I Support the:  Proposed Alaska Constitution Party Platform:  (11/26/11)
 
All members, officers and candidates of the Alaska Constitution Party pledge to promote and implement our party platform to the best of our abilities.  
 
We support:
 
1. Vigorous defense of our constitutional legacy with insistence upon complete local, state and federal government compliance with our Alaska and United States of America Constitutions with an emphasis on Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness for all law abiding citizens, including the unborn. 
 
2. The right of individuals and of citizen militias to keep and bear arms, including legally concealed weapons; and the freedom to manufacture, purchase, trade and train in the use of such weapons and their constituent parts including the unfettered acquisition of ammunition.
 
3. Reviewing the Alaska Constitution, and advocating needed reforms through the convening of an Alaska State Constitutional Convention every ten years. Specifically, we seek to amend the Constitution of the State of Alaska to re-establish the rights of all Alaskan residents to entry upon all public lands within the state, and to acquire private property interest therein, under fair and reasonable conditions. Such property interest shall include surface and sub-surface patent. 
 
4. Reinforcing the understanding of our unalienable rights endowed by our Creator by eliminating the use of the word "privilege" contained throughout Alaska statutes. 
 
5. Preservation and protection of the Alaska Permanent Fund, permanent fund earnings, earnings reserve fund and individual Permanent Fund Dividends. We encourage Alaska Permanent Fund investment within Alaska to promote infrastructure and development projects, including alternative and renewable energy resources. We support the ability of individual Alaskans to voluntarily direct portions of their Permanent Funds to educational, medical, retirement or other private or public investment opportunities they may choose.
 
6. Providing for the direct popular election of the Alaska Attorney General and all Alaska judges and magistrates. 
 
7. The right of jurors to judge the law as well as the facts, according to their conscience, otherwise known as Jury Nullification of the law.
 
8. Land reform in Alaska which provides for the development of unrestricted, statewide, surface transportation and utility corridors as needed for private and public development.  We affirm and assert every possible right-of-way established under R.S. 2477 of July 26, 1866, before its repeal by the Federal Land Management Policy Act of October 21, 1976. 
 
9. Reviewing our over-reliance upon property taxes, and developing more just methods of taxation to reduce and eventually eliminate property taxes altogether. 
 
10. The complete repatriation of our public lands, held by the federal government (other than those due to the Alaska Native people by law), to the people and State of Alaska in accordance with Article 1, Section 8, Clause 17, of the federal constitution. 
 
11. Sustainable and responsible economic development with incentives for creating jobs for Alaskans first, and the privatization of government services when possible.  We generally oppose the borrowing of money by government for any purposes other than for capital improvements. 
 
12. Strengthening the traditional family and supporting individual accountability without unwarranted government interference or regulation.  This includes support of the educational rights of parents to privately or home school their children.
 
 
I Support the Seven Principles Of The Constitution Party:

 

  • Life: For all human beings, from conception to natural death;
  • Liberty: Freedom of conscience and actions for the self-governed  individual;
  • Family: One husband and one wife with their children as divinely instituted;
  • Property: Each individual's right to own and steward personal property without government burden;
  • Constitution And Bill Of Rights: interpreted according to the actual intent of the founding fathers;
  • State's Rights: Everything not specifically delegated by the Constitution to the federal government, nor prohibited by the Constitution to the states, is reserved to the states or to the people.
  • American Sovereignty: American government committed to the protection of the borders, trade, and common defense of Americans, and not entangled in foreign alliances.
