‘Doctor No, the Three Musketeers and the Seven Dwarfs’

Analysis of GOP Candidates Shows

Only One Makes Grade For Those Asking WWJD?*

(*What Would Jefferson Do?)

Lancaster, PA (July 24, 2007) An article published by the Constitution Party this past week titled “Dr. No, the Three Musketeers and the Seven Dwarfs” has rank and file Republicans nodding in agreement at the assessment that only one candidate gets a passing grade for adherence to constitutionally-sound politics even among the so-called “conservative” candidates.

The widely circulated analysis scrutinizes the voting records of all 11 Republican presidential contenders. Physician turned Congressman Ron Paul,(R-TX) dubbed ‘Doctor No’ for consistently voting against un-constitutional programs, higher taxes and big-government spending, appears to be the only clear choice for those who’d advocate a return to constitutionally-based government.

The article says of Congressman Ron Paul: “He alone in the entire GOP lineup is the only one who voted against the war in Iraq. On every single issue he is a pure, unadulterated, founders-woulda-loved him conservative. In the words of former Treasury Secretary William Simon, Dr. Paul is the ‘one exception to the Gang of 535’ on Capitol Hill. So many men, so few true Constitutionalists.”

The Three Musketeers, Tancredo, Hunter and Gilmore have solid positions on some issues but none make the ‘constitutionally-correct’ grade”, the article points out.

Giuliani, McCain and Romney- so far to the left constitutional conservatives couldn’t possibly consider voting for them- are included among The Seven Dwarfs, along with Huckabee, Brownback, Thompson and Gingrich.

Pollster John Zogby commented: “47% of Republicans are… very dissatisfied. Only 21% percent of Democrats feel this way. So it’s looking … like the Democrats are pleased with their candidates.”

Constitution Party National Committee Chairman Jim Clymer added: “And the Republicans are not. Is it any wonder? The politics of the so-called ‘front-runners’ Giuliani, McCain and Romney have so disheartened the GOP faithful that many are vowing to either sit out the election or go with a third party candidate.”
