U.S. NEEDS LOYALTY TO CONSTITUTION

SHARE U.S. NEEDS LOYALTY TO CONSTITUTION

The recent congressional elections show the electorate's frustration and opposition to the practices and policies of the Clinton administration and many Democrats. But the shift in party strength does not guarantee a return to constitutional government - as Sen. Bob Dole's recent announcements supporting GATT demonstrates.

The growth of Republican Party influence in the Congress will not be the panacea for our nation's problems as many expect, as past Republican support of NAFTA, the Crime bill, the Brady measure and a host of other measures not authorized by the Constitution clearly demonstrates.America faces many critical issues that will have tremendous impact on us all. What America needs is an informed, educated and concerned populace, and men and women in Congress, from either political party, who are loyal to the Constitution, not to any political party.
