 7th-9th at the Omni Shorham Hotel in Washington, DC.  John Bloom of Virginia and Michael Bertocchi of Maryland manned the Constitution Party table in the exhibit hall and spoke with people at the conference.

Several officials from the Current Administration and congressmen of the Federal Government addressed the conference, and Vice President Mike Pence delivered the keynote address.

The Faith and Freedom Coalition has tremendous influence with our national, state, and local governments.  A majority of attendees who came to the Constitution Party table knew about our party and many knew Constitution Party Southern States Regional Co-Chairman Ricardo Davis.  A number of people from Virginia showed an interest in the Constitution Party, and we will be making an effort to contact them and to see how they can work with us in our efforts to grow the party, put Constitutionists on ballots for public office, and win elections.  If you have not been contacted, but would like to get involved with the Constitution Party of Virginia, please see the information on this page below.

The Constitution Party of Virginia Holds Planning Meeting in Northern Virginia

The Constitution Party of Virginia held a barbecue and meeting on May 12 to plan how it will organize in Northern Virginia. Chairman John Bloom and his wife Renee drove up from Newport News. He explained current strategies and priorities of the state party, especially regarding publicity and interacting with the media. The treasurer, Paul Provance, gave a financial report and listed some of the Party’s priority needs for contributions and funding.

A political discussion brought out these points.  The current two party system is disregarding principles. It seems that winning is all that matters to the two leading parties. They disregard many issues that our government should be addressing to focus only on one or two issues to differentiate themselves in order to gain political advantage. They disregard the people, making promises to get votes but then breaking those promises. 

John Holland, Northern Virginia Coordinator, put forward the Constitution Party’s long term goal of restoring American governance to its constitutional intent. He proposed short term goals to have chairmen in every county and independent city, and to hold regular meetings and events. Paul Provance and Renee Bloom served appetizers, potato salad, hamburgers, hot dogs, and ice cream.
