Standing Firm on Principle and Upholding our Constitution in South Dakota

Tuesday, April 8, 2014

Full-steam ahead!!! Money bomb happening now........

Although we have had some temporary setbacks, we have good people working on these issues.  The smartest thing we can do now is to push forward in strength towards our state convention and the nomination of many strong and passionate candidates for November 2014.  

We will be having planning meetings for our upcoming state convention in which your participation is greatly encouraged.  The date has tentatively been set for June 21st, however, we are in search of a venue for this event.   You may participate in planning meetings via conference calls.  You will need to reply with your phone number if you wish to participate so that I can arrange the call.  In addition, we will start having monthly meetings in Sioux Falls at the main library which will be set-up in the coming week. 

Candidates for the following offices will be nominated at our state convention.  We need to provide South Dakota voters with a large slate of good Constitutionalist choices on the ballot in November.  A true Patriot does not retreat when times get tough; they forge ahead with even more vigor!

Attorney General
State Auditor
State Treasurer
Secretary of State
Public Utilities Commissioner
Commissioner of Schools and Public Lands

In addition, we are looking for leaders to become County Chairmen throughout South Dakota to help us organize and build our party. 

Some ideas being considered for convention if monies are raised to cover expenses would be to have a workshop/lecture series called "The Dirty Dozen: What every constitutional officer should know", taught by constitutional Attorney Richard D. Fry.  Possible Keynote speaker ideas: Stewart Rhodes, Chuck Baldwin, or ???.

In order to have a great state convention and provide support for all of our nominees in the months ahead toward the general election, we are in urgent need of donations to help with essential costs moving forward.  Please consider donating whatever you are able to through our state blog by hitting the "Donate" button to pay by debit card, credit card, paypal or you may make checks payable to: Constitution Party of South Dakota. Please spread around the link to our state blog:  www.constitutionpartysd.org

Petitioning crunch time is fast approaching!


It is crunch time and many long-time members of the party have not signed petitions yet for gubernatorial candidate to get on the ballot. 

As you all know, we MUST get Curtis Strong on the ballot in order to retain ballot access in our state.  The Strongs have been working day and night on this effort and have brought over 90 brand new members into the CP.  It is time for all current members to sign these petitions so we do not lose our status as a party again in SD.

If you are a member of the Constitution Party of South Dakota and have not yet signed the petition, please call me asap so we can arrange to get your signature. 605-251-5045.

 If you can help in your area, here is petition so you can download, you MUST copy onto a 2-sided piece of paper before signing.

South Dakota for Freedom rally IS POSTPONED until June.

Unfortunately, we are going to be postponing the SD for Freedom event until after the primaries, the new date will be determined in the next few days and take place in June.

***Attorney Richard D. Fry will still be coming to South Dakota for a speaking tour of our state March 7,8 & 9.  Specific dates, venues and times to be announced shortly.  The purpose of his visit to our state is to discuss the dangers of a proposed Constitutional Convention.

If you belong to a group that would like Richard Fry to come and speak to, please contact me so we can coordinate his schedule and details.  605-251-5045

It is IMPERATIVE that we get enough signatures on petitions to enable Curtis Strong to get on the ballot for Governor.  Many of you worked so hard in the past obtaining over 11,000 signatures in order to get our status back as a state party, once again, in South Dakota.  Now, we must have over 250 signatures of registered CP members and at least 2.5% of the vote in November in order to keep that ballot access as a party in the future. 

All of this nonsense is the direct result of the actions by R's and D's that have put UNCONSTITUTIONAL bills into "law" in order to strip away any resemblance of free and fair elections in America today.  We The People were supposed to enjoy complete freedom of ballot access for the average citizen, meeting just some very basic requirements to run for office. 

ALL meetings and speaking events will have Curtis Strong's petitions available for signature.  You can also download the below pages of petition to gather signatures in your area, just remember you MUST make the copies onto a 2-sided sheet of paper before obtaining signatures.

 If you are in the Sioux Falls or Rapid City areas, we will gladly run the petitions to you for your signature.

The Democrats and Republicans have been in leadership throughout our nation for well over 100 years, it is time for all Independents and all minor parties to unite and TAKE AMERICA BACK to THE rule of law, our US Constitution!  It is too late for them to apologize for over a century of their own failures.

In freedom and justice,

Lori Stacey
State Chairwoman

End of the Year MONEY BOMB!!!

As many are aware, it took a lot of time, money and effort to successfully get back our status as a state party in 2012. These activities had depleted our funds.  As we are now ending 2013, it is critical to step-up fundraising efforts to jump start us into the 2014 election season.

We intend to increase our party-building efforts throughout the state and it is important to end this year on a positive note with money in the bank to help us raise public awareness of our party, its principles and further attract phenomenal constitutionalist candidates in the coming months.

Please consider helping out today, we have not asked for money all year and it is critical that we have a good showing for our party in time for the end of the year reports.

You can either click on the "Donate" button to contribute with PayPal or a major credit/debit card. If you prefer Dwolla, scroll down and click our party icon. Others preferring to pay by check, please make check payable to: Constitution Party of South Dakota and mail to the address at bottom of state blog.

For Freedom & Justice...........Let's get rolling!!!
