    35,937 Votes in the last election cast for Scott Bradley, Constitution Party Candidate for US Senate. The Deseret News needs to find better commentators on elections than Tim Chambless, who states in the article, "(The Constitution Party) usually gets 100 votes and usually from family," said Chambless. "They run with little money and political support." While it is true we are not funded by special interest groups or super PACs, we have broad support and we are the fastest growing party in the US. We also have a lot of diversity politically as many of us who are candidates believe in the Bible, but would characterize our political philosophy as specifically constitutional rather than biblical and would oppose using biblical interpretations as language for law. The fact is that most of us believe the Constitution is THE solution to our national problems of debt, gridlock and loss of individual liberties. The reason we are in the mess we are in is our willingness to ignore or circumvent the Constitution. Please consider this article as another attempt to ignore and marginalize the Constitution Party in the face of evidence to the contrary

    So they want to return the country to Biblical principles in spite of the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment and "don't care if [immigrants'] children were born here," an apparent slight at the Fourteenth Amendment. Which Constitution are they in favor of?
