It was good news to hear that the Constitution Party gained enough signatures here in Missouri to be on the ballot Nov.2nd. This gives us conservative advocates of third parties a clear choice on election day. The argument that a vote for a third party candidate is "wasted vote" is part of the "lesser of two evils philosophy".
I'm a member of the Prohibition Party, America's oldest third party still in existence. Unfortunately it will not be on the Missouri ballot Nov.2nd.
As vice-chairman of the Prohibition National Committee and Prohibition committeeman for Missouri and as a conservative, my support must go to those candidates whose views are the closest to the principles of the Prohibition Party Platform. I have found very few differences between the platform of the Prohibition Party and that of the Constitution Party.
Therefore I endorse the candidates running for election on the Constitution Party ticket on Nov. 2.
I will vote for other party candidates for those offices not on the Constitution ballot.
