We, the members of the Constitution Party of Minnesota, an affiliate of the U.S. Constitution Party, do acknowledge and revere the benevolence and sovereignty of God and the eternal salvation offered to us in Jesus Christ, the Son of God. We invite people of all faiths who adhere to the principles herein to join us, while realizing the Constitution Party affirms that government has limited jurisdiction over the affairs of men and nations; and that rights are endowed by God, not by any group of mortal men.
We support a strict adherence to the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, the Minnesota Constitution, as originally written and intended, and the underlying principles provided us by our American founding forefathers. We seek to uphold a republican form of government with a limited role that protects the rights of its citizens in the Sovereign State of Minnesota. Each of us has a natural right from God to defend his person, his liberty, and his property.
These are the three basic requirements of life, and the preservation of any one of them is completely dependent on the preservation of the other two. The collective organization of the individuals’ right to lawful defense should be the basis of our state laws. Government shall respect the rights of the members in a society; those in higher authority shall respect the rights of those in lower authority; for example the federal government shall not intrude into state matters, nor state into local, city and county matters.
We believe that moral principles are necessary for the preservation of a republican form of government. We will strive to restore to the republic a limited government given us by our American founders. We shall work to reverse the tightening grip of socialism, tyranny, and the culture of death imposed upon us by the anti-Christian and anti-constitutional legislation and judicial decisions. We shall do this as swiftly as possible without compromise of essential principles and thereby restore
greater freedom to Minnesotans.
With a large reduction in taxes and a return to limited government, administered by officials of good character, families and individuals will have greater prosperity and will have a better opportunity to get along on one income. This will result in parents being able to freely raise and educate their children with their own resources, and citizens being able to volunteer more freely in the church and community as they choose.
