Resolution For Adhering to Constitutions, the Rule of Law, and the Intent of the Framers of our United States and State Constitutions and West Virginia, Specifically.
passed unanimously by the Constitution Party National Committee on 25 April 2015 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Whereas, the Preamble of the United States Constitution states that by it, We the People established Justice and secured the Blessings of Liberty;
Whereas, the framers of the United States were explicit in their intent that the government be constrained by constitutionally enumerated powers as stated in the Tenth Amendment;
Whereas, the Tenth Amendment also guarantees that all powers not dedicated to the Federal Government and not prohibited by the Constitution were left to the individual states and people;
Whereas, under the plea of necessity, via the War Powers Act of 1933, Congress gave the president dictatorial powers which continue to this day unabated because the declaration of emergency has never been officially terminated thereby creating a United States Constitutional crisis;
Whereas, the West Virginia Constitution states in Article 1, Section 3; “Continuity of constitutional operation. The provisions of the constitution of the United States, and of this state, are operative alike in a period of war as in time of peace, and any departure therefrom, or violation thereof, under the plea of necessity, or any other plea, is subversive of good government, and tends to anarchy and despotism.”, thereby creating a West Virginia Constitutional crisis;
Whereas, the legislative, executive, and judicial branches of West Virginia have been served by West Virginians Phil Hudok and Gene Stalnaker, with a “First Amendment Petition for a Redress of Grievances and Breach of Contract”;
Whereas, it is stated in the Declaration of Independence that because men are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life liberty, and the pursuit of happiness and because governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, it follows that it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it;
Be it resolved by the Constitution Party National Committee, that we publicly demand that the people’s representatives in all three branches of West Virginia government acknowledge that a constitutional crisis exists and to immediately begin to rectify what is currently a clear and present danger to the liberty and wellbeing of its people.
Furthermore, we encourage patriotic Americans everywhere to join in support of the people of West Virginia and people in all fifty states of the United States in re-establishing the rule of law as intended by our forefathers.
