Des Moines, IA – Tom Hoefling of Iowa and J.D. Ellis of Tennessee were nominated last night as the 2012 Presidential and Vice-Presidential candidates for America’s Party.

The America’s Party national convention also ratified its 2012 platform, adding additional private property rights language, and replacing its old pro-life language with the full text of the “Equal Protection for Posterity Resolution.”

America’s Party is being built by Reagan pro-life, pro-family, “peace through strength” conservatives who believe that the Republican Party has abandoned the principles of Ronald Reagan -- particularly the Reagan pro-life platform plank which recognizes the personhood of the unborn and their protection by the Fourteenth Amendment. 

In a statement released this morning at their new campaign website,, Hoefling and Ellis made the following comments:

“As the 2012 America's Party nominees for President and Vice-President, we are currently seeking one million patriotic, principled, committed Americans -- men and women who understand the critical need for an immediate return to the principles of our nation's founding.

Together, let us strive to restore America’s moral, economic, and physical strength, in order to fulfill the ultimate stated purpose of our Constitution: ‘to secure the Blessings of Liberty to our Posterity.’

We have an obligation to our children and grandchildren to take back our political system from the money and media interests, and to put the power back in the hands of We the People.

Please sign up now at for regular email updates and additional information on what you can do from your own front porch to help put America back on its proper foundations, and return us to principled, constitutional government of the people, by the people, for the people.”

Congradulations Tom and J.D.
I was a founding member of the U.S. Taxpayers Party in 1992. In 2000 we changed our name to the Constitution Party.
We slowly grew and drew many good men and women from around the country. We also attracted unprincipled men who were willing to compromise on our anti-abortion stand. This led to its present ruin.
A political party is not the church. Compromises are necessary. But we should never compromise on a bedrock Godly principle to attract monied men.
