The Politics of Lucy Van Pelt

“A reproof entereth more into a wise man

than an hundred stripes into a fool.”-Proverbs 17:10

By Riley J. Hood—Milwaukee County Constitution Party-Sent out 3/30/17

            Growing up I read enough of Charles Schultz’s Peanuts cartoons to be familiar with the antics of Lucy Van Pelt.  Lucy was a one trick pony who always offered to hold the football for Charlie Brown and then pulled it away at the last moment: Every single time.  She never had to try something new because Charlie Brown never decided to stop listening to her.

            Guess what Charlie Brown?  She did it again, more accurately the Republican Party FAILED to repeal Obamacare.  I said as much in “Repeal and Replace?”  It doesn’t take psychic powers to notice an active pattern of the Democrat Party introducing Socialist measures, such as the Income Tax, SSI, Welfare, the US Department of Education and Obamacare: then having the GOP fail to remove such evils, after they made campaign promises to do so. Once again, the political football has been snatched away, and the effort to kick Obamacare into the ash heap of bad ideas has failed.

            Guess what?  The GOP won’t change as long as you keep listening to them.  They do the same thing over and over again because it works every single time.  We started the Constitution Party so that you could support candidates that won’t treat you like you are Charlie Brown.  It takes a lot of work to transform a “minor party” into a major political party, but America needs some political competition from the Right.    

“The Minister of God”

For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil,
be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is a minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.” Roman 13:4

By Riley J. Hood-CPoW State Chairman

            The Constitution Party of Wisconsin is a Bible-based political party; as such we apply the Christian world-view to politics and the civil authority. We are Christians first, and Americans second. It seems we have been misunderstood, even to the point where some view us as power hungry people who confuse our duties to God with our duties as American citizens. Good citizenship is not divorced from being a Christian. Continue reading

Drugs and Guns Don’t Mix

Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves as servants to obey;
whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?” Romans 6:16

By Riley J. Hood-CPoW State Chairman

            Every decent gun training course will tell you that guns and drugs or guns and alcohol do not go together. The instructor is stating this for practical and tactical reasons, such as “sight alignment and sight picture.” If you are under the influence, you can and will miss your target, or shoot an innocent person, or shoot someone that you wouldn’t have when you were sober.  Being under the influence lowers your inhibitions, numbs your conscious and dissolves your self-restraint.

Why Are They Still Here?

There is a way that seemeth right unto a man,
but the end thereof are the ways of death.” Proverbs 16:25

By Riley J. Hood-CPoW State Chairman

            The Hemlock Society USA was a national “right-to-die” organization founded by Derek Humphrey in 1980. In 2003 the national organization renamed itself Compassion in Dying and End of Life Choices. In 2005 it merged with other groups and is now called Compassion & Choices. Continue reading

Gun-Control: It’s Not About Crime

Keep thee far from a false matter, the innocent and the righteous slay thou not: for I will not justify the wicked” Exodus 23:7

By Riley J. Hood-CPoW State Chairman

            Every time a “teen-ager” in Milwaukee shoots a little girl, the Dishonorable Tom Barrett calls a press conference and lisps that we need more gun-control to reduce the crime that he subsidizes. This leads the Pro-gun defenders off onto a rabbit trail, debating statistics that the average citizen doesn’t remember. Continue reading

What is a Patriot?

Of Zebulun, such as went forth to battle, expert in war,
with all instruments of war, fifty thousand,
such as could keep rank, they were not of double heart.”I Chronicles 12:33

By Riley J. Hood-CPOW Chairman

            America has no shortage of armchair “patriots,” barstool “patriots,” bowling alley “patriots,” pool hall “patriots,” pot-head “patriots” neo-nazi “patriots” and “Gay Americans,” who have no sense of the meaning of “lives, fortunes and sacred honor.”  The Constitution Party of Wisconsin is looking for real Patriots.  What does a real Patriot look like? Continue reading

The Addiction Tax

“The robbery of the wicked shall destroy them;
because they refuse to do judgment.” 21:7

            The Libertarian pursuing his dream of Anarchy wants to legalize every vice under the sun and he calls that freedom. In an effort to achieve his bath-house utopia, he says, “If it is legal, then you can tax it.” In other words, he uses a hypocritical argument, to appeal to the easy money politician. I point out their rank hypocrisy, because their anarchist philosophy calls for the elimination of all taxes, yet they are advocating the creation of new taxes to promote their pet sins. Continue reading

The “Closet”

The shew of their countenance doth witness against them;
and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul!
for they rewarded evil unto themselves.” Isaiah 3:9

By Riley J. Hood-CPoW State Chairman

            You’ve been inundated with the moronic statement, “I’m so proud he came out of the closet,” for at least the last thirty years. But what does the sodomite and the sodomite supporter mean by that? It means said pervert is no longer sinning in secret, or private, but he is now in your face and demands you cater to his said perversion. What sodomites call “the closet,” normal people call “the bedroom.”   Continue reading

Holy Homosexuals?

It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father’s wife. And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned,that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you.” I Corinthians 5:1-2

By Riley J. Hood-CPoW State Chairman

            “The opposite of homosexuality isn’t straightness, it is holiness,” is the latest retreat from Biblical truth. The “holy homosexual statement,” coupled with the “they will be celibate anyways,” excuse led to the inclusion of sodomites in Roman Catholic Church life, and contributed greatly to the “priest abuse scandal.” (This is now happening in Protestant Churches and I don’t want to see this repeated.)
