(Apr. 12, 2011) —The following is a news release from the campaign of Tom Miller, presidential candidate, whom The Post & Email interviewed here.

Chairman Floyd,

On Friday April 8, 2011 you announced that the state GOP put a special threshold on who could be eligible for participating in the May 5, 2011 South Carolina Presidential debate. Candidates must have registered a presidential exploratory committee or presidential campaign with the Federal Election Commission, filed paperwork to be placed on the ballot in South Carolina, pay associated state and federal filing fees, and meet national polling criteria consistent with benchmark support numbers used for past debates. Not all the listed candidates have met the requirements, but are expected to.

Neither the Republican Party of South Carolina nor the National Republican Party has the authority to override, bypass or rewrite the Constitution of the United States of America. You do not have the power to create special thresholds that limit the participants to career politicians, millionaires and the ruling elite. Our campaign has been officially registered with the Federal Election Commission and our candidate has met the criteria required by the Constitution of the United States of America under Article II section I to hold the Office of the President of the United States of America.

Therefore, we are formally requesting that Presidential Candidate Thomas J. Miller be invited and allowed to participate in the May 5, 2011 South Carolina Presidential debates. Please forward all information regarding this event to me at jalbero@reducegovernment.com

Regards,

Joe Albero
National Press Secretary

  1. It doesn’t matter what they say. When the time comes you go to the debate and demand to participate. Their dictatorial behavior needs to be confronted directly. The People will support you all the way. If you want to see how it is done, go to You Tube and take a look at “Reagan’s Nashua Moment.”

  2. “The Republicans will never support a true “Constitutionalist” for office. Michele Bachmann is not it, Rand Paul is close….but not it, and Sarah Palin is a JOKE! They KNOW there is an illegitimate government happening right before our very eyes behind the scenes, and they are part of it. America is being pillaged by these people, and her people are being sold out at every opportunity.
    I think we were wrong to even give the Republicans a chance last November, but the Tea Party was still in it’s infancy, and they didn’t think it could last. I believe we were hoodwinked in the hope that all would die down in time, or that they could once again gain an upper hand. Boehner and McConnell will NEVER give up the trappings of their own elitism. I believe West, Bachmann and the others are already being co-opted, and thus their silence on eligibility and Lakin. There are just certain lines that no Rep is going to cross, and those are two of the most blatant.”
    I wrote those words to a fellow Patriot who thinks we MUST keep working on the Reps to fix this. I think NOT!
    It’s time for GOOOH.com and Tea Party Patriots to show D.C. we DO have the power to defeat them, and then DO IT! It means that we MUST regroup, choose Constitutionalists for all offices up in 2012, and then support them till it hurts! When we are finished, not one R or D should be elected in 2012. They should ALL have been replaced with candidates who are willing to do what needs to be done to restore the Constitution. November just proves it CAN be done!

    1. When the RNC didn’t support TEA Party candidates who’d won fair and square the support of Republican voters in the RNC primaries, Republican mouthpieces Rove and Krauthammer going so far as helping her Demonrat competitor by way of bad-mouthing the Republican candidate O’Donnell, I knew without a doubt that the RNC was a private club that doesn’t welcome outsiders or newbies who aren’t first approved by The Republican Establishment.

    2. Amen! May the Lord God help us to do it:o) We can’t keep doing the same thing over and over expecting different results. It won’t happen as long as we keep electing Rs and Ds. Their parties are corrupt to the core. Money and power hungry!

      1. Which is why I voted for Libertarian Kathy Glass for Texas Governor in last year’s election. She was the most conservative candidate in the race.
