Dear Member,

 

 It’s now time to gear up for the 2020 election and re-organization year.  We need to field candidates and re-organize the party, i.e. elect county officers in one or more counties and elect SC State officers of the SC Constitution Party.

 

We will get started with an important meeting on Sat. morning, Oct 19 at 9:30am.  until noon,  at the Taylors Library, 316 W. Main St. Taylors, SC.

                                                BRING A FRIEND

 We will be discussing our members running for various offices, how we can do more,  how we deal with Google which has been dismantling our web site, but most important, we want to meet and get to know our new members. Dale Clinbeard will brief us on “vote ranking” and the positive aspects of doing away with voting for the lesser of two evils and how it might help our Cons. Party.

                                                IMPORTANT DATES

After Jan. 1st 2020, Greenville County and/or other county conventions* can be held for purposes of both organizing the County and for nominating candidates.

Noon on March 16, 2020,  period for candidate filing opens.

Noon on March 30, 2020,  period for candidate filing closes.

March 31, 2020, last day for holding County Conventions* 

April 16, first day for holding State Convention*                *denotes required legal

May 15, last day for holding State convention              notices 3 and 2 weeks prior

 We would like to honor our new members in North Augusta, SC who organized and ran three candidates for a special election for City Council and achieved a great vote count, but not quite enough to win.  We hope that they can attend this meeting and tell their story. There’s more, but we want them to tell us. 

Welcome to our new members!

Abbeville: J.T. Timmons. Camden: Jimmy Crissman. Charleston: James Williams. Easley:  Melanie Coker. Mauldin: Rev. Charles Roberts. North Augusta:  Steve and Martha Bryant, Stetson Corbitt, Stephen Donahue, Elizabeth Jones, Allen and Kimberly LaFavor, David and Jan Leverett, and Kenneth Powell. Simpsonville: Thomas Plesser. Taylors: John Hilton.

 

Most of our reasonably informed citizens are still leaving it up to the Republican Party.  No one has to tell you that this is a big mistake. SC State Rep., Jonathon Hill,(R), from Anderson, writes that the Democrats are introducing bills that could not be passed if it were not for the Republican’s  help. Hill is one of our top rated legislators.  Jonathon is listed in our operation “RIGHT SC”. Because of his courage, commitment and his constitutional stands, he was barred by the Republicans from the 2019 SC Republican Caucus. We need more men like Jonathon Hill. Send donations to: 1031 Double Springs Rd., Townville, SC 29689.

 

What groups, if any, are working for a better informed  electorate? Where are our Christian churches? Almost all are absent from the battlefield. Are Christians making any effort to be good stewards of the freedoms given to us by God in the form of a Christianity based representative Republic? Good stewardship is impossible without knowledge and understanding, including  some action.  Thomas Jefferson said, “A nation that expects to be both ignorant and free, expects what never was and never will be.”

 

Christian congregations regularly support all manner of evil with their vote because they remain ignorant.  A few years ago, Senator Jim De Mint, a former marketing expert, was the darling of Christians because they perceived him to be strongly pro–life.  No one knew that Jim always voted to pass the annual bill that funded PLANNED PARENTHOOD, and even leaders still don’t know which bill it is.

 

Neither did they know that their vote for Jim was a vote to help fund the costs of crucifying 1,000 Coptic Christians in Egypt. They were hung from telephone poles by their own government which was the largest recipient of millions of US aid.

 

Jim helped vote down a bill that would have reduced aid to Egypt by 1% to show our disgust with this atrocity against Christians.  He also cast the deciding vote to confer “Most favored Nation” status for red China despite its then policy of murdering the second child born in a family. Today, most church members are not any better informed. 

 

I recently went to the governing board in our church because I could no longer ignore the lack of application of biblical principles to our lives and to civil government.  I based my case for being involved in civil affairs on Amos 5, verses 23 and 24 in which God tells his people that he does not want to hear their music as long as they are not active in promoting “Righteousness and Justice”. Our Lord wants righteousness and justice and expects action instead of lip service.

 

Think of what the addition of thousands of informed and knowledgeable voters, Christians, being “Salt and Light” could do for righteousness and justice in South Carolina. But they don’t have a clue; still are voting against their own professed beliefs and too many ministers are afraid of saying anything, including the truth, that involves civil government.

 

I am not saying that our party should begin a drive for educated Christian voters, but I hope to hear at our meeting, what your thoughts are. Please bring at least one “fed up” friend.

 

Looking forward to seeing you at our meeting on Sat. Oct. 19, at 9:30 am at the Taylors Library.  Bring a friend.

 

Best regards,

Ted Adams

SC Senator Tom Corbin accepts three campaign donations checks from a rival political party.
The SC Constitution Party members made donations to Republican Senators Tom Corbin, Kevin Bryant and Lee Bright whom they say are the three best Senators in SC.

Ted Adams, State Chairman of the Constitution Party, said the three were honored because they all kept their election promises, and have fought hard for the best interests of all South Carolinians. We appreciate their outstanding courage and work for the people, and not for the special interests who are supplying loads of cash to their opponents in the upcoming June 14th. Republican Primary.
Reelecting these three men is crucial because they have been the leaders in defeating legislation such as the outrageous GAS tax bill, and introducing the Bathroom Bill which would preserve safety and sanity in our public bath rooms. They refused to vote to fund Planned Parenthood, the organization that has sold human baby parts.
