Listen to the interview here:
"I have already intimated to you the danger of parties in the State, with particular reference to the founding of them on geographical discriminations. Let me now take a more comprehensive view, and warn you in the most solemn manner against the baneful effects of the spirit of party generally. This spirit, unfortunately, is inseparable from our nature, having its root in the strongest passions of the human mind. It exists under different shapes in all governments, more or less stifled, controlled, or repressed; but, in those of the popular form, it is seen in its greatest rankness, and is truly their worst enemy.
The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a more formal and permanent despotism. The disorders and miseries which result gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of public liberty.
Without looking forward to an extremity of this kind (which nevertheless ought not to be entirely out of sight), the common and continual mischiefs of the spirit of party are sufficient to make it the interest and duty of a wise people to discourage and restrain it.
It serves always to distract the public councils and enfeeble the public administration. It agitates the community with ill-founded jealousies and false alarms, kindles the animosity of one part against another, foments occasionally riot and insurrection. It opens the door to foreign influence and corruption, which finds a facilitated access to the government itself through the channels of party passions. Thus the policy and the will of one country are subjected to the policy and will of another.
There is an opinion that parties in free countries are useful checks upon the administration of the government and serve to keep alive the spirit of liberty. This within certain limits is probably true; and in governments of a monarchical cast, patriotism may look with indulgence, if not with favor, upon the spirit of party. But in those of the popular character, in governments purely elective, it is a spirit not to be encouraged. From their natural tendency, it is certain there will always be enough of that spirit for every salutary purpose. And there being constant danger of excess, the effort ought to be by force of public opinion, to mitigate and assuage it. A fire not to be quenched, it demands a uniform vigilance to prevent its bursting into a flame, lest, instead of warming, it should consume."

The Daily Caller
Jimmy Carter says he would be “comfortable” with a Mitt Romney presidency, although he still expects [Alleged] President Barack Obama to win re-election in the fall.
“I’d rather have a Democrat but I would be comfortable,” the former president told MSNBC in a segment aired Wednesday. “I think Romney has shown in the past, in his previous years as a moderate or progressive… that he was fairly competent as a governor and also running the Olympics as you know.”
Vice Presidential Nominee,
Conservative voters don't vote for liberal politicians. Both Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are liberal politicians. As Mr. Hoefling has said many times, Republicans may be conservatives, or they may support Mitt Romney--but they may not do both.
Principled patriotic American voters don't vote for candidates who are opposed to America's foundational principles. Both Barack Obama and Mitt Romney hold a number of positions that are directly opposed to America's foundational principles. Republicans may be principled patriotic Americans, or they may support Mitt Romney--they may not do both.
Pro-life voters don't vote for pro-abortion candidates. Both Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are pro-abortion candidates. Republicans may be pro-life, or they may support Mitt Romney--they may not do both.
With the impending Republican nomination of Mitt Romney for president, it is becoming increasingly difficult to deny that patriotic, pro-life conservatives are no longer allowed any real voice in the Republican Party. But patriotic, pro-life, conservative Republicans are welcome in America's Party.
"A Socrates quote that in my opinion could be applied directly to all the conservatives who have wasted their time, energy and treasure on the Republican presidential nominating process this year: 'He is not only idle who does nothing, but he is idle who might be better employed.'”

Former Navy Chaplain Finally Endorses a Presidential Candidate (not who you think)
In my capacity as a private citizen, I have finally decided to endorse a candidate for President of the United States, (and it's not who you might think).
As you know, I have not yet endorsed any candidate. I have instead faxed non-partisan voter guides to tens of thousands of churches, comparing the voting records of Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul.
This election year I received a personal phone call from Newt Gingrich, and we talked privately for several minutes about his strategy to reach pastors. His campaign ultimately did not follow my advice, nor did he reach out to my thousands of pastors as I suggested.
So I am not endorsing Newt today.
This year I conducted a non-partisan "straw poll" and over 1,000 of my constituents voted approximately 42% Santorum, 21% Gingrich, 12% Paul, and 3% Romney.
But I am not endorsing Rick Santorum today.
On May 5th I will attend my 3rd college graduation ceremony, earning my PhD in Theology from Regent University, where my fellow alumna Michele Bachmann will give the commencement address. I personally donated to Michele's campaign this year.
But I am not endorsing Michelle Bachmann today.
Last fall I co-sponsored a big prayer rally with Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX) called "The Response: A Call To Prayer For A Nation In Crisis," and held a solemn day of fasting and prayer for America, in Houston Texas.
But I am not endorsing Rick Perry today.
Yesterday I personally attended the Colorado GOP convention, and I ran for national delegate to the RNC convention in Tampa Florida, and I was not elected, which is fine, because I'm relatively new to the Colorado process, and I did not expect to win.
Sadly, I discovered a terrible injustice to the Colorado voters.
Romney won 35% of Colorado's public vote, but got 70% of pledged delegates to Tampa.
Santorum won 40% of public vote, but got 18% of pledged delegates to Tampa RNC.
Because Colorado caucuses are "non-binding" the peoples votes DO NOT COUNT, and the pro-establishment process is entirely unfair and contradicts what the voting public intended. Colorado must move to a "binding caucus" process, or the Denver establishment will continue to run rough-shod over the Colorado Springs Christian community, whose votes were effectively thrown in the trash.
Mitt Romney will likely be the GOP nominee, but I am not endorsing Mitt Romney today.
If you want a list of ten reasons I will NEVER support Mitt Romney for President, you can read the article I wrote last October for Worldnet Daily, here. I know all the arguments, but I just cannot violate my conscience by supporting a pro-abortion, pro-homosexual Republican. I just can't do it.
SO WHO IS CHAPS ENDORSING FOR PRESIDENT?
Few of you know I serve as the national chaplain to America's Party, which was founded by a group of us who served with Alan Keyes for President in 2008. I was Alan's driver, chaplain, and I was one of several Vice-Presidential candidates with Alan. But our dear brother is not running this year, so I am not endorsing Alan Keyes today.
But conservative Christians (who care about principle over party) really do have an alternative to Mitt Romney this year. If you wish to preserve your conscience, as I do, you can still vote for a principled, conservative candidate for President.
I hereby publically endorse, and I will vote for Tom Hoefling for President of the United States in 2012, and for his vice-Presidential candidate J.D. Ellis. If possible I will help Tom and J.D. gather signatures to get on the ballot in all 50 states, and I request pastors and principled, Christian conservatives please help them. If they fail I will write them in.
If you want to know why I support Tom Hoefling for President, get to know him here, and you will soon understand my reasons.
If you stand for Christian liberty, the right to life, traditional marriage, please consider affiliating with America's Party with me, and dial into one of Tom's free, weekly conference calls every Tuesday or Thursday night at 9pm EST.
You are not required to leave the GOP to affiliate with America's Party. They have open membership rules allowing many affiliates from many political parties to join. You do not need to donate. (In fact both the Party and the Candidate REFUSE your money.) You simply must agree to uphold their principles, which exactly match those of our founding fathers in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States.
I've looked at other "third party" options. They're all flawed in major ways. But this one has the potential to become the real deal. Pro-life, Pro-defense, Pro-economic freedom.
Something is wrong in America. Something is wrong in the GOP. We all sense it. By affiliating with America's Party, we don't have to renounce the GOP entirely, but neither must we support pro-abortion, pro-homosexual candidates endorsed by the establishment. I can't do it, and I know many of you can't either.
As Christians, we dare not stay home, but we still have a choice.
As a Christian American, I will support Tom Hoefling for President of the United States.
God Bless you, in Jesus' name,
Chaplain Gordon James Klingenschmitt, PhD
