"No! I reject the premise that a citizen's vote automatically belongs to one of the two major parties. Each voter has been entrusted with a vote. It is their vote, and that person's vote is sacred. That vote was purchased at a high price and that price was the blood and lives of countless Americans. For a candidate or party to assume they have the automatic right to that vote degrades the sacrifices made. A candidate should have to earn that vote."
"The qualifications for governor are plainly defined in the North Carolina State Constitution. I meet those qualifications plain and simple. Refer to the North Carolina's State Constitution, "No person shall be eligible for election to the office of Governor or Lieutenant Governor unless, at the time of his election, he shall have attained the age of 30 years and shall have been a citizen of the United States for five years and a resident of this State for two years immediately preceding his election." (Article 3.2.2)
"As a third party candidate, yes I do believe I can win. I will go out and make my case to the voters for what I stand for. If they like it and I get more votes than the other candidate, then I win"
"The Constitution Party of North Carolina is the only party in this state that believes the government, on all levels, must operate within the framework and constraints of both the United States Constitution and the North Carolina Constitution. It is the only party that is 100% Pro-Life. It's that simple and when you look at it from that perspective, you realize that the differences are not minor, but are in fact, major."
"No. The Constitution Party is pro-government. However, The Constitution Party believes that in a civilized society the 'Rule of Law' must reign supreme. If the government steps outside of its constitutional mandated authority, it's operating outside of the 'Rule of Law'. The Constitution is the document that gives life to the government from the consent of the people. The government must stay within the constraints of the Constitution. Any laws or executive orders that violate the Constitution are null and void."
