Constitution Party
Candidate for Congress

[COMMENT:  The Constitution Party is the only political party with any foundational knowledge of our Constitution and its Biblical underpinnings.   They are a very weak party and not yet able to get their message out.  But their day is coming.   The candidate below looks like a winner.    E. Fox]


Constitution Party

Lancaster, PA 17602 


I'm writing you with urgent and exciting news! For the first time the Constitution Party has a solid shot at winning a seat in Congress.

A true American hero is carrying our party's standard in the October 4th Special Election in California and he needs your immediate help. Jim Gilchrist is the founder of the well known Minuteman Project along the Mexican border.

No doubt you’ve heard about the brave men and women of the Minuteman Project. They’ve taken on the battle that the US government refuses to take on, stopping the tidal wave of illegal aliens who sweep across our borders every day.

Jim led this fight despite the vicious and false propaganda spread about him and the Minute Men by media outlets everywhere. And now he’s courageously stepped up to fill the seat of departing California Congressman Chris Cox.

With your support, Jim can serve as the beacon of truth in the storm of political lies. But he cannot do it successfully without your help.

Jim Gilchrist’s candidacy for Congress is our best chance – EVER – to get "one of our own" into a high-visibility position of influence at the national level.

You see, Jim Gilchrist is a front-runner in this race. His candidacy, NOW, is at the perfect time, because the issue of immigration – where he’s already been a national leader – is receiving (finally!) massive attention from the media and other politicians. 

Jim needs your help TODAY!  Not only to get his message across but also so people have a chance to meet and interact with him, and learn what an intelligent, kind, decent, honorable man Jim Gilchrist is. (See Jim’s Bio below.)

He already has endorsements from some prominent local leaders, including former Congressman Bob Dornan and veteran newsman George Putnam.  But if Jim lacks the financial support he needs, his grassroots won’t be organized to Get-Out-The-Vote, his superb credentials will be ignored, and his candidacy will be buried in a tide of wacko-leftist disinformation by the mainstream media

Please don’t let that happen to a decorated hero, a great American whose courage has already produced an extraordinary shift in Washington regarding illegal immigration and our border crisis.  We can control our borders!  But it takes political will and leadership – the kind Jim Gilchrist has proven he provides.

That’s why I am making this urgent request.

These are such dangerous times that America's very survival is threatened by the unprecedented corruption and betrayal by our ruling elites.

They've opened the door to illegal aliens and called it a "guest worker program."

They’ve used unconscionable tactics to ram through "trade agreements" that will severely damage American lives and livelihoods.

They’ve engaged in an unsavory process of filling Supreme Court vacancies with stealth candidates.

This is a tragedy for America and an outrage for Americans. I’m writing to you because together we are going to stop these abuses.

Without question, the single most important thing we can do is field committed, honest candidates who will honor their oath of office to uphold the Constitution. Jim Gilchrist is such a candidate.

As a member of the Constitution Party (in California our state affiliate goes by American Independent Party), Jim will be doing so much more than running for a single congressional seat. He’ll be spreading the word about the values and principles of the party. Values and principles that Jim shares and has been promoting since he joined our party years ago.

When Constitution Party candidates campaign, voters get to hear something they won’t hear anywhere else. The truth. And Jim has shown his willingness to speak the truth even in the face of attacks by the media and political establishment.

With your help, Jim’s campaign can be a vehicle for sharing the vision of the Constitution Party; a United States that’s strong, independent and free.

·    Free from an invasion of illegal aliens.

·    Free from a system that promotes exporting American jobs.

·    Free from a Supreme Court stacked with partisan hacks who owe their allegiance to the politicians who gave them their jobs instead of the rule of Constitutional law.

You can help us let the rest of America know about our vision. Because I know that if the message can get past the "gatekeepers," it will resonate across the country. Jim Gilchrist’s campaign for Congress is a profound opportunity to deliver that message.

Well intentioned people are always asking "What can I do?" And the answer is actually quite simple.

Help us send a message that will frame the debate and redefine the issues.

Help us let people know that there is an alternative to losing as slowly as possible.

Help us make Jim Gilchrist’s race for Congress a strong and challenging event.

With your help the Constitution Party has stood for limited government, American sovereignty, private property, the sanctity of life, the right to bear arms, and the right to be secure in our homes. Jim Gilchrist is a candidate who will continue to stand up for these beliefs.

Americans are hungry for leaders who still believe in these sacred principles. And the brave men and women who willingly shoulder the burden of carrying our banner are eager to share this vision. But they need our help.

The fact is, campaigns are hard work and expensive. We must do all we can to assist the courageous people who are willing to take up our torch.

Your contribution now is vital to allow Jim’s campaign to buy radio ads and print flyers, because, as I said, time is short.

Thanks for all you’ve done before, and thank you for your help in electing Jim Gilchrist to the US House of Representatives.

James Clymer, Chairman

P.S. The election is just a few short weeks away, on October 4th. Your immediate contribution will give us the greatest opportunity to help Jim Gilchrist mount a serious campaign and spread our message of life, liberty and limited government. Please act today!

Forward this email message to everyone in your address book.

THANK YOU for giving the maximum you can, because THIS IS OUR CHANCE.  Don’t waste it!  As the only candidate who wants to properly secure our borders, Jim can win this race!
