Both the Democratic and Republican Parties have long since departed from any real concern for upholding the Constitution of the United States, or the values and founding principles our nation was originally built upon. The primary mission of the Constitution Party is to sound the alarm and to call America back to her roots and God-given destiny. Our primary purpose together is to provide a clear, strong alternative to the voters of New Mexico. The means of doing this will be through a grass roots movement that focuses on educating and mobilizing the population. To do this we will have to challenge the very systems and ideologies that have brought us to this place. And we will have to do it against tradition and popular opinion and without endless reserves of money, lobbyists, and media coverage. We must remain clear that our primary focus is the political arena - not religious, economic or militaristic. In order to achieve our goals, we will not allow ourselves to be divided or sidetracked by personal or minor differences; nor by an unhealthy preoccupation with secondary issues or tangents that will not be understood or accepted by most Americans. We will strive to educate, empower and prepare New Mexicans for the future, whatever that may hold. We will challenge and even oppose all ideologies and trends that take us further away from these founding principles and values.
