    This is about his VP running mate Scott Bradley's letter to the editor. It's an LDS religion based argument against voting for "two-party dolts". Controversial perhaps, but I like it.

    A word on voting from Scott Bradley himself

    Darrell Castle on the Issues

    AMERICA’S FOUNDATION OF LIBERTY

    • What I Promise

    “If God raised me up and made me President of the United States, what I told the states, what I told you I would do, I will do, or die trying. So help me God.”
    (Acceptance Speech, Salt Lake City, 16 April 2016)

    • Adherence To The Constitution

    The Constitution is the charter of liberty for the American Republic. It is much more than just a piece of paper or just a legal document. It is evidence of the grand design the founders left us and it secures the rights that God granted to us.
    In the Declaration of Independence Mr. Jefferson told us that we are endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights and to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men. That is the purpose of government and the reason why the Constitution was and is necessary.

    Adherence to the Constitution brings liberty and ignoring and denigrating it brings tyranny.
    That’s why my political party is the Constitution Party. It is not perfect but it is the best there is.

    • Withdrawal From The United Nations



    I believe that the United States (U.S.) should regain its sovereignty and chart its own course. This is not isolationism. The U.S. cannot remain isolated from the forces agitating today’s world, which is so interrelated in trade, finance, instantaneous communications, etc.

    How does America deal with other nations while keeping our sovereignty, our freedom, and our independence intact? Can the U.S. keep its own laws and Constitution, set its own policies, or do we surrender to the decisions and dictates of an international collective of nations?

    Many people, including many in our own government, would love to see American nationhood fade into history. They fear not only the power of America, but also the ideas that still make us the most powerful nation on earth. Those ideas serve as a contradiction to the way the rest of the world operates, and would serve us even more if we were once again an independent nation.

    The overwhelming success of the U.S. politically, economically, and culturally, depends upon a set of ideas–religious, political, and legal that set us free to worship, think, and act as free Americans. Those ideas have never been replicated anywhere else on earth. Material prosperity springs from that freedom and it is a renewable resource as long as freedom remains.

    The ideas of America are not compatible with membership in the United Nations (U.N.). The U.N. is world headquarters for the church of unbelieving humanism. The fundamental doctrine of the U.N. is that the world should be a global collective, redistributing shares of material prosperity to every human on earth. That is a religious and not a political idea. Faith in God is replaced by faith in Humanity. The U.N. is the sanctuary of the idolatry of Man. To U.N. believers its very name is sacred, inspiring awe and devotion. The earth is the great mother who produces some resources but not enough so rationing is the result. Some have to be taxed so rationing can occur and provide equal shares.

    Injuring the earth is the crime of injuring the great mother. This thought process takes them back to ancient pagan days of gods thought to be mythical but are in reality satanic. When the U.N. headquarters was built in 1946, a meditation room was included in which the only object is a rectangular black rock symbol of the underworld thrust up from the world below. The ideas of the U.N. are in direct opposition to the ideas of America.

    Collective action is the U.N. Globalist strategy to weaken and isolate America. We are, therefore, more isolated in the U.N. than we would be out of it. It is intended to isolate the U.S. a little bit at a time lest we awaken from our slumber and withdraw. Little by little the Lilliputian strands are woven tighter and tighter.

    The very existence of the U.N. is an affront to liberty and human dignity. Many of the inherent rights in the US Constitution are superseded by the United Nations Charter, including the right of self-defense. We must free ourselves from the notion that the U.N. is vital to U.S. interests. It is not. If the American people do not understand these things, then it is imperative that we educate them.

    • End the Federal Reserve


    I would end the Federal Reserve’s control of the United States’ monetary system by repealing the Federal Reserve Act. Interest rates would no longer be tampered with, as lenders and borrowers would set their own rates.
    I would remind the banks that there would no longer be a Federal Reserve to lend to them in an emergency so if a bank gets in trouble, it’s on its own.

    Then I would let the American people know that they are now free to use whatever currency they want. The dollar would again be exchangeable for a fixed quantity of gold and the U.S. Treasury would now accept any major currency, including bitcoin, in payment of taxes.

    As a result, the country would return to a traditional and sensible money system so people could decide for themselves what kind of money they wanted to use. They could save it, spend it, or put any price they wanted on it if they wanted to lend it out.

    • Agenda 21


    Private property rights are under assault in communities and rural areas across the nation as state and federal authorities move to enforce new planning development programs, particularly under the labels of Sustainable Development or Local Visioning.
    Local elected representatives are being overshadowed by the establishment of non-elected boards, councils, planning commissions and regional governments. These non-elected organizations are taking government further away from the people as they are unseen and unapproachable. While totally unaccountable to the people, they enforce policy that affects property rights, tax rates, etc.

    Across the nation communities are being pressured by federal agencies to accept grants for local sustainable projects that affect property rights and destroy local control. He who pays the piper calls the tune.

    I would withdraw the federal government from such international, sovereignty destroying legislation. I would stop the federal government from manipulating local communities with handouts, and begin the process of handing control of their lives and property back to the local people.

    • Pro-Life Stance


    If you’ve ever made a statement that you will never vote for someone who is not pro-life, or who supports abortion, and if you are really serious about that statement, then you only have one choice in this election. I am the only candidate of any party that is 100% pro-life or even close to it.

    Unlike Hillary Clinton who recently said, “unborn persons have no constitutional rights”, I know that all “persons” have the right to life and both the 5th and 14th amendments confirm that position. I also know, as does Mrs. Clinton in the deep recesses of her heart, that those waiting in their mother’s womb to be born are in fact persons.

    There are many things that a Constitutional President could do about abortion but I will give you just three.

    1. Veto and refuse to spend every penny of funding for Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers.

    2. Confirm the validity of the 10th amendment and the states’ right to decide their own laws.

    3. Recommend to Congress, and work to convince Congress, to take away the Supreme Court’s jurisdiction over such matters.

    Castle is a very logical, streamlined speaker. I heard him at an Alternative Candidate forum at Vanderbilt in 2008. He was the VP candidate then. He connected very well with a majority socialist-leaning student audience. The Socialist candidate was there, and I seem to recall he got alot of applause along the way.

    Castle is also someone who is camera friendly. He's not really good looking, but where I was sitting was near where the video monitor was. He frames well. In a TV age, this is something that absolutely cannot be ignored.

    Just like some Libertarian positions are obnoxious to Christians, some Constitution positions might be obnoxious to secular thinkers. This is why we have the House and Senate. The constitutional balance of powers matters.

    I would vote for him if the election were today. The Constitution Party itself seems rather... theocratic, but this guy reminds me more of Ron Paul.

    Copied down Darrell's stance on marriage as best I could from C-SPAN. About 8:00 on the video: http://www.c-span.org/video/?408188-...stle&start=463

    If you take same sex marriage as a social issue, if you want me to comment on that. I'm a Christian so you know I personally don't believe in it. But I believe the government has no place in marriage to begin with. The government wants you to buy a license to do everything. But in my view marriage is an act between us and God. God determins what marriage is and its not up to the government. So it shouldn't be a government licensed event in any case.

    That stance is more comforting then the CP official platform.
    The most important element of a free society, where individual rights are held in the highest esteem, is the rejection of the initiation of violence.

    Darrell can't be assessed by the CP platform any more than Rand Paul and Mitt Romney can be by the GOP platform.

    No but he will be a registered write in. Meaning if you write in Darrell Castle/Scott Bradley it will be counted the same as any other vote. That's how it was with Chuck Baldwin/Darrell Castle in 2008.

    I think he is a good candidate and one of the best ways for people to vote their conscience. Though it may be more pragmatic and strategic to vote for Johnson.
    Authoritarianism and neoconservatism cannot be made great again.
    Trump was an enemy of Ron Paul, before he was an enemy of Rand Paul, before he was an enemy of the Freedom Caucus.
    One thing that he has remained consistent in is his hate of liberty and those who promote it.

    I think his principles share the same foundation for moral code that benchmark the fundamental principles of Individual Liberty itself as they relate to the traditional American philosophy of governance.

    So that's my final word on it so far as a Liberty evaluation goes toward a prospective candidate running in Liberty.

    I care very little for the notion that policy defines Liberty. It doesn't. And it can't. Nor will it. Liberty is established by principles. Not policy.
