Constitution Party on Government Reform

 

 


Oppose mail-in balloting; they're not secret or secure

There is a growing movement within the states and nation to undermine our right of a "Secret Ballot" by making people vote by absentee ballot. This move away from a "Secret Ballot" and "Vote-in-person" approach is an insecure system, not only because the Post office has been losing and misplacing mail for many years, but also because of increasing fraud and vote rigging, such as voter suppression, vote buying, and ballot box stuffing. Even though Vote-By-Mail seems to increase voting percentages in the short-term, it has proven to cause a long-term decline. Also verifying signatures "after the fact" greatly increases the cost of an election. Since true freedom requires being inconvenienced and putting forth extra effort from time-to-time, we oppose any movement to codify or use Vote-By-Mail and other such schemes which undermine the liberty-preserving privilege of voting in secret, in person, at precinct-based polling places

The Voting Rights Act should be repealed

The Voting Rights Act should be repealed. The Federal Election Campaign Act, including its 1974 amendments, and the Federal Election Commission should be abolished.

Repeal all federal campaign finance laws

We call for a repeal of all federal campaign finance laws (i.e. McCain-Feingold) due to their violation of the First Amendment to the US Constitution.
