The National Alliance
The Constitution Party of Oregon voted on Thursday, September 5, 2013, to join with other independent American political parties in the construction of a national alliance based on three foundational principles: (1) The Creator God in heaven, made known to us through the Holy Scriptures, rules in the affairs of men and is the ultimate King, Lawgiver, and Judge of all mankind. He is to be honored and His Word is to be heeded if we expect to receive His blessing on the works of our hands individually or corporately; (2) the Family is the first and highest civil institution designed by God to propagate, educate, and nurture human life. Both Church and State are to support and defend that institution; and, (3) God has assigned the first priority of civil government to protect innocent human life from conception to natural death, to protect freedom of conscience, and to protect private property. This is best served by the Constitutional Republic which our Founders gave us and which we are committed to restore.
The purpose of the Alliance, as expressed in its Covenant, is as follows: to provide all voters registered or associated with its affiliated parties in the several States with a unified vehicle to achieve three objectives: (1) to create an opportunity to express political hopes and aspirations, (2) to develop a consensus on the proper role and function of government based upon the American Heritage of individual rights and responsibilities under God, and (3) to effectively channel energy into political changes that satisfy those hopes and aspirations and reflect that consensus by electing candidates to public office, adopting resolutions, organizing boycotts, etc.
The Alliance is the outgrowth of a project called the Clarion Call To Unite Committee, chaired by Cody Quirk in cooperation with the National Independent American Party chaired by Kelly Gneiting. It will be holding a founding convention later this year to finalize governing documents and elect leaders. We anticipate that many leaders of the allying parts will roll over into positions of leadership in this alliance, with the combined experience of great benefit to us all. This will definitely be a situation where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
Some have criticized our state party for 'going it alone' for many years, but we were unable to find a good fit before this. Perhaps you will find a good 'fit' with us now, too.
